heading our way and wet and windy again. That is all from

:00:00.:00:07.

Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North. The headlines tonight:

:00:08.:00:13.

Marching on Parliament ` the teenagers call to lower the age we

:00:14.:00:17.

can vote A bid for government money after December's floods in Boston.

:00:18.:00:24.

If people can have sex and families, they should have the right

:00:25.:00:30.

to vote. The fishermen who say new rules are putting them out of

:00:31.:00:36.

business. Despite suffering a heart attack, the man who's determined to

:00:37.:00:44.

reach his sporting goal. He turned his life around and is an

:00:45.:00:48.

inspiration to people who do the training. A gust of 65 mph, a gusty

:00:49.:00:56.

night installed with warnings in place, join me for the latest.

:00:57.:01:06.

Good evening. They can legally smoke, dry a car, join the army and

:01:07.:01:11.

start a family. So is it time that people under the age of 18 were

:01:12.:01:14.

allowed to vote? Teenagers from East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire have

:01:15.:01:17.

joined a protest in London calling for the voting age to be lowered to

:01:18.:01:21.

16. At the moment, young people in England have to wait until they are

:01:22.:01:25.

18 to take part in elections, but some MPs including Scunthorpe's Nic

:01:26.:01:28.

Dakin want to reduce the age limit. More from our Political Editor Tim

:01:29.:01:38.

Iredale. The teenagers who marched on Parliament today have no direct

:01:39.:01:42.

say on who represents them here. Some, including 16`year`old Thomas

:01:43.:01:44.

from Hull, believe that should change. Young people in East

:01:45.:01:53.

Yorkshire should be able to vote. They are under represented and do

:01:54.:01:58.

not understand that they have the same power. They can influence the

:01:59.:02:03.

country and realise that politics plays a part in their lives. While

:02:04.:02:09.

under 18s in England can't vote under rules, 16 and 17`year`olds in

:02:10.:02:12.

Scotland will be able to vote in this year's referendum on

:02:13.:02:16.

independence. Some MPs believe the voting age should be lowered across

:02:17.:02:27.

the UK. Why not have votes at 16? As somebody who has worked with 16 and

:02:28.:02:34.

18`year`olds, my experience says they have as much sense as older

:02:35.:02:38.

people at making judgements and they can vote. But would the majority of

:02:39.:02:42.

young people use their vote? It's estimated that in last year's local

:02:43.:02:45.

elections, 32% of 18`14 year olds turned out to vote, compared with

:02:46.:02:53.

72% of over 65s. I asked college students in Goole whether they

:02:54.:02:56.

wanted to see the voting age lowered? The way that teenagers are

:02:57.:03:05.

acting in society, putting how the country runs into their hands, it

:03:06.:03:11.

will go downhill. I think we should decide what happens in our local

:03:12.:03:15.

community. Why'd you not want to vote? I am too young, really. It

:03:16.:03:23.

should stay at 18 years old. Labour and the Liberal Democrats are

:03:24.:03:26.

broadly in favour of lowering the voting age. But many Conservatives

:03:27.:03:29.

are against the idea. So these would`be voters may have to wait a

:03:30.:03:33.

little longer before they have their say at the ballot box. Professor Jon

:03:34.:03:41.

Tonge chaired a commission in 2009 that advised the government against

:03:42.:03:44.

reducing the voting age. He joins me now from Manchester. Good evening.

:03:45.:03:54.

But some 16`year`olds are in full time work paying taxes, don't you

:03:55.:03:58.

think they have the right to elect the politicians who will be spending

:03:59.:04:01.

their taxed earnings? The majority would not vote. Only a minority

:04:02.:04:06.

voted at the last four general elections, so those teenagers

:04:07.:04:09.

marching on Parliament would be better advised having a word with

:04:10.:04:15.

those teenagers who did not vote. The case would be easier to make if

:04:16.:04:21.

they bothered to vote. If you are 16 or 17, you cannot buy alcohol,

:04:22.:04:25.

tobacco, fireworks and you cannot serve on a jury. They can join the

:04:26.:04:32.

