BBC Look North. After 11 postponed court hearings,

a man's sentenced to life after The victim of the attack

:00:51.:00:55.

FA Cup, we look at Hull City's more than a year to see her attacker

:00:56.:01:00.

sentenced has criticised She says more attention is given

:01:01.:01:29.

to the offender than the victim. The judge described the delays

:01:30.:01:34.

as unjustifiable. Caroline Bilton joins me now from

:01:35.:01:43.

where the attack took place in Hull. This attack lasted for up to half an

:01:44.:02:07.

hour. She described the pain that she felt as she was dragged

:02:08.:02:14.

physically across the concrete. She said it was the most horrific thing

:02:15.:02:25.

she had ever felt in her life. The attack had a history of mental

:02:26.:02:31.

health issues and what he did to her left both and mentally scarred. He

:02:32.:02:36.

had me physically pinned to the ground. I try to pull myself back

:02:37.:02:45.

up. He just pushed me to the ground again. Only the arrival of the

:02:46.:03:12.

police stopped the attack. He said the amount of skin that had been

:03:13.:03:20.

scraped from my legs and knees and particular was quite a large part,

:03:21.:03:29.

but that was due to being dragged across the concrete. I still have

:03:30.:03:33.

got scars over a year later, and I've been told that these scars

:03:34.:03:39.

would be with me for life. Rowlands prize pleaded guilty to the

:03:40.:03:42.

attempted rape last March, but it has taken a year to sentence him.

:03:43.:03:53.

The case here at Hull Crown Court has been adjourned 11 times, due in

:03:54.:04:03.

part to an NHS dispute over who was responsible for paying for his care.

:04:04.:04:06.

I feel like I have not been treated as well as I should have. I feel

:04:07.:04:09.

that victims from Mike 's Berry and her not treated as well as the

:04:10.:04:14.

offenders themselves. Victims of crime must come first in our justice

:04:15.:04:18.

system. That is what the justice system is meant to be for, it is

:04:19.:04:27.

about fairness, but Justice must begin to the victims who suffer

:04:28.:04:36.

terrible crimes. The judge today described him as a dangerous

:04:37.:04:41.

individual and he said that he will serve life in a psychiatric unit and

:04:42.:04:47.

imprisoned. What did the judge say about how long this has taken to

:04:48.:04:52.

come to an end? He said that it was unjustifiable, he said it had also

:04:53.:04:58.

added to the victim 's distress and it had made her dead the criminal

:04:59.:05:02.

justice system. He will receive mental health care in the UK, but we

:05:03.:05:07.

have spoken to the Ministry of Justice today and they say that it

:05:08.:05:12.

is likely that he will be likely considered for deportation back to

:05:13.:05:13.

Latvia. The money goes in, but the only

:05:14.:05:43.

way any comes out again is if you Overpay

:05:44.:05:47.

and that your tough luck because And that is how easy it is

:05:48.:05:50.

for the City of Lincoln Council to From the BBC's Freedom

:05:51.:05:56.

of information request, the city of Lincoln Council took

:05:57.:06:01.

an extra ?95,000 last year on the ?3.2 million it takes

:06:02.:06:07.

annually from car parking charges. That is an extra 3% on top of what

:06:08.:06:11.

people should have paid every year. I think that is taking advantage

:06:12.:06:18.

of people unnecessarily. I work in the pub industry,

:06:19.:06:22.

if I overcharged by 3%, So why are

:06:23.:06:28.

the council allowed to do it? Parking,

:06:29.:06:34.

you have got to pay for it anyway, I don't agree with not giving

:06:35.:06:36.

change, but then it is very difficult for them to give change

:06:37.:06:44.

in a machine like that, isn't it? One motoring organisation doesn't

:06:45.:06:47.

think the technology is an excuse. Councils should make it easier to

:06:48.:06:51.

park, not more difficult, not hanging on the money that they

:06:52.:06:55.

are not entitled to. It is not as if Lincoln hasn't got

:06:56.:06:58.

the funds available to invest in new parking machines that might give

:06:59.:07:02.

change or offer an alternative way Lincoln does offer other options,

:07:03.:07:05.

you can pay by phone or use a card, some of the reasons why

:07:06.:07:11.

the council says the amount of annual overspend has actually

:07:12.:07:15.

