Good evening, and welcome to BBC Look North.

Their are torrential downpours, but what about the rest of the week?
Join me for the forecast. Anti`fracking campaigners
from around the country have set up camp outside an oil drilling site
in East Yorkshire. They arrived last night at
Crawberry Hill near Walkington, despite assurances
from the company working there that That's the controversial process
of injecting high pressure water into shale rock to break it up
and release gas, which can be used as a source
of energy for homes and businesses. Despite the promise
of cheaper bills, not everyone Caroline Bilton is
at the site this evening. What message are the protestors
trying to get across? The protesters are protesting over
the national issue that is bragging. They've chosen to pitch their tents
here at a site where at the moment, no fracking is taking place, and the
company that owns this site says it has no intention of doing so. This
comes off the strong message of the government that fracking is the
future of the UK, and is helping to fan the flames of distrust. The
protesters are getting their message across early before they take his
company changes its mind. Setting up camp, these protesters
are planning on being here a while, and they have come from all parts
of the country to get their message What we've seen throughout all
of the communities we've gone to so far is that the other 50% don't
even know what this issue is. They just think they will get
cheaper energy bills, But they've chosen to set up camp
outside a site owned by a company which categorically states
it has no intention of fracking. There will be no fracking in either
of these places, regardless They are trying to claim it's not
fracking They only have permission to drill
for conventional oil and gas here. If they want to do more, they have
to apply for further licences. It's messages like this
from Government that are driving The government says fracking has a
future, so how is this situation going to be resolved? Some of the
protesters have devoted their lives to spreading the message about
fracking. Then here is one such person. How long are you willing to
stand this out for? Witham I will be here until fracking is banned in the
UK. The government says this is the future. Are you fighting a losing
battle? This is not the future. It is not safe. How long will you be
her? I will be here until it is outlawed. David Cameron will have to
ban fracking. This company says they will not be fracking here. Do you
think they are lying? Won they are lying. The only difference is they
are not using sand. The rest is wordplay. You have been here through
the thunderstorms today. You will see this through to the end. The
company saying they have no company saying they have no
intention of stopping what they are doing here, and the protesters say
they have no intention of leaving. Thank you very much. We would like
to know what you think about this. Other protesters doing the right
thing? The company repeatedly stated they are not fracking on these
sites. The e`mail address for your thoughts on this one.
Why East Coast resorts are being told to get
The man in charge of transport in Hull says new bus lane cameras
being installed on two of the city's busiest roads are NOT
The number plate recognition cameras are being trialled
because the council says motorists are ignoring the restrictions.
However, some drivers have told us today they don't think
This wrote in Hull, an area where motorists are set to break bus lane
rules and public transport. Within a few weeks, new cameras here will
catch drivers who use them to skip rush`hour jams. It is not an
exercise in making money for the council. Far from it. We want to
know whether there is a need for these cameras on a permanent basis
or whether there is not a need. The best thing I would say to motorists
during this trial is that they should avoid the bus lane. The bus
companies have been asking for enforcement to keep timetables
reliable. We don't want motorists to be fined, we just want them out of
the bus lanes. Many towns and cities have bus lanes which are enforced by
cameras, and how really does not need to be different. It will
certainly help us operate more efficiently. Despite being in place
for a number of years, there is still confusion about the use of
these bus lanes. They only operate a few hours a day, with traffic going
in and out of the city during rush hour. Despite being entitled to use
them, most drivers are staying out of them, Inc causing annoyance and
frustrations the summer. When you come in and out of town, so many
people don't know when. It should be more clear. It seems to be a quick
way of money making. The I think they should because there are a lot
of drivers who do drive in the bus lanes. I think it is important.
Stains have been controversial. Liverpool is coming to the end of a
trial in which got rid of them altogether. In March, Birmingham
City council reviewed 18,000 disputed bus lane finds. Tribunal 's
downsides were clear enough. The RAC says enforcement should be fair. If
the council will make money from these cameras, they were to
motorists to have operators with the discretion to actually understand a
minor incursion of the zone was not intended as someone trying to break
the rules. The council is supported by the main Liberal Democrat
opposition and says it will assess the results before deciding whether
a wider roll`out would benefit the city.
Earlier, I spoke to Martin Mancey, who's in charge of transport
in Hull, and asked him how much of a problem there is with car
We have had complaints from bus drivers and motorists. The whole
point of this trial is to establish exactly how big a problem this
season. Then we can determine whether or not cameras on a
permanent basis are required. So I go into a bus lane, had to `` how
long do I have to be there to get find? You shouldn't be there in at
all. If the camera catches you in the bus lane during the hours of
operation, you are liable for a fine. What will be the find? You

