North. The headlines tonight: Millions of pounds for Lincolnshire

:00:09.:00:12.

as a major oil company invests in fracking in the county.

:00:13.:00:21.

This has been going on and has been done safely. It is not hugely

:00:22.:00:25.

impacting in terms of the local community.

:00:26.:00:27.

David Cameron visits Lincolnshire to give his support to fracking.

:00:28.:00:35.

People can already see this is a safe and successful industry,

:00:36.:00:38.

employing a local people. An inquest into the death of a Red

Arrows pilot hears an engineer who worked on his plane wasn't properly

authorised. The residents campaigning for the

:00:45.:00:47.

removal of this eyesore in the Humber.

Two games from Wembley ` non`league North Ferriby reach the quarter

:00:51.:00:58.

finals of the FA Trophy. And the forecast will follow later

:00:59.:01:00.

in the programme. The major French oil company Total

:01:01.:01:12.

has today announced it will invest ?28 million in Lincolnshire to carry

:01:13.:01:17.

out fracking. To show his support for the industry, the Prime Minister

:01:18.:01:20.

visited Lincolnshire this morning. On a trip to Gainsborough, he told

:01:21.:01:24.

BBC Look North that fracking, which is the extraction of shale gas from

:01:25.:01:27.

underground will bring huge benefits to the local economy. We'll hear

:01:28.:01:32.

from David Cameron in a moment, but first let's look at how widespread

:01:33.:01:35.

the impact of fracking could be for us here. The geology of our area

:01:36.:01:39.

means large parts of East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire have already been

:01:40.:01:41.

licensed for fracking, the black areas. In the red areas, more

:01:42.:01:46.

licences will be auctioned in the summer. So what does fracking

:01:47.:01:49.

involve? It means drilling down and then injecting a mix of water, sand

:01:50.:01:53.

and chemicals into the earth under high pressure. This then releases

:01:54.:01:59.

the shale gas which flows back to ground level. Supporters say it will

:02:00.:02:03.

mean cheap energy bills but environmental campaigners say the

:02:04.:02:05.

process could cause contamination and lead to earth tremors. Our first

:02:06.:02:12.

report tonight comes from our political editor, Tim Iredale.

:02:13.:02:18.

We have nothing to fear from fracking. That was the Prime

:02:19.:02:20.

Minister's message today, as he toured an oil depot near

:02:21.:02:24.

Gainsborough. This is one of the areas earmarked by the French energy

:02:25.:02:27.

giant Total which has announced the biggest ever investment in the UK

:02:28.:02:35.

shale gas industry. We are promised lower energy bills. Here on the

:02:36.:02:43.

Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire border, where we have oil and gas

:02:44.:02:46.

extraction taking place right now, people can already see this is a

:02:47.:02:49.

safe and successful industry, employing local people. It will be

:02:50.:02:55.

even more so when they moved to exploiting shale gas opportunities

:02:56.:02:57.

as well. But some remain sceptical about this new potential energy

:02:58.:03:07.

source. The health impacts of methane in the water courses are of

:03:08.:03:18.

a huge concern. Most importantly, it is local communities. They watch how

:03:19.:03:23.

we function and operate every day. Their right to ask the questions,

:03:24.:03:27.

but she'll gas... However, those already involved with shale gas

:03:28.:03:29.

exploration say that risk is minimal. The Government accepts his

:03:30.:03:34.

country as # this process is controversial, but he says people

:03:35.:03:38.

will come to see the economic benefits of shale gas exploration.

:03:39.:03:50.

I do apologise. That is a slight problem there with the film. I spoke

:03:51.:03:57.

to the group that interest `` represents the interests of the oil

:03:58.:04:00.

and gas industry and I asked what financial incentive Gainsborough

:04:01.:04:04.

would get. It is difficult to say at this

:04:05.:04:08.

process in time. In terms of funding, we have said five `?10

:04:09.:04:12.

million per site over the lifetime of the asset. Most of it will come

:04:13.:04:16.

in the first ten years. In terms of local communities, the Government

:04:17.:04:20.

has talked about business rates being 1.7 million for each council.

