Thank you. That's all from the BBC News at Six so it's goodbye from me,

:00:00.3:59:59

and Good evening and welcome to BBC Look

:00:00.:00:07.

North. The headlines tonight. A call to regulate free meals and food

:00:08.:00:10.

banks to stop some people taking advantage. I have seen people come

:00:11.:00:27.

in here, with money in their pockets, ?120.

:00:28.:00:31.

A call for improvements ` why cycling in Yorkshire's cities isn't

:00:32.:00:34.

always good for your health. Today there's a call for more cycle

:00:35.:00:37.

lanes like these as figures show the number of casualties on our roads is

:00:38.:00:40.

up by a third. The Tigers' record signing inches

:00:41.:00:43.

Hull City closer to premiership survival.

:00:44.:00:45.

And the blind skier from Lincolnshire hoping for a place on

:00:46.:00:49.

the podium in Sochi. The forecast follows shortly.

:00:50.:00:58.

There are concerns that some people are taking advantage of food banks

:00:59.:01:08.

and free meal services in Hull. Many are independently run by small

:01:09.:01:11.

groups or churches and rely on people's honesty to take only what

:01:12.:01:17.

they need. Now charities are being encouraged to work together and

:01:18.:01:20.

share information to stop misuse and make the system more effective.

:01:21.:01:28.

Sarah Walton reports. A fresh bowl of steaming soup. A

:01:29.:01:35.

welcome sight on a cold day. Every Saturday, the Amazing Grace Church

:01:36.:01:38.

in Hull gives free food to anyone who says they're in need. Not only

:01:39.:01:42.

the alcoholics, the homeless, not only people who are taking drugs. At

:01:43.:01:46.

one point we had somebody who was a student. For some reason he found

:01:47.:01:54.

himself in a difficult situation. It's open to anybody. People say

:01:55.:01:58.

some are taking advantage of that kindness visiting different

:01:59.:02:00.

charities every day so they can save their money for drink and drugs. You

:02:01.:02:06.

hear it all the time. I see people, the same faces going to the soup

:02:07.:02:16.

kitchens where I go. Always the same faces. I see people coming here who

:02:17.:02:21.

have been paid on a Saturday morning and have ?120 in their pocket. There

:02:22.:02:25.

is a church on Princess Avenue and they put bags of clothes out for the

:02:26.:02:31.

homeless. A certain one, he will grab the full bag and then he'll

:02:32.:02:35.

take it to the clothes bank to sell it and then spend the money on booze

:02:36.:02:39.

or whatever he's taking. The worry is that groups like the one here

:02:40.:02:43.

can't spot when people are taking advantage of the system. Now it is

:02:44.:02:46.

being suggested they all come together and cooperate in a far more

:02:47.:02:50.

official way. I think there's an awful lot that the participants they

:02:51.:02:53.

can do about putting their information together on some type of

:02:54.:02:56.

spreadsheet, so it is available through lots of different ways so we

:02:57.:02:59.

can map the provision that is available in the city. Whether that

:03:00.:03:02.

be lunchtime clubs, food banks. That is already being done at some

:03:03.:03:08.

places. Hull food bank is part of the Trussell Trust, a network of 400

:03:09.:03:11.

centres across the country. It says size gives it influence and allows

:03:12.:03:15.

it to work with a wide range of health and social workers who

:03:16.:03:18.

identify those genuinely in need. But others believe there are

:03:19.:03:21.

benefits to a more informal approach. This church runs a small

:03:22.:03:24.

daily drop`in meal and food bank service. It stops abuse by getting

:03:25.:03:27.

to know people first. We don't advertise the fact there is a food

:03:28.:03:34.

bank at Saint Hilda's. People know about it because this church is in

:03:35.:03:37.

the middle of the community, everybody knows where it is. People

:03:38.:03:42.

who have been helped by the church put the word around. While different

:03:43.:03:46.

groups vary in their approach to tackling food poverty, they do all

:03:47.:03:49.

agree that demand for their service is increasing so it's important to

:03:50.:03:53.

have a debate on how the system can be improved.

:03:54.:04:00.

