it is bad. When is it going to end? Goodbye

:00:00.:00:08.

Did even Inc. The headline. Humberside's Police and Crime

:00:09.:00:18.

Commissioner under fire after he says people should pay more council

:00:19.:00:23.

tax for better policing. I think it is his own way of saying I won't

:00:24.:00:28.

listen to anybody. Plans to protect the Lincolnshire

:00:29.:00:31.

coast from floods are given the go`ahead.

:00:32.:00:33.

Should our councils take a cue from budget airlines and offer a cheaper,

:00:34.:00:43.

no frills service? I don't think people want frills from their

:00:44.:00:46.

council, they just want a good solid service at a reasonable price.

:00:47.:00:50.

As this year's Games get under way in Russia, we meet our own Winter

:00:51.:00:57.

Olympics hopefuls. And somewhat and windy weather on the way. I will be

:00:58.:01:01.

back later with all the details for the weekend.

:01:02.:01:11.

The man responsible for the running of Humberside Police has been

:01:12.:01:17.

accused of match show politics over his plans to increase the amount

:01:18.:01:22.

that local people pay for policing. Matthew Grove says plans to raise

:01:23.:01:26.

the precept by just under 2% will help keep more police on the street.

:01:27.:01:32.

The chairman of the panel which oversees him says he is acting in

:01:33.:01:36.

foolish manner and is ignoring important views. In a lowered, ``

:01:37.:01:43.

moment, we will hear what he has to say. First, this report. 5p is the

:01:44.:01:55.

extra amount each week. My shoe Grove says the precept increase is

:01:56.:02:03.

vital. `` Michael Grove. The public say to me their first priority is to

:02:04.:02:09.

insure they have a good police. They so, Matthew, collect out `` protect

:02:10.:02:14.

our police service. This is what I need to do on their behalf. It is a

:02:15.:02:26.

very modest increase. Mr Grove is proposing an increase of just under

:02:27.:02:31.

2%. That works out as 5p per week for each household. The money will

:02:32.:02:36.

go to more officers on the street. The chairman of the crime panel is

:02:37.:02:41.

angry. He says they are being ignored. You're a macro I think it

:02:42.:02:44.

is a foolish way to go about it. I would put it quite simply, it is a

:02:45.:02:50.

proposal which is not needed at all. I think it is just a way of saying,

:02:51.:02:57.

I am my own man, I am the commission, I won't listen to the

:02:58.:03:01.

panel, the government, to anybody. Matthew Grove says police. Not

:03:02.:03:08.

provide an adequate service for the area at the fourth has to make

:03:09.:03:12.

savings of more than ?30 million. He says he says he's already making

:03:13.:03:17.

savings. This is the former police authority headquarters, a building

:03:18.:03:20.

he put up for sale soon after being elected, a move, he says will save

:03:21.:03:27.

?50,000 a year. Most people I spoke to were happy for him to ask for

:03:28.:03:30.

more. If it keeps police on the street, yes. yes. That is what they

:03:31.:03:38.

are there for. I am all in favour. If it saves jobs, fair enough. But I

:03:39.:03:43.

don't want it wasted on stupid things, luxuries. They can stay on

:03:44.:03:49.

the street longer, yes, it is a good thing. I don't bother reporting

:03:50.:03:53.

anything now so my opinion of the police is very low so maybe with a

:03:54.:03:56.

bit of extra money, they rubbed it is they can do more, they should be

:03:57.:04:02.

able to do it anyway stop is Matthew Grove goes ahead, these few extra

:04:03.:04:07.

pennies a week will add up to another ?800,000 a year for the

:04:08.:04:10.

