things will get colder and sweet, find out more on

:00:00.:00:00.

Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:00.:00:00.

The headlines tonight. Lincolnshire County Council is told

:00:07.:00:09.

to spend less on translation services despite its rising migrant

:00:10.:00:19.

population. We are spending this money on a time when they are

:00:20.:00:23.

cutting front line services and staff. The premature twins from

:00:24.:00:27.

Grimsby saved by a hospital ward on wheels. The toasts for Burns Night

:00:28.:00:31.

that require help from down south. The agricultural self portraits

:00:32.:00:43.

making farmers famous. And unsettled weekend on the way.

:00:44.:00:51.

The latest in 15 minutes. The man in charge of local

:00:52.:00:54.

authorities says councils should stop wasting money on translating

:00:55.:00:57.

documents and leaflets into foreign languages. The Communities Secretary

:00:58.:01:03.

` Eric Pickles ` says people should be encouraged to learn English

:01:04.:01:08.

instead. More than ?150 thousand will be spent on translation

:01:09.:01:12.

services in Lincolnshire this year. But the County Council says it can't

:01:13.:01:16.

reduce that cost because of the growing migrant population. More

:01:17.:01:18.

from our Political Editor Tim Iredale.

:01:19.:01:28.

English is not the first line which for many residents living in Boston.

:01:29.:01:33.

Recent years have seen thousands of people arrive from Eastern Europe.

:01:34.:01:39.

This man teaches English to migrants from Lithuania. She says most people

:01:40.:01:43.

want to learn, but sometimes they need help. More and more people come

:01:44.:01:52.

to the UK, and they need some support, and it's very important.

:01:53.:02:04.

Especially in hospitals, and emergency matters. When children

:02:05.:02:08.

come to school and they don't know where word. Eric Pickles has accused

:02:09.:02:14.

councils of wasting money on translating leaflets and documents

:02:15.:02:18.

into foreign languages. He says migrants should be encouraged to

:02:19.:02:22.

speak English. It's not just councils which are trying to

:02:23.:02:27.

overcome the language barrier. The NHS, police and courts are all

:02:28.:02:31.

having to cope with the substantial cost of translation. We are spending

:02:32.:02:37.

this money whilst we are cutting front line services and staff. We

:02:38.:02:42.

are spending money on translation services ` is just wrong. The

:02:43.:02:48.

government estimates the cost... Cost of translation is ?140 million

:02:49.:02:54.

a year. Local authorities spend ?20 billion annually.

:02:55.:03:02.

The government says you should be cutting the cost of translation. Is

:03:03.:03:08.

that possible? We are lean and mean as it is. We look to every area to

:03:09.:03:13.

make savings, but there are some areas, particularly in children's

:03:14.:03:19.

social care, where we need to make sure that people are understanding

:03:20.:03:23.

what's happening. The courts insist that we provide an interpreter, and

:03:24.:03:29.

have to translate documents. There is no negotiation on that. With town

:03:30.:03:36.

hall budgets under pressure, the cost of providing translation

:03:37.:03:39.

services has become another battle in the war of words between council

:03:40.:03:44.

chiefs and the government. Rita Chadha is the director of the

:03:45.:03:47.

Refugee and Migrant Forum for East London. I spoke to her earlier and

:03:48.:03:52.

started by asking if the money spent on translation services was money

:03:53.:04:00.

well spent. Absolutely. Do not invest in translation is a false

:04:01.:04:04.

economy. It's vital to make sure that our communities function

:04:05.:04:13.

properly. How can we justify it? We have to, because its peoples lives

:04:14.:04:17.

at stake. They need translation services at police stations, in

:04:18.:04:24.

social services, with the NHS. But people watching would say that if

:04:25.:04:27.

they choose to come to this country it should be their responsibility `

:04:28.:04:33.

not taxpayers. We do have rules coming in from outside the EU.

:04:34.:04:38.

People do have to have a level of English before they gain entry.

:04:39.:04:42.

Inflation services will probably diminish in the future, but we're

:04:43.:04:47.

not there yet. Eric Pickles once less spent on this. Is this a

:04:48.:04:51.

sensible move, or is it making it harder for migrants to integrate?

:04:52.:04:56.

