in the Turkish mine disaster has risen, over 200 dead and 120 are

still trapped. We

Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:00.:00:00.

Calls for an increase in the speed limit for lorries on one of our

:00:00.:00:20.

busiest roads. The driving is dangerous on

:00:21.:00:23.

occasions and the crossing by overtaking vehicles.

:00:24.:00:27.

The Grimsby MP Austin Mitchell is reprimanded following a tweet

:00:28.:00:30.

A little boy with a serious heart condition is chosen to walk out at

:00:31.:00:35.

How long we'll be fine weather last? Join me for the latest.

:00:36.:00:53.

Campaigners say big changes are needed to a major route through

:00:54.:00:56.

Lorry drivers want the speed limit for them on the A15

:00:57.:01:04.

north of Lincoln to be increased from 40 to 50 miles an hour.

:01:05.:01:08.

They say it will help stop impatient car drivers taking risks

:01:09.:01:11.

Slow lorries causing long tailbacks on rule roads. It is a daily

:01:12.:01:25.

frustration on the A15 in Lincolnshire for car and lorry

:01:26.:01:31.

drivers. There is a car overtaking on a blind corner. This haulier says

:01:32.:01:37.

if lorries were allowed to go faster on some stretches, it would stop

:01:38.:01:40.

dangerous overtaking by impatient motorists. On the long straights

:01:41.:01:46.

where visibility is good, if they put it up to 50, the cars that are

:01:47.:01:52.

behind that of restricted, everything quill move. The speed

:01:53.:01:57.

limit for heavy goods vehicles on single carriageway is is 40 miles an

:01:58.:02:01.

hour. The government is carrying out a consultation on raising it to 45

:02:02.:02:09.

or 50 miles an hour. The change would affect 280,000 vehicles. They

:02:10.:02:16.

overtake on bends, it is dangerous. A lorry is a long way, if you have

:02:17.:02:21.

got to go slow, you have got to go slow. Lorry drivers in Scotland will

:02:22.:02:26.

be able to travel at 50 as part of a trial, something this man wants to

:02:27.:02:31.

be tested here, after he was caught speeding in his lorry. I have

:02:32.:02:35.

measured on the stretch we are talking about summer you will get 12

:02:36.:02:40.

overtakes in that time from cars, one of which will be over double

:02:41.:02:45.

white lines, and it is very dangerous. I thought I would test

:02:46.:02:50.

out how long it takes to get from Lincoln along this road to

:02:51.:02:53.

Scunthorpe, and how much of the journey is spent stuck behind a

:02:54.:02:59.

lorry. It was not long before I joined a tailback. I have completed

:03:00.:03:06.

the journey pretty quickly, 22 minutes, an average speed of 50

:03:07.:03:12.

miles an hour. For half of the time, I was behind a lorry, which was

:03:13.:03:16.

clearly going faster than 40 miles an hour. The vehicle handling will

:03:17.:03:23.

be compromised, and putting the vehicles into the overtaking

:03:24.:03:26.

manoeuvres for longer is a risk to other road users, so we do not feel

:03:27.:03:31.

it is a good idea. Some motorists argued the best way to improve

:03:32.:03:35.

safety on this route is to turn the road into a jaw carriageway.

:03:36.:03:40.

Do you think the speed limit for lorries on single carriageways

:03:41.:03:43.

The government has been consulting on this since 2012. We are expecting

:03:44.:03:56.

the findings later this year. It is unlikely there will be any changes

:03:57.:04:03.

soon. This is one stretch of the A15 which lorry drivers they would be

:04:04.:04:08.

safe to travel at 50. It is wide and straight for a good mile or so, we

:04:09.:04:13.

have seen some queues here this evening, and the argument goes that

:04:14.:04:17.

if you put up speed limits, that cuts congestion, speeds up journey

:04:18.:04:21.

times, and that is all good for business. It is worth remembering

:04:22.:04:26.

that the County of Lincolnshire has no motorways, so this is a hot

:04:27.:04:29.

topic, because it can be slow getting around.

