A reminder of our main story. Thousands of protest to remain in

:00:00.:00:00.

Independence Square tonight, Hello, good evening. The headlines

:00:00.:00:07.

from BBC Look North this Friday night: Councillors in Lincolnshire

:00:08.:00:12.

vote to give themselves a 23% pay rise.

:00:13.:00:27.

It is a scandal. They should not have done it, they should not have

:00:28.:00:29.

had the power to do it. Calls to restrict the size of

:00:30.:00:33.

caravan parks ` claims they put too much strain on services.

:00:34.:00:36.

The bird that anglers want culled ` they say they're taking all the fish

:00:37.:00:39.

from an East Yorkshire river. The FA Trophy ` can Grimsby Town

:00:40.:00:43.

reach Wembley for the second year running?

:00:44.:00:48.

The feel good factor ` sunny weather comes to East Yorkshire and

:00:49.:00:52.

Lincolnshire. But, will it continue over the

:00:53.:00:56.

course of the weekend? I will be back later in the programme with the

:00:57.:00:58.

full forecast. Councillors in Lincolnshire have

:00:59.:01:08.

voted to give themselves a pay rise at a meeting today in Lincoln. The

:01:09.:01:12.

basic allowance for each councillor will rise by more than 20% to just

:01:13.:01:17.

over ?10,000. The ruling Conservative group said the increase

:01:18.:01:20.

had been suggested by an independent panel. Labour says it's unfair when

:01:21.:01:24.

the authority has to save ?40 million in the next financial year.

:01:25.:01:38.

Caroline Bilton reports. Libraries under threat, streetlights

:01:39.:01:44.

dimmed. 1500 staff posts at the Council axed. These proposals will

:01:45.:01:48.

have a devastating impact. All reason for protests in recent years,

:01:49.:01:54.

because of belt tightening by the council. Today, that belt buckle

:01:55.:02:00.

went up a notch. At a full council meeting, it was announced an

:02:01.:02:04.

additional ?40 million needs to be saved this year alone. So, it came

:02:05.:02:09.

as a surprise to some that, in the same meeting, councillors voted to

:02:10.:02:16.

accept a rise in their allowances. The leader of the council currently

:02:17.:02:18.

receives an allowance of just over ?20,000. That will rise to ?32,000.

:02:19.:02:26.

That is an increase of 56%. The basic allowance received by most

:02:27.:02:30.

councillors is around ?8,000, which will rise to just over ?10,000, an

:02:31.:02:37.

increase of 23%. The council says these changes will bring their

:02:38.:02:40.

allowances in line with other organisations. But, when thousands

:02:41.:02:44.

needs to be saved from the council's budget, is it the right

:02:45.:02:49.

time to accept a rise? We have decided to accept the

:02:50.:02:52.

recommendations and it is a matter for the individual counsellor what

:02:53.:02:56.

they do. I do understand why people in these difficult times, with

:02:57.:02:59.

households on tight budgets, staffing reducing here, as leader it

:03:00.:03:04.

is my own personal circumstances, and I think at this time I will not

:03:05.:03:11.

be taking the recommended rise. Each council will now decide whether to

:03:12.:03:16.

take the increase. There are people in Lincolnshire who are struggling

:03:17.:03:19.

to survive, to find money for food and to heat their homes, they will

:03:20.:03:24.

not understand what has happened. I take it you will not be accepting

:03:25.:03:28.

your rise? Everyone has to make their own decisions. It is up to

:03:29.:03:33.

individuals, it is not up to me. Will you be taking yours? I have no

:03:34.:03:40.

ideas but the macro idea. It is extreme, given the current status of

:03:41.:03:44.

the economy and lots of peoples wages have not increased. It is

:03:45.:03:52.

extreme. I think those who are our leaders need to lead. Despite tough

:03:53.:04:01.

times ahead, the council did vote to freeze council tax for a fourth year

:04:02.:04:05.

running. But, it is unlikely this will be the topic of conversation

:04:06.:04:08.

around dinner tables tonight in Lincolnshire.

:04:09.:04:13.

Joining me now from Westminster is Dia Chakravarty from The Taxpayers'

:04:14.:04:17.

