That's all from the BBC News at Six, so it's goodbye from me and, on

:00:00.:00:00.

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

:00:00.:00:13.

Promises of faster journey times, as the Government approves plans to

:00:14.:00:19.

electrify the rail line to Hull That made chicken run electric

:00:20.:00:22.

trains rather than diesel trains, it is quicker, smoother, more

:00:23.:00:25.

comfortable and quicker for passengers.

:00:26.:00:28.

Relief for the families of three East Yorkshire men held in Hndia, as

:00:29.:00:31.

they're granted bail. After "The Beer and Bingo Btdget",

:00:32.:00:34.

claims that this advert stereotypes working people. I think it takes the

:00:35.:00:43.

Mickey out of the poor. It confers that people only do bingo and beer.

:00:44.:00:54.

Sometimes people who play bhngo and drink beer do not go to work.

:00:55.:00:57.

And hundreds turn out in thd Yorkshire Wolds for the

:00:58.:00:59.

longest`running horse race hn England. It looks set to turn colder

:01:00.:01:04.

in the next 24 hours. Your detailed forecast follows shortly.

:01:05.:01:13.

Good evening. It's claimed that it will ldad to

:01:14.:01:18.

cheaper rail fares and quicker journeys, and this morning the

:01:19.:01:20.

Government agreed to the electrification of the railway line

:01:21.:01:32.

between Hull and Selby. Loc`l MPs have been lobbying for the love and

:01:33.:01:36.

say they'd like work to beghn so that the improvements are fhnished

:01:37.:01:39.

before Hull becomes City of Culture in 2017. Our business correspondent

:01:40.:01:43.

Paul Murphy reports. Hull lhes at the end of the line and belheves it

:01:44.:01:46.

has suffered economically as a result. It is all the litig`tion

:01:47.:01:52.

will bring a faster and mord reliable train service. The right

:01:53.:01:56.

honourable gentleman will bd aware of this campaign. Today a crusty

:01:57.:02:02.

party campaign by local MPs was given the answer it wanted. ``

:02:03.:02:08.

cross`party. I can make avahlable to 5p to take this project up to level

:02:09.:02:16.

three. What is currently underway to electrify the trans`Pennine route

:02:17.:02:19.

from Liverpool to Manchester to Leeds and now those plans whll go

:02:20.:02:24.

beyond Selby, the announcemdnt today from the Government will sedk

:02:25.:02:26.

overhead line equipment adddd to the root between there and Hull, opening

:02:27.:02:31.

the city up to the rest of the UK's high`speed network.

:02:32.:02:35.

The litigation brings all sorts of benefits. It is more environmentally

:02:36.:02:40.

sound, it uses less energy, and provide small acceleration, more

:02:41.:02:46.

comfortable trains and over`ll there is what is called a Sparks dffect,

:02:47.:02:50.

it will attract more people. `` electrification. It has been

:02:51.:02:56.

welcomed by the business colmunity. This business is based in Htll but

:02:57.:02:59.

reliant on the train to say London`based clients. It is going to

:03:00.:03:03.

be great because you have to train in Hull, it will be fast and clean

:03:04.:03:08.

and with less disruption. Great news. The big question is whether

:03:09.:03:12.

this work will be ready in time for 2017 when Hull celebrates its year

:03:13.:03:18.

of culture and when more th`n 1 million visitors are expectdd to

:03:19.:03:22.

come to the area. The reality is that the timing is going to be very

:03:23.:03:26.

tight indeed. We need this now, not some unspecified date the other side

:03:27.:03:32.

of 2019, the original plan. This announcement means we can start work

:03:33.:03:36.

next year and have it compldted well before 2017.

:03:37.:03:41.

The private company, Hull Trains, will plough more than ?19 mhllion

:03:42.:03:45.

into the scheme. The project promises to transform the r`ilway

:03:46.:03:48.

network in a region hungry for regeneration. Many will feel it

:03:49.:03:54.

cannot start soon enough. P`ul Murphy, BBC Look North, Hull.

:03:55.:03:57.

The managing director of Hull Trains is Will Dunnett. I asked hil what

:03:58.:04:00.

benefits electrification wotld bring for passengers.

:04:01.:04:08.

There are many benefits, Peter. Firstly, we will be moving to

:04:09.:04:13.

slicker electric units that have greater capacity, more opportunity

:04:14.:04:17.

for people to get down to London. The advantage for passengers is that

:04:18.:04:21.

we can lower fares because of that capacity. In terms of a reghon as

:04:22.:04:26.

well, it is not just about getting to London, it provides an

:04:27.:04:29.

opportunity for people to gdt to Manchester, Liverpool. How luch

:04:30.:04:35.

quicker will be Johnny to Lhverpool the? `` London. It will be puicker,

:04:36.:04:45.

no doubt about it. We will work with our colleagues to work out the lives

:04:46.:04:48.

of those journey times. The next stage is to speak to those people

:04:49.:04:53.

and put those plans together. The question everyone wants to know

:04:54.:04:57.

is when this work will start and could it be done in time for the

:04:58.:05:01.

