chilly old week, George. Rais thank you. That's all from the BBC news

:00:00.:00:00.

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

after Beatles songs. The weekend forecast follows in 15

:00:45.:00:45.

minutes. A senior Lincolnshire Conservative

:00:46.:00:58.

Councillor has apologised after he posted a picture of scantilx`clad

women on social media to make a point about all women short lists in

politics. Richard Davies, who represents a ward in Granth`m and is

:01:05.:01:07.

the Chairman of the local Conservative Association, s`ys on

:01:08.:01:10.

reflection it was wrong to post the image but says Labour's seldction

:01:11.:01:13.

policy of only selecting wolen to run as candidates in some sdats is

:01:14.:01:29.

wrong. Sarah Corker has this report. It's this image of eight gl`mour

:01:30.:01:32.

models ` posted by a Linconlshire County Councillor ` that's caused

:01:33.:01:40.

offence today. Richard Davids, tweeting about the all`female

:01:41.:01:42.

selection process for the L`bour candidate for Lincoln, Lucy Rigby,

:01:43.:01:46.

asked if it was an actual photo of the hustings. To which Lucy Rigby

:01:47.:01:49.

responded, "And people question why aren't more women in politics?

:01:50.:01:53.

Then Lincoln MP Karl McCartney tweeted, "Guess those with sense of

:01:54.:01:56.

humour will appreciate." Others need to "get over themselves." Ltcy Rigby

:01:57.:01:59.

was selected in 2012 from a short list of four women. Unfortunately,

:02:00.:02:10.

there are still some sections of the Conservative Party that havd a very

:02:11.:02:14.

odd attitude towards women working, towards women in leadership roles,

:02:15.:02:21.

women in politics. County Councillor Rosanne Kirk was also on th`t short

:02:22.:02:28.

list. We want to head towards equality, and that is one w`y to get

:02:29.:02:34.

there by using all women short lists. But what he said was very

:02:35.:02:38.

offensive. Earlier Mr Davis told me he hadn't meant to upset anxone I

:02:39.:02:46.

am very sorry to have caused offence and have apologised for that. What

:02:47.:02:51.

we want is an opportunity to have a debate about all women short lists.

:02:52.:02:57.

If you discriminate against one group of people on the grounds of

:02:58.:03:01.

their gender, that is discrhmination and it should not be allowed. But in

:03:02.:03:05.

Lincoln today most felt it was inappropriate behaviour. I think

:03:06.:03:12.

he's being sexist. You have to think first before you post. Therd's long

:03:13.:03:18.

been a push to attract more women into politics. But Conservatives

:03:19.:03:22.

have resisted such a move to all female short lists for prospective

:03:23.:03:25.

MPs arguing candidates should be selected on merit. There ard not

:03:26.:03:30.

enough women Tory MPs. If the Tories have less women after the ndxt

:03:31.:03:34.

election and stored form a lajority, it is blatantly obvious that the

:03:35.:03:38.

people of this country do not think the Tory party is sufficiently

:03:39.:03:43.

representative of women and they should then considered it. The

:03:44.:03:47.

photo's now been removed, Mr Davis maintains all women short lhsts are

:03:48.:03:50.

sexist but does admit glamotr pics don't help. Sarah Corker, BBC Look

:03:51.:03:56.

North. We want to hear from you on this

:03:57.:04:00.

story, and the conduct of Rhchard Davies. Maybe you have a vidw on all

:04:01.:04:02.

women short lists? In a moment... Jade Etherington

:04:03.:04:26.

joins me to talk about her record medal haul at the Winter

:04:27.:04:31.

Paralympics. A father from Louth in Lincolnshire,

:04:32.:04:35.

whose family is living in Crimea, is fighting to bring them safely to the

:04:36.:04:39.

UK. The region is currently experiencing conflict betwedn the

:04:40.:04:41.

Ukrainian and Russian governments, after Russia took over Crimda. Ian

:04:42.:04:48.

Stacy says he's terrified for the safety of his wife, ex`wife and two

:04:49.:04:53.

sons. Kate Sweeting reports. Hello Nadia, how are things? Ian

:04:54.:05:01.

Stacy spends his time waiting for news. After ten years living in

:05:02.:05:05.

Ukraine, he's back in Louth to get medical treatment, leaving his wife

:05:06.:05:08.

and two sons behind in Crimda. The border control now is getting very

:05:09.:05:16.

tenuous. At the border crossing between the Russian and the Ukraine.

:05:17.:05:20.

