. The headlines tonight: The woman in charge of

:00:00.:00:11.

Lincolnshire's ambulance service says response times are still not

:00:12.:00:17.

good enough. As surety concerns and I would want to reassure people that

:00:18.:00:22.

every focus is going in to improve those response times. `` I share the

:00:23.:00:24.

concerns. Anger at plans to close the only

:00:25.:00:28.

public toilets in Grimsby. They should ask people what they want,

:00:29.:00:33.

not what they wanted to do themselves. They never ask the

:00:34.:00:36.

people. Also on tonight's programme: Three years since the death of Amy

:00:37.:00:39.

Winehouse, her former mother`in`law offers help to the parents of drug

:00:40.:00:41.

addicts. And the Lincolnshire skier now on

:00:42.:00:45.

the verge of a third medal at the Winter Paralympics.

:00:46.:00:52.

The Internet craze that is sweeping the Christian world. `` the

:00:53.:00:58.

equestrian world. More sunshine to come tomorrow but

:00:59.:00:59.

there will be frost. Good evening.

:01:00.:01:10.

Getting it right on ambulance response times in Lincolnshire

:01:11.:01:13.

remains our top priority, that's the message from the woman who runs the

:01:14.:01:16.

service. Chief executive Sue Noyes insists patients are seeing

:01:17.:01:20.

improvements. The East Midlands Ambulance Service has been fined in

:01:21.:01:23.

each of the past three years for missing its targets and a planned

:01:24.:01:27.

reorganisation has been put on hold until that improves. Our health

:01:28.:01:32.

correspondent, Vicky Johnson, has today met senior managers from the

:01:33.:01:36.

Trust to find out what the future holds for patients.

:01:37.:01:44.

Peter, it's worth remembering the plans to reorganise the East

:01:45.:01:47.

Midlands Ambulance date back to 2012 and were the Trust's response to its

:01:48.:01:50.

consistently poor performance. But the Being the Best project meant

:01:51.:01:53.

plans were approved to close ten ambulance stations across

:01:54.:01:55.

Lincolnshire. Campaigners have been strongly opposed, including Guy

:01:56.:01:57.

Grainger, who's raised concerns about cover in Market Rasen. We

:01:58.:02:08.

should be having two ambulances in the area on stand`by at all times.

:02:09.:02:12.

Rather than bringing those ambulances in over at least 15 miles

:02:13.:02:15.

to have to respond to those incidents. What it means is that we

:02:16.:02:20.

will be looking at a redesign of that strategy. Where appropriate,

:02:21.:02:27.

there will not be station closures. Streamlining the estate strategy in

:02:28.:02:29.

accordance with those comments. Last year, EMAS were fined ?3.5

:02:30.:02:32.

million after failing to meet response times. Of ten ambulance

:02:33.:02:35.

trusts in England, EMAS was one of only two to miss targets. The

:02:36.:02:39.

service is supposed to get an ambulance to 95% of all

:02:40.:02:41.

life`threatening emergencies within 19 minutes, but EMAS missed this

:02:42.:02:53.

target by more than 3%. We are just below on the red one. But we have

:02:54.:02:59.

seen some significant improvement on the A19 on the convenient target to

:03:00.:03:06.

just below the 95%. That is quite some improvement for Lincolnshire.

:03:07.:03:08.

We have not seen that for some time. So after a difficult few years,

:03:09.:03:12.

what's it like for the crews? They are still concerned about staff

:03:13.:03:19.

rotas and also the closure plans. My members have been through a lot in

:03:20.:03:23.

the last 12 months, 18 months, not just the response times but we have

:03:24.:03:30.

had the tobacco of the programme, proposed changes to sick leave, meal

:03:31.:03:36.

breaks and the one thing that really concerns members is the change to

:03:37.:03:38.

rotors and how that will affect the service delivery.

:03:39.:03:41.

The unions will now meet with the new management tomorrow for more

:03:42.:03:44.

discussions. `` the change to the working schedules.

:03:45.:03:49.

In a moment: The Minister for Fisheries visits

:03:50.:03:52.

