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

:00:00.:00:11.

investigation reveals changes to housing benefit haven't freed up

:00:12.:00:14.

larger homes and have left some in rent arrears.

:00:15.:00:25.

Still in arrears. I go to the kitchen, and I'm struggling and

:00:26.:00:27.

selling stuff. A controversial series about life on

:00:28.:00:30.

benefits ` calls to stop another national network filming in Hull.

:00:31.:00:36.

It's actually not just going to hear people's feelings. It's going to

:00:37.:00:40.

cripple the whole area business`wise, and it's going to

:00:41.:00:42.

make it worse. A call for more arts groups to join

:00:43.:00:46.

in a 100 day cultural festival for Yorkshire.

:00:47.:00:48.

And the obesity epidemic in dogs ` why too many treats are making our

:00:49.:00:57.

pets too fat. And some very promising weather for

:00:58.:01:01.

the weekend. Join me for the forecast in 15 minutes.

:01:02.:01:09.

Good evening. When they were introduced a year

:01:10.:01:14.

ago, changes to housing benefits were supposed to encourage people to

:01:15.:01:18.

move to more suitable homes. But a BBC investigation shows the changes

:01:19.:01:21.

have failed to achieve that in many parts of East Yorkshire and

:01:22.:01:23.

Lincolnshire. Ministers said cutting benefits to families who had a spare

:01:24.:01:27.

room would free up under occupied homes. But in South Kesteven

:01:28.:01:37.

District Council in Lincolnshire, only twenty three households

:01:38.:01:39.

actually relocated. That's just over two percent of those affected by the

:01:40.:01:43.

benefit changes. In Hull, the figure is one hundred and sixty two

:01:44.:01:46.

households, which is just over three per cent. But it has been more

:01:47.:01:53.

successful in the East Riding. 204 households have moved out ` almost

:01:54.:01:56.

seventeen percent. The national average is 6%. Jake Zuckerman has

:01:57.:02:00.

been looking at the impact of the policy critics have dubbed "the

:02:01.:02:02.

bedroom tax". The spare room subsidy, known to its

:02:03.:02:06.

critics as the bedroom tax. A policy, says the government,

:02:07.:02:08.

designed to move benefit claimants with more bedrooms than they need

:02:09.:02:11.

into smaller accommodation more suited to their requirements. But

:02:12.:02:15.

evidence suggests it's failing in that aim, and driving tennants into

:02:16.:02:21.

arrears. Anne Lawton suffers from mental health problems. Changes to

:02:22.:02:25.

the benefits system meant she had to downsize from a two` to a

:02:26.:02:29.

one`bedroom flat. She was lucky enough to find somewhere to move to,

:02:30.:02:32.

but in the meantime, she's been left hundreds of pounds in debt. I'm

:02:33.:02:41.

still in arrears. I go to the soup kitchen, and I'm struggling, and

:02:42.:02:47.

selling stuff. I did have stuff to sell, but I haven't really got stuff

:02:48.:02:52.

to sell now. How am I going to pay back the rent? In North

:02:53.:02:54.

Lincolnshire, 48% of those affected by the so`called bedroom tax are in

:02:55.:02:58.

arrears, the highest rate in our region. In Lincoln, where the City

:02:59.:03:00.

Council is subsidising those affected, that figure is just over

:03:01.:03:04.

7%. In Hull, more than 20% are in arrears. In Hull, they've

:03:05.:03:08.

refurbished more than 70 small flats to try and meet the demand for

:03:09.:03:16.

one`bed accommodation. Been here two months, and it is so great to get a

:03:17.:03:24.

one`bedroom place. It took a lot of stress of me. In North East

:03:25.:03:26.

Lincolnshire, Shoreline Housing Association says its tenants now owe

:03:27.:03:32.

