ambushed a train at Drax Power Station have had their convictions

:00:28.:00:30.

We have to work hard to make a profit. . We've had Prime Ministers

:00:31.:00:37.

say how proud they are of their soldiers. They gave their yesterdays

:00:38.:00:41.

for our tomorrows. We owe it to them.

:00:42.:00:46.

Protesters who ambushed a train at Drax Power Station have had their

:00:47.:00:50.

convictions overturned. And Sold for their looks, now rescue

:00:51.:00:53.

charities say they're overwhelmed by abandoned wolf`like dogs.

:00:54.:00:59.

Rain on the way tonight. That detailed five`day forecast follow

:01:00.:01:00.

very shortly. Good evening. Crime is down across

:01:01.:01:17.

Lincolnshire according to the county's Police and Crime

:01:18.:01:20.

Commisioner. But MPs have suggested that police crime figures should be

:01:21.:01:23.

taken with a pinch of salt amid claims that some forces are

:01:24.:01:26.

manipulating the numbers to try and hit targets. Alan Hardwick says his

:01:27.:01:30.

force doesn't have targets and the figures are accurate. Today he's

:01:31.:01:33.

announced plans to deal with shoplifting which is one of the few

:01:34.:01:37.

crimes on the rise. Simon Spark reports. Stacking shelves but

:01:38.:01:46.

keeping a careful watch. Theft and shoplifting has increased by 5% in

:01:47.:01:50.

the last year, with an extra 443 crimes, according to Lincolnshire

:01:51.:01:54.

police's latest performance report. But that's in surprise to this shop

:01:55.:02:00.

in Lincoln. Unfortunately we have more shoplifting. Anything, food,

:02:01.:02:04.

alcohol, anything is with people with hardly any income. They are

:02:05.:02:09.

desperate for things and they target shops like this but shops like this

:02:10.:02:15.

have quite low margins and we have to work as hard as we can to make a

:02:16.:02:21.

profit and it really does call financial problems.

:02:22.:02:24.

But Lincolnshire police are pleased with their results. They show

:02:25.:02:28.

overall crime down by 3%, antisocial behaviour down by 14, and a decline

:02:29.:02:35.

in vile bins more than 9%. I'm `` in violence.

:02:36.:02:38.

I'm delighted with this report. It just shows that the leanest funded

:02:39.:02:42.

force in the country can continue to produce results that are, well,

:02:43.:02:46.

let's say, punch well above its weight. The report comes out, of

:02:47.:02:50.

course, just when police figures are being questioned generally for their

:02:51.:02:55.

be a radioscy. The Home Secretary, Theresa May, has written to every

:02:56.:02:58.

police chief in the country to ensure they keep accurate figures.

:02:59.:03:02.

But what damage does this do to public confidence, in figures like

:03:03.:03:07.

this? It makes you wonder sometimes. Obviously it needs to be reported

:03:08.:03:11.

more accurately, doesn't it? We encourage our children to talk to

:03:12.:03:15.

policemen because they give you an honest answer. Now you think ` do

:03:16.:03:21.

they or don't they? A bit sceptical. The whole thing has been grossly

:03:22.:03:25.

mishandled. I'm not surprised the public have the wrong idea. All I

:03:26.:03:29.

can do is speak for Lincolnshire and say I'm as confident as it is

:03:30.:03:34.

possible to be that the way that we record and report crime figures is

:03:35.:03:38.

honest and is probust. No questions have been raised about

:03:39.:03:44.

the reliability of Lincolnshire's fillings, but they are still having

:03:45.:03:48.

to restore public confidence and justify their claims. `

:03:49.:03:51.

Lincolnshire's figures. I spoke to the MP, Bernard Jenkin, Chairman of

:03:52.:03:56.

an influential #35r789ry committee that has been looking into the

:03:57.:04:02.

accuracy of crime figures. `` parliamentary committee. I asked

:04:03.:04:05.

them if people in Lincolnshire can trust the figures published today?

:04:06.:04:10.

To a degree, yes. But overall the statistics have been downgraded.