Alliance. This is effectively a ?2,000 pay rise. How will the

:04:18.:04:20.

taxpayers of Lincolnshire be feeling tonight.

:04:21.:04:27.

It does sound ridiculous. When was the last time when many of the

:04:28.:04:30.

residents of Lincolnshire managed to get that sort of pay rise West

:04:31.:04:38.

remarked that my? . In the private sector, pay is not that great at the

:04:39.:04:46.

moment. Public sector people will have had their pay frozen or even

:04:47.:04:51.

lost their jobs. How do you think the residents will feel when

:04:52.:04:54.

councillors give themselves an allowance rise of that stature. Some

:04:55.:04:59.

councils are in charge of budgets that are millions of pounds.

:05:00.:05:02.

Shouldn't they pay reflect that? It should reflect that, but it is a

:05:03.:05:08.

question of scale. Do they really need a 56% pay rise? It seems

:05:09.:05:12.

indecent in these times. We have also heard about streetlights being

:05:13.:05:17.

dimmed, libraries being shut down. Can this really be the best way of

:05:18.:05:20.

spending the money? If the council have so much my two spare, why are

:05:21.:05:26.

they shutting down libraries and not fixing lights? The benefit of money

:05:27.:05:31.

should go to the residents, not to the politicians. But wouldn't you

:05:32.:05:38.

attract a higher calibre of candidate if the pay was higher?

:05:39.:05:41.

That is a different sort of question, how you attract people.

:05:42.:05:46.

That is an engagement question when political parties need to reach out

:05:47.:05:51.

to the right people. But throwing out money to people already holding

:05:52.:05:57.

an office in these times cannot seem right at all. What do you think they

:05:58.:06:02.

should get? Some people would say they shouldn't get paid at all.

:06:03.:06:07.

There is a good question there. It clearly works for our magistrates

:06:08.:06:10.

who don't get paid at all. But with that sort of attitude there is or is

:06:11.:06:14.

the worry that only rich people will come forward and it will become a

:06:15.:06:19.

rich people's club. But the pay has to be decent. It has to reflect what

:06:20.:06:26.

everyone else is feeling in Lincolnshire and around the country.

:06:27.:06:34.

I don't think this decision does not reflect this. I congratulate the

:06:35.:06:37.

leader in saying he will not accept this recommendation. Let us know

:06:38.:06:41.

your thoughts on this. Do you think councillors are right

:06:42.:06:45.

to give themselves a pay rise? Or do you think that they should turn it

:06:46.:06:49.

down at a time of cuts and job losses?

:06:50.:06:51.

Perhaps you have been campaigning to save your local library, or other

:06:52.:06:55.

services, and you think the money could be better spent.

:06:56.:07:07.

In a moment on Look North: The one`off concert to ensure free music

:07:08.:07:13.

lessons for children in Hull. Concerns are being raised about the

:07:14.:07:22.

expansion of the static caravan industry on the Lincolnshire coast.

:07:23.:07:28.

The sector is worth millions to the local economy and supports thousands

:07:29.:07:31.

of jobs. But some local residents believe the holiday parks are having

:07:32.:07:35.

too big an impact in the communities where they are based. Here's our

:07:36.:07:41.

Business Correspondent Paul Murphy. Caravans for as far as the eye can

:07:42.:07:45.

see. They are the mainstay of Lincolnshire's coastal economy.

:07:46.:07:50.

Plans for 140 more of them have now approved, and the council is

:07:51.:07:59.

welcoming the continued investment. There are people who don't want

:08:00.:08:02.

change. However, we need to continuously evolve in order that we

:08:03.:08:07.

sustain what we have. It's estimated there are 25,000 caravans on the

:08:08.:08:10.

Lincolnshire coastline. In the winter months, around 42,000 people

:08:11.:08:13.

live on the coastal strip. But this can increase tenfold in the summer.

:08:14.:08:18.

