with boot and ball may be settled by the smallest margins. That is all

:00:00.3:59:59

from us. Now Good evening, and welcome. The UK

:00:00.:00:10.

Independence Party is celebrating success in the local elections after

:00:11.:00:13.

winning eight council seats in our area overnight. In Hull, UKIP won

:00:14.:00:19.

one seat, beating one of Labour's longest`standing councillors. But

:00:20.:00:23.

their biggest gains have come in North East Lincolnshire, where the

:00:24.:00:29.

party won seven seats. Labour remain in overall charge of councils in

:00:30.:00:32.

Hull and Lincoln, but they've now lost control in North East

:00:33.:00:35.

Lincolnshire, as Tim Iredale reports.

:00:36.:00:43.

Hip, hip, hurray! Meet the new kids on the Block. UKIP's success in

:00:44.:00:46.

these elections has seen the party secure a solid power base in

:00:47.:00:50.

north`east Lincolnshire. I think today's result is a fantastic

:00:51.:00:53.

accumulation over the last ten years. We worked for this. We are

:00:54.:00:56.

now a party...well, the fruitcakes have come home. The results see

:00:57.:01:01.

Labour drop to 21 seats on North East Lincolnshire Council. The

:01:02.:01:06.

Conservatives are down to ten seats, with UKIP now boasting eight

:01:07.:01:08.

councillors on the authority. The Liberal Democrats have three.

:01:09.:01:14.

UKIP I think will be a temporary phenomenon, which will split, argue

:01:15.:01:17.

and divide on the council and possibly even in Europe, so the

:01:18.:01:20.

interesting thing about this election is the fact that the

:01:21.:01:23.

electorate has said to both main parties, "A plague on both your

:01:24.:01:25.

houses". For people like me who have long

:01:26.:01:36.

been Eurosceptics before the word was even invented, it confirms our

:01:37.:01:39.

views that people are very disconnected from the whole process,

:01:40.:01:42.

particularly the fact that Europe is seen as a distant organisation going

:01:43.:01:45.

against what British people and indeed in some cases the British

:01:46.:01:54.

government want. Last night saw Labour retain control of Hull City

:01:55.:01:59.

Council. UKIP's share of the vote was more than 25%, but that only

:02:00.:02:02.

resulted in them winning one seat, from the veteran Labour councillor

:02:03.:02:05.

David Gemmill, who served on the authority for 26 years. What do you

:02:06.:02:13.

make of the swing towards UKIP in some areas? There is certainly a

:02:14.:02:16.

general swing right across the country, and national politicians

:02:17.:02:20.

ought to take a great deal of note out of it. It tells you that it is

:02:21.:02:27.

the symptom of something that the public aren't happy with. Labour

:02:28.:02:35.

also kept control of the City of Lincoln Council after gaining two

:02:36.:02:40.

seats from the Conservatives. So a mixture of celebration and

:02:41.:02:42.

commiseration after these local elections. For some, the excitement

:02:43.:02:44.

was all too much. A Hull Academy's been criticised for

:02:45.:02:55.

rewarding up to 80 GCSE pupils a year by putting them up in a

:02:56.:02:58.

four`star hotel, as part of a residential revision weekend. The

:02:59.:03:03.

Sirius Academy says it's part of a plan to boost the grades of those

:03:04.:03:06.

who've been attending the extra study sessions. But anti`academy

:03:07.:03:09.

campaigners say it's a money`wasting gimmick by a school outside of local

:03:10.:03:12.

authority control, and with better budgets, as Sarah Corker reports.

:03:13.:03:19.

It's a stressful time of year for thousands of teenagers, and unlike

:03:20.:03:22.

many schools, the Sirius Academy in Hull put on extra revision sessions.

:03:23.:03:28.

But here, they go even further, rewarding some of those attending

:03:29.:03:31.

these classes with a stay at a hotel for a weekend of learning. All the

:03:32.:03:37.

intense work we've done, in the exam, I just fail it. I get a bit

:03:38.:03:42.

stressed and tired about all the work you are doing and no reward at

:03:43.:03:46.

the end. You could do it all from home yourself, couldn't you? No. At

:03:47.:03:50.

home, I don't think I would have the motivation. The academy runs two of

:03:51.:03:53.

these residentials every year for around 40 GSCE pupils. Since 2009,

:03:54.:03:58.

they have used hotels in Hull, Scarborough, York and North

:03:59.:04:04.

Lincolnshire. The school runs a rewards`based system for students,

:04:05.:04:07.

so good attendance and hard work is rewarded with things like huge

:04:08.:04:10.

impasses for lunch, tickets to football matches or special weekend

:04:11.:04:20.

revision workshops away. Some people say putting kids up in a hotel is a

:04:21.:04:25.

waste of public money. I disagree because we have had a huge impact in

:04:26.:04:28.

terms of performance of our children being able to be given that

:04:29.:04:31.

last`minute revision with the support of qualified members of

:04:32.:04:39.

staff. In 2009, 29% of pupils achieved five A* to C grades. By

:04:40.:04:49.

2013, that figure had risen to 65%. But some argue hotel revision trips

:04:50.:04:55.

are an unnecessary expense. It is almost like a bribe. We have now

:04:56.:04:59.

these elite schools that have been given extra finance and extra cash,

:05:00.:05:02.

and that's great for them, but it does nothing for fair and equitable

:05:03.:05:09.

systems for children elsewhere. Opening at weekends for revision,

:05:10.:05:12.

and trips away cost around ?5,000 a year, and those here say it has

:05:13.:05:14.

helped boost grades. A man has been charged with murder

:05:15.:05:25.

following a shooting in Melton in East Yorkshire on Tuesday night.