:04:11.:04:14.

They are no longer national statistics. Lincolnshire is a good

:04:15.:04:18.

example. The Police and Crime Commissioner doesn't set targets.

:04:19.:04:21.

The overwhelming conclusion we have received in evidence, is that it is

:04:22.:04:24.

the targets that distort the figures because the police, with the best

:04:25.:04:27.

will in the world, they are trying to meet the targets, not record the

:04:28.:04:32.

crimes. If you don't have any targets, Lincolnshire can't fail

:04:33.:04:34.

because they are not saying what they are going to do. The targets

:04:35.:04:38.

should not be the criteria for success or failure. The question is

:04:39.:04:42.

how safe the population feels and whether the overall crime survey

:04:43.:04:45.

figures, a different measure of crime, is going down. Do some police

:04:46.:04:51.

forces massage figures, or have they done so? Massage is probably too

:04:52.:04:54.

strong a word. The problem we have, is after decades of target`driven

:04:55.:04:58.

behaviour in police force, there is a habit amongst, you know, the desk

:04:59.:05:03.

sergeant punching the numbers into his computer ` oh, I think I'll make

:05:04.:05:08.

this a criminal damage, not an attempted robbery or I think we'll

:05:09.:05:13.

put this mobile phone down as "lost" rather than "stolen", to make the

:05:14.:05:17.

figures look better. It was part of the team effort to present a good

:05:18.:05:20.

face. Obviously that's in the what what we want. Changing that

:05:21.:05:24.

behaviour in some police force also take a long time. Is the way that

:05:25.:05:27.

crime is recorded at the moment, is it clear enough and good enough and

:05:28.:05:30.

can we always trust what the police say?

:05:31.:05:36.

Well, what we need is more auditing of crime, recorded crime figures, so

:05:37.:05:40.

that there is a more checking up, more policing of the system but

:05:41.:05:44.

also, to encourage police ` and this is a real challenge for leadership `

:05:45.:05:49.

to put the values of their policing service above whatever targets there

:05:50.:05:53.

might be. To put the integrity and honesty and the behaviour of police

:05:54.:05:57.

officers above the achievement of any targets for this crime or that

:05:58.:06:00.

kind of crime. Very good to talk to you, Mr Jenkin.

:06:01.:06:03.

Thank you very much. Your thoughts on this: Do you trust

:06:04.:06:08.

the crime figures when they are published. Are targets important or

:06:09.:06:12.

do they encourage manipulation of crime records? Do you trust what you

:06:13.:06:16.

have heard of figures. If you want to be in touch, you can e`mail, or

:06:17.:06:20.

text us. Now, in a moment on tonight's

:06:21.:06:37.

programme: The inquest into the death of a Red Arrows pilot hears

:06:38.:06:42.

evidence from evector seat experts. Force Protestors who ambushed a coal

:06:43.:06:50.

train on its way to Drax Power Station near Goole have had their

:06:51.:06:53.

convictions quashed by the Court of Appeal. The 29 activists were

:06:54.:06:56.

cleared because an undercover policeman's involvement in the

:06:57.:06:58.

protest was kept secret. They're now calling for a public inquiry into

:06:59.:07:01.

undercover police work. Jake Zuckerman has more.

:07:02.:07:07.

Result is that the convictions are all quashed. The moment a judge at

:07:08.:07:13.

the Court of Appeal overturned the convictions of 29 environmental

:07:14.:07:18.

protesters. Outside they gave their reaction. We just feel really

:07:19.:07:21.

pleased to have been able to continue to shine a light on the

:07:22.:07:26.

underhand tactics of undercover police officers in solidarity with

:07:27.:07:30.

other individuals and groups that have actually suffered far, far

:07:31.:07:34.

greater miscarriages of justice. In 2008, protesters ambushed a train

:07:35.:07:38.

carrying coal to Drax Power Station near Goole. 29 were later convicted

:07:39.:07:44.

of obstructing railway engines and were given either a conditional

:07:45.:07:47.

discharge or community service but what they didn't know at the time

:07:48.:07:52.

was that their convictions depended on the secret evidence of Mark

:07:53.:07:56.

