Campaigners say prices are rising three times faster than wages. That

:00:00.:00:00.

is all from BBC News at Six. It is goodbye from me and we can

:00:00.:00:00.

Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North. The headlines tonight:

:00:00.:00:12.

Watching the detectives ` the new body cameras helping police in the

:00:13.:00:20.

fight against crime. Officers are telling me there are no downsides

:00:21.:00:26.

and that is their word. There is an accurate capture of evidence.

:00:27.:00:30.

There are flood alerts in place as high tides hit the east coast.

:00:31.:00:37.

The tide will be at its highest on the banks of the Humber in 20

:00:38.:00:39.

minutes. The Hull City Haircut that's raised

:00:40.:00:42.

thousands for charity following a wait of more than two years. The

:00:43.:00:45.

Royal selfie that came as a Christmas present for a 12`year`old

:00:46.:00:48.

from Boston. There's more wet weather on the way,

:00:49.:00:51.

but what are the next few days looking like? Join me shortly.

:00:52.:01:05.

The trial of new body cameras by Lincolnshire Police has been

:01:06.:01:10.

criticised by campaigners for civil liberties. 19 devices are being worn

:01:11.:01:13.

by officers in the region which record evidence. It's hoped they'll

:01:14.:01:17.

cut down paperwork and speed up the justice system. But "Big Brother

:01:18.:01:23.

Watch" says it could be a threat to people's privacy. I'll be speaking

:01:24.:01:29.

to them in a few moments, but first, this report from Philip Norton.

:01:30.:01:37.

Caught in the act, a crime in progress. What have you got a pure C

:01:38.:01:46.

leave? While this is a police

:01:47.:01:48.

reconstruction, it shows what the body cameras now being used by

:01:49.:01:51.

officers in Lincolnshire are capable of recording. It offers them

:01:52.:02:04.

protection and it is an accurate capture of evidence. The cameras are

:02:05.:02:07.

said to provide much better evidence than the traditional notepad and

:02:08.:02:10.

pen. In turn, this brings faster convictions as defendants realise

:02:11.:02:16.

the weight of the case against them. We know the technology has

:02:17.:02:21.

accelerated and it is an opportunity to give a better service to the

:02:22.:02:25.

public, capture stronger evidence and reduce the number of complaints

:02:26.:02:30.

and issues with the police. Some senior officers suggest that some

:02:31.:02:36.

scandals could have been avoided if police officers had been equipped

:02:37.:02:40.

with cameras. Body`worn video cameras were first used in Britain

:02:41.:02:43.

by Devon and Cornwall Police in 2006. Strathclyde and Grampian

:02:44.:02:45.

Police have also piloted the equipment in Scotland. In 2011, the

:02:46.:02:49.

force concluded its use may have reduced crime and assaults on

:02:50.:02:52.

officers as well as reassuring the public. Last year saw Staffordshire

:02:53.:02:57.

Police start issuing cameras to more than 1,000 front line officers at a

:02:58.:03:00.

cost of ?350,000 ` the largest investment by any police force in

:03:01.:03:05.

Europe. The cameras themselves will be switched on by the officer, but

:03:06.:03:09.

there are strict rules on the use of the footage. If it's a minor

:03:10.:03:14.

incident or not used for a prosecution, it will be destroyed.

:03:15.:03:18.

But the move to using this type of recording has raised concerns over

:03:19.:03:22.

privacy. But the government says it's a natural progression. Just

:03:23.:03:31.

going out and talking to officers on the beat and talking to people

:03:32.:03:36.

elsewhere in the criminal justice system, people who want evidence to

:03:37.:03:40.

conveying `` get convictions in court, are very much in favour on

:03:41.:03:45.

this. Just like people have become used to CCTV, so I think people will

:03:46.:03:52.

become used to body worn videos on police officers as well. It has cost

:03:53.:04:03.

the police and council in Lincolnshire ?2500 to rent the

:04:04.:04:06.

cameras but if they are cost effective they could be rolled out

:04:07.:04:10.

across the county. The Policing Minister, Damien Green,

:04:11.:04:13.

says it's time for technology to play its part. It's cost the police

:04:14.:04:16.

and council in Lincolnshire ?2,500 to rent the cameras, but if the time

:04:17.:04:19.

savings mean they are cost effective, they could be rolled out

:04:20.:04:23.

across the county. I'm joined by Nick Pickles who's from Big Brother

:04:24.:04:31.

