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

:00:00.:00:09.

Opponents of a massive chicken farm are told to change their minds if

:00:10.:00:15.

they want to buy British food. If the consumer wants British food,

:00:16.:00:21.

we have the ill more of these facilities to produce it. `` we have

:00:22.:00:27.

to produce. After her mother is killed in a

:00:28.:00:30.

house fire, a daughter warns of the dangers of illegal cigarettes.

:00:31.:00:33.

A promise of sparkling waters and world`class beaches along the East

:00:34.:00:36.

Yorkshire coast. I am in Bridlington, where the first

:00:37.:00:41.

phase of a ?40 million project to improve water quality went live

:00:42.:00:43.

today. And as a talk is given on what makes

:00:44.:00:51.

the North so special, we ask people in London what they think makes a

:00:52.:00:53.

Northerner. Passionate, hard`working. Having a

:00:54.:01:01.

weird accent. They are not part of the country! Blunt, a bit stingy!

:01:02.:01:10.

The bank holiday is looking promising, join me for the details.

:01:11.:01:18.

Good evening. People opposing plans to rear hundreds`of`thousands of

:01:19.:01:22.

chickens in Lincolnshire are being told that if they want British food

:01:23.:01:26.

on their supermarket shelves, they should accept the development.

:01:27.:01:29.

Farmers are under increasing pressure to provide supermarkets

:01:30.:01:32.

with British chicken to meet the demands of shoppers who have shunned

:01:33.:01:35.

imports since the horse meat scandal. But people who live in two

:01:36.:01:41.

villages near Sleaford fear they will be plagued by smells and extra

:01:42.:01:45.

traffic if a chicken farm is built near them. Jill Archbold reports.

:01:46.:01:51.

Their smells and sounds are familiar in Lincolnshire. And in the

:01:52.:01:56.

supermarkets, we are buying more chicken than any other meat. As

:01:57.:02:00.

demand for British chicken grows, so do plans to farm them. On this land

:02:01.:02:05.

near Sleaford, developers want to build a facility to farm thousands

:02:06.:02:08.

and turn their waste into biogas, many living locally have objected.

:02:09.:02:17.

We are not necessarily against chicken farms, we live in the

:02:18.:02:23.

country, but we are against such a large one so close to local

:02:24.:02:26.

facilities. HGVs would enter the site on an

:02:27.:02:29.

existing farm track, which crosses a popular cycle route between two

:02:30.:02:34.

villages. I would not like my children to be passing the HGVs if

:02:35.:02:39.

they had to. I am not looking forward to those HGVs down that

:02:40.:02:43.

path. For those who farm nearby, a chance

:02:44.:02:48.

to become part of a supply chain. There is an undersupply of chicken

:02:49.:02:53.

in this country and if the consumer wants British reduced food, we have

:02:54.:02:57.

to build more of these facilities to produce it.

:02:58.:03:05.

It is estimated we eat 2.2 million chickens a day, and 70% of chicken

:03:06.:03:09.

bought is reared in the UK. In 2001, the number of chickens reared for

:03:10.:03:12.

slaughter was 780 million, this figure rose to nearly 875 million in

:03:13.:03:16.

2012. Lincolnshire poultry farmers like David Panton are one of many

:03:17.:03:18.

who already supply leading retailers.

:03:19.:03:27.

We are producing one tonne of meat every 20 minutes, we are doing this

:03:28.:03:32.

24 hours a day, seven days a week, 52 weeks a year. A substantial

:03:33.:03:39.

amount for the English market. Hundreds of objections have been

:03:40.:03:42.

made to North Kesteven District Council, who say the plans are being

:03:43.:03:48.

considered. We are asking for your thoughts on

:03:49.:03:51.

this. I am joined by Donna Jarvis, from Holdingham, who is opposed to

:03:52.:03:55.

the chicken farm, and Gary Ford, the National Farmers' Union's Poultry

:03:56.:03:58.

Advisor. Briefly, why don't you want this?

