20 degrees. We need to keep a close eye on development is over the next

:00:00.3:59:59

couple of days. grieving family asking British

:00:00.:00:14.

officers to investigate the death of their son in Kenyan police custody.

:00:15.:00:18.

We are calling for what any other family would call for, which is

:00:19.:00:26.

justice. Merge into Hull or stay in east Yorkshire, the choice facing

:00:27.:00:30.

people in part of the East Riding. They lost the match but could Hull

:00:31.:00:34.

still end up as winners after the FA Cup final?

:00:35.:00:39.

Imagine the global coverage the FA Cup got and the profile that's given

:00:40.:00:44.

the city, it's been amazing. And tonight, the gardeners looking

:00:45.:00:49.

for gold at the world's most famous Flower Show. It's been another

:00:50.:00:53.

beautiful day but what about the rest of the week? Join me for all

:00:54.:01:04.

the details. Good evening. Two years ago Alex

:01:05.:01:10.

Monson died after being taken into police custody in Kenya. Today, his

:01:11.:01:15.

sister and father, who is a Lincolnshire Lord, took a petition

:01:16.:01:19.

to the Kenyan Embassy to urge authorities to allow British

:01:20.:01:23.

detectives to investigate. Alex died after a blow to the head. A report

:01:24.:01:28.

by Kenyan detectives cleared local police of any involvement. Now his

:01:29.:01:31.

family want the Metropolitan Police to be allowed to open their own

:01:32.:01:37.

inquiry. Caroline Bilton reports. He died two years ago in police

:01:38.:01:42.

custody in Kenya. Today, Alex Monson's family took their quest for

:01:43.:01:46.

answers to the Kenyan Embassy in London. It felt like two years was a

:01:47.:01:50.

long enough time to have waited and that we would start coming in person

:01:51.:01:55.

to ask for personal assurance that something was being done. We just

:01:56.:01:59.

hoped by reaching out to the Kenyan High Commission as Kenya's

:02:00.:02:03.

representatives here in the UK that they might help us. Alex Monson was

:02:04.:02:08.

a son of the Lincolnshire peer Lord Monson. He had been living here in

:02:09.:02:15.

Kenya since 2009. 28`year`old Alex was arrested on drugs charges on

:02:16.:02:21.

18th May, 2012. In the early hours of the 19th friends visited him in

:02:22.:02:27.

jail reporting that he was both jovial and normal. By 9. 9.30 that

:02:28.:02:34.

morning investigators say officers realised he hadn't woken up and

:02:35.:02:40.

breathing heavily. By 5. 10 he was dead. The family believe the police

:02:41.:02:49.

have questions to answer. Alexander entered the police station as a

:02:50.:02:52.

healthy man and he came out in a coma. He was with police the entire

:02:53.:03:00.

time. From when he was healthy to when he was dead. A investigation by

:03:01.:03:04.

Kenyan authorities have ruled out police involvement. The family are

:03:05.:03:08.

today calling for the Kenyan Government to allow Scotland Yard to

:03:09.:03:12.

investigate. We are calling for what any other family would call for,

:03:13.:03:21.

which is justice and we are seeking a prosecution of those responsible.

:03:22.:03:26.

In a statement the Foreign Office says:

:03:27.:03:36.

His death remains a mystery but his family say they won't give up their

:03:37.:03:43.

fight for answers. Of course we will follow the story

:03:44.:03:49.

if there are any developments. In a moment the BBC team that's

:03:50.:03:54.

transformed the home and the life of a seriously ill girl from Spalding.

:03:55.:04:01.

People living in areas of east Yorkshire will be asked to vote in

:04:02.:04:06.

September over whether they want to become part of Hull. East Riding of

:04:07.:04:10.

Yorkshire council will get the views of people living near the boundary

:04:11.:04:14.

in a special poll later this year. In a moment we will hear from the

:04:15.:04:18.

leader of East Riding Council, but first this report.

:04:19.:04:23.

Hull is a city steeped in maritime history. Last year it won the title

:04:24.:04:29.

for UK City of Culture for 2017. The city needs to grow and Hull City

:04:30.:04:34.

Council has a plan, to expand the city's boundaries in to what is now

:04:35.:04:38.

the East Riding. This September people living in communities near

:04:39.:04:46.

