six. It Good evening and welcome to BBC Look

:00:00.:00:09.

North. The headlines tonight: Faster journey times ` MPs say a major rail

:00:10.:00:13.

line in East Yorkshire will be electrified. They assured us that

:00:14.:00:21.

the line would be electrified. Poor exam results ` now an academy

:00:22.:00:25.

school in Lincolnshire is to be handed back to the government. I

:00:26.:00:32.

think this will create a huge amount of instability in the community and

:00:33.:00:36.

a great deal of concern about whether or not their children are

:00:37.:00:39.

getting the education they deserve. A deal is signed for RAF Scampton

:00:40.:00:43.

that could bring jobs and hundreds of thousands of visitors.

:00:44.:00:46.

A game away from Wembley ` Hull City are through to the FA Cup quarter

:00:47.:00:53.

finals. And it has been another mile day,

:00:54.:00:57.

temperatures in double figures. Join me for that, coming up shortly.

:00:58.:01:08.

Good evening. The government is backing plans to upgrade the railway

:01:09.:01:13.

line through East Yorkshire to Hull to allow faster, more reliable

:01:14.:01:16.

electric trains on the route. A group of business leaders and

:01:17.:01:19.

politicians met with the transport secretary in London today to put the

:01:20.:01:22.

case forward. Now that the backing of ministers has been secured it is

:01:23.:01:26.

seen as vital that work starts next year so it can be finished by 2017

:01:27.:01:32.

when Hull becomes City of Culture. Emma Massey reports.

:01:33.:01:37.

They're noisy, inefficient and slow. All the trains which service Hull

:01:38.:01:41.

are diesel. In comparison, the rail industry says electrification is

:01:42.:01:43.

cleaner and greener but, most importantly, faster. That's why this

:01:44.:01:50.

delegation is pushing for electrification and today went to

:01:51.:01:52.

see the Transport Minister Patrick McLoughlin. He assured us that the

:01:53.:02:02.

line would be electrified, that there is an unanswerable case both

:02:03.:02:06.

in terms of cross Pennine, as well as from Hull to London. So that will

:02:07.:02:13.

happen. What we are seeing is it needs to happen now, it needs to be

:02:14.:02:16.

approved this year so work can commence next year, and it can be

:02:17.:02:23.

finished by 2017. We have got a bankrupt economy and the Humber

:02:24.:02:26.

area. We have got a lot happening in the next three or four years, we

:02:27.:02:31.

want rail to be a part of that, we want as many people in the region as

:02:32.:02:37.

possible. Work is underway to electrified the trans`Pennine route.

:02:38.:02:40.

From Liverpool to Manchester to Leeds. But with no plans to go

:02:41.:02:43.

further than Selby ` today's proposal from first hull trains

:02:44.:02:46.

would see overheard line equipment added to the route between there and

:02:47.:02:50.

Hull opening the city up to the rest of the UK's high`speed network. It

:02:51.:02:53.

would be very ambitious and perhaps unlikely for the work to be ready in

:02:54.:02:58.

time for 2017. The year that how a city of culture. `` Hull is city of

:02:59.:03:03.

culture. But those behind The City of Culture

:03:04.:03:08.

say that needs to be the aim. We anticipate something like an

:03:09.:03:10.

additional 12 million visitors to the city. Good, 21st`century,

:03:11.:03:15.

efficient rail links are an urgent necessity. We need them, we need

:03:16.:03:21.

them by the end of 2016 to be up and running. Rail passengers who

:03:22.:03:23.

regularly use services out of Hull say they feel left behind but are

:03:24.:03:26.

concerned about the potential disruption. I think it is

:03:27.:03:30.

outrageous. I think it would make a tremendous difference to the

:03:31.:03:32.

regeneration of the region if they could improve the travelling

:03:33.:03:35.

infrastructure of roads and railways. Very behind with things,

:03:36.:03:42.

obviously. Trains need to be faster, the railway network needs to be

:03:43.:03:45.

better at this end. And it's promised there'll be minimal

:03:46.:03:47.

disruption to current services when the work goes ahead.