Humberside Police Kitty but the panel that originated his work they

:04:11.:04:20.

as arguments don't stand up. Matthew Grove is in the studio now. Good

:04:21.:04:24.

evening. The chairman of the crime panel doesn't think there is a need

:04:25.:04:28.

to increase peoples bills saying it could be taken from reserves. Why

:04:29.:04:34.

don't you do that? I presented him with a 36 page in`depth report with

:04:35.:04:38.

evidence, with figures that clearly demonstrated there was a need. In

:04:39.:04:43.

that report was a widespread consultation I undertook where 75%

:04:44.:04:48.

of the public question supported this. Only 18% of people said they

:04:49.:04:54.

opposed it. Is their money in reserve that you could have used?

:04:55.:05:00.

Let's be clear. At this moment in time, Humberside Police are spending

:05:01.:05:02.

more money than we receive an income. We have over the next five

:05:03.:05:08.

years to find ?30 million of savings. We are doing that. We now

:05:09.:05:13.

have an additional ?1.5 million of savings. I have reached the point

:05:14.:05:18.

where I think we can have a safe police service. The chairman of the

:05:19.:05:24.

panel said you would be foolish to press ahead with the plans and you

:05:25.:05:28.

are not willing to listen. I am answerable to the panel, not to the

:05:29.:05:34.

public. `` to the public, not to the panel. The panel was split and one

:05:35.:05:41.

of the people were so upset, they left the meeting. The chairman has

:05:42.:05:49.

said this is man show behaviour. Are you just being match? The

:05:50.:05:55.

responsible Nitties I have two take charge of the police area to detect

:05:56.:06:02.

120,000 people, I don't play Games without. It is far too important.

:06:03.:06:12.

people seem hostile to you. Last year, they were criticising me for

:06:13.:06:16.

freezing it. This time, I am proposing a modest increase which

:06:17.:06:21.

for most people will be two or ?3 a year and they are saying I

:06:22.:06:24.

shouldn't. If the chairman is watching tonight, what would you say

:06:25.:06:29.

to him? I think you should read about what his powers of. The panel

:06:30.:06:33.

did have the power of veto but they did not achieve the level of veto

:06:34.:06:40.

they needed. I work for the public, not for the government, and

:06:41.:06:43.

certainly not the police and crime panel. Would you be prepared to pay

:06:44.:06:51.

extra to cook `` keep the police on the streets?

:06:52.:07:15.

Lincolnshire's police and the admission that has told he should

:07:16.:07:20.

apologise to the Chief Constable for suspending him last year. The police

:07:21.:07:26.

and crime panel said Alan Hardwick ignored advice and wasted ?150,000

:07:27.:07:31.

or he suspended Neil Rhodes. A number of members of the police and

:07:32.:07:37.

I panel had received a lot of communications from their

:07:38.:07:42.

constituents and the general theme of those communications was a demand

:07:43.:07:48.

that the Commissioner apologised for his actions. In response, Alan

:07:49.:07:53.

Hardwick said it would be inappropriate and discourteous to

:07:54.:07:56.

comment before I have received and considered any communication from

:07:57.:07:58.

the panel following yesterday's meeting. In a moment, Age UK City of

:07:59.:08:09.

Culture 2017 is whole. The businesses that say Hull City of

:08:10.:08:15.

culture year is a golden opportunity to destroy stereotypes about the

:08:16.:08:18.

city. Businesses on the Lincolnshire Coast

:08:19.:08:20.

have welcomed the government's decision to allow ?5 million to be

:08:21.:08:24.

spent protecting the area from flooding. The money will be spent on

:08:25.:08:27.

building sandbanks to defend thousands of homes between

:08:28.:08:29.

Mablethorpe and Skegness which were threatened by December's tidal

:08:30.:08:32.

surge. Our correspondent Paul Murphy reports. Work to repair this

:08:33.:08:40.

coastline has been underway ever since December's damaging tidal

:08:41.:08:44.

surge. News of extra defence money has been welcomed, especially by

:08:45.:08:49.

vulnerable coastal businesses. We are below sea`level here and all the

:08:50.:08:55.

way along. This place was flooded and people were evacuated. You see

:08:56.:09:00.

other people being flooded and it is a really scary thing. The 30,000

:09:01.:09:06.

properties and 20,000 caravans on this low`lying coast represent a

:09:07.:09:09.

significant part of Lincolnshire's economy. we having edible assets

:09:10.:09:15.

behind the flood defences that we need to protect, agriculture,

:09:16.:09:19.

industry, our tourist industry brings in 0.5 minimum pounds a

:09:20.:09:25.

year. And of course, residents. Hundreds lost their lives in the

:09:26.:09:30.

