Actions in Ukraine and Nat C Good evening and welcome to

:00:00.:00:00.

BBC Look North. Plans to ban street drinking

:00:00.:00:00.

in one Lincolnshire town. Every street corner, corner, people

:00:07.:00:19.

are drinking. It is threatening. A murder investigation begins

:00:20.:00:40.

after a man is shot dead Is this the smallest lamb

:00:41.:00:43.

in the world? Join me for the latest in the

:00:44.:00:54.

weather. Banning drinking

:00:55.:00:58.

in public places will criminalise That's the view of one organisation

:00:59.:01:00.

opposed to a plan for a drinking ban Boston Borough Councillors meet

:01:01.:01:05.

tonight to talk about introducing the ban which comes after police

:01:06.:01:09.

figures show crime linked to daytime drinking is far higher in Boston

:01:10.:01:12.

than the rest of Lincolnshire. In a moment we'll hear

:01:13.:01:15.

from the Freedom Association about their concerns but first Jake

:01:16.:01:18.

Zuckerman reports from the town. a public consultation in which 97%

:01:19.:02:08.

wanted a total ban. Yes, it would be nice in some ways. It is unfortunate

:02:09.:02:12.

for the decent people who might want a picnic with a glass of wine in the

:02:13.:02:17.

park. It has got worse over the past few years. Never seen so many drugs

:02:18.:02:20.

as you see now. Since 2007, Legislation planned for next year

:02:21.:02:38.

will allow a total ban for all alcohol drinking to be imposed in

:02:39.:02:46.

public areas. Some councillors want any plan to cover the entire

:02:47.:02:54.

borough. Helen organises litter patrols, where volunteers constantly

:02:55.:02:59.

find discarded beer cans. I think the impact of a town centre ban will

:03:00.:03:05.

send people to the outlying areas and to their villages, and drink

:03:06.:03:13.

there, on the nature reserves. This police statistics show the scale of

:03:14.:03:19.

the problem. In 2013, 9.1% of all police incident in Boston were

:03:20.:03:22.

alcohol`related. That is considerably higher than the

:03:23.:03:27.

Lincolnshire average of 6.6%. In the last six years, the number of

:03:28.:03:30.

off`licences in the town has increased by more than two thirds,

:03:31.:03:37.

from 35 to 59. Police boat and 96 people in the streets drinking, last

:03:38.:03:47.

year. The older generation sometimes feel it is daunting coming into the

:03:48.:03:52.

town centre, because if there are groups of individuals that are under

:03:53.:03:58.

the influence of alcohol, they feel it is difficult for them to feel

:03:59.:04:03.

secure while there, and shop. While public support for drinking ban in

:04:04.:04:06.

Boston may be high, the legislation to make it possible is still some

:04:07.:04:14.

way off. Councillors may vote for this, but

:04:15.:04:18.

what has been the police response to this? They will have to it.

:04:19.:04:25.

The police and crime commission, Alan Hardwick, says he supports

:04:26.:04:29.

tougher measures to try and prevent irresponsible street drinking, which

:04:30.:04:34.

has a negative impact on society and complete anti`social behaviour. He

:04:35.:04:39.

says tackling it is a high priority for the police, and he has some

:04:40.:04:43.

meetings scheduled soon with local MP Matt Simmons and the State

:04:44.:04:47.

Minister for crime prevention, Norman Baker is, to discuss the

:04:48.:05:01.

specific issues Boston faces. I spoke to Joe Hart about whether a

:05:02.:05:06.

ban on drinking in public everywhere is a good way to reduce anti`social

:05:07.:05:13.

behaviour. Not at all. People are already drink alcohol in public are

:05:14.:05:20.

not going to be dissuaded by this. If drinking ban would stop the drugs

:05:21.:05:23.

and bad behaviour, you would welcome it and it has got to be a good thing

:05:24.:05:32.

hasn't hurt `` stop the drinking and bad behaviour.

:05:33.:05:40.

