That's all from the BBC News at Six, so it's goodbye from me, and on BBC

:00:00.3:59:59

One we can goodbye from me. And on BBC One we

:00:00.:00:00.

can now join the BBC's news Good evening and welcome to BBC Look

:00:00.:00:07.

North. The headlines tonight: The Fire

:00:08.:00:10.

Union says planned cuts to the Humberside service will put lives at

:00:11.:00:17.

risk. Cuts have to be made somewhere or

:00:18.:00:21.

the Budget reduced. Do more exercise ` the call to couch

:00:22.:00:24.

potatoes costing taxpayers millions of pounds.

:00:25.:00:35.

I live in Boston ahead of the CDs of high tides. The Environment Agency

:00:36.:00:41.

is trying to reassure the public. The ?99 coat that's gone on sale in

:00:42.:00:46.

a local charity shop. After a wet and windy evening, there

:00:47.:00:52.

is a warning out for eyes. I will be back later in the programme. `` ice.

:00:53.:01:02.

Good evening. Firefighters say public safety is

:01:03.:01:05.

being put at risk by cuts to the Humberside Fire and Rescue Service.

:01:06.:01:08.

It's been announced today that more than 60 firefighter posts will be

:01:09.:01:12.

lost and the number of engines reduced. Some engines will be

:01:13.:01:15.

replaced by "Small Fires Units" but the Fire Brigades Union claim these

:01:16.:01:19.

are little more than a garden pressure washer on the back of a

:01:20.:01:24.

van. Tonight, the deputy chief fire officer has told BBC Look North the

:01:25.:01:30.

public are "absolutely not at risk". We'll hear from him. First, Tolu

:01:31.:01:35.

Adeoye reports. It took more than 20 firefighters to

:01:36.:01:38.

battle this substation fire near Cottingham in April last year. We've

:01:39.:02:01.

got sympathy with the authority. It is a different decision they have

:02:02.:02:05.

had to make. Central government have reduced spending and basically, it

:02:06.:02:12.

has ended up in this position where they have had to make some cuts. We

:02:13.:02:16.

are shocked as to how the act has fallen.

:02:17.:02:23.

Last year, Humberside Fire Authority outlined how it could save

:02:24.:02:25.

?2.5million from the budget. Today, after a public consultation, it

:02:26.:02:28.

revealed what would stay and what would go.

:02:29.:02:30.

There are currently 450 Humberside firefighters. That's being to

:02:31.:02:33.

reduced by more than 60, but none will be compulsory redundancies. The

:02:34.:02:37.

11 fire engines in Hull and Grimsby are being reduced by two to nine.

:02:38.:02:41.

And Grimsby's two fire stations will merge.

:02:42.:02:53.

Under these changes, both these fire stations will go and be replaced but

:02:54.:02:57.

smaller fire vehicles that can cope with minor incidents.

:02:58.:03:02.

These are the fire units that will replace the engines. There was

:03:03.:03:04.

concern today from villagers in Waltham about the changes. I am

:03:05.:03:13.

gutted, really. They do do a lot in the village. In the event of a house

:03:14.:03:18.

fire, you will have to wait longer for the service, I think it is

:03:19.:03:23.

wrong. It should stay the way it is. The Fire Service says it has no

:03:24.:03:27.

choice but to make the savings and that these were the best options.

:03:28.:03:31.

But that's not the end of the cuts. A further ?3 million will still need

:03:32.:03:37.

to be saved by April 2016. I spoke to Dean Sanders, the deputy

:03:38.:03:40.

chief fire officer at Humberside Fire and Rescue. He is due to step

:03:41.:03:46.

into the job as chief soon. I asked him if the cuts were really

:03:47.:03:54.

necessary. It is entirely down to the cuts in

:03:55.:03:57.

Aber funding, Peter. We were looking to save ?5.7 million by 2016 and

:03:58.:04:07.

2017. Much of that budget is Sally, that is where we act. Why cut at

:04:08.:04:12.

Hull and Grimsby were the biggest populations are and then keep

:04:13.:04:18.

another two options open instead? The authority has decided that the

:04:19.:04:24.

cuts that we can bear are better off in hull`mac and Grimsby. `` hull.

:04:25.:04:34.