Army, should they not be able to hold to account those political

:04:33.:04:35.

leaders who are about to deploy them? They do not see front`line

:04:36.:04:41.

service and they need parental permission, the same as getting

:04:42.:04:47.

married. They are not full adults and are covered by a child laws. The

:04:48.:04:52.

big problem is that they would not vote and it would not be democratic

:04:53.:04:58.

to extend the franchise. The commission that I chaired, the Youth

:04:59.:05:03.

Citizenship Commission, found that every age category was against

:05:04.:05:06.

lowering the voting age and the commission found the same. Why is

:05:07.:05:16.

Labour, in particular, so supportive of the idea? Ed Miliband said they

:05:17.:05:24.

would legislate on this. It has momentum, this idea. Every political

:05:25.:05:31.

party supports the lowering of the voting age, but there is no demands

:05:32.:05:36.

among the 16 or 17`year`olds. They are divided themselves. If you look

:05:37.:05:43.

at the unpopularity of Parliament and political institutions, the one

:05:44.:05:49.

thing they like is the voting age. Four out of five of the general

:05:50.:05:55.

public agree with the voting age being 18. Thank you for joining us.

:05:56.:06:01.

Do you think 16`year`olds should get the vote because they're able to pay

:06:02.:06:05.

tax? Or do you think they lack the knowledge needed to make political

:06:06.:06:18.

decisions? It does vary, it is very different on the Isle of Man and in

:06:19.:06:34.

Jersey. In a moment... Clearing the way for a ?10 million development

:06:35.:06:44.

which could create hundreds of jobs. David Cameron's claim that money is

:06:45.:06:47.

no object when it comes to flood recovery is going to be put to the

:06:48.:06:51.

test by communities here that suffered flooding following

:06:52.:06:53.

December's tidal surge. More than a thousand homes and businesses were

:06:54.:06:57.

damaged but there are fears that the people affected may be forgotten as

:06:58.:07:00.

the focus turns to the West Country and the banks of The Thames. Jake

:07:01.:07:04.

Zuckerman has spent the day in Boston which is still recovering

:07:05.:07:07.

from the worst conditions seen in more than 50 years. This was Boston

:07:08.:07:11.

town centre little more than two months ago. The highest storm surge

:07:12.:07:15.

in living memory sent flood water cascading through streets,

:07:16.:07:23.

overwhelming homes and businesses. Today, volunteers were helping some

:07:24.:07:26.

of those affected to apply for assistance from the local charity

:07:27.:07:36.

get Boston back on its feet. What is the most urgent? A cooker, please.

:07:37.:07:39.

The organisation has raised ?11,000 pounds, which it wants to use to buy

:07:40.:07:43.

white goods and other essentials for flood victims. People like Kevin

:07:44.:07:48.

Storr, who lost almost everything. This was the kitchen, we had the

:07:49.:07:54.

freezer here. We had a Welsh dresser along here. It is kind of hard to

:07:55.:08:00.

imagine that it was a kitchen. Boston saw more than 500 properties

:08:01.:08:03.

flooded in December. While there's no exact figure Boston Borough

:08:04.:08:06.

Council says it's spent tens of thousands of pounds so far, trying

:08:07.:08:10.

to get things back to normal. In North Lincolnshire more than 300

:08:11.:08:12.

homes and businesses were damaged. The cost is expected to reach ?1

:08:13.:08:16.

million. While in Hull more than 300 properties were damaged including

:08:17.:08:19.

150 homes. Hull City Council says it's spent ?322,000 and that it

:08:20.:08:23.

doesn't expect to get much of that money back from the government.

:08:24.:08:31.

