Thank you very much. Goodbye from me. And on BBC One

:00:00.:00:00.

Good evening, thank you for joining us. The headlines: The family of a

:00:07.:00:14.

woman killed by a partially sighted driver call for a change in the law.

:00:15.:00:22.

It is just horrendous that the driver has hardly got any vision at

:00:23.:00:26.

all. He was allowed on the road. Something has to be done.

:00:27.:00:31.

Also tonight, opposition to plans to build the country's tallest wind

:00:32.:00:35.

turbines in Lincolnshire. All flights are suspended at East

:00:36.:00:38.

Midlands Airport after a plane crashes on the runway.

:00:39.:00:51.

And, can football anthems inspire Hull City two FA Cup success at

:00:52.:00:54.

Wembley? And it was a cloudy start to the

:00:55.:00:59.

day. It brightened up by nicely, how is it looking tomorrow? I will have

:01:00.:01:01.

all the details. The family of a pensioner who died

:01:02.:01:15.

after being knocked down and killed on a zebra crossing by a driver who

:01:16.:01:21.

was, effectively blind in one eye, is calling for a change in the law

:01:22.:01:26.

to prevent another death. 93`year`old Audrey Noden died six

:01:27.:01:34.

weeks after being hit to you so ago. The 70 three macro 73`year`old

:01:35.:01:38.

driver of the car is starting a two`year jail sentence after

:01:39.:01:43.

admitting causing death by dangerous driving. He had a serious eye

:01:44.:01:46.

condition and had been lying about being fit to drive.

:01:47.:01:52.

This CCTV footage shows Audrey and her daughter Margaret approaching

:01:53.:01:58.

the zebra crossing. We saw this car and it was going really slowly. We

:01:59.:02:04.

assumed it was going to stop. So we started out on the crossing, and it

:02:05.:02:10.

didn't stop. A second or two later, the care were hit on this crossing

:02:11.:02:14.

by eight car driven by 73`year`old Peter Conroy. He suffers from a

:02:15.:02:21.

degenerative eye disease. He admitted causing death by dangerous

:02:22.:02:24.

driving and was jailed for two years yesterday. Earlier, Audrey's

:02:25.:02:30.

daughters told me they believe there needs to be a change in the law to

:02:31.:02:33.

prevent this happening to anyone else. It is just horrendous that a

:02:34.:02:39.

driver who has hardly got any vision at all is allowed on the road.

:02:40.:02:43.

Something has to be done, probably when you are applied to have your

:02:44.:02:49.

license renewed when you are 70, maybe you have to have an

:02:50.:02:53.

optician's note to say that you are able to drive. Warranty, all drivers

:02:54.:02:58.

over 70 has to renew their licence every three years. They are required

:02:59.:03:03.

to tell the DVLA about any condition that might affect their driving. Mr

:03:04.:03:09.

Conway should have done this. In his case it was a case of self

:03:10.:03:14.

certification that will continue his licence. He should have stopped at

:03:15.:03:18.

that point. He knew it was on the form, he knew it was a criminal

:03:19.:03:23.

offence to fall further details on that form, but he continued to do

:03:24.:03:28.

so. And this was the result. Audrey's family wanted this footage

:03:29.:03:32.

to be released to act as a warning to other drivers to prevent anyone

:03:33.:03:36.

else experiencing the pain they have suffered. I had to go to my

:03:37.:03:43.

mother's funeral in a wheelchair, and it was horrible. I just wanted

:03:44.:03:48.

to walk again. I have not coped with my emotions at all. Audrey's

:03:49.:03:53.

daughters hope motorists will now think seriously about whether they

:03:54.:03:58.

are safe to drive. In a moment, there is opposition to

:03:59.:04:05.

plans to build the country's tallest wind turbines in Lincolnshire.

:04:06.:04:12.

A two`year`old is recovering in hospital in Hull after being hit by

:04:13.:04:17.

a car. The incident happened on Sculcoates Lane about a mile from

:04:18.:04:20.

the city centre, just before 5pm yesterday afternoon.

:04:21.:04:28.