A tourism economy thought to be worth more than ?500 million. Quiet

:08:19.:08:24.

today, but in the coming weeks the population here will start to surge

:08:25.:08:32.

again as the holiday`makers return. They bring with them huge spending

:08:33.:08:35.

power which spreads through shops, hotels and restaurants. But they

:08:36.:08:39.

also place pressure on everything from doctors' surgeries to the

:08:40.:08:50.

sewage system. Has this coastline reached saturation point? In the

:08:51.:08:53.

village of Chapel St Leonards, some believe it has. For the residents,

:08:54.:09:03.

they see it as disruption. It is disruption getting into Skegness on

:09:04.:09:07.

the main road, it is disruption is at the doctors surgery. They don't

:09:08.:09:09.

feel they get anything back from this. Caravans have transformed this

:09:10.:09:15.

coastline, according to this holiday park developer. You are talking

:09:16.:09:20.

about putting caps on the amount of caravans, it will stop growth and

:09:21.:09:24.

things will stagnate. Tourism and its caravans here are the biggest

:09:25.:09:28.

single job creator. Halting the growth of this sector looks like an

:09:29.:09:34.

impossible ambition. It's been confirmed that council tax

:09:35.:09:37.

in North East Lincolnshire will rise by almost 2% this year. It was voted

:09:38.:09:43.

through at a meeting last night. The council says the rise is needed

:09:44.:09:46.

because the government is giving it less money.

:09:47.:09:48.

A 32`year`old man, arrested in connection with a robbery at this

:09:49.:09:52.

post office in Bilton, east of Hull, has been released on bail.

:09:53.:09:55.

Police say the postmistress was terrified by masked men who smashed

:09:56.:09:58.

through her protective glass`screen on Monday.

:09:59.:10:04.

Lincolnshire Police say they'll have more officers in Grantham for a

:10:05.:10:07.

march by the English Defence League tomorrow. The anti`immigration group

:10:08.:10:10.

is protesting against a proposed Islamic Cultural Centre.

:10:11.:10:21.

We live in a free society and if somebody wants to peaceably protest,

:10:22.:10:25.

we have two allow them to do that. But, having allowed them to do that,

:10:26.:10:30.

it needs to be safe for people to go on with their daily business. Speak

:10:31.:10:34.

to us, we will be there, and it is business as usual in Grantham on

:10:35.:10:37.

Saturday. Anglers say they want to see more

:10:38.:10:41.

culling of a wild bird that they say is eating most of the fish that live

:10:42.:10:44.

in an East Yorkshire river. Cormorants are being blamed for

:10:45.:10:47.

taking fish from the Driffield West Beck. The river attracts anglers

:10:48.:10:51.

from around the world and there are fears that they may be put off from

:10:52.:10:54.

visiting the area. Linsey Smith reports.

:10:55.:11:00.

When it comes to catching fish, these are some of nature's most

:11:01.:11:05.

accomplished predators. In China, cormorants are even trained by

:11:06.:11:11.

fishermen. But closer to home, Driffield West Beck is looking

:11:12.:11:15.

sparse and still. It's being worked by growing flocks for decades. In

:11:16.:11:25.

the 60s, the other members of the club would think nothing of catching

:11:26.:11:30.

50 Grayling on a winters afternoon. Now on this bit of water, the

:11:31.:11:34.

preservation water, the 20 members of the club don't catch 50 Grayling

:11:35.:11:42.

in a year. Mulberry Whin, tourists from as far afield as Australia and

:11:43.:11:46.

Norway have visited to fish. They're the lucky ones. Stocking and

:11:47.:11:48.

conservation work ensures a plentiful supply here. But, outside

:11:49.:11:51.

of this exclusive spot, some anglers say a greater cull is the only way

:11:52.:12:01.

to save their hobby. Handling is an incredibly popular hobby. In a

:12:02.:12:06.

recent report, the government acknowledged there has to be a

:12:07.:12:11.

balance, they have two conserve our wild bird populations, but they also

:12:12.:12:14.

have two protect fisheries like this, which is why they give out

:12:15.:12:19.

licences for legal control. Natural England, who give out the licenses

:12:20.:12:23.

say in the last eight years they gave permission for 281 cormorants

:12:24.:12:30.

to be shot in East Yorkshire. Good morning, how are you getting on?

:12:31.:12:37.