East Coast floods of 1953. One of the survivors believes the newly

:09:31.:09:34.

announced funding doesn't go far enough. No good. Not enough. It will

:09:35.:09:46.

cost more to restore it. The new government money comes on top of an

:09:47.:09:49.

existing programme of repairs. It includes funding to protect 200

:09:50.:09:55.

homes here in East Yorkshire after damage to the Hun Burbank. `` the

:09:56.:10:06.

Humber bank. There is protection for more than 2000 homes at get awful.

:10:07.:10:10.

There is funding for Lincoln to protect BT properties `` to protect

:10:11.:10:19.

BT properties. I think it should be allocated all over, the money. The

:10:20.:10:26.

mini does come quite high. `` the river does come quite high. What the

:10:27.:10:32.

tide moves away, the diggers must put back. The money is being

:10:33.:10:37.

welcomed but it is a drop in the ocean in this constant process.

:10:38.:10:42.

Defences protected much of the coast from December's tidal surge. But

:10:43.:10:46.

these communities know there is little room for complex and see. ``

:10:47.:10:56.

for complacency. Police investigating the murder of a

:10:57.:11:00.

man in Gainsborough have been given more time to question three people.

:11:01.:11:03.

24`year`old Ivans Zanovics who was originally from Latvia was found

:11:04.:11:06.

dead at his home in Etherington Street on the 17th January after a

:11:07.:11:09.

fire. Two local men and a local woman are in custody. The German

:11:10.:11:17.

lorry driver has been jailed after trying to struggle cannabis in. He

:11:18.:11:28.

was stopped as he drove off a ferry. The idea of charging council tax

:11:29.:11:33.

payers for extra for bigger wheelie bins and other nonessential services

:11:34.:11:36.

has been rejected by the lead of one are most cash`strapped local

:11:37.:11:42.

authorities. Ministers say we could learn lessons from budget airlines

:11:43.:11:46.

Web customers receive the basic product but have to pay for any

:11:47.:11:51.

more. The move has been pioneered by Council in London. Recent years have

:11:52.:12:01.

seen budget airlines pioneer and no`frills approach to travel. So,

:12:02.:12:05.

could the same principle work at your local town hall? Barnet in

:12:06.:12:12.

north London has been described as the first no`frills Council. The

:12:13.:12:14.

idea is that if residents want to pay for larger bins or fast track

:12:15.:12:19.

planning applications, that is what they get. If not, they receive the

:12:20.:12:24.

basic service like anyone else. The council leader told me he is cutting

:12:25.:12:32.

council tax bills this year by 1%. I don't think people want frills from

:12:33.:12:36.

their council, they want good, solid service at a reasonable price. That

:12:37.:12:41.

is what we are doing. Barnett is home to Finchley, famously

:12:42.:12:44.

represented in Parliament by a Lincolnshire lass called Margaret

:12:45.:12:49.

Thatcher. I suspect she would have approved of the idea no`frills

:12:50.:12:55.

councils but will do local residents say? I like Barnet Council. They do

:12:56.:13:03.

offer value for money. They keep the borough clean. Do you get value for

:13:04.:13:09.

money? No, we are always having to put our hands in our pockets, paying

:13:10.:13:15.

for extra bills. Eric Pickles believes many councils could further

:13:16.:13:20.

tightened their belts so would the no`frills approach work in somewhere

:13:21.:13:28.

like north`eastern Lincolnshire? Did you become an no`frills council? We

:13:29.:13:36.

are a no`frills council. We are doing everything that Mr pickles has

:13:37.:13:40.

told us today. Two years ago, when I became the leader of the council, we

:13:41.:13:46.

had a ?140 million revenue budget. By the time I get to 2017, I have a

:13:47.:13:53.