:03:48.:03:52.

Emma is live in Hull tonight. There is a lot of support for these plans,

:03:53.:03:56.

why is it so crucial the work is finished by 2017?

:03:57.:04:00.

Well, Peter, there are two main ways to get into Hull, by rail and by

:04:01.:04:05.

this road, the A63. It is very busy. The Transport Secretary Patrick

:04:06.:04:08.

McLaughlin came here last year and was told an upgrade of the A63 was

:04:09.:04:13.

vital for economic growth. Since then a ?160 million upgrade has been

:04:14.:04:21.

given the go ahead. But that will not happen until 2017, which is the

:04:22.:04:29.

year Hull becomes City of Culture. So getting these overhead lines is

:04:30.:04:32.

more important than ever. Those behind it say that faster rail

:04:33.:04:35.

journeys could be only way to ensure easy travel into the city, which is

:04:36.:04:39.

to attract more visitors. Patrick McLoughlin has told Look North he

:04:40.:04:42.

had a constructive meeting without local MPS and councillors today. ``

:04:43.:04:47.

with local MPs and councillors today. He says his officials are now

:04:48.:04:50.

working with the operator and wider industry to explore the possibility

:04:51.:04:54.

of a more detailed study into the scheme. Thank you very much indeed.

:04:55.:04:59.

Some good news, we will continue to follow that story.

:05:00.:05:02.

In a moment: Our World War One At Home series continues, with a

:05:03.:05:05.

special look at the battalion known as the Grimsby Chums.

:05:06.:05:13.

Control of a Lincolnshire school could be removed from the Academy

:05:14.:05:17.

chain that runs it after serious concerns were raised over its

:05:18.:05:20.

education standards. Ofsted inspectors say only 36% of pupils at

:05:21.:05:24.

the Trent Valley Academy in Gainsborough got five good GCSEs

:05:25.:05:27.

there last year, well below the national average. Now E`Act, the

:05:28.:05:32.

academy chain that runs it, is being urged by the government to hand over

:05:33.:05:35.

control of Trent Valley and nine others across the country. Sarah

:05:36.:05:46.

Corker has this report. They are flagship government policy,

:05:47.:05:50.

academies publicly funded but outside of local council control.

:05:51.:05:54.

One of the country's biggest Academy chains is to be stripped of control

:05:55.:05:58.

of ten schools because of poor performance. One of them is Trent

:05:59.:06:03.

Valley Academy in Gainsborough. Something of a surprise to some

:06:04.:06:07.

parents here. It is quite shocking. Just wondering what is going to...

:06:08.:06:12.

How it is going to affect every child. Haven't had any concerns with

:06:13.:06:19.

my granddaughter at all. It is up and down all the time. As a year

:06:20.:06:25.

seven, he has had to put up with a lot of things. E`Act today said its

:06:26.:06:30.

pupils, parents and staff deserve strong support and leadership. It

:06:31.:06:34.

will now focus on where that can be provided. That focus will not be

:06:35.:06:38.

here. Educational standards have been so low the Academy must now

:06:39.:06:46.

find a new sponsor. Schools are not being run properly. There are

:06:47.:06:49.

questions about the bodies, the trusts that are running the schools.

:06:50.:06:52.

There has been a previous investigation into E`Act. The

:06:53.:06:58.

Academy was rated inadequate by Ofsted last year. Only 36% of

:06:59.:07:04.

students achieved five good GCSEs, significantly below the national

:07:05.:07:07.

average. Attendance is also below the average. Across east Yorkshire

:07:08.:07:12.

and Lincolnshire, seven academies are among the 100 worst performing

:07:13.:07:18.

schools in the country for GCSEs. Today, the Education Secretary said

:07:19.:07:22.

it was vital Academy chains be held to account. We need to make sure

:07:23.:07:27.

that when underperformance shows, we take the action required in order to

:07:28.:07:36.

improve education. This man is a Lincolnshire County Council and

:07:37.:07:38.

taught at the Academy until he was made redundant. It is utterly

:07:39.:07:43.

unacceptable, and the community of Gainsborough will be upset about

:07:44.:07:47.

that. It has had a negative effect on the standards of education in our

:07:48.:07:53.

area. Pupils and parents have been reassured that standards are

:07:54.:07:59.

improving. I spoke to Alistair Smith from the

:08:00.:08:03.

anti`academies Alliance, and asked why his group is so against

:08:04.:08:08.

academies. We are not against academies per se, we are against

:08:09.:08:14.