dispute that. There is a small dispute that. There is a small
number of motorists that break the rules. The bus lanes operate for
limited periods during the day. They would not be sufficient numbers to
justify the allegation this is a cash cow. Is this the bus companies
the shots? Sometimes you see other lanes you could go into, and the bus
doesn't go in there. We are working with the bus companies. We want an
effective, reliable public transport system, and this is one way of
ensuring the bus operators can operate to timetable. Will it work?
That remains to be seen. We can't prejudge the outcome of the trial.
This is going on in other towns and cities. I caught `` I got caught
doing this in Leeds. Ella mac in other cities, they have far more bus
lanes. How is only operate at the peaks. But we don't really have a
peek? We don't have much of a rush hour. It is not Leeds or Manchester.
I think motorists using Beverley Road coming into town, they feel
there is a lot of congestion. The average motorist watching TV, or
they say this is good or bad? I think the average law`abiding
motorist will have no problem. The small minority of selfish drivers,
that is a different problem. Thank you very much will stop another one
you might like to comment on. Is the council being too heavy`handed? Or
is it right that drivers who use the bus line should be analysed? If you
want to get in touch, there is the e`mail.
Fire`fighters in parts of Lincolnshire will also be

But the Fire Brigades Union says it has concerns.
We think it will be good for communities in Lincolnshire,

Seaside resorts on the East Coast are being told they can no longer
rely on their "fish and chips" culture.
Instead, they should help the local shellfish industry by offering
At present, 95% of locally`sourced shellfish is exported, but industry
leaders have met in Bridlington today to try to change that.
Our business correspondent, Paul Murphy, was there.
East Coast lobster and crab is worth millions to the local economy, but
it is more likely to be exported to the restaurants of Paris or Madrid
And to many in this industry, it is a cause for growing frustration.
95% of my lobster that I catch ends up on the continent,
which I think is a crying shame when we import tonnes of lobsters
There is something not quite right somewhere.
Today, shellfish took centre stage at a food conference
as the industry plotted to get more of it onto local dinner tables.
This culture of cod and chips, that's what we expect from seafood,
and when the shellfish industry came onto the scene,
So nothing is being done to promote it locally up to this point.
Taking shellfish to the people, a mission to win hearts and bellies.
It doesn't look very appetising, but it does taste beautiful.
They are missing out on what is on their doorstep.
This is world`class quality local produce, and the people of East
Bridlington and Yorkshire should be appreciating and enjoying it.
And there is a belief that this is about more than just food.
You come to a place and you remember what was there, and if you come to
East Yorkshire and you have crab and lobster, at least you will remember.
Expect to see more of these creatures on local menus
All part of the campaign to promote the delicacy on our doorstep.

Don't forget, as the weather gets better, send us a picture. This was
taken by Chris James. Thank you for that. Good evening, young man.
Always the bridge in the background. You were spotted on the bike this
weekend. Did you have a nice trip? I don't know why you don't use the
bus. I don't know what is so funny about me being on a bike. Let's the
weather. It is unsettled. Scattered spells of showers. They will be less
widespread than they have been today. We have had thunderstorms
with lightning and howl. Here is the reason why. We have a trough of low
pressure tomorrow. High pressure will build on Wednesday and from
midweek to Thursday and Friday, and much of the weekend, a lot of fine
and bright and warm weather is expected. You could see the speckle
of clouds on the satellite. They have been some meaty showers. There
is a big one coming through hole right now. There is another swathe
of showers and run the wash. These will keep going. Torrential
downpours. They will lose energy overnight, but there will be showers
left by dawn tomorrow morning. Lowest temperatures at seven or
eight Celsius. Eight Celsius is 46 Fahrenheit. The sun will rise in the
morning at 5:04am. There are your tide times. A lot of cloud hosting.
Still some showers from the overnight period. They will split
southwards and fizzle out. Sky is bright and from the North with
sunshine and scattered showers into the afternoon. One or two will be
heavy, but they will be less widespread. Once we have those gone,
it will become dry. Let's look at those top temperatures. Coming in at
around 13 or 14 Celsius. Then from Wednesday, for the rest of the week,
it is fine, bright and warm. This does not get you out of trouble. I
went out at six o'clock when the weather show was on just to miss it.
See you tomorrow. A World War II film made
in Lincolnshire in 1941 is being re`released to help raise money for
war veterans and their families. Scenes in One Of Our Aircraft Is
Missing were filmed in Boston and It's one of a series of war films
being re`issued to raise money Here's our arts correspondent,
Anne`Marie Tasker. It's supposed to be wartime Holland,