24 hours later, do we know what happened? All that remains to be

:04:29.:04:35.

seen that an incident happened here is the yellow police markings here

:04:36.:04:39.

on the road, but we do note that it was he on Sculcoates Lane that a

:04:40.:04:43.

two`year`old girl ran out into the road and was hit by a car. I

:04:44.:04:47.

understand that she did live on the estate behind me, and eyewitnesses

:04:48.:04:52.

have described to me how she ran out into the road before she was hit.

:04:53.:04:56.

Her family were here and close by at the time, and luckily, there was a

:04:57.:05:01.

PC as Owen the neighbourhood he was one of the first at the scene. It

:05:02.:05:05.

was 852`year`old woman driving a blue Mercedes who hit girl, and she

:05:06.:05:10.

was understandably shaken `` a 52`year`old woman. There was a lot

:05:11.:05:16.

of screaming. The parents were around. There was no screeching of

:05:17.:05:20.

tyres. She apparently run out in the road and got knocked down by a car.

:05:21.:05:26.

The driver was in shock. She could not say anything. I have been

:05:27.:05:31.

speaking to many who live nearby. Although they are saddened by this

:05:32.:05:34.

news, they are not entirely surprised that it has happened on a

:05:35.:05:39.

road like this. There is a 30 mph speed limit, but as you can see,

:05:40.:05:43.

this electronic sign behind me, the only thing that is registering

:05:44.:05:48.

speed, and the only speed control in this area, and many residents are

:05:49.:05:52.

calling for a reduction in that speed limit to 20 mph. At about 5pm

:05:53.:05:56.

you have got traffic all the way down here. You have got loads of

:05:57.:06:05.

kids down here from the estate. It is a bad road. My daughter has had a

:06:06.:06:13.

near miss on it. The latest from Humberside Police this evening, that

:06:14.:06:19.

this little girl is in a comfortable condition in hospital, but we do

:06:20.:06:23.

know that she has been treated for fractures to the body and bad

:06:24.:06:27.

grazing to her face. Now, more than 24 hours since this incident

:06:28.:06:32.

happened, and Elise are keen to speak to anyone who might have seen

:06:33.:06:36.

what happened here. `` police are keen.

:06:37.:06:43.

More stories now from around our area.

:06:44.:06:48.

A man from Grimsby who committed a number of sex offences over a 16

:06:49.:06:51.

year period has been handed a five`year jail term. 53`year`old

:06:52.:06:59.

Stephen Charlotte, who was first arrested in 2012, was today

:07:00.:07:02.

convicted by a jury at Grimsby Crown Court.

:07:03.:07:06.

Humberside Fire and Rescue Service has put forward plans to build a

:07:07.:07:11.

training centre to recreate flooding. The ?3 million site could

:07:12.:07:16.

be told in Grimsby. It would be the first of its kind and include a

:07:17.:07:20.

water tank, enough to submerge vehicles. Last December, more than

:07:21.:07:26.

1000 homes and businesses along the River Humber were affected by a

:07:27.:07:30.

tidal surge. It is not a question of if these events will happen in the

:07:31.:07:35.

future, it is when. We need to be as prepared as we can be. Humberside

:07:36.:07:39.

suffers from all the different types of flooding, including tidal surges.

:07:40.:07:45.

We need to make sure we are the best prepared in the country. A decision

:07:46.:07:49.

is expected this evening on plans for nearly 1500 homes in Sleaford. A

:07:50.:07:53.

developer and would include a primary school, health centre and

:07:54.:07:58.

shops. The council is recommending the plans go ahead, despite some

:07:59.:08:01.

concerns about an increase in traffic to the area.

:08:02.:08:10.

Still ahead toll on ``: Dozens of flights are suspended from East

:08:11.:08:13.

Midlands Airport after a plane's landing gear failed.

:08:14.:08:20.

And, the soundtrack to success. The Hull city fans hoping to send their

:08:21.:08:24.

side to victory in the FA Cup final. We want all the fans to get involved

:08:25.:08:29.

more all singing and chanting at Wembley. They can certainly make a

:08:30.:08:43.

difference. Tonight's picture is a real stunner.

:08:44.:08:47.

If you have got a picture you are proud of, do send it in.

:08:48.:08:52.

