back in the 1970s. That is all from the BBC News At Six. Time now

:00:00.:00:00.

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

:00:00.:00:09.

years after the UK opened its borders to Eastern Europe, claims

:00:10.:00:26.

Boston will never be the same again. We have had a vast amount of Eastern

:00:27.:00:40.

European is coming into the town. Anger after one flooded community is

:00:41.:00:43.

given charitable support rather than compensation.

:00:44.:00:51.

I'm at Blundell Park as Grimsby Town begin their bid for promotion. The

:00:52.:01:06.

weather forecast follows in 15 minutes. Good evening.

:01:07.:01:16.

There are claims tonight that levels of migration from Eastern Europe

:01:17.:01:19.

have changed one Lincolnshire town for ever. Today marks the tenth

:01:20.:01:24.

anniversary of migrants arriving in the UK from across the European

:01:25.:01:32.

Union. Many of those who've come to East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire say

:01:33.:01:35.

they're happy here and have no intention of returning to their home

:01:36.:01:41.

countries. But one councillor has told Look North his home town has

:01:42.:01:44.

changed for ever as a result of migration. Caroline Bilton reports.

:01:45.:01:54.

Hull's Polish community is thriving. In this one street in the city there

:01:55.:01:57.

are Polish butchers, bakers and supermarkets ` ten years ago it was

:01:58.:02:00.

a very different story. Angelika Durda was one of the first

:02:01.:02:04.

to take advantage of Poland joining the EU ` she came here with her

:02:05.:02:08.

husband ` he came to work on the south bank as a welder. She gave up

:02:09.:02:12.

her job as a teacher and she spoke no English. It was awful in the

:02:13.:02:16.

beginning when I couldn't speak English. I couldn't answer people.

:02:17.:02:25.

It was very frustrating. I had a lot of help from my neighbours, from my

:02:26.:02:34.

husband's employer and from the college. I decided to say here. `` I

:02:35.:02:42.

decided to stay here. Ten years later and she's now set up a

:02:43.:02:46.

business as a childminder and has no intention of returning to Poland.

:02:47.:02:50.

Greg Futyma is an entrepreneur ` he runs a Polish website helping

:02:51.:02:58.

businesses like this to thrive. We got married in 2004. When we moved

:02:59.:03:07.

to the UK, we just felt like we are creating our home right here. That

:03:08.:03:12.

is why this town, this city is so close to our hearts. In 2001 there

:03:13.:03:19.

were just 57 Polish residents in Hull. By 2011 that number had risen

:03:20.:03:24.

to nearly 5,000 ` a large increase but still a relatively small

:03:25.:03:27.

percentage of the population of a city the size of Hull. In Boston in

:03:28.:03:32.

Lincolnshire for example in 2011, there were nearly 7,000 migrants

:03:33.:03:36.

living in the market town, making up 10% of the total population. And

:03:37.:03:40.

this has been the result. Protest marches and demonstrations.

:03:41.:03:44.

Magdelena came to Boston in 2004 ` she started working in factories but

:03:45.:03:48.

she now owns a bar ` she believes more could be done to create harmony

:03:49.:03:57.

in the town. We should look at ourselves and be the first to shake

:03:58.:04:03.

hands and say, hello. It is not this is only need to be English people

:04:04.:04:07.

coming and welcoming others. Over the decade, we have had a fast, fast

:04:08.:04:12.

amount of Eastern Europeans coming into the town. It is completely

:04:13.:04:16.

change the atmosphere and ethos in a way of the time. For these polish

:04:17.:04:25.

migrants in Hull the last ten years have been a positive experience.

:04:26.:04:30.

Their businesses are thriving ` success they say they would never

:04:31.:04:35.

have experienced back in Poland... I caught England my country now,

:04:36.:04:39.

despite being born abroad. I would fight for England if need be. I

:04:40.:04:45.

wouldn't for Poland. What's your experience of European migration `

:04:46.:04:48.

whether you came from Eastern Europe or whether you were born locally?

:04:49.:04:51.

And why do you think the experiences of Boston and Hull are so different?

:04:52.:05:19.

Network Rail has apologised to the family of a little girl who died

:05:20.:05:25.

when the car that she was in was hit by a train on a level crossing near

:05:26.:05:31.

Gainsborough. An inquest into the death of four`year0old Emma Lifsey

:05:32.:05:33.

from North Lincolnshire concluded her death was an accident. But the

:05:34.:05:39.