The arguments that if you take away translation, evil but all of them

:04:57.:05:04.

are automatically speak English `` will automatically speak English is

:05:05.:05:12.

a false economy. If the translation is not there, it will force people

:05:13.:05:17.

to learn quicker, won't it? Not necessarily. It might cause them to

:05:18.:05:24.

become even more insular. Is it right that these services are

:05:25.:05:28.

funded, when other services by local councils are being cut? All services

:05:29.:05:34.

are under threat. That's a problem for local authorities across the

:05:35.:05:39.

country. The issue is due not invest in translation means that people

:05:40.:05:44.

could end up in a crisis situation. That result in them going back to a

:05:45.:05:47.

knee or social services time and time again. It's a economy. `` A

:05:48.:05:58.

or social services. Should councils have to cut the amount they spend on

:05:59.:06:02.

translating documents into foreign languages? Will doing so help people

:06:03.:06:07.

learn English? Or is it making it harder for communities to get access

:06:08.:06:11.

to services? And there will be more on the cost of translators on this

:06:12.:06:29.

weekend's Sunday Politics. That's at eleven o'clock on BBC One.

:06:30.:06:50.

In a moment on Look North: The parents of seriously ill twins from

:06:51.:06:53.

North East Lincolnshire have thanked the doctors and nurses that

:06:54.:06:55.

transferred their premature girls from hospital in Grimsby to a

:06:56.:07:00.

specialist unit in Sheffield. The Walden family said they couldn't

:07:01.:07:04.

have managed without the help of Embrace ` a Yorkshire charity `

:07:05.:07:07.

which moves seriously ill children hundreds of miles for treatment. The

:07:08.:07:10.

team uses mobile intensive care units on the road, in planes and

:07:11.:07:13.

helicopters. Crispin Rolfe reports. Twin babies with twin problems.

:07:14.:07:18.

Amelia and Arrianna were born ten weeks early at Grimsby's Diana,

:07:19.:07:22.

Princess of Wales Hospital. But within days Amelia ` incubator and

:07:23.:07:26.

all ` was being transferred to experts in Sheffield by a specialist

:07:27.:07:32.

child ambulance. The reason ` a blocked bowel preventing her from

:07:33.:07:42.

going to the loo. We didn't know anything, so my head was all over

:07:43.:07:47.

the place. I felt so upset. I couldn't do anything but cry. Her

:07:48.:07:53.

tummy was swollen, and she wasn't tolerating her feeds. But for mum

:07:54.:08:01.

and dad, almost instant relief in front of BBC cameras when medical

:08:02.:08:12.

tests removed the blockage. The diet appears to be on blocking her bowel.

:08:13.:08:19.

Worry over for Amelia, but not for her twin. She is now diagnosed with

:08:20.:08:28.

the same problem. The Yorkshire charity provided ambulance carried

:08:29.:08:29.

designed especially to protect vulnerable babies. This time, her

:08:30.:08:37.

problem requires surgery. It came as a shock when they said that it was

:08:38.:08:43.

more complicated this time. That's made it even worse. This time, days

:08:44.:08:49.

spent in Sheffield became months of operations. We did manage to join

:08:50.:08:57.

the twins together. Eight months on, and the twins are both home and

:08:58.:09:04.

healthy. The family prays doctors and ambulances for their care. I'm

:09:05.:09:14.

happy to see a happy ending. She is home and doing really well.

:09:15.:09:22.

And there will be more on the twins and their story on Children's

:09:23.:09:25.

Emergency Rescue on BBC Two on Tuesday night at eight.

:09:26.:09:32.

The inquest into the death of a red arrows pilot has heard that the

:09:33.:09:35.

ejection seat which went off while his plane was on the ground was 35

:09:36.:09:39.

years old. The man leading the military inquiry into the death of

:09:40.:09:42.

Flight Lieutenant Sean Cunningham was cross examined for a second day.

:09:43.:09:45.

Commander Daniel Stembridge told the inquest the seat had been in service

:09:46.:09:49.

since 1976 Railings have been put up alongside the River Hull in memory

:09:50.:09:52.

of a man who it's thought fell into the water and died. Staff from the

:09:53.:10:00.

