:00:57.:01:06.

Good evening. The minister in charge of developing Britain's cities has

:01:07.:01:12.

told BBC Look North that Hull is really motoring despite a new report

:01:13.:01:16.

which shows the city is being left behind in the economic recovery. The

:01:17.:01:20.

report from Centre for Cities says Hull has missed out on investment

:01:21.:01:27.

and growth in recent years. But the Government Minister Greg Clark says

:01:28.:01:30.

jobs and opportunities are being created. In a moment, we'll be

:01:31.:01:33.

hearing from Mr Clark, but first, our Business Correspondent Paul

:01:34.:01:36.

Murphy has been looking at the report.

:01:37.:01:42.

What does it say? Peter, today's report claims many

:01:43.:01:45.

northern cities are being left behind in the UK recovery. That for

:01:46.:01:48.

every one public sector job created in London, two are lost in other

:01:49.:01:52.

parts of the country. That the average weekly wage in Hull is

:01:53.:01:56.

nearly half of what it is in London. The Centre for Cities believes it's

:01:57.:01:58.

time governments started giving greater priority to the North.

:01:59.:02:12.

Give cities more powers and responsibilities so they can affect

:02:13.:02:16.

their places more, give them more control over services and budgets so

:02:17.:02:20.

they can spend on the things that matter to them and their people. In

:02:21.:02:23.

some ways, give them some of the powers that we see London has had

:02:24.:02:27.

for the last decade or so. There are some positives though. The report

:02:28.:02:31.

says Grimsby has some of the highest number of start`up businesses in the

:02:32.:02:35.

UK. I've been to see one of them. This is an unusual start`up

:02:36.:02:37.

business. But it is a success. He teaches a forum of street gymnastics

:02:38.:02:52.

cold parkour. I wanted to find something that I wanted to do. You

:02:53.:02:57.

have to find something engaging to do if you are working. Why is

:02:58.:03:01.

Grimsby a hotbed of new business? In the town, they claim the business

:03:02.:03:08.

support network is second to none. I think the difference we have had is

:03:09.:03:13.

that if you are sitting at home in Grimsby, wanting to start a

:03:14.:03:16.

business, all you have to do is pick up a phone and you will get a

:03:17.:03:21.

meeting with someone who will encourage you and ease you through

:03:22.:03:24.

some of the challenges of starting a business. The report's overview of

:03:25.:03:31.

the local economy is mixed. But some believe we are turning the corner.

:03:32.:03:36.

We are waiting for some big investments to come along. Things

:03:37.:03:45.

are going in the right direction. The regional growth fund is one way

:03:46.:03:58.

that companies like this one in Hull are trying to compete with the rest

:03:59.:04:03.

of the country. These are desirable fashion accessories. People look at

:04:04.:04:09.

manufacturers that can do that kind of leather goods. They want quality,

:04:10.:04:17.

handmade leather goods. It is only a few weeks since the government to's

:04:18.:04:22.

city deal gave more power and influence to the region, but

:04:23.:04:27.

today's report says more must be done.

:04:28.:04:36.

I've been talking to the Minister for Cities, Greg Clark, and asked

:04:37.:04:40.

him why Hull is missing out on growth and investment? It isn't. In

:04:41.:04:54.

the most recent figures for the last year, the fall in unemployment in

:04:55.:04:58.

Hull is one of the biggest in the country. Actually rivalling London.

:04:59.:05:01.

I got the impression that Hull has got momentum behind it. I got the

:05:02.:05:04.

impression that we need 16,500 jobs just for the city to get to the

:05:05.:05:08.

national average of employment. Don't get me wrong, Hull as well as

:05:09.:05:12.

some of the other cities across the country have started some way back

:05:13.:05:15.

for many decades now and we are doing everything we can to drive

:05:16.:05:19.

that forward. Last time I was in Hull just before Christmas, I signed

:05:20.:05:23.

a city deal to invest in skills to make sure that the jobs being

:05:24.:05:26.

created will be filled by people locally. But for every public sector

:05:27.:05:30.

job created in London, two are lost in Hull. We don't want to be bottom

:05:31.:05:33.

of the employment league tables. Hull is not bottom of the employment

:05:34.:05:36.

league table. The most recent figures show that Hull is really

:05:37.:05:40.

motoring when it comes to job creation. There's a big reduction in

:05:41.:05:44.

unemployment in Hull. Why doesn't it feel like that? Why will people be

:05:45.:05:49.

shouting at the telly as they watch you say that? Everyone knows that

:05:50.:05:53.

