from the Atlantic. Thank you very much. That's it from us. On BBC One

:00:00.:00:00.

we can now so it's goodbye from me, and on BBC

:00:00.:00:00.

One, Good evening and welcome to BBC Look

:00:00.:00:13.

North. The headlines tonight. Spiralling running costs put the

:00:14.:00:16.

future of privately run care homes at risk. There is a chronic

:00:17.:00:30.

underfunding of care nationally. An inquest into the death of a Red

:00:31.:00:33.

Arrows pilot hears claims of a shocking lack of engineering

:00:34.:00:36.

resources at the aerobatics team. Campaigners say Government plans to

:00:37.:00:39.

improve post offices will actually mean a poorer service for local

:00:40.:00:42.

people. If it wasn't for the post office here, I don't know what we

:00:43.:00:48.

would do. Why work from Matisse, Dali, Picasso and Warhol have gone

:00:49.:00:57.

on display at a Lincoln art gallery. Don't forget to join me for the

:00:58.:00:58.

weather forecast. Red tape and rising costs are

:00:59.:01:12.

forcing care homes for vulnerable elderly people out of business,

:01:13.:01:15.

that's according to the owner of one home in Lincolnshire. Now residents

:01:16.:01:20.

living at the Red House in Stamford face having to move out and their

:01:21.:01:23.

families are worried about what that will mean for their care in the

:01:24.:01:27.

future. They claim there's a shortage of residential places in

:01:28.:01:31.

south Lincolnshire. Tonight the organisation that represents care

:01:32.:01:34.

homes says it's a story that's being repeated across the country. Sarah

:01:35.:01:43.

Corker has this report. The cost of providing 24`hour

:01:44.:01:46.

elderly care has proved too much for this Stamford Care Home. Audrey

:01:47.:01:52.

Smart moved here after a stroke four years ago ` and is visited daily by

:01:53.:02:01.

her daughter. We know they are safe, well cared for and we don't have to

:02:02.:02:08.

worry. You have to keep fighting, because she has nobody to speak for

:02:09.:02:12.

her. Upsetting news for the 21 residents here, who must leave by

:02:13.:02:16.

the end of the month. Spiralling staffing costs, red tape and a lack

:02:17.:02:19.

of funding are to blame the owner told me. There is a chronic

:02:20.:02:33.

underfunding nationally. Only five residents are funded by the council,

:02:34.:02:38.

so is this a case of your management by you? No, because we have been

:02:39.:02:46.

doing this for years. At Red House it costs ?670 per resident per week

:02:47.:02:51.

for care. For those eligible the council pays ?436 per person ` plus

:02:52.:02:54.

?109 for those needing nursing care. A total of ?545, a ?125 short fall.

:02:55.:03:05.

Britain's ageing population is putting increasing demand on nursing

:03:06.:03:10.

home places and on the NHS, and there are concerns financial

:03:11.:03:14.

pressures in many are now struggling to cover the cost of care.

:03:15.:03:18.

Lincolnshire County Council says it has recently increased the amount it

:03:19.:03:22.

pays for care ` funding which helps Frank Green and his wife Vera. He

:03:23.:03:26.

makes the short drive to see her here every day. We have been

:03:27.:03:35.

together now 70 years. It is the problem travelling. There are no

:03:36.:03:42.

spaces in this area, which means mum will call from a former five hour

:03:43.:03:49.

visit every day by dad to one or two are visit each week. Estimates

:03:50.:04:01.

suggest 1500 cares homes are at risk of going bust. The owner here warns

:04:02.:04:05.

small care homes, offering one to one care could become a thing of the

:04:06.:04:08.

past if costs continue to rise. I'm joined now by Nadra Ahmed who is

:04:09.:04:12.

from the National Care Association who represents care homes across the

:04:13.:04:15.

country. Are you hearing a similar story from members of your

:04:16.:04:18.

organisation that they are having to close? I think we are beginning to

:04:19.:04:21.

hear much more of that, because we are beginning to hear that people

:04:22.:04:26.

are no longer to sit able to sustain that shortfall. That is the worry,

:04:27.:04:32.

the shortfalls that add up. When you're trying provide a quality

:04:33.:04:37.

service and you are hampered by the fact you're not getting appropriate

:04:38.:04:40.