:04:21.:04:27.

This is a bribe, isn't it, to accept something that people do not want on

:04:28.:04:34.

their back door. Now, it is not a bribe. It is an award for hosting

:04:35.:04:38.

sites on behalf of others in the country. Secondly, it is a

:04:39.:04:41.

commonplace scheme in terms of business rates and committee funds.

:04:42.:04:46.

It comes from the onshore wind and give. Total is French. I gather fans

:04:47.:04:57.

do not want it and have come knocking here. Total's announcement

:04:58.:05:05.

today is very good in terms of energy security and economic

:05:06.:05:10.

benefits. France have made a political decision not to do

:05:11.:05:14.

hydraulic fracturing for this moment in time. That could change. We have

:05:15.:05:18.

heard the earthquake story in Blackpool. We have seen frightening

:05:19.:05:23.

pictures of tap water in America. We do not know if this is safe, do we?

:05:24.:05:30.

We have a highly regulated industry in the UK. We have four different

:05:31.:05:36.

regulators looking at this over a long period of time. We have been

:05:37.:05:39.

chilling in this country for over 100 years. We have hydraulically

:05:40.:05:45.

fractured very safely and environmentally sensitive way. But

:05:46.:05:49.

we have seen what happened in Blackpool. It is untested. Our

:05:50.:05:54.

broadcast area map almost identically is covered by the

:05:55.:05:59.

fracking map. What you say to people who are concerned? There was a study

:06:00.:06:07.

last year about induced seismicity. A situation like that will not

:06:08.:06:16.

happen again. Is it a gamble? No. The fracking process has caused

:06:17.:06:19.

widespread controversy, with environmental campaigners organising

:06:20.:06:21.

protests whenever it has been tested in other parts of the country. But

:06:22.:06:25.

supporters say it will mean more money for councils to spend on local

:06:26.:06:31.

services. Our reporter has been to the village of Laughton near

:06:32.:06:34.

Gainsborough to find out what people living there think of fracking in

:06:35.:06:36.

the area. Laughton, a quiet Lincolnshire

:06:37.:06:41.

village surrounded by fields. It is exactly the type of place companies

:06:42.:06:44.

think could be perfect to explore for shale gas. Last year, plans were

:06:45.:06:48.

approved to allow drilling on this field just outside the village.

:06:49.:06:52.

There was local opposition back then and villagers I've spoken to today

:06:53.:06:55.

say cash incentives wouldn't have made any difference. I would rather

:06:56.:07:05.

not have the fracking and not have any facilities that are likely to be

:07:06.:07:09.

provided by any so`called intervention money. Now, it is

:07:10.:07:16.

bribery. Out and out bribery. What we need here is not right money. So

:07:17.:07:22.

why such negativity towards fracking? Reports of

:07:23.:07:24.

mini`earthquakes, water contamination and environmental

:07:25.:07:26.

damage and the effect on the environment has worried many. Joy

:07:27.:07:33.

has lived here for 40 years. She believes any drilling nearby would

:07:34.:07:37.

change the nature of the village. I do worry quite a lot about the

:07:38.:07:41.

possibility of tremors. I am also annoyed about the aspect of

:07:42.:07:47.

wildlife. This is an area with a tremendous variety of wildlife. How

:07:48.:07:52.

that is good to be affected, I cannot begin to think. We will go

:07:53.:07:56.

through an extremely rigorous planning process. The council says

:07:57.:08:00.

the money offered by the Government won't influence decisions on whether

:08:01.:08:03.

to grant planning applications, but in principle it has welcomed the

:08:04.:08:08.

idea. It is nice that they are there, but it will not alter what we

:08:09.:08:12.

have to do to check and make sure that the application is safe. There

:08:13.:08:17.

has not been drilling here so far. After today's endorsements, it is

:08:18.:08:21.

likely many villages in this area could see applications for gas apple

:08:22.:08:25.

take `` gas exploration beneath them.

