on the BBC News channel, with all the very latest on the dramatic

:00:00.:00:00.

day's events in Ukraine. Good evening. Lincolnshire police

:00:00.:00:17.

say a march by members of the English Defence League against a

:00:18.:00:19.

proposed Islamic Centre in Grantham was peaceful. 250 officers escorted

:00:20.:00:25.

a similar number of protesters through the town. A senior officer

:00:26.:00:29.

would not reveal the cost of policing the event.

:00:30.:00:32.

Described as an anti`Islam protest by its organisers, demonstrators

:00:33.:00:35.

were bussed in from across the country. Some here made it clear

:00:36.:00:42.

they weren't welcome. Take your prejudice away, we don't want it.

:00:43.:00:46.

Escorted by police, the English Defence League marched through

:00:47.:00:51.

Grantham town centre. We get a big centre, within two years that town,

:00:52.:00:54.

that area is dominated Muslim and forcing all the Christians out, all

:00:55.:00:59.

the Catholics out. We have no problem with the Muslim community.

:01:00.:01:05.

What we have a problem with is extremism. The fact that the people

:01:06.:01:08.

of Grantham are not being given a choice over what gets built in their

:01:09.:01:11.

town is absolutely idisgusting. It is those plans for an Islamic

:01:12.:01:15.

community centre here that prompted the march.

:01:16.:01:19.

But celebrating multiculturalism, there was also a small

:01:20.:01:25.

counterdemonstration. I do not think it was a particularly big issue.

:01:26.:01:29.

They are preaching to this group. Freedom of religion should be for

:01:30.:01:33.

everybody. The days when we used to burn people at the stake for having

:01:34.:01:37.

the wrong religion are over and we want to keep it that way. Separating

:01:38.:01:41.

the two protests a wall of police, 250 officers brought in from five

:01:42.:01:44.

police forces across the East Midlands. This is the fourth far

:01:45.:01:48.

right wing protest in the county in the last six months. It is a real

:01:49.:01:54.

challenge for us. We are able to organise it sometime in advance

:01:55.:01:58.

which helps reduce the cost but, as you have seen, we have a significant

:01:59.:02:01.

number of officers here and that will have an impact on other places.

:02:02.:02:05.

There were a few minor scuffles. It was a noisy but peaceful

:02:06.:02:09.

demonstration. The planning application for the community centre

:02:10.:02:12.

goes before the council next month and, if granted, the EDL says it

:02:13.:02:14.

will protest here again. Lincolnshire County Council has

:02:15.:02:28.

confirmed it will freeze council tax for the fourth year. The authority

:02:29.:02:33.

joins novel into and East Riding Council which are also Conservative

:02:34.:02:38.

run. In keeping 2014 bills the same as last year.

:02:39.:02:43.

Hull City have bounced back with a massive away win at Cardiff. The

:02:44.:02:50.

score was 4`nil. It was Steve Bruce's 100th win. Recent signing

:02:51.:02:57.

scored two. Hull City move up to 11th in the league. Scunthorpe

:02:58.:03:02.

United continue their run at the top of league two. They beat

:03:03.:03:06.

Portsmouth, 5`1 making them joint league leaders.

:03:07.:03:12.

Lincoln drew 1`1 to Chester and Grimsby are out of the FA Trophy and

:03:13.:03:21.

will not be going to Wembley. Cambridge were overall winners in

:03:22.:03:28.

the two legs. Luke Campbell will fight in front of a sell`out crowd

:03:29.:03:33.

tonight at the whole arena. He is looking for his fifth straight win

:03:34.:03:39.

as a professional boxer. Standing in his way is a Norfolk man.

:03:40.:03:45.

Preparations went brilliant. They couldn't have gone any better,

:03:46.:03:47.

really. We've had some great sparring. All is great. I'm in great

:03:48.:03:52.

shape and ready to put on a good show for the fans. You can't put a

:03:53.:03:56.

price on the support you get from the fans. I just hope I can keep

:03:57.:04:00.

performing and they keep coming back and watching and supporting. We will

:04:01.:04:04.

have a report from the fight on tomorrow's Look North at 620 PM. For

:04:05.:04:10.

now let us get the weather forecast with Jennifer Bartram. Hello there,

:04:11.:04:14.

good evening. For many of us it was a lovely, dry, spring`like day. But

:04:15.:04:18.

as we get into tomorrow we are going to start to see the winds

:04:19.:04:21.

increasing, gale force winds at times. That cloud is going to build

:04:22.:04:25.

from the west as we go through the night. This evening we could see

:04:26.:04:29.

some spots of rain, particularly in northern and western parts. Most

:04:30.:04:31.

areas should remain dry and fairly cloudy overnight. That wind picking

:04:32.:04:35.

up to gale force as we go through the night. The temperatures dropping

:04:36.:04:39.

back to around seven degrees Celsius will feel fairly mild. For Sunday

:04:40.:04:44.

morning we start off on a fairly cloudy note. As we go through the

:04:45.:04:48.

day we are going to feel that wind speed pick up to gale force or

:04:49.:04:52.

severe gale force winds. Gusts of 35 to 40 mph. A very windy day to come

:04:53.:04:57.

but it is going to be feeling mild, highs of 12 Celsius. Look North is

:04:58.:05:05.

back tomorrow, enjoy the rest of your weekend. Goodbye.

:05:06.:05:14.

Hello. For some places today I am sure it felt that spring is just

:05:15.:05:23.

around the corner. However, looming large, coming in from the Atlantic,

:05:24.:05:27.

this broad belt of cloud and this will bring rain to western hills

:05:28.:05:31.

with rain overnight moving into Scotland, Northern Ireland, trying

:05:32.:05:34.

to push into England and Wales but many eastern areas will be dry. The

:05:35.:05:39.

winds will be picking up, 60 miles an hour or so around the Irish Sea

:05:40.:05:43.

coast but with the wind, cloud and rain it should be mild everywhere,

:05:44.:05:48.

typically six or seven Celsius. Tomorrow, some windy weather,

:05:49.:05:52.

especially in the morning around the Irish Sea coasts. A lot more rain

:05:53.:05:54.

for the western areas, heavy

:05:55.:05:56.