Watch. Presumably, you welcome the body cameras? I think this

:04:32.:04:35.

technology should be used with a basic principle that nobody is ever

:04:36.:04:39.

filmed talking to a police officer without being aware of it. They

:04:40.:04:45.

should not be a secret recording. It can improve accountability of

:04:46.:04:48.

officers and reassure members of the public about the dealings they have

:04:49.:04:52.

with the police. If police have got nothing to hide then they have

:04:53.:04:57.

nothing to worry about? If you talk to a police officer in the street,

:04:58.:05:01.

it is an evidential process and they can write that down. Mike concern is

:05:02.:05:08.

where certain situations, let us say an officer talking to someone about

:05:09.:05:14.

a bereavement, certain situations will not be appropriate.

:05:15.:05:17.

Particularly if you are recording the audio as well as video. There is

:05:18.:05:22.

also the question as to whether officers can access the memory

:05:23.:05:25.

themselves and tamper with footage. If you get those concerns right and

:05:26.:05:30.

it is used in targeted situations, you can improve accountability of

:05:31.:05:34.

the police and help members of the public help them know that they are

:05:35.:05:37.

sure things are being recorded properly. The policing minister says

:05:38.:05:44.

it will help speed up prosecutions and convictions saving the police

:05:45.:05:49.

and court time and money. At is that a good thing? I am wary of trying to

:05:50.:05:53.

say we should have more surveillance because it should save `` may save

:05:54.:06:00.

paperwork. With CCTV, for example, the promised reductions in crime and

:06:01.:06:04.

convictions have not materialised in anywhere near the order of magnitude

:06:05.:06:09.

promised. Let us stick to first principles and make sure the

:06:10.:06:13.

surveillance that goes on happens with everyone's knowledge and

:06:14.:06:17.

consent and it isn't a way of police officers secretly recording people

:06:18.:06:19.

in the street. Good to talk to you. We would like

:06:20.:06:25.

to hear your thoughts. Are you comfortable with the idea you may be

:06:26.:06:28.

filmed whilst talking to a police officer? Your thoughts on this one,

:06:29.:06:37.

the subject of police body cameras being trialled in Lincolnshire.

:06:38.:07:03.

In a moment: A brick attack on a coach in Liverpool Leeds supporters

:07:04.:07:13.

terrified. Blocks of concrete and boulders and everything.

:07:14.:07:15.

Unbelievable! The Environment Agency says it is

:07:16.:07:18.

monitoring exceptionally high tides due along the east coast over the

:07:19.:07:21.

next two days following the massive tidal surge which caused widespread

:07:22.:07:25.

damage on the east coast four weeks ago. More than 1,000 homes were

:07:26.:07:28.

flooded across east Yorkshire and Lincolnshire because of the surge,

:07:29.:07:31.

which was described as the worst in 60 years. Although conditions are

:07:32.:07:35.

not expected to be as severe this time around, the public is being

:07:36.:07:39.

warned to be alert. Emma Massey is by the Humber tonight. How serious

:07:40.:07:50.

is the threat of flooding there? Well, it was high tide in Skegness

:07:51.:08:01.

ten minutes ago. This area was badly flooded about a month ago because of

:08:02.:08:06.

the tidal surge combined with a high tide and strong winds. We're not

:08:07.:08:16.

expecting that tonight, of course, but the water levels are very high

:08:17.:08:20.

and take a look at this. These were the scenes in Bridlington last night

:08:21.:08:23.

when high winds along with a high tide caused the sea to batter the

:08:24.:08:27.

sea wall and its defences. The coastguard was on hand to ensure

:08:28.:08:29.

pedestrians avoided the seafront. And rescue services are asking

:08:30.:08:32.

