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

:00:00.:00:11.

flood expert says some land beside the Humber should be abandoned to

:00:12.:00:17.

the sea. The local council says communities need protected. However

:00:18.:00:22.

small, these communities are important and we will fight to make

:00:23.:00:25.

sure they have the best defence possible. I'm live in the village of

:00:26.:00:31.

built and where woman has been left terrified following a robbery at

:00:32.:00:34.

this post office. Businesses in a Lincolnshire town are told to remove

:00:35.:00:37.

advertising boards from the streets or face legal action.

:00:38.:00:41.

And the centuries`old tradition that's under threat in a

:00:42.:00:43.

Lincolnshire village. Another mild day tomorrow. I'll be

:00:44.:00:49.

back with the rest of the details. A flooding expert says villages

:00:50.:01:04.

beside the Humber ` swamped by recent floods ` are unlikely to get

:01:05.:01:07.

improved flood defences, and some land should even have to be

:01:08.:01:12.

abandoned to the sea and rivers. Last night people in the village of

:01:13.:01:16.

South Ferriby ` where 120 homes were flooded in December ` demanded

:01:17.:01:19.

answers from the Environment Agency about when flood defences and

:01:20.:01:21.

warning systems would be upgraded, but they say they were given few

:01:22.:01:28.

assurances. Nationally, one in six properties is at risk of flooding.

:01:29.:01:32.

5,800 homes have flooded in Britain since December. Despite all the

:01:33.:01:36.

political arguments, research shows spending on flood defences has not

:01:37.:01:39.

fallen or risen significantly in the past decade. I'll be speaking to the

:01:40.:01:45.

expert in coastal flooding who says some land should be abandoned.

:01:46.:01:52.

First, Sarah Corker reports. December's tidal surge was much

:01:53.:01:55.

higher and more powerful than anyone predicted. Communities on the banks

:01:56.:01:58.

of the Humber, like South Ferriby, were flooded in a matter of minutes.

:01:59.:02:07.

We have bank would go up to the top of the village. After the storm come

:02:08.:02:10.

the questions. Will there be any money to improve defences here? For

:02:11.:02:16.

the last decade, the policy has been that they will protect properties.

:02:17.:02:23.

Communities like this one are important, and we are going to do

:02:24.:02:26.

the best we can to fight to make sure they have the best defence. In

:02:27.:02:29.

England, more than five million properties are at risk of flooding

:02:30.:02:32.

Since December 2013, flood schemes have defended more than 1.3 million

:02:33.:02:38.

homes and businesses. But there's not enough money to help everyone.

:02:39.:02:43.

Treasury rules state every pound of investment in defences must produce

:02:44.:02:52.

at least ?8 of economic benefit. The system to calculate the cash looks

:02:53.:02:57.

are a couple of things including the number of properties at risk and

:02:58.:03:01.

also the number of deprived households. Cities like Hull will

:03:02.:03:07.

always do better than smaller communities along the Humber. An

:03:08.:03:10.

issue put to the Environment Agency at a heated public meeting in South

:03:11.:03:16.

Ferriby last night. The government has made some money available

:03:17.:03:20.

straight for repairs and we are already on with those repairs.

:03:21.:03:22.

Beyond that we will have to look into the strategy to try and find

:03:23.:03:26.

out where the funding will come from. At a women's group today,

:03:27.:03:31.

residents told me they want public money shared more equally. There is

:03:32.:03:36.

more people in a tone, but I don't think they should get more

:03:37.:03:40.

protection. We all need protecting. But Silvia lives in Barton and has a

:03:41.:03:47.

different argument. They've built a terrific amount of homes down on the

:03:48.:03:51.

river bank, but there are hundreds of people down there now. You have

:03:52.:03:56.

to have a bit of sense. This has been the saviour of our town. And

:03:57.:03:59.

that's because just three miles down the road... The authorities now face

:04:00.:04:11.

tough decisions. I spoke to Professor Rob Duck who specialises

:04:12.:04:14.

in coastal flooding at Dundee University. I started by asking why

:04:15.:04:17.

he believes that some land should be abandoned? That's quite a difficult

:04:18.:04:22.