Yesterday David Cameron made this promise to flood victims. Money is

:08:32.:08:41.

no object in this relief effort. Whatever money is needed for it will

:08:42.:08:45.

be spent. Boston Borough Council plans to hold the Prime Minister to

:08:46.:08:49.

his word. It's bidding for extra money to help those affected. One

:08:50.:08:59.

example is council tax discounts and holidays, particularly where people

:09:00.:09:01.

are living in difficult conditions and some cases, people are not

:09:02.:09:08.

living in their homes. There are 150 families who are not in their

:09:09.:09:14.

houses. Here in Boston they are still clearing up after December's

:09:15.:09:18.

flooding and the community is still rallying around. People are still

:09:19.:09:24.

concerns that their plight may be overlooked. `` concerned. High winds

:09:25.:09:34.

have caused problems across East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire this

:09:35.:09:36.

afternoon and conditions could get worse this evening. Our reporter

:09:37.:09:39.

Amanda White joins me now. How bad have things been? The winds have

:09:40.:09:44.

been felt the most on the coast this afternoon. There were gusts of 75

:09:45.:09:47.

miles per hour in Holbeach and 67 miles per hour at Wainfleet near

:09:48.:09:52.

Skegness. Just up the road 1500 homes lost power at Burgh le Marsh

:09:53.:09:56.

near Skegness at lunchtime. They all had power restored within two hours.

:09:57.:10:03.

Further north a woman hurt her head after a number of trees fell on a

:10:04.:10:09.

van and a car in Grimsby. And also in Grimsby fire fighters had to

:10:10.:10:13.

dismantle a chimney that was swaying on a Grimsby rooftop before it

:10:14.:10:23.

collapsed. We have heard tonight's passenger sailing from Hull to

:10:24.:10:28.

Rotterdam has been delayed. It was due to leave at 8:30pm but will now

:10:29.:10:35.

leave at midnight. Your local BBC Radio station will have more

:10:36.:10:38.

information. And Paul Hudson will be here in a few minutes with a full

:10:39.:10:41.

weather forecast for the next 24 hours. A group of Lincolnshire

:10:42.:10:45.

farmers are raising money for people flooded in Somerset. They are part

:10:46.:10:48.

of a group on Twitter called Club Hectare, and they say they've raised

:10:49.:10:51.

hundreds of pounds so far. They've also arranged to send straw and food

:10:52.:10:55.

to farmers in the South West of England. Humberside Police and Crime

:10:56.:11:00.

Commissioner Matthew Grove has confirmed that people living in the

:11:01.:11:03.

force area will pay nearly two percent more for policing from

:11:04.:11:07.

April. Mr Grove says the rise will help protect some jobs and allow

:11:08.:11:10.

investment in new technology. He's pressing ahead despite opposition

:11:11.:11:16.

from the Police and Crime Panel. An inquiry looking into the proposed

:11:17.:11:18.

Lincoln Eastern bypass has finished today. Highways and planning

:11:19.:11:22.

officers have been hearing people's objections to parts of the planned

:11:23.:11:25.

road. It's hoped the road will ease congestion in the city. Fishermen

:11:26.:11:39.

say new rules being enforced on the East Coast will put them out of

:11:40.:11:42.

business and damage the local tourist industry. Changes are being

:11:43.:11:46.

made to the way sea fish can be caught, which the Environment Agency

:11:47.:11:49.

says will make fishing more sustainable. But those affected say

:11:50.:11:52.

the rules are unworkable and will destroy their livelihoods. Kate

:11:53.:11:56.

Sweeting reports... They've made their living out of the sea for

:11:57.:12:00.

decades. Shaun Wingham catches the fish and his wife Penny sells it in

:12:01.:12:04.

her shop. But they say if new fishing rules are imposed, their

:12:05.:12:11.

livelihood will be lost. It will put a lot of people out of business. It

:12:12.:12:18.

is very sustainable and it has been going on for years, everything has

:12:19.:12:22.

been working fine, and now they want to put the rules in, which they have

:12:23.:12:28.

no right to do. These pictures show the method Shaun uses to catch

:12:29.:12:31.

things like sea bass. The nets are left overnight for the fish to swim

:12:32.:12:39.

into. The new rules mean he'd have to stay by those nets at all times,

:12:40.:12:44.

something Shaun says is impossible. What they are asking us to do is

:12:45.:12:51.

unworkable and unreasonable. And without the fish that Shaun catches,

:12:52.:12:54.

there'd be nothing to sell in the shop. It would put us out of

:12:55.:12:59.

business, we would struggle. We would struggle terribly, especially

:13:00.:13:03.

in the summertime. We would not be here. And if this type of fishing is

:13:04.:13:07.

lost there would be a wider impact. David Nowell runs the restaurant at

:13:08.:13:10.