Hull, for many years now, has had and has been behind other places in

:05:54.:05:56.

the country. But equally, I know from my frequent visits to the city

:05:57.:06:00.

over recent years that there is a sense of greater optimism. Jobs are

:06:01.:06:10.

being created, we have seen that. They also talk in this report about

:06:11.:06:15.

the brain drain. If you are a young graduate, you leave Hull University,

:06:16.:06:18.

you can't get a job in this city, you go to London and that is why it

:06:19.:06:23.

is happening. It is not true that you can't get a job in the city. If

:06:24.:06:27.

you talk to some of the engineering businesses in the area, their order

:06:28.:06:30.

books are starting to fill and one of the reasons that the City Deal

:06:31.:06:34.

was about investing in skills is to ensure that as people get jobs,

:06:35.:06:38.

other people come in behind them that have the skills that are needed

:06:39.:06:41.

to take up the opportunities that they are. `` that are there. It is

:06:42.:06:53.

important to invest for the future and this City Deal that was agreed

:06:54.:06:56.

following proposals made by leaders, not just in Hull, but across the

:06:57.:06:59.

Humber, from councils and businesses from both sides of the Humber,

:07:00.:07:03.

saying this is what is needed. The government backed that.

:07:04.:07:13.

Thank you. The ministers saying that whole is motoring, and that you can

:07:14.:07:26.

get a job here. `` Hull. We'd like to hear your views on this story.

:07:27.:07:30.

What's your experience of Hull's economy? Is it on the up, as the

:07:31.:07:34.

Minister says, or are jobs and new businesses hard to come by?

:07:35.:07:42.

In a moment. Why hospitals hope that letting patients rate their doctor

:07:43.:07:51.

will improve care. The Red Arrows have cut back on the

:07:52.:07:55.

number of displays they perform to try and ease pressure on the team

:07:56.:07:59.

following the death of one of its pilots. Flight Lieutenant Sean

:08:00.:08:02.

Cunningham was killed when his ejection seat went off as his

:08:03.:08:05.

aircraft was on the ground at RAF Scampton two years ago. Today at an

:08:06.:08:09.

inquest into his death, the Ministry of Defence outlined what lessons

:08:10.:08:11.

have been learnt. Caroline Bilton reports.

:08:12.:08:17.

This was the man who came to speak on behalf of the MOD. He would set

:08:18.:08:22.

out just what had changed at RAF Scampton following the death of

:08:23.:08:25.

Flight Lieutenant Sean Cunningham two years ago. The inquest here at

:08:26.:08:28.

Lincoln's Cathedral Centre has over the last three weeks heard criticism

:08:29.:08:31.

of how the team operates, how staffing was worringly low, training

:08:32.:08:37.

was poor and timetables tight. The MOD says it has addressed all of

:08:38.:08:41.

the 59 recommendations made in the official service inquiry. Staffing

:08:42.:08:46.

has changed. Red Arrows displays have reduced by 20% in an effort to

:08:47.:08:49.

reduce pressure on the team. Engineering manpower has increased

:08:50.:08:52.

by 25% after it was found the squadron was understaffed by 40

:08:53.:08:56.

people. Five new training courses have been introduced and the seat

:08:57.:08:59.

firing handle on the ejection seat has been redesigned, as has the

:09:00.:09:02.

crucial nut and bolt that prevented Sean's parachute from deploying.

:09:03.:09:05.

