BBC Look North. The family of a woman from Hull call
for the investigation into her death to be reopened, after a coroner says
it can't be proven it was suicide. She deserves justice. Never should

The family of a young woman from Hull who suffered years of domestic
abuse are calling on the police to continue investigating her death.
Becky Day, who was 23, was found hanged in her flat in December.
But today Hull's Assistant Coroner recorded an open verdict `
saying their wasn't enough evidence to prove Becky intended to commit
Her boyfriend was arrested on suspicion of her murder, but was
Becky Day ` described as a happy outgoing girl who was fiercely
At her inquest today, her family, supporting one another, heard how
she suffered physical abuse at the hands of her boyfriend.
Back at home, Becky's father told me he would never believe
Our lives will never be the same again. No parent should ever have to
bury a child. To hear the abuse my daughters suffered breaks my heart,
because it is my job to protect my daughter. That is what you are meant
to do. It is your one job in life, to protect your daughter. Nobody
should have to go through what Becky went through.
Police found Becky critically injured at her home in Peel Place,
Her ex`boyfriend Liam Scott was arrested on suspicion of murder
The physical evidence investigated so far does not suggest anybody else
is responsible for Becky's death. So no evidence to suggest that Liam
Scott murdered Becky? No, there isn't.
The pair started a three`year relationship in 2010.
In September 2013, Scott was sent to prison for breaking Becky's nose.
In the early hours of December 29th, 2013, he told police he found Becky
This system coroner said that was not enough evidence to show that
Becky intended to take her life. I am hoping that more evidence will

I spoke to Jane Keeper from the domestic violence charity Refuge.
She told me too many women like Rebecca end up losing their lives.
It is terrible news. Another victim of domestic violence has lost her
life. I would like to send my condolences to her family. Do the
police treat domestic violence seriously enough? No, but they
aren't sufficiently trained to treat domestic violence victims
appropriately and to understand what the risks are and how best to
protect victims. Do as neighbours, friends, acquaintances often turn a
blind eye brother and getting involved when we hear things which
ring alarm bells `` turn a blind eye rather than getting involved. There
was a huge need for public campaigns. Everybody knows the
victim of domestic violence. We should be trained to know who to
turn to and what to do. Why do victims of domestic violence often
put up with it for so long and let that relationship continue? I am not
sure that they do. The most dangerous thing a domestic violence
victim can do is walk out the door. That is when most of the murders
take place. Domestic violence victims call refuge, the domestic
violence charity, all day and every day to get help. Very briefly,
message to anybody who is in a abusive relationship. The messages,
you are not alone, no matter what your abuser is saying. There is life
after domestic violence. Call the National domestic violence
helpline, get help. Very good to talk with you. Thank you so much.

We've been deployed here to conduct high visibility patrol,
an isolated incident and to give people peace of mind. What's been
involved here was licensed, but just how common is gun`related
back to 1995. However, firearms offences themselves are decreasing `
down 50% over the last five years to just over 5,000, with the Humberside
Policing Area reporting just 43 offences last year compared to 387
in Greater Manchester ` the highest figure for England and Wales.
However, firearms offences themselves are decreasing ` down 50%
. When more people have guns, you work in relating weapons in the home
where they are least secure. I think we should invest more time and
effort and energy in the monitoring of the safety of weapons in the
home. That is where they are most likely to be stolen if they are not
kept securely and where they are most likely to be misused by their
legal owners. Three people still remain in custody. The police are
still to identify a man shot dead here, at the heart of this
investigation. In macro Lincolnshire Fire and rescue service said a
number of properties have been flooded in South Lincolnshire in the

was bombed during World War 2 has The national picture house has been
derelict for more than 70 years, and, although it's already
a listed heritage site, there has been a longstanding campaign to make
sure it's preserved. But now
its future remains uncertain, For more than 70 Years,
this is how the former picture house has stood.
Since taking a direct hit by the Since taking a direct hit
by the Luftwaffe in the Second World those who died in Hull. But a
long`running campaign wants to turn But a long`running campaign wants to
turn it into a permanent memorial. A bomb blew out a lot of the
building, but still left a lot of the front intact. Campaigners have
had difficulty acquiring the site. It is currently in the hands of a
private owner, who is only selling or leasing certain parts. There were
three bidders battling it out, but the bid tried up at ?57,000. The
auctioneer revealed it was ?1000 away from being able to sell. The
vendors did bring the reserve down a bit. We came very close, within a
couple of thousand pounds. Eddie a deal will be done after the auction.
So more uncertainty. Those who live nearby have mixed views on what the
future should hold for the site. Another is a lot of heritage plans,
and that would be a good idea. Something pretty because it doesn't
look very pretty as you walk past. Somebody was going to make into
museum. Waste of time. The council has previously offered to buy the
site. We have been unable to contact the owner, despite numerous
attempts. Should efforts be made to preserve
the building? If you want to be in touch, here are the details.