Yorkshire Ambulance Service have announced they will hold two strikes

:10:01.:10:03.

next month. Members of the Unite Trade Union says proposed changes to

:10:04.:10:06.

paramedic shifts could see them going more than ten hours without a

:10:07.:10:10.

meal break. But ambulance managers believe the new rotas will improve

:10:11.:10:13.

the current rules and reduce shift over`runs.

:10:14.:10:15.

Some sports fans in Hull say having two stadiums in the city named after

:10:16.:10:38.

the same company will be confusing. Hull KR have renamed Craven Park as

:10:39.:10:45.

the KC Lightstream Stadium. The communications company already

:10:46.:10:47.

sponsors the city's other major arena ` the KC Stadium. Sarah Walton

:10:48.:10:52.

is in the city for us tonight ` there is already some confusion over

:10:53.:10:56.

this amongst fans? Well the name change is still

:10:57.:11:00.

sinking in. The sign here's still say Craven Park but it'll soon

:11:01.:11:05.

change. This is the new name ` Lightsream is a news superfast

:11:06.:11:08.

broadband being rolled out across Hull, and this brings new

:11:09.:11:11.

sponsorship to Hull KR But we are just about five miles away from

:11:12.:11:14.

where their biggest rivals, Hull FC play at The KC Stadium. So a little

:11:15.:11:18.

earlier I asked the chief executive if that might cause some confusion.

:11:19.:11:37.

I don't think the name matters. We are the east of the city, and the KC

:11:38.:11:42.

Stadium is that the west side. I don't think there is any clash. It's

:11:43.:11:50.

great that they've got the name on the East and on the West. Not an

:11:51.:11:58.

issue. The club was involved in helping to choose the new name. A

:11:59.:12:02.

lot of the street signs should be changed at some point. We've been

:12:03.:12:06.

out on the streets to ask people what they think.

:12:07.:12:17.

I'm with Rovers. What's the point of changing it, just who they can feel

:12:18.:12:22.

better about themselves? You get a bit confused and don't know where to

:12:23.:12:27.

go. It might cause a bit of opposition. Go for it. If it's going

:12:28.:12:34.

to create jobs, give people opportunities to take part in sports

:12:35.:12:42.

and achieve things. Go for it. It's interesting to note that the stadium

:12:43.:12:46.

has been connected to this superfast broadband it's been named after. Any

:12:47.:12:51.

houses over there can't get it ` because the area around the stadium

:12:52.:12:56.

hasn't been connected yet! They are working on a programme to roll it

:12:57.:12:59.

out to more part of the city. What do you think of this one? Will

:13:00.:13:03.

having two KC stadiums be confusing? Will you even call it by it's new

:13:04.:13:07.

name ` or will it always be Craven Park? Do you think the naming of

:13:08.:13:10.

historic stadiums should be up for sale at all?

:13:11.:13:21.

Well, there is rugby league commentary this weekend ` but at the

:13:22.:13:25.

city's other KC Stadium. Hull FC and Rovers meet in a

:13:26.:13:30.

pre`season friendly. Coverage starts at 1.30 on Sunday.

:13:31.:13:34.

And we'll be looking ahead to Hull City's FA Cup match later in the

:13:35.:13:38.

programme. Still ahead tonight: Why the Scots

:13:39.:13:42.

can't celebrate Burns night without a helping hand from this region. The

:13:43.:13:51.

farmers whose snapshots are making them internet stars.

:13:52.:14:00.

The river and the Stump in Boston now St Botolphs footbridge has been

:14:01.:14:04.

removed ready for the new bridge to go in.

:14:05.:14:18.

Cynthia asks if Peter will play bingo with me! I think he's a real

:14:19.:14:34.

dish. There were too warm fronts which

:14:35.:14:37.

came in from the West, which brought in some rain. Let's have a look at

:14:38.:14:48.

the weather. Tonight: Cloudy with rain spreading from the west.

:14:49.:14:51.

Minimum temperature 4C. Moderate southerly wind. Tomorrow: A grey,

:14:52.:14:53.

damp start, brightening up with sunny spells developing through the

:14:54.:14:56.

morning, but with scattered squally showers likely especially later.

:14:57.:14:58.

Maximum temperature 9C. Freshening southwest wind. Sunday: Bright

:14:59.:14:59.

start. Wind and rain later. Next high water time is in

:15:00.:15:46.