:08:26.:08:29.

We would be very keen to hear yours. `` hear your thoughts on

:08:30.:08:38.

this. Would you welcome fracking if it means bringing jobs and

:08:39.:08:41.

investment to the area? How worried are you about the environmental

:08:42.:08:44.

impacts, not just to Lincolnshire, but East Yorkshire as well? If you

:08:45.:08:49.

want to get in touch, follow the details on screen.

:08:50.:09:10.

An inquest into the death of a Red Arrows pilot has heard that a senior

:09:11.:09:16.

engineer had warned about a risk to life because of a lack of manpower

:09:17.:09:20.

and training of engineers working on his aircraft. Sean Cunningham died

:09:21.:09:22.

when his ejection seat activated while his plane was on the ground at

:09:23.:09:28.

RAF Scampton in November 2011. Today the inquest heard that the

:09:29.:09:31.

authorisation for one of the engineers had lapsed shortly before

:09:32.:09:33.

the accident. Jake Zuckerman has been in court. What was said about

:09:34.:09:36.

the lapse in authorisation? Today, the inquest has focussed on

:09:37.:09:39.

the maintenance undertaken on the ejection seat in Flight Lieutenant

:09:40.:09:42.

Cunningham's aircraft prior to the incident which led to his death.

:09:43.:09:45.

Cunningham's aircraft prior to the incident which led The inquest heard

:09:46.:09:47.

from Sergeant Michael Poultney, an armourer working at RAF Scampton.

:09:48.:09:51.

Prior to the incident, he had carried out work on the ejection

:09:52.:09:55.

seat. He said he wasn't aware that over`tightening a particular bolt

:09:56.:09:57.

could potentially lead to the seat failing to operate properly.

:09:58.:10:01.

It also emerged that his authorisation to carry out the work

:10:02.:10:04.

had lapsed, and that he should have undertaken a refresher course. The

:10:05.:10:14.

inquest here from senior officers about the laps and authorisation?

:10:15.:10:19.

The inquest also heard from Wing Commander Ross Priday, who was the

:10:20.:10:22.

senior engineering officer for the Red Arrows. He said, the fact that

:10:23.:10:25.

an authorisation had expired concerned me greatly. It was

:10:26.:10:29.

unacceptable. The inquest was told that an audit of Sergeant Poultney's

:10:30.:10:33.

work was carried out by the RAF, but no problems were highlighted. Wing

:10:34.:10:35.

Commander Priday said, the conclusion of that is that the lapse

:10:36.:10:38.

in authority posed no airworthiness or safety threat whatsoever and

:10:39.:10:41.

therefore wasn't a factor in this accident. In the course of evidence,

:10:42.:10:48.

it emerged that prior to the accident the Wing Commander had

:10:49.:10:51.

raised concerns about the risk to life posed by a lack of manpower and

:10:52.:10:55.

training issues on the engineering side at the Red Arrows. But he said

:10:56.:11:00.

that he didn't believe that either of these issues had contributed to

:11:01.:11:04.

the accident that killed Sean Cunningham. The inquest continues

:11:05.:11:19.

tomorrow. Police have named a man from Louth who was found murdered

:11:20.:11:22.

over the weekend. Richard Samuel Woods ` who was 32 ` was found at a

:11:23.:11:26.

house on Spring Terrace in the early hours of Sunday morning. A

:11:27.:11:29.

23`year`old man arrested at the scene remains in police custody.

:11:30.:11:32.

Hull Crown Court has heard today how a 28`year`old woman died in a crash

:11:33.:11:36.

after her car was hit by another vehicle driven in a tragic

:11:37.:11:39.

coincidence by her younger sister. Rosie Ann Stone, who is 20, denies

:11:40.:11:42.

causing the death of her sister Jennie Stone by careless driving on

:11:43.:11:45.

the A165 near Fraisthorpe. The collision last February happened

:11:46.:11:48.

just months after their soldier brother, Greg, was killed in

:11:49.:11:50.