Electronically is best for us these days because we are high`tech!

:08:53.:08:55.

Now, the weather. We started the day of on a cloudy

:08:56.:09:08.

note, but it did brighten up. It will be a repeat performance through

:09:09.:09:12.

tomorrow. It was a fairly cloudy start, particularly across the hills

:09:13.:09:22.

and along the coast. But it did brighten up and we got some good

:09:23.:09:27.

spells of sunshine, and it did feel quite pleasant with the breeze

:09:28.:09:29.

remaining quite light. This evening it will stay mostly dry, but again,

:09:30.:09:32.

missed and fog rolling in once again. The breeze will remain light

:09:33.:09:34.

overnight, temperatures not much lower than seven or eight degrees.

:09:35.:09:40.

Tomorrow morning, the sun will rise at 5:29am. It will be a pretty

:09:41.:09:50.

similar start to tomorrow morning. Cloudy, misty and murky with sea fog

:09:51.:09:55.

and hill fog, and there could be the odd isolated shower as we head

:09:56.:09:59.

through the morning. It will gradually brighten up, but it will

:10:00.:10:04.

be a slow process. Good spells of sunshine later in the day. For most

:10:05.:10:09.

it should remain dry with just the odd shower possible. Coolest on the

:10:10.:10:14.

A succession of whether France on reach 16 `` temperatures.

:10:15.:10:26.

A succession of whether France on Thursday, meaning it will be quite

:10:27.:10:33.

unsettled. `` weather fronts. Friday will be a fairly decent day with

:10:34.:10:37.

plenty of sunshine, but it will be quite chilly. Unsettled through

:10:38.:10:43.

Thursday with showers and longer spells of rain. Brightening up with

:10:44.:10:46.

good spells of sunshine, but getting colder.

:10:47.:10:53.

An energy company that wants to build a wind farm with some of the

:10:54.:10:59.

tallest wind turbines in the country has been setting out its plans this

:11:00.:11:54.

Lincoln Cathedral is 272 foot tall. A wind farm development in North

:11:55.:11:56.

Yorkshire has national importance, which means it

:11:57.:13:08.

is Westminster that ultimately decides whether it will go ahead,

:13:09.:13:12.

rather than the local District Council that normally rules on

:13:13.:13:15.

planning applications. Developers need a presentation today. They say

:13:16.:13:25.

they expect to submit a formal planning application by the end of

:13:26.:13:33.

next year. Join me now is Matt Smith from

:13:34.:13:37.

renewables UK, the organisation that presents the renewables industry. Up

:13:38.:13:46.

to 22 turbines, should local people welcome this wind farm? They should

:13:47.:13:52.

because wind energy is helping us to have an affordable source of power.

:13:53.:13:57.

What the developers are doing is absolutely right, coming in early,

:13:58.:14:01.

talking to the community, setting out its plans and listening to what

:14:02.:14:04.

people say, and the planning process will test that scheme and make sure

:14:05.:14:08.

it is the right scheme for this location. What do you say to locals

:14:09.:14:13.

who don't want this wind farm? It is best that they look at the proposals

:14:14.:14:18.

that are on the table and engage with what is happening at the

:14:19.:14:23.

moment. Equally, the need to realise that wind is supported, so there is

:14:24.:14:28.

a poll out today from the government showing that 70% of the population

:14:29.:14:33.

support wind. Yes, you said today that public support for onshore wind

:14:34.:14:38.

is that record levels. That is a poll that the government released

:14:39.:14:44.

today. The government needs to take stock. Last week, the energy

:14:45.:14:48.

minister said there was a lack of support for onshore wind, yet their

:14:49.:14:51.

own data says there is. You say that, but the wind farm bubble has

:14:52.:14:58.

burst, hasn't it? The Prime Minister said last week that financial

:14:59.:15:01.

incentives should not be in place any longer than necessary. I think

:15:02.:15:07.

