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

:00:00.:00:21.

Backing for the owners of Htll City. A woman from Lincoln dies trying to

:00:22.:00:25.

save two children swept into the sea in Tenerife.

:00:26.:00:29.

1,000 days to go to City of Culture 2017, but does Hull have thd ability

:00:30.:00:33.

to host big events? Some evdnts the city does not have the venuds for

:00:34.:00:43.

for the moment. And as Russ Wilcox becomes ` global

:00:44.:00:47.

record`breaker, what else h`s the time given the world? Torrential

:00:48.:00:51.

downpours this evening, but what about the rest of this week.

:00:52.:00:53.

Join me later. Good evening. The majority of Hull

:00:54.:01:10.

city season ticket holders who voted in a ballot have supported the

:01:11.:01:18.

change of name to a whole Thgers. But less than half of those eligible

:01:19.:01:24.

actually voted. The club's owners say they will not comment on the

:01:25.:01:29.

decision until after the wedkend's FA Cup semifinal. The footb`ll

:01:30.:01:35.

Association will make its comments on Wednesday. Last August, @ssem

:01:36.:01:41.

Allam announced his named the club.

:01:42.:01:47.

He said it would give the club a stronger brand identity, potentially

:01:48.:01:50.

worth millions of pounds. Btt the move angered some fans, seehng it

:01:51.:02:01.

went against over 100 years of history and tradition. The club

:02:02.:02:10.

balloted the fans. A short time ago, the results were released. The club

:02:11.:02:14.

says the forms went out to 05,0 3 pass`holders. Of those, 5874 took

:02:15.:02:17.

part in the vote. If you thhnk of it like an election, that's a turnout

:02:18.:02:21.

of 39%. This is how the restlt breaks down, counted, the club says,

:02:22.:02:24.

by an independent company. 2565 said yes to Hull Tigers with the Allams

:02:25.:02:28.

in charge. 2517 voted no to the name change. 792 fans replied saxing they

:02:29.:02:31.

were not good concerned and would support the club no matter what

:02:32.:02:36.

That is a 48 vote majority hn favour of changing the name.

:02:37.:02:48.

In an important week for thd club but NFA cup semifinal at Welbley on

:02:49.:02:52.

Sunday, this is not the end of the matter. A full F a council leets on

:02:53.:02:56.

Wednesday and they will votd on whether Hull city can becomd whole

:02:57.:03:10.

Tigers. `` Hull Tigers. Joining me now is Mark Gretton from

:03:11.:03:15.

the City Til We Die campaign group. Good evening. You have seen the

:03:16.:03:22.

results. What is your reacthon? Very hard to know what this tells us

:03:23.:03:31.

When you have a question th`t says yes to whole Tigers with thd Allams

:03:32.:03:41.

in charge, a lot of people wanted to support the Allams. But a lot of

:03:42.:03:53.

people didn't bother to votd. The club did say they would get in touch

:03:54.:03:58.

with all ticket holders. A lot of people who did vote found that there

:03:59.:04:04.

bought in forms were blank, the ballot boxes were shot when they

:04:05.:04:10.

said they were open. I think a lot of people gave up. Is it not time

:04:11.:04:17.

you just fell in line? Most supporters are happy to go with the

:04:18.:04:25.

owners? If this was a gener`l election, we would be having a

:04:26.:04:31.

recount over 48 votes of a difference. It is not a ringing

:04:32.:04:37.

endorsement. But this muddids the water. It makes it worse. I agree.

:04:38.:04:44.

I've no idea why the club dhd this at this time. We asked for this back

:04:45.:04:52.

in November. We could have fired a straightforward ballot. The club

:04:53.:05:13.

have tended. Mac if the F a doodle `` FA do rule against it, would you

:05:14.:05:22.

lose the Allams? I hope not, they have done a lot. Please let us not

:05:23.:05:30.

your thoughts on this one. In a moment. Missing out, the

:05:31.:06:00.

families who feel to benefit from free childcare. It's free, please

:06:01.:06:05.

come forward. A GP from Lincolnshire is one of two

:06:06.:06:09.

women who have drowned whild on holiday in Tenerife. Dr Bar`thi

:06:10.:06:12.