Afghanistan. The case continues. Hull City Council's cabinet has

:11:51.:11:53.

backed a report recommending the closure of Endeavour High School

:11:54.:11:58.

next year. The school, which opened in 2003, has been placed in special

:11:59.:12:02.

measures three times and has seen a yearly fall in student numbers.

:12:03.:12:10.

Railway services between Sleaford and Lincoln have returned to normal

:12:11.:12:13.

today. The lime has been closed since Tuesday due to landslip.

:12:14.:12:19.

Network Rail see that work to stabilise the bank has been

:12:20.:12:20.

completed. It is claimed that a disused tidal

:12:21.:12:24.

power generator in the Humber is an eyesore and is affecting house

:12:25.:12:28.

prices in the area. Now a campaign has begun to have it removed. The

:12:29.:12:32.

Neptune was built to provide power to The Deep, but the project was

:12:33.:12:35.

scrapped when the company behind it went into liquidation. Emma Massey

:12:36.:12:37.

reports. This is the Neptune, the result of

:12:38.:12:42.

seven years of private investment. Its job ` to harness the power of

:12:43.:12:45.

the River Humber to generate electricity. The project was

:12:46.:12:49.

abandoned nearly a year ago, and so too was this yellow contraption. Now

:12:50.:12:58.

we have got a pile of junk overlooking all the residents.

:12:59.:13:02.

Phillip Gittens, who had enjoyed the views from his house for seven years

:13:03.:13:05.

before it arrived, says his neighbours in Victoria Dock feel the

:13:06.:13:08.

same way. It's an eyesore and they want it removed. If you were looking

:13:09.:13:14.

at the window before that came, you looked onto the river. It was a nice

:13:15.:13:21.

view. Now you look onto that monstrosity. For this house

:13:22.:13:24.

particularly, it looks directly onto it. Neptune Renewable Energy

:13:25.:13:28.

deployed it in January 2012 but despite testing and modifications

:13:29.:13:30.

they were unable to achieve enough electricity. The company then went

:13:31.:13:41.

into liquidation. It is not being maintained because the company

:13:42.:13:44.

behind it has gone past. There is a problem with noise from it. We're

:13:45.:13:47.

worried about vandalism on the site. We were promised when it first went

:13:48.:13:52.

in that the area would be returned to the stated was before it went in,

:13:53.:13:56.

and that is what we want to see happen. The Crown now owns the land

:13:57.:14:00.

the device is on. They have to maintain it but they don't have to

:14:01.:14:03.

remove it. That's the job of the Department for Energy and Climate

:14:04.:14:07.

Change. It's says it's in "active discussions with partner agencies

:14:08.:14:09.

for the safe and expedient decommissioning of the facility

:14:10.:14:11.

following the owners going into liquidation". But this won't be a

:14:12.:14:20.

quick process. You have got to think about the environment, navigational

:14:21.:14:24.

safety. It is not just the case of killing of the bulldozer and taking

:14:25.:14:30.

it away. It is a very complicated process that has to be going through

:14:31.:14:34.

to decommission it. I would imagine the decommissioning process would

:14:35.:14:36.

have been thought about when the original licence for the facility

:14:37.:14:38.

was granted. There were high hopes for this

:14:39.:14:41.

renewable energy device to power business and homes along the Humber.

:14:42.:14:45.

Now the only hope is that it is removed. And while as yet there's no

:14:46.:14:48.

frame for that, residents should feel safe in the knowledge that the

:14:49.:14:52.

lease cannot be sold on. So once this eyesore has gone, it's gone for

:14:53.:15:01.

good. We will let you know what happens on that one.

:15:02.:15:04.

Still ahead tonight: Smoking allowed ` the fish producers who say their

:15:05.:15:08.

protected status has been a waste of time.

:15:09.:15:12.

The best and the worst ` one train spotter's journey around all of the

:15:13.:15:14.

country's stations. Tonight's photograph is taken by

:15:15.:15:31.