Hull's existing boundary, will all get a chance to vote on these two

:04:47.:04:50.

questions: Do they want to remain in the East Riding? Or be part of

:04:51.:04:54.

Hull's expansion? And, do they want to keep the so`called green space in

:04:55.:05:01.

between? There's been no significant changes since 1996 when the

:05:02.:05:06.

boundaries were last redrawn and Humberside County Council was

:05:07.:05:11.

abolished. Neither council has the power to redraw the boundaries. It

:05:12.:05:16.

will be used to gauge local opinion and any eventual changes would be

:05:17.:05:22.

made by the Secretary of State. We are asking for your thoughts on

:05:23.:05:27.

this in a moment, first I spoke with the leader of East Riding Council

:05:28.:05:32.

and asked him was the concern about Hull taking over or was it snobbery?

:05:33.:05:37.

I don't think it's anything to do with snobbery. We get on well with

:05:38.:05:42.

the city council, they get on well with us. It's about identity. Is it

:05:43.:05:47.

like asking turkeys to vote for Christmas? I think it pretty much is

:05:48.:05:52.

actually. I am pretty sure the vote will be overwhelming but we need to

:05:53.:05:55.

prove that and need to ask people. Why do you need to prove it? We need

:05:56.:05:58.

to demonstrate this is a waste of time and effort on behalf of the

:05:59.:06:01.

city council and that actually the public don't want it so we need to

:06:02.:06:06.

prove that beyond doubt. Hull City council would say they are

:06:07.:06:10.

disadvantaged by not having leafy suburbs like other cities, do you

:06:11.:06:15.

agree with that? No, I don't actually. If you look at statistics,

:06:16.:06:22.

they're no different to many cities throughout the country. It's a

:06:23.:06:25.

non`argument, frankly. You are just trying to lance the boil and get it

:06:26.:06:29.

down on paper that we don't want to be part of Hull, that's what you are

:06:30.:06:33.

trying to do? Let's get it over with and celebrate all the great things

:06:34.:06:36.

happening in the city and the East Riding and move on. So you want the

:06:37.:06:41.

city to be down the road so you can come and use the waterfront and

:06:42.:06:43.

theatres and stuff like that but you don't want to be part of it? No,

:06:44.:06:51.

they can come and use ` come to East Riding and the Spa in Bridlington.

:06:52.:06:57.

We welcome people. We are not building brick walls around it. We

:06:58.:07:02.

want people to live in. If you lived in Cottingham say, what would you

:07:03.:07:06.

vote? I would be voting to stay exactly as we are, as we have done

:07:07.:07:09.

for send trees and that's the best place to be `` centuries. Are you

:07:10.:07:14.

sure it's not snobbery? Absolutely, yeah. There's no snobbery about me,

:07:15.:07:18.

I am sure you would agree with that and I don't think it is on behalf of

:07:19.:07:22.

other residents. OK, good to have you on the programme.

:07:23.:07:27.

There we are, the leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council. We want

:07:28.:07:33.

to hear from you. Do you agree with the Councillor that it's not

:07:34.:07:37.

snobbery? The vote is in September. Let me know if you are voting

:07:38.:07:40.

especially in one of the boundary areas.

:07:41.:07:45.

We look forward to hearing from you. And we will have some of your

:07:46.:08:08.

stories and thoughts before we finish tonight.

:08:09.:08:13.

Some more news. Firefighters from Lincolnshire have flown to Sarajevo

:08:14.:08:17.

to help victims of severe flooding. It's part of the UK contribution to

:08:18.:08:22.

efforts. A national emergency has been declared after the floods

:08:23.:08:25.

caused thousands of people to be moved out of their homes.

:08:26.:08:31.

A Hull school which has been earmarked for closure will be used

:08:32.:08:37.

for adult education. It opened in 2003 but was placed in special

:08:38.:08:40.

measures three times. Hull City council says the site will remain

:08:41.:08:45.

open for current year ten pupils until 2015 so that they can complete

:08:46.:08:50.

their GCSEs. It was a match beamed to more than

:08:51.:08:56.