:04:30.:04:39.

Should the speed limit the increased? Would you be happy to see

:04:40.:04:46.

lorries going faster? We will have some of your thoughts before we

:04:47.:04:47.

finish at 7pm. The minor parties hoping to make

:04:48.:05:06.

a mark in next week's The Labour MP for Great Grimsby

:05:07.:05:10.

Austin Mitchell has refused to apologise for comparing a US

:05:11.:05:18.

pharmaceutical company to a rapist The Minister For Women Nicky Morgan

:05:19.:05:23.

has described the tweet as deeply offensive and called for the Labour

:05:24.:05:29.

leader Ed Miliband to take action. Mr Mitchell has dismissed the

:05:30.:05:33.

controversy as a storm in a teacup. Earlier, I spoke to Mr Mitchell and

:05:34.:05:44.

asked him whether describing a drugs I am made to feel like Jeremy

:05:45.:06:03.

Clarkson, I did not anticipate this. One of the definitions of rape in

:06:04.:06:06.

the Oxford in this dictionary is to plunder, and that is what I fear

:06:07.:06:13.

will happen to AstraZeneca. You talk about the rape of the countryside

:06:14.:06:23.

and the rainforests, but I have had abuse landing on my head. Others do

:06:24.:06:29.

not see it as a waste of time. It is, because people are missing the

:06:30.:06:37.

point. In Twitter, it is difficult to express what I think is going to

:06:38.:06:46.

the `` going to be the fate of AstraZeneca, subjugation to a

:06:47.:06:50.

foreign company, cutting off research, and weakening of the

:06:51.:06:56.

company, in 140 characters. I did it graphically. Perhaps I should have

:06:57.:07:02.

used the word rapacious. Nicky Morgan has said, if you do not

:07:03.:07:06.

apologise, you should be suspended. Do you want to apologise? All of the

:07:07.:07:13.

people who talk about the HST raping the countryside in the same mode,

:07:14.:07:18.

bigots that it's want to make a party political point, most of the

:07:19.:07:25.

people are conservatives, they want to distract attention from the fact

:07:26.:07:28.

that AstraZeneca is going to be taken over. Do you want to apologise

:07:29.:07:33.

on the TV now, so everybody sees it? Note. I do apologise for

:07:34.:07:44.

inconvenience in Ed Miliband, because of the reaction it has

:07:45.:07:47.

caused, but what I said was the truth. You do not want to

:07:48.:07:53.

apologise? I am sorry for the trouble I have caused the Labour

:07:54.:07:58.

Party, but what I said was essentially true.

:07:59.:08:05.

Do you agree with him that it is a storm in a teacup, or should he not

:08:06.:08:09.

have used the language he used? Police

:08:10.:08:22.

and health`and`safety officials are investigating after a farm worker

:08:23.:08:23.

was killed on a Lincolnshire farm. 60`year`old John Turner died

:08:24.:08:27.

after he was crushed by a cow An inquest into his death has

:08:28.:08:30.

been opened and adjourned. Five people have been hurt

:08:31.:08:39.

in a crash near Skegness. The emergency services were called

:08:40.:08:42.

to the A52 at Ingoldmells just The injured are aged between 16

:09:09.:09:19.

looking at the choices facing voters We've heard from the Conservatives,

:09:20.:09:25.

Labour, Tonight, we look at some

:09:26.:09:28.

of the other parties hoping to make Recent experience tells us the

:09:29.:09:44.

majority of people support one of the parties led by these four men.

:09:45.:09:49.