:05:26.:05:28.

38`year`old Jonathan Smith from Doncaster died from gunshot wounds.

:05:29.:05:32.

54`year`old Peter Guy from Melton will appear before magistrates in

:05:33.:05:35.

Beverley tomorrow charged with his murder. A 15`year`old boy has been

:05:36.:05:40.

charged with assault, and a third man has been released on police

:05:41.:05:44.

bail. A water park where children fell ill

:05:45.:05:48.

with a bug will stay closed this Bank Holiday Weekend. The site at

:05:49.:05:52.

East Park in Hull shut after a dozen people were infected by

:05:53.:05:56.

cryptosperidium last August. Hull City Council is considering the

:05:57.:06:00.

future of the play area. It's hoped salmon could return to

:06:01.:06:04.

the rivers of East Yorkshire for the first time in decades. The Barmby

:06:05.:06:08.

Barrage near Goole is being opened to allow the fish to migrate up the

:06:09.:06:12.

River Derwent. And as our rural affairs correspondent, Paul Murphy,

:06:13.:06:15.

reports, it could also provide a boost to the local economy.

:06:16.:06:26.

You, these are protected to keep water in the River Derwent from salt

:06:27.:06:32.

water in the river is. Now they being carefully open for just a few

:06:33.:06:38.

hours every day. `` River Ouse. Since Simon will be able to migrate

:06:39.:06:43.

from the sea all the way upstream into east and north Yorkshire. ``

:06:44.:06:50.

salmon. This is being opened on a four hour a day basis to allow these

:06:51.:06:55.

animals to get up and do what they want to do. Within a short period,

:06:56.:07:05.

there were salmon spawning in the River Wye. The River Derwent runs

:07:06.:07:08.

from the North York Moors down through East Yorkshire and into the

:07:09.:07:15.

River Ouse. It is the largest river system. More than 500 salmon and

:07:16.:07:21.

1400 sea trout could now entered the river every year, and this will add

:07:22.:07:25.

more than ?12 million to local economies. The salmon is arguably

:07:26.:07:31.

the most highly prized and iconic of fish is, and although it could be

:07:32.:07:36.

several years before its presence is fully felt her on the Derwent, there

:07:37.:07:40.

is a belief that communities along this river stand to benefit. The

:07:41.:07:47.

river joint villages are age of East Yorkshire, sometimes overlooked. So

:07:48.:07:52.

could anglers and tourists soon be spending more time and money here?

:07:53.:07:57.

It would help the economy because people would need more

:07:58.:08:00.

accommodation, more places to eat, camping facilities. It could help.

:08:01.:08:07.

It would have to be really well promoted. In other parts of the

:08:08.:08:11.

country, is highly prized fish attract quite an audience. In

:08:12.:08:15.

opening its doors for business, the River Derwent is hoping for similar

:08:16.:08:16.

success. In Rugby League, Hull FC took on

:08:17.:08:23.

top`of`the`table team Leeds Rhinos away in the Superleague. The match

:08:24.:08:26.

ended in defeat for the Black and Whites, though ` the final score

:08:27.:08:33.

Leeds 20, Hull FC six. Time for a look at the weekend weather.

:08:34.:08:36.

Good evening. An improvement to the bank holiday weekend, but tomorrow

:08:37.:08:41.

does not look pleasant at all. It will become largely dry through this

:08:42.:08:44.

evening. Clear spells at first, but towards the end of the night,

:08:45.:08:47.

thicker cloud will spread from the south. Temperatures overnight

:08:48.:08:50.

dropping to around ten or 11 degrees. A lot of cloud tomorrow. It

:08:51.:08:53.

will produce showers with long spells of rain. They will spread

:08:54.:08:57.

from the south and could be heavy, thundery and persistent. There could

:08:58.:09:00.

be wet spells of weather at times tomorrow. It will not be as warm as

:09:01.:09:04.

today. We should still get to around 15 or 16 degrees. Fewer showers on

:09:05.:09:08.

Sunday, so more in the way of dry weather, and then increasing amounts

:09:09.:09:12.

of brightness into Monday. The warmest day of the bank holiday

:09:13.:09:15.

weekend will see pleasant spells of sunshine, but unsettled for Tuesday.

:09:16.:09:28.

Thank you. Newsnight is on BBC Two assisting the fallout from the

:09:29.:09:29.

elections. That is it for me. you over to Peter Gibson and

:09:30.:09:33.

National forecast. The bank holiday weekend weather is

:09:34.:09:46.

not looking user-friendly although most places should get one decent

:09:47.:09:51.

day out of the three and some places will get two. We have low pressure,

:09:52.:10:01.

and there will be showers around over the next couple of days

:10:02.:10:04.

particularly. Sunshine breaking through now and again. It will pick

:10:05.:10:11.

up temperatures. Tonight we have rain. We have had thunderstorms in

:10:12.:10:19.

northern England. They are moving into Northern Ireland. A lot of dry

:10:20.:10:26.

weather will stop misty in the north-east. On Saturday, there is a

:10:27.:10:35.

mass of cloud and rain running around the low pressure. There will

:10:36.:10:43.

be heavy rain. It will make slow progress

:10:44.:10:44.
