That's all from the BBC News at Six, so it's goodbye from me

:00:00.:00:00.

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

:00:00.:00:10.

Exercise more or risk an early death ` the warning to thousands of women

:00:11.:00:23.

classed as inactive. There will be more likely to be active as an

:00:24.:00:24.

adult. The narrow escape for the lorry

:00:25.:00:27.

driver who crashed off this motorway.

:00:28.:00:29.

A campaign to force householders to put their wheelie bins away. People

:00:30.:00:36.

are quite passionate about the fact they want the streets to look clean

:00:37.:00:39.

and tidy. They want to be proud of the area.

:00:40.:00:42.

Settling in at their new home ` the latest arrivals pulling in crowds at

:00:43.:00:47.

The Deep. A chilly weekend but an unsettled

:00:48.:00:51.

one. I will be back later with the details.

:00:52.:00:58.

Women in Hull risk dying young because they don't exercise enough,

:00:59.:01:04.

according to scientists. Figures show six out of ten women and five

:01:05.:01:08.

out of ten men in the city are classed as inactive. Today, the City

:01:09.:01:12.

Council started a four`year plan to improve fitness. It coincides with

:01:13.:01:16.

research that's found inactivity is a bigger risk to health than

:01:17.:01:24.

drinking and smoking. And it's a growing problem that is already

:01:25.:01:27.

costing the NHS more than ?1 billion a year. Jill Archbold reports.

:01:28.:01:34.

Separated by age, but United by exercise. Those in Hull who do it

:01:35.:01:39.

often are reducing their risk of disease or premature death. But the

:01:40.:01:43.

City Council is concerned about two thirds of their population not doing

:01:44.:01:53.

the recommended amount. Clearly, we need to invest, but we also need to

:01:54.:01:56.

make best use of the things we have already got. And that is part of

:01:57.:02:02.

this strategy. We have got some fantastic leisure facilities, and

:02:03.:02:09.

green spaces, in Hull, we want to see that used more often. In Hull,

:02:10.:02:13.

62% of women and 50% of men are classed as inactive, with more than

:02:14.:02:16.

a quarter of the population described as clinically obese.

:02:17.:02:19.

That's 4% higher than the national average. In a four year plan, the

:02:20.:02:24.

council have pledged to increase the number of people taking part in

:02:25.:02:27.

sport, starting with children like these. But do their families follow

:02:28.:02:37.

suit? My parents are quite lazy sometimes. My mum and dad are quite

:02:38.:02:47.

sporty. My dad plays golf. If you instil it from an early age, they

:02:48.:02:51.

will go on to be more likely to be active as an adult. The families had

:02:52.:02:56.

to be massively on board because they are the ones that are going to

:02:57.:02:59.

take the children to the activities and take time out. An aspiration

:03:00.:03:02.

too, to close a gender divide, and in a video which champions the

:03:03.:03:06.

plans, women who have made a career from sport. Thanks to the active

:03:07.:03:13.

women project, I am now in all`time paid implement, I have made lots of

:03:14.:03:17.

new friends and helped lots of people lose weight. There are signs

:03:18.:03:21.

of positive change. 70% of those who rode in the Sky Ride continued to

:03:22.:03:23.

cycle. But can increasing participation in Hull help reduce

:03:24.:03:26.

the ?10 billion cost of England's inactivity?

:03:27.:03:33.

Earlier, I spoke to Hull West and Hessle MP Alan Johnson, who was the

:03:34.:03:38.

Health Secretary between 2007 and 2009. I asked him if there was any

:03:39.:03:44.

evidence to show councils could get people active.

:03:45.:03:48.

Well, councils have now taken over responsibility for public health,

:03:49.:03:50.

and being active is really important because you do not want to devote

:03:51.:03:53.

everything to hospital care, which is too late, because people are ill.

:03:54.:03:58.