?155,000 in total. We provide as much support with partners as we

:03:33.:03:36.

can, but ultimately, the responsibility does all to be tenant

:03:37.:03:40.

to pay, and regrettably in sick instances where the tenant can't or

:03:41.:03:43.

won't pay, we have little option other than to take some form of

:03:44.:03:46.

action to try to encourage them to pay. But the government rejects

:03:47.:03:49.

accusations that the policy isn't working. If you are the taxpayer,

:03:50.:03:55.

paying for people to be on housing benefits, many of those cannot have

:03:56.:04:00.

spare bedrooms in their house, so how could they be paying for other

:04:01.:04:04.

people do have that? So as I said, you have to look at this from the

:04:05.:04:09.

full 360 degrees. Whatever the government's intentions, in East

:04:10.:04:10.

Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, thousands of people like Anne are

:04:11.:04:14.

now in arrears, many with no idea how they're going to pay.

:04:15.:04:19.

I'm joined by the Conservative MP for Beverley and Holderness Graham

:04:20.:04:21.

Stuart, who's a supporter of the changes to housing benefit. Good

:04:22.:04:31.

evening. Thank you for coming in. Do you accept the changes haven't

:04:32.:04:34.

actually work the macro absolutely not. I found your piece remarkable,

:04:35.:04:39.

and the introduction inaccurate. 6% of people in the first 11 months a

:04:40.:04:43.

fact that have moved out. That is 30,000 homes which were being used

:04:44.:04:46.

by people who didn't need the space. They are now being enjoyed by

:04:47.:04:50.

families previously in overcrowded accommodation. Just in the first 11

:04:51.:04:54.

months. It is triumphant. It is also saving the taxpayer. It doesn't

:04:55.:04:59.

sound it. Not when you listen to your piece, when the BBC lines of

:05:00.:05:03.

this research. You should go and research the people in London, the

:05:04.:05:09.

left`wing orientation of the corporation. It seems ever more

:05:10.:05:13.

present. Go and ask hundreds and thousands of people in overcrowded

:05:14.:05:20.

housing what they think. Ask the thousand families who are living in

:05:21.:05:23.

a house that can meet their needs, rather than picking on and

:05:24.:05:26.

suggesting as you did in your introduction, a falsehood, that it

:05:27.:05:29.

wasn't leaning to people moving out. It is leading to that. It is

:05:30.:05:33.

doing the right thing. It is saving money. I will ask people at home

:05:34.:05:39.

what they think in the moment. Let's read an e`mail from Arthur. He says

:05:40.:05:45.

the bedroom tax is ill thought out, unworkable and divisive policy. That

:05:46.:05:49.

is an e`mail from a viewer. Well, I am not surprised if you keep

:05:50.:05:51.

paddling the entire false those that have happened this evening. The

:05:52.:05:56.

truth is, 30,000 people already are able to move out of overcrowded

:05:57.:06:00.

housing into these homes. You had the ridiculous situation where the

:06:01.:06:05.

taxpayer was subsidising rooms which people didn't need at a time when we

:06:06.:06:08.

had a real shortage of housing. This policy is working. I am 100% behind

:06:09.:06:13.

it, and I am just disappointed that the BBC both nationally and locally

:06:14.:06:16.

should give such a totally biased view of the fact. 30,000 people

:06:17.:06:23.

rehoused in the first ten months. It is a triumph. One more question.

:06:24.:06:27.

Jake reports a lady has made the move but still owes rent and a

:06:28.:06:31.

former home, and is now having to sell family heirlooms to get the

:06:32.:06:35.

money together. What is your message to her? Well, I say again, if you

:06:36.:06:40.

look at the amount of arrears, your viewers, having listened to your

:06:41.:06:43.

introduction, would they think they have gone up or down? Do you know

:06:44.:06:46.

what they did in the last quarter of last year? They went down, an

:06:47.:06:51.

average of 4.1% to 3.9%. The whole picture painted by opponents of

:06:52.:06:55.

this, the left leading media and the Labour Party, is false, and arrears

:06:56.:07:00.

are down, and the number of people in homes who desperately need them

:07:01.:07:05.

is up. It is working. We need to have confidence. I am going to stop

:07:06.:07:10.

you there. Thank you for coming in. Some people have been debating this

:07:11.:07:12.

on our Facebook page. Stephen tells us: "we moved last year because of

:07:13.:07:15.

this bedroom tax after extensive adaptations for my disability. Now

:07:16.:07:19.

all the work has to be done again." Let us know what you think. Have you

:07:20.:07:27.

been affected by the changes? The details are on the screen.

