well. More details if you want to go on the website. That's

Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:00.:00:09.

The headlines tonight: as British soldiers return home from

:00:10.:00:11.

Afghanistan, two mothers reflect on what their sons died for. It is too

:00:12.:00:22.

early for them to pull out, but at the same time they do need closure.

:00:23.:00:31.

Why more middle`aged drinkers are ending up in hospital in

:00:32.:00:32.

Lincolnshire. This isn't necessarily a problem for

:00:33.:00:35.

young teenage binge drinkers, were actually seeing this as a problem

:00:36.:00:38.

for middle class middle`aged drinkers.

:00:39.:00:43.

Tonight the Football Associ`tion is set to reject the application to

:00:44.:00:47.

change the name of this football club from Hull city to Hull Tigers.

:00:48.:00:51.

Thousands of spectators turn out for an annual cross country racd meeting

:00:52.:00:56.

in East Yorkshire. And why Hull is being transformed

:00:57.:01:05.

into 1940s London. A gloriots weekend to come. Join me for the

:01:06.:01:08.

forecast. It's a conflict which has claimed

:01:09.:01:24.

more than four hundred Brithsh lives, including eleven frol our

:01:25.:01:27.

area. Now the mother of a Royal Marine from Immingham, killdd in

:01:28.:01:30.

Afghanistan, says the UK's decision to withdraw from the countrx is a

:01:31.:01:33.

mistake. Joan Ford insists her son would have wanted British forces to

:01:34.:01:36.

create long`term stability there. Her comments come as the UK closes

:01:37.:01:40.

all but two of its 130 bases in Helmand Province.

:01:41.:01:51.

Mathew Ford was killed in Afghanistan in 2007 while preparing

:01:52.:01:55.

an assault on a Taliban Stronghold. His mother, Joan, says he dhed doing

:01:56.:02:02.

what he believed in. But as British forces withdraw from the cotntry,

:02:03.:02:05.

Joan says Mathew would have wanted Western troops to stay to ensure

:02:06.:02:14.

long`term security there. I think it is too early for them to

:02:15.:02:19.

pull out. At the same time, they do meet closure on the time th`t they

:02:20.:02:27.

have been there. They will `lways be heroes, but I don't want it to be

:02:28.:02:36.

forgotten about. It ought to be remembered forever.

:02:37.:02:38.

More than 400 British service personnel have died in the 03 year

:02:39.:02:50.

conflict. Now, hardly anythhng is being left behind, raising the

:02:51.:02:53.

question: what will be the lasting legacy?

:02:54.:02:59.

I only wish people at home could see the changes I had seen. It would

:03:00.:03:03.

feel better about the investment and work that we have done here.

:03:04.:03:10.

For Helen, there is relief that soldiers are coming home. Hdr son

:03:11.:03:15.

was killed in Helmand while driving an escort vehicle. I do not want

:03:16.:03:22.

other families to go through what I had to go through. There will always

:03:23.:03:27.

be a tiny bit of me in Afgh`nistan. Our children are still therd. What

:03:28.:03:31.

we have lost will give the @fghani people a legacy to move for a bird.

:03:32.:03:35.

But that is up to them and they are Government.

:03:36.:03:44.

Helen wants non`combat personnel to be given more recognition for their

:03:45.:03:50.

sacrifices. They believe th`t there sons have made a difference in

:03:51.:03:56.

Afghanistan. He would have lived and died for the

:03:57.:03:59.

Marines and loved every mintte of it.

:04:00.:04:03.

Those who did not make it home are remembered. Sarah is here whth us

:04:04.:04:11.

now. Why are they are such lixed emotions from families who have

:04:12.:04:15.

loved ones? On one hand, there was relidf that

:04:16.:04:21.

troops are heading home. A huge operation, but there are no

:04:22.:04:24.

questions about what has bedn achieved since 2001. How st`ble the

:04:25.:04:31.

country is, what will happen next when western forces leave

:04:32.:04:34.

completely. Fighting contintes in many areas, but Afghan security

:04:35.:04:40.

forces are arguably stronger now and there is a sense among families that

:04:41.:04:44.

we spoke to today that the sacrifices of our soldiers lust not

:04:45.:04:48.

be in vain and Afghanistan hs a safer place thanks to their

:04:49.:04:52.

sacrifices. Thank you.

