on the BBC News Channel. I'm back with the News at Ten. Now it's time

:00:00.:00:00.

for the latest where you evening on the BBC News Channel, but

:00:00.:00:00.

I'm back at 10pm. Hello and welcome to Look North.

:00:00.:00:11.

A man has appeared before magistrates in North Shields accused

:00:12.:00:14.

of causing a fire on a North Sea Ferry. Six people had to be winched

:00:15.:00:18.

off the DFDS ship just off Bridlington on Saturday night. It

:00:19.:00:23.

has been revealed that the cost of the damage could be more than

:00:24.:00:29.

?800,000. Damian O'Neil reports. The King Seaways ferry was 25 miles

:00:30.:00:33.

offshore on a regular overnight sailing to Amsterdam when a fire

:00:34.:00:38.

broke out in a cabin. RAF helicopters airlifted six people to

:00:39.:00:43.

hospital after breathing in smoke. A man was detained on board and this

:00:44.:00:46.

morning 26`year`old Boden George Hughes from Sunderland appeared at

:00:47.:00:52.

North Tyneside Magistrates' Court. He is accused of affray and arson.

:00:53.:00:57.

Hughes appeared in the dock wearing a grey sweatshirt and jeans. He

:00:58.:01:01.

spoke only to confirm his name and address. The court heard that the

:01:02.:01:05.

cost of the damage caused by the fire was estimated at ?815,000. He

:01:06.:01:11.

was remanded into custody and will appear at Newcastle Crown Court on

:01:12.:01:20.

the 14th of January. The premature death rate for men in

:01:21.:01:24.

Hull with a serious lung disease is double the national average. Local

:01:25.:01:29.

health officials say around 7,000 people in the city have Chronic

:01:30.:01:34.

Obstructive Pulminary Disease. But there are fears that there are

:01:35.:01:37.

thousands more people with the condition who haven't yet been

:01:38.:01:40.

diagnosed. More from our health correspondent, Vicky Johnson.

:01:41.:01:45.

Sandra finds it difficult to breathe because she has COPD, the name for a

:01:46.:01:50.

collection of chronic lung diseases. But special exercise programmes,

:01:51.:01:53.

like this one in East Hull, can help. We've proven that we can

:01:54.:01:57.

actually improve their standard of the lung function, although that's

:01:58.:02:04.

not a given. They'll also improve on the distance that they're able to

:02:05.:02:09.

walk. We know we're not going to get any better but we have to cope with

:02:10.:02:13.

it and these...these show us how to do it. After the end of the session,

:02:14.:02:19.

you know, like six weeks, you feel a lot better. It's the actual walking

:02:20.:02:22.

that's getting me, walking round and round. It's getting better in me

:02:23.:02:26.

legs. But before they can take steps to improve their health, people need

:02:27.:02:30.

a diagnosis. It's thought many thousands of

:02:31.:02:33.

people here in Hull don't even realise they have COPD because they

:02:34.:02:36.

put their increasing breathlessness down to ageing or simply being a

:02:37.:02:42.

smoker. The sooner the condition can be diagnosed, and treatment begins,

:02:43.:02:45.

the less chance there is of serious lung damage.

:02:46.:02:50.

While there is still no cure for the disease, new drug treatments will

:02:51.:02:54.

offer relief from some of the worst symptoms. A lot of people die in

:02:55.:02:58.

hospital from these breathing attacks that they get. If we can

:02:59.:03:02.

prevent the attacks coming on, which is the main thing we're trying to do

:03:03.:03:06.

with the drug treatment, then that will decrease the mortality from

:03:07.:03:12.

this horrible disease. Blow! Keep going, keep going. The number of

:03:13.:03:16.

local people with COPD is likely to remain among the highest in the

:03:17.:03:19.

country until smoking rates are drastically reduced. Meanwhile,

:03:20.:03:23.

thousands could be struggling on alone because they've haven't yet

:03:24.:03:31.

got a diagnosis. A 27`year`old man being questioned

:03:32.:03:34.

following the death of a woman in Hull has been released on police

:03:35.:03:38.

bail. 23`year`old Rebecca Day died at Hull Royal Infirmary in the early

:03:39.:03:42.

hours of Sunday morning. She had been found at a flat on Peel Place

:03:43.:03:47.

with serious injuries. The police have confirmed her death is being

:03:48.:03:50.

treated as suspicious and their investigations are continuing.

:03:51.:03:57.

Fire fighters across East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire have started a six

:03:58.:04:00.

hour strike. Crews walked out just moments ago, at 6:30. It's the

:04:01.:04:04.

eighth time since September that industrial action has been taken.

:04:05.:04:07.

It's because of a row between the Fire Brigades' Union and the

:04:08.:04:15.

Government over pensions. The resolve of firefighters is getting

:04:16.:04:19.

stronger. We have massive public support and they realise that they

:04:20.:04:24.

do not want to see 60`year`old firefighters responding to

:04:25.:04:26.

emergencies and there are no background jobs. Every firefighter

:04:27.:04:30.

is still in the service at 60 then they will be in the fire engines.

:04:31.:04:33.

