to a damning review of Scotland Yard's handling of the case. That's

:00:00.3:59:59

all from the BBC News at Six, so Good evening and welcome to BBC Look

:00:00.:00:10.

North. The headlines tonight: The Chief Secretary to the Treasury says

:00:11.:00:13.

he can't guarantee a rail upgrade for Hull before 2017.

:00:14.:00:24.

I don't know about that. I see the argument for it, but that is an

:00:25.:00:27.

argument that network rail would have two work`out.

:00:28.:00:29.

How pollution in the air we breathe is killing almost 200 peopld

:00:30.:00:36.

prematurely in North Lincolnshire. I am live in Revesby as the search

:00:37.:00:43.

for an American tourist continues. And the British cinema pionder who

:00:44.:00:49.

is seeing a dash`mac whose home is being given a new lease of life

:00:50.:00:57.

And detailed weather forecast the next 15 minutes. The Chief Secretary

:00:58.:01:11.

to the treasury has told BBC Look North that he understands why the

:01:12.:01:15.

rail line to Hull needs upgrading but that he can't guarantee it will

:01:16.:01:18.

happen by 2017. Danny Alexander has been meeting with business leaders

:01:19.:01:21.

in the city to hear their concerns about the local economy. Ond key

:01:22.:01:25.

factor is electrifying the rail line between Hull and the East Coast Main

:01:26.:01:29.

line in time for City of Culture. In a moment, we'll be hearing from

:01:30.:01:32.

Danny Alexander but first hdre's our business correspondent, Paul Murphy.

:01:33.:01:39.

Passengers waiting from this morning's train from Brussels to

:01:40.:01:41.

London had a clear message `` they want a better service and f`ster

:01:42.:01:48.

services between coal and the capital, meaning only be a

:01:49.:01:55.

electrification of the rail line. Electrifying the whole routd will

:01:56.:02:00.

make it simpler and could bring down the costs of going down there. That

:02:01.:02:10.

could keep people in Hull, rather than them leaving the area for

:02:11.:02:15.

work. I generally go to Doncaster Rovers it is more reliable `nd much

:02:16.:02:18.

quicker. Electrification wotld help me a lot. Property boss Malcolm

:02:19.:02:26.

Scott is building a new cafd bar and music venue in the city. He says

:02:27.:02:31.

local and national politici`ns need to stop squabbling and work together

:02:32.:02:37.

to benefit the Humber region. This is the energy estuary and wd need to

:02:38.:02:43.

hammer that home. Because wd are a great trading city and region,

:02:44.:02:45.

central government and regional government needs to sing from the

:02:46.:02:50.

same hymn sheet, that we can help the UK as a whole. This haulage

:02:51.:02:59.

company says cutting fuel dtty would be a start and also a review of

:03:00.:03:05.

business rates. To give somd tax breaks on business rates wotld be

:03:06.:03:13.

very helpful as a start for people in Hull. We have got the budget

:03:14.:03:18.

coming up later this month so what I would like to see, first and

:03:19.:03:21.

foremost, is an agreement whth the government that we can have rail

:03:22.:03:25.

electrification all the way through to Hull. That would be numbdr one.

:03:26.:03:29.

There will be no shortage of opinions shared with Danny @lexander

:03:30.:03:33.

when he meets the business leaders in Hull later this evening.

:03:34.:03:37.

Earlier today I met with Danny Alexander during his visit to Hull.

:03:38.:03:44.

Howell needs investment, as one businessman has told us he will have

:03:45.:03:48.

do we locate a London because the rail line still is not electrified.

:03:49.:03:55.

When will it be? The coalithon government has funded the

:03:56.:04:00.

electrification up to Selby and there is now a lot of presstre on

:04:01.:04:03.

the line from Selby to Hull. That has been raised with me tod`y and I

:04:04.:04:07.

will certainly take that message back. The network rail programme is

:04:08.:04:10.

funded for the next few years will stop they have allocated thd

:04:11.:04:18.

projects they will spend it on, so it will be a question of whdther it

:04:19.:04:24.

can be funded in the next ones. I'm not sure it can be done in time for

:04:25.:04:27.

city of culture. Network rahl would have do work that out. So that is

:04:28.:04:32.

not something you can sign tp yourself? I cannot say, you must

:04:33.:04:38.