:03:59.:04:04.

We are against the chicken unit and the digester implant. There are many

:04:05.:04:11.

reasons, transport, noise, smell. It is going to be in our back yards, it

:04:12.:04:16.

is surrounded by houses, there are plenty of other places they could

:04:17.:04:21.

put this. Why should residents have a chicken shed next to their homes?

:04:22.:04:25.

It would be subject to planning permission. It is driven by demand

:04:26.:04:33.

from the great writ issued public, the demand for poultry meat is

:04:34.:04:37.

increasing every year `` Great British public. Supermarkets are

:04:38.:04:42.

looking to source petition poultry and cut out reliance on imported

:04:43.:04:48.

poultry, so it is in response to increasing demand. If we do not have

:04:49.:04:53.

them, we booked ringed in chickens from abroad. `` we will be ringing

:04:54.:05:02.

in. I agree, but we do not need an enormous chicken plant in a small

:05:03.:05:07.

village. It is too big for where they are proposing to put it. The

:05:08.:05:12.

reassurance is that the applicant has to go through a number of

:05:13.:05:16.

assessments, smell, noise, transport, landscape, a plethora of

:05:17.:05:24.

assessments. Does that allay your fears? It does not. Transport issue,

:05:25.:05:32.

we are told their cup we as many as 124 lorries on certain days. ``

:05:33.:05:40.

there could be. The link to the plant crosses a cycle path. I have

:05:41.:05:49.

been reading an e`mail from Bob, he says, I am sure I am not alone in

:05:50.:05:54.

hearing about not in my backyard stories. Now no chicken farms. Do

:05:55.:05:59.

you not want any development in the county? We do, obviously, but there

:06:00.:06:04.

is a time and a place for everything. It is just not, we are

:06:05.:06:11.

not being told what is going on. I work at Saint George's Academy and

:06:12.:06:16.

we have over 2,000 students and a big part of them use the track these

:06:17.:06:22.

HGVs will be crossing. Should we be bothered if our chickens come from

:06:23.:06:29.

France or Holland? We need to make sure as far as we are able, it is

:06:30.:06:37.

British produced to a high standard. We have to be concerned about food

:06:38.:06:44.

miles and sustainability. We see political uncertainty around the

:06:45.:06:47.

world and that does impact on food prices.

:06:48.:06:51.

We will see what people think, thank you very much.

:06:52.:06:57.

We would like your thoughts on this. Does it matter to you if meat is

:06:58.:07:01.

reared in the UK, or should we accept we need to rely on imports?

:07:02.:07:05.

Do people have to accept these developments if we want British food

:07:06.:07:15.

on the shelves? Maybe you agree with Bob who e`mailed.

:07:16.:07:33.

We will have some of those before we finish.

:07:34.:07:38.

The Health and Safety Executive is investigating after a man from Hull

:07:39.:07:41.

was crushed to death between two vehicles. The 25`year`old was

:07:42.:07:44.

loading a van onto a trailer in Plymouth yesterday evening when he

:07:45.:07:47.

got trapped against the Land Rover towing it. His family has been told.

:07:48.:07:54.

Images have been released of two men police want to speak to, after a

:07:55.:07:57.

couple in their sixties were attacked at Scunthorpe Railway

:07:58.:08:00.

Station. Police say the couple tried to intervene in a fight on the

:08:01.:08:15.

platform when they were assaulted. Grimsby Town Football Club is

:08:16.:08:18.

calling on politicians to back plans for a new ?22 million stadium. The

:08:19.:08:21.

club says without council approval, it stands little chance of

:08:22.:08:24.

attracting vital outside investment. A petition has been started by fans

:08:25.:08:27.

in support of a 14,000`seat stadium at Peaks Parkway.

:08:28.:08:32.

We need the support of the councillors and to send a message to

:08:33.:08:36.

the councillors that this is what we want. If we get that, hopefully the

:08:37.:08:39.

councillors will have little choice but to follow that. A woman from

:08:40.:08:53.