Grimsby to discuss the industry's future.

:03:53.:03:56.

The only council`run public toilets in Grimsby are facing closure, even

:03:57.:04:00.

though ?1 million was recently spent upgrading them. North East

:04:01.:04:06.

Lincolnshire Council argues it needs to save more than ?70 million from

:04:07.:04:09.

its budget and they won't close until an alternative has been found.

:04:10.:04:14.

But campaigners say there has been no consultation and a petition has

:04:15.:04:18.

been started. Phillip Norton reports.

:04:19.:04:22.

Closed within weeks, the signs at Grimsby's last remaining public

:04:23.:04:26.

toilets put up yesterday. It's a move that's come as a surprise for

:04:27.:04:34.

users... And their cleaner. Two people came and said, "I am putting

:04:35.:04:39.

some signs up because they are closing." I have been told they are

:04:40.:04:43.

closing and I looked at the sign and it said the 24th of March. It is

:04:44.:04:47.

diabolical. They gave me two weeks close is that I have not got a job

:04:48.:04:49.

any more. Those who use the toilets are angry

:04:50.:04:54.

and have started a petition. I don't see why they want to close them. A

:04:55.:04:57.

lot of our customers are wondering why. There are no toilets around

:04:58.:05:02.

you. I used it when I do my shopping. They should ask people

:05:03.:05:05.

what they want, not what they want to do themselves. They never ask the

:05:06.:05:08.

people nowadays. The Government says there should be

:05:09.:05:11.

proper consultation with the public over the closure of toilets. But

:05:12.:05:15.

even the ward councillor says he's been kept in the dark. To close

:05:16.:05:20.

toilets which were only renovated a few years back, I find it bizarre.

:05:21.:05:24.

Now it will have to be signed off by the portfolio. One councillor who

:05:25.:05:29.

will sign it off... That is not right for democracy. It will not

:05:30.:05:33.

come to us councillors until the next full council meeting. That is

:05:34.:05:38.

absolutely appalling. Just four years ago, the council spent ?1

:05:39.:05:43.

million upgrading toilets across the borough. The closure of these

:05:44.:05:47.

facilities and those of the market Hall will leave Grimsby town centre

:05:48.:05:50.

without any public conveniences. Last night, the leader of North East

:05:51.:05:53.

Lincolnshire Council said the closures were due to underuse and

:05:54.:05:56.

budget cuts and that the public should use privately run facilities

:05:57.:05:59.

at Freeman Street market and Freshney Place shopping centre. The

:06:00.:06:04.

thing is that we have got alternative provision in the market.

:06:05.:06:12.

We have spoken to the alternative provider and said, " look, it seems

:06:13.:06:15.

ridiculous having to toilets within 200 yards of each other. " We might

:06:16.:06:20.

as well combine services together and make it work for both parties.

:06:21.:06:26.

Are the nearby? Yes, they are in the market. There are public toilets.

:06:27.:06:29.

But both the market and Freshney Place have told me today there's no

:06:30.:06:32.

agreement for the use of what it says are customer toilets. The

:06:33.:06:35.

shopping centre saying it was unaware of the closure. Earlier, the

:06:36.:06:38.

council did something of a u`turn. It now says Garibaldi Street will

:06:39.:06:41.

stay open until alternatives are found. Campaigners say they'll fight

:06:42.:06:44.

to keep them. Phillip Norton, BBC Look North, Grimsby.

:06:45.:06:49.

Earlier, I asked the council leader Chris Shaw if council tax payers

:06:50.:06:53.

deserve and want public toilets. Well, of course. That's why we're

:06:54.:06:57.

not actually closing them. We are doing three re`provisioned toilets.

:06:58.:07:01.

We've got this idea that the toilet is going to go. It's just going to

:07:02.:07:05.

be supplied by another set of people in a different place. Yesterday, you

:07:06.:07:09.

posted a notice on the toilet saying, " Closed on the 24th of

:07:10.:07:14.

March. " Today, you are saying they will stay open for now. Why the

:07:15.:07:18.