Since Ian left Crimea, which was part of Ukraine, it's been taken

:05:21.:05:24.

over by Russia and he fears stands on the brink of civil war. He wants

:05:25.:05:28.

to get his wife, his youngest son, Timon, who is five, his elddst son,

:05:29.:05:31.

Aaron, who is eight and Aaron's mother out of the country btt that's

:05:32.:05:37.

proving difficult. Ian's falily lived near Sevastopol in thd south

:05:38.:05:42.

of Crimea. In order to secure a visa they would need to travel to Kiev

:05:43.:05:46.

for an interview and then home again. That's a 40`hour trahn

:05:47.:05:48.

journey, the equivalent distance of Louth to Vienna. Earlier Ian's ex

:05:49.:05:59.

wife Nadia told me that journey isn't safe.

:06:00.:06:28.

Ian wants the Foreign Officd to wave the rules, and allow his falily to

:06:29.:06:34.

travel to the UK and sort the paperwork out here. But the Foreign

:06:35.:06:37.

Office said that's impossible. In a statement it said, "We apprdciate

:06:38.:06:41.

this is a difficult time for Mr Stacy and his family. We have been

:06:42.:06:44.

in regular contact with Mr Stacy providing consular assistance,

:06:45.:06:46.

including Home Office guidance on the visa application process. We

:06:47.:06:49.

stand ready to provide further assistance as necessary." I have two

:06:50.:06:53.

sons there, one of who is a British citizen. Yes, I can go therd, yes I

:06:54.:06:57.

can bring him out of the cotntry. But, I don't know whether you have

:06:58.:07:01.

children, how would you feel if one of your children was ripped away

:07:02.:07:04.

from you, if you do have chhldren? Ian wants the Foreign Officd to

:07:05.:07:08.

waive the rules and allow hhs family to travel to the UK and sort the

:07:09.:07:11.

paperwork out here. The Fordign Office said that's impossible. In a

:07:12.:07:14.

statement it said... The government has to draw a line somewherd, it

:07:15.:07:18.

can't allow everybody into TK. I couldn't agree more. I would fully

:07:19.:07:21.

support that. But within thd rules there must be mitigating

:07:22.:07:24.

circumstances. How worried `re you for them? Very. They don't deserve

:07:25.:07:28.

it. I want them here. I want them safe. Ian Stacey ending that report

:07:29.:07:31.

by Kate Sweeting. Kate's with me now. Can Ian go and see his family,

:07:32.:07:34.

if they can't come here? Well until a few weeks ago Crimea

:07:35.:07:38.

was part of Ukraine, but we've now heard that Ukrainian troops have

:07:39.:07:41.

pulled out of Crimea meaning it s under Russian control ` effdctively

:07:42.:07:44.

a part of Russia. That means travelling in and out of Crhmea

:07:45.:07:47.

could be very difficult, particularly for Ian living in the

:07:48.:07:51.

UK, he might not be able to get to the area at all to see his family.

:07:52.:07:55.

As you heard in the report, the Foreign Office isn't denying Ian's

:07:56.:07:58.

family access to the UK, it just wants them to go through thd proper

:07:59.:08:01.

procedures and paperwork. Btt Ian says that 40`hour round trip to Kiev

:08:02.:08:05.

for the visa application process just isn't practical or safd, they'd

:08:06.:08:08.

have to travel through armed border crossings. He wants them to get to

:08:09.:08:12.

Kiev, onto a plane to Britahn, where his lawyer is waiting to do the

:08:13.:08:15.

paperwork. Otherwise he could face months or years without seehng his

:08:16.:08:25.

family. Part of Hull's Holderness road was

:08:26.:08:29.

closed this morning after a member of the public brought what they

:08:30.:08:32.

believed to be an explosive device into the Tower Grange Policd

:08:33.:08:35.

station. The device which w`s found in a nearby garden was made safe by

:08:36.:08:39.

a bomb disposal unit. The road has now reopened.

:08:40.:08:41.

The union representing some Yorkshire Ambulance Service staff

:08:42.:08:43.

says they're being forced to strike because the management refuses to

:08:44.:08:46.

meet them. It's the tenth strike arranged by the Unite union ` which

:08:47.:08:50.

says its members have concerns over new working times. The industrial

:08:51.:08:53.

action will end at eight o'clock tonight.

:08:54.:08:55.

Two divers had to be rescued by the Humber lifeboat off the coast at

:08:56.:08:58.

Withernsea after their boat lost power and drifted away from them

:08:59.:09:01.

yesterday. The crew used thdir emergency radio transmitters and

:09:02.:09:03.

hi`visibility markers to attract attention.

:09:04.:09:07.

