deep water`filled ditch are asking for barriers along hundreds of miles

Lincolnshire. But despite m`ny incidents, the authorities say it's

:00:23.:00:25.

not practical to install barriers on all roads which are next to water.

Gemma Dawson reports. Peter and Stella's son James never

:00:37.:00:37.

celebrated his next birthday. They celebrated his next birthday. They

:00:38.:00:41.

found his car upside down in a ditch, near to their home, six

months ago. It was awful, it is still awful, the pain is unbearable.

There are so many unguarded areas, particularly where there are

There are so many unguarded areas, particularly where there ard turns

in the road, with no lighting. There should really be barriers. For one

:01:04.:01:09.

person to die is bad enough so we need to make sure this never happens

:01:10.:01:13.

again. So nobody goes through what my family has been through. But in

:01:14.:01:17.

the last two weeks, three cars have ended up in ditches ` in separate

:01:18.:01:20.

incidents ` across Lincolnshire. Figures from the Lincolnshire Road

:01:21.:01:23.

Safety Partnership show that over the last five years, 30 cars have

:01:24.:01:26.

been found in water`filled ditches in the county. Five of those cases

:01:27.:01:29.

in the county. Five of thosd cases resulted in serious injuries and in

:01:30.:01:32.

three cases, either the driver or a passenger died. We have had a number

:01:33.:01:40.

of collisions and we have carried out extensive work on those areas.

:01:41.:01:50.

And sometimes, safety fences. In reality, it is not always practical.

:01:51.:01:54.

I first met Andy last November, after he'd helped another motorist

:01:55.:01:57.

who'd ended`up in the ditch opposite his house near Boston. They have

:01:58.:02:08.

added markers all the way along round the bends, and chevrons. Five

:02:09.:02:12.

months on, he was happy to show me the signs and markers that

:02:13.:02:14.

Lincolnshire County Council has just installed here. To be fair to the

:02:15.:02:18.

council, I was critical, it took a while, but they have done a good

:02:19.:02:20.

job. And hopefully it will lake a job. And hopefully it will make a

:02:21.:02:23.

difference. But James' parents would like to see more signs and barriers

:02:24.:02:27.

near ditches to prevent further deaths. What are the authorities

deaths. What are the authorhties saying about putting crash barriers

:02:30.:02:35.

beside ditches? James' dad told me he believes James would still be

:02:36.:02:36.

alive if there had been a barrier alive if there had been a b`rrier

:02:37.:02:42.

next to the ditch where he drowned. In some places there are barriers.

:02:43.:02:43.

with the Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership, to decide where to

they do that based on the amount of traffic using the road, along with

:03:03.:03:04.

the number and severity of crashes that take place there. So it's very

:03:05.:03:07.

unlikely that James' parents will get their wish ` to see barriers

Scunthorpe United have been showing off plans for a new 12,000 seat

:05:40.:05:42.

stadium at a meeting in the town tonight. It will replace Glanford

:05:43.:05:45.

Park, which opened in 1988. Simon Clark was the meeting.

:05:46.:05:52.

Here at Scunthorpe United's Glanford Park executive suite, the chairman

:05:53.:05:55.

has held court for more than one hour, explaining his plans to move

:05:56.:05:58.

to a new stadium. He wouldn't be specific on where the location

the new stadium would be, but he did put some meat on the bones. It will

cost ?80 million, paid for over ten years. It will house 12,000 fans. We

know we are on a tight schedule We know we are on a tight schedule We

:06:12.:06:16.

want to get this done as quickly as we can so we don't spend another

:06:17.:06:19.

year in limbo. We will work as fast as we can and we'll hopefully get it

:06:20.:06:24.

done. As you can see over my shoulder, fans are poring over the

:06:25.:06:27.

artist's impressions, getting a feel for the new place and one or two are

:06:28.:06:31.

telling me they are picking their seats for the future.

:06:32.:06:35.

That's all from the late team. Look North is back tomorrow just after

:07:21.:07:22.

Bye is not looking too bad. That's

:07:23.:07:38.

weather front. It is never too early to think about

:07:39.:07:42.

next weekend and I will be doing that in a couple of minutes. But we

:07:43.:07:47.

have a sizeable chunk of this week's whether to go first. There

:07:48.:07:53.

are more showers, but there will be spells of warm sunshine around as

:07:54.:07:57.

well, so there will be no frost at night. Bands of showers across the

:07:58.:08:04.

western side of the UK and Scotland's passing through

:08:05.:08:08.

overnight. Another heavy burst coming into the south-west later on

:08:09.:08:15.

in the night. This rain band slowly comes in from the South West and

:08:16.:08:19.

this is how Wednesday starts at eight o'clock in the morning. It

:08:20.:08:24.

will turn out to be a warmer day in Scotland, but misty low cloud in the

:08:25.:08:29.

North East and that will impact on the temperature. There will be a few

:08:30.:08:35.

bright spells punching through this cloud and a sunny day

:08:36.:08:36.