Terry Wilde in East Park Lake. Stunning picture. Thank you very

:15:32.:15:42.

much. Send your photograph in. I thought we did a train anorak

:15:43.:15:47.

piece last week? This is very embarrassing. Let's have a look at

:15:48.:15:54.

the weather over the next 24 hours. There is a warning of is in place.

:15:55.:16:00.

We have not seen that too often this winter. But we will have is for the

:16:01.:16:05.

commute fostering in the morning. Tomorrow, a lovely winter's day, try

:16:06.:16:12.

with sunshine. A ridge of high pressure before this weather system

:16:13.:16:18.

brings rain in from the South West. In mild day to come on Wednesday.

:16:19.:16:25.

This is the line of showers. This arm of showers came through

:16:26.:16:27.

Birmingham with hailstones and torrential rain. It is heading

:16:28.:16:30.

towards Lincolnshire in the next couple of hours. It will slowly

:16:31.:16:34.

cloud over and there will be a scattering of showers, erratically

:16:35.:16:37.

spreading north eastwards. We will see clearer skies developing right

:16:38.:16:42.

towards the end of the night. That is when temperatures will take a dip

:16:43.:16:46.

and there is a risk of icy patches on untreated surfaces. Lows in the

:16:47.:16:53.

range of 1`3 Celsius. The sun will rise in the morning at 12 minutes

:16:54.:16:56.

past eight. Your next high water time, there we are. Patchy fog and

:16:57.:17:06.

icy patches. It will brighten up fairly steadily through the

:17:07.:17:09.

first`half of the morning. It is a winter's day, that high insuring a

:17:10.:17:14.

dry day with sunshine and just like West Southwest wind. Despite the

:17:15.:17:19.

fact it will be a light wind, it will feel quite chilly with highs

:17:20.:17:25.

below average of five Celsius. Rain to come on Tuesday night. Wednesday,

:17:26.:17:30.

rain at fast and again late on. In between, mild and drive but cloudy

:17:31.:17:35.

with, at the moment, Thursday and Friday looking dry with some

:17:36.:17:36.

sunshine. That is the forecast. I tell you what, I will send you the

:17:37.:17:54.

invoice for that one. See you tomorrow.

:17:55.:17:57.

Four years ago, traditional Grimsby smoked fish joined the likes of

:17:58.:18:00.

champagne and Wensleydale cheese, winning EU protected status. But

:18:01.:18:03.

while it has led to increased sales for other foods, Grimsby's

:18:04.:18:06.

smokehouses say they haven't seen the benefit at all, and the local

:18:07.:18:09.

council isn't doing enough to promote them. Jill Archbold reports.

:18:10.:18:19.

Here in Grimsby, they have been smoking fish to the traditional

:18:20.:18:22.

recipe for more than 100 years. We have the salmon at the bottom, the

:18:23.:18:27.

other biggest Sony do most smoke. They will be in for 24 hours. The

:18:28.:18:31.

haddock is higher up in the smokers. Four years ago, Grimsby's

:18:32.:18:38.

traditionally smoked fish won an award. But they say the council is

:18:39.:18:44.

not supported industry enough. It is simple things like seeing this is

:18:45.:18:49.

the home of Grimsby traditionally smoked fish. So that when people

:18:50.:18:53.

enter the town they know will work to go. Protected geographical

:18:54.:18:58.

indication was introduced by the European Union in 1993. Products

:18:59.:19:03.

registered under the scheme have legal protection against imitation

flout the EU. 63 British prog... Products are protected. `` 63

:19:08.:19:20.

British products are protected. The food tourism industry is worth ?70

:19:21.:19:25.

million a year. If they do not promote it, they are missing a

:19:26.:19:29.

trick. Grimsby is a lot larger than ours and the opportunity for them is

:19:30.:19:34.

enormous. Not just an smoked fish, but also using other seafood

:19:35.:19:38.

products. I am committed to getting as much out of tourism for the

:19:39.:19:44.

borrower of knowledge. It is `` if it is through fish processing, we're

:19:45.:19:48.

up for it. I would like to see what they would like the council to do.