Filip says, I cannot see why people should be allowed to drink alcohol

:05:41.:05:44.

in public anyway. Weren't many people think like that? I don't

:05:45.:05:49.

think so. When people realise it will restrict their behaviour, they

:05:50.:05:52.

will not be allowed to do things they enjoy in public, like having a

:05:53.:05:56.

picnic and a glass of wine, so they will not be fans of this. Although

:05:57.:06:00.

people do not drink in public like this. It will only affect those who

:06:01.:06:07.

drink and at Berkeley. Those people are already breaking the law.

:06:08.:06:17.

Maybe you don't live in one of these areas were drugs in the street at

:06:18.:06:24.

causing bad behaviour `` where people drinking in the street are

:06:25.:06:31.

causing bad behaviour. They will not have the time to focus on the small

:06:32.:06:34.

number of individuals that cause these problems. But I will be taken

:06:35.:06:41.

up by the somebody having a glass of wine with a picnic in the park,

:06:42.:06:45.

doing something reasonable. When was the last time you sat in a Park

:06:46.:06:50.

having a can of lighter? It is a very small number of people. In

:06:51.:06:54.

summer, I like to have a glass of wine with a picnic in the park. I am

:06:55.:06:58.

responsible. Why should I be criminalised? Very good to talk to

:06:59.:07:01.

you. Do you agree with the

:07:02.:07:04.

Freedom Association that a ban is Or is a blanket ban needed

:07:05.:07:07.

to solve the problem? Is it fair that this should cover

:07:08.:07:11.

everyone We will have some of your responses

:07:12.:07:50.

before the end of the programme. That meeting is tonight and we

:07:51.:07:53.

should have a decision on that in our late bulletin. Thank you for

:07:54.:07:56.

watching. In a moment: Senior politicians make

:07:57.:08:01.

a final scramble for votes ahead of tomorrow's council and Euro

:08:02.:08:05.

elections. Police remain in the quiet

:08:06.:08:10.

East Yorkshire village of Melton tonight after a man was killed

:08:11.:08:13.

there yesterday evening. Officers say he suffered serious

:08:14.:08:15.

injuries and may have been shot. Three people are in police custody,

:08:16.:08:18.

two men and a 15`year`old boy. A massive police presence,

:08:19.:08:22.

road closures in Melton, and last night, extra security

:08:23.:08:27.

at Hull Royal Infirmary. It follows what neighbours described

:08:28.:08:35.

as the sound of gun shots at a house on Melton Old Road

:08:36.:08:38.

at five o'clock yesterday evening. An incident leaving one man dead,

:08:39.:08:41.

and another in hospital with serious,

:08:42.:08:48.

but non`life`threatening injuries. There appears to have been a dispute

:08:49.:08:58.

which has led to these consequences. And we are looking for a firearm? We

:08:59.:09:05.

believe the injuries are consistent with a firearm being discharged. We

:09:06.:09:17.

were sitting with friends in the garden having a few glasses of

:09:18.:09:25.

wine. We heard a bang. It's odd nothing, really. We were just having

:09:26.:09:30.

a drink and then we had lots of silence. For something like that up

:09:31.:09:38.

in our doorstep, it is surprisingly. Two men and a 15`year`old boy remain

:09:39.:09:48.

under arrest. I spoke to the family and mother of the deceased, who came

:09:49.:09:54.

to pay tribute to a son who is now at the centre of a murder enquiry.

:09:55.:09:59.

Scenes of crime officers have been trying to determine the chain of

:10:00.:10:02.

events which led to the injury of one man and the death of another.

:10:03.:10:08.