fund this other project. We have heard from a businessman who needs

:04:39.:04:42.

help with business rates. Wd have got so many shops boarded up in this

:04:43.:04:48.

city. Why not make this a special case for the city to help otr

:04:49.:04:53.

economy grow? Can you do th`t? No one has so far mentioned business

:04:54.:04:56.

rates to me so I will happily take your representations. There is a

:04:57.:05:02.

nationwide is this rates system and what we have done for this xear and

:05:03.:05:06.

next year is put in place additional discounts for small businesses. We

:05:07.:05:10.

have put in place a cap on the increases are business rates because

:05:11.:05:13.

we recognise that business rates are a big rush for businesses hdre and

:05:14.:05:18.

around the country. Siemens are looking to invest ?200 millhon in

:05:19.:05:26.

Hull at the green part `` green port but they need a commitment from the

:05:27.:05:28.

government going beyond 2020 and lots of jobs rest on this. Will that

:05:29.:05:35.

commitment begins? It is a hugely important project for Hull `nd one

:05:36.:05:38.

which we continue to discuss with the company. We have set out the

:05:39.:05:43.

framework for investment in offshore wind especially. I announced it in

:05:44.:05:48.

December and we put in placd the final pieces. I am working with my

:05:49.:05:52.

colleague Ed Davey in the energy Department to make sure all final

:05:53.:05:54.

decisions are taken as quickly as possible. I need to put in place the

:05:55.:06:02.

correct environment for this set that and for Siemens to invdst about

:06:03.:06:05.

is what I am working very h`rd to do because I know how important it is,

:06:06.:06:09.

not just for Hull, but for the whole of the United Kingdom. How will this

:06:10.:06:19.

city of culture `` Hull is city of culture for 2017. Would you agree it

:06:20.:06:22.

was a better choice than rival Dundee? I think it was a fantastic

:06:23.:06:28.

choice. It has been exciting to hear about some of the plans. How the

:06:29.:06:32.

digital sector will contribtte to that. These are enormously hmportant

:06:33.:06:38.

for the city but for the whole of the UK as well, so we needed to be a

:06:39.:06:44.

success. That was the correct answer and we will not play it in Dundee

:06:45.:06:50.

estimation mark ``! We'd love to hear your thoughts on this story.

:06:51.:06:53.

What do you think the Government should do to boost Hull's economy?

:06:54.:06:57.

Is electrifying the rail line the priority?

:06:58.:07:14.

In a moment: The rugby leagte captain from Hull leading hhs team

:07:15.:07:20.

to victory in the capital. Hundreds of people in northdrn

:07:21.:07:27.

Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire are dying prematurely every year because

:07:28.:07:33.

of poor air quality. In North Lincolnshire alone, that figure is

:07:34.:07:37.

almost 200. The Yorkshire and Humber region is one of 16 areas across the

:07:38.:07:40.

country which exceeds limits set by the European Union as our hdalth

:07:41.:07:43.

correspondent, Vicky Johnson reports.

:07:44.:07:49.

The great choking smog of the 1 50s almost brought London to a

:07:50.:07:52.

standstill and contributed to the deaths of almost 4000 peopld. It led

:07:53.:08:00.

to the clean air act if 1956. While air quality has certainly ilproved,

:08:01.:08:04.

some patients attending this cough clinic run by Hull University say

:08:05.:08:06.

their condition is affected by certain pollutants. I noticd with my

:08:07.:08:17.

asthma that sometimes I cough more if I am not running running along

:08:18.:08:22.

the road. Last month, a schdme to build new homes close to

:08:23.:08:25.

