reputation enhanced. That's it. Starting on BBC Two now,

:00:00.3:59:59

Jeremy Paxman asks Good evening. There are concerns

:00:00.:00:11.

that some people are taking advantage of food banks and free

:00:12.:00:16.

meal services in Hull. Many are independently run by small groups or

:00:17.:00:19.

churches and rely on people's honesty to take only what they need.

:00:20.:00:22.

Now charities are being encouraged to work together and share

:00:23.:00:25.

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

:00:26.:00:29.

Walton reports. A fresh bowl of steaming soup. A

:00:30.:00:38.

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

:00:39.:00:41.

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

:00:42.:00:48.

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

:00:49.:00:52.

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

:00:53.:00:55.

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

:00:56.:00:59.

some are taking advantage of that kindness visiting different

:01:00.:01:02.

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

:01:03.:01:09.

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

:01:10.:01:13.

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

:01:14.:01:18.

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

:01:19.:01:24.

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

:01:25.:01:27.

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

:01:28.:01:31.

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

:01:32.:01:35.

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

:01:36.:01:39.

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

:01:40.:01:42.

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

:01:43.:01:46.

official way. That is already being done at some places. Hull food bank

:01:47.:01:53.

is part of the Trussell Trust, a network of 400 centres across the

:01:54.:01:56.

country. It says size gives it influence and allows it to work with

:01:57.:02:00.

a wide range of health and social workers who identify those genuinely

:02:01.:02:03.

in need. But others believe there are benefits to a more informal

:02:04.:02:06.

approach. This church runs a small daily drop`in meal and food bank

:02:07.:02:10.

service. It stops abuse by getting to know people first. We don't

:02:11.:02:13.

advertise the fact there is a food bank at Saint Hilda's. People know

:02:14.:02:18.

about it because this church is in the middle of the community,

:02:19.:02:21.

everybody knows where it is. People who have been helped by the church

:02:22.:02:30.

put the word around. While different groups vary in their approach to

:02:31.:02:33.

tackling food poverty, they do all agree that demand for their service

:02:34.:02:37.

is increasing so it's important to have a debate on how the system can

:02:38.:02:42.

be improved. A county council decision that could

:02:43.:02:45.

see some Lincolnshire libraries run by volunteers, is to be challenged

:02:46.:02:56.

in the High Court. The campaign group, Save Lincolnshire Libraries,

:02:57.:02:59.

has lodged legal papers which could force a judicial review. The

:03:00.:03:02.

authority says it has to save one and a half million pounds and

:03:03.:03:05.

insists it's acting lawfully. Building a supermarket on the site

:03:06.:03:08.

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

:03:09.:03:11.

a generation," according to county councillors in Lincolnshire. East

:03:12.:03:13.

Lindsey district council is consulting on the future of the

:03:14.:03:16.

site, which could be worth ?12 million. A decision will be made

:03:17.:03:26.

later this year. I have seen the devastation supermarkets cause if

:03:27.:03:31.

they are putting the wrong place. I do not want to Louth going the way

:03:32.:03:35.

so many towns in this country have gone.

:03:36.:03:38.

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

:03:39.:03:42.

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

:03:43.:03:46.

France. It's hoped the event will inspire more of us to get on our

:03:47.:03:50.

bikes. But figures show that there has been a sharp rise in the number

:03:51.:03:53.

of accidents involving cyclists in the Yorkshire and Humber area since

:03:54.:03:57.

2009. Jake Zuckerman is in Hull this evening. Jake, how dangerous are our

:03:58.:03:59.

roads? According to the most recent

:04:00.:04:01.

statistics for road casualties the number of cyclists being killed or

:04:02.:04:04.

seriously injured in Yorkshire and Humber rose by nearly a third. In

:04:05.:04:13.

2009, 199 adult cyclists were killed or seriously injured. In 2012, that

:04:14.:04:16.

figure had risen to 256. That's a 29% increase. Of course, more people

:04:17.:04:21.

are cycling now, but campaigners say numbers won't increase further

:04:22.:04:34.

unless roads are made safer. David Noble knows every lump and pump in

:04:35.:04:54.

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

:04:55.:04:58.