100 countries and seen by an estimated 500 million people around

:08:57.:09:00.

the world. Hull City's first ever FA Cup final ended in defeat to Arsenal

:09:01.:09:04.

on Saturday at Wembley but it's hoped there will be long`term

:09:05.:09:12.

benefits to the area. Leanne Brown reports on the impact of Hull's

:09:13.:09:16.

exposure on the world stage. The game may be over, but flags are

:09:17.:09:20.

still flying in Hull as the legacy of the FA Cup final continues.

:09:21.:09:26.

It's been absolutely amazing. You can imagine the global coverage that

:09:27.:09:30.

the FA Cup got and the profile that has given the city, even after

:09:31.:09:33.

Saturday a lot of the Arsenal supporters were saying they must go

:09:34.:09:35.

to Hull for things other than football. Hopefully that will be

:09:36.:09:40.

people coming up at weekends, during the week for city breaks. This is

:09:41.:09:44.

about really getting Hull on the map as a destination.

:09:45.:09:49.

A dedicated team went to Wembley at the weekend to promote the city to

:09:50.:09:55.

anyone who would listen. We brought our iconic white phone boxes, some

:09:56.:10:01.

dancers. The feedback has been positive. Over the last six months

:10:02.:10:04.

we have had so much good news that the people of Hull feel it's our

:10:05.:10:08.

time. This map shows activity on Twitter over the weekend. People

:10:09.:10:12.

were talking about the FA Cup in places as far away as Malaysia,

:10:13.:10:17.

Africa, and America. When you get it on the type of scale that you get

:10:18.:10:23.

for something like the FA Cup final, the power of it is phenomenal, it's

:10:24.:10:28.

so many people talking about it. It's demonstrated previously in the

:10:29.:10:34.

City of Culture bid and demonstrated again around the FA Cup as well.

:10:35.:10:38.

Even in London today at the Chelsea Flower Show people were still

:10:39.:10:41.

talking about it. I believe in Hull. But I am an Arsenal fan. I realise

:10:42.:10:45.

the people there have passion. They've got drive and determination.

:10:46.:10:49.

Lots of Chelsea fans were rooting for Hull because they didn't want

:10:50.:10:53.

Arsenal to win. We were rooting for them as a Stoke`on`Trent team

:10:54.:10:56.

associated with Hull because we lost out a few years ago. We wanted you

:10:57.:11:02.

to win. So although the match ended in defeat, it's looking like Hull

:11:03.:11:10.

has won in many other ways. We saw pictures there of the Chelsea

:11:11.:11:14.

Flower Show. We will be live there later in the programme. Still ahead:

:11:15.:11:20.

The gardeners looking for gold at the world's most famous Flower Show.

:11:21.:11:26.

And early joy turned to FA Cup despair but Hull City left Wembley

:11:27.:11:36.

with their heads held high. Tonight the BBC programme D IY

:11:37.:11:45.

spores SOS features `` SOS features a family from Spalding.

:11:46.:11:53.

The family home wasn't wheelchair friendly. Now thanks to the team

:11:54.:11:59.

from the BBC the future for Dakota is much brighter. For Paula and her

:12:00.:12:05.

daughter every day was a struggle. The family bungalow near Spalding

:12:06.:12:09.

wasn't suitable for Dakota's needs but major building work was out of

:12:10.:12:14.

their price range. She was given a life expectancy of 15 years. But we

:12:15.:12:20.

were told that if we could keep her mobile then we had the potential of

:12:21.:12:25.

adding another 21 years on to her life expectancy. As a mother, what

:12:26.:12:32.

else do you want more than that? The family was put forward for the BBC's

:12:33.:12:40.

D IY SOS. Weeks later an army of builders turned up. You have to be

:12:41.:12:44.

able to move everything out of the house, move yourself out. We have a

:12:45.:12:49.

lot of animals here. We had to find places for them to be homed. It was

:12:50.:12:57.

a marathon task. The ambitious makeover was far from simple. Just

:12:58.:13:00.

as the crew arrived on site, temperatures dropped well below

:13:01.:13:04.

freezing. The whole project hung in the balance. It's minus four around

:13:05.:13:10.

here which means that the concrete won't go off, plaster won't go off,

:13:11.:13:15.

mortar won't go off. We have bricks delivered today. A bit of a worry.

:13:16.:13:20.

