life changing experience. The question is whether the Games will

:00:00.3:59:59

deliver a lasting change to Good evening. An East Yorkshire MP

:00:00.:00:12.

is asking the government for more than ?200 million to improve flood

:00:13.:00:17.

defences around the Humber. 1,100 homes in the area were flooded

:00:18.:00:22.

during the tidal surge in December. The MP for Haltemprice and Howden,

:00:23.:00:25.

David Davis, is lobbying the government to provide money for work

:00:26.:00:28.

on the defences. Kate Sweeting reports.

:00:29.:00:31.

For John and Liz Kirk from Yokefleet in East Yorkshire, this caravan is

:00:32.:00:37.

now home. Now after 11 weeks, it is just really depressing now and it

:00:38.:00:43.

gets you down after all this time. 1,100 homes in the Humber area were

:00:44.:00:46.

flooded during December's tidal surge. Now with predictions that

:00:47.:00:51.

extreme weather will become more common there are calls for the East

:00:52.:00:57.

Coast to be better protected. We are the second highest flood risk in the

:00:58.:01:01.

country. That is going to get worse as sea levels go up, then we are

:01:02.:01:05.

going to get more and more risks like this and we have to do

:01:06.:01:09.

something about it. The plan is to raise the height of parts of the

:01:10.:01:12.

river bank which protect thousands of homes from flooding but which

:01:13.:01:15.

were overtopped during December's tidal surge. There are also plans to

:01:16.:01:19.

create water holding areas and to remove some flood defences to allow

:01:20.:01:24.

some areas to flood. This has already been done in Aukbrough,

:01:25.:01:27.

Paull and Donna Nook, albeit amid controversy, as many did not want to

:01:28.:01:32.

see that land lost. All of this work would cost more than ?200 million,

:01:33.:01:36.

money which would largely have to come from the government. It's a big

:01:37.:01:41.

project. We're looking forward 20 years from now. It's a very

:01:42.:01:46.

important area, very valuable assets and so it's right to invest a large

:01:47.:01:50.

amount of money in such an important area.

:01:51.:01:54.

If it's not done all this land will be reclaimed. Nature will just take

:01:55.:01:59.

its own back again, won't it? Unless you fight it.

:02:00.:02:03.

Liz and John hope to stay in this village for the rest of their lives,

:02:04.:02:07.

and it's hoped if this work is carried out, it will also be saved

:02:08.:02:09.

for future generations. People living in Grimsby have met

:02:10.:02:17.

tonight to talk about the planned new series of Skint which could be

:02:18.:02:21.

filmed in the town. People on the Nunsthorpe estate expressed their

:02:22.:02:24.

worries about the programme which shows how people survive without

:02:25.:02:29.

being employed. More than 800 people have signed a petition calling for

:02:30.:02:32.

filming to cease. Gemma Dawson reports.

:02:33.:02:37.

Ah, Scunthorpe... This TV show was watched by millions. Scunny is

:02:38.:02:41.

perhaps best known for the steelworks. Or what's left of 'em.

:02:42.:02:48.

Skint was based on life on this Scunthorpe estate, but the Channel 4

:02:49.:02:51.

show proved to be controversial. Tonight people in Grimsby have

:02:52.:02:54.

attended a public meeting concerned it could be the featured town in the

:02:55.:03:00.

next series. People here are very proud of their town. We don't really

:03:01.:03:05.

want that to be hit by a negative programme. The fact that we're

:03:06.:03:08.

joining together shows that it's no longer down to big decision makers,

:03:09.:03:11.

it's down to the people, the people's power. It showed that

:03:12.:03:15.

people are very concerned and they care about their town. We don't want

:03:16.:03:20.

to be vilified in this way. I'm going home feeling very positive.

:03:21.:03:25.

There's a huge number of people and everyone with one voice. Loads of

:03:26.:03:30.

creativity, lots of ideas and a desire to carry this forward. This

:03:31.:03:34.

is a group that's united and I think that's unstoppable. Channel 4 didn't

:03:35.:03:39.

attend tonight's meeting because it says it offered to meet organisers

:03:40.:03:42.

in person as part of a wider consultation process which has

:03:43.:03:44.

involved community organisations and over 100 residents. But test filming

:03:45.:03:48.

has already taken place on the East Marsh estate and the Nunsthorpe area

:03:49.:03:53.

of Grimsby. People need to know the conditions in which people in this

:03:54.:03:56.

country, which the Prime Minister himself has now admitted is a

:03:57.:04:01.

wealthy country. The conditions some people have to live in, they need to

:04:02.:04:06.

see it and know it. If they see it as entertainment then that's their

:04:07.:04:13.

problem. Channel 4 says it can't definitely confirm the final

:04:14.:04:16.

location of the next series yet. But many at tonight's public meeting are

:04:17.:04:21.

hoping it won't be here. Lincolnshire's Police and Crime

:04:22.:04:23.