Assistant Coroner says the warning lights at the crossing were not

:05:40.:05:47.

bright enough. Sarah Corker reports. Emma Lifsey, described by her family

:05:48.:05:51.

has a four`year`old rarely seen without a huge, beaming smile.

:05:52.:05:56.

Throughout the inquest, her family have had to relive the horror of the

:05:57.:06:01.

day she died. Her grandmother had been bringing her home from

:06:02.:06:05.

preschool when their car was hit by an East Midlands Trains at a level

:06:06.:06:07.

crossing. changes more quickly. Network

:06:08.:07:01.

Rail's risk specialist told me a programme is underway to replace the

:07:02.:07:02.

old take data security seriously.

:07:03.:08:26.

Water park specialists have been brought in to look at the water play

:08:27.:08:42.

area at East Park in Hull. It was closed last year after more than a

:08:43.:08:45.

dozen people contracted the parasite crypto`sper` idium.

:08:46.:08:47.

Thanks to everyone who got in touch with us following our story about

:08:48.:08:51.

plans to rear hundreds of thousands of chickens in Lincolnshire. People

:08:52.:08:58.

who live in two villages near Sleaford fear they'll be plagued by

:08:59.:09:01.

smells and extra traffic if a chicken farm is built near them.

:09:02.:09:39.

Thank you for watching this Thursday night.

:09:40.:09:45.

Still ahead tonight: After four years in non league football,

:09:46.:09:49.

Grimsby Town are hoping to move a step closer to promotion. And

:09:50.:09:57.

popping out for a pint to what could be the smallest pub in the planet.

:09:58.:10:04.

Sunrise over Withernsea taken by Joanna Taylor. Thank you for that.

:10:05.:10:14.

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

:10:15.:10:27.

Smallest pod, I suppose I am small. Listen to this. Somebody says, you

:10:28.:10:30.

can only present the weather if you have no sex appeal at all.

:10:31.:10:38.

We will move on. Looks like tomorrow will be right, with sunny spells,

:10:39.:10:47.

especially in the afternoon. High pressure will build behind this

:10:48.:10:56.

front. Look at this for Saturday. Gardeners beware, there will be a

:10:57.:11:02.

fairly widespread ground Frost. It has been a dreary day, especially

:11:03.:11:14.

across northern eastern areas. The chance of a sharp shower in southern

:11:15.:11:22.

parts of our region. Lowest temperatures

:11:23.:11:48.

at around seven Celsius. The sun will rise around 4:35pm. .

:11:49.:12:01.

Inland, around 11. Watch out for that widespread ground Frost.

:12:02.:12:12.

Saturday will be dry with lots of sunshine. Temperatures will recover

:12:13.:12:17.

on bank holiday Monday. We need to cover up our delicate on

:12:18.:12:29.

Friday night. Be careful. Yes.

:12:30.:12:34.

See you tomorrow. People affected by serious flooding

:12:35.:12:37.

in Goole two years ago say they're angry that Yorkshire Water has

:12:38.:12:40.

offered to set up a small community fund rather than pay full

:12:41.:12:43.

compensation.The town was inundated with flood water following violent

:12:44.:12:55.

storms in July 2012. Yorkshire Water says it wants to contribute to good

:12:56.:12:59.

causes in the town but homeowners say they want more. Amanda White

:13:00.:13:02.

reports when Jonathan Taylor's home flooded in July 2012 it was his

:13:03.:13:05.

second flood in a year. A failure at this pumping station

:13:06.:13:08.

was partly blamed, and now Yorkshire Water is hoping set up a community

:13:09.:13:12.

fund as a thank you for residents for being patient. I don't think it

:13:13.:13:20.

is going to be enough, to be honest with you. I don't think they are

:13:21.:13:30.

going to be liable. If they are not liable, why did they have tankers

:13:31.:13:33.

coming down here at two o'clock in the morning?

:13:34.:13:35.

The lack of compensation for affected households here has so

:13:36.:13:38.

incensed one local councillor he's boycotting the whole community fund

:13:39.:13:46.

plan. I see that as a cynical attempt by Yorkshire water to divide

:13:47.:13:55.

this community. Yorkshire water should stand up to their

:13:56.:14:05.

responsibilities. But a report into the cause of this

:14:06.:14:08.

flood was inconclusive. Some homes were full of water before the

:14:09.:14:11.

pumping station failed. The liability issues have been difficult

:14:12.:14:16.

to prove. Yorkshire water have said they won't pay compensation. The

:14:17.:14:31.

investigations are ongoing. But an acknowledgement isn't quite

:14:32.:14:39.

what Jonathan was hoping for. The height was just below mining. We are

:14:40.:14:47.

worried that we will flood again. Anybody who has been through it, it

:14:48.:14:51.