Earlier, I spoke to the Liverpool and Wavertree MP Luciana Berger, who

:04:01.:04:03.

in 2012 made a documentary about people who use food banks. I started

:04:04.:04:08.

by asking Ms Berger if she thought people were taking advantage of food

:04:09.:04:11.

banks. Well, I've visited many food banks,

:04:12.:04:14.

not only in my own constituency in Liverpool, but right across the

:04:15.:04:18.

country, and I have never met any food bank user that has walked in

:04:19.:04:24.

with their heads held high. It is very difficult for people to have to

:04:25.:04:30.

accept the help. People are being referred to food banks because they

:04:31.:04:34.

have got nothing to eat. What do you say to those people who say, yes,

:04:35.:04:38.

but they still have a mobile phone and a television the size of a wall?

:04:39.:04:42.

That is what some people will be saying. The former Lord Mayor of

:04:43.:04:45.

Liverpool said the very same thing on the radio. I invited him to come

:04:46.:04:49.

and see a local food bank and meet people and talk to them. He actually

:04:50.:04:53.

changed his opinion. He met people that don't have mobile phones, and

:04:54.:04:56.

if they had gone, weren't able to put credit on it, and didn't have

:04:57.:05:00.

any luxuries, and people who went without meals in order to provide

:05:01.:05:03.

for their children. You are saying everyone who is there has to be

:05:04.:05:07.

there? It is not a lifestyle choice? It's certainly not a lifestyle

:05:08.:05:10.

choice. There is a challenge that people perhaps aren't aware of the

:05:11.:05:13.

fact that there are hundreds of thousands of people right across our

:05:14.:05:17.

country, not just in deprived areas where you might expect it, but in

:05:18.:05:20.

affluent areas too, who are really struggling to get by. It only takes

:05:21.:05:24.

one thing, a job loss or a reduction in working hours, or an emergency

:05:25.:05:27.

repair, which means they have no buffer and nothing to fall back,

:05:28.:05:35.

they have to go to food banks. The Government already provides a safety

:05:36.:05:41.

net in benefits for essentials. Should we teach people visiting food

:05:42.:05:45.

banks how to manage the money they do have better? It's really

:05:46.:05:48.

important to know that it's not just people out of work ` people in work

:05:49.:05:53.

are having to go to a food bank, too. Jobcentres are having to refer

:05:54.:05:58.

people to food banks because we are seeing an increase in the number of

:05:59.:06:01.

people sanctioned and seeing their benefits taken away from them. I

:06:02.:06:08.

come back to the point, yes, you might get your jobseeker's allowance

:06:09.:06:11.

but you might have to have an emergency repair, like a hole in the

:06:12.:06:16.

roof. With increases in bills, increasing basic costs around food

:06:17.:06:19.

and energy, people are really struggling. Very good to have you on

:06:20.:06:29.

the programme. So is Luciana Berger right that

:06:30.:06:32.

everyone who uses a food bank or free meals service needs to be

:06:33.:06:39.

there? Or if people are abusing the system ` as our report suggests `

:06:40.:06:42.

what needs to change to prevent that from happening?

:06:43.:07:01.

In a moment: Claims that building a supermarket on Lincolnshire's only

:07:02.:07:05.

cattle market would cause "lasting harm."

:07:06.:07:13.

There are calls for Yorkshire's cities to be made safer for cyclists

:07:14.:07:17.

as the region prepares to host this summer's Grand Depart of the Tour de

:07:18.:07:21.

France. Local authorities are hoping the event will inspire more of us to

:07:22.:07:27.

get on our bikes. But figures show that there has been a sharp rise in

:07:28.:07:30.

the number of accidents involving cyclists since 2009. How dangerous

:07:31.:07:41.

are roads in our area for those on two wheels?

:07:42.:07:46.

Recent statistics show there has been a rise in the number of

:07:47.:07:49.

cyclists killed or seriously injured on the road in Yorkshire and the

:07:50.:07:56.

Humber between 2009 and 2012. It rose by nearly a third. There are

:07:57.:08:03.

more people cycling. Campaigners say more people won't get cycling and

:08:04.:08:06.

less road and less road Ahmed Saif. I have been out with cyclists here

:08:07.:08:11.

in Hull, talking to people about problems they face.

