Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

Make Hull better, by making it bigger ` why boundary expansion

:00:25.:00:28.

The hidden health risks facing long`term residents

Paying the price of success ` Hull City season tickets go up

Making music and topping the charts the Lincolnshire school

:00:36.:00:39.

We started off saying that this is what we are going to come up with.

:00:40.:00:58.

It has gone to number one. Don't forget that detailed weather

:00:59.:01:05.

Expanding the city of Hull to take in the suburbs of East Yorkshire

:01:06.:01:11.

will benefit everyone living there, that's the message tonight from

:01:12.:01:14.

politicians in Hull who've been outlining their expansion plans.

:01:15.:01:18.

It's in response to critics from the East Riding who say they

:01:19.:01:22.

don't want to be part of Hull and see no benefit

:01:23.:01:25.

However those in support say joining together will boost

:01:26.:01:28.

In a moment Colin Inglis from Hull city council will join me to explain

:01:29.:01:37.

more but first Emma Massey has this report.

:01:38.:01:40.

Hull's been named city of culture for 2017 ` global energy

:01:41.:01:47.

firm Siemens is investing tens of millions ` But the city's political

:01:48.:01:50.

leaders say it needs to grow ` and they have a plan which could see the

:01:51.:01:58.

city's boundaries expand into some neighbouring towns. One

:01:59.:02:05.

It could be even better. The people who lived in the suburbs and the

:02:06.:02:13.

dormitory towns around Harle, they depend on the whole's success.

:02:14.:02:20.

idea Hull City Council wants to consider is expanding its boundary

:02:21.:02:23.

into the East Riding including Cottingham, Hessle and Hedon.

:02:24.:02:25.

Another possibility is having a single authority that covers

:02:26.:02:28.

ultimately it'll be up to the Secretary of State to make

:02:29.:02:32.

Under the plans the expansion of Hull?s boundary wouldn't just

:02:33.:02:36.

Separating the city are hundreds of acres of green space. It is land

:02:37.:02:46.

like this that whole city council wants to develop.

:02:47.:02:53.

And it's their land to do so but there isn't a lot of support for the

:02:54.:02:57.

The main concern is a loss of identity. If and when the city

:02:58.:03:03.

council takes over these villages, all of the money that could those

:03:04.:03:13.

villages goes to the city which is a bottomless pit.

:03:14.:03:21.

As well as Hull City Council's independent enquiry into the plans,

:03:22.:03:24.

the East Riding Authority will be allowing those residents affected by

:03:25.:03:27.

the proposed expansion to have their say in a referendum in September.

:03:28.:03:31.

Stay as Headon. It is not a village any more, but we still have that

:03:32.:03:36.

community. It could be a good thing. I would probably vote in favour. We

:03:37.:03:42.

have everything here, and we have all of our history. We do not want

:03:43.:03:44.

to lose it. The evidence gathered

:03:45.:03:47.

by the council's won't be submitted to the government until the end

:03:48.:03:49.

of the year. So the decision

:03:50.:03:52.

on these controversial proposals We heard about the East Riding's

:03:53.:03:54.

intention to hold a ballot on this issue in last night's programme

:03:55.:04:00.

and we got a huge response. They use Hull facilities but

:04:01.:04:03.

disassociate themselves even when Dorothy says

:04:04.:04:09.

"I live in Swanland and I would like The boundary issue is back

:04:10.:04:18.

on the political agenda after the Labour Councillor Colin Inglis

:04:19.:04:33.

raised it at Hull City Council. Do you think that people care

:04:34.:04:53.

passionately or not? One thing that is an advantage is that there will

:04:54.:04:58.

be 80% of people who will not take part. If that is the case, and I

:04:59.:05:07.

think the... Let's leave the politics aside. I e`mail here.

:05:08.:05:24.

