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

:00:00.:00:09.

worker dies at the Cemex cement`making factory. Al baguette

:00:10.:00:21.

and local reaction to the tragic incident `` al be getting.

:00:22.:00:27.

As Hull City prepare for their first ever European competition, how will

:00:28.:00:31.

their success reflect on the area? Clearly the value of this

:00:32.:00:36.

competition to the city goes beyond everything.

:00:37.:00:40.

Veterans from Hull are honoured for their part in liberating Holland in

:00:41.:00:43.

World War II. Boston Stump re`opens after being

:00:44.:00:45.

severely damaged in December's tidal surge. Don't forget that forecast in

:00:46.:01:02.

15 minutes. A man has died after an incident at

:01:03.:01:06.

a cement making factory in North Lincolnshire. It happened this

:01:07.:01:08.

morning as he was working to repair part of the Cemex plant in South

:01:09.:01:12.

Ferriby which was damaged by December's tidal surge. Our reporter

:01:13.:01:16.

Kate Sweeting joins me now live from South Ferriby. Kate, what more do we

:01:17.:01:23.

know about the incident? This is thought to have happened

:01:24.:01:27.

mid`morning today. The man, who's a German contractor in his 30s, was

:01:28.:01:30.

working to repair flood damage here, which happened during the December

:01:31.:01:36.

tidal surge. Earlier I spoke to the first aider who treated him who told

:01:37.:01:40.

me he fell, sustaining serious injuries which killed him. All the

:01:41.:01:48.

staff was sent home early today. This factory is a big employer in

:01:49.:01:51.

South Ferriby, and people locally have been hugely shocked. I've only

:01:52.:02:07.

just heard the news. It is sad. You don't expect it. You think

:02:08.:02:10.

everything is getting back to normal. What other company said? ``

:02:11.:02:26.

have the. The company has released a statement. "All operations and work

:02:27.:02:29.

at the plant have been suspended. We are working with the relevant

:02:30.:02:32.

authorities to investigate and fully understand the circumstances of this

:02:33.:02:35.

tragic incident. Our thoughts are with the contractor's family and

:02:36.:02:38.

friends." The Health and Safety Executive is currently

:02:39.:02:40.

investigating, as are Humberside Police. As well as being tragic,

:02:41.:02:43.

this is another big blow to the company which has been going through

:02:44.:02:47.

a very difficult period. Like many houses here it sustained serious

:02:48.:02:49.

damage during Decembers tidal and repairs still aren't complete,

:02:50.:02:53.

and it was those repairs that this man was working on when he was

:02:54.:03:10.

killed. Thank you very much. In a moment. Worries shellfishing off the

:03:11.:03:13.

Lincolnshire coast could be damaged by a new wind farm.

:03:14.:03:19.

There is massive impact from these works and we need to know our

:03:20.:03:29.

industry will be able to continue. Hull could get 'priceless publicity'

:03:30.:03:32.

and millions of pounds of extra business after the football team

:03:33.:03:34.

qualified for European competition for the first time in their history,

:03:35.:03:38.

as FA Cup finalists Hull City have earned their place because Arsenal

:03:39.:03:41.

have qualified for the Champions League. Our sports reporter Simon

:03:42.:03:44.

Clark has been finding out what European football will mean for the

:03:45.:03:49.

city. It's now required reading and today

:03:50.:03:52.

football fans in Hull are pouring over the Atlas knowing their dreams

:03:53.:03:56.

of playing in Europe have been realised. Hull City will blossom

:03:57.:03:59.

into the Europa League thanks to their progress in the FA Cup and

:04:00.:04:01.

opponents Arsenal's qualification for the Champions League. There is a

:04:02.:04:05.

sense of disbelief from even the most optimistic of die`hard fans.

:04:06.:04:11.

Those chats you have when you say, would you rather win the cup or be

:04:12.:04:18.

in Europe. I really didn't think the second would happen. It is good for

:04:19.:04:22.

the city. More people coming in. City of culture. Which team would

:04:23.:04:33.

like to see most of all? Spanish teams really. Valencia, Sevilla.

:04:34.:04:43.