:08:12.:08:17.

As a cycle courier in Hull, David Noble knows every lump and bump in

:08:18.:08:21.

the road. He travels around 40 miles a day on roads and cycle routes. In

:08:22.:08:25.

the last year, he's gone through four tyres and five wheels.

:08:26.:08:36.

I'd sooner take a route that's 24 miles, and using the cycle track

:08:37.:08:39.

cuts time off your journey. But when it comes to cost`effectiveness, when

:08:40.:08:42.

you're replacing ?30 tyres and ?60 wheels every day, obviously going

:08:43.:08:45.

the longer way is the cheapest route.

:08:46.:08:47.

This cycle shop in the city says they're repairing more bikes than

:08:48.:08:50.

ever before, something they blame on poorly`maintained roads. We're

:08:51.:08:54.

seeing a lot of buckled wheels, broken spokes, punctures, torn

:08:55.:08:57.

tyres, bent forks ` people having accidents and going over the bike

:08:58.:09:04.

because of pot holes. Hull has one of the highest numbers of cyclists

:09:05.:09:08.

for a UK city, and in 2011, it was named as one of Britain's top cities

:09:09.:09:14.

for cyclists. Events like Skyride have seen growing numbers of people

:09:15.:09:20.

taking part. But that increase in interest has led to an increase in

:09:21.:09:26.

accidents. In Hull in 2010, there were 25 serious accidents involving

:09:27.:09:29.

cyclists. In 2013, it had almost doubled, to 41. With events like the

:09:30.:09:34.

Tour De France coming to Yorkshire this summer, it's hoped it will

:09:35.:09:38.

inspire more of us to get on our bike. Today, a cycling manifesto was

:09:39.:09:41.

launched to encourage the Government to raise its spending on cycling and

:09:42.:09:46.

improve safety. OUr surveys have shown that 60% of

:09:47.:09:50.

people who don't ride a bike have said they would if they felt safer,

:09:51.:09:54.

so the latent demand is absolutely enormous, and the potential good

:09:55.:09:57.

that can do our country is also enormous. In Hull, a cycling action

:09:58.:10:03.

plan is in place which aims to encourage more of us to take up the

:10:04.:10:06.

sport, but campaigners say that won't happen if cycle paths are left

:10:07.:10:19.

like this. If those problems can be overcome, it could have an affect on

:10:20.:10:25.

lots of other services. The survey has shown that if 10% of trips were

:10:26.:10:30.

made by cycle, the sailing to the NHS would be ?250 million a year.

:10:31.:10:41.

Thank you. Always an emotive issue. Another one you might want to

:10:42.:10:52.

comment on tonight. I look forward to hearing from you. A county

:10:53.:11:01.

council decision that could see some Lincolnshire libraries run by

:11:02.:11:04.

volunteers, is to be challenged in the High Court. The campaign group,

:11:05.:11:07.

Save Lincolnshire Libraries, has lodged legal papers which could

:11:08.:11:09.

force a judicial review. The authority says it has to save ?1.5

:11:10.:11:13.

million and insists it's acting lawfully. Lecturers at the

:11:14.:11:22.

University of Hull joined other colleagues across the country in a

:11:23.:11:25.

two`hour strike as part of a continuing row with the government

:11:26.:11:28.

over pay. Trades Unions say members voted to strike because staff have

:11:29.:11:35.

only been offered a 1% pay rise. A body which was found in the River

:11:36.:11:38.

Witham in Lincoln yesterday has been identified as a man who's been

:11:39.:11:42.

missing since the end of last year Ryan Morgan left Lincoln County

:11:43.:11:45.

Hospital in December. His body was discovered by a rower. A postmortem

:11:46.:11:48.

examination will now be held. Two women from Immingham have been

:11:49.:11:51.

given a grant from the Lottery to try and help children in North East

:11:52.:11:55.

Lincolnshire to sleep better. Claire Earley and Carol Batchelor are both

:11:56.:11:57.

parents of severely disabled children who didnt sleep properly

:11:58.:12:01.

until they put in place a strict sleep routine. They claim that even

:12:02.:12:04.

the most chronic sleep problems can be cured by changing habits and now

:12:05.:12:08.

they're running sleep clinics in the area.