A lack of volunteers means that street pastors won't be out on the

:04:34.:04:36.

streets of Lincoln tonight. Volunteers from local churches

:04:37.:04:38.

usually patrol the city centre, helping anyone in need. But there

:04:39.:04:42.

aren't enough people available. It's the first time in six years that the

:04:43.:04:46.

group has been unable to go out on New Year's Eve.

:04:47.:04:48.

A Lincolnshire Councillor says he will sue the leader of UKIP, Nigel

:04:49.:04:52.

Farage, over comments he's made in the press about him. Chris Pain

:04:53.:04:56.

became a UKIP councillor in May but was later expelled from the party.

:04:57.:05:00.

He's told the BBC that he will challenge the decision to expel him

:05:01.:05:04.

in the High Court and he'll also sue Nigel Farage for defamation of

:05:05.:05:09.

character. A couple from Lincolnshire who

:05:10.:05:12.

raised thousands of pounds for Hull Royal Infirmary are among those to

:05:13.:05:15.

be recognised in the New Years Honours List. Tony. And Ruth Knowles

:05:16.:05:20.

from Sutton on Sea will receive the British Empire Medal, as Jake

:05:21.:05:33.

Zuckerman reports. `` Tony and Ruth. Tony and Ruth Knowles have raised

:05:34.:05:36.

?134,000 for equipment for Hull Royal Infirmary. Their daughter,

:05:37.:05:39.

Emma Jane, was treated there for a brain tumour but passed away in

:05:40.:05:42.

1998. The couple have both been awarded the British Empire Medal. It

:05:43.:05:45.

means a tremendous amount. And, also, it's not only just for us,

:05:46.:05:49.

it's for all our friends and everybody that's helped us over the

:05:50.:05:52.

last 15 years. Also receiving the BEM is Odette Mitchell from North

:05:53.:05:55.

Ferriby, a volunteer instructor at Hull Kung Fu Club. I don't expect

:05:56.:05:58.

anything in return, I enjoy doing that. It's really nice to know that

:05:59.:06:02.

people have appreciated what I've done, yeah. During Odette's time at

:06:03.:06:07.

the club, dozens of vulnerable youngsters have received her help

:06:08.:06:13.

and support. Let's find out what the weather has

:06:14.:06:17.

in store for the rest of New Year's Eve.

:06:18.:06:17.

Let's find out what the weather has in store Paul Mooney has the

:06:18.:06:19.

forecast. Good evening. Well, if you're out

:06:20.:06:22.

and about seeing in the New Year, not looking too bad overnight. One

:06:23.:06:25.

or two showers creeping into western areas so you're more likely to catch

:06:26.:06:29.

a shower in Sheffield than you are in Skegness. Most places do stay

:06:30.:06:32.

dry. It will feel chilly, though. Temperatures down to three or four

:06:33.:06:36.

Celsius at the lowest. And breezy with it, as well. So we start off

:06:37.:06:40.

dry on New Year's Day. Make the most of that while it lasts because as we

:06:41.:06:44.

head towards lunchtime, the next band of very wet weather comes in,

:06:45.:06:47.

spreading from the West. The afternoon, there, sees heavy

:06:48.:06:50.

downpours across much of the region. As well as wet, it will be windy as

:06:51.:06:53.

well. Strong, gusty South to Southeasterly winds making it feel

:06:54.:06:56.

cool as temperatures only peak at around about eight Celsius, which is

:06:57.:07:00.

36 Fahrenheit. So that's how New Year's Day is looking. The rest of

:07:01.:07:03.

the week looks unsettled as well. `` 46 Fahrenheit. Another band of

:07:04.:07:07.

stormy weather on the way by the time we get to Friday. So keep in

:07:08.:07:10.

touch with your latest forecast on your BBC local radio station. We'll

:07:11.:07:14.

keep you updated on the travel news online as well.

:07:15.:07:15.

46 Fahrenheit. Another band of stormy weather on the way And you

:07:16.:07:17.

can always get the latest forecast on the BBC weather website.

:07:18.:07:20.

Take care if you're heading out tonight. That's it from Look North

:07:21.:07:23.

for this year. We're of course back tomorrow at 1pm. Until then, do

:07:24.:07:25.

enjoy your New Year's Eve. Bye bye. Good evening. It looks like mother

:07:26.:07:44.

nature may provide her own pyrotechnics in the run-up to bid

:07:45.:07:48.

night tonight. We have some heavy showers in western parts, starting

:07:49.:07:52.

to ease a bit across Scotland and Northern Ireland. But the showers

:07:53.:07:58.

further south are heavier, with some flashes of lightning as they move

:07:59.:08:02.

eastwards. They do get a bit more hit and miss as we head towards

:08:03.:08:06.

midnight, but a greater chance of getting wet in the south as we move

:08:07.:08:12.

into 2014. Cardiff and London could see heavy downpours. Further north,

:08:13.:08:16.

you could be greeting the New Year on a dry note. A touch of frost in

:08:17.:08:23.

northern and eastern areas going into New Year's Day. A few showers

:08:24.:08:27.

continue into the morning, but on New Year's Day, we have a few more

:08:28.:08:32.

heavy showers coming in. Rain pushing into the west, where the

:08:33.:08:39.

ground is saturated already. Persistent rain pushing its way

:08:40.:08:40.