Academy chains. There are real aim is to make profits out of education.

:08:15.:08:24.

`` their real aim. Shouldn't we welcome a dressing underperformance?

:08:25.:08:30.

I am very concerned that the Department of Education has had to

:08:31.:08:33.

take ten schools of the chain. Having not had their eye on this

:08:34.:08:38.

problem already? It beggars belief that a chain with 40 schools,

:08:39.:08:43.

suddenly ten of them are found to be wanting and the chain cannot cope

:08:44.:08:49.

with it. This is good for E`Act, they can focus on raising standards

:08:50.:08:53.

in the remaining academies? Then the education doesn't suffer? It may be

:08:54.:08:58.

good in that sense, but E`Act have too many schools and they cannot

:08:59.:09:04.

cope. But are they good enough? We were told that Academy chains would

:09:05.:09:06.

run schools better than local authorities. This has now been

:09:07.:09:14.

disproved. There are plenty of poor performing schools and local

:09:15.:09:16.

authorities plodding on without the luxury of someone knew coming into

:09:17.:09:21.

back then? There are schools and local authorities that have been

:09:22.:09:23.

failing, but local authorities do not walk away. They are

:09:24.:09:28.

democratically accountable, and when a school goes into special measures

:09:29.:09:31.

the local authority has decided out. Academy chains just drop their hands

:09:32.:09:37.

and walk away. `` throw up their hands and walk away. We will have

:09:38.:09:41.

hundreds of schools down the road who will not have anybody to help

:09:42.:09:47.

them. Thank you very much indeed. We would like to know what you think

:09:48.:09:52.

about this one. Maybe you go to an academy, or your child does. Your

:09:53.:09:56.

thoughts on this one, if you want to be in touch, the e`mail address:

:09:57.:10:03.

Follow me on Twitter, if you want to tweet. And also the text number.

:10:04.:10:11.

Start the texts with the words programme Mac `` Look North. Maybe

:10:12.:10:16.

your child goes to the Academy concerned. Look forward to hearing

:10:17.:10:19.

from you. Some more news now. Plans for 6,000 houses on the

:10:20.:10:22.

outskirts of Scunthorpe have been put on hold. North Lincolnshire

:10:23.:10:26.

Council have taken a decision to delay consultation on the

:10:27.:10:28.

Lincolnshire Lakes scheme while they discuss flood risks.

:10:29.:10:30.

The Humberside Police and Crime Commissioner is calling for a total

:10:31.:10:34.

ban on street drinking in North East Lincolnshire. Matthew Grove says

:10:35.:10:36.

there is a "significant problem" with people drinking alcohol in

:10:37.:10:41.

public in the area. North East Lincolnshire Council will consult on

:10:42.:10:49.

the matter. Lots of things are very difficult to police. The current

:10:50.:10:53.

proposal to ban smoking in cars, where there is a child, is almost

:10:54.:10:59.

impossible to police. That is not necessarily a reason not to

:11:00.:11:03.

introduce it. We want the police to use discretion in this, and use it

:11:04.:11:08.

as a tool in the box. If you're taking a bottle of wine in a picnic

:11:09.:11:12.

basket down to the local park, fine. If you're taking 48 cans of beer to

:11:13.:11:18.

cause a problem, then you've got an issue.

:11:19.:11:21.

You might have a view on this story as well, the email and text details

:11:22.:11:25.

are the screen now if you want to be in touch.

:11:26.:11:27.

Thanks to everyone who got in touch about the new series of Channel 4's

:11:28.:11:31.