funding, delivered as commissioning it, then you are in that no win

:04:41.:04:46.

situation, because bureaucracy has been pieced, all the other costs are

:04:47.:04:51.

increasing, but for the last few years, a lot of the commissioners

:04:52.:04:58.

are giving seasonal increases. Some care homes have had a bad press

:04:59.:05:03.

recently, so you must welcome the checks. I welcome checks, because

:05:04.:05:12.

one bad case actually white site all the hundreds of thousands of care

:05:13.:05:18.

workers who are doing excellent jobs, an example is this home where

:05:19.:05:27.

people are so happy. One of them spoils the whole bunch, because

:05:28.:05:31.

that's what people will focus on. Yes, we should have stringent

:05:32.:05:38.

regulations and they should be properly implemented, but it is

:05:39.:05:41.

about people coming into the services and looking at what is

:05:42.:05:46.

going on, not about paperwork. The paperwork takes people away from the

:05:47.:05:51.

job they actually started out to do, which is to care for individuals.

:05:52.:06:04.

They are expensive now, we'll we see less and less of them? I hope not,

:06:05.:06:13.

because I hope people will see that as a future in this market. I hope

:06:14.:06:20.

not, I hope people will look at it and invest in this industry, because

:06:21.:06:25.

it is a great industries to be in. Thank you very much. We want to hear

:06:26.:06:34.

from you on this story ` do you think more money should be made

:06:35.:06:37.

available to help care for the elderly?

:06:38.:06:55.

It is a very emotive issue. We look forward to hearing from you. In a

:06:56.:07:05.

moment. We speak to a man who tells us he lost almost ?1,000 in 20

:07:06.:07:08.

minutes on a high stakes gambling machine.

:07:09.:07:16.

An inquest into the death of a Red Arrows pilot has been hearing how

:07:17.:07:19.

the aerobatics team had a shortage of experienced engineers. Flight

:07:20.:07:22.

lieutenant Sean Cunningham died when his ejector seat activated while his

:07:23.:07:25.

plane was on the ground at RAF Scampton in November 2011. The

:07:26.:07:31.

inquest at Lincoln Coroners Court has today been hearing from the

:07:32.:07:35.

ground crew ` those whose job it was to carry out the final safety checks

:07:36.:07:39.

on the jets. Caroline Bilton was there and joins me from our Lincoln

:07:40.:07:42.

studio. What has been said today about staffing levels at RAF

:07:43.:07:46.

Scampton? The inquest this morning heard today

:07:47.:07:49.

from squadron leader Martin Higgins ` the man in charge of safety. He

:07:50.:07:53.

had returned to work with the team in the summer of 2011 after being

:07:54.:07:55.

away for four years. He commented on the dilution of

:07:56.:08:20.

experience. In fact we heard a number of times throughout the day

:08:21.:08:23.

of how young the engineers were and that a number of them working on the

:08:24.:08:27.

hawk jets were fresh out of training school. Later this afternoon an

:08:28.:08:30.

interview conducted at the time of the incident with Flt Sgt Cox ` a

:08:31.:08:34.

senior maintenance engineer was read out.

:08:35.:08:44.

We've heard from the team who carried out the final checks on

:08:45.:08:49.

Sean's plane on the morning of the incident and nothing untoward was

:08:50.:08:53.

seen. Sean even gave the thumbs up to the team just moments before his

:08:54.:08:59.

ejector seat went off. One Corporal Lyndon Picken described how he was

:09:00.:09:03.

just two feet away when it did. He said he felt the blast and the heat

:09:04.:09:07.

then he was blown off his feet. The inquest continues. It is expected to

:09:08.:09:14.

last up to three weeks. Campaigners in a number of East

:09:15.:09:17.

Yorkshire villages are unhappy at plans to change their post office.

:09:18.:09:20.

The government wants post offices to open longer hours ` which could see

:09:21.:09:24.

them move into local convenience stores. But some Sub Post Masters

:09:25.:09:27.

and Mistresses say it will lead to reduced services. Our Rural Afffairs

:09:28.:09:39.