people around East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire to exercise caution

:08:33.:08:38.

tonight. The warnings come from the Environment Agency and the weather

:08:39.:08:43.

people. Our main concern tonight is people keep away from the edge. It

:08:44.:08:50.

is dark here. So, they have to keep away from the edge. Last night it

:08:51.:08:54.

was splashing onto the road and tonight it could be higher so it

:08:55.:09:00.

will be more dangerous. Many of the defences have been shored up and

:09:01.:09:05.

rebuilt. There is confidence the repairs are more than sufficient to

:09:06.:09:10.

withstand the high tides. The Environment Agency says people

:09:11.:09:15.

should still be vigilant. People need to be aware. We still have a

:09:16.:09:22.

flood alert in plate `` in place generally around the area and that

:09:23.:09:26.

is to make people aware of the conditions and that people need to

:09:27.:09:31.

listen to the radio and TV and also go on to the Environment Agency

:09:32.:09:36.

website and hook up with the flood line. This flood warning is at the

:09:37.:09:43.

lowest level. This means flooding is possible and people should be

:09:44.:09:48.

prepared. The alerts are on the Humber estuary and the South bank

:09:49.:09:54.

and areas of the Wash. Also, the coast at Bridlington and the tidal

:09:55.:09:59.

part of the River Ouse. Tides are expected to be high again tomorrow

:10:00.:10:03.

but the Environment Agency says they are monitoring things closely.

:10:04.:10:07.

We will continue to follow that story over the next few days.

:10:08.:10:11.

A Lincolnshire care home has been fined ?140,000 and ordered to pay

:10:12.:10:14.

?65,000 costs after an elderly resident spent a night locked out in

:10:15.:10:19.

the freezing cold. Staff hadn't realised 84`year`old Dorothy Spicer

:10:20.:10:22.

was missing from the Whitefriars Care Home in Stamford. She died six

:10:23.:10:28.

weeks later. The Charitable trust, which runs the home, has today

:10:29.:10:31.

insisted that procedures have been tightened up. Our health

:10:32.:10:34.

correspondent, Vicky Johnson reports.

:10:35.:10:38.

Dorothy Spicer had been lively, loving and much loved according to

:10:39.:10:44.

her family. But Alzheimer's meant the 84`year`old needed

:10:45.:10:46.

round`the`clock care. Despite this, she'd been able to walk out of the

:10:47.:10:50.

Whitefriars Care Home in November 2009 without anyone realising. She

:10:51.:10:56.

was found the following morning lying outside. Today, her family

:10:57.:11:06.

gave their reaction. We found it concerning that they had gone to

:11:07.:11:10.

such lengths to prove that they were innocent. We feel it has been a

:11:11.:11:16.

total waste of time and money. We have had four years of heartache

:11:17.:11:20.

whilst we listened to their futile excuses to avoid admitting the

:11:21.:11:24.

truth. Lincoln Crown Court heard how there'd been a catalogue of

:11:25.:11:27.

failures, from poor staff handovers to inadequate checks on residents,

:11:28.:11:36.

and problems with door alarms. The judge said there had been corporate,

:11:37.:11:42.

sister `` systemic and procedural failings and that the fine imposed

:11:43.:11:48.

in no way calculated the value of Mrs Spicer 's life. Today's case was

:11:49.:11:51.

brought by South Kesteven District Council. It sends out a message to

:11:52.:11:59.

care homes that you must put safety of your residence absolutely at the

:12:00.:12:06.

top of your list. It is so important. Careless practices can

:12:07.:12:10.

lead to unfortunate events. The chief executive of the trust, which

:12:11.:12:13.

runs Whitefriars and around 70 other care homes across the country,

:12:14.:12:16.

insisted improvements had already been made. People like me do

:12:17.:12:26.

unannounced checks, turn up at two in the morning and make sure

:12:27.:12:30.

procedures are being observed. We have built more checks and balances

:12:31.:12:35.

and supervision and more management into the system. This hadn't been an

:12:36.:12:38.

isolated incident, the court was told. Management had failed to heed

:12:39.:12:42.

warnings from their own staff just a month before. The home has recently

:12:43.:12:45.

been inspected by the CQC, the health watchdog, and is now meeting

:12:46.:12:46.

all standards required. Police believe a man who died in

:12:47.:12:57.