Skint, which follows people who are out of work, and is due to start

:11:32.:11:36.

filming in Grimsby. We talk about it last night on the programme. Thanks

:11:37.:11:40.

to everyone who got in touch. Abi in Cleethorpes sent this by text:

:11:41.:11:52.

thank you very much indeed for that one. One of the major roads through

:11:53.:12:23.

east Yorkshire remains close this evening after a serious accident.

:12:24.:12:28.

Humberside police say that two vehicles were involved in the

:12:29.:12:35.

collision on the A1079. One person has been taken to hospital by air

:12:36.:12:39.

ambulance. It is not known when the road will reopen.

:12:40.:12:41.

Lincolnshire has some of the strongest links with the RAF

:12:42.:12:44.

anywhere in the country and now a new heritage centre at Scampton has

:12:45.:12:47.

moved a step closer today. The Royal Air Force Museum near London and

:12:48.:12:50.

Lincolnshire County Council have signed a deal which will see them

:12:51.:12:54.

work together to build the visitor attraction. If it goes ahead it

:12:55.:12:59.

could create 100 jobs, and bring 200,000 tourists a year to the

:13:00.:13:05.

county. Jake Zuckerman has been to the RAF museum and sent this report.

:13:06.:13:13.

With exhibits spanning the history of flight, the RAF Museum in North

:13:14.:13:19.

London is a mecca for aviation enthusiasts. And today's visitors

:13:20.:13:22.

included a group from Lincolnshire County Council here to sign a

:13:23.:13:27.

cooperation agreement. It is the first step in a process that could

:13:28.:13:33.

transform RAF Scampton, the Red Arrows' Lincolnshire base, into a

:13:34.:13:38.

major tourist destination with a multi`million pound heritage centre

:13:39.:13:42.

looking something like this. I think it could be hugely important. In

:13:43.:13:47.

2018 it is the 100th anniversary of the RAF, we are determined

:13:48.:13:50.

Lincolnshire plays a central part in the celebration. And we believe that

:13:51.:13:54.

alongside the castle and the Cathedral, we will then have three

:13:55.:13:58.

world`class attractions that will bring people from all over the world

:13:59.:14:03.

to Lincolnshire. That is all still a long way off, today's agreement is

:14:04.:14:07.

about building the links that will allow Lincolnshire County Council

:14:08.:14:12.

to: The expertise of the RAF Museum. We are very keen to loan or

:14:13.:14:16.

artefacts, we have a significant amount of aircraft, but it is

:14:17.:14:18.

important that we allow everyone across the country to share in those

:14:19.:14:23.

stories. If we are able to loan aircraft, we already loan is craft

:14:24.:14:32.

`` artefacts to Scampton. Aviation tourism is already worth more than

:14:33.:14:34.

?4 million a year to Lincolnshire's economy. Attracting thousands of

:14:35.:14:40.

visitors. The county council estimates that a visitor centre at

:14:41.:14:44.

Scampton could add another 200,000 visitors to that number. With dozens

:14:45.:14:49.

of historic aircraft on display, the RAF Museum attracts millions of

:14:50.:14:54.

visitors a year, putting it in a unique position to be able to help

:14:55.:14:58.

Lincolnshire achieve its own ambitions. Great news, let's hope we

:14:59.:15:06.

get the centre at Scampton. Thank you for watching this Tuesday night.

:15:07.:15:10.

Still ahead tonight: Closing in on Wembley ` Hull City are through to

:15:11.:15:15.

the FA Cup quarter finals. Why can it not be us? We haven't belief that

:15:16.:15:23.

it can be as us `` we have a belief that we can do it.

:15:24.:15:33.

Keep your pictures coming in. Thank you very much indeed for this one,

:15:34.:15:36.

another picture tomorrow night around about the same time.

:15:37.:15:39.

We've made the news ourselves today, If you were watching Look North

:15:40.:15:42.

yesterday lunchtime you might have seen this happen during one of our

:15:43.:15:46.

reports. A fault with a camera gave the impression that Caroline

:15:47.:15:48.