You want to stop them being ill in the first place, and local

:03:59.:04:01.

authorities are well placed to help with that. Six out of ten women,

:04:02.:04:05.

five out of ten men, never exercise in Hull, does that matter? It

:04:06.:04:08.

matters a lot, because physical activity, along with diet, are

:04:09.:04:13.

crucial in this. People who are physically active are 50% less

:04:14.:04:16.

likely to get one of the major chronic diseases like cancer or

:04:17.:04:20.

cardiovascular disease. Won't people think, "It's up to me"? I am one of

:04:21.:04:24.

the five out of ten men there. Should people be told by their

:04:25.:04:30.

council to go and exercise? If they want to join a gym, they will join a

:04:31.:04:34.

gym. This is the Director of Public Health, and councils are now

:04:35.:04:37.

responsible for public health, saying, look, we're going to make it

:04:38.:04:41.

easier for you to be active. That is a long way from ordering people to

:04:42.:04:44.

be active. It sounds very similar to me. In other words, get out there

:04:45.:04:48.

and do something! The Council Leader will not be knocking on the door

:04:49.:04:52.

saying, "You haven't done your ten minute walking today!" That is not

:04:53.:04:55.

going to happen, Peter. Your leader, Ed Miliband, says physical activity

:04:56.:04:58.

and us living healthier lives is going to be one of his priorities.

:04:59.:05:01.

He has been accused of wanting to nanny people, even by some MPs in

:05:02.:05:06.

your own party. I think all that criticism of the nanny state went a

:05:07.:05:09.

long time ago. If we hadn't taken action to try to discourage people

:05:10.:05:13.

from smoking, the NHS would have probably been unaffordable by now.

:05:14.:05:16.

And there is a realisation that you cannot go on spending money on the

:05:17.:05:19.

outcome of poor health, without trying to do something about

:05:20.:05:22.

stopping that situation in the first place. One of these inactive people

:05:23.:05:28.

watching telly tonight, what do you say? I say you will have a 20 to 30%

:05:29.:05:34.

greater chance of dying prematurely and a 50% better chance of

:05:35.:05:37.

contracting a serious chronic illness if you don't get out and

:05:38.:05:40.

have some physical activity in your life. Do you belong to a gym? I

:05:41.:05:47.

don't belong to a gym. I run, it is much cheaper! You do not have to

:05:48.:05:51.

belong to a gym, it is about getting off the bus, stopping early and

:05:52.:05:55.

walking the rest of the way, etc. Mr Johnson, good to see you, thank you

:05:56.:05:58.

very much indeed. So, is it up to councils to try to

:05:59.:06:02.

make us active, if it improves health and saves the NHS money? Or

:06:03.:06:07.

is it up to the individual? Do you feel you are being now need into

:06:08.:06:13.

doing activity? Here are the contact details.

:06:14.:06:21.

What do you think of those figures you have heard ayes `` heard?

:06:22.:06:31.

A lorry driver has had an incredible escape after his lorry crashed on

:06:32.:06:39.

the M18 in East Yorkshire. The lorry slid out of control on the

:06:40.:06:42.

southbound carriageway after a tyre burst, causing it to fall off the

:06:43.:06:47.

Rawcliffe Bridge and set on fire. Crispin Rolfe is live in the

:06:48.:06:50.

newsroom. Crispin, how is the driver?

:06:51.:06:52.

He escaped without serious injuries, but as we saw in that picture, it

:06:53.:06:56.

could have been a different story. Humberside Police were called just

:06:57.:06:59.

after 3:30pm yesterday afternoon to the M18 southbound motorway, just

:07:00.:07:02.

after where it branches off from the M62. As you can see on this map,

:07:03.:07:09.

it's just where the road crosses a series of waterways. The area is

:07:10.:07:14.

called Rawcliffe Bridge. Officers say a tyre on the lorry burst. That

:07:15.:07:19.

caused the driver to lose control and his lorry strayed across the

:07:20.:07:23.

road, crashed over a bridge and fell some distance, stopping just short

:07:24.:07:29.

of a canal. It got worse because the vehicle, which was carrying

:07:30.:07:34.

fertiliser, then set on fire. The driver, who is 61, was taken in an

:07:35.:07:38.

Air Ambulance to Leeds General Infirmary. He was treated for cuts,

:07:39.:07:43.

bruises and a dislocated shoulder. The junction was closed for 12

:07:44.:07:49.

hours. We don't know who he is, but it's a routine work journey he won't

:07:50.:07:59.

forget. Amazing story, thank you very much.

