And joining in. The headlines from us.

:00:08.:00:12.

The death of a rail worker ` claims safety procedures were ignored.

:00:13.:00:15.

The question is, why were they there when they knew there were trains

:00:16.:00:18.

still running on the other side of the track?

:00:19.:00:25.

Parents are told their children should be in school ` even if they

:00:26.:00:33.

have an infectious illness. If it is contagious, the child should be kept

:00:34.:00:38.

of to stop anything spreading. If you stay home, you nip it in the

:00:39.:00:39.

bud. A call to scrap equal pay between

:00:40.:00:45.

the north and the south. And making a splash for cash ` Luke

unsettled week. All the details in 15 minutes. Good evening.

:00:58.:01:09.

A rail worker who was hit by a train in Saxilby near Lincoln died as a

:01:10.:01:13.

result of a string of broken and ignored safety procedures. That was

:01:14.:01:16.

the finding of a Rail Accident Investigation Branch report into the

:01:17.:01:19.

death of 26`year`old Scott Dobson, who was killed in December 2012. It

:01:20.:01:26.

adds to concerns about the lack of safety precautions for thousands of

:01:27.:01:31.

casual rail workers. Paul Murphy reports.

:01:32.:01:35.

This is an industry which, by its very nature, is hazardous. But is

:01:36.:01:41.

safety taken seriously enough? It is December 2012, early in the

:01:42.:01:44.

afternoon on a railway line in Lincolnshire. The gang of workers

:01:45.:01:51.

are repairing the track. One of the workers steps back just as a train

:01:52.:01:57.

is passing. He doesn't survive. Network Rail called the death of

:01:58.:02:00.

Scott Dobson a watershed moment, and promised new safety rules. Scott had

:02:01.:02:07.

been hired that day by an agency. Many in the industry say safety is

:02:08.:02:10.

compromised by the use of such casual staff. We have spoken to

:02:11.:02:15.

track workers who have done casual shifts for renewables companies

:02:16.:02:19.

across the North of England. They tell us bad safety practices are

:02:20.:02:24.

widespread. I worked with one client for a year because I wouldn't do

:02:25.:02:32.

work that wasn't safe. More than a year on, Scott's family still has

:02:33.:02:35.

questions about the safety of the gang on that day at Saxilby. Why

:02:36.:02:39.

were they there when they knew that somebody would have been in danger?

:02:40.:02:47.

80,000 people are registered to work on railways. Only a quarter of them

:02:48.:02:52.

are Network Rail staff. Scott Dobson's death has forced the

:02:53.:02:55.

company to rethink the way they manage this workforce. We will no

:02:56.:02:59.

longer accept employees to be employed by agencies. They will only

:03:00.:03:06.

be employed by Network Rail. We need to make sure this is the last

:03:07.:03:10.

fatality, and we will make sure any changes are made to reverse those

:03:11.:03:16.

risks. Scott had been hired that day by a recruitment company called

:03:17.:03:18.

sky`blue, a subsidiary of the engineering giant Carillion. They

:03:19.:03:24.

tell us they are unable to comment on specific questions or issues

:03:25.:03:27.

related to Scott's death until after an inquest and further enquiry. They

:03:28.:03:33.

do however say that they go to great lengths to ensure they workforce can

:03:34.:03:36.

raise safety concerns, and that these will be acted upon. Since the

:03:37.:03:43.

incident, they say, they have gone beyond industry standards to put in

:03:44.:03:48.

place new safety procedures. Network Rail has said that by September,

:03:49.:03:52.

many of its new safety reforms will be in place ` too late for Scott's

:03:53.:03:55.

family, but aimed at preventing a repeat of the terrible events which

:03:56.:04:04.

took his life. Paul's out on the rail network this

:04:05.:04:10.

evening. Do you think there will be genuine safety improvements as a

:04:11.:04:16.

result of Scott Dobson's death? I think it is fair to say that a year

:04:17.:04:22.

run, there is still concern about safety, particularly from the rail

:04:23.:04:26.

unions, who believe this is a proliferation of casual staff and

:04:27.:04:30.

evolved chain of responsibility down the supply chain to subcontractors

:04:31.:04:35.

is bad for rail safety. Network rail, which runs this rail and rails

:04:36.:04:40.

all ran the country, says that his death was a watershed moment. The

:04:41.:04:46.

big lessons have been learned. It is implementing safety changes which

:04:47.:04:50.

come into effect in September. This will make the railway is a much

:04:51.:04:54.

safer place to work, and prevent a repeat of the tragedy of December of

:04:55.:04:59.

last year. Thank you very much. And this story is covered in more detail

:05:00.:05:02.

on tonight's Inside Out for Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. You can

:05:03.:05:05.

hear from the union and others who've carried out track work on the

:05:06.:05:12.

railways. In a moment: The hospitals under

:05:13.:05:15.

scrutiny as inspectors drive to raise standards. Parents in east

:05:16.:05:29.