Tickton Grange in Beverley and says locally caught fish is a big pull

:13:11.:13:18.

for customers. Quality is the issue, and the local source is very

:13:19.:13:22.

important to us, it is what the menus are all about. We would have

:13:23.:13:27.

to completely rethink its if we lost the ability to source locally. In a

:13:28.:13:33.

statement the Environment Agency told us: It's a position which has

:13:34.:13:50.

angered local food experts. told us: It's a position which has

:13:51.:13:57.

angered local It is a box ticking exercise. The fishermen will meet

:13:58.:14:05.

with the Environment Agency on the 4th of March, in the hope they say

:14:06.:14:14.

of saving their way of life. Do you agree with the Environment Agency?

:14:15.:14:20.

If you are a fisher man do you have concerns about getting fresh fish?

:14:21.:14:28.

`` fishermen. If you want to get in touch with us, here is the e`mail

:14:29.:14:37.

address. Thank you for watching, it is good to have you. Still ahead

:14:38.:14:40.

tonight: the mist chances which saw the Tigers drop down the premier

:14:41.:14:51.

league. `` the missed chances. After a suffering a heart attack we meet

:14:52.:14:55.

the man whose turned his life around ` to run the London Marathon. It is

:14:56.:15:02.

6:45pm, keep the photographs coming in. This is Bridlington South Shore

:15:03.:15:11.

by Jean Button. A great picture, thank you for that, Jean. Let's get

:15:12.:15:20.

the weather details from Paul. A wild night to come across

:15:21.:15:23.

Lincolnshire and Yorkshire. The strongest winds have been along the

:15:24.:15:33.

coast. The strongest winds have been 75 mph but they have eased a little

:15:34.:15:38.

bit. They will pick back up over the next few hours so there is a warning

:15:39.:15:43.

in place for widespread gales and gusts of 60 to 70 mph, possibly

:15:44.:15:49.

higher than that in exposed places. A deep area of low pressure which

:15:50.:15:54.

you can see with these tight isobars. They will open out a bit so

:15:55.:16:01.

a better day tomorrow. This will bring more wins later on Friday. You

:16:02.:16:06.

can see this, look at that, sweeping its way across this. Now we are

:16:07.:16:14.

looking to the West as the winds picked up once more. Widespread

:16:15.:16:18.

gales developing, and showers as well which may turn wintry later

:16:19.:16:26.

tonight. They tend to ease, though. Temperatures are around two Celsius,

:16:27.:16:33.

36 Fahrenheit. The sun will rise in the morning at 7:26am. Still windy

:16:34.:16:44.

tomorrow but we will have lost the severe gales. A strong

:16:45.:16:47.

south`westerly which will blow some gales in from the west. The showers

:16:48.:16:53.

could gather across the far north of the area. Some of those showers

:16:54.:16:58.

could be wintry. Let's look at the top temperatures, coming in at six

:16:59.:17:05.

Celsius. Warnings in place for severe gales in the next few hours.

:17:06.:17:11.

Thank you, Paul. More than 200 jobs could be created in Immingham after

:17:12.:17:14.

Tesco announced that it had agreed to build a store in the town. The

:17:15.:17:17.

?10 million development at the Kennedy Way shopping centre has

:17:18.:17:20.

finally got under way, after many thought it would never happen. Simon

:17:21.:17:34.

Spark reports. The centre of this town has started to change. The

:17:35.:17:37.