decreased significantly since 2010. The British Parking Association says

:07:16.:07:20.

providing machines that offer change means bigger machines

:07:21.:07:23.

and more staff to maintain them. And they are more vulnerable

:07:24.:07:27.

to vandalism and thieves. So for the people of Lincoln

:07:28.:07:30.

and her visitors, for now, rising up to technology is

:07:31.:07:33.

your only option if you do not have Let us know what you think of this

:07:34.:07:36.

story. Is it up to the drivers to make sure they have the right change

:07:37.:07:49.

or are Lincoln City Council wrong to have these machines which don't give

:07:50.:07:53.

change? Get in touch. We asked if the council were guilty

:07:54.:08:12.

of overpaying? No, people can pay by credit card, they can pay over the

:08:13.:08:19.

phone. A huge amount of money over paid into your pocket? We have been

:08:20.:08:26.

the amount overpaid last year was a the amount overpaid last year was a

:08:27.:08:36.

figure of under ?67,000, and we have worked hard to reduce that all along

:08:37.:08:43.

the way. We can put people on the moon, why not have a machine that

:08:44.:08:47.

gives change? Most machines are pay on exit machines, they are larger

:08:48.:08:57.

and more complex and we usually have one machine in one car park. Why do

:08:58.:09:04.

you not do that smack the RAC has said this is not an issue? Well if

:09:05.:09:11.

you did your research, the pay and display machinery, they do not

:09:12.:09:18.

provide pay and display machines that give change. That people have

:09:19.:09:25.

not got the money back, it is tough luck, ?300,000 tough luck? ! I would

:09:26.:09:33.

say that any money that is overpaid is reinvested in those car parks and

:09:34.:09:37.

in those public services, and that is far better than I would suggest

:09:38.:09:44.

in what goes into pay and display machines in private operators when

:09:45.:09:47.

it swells the profits of the company. Do you want to get people

:09:48.:09:58.

to do away with money? No, not at all, we encourage people to use

:09:59.:10:01.

car parks, we offer different ways car parks, we offer different ways

:10:02.:10:07.

to pay and that is what we will continue to do. We will continue to

:10:08.:10:13.

do term when the machines, for renewal if we should move to pay on

:10:14.:10:17.

exit, that is something that local businesses and committees have been

:10:18.:10:20.

asking for, but to do that, it would need an investment of about ?1

:10:21.:10:21.

million to switch to pay on exit. Two people have been arrested during

:10:22.:10:47.

an anti`fracking protest at an East The arrests took place as protestors

:10:48.:10:52.

attempted to block the entrance to Around 30 police officers were

:10:53.:10:57.

called to the site after protestors tried to prevent a number of waste

:10:58.:11:01.

water disposal tankers entering. The protestors,

:11:02.:11:04.

who've been camped there since the beginning of the week, are claiming

:11:05.:11:06.

that the owner Rathlin Energy plans to conduct fracking in the area

:11:07.:11:09.

in order to extract shale gas. To local people, a husband and wife,

:11:10.:11:29.

very brave people, they're here to fight for their community. We will

:11:30.:11:31.

continue to follow that story. The family

:11:32.:11:39.

of an elderly cancer patient claims she was forced to die in agony,

:11:40.:11:41.

because of problems with the end Enid Smith wanted to spend her final

:11:42.:11:45.

hours at the nursing home where But her son

:11:46.:11:51.

and daughter claim failings in the care service meant her death was

:11:52.:11:55.

needlessly painful and distressing Our health correspondent,

:11:56.:11:58.

Vicky Johnson reports. Two months later, the family are

:11:59.:12:09.

still distressed by the way that she died. She was begging over and over

:12:10.:12:17.

again, help me, help me. Enid had suffered from cancer and she was

:12:18.:12:23.

assured by the local palliative care service that they would help to have

:12:24.:12:29.

a dignified, pain`free death. It was not to be. She was told she would

:12:30.:12:34.

have a peaceful death and she would sleep away, but it wasn't the right

:12:35.:12:40.

amount of medicine she was given, because she still woke up. Good

:12:41.:12:44.

palliative care should provide pain relief according to a hospice in the

:12:45.:12:50.

city. Often, we would prescribe medication in the event of the

:12:51.:12:54.

patient having distressing symptoms. That can be done in any health care

:12:55.:13:00.