Either Hull... That isn't emotional response. These are independently

:05:25.:05:32.

minded people. There are some very interesting people, and politicians,

:05:33.:05:39.

but the most part, they will look at it dispassionately. Or able come up

:05:40.:05:44.

with something by Christmas. We heard from a former mayor. His

:05:45.:05:50.

concern is that council tax will be diverted into Hull, which is eight

:05:51.:05:56.

bottomless pit as far as he is concerned. Eight and the property is

:05:57.:06:03.

the same price there. Your counsel taxes going up by the maximum

:06:04.:06:11.

amount. Are they better at their finances? Are you a fan of the

:06:12.:06:27.

single authority? If you take it, it is too big. I suspect that East

:06:28.:06:30.

Riding is already too big. That is the biggest unitary authority by

:06:31.:06:36.

area in the country. It is as much as we would think about. We are

:06:37.:06:41.

going to wait for the commission to report. How would Hull would

:06:42.:06:55.

benefit? There is a distortion of the statistics because of the tight

:06:56.:06:58.

boundaries. People all over the world get an impression. We had were

:06:59.:07:06.

very hard because they look at statistics in magazines and research

:07:07.:07:10.

papers and it is not in a particular place.

:07:11.:07:21.

Have you been convinced by what you've heard from Colin Inglis?

:07:22.:07:24.

Has he persuaded you that Hull should stretch its boundaries?

:07:25.:07:27.

Let us know what you think whether you live in one

:07:28.:07:30.

of the villages affected or whether you live in Hull.

:07:31.:07:42.

In a moment, in a closely fought race who will come out on top

:07:43.:07:46.

Doctors are warning that thousands of people who spend most

:07:47.:07:55.

of the year living in caravans along the Lincolnshire coast could

:07:56.:07:58.

Many of these temporary residents are not

:07:59.:08:01.

registered with local GPs and doctors fear they could be missing

:08:02.:08:05.

Our health correspondent Vicky Johnson has been to

:08:06.:08:08.

Pamela Coupe is typical of many of Lincolnshire's temporary residents.

:08:09.:08:16.

She's retired, she's diabetic and she's got high blood pressure ` but

:08:17.:08:19.

she's not registered with a doctor in Mablethorpe ` despite living

:08:20.:08:22.

I have signed up to eight national database of. My condition is

:08:23.:08:38.

supposed be on the computer where they can access wherever I am. In

:08:39.:08:43.

theory, do I need to be registered permanently here?

:08:44.:08:49.

Yes, say local doctors who estimate there could be 5,000 people `

:08:50.:08:52.

most of whom are retired ` who aren't registered with a local GP.

:08:53.:08:56.

If you are a temporary resident, yes, we will see you. But you will

:08:57.:09:04.

not be on our radar. All of these things that keep you well into the

:09:05.:09:06.

future. Research is now underway to

:09:07.:09:09.

assess the scale of the problem. While most are used

:09:10.:09:14.

by holiday`makers, there are many thousands who call them home

:09:15.:09:32.

for between nine and 12 months a There are many people that was

:09:33.:09:35.

suffer health issues. Despite living and working

:09:36.:09:41.

in Mablethorpe, Margaret is still I just take medication. I just go

:09:42.:09:54.

home when I had to have more tests and things like that.

:09:55.:09:59.

But this is far from ideal, say doctors.

:10:00.:10:01.

They hope the new research will help them plan

:10:02.:10:03.

both better healthcare for people like pamela and reduce emergency

:10:04.:10:06.

Police have stepped up patrols at a Hull park after a 14 year old

:10:07.:10:18.

The incident happened at Pickering Park and the teenager is

:10:19.:10:22.

39 year old Matthew Grebe from the city has been charged with

:10:23.:10:27.

attempted murder and has been remanded in custody.

:10:28.:10:29.

He'll appear at Hull Crown Court later this month.

:10:30.:10:36.

A new University Technical College could be built in Hull to provide

:10:37.:10:39.

young people with the skills needed to work for companies like Siemens.

:10:40.:10:42.