But there are signs that some voters could put their crosses in a

:09:50.:09:53.

different box in next week's European elections. This provides

:09:54.:09:58.

central heating. Green party candidates have been buoyed by at

:09:59.:10:02.

least one opinion poll putting them have the Liberal Democrats. They

:10:03.:10:07.

believe more homes like this one should benefit from renewable energy

:10:08.:10:13.

such as solar power. People are finding it difficult to deal with

:10:14.:10:16.

their fuel bills, so let's get some European resources in, let's link it

:10:17.:10:22.

with local government resources, which are limited, to try to do some

:10:23.:10:27.

worthwhile things. From green to red and white, these are not England

:10:28.:10:32.

supporters making an early getaway to Brazil, but the English

:10:33.:10:35.

Democrats, demanding a greater voice for England in Brussels. People are

:10:36.:10:40.

sick of the fact that the other home nations of the UK have their own

:10:41.:10:45.

parliament, and England does not, and the people of England feel left

:10:46.:10:49.

behind. Some believe we should not be part of the EU at all. See what

:10:50.:10:56.

you think, getting out of Europe, we would be better, not spending the

:10:57.:11:00.

money. We want to leave Europe, we do not think the referendum is the

:11:01.:11:05.

right way, we think the ballot box for people to vote for us to leave

:11:06.:11:13.

Europe. We would call for an immediate withdrawal outside of the

:11:14.:11:17.

EU, Pol out of it altogether. It is not working. Voters in towns like

:11:18.:11:22.

Beverley are being targeted by a range of political parties. Some

:11:23.:11:28.

want us to remain part of the EU, others want us out, and some are

:11:29.:11:31.

calling for more direct power for Yorkshire. Yorkshire has a good

:11:32.:11:36.

story to tell, a population of 5 million people, the economy is twice

:11:37.:11:42.

the size of Wales, but it has the power of neither. We have enormous

:11:43.:11:47.

potential. The Tour de France is coming here, Hull have the city of

:11:48.:11:51.

culture, we want to be able to unleash the potential. Next

:11:52.:11:56.

Thursday, voters may choose to support the main political parties

:11:57.:12:00.

or consider an alternative in this most unpredictable election

:12:01.:12:01.

campaign. There's been a fall in the number of

:12:02.:12:06.

people out of work in our region. Unemployment in Yorkshire

Lincolnshire, the jobless total is However, one candidate standing

in the local`council election in Hull, who is opposed to all cuts

:12:22.:12:29.

to council jobs and services, says We welcome the reduction in

:12:30.:12:45.

unemployment, but you have to look deeper than the figures, and look at

:12:46.:12:49.

how many of those young people have been forced onto zero hours

:12:50.:12:53.

contracts, how many are part`time, how many Arsenal having to claim

:12:54.:12:57.

benefits, because most people claiming benefits are working, so it

What work? I will leave the Botox to you! For the next 24 hours, it is

:14:19.:14:23.

not bad, there will be more cloud tomorrow. Variable cloud, some warm

:14:24.:14:31.

sunny spells as well, just the risk of the odd light shower, so not

:14:32.:14:34.

quite the clear blue sky we have had today. It is a lovely outlook,

:14:35.:14:40.

Friday and Saturday look nice. A question as to when the weather will

:14:41.:14:45.

break down. Not until late on Sunday, it seems, which is good

:14:46.:14:53.

news, but the timing may change. Lots of cloud, which will spill

:14:54.:14:57.

Southeast overnight. It has not stopped temperatures reaching 17

:14:58.:15:03.

this afternoon. Overnight, it turns cloudy, with the odd light shower

:15:04.:15:04.

possible. Variable, perhaps large amounts of

:15:05.:15:24.

cloud through tomorrow, it may well produce the odd light shower, but

:15:25.:15:27.

some good breaks coming through, some sunny spells, though the

:15:28.:15:31.

sunshine may be hazy. A light breeze. A westerly breeze in

:15:32.:15:43.

Bridlington, much better news for the coast. The temperatures are even

:15:44.:15:53.

higher on Friday, a lot of sunshine, a beautiful day. The warm weather

:15:54.:15:59.

lasts until the weekend, just the chance of a shower on Saturday

:16:00.:16:02.

afternoon and a bit of patchy rain late on Sunday.