:08:00.:08:03.

The police have detained four suspected illegal immigrants,

:08:04.:08:05.

including two children aged ten and two, after they were heard banging

:08:06.:08:08.

from the inside of a refrigerated lorry in Spalding. They were all

:08:09.:08:15.

from Iran. The two`year`old was taken to hospital, suffering from

:08:16.:08:19.

the effects of the cold. A man who killed his mother at her

:08:20.:08:23.

home in Dunholme near Lincoln while suffering a violent epileptic fit

:08:24.:08:26.

has been cleared of murder. A jury at Lincoln Crown Court decided Nigel

:08:27.:08:31.

Constable was insane. He now faces being detained indefinitely in a

:08:32.:08:36.

secure hospital. The new Bishop of Grimsby has been

:08:37.:08:39.

announced. The Reverend Canon Dr David Court is currently a vicar in

:08:40.:08:43.

Norfolk. The 55`year`old says he's honoured and excited to be working

:08:44.:08:46.

in Lincolnshire. He'll start work in September. We wish all the very

:08:47.:08:58.

best. When politicians climbed on a stage

:08:59.:09:01.

in the Lincolnshire town of Horncastle this morning for an

:09:02.:09:04.

hour`long BBC radio debate, there was only one subject they wanted to

:09:05.:09:08.

talk about. Immigration. It's a big issue in the run`up to the European

:09:09.:09:11.

elections in two weeks. Our political editor, Tim Iredale, was

:09:12.:09:13.

there. On a damp and drizzly day in

:09:14.:09:15.

Horncastle's Market Place, the candidates hoping to become Euro MPs

:09:16.:09:19.

for the East Midlands region were trying to offer the voters of

:09:20.:09:22.

Lincolnshire some blue sky thinking. Are there too many EU citizens

:09:23.:09:25.

coming to the UK? Listening in Boston was Jurate,

:09:26.:09:26.

immigration by other. We dealing with that problem. We have nothing

:09:27.:09:56.

against migrant workers coming into Lincolnshire on a four`month work

:09:57.:09:59.

permit or whatever is appropriate. What we do not want is people who

:10:00.:10:05.

come here, drift around and end up sleeping in doorways. As I fear they

:10:06.:10:09.

do in Boston. Other candidates offered a more positive view on the

:10:10.:10:14.

impact of migration on Lincolnshire. I have spoken to farmers here

:10:15.:10:16.

saying, why do you employ with Iranians and Latvians to bring the

:10:17.:10:18.

not have any expectation of migrant workers, they need to be paid the

:10:19.:10:44.

Minimum Wage. We need to stop the gangmaster is exploiting them. I am

:10:45.:10:49.

an immigrant. I think working `` I have been working here, I am

:10:50.:10:53.

integrated and I take offence. Iron and people are worried, I completely

:10:54.:10:58.

do. But it is not the immigrants who are the problem. It is a banking

:10:59.:11:02.

crisis that caused the recession. In Boston, Lithuanian teacher Jurate

:11:03.:11:05.

wasn't impressed with the tone of the debate. We are the same people

:11:06.:11:14.

as all other people. We work honestly, until we work hard and pay

:11:15.:11:20.

taxes, why did we have to be called migrants? Why does everybody speak

:11:21.:11:30.

about us as if we are different? The men and women hoping to become east

:11:31.:11:34.

midlands MEPs have had their say. You can see a full list of

:11:35.:11:42.

candidates on the BBC website. Those elections are in a couple of weeks.

:11:43.:11:52.

Still ahead, for 50 years, they have been waiting to passers`by, but

:11:53.:11:56.

could the end be in sight for the Leven bears? Everybody waves as they

:11:57.:12:02.

go past. What would it be like if they were not there? No fun.

:12:03.:12:14.

