:00:00.:00:08.

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

:00:09.:00:13.

Jailed for 17 years ` the tdenager who stabbed his grandparents while

:00:14.:00:17.

high on drugs. His father says he's distratght I

:00:18.:00:20.

feel sick, physically sick, and I can't believe it. In the end.

:00:21.:00:27.

Three months after the tidal surge, a warning farmers could miss out on

:00:28.:00:32.

Government help for flood vhctims. In December, these fields wdre under

:00:33.:00:35.

water ` but farmers can't claim compensation if they've alrdady

:00:36.:00:40.

repaired the damage. Gravity scoops seven awards at the

:00:41.:00:43.

Oscars ` including one for ` sound engineer from East Yorkshird.

:00:44.:00:49.

Settling in their new home ` the gentoo penguins have arrived at the

:00:50.:00:54.

Deep. You won't really get ` chance to see them in the wild, so really,

:00:55.:01:03.

this is just a good experience. On whether come. That forecast is

:01:04.:01:14.

shortly. `` a lot of weather to come.

:01:15.:01:15.

A judge has described it as a ferocious and determined attack and

:01:16.:01:21.

tonight, a Hull teenager has begun a 17 `year jail sentence for the

:01:22.:01:24.

murder of his grandmother and attempted murder of his grandfather

:01:25.:01:30.

while high on drugs. Last month Lewis Dale was found guilty of

:01:31.:01:34.

stabbing them both while thdy slept. Sentencing him today, the jtdge said

:01:35.:01:38.

he understood the human tragedy for the family, but added he had a

:01:39.:01:45.

public duty to perform. In ` moment, we'll hear from Lewis Dale's father,

:01:46.:01:48.

but first, this report from Emma Massey.

:01:49.:01:52.

It was here in April last ydar where this tragedy for the Dale f`mily

:01:53.:01:56.

began. Lewis Dale was staying with his grandparents in East Hull while

:01:57.:01:59.

on bail for an alleged assatlt when he attacked them during the night

:02:00.:02:03.

with kitchen knives. He'd bden taking MCAT in the hours before

:02:04.:02:06.

Last month, his father left the court knowing his son would face a

:02:07.:02:10.

lengthy prison term for the murder of his grandmother and the `ttempted

:02:11.:02:13.

murder of his grandfather, who agreed to talk to us at the time. We

:02:14.:02:18.

were a close`knit family. Wd always were and we always will be. He's my

:02:19.:02:21.

first grandson, and you nevdr know what's around the corner, which I

:02:22.:02:27.

didn't. Today, Dale was sentenced to a minimum of 17 years. Absolutely

:02:28.:02:33.

horrendous. I feel sick, phxsically sick, and I can't believe it. I

:02:34.:02:38.

can't believe it. I'm just so, so sad. In sentencing Dale, Judge

:02:39.:02:42.

Jeremy Richardson addressed him directly. He said it was, "@

:02:43.:02:47.

ferocious and determined attack with a knife upon an elderly,

:02:48.:02:50.

defenceless, married couple ` your grandparents. You did so because you

:02:51.:02:56.

had voluntarily taken the illegal and dangerous drug, MCAT." The

:02:57.:03:01.

official name for the drug hs mephedrone. It has gained qtite a

:03:02.:03:05.

following among teenagers. Ht is a synthetic drug which was once a

:03:06.:03:09.

legal high, but headteachers led a campaign to get it banned bdcause it

:03:10.:03:13.

was so widespread. In 2010, the Government made it illegal, and it

:03:14.:03:18.

became a class B drug. But ht can still be bought for around ?10 a

:03:19.:03:22.

gram. This morning, the judge has quite rightly given a subst`ntial

:03:23.:03:27.

minimum sentence to Lewis D`le. The last year has been a very dhfficult

:03:28.:03:30.

time for the Dale family. Hopefully this will now draw a line under the

:03:31.:03:34.

matter, and they can start to move forward and rebuild their lhves

:03:35.:03:38.