Just any decent team. So what is it worth to club and city? Based on

:04:44.:04:46.

last season's figures each round earns you a minimum of 100,000

:04:47.:04:49.

euros, plus a share of television revenue. The winners Chelsea took 5

:04:50.:04:52.

euros million in prize`money and when other revenues come into play

:04:53.:04:56.

pocketed 11 million. And with an attractive draw the economy could

:04:57.:04:59.

earn upwards of ?2 million in visitor revenue. But economist and

:05:00.:05:02.

Tigers fan Michael Nolan says that figure will only be realised with a

:05:03.:05:07.

decent draw. The type of teams that we might get could vary quite a lot

:05:08.:05:12.

in terms of both their size in terms of their fan base, also the

:05:13.:05:15.

distances involved and indeed the nature of travel and how they would

:05:16.:05:25.

possibly choose to visit Hull. Ten years ago Hull City were being

:05:26.:05:29.

promoted from the bottom division of English football and in that season

:05:30.:05:32.

they played Boston United, Lincoln City and Scunthorpe United. Next

:05:33.:05:36.

season they could be playing teams on Bilbao, Lyon or even Athens and

:05:37.:05:41.

Hull in the East Riding is set to benefit.

:05:42.:06:05.

Sumner news `` some more news. Lincolnshire Health Trust have

:06:06.:06:08.

introduced parking charges for disabled drivers for the first time.

:06:09.:06:11.

Blue badge holders will now have to pay a flat fee of ?1.50 to park at

:06:12.:06:15.

their hospitals. Other parking charges have also been increased by

:06:16.:06:18.

around 10%. Also the Trust has agreed that certain patients such as

:06:19.:06:21.

those having regular treatment for cancer and adults accompanying

:06:22.:06:23.

children having emergency treatment will be exempt.

:06:24.:06:25.

Roger Helmer, who represents Lincolnshire as a UKIP member of the

:06:26.:06:29.

European Parliament, is to stand for election as an MP at Westminster.

:06:30.:06:32.

He's been announced as UKIP's candidate in the Newark by`election.

:06:33.:06:35.

Hull's city of culture team says it will give work to Hull`based firms,

:06:36.:06:38.

despite criticism it's using a London`based recruitment firm to

:06:39.:06:41.

fill its three top jobs. Hull City Council is paying a national company

:06:42.:06:45.

?60,000 to find it a chair, a programme director and a chief

:06:46.:06:47.

executive. But some Hull`based businesses are angry that no

:06:48.:06:50.

recruitment companies in the city were asked to tender for the

:06:51.:06:52.

contract. Once again Hull City Council has not

:06:53.:06:55.

had faith in their local businesses. The people who pay the rates.

:06:56.:06:59.

They've taken the money out of the town and giving it to a London based

:07:00.:07:03.

agency. We are more than capable of doing that. Is this going to be the

:07:04.:07:07.

case for every single thing that happens now with the 2017 city of

:07:08.:07:10.

culture? To get the top people we were told you need a top agency.

:07:11.:07:14.

They have linked into people who know people as well as people on

:07:15.:07:18.

their books, and of course a lot of the art world, the leading figures.

:07:19.:07:33.

They tend to revolve around London. You might have a view on this story.

:07:34.:07:37.

Should more have been done to try and use companies in the area to

:07:38.:07:44.

fill this role? You can contact us on the

:07:45.:07:46.

following. They are two of the most important

:07:47.:08:06.

industries off our East Coast ` fishing and offshore wind. But

:08:07.:08:09.

concerns are being raised about how they can work together. Plans have

:08:10.:08:13.

now been unveiled for the latest wind farm off the East Coast. It

:08:14.:08:17.

will cover nearly 30 square miles in the Lincolnshire Wash. But as our

:08:18.:08:21.