:07:28.:07:37.

In a moment: A bright future ` how the announcements made by Siemens

:07:38.:07:42.

could bring more investment to the area.

:07:43.:07:47.

There's anger in Hull that the city could soon be featured in a

:07:48.:07:50.

television programme about life on benefits. Channel five says it's

:07:51.:07:54.

chosen to feature Hull as one of several locations in the UK. There

:07:55.:07:58.

are fears it could tarnish Hull's reputation so soon after a wave of

:07:59.:08:05.

good news. Caroline Bilton reports. It's been a week where Hull has been

:08:06.:08:09.

basking in good news. The city seems to be riding on a wave of

:08:10.:08:14.

positivity. But for one television programme maker, it's not the

:08:15.:08:18.

positive news they want to focus on. Channel five has chosen to feature

:08:19.:08:22.

Hull as part of programme about life on benefits.

:08:23.:08:30.

Scunthorpe has already been there. It featured in a Channel four

:08:31.:08:33.

programme last year called Skint, which was criticised by some for its

:08:34.:08:42.

negative portrayal of the area. It makes people look like scroungers.

:08:43.:08:45.

At the Goodwin Community College in Hull this morning, where youngsters

:08:46.:08:48.

are given training to help them back into employment, there was real

:08:49.:08:51.

anger that the city could be featured for all the wrong reasons.

:08:52.:08:56.

We just got the City of Culture, which was hard to get, and we won

:08:57.:09:00.

it, and we were grateful. Now, they are going to make whole look like on

:09:01.:09:07.

Benefits Street. Would You Come To Hull? No. It's Not Just Going To

:09:08.:09:11.

Hurt People's Feelings, It Is Going To Cripple The Whole Area

:09:12.:09:15.

Business`wise And Make It Worse. They Aren't Interested In Coming To

:09:16.:09:19.

A City Like All That, Despite Decades Of Economic Woes, Has Pulled

:09:20.:09:24.

Itself Up Eyes Bootstraps. They Are Just Not Interested In That. They

:09:25.:09:27.

Are Not Interested In Hearing About Us As A Community, Because It

:09:28.:09:30.

Doesn't Sell Advertising. That Is Why They Are Making It.

:09:31.:09:33.

It's Touched The Nerve Of Local Politicians Too. Can I Just Express

:09:34.:09:39.

My Dismay That Channel Five seem to be proposing to do a further

:09:40.:09:42.

documentary about people living in benefits in the north, and have

:09:43.:09:46.

chosen Hull? I wonder if we could have a debate on responsible

:09:47.:09:48.

documentary making. Channel five says they are "in the process of

:09:49.:09:53.

filming a show in Hull on the topic of benefits and employment. It will

:09:54.:09:56.

feature as one of several locations in the UK within a series." It's a

:09:57.:10:00.

city that does have high levels of deprivation and unemployment, but at

:10:01.:10:03.

the moment, Hull is in the spotlight for all the right reasons and many

:10:04.:10:07.

people here want to keep it that way.

:10:08.:10:10.

Caroline's in Hull this evening. We've had national TV programmes

:10:11.:10:15.

featuring Scunthorpe and Grimsby recently. Why do Channel five want

:10:16.:10:18.

to come to Hull? Yes, Hull does have a lot to smile

:10:19.:10:22.

about but there is no getting away from the fact that Hull is the fifth

:10:23.:10:27.

most deprived city in the UK and to a television producer in London this

:10:28.:10:30.

would make Hull an ideal place to feature. And let's face it, they're

:10:31.:10:34.

unlikely to come here to the marina, for example, and show Hull's good

:10:35.:10:37.

bits. However, they've chosen the wrong time to do this. There's a

:10:38.:10:41.

real pride in this city now that wasn't perhaps here ten years ago

:10:42.:10:52.

and people want to protect that. For the first time, people in Hull now

:10:53.:10:56.

have something to throw back at the critics. Will a programme of this

:10:57.:10:58.

nature tarnish Hull's current reputation? Will it dent that pride?