Lincolnshire is urging people to be aware of the dangers of illegal

:08:54.:08:57.

cigarettes, after her mother was killed in a house fire. June Buffham

:08:58.:09:00.

died after falling asleep on her sofa while smoking. Experts say

:09:01.:09:03.

illegal cigarettes are more likely to cause a fire because they don't

:09:04.:09:06.

go out so easily. Thousands of packets have been seized in raids,

:09:07.:09:10.

but at around ?3 a packet, many smokers are tempted. Jake Zuckerman

:09:11.:09:11.

reports. Illegal cigarettes seized in

:09:12.:09:14.

Lincolnshire, the same type that caused the death of 71`year`old June

:09:15.:09:17.

Buffham, at her home in Spalding two years ago. The pensioner fell asleep

:09:18.:09:21.

in her chair while smoking. Now her daughter Julie is backing a campaign

:09:22.:09:24.

to raise awareness of the heartbreak that illegal cigarettes can cause.

:09:25.:09:34.

It has been very hard. I still get such a `` I still get flashbacks and

:09:35.:09:39.

I know my Father does. They are made for the illegal market and the

:09:40.:09:42.

cigarettes do not conform with safety standards.

:09:43.:09:46.

They do not have specialist paper. What that does is it makes them go

:09:47.:09:51.

out if they are not actively being smoke.

:09:52.:09:54.

Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue says the risk is significant. Over the

:09:55.:10:00.

last four years, virtually every single domestic fire up where

:10:01.:10:03.

somebody has died has been caused by cigarettes.

:10:04.:10:06.

By law, all cigarettes sold in the UK must be designed to go out if

:10:07.:10:09.

left unattended. But black market cigarettes don't meet those

:10:10.:10:11.

standards. This footage shows the difference

:10:12.:10:14.

between the way legal and illegal cigarettes behave.

:10:15.:10:19.

Over the last year, Trading Standards have carried out 14

:10:20.:10:24.

large`scale raids, confiscating more than 176,000 illegal cigarettes, and

:10:25.:10:28.

there are ten persecutions underweight in the county. ``

:10:29.:10:33.

prosecutions underway. For Julie, the knowledge that her

:10:34.:10:36.

mother's death could have been avoided is still painful. People

:10:37.:10:40.

need to be aware and they need to come forward. They need to tell the

:10:41.:10:43.

authorities where they are being bought. I do not want anybody else

:10:44.:10:53.

to die because of the cigarettes. Thank you for watching. Still ahead.

:10:54.:11:01.

A promise of sparkling waters and world`class beaches along the East

:11:02.:11:05.

Yorkshire coast. And what makes the North so special?

:11:06.:11:08.

We talk to the creator of Brookside and Hollyoaks to find out.

:11:09.:11:15.

Keep your photos coming in. The night's was taken by Gordon pollard.

:11:16.:11:29.

Thank you very much. `` tonight. I can remind you of a great programme

:11:30.:11:34.

on BBC One last night. About a regional weather forecaster who got

:11:35.:11:38.

sacked! Do will get sacked if you do not

:11:39.:11:42.

show better pictures! `` you will get. Excuse me, a viewer kindly sent

:11:43.:11:48.

that in. You glossed over the fact the

:11:49.:11:53.

programme was on and you did not show up!

:11:54.:11:58.

It is going to turn unsettled through tomorrow and tomorrow night.

:11:59.:12:04.