Grimsby's new bus station is being used for the first time. Moving the

:09:08.:09:09.

station is part of a ?5 million scheme to improve the town centre.

:09:10.:09:12.

It's also been announced a new cinema and restaurants are planned

:09:13.:09:15.

at the Freshney Place shopphng centre.

:09:16.:09:23.

One of Hull's museums is behng closed to the public, so thd rest of

:09:24.:09:27.

the city's council`run musetms don't have to reduce their opening hours.

:09:28.:09:30.

Hull City Council says it m`de the decision so it didn't have to cut

:09:31.:09:34.

the budget of its flagship luseums. But it's not ruled out findhng money

:09:35.:09:37.

to reopen the Hands On History museum at weekends, as Anne`Marie

:09:38.:09:48.

Tasker reports. From next week, the Hands On History

:09:49.:09:52.

museum will only be open to organised school trips. The city

:09:53.:09:55.

council says the change will save ?150,000 a year, without having an

:09:56.:09:58.

impact on the city's flagshhp museums. The demand for the others

:09:59.:10:12.

is absolutely beyond belief. At half`time, over 3000 young people

:10:13.:10:17.

went into the maritime musetm. But I haven't left it at that. Wh`t we're

:10:18.:10:23.

looking at is can we squeezd the budget again in the next few months

:10:24.:10:27.

to find ways and means of opening the museum at weekends. But people

:10:28.:10:32.

in Hull are divided over whdther any culture budget should be cut, ahead

:10:33.:10:37.

of it becoming City of Culttre. If they want to keep that name, they

:10:38.:10:48.

should live up to it. The p`vements, you can trip up and fall all over

:10:49.:10:59.

them. Campaigners are fighthng the decision, with more than 500 people

:11:00.:11:04.

signing a petition. Food producers from East Yorkshire

:11:05.:11:07.

and Lincolnshire are trying to boost their sales to national and

:11:08.:11:10.

international buyers. They're at the country's biggest food show in

:11:11.:11:12.

Birmingham. It's estimated the industry is worth ?3.5 billhon

:11:13.:11:15.

across Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire... Employing around 8 ,000

:11:16.:11:24.

people in this area. Lincolnshire alone produces one sixth of

:11:25.:11:29.

Britain's crops. And the port of Grimsby handles 70% of the country's

:11:30.:11:32.

fish. Our Business Correspondent, Paul Murphy, has been at thd trade

:11:33.:11:36.

show in Birmingham, and sent this report.

:11:37.:11:39.

If you can't eat it it's probably not here. This is a big datd in the

:11:40.:11:44.

diary for food producers, a chance for them to tell their storx to

:11:45.:11:47.

industry buyers, the people who keep the food economy going. This is

:11:48.:11:52.

quite a challenge. Once you're outside the county boundarids it's

:11:53.:11:55.

difficult to get across what the product is. Everybody in

:11:56.:11:58.

Lincolnshire knows what Plulbread is and everybody has their own ideas

:11:59.:12:02.

what it should taste like. So, getting it out to other counties is

:12:03.:12:06.

a challenge. This Grimsby`b`sed processor has been preparing for

:12:07.:12:09.

today's show for weeks. Chapman s fishcakes is well known in the town

:12:10.:12:16.

but they want a bigger markdt. It's getting our name with the brand We

:12:17.:12:22.

are meeting new clients, hopefully, as well as seeing clients that we

:12:23.:12:25.

are already supplying. Figures published today are showing a sharp

:12:26.:12:28.

rise in UK food exports and events like this one are giving local

:12:29.:12:31.

producers, in particular, a chance to showcase their products to bigger

:12:32.:12:42.

markets. Among them are the east Yorkshire farmers bypassing the

:12:43.:12:47.

supermarkets to sell their peas There are 40 farmers in this group.

:12:48.:12:52.

One of the farmers owns the factory. We are trying to bring to the

:12:53.:13:01.

marketplace the first farmer`owned brands of frozen vegetables.

:13:02.:13:17.

70% of the country's fish is processed in Grimsby. We're looking

:13:18.:13:25.

at not just farming is a se`t on the ground, is probably worth ldss. The

:13:26.:13:31.

value added is actually in food processing. This two`day show will

:13:32.:13:37.

bring in thousands of visitors and our local food producers will be

:13:38.:13:41.

hoping that some of them will become customers.

:13:42.:13:55.

Still ahead tonight: A seashde town decides to pick Beatles songs as

:13:56.:13:57.

names for new streets. Marjorie and Michael have s`id, we

:13:58.:14:27.

have noticed that Paul must have a secret yearning to play the

:14:28.:14:31.

bagpipes, because he seems to be practising with his left arl pumping

:14:32.:14:39.

action. We are watching now. It is cold flapping. I'm gohng to be

:14:40.:14:45.

self`conscious now. Pump away!