Bridlington at ten o'clock this evening. A slow start to Saturday,

:15:47.:15:51.

with mist and drizzle. It should brighten up through the morning,

:15:52.:15:55.

with sunny spells coming through. Through the afternoon, a risk of

:15:56.:16:00.

showers. They could be quite heavy, with hail and thunder. Top

:16:01.:16:06.

temperatures around nine. Let's look at those afternoon temperatures. A

:16:07.:16:12.

little above average for this time of year, but there will be a fresh

:16:13.:16:18.

wind. Those showers are clear by tomorrow evening. Sunday gets off to

:16:19.:16:22.

a dry start. Heavy rain and strong winds will sweep in from the morning

:16:23.:16:27.

will stop early next week, it is unsettled and quite showery. What

:16:28.:16:39.

about bingo with Cynthia? You won't get a warm fronts from her!

:16:40.:16:48.

Tomorrow, Scots from around the world will pay tribute to the

:16:49.:16:54.

national poet Robert Burns. Drinkers might like to toast farmers here,

:16:55.:17:00.

you are playing a major role in supplying the whiskey industry. Much

:17:01.:17:03.

of the malt whiskey distilled in Scotland that its life in the fields

:17:04.:17:16.

of east Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. Late summer, and the Lincolnshire

:17:17.:17:19.

harvest is almost over... But locally grown barley is into

:17:20.:17:23.

more than beer and animal feed, it's ending up here in Scottish

:17:24.:17:25.

Distilleries. Mark Ireland grows barley especially for malt whisky.

:17:26.:17:29.

The whiskey producers don't want nitrogen content in excess of

:17:30.:17:35.

1.65%. Anything for beer and lager can go up to 1.85%. We have

:17:36.:17:40.

segregated some of the Bali across the yard, so we know which Lott will

:17:41.:17:51.

go to which particular destination. `` segregated the Bali.

:17:52.:18:01.

Mark's farm near Sleaford is part of a co`operative that sends barley to

:18:02.:18:04.

Bridlington for malting. Only the best barley makes the grade to be

:18:05.:18:09.

malted here. Bali has characteristics which is the

:18:10.:18:23.

harvesters are looking for. Barley There's going to be a 20% increase

:18:24.:18:35.

in that requirement in the next five years here in the kiln, it's

:18:36.:18:39.

incredibly humid, as the moisture from the germinated Wali is cooked

:18:40.:18:59.

away. The Scottish whiskey production is

:19:00.:19:05.

so large that we must meet the demands for the barley one. It is an

:19:06.:19:21.

expanding markets. A 20% growth is expected in the next

:19:22.:19:25.

five years and it's a chance for farmers in East Yorkshire and

:19:26.:19:28.

Lincolnshire to turn this into this even if they have to wait a decade

:19:29.:19:32.

ot two to enjoy the fruits of their labours.

:19:33.:19:36.

Yesterday, we talked about schools in Hull and North Lincolnshire that

:19:37.:19:39.

were amongst the worst in the country according to new league

:19:40.:20:19.

tables. Big response on this one. The Essex club are led by Phil Brown

:20:20.:20:27.

who took Hull into the Premier League during the two years he was

:20:28.:20:30.

in charge at the KC Stadium. Our sports reporter Simon Clark has

:20:31.:20:34.

been looking at the impact he has had at his new club.

:20:35.:20:42.

He was a man who celebrated success. And manager who would publicly

:20:43.:20:45.

chastise his players. This was a man who could croon with the best of

:20:46.:20:56.

them. This is former Hull City manager Phil Brown. He is now the

:20:57.:21:02.

manager of Southend United, charged with plotting the downfall of the

:21:03.:21:08.

Tigers in the FA Cup fourth round. It's a different manager. He's the

:21:09.:21:16.

only player that is left here that I was with. It's completely different

:21:17.:21:23.

now. We are taking on the Premier League opposition, and we will

:21:24.:21:27.

hopefully put our best foot forward. He's a cult hero here at Hull.

:21:28.:21:33.