They are currently undergoing trials. Sean Cunningham's family say

:09:06.:09:17.

they want to make sure the safety of other servicemen and women is

:09:18.:09:21.

protected in the future. It's hoped today's recommendations will go some

:09:22.:09:27.

way to achieving that. The coroner has now heard all the evidence in

:09:28.:09:30.

this case. He will now spend the next two days going through all of

:09:31.:09:34.

that and he says he expects to be able to conclude earlier than first

:09:35.:09:38.

thought. We are expecting this inquest to end this Wednesday.

:09:39.:09:45.

Humberside Police have launched a murder investigation after the death

:09:46.:09:49.

of a man from multiple stab wounds in Hull. 51`year`old Keith John

:09:50.:09:53.

Opray was found dead at his home on Wareham Close in Bransholme on

:09:54.:09:56.

Saturday. Officers are now appealing for anyone who may have seen him in

:09:57.:10:01.

the days leading up to his death. A 44`year`old man has been arrested

:10:02.:10:06.

and released on bail. A teenager has admitted stabbing his

:10:07.:10:09.

grandparents in their bed while he was high on methadrone. The jury at

:10:10.:10:16.

Hull crown court heard that Irene Dale died in the attack last April.

:10:17.:10:19.

17`year`old Luke Dale denies murder and attempted murder. The case

:10:20.:10:28.

continues. Police say they need help

:10:29.:10:31.

identifying a man who says he does not know who he is. He may have lost

:10:32.:10:37.

his memory because of some sort of traumatic experience. He gave his

:10:38.:10:46.

name as Tony Thorpe. The Football Association says it

:10:47.:10:48.

will read the referee's report before taking any action against a

:10:49.:10:51.

Goole Town player who confronted fans after being sent off. The club

:10:52.:10:55.

already sacked captain Karl Colley after he stormed into the stands and

:10:56.:10:59.

swung a punch at hecklers. Manager David Holdsworth has also left the

:11:00.:11:02.

club to be replaced by Curtis Woodhouse, as Crispin Rolfe reports.

:11:03.:11:10.

Sacked for losing his head. The moment Goole AFC captain Karl Colley

:11:11.:11:13.

confronted a heckler, seconds after being sent off against Coalville.

:11:14.:11:24.

The man restraining him is now the new manager after David Holdsworth

:11:25.:11:29.

left the club. Curtis Woodhouse has been a professional boxer in his

:11:30.:11:32.

time but won't want any more fisticuffs when the two teams meet

:11:33.:11:36.

again in Coalville in less than a week.

:11:37.:11:38.

He was being taunted, but having said that, that is no excuse. It is

:11:39.:11:42.

part and parcel of the game. You are going to get abuse from fans, home

:11:43.:11:46.

and away, he should just have walked straight down the tunnel out of the

:11:47.:11:48.

way. Today, the Football Association

:11:49.:11:59.

said... Goole lost this game 3`0. They will

:12:00.:12:03.

hope their former captain's actions will not lose them more than a poor

:12:04.:12:14.

score line. Hospital patients in East Yorkshire

:12:15.:12:17.

are being asked to rate their doctor's performance in the hope

:12:18.:12:20.

that it will highlight areas for improvement. Last month, 3,500

:12:21.:12:22.

people gave feedback on their experience and hospital managers say

:12:23.:12:25.

the ratings are already showing results. More from our health

:12:26.:12:31.

correspondent Vicky Johnson. When booking a hotel, many of us

:12:32.:12:36.

will go online to see how it rates. Now patients are able to do the same

:12:37.:12:40.

about hospitals and doctors. It's a survey...

:12:41.:12:43.

Last month, 3500 patients completed these short questionnaires at Hull

:12:44.:12:50.

and East Yorkshire's hospitals. Feedback forms in general are only

:12:51.:12:53.

going to give some sort of advice to this hospital how they could treat

:12:54.:12:57.

people better. It gives them some idea on how long you have waited.

:12:58.:13:04.

