:00:00.:00:07.

Good evening. Investigations are continuing into how a fire destroyed

:00:08.:00:14.

two businesses in Hull. It started at a plastics recycling plant on a

:00:15.:00:19.

Saltend industrial estate. At its height, huge plumes of black smoke

:00:20.:00:23.

could be seen for miles around. Now fire crews say they're likely to

:00:24.:00:26.

spend two more days there, as Caroline Bilton reports.

:00:27.:00:31.

24 hours on and still burning. These are the charred remains of two

:00:32.:00:34.

businesses, a plastics recycling plant and a forklift truck company.

:00:35.:00:40.

Both completely destroyed. Hundreds of tonnes of paper and plastic went

:00:41.:00:44.

up in flames, the fire so intense it melted the perimeter fence, which

:00:45.:00:47.

made for challenging conditions for the fire crews trying to bring it

:00:48.:00:55.

under control. Once it catches fire, the risk for us is not only the

:00:56.:00:59.

smoke, but it spreads very rapidly. So it's a case of balancing the

:01:00.:01:03.

safety of our own crews with extinguishing the fire as quickly as

:01:04.:01:07.

we can. So really challenging. It started yesterday lunch time,

:01:08.:01:09.

captured on camera by those working nearby. The black plumes of smoke

:01:10.:01:15.

could be seen from miles around. Everybody ran out into the street

:01:16.:01:20.

and saw the black smoke. It was just like a big black mushroom in the

:01:21.:01:26.

sky. It was really, really black. In the village of Preston, the fire

:01:27.:01:30.

caused a power cut. For this local pub, it couldn't have come at a

:01:31.:01:33.

worse time, right in the middle of lunch service, and it lasted for 11

:01:34.:01:38.

hours. Luckily, a customer went home and brought me a massive, big box of

:01:39.:01:43.

candles. I'm running to the old neighbours to take them them,

:01:44.:01:54.

because nobody had matches, even. ?? WHITE It also started during a

:01:55.:01:57.

five`hour walk`out by firefighters in a dispute over pensions. The fire

:01:58.:02:00.

service said it tested their contingency plans did but not affect

:02:01.:02:03.

the way they fought the fire. Their work at the site is expected to

:02:04.:02:09.

continue into tomorrow. In other news, Six people have been

:02:10.:02:19.

injured in a three`vehicle crash near Skegness. The A158 Burgh Road

:02:20.:02:23.

has been closed for most of the afternoon. None of the injuries are

:02:24.:02:25.

thought to be life`threatening. Earlier, the A15 near Lincoln

:02:26.:02:28.

reopened after a man was airlifted to hospital following a collision

:02:29.:02:31.

between a car and a motorbike. Probation officers say plans to

:02:32.:02:34.

privatise part of their service will put people at risk. The Government

:02:35.:02:37.

wants to outsource the care of medium`to`low`risk offenders and

:02:38.:02:40.

says reforms are being rolled out in a way that maintains public safety.

:02:41.:02:43.

Unions disagree and have held a series of strikes to show their

:02:44.:02:47.

opposition to the plans. Emma Massey reports.

:02:48.:02:48.

Offenders on community orders working with the probation service,

:02:49.:02:51.

making sure they don't get into trouble again. New changes to the

:02:52.:02:55.

service will mean offenders who've served sentences of less than a year

:02:56.:03:02.

will now also be given support. It's been a glaring gap within criminal

:03:03.:03:05.

justice, and successive governments have done nothing about it. This

:03:06.:03:11.

Government has introduced provision for it, and on that basis, I welcome

:03:12.:03:18.

it wholeheartedly. The current probation trust will be split. The

:03:19.:03:21.