Only 149 were. The main problem is, there are a lot of nature reserves

:12:38.:12:40.

around here where the cormorants can roost. They could be a change

:12:41.:12:47.

whereby if they had people with the right legislation who were allowed

:12:48.:12:50.

to shoot comments on nature reserves, it would reduce the

:12:51.:12:52.

numbers. The RSPB are against further culling.

:12:53.:13:09.

On the drive down I noticed a few cormorants circling. But fishermen

:13:10.:13:13.

warn swift action is needed. Or these birds will drive angling

:13:14.:13:16.

tourists to other parts of the country.

:13:17.:13:23.

Another controversial story you might have a view on. Do you think

:13:24.:13:26.

the anglers are right, and the numbers of wild birds need to be

:13:27.:13:30.

controlled to keep up fish stocks? Or should they be left alone,

:13:31.:13:33.

irrespective of the impact on tourism for the area? Do get in

:13:34.:13:37.

touch ` the contact details are on the screen now.

:13:38.:13:40.

Still to come on tonight's programme: Grimsby Town look to

:13:41.:13:44.

reach Wembley for the second year running.

:13:45.:13:46.

And, the first ice creams of the year, as sunny weather comes to East

:13:47.:13:56.

Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. And the weather is looking good in

:13:57.:14:00.

tonight's picture. It was taken by Hugh Marrows. Lovely clear sky over

:14:01.:14:03.

the church at Alvingham near Louth. Beautiful scene with some snowdrops

:14:04.:14:14.

in the foreground. Is it a coincidence that you are

:14:15.:14:18.

wearing black and white tonight? Of course!

:14:19.:14:25.

I am sure it will all become clear later in the programme. But I would

:14:26.:14:28.

like to know, it is going to be a good day for fish and chips in our

:14:29.:14:32.

hometown at the weekend? It is always a good day for fish and

:14:33.:14:36.

chips, as you know. Tomorrow does look pleasant with sunshine once

:14:37.:14:40.

again right across the region. Tomorrow is going to be the better

:14:41.:14:44.

day of the weekend. It will be the driest day and also the brightest

:14:45.:14:48.

day, with some spells of sunshine around. Windier and cloudier for

:14:49.:14:52.

Sunday. But breezy is a theme for across the week, and it will get

:14:53.:14:56.

more blustery as we head to Sunday, but even on Sunday, the isobars are

:14:57.:15:02.

quite tightly packed so a fairly brisk breeze. Today, we have had

:15:03.:15:08.

broken cloud and some sunshine. We might see a future hours later on,

:15:09.:15:16.

perhaps the odd one continuing overnight, but generally a settled

:15:17.:15:17.

night to overnight, but generally a settled

:15:18.:15:22.

night come. It will remain fairly breezy, but that will protect us

:15:23.:15:26.

from any frost. Temperatures perhaps getting back to four or five

:15:27.:15:31.

degrees. The sun will rise at 7:06am. Saturday is the better day

:15:32.:15:42.

of the weekend. There will be decent spells of sunshine. Broken cloud,

:15:43.:15:47.

mainly dry conditions, decent spells of sunshine, and the breeze, albeit

:15:48.:15:52.

fairly fresh, will still be lighter than Sunday. Not a bad day with

:15:53.:15:55.

temperatures just above average for the time of year. Some spots will

:15:56.:16:06.

reach double figures. Into Sunday, a lot more cloud spreading in from the

:16:07.:16:09.

west ahead of a weather system which will linger in the West for most of

:16:10.:16:14.

Sunday, but temperatures will be in double`figure. It will be a windy

:16:15.:16:18.

day on Sunday and eventually that rain will reach us. Turning showery

:16:19.:16:23.

on Monday. Do you think Peter will stick to the

:16:24.:16:27.

office tradition of bringing back street from his travels?

:16:28.:16:35.

You might be in luck. We will compact notes on Twitter.

:16:36.:16:43.