Commissioner has apologised to the chief constable he suspended last

:04:24.:04:28.

year. Neil Rhodes was subsequently reinstated by a High Court judge.

:04:29.:04:32.

Alan Hardwick says his apology is sincere and unreserved. But he says

:04:33.:04:37.

his intention was to act appropriately.

:04:38.:04:40.

The last two remaining flying Lancaster bombers are to fly

:04:41.:04:43.

together in Lincolnshire. A bomber from Canada will arrive at RAF

:04:44.:04:48.

Coningsby in August. It'll fly alongside the Lancaster from the

:04:49.:04:51.

Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. Last year was the 70th anniversary

:04:52.:04:57.

of the Dambusters raids. Hull City are into the quarterfinals

:04:58.:05:01.

of the FA Cup after a 2`1 win over Brighton at the KC Stadium tonight.

:05:02.:05:05.

Two first half goals were enough to give the Tigers the win. Simon Clark

:05:06.:05:10.

was at the game. Do City have a real chance in this competition now?

:05:11.:05:20.

They have never won this competition but what an opportunity this season

:05:21.:05:24.

presents now they are in the quarterfinals. Let me show you how

:05:25.:05:29.

they got there. First up this from Curtis Davies. Soon after it was to

:05:30.:05:39.

win this free kick `` free kick took a deflection from Robert Koren. They

:05:40.:05:45.

spurned and opportunity to increase before Brighton at themselves their

:05:46.:05:54.

goal. The Tigers held on for a two to one victory. This is what the

:05:55.:05:57.

fans thought. They made hard work of tonight but at least we're through.

:05:58.:06:01.

It is absolutely fabulous, I love it, me. I'm thrilled, can't wait for

:06:02.:06:04.

Sunderland. We've done the double over them, three times will be good

:06:05.:06:08.

for me. It was very very scary the last ten minutes but absolutely

:06:09.:06:10.

brilliant. Absolutely brilliant, Sunderland, crack on. Hull City have

:06:11.:06:19.

only been in the quarterfinals six times. They have only gone beyond

:06:20.:06:27.

that, 1913 into the semifinals. And if they are in the semifinals this

:06:28.:06:34.

year it is at Wembley Stadium. The quarterfinal date, the second week

:06:35.:06:42.

in March. It is turning wetter and windier. Rain spreading in from the

:06:43.:06:47.

west. The rain tending to clear towards morning. A mild night and

:06:48.:06:53.

temperatures down to six or seven degrees. The cloud will break up

:06:54.:06:57.

quite nicely tomorrow and it will get brighter sickly. A decent day,

:06:58.:07:04.

dry and bright. The risk of the odd shower and not until later on. The

:07:05.:07:08.

breeze will be quite gusty and now eased out later. Not quite as mild

:07:09.:07:14.

as today, but at 212 degrees. It will be more like 10 degrees.

:07:15.:07:19.

Another decent day on Wednesday, bright and easy. Rain into Thursday.

:07:20.:07:27.

We're back tomorrow at 6:25am with the breakfast bulletins. We hope you

:07:28.:07:30.

can join us then. Goodbye for now. Good evening. We have a spell of wet

:07:31.:07:43.

and windy weather working across the British Isles. Today brought many of

:07:44.:07:46.

us some decent spells of sunshine and it brought us some decent

:07:47.:07:51.

temperatures. In fact, our warmest day of the year so far.

:07:52.:07:58.

At the moment, though, things have changed. This is the gap in the

:07:59.:08:04.

satellite picture. Now, this curl of cloud looks like a snail's shell, it

:08:05.:08:08.

is an area of low pressure that is sweeping wind and rain across us.

:08:09.:08:11.

It's pushed into the west already and is now making rapid progress

:08:12.:08:16.

eastwards, moving into eastern England through the small

:08:17.:08:17.