Thank you. The judge today stressed he was not unmindful of the human

:03:39.:03:41.

tragedy for the family and the defendant. He also said he felt for

:03:42.:03:47.

them in every way, but added that he had a public duty to perforl.

:03:48.:03:57.

Earlier, I spoke to Lewis D`le's father, David, and asked hil for his

:03:58.:04:05.

reaction to today's verdict. I asked him how his son was feeling. I spoke

:04:06.:04:11.

to him. He is devastated, hd's crying, he's in total shock, as I

:04:12.:04:15.

am. But you are standing by him Yes, I am, yes. Your son killed his

:04:16.:04:19.

grandmother, your mum. How do you feel towards him? He's my son and I

:04:20.:04:23.

love him, and I will always stand by him. This was not my son, it was the

:04:24.:04:29.

drug MCAT. How do you cope with losing your own mother by the hands

:04:30.:04:35.

of your son? Because I was very close to my mother, and I could talk

:04:36.:04:41.

to her about anything. She was very understanding. She loved her

:04:42.:04:44.

grandson, and if I'm honest, Peter, I'm trying to do one thing `t a

:04:45.:04:53.

time, you know? But you've lost your own mother? Yeah, I know. And it's

:04:54.:04:59.

difficult, because as I say, I was very close to my mother and she was

:05:00.:05:03.

very close to her grandson. It may be harsh, but he was convicted of

:05:04.:05:07.

murder. Is drugs and MCAT an excuse? No. No, the MCAT did this. Lewis

:05:08.:05:15.

could never do this to his grandparents, never, never. But he

:05:16.:05:21.

did do it. He did do it, but wasn't him who did it, it was the drug

:05:22.:05:25.

Still convicted of murder? Xes, convicted by the jury, yes. What

:05:26.:05:29.

about those watching, and there will be many, who will say ` and I'm not

:05:30.:05:34.

being rude to you ` "He was just another druggie"? He wasn't a

:05:35.:05:41.

druggie. No, he wasn't. But he was a druggie. No, he wasn't. And he

:05:42.:05:45.

wasn't a heavy user either. He was a binge... MCAT is a binge drtg. What

:05:46.:05:49.

is your message for youngstdrs who are taking this drug? Don't take it.

:05:50.:05:54.

Don't go anywhere near it, `nd if somebody is trying to sell xou it,

:05:55.:05:59.

then tell your parents. Just stay away from it, because it's ruined

:06:00.:06:03.

our family, and it's ruined my life. Ruined your life? Ruined my life.

:06:04.:06:08.

I'm doing 16, 17 years with my son. Will he get out before that? No No.

:06:09.:06:18.

How is he now? Is he full of sorrow? He has always been full of sorrow. I

:06:19.:06:22.

see him every week, and I don't think he honestly knows what

:06:23.:06:26.

happened even to this day. He doesn't understand what is

:06:27.:06:33.

happening. And how are you? Shocking. Absolutely shocking. I

:06:34.:06:38.

don't do anything normally. There is no life for me anymore, to be

:06:39.:06:42.

honest. Your life is over? Ly life is over. I wish you well. Thank you

:06:43.:06:52.

for coming in. Thank you. In a moment: Alan Pardew is charged

:06:53.:06:55.

by the FA after head`butting Hull City's David Meyler.

:06:56.:07:00.

Farmers in East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire say they could miss out

:07:01.:07:03.

on a share of ?10 million of Government money to help flood

:07:04.:07:07.

victims. The cash has been set aside to repair agricultural land ` but

:07:08.:07:10.

it's only available if repahr work has not yet been started. The NFU

:07:11.:07:15.

says that penalises farmers who were flooded in December. Phillip Norton

:07:16.:07:23.

reports. December's tidal surge left large

:07:24.:07:26.

areas of agricultural land submerged under water. These were Petdr

:07:27.:07:29.

