Many thanks. There's more throughout the evening on the BBC News Channel.

And I'll be back with the Hello and welcome to Look North

:00:00.:00:15.

There are claims that the rdduction in Humber Bridge tolls has created a

:00:16.:00:18.

mini`housing boom in parts of Northern Lincolnshire. It is two

:00:19.:00:21.

years since the cost of travelling across the bridge was halved. And as

:00:22.:00:25.

our business correspondent, Paul Murphy, reports, homeowners and

:00:26.:00:27.

investors are voting with their feet. On this newly built housing

:00:28.:00:35.

estate in Barton, nearly half of all the people moving in used to live on

:00:36.:00:40.

the other side of the bridgd. Gavin is one of them. He says that the

:00:41.:00:44.

toll cuts were a big factor in his decision to move. There seels to be

:00:45.:00:48.

a lot coming over, indeed mx sister and brother`in`law moved in over

:00:49.:00:52.

here a couple of weeks ago, and one of my cousins is planning on moving

:00:53.:00:56.

over as well. I think there is a lot of people starting to look over here

:00:57.:01:01.

and see Barton for what it hs, it has a lovely local communitx feel to

:01:02.:01:05.

it. The tolls were cut two xears ago following a long campaign. The

:01:06.:01:09.

argument was that the bridgd was becoming a barrier to econolic

:01:10.:01:17.

growth. Now it seems that the growth is really happening. We havd

:01:18.:01:21.

invested in new plants and lachinery because we are busier. We h`ve

:01:22.:01:24.

recruited more local people, so we are investing in the local dconomy.

:01:25.:01:29.

Our local employees are invdsting in it as well as they spend thdir

:01:30.:01:34.

money. So it is great news `nd it has certainly made a differdnce

:01:35.:01:38.

Perhaps the most noticeable difference is to the local housing

:01:39.:01:41.

market, where it is claimed there are still bargains to be had. I

:01:42.:01:45.

guess it is due to several factors. One, that our prices are chdaper and

:01:46.:01:49.

everyone is on a budget these days and looking for better valud for

:01:50.:01:53.

properties. The other one is that we are a small commuity and we still

:01:54.:01:58.

have that village feel. As hndustry continues to invest, there hs a

:01:59.:02:01.

feeling of optimism in commtnities all around the Humber. For this

:02:02.:02:04.

town, the bridge toll cuts `ppear to be delivering what they prolised.

:02:05.:02:12.

Paul Murphy, BBC Look North, Barton. Two men have been released on police

:02:13.:02:15.

bail by officers investigathng the death of a man in Market Rasen. A

:02:16.:02:18.

thirty`five`year old man was found dead at a flat in the town on Friday

:02:19.:02:22.

night. A postmortem examination has proved inconclusive and offhcers say

:02:23.:02:26.

it may be some time before they know how he died.

:02:27.:02:30.

Concerns have been raised about the amount of money being lost by people

:02:31.:02:33.

who use fixed`odds betting terminals. The Campaign for Fair

:02:34.:02:38.

Gambling says more than ?13 million was lost by people living in Hull

:02:39.:02:41.

and North East Lincolnshire last year. But one Yorkshire MP says

:02:42.:02:44.

gambling isn't causing major problems. The facts are that problem

:02:45.:02:52.

gambling is on the way down. Every form of gambling, apart frol two,

:02:53.:02:55.

the richest people particip`te in more than the poorest peopld.

:02:56.:02:57.

Including fixed`odds betting terminals. More richer people play

:02:58.:03:03.

than poorer people. The onlx two forms of gambling that are played by

:03:04.:03:06.

more poorer people than richer people are bingo and scratch cards.

:03:07.:03:11.

The final flight from Humberside Airport to Copenhagen left this

:03:12.:03:13.

afternoon. Scandinavian Airlines launched the route in Octobdr, but

:03:14.:03:16.

say they haven't attracted dnough passengers to make it sustahnable.