Some people say these small five units are not sufficient. They will

:04:35.:04:42.

only attend house fires were necessary. We will still send two or

:04:43.:04:48.

three fire engines as normal. But every fire engine will have less

:04:49.:04:51.

people on them, five of four people. How can you justify that? We

:04:52.:04:57.

maintain that we need nine people at a house fire. But per fire engine

:04:58.:05:03.

you are making a reduction. Have you been overstaffed and asked

:05:04.:05:10.

them? This time we will take the pumps in the vehicles. As safety

:05:11.:05:15.

being put at risk because you have to save the money? Absolutely not.

:05:16.:05:20.

We are committed to saving committees and firefighters. It does

:05:21.:05:25.

not sound like it if you are reducing the number of people on

:05:26.:05:30.

board. In all there are more able on board our five Asians than in other

:05:31.:05:35.

similar sized cities. What reassuring seas can you give to

:05:36.:05:38.

people in Waltham or Cleethorpes who are losing their full`sized fire

:05:39.:05:44.

engines? The fire cover will come from Grimsby because that is the

:05:45.:05:48.

quickest response. We are giving them an extra facility in terms of

:05:49.:05:52.

medical and road accident response by tailoring these small fire units.

:05:53.:05:57.

But they are losing a fire engine. We are using an on call fire engine.

:05:58.:06:03.

That is correct, but we're changing it to a different type of fire

:06:04.:06:06.

vehicle that will be more suited to the rest. If you did not have to

:06:07.:06:10.

make the savings, would you be doing any of this? It is fair to say that

:06:11.:06:15.

we would like to keep the service as it is at the moment but the cuts

:06:16.:06:18.

from central government do not make this possible. Thank you, Dean

:06:19.:06:23.

Sanders. Are the Fiire Service making the

:06:24.:06:27.

cuts in the right way? Do you think small fires vehicles will fill gaps

:06:28.:06:36.

in the service? The number of firefighters per engine in Hull

:06:37.:06:44.

alone will be reduced. Contact us. In a moment: The new device which

:06:45.:06:50.

zaps migrains away and could replace painkillers.

:06:51.:07:01.

A massive land and sea search has taken place looking for a man who

:07:02.:07:04.

went missing on a fishing trip. He failed to return home last night.

:07:05.:07:09.

Has two dogs and rucksack were found on cliffs in Scarborough.

:07:10.:07:14.

The search for Nigel Savage began at first light. His wife reported him

:07:15.:07:18.

missing to Humberside Police when he read it and `` fields to return from

:07:19.:07:24.

his fishing expedition. The search has been concentrated along the

:07:25.:07:30.

Scotsman. They have found his car and his two springer spaniel 's and

:07:31.:07:34.

fishing equipment but no fat `` so far no trace of him. The area is

:07:35.:07:39.

being extensively searched by all areas. We have wrapped it up for

:07:40.:07:44.

this afternoon and all any further information can come forward.

:07:45.:07:48.

Mountain rescue teams have joined the coastguard in the search for Mr

:07:49.:07:52.

Savage and there was drama this afternoon when one of their own men

:07:53.:07:58.

had winched off the beach. DVLA dislocated has shoulder and had to

:07:59.:08:02.

be rescued. The lease will make a decision something tomorrow as to

:08:03.:08:14.

whether to resume their search. A former senior detective who worked

:08:15.:08:17.

on some of the region's most high`profile cases has been charged

:08:18.:08:20.

with a number of alleged offences including stalking and rape.

:08:21.:08:22.

57`year`old Colin Andrews was a chief superintendent at Humberside

:08:23.:08:25.

Police until his retirement. He's still employed as their business

:08:26.:08:26.

manager. People who don't exercise enough are

:08:27.:08:29.

costing taxpayers millions of pounds a year. It's the claim of

:08:30.:08:33.

researchers who say Hull has among the highest level of inactive people

:08:34.:08:36.

in the UK. They say it's putting a burden on the NHS and leading to

:08:37.:08:40.

hundreds of premature deaths. They're calling for local councils

:08:41.:08:43.

to do more to ensure people keep fit. Leanne Brown reports.

:08:44.:08:59.

Launched today ` this outdoor gym is the latest way to get people moving.