Hull on New Year's Day may have been the victim of a sustained violent

:12:58.:13:01.

assault. The man, in his 30s, was found lying in this street off

:13:02.:13:05.

Beverley Road at six in the morning. Four men and a woman who were being

:13:06.:13:08.

questioned as part of the murder inquiry were released on bail this

:13:09.:13:19.

afternoon. They have released CCTV footage of Stephen Herbert before he

:13:20.:13:23.

was attacked. We really need to talk to the people on the DVD to come

:13:24.:13:30.

forward and talk to us. People need to tell us what they saw because it

:13:31.:13:37.

is really important to his family. For men and women being questioned

:13:38.:13:40.

as part of that enquiry were released bail today.

:13:41.:13:43.

Traffic on one of the main routes into Hull has returned to normal

:13:44.:13:47.

after a two`week closure. Spring Bank West was shut so this new

:13:48.:13:51.

railway bridge could be installed. The bridge carries the line to the

:13:52.:13:52.

docks in east Hull. A man is being treated for back

:13:53.:14:07.

injuries after a bus carrying Hull City fans was set upon by a gang of

:14:08.:14:14.

men throwing bricks. Repairing the damage to windows

:14:15.:14:18.

smashed on a day trip to football yesterday. Children were on this bus

:14:19.:14:23.

when it was set upon in Liverpool. Steve Simpson's 11 and 15`year`old

:14:24.:14:28.

son were amongst them. People were talking about the game and listening

:14:29.:14:32.

to music. We looked out of the windows and their war `` there were

:14:33.:14:37.

15 or 20 youths with hoods up throwing bricks at `` bricks and

:14:38.:14:44.

rocks at the bus. It would cost ?4500 to repair the damage but

:14:45.:14:50.

people were hurt also, with one man needing hospital treatment after

:14:51.:14:56.

being hit by a lump of concrete. As for guys got off the bus they were

:14:57.:15:03.

attacked ` kicked and punched and got knives pulled out on them. It is

:15:04.:15:09.

awful. We had gone to a game of football. The bus limped to a pub

:15:10.:15:13.

but when fans felt threatened again, the driver made the decision to

:15:14.:15:18.

leave the area despite the broken windows. No doubt he was frightened

:15:19.:15:24.

as well so he made the decision to move them on to the first motorway

:15:25.:15:29.

services area which was a bit nearer for our coach to collect them from

:15:30.:15:34.

when it came from Hull. Merseyside Police has confirmed it is

:15:35.:15:38.

investigating a report of Chris `` criminal damage to a bus here on

:15:39.:15:43.

Townsend Avenue last night. They are trying to trace those responsible

:15:44.:15:48.

but do not know if they had been to the football match earlier in the

:15:49.:15:53.

day. The assumption was that hooligans associated with Liverpool

:15:54.:15:56.

Football Club were associated with this. I have spoken to a fan today

:15:57.:16:06.

who is convinced a whole fan provoked this. But so much more

:16:07.:16:10.

could have been damaged here than just a few broken windows.

:16:11.:16:19.

Still ahead: Scrambling for pennies. The east Yorkshire children

:16:20.:16:26.

upholding a New Year tradition. A royal portrait with a difference as

:16:27.:16:30.

Prince William shows he is king of the selfies.

:16:31.:16:48.

Another picture tomorrow. We are back to normal, all as normal as we

:16:49.:17:01.

ever are here! Liz says, I think Paul needs to look at Alex Deakins

:17:02.:17:07.

dressed sense. The bank manager look is sexy, she says.

:17:08.:17:13.

Is that another word to describe dull?

:17:14.:17:20.