Ravikumar was a partner at the Heath Surgery at Bracebridge Heath near

:06:13.:06:17.

Lincoln. It's thought they were trying to rescue their children

:06:18.:06:26.

who'd been swept away by a wave They bear in Tenerife when the

:06:27.:06:30.

accident happened yesterday. Our correspondent Paul Murphy is live in

:06:31.:06:35.

Bracebridge Heath for us tonight. What else to we know about the

:06:36.:06:42.

circumstances of the accident? Those precise details surrounding the

:06:43.:06:46.

accident are still unclear. We are getting bits and pieces of

:06:47.:06:50.

information from the authorhties in Tenerife. It appears that Dr Barathi

:06:51.:06:58.

Ravikumar was in a family group with a doctor friend and another adult, a

:06:59.:07:04.

woman and two children who got into difficulty in this scene. It is

:07:05.:07:09.

unclear how that happened. There are suggestions the children were washed

:07:10.:07:20.

off rocks. The result was that Dr Barathi Ravikumar and her f`mily

:07:21.:07:23.

friend both drowned. There were three rescues. Local fisherlen went

:07:24.:07:31.

to help. There was a rescue effort by the local authorities and

:07:32.:07:36.

holiday`makers as well. Tributes have been paid to her, what have her

:07:37.:07:44.

colleagues said tonight? Shd had only worked here for three or four

:07:45.:07:54.

years, but made quite an impact People have been shocked by her

:07:55.:07:57.

death. In a statement, the Heath surgery where Dr Ravikumar worked

:07:58.:08:00.

said, "During her short timd with the practice, she was passionate

:08:01.:08:03.

about making a difference to health care in Lincolnshire. Dr Ravikumar

:08:04.:08:08.

will be sorely missed." Friends and neighbours of the doctor

:08:09.:08:16.

have been speaking to us tonight. It's a shame because she was a very

:08:17.:08:20.

nice lady and was admired bx everybody. A tragedy. Massive shock.

:08:21.:08:34.

I was in there a few weeks `go and you sorted me out, sort of blood is

:08:35.:08:43.

out. It's come as a shock. We expect a full details of these

:08:44.:08:47.

tragic incidents to unravel in the next few hours and coming d`ys, but

:08:48.:08:52.

an entire community in shop here. Thank you.

:08:53.:09:12.

Councillors in Norfolk have decided to strap plans for a waste

:09:13.:09:20.

incinerator. A former soldidr from East Yorkshire released on bail from

:09:21.:09:24.

an Indian jail, where he's been held since October, says he hopes to be

:09:25.:09:27.

back in the UK within weeks. Ray Tindall, from Hull, and Nicholas

:09:28.:09:31.

Simpson, who grew up in Cottingham, were among six guards arrested when

:09:32.:09:34.

Indian police detained the ship they were protecting. The authorhties

:09:35.:09:37.

said the boat had arms on board which didn't have the correct

:09:38.:09:39.

paperwork. It's been a nightmare, to bd honest.

:09:40.:09:42.

But, having been in the milhtary, I've got a different mindset to the

:09:43.:09:46.

normal person and I have bedn able to focus on the right sort of things

:09:47.:09:50.

rather than the bad sort of things. Being in jail for 170 days, it will

:09:51.:09:54.

take time is to get used to being out. The lawyer says I should be

:09:55.:09:58.

home hopefully in three to four weeks.

:09:59.:10:08.

It's emerged that families hn Hull aren't benefiting from government

:10:09.:10:10.

money which provides free childcare for two`year`olds. Despite having

:10:11.:10:14.

been on offer in the city for more than seven years, hundreds of

:10:15.:10:17.

parents are missing out. Hull was one of the first places in the

:10:18.:10:20.

country to pilot the scheme. The city council says it has more than

:10:21.:10:24.

350 free nursery places, and has been criticised by Ofsted for not

:10:25.:10:26.

encouraging parents to take advantage of them. Amy Cole reports.

:10:27.:10:31.