With nine days to finish the job, builders battled some of the worst

:13:21.:13:24.

weather in years. And conscious that this could make a huge difference

:13:25.:13:30.

for Paula's family. This, in terms of Dakota's life is absolutely a

:13:31.:13:35.

life`saver. There's no question. Could the team beat the British

:13:36.:13:39.

weather? And would the family's new home be everything they had hoped

:13:40.:13:42.

for? Well, you will have to tune in tonight to find out.

:13:43.:13:50.

We look forward to seeing the transformation. It's on BBC1

:13:51.:13:56.

tonight. That's at 9.00pm. We will tune in later on. Good

:13:57.:14:00.

evening young man. What a beautiful day again. Yes, you open read it!

:14:01.:14:09.

No, you make it. Did you enjoy it at Wembley? Yes.

:14:10.:14:14.

You now know what a football is. It's not a bad one, although it's a

:14:15.:14:23.

deteriorating picture over the next few days. Tomorrow perhaps a grey

:14:24.:14:30.

start. Sunny spells, a few thunder storms breaking out. An unsettled

:14:31.:14:34.

looking chart. The storms will be quite well`scattered. Still a good

:14:35.:14:38.

deal of fine weather on offer. All the storms have been to the west of

:14:39.:14:42.

us today. We have had a beautiful day. 24C. Just a chance of an

:14:43.:14:51.

isolated thundery downpour tonight but hit and miss. Many of us will

:14:52.:14:56.

stay dry. Low cloud and mistiness for the east Yorkshire coastline

:14:57.:15:00.

moving inland with lowest temperatures. Another mild one.

:15:01.:15:06.

The sun will rise in the morning. Some of us waking up to a different

:15:07.:15:17.

start. A grey start especially across parts of east Yorkshire,

:15:18.:15:21.

mistiness and the odd shower from the overnight period but skies will

:15:22.:15:24.

brighten and we will see sunny spells developing but there you can

:15:25.:15:28.

see a risk of scattered thunderstorms. A few of them again

:15:29.:15:33.

pushing up the western side but some later tomorrow may push across

:15:34.:15:38.

central parts of east Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. Top temperatures,

:15:39.:15:45.

along the coast temperatures lower at 17C. Inland 22C possibly. A tee

:15:46.:15:54.

gree or so down on values over `` a degree or so down on values over the

:15:55.:15:59.

weekend. Wednesday, it turns much cooler and wetter through Thursday.

:16:00.:16:01.

That's the forecast. My tweet was, he may have written

:16:02.:16:16.

five books but most are in the charity book shop! Along with John

:16:17.:16:24.

Kettle's! See you tomorrow. More than 150,000 people will go through

:16:25.:16:26.

the gates of the Chelsea flour this week. It's an international ``

:16:27.:16:31.

Chelsea Flower Show this week. It's an international stage for gardeners

:16:32.:16:34.

to showcase skills and build their businesses. The Queen is there this

:16:35.:16:38.

evening. Amanda White got there first.

:16:39.:16:48.

It's the greatest celebration of our British love affair with our

:16:49.:16:58.

gardens. Chelsea is for the best of the best. Much of it grown in

:16:59.:17:11.

Lincolnshire. A new daffodil for a young Prince.

:17:12.:17:16.

This is a good flower. It's a garden variety. We have grown it on

:17:17.:17:19.

specifically to use in gardens and that's what it's for. This part of

:17:20.:17:25.

the pavilion is little Lincolnshire. They're going to have to rename it.

:17:26.:17:29.

It's impressive at how much variety from that part of Britain.

:17:30.:17:36.

Lincolnshire is everywhere. En Victorian violas from Lincoln.

:17:37.:17:50.

Lincoln firecracker, it's a lovely two`tone orange.

:17:51.:17:59.

So much here at Chelsea is sheer decadence but the flowers remain the

:18:00.:18:04.

star. The planting here was done by a man from Cleethorpes. We started a

:18:05.:18:09.

couple of weeks ago, Saturday morning, and the place was bare

:18:10.:18:13.

earth. We turn up, have a look. We design with our client base and

:18:14.:18:18.

budgets in mind. We could go off easily and design fantastic gardens

:18:19.:18:22.

but people can't afford to have them so we design real gardens for real

:18:23.:18:30.

people. In the grandpa victimian Debbie `` in the grand pavilion was

:18:31.:18:39.