National Probation Service will remain in place to manage high risk

:03:22.:03:25.

offenders, but the responsibility of low`to`medium`risk offenders will be

:03:26.:03:27.

privatised, leading many probation workers to take industrial action,

:03:28.:03:30.

saying reforms could put the public in danger. The group of people who

:03:31.:03:38.

make up the low`to`medium`risk tend to be domestic violence

:03:39.:03:40.

perpetrators, robbers, burglars, gang violence, alcohol`fuelled

:03:41.:03:48.

violence. How can we be sure or confident that the public are going

:03:49.:03:53.

to be safe? We are fundamentally against any privatisation, but we

:03:54.:03:56.

would understand a pilot, because that would actually show whether it

:03:57.:03:59.

would work, whether there's any evidence based on what the new

:04:00.:04:02.

projects will do, whether there are any difficulties and flaws, which is

:04:03.:04:10.

what we anticipate. The Ministry of Justice says:

:04:11.:04:24.

The unions argue that these changes could have happened without

:04:25.:04:30.

privatisation. They say they'll continue to fight against them.

:04:31.:04:43.

Veterans from Hull have received a special torch from the Dutch to

:04:44.:04:46.

thank them for their efforts during the Second World War. The Flame of

:04:47.:04:50.

Liberation was handed over during a ceremony overnight. The veterans,

:04:51.:04:52.

who helped free Holland from German occupation almost 70 years ago, will

:04:53.:04:56.

bring the torch back to Hull later this week. At last, we have

:04:57.:05:03.

accomplished what we set out to do. Now we have got to accomplish the

:05:04.:05:07.

second part, which is to get it back home.

:05:08.:05:11.

The Hull City manager, Steve Bruce, has admitted his side can now look

:05:12.:05:15.

forward to the FA Cup Final, after securing Premier League survival.

:05:16.:05:17.

Norwich City drew at Chelsea yesterday, meaning the Tigers cannot

:05:18.:05:20.

be relegated. Arsenal's win also means Hull City will be playing in

:05:21.:05:24.

Europe for the first time in their history next season. An FA Cup final

:05:25.:05:34.

is something to look forward to, but it has been around the corner now

:05:35.:05:38.

four weeks. It has been difficult to focus everybody. Thankfully, the

:05:39.:05:42.

season is now coming to a close and we are safe, which is a fantastic

:05:43.:05:46.

achievement. We can look forward to the cup final, and of course, the

:05:47.:05:50.

added reward of being in Europe, too, is quite remarkable. The

:05:51.:05:52.

weather. What a lovely day it has been. Very

:05:53.:06:05.

similar tomorrow. Sunny spells, feeling born, just an isolated

:06:06.:06:11.

shower. Patchy rain will push in from the West later this evening. It

:06:12.:06:15.

will be heavy and persistent for a time, just about clearing the coast

:06:16.:06:21.

from dawn. Just a bit of rain around the coast at first light but that

:06:22.:06:25.

will soon be into the North Sea and then sky is bright. It looks to be a

:06:26.:06:30.

lovely day. Fine, bright, some sunny spells and just a small chance of

:06:31.:06:34.

catching a shower. Moderate South West wind. 17 Celsius is 63

:06:35.:06:43.

Fahrenheit. Wednesday is not looking too bad. Sunny intervals with a view

:06:44.:06:46.

scattered showers but it turns much more unsettled for those I am

:06:47.:06:50.

Friday, with some heavy downpours expected. That is the forecast.

:06:51.:06:56.

We are back at around 10:20pm tonight.

:06:57.:07:09.

The sunshine today for the bank holiday produced the highest

:07:10.:07:14.

temperature of the long weekend in eastern England today, at 20

:07:15.:07:18.

Celsius. But to the west, the cloud has been gathering. We have seen a

:07:19.:07:22.

bit of rain in Northern Ireland and western Scotland, but the thicker

:07:23.:07:25.

cloud now pushing into the south-west of England is delivering

:07:26.:07:30.

more rain. It will become more extensive over the next few hours. A

:07:31.:07:35.

ragged area of rainfall will move east as the night goes on. If you

:07:36.:07:40.

have yet to make your journey home from the bank holiday weekend, you

:07:41.:07:44.

may encounter sums are a. -- some spray. Temperatures are not too bad

:07:45.:07:51.

. The good news is that most of the rain