:10:59.:11:03.

I don't think so. Well, let's throw that one open. Another story we'd

:11:04.:11:07.

like your thoughts on. Will any good come out of people in Hull taking

:11:08.:11:11.

part or will it hinder the image? Do you think it will harm the city? Or

:11:12.:11:15.

have these programmes been done already and no one will notice? If

:11:16.:11:26.

you want to be in touch, the text number is 81333.

:11:27.:11:28.

Police are trying to find the parents of a little boy who was

:11:29.:11:32.

found wandering on a street in Lincoln. They say the boy is

:11:33.:11:35.

believed to be about two or three and was wearing red slippers.

:11:36.:11:38.

Officers think he may be Eastern European and they want anyone who

:11:39.:11:41.

knows him to come forward. The Environment Agency has met with

:11:42.:11:44.

organisations from East Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire to discuss

:11:45.:11:47.

what lessons can be learnt from recent flooding. More than a

:11:48.:11:49.

thousand homes were damaged along the Humber during last December's

:11:50.:11:52.

tidal surge. One resident from Burringham near Scunthorpe, who's

:11:53.:11:55.

still living with her neighbour, hopes action will be taken. The

:11:56.:12:03.

defence needs to be done along the river bank. I think that's the main

:12:04.:12:09.

thing. I hope we have learned our lessons and will do the work that

:12:10.:12:12.

needs to be done. It is a lot of heartbreak.

:12:13.:12:14.

Organisers of a cultural festival marking a hundred days until the

:12:15.:12:18.

start of the Tour De France say they need more groups to come forward to

:12:19.:12:22.

be part of the comes to Yorkshire. Events are being held across the

:12:23.:12:26.

county but just a handful are here in East Yorkshire, and only two were

:12:27.:12:29.

granted any of the funding set aside for the project. Tonight, the

:12:30.:12:34.

organisers have denied that East Yorkshire and Hull have been

:12:35.:12:36.

overlooked, and they want more groups to come forward to be part of

:12:37.:12:42.

the celebrations. A dance display to mark 100 days

:12:43.:12:46.

since the Tour de France will come to the reason. This event last night

:12:47.:12:50.

kicked up a festival running up to the start of the race, involving

:12:51.:12:54.

arts and cultural events across the region. It will involve things like

:12:55.:12:59.

this. This video artwork will be displayed at an art gallery in Hull

:13:00.:13:03.

from me, with help from an ?8,000 grant from the festival organisers

:13:04.:13:09.

Welcome To Yorkshire. I hope the effect of the wider festival will be

:13:10.:13:12.

very beneficial, and that people while they are in this area, will be

:13:13.:13:17.

attracted to come to Hull and see the wonderful museums and other

:13:18.:13:20.

displays that we have here at the gallery. When the tour comes to

:13:21.:13:24.

Yorkshire in July, none of the stages will be in the East of the

:13:25.:13:28.

county. But organisers say the Hull region will benefit from thousands

:13:29.:13:33.

of visitors bringing ?100 million to the local economy. This is the

:13:34.:13:35.

brochure setting out events that will be part of the 100 days of art

:13:36.:13:40.

and culture. In the opening, it says it will span the county, engaging

:13:41.:13:43.

the widest possible audience. Flip through to the map in the middle,

:13:44.:13:48.

and you can see that the 47 events, only three are listed as being in

:13:49.:13:52.