Scunthorpe's steelworks was turned down because of concerns about

:08:26.:08:27.

pollution, particularly levdls of PM10s ` fine dust particles which

:08:28.:08:37.

can get lodged in the lungs. We do have about 179 deaths a year as a

:08:38.:08:41.

result of a pollution, which is really more than we would w`nt, so

:08:42.:08:46.

our aim is to get those down. You need to set that in the context of

:08:47.:08:50.

all the premature death that we have in North Lincolnshire, which we want

:08:51.:08:52.

to get down anyway. There are eight of these air

:08:53.:08:56.

monitoring stations across North Lincolnshire and they show `n

:08:57.:09:00.

improving picture. A spokeslan for Tartars still says they are

:09:01.:09:04.

committed to reducing emisshons from the steelworks here and say recent

:09:05.:09:09.

improvements to the air quality have been because of investments they

:09:10.:09:15.

made. They added the relationship between the steelworks and the

:09:16.:09:18.

surrounding area is important and it is only right what they do `` that

:09:19.:09:24.

they reduce the impact on their neighbours. But the EU isn't happy

:09:25.:09:27.

with the pace of improvements and is now threatening legal action. Legal

:09:28.:09:33.

limits are being breached across the UK and across Yorkshire and the

:09:34.:09:37.

deadline was 2010. The government says they will not achieve limits

:09:38.:09:42.

until 2020, so the improvemdnts are not being made quickly enough.

:09:43.:09:44.

Campaigners claim lives will continue to be put at risk tntil the

:09:45.:09:46.

government cleans up its act and forces reductions in traffic and

:09:47.:09:55.

industrial emissions. An armed robber who killed his

:09:56.:09:58.

accomplice while fleeing police in Hull has been told to expect a long

:09:59.:10:02.

jail sentence. Neville Kitt pleaded guilty to killing Matthew Httchinson

:10:03.:10:05.

by dangerous driving and to the robbery of a newsagents last

:10:06.:10:09.

October. He also pleaded not guilty to possession of a weapon, `n

:10:10.:10:12.

aggravated burglary, theft `nd possession of a CS gas canister The

:10:13.:10:17.

pair were being pursued by police when their motorbike crashed into a

:10:18.:10:20.

car. A coroner says a Lincolnshire man

:10:21.:10:24.

who had surgery at Lincoln County Hospital died in part because

:10:25.:10:27.

adequate steps were not takdn to protect him from the risks of the

:10:28.:10:33.

operation. `` because inadepuate step where taken. Ray Law, who was

:10:34.:10:38.

60, died in 2010 after a prostate operation. The trust that rtns the

:10:39.:10:42.

hospital says it's made significant improvements in all areas of patient

:10:43.:10:46.

safety in the past four years. Ray's family are now considering further

:10:47.:10:54.

action. Relieved it is all over We can settle down. Like my solicitor

:10:55.:11:01.

said, we can sort things through and see what we want to do, whether we

:11:02.:11:06.

want to go forward. Underwater search teams are

:11:07.:11:09.

continuing to look for an Alerican tourist who's gone missing hn

:11:10.:11:11.

Lincolnshire. Volunteers from neighbouring counties have joined

:11:12.:11:14.

the search for 52`year`old Denise Gray. She hasn't been seen since

:11:15.:11:19.

taking a walk on Monday aftdrnoon in the village of Revesby near

:11:20.:11:24.

Horncastle. Our reporter Phhlip Norton has spent the day in Revesby

:11:25.:11:28.

and joins me now. What have the police said today? How extension has

:11:29.:11:37.

the search been? This pub h`s been a focal point for the search `nd the

:11:38.:11:42.

coordination of the voluntedr search and rescue teams from across the

:11:43.:11:47.

East Midlands. From as far `field as Cambridgeshire and Leicestershire,

:11:48.:11:50.

they have been coming and going all day. Searching the fields and the

:11:51.:11:55.

woodland that's around this area, a very isolated area, with lots of

:11:56.:11:59.

agricultural land to search as they look for Denise Gray. There is

:12:00.:12:05.

obviously concern as well bdcause of the extremely cold nights that have

:12:06.:12:09.

set in over the past few daxs. We have got a large team today working.

:12:10.:12:15.

About 20 people. We have got teams from different other countids ``

:12:16.:12:20.

different parts of other cotnties as well. Nottinghamshire,

:12:21.:12:22.

Leicestershire and Cambridgdshire two. What have the police s`id

:12:23.:12:32.

today? They remain extremelx concerned about Denise Gray's

:12:33.:12:37.

whereabouts. They have been diving in lakes for the last coupld of

:12:38.:12:44.

days. They are unsure as to why she has gone missing. She was l`st seen

:12:45.:12:50.

as she left her friend's hotse, staying on a terrorist Beazdr in the

:12:51.:12:55.

country. She was last seen wearing a red waist length jacket and brown

:12:56.:13:01.

trousers. They asked people to keep their eyes open for her. We are

:13:02.:13:06.

appealing for anyone who max have seen hazards Monday when shd was

:13:07.:13:10.

reported missing, any sighthngs at all, we will follow those up. Also

:13:11.:13:15.

for the people that live with in the area, if you can check out

:13:16.:13:19.

buildings, gardens, land th`t you own, it helps us cover that extra

:13:20.:13:25.

bit more area. Also today, candles have then lit at the nearby church.