question. I think we've got to look at what we've done to land in the

:04:23.:04:26.

past, particularly land we have claimed from the sea, maybe

:04:27.:04:31.

centuries ago, that was once naturally flooded by the sea, we

:04:32.:04:34.

have to look at where it should be returned to the state it was

:04:35.:04:41.

originally in. If you live in a small village, what chance have you

:04:42.:04:45.

got of getting better protection? If you live in a small village, in a

:04:46.:04:49.

vulnerable area, it is really very difficult indeed. We've got to look

:04:50.:04:55.

at the nature of the flood protection, and that does not

:04:56.:04:59.

necessarily mean it is in bank on this. We have to look at moving to

:05:00.:05:09.

areas that were once flooded but no agricultural land is no longer

:05:10.:05:13.

flooded in order to protect small villages in these vulnerable areas.

:05:14.:05:18.

Will people who live in small places like this have to fend for

:05:19.:05:24.

themselves, have their own stack of sandbags? I think it might be that

:05:25.:05:29.

they have to fend for themselves to a certain extent but I think what

:05:30.:05:33.

they should be able to expect is better flood warning systems in

:05:34.:05:40.

place so that they are aware of when tidal surges are going to take

:05:41.:05:44.

place. It seems like Mrs versus country. `` town versus country. I

:05:45.:05:55.

hope it is not like that but clearly with big cities like Hull that need

:05:56.:05:58.

to be protected, we need to look at the nature of the land that we may

:05:59.:06:04.

perhaps return to flooding. If it is largely agricultural land it can

:06:05.:06:07.

hopefully be done with the minimum of disruption to human lives. Thank

:06:08.:06:16.

you for joining us. Should some land be abandoned if it's too expensive

:06:17.:06:20.

to protect or should we protect all homes regardless of the cost? You

:06:21.:06:21.

can e`mail us. In a moment: The Lincolnshire farmer

:06:22.:06:39.

leading the aid effort for farms flooded in the South. The death of a

:06:40.:06:42.

22`month`old girl in Hull is being treated as unexplained. She was

:06:43.:06:45.

taken by ambulance from this house in west Hull to the city's Royal

:06:46.:06:49.

Infirmary but died a short time later. A man and a woman ` both aged

:06:50.:06:53.

20 ` were arrested in connection with her death, and have been

:06:54.:06:57.

released on bail. Police say a postmistress from East Yorkshire has

:06:58.:07:00.

been left terrified after her shop was robbed by two men armed with a

:07:01.:07:04.

sledgehammer. They smashed their way through the reinforced screen that

:07:05.:07:07.

was supposed to protect her at Bilton Post Office. Leanne Brown is

:07:08.:07:19.

in Bilton, how is the postmistress? As you would expect the shutters

:07:20.:07:23.

have been down all day. Although she was not injured it could be some

:07:24.:07:30.

time before she recovers. I'm told it was two men wearing balaclavas

:07:31.:07:33.

and camouflage jacket that went into the shop with a sledgehammer and

:07:34.:07:40.

smashed on the protective glass. She had already cashed up but they left

:07:41.:07:43.

with the contents of the coin dispenser. They came away with a

:07:44.:07:50.

small amount of cash ` and left behind a frightened community. She

:07:51.:07:55.

was terrified when we got here. She is quite shaken this morning. She is

:07:56.:07:59.

not injured but they have used force to smash the glass. Everybody is

:08:00.:08:03.

surprised when something happened like this. It's left the owner of

:08:04.:08:06.

the hairdressers next door worried about the safety of her staff. I

:08:07.:08:13.

feel vulnerable. I've got young girls in here, you never know. We've

:08:14.:08:19.

just thought about it and I said make sure you keep the doors

:08:20.:08:24.

locked. Don't put yourself in that position. And for those who live

:08:25.:08:28.

here ` shock that something like this could happen in their village

:08:29.:08:31.

Police have been conducting an area search today to gather as much

:08:32.:08:35.

evidence as possible. It is scary for some people. You have to think

:08:36.:08:38.

twice about what is going on, look out for each other. It is a quiet

:08:39.:08:43.

little village. They will be devastated.