Young musicians from Hull are putting on a one`off performance

:16:44.:16:47.

tomorrow to raise money for children in the city to get free music

:16:48.:16:50.

lessons. It comes as government funding for Hull's Music Service is

:16:51.:16:54.

cut for the third year running. The service is now looking for more

:16:55.:16:57.

independent funding to provide free tuition and instruments for

:16:58.:16:59.

youngsters who otherwise couldn't afford them. Anne`Marie Tasker

:17:00.:17:14.

reports. JAMES BOND THEME. You'll recognise

:17:15.:17:17.

the song, but probably not those playing it. Tomorrow night, the

:17:18.:17:23.

newly formed Blackbolt Orchestra will be playing themes from TV, film

:17:24.:17:26.

and computer games to showcase young musicians' talent. We are trying to

:17:27.:17:33.

get the rock music, along with strings and orchestra in the

:17:34.:17:36.

background. It is not a new thing about it is new for Hull at the end

:17:37.:17:40.

of the day. I don't think it could have ever have happened without the

:17:41.:17:44.

talented musicians who are in Hull who are not getting heard.

:17:45.:17:47.

Tomorrow's concert will be here at the Albemarle Music Centre ` the

:17:48.:17:50.

base for music education in Hull. Since 2012, its government funding

:17:51.:17:54.

has fallen year on year ` from more than ?500,000 to around half of that

:17:55.:18:01.

in the next financial year. And that means less money for free music

:18:02.:18:04.

lessons and instruments for the city's children. So, all the

:18:05.:18:08.

musicians in the Blackbolt Orchestra have volunteered their time so that

:18:09.:18:11.

all the money raised from the show can be used to help get more

:18:12.:18:20.

children into music. When the funding gets cut from places like

:18:21.:18:23.

this, they need to pay their tutors, who then give their buses

:18:24.:18:28.

for free. Something like this point happen again if the next generation

:18:29.:18:32.

are not given the opportunity, if they don't have the funding then

:18:33.:18:34.

that is that. Over the years Hull has grown some

:18:35.:18:38.

great musical talent. The Housemartins, David Bowie's band

:18:39.:18:41.

Spiders from Mars and Everything But the Girl, to name a few. It's hoped

:18:42.:18:48.

tomorrow's show will help the next generation of musicians learn the

:18:49.:19:05.

skills to perform like this too. By this time tomorrow, Grimsby Town

:19:06.:19:08.

fans will know whether they'll be watching their team at Wembley for

:19:09.:19:12.

the second time in 12 months. The Mariners will need to overturn a 2`1

:19:13.:19:15.

deficit from the semifinal first leg against Cambridge if they are to

:19:16.:19:19.

reach a second successive FA Trophy final. But, Cup success comes at a

:19:20.:19:22.

cost as the team faces an already congested fixture list, as Simon

:19:23.:19:30.

Clark reports. They know the way, they were there

:19:31.:19:35.

last year. But, to reach Wembley, Grimsby Town need to overturn a 2`1

:19:36.:19:43.

deficit. Shooting practice was the order of the day. As the Mariners

:19:44.:19:48.

bid for a special day at a special place. That is the message we are

:19:49.:19:53.

trying to get across to the players. We are fortunate that some of us

:19:54.:19:57.

have been once, a couple of us have been more. It is not something you

:19:58.:20:02.

ever tire of. The chance of Wembley, it it is rare, so take the

:20:03.:20:09.

opportunity when it is there. This time tomorrow, Grimsby Town could be

:20:10.:20:13.

celebrating a place back at Wembley Stadium. Yet, it could be at a cost.

:20:14.:20:17.

With this cup run, and the recent bad weather, they are playing

:20:18.:20:23.

fixture catch up in the league. It might prove difficult. The current

:20:24.:20:29.

table explains all. They are victims of their own success with runs in

:20:30.:20:34.

the FA Cup and FA Trophy. Thanks to unexpected match cancellations they

:20:35.:20:38.

played five fewer league games than Salisbury and Nuneaton. Painting two

:20:39.:20:44.

games a week until the end of the season is going to be tough on some

:20:45.:20:48.

fans who frequently travel to away fixtures. The more games they have

:20:49.:20:52.

to go to, they may have to start making choices, about perhaps not

:20:53.:20:57.

affording to go to one but going to another. But buses will be full and

:20:58.:21:02.

there will be a good contingent of fans going to Southport next week.