Kennedy an undercover police officer who infiltrated their group. Today

:07:57.:07:59.

the Appeal Court threw out their convictions because the protesters

:08:00.:08:02.

should have been told about his involvement.

:08:03.:08:05.

Paul was one of those cleared but he remains concerned about the use of

:08:06.:08:11.

undercover policing. Undercover policing is being used to support

:08:12.:08:15.

operations and support the police and support the status quo rather

:08:16.:08:19.

nan protecting citizens from violence and such like. We are

:08:20.:08:23.

calling for a public inquiry where we get all this out in the open.

:08:24.:08:28.

Mark Kennedy drove the activists to the protests before tipping off

:08:29.:08:30.

transport police. If protesters had known he was a policeman, they could

:08:31.:08:34.

have argued he'd led them to it and it was because they never had that

:08:35.:08:37.

opportunity that the Appeal Court quashed their convictions.

:08:38.:08:43.

It was West Yorkshire Police who authorised the use of the undercover

:08:44.:08:47.

police officer and in a at the same time tonight it said, "We will look

:08:48.:08:50.

at today's judgment in detail before deciding if any action is needed."

:08:51.:08:57.

An undertaker from Scunthorpe has appealed to the Prime Minister to

:08:58.:09:00.

ensure that war veterans without close family aren't given "paupers"

:09:01.:09:04.

funerals. It comes after Sue McLane was asked to cremate a 90`year`old

:09:05.:09:06.

ex`serviceman, while all his possessions, including his medals,

:09:07.:09:11.

would have been thrown in a skip. She says she wants the Government to

:09:12.:09:15.

pay for those who served the country to get a proper send`off.

:09:16.:09:22.

For ten years, Michael Clarke was a Royal Marine. He died in a care home

:09:23.:09:30.

with no immediate family. His friend barksy Armstrong, was told Michael

:09:31.:09:36.

would be given a basic council`funded funeral and that all

:09:37.:09:38.

his possessions would be thrown away. I said ` what happens then?

:09:39.:09:43.

They said, question get a skip and teleeverything and we deal with the

:09:44.:09:47.

funeral. It just didn't seem right. You can't treat a man like that. You

:09:48.:09:50.

wouldn't treat an animal like that. It shouldn't happen ever again. And

:09:51.:09:56.

funeral director Sue Maclean awith the report of bare and the Royal

:09:57.:10:00.

British Legion, she organised Michael Clarke's funeral in

:10:01.:10:04.

Scunthorpe. They arranged for more than 160 soldiers to come to pay

:10:05.:10:10.

their last respect We had the Piper Piping Men and a bugler play the

:10:11.:10:16.

Last Post for me that's the way every serviceman and woman should

:10:17.:10:19.

have their final journey. We have had Prime Ministers say how proud

:10:20.:10:23.

they are of their soldiers. They gave their yesterdays for our

:10:24.:10:27.

tomorrows. We owe it to them. It is not the first time ex`servicemen

:10:28.:10:30.

have been honoured by people they never knew. Last year hundreds of

:10:31.:10:37.

people attended the funeral of world World War Two veteran Harold

:10:38.:10:42.

Percival. Now an MP is backing the campaign to ensure former soldiers

:10:43.:10:46.

without families are honoured. It is important that we have people like

:10:47.:10:50.

Sue Maclean, willing to champion these issues, so that we can ` you

:10:51.:10:53.

know I have written to the Prime Minister, I have written to the

:10:54.:10:56.

Royal British Legion to see what sort of response we can get from

:10:57.:11:00.

them to address this issue. Sue Maclean has now started a

:11:01.:11:03.

petition, calling on the Prime Minister to take her idea on board.

:11:04.:11:08.

We asked the Government about Sue's campaign. It says it remains the

:11:09.:11:12.

legal duty of local councils to provide a burial when that person

:11:13.:11:17.

can't provide for themselves. But there should be consideration,

:11:18.:11:21.

especially when that person has served their country.

:11:22.:11:25.

