a million New Yorkers celebrated 2014 in the traditional way. There's

:00:00.3:59:59

more throughout the evening A Grimsby mother whose son was

:00:00.:00:11.

killed at a notorious accident blackspot near Lincoln says she's

:00:12.:00:14.

unhappy at the lack of safety improvements at the junction.

:00:15.:00:17.

Special Constable Scott Bennett died a year ago on the A46 at Dunholme

:00:18.:00:20.

and his mother says she's still waiting for the authorities to do

:00:21.:00:24.

something about the large number of crashes in the area. Amanda White

:00:25.:00:27.

reports. Scott Bennett was working towards a

:00:28.:00:31.

career in the police when his car collided with a lorry on the A46

:00:32.:00:36.

near Welton just over a year ago. He walked out of the door that morning

:00:37.:00:44.

to go to his police training. He basically never walked back in it

:00:45.:00:47.

again. You know, the devastation this road accident has caused has

:00:48.:00:54.

just been absolutely phenomenal. ?? WHITE The tragedy was no surprise to

:00:55.:00:57.

Graham Williamson, who has counted 400 accidents in his ten years at

:00:58.:01:01.

the garage on the junction. All you hear is metal. It's frightening.

:01:02.:01:04.

Seriously, something needs to be done, not later, something now. It

:01:05.:01:11.

needs to be dealt with. There needs to be some sort of calming system. I

:01:12.:01:15.

don't know. I don't know what to say, roundabout, traffic lights,

:01:16.:01:18.

whatever. It needs to stop because people... There's going to be more

:01:19.:01:21.

fatalities. One of the problems with this junction is once vehicles come

:01:22.:01:25.

over the brow of this hill they are often travelling at speed and

:01:26.:01:28.

downhill and it makes it very difficult to react to what's

:01:29.:01:31.

happening at the junction. This is probably one of the worst junctions

:01:32.:01:35.

we have in the county. We have vehicle activated signs, telling

:01:36.:01:49.

people to slow down. Little or no notice is taken of those. We do need

:01:50.:01:53.

something extra at this junction and we are looking at ideas for that.

:01:54.:01:57.

Will the measures be enough for Scott's family? It is about time

:01:58.:02:07.

somebody did something about it. You need to stand up and listen to the

:02:08.:02:12.

people, to the residents of the area and actually do something about it.

:02:13.:02:15.

How many more deaths do we have to have before somebody takes this on

:02:16.:02:19.

board and actually thinks, yeah, we have got problem here? For now,

:02:20.:02:22.

though, the safety of motorists here is very much in their own hands.

:02:23.:02:25.

Five people have been arrested as part of a murder investigation in

:02:26.:02:30.

Hull. A man, who's believed to be in his thirties, was found with serious

:02:31.:02:33.

injuries near the City Centre at just after six o'clock this morning

:02:34.:02:36.

and died in hospital. Four men and a woman are being questioned as part

:02:37.:02:40.

of the investigation into the man's death.

:02:41.:02:43.

It's been a mixed afternoon for our local football sides. In the Premier

:02:44.:02:46.

League, Hull City lost by two goals to nil away against Liverpool.

:02:47.:02:51.

Scunthorpe United are two points clear at the top of League Two after

:02:52.:02:54.

they beat Rochdale 3`0 at Glanford Park. And in the Conference Grimsby

:02:55.:02:58.

Town and Lincoln City drew a bad tempered game 1`1. Both sides had a

:02:59.:03:01.

player sent off. Dozens of people braved the wind and

:03:02.:03:04.

rain today today for the annual charity swim in the sea off Hornsea

:03:05.:03:08.

in East Yorkshire. Hundreds also lined the shore to support them and

:03:09.:03:11.

raise money for the local Inshore Rescue lifeboat team. Sarah Walton

:03:12.:03:17.

reports. It was a Scottish piper that lead

:03:18.:03:25.

swimmers to the sea this afternoon. Fitting for weather conditions more

:03:26.:03:28.

suited to the highlands. Not that anyone seemed to mind.

:03:29.:03:33.

Several hundred people turned up to support the dippers, but it wasn't

:03:34.:03:36.

long before the wind and rain forced even the hardiest to retreat to the

:03:37.:03:39.

lifeboat station for warmth. Good bit of fun on New Year's Day!

:03:40.:03:43.

Get rid of a hangover. WITH AUSTRALIAN ACCENT: Freezing. A bit

:03:44.:03:47.

different to Australia! I couldn't stand it. I went straight in and

:03:48.:03:52.

then came straight out. It's a vital part of the community, is the

:03:53.:03:55.

lifeboat, and for us all to do something like this, it's our chance

:03:56.:03:59.

to put something back as well. And that effort is greatly appreciated.

:04:00.:04:01.

We generally raise over ?1,000, which is awesome, so we're hoping

:04:02.:04:04.

we've done the same today. Everyone's been putting their hands

:04:05.:04:08.

in their pockets. I think even more so with the weather conditions being

:04:09.:04:11.

so bad! It's so cold. But after a quick change and a cup of tea, most

:04:12.:04:16.

said they will be back again next year.

:04:17.:04:20.

Time for a look at the weather with Jennifer Bartram. Hello. Good

:04:21.:04:26.

evening. January has got off to a fairly soggy start and we still have

:04:27.:04:30.

a fair few showers to get through as we go through the night. Some of

:04:31.:04:33.

these showers will be on the heavy side, perhaps producing a touch of

:04:34.:04:37.

hail in places, but they will start to dissipate into the early hours of

:04:38.:04:40.

tomorrow morning. Temperatures overnight getting down to around

:04:41.:04:43.

five or six and staying fairly breezy. Dry to start with tomorrow

:04:44.:04:46.

morning. We will see some good spells of sunshine and a

:04:47.:04:49.

decent`looking day all in all. Temperatures tomorrow getting up to

:04:50.:04:50.

a high or around seven or That's all for the moment. I'm back

:04:51.:04:54.

with the late news at 22.40. Hello. It is a New Year but it is

:04:55.:05:20.

the same old weather. Flood warnings are on the rise. The flood line

:05:21.:05:27.

number is on screen if you are at all concerned. Still some rain to

:05:28.:05:33.