:14:46.:14:46.

Shut up. Patchy rain in the West, mostly dry

:14:47.:14:57.

and used. This weather front will grind to a halt. The caused should

:14:58.:15:06.

stay dry and write later on. Has been a beautiful day. It was `4 last

:15:07.:15:16.

night, but temperatures havd recovered. Watch this weathdr

:15:17.:15:21.

fronts, because it will pollution. Clear this evening and clear first

:15:22.:15:30.

time tonight. Let's have a look at those minimum temperatures. Down to

:15:31.:15:37.

two Celsius, so there will be a fairly widespread ground frost. The

:15:38.:15:45.

sun will rise in the morning at 5:53am. It's cloudy start, patchy

:15:46.:15:55.

rain in western areas, but strive towards the coast. Some sunshine

:15:56.:16:11.

breaking through. The top temperatures, the breeze will be

:16:12.:16:26.

light. Nine Celsius. A lot of cloud on Friday with the risk of patchy

:16:27.:16:28.

rain heading in from the east. Sorry, I mist the forecast, I was

:16:29.:16:42.

looking at the arm. See you tomorrow.

:16:43.:16:48.

Plans are being made in Bourne to celebrate the success of thd

:16:49.:16:51.

Paralympic skier Jade Etherhngton. A Civic Reception will be held at the

:16:52.:17:00.

end of the month. Jade ` and her guide Caroline Powell ` won three

:17:01.:17:03.

silvers and a bronze at the Winter Paralympics in Russia. In a minute

:17:04.:17:07.

I'll be speaking to Jade, btt first Gemma Dawson takes a look at her

:17:08.:17:09.

recent success. We first met Jade in 2012, carrying

:17:10.:17:16.

the Olympic torch in Lincoln. After losing her guide, success sdemed

:17:17.:17:18.

unlikely, until she met Caroline Powell. The pair spent months

:17:19.:17:24.

training for the Winter gamds. Jade is partially sighted, so relies on

:17:25.:17:29.

Caroline to guide her round the course. On day one at Sochi,

:17:30.:17:34.

success, silver in the women's downhill. I am just really dxcited.

:17:35.:17:44.

I am an official Paralympic. Back in Lincoln, Jade's sisters watched her

:17:45.:17:52.

compete. To get two medals hn two races, that is a great achidvement,

:17:53.:17:58.

and hopefully she will get lore Success continued. Two more medals,

:17:59.:18:05.

making Jade and Caroline thd most successful women in British

:18:06.:18:12.

Paralympic history. We achidved so much, I just need to think `bout the

:18:13.:18:15.

success of celebrates what we have achieved.

:18:16.:18:22.

Celebrations continued back in London with tea at number tdn with

:18:23.:18:30.

the Prime Minister. Jade and her medals are with me here

:18:31.:18:35.

in the studio. I can't belidve I have the bees are. I did tell

:18:36.:18:45.

people, but nobody believes me. How does it feel to be the most

:18:46.:18:52.

successful woman in Winter Paralympic history? It's am`zing to

:18:53.:18:58.

think I did it in my first xear especially when I didn't have died a

:18:59.:19:03.

year ago and was suffering from injuries. It is thanks to the

:19:04.:19:09.

support from people at home, believing in me and Carolind. And

:19:10.:19:16.

you're back. They lost your luggage, so glad you didn't put

:19:17.:19:22.

these in the luggage. Yes, but I got it back. I cannot imagine what it is

:19:23.:19:29.

like hurtling down there was 5% vision. What messages are you

:19:30.:19:38.

getting on Caroline? A lot of the time she is just shouting at me to

:19:39.:19:48.

hurry up. She shouts Tuck, tax, tax. She says turning and ttrn and

:19:49.:20:05.

jump or dive. You have an e`rpiece and she has a microphone? Yds, I can

:20:06.:20:13.

talk to her and she has the same, so I can tell her when to go or slow

:20:14.:20:24.

down. Sometimes in slalom, the radio sometimes comes off, is but Caroline

:20:25.:20:29.

is pretty loud, so I can sthll hear her. We met in April in Lincoln and

:20:30.:20:41.

we only started skiing in Atgust. We skied in August and I had that goal

:20:42.:20:49.

and Caroline learns to want that goal as well. You have to h`ve such

:20:50.:20:58.

enormous trust in that person. I am still my own person, I can stop when

:20:59.:21:03.

ever I want, but we both trtst each other. And she gets medals `s well?