I have good news for the bank holiday. That is the chart for

:12:05.:12:10.

tomorrow with low pressure. Cooler air from the North clashing with air

:12:11.:12:15.

from the cells. The cooler I will in `` will wind and the pressure will

:12:16.:12:23.

build. We will all have a dry weekend with sunshine. A bit cool at

:12:24.:12:29.

first. It should become warm on Sunday and Monday. In the

:12:30.:12:34.

short`term, it has been nice this afternoon, 17 Celsius. A bit of

:12:35.:12:40.

cloud on the satellite picture. We could see showers breaking out. Even

:12:41.:12:55.

fonder. Hit and miss. `` thunder. Lowest temperatures of around eight,

:12:56.:12:57.

nine Celsius. A mixed picture tomorrow. Mostly

:12:58.:13:15.

cloudy, some brighter spells. Patchy rain slowly developing across parts

:13:16.:13:17.

of East Yorkshire. That will head South. There could be heavy

:13:18.:13:25.

downpours developing. Lincolnshire will steam reasonable weather ``

:13:26.:13:34.

will see. Temperatures cooling down. The best temperatures across western

:13:35.:13:36.

parts of Lincolnshire. Friday, eight damp start, sunny on Friday

:13:37.:13:43.

afternoon `` a damp start. The bank holiday is looking promising. When

:13:44.:13:49.

we did headlines, Batman said, stingy northerners, and then you

:13:50.:13:52.

appeared! `` M said. You put those titles

:13:53.:14:00.

together! I was just reading it! Of course!

:14:01.:14:11.

Seasi de resorts rely on two things more than anything else. Good

:14:12.:14:17.

beaches and clean seas. Bridlington suffered after losing its

:14:18.:14:19.

internationally recognised Blue Flag for clean water in 2012, when storms

:14:20.:14:23.

washed sewage into the harbour. The water quality has improved now and

:14:24.:14:26.

Yorkshire Water says a massive new storm tunnel, which came into

:14:27.:14:29.

service today, should prevent the waters becoming polluted again.

:14:30.:14:31.

Amanda White is in Bridlington, Amanda, is it safe to go in the sea?

:14:32.:14:35.

Be simple and is, yes. A blue flag award is not just about water but

:14:36.:14:38.

education and environment and safety. `` the simple and set is,

:14:39.:14:46.

yes. `` answer. At the North Beach, it it exceeds standards. Yorkshire

:14:47.:14:51.

Water has been improving water quality in the years ahead. On a hot

:14:52.:15:01.

sunny day, this is a magnet for visitors but the seas can overflow

:15:02.:15:06.

at Bridlington harbour, until today. This investment might not be

:15:07.:15:08.

complete, but surface water should never caused each pollution again.

:15:09.:15:16.

This is how it is going to work, this overflows and it could take

:15:17.:15:22.

more sewage out joint heavy weather. Instead, it will be siphoned off

:15:23.:15:27.

here into this tonal net work, taking it half a mile to the beach,

:15:28.:15:32.

and in the sea or to the treatment works. `` tunnel. It has taken five

:15:33.:15:37.

years to get to this stage, this is part of a network of water storage

:15:38.:15:42.

and treatment facilities. The standards are tight in terms of

:15:43.:15:48.

water quality but the new EU directive is making them the rights

:15:49.:15:53.

`` making them twice as difficult, so we need to put in the investment

:15:54.:15:58.

we are seeing to improve that bathing water quality for the

:15:59.:16:02.

future. The beaches play an important part

:16:03.:16:06.

in why people come to the Yorkshire coast and we must ensure we get the

:16:07.:16:11.

best possible results for visitors. It has not been painless.

:16:12.:16:15.

Beach`front businesses cannot wait to see it finished.

:16:16.:16:21.

It has been a very long time and very mentally challenging. We are

:16:22.:16:25.

looking forward to seeing the end of it and hopefully, orange teething

:16:26.:16:34.

problems, that is it! `` barring. It will be good for the tourism

:16:35.:16:39.

trade and businesses will profit from having a blue flag award, it is

:16:40.:16:47.

nothing but positive. The new pipeline should be installed by

:16:48.:16:50.

July. Locals will hope a picturesque and

:16:51.:16:55.

tranquil beach will be installed soon after. It will get harder to

:16:56.:17:00.

get a blue flag award. The poorest beaches will have to advise bathers

:17:01.:17:05.

not to go into the water. More crucial than ever that these works

:17:06.:17:10.

and those further down the beach do improve water quality to keep

:17:11.:17:14.

visitors coming and spending money in Bridlington. Thank you very much.