Tonight's photograph is of linking to, with some big clouds in the

:12:15.:12:20.

background. Taken by Brian Jeffery. Thank you for the picture. Every

:12:21.:12:26.

week, I go to the same petrol station and the sky pesters me, will

:12:27.:12:31.

you come in with me one week? That is all he wants. `` the sky. `` this

:12:32.:12:41.

man. Give and take! Some news about some big white clouds.

:12:42.:12:46.

There will be a fair few of them as we go through the week. Unsettled is

:12:47.:12:51.

certainly the theme. Some inkling it might settle down towards the end of

:12:52.:12:56.

next week. It will not be a wash`out, there will be some

:12:57.:12:59.

sunshine, but there will be a fair few showers. Some of them will be

:13:00.:13:04.

heavy, possibly thundery. All down to low pressure dominating. Also, a

:13:05.:13:09.

band of rain overnight tonight. Today we have had some heavy

:13:10.:13:12.

showers. They have now by and large fizzled out. A dry evening with

:13:13.:13:18.

spells of sunshine. Any show is dying out, it will be dry into this

:13:19.:13:22.

evening and fine. Later, a band of rain will spread from the South

:13:23.:13:26.

West. There could be some heavy rain, but not a cold night,

:13:27.:13:30.

temperatures down to around nine or ten. But it will be fairly blustery.

:13:31.:13:39.

The sun will rise at 5:09am. Here are the times of high water.

:13:40.:13:45.

Tomorrow morning, it will get off to a sunny start. Lots of rain around.

:13:46.:13:50.

Outbreaks of rain will clear the way northwards and it will brighten up

:13:51.:13:53.

with spells of sunshine. But we will also see a few showers, cropping up

:13:54.:13:57.

through the course of the day. Some of them will be slow`moving, heavy

:13:58.:14:01.

and thundery. Some faces may get quite a lot of rain. Temperatures

:14:02.:14:08.

are doing quite well, 16 or 17 Celsius. A gentle breeze from the

:14:09.:14:17.

South West. More breezy as we head into Sunday. Sunday, another day of

:14:18.:14:21.

bright and sunny spells but also a scattering of what could be heavy

:14:22.:14:26.

and thundery showers. The unsettled theme lasts into next week, sunny

:14:27.:14:28.

spells and scattered showers. spells and scattered

:14:29.:14:36.

I think you are on for a discount their! I cannot believe that.

:14:37.:14:40.

See you on Monday. Wheelie bins are one of the most

:14:41.:14:43.

complained about issues in modern Britain. And in one part of Hull,

:14:44.:14:48.

people are so sick of them permanently being left on the

:14:49.:14:50.

street, blocking pavements, they've started a petition demanding action

:14:51.:14:58.

from the council. Some cities trialled fines for people who don't

:14:59.:15:01.

return their bin to their property, but in this area there is no

:15:02.:15:05.

penalty. I've been speaking to an expert on good manners, who says

:15:06.:15:09.

leaving out your bin is symptom of a "me, me, me generation". First,

:15:10.:15:15.

Leanne Brown reports. From the street and back onto your

:15:16.:15:18.

property ` that's what you're supposed to do when your bins have

:15:19.:15:23.

been emptied. But it's claimed many residents in the Avenues area of

:15:24.:15:32.

Hull aren't doing that. There `` it can be a bit messy if they are not

:15:33.:15:37.

emptied often. Do you always take away your bin? Always, taken in the

:15:38.:15:44.

same day they come. You put it in your back way. A local campaign

:15:45.:15:50.

group wants action and they say they not only look unsightly, but they

:15:51.:15:56.

are unsafe. We are concerned they are causing a hazard to people in

:15:57.:16:00.

the street. So imagine if you are a mother trying to push a pram down

:16:01.:16:04.

the street or someone who uses a wheelchair or something like that,

:16:05.:16:07.

it must be terrible to weave your way in and out. Elsewhere in the

:16:08.:16:10.

country ` take Leicester, for example ` they issue fines of ?110

:16:11.:16:14.

to people who leave their bins in the street. In parts of Lancashire,

:16:15.:16:17.

like Preston, your bin could be confiscated. And in London last

:16:18.:16:21.

year, a man had to pay ?15,000 in legal costs after blocking his

:16:22.:16:31.