:08:44.:08:49.

They say the best thing they can do for the victim is to catch the men

:08:50.:08:56.

who did this. This is a very close`knit village and a

:08:57.:08:58.

spokesperson for the Post Office has said today, "Any robbery is not only

:08:59.:09:02.

traumatic for those involved but is also an attack on the local

:09:03.:09:05.

community ` and they're asking anyone who may have seen something

:09:06.:09:17.

to come forward. Thank you. And detectives in North Lincolnshire are

:09:18.:09:20.

trying to trace a man who's thought to be responsible for two armed

:09:21.:09:23.

robberies at the same shop. The man carrying an umbrella and small black

:09:24.:09:27.

gun went into the One Stop Shop on Eton Court in Scunthorpe last night

:09:28.:09:31.

` but left empty`handed. Two weeks ago, it's thought a man robbed cash

:09:32.:09:34.

from the same store. A new tunnel could be dug under the Humber to

:09:35.:09:38.

carry a gas pipeline to supply a large part of Britain. National Grid

:09:39.:09:41.

wants to replace the existing pipeline under the river ` which is

:09:42.:09:45.

in a 30`year`old trench that is being washed away by strong tides.

:09:46.:09:48.

Work on the tunnel between Paull and Goxhill could start in 2017.

:09:49.:09:53.

Shopkeepers are standing firm against threats to confiscate their

:09:54.:09:55.

advertising boards from outside their businesses. The town council

:09:56.:10:00.

in Stamford in Lincolnshire says signs ` which often obstruct

:10:01.:10:03.

pavements ` are dangerous and illegal. But traders say they're a

:10:04.:10:07.

vital way to attract shoppers in tough economic times. Here's our

:10:08.:10:17.

business correspondent, Paul Murphy. High streets are competitive places

:10:18.:10:20.

and for many businesses putting out the board is part of the morning

:10:21.:10:23.

routine. But here in Stamford their proliferation is dividing the town.

:10:24.:10:27.

The council wants rid of them ` businesses are furious. Ridiculous.

:10:28.:10:34.

We put something on the Facebook page and we had so much response

:10:35.:10:39.

saying how ridiculous this is. It just seems very aggressive. We would

:10:40.:10:45.

like to have a conversation about it rather than just a nasty letter.

:10:46.:10:48.

Stamford Town Council's letter says it's had numerous complaints about

:10:49.:10:51.

the increasing number of boards and other advertising clutter. It says

:10:52.:10:54.

the boards are illegally placed items in hazardous locations and

:10:55.:10:57.

warns the owners can face legal action if the boards cause an

:10:58.:11:00.

accident. The council says enforcement action could include

:11:01.:11:03.

collection and removal of the obstruction. Kathleen is partially

:11:04.:11:08.

sighted and among those who've complained ` a trip to town, she

:11:09.:11:12.

says, is like going on an obstacle course. You're frightened of running

:11:13.:11:23.

into them, because sometimes you might go down the high Street and

:11:24.:11:27.

somebody has put one out that you don't know about. Then I would not

:11:28.:11:30.

see it. Retailers now have about two weeks to get rid of their boards.

:11:31.:11:35.

None from Stamford Town Council wanted to be interviewed or give a

:11:36.:11:38.

statement. But their letter to retailers says that boards are in

:11:39.:11:41.

potential breach of the highways act and they intend to clear the

:11:42.:11:47.

streets. Local businesses accept that the law forbids obstructing the

:11:48.:11:50.

highway ` but say it is possible to use boards if everyone is sensible

:11:51.:12:03.

about it. I think the traders will cooperate. If we can agree some sort

:12:04.:12:07.

of code, then everyone would know where we stood. Then we can police

:12:08.:12:15.

ourselves. We will look into the insurance and

:12:16.:12:18.

make sure we're covered but we will stick together and if they want to

:12:19.:12:21.

take them away we're not going to let them. Revolt? Yes. Picturesque

:12:22.:12:30.

market town or not, an ugly battle could be looming. I asked retail

:12:31.:12:36.

expert Kate Hardcastle if shops gained any benefit by putting out

:12:37.:12:43.

