soon. That is all from the BBC News at Six, goodbye from me. On BBC One

:00:00.:00:00.

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

:00:00.:00:09.

that this area could lose out on millions of pounds of European money

:00:10.:00:19.

to help repair flood damage. MEPs vote to the government in January

:00:20.:00:23.

saying, could you please ask for money for the UK flooded areas, and

:00:24.:00:27.

so far they have not. Bigger warnings and smaller packs` how

:00:28.:00:30.

tighter laws could help stop smoking Flowering too soon. How the early

:00:31.:00:33.

spring is hitting the UK's daffodil industry And the tourist train

:00:34.:00:37.

bringing a little bit of the seaside to Hull Homeowners and businesses

:00:38.:00:40.

hit by December's floods are missing out on millions of pounds of

:00:41.:00:42.

European compensation money because it's claimed the UK Government

:00:43.:00:46.

doesn't want it. The tourist train bringing ethics of the seaside to

:00:47.:00:50.

Hull. Detailed forecast is in 15 minutes.

:00:51.:01:07.

Homeowners and businesses hit by the floods in December are missing out

:01:08.:01:10.

on millions of pounds in compensation because it is claimed

:01:11.:01:13.

the UK Government does not want it. The tidal surge affected more than a

:01:14.:01:16.

thousand homes and businesses in East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire and

:01:17.:01:19.

now Euro Mps say money is available to repair the damage. But the

:01:20.:01:26.

Government says it won't be asking Brussels for financial help. Tim

:01:27.:01:28.

Iredale reports. Could our flood hit towns and

:01:29.:01:31.

villages be missing out on millions of pounds worth of European money to

:01:32.:01:40.

help them get back on their feet? In Barrow Haven on the south bank of

:01:41.:01:43.

the Humber they're still counting the cost of December's tidal surge.

:01:44.:01:51.

The local pub has been closed for almost three months while repair

:01:52.:01:54.

work is carried out. They are expecting it to be about half a

:01:55.:01:57.

million, between 450 and ?500,000 worth. It will cost us some as well,

:01:58.:02:05.

there are always going to be things we have forgotten about on

:02:06.:02:08.

insurance. There will be an outlay for us but there we go. One of those

:02:09.:02:12.

things. Back in 2007, there were similar calls for flood hit parts of

:02:13.:02:15.

our area to receive financial help from the EU. I went to the European

:02:16.:02:19.

Parliament on the hunt for our missing millions. Seven years on, I

:02:20.:02:27.

have returned to Brussels where some MEPs are asking once again, what

:02:28.:02:47.

happened to our flood money? We have asked the Lib Dems, MEPs all wrote

:02:48.:02:50.

to the government on the seventh January saying can you please now

:02:51.:02:54.

ask for money for the UK for flooded areas. So far they haven't done so,

:02:55.:03:02.

which is a pity. Last year the EU Solidarity fund paid out more than

:03:03.:03:06.

?300 million to parts of Europe affected by severe flooding,

:03:07.:03:08.

including Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic. I asked a leading

:03:09.:03:11.

Conservative MEP why our government wasn't tapping into that emergency

:03:12.:03:14.

fund? The government has made a lot of enquiries about the Solidarity

:03:15.:03:18.

fund, it is there to help victims of major disasters. Where are we not

:03:19.:03:27.

getting it? We have to look at the balance of whether it is a good

:03:28.:03:31.

thing to ask for it or not whether we should be... Surely it is a good

:03:32.:03:35.

thing if it is coming to help people? Not necessarily because by

:03:36.:03:38.

taking that money it may well mean that is coming out of monies which

:03:39.:03:43.

are also going to be paid to us out of the funds. There are a lot of

:03:44.:03:46.

complications about this. Those complications will probably be

:03:47.:03:48.

little consolation for communities who have paid a heavy price for this

:03:49.:03:51.

winter's severe weather. Tim is in live in Barton`upon`Humber

:03:52.:03:54.

this evening. Why doesn't the Government just go ahead and apply

:03:55.:03:56.

for this money? For the origins of this row, you

:03:57.:03:59.

have to turn back the clock 30 years to a time when Margaret Thatcher was

:04:00.:04:02.