There will be no compensation for these households, but community

:14:52.:14:54.

groups in Goole can bid for cash to support their work. Is devastating

:14:55.:14:58.

stressful. Earlier I spoke to Gary Collins from

:14:59.:15:01.

Yorkshire Water and asked him why they won't offer compensation to

:15:02.:15:15.

homeowners. The report clearly states the number of factors

:15:16.:15:21.

contributed to the flooding in 2012. What needs to be done is to

:15:22.:15:29.

fully understand exactly what those different factors were. The interim

:15:30.:15:34.

report says there was a fault and failing at the pumping station,

:15:35.:15:38.

second time in 18 months. Don't you owe it to the people to recompense

:15:39.:15:42.

them? The interim report came out quite early after the incident. We

:15:43.:15:55.

have been building a model which tells those about the circumstances.

:15:56.:16:05.

What you say to the local councillor who said today it is a disgusting,

:16:06.:16:09.

cynical gesture, insensitive and an insult? Well, I am disappointed that

:16:10.:16:21.

he has taken a stand. I know they work hard for the benefit of the

:16:22.:16:27.

community. We would've liked the cancer to give his experience and

:16:28.:16:33.

knowledge of the town. Going forward, we do work closely with the

:16:34.:16:39.

council. We look forward to continuing to do that. ?119 million.

:16:40.:16:48.

You are offering a small fund to support charities and organisations

:16:49.:16:54.

in the area. How much will that be? The amount has not been agreed. The

:16:55.:16:59.

meeting will take place next week. Approximately how much? That is what

:17:00.:17:04.

we need to work through at the meeting. Once we have had that

:17:05.:17:11.

meeting, we'll have a better understanding and we will build to

:17:12.:17:16.

save them. Your message to people in cool whose insurance premiums have

:17:17.:17:19.

gone up because of this, what would you say to them? `` your message to

:17:20.:17:26.

people in Gaul. We continue to work closely with the East Riding

:17:27.:17:33.

Council. There has been some great work undertaken.

:17:34.:17:35.

Very good to have you on the programme. Thank you.

:17:36.:17:39.

And this is another story we'd like your thoughts on. The report says

:17:40.:17:45.

it's not certain that those floods were caused by Yorkshire water so

:17:46.:17:49.

should they pay compensation. If you were affected by the flooding, what

:17:50.:18:01.

are your thoughts? Tonight sees an important game in

:18:02.:18:04.

the history of Grimsby Town who could move closer to regaining their

:18:05.:18:10.

league status. Four years ago The Mariners were relegated into

:18:11.:18:12.

non`league football and it's been a frustrating time for the club since.

:18:13.:18:23.

Here's Simon Clark. They want a new stadium and they

:18:24.:18:29.

want their league status back. And that's why so much is riding on this

:18:30.:18:33.

game tonight. Four years in non`league football and Grimsby Town

:18:34.:18:37.

want to be back in the big time. It doesn't matter whether you finish

:18:38.:18:41.

second or fifth. You would expect all the games to be close. Teams are

:18:42.:18:54.

quite evenly matched. We are excited. It will be a massive game,

:18:55.:19:04.

massive occasion. I think the general feeling is massive

:19:05.:19:06.

excitement. The Mariners host Gateshead tonight

:19:07.:19:09.

with the return on Sunday. If their aggregate score is better they'll

:19:10.:19:13.

progress to a Wembley final on the 18th May against Halifax or

:19:14.:19:16.

Cambridge for the right to earn their league status. Their defence

:19:17.:19:34.

is rubbish. The goalkeeper is good. We need to keep him. I think we may

:19:35.:19:40.

hedge picked. Plans for a 14,000`seat stadium is all well and

:19:41.:19:43.

good but it will require league football to fill it. The games is

:19:44.:19:52.

important. At the end of the day, it is not vital to the football club

:19:53.:19:55.

but it is important to get back in the league. We have our fingers

:19:56.:19:58.

crossed. So as the players contemplate the

:19:59.:20:01.

future, this is more than just another game. Simon, what are the

:20:02.:20:10.

chances of Grimsby Town ending their time in non`league football? I think

:20:11.:20:15.

it is as good as any of the other three clubs involved. They are also

:20:16.:20:22.

close. Take tonight's opponents, for example. Gateshead. They finished

:20:23.:20:26.

one point ahead of Grimsby town on the table, and they scored as many

:20:27.:20:30.

victories as the Mariners. Gateshead have plans to move to new stadium.

