tomorrow. That's it.

:00:00.:00:07.

Good evening. The Environment Agency has begun pumping hundreds of

:00:08.:00:11.

thousands of tonnes of sand onto Lincolnshire's beaches to help shore

:00:12.:00:14.

up flood defences along the coast, work it says is vital to help

:00:15.:00:17.

protect communities. Although beaches are replenished annually,

:00:18.:00:20.

this year more sand is needed after December's tidal surge which

:00:21.:00:23.

stripped a large quantity from the county's coastline. Jake Zuckerman

:00:24.:00:30.

reports. For 20 years now, Lincolnshire's

:00:31.:00:33.

beaches have undergone annual repair and restoration. Sand dredged from

:00:34.:00:37.

the sea bed is pumped onshore to replace that which the sea has

:00:38.:00:42.

washed away. Without the scheme, the beach here would be reduced to bare

:00:43.:00:46.

clay. As well as making the beaches more attractive for visitors, the

:00:47.:00:49.

sand helps protect sea defences, absorbing the power of the ocean.

:00:50.:01:00.

And on and on the beach because it reduces the wave energy so also

:01:01.:01:08.

reduces the erosion of the sea. It offers protection to 30,000

:01:09.:01:12.

properties and 30,000 hectares of agricultural land. This year the

:01:13.:01:15.

beach replenishment will cost ?8.4 million, almost ?2.5 million more

:01:16.:01:18.

than normal, thanks to damage caused by December's tidal surge. It shows

:01:19.:01:26.

just how vital the beach replenishment scheme is when it

:01:27.:01:30.

comes to protecting coastal communities from flooding and this

:01:31.:01:34.

year of the scheme will see 520,000 cubic metres of sand pumped onto

:01:35.:01:40.

their stretch of beach between Mablethorpe and Skegness. Here in

:01:41.:01:42.

Mablethorpe, businesses like this one say it's vital for tourism. We

:01:43.:01:51.

have got a fabulous beach. If we have not got the beach for people to

:01:52.:01:55.

travel on, Mablethorpe would be dead. It is the only reason for

:01:56.:01:59.

people to come here. On Lincolnshire's East coast, thousands

:02:00.:02:01.

of homes, businesses and caravans are at risk of flooding. Beach

:02:02.:02:05.

restoration is an important part of the solution. Jake Zuckerman, BBC

:02:06.:02:09.

Look North, Mablethorpe. A second person has died following a

:02:10.:02:12.

crash in Lincolnshire on Good Friday. The 16`year`old boy from

:02:13.:02:17.

Lincoln was killed when two cars and a van collided on the A1104 at

:02:18.:02:24.

Saleby Near Alford. A 70`year`old woman also died in the crash, and

:02:25.:02:27.

six people remain in hospital with serious injuries ` among them is an

:02:28.:02:38.

11`year`old boy. This was a large`scale incident and

:02:39.:02:42.

it required a coordinated approach with emergency services involving

:02:43.:02:48.

five Ian ambulances. `` Ian ambulances. It was flagged by many

:02:49.:02:52.

as a dress rehearsal for Hull City's FA Cup final match against Arsenal

:02:53.:02:55.

in May. But this afternoon's Premier League

:02:56.:02:58.

3`0 defeat has left Steve Bruce rueing missed chances and Tigers

:02:59.:03:01.

fans hoping they can turn their fortunes around next time the two

:03:02.:03:09.

sides meet. They are now hoping they can turn their fortunes around.

:03:10.:03:12.

A game touted as a preview to next month's FA Cup final, the Tigers

:03:13.:03:16.

will be hoping for better fortune come the 17th of May though. The

:03:17.:03:19.

advertising boards took centre stage causing a delay, but despite the

:03:20.:03:21.

disruption Hull started well pressing Arsenal high up the pitch

:03:22.:03:25.

and almost getting their reward with this Nikica Jelavic chance. But 31

:03:26.:03:30.

minutes into the match and the Gunners asserted their dominance,

:03:31.:03:33.

picking City's defence apart and allowing Aaron Ramsay to put them

:03:34.:03:38.

one up. Then they doubled their lead just before half time with a quick

:03:39.:03:42.

thinking strike from Lukas Podolski. That same man added more misery

:03:43.:03:46.

early in the second half picking up this rebound and slotting home to

:03:47.:03:51.

make the final score 3`0 to Arsenal. Although the Tigers fans were

:03:52.:03:54.

disappointed with the score, many were still optimistic about a win at

:03:55.:04:04.

Wembley. A cup game is a different matter altogether. It is about who

:04:05.:04:09.

wants it the most. A bit dodgy but you never know. Never lost today is

:04:10.:04:14.

going to win the FA Cup! As a rehearsal to next month's final,

:04:15.:04:17.

manager Steve Bruce will be analysing Arsenal's play in fine

:04:18.:04:20.

detail if his men are to stand a better chance of bringing home the

:04:21.:04:26.

FA Cup. Scunthorpe United could secure

:04:27.:04:29.

promotion to League One if they win at home against Oxford tomorrow. The

:04:30.:04:32.

Iron are top of League Two and if the matches at Burton, Fleetwood or

:04:33.:04:36.

Chesterfield go their way they could get one of three automatic promotion

:04:37.:04:39.

places. And you'll be able to hear commentary of Scunthorpe United's

:04:40.:04:42.

crucial match against Oxford on BBC Radio Humberside's FM frequency

:04:43.:04:46.

tomorrow. The build up starts at 1.30 while on digital and the web it

Not been so bad weather wise. Good evening. Through this evening

got some rain particularly in western areas. Quite cloudy soil

:05:18.:05:23.

temperatures around about 10 Celsius or quite mild. Easter Monday will be

:05:24.:05:32.

breezy. We should see it brightening up what some sunny spells and in the

:05:33.:05:39.

afternoon the UNESCO some showers. `` the risk of some showers. Should

get up to 16 Celsius in the sunshine and when they will start to ease

their own. The desk of showers more persistent. That's all for now. I'm

:05:52.:05:56.

back with a round up of the day's news at quarter past ten tonight,

:05:57.:06:00.

hope you can join me then. Bye for now.

:06:01.:06:07.

Hello. Well, it was another lovely sunny day across the north of the

:06:08.:06:14.

UK. What a difference over the south. The rain set in for the

:06:15.:06:16.

course of the afternoon. There's more of that to come. It has been

:06:17.:06:20.

getting heavy across southern England. A narrow band for London,

for the south Midlands, to south Wales and the

:06:27.:06:27.

for the south Midlands, to south England and into Northern Ireland

:06:28.:06:39.

for a time. Otherwise it looks like staying largely dry. A mild night as

:06:40.:06:43.

well. Nothing like as cold as last night. Just the far north perhaps

:06:44.:06:48.

seeing temperatures dipping away under clearer skies. A cloudy start

:06:49.:06:52.

for many of us tomorrow. The sun will break through every now and

:06:53.:06:58.

then. Areas bordering the Irish Sea looking good as well. You will

:06:59.:07:01.

notice showers developing further south. As we go into the afternoon,