Have you been Christmas shopping, Peter? Right, let's have the

:17:21.:17:22.

forecast. Wet and windy. Surprisingly enough,

:17:23.:17:36.

it has been a dry month in December across our part of the region with

:17:37.:17:42.

less than 50% of normal rainfall. That came as something of a

:17:43.:17:48.

surprise. But there is some rain to come tonight. Today has been

:17:49.:17:54.

beautiful, hasn't it? But here comes the next weather system piling in

:17:55.:17:57.

from the South West. The wind will pick up and we will see outbreaks of

:17:58.:18:03.

rains Reading north`eastwards. It is a fragmented band of rain and we'll

:18:04.:18:09.

move fairly quickly. The wind will strengthen in the early hours

:18:10.:18:16.

perhaps to gale force on the hills. The sun will rise in the morning at

:18:17.:18:20.

around 8:20am. A bright and windy day with plenty

:18:21.:18:33.

of sunshine. One or two sharp showers blowing in but they will be

:18:34.:18:38.

fleeting. Some places will stay entirely dry but it will be very

:18:39.:18:45.

windy and deed. The wind may touch gale force in some parts. Showers

:18:46.:18:53.

locally heavy and prolonged on Saturday and then it turns wet and

:18:54.:19:01.

windy through Sunday. My fingernails grew over Christmas.

:19:02.:19:08.

I wonder why that was! We will see you tomorrow. Oh, maybe not!

:19:09.:19:18.

One of the most famous hairstyles in Premier league football was cut

:19:19.:19:22.

short in its prime today. Tom Huddlestone had not cut his hair is

:19:23.:19:26.

since scoring his last goal nearly three years ago and he has raised

:19:27.:19:33.

nearly `` thousands of pounds in the process. Today's visit to the barber

:19:34.:19:38.

was prompted by his first goal recently.

:19:39.:19:41.

He took his place in the barber 's chair watched by his girlfriend and

:19:42.:19:46.

a frenzied media. Tom Huddlestone promised not to cut his hair until

:19:47.:19:50.

he scored. He had waited nearly three years for this, his first for

:19:51.:19:57.

the Tigers. At the site `` salon, the hairdresser got to work. The

:19:58.:20:06.

dressing room has never seen anything like this. You raised

:20:07.:20:12.

nearly ?12,500 towards cancer research but that stands at nearly

:20:13.:20:17.

?40,000. On his way to the target of ?75,000. Lance took pride in his

:20:18.:20:28.

work with an audience like this. When it happened and he scored, I

:20:29.:20:35.

got the call and I was honoured. I jumped on the train and came down.

:20:36.:20:39.

Then, with more styling, after nearly two hours of work, the

:20:40.:20:47.

haircut was no more. My family would have left it as it was. They became

:20:48.:20:53.

quite attached to it. I know I had to take a fair bit off. Thankfully

:20:54.:20:59.

it has turned out not too bad. On the pitch, Steve Bruce had no

:21:00.:21:03.

complaints after a 2`0 victory to Liverpool. The second goal was this

:21:04.:21:12.

free kick. City had kept him quite a month ago but not this day. There

:21:13.:21:18.

were a lot of tired bodies from the third game in six days. They stuck

:21:19.:21:23.

at it but we needed to have more freshness and energy if we were

:21:24.:21:26.

going to take anything from Liverpool today. They had to

:21:27.:21:29.

Middlesbrough in the third round of the FA Cup but this streamlined Tom

:21:30.:21:37.

Huddlestone is ready for selection. Scrambling has taken `` has taken

:21:38.:21:47.

place today. Sweets and money have been thrown into the streets for

:21:48.:22:03.

local children to pick up. It is a centuries`old tradition

:22:04.:22:08.

still going strong. For over 250 years children have chanted the

:22:09.:22:14.

Rhine at businesses doorways and in return they get plenty of sweets

:22:15.:22:20.

and, if lucky, sweets. It is quite easy because you just have to look

:22:21.:22:24.

on the ground for a penny sweets and grab it. I have got toothpaste from

:22:25.:22:32.

the dentist and lots of coins. What will you do with all those sweets?

:22:33.:22:37.