neighbour's driveway with his bin. But at this blind institute, they

:16:32.:16:37.

say fining people is not the answer. It is much more about educating

:16:38.:16:40.

people and people having more thought and awareness. We have used

:16:41.:16:45.

something like simulation spectacles, where people can

:16:46.:16:49.

simulate various eye conditions. It really is quite opposing when you

:16:50.:16:52.

put those on and you realise how difficult it is. Harry is one of the

:16:53.:16:56.

members who booked into a bend this morning. I have cut myself on a bin

:16:57.:17:02.

and on a wing mirror, there is too much of it. Especially along the

:17:03.:17:06.

side streets, where the pavements are particularly narrow. They are a

:17:07.:17:12.

menace. At the moment with no reprimand for leaving your bin out,

:17:13.:17:15.

it is hoped people will put them back where they belong. We will be

:17:16.:17:20.

asking for your thoughts on this in a moment.

:17:21.:17:23.

Leanne is on a street where bins have been left out. Will the council

:17:24.:17:27.

listen to the campaigners who want the bins moved?

:17:28.:17:32.

Well, Hull City Council say they are happy to meet with the action group

:17:33.:17:37.

to discuss their concerns. But they say they have already introduced

:17:38.:17:40.

several schemes, like the identification and numbering of

:17:41.:17:44.

beans. To put this into context, last year they received 378

:17:45.:17:51.

completes about bins, but with 7.8 Lee and collections, they say it is

:17:52.:17:55.

a small issue for them. `` 7.8 million. But they say they are

:17:56.:18:00.

including more people to put `` encouraging more people to put back

:18:01.:18:01.

their bins. I've been speaking to William

:18:02.:18:04.

Hanson, who's an expert in etiquette and good manners. I asked him what

:18:05.:18:08.

he thought about people who leave their bins out. I think these people

:18:09.:18:11.

are being very selfish. We are living in quite a "me, me, me"

:18:12.:18:15.

society and good manners are selfless, they are about other

:18:16.:18:18.

people. Taking your bins in and looking after your part of the road

:18:19.:18:21.

is part of your responsibility. What do you think about these people who

:18:22.:18:25.

think it is fine just to leave the bins out, not put them away? It is a

:18:26.:18:30.

little bit arrogant of them to think they can do what they want. If they

:18:31.:18:34.

don't like the rules that come with suburban living, don't live in

:18:35.:18:37.

suburbia, go and live in the middle of the sticks! OK, you are the

:18:38.:18:41.

master. How do we go about telling our neighbours, somebody we might

:18:42.:18:44.

not actually know or somebody who might be selfish, how do we go about

:18:45.:18:48.

telling them to put the bins away and get their act together? Well,

:18:49.:18:51.

don't go in with all guns blazing. Go in and be perfectly pleasant and

:18:52.:18:55.

charming, a nice, big smile to them, ask them if they could possibly move

:18:56.:18:59.

them and point out the rules in a nice, unpatronising way. Hopefully,

:19:00.:19:02.

they will do that. If needs be, the homeowners' association needs to get

:19:03.:19:17.

in contact with them. Do you have some bad bin neighbours? There is

:19:18.:19:19.

the e`mail address to get in touch with. You can also text us.

:19:20.:19:25.

New penguins have attracted huge crowds to The Deep aquarium in Hull

:19:26.:19:29.

since their arrival in March. There have been regular long queues to get

:19:30.:19:34.

in, with visitor numbers up by 50%. Now The Deep has picked up more

:19:35.:19:41.

penguins. You have to be old to get that one! Caroline Bilton met their

:19:42.:19:44.

keepers to see how they are settling in to a life thousands of miles from

:19:45.:19:50.

their natural home. Settling into their new home, the new Penguins

:19:51.:19:53.

were certainly showing no signs of jet lag today after their 5000 mile

:19:54.:20:01.

journey from Texas. You are still playing with the ball. Somewhere in

:20:02.:20:08.

this group are Stanley, Brian and Diane, and Hector is the man who

:20:09.:20:13.

have come `` has come with them. These guys are characters. These

:20:14.:20:19.

guys are the Comic Relief. They will always be doing something that will

:20:20.:20:22.

make you laugh, or do something that you never thought was possible. In

:20:23.:20:29.

the `` in just two months, 115,000 people have been to see the penguins

:20:30.:20:33.

here, that is up 50% on the same time two years ago. They clearly

:20:34.:20:37.

have what it takes to join the crowds. `` draw in. It is great to

:20:38.:20:47.

see them playing around. They are full of energy, all over the place.

