Good evening and welcome. The bell of a Hull trawler, the Gaul, has

:00:00.:00:13.

been rung today in honour of the men who lost their lives when the vessel

:00:14.:00:16.

sank, 40 years ago. A memorial service took place to remember all

:00:17.:00:20.

of those from the city who've been lost at sea, as Emma Massey reports.

:00:21.:00:26.

One minute's silence in memory of men lost at sea marked by the sound

:00:27.:00:32.

of this bell. It had once sat on board the Gaul. The trawler sank 40

:00:33.:00:36.

years ago with the largest loss of life in the history of the fishing

:00:37.:00:39.

industry, with up to 36 fisherman losing their lives. Families of

:00:40.:00:51.

those lost attended the service. It is incredibly important and part of

:00:52.:00:58.

the history. It has to be kept going for years and years. It helps the

:00:59.:01:12.

families. For the sake of the thousands who have lost their lives,

:01:13.:01:16.

we must continue to tell the stories. It is part of our story.

:01:17.:01:23.

Today's annual service is held to remember all the lives from Hull

:01:24.:01:32.

that have been lost at sea. I have come from a shift `` from a fishing

:01:33.:01:38.

family and a fishing community and I have lost family at sea. I would not

:01:39.:01:45.

miss this for anything. There was also news today of the city's

:01:46.:01:48.

long`awaited memorial for lost trawlermen. I was on the committee

:01:49.:01:56.

for many years and it is something we have been working for four`day

:01:57.:02:02.

long time and we are at that point for being realised. Next year's

:02:03.:02:09.

service will be at the new memorial. Wreaths were laid and floral

:02:10.:02:13.

tributes cast into the sea. It was a chance to reflect on the risk the

:02:14.:02:16.

men took doing their jobs. Something people who came today hope will

:02:17.:02:21.

never be forgotten. Lincolnshire Police are

:02:22.:02:23.

investigating after a body was found in the River Witham in Lincoln.

:02:24.:02:27.

Officers were called to Spa Road near the city centre earlier today

:02:28.:02:30.

after a rower reported seeing a body in the water. The police underwater

:02:31.:02:33.

search unit has now recovered the body, and a postmortem examination

:02:34.:02:38.

will take place later. A Lincolnshire church could shut its

:02:39.:02:41.

doors for good unless parishioners can raise enough money to repair it.

:02:42.:02:45.

The spire on St Margaret's in Thimbleby near Horncastle has been

:02:46.:02:49.

dismantled for safety reasons. But now it's down, repairs still can't

:02:50.:02:52.

go ahead unless enough funds are raised. We've got a very long road

:02:53.:03:07.

to go along. In total, the total repairs and refurbishing, we are

:03:08.:03:13.

looking in excess of ?150,000. We are confident we can do it.

:03:14.:03:15.

Difficult decisions are facing those who manage the East Yorkshire coast,

:03:16.:03:18.

after the damage of this winter's storms. At Spurn Point, the road was

:03:19.:03:22.

washed away. Now the BBC's Countryfile programme has been

:03:23.:03:24.

investigating the best way to protect the coast, and whether we

:03:25.:03:34.

can afford big defences. We can build them but they are extremely

:03:35.:03:39.

expensive, so if you build more you will have to spend more on

:03:40.:03:42.

maintaining them. Predictions for climate change suggest larger and

:03:43.:03:47.

bigger storms will become more frequent in the future. The storm

:03:48.:03:54.

events that we had in December could recover every ten or 20 years. And

:03:55.:03:58.

you can see more of that report, including alternatives to heavy sea

:03:59.:04:00.

walls, on Countryfile later tonight on BBC One.

:04:01.:04:03.

Onto football now, and Scunthorpe United are still flying high after

:04:04.:04:06.

their 14th game unbeaten in League Two. In the Premier League, Hull

:04:07.:04:09.

City finally got their first win of 2014 against Steve Bruce's old club,

:04:10.:04:11.

Sunderland. An old stamping ground for Steve

:04:12.:04:15.

Bruce. But the former Sunderland manager returned to the Stadium of

:04:16.:04:18.

Light with his Hull City team still searching for its first league win

:04:19.:04:24.

of the year. Fortunately his old team gave Hull a helping hand when

:04:25.:04:28.

Wes Brown was sent off for bringing down Shane Long.

:04:29.:04:33.

Nothing came of the resulting free`kick, but the Tigers scored

:04:34.:04:41.

soon after. Long getting a touch on Jake Livermore's shot from a corner.

:04:42.:04:47.

Hull had further chances to score, but it wasn't until just after the

:04:48.:04:50.

hour when Long's fellow strike partner, Nikicia Jelavic, headed

:04:51.:04:53.

home after a deflection to score his first goal since coming to the club.

:04:54.:04:58.

The partnership is starting to flourish a bit only have started

:04:59.:05:02.

doing what I knew they would do in terms of their quality. In League

:05:03.:05:05.

Two, Scunthorpe United welcomed top`of`the`table Chesterfield to

:05:06.:05:07.

Glanford Park, and took the lead after 15 minutes through Sam

:05:08.:05:11.

Winnall. But on the stroke of half time, the Iron gave away a penalty

:05:12.:05:14.

and Owen Doyle equalised for the visitors.

:05:15.:05:17.

The draw means Scunthorpe remain in second place in the table.

:05:18.:05:22.

Let's get the weather forecast now, with Kay Crewdson.

:05:23.:05:29.

Through this evening, all parts should be largely dry and overnight

:05:30.:05:34.

we are looking at some clear skies and lighter winds than of late, so

:05:35.:05:40.

both of those sectors up for the touch of frost with temperatures

:05:41.:05:45.

dropping to around freezing. HLA and frosty start, watch out for an icy

:05:46.:05:53.

start. Dry and bright with decent spills of sunshine and isolated

:05:54.:05:54.

showers across Lincolnshire. Good evening. We have a significant

:05:55.:06:16.

number of severe warnings out. Most of them have been issued on the

:06:17.:06:18.

River Thames today. Now, of course, with more rain due this week, that

:06:19.:06:25.

is not good news, and as well as that, we are expecting some gales as

:06:26.:06:29.

well on the coast. But this week, perhaps an increased risk of some

:06:30.:06:33.

snow as well. At the moment we are in a quiet spell of weather, with

:06:34.:06:37.

fewer showers around, this evening and overnight. There is a risk as

:06:38.:06:41.

temperatures