Kennedy Way shopping centre has begun its multi`million pound

:17:38.:17:43.

face`lift, and the smiling faces are as much relieved as happy. Even up

:17:44.:17:49.

till last week it was not happening. In till we saw the fencing going

:17:50.:17:56.

up, we thought that. There have been planning and development issues, a

:17:57.:18:01.

lot of things behind the scenes. Let's look forwards and make it

:18:02.:18:05.

right for the future. It is going to be of great project. The rain may be

:18:06.:18:10.

pouring the fact that the safety fencing is up and the demolition has

:18:11.:18:15.

begun will be a ray of sunshine for many people here. Some feared that

:18:16.:18:20.

this day would never come but the whole area will now be transformed

:18:21.:18:26.

before the end of the year. The plans are already up here, our first

:18:27.:18:33.

glimpse of the change ahead. There are going to be 40,000 square feet

:18:34.:18:43.

built. Now it has started, how people feeling? For Immingham,

:18:44.:18:53.

especially, being able to get to Tesco's, will be great. Any

:18:54.:19:04.

supermarket... It is good. They are stores that attract people so

:19:05.:19:07.

wherever they are they will attract people. It has been a long time

:19:08.:19:12.

coming, the sooner the better. Not only will it improve the look, there

:19:13.:19:18.

will be 200 jobs and hopefully, further investment in the future.

:19:19.:19:26.

We've had a big response to the story about NHS plans to store

:19:27.:19:30.

medical records on a new, single database. The NHS insists the system

:19:31.:19:33.

will be secure, but East Yorkshire MP David Davis says it's too risky

:19:34.:19:37.

as the Department of Health has a poor record for keeping data safe.

:19:38.:19:41.

Thanks for all your calls and emails on this one. Ian in Horncastle has

:19:42.:19:48.

had several medical problems and says:

:19:49.:19:57.

on this one. Ian in Horncastle has John in Hull disagrees: Stamford

:19:58.:20:26.

gave us a call from Burstwick: Hull City came off second best against

:20:27.:20:29.

Southampton in their latest Premier League encounter.

:20:30.:20:33.

The Tigers lost 1`0 but it was a costly night in more ways than one.

:20:34.:20:36.

Here's our sports reporter Simon Clark. The signs that this would not

:20:37.:20:40.

be Hull City's night appeared quite early. Defender Paul McShane was

:20:41.:20:46.

stretchered off with a serious ankle injury. Steve Bruce had to

:20:47.:20:48.

re`organise and that handed the initiative to the opponents. Hull

:20:49.:20:52.

City still had chances, Shane Long with this chance. But into the

:20:53.:20:58.

second half Southampton made their superiority tell with this goal

:20:59.:21:05.

after an hour. And it could have been worse. Former Scunthorpe United

:21:06.:21:10.

player Jack Cork so near. 1`0 it finished and no complaints from the

:21:11.:21:20.

Tigers. We kept possession too cheaply, in my opinion. We went too

:21:21.:21:25.

long with the strikers. We kept giving the ball back to Southampton.

:21:26.:21:29.

They enjoyed possession and they have three or four gifted

:21:30.:21:34.

footballers, and on that performance they will have a wondrous career.

:21:35.:21:38.

The result leaves the Tigers perilously close to the relegation

:21:39.:21:40.

zone despite victory at Sunderland on Saturday. It's the tightest

:21:41.:21:44.

battle for years. We have just got to worry about ourselves. We had a

:21:45.:21:50.

good result at Sunderland but a disappointing one tonight. We need

:21:51.:21:53.

to keep positive and picked points up where we can. We knew it was not

:21:54.:21:59.

an easy league. It is the best league in the world. Steve Bruce

gets respite for the League with a Monday trip to Brighton in the FA

Cup. Australian Aaron Finch who won the Man of the Series award joins

:22:17.:22:22.

the club. Yorkshire's captain believes it is a fantastic coup. He

:22:23.:22:29.

had a fantastic one day 2020`macro series for Australia. That someone

:22:30.:22:39.

on board like that is very special. Former prop Gareth Carvell has

:22:40.:22:42.

re`joined Hull FC after five years away. The thirty two`year`old prop

:22:43.:22:45.

will be in the squad to play Catalan at the KC Stadium on Friday. Carvell

spent time at Warrington and Bradford between his two Hull

spells. Paralympic wheelchair sprinter Jamie Carter from Market

Rasen has been at a school today trying to youngsters involved in

sport. The 17`year`old, who took part in London 2012, shared his

:23:13.:23:16.

story with pupils at Witham St Hughs Primary in Lincoln. He also

:23:17.:23:19.

encouraged the children to set themselves a challenge for Sport

:23:20.:23:21.