:12:09.:12:17.

Got rid of the telly, for a start. Changed it for soft music playing in

:12:18.:12:20.

the background for him to settle with, and every night we used to

:12:21.:12:24.

turn it down a notch till he used to settle with nothing in the room.

:12:25.:12:28.

After two to three weeks, he was sleeping. It was amazing!

:12:29.:12:31.

And you can see Carol and Claire's story in full on tonight's Inside

:12:32.:12:38.

Out. Still ahead tonight: Orchestrating a

:12:39.:12:52.

win ` the Tigers inch closer to premiership survival. The blind

:12:53.:13:01.

skier from Lincoln hoping for a place on the podium.

:13:02.:13:09.

Keep your photographs coming in. Thank you for that one. There is a

:13:10.:13:21.

bit of Cumulus in the top. How is the man flu, Peter? I heard

:13:22.:13:32.

you went to bed with a hot talk to. Trust you to hear about that. It is

:13:33.:13:35.

too dangerous to exchange peasantry is with you. The headline for the

:13:36.:13:44.

next 24 hours is unsettled. It will quickly turn wet. A bit of sleet and

:13:45.:13:52.

snow through tomorrow afternoon. On this weather friends here, it might

:13:53.:14:01.

turn a bit wintry. It is colder than average. There are showers at the

:14:02.:14:05.

moment in southern parts of Lincolnshire, heading into North

:14:06.:14:12.

Norfolk. We need to get rid of these showers. Watch out for ice on

:14:13.:14:28.

untreated surfaces. Rurally, we could be down to freezing point. The

:14:29.:14:43.

sun will rise about 7:30am. Dry, icy start. The dryness will not last

:14:44.:14:48.

long. Bit of snow above the top of the world. That through really

:14:49.:15:00.

proclaim the top temperatures, well, there will be a cold south`west

:15:01.:15:09.

wind. Five or six Celsius. That is 41 Fahrenheit. Further ahead, wintry

:15:10.:15:12.

showers on Tuesday night and Wednesday, more rain later. A risk

:15:13.:15:18.

of severe gales on Wednesday night. Thursday looks brighter and mostly

:15:19.:15:22.

dry with sunshine. We mentioned insomnia this morning.

:15:23.:15:35.

Somebody said, Paul should make you a video of all his best bits.

:15:36.:15:46.

Well, I have got a new blog that you can read online tonight.

:15:47.:15:52.

Goodbye. Building a supermarket on the site

:15:53.:15:55.

of Louth's cattle market would "cause lasting harm to the town for

:15:56.:15:58.

a generation", according to Lincolnshire County Council. The

:15:59.:16:01.

Cattle market is used for a half a day a week at the moment and a

:16:02.:16:05.

consultation on the future of the site is underway. But any proposals

:16:06.:16:08.

to develop the land by a major supermarket chain will face

:16:09.:16:11.

opposition from the County Council even though another livestock market

:16:12.:16:14.

will be provided if the site is re`developed. Paul Murphy reports.

:16:15.:16:17.

This deli is the kind of independent specialist shop which characterises

:16:18.:16:20.

this rural market town. But that character, according to some, will

:16:21.:16:23.

disappear if a large supermarket is allowed into Louth. People from

:16:24.:16:26.

Grimsby and Lincoln come to Louth because they like the experience.

:16:27.:16:33.

Why don't they stay in Lincoln and Grimsby? Because they like to come

:16:34.:16:39.

to Louth for a day out. And this is the cattle market site which East

:16:40.:16:42.

Lindsey district council is thinking about selling. It says it's had

:16:43.:16:48.

interest from a number of supermarkets. But now the County

:16:49.:16:51.

Council has waded into the debate with a warning for the town. I have

:16:52.:16:55.

seen the devastation that supermarkets cause if they are put

:16:56.:16:58.

in the wrong place and they are not integrated properly into the whole

:16:59.:17:02.

retail offer of a place. I do not want to see Louth go the way of so

:17:03.:17:17.

many towns in this country. One concern is it that this was the age

:17:18.:17:21.

of town place. Campaigners have welcomed the County Council's

:17:22.:17:23.

intervention. We've been very heartened by Colin Davie's comments.