It is overwhelming. I will never get bored of this. It will always be
overwhelming. Ian Lyall's sunset at Brough Haven
as the ship Cemsky makes Thank you for that. Good evening.
How are you? Very well. A couple of e`mails.
Brilliant forecast, I have never seen red blanket.
Self praise is no good. You got the forecast right, we will
make a note of it. The warning is one of very heavy
rain. There have been some torrential downpours working through
Lincolnshire and it has crossed the Humber. There has been heavy rain in
Hull area. It will slowly inched away northwards. Tomorrow, generally
a better day. Low pressure on the scene. A slow improvement expected
with showers becoming more isolated. Bank holiday Monday looks like a
nice day with sunshine. If you like your golf, you probably saw
Wentworth was treated to a monsoon this morning. It is the same rain
that has gone through Lincoln and it is heading north of the Humber. The
rain gradually losing its intensity. Further thundery showers
pushing in from the south. Overnight thundery showers to clear
out of the way but skies should brighten a little bit. The risk of a
few heavy showers, but I think the focus is to the west. A few in
Weston Park but it may be towards the coast. Top temperatures ranging
from 14 in Bridlington to 17 or 18 further south. Heavy downpours on
Saturday but it gradually improves on Sunday.
Is a bit soggy for anybody playing God tomorrow, is it?
I am playing golf tomorrow, you are right.
Traditional academic subjects like maths, creative ones like art,
All seen as part of a well rounded education.
Now one school in Lincolnshire has joined those
calling for mental health education to be added to the list.
They say it's an increasingly important subject with the modern
Others argue the topic should be left out of the classroom.
At Thomas Cowley High School in Donington,
a special assembly for pupils about self esteem and body confidence.
It's part of the school's mental health strategy.
But it's not a mandatory subject on the national curriculum.
Senior management here want the Government to change that.
We need it because we are living through something of a crisis in
towns of mental health teenagers. Schools need to be part of the
solution rather than part of the problem.
Around three children in every class suffer from a
And nearly 80,000 children and young people suffer
I think they ship teach it in school because you can find everything out
on Google but it is not always true. It would be important for some
people but not everyone has the same problems.
The Government says the curriculum gives teachers
the freedom to address issues that meet the needs of pupils,
Campaigners feel that doesnt go far enough.
Others say the subject has no place in school at all.
Schools have a big enough job and a very important job to teach the
children the subject of the curriculum. If schools are concerned
about mental health, of course they have mental health issues, they
should refer to the health service. Is the role of schools just to be
there to pass exams or should it be about more? About developing
character and building resistance and resilience? I think it is
something that is on the radar of the Department of education, but it
For now, it remains down to individual schools like Thomas
Cowley to take the initiative on how or if they teach the subject.
For campaigners the worry is that means some children will miss out.
Councillors have voted in favour of an extension to a drinking ban in
Boston, there has been a partial ban since 2007 but police are only able
to act if there's been a complaint about antisocial behaviour.
New laws next year could allow for a total ban on drinking alcohol
in public with a one thousand pound fine for offenders.
Thank you to everyone who got in contact with us on this story.
It's more than 40 years since steam trains were in regular

All of the six original P2 class engines were scrapped but a group
of enthusiasts refused to let the story end there.
The construction got under way with the cutting of giant pieces of metal
The torch still burns for the sea of age. It is a slightly nervous time
when you see the finished product begin to appear, there is a great
sense of satisfaction. These steel plate are being cut to form the
friends of a new locomotive. They will hold everything else in place.
In this case, the everything else is really special. The P2 was enormous.
They were scrapped. They were designed by Sir Nigel Gresley. It
fell to his grandson to play midwife this morning. He would never have
imagined that 70 years later, someone would start another one,
would he? Absolutely not, but he would be very excited. It indicates
the enormous esteem in which he was held. This process, or something
less mechanised, used to go on opened and a country that still
works, including in Doncaster. The birth of a brand`new steam engine is
a very rare thing. On this scale, it is truly a journey into the unknown.
This is going to be part of a steam engine. This is number 2007 in
existence. That is right. It formally exists, as of now. I can in

Hull`born singer Joe Longthorne has been diagnosed with throat cancer.
It's the second time he's been diagnosed with cancer.
On his website the 58`year`old said he was shocked
at the news but was 100% confident he will fight the disease.
He has many family members who still live in the city, and we wish him
all the best. Hull City defender James Chester is

at the Cannes Film Festival in the south of France,
promoting a feature film which he Ian Sharp's movie, called Pleasure
Island, is being screened as part of the festival, where he hopes it will
be picked up by a major distributor. Tom Brook sent this report
from Cannes, and it does contain Cannes has had the glamour of Nicole
Kidman would also Ian Sharpe from Scunthorpe. He is the star of
pleasure Island, the human drama telling the story of a soldier who
returns home to Grimsby. For Ian Sharpe,
movie. One location where Pleasure Island was being screened, he was
joined by the director, who felt buoyed up by the support he got by
the community in Pleasure Island because it doesn't
have a big`name star. The picture did make a favourable impression on
somebody. I liked it. I stayed until the end. All the Pleasure Island may
leave the festival without a distribution deal, it is still a win
win situation. It will advance the careers of those involved and show
very clearly you can choose a feature film in Grimsby and
Cleethorpes and earn respect. There has never been a movie boasting
Grimsby and Cleethorpes, and we purposefully we did that. I hope
people see it and think, that is a nice beach. The hope is Pleasure
Island will be screened in local cinemas and beyond from September.
Well done to Ian. We wish him well. Let's get a recap of the
national and regional headlines. Ukraine's soldiers suffer their

The family of a woman from Hull call for the police investigation
If you have any photos of the flooding in Lincolnshire, choppers
and e`mail. We were talking about the national picture house in Hull.
Tim says, the site should be made into a memorial for all the people
of England who lost their lives in the Blitz. Somebody else says, the
council should get it bought, do something that counts and have it
ready for 2017. David says, the site should be retained by the
authorities and become an attraction. Margaret says, pull it
down, we have a lot of eyesores. Jack says, if the president 's old,
something should be done with it, it looks scruffy. Thank you for those.
