Keirin Grimsby, Humberside Police is urging people to say no to beggars.

:01:12.:01:15.

They say it is not about punishing the needy, but making sure help gets

:01:16.:01:21.

to those who need it. It is funding a habit. Most of them have drug or

:01:22.:01:29.

alcohol habits. We know one chap who got hundreds ?60 per day in coins.

:01:30.:01:37.

It is not unheard of. Officers have come across a woman

some extra money to get somdwhere to some extra money to get somewhere to

live. There are alternatives for the

:02:26.:02:28.

homeless to make a legitimate income. One is selling happiness and

:02:29.:02:35.

the other is selling misery. I see myself as an entertainer. I have

:02:36.:02:39.

never asked anyone for monex. The message is that if you want to

:02:40.:02:43.

help those trapped in poverty, instead of getting hand`outs, donate

to charities. Businesses sax that to charities. Businesses sax that

But Estuary TV's management say they're not concerned, and will

In a statement, the BBC Trust said: Estuary TV is one of 19 of the first

phase of local TV stations. Phase two includes 13 more,

:05:28.:05:30.

including York and Scarborotgh. But could those now be at risk?

:05:31.:05:33.

I don't think the phase two stations are risk, although in the

:05:34.:05:36.

short`term, there may well be some delay while the BBC Trust and the

:05:37.:05:40.

auditors work out what is going on at Comux. I've no reason to believe

:05:41.:05:48.

there is anything untoward going on at Comux, but that's bound to induce

just been things outside of Grimsby. Estuary has a 12 year licence to

Now the weather. Good evening. Today turned out to be