U`turn? It's not a U`turn. The ones on Garibaldi Street, it was the

:07:19.:07:21.

contracter put the wrong sign up on the wrong toilets. Once we get the

:07:22.:07:25.

re`provisions in place on the other side... On Garibaldi Street, it's on

:07:26.:07:29.

the other side of the road, the new toilets, then we will be closing the

:07:30.:07:33.

old ones. So you are blaming the contracters, not the fact that you

:07:34.:07:36.

had a change of mind because you're worried about bad publicity today?

:07:37.:07:39.

No, Peter. They were always supposed to put a toilet on the other side of

:07:40.:07:43.

the road. That's what we're doing. We are working with partners to do

:07:44.:07:47.

that. It's just a case of, you know, the sign was put up at the

:07:48.:07:51.

wrong place so people jumped to conclusions. The left hand does not

:07:52.:07:55.

know what the right hand is doing. I mean, Freshney Place did not even

:07:56.:07:58.

know that the toilets were closing down. You've not even spoken to

:07:59.:08:01.

them. Well, freshly place do know, Peter. That's the thing, they do

:08:02.:08:04.

know. We've had a lot of consultation with them to do what we

:08:05.:08:08.

are doing. It's the Freeman Street market where we're still negotiating

:08:09.:08:11.

with them to get the right facilities but the thing is, at the

:08:12.:08:15.

end of the day, I've got to save this authority 76 million. My choice

:08:16.:08:19.

is to keep all of these toilets open and close the children's home or ask

:08:20.:08:23.

people to walk 100 yards and use an alternative toilet. Bearing in mind,

:08:24.:08:26.

Peter, in Grimsby town centre, in July there is a brand`new set of

:08:27.:08:29.

toilets opening in our brand`new bus station. So you... It is hardly that

:08:30.:08:33.

people will not have a choice. You are trying to save money by getting

:08:34.:08:37.

people to use public toilets in the shopping centre so you can save on

:08:38.:08:41.

your budget. That's the story, the bottom line? Well, the bottom line

:08:42.:08:44.

is us being a more efficient council. That is what we have been

:08:45.:08:48.

told we have to be by the Government. The ratepayers don't

:08:49.:08:51.

want to pay an awful lot more and it is by working in partnership with

:08:52.:08:55.

people that we can get these things done. What you are doing is trying

:08:56.:08:58.

to push the customers into toilets in a public area and save money by

:08:59.:09:02.

closing down public toilets. That is what you are trying to do. Why don't

:09:03.:09:06.

you just admit it? No, Peter, what we are doing is making better use of

:09:07.:09:10.

council tax payers' money by working with... No, what you are doing... To

:09:11.:09:14.

give them toilets. What you're doing is closing public toilets to save

:09:15.:09:17.

money. Why don't you just admit it? Because we are not doing that. What

:09:18.:09:21.

we are actually doing is saving money by working with others to

:09:22.:09:24.

supply better toilets. So if you want public toilets in your area,

:09:25.:09:28.

you're not going to get them. It is tough really, isn't it? We've got

:09:29.:09:31.

ten public toilets in North East Lincolnshire. We are talking about a

:09:32.:09:34.

re`provisioning of three. Hardly doing away with public toilets! And

:09:35.:09:37.

that will save the ratepayers a considerable sum of money that we

:09:38.:09:40.

can put into street cleaning and into things like children's homes.

:09:41.:09:44.

And I think that is better value for money. We'll leave it there. Very

:09:45.:09:47.

good to talk to you tonight. Thank you very much indeed. Thank you,

:09:48.:09:52.

Peter. Let us know what you think of this

:09:53.:10:00.

story. Samantha says, libraries, toilets, what next question marks

:10:01.:10:03.

the council should get their act together. This story is from

:10:04.:10:12.

Grimsby. The council needs to save ?70 million. Is closing the public

:10:13.:10:16.

toilets a good way to save the money? How vital is the service? We

:10:17.:10:22.

will have some boards before we finish. `` thoughts.

:10:23.:10:34.