Business Correspondent Paul Murphy reports, there are already fears

:08:22.:08:24.

about its potential impact on one of the UK's most important areas for

:08:25.:08:30.

shellfish. Hundreds of wind turbines have

:08:31.:08:33.

already been installed off the East Coast and there are many more on the

:08:34.:08:42.

way. The latest is in the wash, and those plans are now being shared

:08:43.:08:45.

with local communities. 90 turbines linked by a cable to an onshore

:08:46.:08:49.

substation, and the promise of local jobs. What we have seen in other

:08:50.:08:53.

wind farm developments is that there are significant opportunities for

:08:54.:08:58.

the local and regional businesses. If we look at London whrere we

:08:59.:09:01.

recently built on the Thames Estuary, we have seen over 1000

:09:02.:09:04.

people engaged in the construction of that project. But the turbine

:09:05.:09:09.

field will need to exist alongside another important local industry,

:09:10.:09:15.

shellfish. It's thought to be worth around ?35 million a year for the

:09:16.:09:19.

local economy. Cockles, mussels, shrimp and crab. It is one of the

:09:20.:09:24.

biggest fishing areas of its kind in Europe. But the fishermen are

:09:25.:09:30.

worried. If we have got to fish less, if we have got to to turn

:09:31.:09:34.

round and give ground, if we are hampered and stop going to our

:09:35.:09:37.

normal historic fishing grounds, then we need some form of recompense

:09:38.:09:43.

to cover those losses. The fishermen's fears are that laying

:09:44.:09:46.

cable and driving turbines into the sea bed could destroy the shellfish

:09:47.:09:55.

habitat. You're now going to put pylons on. What's going to happen?

:09:56.:10:00.

Trawlermen here are already involved in a bitter legal dispute with

:10:01.:10:03.

another wind turbine company over alleged damage to their fishing

:10:04.:10:09.

grounds. These two industries seem a long way off from being able to work

:10:10.:10:15.

together. But the developers say they want to work with the shellfish

:10:16.:10:20.

industry. We are already right now building one wind farm off the east

:10:21.:10:23.

Yorkshire coast, so we've already been engaging with fishermen further

:10:24.:10:28.

north. We know how important it is to find a way of working together to

:10:29.:10:32.

find solutions that work for us and work for the fishing industry.

:10:33.:10:37.

Installation work begins next year. Perhaps this is a real test of

:10:38.:10:40.

whether these two important industries can actually work

:10:41.:10:53.

together. Vital for our part of the world.

:10:54.:10:57.

Should there be more protection for fishermen in the area orders the

:10:58.:11:01.

wind industry need freedom to develop? You can e`mail us and text

:11:02.:11:13.

us. Still ahead tonight: World War II veterans from Hull bring home a

:11:14.:11:17.

Flame of Liberation from Holland. And we've got some essential

:11:18.:11:20.

information for Hull City fans considering following their team

:11:21.:11:35.

into Europe. Neil Nicklin took this yesterday at

:11:36.:11:46.

Blue Bell Woods near North Cave. A lovely picture. Another photograph

:11:47.:11:57.

tomorrow night. I hope you have a good weekend. `` had. I heard about

:11:58.:12:17.

all of the rain. Anyway there are rumours on Twitter that you got

:12:18.:12:25.

married? Tomorrow is a bright start. It will turn showery from the west.

:12:26.:12:29.

You can see this weather fronts here. Later in the day but certainly

:12:30.:12:37.

the morning looks OK but we are looking at a downward trend with

:12:38.:12:40.

increasingly unsettled weather over the coming days. It has been another

:12:41.:12:45.

lovely day, temperatures around 16 degrees. One or two showers have

:12:46.:12:50.

been triggered. You can see the clouds on the pictures here. One or

:12:51.:12:54.

two showers in the next few hours, with sunny intervals in between. We

:12:55.:13:01.

have rain in Ireland at the moment which could push eastwards. 10

:13:02.:13:10.

Celsius is 50 Fahrenheit which will be the top temperature tonight. The

:13:11.:13:20.

sun will rise in the morning. Mostly dry and bright start to Wednesday

:13:21.:13:23.

when some sunshine. There will be one or two showers but the morning

:13:24.:13:28.

is not too bad. Clouds will increase an afternoon will turn showery.

:13:29.:13:35.

Showers pushing in on a stiffening south`west wind. Those temperatures

:13:36.:13:39.

as taking a bit of a head, a couple of degrees down on where there have

:13:40.:13:44.

been, with top temperatures of 14 degrees across the east riding. So,

:13:45.:13:56.

Thursday. We will see some outbreaks of rain spreading north easterly.

:13:57.:14:00.

Friday has some heavy, perhaps thundery showers developing and

:14:01.:14:08.

Saturday will be rainy again. It turns increasingly unsettled over

:14:09.:14:17.

the next few days. Jim is watching the show in Spain tonight. Even I

:14:18.:14:29.

can forecast there. See you tomorrow.