It's not all child's play hdre at Little Jumping Beans nurserx, but

:10:32.:10:34.

learning how to interact with other kids as well. And for some parents,

:10:35.:10:37.

the opportunity to send thehr young ones to nursery for 15 hours a week

:10:38.:10:42.

for free is an opportunity too good to miss. She's always singing and

:10:43.:10:46.

talking. She's the first ond of my kids that have gone for the

:10:47.:10:50.

2`year`old funding. The othdrs never did and there's a big difference.

:10:51.:10:55.

I think it's one of the best things we've done, as far as our child is

:10:56.:10:59.

concerned coming to nursery. He can be with his parents, but thdre's

:11:00.:11:02.

nothing like making friends and being with other adults. I think

:11:03.:11:05.

it's the best thing for him, really. He's my first to come to a

:11:06.:11:09.

two`year`old nursery. I've got a little girl, she turns two hn three

:11:10.:11:14.

weeks, so she might be joinhng him. While these parents are makhng the

:11:15.:11:18.

most of the incentive, therd are plenty who aren't. Hull Citx Council

:11:19.:11:21.

has been criticised by Ofstdd for not encouraging more parents from

:11:22.:11:24.

disadvantaged backgrounds to take up the free nursery places. Thd city

:11:25.:11:27.

council says that for the up`coming summer term, it's received 208

:11:28.:11:29.

successful applications for two`year`old funding. It currently

:11:30.:11:32.

has around 370 vacancies across the city. And, following a list provided

:11:33.:11:35.

by the Department for Work `nd Pensions, the council has written to

:11:36.:11:39.

406 families who may be eligible but are still yet to apply.

:11:40.:11:47.

It's getting children into ` proper playing environment where they can

:11:48.:11:51.

learn a whole mass of skills. If a child is on their own at hole, they

:11:52.:11:55.

simply won't have a chance to do that and it's a terrible sh`me. And

:11:56.:11:58.

we're offering these places free, please come forward.

:11:59.:12:06.

The problem is that some parents aren't even aware of the benefit,

:12:07.:12:09.

like this woman. She has just started bringing her daughtdr to

:12:10.:12:12.

nursery and is now wondering whether she would qualify. I didn't actually

:12:13.:12:15.

know that 2`year`old funding existed. That's why I've not looked

:12:16.:12:20.

into it at all. I'm wondering whether we would have been dntitled

:12:21.:12:27.

to it. I don't know anything about it so I will have to go and

:12:28.:12:29.

research. Parenting organisations say they

:12:30.:12:32.

welcome free places for 2`ydar`olds and would like to see more childcare

:12:33.:12:35.

support. Hull City Council hs urging parents to get in touch.

:12:36.:12:51.

You might also have a view on this story and the free nursery places,

:12:52.:12:54.

maybe you're a parent, do you think two is too young to send chhldren to

:12:55.:12:56.

nursery? 1000 days until whole becomds city

:12:57.:13:11.

of culture 2017, but will bd city be ready? And as Russ Wilcox breaks

:13:12.:13:23.

another record, how else has a town impressed the world?

:13:24.:13:27.

Keep your pictures coming in. Let's get the forecast now.

:13:28.:13:43.

It's very lively out there. We got thunder storm and downpours. But the

:13:44.:13:49.

good news is to date will bd the most unsettled day of the wdek

:13:50.:13:52.

because tomorrow looks fine with some sunshine. Thresher will remain

:13:53.:13:58.

high throughout the week and probably into next weekend. That

:13:59.:14:10.

means many part will... This has given some very heavy rainf`ll in

:14:11.:14:15.

places. Very quickly moving off into the North Sea. Overnight, a fresher

:14:16.:14:21.

feel. The westerly wind will bring fresh air with a scattering of

:14:22.:14:25.

showers. By the end of the night, those showers should be out of the

:14:26.:14:33.

way. Cooler than of late. The sun will rise at about 20 past six. One

:14:34.:14:45.

or two showers are possible in the morning, otherwise it is brhght and

:14:46.:14:50.

breezy with variable amounts of cloud and sunny spells. A fdw

:14:51.:14:53.

showers trying to get into Lincolnshire. But most of us will

:14:54.:14:59.

enjoy a fine, right and bredzy day. Temperatures a few degrees down on

:15:00.:15:09.

today with highs of 11 Celshus. Further ahead, Wednesday looks a

:15:10.:15:14.

fine, dry day with some sunshine. Thursday mostly fine with a few

:15:15.:15:17.

spots of rain on Thursday nhght Friday and next weekend look dry.

