the evening session still to come. There is more throughout the evening
Good evening. An energy firl says it has no plans to carry out fracking
in parts of East Yorkshire, despite claims by local campaigners. Rathlin
Energy have applied to the Environment Agency to carry out
testing at sites near Beverley and Aldborough, which campaigners
believe are a precursor to fracking. They're calling on the comp`ny to be
more transparent. Here at Walkington in East Xorkshire
the ground has already been prepared for oil and gas exploration.
Canadian`owned Rathlin Energy Limited already have a licence to
search for oil and gas. The company has now applied to the Environment
Agency to carry out what's know n as a "mini fall off test" or
"mini`frack" both here and `t another site in Aldborough. This
sort of test, claims Greenpdace is used to check whether a well is
suitable for fracking. IU scaremongering? It is thdre on
the application in black and white, will you be injecting liquids into
this well? Yes. Then they go on to describe a procedure that is a
precursor to fracking. I wotld love to hear the explanation to this
Fracking involves drilling down into the gas bearing shale rock `nd
injecting a mixture of water, sand and chemicals under high prdssure.
This fractures the rock, releasing shale gas which flows back to ground
level. The process has been blamed for causing small earthquakds and
contaminating water supplies in the USA.
In a statement, the company said that they are not, they say that a
well testing programme is there to... Not shield gas, and no
fracking is involved. `` sh`le gas. But campaigners say they ardn't
satisfied with the companies assurances, and will continte to
oppose its application. One of the country's youngest mayors
is warning that many women can't afford to go into politics. There's
been a fierce debate over how much local councillors should get paid
after members of Lincolnshire County Council voted to increase their
allowances by 23%. I think we need to be careftl that
we don't end up in a situathon where only independently wealthy people or
people who are retired or pdople whose partner's can support them,
are able to go into local Government.
Flood warnings have been issued for parts of Hull tonight ahead of high
tides. Parts of the city centre were flooded during the tidal surge in
December. The Environment Agency says today's warnings, the second
highest level of alert, are precautionary.
Hull City manager Steve Bruce says he accepts Alan Pardew's apology for
head`butting midfielder Davhd Meyler. The incident at the KC
yesterday overshadowed a 4`0 defeat for the Tigers. The Newcastle
manager has been fined ?100,000 by his club and is now facing `n
investigation from the FA. Lis Henderson reports.
An angry flash point in a frantic game. Newcastle manager Alan Pardew
headbutting David Meyler angered when he midfielder shoved p`st him
in an attempt to retrieve the ball. A yellow card for Meyler, more
expensive for Pardew. Sent to the stands and facing a ?100,000 fine
from Newcastle and an investigation from the FA. I didn't mean no
damage, but I didn't my head forward. I was just trying to push
him away really with my head. I shouldn't have done that. I
apologise to everyone. We whll accept the apology. I think it has
been big and brave enough to come out and apologise, which yot would
expect. Everybody can get c`rried away. But not everyone's so
forgiving. There were calls today for Pardew to be sacked or given a
10`match ban. Do it on the street and you would be arrested.
Hopefully, the FA will do something more serious. Hull City's 4`1 defeat
has largely been overshadowdd by the touchline incident. There wdre
chances for the Tigers, but the only goal came from Curtis Davies. In the
end, it was mistakes, like this which gifted Newcastle their third
goal which cost the Tigers dear A game which for many will be best
forgotten all round. Scunthorpe United missed out on the
chance to go top of League Two yesterday after a 2`2 draw `t
Newport County. Second`half goals from Paddy Madden and this from Dave
Syers looked to have given The Iron the win. But a 90th minute dqualiser
meant they had to share the points. Hull FC's Super League game against
Warrington ended in a close defeat. After going down 18`6 at half`time,
the Black and Whites pulled back to leave the final score Warrington
Wolves 18, Hull FC 16. Let's have a look at the we`ther.

of Lincolnshire more cloud `nd rain, but elsewhere variabld cloud,

Celsius. `` in the way of cloud We are back at 10:15pm. I hope you
can join me then. will be back.
Good evening. The chances are, you are enjoying your evening on a nice
warm sofa while it rains outside. Pretty heavy rain in parts of the
country and for tomorrow morning, wrap up warmly, it will be a cheap
upstart right across the country. This is where the rain is right now
from Portsmouth to London across to the north-east and the east of the
country and it will push out into the North Sea. Not all of the rain
will clear away but it will be cold enough for some icy stretches across
parts of Northern Ireland, the Northwest of England, too, but
