Good evening. A row over a patch of land on the banks of the Humber

:00:08.:00:13.

could jeopardise the creation of thousands of new jobs. That's the

:00:14.:00:17.

warning from Able UK, which has planning permission to develop a

:00:18.:00:19.

multi`million pound wind energy park near to Immingham. Rival port

:00:20.:00:23.

operator ABP is objecting to the plans because they have their own

:00:24.:00:27.

ideas about how the land should be used. Now the Government has been

:00:28.:00:31.

asked to step in. Here's our business correspondent, Paul Murphy.

:00:32.:00:37.

Marked in blue on the photo, this patch of land is known as the

:00:38.:00:40.

Killingholme Triangle, and Able UK has been given special powers to buy

:00:41.:00:45.

it. It needs the land to access a proposed jetty in the river, but the

:00:46.:00:48.

fields are owned by rival operator ABP, and they are now objecting to

:00:49.:00:52.

the Able UK plan, and say they want to use the area for their own

:00:53.:00:59.

riverside development. Anything that frustrates the development, and

:01:00.:01:02.

everything that slows progress, is really only going to play into the

:01:03.:01:05.

hands of our continental competitors. We need to be ready,

:01:06.:01:09.

certainly in 2018, possibly 2017, and delays now could be potentially

:01:10.:01:15.

fatal. Able submitted its planning application back in December 2011.

:01:16.:01:19.

The Government approved the plans just before Christmas 2013.

:01:20.:01:23.

Yesterday was the closing date for final objections, and ABP sent two

:01:24.:01:30.

petitions to the Government. It all comes as the Humber is trying to set

:01:31.:01:34.

itself up as the go`to place for wind turbine manufacture, and there

:01:35.:01:37.

is worry that this plan could all now unravel. The renewable sector is

:01:38.:01:43.

marching on. We want to make the Humber the centre of the renewables.

:01:44.:01:47.

That is the determined policy of the Government. I want to do all I can

:01:48.:01:52.

to assist that, and any delay is unhelpful. ABP of course has every

:01:53.:01:56.

right to object, but it is in danger of becoming a lone voice on the

:01:57.:02:00.

Humber. The local enterprise partnership has described ABP's move

:02:01.:02:03.

as "disappointing", and has urged it to reconsider its position. We're

:02:04.:02:11.

actually engaging with Able. We are trying to reach a compromise,

:02:12.:02:15.

because if we can do that, then this procedure can be dropped, and we can

:02:16.:02:19.

all move forward. But it is important that we both compromise.

:02:20.:02:22.

The Government will now decide whether ABP's objection is a valid

:02:23.:02:27.

one. But if that decision takes too long, then Able UK's plans for this

:02:28.:02:31.

estuary and the jobs it is promising may start to look a little less

:02:32.:02:40.

likely. A teenager has been taken to

:02:41.:02:43.

hospital after an assault in Grimsby. Humberside Police say the

:02:44.:02:46.

16`year`old boy ` who is not thought to be from the area ` has serious

:02:47.:02:50.

injuries to his back, hand, and head after the incident on Macaulay

:02:51.:02:54.

Street in the early hours of the morning. He's in a critical but

:02:55.:02:58.

stable condition in hospital. A Lincoln man who attacked a

:02:59.:03:01.

21`year`old, leaving a claw hammer embedded in his skull, has been

:03:02.:03:04.

convicted of attempted murder. Birmingham Crown Court heard how

:03:05.:03:07.

Matthew Probert, who's from Scunthorpe, had to be treated in two

:03:08.:03:10.

hospitals after the assault outside a bar in Lincoln last year.

:03:11.:03:16.

23`year`old Kris Bradley was found guilty of attempted murder and will

:03:17.:03:21.

be sentenced at a later hearing. An inquest into the death of a

:03:22.:03:25.

Lincolnshire man has heard concerns about the care he received while at

:03:26.:03:29.

Lincoln County Hospital. Ray Law, who was 60, died two days after an

:03:30.:03:33.

operation for prostate cancer in 2010. Today, Professor Andrew

:03:34.:03:37.

Bradbury, who had prepared a report for the coroner, said he was

:03:38.:03:40.

surprised and concerned that Mr Law was not transferred to a high`

:03:41.:03:48.

dependency unit after surgery. People in Revesby near Horncastle

:03:49.:03:51.

are being asked to check their outbuildings as concern grows for a

:03:52.:03:53.

vulnerable woman who has been reported missing. 52`year`old Denise

:03:54.:03:58.