Sue's now displaying Michael Clarke's medals, that she saved from

:11:26.:11:29.

the skip. But she wants change so no soldier without a family is

:11:30.:11:36.

forgotten. It raises an interesting debate.

:11:37.:11:44.

Anne`Marie Tasker joins me now. Is there any chance of the government

:11:45.:11:47.

agreeing to fund the funerals of ex servicemen? As he explained in the

:11:48.:11:50.

report, it is the council's responsibility to pay for fun radios

:11:51.:11:52.

like this. But should they consider it in the future it would raise

:11:53.:11:56.

issues like, for example, for 15 years nearly every man in this

:11:57.:12:00.

country did national service, that poses the question ` would all of

:12:01.:12:03.

those countes a ex`servicemen. When I spoke to the Royal British Legion

:12:04.:12:06.

today they said at the moment, at least, it is very rare that there is

:12:07.:12:12.

an ex`serviceman who dies who has no immediate family. We will throw this

:12:13.:12:16.

open as well. Do you think ex`service personnel should have

:12:17.:12:19.

military funeral paid for by the state or is it asking too much from

:12:20.:12:23.

the tax payer? If you want to comment on this, you can e`mail in:

:12:24.:12:30.

Police say they're now treating the death of a man in Lincolnshire as

:12:31.:12:43.

murder. The body of twenty four`year`old Evans Zanovich was

:12:44.:12:46.

found at his home on Etherington Street in Gainsborough last Friday.

:12:47.:12:50.

Police say a fire at his house was deliberately started.

:12:51.:12:51.

Managers at the world's leading manufacturer of ejector seats have

:12:52.:12:54.

been giving evidence at the inquest into the death of a Red Arrows

:12:55.:12:57.

pilot. Flight Lieutenant Sean Cunningham died when the seat in his

:12:58.:13:01.

Hawk jet fired as he prepared to take off and the parachute failed to

:13:02.:13:03.

deploy. Many of the questions in the inquest

:13:04.:13:12.

are about a nut and bolt like this one. They attached to a shackle like

:13:13.:13:16.

this, which holds the parachute in place until it's needed but when

:13:17.:13:22.

Flight Lieu ten act Sean Cunningham's seat activated when he

:13:23.:13:28.

was on the ground, his parachute did not release. The seat manufacturer

:13:29.:13:33.

carried out tests after he died. Nicholas Moss, the QC for the

:13:34.:13:36.

Ministry of Defence asked why the equipment used in those tests were

:13:37.:13:43.

new, even though those used on Sean Cunningham's seats were not new.

:13:44.:13:51.

Steven Ru if, f said they used the equipment they had in store. He said

:13:52.:13:54.

they were carried out in good faith. It was fact`finding, not to point

:13:55.:13:59.

blame. Yesterday the inquest heard that Martin Baker hadn't told the

:14:00.:14:03.

MoD about a potential problem with the nut and bolt dating back to the

:14:04.:14:07.

1990s. Sean Cunningham's parents have been a regular presence in the

:14:08.:14:11.

core beer's court. Before he left the room one of the witnesses from

:14:12.:14:16.

Martin Baker passed on the company's condolences. The inquest is set to

:14:17.:14:21.

continue on Thursday. Jessica is in Lincoln at the moment. What has been

:14:22.:14:24.

said today about the training given to those using the ejector seats?

:14:25.:14:30.

Well, much has been made today about the amount of detail given to

:14:31.:14:34.

engineers about exactly how to maintain those ejection seats

:14:35.:14:37.

without causing damage it the nut and bolt you saw earlier. It's

:14:38.:14:41.

emerged during the inquest that the same information was not given to

:14:42.:14:46.

ever are I air or even used by Martin Baker and the RAF themselves.

:14:47.:14:53.

However one Martin Baker employee said they had been using this

:14:54.:14:56.

particular neck nichl for years before Sean Cunningham died and he

:14:57.:15:01.

described it as an unexpected and single rogue event. We will follow

:15:02.:15:04.

that and continue to do so. Thank you for watching. It is

:15:05.:15:13.