:03:17.:03:25.

In Football, there were wins for Hull City and Scunthorpe Unhted

:03:26.:03:26.

yesterday. The victories me`n that the Tigers are almost certahn to

:03:27.:03:30.

stay in the Premier League while the Iron are closing in on promotion

:03:31.:03:33.

from League Two. Mike Morris rounds up all of yesterday's action.

:03:34.:03:40.

Before the game against Swansea City, Hull City manager Steve Bruce

:03:41.:03:44.

said a win would be enough to banish thoughts of relegation. The Tigers

:03:45.:03:47.

started well and George Boyd, who was back after a three`match ban for

:03:48.:03:50.

spitting, headed them in front shortly before half time. Swansea

:03:51.:03:53.

increased their share of possession in the second half, but didn't

:03:54.:03:56.

trouble Steve Harper, and the Tigers are now nine points clear of the

:03:57.:04:00.

relegation zone. It was a htge win in the context of where we `re in

:04:01.:04:04.

the season, against a fellow team that is in or around us. We have

:04:05.:04:08.

done enough to win the game and I think we showed the side of us that

:04:09.:04:12.

we have had all along ` there is a resilience among them and a

:04:13.:04:15.

determination to get somethhng. And they have done it again tod`y. In

:04:16.:04:18.

League Two, Scunthorpe Unitdd's unbeaten run has been extended to 25

:04:19.:04:22.

games after Sam Winnall's pdnalty gave them a 1`0 win at Torqtay. The

:04:23.:04:26.

home side had a penalty of their own, but Sam Slocombe saved it and

:04:27.:04:29.

his side need just three wins from five games to ensure promothon. Mike

:04:30.:04:37.

Morris, BBC Look North. Hull Kingston Rovers have gone out

:04:38.:04:40.

of the Challenge Cup at the fourth`round stage at Craven Park

:04:41.:04:43.

this afternoon. The Robins led at half`time against Warrington, but

:04:44.:04:49.

eventually lost 28`24. Thousands of people have taken part

:04:50.:04:53.

in the Lincoln 10K today. The race takes runners around the historic

:04:54.:04:57.

city. The winner finished in just over 32 minutes, but the majority of

:04:58.:05:00.

the entrants were simply trxing to raise money for charity. We are

:05:01.:05:05.

raising money and awareness for the children's neo`natal unit at the

:05:06.:05:08.

Lincoln Hospital. The vicar's outfit? I have no idea, it just came

:05:09.:05:13.

to me. And I will be juggling as well. We are all ex`RAF reghment

:05:14.:05:17.

gunners and we are running together. We're doing it for Help Me Hear

:05:18.:05:21.

which is for one of our comrades' sons, raising funds for his cochlear

:05:22.:05:23.

implants. Now it is time for the weather with

:05:24.:05:33.

Jennifer Batrum. Hello, good evening. There are signs th`t things

:05:34.:05:37.

are turning a bit more settled as we head through the week. But we do

:05:38.:05:41.

have some rain to get out of the way first. Some rain continuing through

:05:42.:05:45.

the night and there will be a lot of cloud around and the odd patch of

:05:46.:05:49.

mist and fog. Temperatures `t 1 `12 degrees. So another mild night to

:05:50.:05:53.

come. We have some heavy rahn in the forecast for Monday and it will be

:05:54.:05:56.

quite persistent as we go through the day. Temperatures tomorrow up to

:05:57.:05:59.

a high of 14 degrees. That is all from us for now.

:06:00.:06:00.

Goodbye. Good evening, after a fairly mild

:06:01.:06:12.

weekend, a fresher week in store for the week ahead. Moreshine at times

:06:13.:06:17.

but not a huge amount tomorrow because that's shaping up to be a

:06:18.:06:21.

wet day for just about all of us. The rain developing through the

:06:22.:06:24.

night and it is still wet at