City of Culture and 2017? Is that realistic? In terms of the work it

:05:02.:05:10.

starts tomorrow. We need to sign off on the next bit of money and that

:05:11.:05:13.

will begin with a series of meetings. In terms of producing the

:05:14.:05:20.

electric lines, that is certainly a possibility but we must work with

:05:21.:05:25.

our colleagues. In terms of the procurement of begin its and

:05:26.:05:28.

bringing electric units to the city, that has a longer time scald and

:05:29.:05:32.

will be midway through the City of Culture, but we will not know until

:05:33.:05:36.

we speak to our colleagues `t the Department of Transport. Prdssure is

:05:37.:05:41.

on Hull Trains from time to time, especially last year when it comes

:05:42.:05:46.

to reliability. Will this m`ke Hull Trains more robust with less

:05:47.:05:51.

cancellations? Yes, and if H am honest we have proven that tsing the

:05:52.:05:56.

units that we have done is over the last six months, our units `re more

:05:57.:06:01.

reliable just by their nature, so, of course, it will improve that as

:06:02.:06:07.

well as well as providing brand`new units which has got to be a good

:06:08.:06:12.

sign for the city and the progress we are making as a business. Thank

:06:13.:06:18.

you, Mr .edu. Thank you. Good news for the city of whole We

:06:19.:06:21.

will continue to follow that story. In a moment: The latest on the

:06:22.:06:25.

campaign to have the speed limit raised on this main road in Grimsby.

:06:26.:06:33.

The mother of a man from Hull who's been held in an Indian Prison for

:06:34.:06:37.

five months says she's over the moon after hearing he'll be rele`sed on

:06:38.:06:40.

bail next week. Ray Tindall, Paul Towers and Nicholas Simpson are all

:06:41.:06:43.

from East Yorkshire and werd part of a team helping an American company

:06:44.:06:49.

protecting itself from pirates. Ray's mum says she's relievdd that

:06:50.:06:52.

he'll soon be released from jail. Amy Cole reports.

:06:53.:07:00.

After months of worry, finally there is light at the end of the tunnel.

:07:01.:07:04.

Carole Edmonds's son Ray, from Hull, is among six British former soldiers

:07:05.:07:08.

who have been jailed in Indha since October. After a number of failed

:07:09.:07:11.

bail applications, today a court ruled they could be freed. H am over

:07:12.:07:20.

the moon. Release, just tot`l relief. To think that he won't be

:07:21.:07:25.

having to cope with those conditions for much longer.

:07:26.:07:27.

Ray was working for an Amerhcan security company, providing

:07:28.:07:29.

anti`piracy protection, when the Indian authorities detained their

:07:30.:07:32.

vessel. It had sailed from Xemen through waters rife with pirates.

:07:33.:07:35.

The owners say the Indian coastguard allowed it to enter the port of

:07:36.:07:39.

Tuticorin to shelter from a cyclone. But the authorities claim there

:07:40.:07:42.

wasn't the right paperwork for the weapons onboard. For the past five

:07:43.:07:46.

months the only way Carole could communicate with her son was by

:07:47.:07:50.

sending letters. She tells le he was desperate for toiletries and food.

:07:51.:08:00.

T`shirts, underwear, anything that I could send him to help him with his

:08:01.:08:05.

diet. And I have done that. I have sent parcels to him and I got a

:08:06.:08:11.

letter to say that he had rdceived them.

:08:12.:08:13.

A petition was started urging the British Government to step hn.

:08:14.:08:14.

Today, the foreign office s`id: what do you think will be the first

:08:15.:08:35.

thing you do after you see him again?

:08:36.:08:39.

I will give him a big hug, H would imagine! That is what mothers do.

:08:40.:08:45.

Then I will give him a good meal. Ray and the other men are dte to be

:08:46.:08:49.

released next week. Amy Cold, BBC Look North, Hull.

:08:50.:08:52.

A woman from Hull is calling on the Government to introduce a mdningitis

:08:53.:08:53.

B vaccine for children. The Government is providing more

:08:54.:09:01.

than ?5 million to local cotncils for pothole repairs in East

:09:02.:09:03.

Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. ?3million of it is for Lincolnshire,

:09:04.:09:07.

which it is claimed, has thd fifth largest road network in England

:09:08.:09:17.

We've `` we have announced hn the next parliament that we will

:09:18.:09:21.

allocate ?5 million to enable local authorities to get on top of this

:09:22.:09:26.

problem. In places the likes of Hull we are embarking on projects to

:09:27.:09:31.

improve the roads for everyone but this money will allow the council to

:09:32.:09:33.

repair around about 3000 potholes. Labour MPs have criticised `

:09:34.:09:35.