Yorkshire and Lincolnshire are being told their children could still

:05:30.:05:32.

attend school even if they have an infectious illness. Conjunctivitis,

:05:33.:05:39.

tonsillitis, and hand, foot and mouth are classed as minor ailments

:05:40.:05:43.

in a leaflet being made available to schools across East Yorkshire.

:05:44.:05:47.

They can't be happy and healthy all of the time, but on the days when

:05:48.:05:54.

they are sick, should they be here? In Yorkshire, parents have been

:05:55.:05:57.

given this leaflet to help them make this decision. In the list of

:05:58.:06:02.

reasons to not keep your child off school, are contagious diseases like

:06:03.:06:07.

conjunctivitis, and, foot and mouth disease, and tonsillitis.

:06:08.:06:13.

Conjunctivitis is very contagious, particularly the viral forms. If you

:06:14.:06:19.

get an outbreak of that in a school, it is nasty. It lasts for ten days.

:06:20.:06:25.

In secondary schools in England, 55% of authorised absences were due to

:06:26.:06:31.

illness. In the East Riding, that figure was 60%. It is the second

:06:32.:06:35.

highest in the country. The local authority says it is acting on

:06:36.:06:39.

advice from both the government and the NHS. The decision about your

:06:40.:06:44.

sending a charter school remains with the parents. We're not saying

:06:45.:06:47.

anything other than that. Parents should use their judgement and

:06:48.:06:51.

common sense because parents know their children best. We hope to do

:06:52.:06:55.

here is help them make a good decision. To want a child with

:06:56.:07:01.

tonsillitis in your classroom? We have a duty of care to our staff and

:07:02.:07:04.

children at the school. We have a balancing act to do. We wait

:07:05.:07:08.

children to maximise their time in school, but we don't want them when

:07:09.:07:13.

they are infectious. A bit of common sense, liaising with the local

:07:14.:07:17.

general practitioners as to whether it is appropriate for the child to

:07:18.:07:24.

be in school. I think they are best off at home. If they stay at home,

:07:25.:07:28.

you need it in the bad and that is the end of it. If it is contagious,

:07:29.:07:33.

they should stay off to keep it spreading. If they can keep going,

:07:34.:07:37.

it is best to do that. It may just be a day off here and there, but

:07:38.:07:42.

they do end up missing school. It can affect academic achievement. The

:07:43.:07:48.

local authority hope these local guidelines will help people think

:07:49.:07:50.

twice before keeping their child off school.

:07:51.:07:54.

What do you think of this story? If your child had conjunctivitis,

:07:55.:07:57.

tonsillitis or hand, foot and mouth disease, would you automatically

:07:58.:08:03.

keep them away from the classroom? Should they be at school or not?

:08:04.:08:08.

Here's the e`mail. Some more news now.

:08:09.:08:21.

A 33`year`old man has been arrested after armed police cordoned off a

:08:22.:08:23.

Lincolnshire village. Officers were called to a flat in Ruskington this

:08:24.:08:27.

morning after a report that there was an armed man inside. The

:08:28.:08:30.

stand`off ended when a trained negotiator persuaded the suspect to

:08:31.:08:35.

come out peacefully. Police say the man was on his own and that no`one

:08:36.:08:39.

else was at risk. Lincolnshire Police is joining four

:08:40.:08:42.

other forces in the East Midlands to work more closely. Traffic policing,

:08:43.:08:45.

armed response and dog sections will each work as single regional teams.

:08:46.:08:50.

Chief constables say it will increase the number of available

:08:51.:08:55.

officers and save money. Some Yorkshire Ambulance staff are

:08:56.:08:58.

coming to the end of a four`hour strike. The Unite Union, which

:08:59.:09:01.

organised a 24`hour walk`out on Saturday ` says new shifts could

:09:02.:09:04.

mean paramedics working ten hours without a meal break. The Ambulance

:09:05.:09:10.

Service says it's had contingency plans in place.

:09:11.:09:15.