I look forward to hearing from you. A 33`year`old man has been released

:10:35.:10:40.

on bail following a dog attack in Lincoln. Armed Police were called to

:10:41.:10:46.

a quarry in the east of the city on Sunday night, where a 22`year`old

:10:47.:10:48.

woman suffered what have been described as life changing injuries

:10:49.:10:52.

to her face and head. She is now in stable condition after undergoing

:10:53.:10:54.

surgery. Thanks to everyone who got in touch

:10:55.:10:58.

on this story after last night's programme. Lesley says, "Every dog

:10:59.:11:01.

regardless of breed should be muzzled in public.

:11:02.:11:31.

Thank you very much indeed for all of those.

:11:32.:11:41.

The funeral of a woman who led the campaign to scrap tolls for hospital

:11:42.:11:49.

patients was held today. She had lobbied MPs and lead petitions

:11:50.:11:51.

urging for them to be of dollars `` abolished. It was attended by family

:11:52.:11:59.

and friends. Planes from a Lincolnshire air base

:12:00.:12:02.

are making flights over eastern Europe as concerns about the future

:12:03.:12:08.

of the Ukraine continue. They are monitoring the situation of Poland

:12:09.:12:11.

and Romania. They will be joined by NATO colleagues from Germany.

:12:12.:12:16.

The former mother`in`law of the singer Amy Winehouse has told BBC

:12:17.:12:20.

Look North that parents need to take responsibility if their children use

:12:21.:12:23.

drugs. Georgette Civil lives in Lincolnshire and says she spent

:12:24.:12:26.

years in denial about her son Blake's addiction. She now has

:12:27.:12:29.

little contact with him but has written a book to try and help other

:12:30.:12:37.

parents. Gemma Dawson reports. I look at him and he does not fit that

:12:38.:12:40.

stereotype image people have of addicts. Here, he is my boy.

:12:41.:12:44.

Georgette's son, Blake, was half of one of the most famous couple's in

:12:45.:12:47.

the country. Married to Amy Winehouse, the pair's every move was

:12:48.:12:51.

followed by the press. But despite reports of drug taking, Georgette

:12:52.:12:59.

told me she spent years in denial. That is probably the hardest thing

:13:00.:13:03.

for any mother to come to terms with, to say, "my son is a drug

:13:04.:13:11.

addict. " It is the hardest words a mother will ever have to say. And it

:13:12.:13:16.

is the most destructive denial because as long as you are in

:13:17.:13:20.

denial, what you're doing is you are in enabling your child. You are

:13:21.:13:24.

enabling them to continue having a dependency.

:13:25.:13:25.

At home in Lincolnshire, Georgette's written a book sharing her

:13:26.:13:28.

experiences. After reflecting on the last few years, she now believes

:13:29.:13:31.

parents need to take some responsibility if their children use

:13:32.:13:40.

drugs. I did things, not with an intention to hurt him but I made

:13:41.:13:45.

mistakes. I was young and I made mistakes. We all say, " if I could

:13:46.:13:50.

have my chance again with the knowledge I have got today, I would

:13:51.:13:54.

do things so very differently." But yes, I take full responsibility that

:13:55.:13:59.

I contributed up to three or four runs up the ladder to his rejection

:14:00.:14:05.

`` addiction. Georgette's now estranged from her eldest son but

:14:06.:14:08.

hopes one day, they'll re`build their relationship.

:14:09.:14:14.

Let's hope so. Thank you for your company.

:14:15.:14:15.

Still ahead tonight: We talk to the Lincolnshire skier on

:14:16.:14:19.

the verge of her third medal at the Winter Paralympics in Sochi.

:14:20.:14:22.

And celebrating their horses, the internet craze that's sweeping the

:14:23.:14:23.

equestrian world. Pictures coming in tonight. Thank

:14:24.:14:40.

stunning. stunning.

:14:41.:14:44.

How are you? How are

:14:45.:14:54.

What a lovely day it is. Bethany says she requests peter to be a

:14:55.:14:57.

judge in her lingerie modelling competition. Are you busy that day,

:14:58.:15:01.