Clappisons's fields in Welwhck, East Yorkshire. The Humber swept away

:07:30.:07:34.

defences. Three months later, and this is the damage it caused. The

:07:35.:07:42.

bank, which you can see in the distance, this section coll`psed.

:07:43.:07:50.

You could walk into the Humber. Loads of wood has washed in. He s

:07:51.:07:56.

one of many farmers who shotld now be looking out over a field of

:07:57.:07:59.

sprouting crops, but it's unlikely he'll be able to harvest much from

:08:00.:08:03.

the damaged land this year. He's already paid out for soil tdsts to

:08:04.:08:06.

see the extent of the salt damage, and was one of many farmers who were

:08:07.:08:10.

pleased to hear a Government fund had been set up to aid their

:08:11.:08:14.

recovery ` but he won't be dligible to claim because he's already

:08:15.:08:18.

carried out the work. It is only for people who are still flooded. I

:08:19.:08:25.

won't be eligible. But it is just a drop in the ocean to the dalage that

:08:26.:08:30.

has been done. It is a nonevent as far as I'm concerned. A sum of 10

:08:31.:08:33.

million has been made avail`ble Farmers affected by flooding will be

:08:34.:08:37.

able to apply for emergency funding up to ?5,000, but it's only

:08:38.:08:40.

available to those who have not yet started work on repairs. Thdy have

:08:41.:08:47.

already suffered horrendous expenses, so they should be entitled

:08:48.:08:51.

to this money, even if they have already started the work. Wd are

:08:52.:08:55.

working closely with the Environment Agency, and we hope we will get some

:08:56.:09:00.

funding back to the farmers who have already started work. We do think it

:09:01.:09:04.

is unfair. It's raised concdrn that the South will benefit much more

:09:05.:09:07.

over people in the North whdn it comes to flood help ` something

:09:08.:09:11.

Brigg and Goole MP Andrew Pdrcy says should be looked at. They whll be

:09:12.:09:13.

farmers around the country, north and South, who were flooded in

:09:14.:09:17.

December who have come against these rules. It has happened more by

:09:18.:09:25.

accident than design, so we just have to get some flexibilitx into

:09:26.:09:27.

the system. Defra says it acknowledges that some repahrs will

:09:28.:09:30.

have already been made, and says it will work with farmers to assess if

:09:31.:09:33.

other funds are available. Phil's in East Yorkshire thhs

:09:34.:09:36.

evening. How much money are we talking about? A few weeks `go, I

:09:37.:09:45.

would have been knee deep in water in this field, close to the Humber

:09:46.:09:52.

estuary. What had been taken of the land. That took some work. One is to

:09:53.:09:58.

Yorkshire Thelma Todd as he spent ?600,000 on machinery and ptbs to

:09:59.:10:01.

help clear this water away from some of his land. Another farmer says he

:10:02.:10:06.

won't be able to claim compdnsation. He is among those who say that the

:10:07.:10:10.

?10 million of government money on the table is just a drop in the

:10:11.:10:13.

ocean compared to the devastating damage they say has been catsed to

:10:14.:10:18.

agricultural land across thd country in these devastating storms. Thank

:10:19.:10:22.

you very much. Let us know what you think `bout

:10:23.:10:26.

this story. Are the Governmdnt being fair to farmers in East Yorkshire

:10:27.:10:29.

and Lincolnshire who may have already started their repair work?

:10:30.:10:32.

Should the farmers have waited for proper permissions from the

:10:33.:10:34.

Government before starting their work? Maybe you are a farmer

:10:35.:10:36.

watching tonight. Get in totch. If you are a farmer or have a view,

:10:37.:11:01.

we look forward to hearing from you. Some news now.

:11:02.:11:04.

The family of a Lincolnshird man who died after an operation for prostate

:11:05.:11:07.

cancer have attended an inqtest into his death. Ray Law died two days

:11:08.:11:10.

after surgery at Lincoln Cotnty Hospital in 2010. His consultant, Mr

:11:11.:11:14.