:09:00.:09:08.

I think there is a cultural problem, one of the things we must do with

:09:09.:09:12.

our children is to get out and take exercise and it does not have to be

:09:13.:09:16.

formal. It does not mean joining a gym. It can be as simple as getting

:09:17.:09:21.

children walking and going into a park. If facilities like this are

:09:22.:09:24.

free and available that helps. Vicky who works in a chip shop

:09:25.:09:28.

nearby ` has been stugling with her weight and welcomes the new

:09:29.:09:33.

facility. Since I have stopped playing rugby, I have put a lot of

:09:34.:09:38.

weight on. People get caught up in their day`to`day life. It is

:09:39.:09:41.

difficult, especially with the cost of things today. People cannot

:09:42.:09:46.

afford to join a gym so that is why the likes of the parks are a good

:09:47.:09:49.

idea. And the legal `` in the league table

:09:50.:09:57.

of deaths linked to an activity, Hull is the second worst. `` sects

:09:58.:10:08.

worst. It is costing the taxpayer in Hall ?23 million a. There are a

:10:09.:10:13.

number of rich factors associated with an activity. Things like

:10:14.:10:18.

increased blood pressure, increased risk of diabetes in later life.

:10:19.:10:24.

Weight gain can be an issue as well. If one knows they must do more

:10:25.:10:27.

physical activity but we need to look at how we support people and

:10:28.:10:31.

get the confidence to get out there and do it.

:10:32.:10:36.

On the high street this shop provides help to locals. They have

:10:37.:10:41.

seen massive results. I have lost eight stone. I have completely

:10:42.:10:45.

changed my lifestyle slowly and gradually. At first I wanted a quick

:10:46.:10:49.

fix but I have realised that was not the way to go.

:10:50.:10:58.

In this national TV advert, the government's health message is

:10:59.:11:02.

clear. But it seems to many people are not paying attention. Leanne

:11:03.:11:08.

Brown, BBC Look North, Hull. I spoke to David Stalker from UK

:11:09.:11:13.

Active. The organisation that did the research. I asked him if he

:11:14.:11:18.

thought he wanted local councils to nine people into doing exercise.

:11:19.:11:24.

Absolutely not, I want councils to make things more available and for

:11:25.:11:30.

people to get up and take action. Let us get the nation moving bit by

:11:31.:11:36.

bit. You have had parks and things like that for years, some people

:11:37.:11:40.

just do not want to take exercise, you cannot bully them. That is

:11:41.:11:45.

correct, but what we can do is find out what they are interested in and

:11:46.:11:49.

get them involved. We have not done enough research let us work together

:11:50.:11:57.

and make a difference. If someone like myself who does not do any

:11:58.:12:02.

sport or go to a gym, I costing the Council of health authorities? I

:12:03.:12:07.

would not think so because I think you do other things. We are talking

:12:08.:12:10.

about people who are not getting any activity for 30 minutes. But you

:12:11.:12:16.

said this is costing Hull ?23 million, where'd you get that figure

:12:17.:12:22.

from? From Freedom of Information data. That is the brutal reality of

:12:23.:12:31.

it. You have an open`air gym today for able to attend, they will either

:12:32.:12:35.

want to do it or not. They are not suddenly going to say, " I think I

:12:36.:12:39.

will pop along and do some exercise." Yes, but it makes them

:12:40.:12:47.

think, does it not? They can get involved in the community and I

:12:48.:12:50.

think people will use it. Finally, would you say the figure is 30% of

:12:51.:12:57.

adults watching and Hull tonight, slumped on there so, who do not do

:12:58.:13:01.

exercise, would you like to give them a lecture? I do not want to

:13:02.:13:06.

lecture them, I want to let them know about the facilities that are

:13:07.:13:11.

available to them and hopefully your local authority will work with you

:13:12.:13:15.

to make things happen. It is both the and our responsibility to make

:13:16.:13:24.

things work. Thank you for that. As it up to councils to get people

:13:25.:13:29.

off the sofa and out of the house? Should people take responsibility

:13:30.:13:29.

for their own health? Contact us. Still to come: Hull City aim to end

:13:30.:13:53.

their 20 14th goal drought. And how charity shops are going

:13:54.:13:57.

upmarket in an effort to bring in new custom. `` 2014.