Relief. It is massively important to raise awareness of sport, and be

:23:22.:23:24.

able to fund them and allow them to do what they want to do. You can

:23:25.:23:28.

take part in Sport Relief which takes place next month. If you want

:23:29.:23:32.

to get involved you can go to the Sport Relief website. The address is

:23:33.:23:35.

on screen now. A runner from Hull who had a heart attack in 2012 is

Popplewell has been given the all clear to take part in the challenge

and says he won't let his health scare stop him from taking part in

one of country's biggest sporting events. Jo Makel has been to meet

him. This is warrior training. It's tough, it's intense and it's all the

:23:59.:24:02.

more remarkable that Lee is doing it. Because just 15 months ago he

:24:03.:24:05.

was in hospital after a heart attack. I went out for a run but I

:24:06.:24:15.

started getting chest pains, and I thought it was indigestion. I tried

:24:16.:24:22.

turning it off but after 500 metres, it spread to my arms and they felt

:24:23.:24:26.

like they were in vices, and I thought it was something serious.

:24:27.:24:30.

Before his attack he'd lost about four stone in weight and had started

:24:31.:24:34.

to get fit. He feels sure if he'd still been in this shape before his

:24:35.:24:38.

fitness regime, the outcome may not have been so good. Now he trains

:24:39.:24:44.

nearly every day. As you hate, sync your hips! Former Hull KR player

Iain Morrison puts his though his paces. He has followed the advice of

:24:49.:24:56.

medical professionals, he could have easily pulled on his slippers and

dressing gown and polls the curtains shot, and that would've been him for

the rest of his life. `` shut. Lee's raising money for the RNLI. Having

:25:09.:25:10.

completed the Bridlington half marathon last October, he's now

:25:11.:25:13.

entering the London Marathon, raising money for the RNLI. I

:25:14.:25:16.

remember watching it and being overwhelmed by people's efforts and

:25:17.:25:21.

seeing young lads coming out from Afghanistan and Iraq and is see them

:25:22.:25:28.

doing it, and I thought I would never be able to do that. It is kind

:25:29.:25:32.

of something I set myself as a challenge. The marathon's in April.

:25:33.:25:36.

So for now it's back to the warrior training. But getting back his

:25:37.:25:44.

health is a battle he's already won. A great story, we wish him well.

:25:45.:25:47.

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

:25:48.:25:52.

office has issued its first ever read warning for the winter as for

sunshine but a few wintry showers are possible. I have just heard that

:26:11.:26:25.

the Ouze Bridge is closed on the M 62 to all vehicles. A response on

:26:26.:26:34.

the question of voting. Sarah says, I did not have a good understanding

:26:35.:26:39.

of politics at 16 to be able to vote. If we have the rights to start

:26:40.:26:48.

a family at 16, why can we not vote? Surely starting a family is a bigger

:26:49.:26:52.

responsibility than voting for something we would like to see

:26:53.:26:57.

happen. Paul says, I do not think they have the political knowledge

:26:58.:27:04.

until adult hood. Matt says that the professor does not know what he is

talking about. I am 16, Peter, and I would vote. Give us the opportunity.

This is from Abbey: I am a politics student and I think we should focus

:27:17.:27:21.

on getting more 18 to 24`year`olds to vote before lowering it earlier.

:27:22.:27:31.

Bunty says: The most difficult decision a 16`year`old makes is

:27:32.:27:34.

which fast food restaurant to use that date, no matter which political

:27:35.:27:38.

party should rule the country! Hanky for those. Join me tomorrow. Siewert