6.43pm. Still ahead: A call for tighter regulation as

:15:59.:16:01.

I'm devastated. In your dreams.

:16:02.:16:05.

Now look at the headlines for the next 24 hours. Unsettled. Quite a

:16:06.:16:10.

bit of rain around in the morning T does improve slowly through tomorrow

:16:11.:16:13.

afternoon. Hopefully it does brighten up. This weather front

:16:14.:16:18.

making slow progress, it eventually clears, with showers spreading in

:16:19.:16:22.

from the west through Thursday. More rain by the end of Friday. So as I

:16:23.:16:27.

say looking unsettled. Many of us have been stuck in fog, particularly

:16:28.:16:32.

across Lincolnshire. The current temperature at Waddington lifted up

:16:33.:16:35.

to 2 degrees as the fog now is lifting but it has been a cold, day

:16:36.:16:40.

grey. It is chilly this evening, a touch of ground frost but the wind

:16:41.:16:44.

will continue to increase, as the rain eventually pushes in from the

:16:45.:16:47.

west. After midnight for most of us, but it looks as they it'll be a

:16:48.:16:52.

fairly wet second half to tonight. Lowest temperatures around now, one

:16:53.:16:54.

or two Celsius. The sun will rise just after 8.00am

:16:55.:17:10.

tomorrow: A miserable, cold, cloudy, wet, dank morning across all parts

:17:11.:17:15.

with outbreaks of rain. Persistent rain at that. It'll slowly edge out.

:17:16.:17:20.

Not clearing the coast until early afternoon. Hopefully brideness

:17:21.:17:26.

spreading in from the west. Tomorrow morning looks dreadful with a

:17:27.:17:29.

moderate south or south`east wind. Temperatures eventually up to six,

:17:30.:17:34.

probably seven. But certainly for much of the morning it'll feel

:17:35.:17:38.

pretty cold. Looking further ahead. A showery day on Thursday, sunny

:17:39.:17:41.

intervals, scattered showers. Friday, a bright morning, it clouds

:17:42.:17:44.

over with rain towards the end fted day. The weekend increasingly windy,

:17:45.:17:49.

with a risk of more rain. Peter, that's the forecast. #7

Aer North Lincolnshire dogs home say they have seen a large number of

:18:14.:18:17.

wolf`like dogs, particularly huskies, made fashionable by films

:18:18.:18:22.

like Twilight, bane donned. It is claimed that breeders are cashing in

:18:23.:18:31.

on this late etc status symbol dog and selling the puppies.

:18:32.:18:37.

This is Loki. His owner couldn't look after him any more so. Home for

:18:38.:18:43.

now is this dog rescue centre in Brigg. Huskies and crosses with

:18:44.:18:48.

malamute. Lots of people are ringing up asking us to take them. We don't

:18:49.:18:54.

have the space. We see them coming n when they hit at lessens and stop

:18:55.:18:59.

being so pretty and need to run. That's what they are breed to do,

:19:00.:19:03.

pulling sleds over long distances as seen here at the annual UK sled dog

:19:04.:19:08.

races in Scotland but the dogs trust has seen a 61% rise in these breeds

:19:09.:19:14.

being abandoned I think it is a slit fashion thing and #23i678s like

:19:15.:19:19.

Twilight have made them popular. There is no getting a I way from the

:19:20.:19:22.

fact that they are good`looking dogs and they are nice, people need to do

:19:23.:19:26.

a lot of research before taking that responsibility on.

:19:27.:19:32.

It is scenes like this, Jacob Black's half`man half`wolf character

:19:33.:19:41.

in Twilight, blamed in part for the trend. A decade ago you had to go on

:19:42.:19:45.

your door that day. Further north, Kay has four huge and energetic

:19:59.:20:06.

malamutes. She is a Kennel Club`assured breeder and wants

:20:07.:20:10.

tighter breeders. We have people ring up and say ` would a malamute

:20:11.:20:14.

sit in the front seat of my sports car. No is the quick answer to that.

:20:15.:20:18.