:20:31.:20:47.

Grimsby need a good lead tonight. If they can get through these two, it

:20:48.:20:51.

is another Wembley final. Thank you. And you can hear how Grimsby get on

:20:52.:21:07.

with BBC Radio Humberside tonight. North Ferriby United were beaten

:21:08.:21:10.

last night, denting their hopes of promotion to the Conference Premier.

:21:11.:21:13.

The Villagers lost 2`0 to Guiseley, in the first leg of their semi final

:21:14.:21:17.

play off. The second leg is at home on Saturday.

:21:18.:21:20.

Thousands of Hull City fans have been queuing at the KC Stadium to

:21:21.:21:23.

buy tickets for the FA Cup final. People who'd been to the semifinal

:21:24.:21:30.

were able to get tickets today. Some fans had queued overnight to secure

:21:31.:21:35.

their seat at Wembley. It is what it is all for, isn't it? It was cold at

:21:36.:21:41.

130 in the morning, but worth it. We will be there. It is great, isn't

:21:42.:21:49.

it? FA Cup final. Can you believe you are going to an FA Cup final?

:21:50.:21:54.

Well, not sitting. Fantastic. People in Cleethorpes have been

:21:55.:21:57.

toasting the re`opening of one of their favourite pubs, but it's a pub

:21:58.:22:08.

with a difference. The Signal Box Inn, which sits within the

:22:09.:22:11.

Cleethorpes light railway, claims to be the smallest pub on the planet.

:22:12.:22:20.

You are looking at a success. It boasts a large number of different

:22:21.:22:26.

ales. Why is it so hugely popular? Because it is claimed to be the

:22:27.:22:31.

smallest pub on the planet. This is the normal sized landlord, Alan. He

:22:32.:22:38.

will take is on a very short tour. As we arrived at the smallest pub in

:22:39.:22:42.

the world, you come through a beautiful, well decorated entrance

:22:43.:22:48.

to a site of alcoholic interest. You can see the different readers we

:22:49.:22:52.

have had the previous year on the wall. You can sit down in a nice

:22:53.:23:02.

cosy corner and few a nine hole golf course. Being only 8' x 8' square,

:23:03.:23:09.

there is room for these games only on the ceiling. There is just about

:23:10.:23:16.

room for me and Nigel. Cheers. Cheers. You get busy night. Cider

:23:17.:23:25.

weekend is good fun. This is Nigel's footage of just turning

:23:26.:23:28.

people they can serve from such a small space. It is special, good. It

:23:29.:23:37.

is unique and different. It is not like your usual big brand pubs. So

:23:38.:23:41.

nestled within a small`scale railway, is maybe the world's

:23:42.:23:47.

smallest pub with the largest amount of local respect.

:23:48.:23:53.

Let's get a recap of the national and regional headlines. Gerry Adams

:23:54.:24:06.

remains in custody. A decade after Britain opened its

:24:07.:24:09.

borders to Eastern Europe one councillor in Boston has told Look

:24:10.:24:13.

North the town will never be the same again.

:24:14.:24:27.

We were talking about migration. A big response. Thank you for the

:24:28.:24:36.

messages. Down in Hull says, every shop in the street naming his

:24:37.:24:41.

Eastern European. Live in this country but don't try to turn it

:24:42.:24:45.

into your own country. Make says, I used to visit Boston regularly but I

:24:46.:24:51.

don't because it is full of young men speaking Polish, which I find

:24:52.:24:57.

intimidating. Another one saying, if not for immigrants, Boston would be

:24:58.:25:01.

very boring. David said, Boston is lively and has benefited greatly

:25:02.:25:07.

from immigration. If the immigrants were to leave Boston, it would die

:25:08.:25:11.

quickly. The farmers would struggle to find people to work on the land.

:25:12.:25:20.

I welcome immigrants. Simon says, I work on side Eastern Europeans and I

:25:21.:25:23.

find them very friendly with a very strong work ethic that puts others

:25:24.:25:27.

Brits to shame. Thank you for watching. Goodbye.

:25:28.:25:52.

'The last two generations have been robbed of an opportunity

:25:53.:25:55.

'And yet it has greater impact on our everyday lives than anything

:25:56.:25:59.

'We need to put this issue to bed now,

:26:00.:26:03.

'and not leave it for another generation.'

:26:04.:26:05.

I want a Britain that is free to control its own destiny.