:13:26.:13:31.

I spoke to one resident and he said that he did not know her, that

:13:32.:13:37.

villages did not know her, but they are lighting the candles to show her

:13:38.:13:40.

and the search teams looking for her that they are in their thoughts

:13:41.:13:48.

Thank you very much. Thank you for watching tonight.

:13:49.:13:53.

Still ahead tonight: The hotse in Hull where movie mogul J Arthur Rank

:13:54.:13:57.

was born is given a new lease of life. I have come as grandm` Wolf. I

:13:58.:14:09.

am widowed 20. I am no cure. Bringing books to life ` World Book

:14:10.:14:12.

Day is celebrated in schools across our area. Tonight's photogr`ph is of

:14:13.:14:22.

ducks in the Park in Grimsbx. Another picture at the same time

:14:23.:14:33.

tomorrow. We will talk about world book Day in a mint. Gerald says can

:14:34.:14:41.

Paul recommend any good book that have been in the bargain bucket for

:14:42.:14:52.

the last few years? No, I c`nnot. I saw that tweet as well wherd you put

:14:53.:15:02.

accurate forecast' is. Very good! It is an improving trend, cert`inly

:15:03.:15:08.

tomorrow afternoon, when we will see brightening skies with sunshine

:15:09.:15:13.

Outbreaks of rain in the morning. This front bringing the rain in the

:15:14.:15:16.

morning and behind that, prdssure will build and we should sed a

:15:17.:15:20.

fairly prolonged spell of sdttled, sunny weather. Next week looking

:15:21.:15:26.

very nice. In the short terl, a lot of cloud around, some of it big

:15:27.:15:32.

enough to produce rain in places. Around this evening, in fact,

:15:33.:15:36.

especially across Lincolnshhre. That will cross into the North Sda and

:15:37.:15:40.

the night should be mostly dry. Later on, we will see threats of

:15:41.:15:45.

patchy rain, especially into central and northern parts of Lincolnshire

:15:46.:15:51.

and East Yorkshire by dawn. A mild night with temperatures of nine

:15:52.:15:58.

Celsius. The sun will rise hn the morning at about 6:36am. Next I

:15:59.:16:04.

water times displayed: Tomorrow morning, cloudy, windy and lild

:16:05.:16:11.

with showers sinking eastwards through the morning. The afternoon

:16:12.:16:16.

looks really nice, dry with good spells of sunshine coming through.

:16:17.:16:23.

Let's look at the top afternoon temperatures `` highs across East

:16:24.:16:26.

Yorkshire of ten or 11 degrdes, a good start around the wash with 12

:16:27.:16:35.

or 13 Celsius. The weekend looks dry, with variable amounts of

:16:36.:16:39.

cloud, but some sunny breaks. Next week, frost and patchy fog by night,

:16:40.:16:48.

but by day some pleasant sunshine. Pauline Fish says, after watching

:16:49.:16:54.

the weather forecast Wednesday night, I wanted to paint my

:16:55.:17:01.

summerhouse but it is raining. What does he have to say? I forecast

:17:02.:17:08.

patchy rain. She needs to gdt her is a syringe!

:17:09.:17:13.

It's a sport which has its roots and heritage in the North but today two

:17:14.:17:16.

rugby league players, born hn the same Hull hospital, have led out

:17:17.:17:19.

their teams for the annual game between Oxford and Cambridgd

:17:20.:17:22.

Universities. Jack Baker of Oxford and Cambridge skipper James Tennison

:17:23.:17:25.

were playing their last gamd before graduating. The match was played in

:17:26.:17:30.

the heart of London and our sports reporter Simon Clark was thdre.

:17:31.:17:40.

There are calls for more train services through a station hn

:17:41.:17:44.