Not many people knew them. It has been a family dispute, I understand,

:10:09.:10:15.

and it got out of hand. Formal identification of the dead man has

:10:16.:10:19.

still to take place, with police investigations still continuing,

:10:20.:10:33.

although tonight, a family mourns. Hometown`macro has the highest

:10:34.:10:39.

number of repossessions. According to a survey, one in 79 homes was

:10:40.:10:45.

taken back in the last year. Energy companies planning to drill for oil

:10:46.:10:48.

in the Lincolnshire Wolds said there could be 10 million barrels of oil

:10:49.:10:50.

per need the services. A spy plane from RAF Waddington

:10:51.:11:05.

remains grounded after being sent to help search for 200 kidnapped school

:11:06.:11:08.

girls from Nigeria. The Sentinel left Lincolnshire

:11:09.:11:11.

on Sunday morning, but had to land in Senegal

:11:12.:11:13.

because of technical problems. The Ministry of Defence says work to

:11:14.:11:15.

repair the aircraft is continuing. A Typhoon jet

:11:16.:11:18.

from RAF Coningsby has been given a make`over to commemorate the 70th

:11:19.:11:22.

anniversary of D`Day next month. The aircraft has been given

:11:23.:11:26.

the black stripes that all British planes wore to make them easier to

:11:27.:11:29.

recognise and avoid friendly fire. The Typhoon showed off

:11:30.:11:32.

its new paint job this afternoon. The recognisable role of the typhoon

:11:33.:11:51.

was head above the skies of Lincolnshire today `` the

:11:52.:11:56.

recognisable roar. It was performing spectacular moves. There was

:11:57.:11:59.

something different about this fighter. We have put this on for the

:12:00.:12:08.

anniversary of D`day, invasion stripes. The stripes really make

:12:09.:12:22.

this unique. The black and white markings replicate those seen on the

:12:23.:12:27.

Hawker typhoons used in World War II. There are none left in existence

:12:28.:12:32.

that can still fly. One man who knows the importance of those

:12:33.:12:35.

printed on stripes is better and John Byrne. It was for recognition.

:12:36.:12:51.

They fired at anything. By having those on, it was easier to know they

:12:52.:13:05.

were friendly. This modern Typhoon flew alongside this, and original

:13:06.:13:11.

Spitfire that took part in the D`day landings. Spitfire are amazing.

:13:12.:13:19.

They're not difficult fly at all. They were built for careful handling

:13:20.:13:28.

to could concentrate on fighting and not flying. The pilots say it is an

:13:29.:13:40.

honour and a privilege to fly these planes, and they will be doing

:13:41.:13:47.

chateau at eight shows across the country. `` they will be doing so at

:13:48.:13:50.

air shows across the county. Still to come: The plan to repeat

:13:51.:14:10.

the success of the Larkin toes that were dotted around Hull. And small,

:14:11.:14:15.

but not silent. The Lambert could break a record.

:14:16.:14:22.

Small and not silent, tonight's photograph is of sunrise, taken by

:14:23.:14:32.

Emma Anderson. Thank you for that. Another one tomorrow. Quite a few

:14:33.:14:43.

here. Mike in long wrist and said, can you ask your mate what happens

:14:44.:14:47.

to the rain, I did not water on the strength of his forecasts and have

:14:48.:14:51.

hundreds of dead plants, is he going to reimburse me?

:14:52.:14:55.

The forecast was for scattered thunderstorms, and if you look in a

:14:56.:14:58.

dictionary, scattered means scattered, so some people will get

:14:59.:15:03.

them and some people want. We got it wrong, then.

:15:04.:15:07.

Plenty of water tonight for your plans.

:15:08.:15:11.

Bit late now. Are warning of heavy rain. You don't

:15:12.:15:15.

have to water up this evening because there is plenty coming.

:15:16.:15:20.

Tomorrow, the rain is coming a bit more quickly than we thought. There

:15:21.:15:25.

will be a scattering of thunderstorms tomorrow. Trouble has

:15:26.:15:35.

been brewing over France today. The rain has jumped across the Channel.

:15:36.:15:44.

It will move north westwards through the night. Hometown`macro has been

:15:45.:15:48.

about the warmest place in the country today, with around 22

:15:49.:15:54.