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

:04:59.:05:02.

sooner take a route that's 24 miles, and using the cycle track cuts time

:05:03.:05:05.

off your journey. But when it comes to cost`effectiveness, when you're

:05:06.:05:08.

replacing ?30 tyres and ?60 wheels every day, obviously going the

:05:09.:05:11.

longer way is the cheapest route. This cycle shop in the city says

:05:12.:05:14.

they're repairing more bikes than ever before, something they blame on

:05:15.:05:17.

poorly`maintained roads. We're seeing a lot of buckled wheels,

:05:18.:05:20.

broken spokes, punctures, torn tyres, bent forks ` people having

:05:21.:05:23.

accidents and going over the bike because of pot holes. Hull has one

:05:24.:05:26.

of the highest numbers of cyclists for a UK city, and in 2011, it was

:05:27.:05:31.

named as one of Britain's top cities for cyclists. With events like the

:05:32.:05:34.

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

:05:35.:05:38.

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

:05:39.:05:41.

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

:05:42.:05:44.

improve safety. Our surveys have shown that 60% of people who don't

:05:45.:05:48.

ride a bike have said they would if they felt safer, so the latent

:05:49.:05:51.

demand is absolutely enormous, and the potential good that can do our

:05:52.:05:55.

country is also enormous. In Hull, a cycling action plan is in place

:05:56.:05:58.

which aims to encourage more of us to take up the sport, but

:05:59.:06:02.

campaigners say that won't happen if cycle paths are left like this. If

:06:03.:06:05.

those problems can be overcome, it could have an affect on lots of

:06:06.:06:11.

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

:06:12.:06:15.

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

:06:16.:06:30.

A very unsettled day. It will be brighter with wintry showers in the

:06:31.:06:40.

afternoon. Icy patches on untreated surfaces, and a fairly widespread

:06:41.:06:47.

ground Frost. We're off to a frosty but drive starts tomorrow morning.

:06:48.:06:57.

Cloud will increase. The afternoon brightens up with sunny spells and a

:06:58.:07:00.

scattering of showers. There may be some snow. Top afternoon

:07:01.:07:06.

temperatures, five or six degrees. That's the forecast.

:07:07.:07:09.

The Superleague Show returns to BBC One tonight. In the first programme

:07:10.:07:14.

of the new series, Hull FC chairman Adam Pearson will be outlining his

:07:15.:07:18.

ambitions for the club ahead of the new season. That's at 11.20 on BBC

:07:19.:07:22.

One. That's all from the late team. Look North is back tomorrow at 6.25.

:07:23.:07:24.

Bye for now. Good evening. You have my permission

:07:25.:07:43.

to complain about too many repeats with the British weather at the

:07:44.:07:47.

moment because yet again it looks as though our winter weather is set to

:07:48.:07:53.

continue with a repeat of last week. Sunny spells and scattered showers

:07:54.:07:57.

today and this is the next area of low pressure pushing in from the

:07:58.:08:04.

west. It influences our weather for the rest of the week. More rain to

:08:05.:08:08.

come and gales and severe gales to come. Ice is a possible risk. That

:08:09.:08:16.

means a cumulative total perhaps or 40-70 millimetres and that is an

:08:17.:08:24.

extra two to three inches. It will exacerbate the flooding we have

:08:25.:08:28.

already got across England at the moment. The cloud, wind and rain is

:08:29.:08:34.

already pushing in from the west. There will be a widespread frost.

:08:35.:08:41.

Ice could be a problem first thing in Northern Ireland. Snow in the

:08:42.:08:45.

hills and maybe in the North East of Scotland we could see snow at lower

:08:46.:08:49.

levels. Rain through northern England and Wales and Somerset. Some

:08:50.:08:56.

of that rain could be quite intense coupled with squally, gusty winds on

:08:57.:09:02.

exposed coasts. In the east it starts off relatively dry, but it

:09:03.:09:06.

will not be long before the wind and the rain spreads further east. Up

:09:07.:09:13.

into the North the snow showers continue on the hills, but by the

:09:14.:09:17.

end of the afternoon we could see wet snow even at lower levels. A

:09:18.:09:24.

cold day. There is a potential for some snow showers at lower levels

:09:25.:09:29.

across England and Wales on Tuesday night and into Wednesday. On

:09:30.:09:33.

Wednesday it is this area of low pressure which is the main factor in

:09:34.:09:39.

Wednesday's weather. More wet and windy weather. An early amber

:09:40.:09:45.

warning has already been issued from the South West. Severe gales are

:09:46.:09:49.

likely as we continue to see some very wet weather coming into central

:09:50.:09:55.

and southern areas. The strongest winds follow in behind those

:09:56.:10:00.

showers. In Scotland you are probably wondering what the

:10:01.:10:02.