Lincolnshire ` that's been the varsity game is played between

:17:45.:17:58.

Oxford and Cambridge. With Cambridge captained by a man from near Hull,

:17:59.:18:08.

and then another player frol close by, it is quite something. We are

:18:09.:18:17.

looking for a third win in ` row for Oxford today. It is a privilege I

:18:18.:18:22.

have really, really enjoyed this year. We have had a fantasthc season

:18:23.:18:28.

and it has been a privilege to lead the boys. Both boys enjoyed family

:18:29.:18:38.

supports as they carried on. It is brilliant to think that in the

:18:39.:18:42.

centre of the square mile wd will see a rugby match today. He has got

:18:43.:18:48.

me a press pass so I am havhng to take photos. Rather than relaxing,

:18:49.:18:52.

it is like doing a wedding. Early on, Oxford moved to a very

:18:53.:19:00.

commanding lead. The prize was handed out by another son of Hull.

:19:01.:19:08.

We played pretty well around the fringes and that is why the

:19:09.:19:11.

scoreline is as it is. Feel really happy. We will take it home,

:19:12.:19:16.

rebuilt, and hopefully give it to Oxford next year. So, it is victory

:19:17.:19:25.

for Jack and Oxford. Commisdrations to James and Cambridge, but for both

:19:26.:19:29.

of them, a fantastic memory to take with them long after they h`ve

:19:30.:19:34.

graduated. We were talking about trains at the

:19:35.:19:37.

start of the programme and there are calls for more train servicds

:19:38.:19:43.

through a station in Lincolnshire. Gainsborough Central Station is only

:19:44.:19:46.

open on Sunday at the moment but a plan has been drawn up to gdt more

:19:47.:19:53.

trains running through the town A housing development for adults

:19:54.:19:55.

with learning and physical disabilities should be copidd in

:19:56.:19:58.

other parts of the country ` that's according to health experts in North

:19:59.:20:01.

East Lincolnshire The 2.2 mhllion pound home in Grimsby has opened

:20:02.:20:05.

today It can house 16 peopld who have access to care when thdy need

:20:06.:20:09.

it. People living there say it gives them independence. Sometimes when I

:20:10.:20:18.

am doing my washing of pop `nd making myself a cup of tea, I am

:20:19.:20:25.

exactly the same as everybody else, being independent. A childrdn's

:20:26.:20:34.

reading group created by thd country music singer, Dolly Parton, has been

:20:35.:20:37.

expanded to North East Lincolnshire. The Imagination Library givds out a

:20:38.:20:41.

free book to each child every month. The Little Stars Day Nurserx in

:20:42.:20:44.

Grimsby will be the first to benefit from the programme in the area. It's

:20:45.:20:47.

already running in North Lincolnshire. They get a frde book

:20:48.:20:50.

posted to them, to their hole address, to them, every month for

:20:51.:20:56.

five years. That is 60 books. When you think that 19% of children have

:20:57.:21:04.

never act Julie received a book as a guest `` as a gift, what a lovely

:21:05.:21:15.

thing that is. Thanks to evdryone who got in touch over comments from

:21:16.:21:19.

the Independent MEP and Patron of the Drivers' Union Godfrey Bloom,

:21:20.:21:22.

who claims speed cameras don't work. He was speaking on the programme

:21:23.:21:25.

last night when it was reve`led in the past four years, a millhon

:21:26.:21:29.

pounds has been spent fixing cameras that have been vandalised. H don't

:21:30.:21:31.

think they work and I think they take money away from genuind road

:21:32.:21:34.

safety problems and cameras do not actually work. You slow down, maybe

:21:35.:21:38.

you even hit the brake irrationally and someone drives into the back of

:21:39.:21:44.

you. There has been a big rdsponse on this story. Thank you for all the

:21:45.:21:46.

messages. Thank you for those. He was a giant

:22:28.:22:32.

unknowns to worldwide superstars. Now the home in Hull in which J

:22:33.:22:36.

Arthur Rank was born is being renovated having been left to years

:22:37.:22:45.

of decay. Amanda White reports. The iconic gong, the signattre of a

:22:46.:22:48.

Hull lad whose career in films funded cinema classics like the Red

:22:49.:22:57.

Shoes. J Arthur Rank was born on Hull's Holderness Road. The fact his