Celsius. It is very nice but that we will see cloud thickening. There

:15:55.:16:07.

could be some localised flooding in places. A wet start across these

:16:08.:16:26.

more western areas. The rain will quickly pull away north westwards.

:16:27.:16:33.

We will see a scattering of thunder showers. Top afternoon temperatures,

:16:34.:16:57.

15 or 16. 20 Celsius in Lane. Scattered showers over the weekend.

:16:58.:17:05.

Mike says, I will continue to watch look North four is informed content.

:17:06.:17:10.

As for the weather, I will treat you as a guide. He says, and he is not

:17:11.:17:17.

as pretty as the other presenter. He is not on about you there, is it?

:17:18.:17:21.

No. Today has seen the last full day

:17:22.:17:25.

of campaigning in the Local Politicians have been out

:17:26.:17:29.

in force across East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

:17:30.:17:32.

in a last`minute push for votes. After the welcome from his

:17:33.:17:54.

conservative opponents, Ed Miliband tot housing in Lincoln. The house he

:17:55.:17:59.

really wants is the one currently occupied by this man. David Cameron

:18:00.:18:05.

was campaigning a few miles away in your work with Boris Johnson.

:18:06.:18:10.

Council elections will take place tomorrow in Hull, Lincoln and

:18:11.:18:14.

north`east Lincolnshire. A third of council seats in these three

:18:15.:18:18.

authorities will be up for grabs. Meanwhile, voters everywhere can

:18:19.:18:24.

take part in European elections to decide who represents them in the

:18:25.:18:27.

European Parliament. The ballot paper will look something like this.

:18:28.:18:31.

He will put a cross by the party of your choice, and the number of seats

:18:32.:18:36.

that party secures depends on the percentage vote they receive

:18:37.:18:45.

tomorrow. Six MEPs will represent Yorkshire and Humber region. Five

:18:46.:18:49.

MEPs will represent the East Midlands region, covers

:18:50.:18:53.

Lincolnshire. Many people have sent in their ballot papers by post, but

:18:54.:18:57.

I asked some voters in Hull whether they would be making the trip to the

:18:58.:19:02.

polling station. I always vote because if I don't, it is a vote

:19:03.:19:09.

wasted. Are you voting tomorrow? Yes. I will fill the form in and I

:19:10.:19:15.

am ready. Will you be voting tomorrow. No, because I don't

:19:16.:19:21.

believe in any of the parties. At the minute, I will not vote for any

:19:22.:19:25.

of them. I you voting tomorrow? Yes. It is important because the

:19:26.:19:31.

country is going down the pan. It is our democratic right. In order to

:19:32.:19:37.

have an opinion you have to be able to substantiate it. I think it is

:19:38.:19:44.

important. Polling stations will be open from 7am until ten p.m..

:19:45.:19:52.

Thanks for all your comments about the rise in season ticket

:19:53.:19:55.

Russ Wilcox was selling passes for last budget for next season. The

:19:56.:21:00.

fans are the life and soul of the football club. It is nice to give

:21:01.:21:06.

that personal touch. There are some great fixtures look forward to. It

:21:07.:21:11.

is nice to give a bit back. They were big and bright,

:21:12.:21:16.

and they brought ?1 million Now those behind the giant toads

:21:17.:21:19.

that appeared around the city want to repeat their success in time

:21:20.:21:25.

for City of Culture. Four years ago, Hull experienced

:21:26.:21:28.

an amphibian takeover. For ten weeks, the city streets

:21:29.:21:31.

were home to 40 giant toads and visitors loved it, with more than

:21:32.:21:38.

100,000 people coming to see them. It even inspired a similar project

:21:39.:21:46.

in Australia, this time with koalas. We were so inspired by this. It was

:21:47.:21:57.

fun and friendly. It was a family kind of thing. We thought, we will

:21:58.:22:03.

do something inspired by toad but different. There will be artists

:22:04.:22:12.

getting involved and they will be around 70 things dotted around Hull.

:22:13.:22:16.