:15:18.:15:26.

The man who ran Delhi` Londonderry city of culture see Hull has an

:15:27.:15:49.

advantage. `` Derry/Londonddrry We have been looking at how thd city

:15:50.:15:58.

has been getting ready for 2017 City of Culture status brought more

:15:59.:16:01.

than a million visitors and an estimated ?25 million to

:16:02.:16:03.

Derry/Londonderry. Plans ard being made so it can do the same for Hull.

:16:04.:16:07.

Just four months since Hull was named City of Culture, almost half

:16:08.:16:11.

of the ?18 million needed h`s been promised to the city. And that's

:16:12.:16:14.

before they even begin speaking to private sponsors. Fundraising is

:16:15.:16:17.

going really well. It's early days, we have three years to put together

:16:18.:16:21.

the budget. But now that Hull has won, we see ?7 million of ilmediate

:16:22.:16:24.

coverage and sponsors beating a path to our door. This has reallx hit the

:16:25.:16:29.

national psyche. Plans for the BAFTAs or the Brits to

:16:30.:16:33.

come here have been ruled ott because of Hull's lack of c`pacity.

:16:34.:16:36.

But it's hoped Hull could follow Derry/Londonderry's lead and host

:16:37.:16:38.

Radio One's Big Weekend mushc festival and the country's

:16:39.:16:41.

best`known art competition, the Turner Prize. They want to `ttract

:16:42.:16:45.

show stopping displays like this one in Sydney by Brian Eno. But before

:16:46.:16:49.

they book artists, the team are making sure they have the

:16:50.:16:54.

infrastructure to deliver 2017. It is a marathon. It's not ` sprint.

:16:55.:17:01.

It's really important that we get all those discussions and those

:17:02.:17:04.

dialogues right now so that we can plan for what is going to bd an

:17:05.:17:08.

amazing year for the city. @nd also that we create legacy. That is

:17:09.:17:10.

critical. So what else is in the pipeline By

:17:11.:17:13.

summer, a chairperson and an artistic director will be appointed

:17:14.:17:16.

and making decisions about what the city will host. Plans are bding

:17:17.:17:22.

drawn up to make it easier to move between Hull's cultural highlights

:17:23.:17:25.

and create artistic gateways to the city. And next year, an offhcial

:17:26.:17:28.

campaign begins to recruit 4,00 volunteers, similar to the

:17:29.:17:31.

gamesmakers that helped makd London's Olympics a success. And on

:17:32.:17:37.

June the 28th, there'll be ` big public party to thank peopld in Hull

:17:38.:17:40.

for the part they played in winning the bid.

:17:41.:18:00.

Elia, I spoke to the director of Derry/Londonderry. Its liturgy where

:18:01.:18:08.

it should be `` is the city would it should be? Yes, work

:18:09.:18:15.

behind`the`scenes has been going on. The team will be making things

:18:16.:18:22.

prepared for releases about the programme. Do people realisd how big

:18:23.:18:29.

this could be? There are cynics everywhere you go in the world. The

:18:30.:18:37.

situation turned around when people began to see the programme `nd the

:18:38.:18:40.

opportunities and the busindss opportunities. That happened made

:18:41.:18:55.

each year `` mid`year. It c`me with recognition in the lonely planet

:18:56.:19:01.

guide. You think it is a little things that matter and you worked

:19:02.:19:04.

with the taxi drivers. What should they do here? They need to consider

:19:05.:19:09.

what the business is for thdm going forward. A great taxi experhence is

:19:10.:19:18.

likely to sell the city. If their appearance being polite? To be

:19:19.:19:24.

knowledgeable and proud of the city because everybody in this chty,

:19:25.:19:27.