Ian Mark, admitted his was the third of three operations he'd conducted

:11:15.:11:17.

that day, which he said was not normal. He also raised concdrns

:11:18.:11:21.

about the time it took for Lr Law to receive a blood transfusion on the

:11:22.:11:32.

day after surgery. Police are appealing for witnesses aftdr a

:11:33.:11:35.

pedestrian was killed on a lain road in Lincolnshire. Police say the man,

:11:36.:11:39.

thought to be in his 30s, w`s walking along the A16 after

:11:40.:11:44.

midnight. They are keen to speak to anyone who saw a silver Jeep in the

:11:45.:11:49.

area on Saturday night. The rail passenger group is condemning a

:11:50.:11:53.

decision to transfer trains from the rail line between Hull and Leeds and

:11:54.:11:57.

Manchester to rats in the south`east. Nine of the trahns are

:11:58.:12:03.

to be switched to Chilton r`il, based in London and the south`east.

:12:04.:12:07.

The rail companies say they are negotiating with the Departlent for

:12:08.:12:11.

Transport to maintain capachty and timetabling improvements. Boris

:12:12.:12:14.

Johnson is doing a really great job with London, making sure thdy have a

:12:15.:12:17.

lot of trains. He doesn't nded ours. He's very good at getting what he

:12:18.:12:21.

wants, isn't he? So, no, thdy shouldn't poach our trains `t all.

:12:22.:12:24.

Everybody will be squashed tp, and obviously I want the best sdrvice.

:12:25.:12:27.

We are quite capable of building more wagons ourselves, so why don't

:12:28.:12:34.

we do it? We pay for it. Interesting story. Thank you for watching.

:12:35.:12:40.

Still ahead tonight: A sound editor from East Yorkshire wins an Oscar

:12:41.:12:44.

for his work on the most successful film of the night. We have come a

:12:45.:12:51.

view `` long way. It was am`zing just hear the words GRAVITY.

:12:52.:12:59.

We also have the Penguins still to come before 7pm. The! Not you!

:13:00.:13:15.

This picture was taken by Pdrry No more e`mails asking for Paul to be

:13:16.:13:22.

seen in his a concerned viewer asks whether

:13:23.:13:31.

Peter knows if pensioners nded to receive their driving tests, and is

:13:32.:13:39.

he worried? I think you will find that is offensive, and cert`inly is

:13:40.:13:47.

to me. It looks set to be dry with some sunshine, although thex will be

:13:48.:13:52.

some fog and fast first thing in the morning. Fairly bright across that

:13:53.:13:55.

part of the world. We are stuck between weather systems. Prdssure

:13:56.:14:01.

down to the south`west. One or two to the north. Things are settled for

:14:02.:14:04.

the next couple of days. Th`t is great news, but it does mean some

:14:05.:14:08.

frost and fog at night. We have managed 10 degrees today. Wd have

:14:09.:14:14.

more in the wave cloud across southern part of Lincolnshire. There

:14:15.:14:18.

could be to one or more isolated showers this evening. Very luch the

:14:19.:14:22.

exception to dry rule. Many of us will be dry this evening, and

:14:23.:14:27.

overnight. A lot of clear pdriods with the lowest temperatures down to

:14:28.:14:32.

zero or `1 in rural areas. That will lead to fog, and fairly widdspread

:14:33.:14:38.

frost. Watch out for ice patches on untreated surfaces. The sun will

:14:39.:14:42.

rise in the morning at around 6:44am. Here are your next high

:14:43.:14:50.

water tides. That fog could be quite stubborn in a few areas. Take a few

:14:51.:14:55.

hours to clear, but it will do so, and then it is dry and bright with

:14:56.:14:59.

some good spells of sunshind. Fairweather, patchy cloud ddveloping

:15:00.:15:06.

later, and a small chance of rain, but a lot of fine weather. The

:15:07.:15:11.

warmth in the spring sunshine, nine Celsius. That is 48 Fahrenhdit. A

:15:12.:15:17.

light breeze from the south and south`west. More fog and frost.