12% of the population say they oppose onshore wind. People see it

:15:08.:15:13.

as a workable, positive technology. People back onshore wind ahead of

:15:14.:15:17.

other... At Lincolnshire has already got 22 wind farms. It is one of the

:15:18.:15:22.

three top areas in the UK for wind farms. Hasn't it done is fair

:15:23.:15:26.

share? The planning decision has to look at humour at its capacity. But

:15:27.:15:31.

companies will come in, set out their plans, and they are doing a

:15:32.:15:36.

lot of work to engage and support the local supply chain. What do you

:15:37.:15:41.

say to those watching tonight who don't want them? Look at the plans,

:15:42.:15:48.

engage, but be aware that wind is a big part of our energy for the

:15:49.:15:53.

future. Thank you for joining us. We would

:15:54.:15:57.

be keen to hear your views on this one. Do get in touch.

:15:58.:16:19.

We had a big response to Humberside Police cracking down on begging.

:16:20.:16:27.

Charities say that 200 people in the area have no permanent address, but

:16:28.:16:31.

police say most people who are begging are spending the money to

:16:32.:16:34.

fund drink or drug habits. They say some beggars make as much as ?400 a

:16:35.:16:40.

week. We heard yesterday that somebody and ?160 in half a day.

:16:41.:16:46.

Thank you to all your comments. " I struggle to believe that beggars

:16:47.:16:49.

should not begin from money is quite.

:16:50.:17:11.

Thank you for all your comments. It is hoped that flights at East

:17:12.:17:19.

Midlands Airport will resume in the next few hours. They have been

:17:20.:17:23.

suspended all day after a cargo plane lost part of its undercarriage

:17:24.:17:28.

and became stranded on the runway in the early hours of this morning.

:17:29.:17:32.

Dozens of flights have been cancelled, and thousands of

:17:33.:17:36.

passengers have been affected by the incident.

:17:37.:17:40.

Mike O'Sullivan reports. Sheared off of this dramatic image posted on

:17:41.:17:44.

Twitter shows the landing gear that parted from the stricken cargo

:17:45.:17:50.

plane. The freighter plane lay stranded on the runway at East

:17:51.:17:53.

Midlands Airport after landing from Paris at around 2:30am. The owners

:17:54.:17:58.

of the plane say it is understood that part of the landing gear on the

:17:59.:18:04.

left`hand side failed after it slowed down to exit the runway. It

:18:05.:18:07.

has meant huge disruption for passengers. Buses laid on to other

:18:08.:18:13.

airports by operators Thomson and Jet2. Initially we thought we were

:18:14.:18:18.

leaving earlier than this. We thought we would be leaving at 7am.

:18:19.:18:24.

But that has been a delay, there is a problem with the coach getting us

:18:25.:18:29.

there. We will have to wait and see what happens. The staff have been

:18:30.:18:33.

very informative. We have been told that we have now got to get a gusty

:18:34.:18:39.

Manchester. We are flying out of there instead. But, for Ryanair

:18:40.:18:45.

passengers, a different story. No buses for them. They have two book

:18:46.:18:49.

again, or apply for a refund on mine. We got a text about him it's

:18:50.:18:54.

before we got here to say it was cancelled. We were nearly here. We

:18:55.:18:59.

have been in a queue for nearly three hours. They have not told us

:19:00.:19:03.

anything. We don't know if we are getting a flight today. Late this

:19:04.:19:08.

afternoon, lifting gear was brought in to move the cargo plane, which

:19:09.:19:12.

was carrying parcels, and operated by an Irish company. Air accident

:19:13.:19:17.

investigators have started an inquiry.

:19:18.:19:23.

Our reporter is at East Midlands Airport. What have officials said?

:19:24.:19:33.

Tonight, there is hope that the lifting operation is well underway

:19:34.:19:35.

and that flights could resume here at about 8:30pm. As you say, people

:19:36.:19:40.

are queueing up behind B. A flight to Alicante these people now

:19:41.:19:45.

checking in. The owners of the cargo plane has said it is a well

:19:46.:19:51.

maintained aircraft and have apologised for the inconvenience

:19:52.:19:56.

caused here today. A team of inspectors from the Care

:19:57.:19:59.