Prime Minister and famously handbag other European leaders into giving

:04:03.:04:04.

back some of the money we pay towards the EU. It is that so`called

:04:05.:04:09.

rebate the present government fears asking for help for. The Labour

:04:10.:04:16.

government got some money from Europe in 2007, but not as much as

:04:17.:04:20.

some people wanted. The bottom line is, who is best placed to decide how

:04:21.:04:27.

flood`hit communities like this one receive financial help. Visit

:04:28.:04:30.

Westminster or Europe? The government says it is not Brussels.

:04:31.:04:42.

In a moment: 100 years on ` we tell the story of a Hull butcher who came

:04:43.:04:46.

under attack in the First World War. With one of the highest rates of

:04:47.:04:49.

smoking in the country, health professionals in Hull says tighter

:04:50.:04:52.

laws on tobacco packaging will help to reduce the number of young people

:04:53.:04:56.

taking up the habit. It comes as plans for bigger health warnings on

:04:57.:04:59.

packets and a ban on flavoured cigarettes were approved by the

:05:00.:05:04.

European Parliament. Stopping young people from ever

:05:05.:05:07.

starting smoking. The focus of tighter EU wide laws on tobacco

:05:08.:05:21.

packaging. Approved today ` larger health warnings on packets. A ban on

:05:22.:05:25.

ten packs ` popular with younger people. And menthol cigarettes

:05:26.:05:32.

phased out. Over 50 young people in our region start smoking every day.

:05:33.:05:35.

A heavy smoker for 30 years, Mo is now getting help to quit at this

:05:36.:05:39.

stop smoking service in Hull. The graphic images had a big effect on

:05:40.:05:47.

her. I think it is scary. I can still remember pictures of a face

:05:48.:05:54.

cancer, and vanity tells a woman, I don't want that to happen to me. I'm

:05:55.:06:01.

part of brands Armistead, over 50% of people smoke. That is double the

:06:02.:06:13.

national average `` on parts of the Bransholme estate, over 50% of

:06:14.:06:19.

people smoke. Anything that will help people to not start in the

:06:20.:06:22.

first place is a good idea. Millions have already been spent

:06:23.:06:33.

stop smoking tv campaigns. But one local MP says these new rules go too

:06:34.:06:42.

far. It is another example of the EU pushing their nose in where

:06:43.:06:44.

Westminster is capable of dealing with it on their own. Youngsters

:06:45.:06:51.

will just get through 20 much quicker than they did the town.

:06:52.:06:54.

And there was scepticism at this Lincoln newsagents too. The health

:06:55.:06:59.

warnings worked when they first came out. Everybody has got used to them

:07:00.:07:05.

that they do not really look at them. Taking effect in 2016,

:07:06.:07:10.

campaigners say the legislation is a milestone in reducing the number

:07:11.:07:13.

Dave Atherton is from "Freedom two Choose" and he joins me now.

:07:14.:07:19.

Of smokers. You must welcome greater warning

:07:20.:07:29.

signs on packages. It is not as if smokers are not aware of the

:07:30.:07:38.

dangers. It is well`known by smokers, they do not need any

:07:39.:07:41.

further warnings from the government, thank you very much. In

:07:42.:07:46.

Australia, packs are almost entirely covered by warnings, and the

:07:47.:07:49.

percentage of teenagers deterred from taking up smoking is far higher

:07:50.:07:56.

than in this country, so it works. There is more teenagers in Australia

:07:57.:08:06.

that's right. `` that smoke. The number of people that smoke has

:08:07.:08:10.

remained constant. Will bigger warnings mean less smokers? No, not

:08:11.:08:16.

at all. It is just nanny state. The only packs I notice these days are

:08:17.:08:21.

the ones without health warnings. If somebody can only get ten cigarettes

:08:22.:08:24.

and a packet, will help them smoke less? No. You sound a little bit

:08:25.:08:42.

negative on these things. Don't you agree, we have heard about the high

:08:43.:08:45.

rate of smoking in the city, we have to do something? If we are talking

:08:46.:09:03.

about the directive, Sweden has the lowest rates of lung cancer. They

:09:04.:09:11.

are making the effectiveness of EC directs reduced `` e`cigarettes. Do

:09:12.:09:23.

you believe smokers are being slowly and surely socially alienate? I

:09:24.:09:33.

think it is a matter of record. We are the only identified minority

:09:34.:09:39.

that are discriminated against. Good to talk to you.