Conservative Party advert, which celebrates the Chancellor's decision

:09:36.:09:40.

to cut the tax on beer and bingo. Some claim the message to hdlp hard

:09:41.:09:44.

working people do more of the thing they enjoy" is patronising. Hull MP

:09:45.:09:50.

Diana Johnson said the Government needed to be educated about

:09:51.:09:55.

working`class culture. More from our political editor, Tim Iredale.

:09:56.:10:00.

It's one of the nation's most popular past times, enjoyed by

:10:01.:10:04.

millions. So you'd imagine the decision to reduce the tax paid by

:10:05.:10:08.

bingo halls from 20% to 10% would be seen as good news? Well, it was

:10:09.:10:15.

until this Conservative Party advert started doing the rounds on the

:10:16.:10:18.

internet, which proclaimed that cutting bingo tax and beer duty

:10:19.:10:21.

would help "hard working people do more of the things they enjoy." Can

:10:22.:10:31.

we please have a debate in government time to indicate to the

:10:32.:10:33.

benches opposite that working class culture is not just about bder or

:10:34.:10:38.

bingo or for that matter we`ring a flat cat `` cap or having a whippet.

:10:39.:10:45.

Labour claim the advert shows the Conservative Party is out of touch

:10:46.:10:48.

with working`class voters in the North, but today, one of thd party's

:10:49.:10:51.

big`hitters dismissed that accusation. We are all in this

:10:52.:10:59.

together and pulling togethdr. So do these bingo players in Hull

:11:00.:11:05.

think the advert is patronising Yes, like you are different to

:11:06.:11:10.

someone else? I think it is very patronising. I do not think they are

:11:11.:11:18.

mining it in a serious way. People do things that they enjoy. H think

:11:19.:11:25.

it takes the Mickey out of the row, it infers that we only drink beer

:11:26.:11:29.

and go to bingo. Despite their protestations, Labour

:11:30.:11:32.

say they have no plans to rdverse the Chancellor's cut to beer and

:11:33.:11:35.

bingo duty. And the Tories say it's been blown out of all proportion.

:11:36.:11:39.

But this was one budget row that hasn't been welcomed in Camdron s

:11:40.:11:43.

den ` Number Ten. Tim Iredale, BBC Look North.

:11:44.:11:49.

The Conservative MP Martin Vickers joins me from Grimsby this dvening.

:11:50.:11:57.

Mr Vickers, to help hard`working people do more of the things they

:11:58.:12:02.

enjoy, was this an own goal for the Tories? It is one of these daft

:12:03.:12:07.

adverts that we get on Twitter and the Internet. I think the whole of

:12:08.:12:14.

social media tends to catalxse politics but what it also shows is

:12:15.:12:18.

that Labour are so desperatd with the outcome of this budget that they

:12:19.:12:22.

have no answer to the proposals that were put forward and they are trying

:12:23.:12:28.

to divert attention from thhs. You cannot blame Twitter for thhs, this

:12:29.:12:33.

comes from your own party and Danny Alexander even said he thought it

:12:34.:12:37.

was a spoof at first. Did you think that? I first saw it on Newsnight

:12:38.:12:44.

and I thought, "I do not know whether this is used or not." What

:12:45.:12:49.

it shows is that Labour havd no answers to these policies. Does the

:12:50.:12:54.

Conservative Party chairman think that working class people in

:12:55.:13:01.

Cleethorpes as well as doing bingo and drinking beer, also raised

:13:02.:13:08.

whippets and were flat caps? Some people in all of the parties are out

:13:09.:13:11.

of touch with the working class I am very much at home in the Grimsby

:13:12.:13:18.

and very comfortable. Thous`nds of people work in pubs and in the bingo

:13:19.:13:22.

industry and let us get people out there and enjoying themselvds. It

:13:23.:13:28.

will cost them a lot less money So you would say that Grant Sh`pps is

:13:29.:13:34.

out of touch? I do not think so The Labour Party leadership equ`lly an

:13:35.:13:40.

end to the academic individtals from London and they are out of touch. So

:13:41.:13:48.

this does not patronise anyone? Clearly it was not intended to

:13:49.:13:52.

patronise anyone. Thank you for joining us, Mr Vickers. Do xou agree

:13:53.:14:03.

with the Labour Party that ht patronises people or do you think it

:14:04.:14:10.

as a fair message? Let us know what you think, contact us.

Still ahead tonight: Seriously injured by a train, the whedlchair

Tonight 's photograph this from Kevin Richardson. Hi, I hopd you

:14:51.:15:00.

like this photograph taken from The Deep.

:15:01.:15:05.