:15:18.:15:21.

Wednesday looks lovely, dry with sunshine. By the cloudy on Thursday.

:15:22.:15:28.

Highs of 13 degrees on Frid`y. How about that, Peter?

:15:29.:15:32.

Having just listened to the Paul Hudson weather show, I have to say

:15:33.:15:38.

he's songs need to match thd weather prediction. Do you get Island discs

:15:39.:15:45.

on the show? YES, I do. I got myself red`handed. Thank you.

:15:46.:15:49.

The manager of Newcastle Unhted has been charged with misconduct by the

:15:50.:15:52.

Football Association followhng an incident against Hull City. Alan

:15:53.:15:54.

Pardew head`butted Tigers' midfielder David Myler, and could

:15:55.:15:57.

face serious sanctions. Our sports reporter, Simon Clark, was `t the

:15:58.:16:08.

game. It is one of the most unsavoury

:16:09.:16:12.

incidents in Premier League history, and it happened in whole. Alan

:16:13.:16:23.

Pardew was pushed. What happened next was disbelieving. Parddw was

:16:24.:16:28.

sent to the back of the stand for head`butting him. Haven't h`d too

:16:29.:16:35.

many problems in the past. Xou get involved with a situation, `nd it

:16:36.:16:39.

took the gloss of what has been a magnificent performance frol my

:16:40.:16:43.

team. It is tarnished him and for them. They have had a great

:16:44.:16:49.

afternoon in terms of the rdsults, which has obviously been let down by

:16:50.:16:55.

the manager's actions. The club was fined ?100,000, and no action will

:16:56.:17:03.

be taken. The FA have chargdd Pardew with improper conduct. He h`s been

:17:04.:17:07.

involved in touchline inciddnt before. A commentator has

:17:08.:17:14.

interviewed him many times. When interviewed him after games, and I

:17:15.:17:18.

have them frequently, he is charming, but he does have this

:17:19.:17:20.

switch that seems to flick when he is in the technical area in the heat

:17:21.:17:25.

of the game. A Premier Leagte manager cannot behave in th`t

:17:26.:17:28.

situation. It's the sort of thing you might see on Sunday morning and

:17:29.:17:31.

the point is, we don't want that at any time. It does not set a good

:17:32.:17:36.

example to anybody. The actions of Pardew glossdd over

:17:37.:17:41.

Hull city's defeat of the sdason, and Aaron Stone's performance saw

:17:42.:17:44.

the visitors come away with a 4`1 victory. That is not how thhs game

:17:45.:17:51.

will be remembered. It is to be remembered for an incident but the

:17:52.:17:54.

manager embarrassed himself and his sport. Scunthorpe United relain

:17:55.:17:56.

second in League Two, despite being held by Newport County. Paddy Madden

:17:57.:18:00.

scored an equaliser for the Iron after the Welsh team took the lead,

:18:01.:18:04.

and Scunthorpe scored again through Dave Syers. Then, just as they

:18:05.:18:08.

thought they'd won the game, Chris Zebroski snatched a draw to deny the

:18:09.:18:15.

Iron victory. Late Kick`off returns tonight with Iron players S`m

:18:16.:18:17.

Winnall and Paul Hayes going head`to`head in a new quiz. That's

:18:18.:18:32.

on BBC One at 11:20. In non`league football, there were wins for

:18:33.:18:33.

Grimsby. Hull FC suffered a second ddfeat of

:18:34.:18:43.

the season at Warrington in a close match. Warrington, in blue, scored

:18:44.:18:47.

all their points in the first half to lead 18`6. But a Hull fight`back

:18:48.:18:53.

fell just short of victory, and it finished 18`16 to the home side

:18:54.:19:08.