:04:53.:04:59.

We'd like your thoughts on this story. Is now the right timd to

:05:00.:05:02.

start bringing British troops home from Afghanistan? Is it "job done"

:05:03.:05:04.

as the Prime Minister has s`id? Let In a moment: remembering World War

:05:05.:05:24.

One, a memorial is rededicated to veterans from Hull.

:05:25.:05:33.

It's a problem that's usually associated with young peopld, but

:05:34.:05:37.

the latest figures show that the number of middle`aged men and women

:05:38.:05:40.

going to hospital drunk in Lincolnshire is higher than any

:05:41.:05:43.

other age group. Researchers say they're not surprised many lore

:05:44.:05:46.

41`50`year`olds are ending tp in hospital. Leanne Brown has been to

:05:47.:05:50.

meet a former alcoholic whose problems with alcohol startdd in

:05:51.:06:03.

middle age. Christopher cares for his whfe, who

:06:04.:06:07.

has Parkinson's, at their home in this town.

:06:08.:06:16.

The alcoholism really took hold of me. I used to love red wine,

:06:17.:06:21.

especially Merrill. Of course I drink beer and whiskey. But, I

:06:22.:06:29.

always thought it did not do anybody any harm.

:06:30.:06:34.

He says that the drinking ctlture is picked up from 12 years in the Army

:06:35.:06:38.

simply carried on into later life, but then got out of hand.

:06:39.:06:45.

I kept lying to my wife, shd had a good job and I would pinch loney

:06:46.:06:50.

from her just to get the drhnk. When I was supposed to be looking after

:06:51.:06:53.

our child, I passed out and he walked down the street. Our

:06:54.:06:59.

neighbours saw him and phondd the wife.

:07:00.:07:04.

The latest figures from the NHS Trust show that year after xear for

:07:05.:07:09.

the last three years, the ntmber of 41 to 50`year`olds going to hospital

:07:10.:07:14.

drunk has been higher than `ny other age group. From 2011 to 2013, 1 00

:07:15.:07:21.

meeting attended A with a drink related problem. That is 12.5% more

:07:22.:07:28.

than 31 to 40`year`olds and 18. % more than those under 21. The

:07:29.:07:37.

Institute of alcohol studies says they are not surprised by the

:07:38.:07:40.

figures. We see the middle`aged group as the

:07:41.:07:45.

one that links the most and most frequently. We see people in

:07:46.:07:49.

managerial and professional roles, drinking more and more freqtently to

:07:50.:07:53.

stop this is something we nded to look at when they raise questions

:07:54.:07:57.

about where the problem lies with alcohol in society. It is not

:07:58.:08:01.

necessarily a problem for young teenage binge drinkers, we're

:08:02.:08:05.

actually seeing this as a problem for middle`aged and middle class

:08:06.:08:10.

drinkers. Christopher has now written a book

:08:11.:08:14.

about his life experiences but he says that many people simplx do not

:08:15.:08:17.

realise they have a problem. We'd like to hear your thoughts on

:08:18.:08:20.

this story. What's your expdrience? Is older people abusing alcohol a

:08:21.:08:22.

widespread problem? A farmer is to be prosecuted by his

:08:23.:08:32.

local council for repeatedlx failing to control odours at his farm in

:08:33.:08:36.

Louth. Southfield farm has been criticised by an animal welfare

:08:37.:08:38.

group for keeping thousands of cattle in grassless pens. E`st

:08:39.:08:44.

Lindsey Council ` which is taking the court case ` says neighbours

:08:45.:08:55.

have complained more than 140 times. Hull City Council has announced the

:08:56.:08:59.

closure of one of its secondary schools. Endeavour High School only

:09:00.:09:02.

opened a decade ago but will shut next year. There are hundreds of

:09:03.:09:05.

spare places and inspectors say the school is under`performing. A report

:09:06.:09:08.

released last month recommended its closure.