I was just thinking, you like a neat at the bingo, do you not? Someone

:15:06.:15:11.

has written into suggesting that the weather man has has here, h`ve you

:15:12.:15:19.

done that? I am not turning around to show you!

:15:20.:15:30.

We have the official start of spring this afternoon. But the error is

:15:31.:15:36.

quite chilly and it does not feel like it at the moment! Cert`inly at

:15:37.:15:41.

the moment there is quite a bit of rain around parts of Lancashire and

:15:42.:15:44.

Yorkshire. There is the cold front and you can see temperatures

:15:45.:15:49.

overnight will drop significantly. That rain will move away

:15:50.:15:54.

significantly and it will bd drier with clearer periods. Very windy at

:15:55.:15:58.

first and the wind will moddrate to a certain extent. Watch out, there

:15:59.:16:03.

could be a touch of ground frost with laws around two or thrde

:16:04.:16:12.

Celsius. That is 37 Fahrenhdit. The sun will rise in the morning at

:16:13.:16:21.

around about 6am. It is a bright and chilly starts today and all the

:16:22.:16:24.

parts should be dry. Good spells of sunshine. Temperatures will recover

:16:25.:16:31.

a little bit. The skies will turn cloudy later on. A few showdrs

:16:32.:16:35.

coming through on a brisk South`Westerly breeze. Let ts look

:16:36.:16:41.

at the top temperatures, not far from normal despite that can reveal.

:16:42.:16:46.

Eyes of 10 Celsius, that is 15 Fahrenheit and if you do catch a

:16:47.:16:49.

shower, it will move through quickly. Over the weekend, ` good

:16:50.:16:57.

gale of breadwinner. There will be a scattering of showers with some hail

:16:58.:17:00.

and sweet. Some good, drier and brighter periods in between. Where

:17:01.:17:05.

you have shelter from the breeze there will be risk of widespread

:17:06.:17:10.

ground frost at night. That is the forecast.

:17:11.:17:18.

You started the programme whth, "looks set to turn." That w`s an own

:17:19.:17:28.

goal by you, you only have one job! Plans to raise the speed lilit on a

:17:29.:17:32.

road in Grimsby that's seen numerous people caught by speed cameras will

:17:33.:17:33.

be considered at a meeting tonight. goal by you, you only have one job!

:17:34.:17:36.

Plans to raise the speed A report has recommended that North Dast

:17:37.:17:38.

Lincolnshire Council makes Peaks Parkway a 40mph road rather than

:17:39.:17:44.

30mph. It's after a campaign by drivers, but the police want the

:17:45.:17:48.

limit to stay as it is. Sar`h Corker reports.

:17:49.:17:51.

It's a major route used by thousands of motorists every week ` Pdaks

:17:52.:17:54.

Parkway connects Grimsby with the east coast.

:17:55.:17:57.

Since it opened in 1998, thhs stretch has been a 30mph zone. But a

:17:58.:18:02.

report by North East Lincolnshire Council has recommended that speed

:18:03.:18:09.

limit should be increased. You have got to have speed limits

:18:10.:18:13.

that people are confident in and drivers have confidence in. That has

:18:14.:18:18.

got to suit the road you ard driving on. 40 mph is an appropriatd speed

:18:19.:18:23.

limit for this type of road when they are trying to get traffic in

:18:24.:18:26.

and out of Grimsby quickly but safely.

:18:27.:18:34.

There was a campaign to get the speed limit increased with some

:18:35.:18:39.

motorist claiming they have been inundated with speeding tickets

:18:40.:18:41.

Julie Ramsden set up a petition signed by 2000 people, to scrap the

:18:42.:18:45.

cameras and increase the spded limit ` something first proposed by the

:18:46.:18:54.

council back in 2009. Some people are getting up to five speeding

:18:55.:18:57.

fines each day. It is a busx road and it does not need to be lore than

:18:58.:19:02.

30 mph which hopefully the council will resolve. They should not be

:19:03.:19:07.

speeding however, should be? They are effectively breaking thd law.

:19:08.:19:10.

There have been 90 crashes on this road in the last five years `

:19:11.:19:14.

Humberside Police want to kdep the limit at 30mph for safety. Some

:19:15.:19:18.

pedestrians agreed today. I think it should be 30 mph for noise pollution

:19:19.:19:23.

for residents and make it a safe road. It would be better if it was

:19:24.:19:33.

30 mph, safer to cross on. There are barriers of the side of the road,

:19:34.:19:36.

why not make it 50 mph? Councillors will decide at ` meeting

:19:37.:19:40.

tonight whether to approve the plans to raise the limit to 40mph and move

:19:41.:19:43.

to the next stage of public consultation.

:19:44.:19:52.

Are you in favour of reducing speed limits in our towns and cithes? You

can contact us with your ophnion before the end of the progr`mme

we're all encouraged to do something sporty for charity. A wheelchair
