European election results after the news where you are. Bye.

:00:00.3:59:59

Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North. Labour and UKIP look set to

:00:00.:00:11.

be the big winners in the European elections in our area. The results

:00:12.:00:16.

are currently being declared in the Yorkshire and Humber region. Our

:00:17.:00:19.

political editor Tim Iredale reports from the count in Leeds.

:00:20.:00:22.

Well, the procedure here tonight is a bit like the Eurovision Song

:00:23.:00:24.

Contest. Counting has been taking place at local authority districts

:00:25.:00:27.

across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire today and over the next few minutes

:00:28.:00:31.

the results will be phoned in across the Yorkshire and Humber region to

:00:32.:00:34.

this results coordination centre in Leeds and then we will know how the

:00:35.:00:38.

various districts have voted in the European elections, and we will know

:00:39.:00:41.

who wins the six seats which are up for grabs here in Yorkshire and the

:00:42.:00:45.

Humber. Now, already we understand that it has been a good night for

:00:46.:00:51.

UKIP across the region. We understand Jane Collins, the East

:00:52.:00:54.

Yorkshire`based candidate, who is number one on the list, she has been

:00:55.:00:57.

elected and Amjab Bashir, the number two on the list, the Yorkshire

:00:58.:01:01.

`based businessman who was born in Pakistan, he also is on his way to

:01:02.:01:13.

Brussels. So UKIP have doubled their total number of MEPs so far. Labour

:01:14.:01:17.

reckon they also have doubled their MEPs from one to two. The worried

:01:18.:01:22.

parties here are the Liberal Democrats. A few months ago, Edward

:01:23.:01:28.

Scott, one of their MEPs, was on the floor not looking very happy. They

:01:29.:01:33.

know they are going to struggle to keep any MEPs in this region

:01:34.:01:37.

tonight. The Green Party say they are quietly confident at perhaps

:01:38.:01:40.

sneaking in and winning one of the six MEPs. One thing we do know for

:01:41.:01:45.

sure is the turnout. Just over 32% in Yorkshire and the Humber saw one

:01:46.:01:49.

in three people take part in these elections.

:01:50.:01:55.

And we'll have the results for you in our breakfast bulletins.

:01:56.:02:03.

More than 500 volunteers have joined the Lincolnshire Police Force a year

:02:04.:02:06.

since the Police and Crime Commissioner launched a campaign to

:02:07.:02:10.

recruit a thousand. Getting them in place has cost more than six hundred

:02:11.:02:14.

thousand pounds, money some argue should have been spent on employing

:02:15.:02:17.

full time officers. Tolu Adeoye reports.

:02:18.:02:23.

Kitted out for his first day in the field with Lincolnshire police.

:02:24.:02:25.

20`year`old student Jacob Mason is one of 500 volunteers taken on in

:02:26.:02:29.

the first year of a project to get 1000 people working for the force

:02:30.:02:34.

for free. Today he is part of an operation hunting for contraband in

:02:35.:02:38.

Grantham. We are just waiting for the sniffer

:02:39.:02:41.

dogs to come and sniff out the store. Looking for anything, hides

:02:42.:02:45.

or anything counterfeit or illegal. From volunteering in the police, I

:02:46.:02:49.

am definitely getting a foot in. And possibly a career in the future.

:02:50.:02:55.

The new recruits include support workers like Jacob, specials with

:02:56.:02:58.

the same power as regular officers, as well as cadets in the countries

:02:59.:03:04.

first voluntary PCSOs. I am absolutely delighted. This is a

:03:05.:03:08.

milestone for us. It is a 1000 challenge, that's an ambition, but

:03:09.:03:11.

it shows that we have struck a chord there with many, many people in

:03:12.:03:14.

Lincolnshire who want to do something for their communities.

:03:15.:03:19.

Lincolnshire police have spent around ?630,000 recruiting and

:03:20.:03:22.

training the volunteers it has so far. That amount of money could pave

:03:23.:03:27.

the starting salary of around 25 officers for a year. The force,

:03:28.:03:30.

though, says that for every pound it spends on volunteers, it makes back

:03:31.:03:32.

?4. That is a principle for me and my

:03:33.:03:41.

colleagues in the federation. If there is money available it should

:03:42.:03:44.

be spent providing more front line police officers. That's not to decry

:03:45.:03:48.

the work that the volunteers will do. The force has been hugely

:03:49.:03:51.

professional in the way that it has gone about recruiting the right

:03:52.:03:55.

people and trying to put them in the right places.

:03:56.:03:57.

Back in Grantham, it has been a successful day for Jacob's team. It

:03:58.:04:01.

is down to him to photograph the evidence. After today's operation,

:04:02.:04:05.

he says he is more convinced than ever he made the right decision

:04:06.:04:09.

volunteering. The Commissioner needs 500 more like him to hit its target

:04:10.:04:13.

by 2016. Tolu Adeoye, BBC Look North.

:04:14.:04:29.

Now time to get the latest weather forecast with Jennifer Bartram.

:04:30.:04:36.

Hello again, good evening. After the showers we have seen today it is

:04:37.:04:41.

actually a dry night in store for many of us with some clear spells.

:04:42.:04:45.

Under those clear skies, we could well see some patches of mist and

:04:46.:04:48.

fog in places. Temperatures, overnight, will fall back to around

:04:49.:04:51.

nine or ten Celsius and the winds will be light. Into Monday, it is a

:04:52.:04:55.

dry start with some bright spells through the morning. However, as we

:04:56.:04:58.

head into the afternoon, there are going to be some sharp showers

:04:59.:05:00.

popping up temperatures tomorrow Good evening to you. Tomorrow the

:05:01.:05:12.

weather will be a little like a box of chocolate, you don't know what

:05:13.:05:16.

you are going to get until you head out. The weather was clear cut

:05:17.:05:22.

today, sunshine in the Midlands and the north.

:05:23.:05:27.

Tomorrow, there's going to be a mix of everything across the country and

:05:28.:05:30.

it will be changing a lot from morning into the afternoon and into

:05:31.:05:34.

the evening. This is what the weather is going to look like in the

:05:35.:05:38.

early hours, rain in the south-east, showers dotted around across western

:05:39.:05:43.

areas, and as far as the headline goes for Bank Holiday Monday, we'll

:05:44.:05:48.

call it sunshine and thundery showers, because they'll be hefty

:05:49.:05:52.

later on in the afternoon on Monday. This is what it starts like in the

:05:53.:05:56.

course of the morning. Note it is splodges of blue indicating the

:05:57.:06:00.

rainfall. They keep changing and moving into different places, there

:06:01.:06:03.

is a lot of sunshine coming through. In terms of the thundery downpours,

:06:04.:06:07.

we think the worst will be through this portion here whereas across the

:06:08.:06:12.

east, probably talking ability cloud and rain on and off with a bit of

:06:13.:06:17.

sunshine in-between. On

:06:18.:06:18.