:17:24.:17:31.

He's clearly taken a stand back look at this and said, look, there's this

:17:32.:17:35.

town which is so important to the visitor experience in Lincolnshire.

:17:36.:17:38.

It's one of the jewels of the county. To protect it is a very

:17:39.:17:41.

important part of policy. No`one from East Lindsey district council

:17:42.:17:45.

was available for interview. But their spokesman said:

:17:46.:18:10.

so the council also says it will build a replacement livestock market

:18:11.:18:16.

if it goes ahead. Like all of these things, it boils down to money. This

:18:17.:18:20.

site could be worth at least ?12 million to East Lindsey district

:18:21.:18:23.

council. They'll tell you that at a time when budgets are tight, that's

:18:24.:18:29.

a lot of public services. There is much at stake in this historic town.

:18:30.:18:33.

It will all be discussed at a special council meeting later this

:18:34.:18:38.

week. Paul is back from Louth and with me now. What evidence is there

:18:39.:18:41.

to suggest that a supermarket ` should one come to Louth ` might

:18:42.:18:45.

actually benefit the town? Every town is different. The study is

:18:46.:18:50.

being done by the University of Southampton, looked at a three`year

:18:51.:19:03.

study and showed that people will go into towns as well as the retail

:19:04.:19:10.

centres. The fear in Louth is people will go to the supermarket, then not

:19:11.:19:13.

bother going into the centre of town.

:19:14.:19:17.

Thank you. Another one you might want to comment on.

:19:18.:19:23.

Thanks to everyone who got in touch with us about the Humberside Police

:19:24.:19:26.

and Crime Commissioner who says he needs an increase in the police

:19:27.:19:30.

budget. Matthew Grove wants the money residents pay for police to

:19:31.:19:34.

rise by just under two percent. The money will go towards new technology

:19:35.:19:37.

which he says will mean officers can spend more time on the streets.

:19:38.:19:41.

Plenty of responses from you on this one.

:19:42.:20:07.

Hull City are closing in on the ten wins that Manager Steve Bruce said

:20:08.:20:13.

they needed to stay in the Premier League. They head into tomorrow's

:20:14.:20:16.

match with Southampton after taking a seventh victory at Sunderland. Our

:20:17.:20:24.

sports reporter Simon Clark explains how the Tigers' multi`million pound

:20:25.:20:27.

strike force has turned around their fortunes. Smiles for Steve Bruce. He

:20:28.:20:39.

has now done the double over them. He was helped by another Sunderland

:20:40.:20:43.

red card, this time handed out to Wes Brown. Tom Huddlestone couldn't

:20:44.:20:45.

capitalise. Soon after, the impressive Shane Long could. Long

:20:46.:20:49.

might have had a second. The post to Sunderland 's rescue. Hull City paid

:20:50.:20:52.

close to ?15 million in the transfer window, a mind`boggling amount for

:20:53.:20:57.

this club and this is what it buys. Jelavic scoring his first to add to

:20:58.:21:00.

Long 's earlier strike and that's the Tigers up to 27 points. Still

:21:01.:21:08.

only four above the drop zone but seemingly heading in the right

:21:09.:21:11.

direction before tomorrow's match with Southampton. They have done

:21:12.:21:27.

fantastically well. It helped spirit enormously. Southampton lost the

:21:28.:21:47.

weekend. It was a learning curve for us. Hopefully, we can build on that

:21:48.:21:52.

and it will be a different story this time round. We have got a few

:21:53.:21:59.

new players in. We expect a different outcome. Steve Bruce did

:22:00.:22:04.

not mince his words today, saying that Southampton are the best team

:22:05.:22:07.

in the Premier League outside the traditional elite, a measure of how

:22:08.:22:12.

hard things might be tomorrow. If the Tigers were to win, I will be

:22:13.:22:25.

eight victories this season. Scunthorpe United remain second in

:22:26.:22:29.

League One after a draw with leaders Chesterfield. Leading striker Sam

:22:30.:22:33.