:09:09.:09:11.

The new boss of HS2 says a stop on the new high`speed rail lind

:09:12.:09:14.

extending to Crewe in Cheshhre would benefit northern cities, including

:09:15.:09:16.

Hull. Sir David Higgins wants the high`speed line to reach Chdshire by

:09:17.:09:20.

2027 ` six years earlier th`n currently planned.

:09:21.:09:26.

It is a very comprehensive `nd detailed report about how wd get

:09:27.:09:29.

great connectivity and how we get the service faster to the North

:09:30.:09:32.

We'll give that the proper consideration that it deserves and I

:09:33.:09:36.

am asking HS2 and Network R`il to work on the objectives that Sir

:09:37.:09:49.

David has put in that report today. Young people are being asked how

:09:50.:09:52.

youth services should be run in North East Lincolnshire. Thd

:09:53.:09:55.

department which provides a range of advice and help, including

:09:56.:09:57.

supporting young carers and vulnerable children, is loshng

:09:58.:10:00.

almost ?1 million as its budget is cut by a quarter.

:10:01.:10:10.

We can never say never but we really keen to keep young people involved.

:10:11.:10:13.

They are an important part of the Trinity.

:10:14.:10:25.

We've had a lot of response to an investigation by BBC Look North

:10:26.:10:28.

which found that claims that a rush of Romanians and Bulgarians would

:10:29.:10:30.

come to East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire have not so far become

:10:31.:10:34.

a reality. Fears had been r`ised that an influx of new migrants would

:10:35.:10:37.

put pressure on public servhces But some companies who employ workers

:10:38.:10:40.

from overseas say they've not seen people from either country.

:10:41.:10:43.

Thanks to everyone who got hn touch. Russ said "I was born here hn the UK

:10:44.:10:47.

and am disgusted by the polhtical scaremongering about Romani` and

:10:48.:10:50.

Bulgaria. I am so sad for the farmers struggling to harvest

:10:51.:10:51.

crops." Thank you for those comments.

142 names ` the men of Sharp Street who served in the First World War.

:11:26.:11:32.

And as we enter the centenary for the start of the war, what better

:11:33.:11:58.

time to rededicate this memorial? MUSIC PLAYS

:11:59.:12:04.

Along with St Albans, Hull had the most of these street shrines, with

:12:05.:12:06.

216 in total. But only five remain.

:12:07.:12:16.

There are very few left. Sole were destroyed in the Blitz, somd are

:12:17.:12:21.

thrown away, and many simplx got to the point of disrepair. It has been

:12:22.:12:26.

renovated by local contributions, which is great. I can see it from my

:12:27.:12:32.

bedroom window. This man has lived here for 54

yours. They decided to do something about it. It is fantastic and good

:12:44.:12:53.

to see it back. A return today has been welcomed by

:12:54.:12:59.

the community. Those men from the streets took part

:13:00.:13:05.

in something which changed the world.

:13:06.:13:09.

There are now only five of these street shrines left today. From here

:13:10.:13:21.

on, where more than a hundrdd men went to war, they were from all

:13:22.:13:30.

walks of life. They didn't `ll die, but many of them did. A hugd human

:13:31.:13:37.

cost on a small community. This is a particular, personal

:13:38.:13:41.

reference within Hull. Therd were many more of these 100 years ago and

:13:42.:13:46.

there are not many still in existence. It is great that this one

:13:47.:13:51.

is still here. People do get passionate about this because it

:13:52.:13:56.

reminds us of what previous generations did for us.

:13:57.:13:59.

Many of the men on this roll of honour may be ultimate sacrhfice for

:14:00.:14:03.

their country. Now, the namds of these words heroes who have returned

weekend. Not forecast by US Commissioner

:15:01.:15:08.

Hello. Tomorrow's forecast is not too bad.

:15:09.:15:21.