:20:48.:20:51.

We have been to see them before. But we thought we would come back again

:20:52.:20:57.

to see them. They are adorable! We spent about ?600,000 and we have

:20:58.:21:03.

made that back already and raised ?40,000 for the Penguin

:21:04.:21:06.

conservation. So, that has been a great payback. On average, they get

:21:07.:21:12.

a couple of feeds a day. About 20 of these each feed.

:21:13.:21:16.

Attention is not just paid to their diet. Time is also spent every day

:21:17.:21:21.

providing them with entertainment. Eleanor is in there at the moment

:21:22.:21:26.

with actor. It is like a little Red Bull on a piece of string. `` with

:21:27.:21:33.

Hector. `` red ball. Some of the penguins really enjoy. So the family

:21:34.:21:36.

is complete and the penguins will spend the next 30 days in

:21:37.:21:40.

quarantine. The next adventure will be the opening of the doors to their

:21:41.:21:45.

personal balcony, overlooking the River Humber. They did not have that

:21:46.:21:50.

in Texas! Back to last night's story on the

:21:51.:21:53.

mother who says benefit changes mean she's now being charged for the

:21:54.:21:57.

spare room in her council house that is used by her son when he's not

:21:58.:22:04.

away with the RAF. A large response. Carole says, "As an ex`Forces wife

:22:05.:22:08.

and a mother of a serviceman, this annoys me. Service personnel should

:22:09.:22:11.

be exempt from the bedroom tax. The accommodation when they're away is

:22:12.:22:14.

not home." Rachel says, "I work in housing for

:22:15.:22:18.

a local authority and the bedroom tax is the best idea this Government

:22:19.:22:22.

has had. A spare room costs about ?11 a week and if you are on full

:22:23.:22:26.

housing benefit, that is the only rent you have to pay."

:22:27.:22:29.

Chris says, "The bedroom tax does not make better use of the council

:22:30.:22:33.

housing stock. We have been on the waiting list for a smaller property

:22:34.:22:37.

for two years. But we are forced to pay for spare bedrooms that we are

:22:38.:22:43.

willing to give up." Reference thereto the fact there are

:22:44.:22:47.

not enough properties. Thank you very much for all of those.

:22:48.:22:50.

The Hull FC coach, Lee Radford, says he's had a tough week "picking up

:22:51.:22:54.

his players" after their defeat by Wakefield on Sunday. His side host

:22:55.:22:57.

last season's Super League champions Wigan at the KC Stadium this

:22:58.:23:00.

evening. There's currently a four point difference between the two

:23:01.:23:04.

teams in the table. And there'll be commentary of that

:23:05.:23:08.

game on BBC Radio Humberside. That's Hull FC v Wigan tonight. And

:23:09.:23:14.

tomorrow evening it's Hull KR at Salford, where kick`off is at 6pm.

:23:15.:23:20.

The Hull City manager, Steve Bruce, admits his players have taken their

:23:21.:23:23.

eye off the ball as they look forward to the FA Cup final. In a

:23:24.:23:27.

rare outspoken moment, Bruce admitted recent performances, like

:23:28.:23:29.

this defeat to Manchester United, had been affected by the prospect of

:23:30.:23:32.

meeting Arsenal next week. That's even though Premier League safety

:23:33.:23:37.

has been secured. The big thing I've got to stress is that we still want

:23:38.:23:42.

to make sure we get a result against Everton. Because as I've said

:23:43.:23:45.

repeatedly, a couple of places up the division can mean another player

:23:46.:23:48.

next year, so it's still all to play for.

:23:49.:23:52.

You can hear the game on BBC Radio Humberside's FM frequency this

:23:53.:24:00.