Quality Commission are checking hospitals in Lincolnshire over the

:20:00.:20:03.

next three days. It is the first time they have stood side in the

:20:04.:20:06.

county since the trust that runs hospitals was placed in special

:20:07.:20:10.

measures last summer. The trust believe they are making progress. I

:20:11.:20:16.

am anticipating that the team will be able to identify the improvements

:20:17.:20:20.

we have made since last year. But also, it is important that we get

:20:21.:20:24.

across to them that we know we have still got further improvements to

:20:25.:20:28.

make and we understand what those improvements are.

:20:29.:20:32.

Plans to close 30 libraries in Lincolnshire will be considered by

:20:33.:20:35.

the High Court in London in July. The County Council says it needs to

:20:36.:20:40.

save more than ?2 million, so it is looking for volunteers to run the

:20:41.:20:43.

service. In speed town loan striker Colin

:20:44.:20:47.

Jennings has been ruled out of bed semifinal matches against Gateshead

:20:48.:20:56.

due to injury. If they get through to the final at Wembley, they will

:20:57.:21:00.

be just one match away from a return to the football league. It is a good

:21:01.:21:06.

mood in the camp, quite relaxed, but we are still a couple of days away

:21:07.:21:10.

from the game. Each hour that passes by, nerves will start to kick in. As

:21:11.:21:16.

long as we use that nervous energy well, there is nothing wrong with

:21:17.:21:18.

that. With less than three weeks to go

:21:19.:21:23.

until Hull City face Arsenal, an anthem is being recorded to spur on

:21:24.:21:27.

fans and players. It is being billed as a fun song that all the fans can

:21:28.:21:30.

sing along to. An FA Cup final anthem for the

:21:31.:21:51.

Tigers. Sector to the Toy Dolls version of Chamakh Nellie the

:21:52.:22:01.

Elephant. It is a cheesy song. Nellie the elephant is the perfect

:22:02.:22:08.

song for what we are doing. It is quite a simple song, simple lyrics,

:22:09.:22:15.

and in a matter of two or three lessons, hopefully everyone will be

:22:16.:22:21.

chanting it on the terraces. Supporting the band, a group of

:22:22.:22:30.

loyal fans. I think it is nice to do it for this occasion. I think the

:22:31.:22:34.

song is all right, and these people are working hard for it. It has got

:22:35.:22:39.

a catchy tune. Hopefully it will be a good day and they will be singing

:22:40.:22:48.

it when they win the FA Cup. # Tigers are roaring, destiny is

:22:49.:23:01.

calling... # football anthems may lift the spirits in the stands, but

:23:02.:23:08.

success has not necessarily followed on the pitch.

:23:09.:23:11.

The England team has quite a back catalogue of hits, from world in

:23:12.:23:23.

motion in 1990, to Three Lions in 1996.

:23:24.:23:29.

# Vindaloo... # All did well in the charts, but England did not bring

:23:30.:23:38.

back a trophy. Do you think this could really make

:23:39.:23:44.

a difference? Definitely, not only are we going to win the FA Cup, but

:23:45.:23:49.

I think we have got a number one hit record on our hands. The song is

:23:50.:23:52.

available to download on Friday, with all proceeds going to charity.

:23:53.:23:56.

Come May 17, those behind it hoped fans will be in fine voice, sparing

:23:57.:24:04.

the Tigers on to FA Cup glory. `` sparing.

:24:05.:24:16.

Every cup of the main headlines: The teacher stabbed to death in Leeds

:24:17.:24:27.

was due to retire. Police are questioning the 15`year`old boy

:24:28.:24:31.

accused of killing her. A family call for a change in the

:24:32.:24:34.

law after their mother was killed by a partially sighted driver.

:24:35.:24:45.

A big response after we talked about the plans for a wind farm. Chris

:24:46.:24:56.

says" people in Lincolnshire are against the modern, clean way to

:24:57.:25:01.

generate electricity. Surely not. If it was a nuclear reactor we would

:25:02.:25:07.

have something to worry about". Jean says, " people were prepared to

:25:08.:25:12.

halve the amount of electricity used, then maybe they would have a

:25:13.:25:18.

case". Tom says he is sick of people complaining about wind farms,

:25:19.:25:21.

scenery is not in short supply and we need renewable energy.

:25:22.:25:24.

Thank you for watching. Good night.