There are calls for people working in the public sector in Lincolnshire

:09:16.:09:19.

and East Yorkshire to be paid less than those doing the same job in the

:09:20.:09:24.

South. The Institute of Directors says it's 'crazy' to have equal pay

:09:25.:09:28.

in London and places like Hull and Lincoln. They claim it discourages

:09:29.:09:33.

businesses from coming to the north because they can't compete with pay

:09:34.:09:37.

rates in the public sector. More from the Institute of Directors in a

:09:38.:09:40.

moment, but first, Kate Sweeting has been finding out what people living

:09:41.:09:47.

here think of the idea. Debates about the north/south divide

:09:48.:09:50.

are nothing new, but now a group which represents business leaders

:09:51.:09:53.

says a divide exists, and wages should reflect that. It's a view

:09:54.:10:04.

which has angered unions here. Fuel prices have not fallen in the North

:10:05.:10:08.

compared to the south. It is the politics of divide and conquer. It

:10:09.:10:13.

is about making sure our working people have dignified lives and are

:10:14.:10:16.

able to go out and provide for their families and have good opportunities

:10:17.:10:19.

in life. And people in Hull agree paying people less in the north

:10:20.:10:24.

wouldn't be fair. People work just as hard in the North as they do in

:10:25.:10:27.

the south. It should be just a sequel. Do the same work, get the

:10:28.:10:36.

same pay. It should be based on your job, not where you live. That it's

:10:37.:10:44.

cheaper to live here. Yes. Is it really any cheaper living here than

:10:45.:10:48.

in the South? A pint of milk will cost the same wherever you live. As

:10:49.:10:53.

all filling up your car or even buying a car. The difference comes

:10:54.:10:56.

to when you buy a house. The average cost of a house in the south is

:10:57.:11:00.

twice as expensive as it is in the north. And for some, the lower cost

:11:01.:11:04.

of living is a big attraction. Sebastian Musil is moving his energy

:11:05.:11:07.

investment business from the south to Hull. If I can pay people less,

:11:08.:11:16.

it is better for them to be in a job that they are qualified rather then

:11:17.:11:20.

being an employed or working in a job that maybe they have to do just

:11:21.:11:23.

to earn money. So while some say a pay divide could create jobs in the

:11:24.:11:27.

north, workers here may take some convincing. This came from the

:11:28.:11:38.

Institute of directors. I spoke to their chief economist. I put it to

:11:39.:11:43.

him if we reduce wages in the north, those people will have less money to

:11:44.:11:49.

spend, affecting the economy. The biggest thing is we have to make

:11:50.:11:53.

sure that businesses in all parts of the country are competitive, and the

:11:54.:11:56.

best way to gauge economic prosperity is to make sure the

:11:57.:11:59.

businesses can compete, and clearly if you have one part of the company

:12:00.:12:04.

in charge of too much for wages, it sets a goal which other parts of the

:12:05.:12:07.

company can't manage. How would it help if public sector workers like

:12:08.:12:11.

teachers were paid less in the north and south? What part of that is

:12:12.:12:15.

fair? What is fair is to make sure that the economy works as a whole.

:12:16.:12:22.

We don't have a national cost of living. Costs of living vary across

:12:23.:12:26.

the country. Are you saying that because houses are cheaper to buy in

:12:27.:12:30.

the north, then if you are working there, you should not be paid as

:12:31.:12:34.

much money? We should not decide on local issues. What we have to get

:12:35.:12:39.

around is everybody paid according to productivity. If you are a

:12:40.:12:46.

hard`working teacher doing the same job in Kingston`upon`Hull as

:12:47.:12:48.

Kingston`upon`Thames, why should you be paid the same? `` shouldn't you.

:12:49.:12:55.

What we would like to see is the quality teachers get paid more. We

:12:56.:13:02.

have performance`related pay. Trade have a big disadvantage in

:13:03.:13:05.

nationalised pay bargaining. Unions That is why they exist. The unions

:13:06.:13:09.

say that because of pay freezes and pension contributions, Hull are

:13:10.:13:14.

facing a 60% wages cut by 2015. We will see if that comes about, but

:13:15.:13:18.

clearly what we have is the situation where in many parts of the

:13:19.:13:21.

country, people are paid better than their counterparts. We don't want

:13:22.:13:24.

that. We want a situation where people are able to compete on a

:13:25.:13:29.

level playing field. What would you say to those people, public sector

:13:30.:13:32.

workers watching the telly tonight, saying "his idea is cheap labour"?