Bilton's chair was collapsing. It's all now been fixed. So far the clip

:15:49.:15:55.

has been viewed more than 400,000 times on YouTube. Caroline is

:15:56.:16:07.

starting out we salute her. `` is a star tonight.

:16:08.:16:12.

You are on your own, sunshine. The headline for the next 24 hours

:16:13.:16:33.

is a mild one, it looks as though it is going to be bright with variable

:16:34.:16:39.

cloud and some sunny intervals. Showers across more northern parts

:16:40.:16:43.

for a time, but basically it is not looking too bad. This weather front

:16:44.:16:46.

will bring more rain in from the west tomorrow night, that should be

:16:47.:16:51.

clear first light Thursday morning. We had unexpected rain late this

:16:52.:16:54.

morning, heavy bursts across parts of Lincolnshire. That works into the

:16:55.:16:59.

North Sea, and the afternoon has been pleasant. Temperatures, 10

:17:00.:17:03.

Celsius at Waddington, 50 Fahrenheit. Showers bushing and from

:17:04.:17:08.

the West tonight, overnight it is try. If you have got shelter from

:17:09.:17:14.

the wind, there is a chance of a touch of ground frost ruefully ``

:17:15.:17:23.

rue relief. The Sun will rise in the morning, at 6:57am, your next high

:17:24.:17:33.

water time. It is not a bad day, the emphasis on a fine and bright spell

:17:34.:17:40.

of weather. Just for a time there is a risk of a few showers bushing into

:17:41.:17:47.

East Yorkshire. Most places will be dry with some sunshine, at another

:17:48.:17:52.

mild one for the time of year, the average is seven or eight degrees.

:17:53.:18:00.

50 Fahrenheit, well above average. More rain expected on Wednesday

:18:01.:18:04.

night, it might be around first thing Thursday morning, at around

:18:05.:18:07.

breakfast time it clears up, sunshine with a few showers, and it

:18:08.:18:11.

looks unsettled and quite showery on Friday. Into the first weekend of

:18:12.:18:18.

March. That is the forecast. So many people ask me, is your mate with

:18:19.:18:28.

you? I absolutely do not. Knock that on the head straightaway. See you

:18:29.:18:32.

tomorrow. World War One claimed the lives of

:18:33.:18:36.

millions of soldiers, and the impact on their home towns and villages was

:18:37.:18:39.

devastating. Many had joined up with their friends and colleagues in what

:18:40.:18:42.

became known as "pals battalions". Tonight, as we continue with the

:18:43.:18:46.

BBC's World War One at Home series we look at one of those battalions

:18:47.:18:49.

which was known as the Grimsby Chums. Jo Makel tells their story.

:18:50.:18:58.

When war was declared Britain only had a small army. Lord Kitchener,

:18:59.:19:03.

the Secretary of War, cold for 100,000 men to join up. It was the

:19:04.:19:14.

birth of the pals battalions. `` called for 100,000 men to join up.

:19:15.:19:20.

Kitchener's trump card was the fact that he promised that if you joined

:19:21.:19:23.

up together, you would serve together. People who worked

:19:24.:19:28.

alongside each other on the docks in Grimsby joined up together. Charlie

:19:29.:19:33.

had been doing voluntary work, and it is a tragic thing, he was such a

:19:34.:19:38.

good leader, most youngsters joined up with him. This rare footage shows

:19:39.:19:43.

the men of the 10th Battalion of the Lincolnshire regiment. The Grimsby

:19:44.:19:46.