Peter? 's you are on your own! If you're going to get yourself into

:15:02.:15:05.

deep water, I am not joining in! Was like you should consider it. Fog and

:15:06.:15:10.

low cloud at first tomorrow. It will gradually turns sunny but some of

:15:11.:15:14.

the low cloud might be a little reluctant to clear but high pressure

:15:15.:15:18.

still in charge. The main thing is that is going to be dry and probably

:15:19.:15:21.

stay dry through the rest of this week and much of the coming weekend.

:15:22.:15:26.

A nice, fairly prolonged spell of settled weather. We are in the

:15:27.:15:30.

middle of it. The low cloud did form overnight. We had a widespread frost

:15:31.:15:35.

but it cleared fairly readily and this afternoon has been beautiful.

:15:36.:15:39.

11 Celsius! It is warm in the sunshine but still quite chilly in

:15:40.:15:42.

the shade and along the coast, with a gentle breeze. Tonight, I think we

:15:43.:15:48.

will have a widespread ground frost, even perhaps frost in the air in

:15:49.:15:56.

some thoughts `` sunspots. There will be mist, fog and low cloud in

:15:57.:16:00.

some places. Here is a look at the temperatures. In the countryside, it

:16:01.:16:04.

will be a fair amount lower than those temperatures are suggesting.

:16:05.:16:07.

The sun will rise in the morning at 6:24am.

:16:08.:16:14.

A lot of low cloud and fog first thing in the morning. As I say, some

:16:15.:16:19.

of it may be quite reluctant to clear. A slow process, some of that

:16:20.:16:23.

lingering into tomorrow afternoon but the general trend will be for it

:16:24.:16:28.

to break up, blue skies to become established and most of us tomorrow

:16:29.:16:31.

afternoon should enjoy plenty of sunshine. Just a hint of a little

:16:32.:16:35.

bit of sea fog not far from that coastline. The coast itself will be

:16:36.:16:38.

quite cool, with a gentle Orange Order breeze. Inland, Tim Celsius in

:16:39.:16:45.

Hull. 12 Celsius in the afternoon sunshine. `` 10 Celsius. `` a gentle

:16:46.:16:53.

onshore breeze. The weekend, that is forecast.

:16:54.:16:58.

And a mild has been sent, seeing the shirt and tie that Paul often wears,

:16:59.:17:04.

I know now why Look North is not what gas in HD! It would be more

:17:05.:17:07.

than the viewer could cope with. I would have to iron them then!

:17:08.:17:16.

When HD starts, I am going! Most of the fish and seafood that we

:17:17.:17:19.

eight is processed in Grimsby, an estimated 70% of the UK total. Today

:17:20.:17:22.

the government's Fisheries Minister visited the town to hear about the

:17:23.:17:25.

challenges that are facing the industry. George Eustiss offered his

:17:26.:17:29.

support to a campaign to encourage more children to eight fish and

:17:30.:17:38.

seafood. `` to eat fish and seafood. Crispin Rolfe reports.

:17:39.:17:41.

Winning ministerial approval. This pack's designed to get primary

:17:42.:17:46.

school pupils eating seafood. George Eustice is the government's latest

:17:47.:17:49.

Fishing Minister and he's now backing the Fish is the Dish, an

:17:50.:17:52.

education pack going nationwide on Monday. The whole thing is... This

:17:53.:17:59.

is his first trip to Grimsby. We want to encourage children to get

:18:00.:18:03.

used to eating is an early age but also preparing and so they are not

:18:04.:18:06.

just buying fish fingers. The Government is also looking at how we

:18:07.:18:09.

can promote careers in the food industry. We have got a government

:18:10.:18:13.

recommendation that you should be eating fish twice a week. One being

:18:14.:18:18.

oily fish and the other whitefish. We do not come anywhere near that in

:18:19.:18:22.

the UK. That is for health, not for pushing up the profits of seafood

:18:23.:18:25.

companies. It is for health. But will primary school pupils, even in

:18:26.:18:28.

Grimsby, be persuaded of seafood's succulence? They might give it a try

:18:29.:18:36.

but I don't think they would like it. I think it is a good idea and

:18:37.:18:40.

good for the children also. It is healthy. She lost this fingers, lost

:18:41.:18:43.

fish and chips and it is the way forward, is it not?