signs. Everybody is trying to do everything they can in retail at the

:12:44.:12:46.

moment to boost sales, to attract attention, to scream to the buyer,

:12:47.:12:55.

please you as `` please use us, but one thing I can tell you if there

:12:56.:12:59.

are far better methods used by retailers that are doing wonderful

:13:00.:13:02.

jobs and wonderful results, someone like John Lewis, not relying on

:13:03.:13:10.

promotional boards. You mention there are better ways. What kind of

:13:11.:13:15.

ways? Working as a retailer, the best way to do it is not to shout in

:13:16.:13:19.

a football crowd, if that makes sense. By putting a board out there

:13:20.:13:28.

and hoping for passers`by to be attracted, it is difficult to

:13:29.:13:31.

attract an audience when they are so wait. It is better to work out who

:13:32.:13:35.

your customer is and when you have done, appealed to them in a language

:13:36.:13:40.

and communication that gets to them, via e`mail lists, social

:13:41.:13:45.

media, perhaps by doing events within the store. They work from

:13:46.:13:51.

time to time but the more there are, the more crowded the message. Has

:13:52.:13:56.

the council got this wrong? The council has sent out a very negative

:13:57.:14:01.

letter and it challenges. The retailers think they need to do

:14:02.:14:05.

something and times are hard. They need business. If the council had

:14:06.:14:10.

gone in and said obviously for health and safety reasons for

:14:11.:14:13.

somebody walking down the street, with a wheelchair or a pushchair,

:14:14.:14:16.

they have challenging things to negotiate, this is difficult, but

:14:17.:14:22.

what we can do is offer support in other ways. Then you can list the

:14:23.:14:25.

ways. You can work with the retailers. You will get a far better

:14:26.:14:30.

response than sending out a negative letter. What do you think? Get in

:14:31.:14:38.

touch. Still ahead tonight: Why Steve Bruce is unhappy about Hull

:14:39.:14:41.

City's FA Cup replay against Brighton. And the centuries`old

:14:42.:14:46.

tradition that's under threat in a Lincolnshire village.

:14:47.:14:54.

Stunning picture of the evening sky at Swanland taken by John Wharam.

:14:55.:15:05.

It has been a dry day today. It is quite nice to see after all the rain

:15:06.:15:12.

we have had. I need to get running again. I am behind on my training.

:15:13.:15:15.

You and me both. We need to practice. I have a personal best in

:15:16.:15:25.

eating chocolate. The next couple of days and not look too bad. It is not

:15:26.:15:29.

too cold out there. Moving into Thursday, it gets a bit more

:15:30.:15:33.

unsettled and windy over the course of the weekend, although it would be

:15:34.:15:36.

quite nice if there was a bit of a breeze. Tomorrow is a bit of a grey

:15:37.:15:40.

start. It will brighten up nicely through the afternoon. You can see

:15:41.:15:46.

from the pressure chart, it is not particularly breezy out there. A

:15:47.:15:50.

light breeze. You will have to wait till Thursday for it to pick up.

:15:51.:15:55.

Looking at the satellite picture, we have variable cloud, some of it is

:15:56.:16:02.

thick enough to produce showers. The showers will tend to use a way,

:16:03.:16:08.

becoming largely drive. `` die away. There will be some breaks in the

:16:09.:16:11.

cloud and we will see some patchy rain developing. The sun will rise

:16:12.:16:20.

in the morning at 7:13am, setting at 5:19pm. Tomorrow morning, bit of a

:16:21.:16:28.

grey start to the day, low cloud about but it will tend to left. The

:16:29.:16:34.

greatest risk of catching a shower is first thing this morning but it

:16:35.:16:38.

will be a dry day, brightening up nicely into the afternoon. Some

:16:39.:16:45.

bright or sunny spells. It will go up to about ten or 11 degrees.

:16:46.:16:51.

Similar values tomorrow. It will be up to 50 Fahrenheit. Feeling pretty

:16:52.:16:57.

springlike out there. As we move into Thursday, the breeze will

:16:58.:17:01.

pick`up, it will be breezy with outbreaks of rain spreading in from

:17:02.:17:06.

the west. It will get wetter as the day goes on. Blustery at the weekend

:17:07.:17:10.

with a fair few showers on Saturday. We will do a marathon. We

:17:11.:17:20.

can do it. We need to start training. See you soon. A

:17:21.:17:27.