:13:33.:13:37.

My idea is to have all parts of the country competitive, and those parts

:13:38.:13:40.

of the country that have difficulty attracting businesses or where

:13:41.:13:43.

businesses have not been thriving as much, we would like to see them

:13:44.:13:46.

being able to be more productive, and those mean people pay... I know

:13:47.:13:50.

you're not public sector, but if your job is move to Hull, would you

:13:51.:13:55.

be happy to take a pay cut? I would be happy to be paid what the going

:13:56.:13:59.

rate in Hull is. Thank you very much.

:14:00.:14:06.

And this is another story we'd like to hear your thoughts on. Should

:14:07.:14:10.

public sector wages in the north be cut as a way to attract more private

:14:11.:14:15.

businesses up here? You have heard the story. Your thoughts on this

:14:16.:14:24.

one. We will have some before we finish. Looked forward to hearing

:14:25.:14:33.

from you. Thank you for watching. Still ahead tonight: The local

:14:45.:15:01.

Tonight's was taken, a stunning picture. Another picture tomorrow

:15:02.:15:12.

night. Good evening. Have a nice weekend? Yes. Possibly the nicest

:15:13.:15:22.

shirt and tie combinations I have ever seen on television. This is not

:15:23.:15:28.

a send`up. It is a genuine e`mail. I have a there. J should have gone to

:15:29.:15:36.

Spec Savers. As he heard about the orange one? Unit did the other day.

:15:37.:15:41.

Let's have a look at the weather. Tomorrow, not too bad. A bit of

:15:42.:15:53.

sunshine between systems. This weather front will bring rain after

:15:54.:15:57.

midnight. This feature will bring some rain on Tuesday night. There

:15:58.:16:00.

will be more rain to come Wednesday afternoon. Very unsettled weak

:16:01.:16:07.

indeed. It is not being too bad today. We will see sunshine across

:16:08.:16:10.

Norfolk, eastern part of Lincolnshire. Here is the weather

:16:11.:16:14.

of. It will move across as for the course of tonight. It will stay dry

:16:15.:16:18.

this evening and during the first part of tonight. In the early hours

:16:19.:16:23.

of the morning, that rain will push north`eastwards. It would amount to

:16:24.:16:26.

a great deal, and in fact towards the end of the night, it will clear.

:16:27.:16:33.

Averages down to three Celsius. The sun will rise in the morning at

:16:34.:16:40.

7:43am. There is your next water times. There might be a bit of rain

:16:41.:16:47.

first things towards the coast clearing. Watch out for icy patches

:16:48.:16:51.

around dawn. Other than that, a generally decent day. Very low

:16:52.:16:54.

cloud. The risk of the odd shower with some sunny breaks in place. The

:16:55.:17:00.

race will pick up, especially in the afternoon and evening ahead of that

:17:01.:17:04.

next weather system pushing in from the south`west. These are very

:17:05.:17:07.

average temperatures for early February. You might the odd eight

:17:08.:17:15.

degrees out. It turns wet on Tuesday night, and Wednesday books really

:17:16.:17:19.

unsettled. Windy with showers. Bubba spells of rain at first. Thursday,

:17:20.:17:26.

not bad. One or two showers. Uncertainty for Friday, but at the

:17:27.:17:29.

moment, mostly dry. That is the forecast.

:17:30.:17:39.

One of the funniest men had no eyebrows, so you are in good

:17:40.:17:44.

company. Only with the eyebrows, not the comedy. Have a nice evening. See

:17:45.:17:46.

you tomorrow. Hull Royal Infirmary and Castle Hill

:17:47.:17:49.

Hospital in Cottingham are coming under intense scrutiny this week as

:17:50.:17:52.

dozens of inspectors from the Care Quality Commission visit the trust.

:17:53.:17:56.

It's part of tough new measures designed to raise standards

:17:57.:17:58.

following a national review into hospital death rates. Our health

:17:59.:18:03.

correspondent, Vicky Johnson reports.

:18:04.:18:07.

The Care Quality Commission came in for fierce criticism last year

:18:08.:18:10.

following the Keogh review into high death rates. Two trusts in our area

:18:11.:18:16.

were among 11 exposed as failing. Since then, the inspection teams

:18:17.:18:19.

from the Care Quality Commission have been transformed from just

:18:20.:18:22.

three or four members to the 55`strong squad currently in Hull

:18:23.:18:28.

and East Yorkshire. The new director of hospitals, Professor Sir Mike

:18:29.:18:30.