:18:44.:18:50.

Grimsby's industry hope so as earlier at the minister visited its

:18:51.:18:53.

fish market amid hopes that George Eustice can help the town rediscover

:18:54.:18:57.

its best years as the processing industry picks up. Whether it can be

:18:58.:19:00.

done on a huge skill, not to be done on a huge skill, not to the old days

:19:01.:19:03.

of yore when Grimsby was the Premier fishing port... But I certainly

:19:04.:19:06.

think there is scope for improvement, increase in business as

:19:07.:19:10.

well. One of the things we have to be mindful of as the history of the

:19:11.:19:13.

past. We have to build on that and look to the future. The Humber

:19:14.:19:18.

region has a great history with the fishing and deep water boards.

:19:19.:19:20.

Today, though, industry leaders in Grimsby have been looking to the

:19:21.:19:24.

future and hoping this visit will boost the town's key trade, as well

:19:25.:19:27.

as encouraging more people to eat seafood. `` deepwater fishing boats.

:19:28.:19:38.

This fingers 40! `` fish fingers 40! Lincolnshire skier Jade Etherington

:19:39.:19:40.

finished second in the Super Combined slalom event this morning,

:19:41.:19:44.

at the Winter Paralympics. It means she is virtually guaranteed another

:19:45.:19:48.

medal! Jade, who has already won two medals at the games, originally came

:19:49.:19:52.

in fourth, but moved up after two other skiers were disqualified.

:19:53.:19:55.

Earlier, I spoke to Jade and asked her how she felt after winning

:19:56.:19:58.

Silver on Saturday. Her story is amazing. As long as she finishes the

:19:59.:20:01.

course on Friday, she will win a medal.

:20:02.:20:09.

It was quite a lot to take in. For me, it was the first race, the first

:20:10.:20:13.

time I had ever raced at a Paralympic event. To come down and

:20:14.:20:17.

when that silver medal in the downhill, it was so good. It was

:20:18.:20:23.

definitely a confidence boost for me and Caroline. We have not been

:20:24.:20:26.

working that long together. It was only a third downhill together. We

:20:27.:20:29.

were both really happy with the performance and we tried to take

:20:30.:20:34.

that into the next couple of races. It was a fantastic achievement. The

:20:35.:20:39.

question that everybody has been asking me is how you do it. What do

:20:40.:20:43.

you need to be told to be able to do what you do? I spend time with

:20:44.:20:51.

Caroline all the time, on and off the hell, 24/7. In the actual cause,

:20:52.:20:56.

she will tell me when to turn, is the main thing, and when the tour

:20:57.:21:00.

bricks are. We do a lot of the communication and what they commands

:21:01.:21:05.

will be in inspection and that is when I will look at the terrain, the

:21:06.:21:10.

steepness, but we're going to land, whether there is going to be some

:21:11.:21:14.

are shared. Gosh! There's quite a lot communication. That is

:21:15.:21:18.

definitely the key to our success in skiing and also the distance. We

:21:19.:21:22.

been really close to Caroline and telling her win to go, when to wait.

:21:23.:21:27.

A chance of another medal on Friday? Hopefully! Are run today was quite

:21:28.:21:33.

good but we have not been on the slalom for a while but we are going

:21:34.:21:37.

to get up really early and, you know, try to get our energy as we

:21:38.:21:41.

are both feeling really tired from all the highs and lows that we have

:21:42.:21:45.

had. I think we are just going to try and save energy and call for the

:21:46.:21:52.

slalom and have fun. Well, you have been fantastic. Many

:21:53.:21:53.

congratulations. Good luck for the rest of the week. Lovely to chat

:21:54.:21:57.

with you. Thank you for having me. Technique care! `` take care! 's

:21:58.:22:05.

what a fantastic story and good luck to her on Friday and good evening to

:22:06.:22:08.

her family, who I think are tuned in.

Our Sports reporter Simon Clark is at Glanford Park. What are the

chances of United breaking this record?