There will be a little bit of patchy rain thanks to a cold front. Then

:15:22.:15:29.

the afternoon brightens. Thd isobars are packed together tomorrow, so the

:15:30.:15:32.

breeze will pick up. That whll continue into Thursday. A wdt and

:15:33.:15:43.

windy afternoon. The night should remain dry. The odd spot of rain

:15:44.:15:49.

across northern areas. It whll be frost free. The sun will rise in the

:15:50.:16:06.

morning at ten past six. Sole brightness to start, otherwhse cloud

:16:07.:16:12.

streaming in from the West. Patchy rain in places. A risk of one or two

:16:13.:16:20.

fleeting showers. Many of us will remain dry. The breeze will be

:16:21.:16:30.

fresh, top temperatures of ten or 11 degrees. Perhaps 13. Wednesday looks

:16:31.:16:46.

windy but try and bright. Hhghs of 1415 degrees. But Thursday, after a

:16:47.:16:50.

dry start, rain will spread in from the west. That will be accolpanied

:16:51.:16:55.

by a strong wind. More than 5000 people were out in

:16:56.:17:20.

the East Yorkshire countryshde for the running of the Holderness Point

:17:21.:17:23.

to Point. The annual steepldchase has been taking place on Lord

:17:24.:17:27.

Hotham's estate in South Dalton for more than 50 years. It's thd

:17:28.:17:30.

county's only significant event over jumps. Our sports reporter Simon

:17:31.:17:34.

Clark was there. In stark contrast to last ydar, the

:17:35.:17:37.

sun made a welcome appearance over East Yorkshire. This tradithonal

:17:38.:17:40.

form of steeplechase racing takes place on a temporary track. The

:17:41.:17:43.

tradition of Point to Point dates back years. Starting off as a race

:17:44.:17:47.

between farmers, it is now open to any amateur with access to ` horse.

:17:48.:17:54.

Point to Point is actually the original steeplechase, when they

:17:55.:17:57.

used to race from one church to another. That's where the n`me

:17:58.:18:00.

steeplechasing comes from. Two people pitching their best horses

:18:01.:18:07.

against one another. One of those racing was Joanna

:18:08.:18:10.

Mason, who lives in East Yorkshire. She had a fancied mount in race two.

:18:11.:18:17.

If you think about being sc`red you'd never get anywhere. You've

:18:18.:18:22.

just got to get on with it. For one day only, this sheep grazing

:18:23.:18:25.

field is transformed into a mini town, as thousands of peopld turn up

:18:26.:18:29.

to see these wonderful horsds. We come every year and enjox it it

:18:30.:18:33.

is a good family day out. It's good fun!

:18:34.:18:36.

See the horses, put some bets on and just have a nice day out with

:18:37.:18:38.

friends. A lovely family day out and it's

:18:39.:18:40.

good fun! In this hamper, we have sallon, pork

:18:41.:18:43.

pies, quiche, and plenty of champagne.

:18:44.:18:45.

Joanna came in third after the gruelling miles aboard Royal deal.

:18:46.:18:55.

He normally flies home but ht is quite undulating there and he just

:18:56.:18:58.

couldn't let himself down on it I would love to have won. But that's

:18:59.:19:01.

racing, isn't it? Today, the marquee, shops and fences

:19:02.:19:05.

come down and this will be ` sheep pasture again.

:19:06.:19:22.

Simon's at the KC stadium tonight on another story, some breaking news

:19:23.:19:25.

about the plans to change Htll City's name to the Hull Tigdrs. The

:19:26.:19:28.

BBC understands that the Football Association is going to rejdct the

:19:29.:19:31.

application for a change whhch has been submitted by Hull's ch`irman

:19:32.:19:40.

Assem Allam. What's being s`id this evening?

:19:41.:19:49.

It is fair to say that the word coming from London today is probably

:19:50.:19:53.

the most significant in the story so far. The membership committde, the

:19:54.:19:58.

subcommittee that took submhssions from people who were for or against

:19:59.:20:04.

this name change, they said that the recommendation after consultation

:20:05.:20:09.

with stakeholders will be dhscussed and voted upon at a full FA Council

:20:10.:20:17.

meeting. Hull city are able to make a further submission before that 9th

:20:18.:20:23.

of April meeting. I underst`nd from that that the FA are not convinced

:20:24.:20:27.

by the argument the football club have put forward.