:14:30.:14:36.

World War II veterans from Hull will return from the Netherlands this

:14:37.:14:39.

week carrying a special flame, which commemorates the country's

:14:40.:14:41.

liberation. The flame is lit every year to mark the anniversary of when

:14:42.:14:44.

Germany surrendered in Holland. Members of the Normandy Veterans'

:14:45.:14:47.

Association were presented with the Flame of Liberation at the weekend

:14:48.:14:50.

in Holland. It's usually sent to communities across the country, but

:14:51.:14:53.

this year for the first time, it will also be carried back to the UK.

:14:54.:14:58.

Gemma Dawson has been following the veterans and sent this report.

:14:59.:15:18.

Remembering those they lost, here in the land they helped to liberate.

:15:19.:15:31.

Very emotional. Thinking about the lives were lost. Laying a wreath

:15:32.:15:37.

here, thinking about the airmen who drowned. British and Allied troops

:15:38.:15:42.

arrived in the Netherlands in 1944 ` after four years of German

:15:43.:15:48.

occupation. It was so hard to dry the Germans out of Holland and it

:15:49.:15:52.

was a long hard battle, and during that time the Dutch people didn't

:15:53.:16:05.

have any food. `` drive. They were starving. Now almost 70 years on,

:16:06.:16:09.

thousands turned up to welcome the veterans back ` walking side by side

:16:10.:16:12.

in a silent march through the streets of Wageningen. Later, the

:16:13.:16:16.

Chairman of the National Committee of Commemoration told me people here

:16:17.:16:20.

want to thank them for their efforts. Over the years people in

:16:21.:16:24.

the Netherlands and other countries realise that it is important what

:16:25.:16:32.

veterans have done. You have to honour them and that is happening

:16:33.:16:36.

now. I'm very happy about that. Every year, to mark the day when

:16:37.:16:39.

Germany surrendered in Holland, a flame is lit here. At this ceremony

:16:40.:16:46.

the veterans have received a special torch lit by the flame of

:16:47.:16:51.

liberation. It is a symbol of freedom which the veterans say is

:16:52.:17:03.

priceless. He is going to take the fire, take the torch, keep it

:17:04.:17:08.

burning. And marching. It's quite a unique feeling. I can't say any

:17:09.:17:18.

more. They're still here and to come to our commemoration is an honour

:17:19.:17:23.

for us. For us it is special, but always within the Netherlands and

:17:24.:17:27.

for the first time that is getting back to England. As communities from

:17:28.:17:34.

across the Netherlands collect the flame and head home, the veterans

:17:35.:17:37.

too will return to Hull where the flame will be welcomed on Thursday.

:17:38.:17:48.

Five months after it was badly damaged by flooding, the Boston

:17:49.:17:51.

Stump Tower has re`opened to the public. The well known landmark was

:17:52.:17:56.

damaged by the December tidal surge. Church officials say other repair

:17:57.:17:59.

work to parts of St Botolph's could take another 18 months. Simon Spark

:18:00.:18:07.

has more. Setting up shop again for the first

:18:08.:18:11.

time since the floods of December last year. It is a long recovery for

:18:12.:18:17.

the iconic landmark but now with the shop reopened things are starting to

:18:18.:18:22.

get back to normal. We are happy to be up and running again after a long

:18:23.:18:26.

time. It has been a long five mums with a lot of hard work. There's a

:18:27.:18:35.

lot of work to do and it is expensive. As churches go this is an

:18:36.:18:42.

attractive church. With a tower reopened people can witness the

:18:43.:18:46.

breathtaking views across Boston and of course the river that cause so

:18:47.:18:51.

much devastation just five months ago. It couldn't have looked more

:18:52.:18:56.

tranquil today but compare this with the scenes of December the 5th. It

:18:57.:19:06.

was devastating for people to see and just the volume of water that

:19:07.:19:10.

came through. People worked so hard on the building year ensuring it is

:19:11.:19:17.

maintained in a way that it helps the community. When things happen

:19:18.:19:23.

like that it is about the town. There is still a lot of work to do

:19:24.:19:28.

including the electrics, the entire heating system and replacing the

:19:29.:19:33.

platforms. All that could take another 18 months.