:19:49.:19:52.

Meanwhile, at the traditional fish docks, traditional smokers say there

:19:53.:19:55.

is potential for to those based industry. `` 40 tourism based

:19:56.:20:00.

industry. A BBC Inside Out investigation has

:20:01.:20:04.

discovered the current leadership of the National Union of Mineworkers is

:20:05.:20:07.

threatening to sue its former leader Arthur Scargill for just over

:20:08.:20:10.

?100,000. The money was paid to cover legal bills run up by the

:20:11.:20:13.

International Energy and Miners Organisation, of which mist Scargill

:20:14.:20:18.

is president. The NUM has also stopped payments of ?20,000 a year

:20:19.:20:21.

in subscriptions to the organisation.

:20:22.:20:30.

The trouble happened when I was asked to justify paying that amount

:20:31.:20:38.

of money and I asked to look at accounts and was refused to be

:20:39.:20:43.

given. We'll do think that ?20,000 a year has been going? I have no idea.

:20:44.:20:49.

That is why want to see the accounts.

:20:50.:20:51.

In a statement, Mr Scargill told us the NUM had breached a decision of

:20:52.:20:55.

its own conference by stopping the payments. He says the IEMO has

:20:56.:20:57.

always presented accounts in accordance with the instruction of

:20:58.:21:01.

its congress. And there's more on that story in a special Inside Out

:21:02.:21:04.

investigation tonight on BBC One at 7.30pm.

A home tie in the quarterfinal of the FA Trophy is North Ferriby

:21:10.:21:12.

United's reward for their 4`0 victory at Lincoln City. They'll now

:21:13.:21:19.

play Gosport in the next round while Grimsby Town also have home

:21:20.:21:22.

advantage. With all the football news, here's our sports reporter

:21:23.:21:27.

Simon Clark. They have been playing on a

:21:28.:21:31.

different planet this season, but a 4`0 victory at Lincoln City must be

:21:32.:21:36.

one of the best in this history of North Ferriby United. It is given a

:21:37.:21:41.

quarterfinal tie against Gosport. Gosport in the conference South.

:21:42.:21:48.

They are not a team that is playing `` plying their trade at a higher

:21:49.:21:52.

level. We have to consider home advantage is a great opportunity to

:21:53.:21:58.

get to the semifinal. The draw for North Ferriby United against Gosport

:21:59.:22:00.

means they have missed some of the bigger guns in the competition,

:22:01.:22:02.

including Grimsby Town, who will play the winners of the Tamworth

:22:03.:22:12.

`trolley replay. Hull City were having a more difficult time against

:22:13.:22:16.

Chelsea in the Premier League. If it wasn't for Allan McGregor,

:22:17.:22:21.

this could have been far worse. Time and again, Scotland's number one

:22:22.:22:24.

came to the rescue with a number of fine saves from excellent Chelsea

:22:25.:22:28.

play. In the end, he was blameless for the Chelsea goals. The first was

:22:29.:22:36.

a splendid effort from Eden Hazard. The second near the end was struck

:22:37.:22:41.

by Fernando Torres. The season will not be defined by games against

:22:42.:22:46.

Chelsea. But over the last couple of months, especially against the big

:22:47.:22:49.

boys, we have kept the ball better and played better as a team. Today,

:22:50.:22:53.

first`half was OK, second`half, we will know will near posing a threat.

:22:54.:23:00.

One of the special goals of the weekend came from Scunthorpe

:23:01.:23:06.

United's Paul Hayes. Sign for a third spell, he kept United top of

:23:07.:23:11.

League Two with the second. Some goal that, from Paul Hayes. Back to

:23:12.:23:16.

the FA Trophy quarterfinals. They will be played on the 1st of

:23:17.:23:19.

February, which could have an impact on the gate here. Just down the road

:23:20.:23:24.

on the same day at the same time, Hull City will be playing Tottenham

:23:25.:23:29.