:13:58.:14:07.

Thank you for all of the pictures, keep sending them to us. This is

:14:08.:14:11.

Mark Foster's picture of Humber Bridge. It was taken at

:14:12.:14:15.

Barton`upon`Humber. Have you missed me, Paul said he had

:14:16.:14:38.

missed me? The weather as the weather!

:14:39.:14:47.

Unfortunately I could not bring any Australian weather back with me, it

:14:48.:14:51.

is horrible and their, it is wet and windy and we have the concern for

:14:52.:14:58.

ice tomorrow. There will be some and treated surfaces, so take care. You

:14:59.:15:04.

can see the isobars are tightly packed and we are in store for a

:15:05.:15:07.

windy weekend, particularly on Saturday. You can see all of the

:15:08.:15:11.

cloud associated with this area of low pressure that is spreading from

:15:12.:15:15.

the West and producing heavy spells of rain and strong winds. Slowly

:15:16.:15:19.

this main body of rain will ease away out into the North Sea. It will

:15:20.:15:23.

be followed by a few showers but it will be dry overnight and our

:15:24.:15:31.

attention turns to the ice. These are the temperatures in the air so

:15:32.:15:34.

on the ground temperatures will drop to freezing.

:15:35.:15:46.

Some icy stretches to start the day tomorrow. It is not all doom and

:15:47.:15:52.

gloom for the weekend but it will be windy. Tomorrow morning there will

:15:53.:15:56.

be some sunshine and as we head through Saturday we will see those

:15:57.:16:00.

showers kicking in and by this time tomorrow the showers will have

:16:01.:16:07.

merged into longer spells of rain. It will not be quite as cold

:16:08.:16:10.

tomorrow but factoring in that strong wind from the South East, it

:16:11.:16:16.

will feel like jelly. Six or seven Celsius. Sunday works to be better.

:16:17.:16:22.

One or two showers. It will still be windy. We start the day on Monday.

:16:23.:16:29.

It will turn wet and windy to the afternoon and remains unsettled for

:16:30.:16:37.

the rest of the week. Paul has just sent me a text message

:16:38.:16:43.

and says he is in Brisbane! Can you believe it? ! Nice to see you back.

:16:44.:16:53.

A national expert on headaches who works in hell says rain covers for

:16:54.:16:57.

migraines and bad headaches will become a thing of the past. Two of

:16:58.:17:01.

his patients are benefiting from a life`changing machine that zaps away

:17:02.:17:08.

the pain. Vicky Johnson has more. Excruciating headaches made that

:17:09.:17:13.

I'm's life unbearable he thought he would have to give up his job at

:17:14.:17:18.

this potato factory in Lincoln. I went into shock because the pain was

:17:19.:17:21.

so severe. I collapsed and would be out of it. I had to take morphine

:17:22.:17:29.

just to give me some kind of relief. But it was not reducing the pain, it

:17:30.:17:34.

just made it Bible. Recently he and other migraine sufferers have taken

:17:35.:17:39.

part in a trial and Hull to use this gadget to clear away the pain. It

:17:40.:17:45.

has just given me my life back. I was not going to appointments with

:17:46.:17:50.

friends, Bailey got to work. This has just change that. The device

:17:51.:17:54.

works by sending electrical pulses to the brain to short`circuit the

:17:55.:17:59.

elliptical storm that causes the symptoms of migraine. According to

:18:00.:18:05.

recent research 39% of patients were found to be pain`free after two

:18:06.:18:09.

hours. It also reduced the number of attacks by around 40%. It is like

:18:10.:18:17.

getting out of prison. Doing a life sentence and walking out as a free

:18:18.:18:21.

man. I have gone from constant pain to one or two headaches each month.

:18:22.:18:26.