Chums. They trained initially on the Brocklesby estate using make do

:19:47.:19:53.

uniforms from the post office. They were quite interested in having a

:19:54.:19:56.

challenge, doing their bit, as it were. Nobody had a clue what they

:19:57.:20:00.

were getting into. Richard's uncle Charles was in his early 20s and

:20:01.:20:04.

became a captain. He still has his will, written in the last hours

:20:05.:20:07.

before leaving for France in January 1916. We are going through a

:20:08.:20:15.

terrible strife, and I hope to be one of the ones to return. If it is

:20:16.:20:21.

not God 's will that I returned to you all, you will know I have tried

:20:22.:20:25.

to do my duty as a man. Over the next six months they they

:20:26.:20:28.

experienced real life in the trenches. Charles wrote in June: so

:20:29.:20:35.

much rain in the trenches and everything is so wet. If I pull out

:20:36.:20:40.

all right, I hope to have a company, which my ambition. It was to be his

:20:41.:20:44.

last letter. The Allies were trying to break through enemy lines spent

:20:45.:20:47.

days bombarding the Germans with artillery fire. On July first at

:20:48.:20:53.

7.30am the Chums were among a line of infantrymen who went over the

:20:54.:21:00.

top. But the deep German trenches were largely untouched. The German

:21:01.:21:08.

machine gunners came out of the dugouts, troops like the Chums, they

:21:09.:21:20.

were an easy target. Leading men across and encouraging them to their

:21:21.:21:23.

own deaths must have been a horrific situation. When he was

:21:24.:21:27.

machine`gunned, lying there are wounded, in mud and filth and

:21:28.:21:32.

things, he must have wondered, what have I done? About 840 Chums went

:21:33.:21:36.

over the top that day. Around half were killed or injured. But Peter

:21:37.:21:41.

Stele has in the past spoken to some of those who survived. They said

:21:42.:21:49.

things like, well, you just did it because you did not want to let your

:21:50.:21:53.

mates down. They were going over the top and you wanted to be with them.

:21:54.:21:56.

Charles Bellamy is remembered with his fellow soldiers in Grimsby

:21:57.:22:03.

Minster. They all joined up together and they were all killed together,

:22:04.:22:07.

it wiped out a whole echelon of society, and in a small place like

:22:08.:22:11.

Grimsby, it must have been absolutely devastating. All the

:22:12.:22:15.

young men of that generation just wiped out. The "pals" experiment was

:22:16.:22:19.

not repeated. The suffering in tight communities like Grimsby was too

:22:20.:22:26.

much to bear. And if you want to hear more about

:22:27.:22:30.

the untold stories from the Home Front then go to the BBC website

:22:31.:22:33.

where you'll be able to discover more World War One history from

:22:34.:22:41.

across the UK. We are looking for people to have

:22:42.:22:44.

their say about what we do here at Look North by joining our audience

:22:45.:22:48.

:22:49.:22:54.

receive expenses `` it is unpaid. Visit the website for details. You

:22:55.:23:00.

need to do it by March the 7th. We look forward to hearing from you.

:23:01.:23:03.

Scunthorpe United could go top of League Two if they continue their 16

:23:04.:23:07.

match unbeaten run tonight. The Iron are second on goal difference to

:23:08.:23:10.

Chesterfield and take on Bristol Rovers at Glanford park this

:23:11.:23:13.

evening. This side are yet to lose since manager Russ Wilcox took over

:23:14.:23:16.

in November. Grimsby Town will try to move closer

:23:17.:23:19.

to the Conference play off places when they take on Southport tonight.

:23:20.:23:23.

The Mariners have a number of games in hand on their promotion rivals

:23:24.:23:27.

after their FA Trophy campaign. They're currently eighth and have

:23:28.:23:30.

won once in their last six league matches.

:23:31.:23:36.

And both those games will be on BBC Radio Humberside tonight

:23:37.:23:38.

Scunthorpe's match at home to Bristol Rovers is on FM, the build

:23:39.:23:53.

up is on air now in Sportstalk. Hull City are just one game away

:23:54.:23:56.

from a trip to Wembley after reaching the quarterfinals of the FA

:23:57.:24:00.

Cup for just the sixth time in their history. They'll meet Premier League

:24:01.:24:03.

rivals Sunderland on March ninth ` a team the club has beaten twice this

:24:04.:24:06.

season already. Our sports reporter Simon Clark has the story of Hull

:24:07.:24:09.