Correspondent Linsey Smith has more. For centuries, the Post Office has

:09:40.:09:43.

been at the heart of many villages. And over the years, plans to close

:09:44.:09:49.

them have prompted protests. But once again, the Post Office as we

:09:50.:09:53.

know it, is about to change. That's a worry for Helen Watson. Her family

:09:54.:09:58.

has run the branch in South Cave for 36 years. You just feel as though

:09:59.:10:07.

you have worked hard to try and build it up and then they are taking

:10:08.:10:15.

it away from us. Under these modernisation plans, the Post Office

:10:16.:10:18.

hope to move almost 5,000 branches into local convenience stores. That

:10:19.:10:21.

would mean longer opening hours, but the possibility of a cut in the

:10:22.:10:27.

services being offered. We run an Internet business, and if it wasn't

:10:28.:10:31.

for the post office here I don't know what we would do. It is an

:10:32.:10:40.

asset to the village and we should not lose it. We must keep it. If the

:10:41.:10:46.

South Cave Post Office was relocated to a convenience store, residents

:10:47.:10:50.

could have to travel eight miles to Hessle to collect undelivered

:10:51.:10:52.

parcels. And for some services, possibly nine miles to Cottingham.

:10:53.:11:00.

They may have to travel here to post heavier parcels and you were

:11:01.:11:04.

complicated banking transactions. Things they can do here at the

:11:05.:11:08.

moment, but may not be possible when it is in the smallest space. The

:11:09.:11:12.

change has already happened in North Cave ` and it looks like this. The

:11:13.:11:16.

Post Office told us this is the largest investment programme in its

:11:17.:11:19.

history, and they are committed to maintaining services. This

:11:20.:11:27.

government is committed to keeping our post offices by modernising it.

:11:28.:11:32.

We will not be closing any post offices. Many want to keep their

:11:33.:11:44.

post office just as intense. They hope petitions will help. But these

:11:45.:11:47.

new plans contain no room for nostalgia. Linsey Smith, BBC Look

:11:48.:11:50.

North. You might have view on this story as

:11:51.:11:54.

well, is it better to have more post office services in places like

:11:55.:11:57.

convenience stores or should the traditional post office be

:11:58.:12:08.

protected? A man who made bombs in his shed in

:12:09.:12:12.

East Hull has been sent back to jail for ignoring an ASBO which banned

:12:13.:12:16.

him from his hobby. Paul Smith's interest in explosives came to the

:12:17.:12:19.

attention of police when neighbours on this street got sick of the loud

:12:20.:12:23.

bangs. He was jailed in 2012 after devices ` including a pipe bomb, a

:12:24.:12:26.

rocket launcher and sophisticated trigger systems ` were found in a

:12:27.:12:29.

shed at his parents' home. Today, a judge at Hull Crown Court jailed

:12:30.:12:35.

Paul Smith for 20 months. Council tax in North East

:12:36.:12:38.

Lincolnshire could rise for the first time in four years, and the

:12:39.:12:42.

council may cut more than two hundred jobs as it tries to cut

:12:43.:12:45.

spending. Councillors are looking at raising the tax on households by

:12:46.:12:48.

almost two`per`cent every year for the next three years. A final

:12:49.:12:51.

decision will be made later this month.

:12:52.:12:53.

She'd worked in local politics for three decades and Sheila Waudby was

:12:54.:12:57.

was about the realise her dream of becoming Hull's Lord Mayor when she

:12:58.:13:00.

died on Christmas Eve. Today all three of the city's Labour MPs

:13:01.:13:03.

turned out to pay their respects at her funeral. Colleagues described

:13:04.:13:07.

Sheila, a former school dinner lady, as a "formidable woman who did a

:13:08.:13:11.

magnificent job for the people of Hull". Phillip Norton reports.

:13:12.:13:25.

The city she regarded as her family stands still for Deputy Lord Mayor

:13:26.:13:30.

Sheila Waudby. Politicians and city leaders were among those paying

:13:31.:13:35.

their respects to the former dinner lady, who would have become Lord

:13:36.:13:42.

Mayor in a matter of months. It is a very sad occasion. Sheila was a

:13:43.:13:46.

formidable person and she cared passionately about fighting

:13:47.:13:49.

injustice and doing well for her community. The service paid tribute

:13:50.:13:57.

to her dedication to her work as well as her family. Captain John

:13:58.:14:03.