everybody has heard of them. It is really exciting to be linked
to here in Boston in Lincolnshire. But in the '40s, this film
was more than just a story. Aviation historians say it was
a tool for propaganda. You could nearly buy two Lancasters
with the budget from that film, but in the box office in dollars,
it did over $600,000. But most importantly,
the only return they were interested in was a boost in morale
of the British public. It is hoped this project will raise
?25,000, in part thanks to Lincolnshire's
film and wartime heritage. That is great. Let's hope it raises
plenty of money. Hull City manager Steve Bruce says
their disappointing end to the Premier League shouldn't affect
their performance The Tigers lost 2`0 at home to
Everton at the KC Stadium yesterday, and only finished a couple of
places above the relegation zone. Their manager says the poor run
shouldn't carry over into Saturday's final at Wembley ` something
the Everton manager agrees with. The FA Cup final will look
after itself, I'm just disappointed with how we've
limped along for the past few weeks, because some of the performances
have certainly not been us. It has given the team
a real tactical know`how, Hull Kingston Rovers earned
a point with a draw against Salford The Robins in blue led
at half`time after tries from Kris Welham and Kevin Larroyer,
but they couldn't hold on. Hull FC were beaten 16`44 by
Wigan Warriors at the KC Stadium. A try from Gareth Ellis helped
the black`and`whites to an early lead, but Wigan were
ultimately the stronger team. Their next match is Derby
against Hull KR Normally it plays host to
Premier League football and Super League Rugby, but today
the KC Stadium in Hull has been home Our reporter, Crispin Rolfe,
has been to find out more. A ball on a football pitch, hardly
surprising until you see the hooves. Quickly returning in defence. Jo
North coming through. This is KC Stadium, posting polo at a football
arena for the first time ever. For those watching, they would be used
to seeing something different. Still in play! The play here is
tremendous. It is something else. Awesome to see them ride into a
stadium like this. You think it is very different to the grass Apollo
we are used to. You would normally associate this with football or
rugby, but this is a ring up all over the first time at KC Stadium.
It is a once in a generation experience. The pitch is being
relayed for the first time in 12 years. That is the only reason the
horses hooves are allowed to get on it. You like the football pitch is
being replaced at ?1 million, so we thought was the perfect opportunity
to trash the pitch playing polo won it. It is the sport of princesses ``
printers, but allows a left`handed Prince William to play with his
right hand. For others, the tougher challenge is keeping the horses
fresh. You have to be fit and ready. You can't have much of a break.
We're not at the KC, Apollo would normally be faster and more furious.
On a pitch ten times bigger with horses going 30 mph on the ball 100
mph. It is the fastest team sport in the world. If you have a story we
should know about, tell us about it. Let's get a recap of the
national and regional headlines. A video is released which appears to
show more than a hundred of the missing Nigerian School girls
kidnapped by Islamic militants. Tomorrow:
Anti`fracking campaigners set up camp in East Yorkshire and say they
will stay until practice is banned. Tomorrow's whether:
A cloudy start in places, brightening up with sunny spells,
although heavy showers are possible in the afternoon.
Maximum temperature 14 Celsius. Thank you for your responses on
fracking. The drilling company involved have repeatedly stated that
they are absolutely not fracking. A response then Festival. How about
asking this bunch if they have jobs and are paying taxes or are just
living off the backs of the rest of us? Who could do with cheaper fuel?
That was after we saw the protesters. The Luddites protesting
finally got real. The future of this country is at stake, and the
government should encourage this and was the exploration companies to
escalate this. Mark says when the protesters believe the site, they
will leave a lot of the tough for us locals to clear up. On the subject
of cameras in bus lanes, Carol says most of whole's bus lanes are only
bus lanes for 1.5 hours. It is ridiculous to install cameras which
will be unused for most of the day. The major problem is motorists who
never use the bus lanes even when they are permanent. Join me on the
radio tomorrow if you can. Have a nice evening.