:09:40.:09:41.

Let us know what you think about this story. If you're a smoker and

:09:42.:09:50.

you couldn't buy them in packs of ten, would that affect your habit?

:09:51.:09:54.

Is is a good idea to cover two thirds of the packaging with

:09:55.:09:55.

warnings? A 25`year`old man has died after

:09:56.:10:14.

what the police have described as a drink`related incident in

:10:15.:10:23.

Scunthorpe. A police investigation is now under way into the

:10:24.:10:26.

circumstances. The man, who has been named locally as Derick Hare, was

:10:27.:10:29.

taken to hospital in the early hours of Sunday morning after attending a

:10:30.:10:33.

house party. He died this morning. Those who knew him have paid tribute

:10:34.:10:42.

to him. He was a lovely boy. Quiet. He was here a few times. He didn't

:10:43.:10:48.

bother anybody. He was well liked. A genuinely lovely little boy. It is

:10:49.:10:50.

such a shame. A plan has been drawn up to tackle

:10:51.:10:54.

the problem of child poverty in Lincoln. The council says that one

:10:55.:10:57.

in four children live in poverty in the city, which is over the national

:10:58.:11:06.

average. They met with other local organisations earlier today to

:11:07.:11:09.

discuss the issue. Motorists travelling to Hull today have faced

:11:10.:11:15.

long delays after a serious accident. There is still some

:11:16.:11:23.

congestion. A car and another vehicle were involved in the crash.

:11:24.:11:26.

Flower growers in Lincolnshire say the industry is the latest victim of

:11:27.:11:31.

the unpredictable weather. The county's daffodil crop has flowered

:11:32.:11:34.

at least two weeks early following unseasonably high temperatures. Paul

:11:35.:11:40.

Murphy reports. Nearly half of the UK's daffodil

:11:41.:11:44.

crop is grown in this fertile corner of Southern Lincolnshire. This is a

:11:45.:11:52.

variety called Spring Dawn. At the moment it's growing too quickly and

:11:53.:11:55.

the industry is nervous. There are just too many flowers on the market,

:11:56.:11:59.

you know. There is a market for all of those flowers, providing they're

:12:00.:12:10.

spread out over about ten weeks. But if they all come in five weeks,

:12:11.:12:13.

there are just too many. Daffodils require a very precise sequence of

:12:14.:12:17.

cold and then mild weather to make them commercially viable. It's fair

:12:18.:12:20.

to say that in recent years, this industry has struggled to achieve

:12:21.:12:24.

that. The changing climate means growers must try to stay one step

:12:25.:12:35.

ahead of the weather. Where we used to look for varieties that were

:12:36.:12:38.

early, we are now tending to look more for varieties that are late so

:12:39.:12:42.

we can extend the season towards the end of April, beginning of May. And

:12:43.:12:46.

retailers also need to keep a careful eye on how the season is

:12:47.:12:50.

going. Daffodils start off in the Scilly Islands and then they come to

:12:51.:12:53.

Cornwall and then currently we're sourcing them from Lincolnshire and

:12:54.:12:56.

eventually towards the end of the season, they will come from

:12:57.:12:59.

Scotland. There will be availability for quite a long period of time but

:13:00.:13:09.

it is where they come to us from. Growers are fearful the market could

:13:10.:13:12.

be flooded with daffodils in the coming weeks. Not great for profit

:13:13.:13:15.

but perhaps good news for those buying for Mother's Day.

:13:16.:13:23.

Still ahead tonight: The goal which gave Scunthorpe their 17th unbeaten

:13:24.:13:30.

game ` so why were the players booed off the pitch last night? We are not

:13:31.:13:39.

going to win every game. More importantly, we are not losing.

:13:40.:13:49.

Conjunction of the moon with Venus at 6.15 this morning taken near

:13:50.:14:00.

Driffield by Trevor Appleton. Hm.

:14:01.:14:08.