The Endeavour school site has been earmarked as the likely location,

:10:43.:10:45.

An application for funding is now being put to

:10:46.:10:49.

If it goes ahead it will be open to pupils from the age of fourteen.

:10:50.:10:57.

I think that gives a few whole new range of opportunities to young

:10:58.:11:05.

people and parents. It sends the message out that anyone supplies are

:11:06.:11:10.

going to give highly paid jobs to this city. We want people from the

:11:11.:11:12.

city taking advantage of that. There are just two days to go

:11:13.:11:18.

until this year's local On Thursday, voters in Lincoln will

:11:19.:11:21.

decide who runs their city council. Not for the first time, Lincoln is

:11:22.:11:25.

at the centre of a closely`fought More from our

:11:26.:11:29.

Political Editor Tim Iredale. Elections in Lincoln are often nip

:11:30.:11:32.

and tuck affairs, where a number of So the main party leaders know

:11:33.:11:36.

there's much at stake here, where the city council has been controlled

:11:37.:11:42.

over the past three years by Labour. We have done a lot of work on the

:11:43.:11:59.

economy. Certainly on housing, we are planning on building 150 new

:12:00.:12:04.

council houses. We are paying the living wage. Lincoln has a serious

:12:05.:12:08.

problem with low pay. Meanwhile, the Conservatives will

:12:09.:12:12.

be hoping to win back votes in a Because of the huge imbalance on the

:12:13.:12:25.

council, we need to get more Conservatives in place to hold them

:12:26.:12:29.

to account, and to make the decisions which are more meaningful

:12:30.:12:30.

to the whole city. City of Lincoln Council sees Labour

:12:31.:12:37.

in control with 25 seats and the Conservatives

:12:38.:12:40.

in opposition with 8 seats. UKIP hope they'll benefit from the

:12:41.:12:42.

local elections taking place on the We are talking about housing,

:12:43.:12:56.

parking and jobs. These are three areas that people are talking to us

:12:57.:13:02.

about. We are offering eight strong economy and a fairer society.

:13:03.:13:04.

UKIP hope they'll benefit from the local elections taking place on the

:13:05.:13:07.

People say what do we had to do with local politics? People forget that

:13:08.:13:19.

directives come to Brussels to Whitehall. Everything you do in the

:13:20.:13:25.

council, everything that happens, is directly linked to Brussels, so I

:13:26.:13:31.

don't think that local politics is not intertwined with Brussels.

:13:32.:13:38.

So the political race for Lincoln steps up a gear this Thursday with

:13:39.:13:41.

a third of the city's 33 council seats up for grabs.

:13:42.:13:44.

How politically important is the City?

:13:45.:13:50.

There is a reason why political geeks and anoraks are so obsessed

:13:51.:13:57.

with this city, and that is because it gives us a big clue

:13:58.:13:58.

with this city, and that is because it gives us a big clue as to who is

:13:59.:14:02.

going to be running the country this time next year. At every general

:14:03.:14:07.

election for the last 40 years, the party who has won Lincoln has gone

:14:08.:14:11.

on to form the government of the day. That is what is known as a

:14:12.:14:18.

bellwether constituency. They will carry on fighting on local issues,

:14:19.:14:24.

but when the polls close on Thursday night, the national party leaders

:14:25.:14:27.

will be looking closely at the results here in Lincoln, and they

:14:28.:14:31.

will want to know what voters here are telling them. Thank you for

:14:32.:14:35.

watching. Making music and topping

:14:36.:14:37.

:14:38.:14:41.

happen. It is hilarious. Paul Benson took this of

The Spurn Lightship in Hull Marina I have just been given this night

:15:01.:15:17.