Hotspur. Well done to them.

:23:30.:23:38.

It Lincolnshire cricketer was one of the top performers as England's

:23:39.:23:47.

woman won the Ashes. She scored a total of 103 in the victory.

:23:48.:23:50.

Fantastic news. It has taken him four years and he's

:23:51.:23:54.

covered thousands of miles in that time. Andrew Dowd has visited every

:23:55.:24:00.

one of the 2,548 railway stations in Britain and he says Gainsborough's

:24:01.:24:04.

central station is the worst one he visited. I've been talking to Andrew

:24:05.:24:12.

about his visits and asked him what was wrong with Gainsborough.

:24:13.:24:18.

Quite a lot of things, actually. It is inaccessible and could not give

:24:19.:24:21.

your Friday. It was locked up. Only open on Saturday. It looked very

:24:22.:24:26.

weedy, full of weeds and very unloved. That is not good news, is

:24:27.:24:32.

it? What needs to be done to Gainsborough station, then? Better

:24:33.:24:38.

services, maybe one in the morning and in the evening rather than all

:24:39.:24:42.

on a Saturday. Bit of tell `` a bit of TLC as well. You are an expert.

:24:43.:24:50.

What makes a good station? It would have to be staff, services, access

:24:51.:24:56.

ability. For me personally, and is coughing on the platform. You're

:24:57.:25:01.

going to the train station to train, not a coffee. You do look barrel

:25:02.:25:11.

haven, don't you? Yes, I do. I am a big fan of not just visiting

:25:12.:25:16.

stations, but exploring Britain. When you go a few metres away from

:25:17.:25:23.

the station platform at Barrow Haven, it has the River Humber and

:25:24.:25:29.

Humber Bridge in the background. You have all this information in your

:25:30.:25:34.

bedroom. I do. It is on my computer ready for when they could be

:25:35.:25:40.

published or make a book. You never know. I would love to read it. Very

:25:41.:25:44.

good to have gone the programme. Thank you very much indeed. It has

:25:45.:25:50.

been a pleasure. Andrew has been to every single railway station in the

:25:51.:25:53.

country. Another study might want to comment

:25:54.:25:58.

on. Is Andrew being unkind to Gainsborough station? He thinks it

:25:59.:26:01.

is the worst in the country. Which would you vote as the best or worst

:26:02.:26:05.

railway stations in Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire? The contact details

:26:06.:26:14.

are on screen. Look forward to hearing from you on the subject of

:26:15.:26:16.

railway stations. Let's get a recap of the national

:26:17.:26:19.

and regional headlines. Local councils which back fracking

:26:20.:26:22.

are promised more money despite concerns from green groups.

:26:23.:26:24.

David Cameron visits Lincolnshire to give his support to the exploration

:26:25.:26:33.

for shale gas. People can already see that this is a safe and

:26:34.:26:35.

successful industry, employing local people. The Prime Minister talking

:26:36.:26:40.

on the programme. Tomorrow's weather: Patchy fog

:26:41.:26:43.

increase later with rain spreading east in the evening and overnight.

:26:46.:26:47.

clearing Maximum temperature, five Celsius.

:26:48.:26:55.

A big response on the subject of fracking. Philip on Twitter says,

:26:56.:26:59.

where else will we get gas from when the North Sea is out? I would rather

:27:00.:27:04.

be energy independent and dependent on Russia. Paul says we need things

:27:05.:27:07.

like this in the area. We need the jobs. Barry says

:27:08.:27:15.

fracking is part of the future. Would the naysayers Professor Cole

:27:16.:27:18.

mile or nuclear power station? Fracking is safe and I know what I

:27:19.:27:22.

would prefer. This is small`minded and India is small`minded and

:27:23.:27:27.

India's, get real. `` this is small mindedness.

:27:28.:27:34.

David Cameron knows it is dangerous but all he sees as profit for he and

:27:35.:27:38.

his mates, not the local economy. Lots of messages on this subject.