Many years ago, Trevor was a weather forecaster, and he was very

:14:09.:14:12.

professional. That is a matter of opinion. If he

:14:13.:14:18.

was overtaken that photograph at six this morning, he has got too much

:14:19.:14:22.

time on his hands. Do you remember Trevor? It is a good

:14:23.:14:26.

job he has a good sense of humour. Hello, Trevor. It looks like it was

:14:27.:14:32.

out of wet, but brighten up with sunshine. Another Atlantic weather

:14:33.:14:35.

fronts will bring ranging from the West. We will have to watch this

:14:36.:14:40.

feature down to the south. It may bring more rain. The precise track

:14:41.:14:46.

is uncertain so stay tuned with your local forecast. It has turned out to

:14:47.:14:54.

be quite a nice day. Temperatures are been hovering about nine

:14:55.:15:04.

Celsius. It's cloud over and Brent spread from the West after midnight.

:15:05.:15:10.

Some persistent rain. A miserable end to the night. Lowest

:15:11.:15:14.

temperatures down to four or five. The sun will rise at around 6:55am.

:15:15.:15:33.

It will be a wet start. It will soon brighten up from the West. One or

:15:34.:15:52.

two afternoon showers. Quite breezy. Above average for February. A great

:15:53.:15:57.

deal of uncertainty for Friday. We are at risk of cloud and outbreaks

:15:58.:16:05.

of them. Sunday looks fine at the moment.

:16:06.:16:11.

What is the betting Alex Deakin will send in a photograph to try get on

:16:12.:16:17.

the show tomorrow? I think he has got better things to

:16:18.:16:21.

do. Sorry, Mrs Deacon, if you are

:16:22.:16:27.

watching. In 1914, it was the first time for centuries that war was

:16:28.:16:29.

brought right onto people's doorsteps.The Zeppelin raids of

:16:30.:16:32.

World War I meant towns and cities were bombed. Feelings ran high,

:16:33.:16:42.

particularly in Hull. In the latest in our World War I At Home series,

:16:43.:16:45.

Jo Makel reports on how German families living here came under

:16:46.:16:49.

attack. The death of Archduke Franz

:16:50.:16:52.

Ferdinand and the stand` off in Europe must have seemed a distant

:16:53.:16:56.

dispute. But on the day Britain declared against Germany, the war

:16:57.:16:59.

was on people's doorsteps. And it was a family who had a butcher's

:17:00.:17:02.

shop in Hull City centre who were among the first to suffer.

:17:03.:17:08.

Within hours of the outbreak of war a Hohenrein shop had been attacked

:17:09.:17:12.

on a perfectly nice afternoon, as a man who had enlisted in the war

:17:13.:17:15.

decided to show his angst against the Germans by smashing the shop

:17:16.:17:21.

window. The Hohenreins were a respectable

:17:22.:17:31.

family of German descent. They were leading philanthropists,

:17:32.:17:34.

they were involved in the cultural activity, everything in Hull. They

:17:35.:17:37.

were part of Hull. Having been born in Britain, having traded in Britain

:17:38.:17:41.

they were now going to be attacked for nothing other than the fact that

:17:42.:17:50.

their surname was German, Hohenrein. ?? new line Anti`German protests and

:17:51.:17:54.

attacks was happening in other parts of Britain and in France. But But in

:17:55.:17:57.

Hull, feelings seemed to intensify as news came of soldiers lost,

:17:58.:18:01.

trawlers sank at sea and the start of the Zeppelin raids. The The war

:18:02.:18:09.

came to Hull, men and women and children especially were being

:18:10.:18:21.

killed by aerial bombardments. For the first time in British

:18:22.:18:23.

history, sustained bombing took place anywhere in Britain, here in

:18:24.:18:26.

Hull. The attacks in 1915 and '16 sparked

:18:27.:18:31.

outrage. And families like the Hohenreins became the focus for

:18:32.:18:40.

hate. This recording from the Imperial War Museum is of George

:18:41.:18:46.

Park. He was a child in Hull during World War I and recalls one

:18:47.:18:55.

anti`German attack. We went looking for German spies.

:18:56.:19:00.