?67 million revenue budget so it is more than halved. Barnett is

:13:54.:13:56.

Barnet, north east lynxes north`east links. The jury is out on whether

:13:57.:14:03.

this could get off on the ground elsewhere. Labour and Conservative

:14:04.:14:12.

MPs will discuss this on the Sunday Politics that 11 o'clock. Still

:14:13.:14:28.

ahead tonight, Bruce takes Hull City to play his old club sunblinds. This

:14:29.:14:34.

years Games are underway in Sochi and we meet three goals in Hull

:14:35.:14:44.

dreaming of the Winter Olympics. Tonight's photograph was taken by

:14:45.:14:45.

Lance Hollingworth. We will have another picture on

:14:46.:15:01.

Monday night. Will you be with us on Monday night? You sound like you

:15:02.:15:04.

need to blow your nose. You want to get to bed with a hot toddy. I

:15:05.:15:15.

expected to Monday to Thursday, I don't expect it Friday as well.

:15:16.:15:20.

Sorry, couldn't resist. This weekend, Sunday, probably the better

:15:21.:15:25.

day of the two days tomorrow is going to be a blustery day and you

:15:26.:15:29.

are more likely to catch a shower tomorrow. It looks wet and windy

:15:30.:15:34.

overnight tonight. You can see from the isobars tightly packed, so

:15:35.:15:37.

blustery conditions, particularly Saturday. That won't ease down until

:15:38.:15:43.

we get to Monday. We had a few showers today but you can see from a

:15:44.:15:46.

satellite picture how nicely the cloud broke up through the course of

:15:47.:15:50.

the day. Through the evening, we may get the odd shower while and the

:15:51.:15:55.

showers will merge into longer spells of rain as this band pushes

:15:56.:16:00.

up from the South West, in the meantime there will be heavy rain

:16:01.:16:04.

and some strong winds as well. Temperatures by the end of the night

:16:05.:16:08.

down to around four or five degrees so a fairly unsettled night to come.

:16:09.:16:12.

The sun will rise in the morning at 7:36am. Tomorrow, there will be

:16:13.:16:23.

residual cloud, the odd shower about at first but then it will clear

:16:24.:16:28.

away. We will have the spell of white bright, dry weather. It will

:16:29.:16:33.

be chilly. You can see through the afternoon, Chow was powering ash

:16:34.:16:40.

piling in. `` showers powering in. The breeze will come `` become

:16:41.:16:50.

gusty. Temperatures seven or eight degrees. Looking further ahead,

:16:51.:16:53.

Sunday probably the better day of the two. Fewer showers and fewer

:16:54.:16:57.

still as we kept through Monday. The breeze will tend to life than bit

:16:58.:17:02.

but we will keep the unsubtle theme as we had through next week. `` the

:17:03.:17:10.

unsubtle theme. Tuesday looks windy. `` unsettled theme. Have a nice

:17:11.:17:19.

weekend. Businesses helping to fund Hull's

:17:20.:17:23.

City of Culture year say it's a once in a lifetime chance to destroy

:17:24.:17:27.

stereotypes about the city. 22 companies have already pledged more

:17:28.:17:31.

than a third of a million pounds ` a small step on the way to getting the

:17:32.:17:35.

?15 million needed for the project. But among them are some you wouldn't

:17:36.:17:39.

naturally expect to be involved in arts sponsorship, as Anne`Marie

:17:40.:17:43.