East Yorkshire or in Hull. More are being added, but of those, only to

:13:53.:13:57.

have been successful in getting any funding there were 28 applications,

:13:58.:14:02.

including a performance of A Taste Of Honey, which was rejected. He

:14:03.:14:09.

transforms into a show dog. This play is part of a festival in Hull,

:14:10.:14:13.

also listed as one of the tour's cultural events. But the organisers

:14:14.:14:16.

say they didn't even apply for funding, because they were made to

:14:17.:14:20.

feel it was not worth it. We got the feeling that most of the funding for

:14:21.:14:24.

the big projects would go to those in the leaves and Harrogate area,

:14:25.:14:28.

and that East Yorkshire, while it might be a conduit for people from

:14:29.:14:33.

Europe to that part of the world, it would not necessarily be a stop off

:14:34.:14:37.

point for people going to enjoy the race. Welcome To Yorkshire says it

:14:38.:14:42.

held road shows all across the region, inviting all types of

:14:43.:14:46.

applications. It was always clear that there were different strands to

:14:47.:14:51.

the festival, and that very clearly, it was not just about having events

:14:52.:14:56.

happening where the root of the race is going, although there was one

:14:57.:15:01.

specific strand for that. But everything else was about high

:15:02.:15:09.

quality work, imagination, vision. The organisers are still one groups

:15:10.:15:12.

from East Yorkshire to get involved, and more events will be added to the

:15:13.:15:20.

festival. Still ahead tonight: Hull City say

:15:21.:15:24.

their goalkeeper will miss the rest of the season after this collision

:15:25.:15:26.

at West Ham. And why our unhealthy eating habits

:15:27.:15:28.

could be making our pets too fat. We love to get your photos.

:15:29.:15:42.

Tonight's was taken by Vic Barnes. It is Wootton in North Lincolnshire.

:15:43.:15:46.

Thank you very much for that. We will have another picture on Monday.

:15:47.:15:53.

Good evening. How are you? Very well. I understand your weather show

:15:54.:15:58.

is one`year`old this weekend. Somebody in broadcasting said they

:15:59.:16:02.

didn't think it would last many weeks. Me, actually. Me as well! We

:16:03.:16:08.

have cloud spot is on this weekend, and you are a special guest, Peter.

:16:09.:16:14.

I know, this is a downhill part of my career, appearing on the weather

:16:15.:16:21.

show. Stevie Wonder and Bryan Adams, as well. What else do you want on a

:16:22.:16:26.

weekend? Let's look at the next 24 hours. Very promising. British

:16:27.:16:29.

summer Time starts on Sunday morning, and there will be some very

:16:30.:16:32.

pleasant sunshine developing. Inland, it will become warm, chilly

:16:33.:16:39.

along the coast. Drier air comes from the continent over the next 24

:16:40.:16:42.

hours. That will mean the weekend is looking very promising. It has not

:16:43.:16:48.

been a bad day, actually, better than we thought across parts of

:16:49.:16:54.

Lincolnshire. There has still been a keen easterly breeze. A lot of cloud

:16:55.:16:58.

further north. That will come and go overnight. There might be a bit

:16:59.:17:02.

patchy rain from the south`east for a time later. Clear spells

:17:03.:17:06.

redeveloped, a bit of low cloud further north, misty nurse in places

:17:07.:17:11.

where the lowest temperatures are down to six Celsius or 43

:17:12.:17:16.

Fahrenheit. The sun will rise in the morning at around 5:43am. Whole

:17:17.:17:21.

Victoria Dock at four minutes past five in the morning. A grey starting

:17:22.:17:28.

places. Patchy fog and mist will clear, turning Sunny quite quickly

:17:29.:17:34.

across The Wash. Sunshine pushes northwards. By lunchtime or shortly

:17:35.:17:37.

afterwards, much of our area will be bright, with good deal of sunshine.

:17:38.:17:42.

Let's look at the top afternoon temperatures. A cool breeze along

:17:43.:17:47.

the coast. Highs of just nine Celsius. Inland, 12 or 13. Further

:17:48.:17:54.

west, 16 or possibly 17 inborn. That is 63 Fahrenheit. Sunday looks good

:17:55.:18:01.

too. A grey starting places, the sun comes out, and temperatures in

:18:02.:18:06.

western parts again are 15 or 16 degrees. Get your shorts out. That

:18:07.:18:11.

is a kiss of death, if you mention that. Six o'clock on Monday on radio

:18:12.:18:15.