Watson described her as she was a staunch Labour supporter who had a

:14:04.:14:08.

great love for young people. The Eastfield MP said she had helped

:14:09.:14:12.

thousands of people over the years and was respected, even feared,

:14:13.:14:18.

across political divides. But it was perhaps her daughter who captured

:14:19.:14:23.

the congregation by saying that she regarded the city as her family.

:14:24.:14:27.

Thank you for the love and care you gave to mum, she said. I thought

:14:28.:14:33.

that was a lovely gesture, and its book from her experience of how much

:14:34.:14:42.

the city meant to Sheila. After dedicating almost three decades to

:14:43.:14:45.

local politics, it was a fitting farewell to ten one, described as a

:14:46.:14:50.

remarkable public servant and a phenomenal woman.

:14:51.:15:03.

The funeral of Sheila Waudby today. Still ahead tonight: Could this

:15:04.:15:12.

former Lincoln City player cause a cup upset when they face his present

:15:13.:15:16.

side North Ferriby United? The masterworks from some of the world's

:15:17.:15:19.

most famous artists that are going on display in Lincoln. Tonight's

forecast started in the UK and this is what we have perfected.

:15:46.:15:54.

Bert Ford would have turned in his grave.

:15:55.:16:20.

Tonight: Cloudy with patchy outbreaks of rain at first, becoming

:16:21.:16:23.

dry and clear later. Minimum temperature 1C with icy patches

:16:24.:16:28.

possible around dawn. Tomorrow: Fine and dry with a good deal of

:16:29.:16:38.

sunshine. Maximum temperature 6C. Moderate westerly wind. Sunday: Mist

:16:39.:16:42.

and fog lifting into low cloud. Chilly. There could be a ground

:16:43.:16:53.

frost in rural parts. The sun will rise in the morning at around

:16:54.:17:09.

8:15am. A lovely bright day. Long spells of sunshine, probably

:17:10.:17:12.

unbroken. Beautiful conditions along the coast with a moderate wind.

:17:13.:17:19.

Temperatures cluster Village for the middle of January. Seven degrees is

:17:20.:17:34.

possible. A widespread sharp frost to come for Saturday night. It may

:17:35.:17:43.

brighten up in places on Sunday afternoon. Monday looks set to fine

:17:44.:17:51.

after a wet night on Sunday. Choose state sees warm rain.

:17:52.:17:59.

`` more rain. On Wednesday's BBC Look North we

:18:00.:18:09.

were talking about high stakes betting machines and calls for

:18:10.:18:12.

restrictions to be placed on them. After the programme Steve Hendey

:18:13.:18:15.

from Hull got in touch about his past gambling problem. He lost

:18:16.:18:23.

nearly ?1,000 on a machine in just 20 minutes. He told Tolu Adeoye his

:18:24.:18:31.

story. I started when I was 22. Bad it happens when I was younger.

:18:32.:18:37.

Steve Hendey first went into a bookmakers three years ago to bet on

:18:38.:18:41.

a football match. It became a weekly ritual but he soon moved onto the

:18:42.:18:44.

gambling machines. It was the buzz of winning money. They go in with

:18:45.:18:50.

?20 and you come out with 120. We think you can do it all the time,

:18:51.:18:51.

but you can't. What was the point where you thought

:18:52.:19:04.

you didn't want to do it any more? The ?900 in 20 minutes, it made me

:19:05.:19:10.

feel physically sick. Do you take responsibility for the gambling?

:19:11.:19:15.

Yes, it was my choice. I was not strong enough to stop the till I

:19:16.:19:22.

realised it was a very low point. It's been a year since Steve used a

:19:23.:19:26.

machine. He says he's come forward to warn others about how quickly the

:19:27.:19:30.

addiction can escalate. You don't think you will get hooked, but you

:19:31.:19:37.

will. I am a lot stronger now. How have you managed to stop yourself?

:19:38.:19:41.

It was mainly that I was losing a lot of money and I was not happy, so

:19:42.:19:47.

I had to change my life. We had a very big response on that story.

:19:48.:19:56.