Mike. At 30 PM this afternoon, I'd closed the windows and the house and

:15:18.:15:22.

the book shop. Surprise, surprise, it never came. More fool him. I do

:15:23.:15:30.

not think that I said four o'clock at all. We will get the tape out. It

:15:31.:15:39.

is looking like tomorrow will be a really nice day. To enjoy it,

:15:40.:15:43.

because after that, things turn much more unsettled. There is the

:15:44.:15:49.

headline for Wednesday. A pleasant day to come. The little ridge of

:15:50.:15:54.

high pressure. We are going to see some rain from the near continent,

:15:55.:16:03.

and we have managed 23 degrees in Holt `` Hull. Scattered storms will

:16:04.:16:12.

come through in the next few hours. It is very hit and miss. Many will

:16:13.:16:17.

miss them all together. If you catch one, you will know about it. They

:16:18.:16:23.

will all be out of the way by midnight. It will be dry with clever

:16:24.:16:27.

spells. The lowest temperatures around ten or 11 Celsius. The sun

:16:28.:16:42.

rises in the morning at 4:51pm. `` 4:51am. There is the outside chance

:16:43.:16:51.

of a shower. As you can see from the graphic, just one or two showers

:16:52.:16:55.

possible. Very much the exception to the rule. A pleasant day with just a

:16:56.:17:05.

light and variable breeze. It is a couple of days down on why we have

:17:06.:17:10.

been this afternoon. 18 or 19 Celsius. 19 in Gainsborough. Some

:17:11.:17:15.

heavy rain at first on Thursday. Clearing later, and then it is

:17:16.:17:19.

showery on Friday and into the weekend. I don't think Mr Rhodes

:17:20.:17:29.

will be watching, but I'll will let you deal with him.

:17:30.:17:39.

Just days since making history by playing in the FA Cup final ` Hull

:17:40.:17:43.

City has told its fans that ticket prices are going up for next season.

:17:44.:17:47.

Supporters will have to pay nearly 30 per cent more

:17:48.:17:50.

Prices will rise above ?500 for the first time.

:17:51.:17:53.

Tolu, why has the club increased the price of passes?

:17:54.:17:57.

It really has been a season to remember for Hull City, Peter.

:17:58.:18:01.

As you say the FA Cup final, another season in the Premier League and a

:18:02.:18:05.

Now the club says it's looking to the future and it says in order

:18:06.:18:11.

Next season, the price of an adult season pass will range

:18:12.:18:18.

from just over ?500 for the South Stand to ?572 in the West Stand.

:18:19.:18:22.

That's compared to between ?395 and ?450 last season.

:18:23.:18:28.

The Editor of fan website, Amber Nectar, says it's

:18:29.:18:31.

The people of the city have not become what wealthy. You have two

:18:32.:18:49.

price matches properly. There is a real risk that a lot of people are

:18:50.:18:54.

going to be priced out. That would be a crying shame at a time when

:18:55.:19:02.

there has been interest in the club. It is a shame. We only watch on the

:19:03.:19:07.

telly. I will stretch my budget. The club say's it's bringing

:19:08.:19:19.

its prices in line with other clubs Aston Villa finished just above City

:19:20.:19:23.

in the league. But you can get a cheaper

:19:24.:19:26.

season ticket there at ?335. Their most expensive

:19:27.:19:29.

ticket is pricier though. Just below city in the table was

:19:30.:19:31.

West Bromwich Albion ` their highest priced season ticket is actually

:19:32.:19:35.

lower than Hull's cheapest pass. We did approach Hull City

:19:36.:19:37.

for an interview today ` but no one It is worth pointing out that Hull

:19:38.:19:41.

City froze its season ticket prices last season ` despite the club's

:19:42.:19:45.

promotion to the Premier League. This is another story we'd

:19:46.:19:48.

like your thoughts on. Is the club justified

:19:49.:19:53.

in raising the season ticket prices Should they have frozen prices for

:19:54.:19:58.

a second year running or increased Some schools in Lincolnshire say

:19:59.:20:03.

they might not be ready to provide free hot meals to pupils this

:20:04.:20:45.