Richards, has been spearheading the changes.

:18:31.:18:38.

We're acknowledging there have been problems in the past. I can tell you

:18:39.:18:44.

we have very different processes now, different management, and we're

:18:45.:18:47.

doing things differently. Previously, inspections would

:18:48.:18:49.

concentrate on different departments. Now it's the whole

:18:50.:18:51.

hospital, focusing particularly on eight key areas ` Accident and

:18:52.:18:54.

Emergency, Maternity, Acute, Medical and Surgery, Care for the Elderly,

:18:55.:19:01.

End of Life Care and Outpatients. Hospital managers say they're

:19:02.:19:03.

determined to learn as much as possible from this process. What we

:19:04.:19:13.

have said to the staff is that this is an opportunity to be absolutely

:19:14.:19:17.

honest, open and transparent about what we are proud of and what we are

:19:18.:19:21.

frustrated by, what we need to improve. We want that openness

:19:22.:19:25.

around this, so we will take whatever comes as the lessons we

:19:26.:19:29.

need to learn. Healthwatch, which aims to be the patients' champion,

:19:30.:19:32.

has already submitted more than 400 views to the inspection team. If

:19:33.:19:35.

comments from today's visitors are anything to go by ` these are likely

:19:36.:19:44.

to be very varied. I found it brilliant, the world that my mum is

:19:45.:19:51.

on. I think it is really good. I was 24 hours in the casualty, and there

:19:52.:19:58.

is 24 hours and assessment before I went into award. Fantastic. No

:19:59.:20:05.

problem at all. Once all the information has been collected and

:20:06.:20:08.

processed, the trust will be given a rating, a bit like Ofsted's

:20:09.:20:12.

judgement for schools. It will either be outstanding, good, needs

:20:13.:20:16.

improvement or inadequate. It will be at least two months before staff

:20:17.:20:22.

find out how they are doing. When we know, we will let you know. Thank

:20:23.:20:27.

you to everyone who got in touch. People who don't exercise up costing

:20:28.:20:33.

taxpayers because they don't look after their health. Researchers said

:20:34.:20:36.

Hull had in the highest level of lazy people in the UK. But

:20:37.:20:40.

surprisingly after Friday's programme, there was a big response.

:20:41.:20:53.

Just a few. Chloe says: I think we got your message there. Nick said:

:20:54.:21:10.

Michael says: Thank you very much for all of your comments.

:21:11.:21:16.

Hull City are just two points above the Premier League relegation zone

:21:17.:21:19.

following their draw against Spurs at the weekend. Shane Long scored

:21:20.:21:23.

the Tigers' first league goal of the year to give them an early lead. The

:21:24.:21:26.

game finished one`all, though, following a Spurs equaliser in the

:21:27.:21:28.

second half. Scunthorpe United are still second

:21:29.:21:31.

Officials from the Super League are promising a better competition than

:22:05.:22:07.

ever when the season gets under way a week on Friday. Hull FC are at

home to Catalan with Hull KR under way two days later against Leeds at

:22:14.:22:17.

Craven Park. This year sees big changes, including the

:22:18.:22:22.

reintroduction of relegation. This report from our sports reporter,

Simon Clark, contains some flash photography.

They are the elite of rugby league. 14 teams, including two from Hull.

:22:30.:22:34.

At the end of the season, two sides will be relegated for the first time

:22:35.:22:38.

since 2007. Although teams are planning for the top in play`offs,

:22:39.:22:42.

the force of the dreaded drop is not far away. It will be an exciting

:22:43.:22:48.

season, especially from the fans' point of view. You don't want to be

:22:49.:22:52.

in that bottom section of the ladder, or anywhere near it, towards

:22:53.:22:56.

the back end of the year, so it does make every game important. Every

:22:57.:23:00.

point is important, which is something we need to address. There

:23:01.:23:07.

is a lot of pressure on. Every team needs to perform and perform their

:23:08.:23:12.

best. We're no exception. We expect to play well every week, and we

:23:13.:23:16.

expect to do well this season. This is how the changes work. Two teams

:23:17.:23:19.

are relegated this season. The play`off system alters in 2015.

:23:20.:23:22.