:16:03.:16:08.

I hope our writer was concentrating on the forecast! Have a nice

:16:09.:16:14.

evening. We do not need a reply! This is all mine!

:16:15.:16:21.

More than 100 personnel from RAF Coningsby have been deployed to

:16:22.:16:24.

help patrol the skies above the Baltic states.

:16:25.:16:26.

Four aircraft left Lincolnshire last month and will spend 16 weeks

:16:27.:16:29.

in Lithuania as part of the NATO operation.

:16:30.:16:32.

It comes amid tensions in the region between Russia and Ukraine.

:16:33.:16:40.

13,000 feet over Eastern Europe, typhoons from RAF Coningsby

:16:41.:16:49.

manoeuvre alongside our Voyager jet. As tensions between Russia and

:16:50.:16:53.

Ukraine continue to rise, these are among four typhoons from the

:16:54.:16:57.

squadron helping to protect the Baltic states and secure NATO

:16:58.:17:05.

airspace. They have been called to a loss of litigation is a craft, they

:17:06.:17:10.

are joining up to try to see what state the aeroplane is in, have a

:17:11.:17:15.

good look, try and identify what type of aircraft it is. The crews

:17:16.:17:21.

have been deployed to this former Soviet airbase in Lithuania, it has

:17:22.:17:27.

taken an RAF team to bring tonnes of equipment and aircraft shelters as

:17:28.:17:32.

well as these jets. They are ready to scramble at a moment's notice.

:17:33.:17:38.

The mission is about reassurance to the Baltic states. As an aircraft in

:17:39.:17:44.

distressed, or an aircraft that has not followed a plan, or a military

:17:45.:17:49.

aircraft that needs to be identified. We are excited to be

:17:50.:17:54.

here, we have been made to feel very welcome in Lithuania, it is great to

:17:55.:17:59.

get stuck in. The Lincolnshire crews were sent here just over two weeks

:18:00.:18:03.

ago amid the West's condemnation of Russia's behaviour. The nearby

:18:04.:18:08.

Baltic states do not have their own air defence fighters so these jets,

:18:09.:18:15.

along with others from RAF Waddington, will support other

:18:16.:18:19.

allies and provide reassurance. It is not dissimilar to the task we

:18:20.:18:24.

carry out in the UK, the duties are fairly similar, the air space,

:18:25.:18:28.

working with the local controllers has been fine, we have been flying

:18:29.:18:34.

missions over Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, to various international

:18:35.:18:38.

airports as well, as part of our reassurance task. This is what

:18:39.:18:43.

happens if an unidentified aircraft approaches or enters without

:18:44.:18:47.

approval. Airborne within minutes. We are used to it, both at RAF

:18:48.:18:53.

Coningsby and at RAF Leuchars. It is not routine, but we are

:18:54.:18:58.

comfortable. This is the first time the RAF has deployed on an air

:18:59.:19:04.

policing mission for ten years. It is likely this part of the world

:19:05.:19:05.

could be a base for some time yet. Last night, we were talking about

:19:06.:19:18.

the pavement and the road, he said `` the shared space. One person

:19:19.:19:24.

says, this is dangerous and impractical.

:19:25.:19:53.

The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been paying credit to the

:19:54.:20:01.

Hull City manager Steve Bruce ahead of this weekend's FA Cup final.

:20:02.:20:04.

The Frenchman held his side's pre`match press conference

:20:05.:20:06.

Fear at the Arsenal training ground, the talk has been about them

:20:07.:20:20.

breaking their 90s `` nine year wait for a trophy. Here, that counts as a

:20:21.:20:27.

long time. Arsene Wenger took time out to consider the work that Steve

:20:28.:20:30.