There seems to be a continual churning out of puppies, three,

:20:19.:20:23.

four, litters a year without thought for their futures. Back at the dogs'

:20:24.:20:27.

home, Loki has been looking for two months now for the right owner with

:20:28.:20:31.

the time and energy to look after him.

:20:32.:20:35.

The MP for Grimsby has written to Channel 4 asking them to ` not to

:20:36.:20:40.

film a new series of Skint in the town. The broadcaster has confirmed

:20:41.:20:45.

it is carrying out research in Grimsby but Austin Mitchell says he

:20:46.:20:49.

is worried the show will only demonise the poor. Last year it

:20:50.:20:59.

caused caused controversy over its portrayal of Westcliffe estate in

:21:00.:21:05.

Grimsby. From the 3rd February, driving tests

:21:06.:21:12.

will be taken place at the Craven Park Training and Enterprise Centre.

:21:13.:21:15.

There is criticism of plans for a new Kew on the Humber that would

:21:16.:21:19.

stop the building of a new energy park. Ai'l UK has been granted

:21:20.:21:24.

permission to develop the line but the association of British ports has

:21:25.:21:27.

aplayed to build a quay on the site and the council say that would

:21:28.:21:30.

scupper the creation of thousands of jobs. Thanks to everyone who got in

:21:31.:21:33.

touch about the worries about fracking and the industry from a

:21:34.:21:37.

leading engineer we talked to last night. Hundreds of gas exploration

:21:38.:21:40.

licences are already in place already in Yorkshire and

:21:41.:21:43.

Lincolnshire, Mike Hill worked on the fracking rig which caused a

:21:44.:21:47.

minor earthquake in Blackpool. He says that although underground

:21:48.:21:50.

monitoring would take place there, there are other dangers, including

:21:51.:21:53.

to the water supply. We were talking to Mike last night on the programme.

:21:54.:21:56.

After that, again, second time we talked about fracking in a couple of

:21:57.:22:01.

weeks, a big response, just a few. Simon says: It's all well and good

:22:02.:22:03.

giving councils extra money: Thank you very much indeed for all

:22:04.:22:39.

of those. Hull Kingston Rovers say they are

:22:40.:22:42.

hoping for a big crowd for their gym against Hull FC this weekend. The

:22:43.:22:47.

club's new stand will be open for Sunday's derby which will act as

:22:48.:22:50.

preparation for the Super League season which starts next month.

:22:51.:22:56.

Any game is Rugby League is anything but a friendly, I suppose. Being

:22:57.:23:02.

Hull FC, adds a little bit of spice, I suppose but we are going to use

:23:03.:23:05.

all 28 players from our young ones to our eldest, they will all be

:23:06.:23:09.

given a chance to show what they've got. The East Yorkshire`based tennis

:23:10.:23:13.

player, Kyle Edmund has been named in the Great Britain Davis Cup squad

:23:14.:23:17.

which will face the United States later this month. The teenager from

:23:18.:23:21.

Tickton near Beverly has been brought into the squad ahead of the

:23:22.:23:25.

British number two, Dan Evans, in spite of being ranked more than 200

:23:26.:23:29.

places below him. Selectors say he has more experience of playing on

:23:30.:23:32.

the clay. Well done to Kyle.

:23:33.:23:36.

After their game at Braintree on Saturday, was postponed because of a

:23:37.:23:41.

water`logged pitch. Lincoln City play at Macclesfield tonight. BBC

:23:42.:23:44.

Radio Lincolnshire has commentary of the game. The build`up starts from

:23:45.:23:49.