Lincolnshire farmer has taken on the job of leading the aid effort for

:17:28.:17:31.

farmers whose land is under water in the West Country. Farmers across

:17:32.:17:34.

Britain have been sending animal feed and bedding to parts of

:17:35.:17:37.

Somerset which have been cut off for weeks. Andrew Ward from Leadenham

:17:38.:17:40.

near Grantham was asked by the government to run the relief effort.

:17:41.:17:43.

Here's our rural affairs correspondent, Linsey Smith. Carrots

:17:44.:17:52.

and hey, I welcome meal for the flood hit animals of Somerset. Much

:17:53.:17:57.

of this has been donated by farmers in Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire.

:17:58.:18:03.

Andrew Ward was directing aid to the most needed. It is absolutely tragic

:18:04.:18:08.

when you see the water and what they are having to go through. We all

:18:09.:18:12.

have water and problems in farming, it is one big risk management

:18:13.:18:16.

operation, but you cannot imagine what they are going through with the

:18:17.:18:23.

families and emotionally. Last year, the charity helps farmers affected

:18:24.:18:28.

by heavy snow in England and Wales. He was initially invited to advise

:18:29.:18:38.

government ministers but this week he has got hands`on. Seems like this

:18:39.:18:43.

went on throughout the day. Our animals are literally knee deep in

:18:44.:18:47.

their own mess. It is a godsend. Now they can have tidy bets. There was

:18:48.:18:54.

not this level of flooding years ago because water management was totally

:18:55.:18:59.

different. Do we want to feed the nation? Do we want to look after

:19:00.:19:04.

people? Are we going to forget about human beings and look after

:19:05.:19:08.

wildlife? As pumping continues, Ed Miliband was the latest politician

:19:09.:19:15.

to visit. For Andrew it is not politics but pulling together that

:19:16.:19:21.

is important. Two paintings by Yorkshire`born artist David Hockney

:19:22.:19:25.

are to go on sale. Room With A View is of Bridlington ` where the artist

:19:26.:19:28.

has a house and studio. It's been valued at between ?150,000 `

:19:29.:19:31.

?200,000. The second work called Tyger is expected to reach between

:19:32.:19:38.

?40,000 ` ?60,000. The Red Arrows have revealed a new tail fin design

:19:39.:19:41.

` to celebrate their 50th display season. The engineers ` known as the

:19:42.:19:44.

Blues ` unveiled the new`look aircraft at RAF Scampton near

:19:45.:19:47.

Lincoln. It features the union flag and is the most significant change

:19:48.:19:51.

to the colour scheme in the team's history. I always had this idea for

:19:52.:20:01.

a union Jack on the tail but it was colleague that came up with the

:20:02.:20:04.

final design and I was really impressed with it. If you look at

:20:05.:20:10.

the detail, it has the aircraft. It really captures the spirit of the

:20:11.:20:15.

past 50 years. Hull City manager Steve Bruce says it's ridiculous

:20:16.:20:18.

that UEFA has forced the club's FA Cup replay with Brighton, which is

:20:19.:20:21.

to be held next Monday. Europe's governing body doesn't want a clash

:20:22.:20:24.

with their Champions League competition. They sounded like they

:20:25.:20:32.

had plenty to celebrate but in truth their side had salvaged a replay

:20:33.:20:40.

from this game. The Championship side went ahead with this. Seconds

:20:41.:20:46.

later, Curtis Davies hit the bar, one of two chances off the woodwork.

:20:47.:20:50.

Steve Bruce must've thought the cup run was over, when five minutes from

:20:51.:20:56.

time, they equalised. Now they have a replay on Monday, as UEFA Cup band

:20:57.:21:05.

televised games as the same `` at the same time as the Champions

:21:06.:21:09.