:20:28.:20:30.

This comes off the back of `nother twist at the weekend when it was

:20:31.:20:33.

revealed that season ticket holders will be balloted on the isste. What

:20:34.:20:37.

more do we know about that? It looks as though that ballot is in

:20:38.:20:43.

direct response to this movd by the FDA. We caught up with fans

:20:44.:20:50.

attending the Manchester City game. The best thing to do is ask the

:20:51.:20:55.

fans, and that is what he's doing. With the greatest respect to the

:20:56.:20:58.

chairman, generations of fans will continue to be here long after him.

:20:59.:21:04.

I think it's fair because you pay to see your club, and just to go

:21:05.:21:14.

against them is not fair. The 9th of April is the all day and

:21:15.:21:18.

that is just a few days before the FA Cup final.

:21:19.:21:27.

On the pitch, the club suffdred a 2`0 defeat against Manchestdr City.

:21:28.:21:30.

The visitors played most of the game with ten men when Vincent Kompany

:21:31.:21:34.

was sent off but soon after David Silva scored an excellent goal. The

:21:35.:21:37.

game was marred by an ugly confrontation when Manchestdr City

:21:38.:21:40.

goalkeeper Joe Hart alleged that Hull's George Boyd spat in his

:21:41.:21:47.

direction. Scunthorpe United ended a rtn of

:21:48.:21:50.

four straight draws with a win at Plymouth on Saturday. The Iron

:21:51.:21:53.

extended their unbeaten run to 1 games. Dave Syers scored thhs in the

:21:54.:21:57.

79th minute ` his tenth of the season. Substitute Hakeeb Adelakun

:21:58.:22:00.

then caused the ball to rebound off the Plymouth keeper for the second.

:22:01.:22:03.

The result leaves them second in League Two.

:22:04.:22:12.

Rugby League: Hull FC suffered a narrow loss to Castleford Thgers

:22:13.:22:17.

yesterday. It was decided bx this late drop goal. The Black and Whites

:22:18.:22:22.

led for most of the game, btt it gave Castleford the win by 09 points

:22:23.:22:27.

to 16. And you can see all the highlights

:22:28.:22:31.

of that game later tonight `long with Hull KR against Wigan. That's

:22:32.:22:34.

on the Super League Show at 11. 0pm on BBC One.

:22:35.:22:36.

Before that, you can catch highlights and analysis of

:22:37.:22:39.

Scunthorpe United's victory at Plymouth. That's on Late Kick Off at

:22:40.:22:41.

11.20pm. Lincolnshire skier Jade Ethdrington

:22:42.:22:54.

says she's uncertain about her future in the sport. That's in spite

:22:55.:22:57.

of winning a record breaking four medals at the Winter Paralylpics.

:22:58.:23:00.

Jade was the flagbearer for Great Britain at yesterday's closhng

:23:01.:23:03.

ceremony in Sochi. She and her guide Caroline Powell won three shlvers

:23:04.:23:07.

and a bronze at the games, becoming the most successful British women in

:23:08.:23:16.

Winter Paralympic history. We've achieved so much. I think I

:23:17.:23:20.

just need to think about thd success and really celebrate what wd have

:23:21.:23:26.

done now. It is hard becausd you do the four`year Olympic cycle and now

:23:27.:23:30.

we're at the end of that ch`pter. I'll always carry on skiing. I love

:23:31.:23:33.

the sport, so we'll just have to wait and see.

:23:34.:23:37.

Jade, along with the rest of the Paralympic team, is due back at

:23:38.:23:40.

Heathrow Airport tonight and we ll hopefully catch up with her in

:23:41.:23:48.

Lincolnshire later in the wdek. Filming is about to start in Hull

:23:49.:23:52.

which will see parts of the City transformed into 1940s London.

:23:53.:23:55.

Producers will be in Hull ndxt month making a new film called Girls Night

:23:56.:23:59.

Out. The story sees the young royal princesses, Elizabeth and M`rgaret,

:24:00.:24:02.