:21:03.:21:06.

One trip the club will have no trouble filling will be a March date

:21:07.:21:11.

at Wimpey Stadium. `` Wembley Stadium.

:21:12.:21:14.

BBC Radio Humberside will have commentary of that FA Trophy

:21:15.:21:16.

semifinal on digital and online tomorrow. Kick`off at Blundell Park

:21:17.:21:21.

is at 3pm. Hull City boss Steve Bruce is

:21:22.:21:25.

chasing his 100th win as a top flight manager as the Tigers face

be looking like ourselves, and saying that he stay in the league,

they need a result here. If we can go down there and get a result, then

:23:54.:24:00.

hard for the fight. I work harder than the rest. That is

:24:01.:24:04.

how you cope with it. You train hard and prepare right. But I have had

:24:05.:24:09.

over 180 fights, so I have been doing it for 15 years. It is a

:24:10.:24:15.

boxing match and one I have prepared for. I am ready. The sunshine came

:24:16.:24:20.

out today, well for most of the day at least.

:24:21.:24:23.

For much of East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire it was a welcome break

:24:24.:24:27.

from the wind and rain. Shops, attractions, and even ice cream

:24:28.:24:30.

sellers, all made the most of the weather as people enjoyed the early

:24:31.:24:33.

spring sunshine. Amanda White was amongst them.

:24:34.:24:49.

Days like this are surely the stuff of summer holidays, not February

:24:50.:24:55.

half term? And in Cleethorpes today people were making the most of it.

:24:56.:25:06.

It has been brilliant, honestly. The sun shining on your birthday, for

:25:07.:25:10.

once. At this cafe in Pearson Park, ice creams were the order of the

:25:11.:25:17.

day. As long as they are out and about, they love it. But it is nice

:25:18.:25:21.

to come out and not need your rain cover. The first ice cream of the

:25:22.:25:26.

year, it is nice. It is nice to see the sun, get some fresh air. And

:25:27.:25:29.

it's days like this that brings visitors to Saxby House and Gardens

:25:30.:25:36.

near Market Rasen. A sunny day is fantastic because the crocuses all

:25:37.:25:40.

open up and they show their faces, and they really shine in the

:25:41.:25:45.

sunshine. The snowdrops do as well. It makes you feel more like getting

:25:46.:25:50.

out and about. My friend phoned me and said how about going out to see

:25:51.:25:54.

the snowdrops question but I said yes, that would be wonderful. And

:25:55.:25:58.

then the weather changed! It is flipping cold now! There is

:25:59.:26:05.

something about the sunshine in the morning. It makes us want to get out

:26:06.:26:09.

and enjoy the fresh air. The only day that can beat it is if, when the

:26:10.:26:14.

weather closes in, you have somewhere cosy to retreat to.

:26:15.:26:21.

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

:26:22.:26:24.

A peace deal in the Ukraine means a caretaker government within days,

:26:25.:26:28.

and it's hoped an end to the unrest. Councillors in Lincolnshire vote to

:26:29.:26:34.

give themselves a 23% pay rise. Tomorrow's weather: A dry day for

:26:35.:26:38.

most, some cloud and sunny spells. Clouding over from the west later as

:26:39.:26:41.

the breeze strengthens. Maximum temperature of nine Celsius.

:26:42.:26:54.

Lots of response on our top story about councillors pay rises. Philip

:26:55.:26:59.

says" in my opinion, it is completely unacceptable for

:27:00.:27:02.

councillors to take any pay increase while the economy is in such poor

:27:03.:27:08.

shape". Terry says, " once again we see public sector jobsworths

:27:09.:27:10.

rewarding themselves for failure. What sort of crazy system is it that

:27:11.:27:16.

allows these greedy people to vote for their own pay rises? " yet again

:27:17.:27:21.

we are not in it together, absolutely they should reject the

:27:22.:27:27.

rise". Harry says, " congratulations to the leader for rejecting his pay

:27:28.:27:31.

rise. To those who don't accept, goodbye, I will vote for less greedy

:27:32.:27:36.

people to represent us Thank you for your company tonight. ". Peter's