League. I find it ridiculous. I have to tell you. Surely we could play on

:21:10.:21:14.

the same night at the Champions League. You would have thought. I

:21:15.:21:21.

think it is a UEFA rule. UEFA rules that nobody plays on the night of

:21:22.:21:25.

the Champions League. We have to take it as it is and deal with it as

:21:26.:21:31.

it comes. Those who faced the journey back to Yorkshire had

:21:32.:21:36.

something to cling onto. We didn't deserve it but they pay the fans

:21:37.:21:41.

Humberside now. She's one of this area's most successful sportswomen,

:22:16.:22:18.

and today England cricket star Arran Brindle has spoken of her decision

:22:19.:22:21.

to retire. The 32`year`old announced yesterday that she wouldn't join the

:22:22.:22:24.

team's tour of Bangladesh, and would instead focus on family and her

:22:25.:22:27.

teaching career. But, as she told Crispin Rolfe, she's enjoyed her

:22:28.:22:43.

time at the top. It was very special. Not just winning the test

:22:44.:22:53.

but scoring runs was great. Ashes victory this winter is built on the

:22:54.:23:03.

batting of Arran Brindle. For this cricketer, beating Australia home

:23:04.:23:08.

and away was her final hurrah. She has called time. It is the fact that

:23:09.:23:15.

it is 15 years. You go through life with different challenges, things

:23:16.:23:19.

that keeps you inspired. I am at that stage, with my teaching and my

:23:20.:23:27.

family. England's loss is Lincolnshire's game. She is still

:23:28.:23:33.

keen to support local talent. They have put a massive amount of sport

:23:34.:23:38.

money in. To benefit from that shows the standard that can be achieved.

:23:39.:23:45.

Not all of her achievements have been about cricket. In 2012, she

:23:46.:23:53.

carried the Olympic torch. The chances are that her tone will still

:23:54.:24:00.

carry a torch for her. `` town. They're men ` and women `

brandishing sticks, bells and handkerchiefs. Morris dancers are an

English tradition dating back 600 years. But a group near Grantham in

:24:07.:24:09.

Lincolnshire has started an urgent recruitment drive to find new

:24:10.:24:12.

dancers in time for its summer performances. Simon Spark has been

:24:13.:24:24.

along to a practice section. There is something about Morris dancing

:24:25.:24:31.

that lifts the spirit. Jolly music, jingling bells, waving handkerchiefs

:24:32.:24:40.

and rhythmic stick knocking. No wonder the appeal dates all the way

:24:41.:24:44.

back to the 15th century. When you're dancing, it feels like you've

:24:45.:24:49.

got the world at your feet. You are something else, you are a superior

:24:50.:24:56.

being. Another superior being is Ashley Jones, who talks us through

:24:57.:25:08.

one of the dancers. Then we do this. It is a strange movement. These

:25:09.:25:15.

Morris dancers have troubled minds behind the smiles. They are worried

:25:16.:25:19.

about how long they can keep their group going. As long as we have

:25:20.:25:24.

enough people to dance. To be able to dance fully through the summer we

:25:25.:25:27.

really need more people, we need younger people as well to keep the

:25:28.:25:33.

side going. To compare it with football, you need 11 players for a

:25:34.:25:38.

team, you need six dancers for a dance. They have enough at the

:25:39.:25:44.

moment but there is no new ones coming through. We are worried. It

:25:45.:25:48.

is a tradition, if you have injury or illness we cannot even turn up

:25:49.:25:54.

and do it, because we haven't got enough people. They have had one

recruit recently, Jimmy, he is now in his second week. He is learning

his robes, and sticks. In six years I might be able to do it. If you

:26:08.:26:12.

fancy a way to keep warm without the heating bills and keep fit, and you

:26:13.:26:16.

don't mind looking the part, this is it. Your new destiny, keeping a

:26:17.:26:19.

tradition alive. Let's get a reach of the national

Jenny says we live near Stamford and the boards are needed because so

many shops are down small alleyways that otherwise would not be known

signs. Hopefully they are well insured against any claims. Thanks

for getting in touch with us tonight. I shall be on the radio

tomorrow. Join me then if you can. We will have plenty more news and

weather in the late bulletin tonight. That is at 10:25pm. Get in

touch with me if you can. Goodbye.