Sunday. For 50 years, two stuffed bears who

:24:01.:24:04.

sit at the window of a house at Leven in East Yorkshire have

:24:05.:24:08.

attracted a small army of fans. It was a tradition for children to wave

:24:09.:24:12.

at the bears on car journeys to the seaside, and people even sent them

:24:13.:24:17.

Christmas cards. But now their house is up for sale and their future is

:24:18.:24:26.

uncertain, as Sarah Walton reports. Held up with a piece of string `

:24:27.:24:30.

these bears have been waving their fluffy paws from the landing window

:24:31.:24:37.

for 48 years. Teddy bears were originally put in the window in

:24:38.:24:43.

1966, when this House was built. As the children were travelling with

:24:44.:24:47.

their parents after the coast, you would notice them in the window and

:24:48.:24:51.

they would wave to them. It is not just the children, it is their

:24:52.:24:54.

parents as well, and grandparents. They are still waiting! This was

:24:55.:25:00.

Christmas 1991. They've captured the imagination of children everywhere.

:25:01.:25:02.

They've even received letters and cards addressed to them. When they

:25:03.:25:09.

first came, one of my sons had a small bear and we put that in the

:25:10.:25:14.

window. We got a card, congratulating us on our expanding

:25:15.:25:18.

family. One time, we took them down when we were decorating and we got a

:25:19.:25:21.

card welcoming them back. They really have become a part of village

:25:22.:25:26.

life. They have just always been there. They are lovely. Everybody

:25:27.:25:30.

waves as they go past. I cracked what would it be like if they were

:25:31.:25:36.

not there? It would be awful. My children and grandchildren have

:25:37.:25:40.

grown up with the teddy bear house. I have distorted that has been the

:25:41.:25:44.

teddy bear house. `` I have always thought of that. But their future is

:25:45.:25:48.

in jeopardy, because the house is up for sale So if the right buyer is

:25:49.:25:52.

found for the house, the bears will be still be waving back at drivers

:25:53.:25:56.

for many years to come and stay in what has been their home for five

:25:57.:25:59.

decades. I hope they will keep them because it is a tradition, don't

:26:00.:26:02.

interfere with anybody's rules or bedrooms or anything. I hope they

:26:03.:26:04.

do. We will try and talk them into keeping it because it would upset a

:26:05.:26:07.

lot of people if they went. So if the right buyer is found, the Bears

:26:08.:26:10.

will still be waving back at drivers for many years to come, and stay in

:26:11.:26:13.

what has been their home for five decades.

:26:14.:26:19.

The producer just told me he used a wave at the teddy bears as well. He

:26:20.:26:23.

was 28 at the time! If you have a story you think we should know

:26:24.:26:30.

about, send us an e`mail. Let's get a recap of the national

:26:31.:26:33.

and regional headlines. Rolf Harris goes on trial for

:26:34.:26:36.

alleged sexual offences against young girls.

:26:37.:26:39.

Exercise more or risk an early death ` the warning to thousands of women

:26:40.:26:42.

classed as inactive. Tomorrow's weather ` a cloudy, wet

:26:43.:26:45.

and breezy start. Sunny spells developing, but a showery day, some

:26:46.:26:48.

of which could be thundery. Top Temperature 13 Celsius.

:26:49.:27:00.

Response on the subject of fitness and whether we should join the gym

:27:01.:27:04.

and get active. Margaret Spalding says, I walk a fair bit, I would

:27:05.:27:09.

love to go to a gym but living on pension credit, it is impossible.

:27:10.:27:14.

From Peter, too many people do not exercise enough. The council should

:27:15.:27:18.

have a free gym at weekends to encourage young and old to go to the

:27:19.:27:21.

gym. We were also talking about bins. Phil says, it should be the

:27:22.:27:26.

duty of the dustbin men to take the bins out around the back and not

:27:27.:27:29.

that of the customers. They used to collect and return to the back door.

:27:30.:27:34.

Finally, this is from Mark, who is a bin man and he says, a tenor, we get

:27:35.:27:43.

the blame for the bins left out. `` ?10. See you on Monday, take care.