Share them with my brothers and sisters. It is fun because you get

:22:38.:22:42.

free sweets and money. Will you be able to eat them all? Mum will let

:22:43.:22:50.

us. In the crowd today where parents passing on the tradition to their

:22:51.:22:54.

children and reminiscing on the times when they used to do this.

:22:55.:22:59.

Very wet and sat in the snow, getting your fingers trampled on and

:23:00.:23:04.

hot coins. I used to have a zip that could goal so I could get my money

:23:05.:23:09.

in the front. There were 150 kids or more. They lined us up and gave us a

:23:10.:23:18.

packet of crisps and what else? A bottle of lemonade. We were a bit

:23:19.:23:22.

shifty some of us. We used to go back to the end of the queue. Over

:23:23.:23:28.

30 businesses took part this year. The local dentist did not hand out

:23:29.:23:32.

sweets. They gave toothpaste instead!

:23:33.:23:40.

Lead as a good evening to the children there and Kathleen, the

:23:41.:23:45.

star of the night. At 12 years old, a girl from Boston has taken the

at once. Prince Edward and Prince William

were first out. For Madison and hammam, Christmas

day started with some royalties spotting at Sandringham. We got

there early so we get front row seats and we watched them walk to

church. This was the last time Madison would be able to hold

:24:24.:24:27.

flowers to give to the Royals before she would be too old, but she was

:24:28.:24:31.

not just arms with flowers. She had her man's phone and was encouraged

:24:32.:24:38.

to use it. My man dared me to ask the Queen to have a selfie with me.

:24:39.:24:46.

I said, see if you can get a selfie. Not thinking she would for

:24:47.:24:50.

one minute. Because the Queen was the other side... I had to ask

:24:51.:24:56.

William. I didn't think I would do it but in the end I did. Within a

few seconds, her mother 's phone and the story is told of meeting the

:25:03.:25:08.

Royal family became national news. Within William came to me, I gave

him flowers and asked him for a selfie. He said, sure. I couldn't

believe it. It was surreal. She was so excited she could hardly spit her

word that. Since sending the picture into the local newspaper is then

made it into seven of the nationals. 2013 was a big year for the selfie,

:25:34.:25:38.

which has become a widely recognised term. What will 2014 bring and how

:25:39.:25:44.

do you top a selfie with Prince William? There are those, of course,

:25:45.:25:48.

who think that the Royals should not be doing it at all. If you are a

:25:49.:25:56.

member of the Royal family and that person turns out to be an unsavoury

:25:57.:26:00.

character or something like that, it doesn't look particularly good for

:26:01.:26:04.

the Royal family. It is not something I wouldn't necessarily say

:26:05.:26:08.

is a good thing to do all the time. For me, I wanted a selfie with the

:26:09.:26:13.

girl who was brave enough to ask. Madison will have to now think of

:26:14.:26:21.

her next target. A few days ago, she got Williams and

:26:22.:26:27.

today she got Simon! The main headlines this Thursday

Lincolnshire Police say the use of body cameras is helping them in

:26:37.:26:39.

their fight against crime but concerns have been raised about

:26:40.:26:42.

privacy. Tamara, windy with occasional

:26:43.:26:46.

showers although quite a few areas will stay dry.

:26:47.:26:53.

The response on the subject of cameras on the bodies of the police.

:26:54.:27:01.

Paul says, if you have not done anything wrong how can an effective

:27:02.:27:10.

tool be an invasion of privacy? Amelia says, if you are doing

:27:11.:27:13.

nothing wrong what have you got to be concerned about? Another says

:27:14.:27:19.

they provide excellent recorded back`up protecting the public and

:27:20.:27:25.

officers alike. Another says, it is not body cameras people want to see

:27:26.:27:29.

but police officers. It is difficult to find any on the streets these

:27:30.:27:34.

days. Another, I expect people will not complain about the cameras if it

:27:35.:27:39.

helps them. Invasion of privacy? People need to get a grip.

:27:40.:27:45.

Join us tomorrow. Thank you for watching and have a nice evening.