Winnall put the Iron ahead with a shot at close range but a second

:22:34.:22:36.

half penalty was enough to give the visitors a point which keeps them

:22:37.:22:41.

top of the table. Hull FC chairman Adam Pearson has

:22:42.:22:45.

been outlining his ambitions for the club ahead of the new season. Hull,

:22:46.:22:51.

who defeated Hull Kingston Rovers in one of their pre`season matches,

Catalan Dragons at the KC Stadium on Friday night. I did not really think

:22:59.:23:06.

there was enough discipline in the squad last year with regard to

:23:07.:23:16.

training and particular standards. I have been very impressed with what

he has done. I could not asking to settle into the job better.

Lincolnshire skier Jade Etherington has told Look North she's hoping for

:23:40.:23:43.

a podium`finish at the Paralympics. The 22`year`old began skiing on

:23:44.:23:46.

family holidays ` and has now been selected to represent Team GB in

:23:47.:23:50.

four events at Sochi. She has less than 5% vision in each eye ` so

:23:51.:23:54.

needs a guide to help her compete. Gemma Dawson has been to meet her.

:23:55.:24:01.

Speeding down the slopes one after another. Watching it, it's hard to

:24:02.:24:08.

believe that Jade ` in the orange hat ` is partially sighted. So she

:24:09.:24:12.

relies on Caroline in front to guide her around the course. She wears

:24:13.:24:22.

black so I can see her in contrast to the snow. In our helmets, we have

:24:23.:24:28.

Bluetooth headset and can talk to each other. My site was pretty

:24:29.:24:32.

stable when I was younger. Ever since I was 17, I started to lose my

:24:33.:24:37.

site. That is when I got into skiing, and it really helped me cope

:24:38.:24:42.

with the sight loss, and it was a silver lining.

:24:43.:24:45.

Today, Jade's been doing some final interviews in Lincoln. Before

:24:46.:24:47.

heading to a holding camp tomorrow, where she'll prepare to compete in

:24:48.:24:56.

four events in Sochi. My aim has always been the sodium `` podium in

:24:57.:25:05.

Sochi. I can't believe it is nearly here. I remember when it was 3000

:25:06.:25:10.

days away and now it is 25. I have always claimed to be on the podium,

:25:11.:25:13.

no matter what colour. Yesterday, Team GB picked`up their

:25:14.:25:16.

first medal at the Winter Games. Jenny Jones, here taking bronze in

:25:17.:25:22.

the slope style snowboarding event. Jade's now hoping for a similar

:25:23.:25:24.

result. This afternoon, she caught up with

:25:25.:25:28.

two of her sisters in Lincoln. And they couldn't be prouder. It is

:25:29.:25:41.

exciting hearing about the place she has been to. Method of a bit jealous

:25:42.:25:46.

but it is really good. I am public to cry, but I will feel proud of

:25:47.:25:49.

her. She has achieved something amazing. She is representing Great

:25:50.:25:54.

Britain. She should be proud. So now there's just time for a few

:25:55.:25:58.

final practice runs before Jade and Caroline compete. Incredible. We

:25:59.:26:14.

wish Jade well. I'm sure she. We wish Jade all the best.

:26:15.:26:20.

Let's get a recap of the national and regional headlines.

Thousands of homes are at risk in the Thames Valley.

:26:25.:26:30.

There is a call to regulate free meals and food banks to stop some

:26:31.:26:32.

people from taking advantage. Response on the subject of food

:26:33.:26:52.

banks. Thanks for the messages. Paul says, I think genuine people who

:26:53.:27:06.

need the food bank... Sally says, I am a professional. We do not just

:27:07.:27:12.

hand out vouchers. Somebody else says, if people have a mobile phone,

:27:13.:27:16.

they should not be entitled, because if they can afford a phone, they

:27:17.:27:22.

should afford food. Bridget says, there are genuine cases where people

:27:23.:27:26.

need help, but many abuse the system. Beryl says, people who

:27:27.:27:33.

attend food banks are given food for only three days and put in touch

:27:34.:27:37.

with the correct agency according to their needs. Thank you for those.

:27:38.:27:42.

Have a nice evening. Goodbye. # I tremble