Bruce had done at Hull City over the past years. He has done extremely

:20:31.:20:35.

well, I said that two weeks ago, he has done extremely well to keep them

:20:36.:20:41.

up in the Premier League and get them to the FA Cup final. It is a

:20:42.:20:46.

great achievement. Back in Hull, one person that wants to dent the dream

:20:47.:20:51.

is Curtis Davies. For him, the FA Cup has lost none of its magic, and

:20:52.:20:57.

to lift it would be a dream country. To win an FA Cup is the stuff you

:20:58.:21:02.

dream of. To play in an FA Cup final is one thing, that is a dream

:21:03.:21:06.

accomplished, but once you get there, I have said on a number of

:21:07.:21:12.

occasions, you want to win it. I am hoping that we have got enough on

:21:13.:21:16.

the day to do that. There can be little doubt that Arsenal start as

:21:17.:21:20.

out and out favourites, pretty much like Manchester City last season.

:21:21.:21:22.

But as we saw emerged as winners, so maybe there

:21:23.:21:27.

is hope for Hull. Very few people get to walk on the

:21:28.:21:42.

pitch at Wembley, but Freddie will be one of them. He has been chosen

:21:43.:21:47.

as the mascot for the FA Cup final. It is one of the things on his to`do

:21:48.:21:51.

list, and he is getting ready for his moment in the spotlight.

:21:52.:21:59.

Walking out at the KC Stadium is the stuff dreams are made of. Imagine

:22:00.:22:03.

walking out on the hallowed turf of Wembley. Freddie has only three

:22:04.:22:11.

sleeps to wait. At first, I was scared. But then, I got excited. He

:22:12.:22:17.

has a terminal heart condition, and along with riding in a speedboat,

:22:18.:22:21.

being a mascot was on his to`do list, so what is he most looking

:22:22.:22:27.

forward to? Walking onto the field at Wembley. I will be shaking

:22:28.:22:36.

hands, then they take me back to the changing room, but I will still be

:22:37.:22:43.

in my kit when I go back on my coach. Seeing his face when he walks

:22:44.:22:50.

out onto the pitch, he will be so proud, and it will make me... You

:22:51.:22:55.

can not get memories like that, this does not happen everyday. It will be

:22:56.:23:00.

a big day for his sister, as well. She was able to have the surgery

:23:01.:23:07.

Freddie is too unwell for. My heart has been fixed, his can not be.

:23:08.:23:20.

Every second counts. We have no timescale, Freddie could die today,

:23:21.:23:23.

he might not even make Saturday. All he cares about is his lunch. If I do

:23:24.:23:31.

not like it, I will eat what my mum will make! He will not eat jam, so

:23:32.:23:37.

he will see what it is, if it beats his approval, he will eat it, if

:23:38.:23:42.

not, I have got to have a spare one in my bag. Never mind a Hull City

:23:43.:23:47.

victory, we have got to pray it is not jam!

:23:48.:23:51.

What a big day it will be. Ducklings living

:23:52.:23:59.

in Bridlington have found an unlikely bodyguard to protect

:24:00.:24:01.

them from threatening seagulls. A barnacle goose has taken to

:24:02.:24:03.

escorting the ducks and their newly`hatched chicks

:24:04.:24:06.

around the harbour, He'll chase away any seagull

:24:07.:24:11.

that gets too close. If you know a story that we do not

:24:12.:24:19.

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

:24:20.:24:26.

national and regional headlines. The death toll rises in the Turkish

:24:27.:24:35.

mine disaster, 250 men are confirmed to have died.

:24:36.:24:41.

Austin Mitchell refuses to apologise for a tweet which compared and

:24:42.:24:45.

American drugs firm to a rapist. Most of the people attacking me are

:24:46.:24:51.

conservatives who want to exacerbate the issue to distract attention from

:24:52.:24:56.

the fact that AstraZeneca is going to be taken over.

:24:57.:25:01.

The weather forecast for tomorrow, it gets better and better, most

:25:02.:25:06.

places try and bright, some cloud. It feels very warm.

:25:07.:25:14.