Every day, Rachel Pearce sifts through scores of patient feedback

:13:05.:13:07.

forms and online comments, most are positive, but it is the negative

:13:08.:13:15.

ones which prompt change. One of the things patients were negatively

:13:16.:13:17.

putting on feedback forms was that they never see Ward sisters. Ward

:13:18.:13:22.

sisters now have their own clinics where patients can speak to them

:13:23.:13:27.

along with their relatives. For surgeons like this man, the

:13:28.:13:30.

extension of the feedback scheme will have real benefits for patients

:13:31.:13:34.

and their doctors. I think patients will be able to

:13:35.:13:38.

choose the doctor that most matches their needs. Also, those doctors

:13:39.:13:41.

that are consistently not very good, the whole point is that they need to

:13:42.:13:49.

have evidence for that. Human nature says that we all think we are above

:13:50.:13:53.

average at what we do but we're not. Some of us are good and some of us

:13:54.:13:58.

are not very good. I think this will raise standards.

:13:59.:14:00.

The vast majority of patients do leave positive comments about their

:14:01.:14:04.

hospital experiences. It is hoped by broadening this scheme and

:14:05.:14:07.

encouraging more to take part, it will help drive up standards even

:14:08.:14:10.

further. Patients here have already shown they like leaving the

:14:11.:14:15.

feedback. More than 30,000 of them have done so in the last year. It is

:14:16.:14:19.

hoped that more can be persuaded to give their opinions on those who

:14:20.:14:33.

treat and care for them. Thank you for watching. Still

:14:34.:14:42.

ahead. I am here to see in Scunthorpe United can beat third

:14:43.:14:54.

place Fleetwood town. And the celebrity dancers who swapped their

:14:55.:14:56.

sequins for overalls to support a BBC charity.

:14:57.:15:01.

Some pictures are just coming in. It is turning colder.

:15:02.:15:23.

Did you have a nice weekend? Did you manage to get to bingo?

:15:24.:15:35.

Why don't you just read the weather forecast?

:15:36.:15:37.

You should try it, you would like it.

:15:38.:15:42.

It looks and unsettled and changeable week, dominated by low

:15:43.:15:53.

pressure. A cold snap on Wednesday night. We have not had too bad an

:15:54.:16:07.

afternoon. Some showers this morning, but most of us have been

:16:08.:16:11.

break this afternoon. But the scattered showers will return from

:16:12.:16:13.

the Southwest this evening and overnight. Some further west might

:16:14.:16:22.

be on the short side. Perhaps a bit of heel. `` Sharp said, and perhaps

:16:23.:16:29.

a bit of hahil. It is a breezy and unsettled day

:16:30.:16:48.

tomorrow. Rather cloudy at times. Bands of showers pushing in from

:16:49.:16:53.

their Southwest. The further west you go, the more frequent and heavy

:16:54.:17:01.

doors showers will be. Those temperatures, feeling quite chilly

:17:02.:17:10.

and fresh long the coast. Highs of 6`7 degrees. Wednesday looks quite

:17:11.:17:16.

wet at first. Thursday, a little bit colder. On Friday, brighter at

:17:17.:17:26.

first, but clouding over later. From Mike. Has Paul shaved his

:17:27.:17:42.

eyebrows? Actually, the same thing. They are falling out like the rest

:17:43.:17:45.

of their here. It could be the strain of working

:17:46.:17:49.

with me. See you tomorrow.

:17:50.:17:56.

A meeting is taking place in Lincoln around now to decide whether to

:17:57.:18:01.

spend an extra ?80,000 to continue work on one of the city's historic

:18:02.:18:04.

landmarks. The Newport Arch dates back to the third century and has

:18:05.:18:08.

already received a ?60,000 Heritage grant for repairs. But structural

:18:09.:18:10.

engineers have discovered that more work is needed to allow traffic to

:18:11.:18:14.

continue driving through it. Jessica Lane reports.

:18:15.:18:20.

The only Roman arch in England which still has traffic driving through.

:18:21.:18:23.