:17:15.:17:19.

Voters in East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire will join more than 500

:17:20.:17:22.

million people across the continent in this year's European elections.

:17:23.:17:25.

Voting takes place on May 22nd to decide who will sit in the European

:17:26.:17:35.

Parliament for the next five years. Our political editor, Tim Iredale,

:17:36.:17:38.

can tell us more. Tim, how important are these elections?

:17:39.:17:42.

More people will take part in these European elections than ever before.

:17:43.:17:45.

Voters in 28 countries across the continent will elect 751 members of

:17:46.:17:48.

the European Parliament Six MEPs will represent the Yorkshire and the

:17:49.:17:51.

Humber region and five MEPs will represent the East Midlands, which

:17:52.:18:00.

covers Lincolnshire. Euro MPs earn a salary worth approximately ?80,000,

:18:01.:18:06.

plus expenses. Of course, these elections are taking place at a time

:18:07.:18:10.

when Britain's future in the EU is the subject of much debate. Here are

:18:11.:18:18.

the views of some voters in Brigg. I think that we should come out of

:18:19.:18:24.

the EU. I am not saying I would vote for UKIP, but I think we should. It

:18:25.:18:31.

is the biggest hurdle! It is good, they all bringing new jobs in

:18:32.:18:38.

renewables. The money we pay in goes to the wrong countries and we should

:18:39.:18:45.

get more back. I just want us out. While the EU has its critics,

:18:46.:18:48.

supporters say the European Parliament has led the way with some

:18:49.:18:51.

significant policies. Such as: Lowering the cost of mobile phone

:18:52.:18:59.

calls when you travel abroad. Increasing the size of warnings on

:19:00.:19:01.

cigarette packets to encourage people to stop smoking. Clearer food

:19:02.:19:04.

labelling, to allow consumers to make choices about what they are

:19:05.:19:08.

eating. And action to preserve fish stocks, with

:19:09.:19:17.

One North Lincolnshire farmer told us the EU isn't perfect, but on the

:19:18.:19:19.

whole, we are better off in than out.

:19:20.:19:27.

If we are in it, we are in it, let's make the best of it. If we decide I

:19:28.:19:31.

referendum the majority want to be out, let's be out `` by referendum.

:19:32.:19:37.

But let's be clear about how we benefit or how we pay for the EU,

:19:38.:19:43.

that is important to understand. It is slow, but it does matter at the

:19:44.:19:49.

moment. So voters here will their say in the

:19:50.:19:52.

European elections on May 22nd. We creator of Brookside, Grange Hill

:19:53.:20:47.

and Hollyoaks, Phil Redmond, the Hull`born newspaper columnist Robert

:20:48.:20:49.

Crampton, and broadcaster Liz Kershaw will debate Northerness in

:20:50.:20:52.

front of a live audience. Phil Redmond is here to talk about it.

:20:53.:20:56.

First, Anne`Marie Tasker asked people what being Northern means to

:20:57.:20:57.

them. Flat caps, pigeons, factories, all

:20:58.:21:11.

old stereotypes of the North. Years on, TV programmes like Skint suggest

:21:12.:21:16.

we are all on benefits. But what does it really mean to be Northern?

:21:17.:21:24.

Poorer than a Southerner. Being friendly is a main part of it. The

:21:25.:21:31.

women are more outspoken. You cannot be big headed. They are not part of

:21:32.:21:38.

the country. Straight talking, passionate, hard`working grumblers!

:21:39.:21:45.

Kinder, and I like being called love all the time. Having a weird

:21:46.:21:49.

accident. Obviously, the accents are

:21:50.:21:53.

different. The word the seems to disappear! It

:21:54.:21:58.

seems to say, I am getting off here. They do not have it.

:21:59.:22:04.

