That is all the sport, back to you. That is it from us,

:00:00.:00:08.

Good evening. Emergency services are continuing to tackle a massive fire

:00:09.:00:13.

near Hull, which broke out early this afternoon. It started about one

:00:14.:00:23.

o'clock at the recycling plant at an industrial plant insulting. Huge

:00:24.:00:28.

plumes of black smoke were visible for miles around. It came in the

:00:29.:00:36.

middle of a strike by fire services. Stand`by crews were deployed. No one

:00:37.:00:41.

was in sight at the time of the fire starting and there have been no

:00:42.:00:45.

reports of injuries. But the main road was closed in both directions

:00:46.:00:49.

and those in the surrounding areas were told to keep the doors and

:00:50.:00:55.

windows shut as the smoke spreads. The fire is now under control.

:00:56.:01:00.

And we will bring you all the very latest on Look North later tonight,

:01:01.:01:03.

at10.20pm. Every year, hundreds of tonnes of

:01:04.:01:06.

food that supermarkets do not want goes to waste, as farmers plough

:01:07.:01:10.

perfectly good crops back into the ground. But this weekend, volunteers

:01:11.:01:12.

have been putting some of Lincolnshire's unwanted vegetables

:01:13.:01:15.

to good use, harvesting them to go to local food banks.

:01:16.:01:20.

In a field near Coningsby, in Lincolnshire, volunteers carry out

:01:21.:01:23.

the modern version of an ancient practice known as gleaning.

:01:24.:01:27.

In Biblical times, farmers were encouraged to allow the poor to take

:01:28.:01:31.

what was left after crops had been harvested. Here, modern gleaners

:01:32.:01:34.

pick unwanted leeks that will be distributed to those struggling to

:01:35.:01:46.

afford to eat. Last year, we had 20 days across the country. We saved 48

:01:47.:01:51.

tonnes of projects which went straight to people living in

:01:52.:01:56.

poverty, either through homeless shelters, emergency accommodation or

:01:57.:01:59.

food banks. For farmer Tim Casey, it is a great

:02:00.:02:02.

way to avoid wasting good food, while helping the community.

:02:03.:02:09.

Ideally, we would not have the waste in the first place, but we have to

:02:10.:02:14.

make use of what we have. So it is very good at it is being put to good

:02:15.:02:16.

use. Volunteers have given up their time

:02:17.:02:24.

to come and help. It is a great way to spend a Saturday. It is great to

:02:25.:02:28.

come out here and do something which helps other people. People often

:02:29.:02:35.

associate poverty and malnutrition with underdeveloped countries, but

:02:36.:02:39.

we do not have to go very far into our neighbourhoods and their

:02:40.:02:43.

families and children who in need. Between them, the gleaners expect to

:02:44.:02:47.

save around a tonne of produce today which otherwise would have gone to

:02:48.:02:51.

waste. It is a small start, but the charity hopes to encourage more

:02:52.:02:53.

farmers and volunteers to get involved.

:02:54.:02:57.

Businesses in a Lincolnshire town say they have suffered financially

:02:58.:03:00.

because of the cancellation of an historic flower parade. An event

:03:01.:03:04.

called Tulip Mania has been held in Spalding this weekend, in place of

:03:05.:03:07.

the annual Flower Parade, which ended last year, after half a

:03:08.:03:12.

century. Some hotels say they have seen a drop off in bookings because

:03:13.:03:15.

of its cancellation, but organisers of this weekend's event say they

:03:16.:03:18.

hope it will go some way towards plugging the gap. Yesterday,

:03:19.:03:28.

probably around 2000 people came along. They came to see the gardens

:03:29.:03:36.

here. Today, there is more people than that. Good weather means people

:03:37.:03:40.

are in a good mood and we hope they have enjoyed seeing what we do.

:03:41.:03:44.

World War Two veterans from Hull are visiting the Netherlands to receive

:03:45.:03:47.

a special torch which commemorates the country's liberation. 100,000

:03:48.:03:50.

people took to the streets last year to thank the veterans, who helped

:03:51.:03:53.

free Holland from German occupation almost 70 years ago. Tonight, the

:03:54.:03:56.

veterans will receive a torch, lit by the Fire of Liberation, which

:03:57.:04:01.

they will bring back to Hull. The Football now and Grimsby Town's

:04:02.:04:04.

dreams of promotion to League Two are over, after they lost 3`1 at

:04:05.:04:07.

Gateshead in the play`off semifinals.

:04:08.:04:13.

The Mariners were reduced to ten men at 1`0 down, when Scott Neilson was

:04:14.:04:19.

sent off, but they bounced back with Craig Disley's goal. But after

:04:20.:04:22.

having another man sent off, they went on to concede two more, losing

:04:23.:04:26.

4`2 on aggregate. Manager of newly`promoted Scunthorpe

:04:27.:04:28.

United, Russ Wilcox, says he wants to keep their forward momentum going

:04:29.:04:33.

next season. The Iron drew 2`2 with York in their last game of the

:04:34.:04:36.

season at Glanford Park yesterday. They went one up with a Paddy Madden

:04:37.:04:40.

header in the first half, before Terry Hawkridge's low strike doubled

:04:41.:04:44.

their lead. York battled back to earn a draw, but that did not dampen

:04:45.:04:48.

the promotion celebrations after the final whistle.

:04:49.:04:52.

Rugby League now and it was a bad afternoon for our teams. Hull KR

:04:53.:04:58.

lost 29`34 to Widnes Vikings and Hull FC lost 23`16 to Wakefield.

:04:59.:05:02.

Time for the weather now, with Keeley Donovan.

:05:03.:05:08.

Good evening. Some fine weather to come tomorrow. At the moment, it has

:05:09.:05:19.

been rather cloudy, but there will be breaks in that cloud through this

:05:20.:05:23.

evening and overnight. It will not be a cold night. Tomorrow, the best

:05:24.:05:29.

of the weather in the morning, when we got most of the sunshine.

:05:30.:05:37.

Workload will spill from the West during the afternoon. But it should

:05:38.:05:42.

stay largely dry. The temperature doing well, getting up to around 17

:05:43.:05:49.

or 18 Celsius. A mixture of sunshine and showers to come during the week.

:05:50.:05:54.

And that is all from us for now, but we will be back later tonight. That

:05:55.:05:58.

is just after quarter past ten. Bye for now.

:05:59.:06:09.

Good evening. Today we have had the sunniest skies in the South whereas

:06:10.:06:15.

in the north it has been quite cloudy. Tomorrow, we switch things

:06:16.:06:20.

around. In the east we will have warm, hazy sunshine. In the west we

:06:21.:06:25.

will have the biggest cloud. Tonight, there will be some rain

:06:26.:06:29.

across parts of Scotland. The rain easing across Northern Ireland. For

:06:30.:06:33.

many will be a dry night. For many across the south it will be cold.

:06:34.:06:37.

Maybe not quite as cold as last night. We should start with quite a

:06:38.:06:46.

bit of sunshine across central and eastern areas. The sunshine will

:06:47.:06:50.

turn quite hazy of the cloud spills in from the west. The wind is also

:06:51.:06:55.

starting to pick up and we will see rain. For Northern Ireland, the rain

:06:56.:07:00.

spreading across a good part

:07:01.:07:01.