Lincolnshire and six o'clock on Saturday. You're going head`to`head

:18:16.:18:24.

with the man from the Cloud Appreciation Society. That is not a

:18:25.:18:29.

joke, as well. Have a good weekend. One of the key figures behind

:18:30.:18:32.

bringing the Siemens Green Port to Hull says it's just the beginning of

:18:33.:18:36.

more investment and jobs. The energy company announced this week that it

:18:37.:18:39.

was investing hundreds of millions of pounds in the Humber.

:18:40.:18:40.

more investment and jobs. The energy company announced this week that And

:18:41.:18:42.

there's now a huge sense of optimism for the future. Here's our Business

Correspondent Paul Murphy. It has been a momentous week in

Hull. The ?310 million investment by Siemens will mean more than 1000

:18:56.:18:59.

wind turbine jobs are created into factories on the Humber. And it is

:19:00.:19:06.

claimed that is only the beginning. Optimism breeds success, so I think

:19:07.:19:10.

the scale in terms of the offshore wind side of things will be very

:19:11.:19:13.

big, and we haven't seen what will come from that. I am confident the

:19:14.:19:17.

announcements we have had today will be followed by others in the future

:19:18.:19:20.

which will support that, but also putting Hull very truly on the map

:19:21.:19:26.

in respect of being a city where things are happening. This was a

:19:27.:19:30.

last big industry here, employing thousands. It collapsed after

:19:31.:19:34.

political argument over fishing grounds. The trawlers used to come

:19:35.:19:39.

in there. For former trawler men like Ken, news a big investment lift

:19:40.:19:44.

his spirits. It is brilliant news. This town is going to be buzzing

:19:45.:19:49.

again, like it was in the 60s, 70s and 80s, with the fishing industry.

:19:50.:19:53.

This could be as big as that, if not bigger. In the wake of the old

:19:54.:19:59.

maritime industry here, a new one is emerging. Siemens is, according to

:20:00.:20:05.

one local MP, the biggest fish that Hull has ever landed. And the

:20:06.:20:09.

challenge now for communities all around the Humber is to make the

:20:10.:20:14.

most of the hand they have been dealt. We should never lose sight of

:20:15.:20:18.

the importance of the Humber. It has always been very successful. The

:20:19.:20:22.

decline of the fishing fleet and the industry hit Hull very hard, but we

:20:23.:20:26.

have actually always been very successful in maximising our key

:20:27.:20:30.

asset, which is the Humber. The first judge could be advertised

:20:31.:20:34.

soon. Construction work on the new factories will begin within months.

:20:35.:20:41.

The end of a very successful week for the Humber area.

:20:42.:20:44.

And there'll be an in`depth look at Siemens coming to the Humber on this

:20:45.:20:47.

weekend's Sunday Politics. That's from 11:15 on BBC One.

:20:48.:20:55.

The RAF's "Dambuster" squadron, which used to be based in

:20:56.:20:58.

Lincolnshire, has been disbanded as its Tornado aircraft are withdrawn

:20:59.:21:01.

from service. A special ceremony took place today at the famous 617

:21:02.:21:04.

Squadron's most recent base, Lossiemouth in Scotland. It'll be

:21:05.:21:15.

reformed in 2016 at its new location at RAF Marham in Norfolk.

:21:16.:21:24.

A few minutes ago, I told you about a little boy who had been found

:21:25.:21:27.

wandering in the streets of LinkedIn. The police have just told

:21:28.:21:30.

us that his father has contacted them, and they have now been

:21:31.:21:35.

reunited. Now, it is a rare but serious

:21:36.:21:39.

injury, and a collision with an opponent on Wednesday night has left

:21:40.:21:42.