But there are concerns that if an extra ?80,000 isn't found, the arch

:18:24.:18:26.

could eventually become unsafe and the traffic stopped, causing major

:18:27.:18:32.

problems for local businesses. People don't stop immediately, but

:18:33.:18:35.

they do see things in shop windows and are then liable to come back

:18:36.:18:39.

another day. If we have got no traffic, we have no customers. In

:18:40.:18:45.

the past, it has been disastrous for us. Takings have gone down

:18:46.:18:48.

tremendously. We had the road closed off for the water board once, and

:18:49.:18:56.

again for repaving the area. The Newport Arch has been standing

:18:57.:18:59.

since the third century and has been damaged by cold winters and general

:19:00.:19:03.

corrosion over the years. ?60,000 was awarded by English Heritage last

:19:04.:19:06.

year, but when that work started, more problems were found. Back in

:19:07.:19:12.

1964, this lorry crashed into the arch leaving the road closed for

:19:13.:19:16.

months. It's thought that was when cement based mortar was used on

:19:17.:19:19.

repairs. That now needs to be replaced with lime mortar. English

:19:20.:19:27.

Heritage said... The council leader agrees.

:19:28.:19:42.

It's not going to affect day`to`day spending on services. It is an

:19:43.:19:46.

essential repair which we must do and make sure we look after a hugely

:19:47.:19:49.

important part of Lincoln's landscape.

:19:50.:19:56.

The City of Lincoln Council says closing the road would be a last

:19:57.:20:00.

resort. It's discussing the money at a meeting this evening. If approved,

:20:01.:20:03.

they will work out a new timescale for the repairs to get this Roman

:20:04.:20:09.

arch right up to date. Thanks to everyone who contacted us

:20:10.:20:12.

after our report on how more than ?150,000 will be spent on

:20:13.:20:15.

translation services for foreign workers in Lincolnshire.

:20:16.:21:09.

There was a huge response to that. Hull City will travel to Brighton in

:21:10.:21:19.

the fifth round of the FA Cup ` their reward for beating Southend

:21:20.:21:24.

United. Tomorrow, the club is back in Premier League action at Crystal

:21:25.:21:28.

Palace. But the football action begins tonight as League Two leaders

:21:29.:21:30.

Scunthorpe United face third placed Fleetwood Town. Our sports reporter

:21:31.:21:33.

Simon Clark is there. Simon, what kind of form are Scunthorpe in ahead

:21:34.:21:41.

of this game? This is Russ Wilcox's 12 games in

:21:42.:21:53.

charge. Hull city and Scunthorpe United played in Essex on Saturday.

:21:54.:22:00.

Let's head to Dagenham to see how Scunthorpe got on.

:22:01.:22:06.

This was a match where two points slipped through the fingers. United

:22:07.:22:09.

stormed into a three goal lead at Dagenham. Dion Burton then made it

:22:10.:22:12.

two for the Iron before being injured. The evergreen Paul Hayes

:22:13.:22:20.

scored to make it 3`0. In ever worsening conditions, Dagenham

:22:21.:22:22.

fought back, scoring two in quick succession. Minutes from the end,

:22:23.:22:34.

players retired due to a fierce storm. Back on they came and Luke

:22:35.:22:38.

Norris clinched a draw close to the end leaving the table very tight and

:22:39.:22:41.

United in need of another win today. Down the road, Hull City were making

:22:42.:22:45.

light work of heavy conditions at Southend United. After surviving a

:22:46.:22:49.

couple of scares, Matty Friars opened the scoring. The striker

:22:50.:22:53.

showed he was back in business with another at the death. City now face

:22:54.:23:00.

Brighton and Hove in round five. We are in the last 16, it gives us a

:23:01.:23:04.

chance to progress to the quarterfinal. That would be terrific

:23:05.:23:12.

if we could get there. We will approach it in the same way as we

:23:13.:23:16.

have the other cup ties. Tomorrow, the Tigers go to Crystal

:23:17.:23:20.

Palace with new boy Shane Long in to make his debut.

:23:21.:23:23.

It is a team that comes up every year and you think they will do

:23:24.:23:31.

well. They started the season well. The future is bright and I am

:23:32.:23:35.

looking forward to playing and training. Back at Langford Park, the

get a job. It was also a chance to put the students' handiwork through

:25:19.:25:30.

its paces. And the reward... I got my hands dirty and I loved it. It is

:25:31.:25:37.