7.00pm. By the way, BBC Sport relief is only

:23:50.:23:53.

two months away. We are all being encouraged to take part. This year's

:23:54.:23:57.

event will feature, cycling, running and swimming as a way of raising

:23:58.:24:01.

money for good causes in this country and overseas. If you want it

:24:02.:24:05.

get involved in Sport Relief this year, you can find out what is

:24:06.:24:08.

happening by going to the website and looking there. The address is on

:24:09.:24:14.

the screen: Now nature lovers in North Lincolnshire have been

:24:15.:24:16.

attracted to the grounds of a stately home in the area by a rare

:24:17.:24:21.

sight. Normanby Hall's herd of deer are already popular, of course, but

:24:22.:24:27.

it's two unusual members of the group that have been bringing in the

:24:28.:24:31.

extra visitors. Among friends near Scunthorpe, but

:24:32.:24:35.

noticeably different to his fellow fallow deer. This is a rare glimpse

:24:36.:24:41.

of the two white deer that now call Normanby Hall country park their

:24:42.:24:43.

home. They are just one end of the range

:24:44.:24:49.

of fallow deer. You get the fallow deer, traditional and brown with the

:24:50.:24:54.

white spots, right through to the pale ones which look almost white

:24:55.:24:58.

which is what we have got and then they go through to the dark, almost

:24:59.:25:01.

black colour. They pop in other places, I konted say how many as a

:25:02.:25:05.

percentage but not too common. The first white deer was born here five

:25:06.:25:10.

years ago, the youngest is now 18 months old. It is possible that the

:25:11.:25:15.

first white deer to appear here may have been purely down to genetics

:25:16.:25:20.

due to two brown deer. But it is also known that there was a white

:25:21.:25:24.

male deer living on community woodland adjacent to the park. It is

:25:25.:25:27.

possible that he found his way in here and then made his escape. They

:25:28.:25:33.

are sometimes referred to as Judas deer because they can make their

:25:34.:25:36.

fell yes herd easier to spot by hunters. Although, being such emit I

:25:37.:25:40.

had animals, visitors have little chance it getting up close. I have

:25:41.:25:44.

not seen the white deer but there are quite a few deer around, so I

:25:45.:25:50.

have quite enjoyed watching them. We are going to go and have a look it

:25:51.:25:53.

see if we can see them. I think they might be down near the pond. A load

:25:54.:25:59.

of food can help but there is no special treatment from Wendy on her

:26:00.:26:04.

daily rounds be they white deer, red deer or fallow deer. We are not too

:26:05.:26:09.

fussed about the colour, as long as they are healthy.

:26:10.:26:15.

Now, the time is 6.55pm. The main headlines tonight: New claims that

:26:16.:26:21.

you thousands of prisoners were scarf starved, beaten and executed

:26:22.:26:26.

by Government forces in Syria and Lincolnshire police's Commissioner

:26:27.:26:28.

defends the falling crime rate, while other forces are accused of

:26:29.:26:34.

putting targets first It's the targets that dis`Stott the figures.

:26:35.:26:37.

The police, with the best will in the world, they are trying to meet

the tafrgts, not record the crime. Bernard general tin on the programme

:26:41.:26:44.

tonight. Wednesday whether. Cloudy and cold with outbreaks of rain in

:26:45.:26:47.

the morning, dry and brighter in the afternoon. Top temperatures at best,

:26:48.:26:53.

around 7. 7 is 45 Fahrenheit. The response on the subject of skriem

:26:54.:26:56.

figures. Thank you for all the messages. A big response. Sarah has

:26:57.:27:00.

tweeted ` why should crime figures matter? Surely for the important

:27:01.:27:05.

thing is for the police to do their jobs successfully and deal with the

:27:06.:27:08.

indents. Bob says ` people don't bother about reporting crime.

:27:09.:27:11.

Nothing gets done. I have seen unreported crimes with no response

:27:12.:27:14.

from the police. I don't bother any more. Less says ` it is how safe we

:27:15.:27:19.

feel, not what the figures might pour tra. At the moment there is

:27:20.:27:22.

probably too much fear and we need the police to make us feel safer.

:27:23.:27:25.

This is an interesting one, anonymous. : I recently retired as a

:27:26.:27:30.

police sergeant. For balance, I would point out that often I had to

:27:31.:27:34.

educate officers who had recorded a crime when the circumstances did not

:27:35.:27:39.

amount to a crime in law. Interesting. Join me tomorrow lunch

:27:40.:27:47.

time as usual. Good evening. See you tomorrow, take care. Good night.