Tasker reports. Heavy industry is not something

:17:44.:17:46.

you'd think would go hand in hand with culture. But this galvanising

:17:47.:17:50.

company in Hull says sponsoring the City of Culture in 2017 is a unique

:17:51.:18:01.

chance to promote the city. The City of Culture is a one`off event for

:18:02.:18:06.

the city. If you want to be on board and believe in what this is,

:18:07.:18:13.

promoting the city culture, and showing the positive offerings that

:18:14.:18:18.

we have, then we strongly believe it was money worth spending. And

:18:19.:18:21.

they're not the only unexpected sponsor. Phil Batty is just 24 years

:18:22.:18:25.

old, running his own small advertising business. For him,

:18:26.:18:27.

donating ?17,000 is a huge sacrifice. It does represent a

:18:28.:18:37.

personal salary for a year and it is a massive investment for us to make

:18:38.:18:43.

as a company. But the longer term benefits of pristine this region

:18:44.:18:46.

will definitely outweigh that. It is not something we have done before

:18:47.:18:50.

and it would take a massive opportunity for us to do it again.

:18:51.:18:57.

Even before Hull was named City of Culture, 22 businesses ` known as

:18:58.:19:00.

the Angels ` pledged to give ?17,000 each. But it's usually big

:19:01.:19:02.

multinational companies sponsoring the arts. Take the Tate Modern in

:19:03.:19:06.

London, that's just got its sculpture hall funded by a car

:19:07.:19:11.

manufacturer for 11 years. So Arts Council England says getting small

:19:12.:19:19.

businesses on board is unusual. The answer does better out of

:19:20.:19:23.

multi`million pound giving than it necessarily does out of smaller

:19:24.:19:27.

giving but I think in terms of the money that has been given to the

:19:28.:19:32.

City of Culture, you have exceptional project which is clearly

:19:33.:19:37.

generating significant civic pride. And it's that civic pride that's

:19:38.:19:40.

encouraged firms like this to get on board ` and for small industries to

:19:41.:19:45.

give arts a helping hand. Back to our story on the ?13 million

:19:46.:19:49.

bid to make a five`mile section of the busy Hull to York road a dual

:19:50.:19:53.

carriageway. The A1079 is used by 18,000 drivers a day. East Riding

:19:54.:19:57.

Council and City of York Council want to dual the road between

:19:58.:19:59.

Pocklington and Wilberfoss. Thank you very much indeed for all

:20:00.:20:41.

of those. Hull City have a great opportunity

:20:42.:20:45.

to move away from relegation trouble with Premier League Games against

:20:46.:20:47.

Sunderland and Southampton in the next week. Sunderland was the club

:20:48.:20:51.

which sacked Steve Bruce before he became the Tigers' manager. He joked

:20:52.:20:54.

that he was expecting a "warm welcome back." Here our sports

:20:55.:21:03.

reporter Simon Clark. This is the drama from the last time the two

:21:04.:21:08.

sides met. Hull City took the lead and then Sunderland lost their

:21:09.:21:12.

temper. They lost two of their players to red cards and then lost

:21:13.:21:20.

the Game 1`0. Steve Bruce sacked by Sunderland before redemption of the

:21:21.:21:24.

Tigers. As far as I am concerned, it is gone. We can joke about it, when

:21:25.:21:33.

it happens, it disappoints you. But it is gone for me. I have been here

:21:34.:21:37.

nearly a couple of years, there have been two or manager since have left

:21:38.:21:43.

Sunderland, let's get on with it. We need to do the right thing first. We

:21:44.:21:50.

need to make sure that we are at our best to level and then compete. The

:21:51.:21:57.

Tigers have moved on to 40 points, the magic number most teams try to

:21:58.:22:03.

achieve to stay in the nearly. Russ Wilcox used to play for Hull City,

:22:04.:22:09.

the Scunthorpe United manager, and he believes the Tigers can do it

:22:10.:22:13.

this season. Steve Bruce is a top`class manager. He has a wealth

:22:14.:22:19.

of X areas, he knows there are going to be difficult times. He is a

:22:20.:22:30.

little bit of a mini league. Last week, I was here saying the Tigers

:22:31.:22:33.

had to stop the rot and get something out of the Tottenham game

:22:34.:22:37.

and they did. Now it is to really awkward Games. Sunderland and then

:22:38.:22:45.

Southampton. It is tough in this Premier league.

:22:46.:22:51.