The magic weekend, where all teams play at the same venue, stays. The

:23:23.:23:28.

format is one that we have now endorsed, so we have to get on with

:23:29.:23:30.

it. It is one that can lead to exciting

:23:31.:23:39.

rugby at the end of the season, and if you're in the top eight, you will

:23:40.:23:44.

get those hard games at the end of the season. Fans will get a better

:23:45.:23:47.

quality of competition. It is the introduction of something that has

:23:48.:23:50.

been missing from the game. It will bring excitement to both ends of the

:23:51.:23:54.

game. As you say, every week and game will matter. This promises to

:23:55.:23:59.

be one of the most important seasons in the nine seasons since Super

:24:00.:24:05.

League started. There are 14 teams. Eight will make the play`offs. Two

:24:06.:24:08.

will be relegated. That should mean that every single game will have

:24:09.:24:11.

something riding on it. BBC Look North at the Super League launch in

:24:12.:24:14.

Manchester. Luke Campbell, the Gold medal winner

:24:15.:24:18.

from Hull, is asking people to get involved in this year's Sport

:24:19.:24:21.

Relief. Luke swapped the boxing ring for the swimming pool to encourage

:24:22.:24:24.

people to get fit and raise money for the charity, which helps people

:24:25.:24:28.

in the UK and abroad. Phillip Norton met him at Beverley Leisure Centre.

:24:29.:24:32.

It's time to get wet. Taking the plunge and putting his weight behind

:24:33.:24:36.

Sport Relief. Oi! Are those boxing gloves? Olympic gold medallist Luke

:24:37.:24:40.

Campbell boxing as you have never seen him box before. It's the

:24:41.:24:46.

first`time swimming with these on, you know, which is a little bit

:24:47.:24:50.

different. I don't usually pair the two together. You do get some

:24:51.:24:54.

professionals that do shadow`box underwater. It's great for speed and

:24:55.:24:59.

for your lungs, as well. Luke's just one of the country's top sports

:25:00.:25:02.

personalities backing next month's energetic fundraising event with the

:25:03.:25:05.

aim of getting people exercising and having fun. It's to get in the pool,

:25:06.:25:12.

get fit. I do my swimming twice a week in my training and it's a great

:25:13.:25:16.

all`round sport and it's good fun. It gets you fit, it gets you strong.

:25:17.:25:20.

Two years ago the biannual event raised more than ?60 million for

:25:21.:25:23.

good causes and this year's has already given lifeguard Nathan a

:25:24.:25:28.

smile. It doesn't happen every day, I turn up to work and see Luke there

:25:29.:25:33.

in his boxing gloves just in the pool. Not a regular occurrence here.

:25:34.:25:36.

He did really well, actually. I wouldn't like to swim in boxing

:25:37.:25:40.

gloves myself. I can imagine it will be a lot harder. We should include

:25:41.:25:44.

it in some of our training, really, make it a bit harder for us all.

:25:45.:25:48.

After his Olympic gold in London 2012, preparations are well under

:25:49.:25:50.

way for Luke's fifth professional fight against Scott Moises at the

:25:51.:25:54.

end of the month. But he's more than happy to squeeze Sport Relief in

:25:55.:25:57.

with his training. It's a great charity. As a sportsman myself, you

:25:58.:26:01.

know, I know what it can do for you. All you have got to do is get

:26:02.:26:08.

involved and help raise some money. A rallying call from the poolside.

:26:09.:26:11.

Hull's number one Olympian hopes his ringside fans will dive in and get

:26:12.:26:22.

involved. I like his headband. He also gets the pool to himself.

:26:23.:26:25.

If you need more information, Sport Relief is in March. There are

:26:26.:26:29.

details of how to get involved on the website, sportrelief.com. The

:26:30.:26:32.

Tomorrow's weather ` a grey, damp start in places.

sunny spells. Just a small risk of a shower. Top temperature seven

degrees. We were talking about public sector

He says that we need less money. Dave has texted to save the wage

:27:11.:27:16.

difference between the north and south is already present. Matt says

:27:17.:27:21.

I am sick of the North and South divide. It is ridiculous. I vote for

:27:22.:27:26.

northern independence. Steve says teachers have had an inner and outer

:27:27.:27:30.

London rate for years. Those men are already paid less than those are the

:27:31.:27:35.

same job. That is it from us tonight. Join me if you can tomorrow

:27:36.:27:42.

on the radio. Have a good evening. See you tomorrow night.

:27:43.:27:58.

Why are you staring at me? Just wonder how things grow and grow

:27:59.:27:59.

Why are you staring at me? Just wonder how things grow and grow

:28:00.:28:08.

Yeah, well, mummies and daddies do argue sometimes.