City's progress. The Tigers are just minutes from a

:24:10.:24:12.

second trip to Wembley. Last night against Brighton Hove Albion the

:24:13.:24:14.

club asserted its superiority against Championship opponents in

:24:15.:24:17.

the FA Cup with Curtis Davies squeezing home the first. Robert

:24:18.:24:20.

Koren was then credited with a second though it was far from clear

:24:21.:24:24.

cut. The men in amber and black were cruising through when Leo Ulloja

:24:25.:24:28.

reminded them they were in a cup tie but they held on to win. I thought,

:24:29.:24:31.

shall I get a ticket or shall I watch it in the comfort? And I

:24:32.:24:34.

thought, I have got to be there. And after Saturday, it was the best

:24:35.:24:38.

decision I made. The second half, they were quite poor. But we are in

:24:39.:24:44.

the quarterfinals. Thought it was absolutely excellent. We have got a

:24:45.:24:50.

chance, we are in the last eight, we are a Premier League team. We are a

:24:51.:24:53.

threat to anybody. It's only Hull City's sixth visit to the quarter

:24:54.:24:57.

final of the cup. This was their third time ` a replay at Boothferry

:24:58.:25:00.

park against Chelsea. Chelsea scraped through. Ken Wagstaff played

:25:01.:25:05.

on that day in 1966 and again in the quarter final in 1971 against Stoke.

:25:06.:25:09.

Baby`sitting his grandson, Waggy says today's team have to seize the

:25:10.:25:18.

day against Sunderland. You're playing in the sixth round, not far

:25:19.:25:23.

from Wembley, it is really exciting for the supporters. The supporters

:25:24.:25:30.

get behind you, and I just want them to go for the supporters, really.

:25:31.:25:35.

What a great opportunity for Hull City in this competition, a

:25:36.:25:39.

competition that has not been kind to them over the years. If they can

:25:40.:25:43.

beat Sunderland, it is a date at Wembley Stadium, and the semifinals.

:25:44.:25:51.

One game away, fantastic news for Hull City. We will continue to

:25:52.:25:56.

follow their success. It is five minutes to seven, let's get a recap

:25:57.:26:01.

of the national and regional headlines: a suspected IRA terrorist

:26:02.:26:06.

accused of murdering four British soldiers in London will not stand

:26:07.:26:09.

trial because of what is being called a reckless police error.

:26:10.:26:12.

Faster journey times ` MPs say a major rail line in East Yorkshire

:26:13.:26:18.

will be electrified. Tomorrow's weather, bright and breezy with some

:26:19.:26:23.

cloud and sunny intervals. A few showers as well, many places staying

:26:24.:26:26.

dry. Mild in the afternoon, getting up to around 10 Celsius.

:26:27.:26:34.

We were talking about academies and the Trent Valley Academy a few

:26:35.:26:37.

minutes ago. A big response on this. I am a student at the Trent Valley

:26:38.:26:43.

Academy, and there is poor quality teachers. Since we started back in

:26:44.:26:48.

September, we have had four different timetables, they have

:26:49.:26:51.

stopped activities week and work experience. I am not happy with the

:26:52.:26:54.

quality of education at the Trent Valley Academy. That is from a

:26:55.:26:59.

student there. Karen says, I have two children attend the Trent Valley

:27:00.:27:04.

Academy, one of whom left last year with good exam results. During both

:27:05.:27:08.

my daughters' time there, they were extremely happy, and the staff go

:27:09.:27:13.

above and beyond the cold duty to assist. As a parent, I could not

:27:14.:27:18.

praise and thank the staff enough. And Angelina, a retired teacher

:27:19.:27:22.

says, of course the results are below the national average. The top

:27:23.:27:30.

candidates go to grammar schools. And another person says, it is a

:27:31.:27:33.

no`brainer. It has to compete with the Gainsborough high school, which

:27:34.:27:36.

creams off the more academic students. Blame it partly on

:27:37.:27:44.

selection. Join me if you can on the radio tomorrow lunchtime. Have a

:27:45.:27:45.

nice evening. Goodbye.