:21:04.:21:16.

Yes, so we have eight betwedn us. And you missed called by a very

:21:17.:21:26.

small amount. Yes, we skied hardest and we did miss out on the gold but

:21:27.:21:32.

we still won for medals. And you've got to civic reception. Thank you

:21:33.:21:39.

very much indeed for coming in. You had better take these. You will

:21:40.:21:43.

certainly have muscles carrxing them around.

:21:44.:21:48.

Hull City look to be almost safe in the Premier League after be`ting

:21:49.:21:51.

West Brom on Saturday. The Tigers 2`0 win means they are now dight

:21:52.:21:55.

points above the relegation zone ahead of Wednesday's trip to Stoke

:21:56.:21:57.

City. Scunthorpe United havd moved into second in league two after a

:21:58.:22:02.

one ` nil win over Burton at the weekend. The Iron go into tomorrow's

:22:03.:22:05.

match away at Cheltenham on the back of an unbeaten run of 22 gales. I

:22:06.:22:23.

spoke to the players and our focus now is Cheltenham. It has to remain

:22:24.:22:28.

that way. The bigger picturd is obviously promotion. The short`term

:22:29.:22:34.

goal is Cheltenham. Hull KR recorded their first win of the superleague

:22:35.:22:38.

season with a 16 ` zero victory at home to the Bradford Bulls. The

:22:39.:22:42.

Robins took the lead with a try from Omari Caro and remained the dominant

:22:43.:22:45.

side throughout. The result lifts Hull KR up to 11th. A disappointing

:22:46.:22:49.

result for Hull FC ` who suffered their first home loss of thd season.

:22:50.:22:52.

The black and whites lost sdven ` nil to Widnes Vikings. It's the

:22:53.:22:56.

first time in nearly three xears Hull FC have failed to scord in a

:22:57.:23:00.

Super League match. Streets on a new Bridlington housing estate could be

:23:01.:23:03.

named after famous songs by the Beatles. The town council ndeds to

:23:04.:23:08.

come up with a selection of street names which would be used in future

:23:09.:23:12.

housing developments. Beatlds songs may seem an unusual idea....but we

:23:13.:23:16.

do already have quite a few weird street names, as Jo Makel rdports.

:23:17.:23:28.

In Bridlington they have sole saintly streets and they have some

:23:29.:23:37.

stately streets. New houses which could be built here on the town s

named as Strawberry Fields, so we decided to come up with somd Beatles

names. It is really difficult to think of things people will like,

:24:02.:24:08.

will connect with. We went through lots of different Beatles songs to

:24:09.:24:11.

find appropriate names for possible streets in this area. Penny Lane,

:24:12.:24:14.

Eleanor Road, Rigby Meadows, etc. It is really difficult to think of

:24:15.:24:17.

things that people will likd, will connect with, who actually will want

:24:18.:24:21.

to live in that particular street named after. Because some streets

:24:22.:24:24.

like this one at Ludford ne`r Louth have ended up with some verx odd

:24:25.:24:27.

names indeed. There are whilsical ones like the Land of Green Ginger

:24:28.:24:31.

in Hull. And there's one in Bainton near Driffield, locals belidve it

names, what's it like when xou give your address out. Ron Chipm`n's

:24:47.:24:50.

say Dead Lane. I say Dear L`ne. It softens the blow a little bht. Does

:24:51.:24:53.

it matter to you that it's Dead Lane? No, no I wanted to call the

:24:54.:24:57.

new house Mortuary Cottage but the wife thought otherwise. But could a

:24:58.:25:01.

strange name affect the valte of a home? I don't think it has `ny

:25:02.:25:05.

effect on the value at all. I suppose if you had something like

:25:06.:25:08.

Massacre Street or Stench Street, that possibly might but nond that I

:25:09.:25:11.

can think of. I think Gallows Lane in Beverley is quite a quaint name,

:25:12.:25:15.

after all. Back in Bridlington, the Town Council say they're opdn to

:25:16.:25:18.

more suggestions so here's one they may want to consider.

of all`women short lists in the world of politics. One viewdr said,

:26:17.:26:24.

if the Labour Party had all `men's short lists, they would be branded

:26:25.:26:28.

as sexist, so why are all `women short lists all right? Another

says, it represents the out of touch Conservative Party. Paul is watching

in whole. I don't believe in all ` women short lists. We're supposed to

be living in an equal opportunity world. Kayleigh says, I think all

:26:49.:26:55.

`women short lists are wrong. The matter what your workers, you should

be hired for elected on your ability to do the job. Chris says, `nything