:19:34.:19:45.

Police are now treating a fire at a recycling plant in East Yorkshire as

:19:46.:19:50.

arson. A joint investigation has begun between the police and the

:19:51.:19:53.

Fire Service to find out how the plant burnt to the ground at Saltend

:19:54.:19:57.

on Sunday. Firefighters have been using heavy lifting machinery to

:19:58.:19:59.

clear debris, which is still smouldering.

:20:00.:20:01.

At the moment we can't determine what the cause of the fire is so we

:20:02.:20:06.

are classing it as arson. We have a joint investigation between the

:20:07.:20:09.

police and the fire brigade and that is ongoing at the moment. So we are

:20:10.:20:13.

appealing for anyone in the area at the time to come forward. There is a

:20:14.:20:17.

lot of public highways at the back where people might be walking their

:20:18.:20:20.

dogs. We are asking them to come forward if they were in the area.

:20:21.:20:30.

Sun News just coming in. Firefighters are trying to control a

:20:31.:20:35.

fire at a recycling plant. They were called at 6pm to a building. We will

:20:36.:20:45.

let you know on that one. A young choir from Lincolnshire narrowly

:20:46.:20:48.

missed out in the final of Songs of Praise's School Choir of the Year.

:20:49.:20:51.

The students from Lincoln Minster School made it to the final six and

:20:52.:20:55.

got positive comments from the celebrity judges, including Gareth

:20:56.:20:59.

Malone. These students from this cruel got

:21:00.:21:07.

to the final six of the contest and got positive comments from this

:21:08.:21:16.

levity judgments `` celebrity judges. Scunthorpe United are

:21:17.:21:26.

preparing for a bus tour of the town to celebrate their promotion to

:21:27.:21:29.

League One. The tour starts tomorrow evening from 5.30pm at Glanford

:21:30.:21:32.

Park. The bus will drive along Scotter Road, Moorwell Road,

:21:33.:21:34.

Messingham Road, Ashby Road, Oswald Road and Frodingham Road ` before

:21:35.:21:37.

travelling to Normanby Hall for a civic reception with the Mayor at

:21:38.:21:40.

6.30pm. It starts off at 5pm here when we

:21:41.:21:44.

have the trophy and the medals presented to the players. We hop

:21:45.:21:48.

onto the bus at 5:30pm, going on a tour around the town. Really looking

:21:49.:21:52.

forward to it. Hopefully is going to be a fantastic turnout from the fans

:21:53.:21:56.

and they can cheer us round the route.

:21:57.:22:04.

The Hull City manager, Steve Bruce, says his side can play their final

:22:05.:22:07.

two league matches with more freedom after securing another season in the

:22:08.:22:11.

Premier League. The Tigers lost 3`1 against Aston Villa at the weekend,

:22:12.:22:14.

but their safety was guaranteed when Norwich only drew at Chelsea on

:22:15.:22:17.

Sunday. Hull City play Manchester United tonight.

:22:18.:22:19.

We've got Manchester United and Everton, which is never going to be

:22:20.:22:24.

easy. So we have Manchester United, Everton and Arsenal. Big games to

:22:25.:22:31.

look forward to but we can go and have a freedom about us, and

:22:32.:22:35.

whenever you go to Old Trafford it's where you want to play. There will

:22:36.:22:39.

be 75,000 people there and it is a wonderful place to come.

:22:40.:22:43.

Commentary is on BBC Radio Humberside from 7.45pm. Their sport

:22:44.:22:55.

programme is on air now. Hull City fans are getting ready to

:22:56.:23:01.

clock up miles as they enter Europe. One of the further strips could be

:23:02.:23:07.

two North Eastern Turkey, more than 2000 miles away. We sent our

:23:08.:23:12.

reporter to see how fans are brushing up on their language skills

:23:13.:23:19.

in preparation. Yorkshire's only maritime city has continental

:23:20.:23:23.

influences. It has a ferry links to Holland and Belgium and has long

:23:24.:23:27.

promoted its out to the gateway to Europe. Now with the possibility of

:23:28.:23:32.

football matches as far as field as Turkey, Sweden or Germany, fans will

:23:33.:23:38.

be travelling thousands of miles on their quest for European glory. Fans