Whilst this machine is working well, it is a little cumbersome. At this

:18:27.:18:31.

clinic, the doctor showed what is currently being developed. This is

:18:32.:18:37.

one which will stimulate a nerve on the right side of the face. Within a

:18:38.:18:41.

couple of minutes it feature migraine with drugs but not through

:18:42.:18:50.

tablets or injections, that is a thing of the past. People will be

:18:51.:18:56.

able to say that they treat their migraine with a device they carry in

:18:57.:19:00.

their pocket. Darren does not go anywhere without his new head

:19:01.:19:05.

blasting machine. He is hoping it will soon be available on the NHS so

:19:06.:19:12.

that others can benefit. The Environment Agency says it newly

:19:13.:19:15.

repaired flood defences in Boston will hold back high tides tonight

:19:16.:19:20.

and over the weekend. Water reached its high point a few weeks ago. Our

:19:21.:19:27.

correspondent is in Boston at the moment. How convinced and the

:19:28.:19:33.

Environment Agency of these defences? The Environment Agency are

:19:34.:19:36.

confident in the work they have done over the past few months since that

:19:37.:19:40.

people search caused that the damage last year. The high`paid has passed

:19:41.:19:46.

here. You can just see is of the work that has been done by the

:19:47.:19:50.

Environment Agency. Some of the barriers that have been put in

:19:51.:19:55.

place. It is estimated that 100 homes are still empty as a result of

:19:56.:19:59.

that flood damage. Ahead of the high`paid over the next few days the

:20:00.:20:03.

Environment Agency said it should not pose too much of a problem. I

:20:04.:20:08.

would like to reassure people that those defences have been designed to

:20:09.:20:11.

do their job. High`paid 's are coming and this weekend and again, I

:20:12.:20:15.

want to reassure people that the high`paid itself normally only

:20:16.:20:19.

happens twice a month and does not cause flooding. We must watch the

:20:20.:20:24.

weather forecast for the pressure and high winds and this weekend we

:20:25.:20:29.

do not have the low pressures and the wind is in a favourable

:20:30.:20:33.

condition so we do not expect to see any further events of the end of

:20:34.:20:39.

last year. Further out on the coast repairs

:20:40.:20:45.

have been made to sea defences and at the nature reserve at Gibraltan

:20:46.:20:51.

Point. Are still in place for Bridlington. The Environment Agency

:20:52.:20:55.

said a flood alert has been issued for the town, articulate around

:20:56.:21:00.

Harbour Road and the floral Pavilion. It is monitoring the

:21:01.:21:05.

situation very closely. There has been a new site for

:21:06.:21:11.

Lincoln football club's Stadium. Silicon bank is being looked at as a

:21:12.:21:16.

possibility. Chairman Mr Dorrian says things could rapidly develop.

:21:17.:21:25.

Hull City has had a slump in form, making January their worst month

:21:26.:21:29.

since returning to the top flight. They have not scored a goal this

:21:30.:21:34.

month, can be put it right? Simon Clark reports.

:21:35.:21:39.

This was the latest clash when the Tigers to a point. Try as they met

:21:40.:21:43.

they could not find a way past Crystal Palace on Tuesday. This was

:21:44.:21:47.

despite Jelavic and Shane Long starting together for the first

:21:48.:21:52.

time. No matter, as the Tigers lost 1`0, tomorrow's opponents Tottenham

:21:53.:21:59.

Hotspur lost five of the # 5`1 to Manchester City. It is

:22:00.:22:05.

another game for us and we have done very well at home. We must produce a

:22:06.:22:08.

big performance to get anything tomorrow. We must produce a big

:22:09.:22:13.

performance at home but we know we are capable of doing. Let us hope we

:22:14.:22:19.

can. Being a football manager and a player is tough, but I think being

:22:20.:22:26.

in the hot seat takes the biscuit. Steve Bruce will know what I am

:22:27.:22:30.

talking about. To try and remain in the league is difficult but he has

:22:31.:22:33.

made a good fist of it so far. And this transfer deadline day, Jake

:22:34.:22:41.

Livermore has been confirmed as staying on loan from Tottenham

:22:42.:22:43.

Hotspur but Danny Graham could leave. He has played in every game

:22:44.:22:52.

possible. He is a big player for Hull City. The relationship that

:22:53.:22:57.

Livermore and Huddlestone have in the middle of the park is fantastic.

:22:58.:23:02.

When Hull City play Tottenham Hotspur they will have Steve Harper

:23:03.:23:04.

in goal for the suspended Alan McGregor. Jake Livermore cannot play

:23:05.:23:09.