There was a house down our street which was suspected of being German,

:19:01.:19:03.

well, I can't remember what it was, but they threw a piano out of the

:19:04.:19:09.

window and smashed the house up. This is a list of the prosecutions

:19:10.:19:13.

that took place at the courts in Hull. There were 50 attacks the

:19:14.:19:23.

roundabout, they took place around the city. `` there were around 50

:19:24.:19:37.

attacks in the Hull. The courts took the attacks

:19:38.:19:40.

seriously and jailed some of the offenders. But The Hohenreins never

:19:41.:19:45.

made any official complaint. They chose instead to close their shops

:19:46.:19:48.

and make an announcement in the local paper. They renounced and

:19:49.:19:56.

abandoned the name Hohenrein and became the very English`sounding

:19:57.:20:07.

Ross family. They did return to business after the war, as Ross

:20:08.:20:10.

Butchers. But the conflict had been felt so closely at home, they never

:20:11.:20:21.

returned to their German name. And if you want to hear more about

:20:22.:20:25.

the untold stories from the home front, then go to the BBC website

the UK. Thanks to everyone who got in touch with us about the Trent

:20:35.:20:37.

Valley Academy in Gainsborough which is likely to change hands after

:20:38.:20:40.

serious concerns were raised over its GCSE results.

:20:41.:21:01.

We are looking for people to have their say about what we do here at

:21:02.:21:07.

BBC Look North by joining our Regional Audience Panel. The group

:21:08.:21:10.

meets three times a year and it's unpaid, although you would receive

:21:11.:21:13.

expenses. If you're interested, you can pick up an information pack by

:21:14.:21:17.

visiting the website. Or you can give us a call. The details are on

:21:18.:21:21.

the screen now. The closing date is Friday March seventh.

:21:22.:21:23.

Scunthorpe United remain second in league Two despite being held to a

:21:24.:21:27.

draw by Bristol Rovers. Some fans booed the players off last night

:21:28.:21:31.

even though the match was The Iron's 17th game unbeaten. Simon Clark

:21:32.:21:34.

reports on the club's promotion chances.

:21:35.:21:42.

They're the couple tearing up league two defences ` Sam Winnall and Paul

:21:43.:21:46.

Hayes, Hayes is wearing the striking pink trousers. Having won two

:21:47.:21:48.

promotions with Iron before, he thinks it can be third time lucky

:21:49.:21:54.

this time. If you ask any claim to go that many games unbeaten, you

:21:55.:21:59.

would snap somebody's handoff. We were disappointed we did not win

:22:00.:22:03.

yesterday, you have to look at the whole picture. We are not good to

:22:04.:22:06.

win every game, but we are not losing, more importantly Not that

:22:07.:22:13.

all went to plan last night, although Winnall was on target with

:22:14.:22:17.

a first half header. It was the late equaliser from Steven Giollespie

:22:18.:22:20.

that hearlded boos from a few at Glanford Park. Expectations had gone

:22:21.:22:22.

through the roof a little. We have to try and keep that night and

:22:23.:22:25.

town, and concentrate. But in town today that frustration

:22:26.:22:28.

was forgotten as fans began to heed Wilcox's words. They have made some

:22:29.:22:36.

decent signings. It is maybe just that our archery. I am quite

:22:37.:22:44.

surprised with Mr Wilcox. He was a good player. Good look to him.

:22:45.:22:48.

Hopefully, we will get back up again. Good luck to them. I hope

:22:49.:22:55.

they carry on and be successful and give some thought a good name. Let

:22:56.:23:01.

us enjoy it and get behind the players and the manager and give

:23:02.:23:03.

them the boost to keep on this good run. It is the nature of promotion

:23:04.:23:11.

changes that every now and again a match comes along that is not going

:23:12.:23:18.

to plan. With matches still to come, there is every possibility this club

:23:19.:23:25.

could go 19 matches unbeaten. Good luck to Scunthorpe.

:23:26.:23:28.

Despite scoring in the ninth minute at Southport last night, Grimsby

:23:29.:23:36.

Town suffered a 2`1 defeat. The Mariners are ninth in the

:23:37.:23:39.

Conference, four points off the play`offs but with several games in

:23:40.:23:42.

hand. They're already successful in Mablethorpe, Cleethorpes and

:23:43.:23:44.

Bridlington, and now it's hoped that a land train will bring more

:23:45.:23:47.

visitors and money into Hull City Centre. The man behind the idea