September. All four to seven year olds must be

:20:46.:20:46.

offered a hot lunch under a new government scheme. Very few primary

:20:47.:20:51.

schools have kitchens in Lincolnshire, and the council says

:20:52.:20:53.

seven haven't managed to find a meal supplier. The Department for

:20:54.:20:56.

Education says the majority of schools are on track and ?150

:20:57.:20:59.

million has been allocated to help. We are doing lots of finding of new

:21:00.:21:05.

supplies. We are helping children on site as well. We have made some

:21:06.:21:07.

funding available as well to schools.

:21:08.:21:07.

A cancer charity is to set up a new mobile chemotherapy unit

:21:08.:21:11.

which will travel to rural parts of Lincolnshire to treat patients

:21:12.:21:14.

It's one of just seven units in the country to be maintained

:21:15.:21:18.

by the Hope for Tomorrow Charity at a cost of more than ?250,000.

:21:19.:21:22.

It'll be run by United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS

People have two travel such a long way for chemo therapy treatment

miles and petrol. And to have some time back. When you are ill, quality

:21:37.:21:38.

of life is very important. Five beaches

:21:39.:21:46.

across our region have been ranked as some of the best in the country.

:21:47.:21:49.

In Lincolnshire, Cleethorpes, Skegness,

:21:50.:21:51.

Sutton on Sea and Mablethorpe have been given blue flag status, which

:21:52.:21:54.

means their beaches are clean. But Hornsea is the only beach

:21:55.:21:56.

in East Yorkshire to receive it. Lincolnshire growers and designers

Pupils at a primary school in Deeping St James in Lincolnshire

:22:55.:22:57.

have reached number one of a chart of downloaded children's

:22:58.:22:59.

songs, beating 'You've Got a Friend In Me' from the film Toy Story

:23:00.:23:03.

Linchfield Primary School released the song called 'We Are The Young'

:23:04.:23:08.

last Friday and it got to the top in just an hour and a half.

:23:09.:23:12.

Jessica Lane has been to meet some of the stars.

:23:13.:23:19.

Number one on an iTunes chart of downloaded children's songs.

:23:20.:23:23.

That means this was the most popular in that particular chart.

:23:24.:23:28.

Plus more than 6,500 people have watched on YouTube.

:23:29.:23:32.

This is a picture taken by staff after the song reached

:23:33.:23:43.

It is really surprising, I had no idea that this was going to happen.

:23:44.:23:54.

It is... Hilarious. We just started off with two men saying that there

:23:55.:23:57.

were two men going to come up with this. It has gone to number one. It

:23:58.:24:00.

is made everyone happy. This is a picture taken

:24:01.:24:03.

by staff after the song reached number one in an hour and a half on

:24:04.:24:06.

Friday, beating You've Got A Friend In Me from the Toy Story film,

:24:07.:24:10.

and the song 'Happy Birthday'! They are talking about going into

music production and singing and playing instruments, and it is made

them realise all of the practice that they do is really worthwhile.

:24:25.:24:30.

This is the room that Store Van Music turned into a recording

:24:31.:24:34.

Linchfield is only the second school the company has

:24:35.:24:38.

worked with to release a single like this in the UK.

:24:39.:24:41.

Every class is involved in the chorus. There are just under 400

:24:42.:24:46.

kids in the school. They were all involved in the process of the song.

:24:47.:24:52.

Half of the money raised by the song goes to the school, and teachers say

:24:53.:24:56.

the bonus is the joy it brings the children every time they sing it.

:24:57.:25:02.

Let's get a recap of the national and regional headlines.

:25:03.:25:08.

The US Coast Guard agrees to resume its search for the British

:25:09.:25:21.

yachtsman. I'll city council say that extending its boundaries will

:25:22.:25:23.

help everyone in the area. Tomorrow's weather ` Mostly dry

:25:24.:25:25.

and bright with variable amounts of cloud and sunny spells and just

:25:26.:25:28.