Ladies of a certain age swoon at his feet. Has that cold followed him

:21:34.:21:42.

here to Southend? `` has that cult followed him. This is how he finds

:21:43.:21:49.

the present`day Mr Brown. Hello and welcome to BBC News. He's brought

:21:50.:21:54.

players that like to hit the ball on the deck. The fans have engaged with

:21:55.:21:59.

him will stop Southend are playing very successfully. They are probably

:22:00.:22:07.

tied in the league to at the moment. People will be dubious at first, but

:22:08.:22:12.

they have really turned around. He seems to have had some very early

:22:13.:22:18.

this summer success. He certainly turned the team around. He really

:22:19.:22:23.

has. Will Phil Brown find a way to bridge the gap between East and

:22:24.:22:31.

Hull? Meanwhile, the Tigers have recalled

:22:32.:22:34.

Jack Hobbs from his season long loan at Nottingham Forest. The defender

:22:35.:22:37.

had been about to sign a permanent deal with the Championship club, but

:22:38.:22:41.

he's been brought back to Hull after an injury to James Chester. He's not

:22:42.:22:45.

available for the FA Cup match with Southend. And BBC Radio Humberside

:22:46.:22:48.

will have full commentary of that game on FM and online. Coverage

:22:49.:22:51.

starts in Saturday Sport from half past one.

:22:52.:22:53.

Scunthorpe's trip to Dagenham Redbridge will be on AM.

:22:54.:22:57.

Kick off is at three. And there's commentary of Grimsby Town's trip to

:22:58.:23:01.

Wrexham on digital and on the website. BBC Radio Lincolnshire will

:23:02.:23:04.

be at Lincoln City's home match with Woking. Coverage starts at two.

:23:05.:23:20.

. HMS Grimsby has docked this morning in its adopted town for the

:23:21.:23:24.

first time in two years. Senior officers say it's vital that the

:23:25.:23:27.

minesweeper maintains the links that it has made with the port. It will

:23:28.:23:31.

be open to the public during its visit. Grimsby in particular,

:23:32.:23:33.

because of the maritime connection, it really understands and welcomes

:23:34.:23:37.

the ship. Any time we are at home it's great, and Grimsby in

:23:38.:23:41.

particular understands the importance of maritime trade. And

:23:42.:23:46.

what's the Royal Navy means for the UK.

:23:47.:23:48.

It's a craze that's been sweeping the celebrity world ` famous people

:23:49.:23:51.

taking pictures of themselves on their mobile phone. Even the word

:23:52.:23:54.

selfie is now in the Oxford English Dictionary. But it's not just

:23:55.:24:00.

celebrities. Farmers in our area have been joining in. Phillip Norton

:24:01.:24:15.

explains. It's been touted as the greatest

:24:16.:24:20.

photographic trend of our time. Everyone from Barack Obama and David

:24:21.:24:27.

Cameron, to Pope Francis. All taking selfie is. It was the words of the

:24:28.:24:32.

year, last year. But selfie is so 2014. Or farmers, it's all about the

:24:33.:24:46.

felfie. It's just farmers showing themselves

:24:47.:24:52.

with their livestock. Chickens, pigs, cows. It has become really

:24:53.:25:01.

popular. Last year, use of the word was

:25:02.:25:07.

around 17%. It was only a matter of time before it evolved. This was the

:25:08.:25:11.

winner of the first farmer selfie competition. It makes you realise

:25:12.:25:18.

that there are people out there who are struggling, the same as you.

:25:19.:25:21.

Having a hard day, or once during up. Rachel admits that there is a

:25:22.:25:28.

degree of one`upmanship, as to what you get in the background. They are

:25:29.:25:36.

uniting the farming world. Quite a few where competing as to who could

:25:37.:25:39.

get photographs in front of the latest model of whatever will stop

:25:40.:25:42.

with the livestock people, it's just too can get the biggest case of

:25:43.:25:48.

their cow! Who would have thought that with the rise of mobile

:25:49.:25:53.

technology, new words with the invented, and farmers across

:25:54.:26:06.

Yorkshire would be united. I've just done my first selfie! It's

:26:07.:26:10.

not a pretty sight. Let's get a recap of the national

:26:11.:26:13.

and regional headlines The Conservatives claim take home pay

:26:14.:26:16.

has risen faster than inflation in the last year ` Labour accuse them

:26:17.:26:19.

of fiddling the figures. The Government has calls on Lincolnshire

:26:20.:26:22.

County Council to spend less on translation services despite its

:26:23.:26:26.

growing migrant population. Tomorrow: A grey, damp start,