Debbie. Thrilled with the way the garden has turned out. Horticultural

:18:40.:18:46.

and floristry don't usually come together, we are thrilled.

:18:47.:18:50.

Lincolnshire really contributes to a show which will amaze and inspire in

:18:51.:19:05.

equal measure. In Manchester the black and whites

:19:06.:19:10.

were left a man down after Jason Crooks was sent off after the

:19:11.:19:18.

half`time break. A try from Hodgson. Hull KR 38, Hull FC 24. The magic

:19:19.:19:22.

weekend. Back to the FA Cup final and Hull

:19:23.:19:25.

City hope that this is only the start of a long period of success.

:19:26.:19:29.

In July, the club will play their first game in Europe before

:19:30.:19:32.

embarking on another season of Premier League football. Our sports

:19:33.:19:37.

reporter Simon Clarke looks at the impact of the game on the club.

:19:38.:19:42.

The eye has watched over the Tigers this year and the eyes of the world

:19:43.:19:47.

have viewed press coverage which has taken Hull City to another level.

:19:48.:19:51.

Nobody is prouder than the club's captain from the 80s, Gareth

:19:52.:19:56.

Roberts. He, like all in amber, enjoyed and endured. We gave them a

:19:57.:20:01.

great game. The only thing that let us down was the thing that gave the

:20:02.:20:05.

advantage to Arsenal, their squad, the depth in the squad. The FA Cup

:20:06.:20:13.

delivered all the pomp and circumstance before The Tigers

:20:14.:20:16.

decided to rip up the script. It was something nice to look back on that,

:20:17.:20:20.

not too many people have managed to achieve that. It would have felt

:20:21.:20:25.

much better had we gone on to get the victory. Yorkshire hearts danced

:20:26.:20:32.

as the Gunners sank to the volley of Davis. Then a little reality check.

:20:33.:20:45.

And untimely Tigers injuries. I pulled my groin, unfortunately, I

:20:46.:20:48.

jumped for a header and I just felt it go. Arsenal struck.

:20:49.:20:54.

It's gone to the far post. Energy`sapping. It was hard coming

:20:55.:21:02.

off from exhaustion. I knew we were ready for 120 minutes. You are

:21:03.:21:06.

playing against a great team. Then an 11th hour dagger through the

:21:07.:21:16.

heart of east Yorkshire's finest. Sick as a dog to see them lift the

:21:17.:21:21.

trophy. We started off brilliantly and to lose it late on, really sort

:21:22.:21:28.

of, a big disappointment. Now Steve Bruce and his players can brush off

:21:29.:21:32.

defeat because Europe is on its way. The dust is settling on an epic FA

:21:33.:21:37.

Cup final but for Hull City the journey doesn't end there. You see

:21:38.:21:42.

on the 31st July they begin their first steps in a European football

:21:43.:21:47.

competition. These are extraordinary times to be a Hull City supporter.

:21:48.:21:57.

That is the football part. Our cameras have been capturing stories

:21:58.:22:02.

of the weekend in Hull and also down in London as thousands of City fans

:22:03.:22:06.

MUSIC Here are some of the best pictures.

:22:07.:23:30.

We are proud of you! It was just fantastic, wasn't it? It

:23:31.:23:37.

was made by the weather, as well. Thank you very much indeed if you

:23:38.:23:41.

went there. I hope you enjoyed it. If you watched it on the TV, hope

:23:42.:23:46.

you enjoyed it, as well. You sent loads of pictures, thank you very

:23:47.:23:48.

much indeed for all of those. We will put them together in a

:23:49.:23:53.

scrapbook on our Facebook page, thank you for thinking of us and for

:23:54.:23:58.

all of the photos. If you have a story you think we should know

:23:59.:24:01.

about, drop us an e`mail with the details.

:24:02.:24:06.

The main national and regional headlines: AstraZeneca rejects a

:24:07.:24:10.

final offer from the US pharmaceutical giant Pfizer. It

:24:11.:24:13.

would have been the biggest ever foreign takeover of a British firm.

:24:14.:24:19.

Two years after their son died in police custody in Kenya, a

:24:20.:24:22.