setting. But even it was not cared for in the hospice, it has been

:13:01.:13:04.

claimed that staff shortages meant she was not given the support

:13:05.:13:07.

needed. The health care partnership that runs the local palliative care

:13:08.:13:12.

service has said they launched a detailed investigation into the

:13:13.:13:14.

complaints from the family, but they complaints from the family, but they

:13:15.:13:18.

say they will not share their findings on the other family have

:13:19.:13:24.

been informed. More than 350,000 people in England need palliative

:13:25.:13:26.

care every year. Around one third still do not get any. And of life,

:13:27.:13:32.

that should just be compassion and care, and that is what it should be

:13:33.:13:38.

about. Some charities are calling for resources to be diverted into

:13:39.:13:43.

the community. We know that a lot of people, it is quite clear, they

:13:44.:13:48.

would prefer to die at home, and given the choice, they would like to

:13:49.:13:53.

be able to do that. It would be great if some of the resources could

:13:54.:13:57.

be directed in that way. This is the week when all of us are encouraged

:13:58.:14:00.

to make plans for our final days, to make plans for our final days,

:14:01.:14:06.

but for some people like Enid, the support simply is not there.

That was cloud! I think your eyesight is going!

From the so`called "crazy paving" scheme in Grimsby to the proposed

There's no shortage of issues in the political battle for control

:17:25.:17:29.

Elections take place next Thursday and our Political Editor Tim Iredale

:17:30.:17:36.

has been speaking to the main candidates.

:17:37.:17:43.

It is that time of the year when conversation turns to the price of

:17:44.:17:50.

fish to who will win the upcoming election. Voters in Grimsby will

:17:51.:17:55.

have their say on how the local council can improve their lives? May

be some better, cheaper parking. Lower the rates for the shops and

filled the streets up with decent shops. Have decent places for young

brought in new jobs and regeneration, and lots of new

redevelopments. New hotels being developed as we speak. The town

some of management. The Lib Dems say a controversial block paving scheme

:19:33.:19:37.

in parts of Grimsby town centre is an example of why more consultation

:19:38.:19:42.

is needed. It seems to be an ongoing situation where they have to dig up

:19:43.:19:47.

large sections of the crazy paving and people are beginning to say,

:19:48.:19:50.

what is going on with this local authority? These political leaders

:19:51.:19:55.

have just one week left to convince the people of North East

:19:56.:19:57.

Lincolnshire to vote for them. Thanks to everyone who got in touch

apologise for comparing a US pharmaceutical company to a rapist

ridiculous in this Country. You dare not say anything

:21:48.:21:50.

in Scunthorpe is one of almost 700 nationwide taking part in 'Museums

because of working to go to the museum, we are working after hours,

Our sports reporter Simon Clark plots their remarkable rise.

It may be hard to believe in this special week,

but 14 years ago this month, Hull City staff found themselves locked

It was a complex wrangle between leisure centre magnate

Matt Barlow covered the darkest days for the Hull Daily Mail.

To think about anything that happened since is amazing.

:23:04.:23:06.

Wembley is going to be such a fabulous location

:23:07.:23:11.

and everybody connected with the club and especially all the fans,

:23:12.:23:14.

I just think they deserve it, after everything they've lived through.

One year later, Leeds businessman Adam Pearson bought the troubled

It was 20 minutes from going out of existence.

:23:29.:23:36.

It was in the bottom half of the bottom tier of the football

:23:37.:23:40.

But it had a core of supporters that was loyal to it

:23:41.:23:45.

and kept it going, and I knew if I could buy into that passion,

:23:46.:23:49.

The eventual appointment of Peter Taylor as manager yielded

:23:50.:23:53.

I think it was just everybody working extremely hard and I

:23:54.:23:59.

honestly do look back at the time and I am of course pleased

:24:00.:24:02.

with the promotions, delighted with that, but I'm more pleased

When I get a bit fed up, I watch myself and I even cry

:24:14.:24:20.

It was just a memorable day for myself, I scored a goal.

:24:21.:24:25.

It is one of those defining moments in my life.

:24:26.:24:29.

From the locked gates of Boothferry to the open gates of Wembley, this

:24:30.:24:32.

has been some journey for a club that at one stage had no future.

:24:33.:24:36.

The story of Hull City has been one of football 's fairy tales.