Gray, who's American, disappeared yesterday afternoon. Police teams

:03:59.:04:03.

searched through the night with dogs and heat`seeking equipment in

:04:04.:04:09.

freezing conditions. She led the campaign to scrap Humber

:04:10.:04:13.

Bridge tolls for hospital patients ` but Jenny Walton, from Kirmington in

:04:14.:04:16.

North Lincolnshire, has lost her 20`year battle with cancer. Her

:04:17.:04:21.

husband has told BBC Look North he's proud of the legacy she's left

:04:22.:04:25.

behind ` and that lowering the tolls "wouldn't even have been dreamt

:04:26.:04:29.

about" without Jenny's work. Anne`Marie Tasker reports.

:04:30.:04:35.

Jenny Walton had cancer for more than 20 years, and regularly crossed

:04:36.:04:38.

the Humber to hospitals in Hull. Travelling from her home in North

:04:39.:04:41.

Lincolnshire, she knew first`hand just how expensive it could be to

:04:42.:04:45.

get life`saving care. Her husband, Trevor, says that is why she started

:04:46.:04:49.

the campaign to scrap the Humber Bridge tolls back in 1999. That

:04:50.:04:54.

campaign actually started in this room that we are in now. It would

:04:55.:04:59.

not have happened without Jenny sticking her heels in in the first

:05:00.:05:03.

place. It would not have even been dreamt about. Regardless of how long

:05:04.:05:09.

it took her, or what she had to do, she was going to make it happen, and

:05:10.:05:13.

she did. Jenny Walton won the support of council leaders and MPs

:05:14.:05:16.

for her campaign. She organised protests, and set out the case to

:05:17.:05:20.

abolish the tolls at a public inquiry. Jenny Walton campaigned for

:05:21.:05:24.

13 years before she saw Humber Bridge tolls halved. When they were

:05:25.:05:30.

reduced in 2012, a pledge was made that hospital patients in the South

:05:31.:05:34.

Bank would be able to cross the bridge for treatment for free. But

:05:35.:05:38.

that is something they are still waiting to see happen. The Humber

:05:39.:05:42.

Bridge Board has told us it continues to review its

:05:43.:05:44.

concessionary arrangements on a regular basis, and hasn't confirmed

:05:45.:05:50.

or ruled out any changes to these. But Janet Sanderson, who worked

:05:51.:05:53.

alongside Jenny supporting cancer patients in Northern Lincolnshire,

:05:54.:05:56.

says scrapping tolls for patients is still something they would like to

:05:57.:06:02.

see done. Once Jenny got hold of something, she wasn't going to let

:06:03.:06:05.

go until she got what she wanted, and halving the Bridge tolls was an

:06:06.:06:11.

incredible achievement. She always wanted to get it down to no Bridge

:06:12.:06:14.

tolls, and hopefully, we can pick that up on her behalf and carry it

:06:15.:06:21.

on into the future. That is something Jenny's husband also wants

:06:22.:06:29.

to see achieved in her memory. Time for a look at the weather with

:06:30.:06:31.

Paul Hudson. Good evening. Another pleasant day

:06:32.:06:36.

to come tomorrow for most of us. Sunshine at first. It will tend to

:06:37.:06:39.

cloud over later. With the south`westerly breeze, we could have

:06:40.:06:43.

temperatures up to 11 degrees. Fine tonight. Long, clear periods. That

:06:44.:06:49.

means we're in for a widespread ground frost, even a tough of air

:06:50.:06:53.

frost in one or two places. There will be some mist and fog in places.

:06:54.:06:57.

There is a look at tonight's towns and cities temperatures. Rurally,

:06:58.:06:59.

the temperatures around freezing. A grey start in places tomorrow

:07:00.:07:03.

morning. Otherwise, it is fine and bright with some sunshine, and fog

:07:04.:07:06.

patches soon lifting. Through the afternoon, cloud will generally tend

:07:07.:07:09.

to increase from the west, but apart from the odd spot of rain, it should

:07:10.:07:13.

stay dry. Highest temperatures around 11 degrees Celsius. Thursday

:07:14.:07:18.

looks dry. Brighter at times. Always a lot of cloud. That's the forecast.

:07:19.:07:22.

That's all from the late team. And with more on that, here is the

:07:23.:07:32.

National forecast. Good evening. The skies across

:07:33.:07:41.

England and Wales are clearing. It will turn cold once again. A

:07:42.:07:45.

different story for Scotland and Northern Ireland. But ahead of that,

:07:46.:07:52.

the skies