A music editor from East Yorkshire has won an Oscar for his work on the

:19:09.:19:12.

space film Gravity. Chris Bdnstead, who grew up in Skirlaugh ne`r Hull,

:19:13.:19:15.

picked up the award in Los @ngeles last night ` one of seven Academy

:19:16.:19:19.

Awards for the film. Speaking after the ceremony, he said winning was a

:19:20.:19:22.

"sensational" feeling, as otr arts and culture correspondent,

:19:23.:19:24.

Anne`Marie Tasker, reports. On a night when Hollywood's A`list

:19:25.:19:27.

were honoured, British cinela took home the lion's share of thd Oscars.

:19:28.:19:33.

The space drama Gravity won seven Academy Awards, including one for

:19:34.:19:40.

sound mixing. Explorer has been hit! On the sound team is Chris Benstead,

:19:41.:19:44.

a music editor who grew up hn East Yorkshire, but last night w`s

:19:45.:19:47.

celebrating the film's Oscar success in LA. It's a sensational fdeling.

:19:48.:19:52.

It was absolutely amazing. H was very nervous, actually, bec`use

:19:53.:19:56.

we've come a long way. We'vd been waiting a few days now for the

:19:57.:20:00.

awards, but it was amazing just to hear the word "Gravity". Bedn away

:20:01.:20:03.

from the kids. A lot of latd nights when I wasn't there. But I hope this

:20:04.:20:08.

can make up for that, and m`ke everyone proud from the North as

:20:09.:20:12.

well. It's fantastic. And this is where Chris's music career began,

:20:13.:20:17.

the moon, pardon the pun. Absolutely fantastic news. He has workdd very

:20:39.:20:43.

hard, very hard, to get to where he is, and the whole family is so proud

:20:44.:20:51.

of him. Mervyn King taught Chris music at South Holderness Tdchnology

:20:55.:21:00.

thousands of students I must have taught in my career, he certainly

:21:01.:21:03.

did stand out. He was very thoughtful and helpful, verx

:21:04.:21:08.

creative. And a bit of a perfectionist, which I'm sure has

:21:09.:21:11.

stood him in good stead in his career now. After the ceremony, the

They've travelled 5,000 milds, and now five gentoo penguins ard making

their new home in Hull. The birds were born at an aquarium in Texas

:21:35.:21:38.

and were flown to the UK last month. They'll now form part of a new

:21:39.:21:41.

Antarctic exhibition at the Deep. Their journey has been followed by

the naturalist Mike Dilger. The latest arrivals at the Deep

gentoo penguins, who travelled 000 miles to be here. You won't really

:21:49.:21:54.

get a chance to see them in the wild, so really, this is just a good

:21:55.:21:57.

experience looking at what they would be like in a natural habitat.

:21:58.:22:01.

They are really cool, because when we put up these things, it looks

:22:02.:22:05.

like they are actually a penguin, so they come close to you. Thex are

:22:06.:22:08.

really good and exciting, and when they dive, they go fast. Thdy

started life at an aquarium in Galveston, Texas. Moody Gardens

:22:14.:22:18.

stepped in to help when the Deep went on an international se`rch for

:22:19.:22:23.

penguins. I got to visit thhs September, and visit the st`ff and

:22:24.:22:27.

see the exhibits and meet everyone there, and that sealed the deal for

:22:28.:22:30.

us. It's a great facility, we had the birds to send, so we were

:22:31.:22:34.

willing to do so. The team designed and built the penguins' new home.

:22:35.:22:37.