First there was the selfie. Now it seems there's a new internet photo

:23:50.:23:53.

craze but this time it involves horses. It's taken the equestrian

:23:54.:23:56.

world by storm. Kate Sweeting can explain all.

:23:57.:24:03.

This is Barry. Barry is used to the quiet life. Hello! Unbeknownst to

:24:04.:24:10.

him, something big has happened to him recently. He has gone viral. But

:24:11.:24:15.

do not worry, it is not time to call the vet. When I say viral, I mean

:24:16.:24:21.

Internet viral, like many of his 4`legged friends. He has joined the

:24:22.:24:24.

new worldwide social media phenomenon on known as

:24:25.:24:29.

#Neighnomination. You put a post on Facebook with a picture and a bit of

:24:30.:24:35.

writing about your horse or horses of a lift in. Then you nominate

:24:36.:24:37.

somebody else and the hopefully do the same thing. Hundreds of

:24:38.:24:42.

thousands of horse owners have already posted images of their

:24:43.:24:45.

animals on social networking sites, with everything from silly sell

:24:46.:24:48.

these to nostalgic pictures from the past. `` silly pictures. Why is

:24:49.:24:56.

proving so popular? Is becoming because people absolutely adored

:24:57.:24:58.

talking about their authors. They are members of their family, as far

:24:59.:25:05.

as they are concerned. I named my son after one of my best horses.

:25:06.:25:08.

People are like that, they just love talking about them. Even a

:25:09.:25:12.

Paralympian has been getting in on the action. People are doing it at a

:25:13.:25:20.

grass roots level and so are top horse riders. It really has captured

:25:21.:25:23.

the whole of the equestrian industry. It is quite funny really!

:25:24.:25:29.

And some of the horses certainly seem to be enjoying the attention.

:25:30.:25:34.

Irony is very famous. He says he likes being famous. He has retired

:25:35.:25:39.

from top`level eventing so it is quite nice that he still can be

:25:40.:25:42.

famous in his own right, even though he is retard from being famous for

:25:43.:25:44.

competing. So there you have it. The latest

:25:45.:25:49.

social media crazed straight from the horse's mouth. Sorry, couldn't

:25:50.:25:57.

resist! Horse and hound, I read nothing

:25:58.:26:00.

else! It is 7:55pm. Let's get a recap of the national

:26:01.:26:03.

and regional headlines. Britain's best known trade union

:26:04.:26:06.

leader Bob Crow has died suddenly at the age of 52.

:26:07.:26:09.

The woman in charge of Lincolnshire's ambulance service

:26:10.:26:11.

says response times are still not good enough.

:26:12.:26:13.

Tomorrow's weather: A grey start, low cloud and fog

:26:14.:26:16.

slowly clearing. Most places brightening up with long sunny

:26:17.:26:19.

spells. Maximum temperature will be 11 Celsius.

:26:20.:26:24.

That is all from me. I will be back later on tonight. Join me then.

:26:25.:26:32.

Goodbye. Dash`mac whilst we are on the subject of toilets, Judy says

:26:33.:26:37.

that people will be urinating more on the street close. Ian says that

:26:38.:26:42.

if the council wants to save money then he can start with expenses.

:26:43.:26:47.

Another asks what happens when the market is closed. Perhaps the

:26:48.:26:50.

council should not have spent all the money on crazy paving. Another

:26:51.:26:57.

says that the council has the right idea because you have never used the

:26:58.:27:00.

toilets. David says, "have I gone daft? Surely the council should have

:27:01.:27:05.

decided to shut them before doing them up. It is absolute

:27:06.:27:09.

incompetence. Who scored "close in public toilets is a step back in

:27:10.:27:14.

time to when disease was rife." `` absolute incompetence. " Just

:27:15.:27:21.

finally, Hilary says it is often the first stop after long journey.

:27:22.:27:25.

How do they expect these poor traders and market stall holders to

:27:26.:27:30.

survive? It will put people off visiting Grimsby and I do not think

:27:31.:27:34.

I will bother anyone. Big response on the subject of toilets. It is not

:27:35.:27:40.

too late to comment. Have a nice evening.