But Northerness is about more than that. Or so say the organisers of

:22:05.:22:08.

tonight's debate in Hull. They hope discussing Northerness will

:22:09.:22:10.

encourage more people from Yorkshire to make an impact on Britain's

:22:11.:22:15.

culture. They are going to come to this event

:22:16.:22:19.

with preconceptions about what being Northern is all about and because of

:22:20.:22:23.

the panellists and the work they have done, some of those

:22:24.:22:27.

preconceptions will be broken down and blown away.

:22:28.:22:30.

It is hoped tonight's cultural debate will be the first of many,

:22:31.:22:34.

and prove that although there is still the flat caps...

:22:35.:22:41.

The North is still more diverse than people think.

:22:42.:22:46.

Phil Redmond is with me now ahead of tonight's event. Head judge, City of

:22:47.:22:54.

Culture, why do we win? Because of this idea of what it is to be

:22:55.:23:00.

Northern. The criteria for City of Culture

:23:01.:23:06.

that you have to define your particular culture. It is not for

:23:07.:23:11.

people coming from outside the define a city's culture. So it has

:23:12.:23:16.

to come together to define that culture. Then say what kind of chap

:23:17.:23:23.

`` what kind of changes they will bring about. It is about bringing

:23:24.:23:28.

diverse communities together. Many people had raised eyebrows when city

:23:29.:23:32.

Northerness it. Not as many when Liverpool won it!

:23:33.:23:40.

There were stories about people heading for Newcastle who had to do

:23:41.:23:44.

a sharp turn! So what is Northern?

:23:45.:23:52.

I think it comes down to not London. I think we have to be careful when

:23:53.:23:57.

we talk about being London. There is something special about coming from

:23:58.:24:02.

the centre of the universe, which is Liverpool! I think it goes back to

:24:03.:24:09.

when the Romans invaded and they made London the central point. From

:24:10.:24:13.

that point, the Saxons and the Vikings, the Industrial Revolution

:24:14.:24:19.

and the financial revolution, it was always somewhere else. The North,

:24:20.:24:25.

like South Wales and Cornwall, they have always felt slightly set.

:24:26.:24:31.

Northerness is about being together and also apart. When you talk to

:24:32.:24:36.

your media friends in debates in London, it is it relaxed? It is now!

:24:37.:24:42.

I have had 30 years of meat and drink at them! It is interesting. ``

:24:43.:24:51.

of me. The media 35 years ago was still London dominated and the

:24:52.:24:57.

northerners were looked down on but as media exploded, they needed new

:24:58.:25:02.

ideas and 35 years later, it has gone back and we need to fight on.

:25:03.:25:07.

Enjoy your evening, thank you for coming in.

:25:08.:25:10.

Let's get a recap of the national and regional headlines: taunted,

:25:11.:25:15.

lead, slapped, new evidence of cruelty to some form rubble people

:25:16.:25:20.

at an elderly home. Opponents of a massive chicken farm

:25:21.:25:23.

are told to change their minds if they want to buy British food.

:25:24.:25:26.

Tomorrow's weather: Mostly cloudy, patchy outbreaks of rain through the

:25:27.:25:29.

day. Drier, brighter spells are likely too, especially in

:25:30.:25:35.

Lincolnshire. Highs of 13 Celsius. Before we go, a response on the

:25:36.:25:40.

subject of the chicken farm. Tony, it is a farming county, I moved here

:25:41.:25:46.

from down South and enjoy the fact it is raw, moved to London! Brian, a

:25:47.:25:54.

chance for local job and opponents strike again!

:25:55.:25:59.

Martin said, people who live in areas like this should not oppose

:26:00.:26:02.

farming and food production. Adam agrees, a chicken farm will

:26:03.:26:08.

produce more jobs in the area and provide more chicken for the UK.

:26:09.:26:13.

Mary, it is the size of the farm that is unacceptable.

:26:14.:26:18.

Small is beautiful. Having tried to get planning permission to open a

:26:19.:26:23.

business, Jon says he agrees with the local population, they want no

:26:24.:26:26.

change. Have a nice evening.

:26:27.:26:29.