It is hoped they will be even more successful than the toad 's

:22:17.:22:21.

upbringing in visitors. One person has come up with the idea of which

:22:22.:22:26.

shows that can be transferred `` transformed by each artist. They

:22:27.:22:31.

will move around the place. There is also this concept of caravans. That

:22:32.:22:35.

is a reflection of an amazing industry locally. I am really taken

:22:36.:22:45.

by things coming in and out of the port. I came up with a cute

:22:46.:22:55.

container. The sculpture ideas were on display in Beverley Minster

:22:56.:23:00.

today, but they will tour the county until August, when the final designs

:23:01.:23:07.

will be chosen. What do you think of that? Let me know what you would

:23:08.:23:15.

like to see. I wonder what happened to my toad. I think it went to live

:23:16.:23:16.

in a garden in Hull. Hull is in the top ten

:23:17.:23:23.

of the happiest places to live in the country,

:23:24.:23:26.

according to a survey of 50 thousand Hull came seventh

:23:27.:23:29.

in the whole country. The survey also shows Hull was

:23:30.:23:33.

second only to Harrogate as the It is a great place to live,

:23:34.:23:51.

darling. Very friendly. I came back last week. It is really nice. I love

:23:52.:24:00.

it here and I love the people. We have always got a smile on our

:24:01.:24:03.

faces. It helps everybody else smile. Because of Greek culture 2017

:24:04.:24:09.

and Hull City getting to Wembley, the Derby, it is a fantastic city.

:24:10.:24:15.

One thing after another at the moment. Great news.

:24:16.:24:19.

The owners of a lamb born in Lincolnshire six weeks ago say

:24:20.:24:23.

they think he's the smallest in the world.

:24:24.:24:25.

"Titch", who weighed less than half a bag of sugar at birth lives

:24:26.:24:29.

near Spalding and has been adopted by the family dogs.

:24:30.:24:32.

Six weeks old, Titch is Belinda's little lamb.

:24:33.:24:42.

There is no official record for the world's smallest lamb, but this

:24:43.:24:54.

I never thought of worrying him on the first day. I was more concerned

:24:55.:25:09.

about keeping alive. I decided to wear on day four.

:25:10.:25:21.

The other lamb is Titch's cousin, and is a week younger.

:25:22.:25:26.

But Titch prefers the company of the house pets.

:25:27.:25:33.

He identifies with the dogs more, definitely. It follows them round.

:25:34.:25:39.

I'm sure he thinks he is a dog. This home video shows

:25:40.:25:43.

their relationship started early. The dogs licked Titch clean

:25:44.:25:45.

when he was first born He is such a character and so

:25:46.:25:57.

funny. It would be ideal doing films.

:25:58.:26:01.

When he's bigger, Titch will play in the garden, so can eat

:26:02.:26:04.

Which might stop him nibbling everything else!

:26:05.:26:10.

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

:26:11.:26:16.

The Home Secretary told the police Federation to carry out reforms of

:26:17.:26:22.

the government will do it for you. And plans to ban street drinking in

:26:23.:26:26.

Boston, but opponents say it is the wrong approach.

:26:27.:26:31.

Has already drink and are badly are already breaking the law and the

:26:32.:26:33.

police have the powers to deal with them. Adding new rules will not stop

:26:34.:26:39.

that. Tomorrow's weather:

:26:40.:26:51.

Response coming in and drinking in public places. Kieren says, they

:26:52.:27:00.

need to ban the really cheap alcohol sold in shops and supermarkets and

:27:01.:27:10.

lower the cost of jinxing pods. `` lower the cost of drinks in pubs.

:27:11.:27:17.

Sunday else says, there is no need to drink in the street. Another

:27:18.:27:21.

person says, who is going to police it? Sue says, I can see the problem

:27:22.:27:30.

with people drinking in public as long as they behave responsibly. It

:27:31.:27:42.

is being discussed tonight I Boston Borough Council and

:27:43.:28:09.