Doing it themselves has helped to keep the costs down. You can't get a

:22:38.:22:42.

penguin on eBay, and we said at the beginning, we are an environmental

:22:43.:22:45.

charity ` if we're going to bring penguins here, we're going to bring

:22:46.:22:48.

them to the most exciting, suitable site that we can. That doesn't come

:22:49.:22:54.

cheap. It's costing us about ?600,000. Part of that cost is

:22:55.:23:00.

transporting the penguins. They travelled loaded into a crate, and

:23:01.:23:03.

were then flown cargo class on a jumbo jet. It was a little scary to

:23:04.:23:09.

let them go into the cargo hold without us, but we've prepared well,

:23:10.:23:14.

and I think they will do just fine. It is only when the birds are

:23:15.:23:17.

unloaded at Heathrow's anim`l reception centre that everyone knows

:23:18.:23:21.

they are OK. I see penguins They are all standing up. More than a day

:23:22.:23:27.

after the gentoos left their home in Texas, they are finally in their new

:23:28.:23:31.

enclosure in Hull. It feels like it's been quite a long journey, but

:23:32.:23:35.

we are here now, and I think the whole team are thrilled, just

:23:36.:23:38.

watching these little fellas running around, which is kind of magical,

:23:39.:23:44.

really. It's lovely. In the next few months, the five penguins whll be

:23:45.:23:48.

joined by five more, who will also take the trip from Texas. Aren't

:23:49.:23:54.

they gorgeous? Earlier, I spoke to Mike and asked

:23:55.:23:59.

him why the team had to go to Texas to find the penguins.

:24:00.:24:02.

Peter, it was a tough job, but someone had to do it. The Ddep, the

:24:03.:24:06.

aquarium at Hull, were determined to get hold of gentoo penguins, a

:24:07.:24:08.

really interesting species. The third`largest. Only found on the

:24:09.:24:11.

Antarctic islands, the Falklands, South Georgia. It seems the only

:24:12.:24:16.

place where they cast the ndt far and wide was a lovely aquarhum

:24:17.:24:19.

called Moody Gardens in Galveston, Texas. That's why we went

:24:20.:24:22.

international, transatlantic, and brought the penguins back from the

:24:23.:24:27.

big old US of A. Was that tricky? It was very tricky, honestly. Going all

:24:28.:24:32.

the way to sunny Texas, where it is cold and wet and windy in Htll. It

:24:33.:24:39.

is really tough trying to transport these animals, because they are

:24:40.:24:42.

sensitive creatures. They nded to travel in cold temperatures, so we

:24:43.:24:46.

had to keep them at six degrees When they left the aquarium, they

:24:47.:24:50.

went into a refrigerated cr`te in the belly of the plane. Thex had to

:24:51.:24:56.

have glow sticks, like the dance rave glow sticks, all the thme, to

:24:57.:25:00.

make sure they have light, because these penguins are afraid of the

:25:01.:25:04.

dark. Then obviously when they arrived at the animal reception

:25:05.:25:07.

centre at Heathrow, they had to be checked over by a vet. Eventually,

:25:08.:25:13.

they made it. Fiona, the ond female, was a bit poorly, but I unddrstand

:25:14.:25:16.

she's made a complete recovdry and they are doing very well. What is it

:25:17.:25:23.

about penguins? Is it something to do with the way they walk? Dverybody

:25:24.:25:26.

loves penguins, don't they? Peter, everybody loves penguins. I think it

:25:27.:25:33.

is something about the bike he will element. Bipedal element. And they

:25:34.:25:42.

get excited, they stand uprhght and flap their wings like this. They are

:25:43.:25:46.

very sociable. They are verx noisy and gregarious. It is a bit naff to

:25:47.:25:52.

anthropomorphise size, but they have bags of personality, and thd people

:25:53.:25:57.

of Hull and Humberside and further a field, Yorkshire and Lincolnshire,

:25:58.:26:00.

as so incredibly excited. It is almost like an honorary mamlal.

:26:01.:26:02.

These birds have five star `ppeal. We look forward to seeing them, and

:26:03.:26:06.

look forward to seeing the programme as well. Thank you very much. Always

:26:07.:26:10.

a pleasure. And you can see more on the gentoo

talk about flooding and farlers on the programme. Just a few of the

messages. James says, homeowners have to pay insurance. Why don't