Hull City's goalkeeper in hospital for at least another week. Alan

:21:43.:21:45.

McGregor suffered kidney damage during the game against West Ham

:21:46.:21:49.

United and will probably miss the rest of the season including the FA

:21:50.:21:52.

Cup semifinal at Wembley. More from our sports reporter Simon Clark.

:21:53.:21:54.

This was the incident which robbed Hull City of Allan McGregor for the

:21:55.:21:58.

rest of this campaign. The impact bought West Ham a penalty and

:21:59.:22:02.

McGregor a red card, but it's the impact on his health that most

:22:03.:22:11.

concerns manager Steve Bruce. I went to see him yesterday in the high

:22:12.:22:15.

dependency unit in London in hospital. He is in a lot of pain,

:22:16.:22:22.

and we obviously hope he is going to come through it. We expect him to be

:22:23.:22:27.

in hospital for the best part of the week. The lads send him their best

:22:28.:22:31.

wishes, and hope him a speedy recovery, but it does not sound good

:22:32.:22:38.

for him. But equally, I think if the referee had seen the handball

:22:39.:22:40.

before, I don't big it would have got to that stage. The Tigers could

:22:41.:22:44.

make changes looking for the magic formula that will give them their

:22:45.:22:47.

10th win following win number nine at home to West Bromwich last week.

:22:48.:22:53.

Former player Kevin Kilburn and things despite this setback, the

:22:54.:22:58.

Tigers are separate vintage year. Steve Bruce knows exactly what is

:22:59.:23:02.

needed to stay in the league. He has the live area size of various

:23:03.:23:06.

clubs. I think this will be his defining moment, especially as a

:23:07.:23:10.

Hull manager. It will be a defining moment when he finally achieves

your football and rugby league. It seems dogs are becoming fat

:24:19.:24:21.

because of our unhealthy eating habits. More than half of pet owners

:24:22.:24:27.

in East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire admit to feeding their dogs high fat

:24:28.:24:30.

:24:31.:24:35.

Leanne Brown has been to meet one dog on a diet.

:24:36.:24:39.

It's weigh`in day for Zed the border collie, who's got a bit of a sweet

:24:40.:24:50.

tooth. He weighs 45.8 kilograms today. We used to have a neighbour

:24:51.:24:55.

that used to sit out in the garden with a cup of tea and biscuits and

:24:56.:24:59.

cakes and vest that and the other, and he used to go and demolish them.

Zed weighs around seven stone ` that's twice the average border

left over take`aways, biscuits, chips and even booze. 51% of owners

:25:10.:25:16.

in Yorkshire and the Humber give their dogs fatty treats. In the East

:25:17.:25:20.

Midlands, it's 54%. But Scotland tops the lardy league table, with

:25:21.:25:23.

72% feeding their dogs unhealthy snacks. The pet charity PDSA says

:25:24.:25:28.

owners simply don't realise they are causing any harm. A lot of pet

:25:29.:25:40.

owners think they are making their pets happy by giving them their

:25:41.:25:45.

food. What they don't seem to realise is, the health problems it

:25:46.:25:51.

can have. It can cause diabetes, it can cause arthritis, and heart

:25:52.:25:55.

disease. They are actually killing their pets with kindness by giving

them these extra foods. The charity have today launched this video to

Ruby the Jack Russell. But it's going to be a difficult task for

The time is five minutes to seven. Let's get a recap of the national

:27:12.:27:14.

would never want to force someone out of their home and face financial

hardship. I live on my own in a two`bedroom house. Not moving

:27:20.:27:22.

because my grandkids might want to come and stay. Peter, the MP, needs

:27:23.:27:27.

to get into the real world. There are many people who would like to

move, but there aren't enough suitable houses for them. I think

:27:31.:27:37.

arrears accrued after applying to downsize and should be scrapped.

:27:38.:27:41.

After all, it is not the tenant's fault there is nowhere to move to.

:27:42.:27:44.

Thank you for watching. Have a good weekend. I will see one

Monday. Good night.