250,000 people, are ambassadors for this city going forward. Visitors

:19:28.:19:33.

will come from around the world Why should ordinarily peopld, who

:19:34.:19:41.

might not have a job, why should they be excited about this? They

:19:42.:19:46.

should be proud about their city. This city has one and not m`ny other

:19:47.:19:53.

people have done. The probldm going forward is people may not sde the

:19:54.:19:57.

opportunity at this moment hn time. If you have not got a job, perhaps

:19:58.:20:02.

you will get a job out of chty of culture. Did it bring jobs to

:20:03.:20:12.

Derry? Yes, it did. But it can't be about one year, it has to bd a

:20:13.:20:19.

sustained effort. Thank you. Thanks to everybody who got in touch

:20:20.:20:33.

about a shortage of prescription drugs.

:20:34.:20:42.

Roy in Cleethorpes messaged me to say... I had at heart transplant 15

:20:43.:20:48.

years ago and one of the drtgs I am on is proving difficult to get hold

:20:49.:20:53.

of. I have to order it two weeks before I needed and the pharmacy as

:20:54.:20:57.

to ring the supplier to get hold of it because it is not being stalked.

:20:58.:21:02.

It is adding stress to a difficult situation.

:21:03.:21:09.

Plenty of other similar expdriences as well.

:21:10.:21:50.

One of Hull City's longest serving players, Andy Davidson, has died. He

:21:51.:21:55.

played 579 times for The Tigers during the '50s and '60s before

:21:56.:21:58.

joining the coaching staff during a career at the club lasting 33 years.

:21:59.:22:02.

There will be a minute's silence in his memory ahead of City's home game

:22:03.:22:08.

against Arsenal later this lonth. On the pitch, the Tigers have

:22:09.:22:19.

virtually secured their place in the Premier League for another xear

:22:20.:22:25.

They are now nine points cldar of the relegation zone. I just can t

:22:26.:22:34.

see that the teams below us will get enough. We are hopeful to kdep going

:22:35.:22:42.

to the end. Hull Kingston Rovers went out of the Challenge Ctp at the

:22:43.:22:44.

fourth round stage yesterdax. The Robins led at half time, but

:22:45.:22:47.

Warrington proved to strong for them and ran out 28 to 24 winners. Both

:22:48.:22:51.

Hull clubs are now out of the competition.

:22:52.:22:53.

And plenty from this weekend's rugby league will be on the Super League

:22:54.:22:57.

Show. That's on BBC One this evening, just before midnight.

:22:58.:23:08.

This weekend, this man becale a world record`holder. Russ Whlcox,

:23:09.:23:20.

his Scunthorpe side has rem`ined unbeaten for 25 games.

:23:21.:23:31.

Scunthorpe, a town of grittx steel like and steel`making deterlination.

:23:32.:23:35.

A town that gave birth to ldgendary actresses like Joan Plowright and

:23:36.:23:38.

the most successful British golfer of his generation Tony Jacklin. It

:23:39.:23:49.

all started here. With a golf ball in front of me and just wanting to

:23:50.:23:54.

be as good at golf as I could possibly be. And now the world's

:23:55.:23:57.

spotlight is shining on Scunthorpe again.

:23:58.:24:01.

We're talking about this man, manager Russ Wilcox. On Sattrday, he

:24:02.:24:07.

did it again. After an away win against Torquay. Now 25 unbdaten

:24:08.:24:12.

games in a row, extending hhs new world record. That's the kexword,

:24:13.:24:21.

momentum. Having a great st`rt breeds confidence, belief,

:24:22.:24:29.

togetherness. They won from this penalty. It was a bit cheekx, but

:24:30.:24:33.

went past the keeper into the back of the net. Torquay had thehr own

:24:34.:24:36.

chance, but couldn't get back Sam Slocombe. An historic run continues.

:24:37.:24:42.

We've never known them win `s many as they have this year. Thex've done

:24:43.:24:49.

really well. Usually they start well and go down. Any club that can make

:24:50.:24:54.

a record, no matter what it is, it's got to be good for the town. The

:24:55.:24:58.

fact that Scunthorpe are dohng well has lifted the town. Look at those

:24:59.:25:04.

two. It's lifted the spirits. This is a town well prepared to keep

:25:05.:25:10.

enjoying the moment. That's fantastic. Let's havd a recap

:25:11.:25:19.

of the main national and regional headlines.

:25:20.:25:23.
