claims could be made against a local council by people who've
fallen on controversial new paving. It's called a shared area,
where people on foot, on bike and in vehicles are supposed
to move in harmony, but there's been We highlighted concerns
about changes to this main town centre route in Grimsby back
in January. Now there there are calls
for a review into the works. Emma, can you show us what
people say the problem is? Now all sins, no signs, everybody
has to mingle and get all of that. It has a part paving. It is this
small part, which is causing all of the problems. I had a big lump on my
head. I broke my nose. The injury suffered by this woman when she
slipped on eve optionally invisible kilt. It is an accident waiting to
happen. They should open their eyes. She was here in Grimsby when the
accident happened. It is designed so that vehicles, and pedestrians can
navigate the earlier. You are taking your life in your hands. The car
drivers do not know real bear. This man is registered as quaint and has
had difficulties negotiating the earlier. I have to look up words. It
makes my eyes all funny. Her husband broke his wrist. I am in agony. If I
try to move it the pain is ridiculous. This weekend work began
to replace some of the paving but the council has defended the plan.
?7 million has been spent and that has been some teething trouble with
this. E`petition has now been started to the council to the
design. We have spoken to some solace of those who said it is very
difficult to claim against the council. They have sent that the
average claim if successful would be between two and ?5,000.
Ben Hamilton`Baillie is a street designer who's created shared spaces
He says people will get used to them and grown to like them.
I asked him why he thinks they are a good idea.
Certainly in most towns or cities where we need to accomodate all
sorts of activites, as well as the movement of traffic, share space
But if people are falling over and injuring themselves it doesn't
Well, people fall over and injure themselves every day in every day.
If that's to do with the streets being shared is another question.
But we've had pavements and roads all of my life,
Why do we have to be trendy and get rid of them?
In any Accident and Emergency unit, any day of the week,
you'll find several people, particularly elderly, who have
But they're saying they're dazzled by the pattern
Aren't we being a bit dismissive of people who've got problems?
Clearly, the design of the kerb is very important.
We put a lot of effort into that, to make sure they're as visible
as possible without being a barrier between pedestrian
I don't know the particular scheme in Grimsby, I'm afraid.
Perhaps it's not been designed as well as it might, I can't say.
One of the people injured said she would like ?10,000 in compensation.
Do you think people should be compensated?
It's a dangerous road when you assume that every time
an accident happens, or a slip occurs, it's somebody else's fault.
But trips and falls happen every day of the

At stake are peoples homes, roads, farmland and caravan parks.
Our correspondent Paul Murphy has the story.
Defending communities from the sea is a never ending challenge on
But some here have no defences at all ` including caravan parks
If this Econ is round the back then it is sensitive. I am not very
happy. If you are insecure. The council constantly monitors
erosion on this coast. But now it wants to look at two
specific communities at higher risk. The areas being studied are
from south of Hornsea down to Mappleton, where the council
is concerned about caravan parks And south of Withernsea where there
is an undefended housing estate, a caravan site and Yorkshire
Water's water treatment works. At this cliff top caravan park in
Hornsea they lose large chunks of We are very concerned. We are unable
to replace the places that we lose. It brings six ?7,000 a year into the
economy. The council is making one thing clear, protecting everything
is not an option. It is not environmentally acceptable. To be
realistic it is not going to happen. You have some tough choices? Very
tough. The sea is always the winner
in this contest. But the hope is that
at least some of the vulnerable communities along this shoreline
coast can get better protection. An Iranian family who were found
in the back of a refrigerated lorry in Spalding
have been discharged from hospital. The couple and their two young
children were discovered last Thursday after people heard
them banging while the lorry was Hull may be gripped by FA Cup fever,
but there's another contest being played out on the streets
of the city. Local elections take place a week
on Thursday and Hull's politicians are campaigning for votes ahead
of polling day. Here's our

politics isn't the only game But for the city's politicians,
the stakes are always high Labour council leader Steve Brady

are the city of culture. We have got ?5 million of much`needed council
money and we have put that into the docks. They were impressed.
In recent years, the chips have been down for

not a bad run. Mostly dry with some sunshine. High pressure coming in.

breach down. That is going to be some nice weather in the next few
days. Some thunderstorms in the short term. Risk of localised
flooding. The skies were clear from the North with temperatures coming
in at six or seven Celsius. The high water time is just after succeeding.
It should be a lovely start to the day. The temperatures will rise.

during the winter can have ?5,000. It's for the clean`up
and flood proofing for the future. My message to
the country today is this: Money is no object
in this relief effort. Whatever money is needed
for it will be spent. But the BBC has found out that
of 600 people flooded in Boston in Lincolnshire only 23 have
applied for the cash. Jake Zuckerman reports
from the town. When flooding her Boston last year,
the government promised to help. Properties could apply for up to
?5,000. But so far only 23 households have applied for the
money. Councils are worried that hundreds must risk missing out. I

would want you to come forward. This woman is still feeling the effects.
We have water coming through. The money would be so useful. The
Citizens Advice Bureau is offering to help people fell in the forms. I
am concerned that people are not claiming what is due to them. It is
wrote about ?4 million from the government. I want people to get all
of that. Many of these houses were affected. The money from the
government would help for improvements like Windows and raised
political sockets. The challenge for the council is to make sure that all
those eligible claim the money. An incredible response to our story

these group of protesters? I am in the middle of studying for an

he owes it to them. I do not want them asking me what I did about it.
I don't want to have that on my conscience. This woman has a

clearly defined. If you are mixing them you will get accidents. Dan