Scunthorpe United could take a giant leap towards League Two promotion if

:22:52.:22:58.

they winds tomorrow. The Iron welcome leaders Chesterfield to

:22:59.:23:00.

Glanford Park hoping to restore their place at the top of the table

:23:01.:23:04.

and cement one of the top`three promotion places. No one wants to be

:23:05.:23:13.

in the play`offs, everyone wants to get promoted automatically. We are

:23:14.:23:17.

fully confident we can be there come May and we are concentrating on

:23:18.:23:20.

making sure that we do our best to make it possible.

:23:21.:23:26.

And you can hear how Hull City do on BBC Radio Humberside tomorrow. Their

:23:27.:23:31.

game at Sunderland is on FM. They've also got Scunthorpe United's game

:23:32.:23:35.

with Chesterfield on AM. And Grimsby Town's match with Southport is on

:23:36.:23:41.

digital radio and online. Lincoln City take on Hyde. That match is on

:23:42.:23:53.

BBC Radio Lincolnshire from 2.00pm. The Winter Olympics ` officially

:23:54.:23:56.

opened in Socchi in Russia earlier today. Many athletes will achieve

:23:57.:23:59.

their life long dream by competing. Tolu Adee oh yay has been to meet

:24:00.:24:04.

three girls from Hull who are hoping to skate at the next Games in South

and are all in team GB's development squad. Would you love most about

:24:27.:24:33.

skating? I love the challenge and competing. Like the thrill and the

:24:34.:24:40.

excitement of the jumps under spins. The adrenaline that you get when you

:24:41.:24:43.

are going around. Competing as a wheelie good experience to get. How

:24:44.:24:50.

about all the outfits? Really good. The last time Britain won gold for

:24:51.:24:53.

figure skating at the Winter Olympics was with Torvil and Dean in

1984. The girl's coach ` says getting to the Games is what

:24:59.:25:05.

motivates her skaters. For the young people, it is the dream towards they

work for. It is not just about the skating, you have to do the ballet,

:25:13.:25:17.

the flexibility, the strength work, so, yes, it takes a considerable

:25:18.:25:22.

amount of time. The girls will take part in a mini competition. I have

some school course. The management team have kindly agreed to be

judges. First up is Saskia ` the judge's

winners on this occasion ` they'll be hoping to triumph if they make it

:25:47.:25:51.

to the next Games in South Korea in four years time. So, watch this

space. I was thinking this time last year,

:25:53.:26:05.

we were following dancing on ice. Let's get a recap of the headlines.

:26:06.:26:10.

Flooding spreads to many areas in the south of England with Somerset

:26:11.:26:14.

still bearing the brunt of it and Humberside Police Commissioner is

:26:15.:26:17.

accused of behaviour after he says people should pay more for better

:26:18.:26:27.

policing. the responsible it is I have ordered takes charge and

:26:28.:26:32.

protect the people. I don't play Games without. Let's have a look at

:26:33.:26:39.

the weather. Windy with brighter spells. Showers developing during

:26:40.:26:45.

the afternoon. Top temperatures mild, getting up to eight Celsius.

:26:46.:26:51.

After the discussion with the crime Commissioner, thank you for all

:26:52.:26:55.

these messages. Alfred says, I am against the increase in the police

:26:56.:27:01.

reset. Simon says, I'm a lifelong Labour voter. Matthew Grove is

:27:02.:27:07.

conservative but his proposed rise gets my vote. Stephen says mayhem

:27:08.:27:16.

breaks loose with mayhem breaking loose. What a lot of people would be

:27:17.:27:23.

prepared to pay more than that just to see the police on the streets now

:27:24.:27:28.

and again. Ray says, I would be more than happy to pay an extra 2% for

:27:29.:27:33.

policing are providing that Mr Grove, his deputy and all their

:27:34.:27:38.

secretaries and assistance would be happy to accept a 2% pay cut. Have a

:27:39.:27:43.

peaceful weekend, look after yourselves. Goodbye.