A former Lincoln City player is hoping to cause a cup upset and help

:19:57.:19:59.

his present side North Ferriby United into the quarter finals of

:20:00.:20:03.

the FA Trophy. Defender Danny Hone left the Imps two seasons ago and

:20:04.:20:06.

played for Gainsborough Trinity before moving to Conference North

:20:07.:20:08.

leaders Ferriby. Our sports reporter Simon Clark caught up with him.

:20:09.:20:18.

This is Danny Hone who once upon a time proudly wore the red and white

:20:19.:20:22.

stripes of Lincoln City. But this weekend he'll be back at Sincil Bank

:20:23.:20:26.

in Ferriby green and white. Ferriby play a division beneath Lincoln but

:20:27.:20:29.

as the leaders Danny and his team`mates are full of optimism. It

:20:30.:20:35.

is a big game for the club, but the lads and I just see it as another

:20:36.:20:40.

game we are right to win. There is no war pressure on us. It is no

:20:41.:20:44.

different from a normal game and we will go there full of confidence.

:20:45.:20:51.

The two clubs have very different histories. The Imps were formed in

:20:52.:20:55.

1884 ` 50 years before the East Yorkshire club. The Imps reached

:20:56.:20:58.

their highest league position of fifth in division two in 1902.

:20:59.:21:00.

Ferriby's long non`league heritage sees them achieveing their highest

:21:01.:21:04.

league placing this very week top of Conference North. There is a golf

:21:05.:21:15.

from our division to Lincoln, but hopefully we can bridge that. At

:21:16.:21:19.

Sincil Bank this vital midweek Conference Premier victory over

:21:20.:21:22.

Alfreton came at a cost. A number of players took knocks and may not be

:21:23.:21:26.

available to Gary Simpton for the Trophy game. We have had injuries

:21:27.:21:33.

and suspensions and it has really got to us. This game represents a

:21:34.:21:44.

genuine step up in class, but whoever wins, they will be in the

:21:45.:21:50.

last eight of this competition, so the archway of Wembley will start to

:21:51.:21:55.

come into view. What's at stake tomorrow.

:21:56.:22:00.

Hull City meet third`placed Chelsea in the Premier League in a repeat of

:22:01.:22:07.

the opening fixture of the season. Jose Mourinho's Chelsea secured a

:22:08.:22:10.

two`nil win against the Tigers at Stamford Bridge in August and Steve

:22:11.:22:13.

Bruce believes tomorrow's match will be just as difficult. The one thing

:22:14.:22:19.

we have to do is play well because if you play Chelsea in the team they

:22:20.:22:23.

have put out, they have to defend well and we have to pose a threat,

:22:24.:22:32.

because the quality is there for everybody to see, and the

:22:33.:22:40.

outstanding manager, they are rumbling along very, very nicely.

:22:41.:22:46.

Scunthorpe United have announced the signings of three players. Striker

:22:47.:22:48.

Paddy Madden and Midfielder Dave Syers have both agreed

:22:49.:22:50.

two`and`a`half`year contracts at Glanford Park. The Iron have also

:22:51.:22:53.

confirmed that Marcus Williams, who's been on loan with the club,

:22:54.:22:57.

has signed an 18` month deal. And BBC Radio Humberside will have

:22:58.:23:00.

coverage of that match on their FM frequency from three o'clock. Before

:23:01.:23:06.

that they will have commentary on Hull City's home game with Chelsea

:23:07.:23:15.

on FM. That's from 1245. Grimsby Town's FA Trophy trip to Maidenhead

:23:16.:23:19.

will be on digital and the web from three. For the North Ferriby

:23:20.:23:25.

perspective on their match against Lincoln City you will need to be on

:23:26.:23:29.

AM frequency. And BBC Radio Lincolnshire will also have

:23:30.:23:32.

commentary for Imps fans on all frequencies. Their coverage starts

:23:33.:23:40.

from two o'clock. Picasso, Matisse, Dali and Warhol

:23:41.:23:44.

are four of the biggest names in modern art and for the first time

:23:45.:23:47.

from tomorrow you can see works by all of them in Lincoln. After three

:23:48.:23:51.

years of careful negotiation the city's Usher Gallery has secured the

:23:52.:23:53.

Modern Master exhibition which showcases some of history's most

:23:54.:23:56.

iconic artworks. Simon Spark has been taking a look.

:23:57.:24:01.

Four artistic giants of the 20th Century are being displayed for the
