finish one ahead of Shane Lowry of Ireland. And that is all the sport.

There's more throughout the Hello from BBC Look North. More than

:00:00.:00:10.

500 volunteers have joined the Lincolnshire Police Force a year

:00:11.:00:13.

since the Police and Crime Commissioner launched a campaign to

:00:14.:00:17.

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

:00:18.:00:21.

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

:00:22.:00:24.

full time officers. Tolu Adeoye reports.

:00:25.:00:30.

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

:00:31.:00:33.

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

:00:34.:00:37.

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

:00:38.:00:42.

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

:00:43.:00:46.

Grantham. We are just waiting for the sniffer

:00:47.:00:50.

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

:00:51.:00:55.

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

:00:56.:00:59.

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

:01:00.:01:03.

The new recruits include support workers like Jacob, specials with

:01:04.:01:06.

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

:01:07.:01:11.

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

:01:12.:01:16.

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

:01:17.:01:20.

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

:01:21.:01:23.

Lincolnshire who want to do something for their communities.

:01:24.:01:28.

Lincolnshire police have spent around ?630,000 recruiting and

:01:29.:01:31.

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

:01:32.:01:38.

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

:01:39.:01:41.

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

:01:42.:01:46.

?4. That is a principle for me and my

:01:47.:01:49.

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

:01:50.:01:53.

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

:01:54.:01:56.

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

:01:57.:02:05.

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

:02:06.:02:09.

people and trying to put them on the right places. Back in Grantham, it

:02:10.:02:12.

has been a successful day for Jacob's team. It is down to him to

:02:13.:02:15.

photograph the evidence. After today's operation, he says he is

:02:16.:02:19.

more convinced than ever he made the right decision volunteering. The

:02:20.:02:23.

Commissioner needs 500 more like him to hit its target by 2016.

:02:24.:02:29.

The results of elections for the European Parliament ` held last

:02:30.:02:32.

Thursday ` are being announced this evening. Voters in the East Midlands

:02:33.:02:35.

region, which includes Lincolnshire, will elect five members. The count

:02:36.:02:38.

is being held in Kettering. Six MEPS will be elected in the Yorkshire and

:02:39.:02:42.

Humber region, with the count in Leeds. Both regions will announce

:02:43.:02:46.

results after ten this evening. And we hope to be able to bring you

:02:47.:02:50.

those results if they arrive in time on the late Look North at 22.50pm.

:02:51.:02:54.

The North Lincolnshire town of Brigg has hosted an contestants from

:02:55.:02:57.

around the world in the World Quadrathlon Championships. It's the

:02:58.:03:01.

first time the UK's held the multi`event sport at this level,

:03:02.:03:03.

which involves swimming, kayaking, cycling and running. Our reporter

:03:04.:03:09.

Crispin Rolfe was there. Under starters order in the first

:03:10.:03:12.

ever World Quadrathlon Championships to be held in the UK. The River

:03:13.:03:20.

Ancholme turned 1500 metre race track, as Brigg put on a show of

:03:21.:03:25.

endurance. But what is a quadrathlon? You start with

:03:26.:03:34.

triathlons and then you add on the kayak when you want more of a

:03:35.:03:39.

challenge, and this is a fantastic location for it, you have got the

:03:40.:03:41.

rubber on your doorstep and some cracking background. So the added

:03:42.:03:44.

extra of a 7km kayak. But with Scunthorpe boasting its own European

:03:45.:03:47.

Quadrathlon Champion Steve Clark, the sport is firmly on the local

:03:48.:03:57.

road map. Swimming, running, cycling and kayaking, for disciplines

:03:58.:04:05.

instead of three. The European Championships has already been

:04:06.:04:08.

here, and now for the first time, the world Championships. The bike

:04:09.:04:14.

race is 36 K, a challenge for all but the leaders. Then followed by a

:04:15.:04:18.

ten K run in what is surely one of the most gruelling events going.

:04:19.:04:30.

Britain's Steve King came in fifth. I managed to fill `` if you back on

:04:31.:04:40.

the bike. For Brigg, though, the race to host the UK's first World

:04:41.:04:44.

Championships is won. Though right now everyone needs a breather.

:04:45.:04:50.

Hull Kingston Rovers have gone three games unbeaten in front of a home

:04:51.:04:54.

crowd. They beat bottom side London Broncos 48`16 at Craven Park. The

:04:55.:05:01.

court said he was proud of the win even though dated their food off the

:05:02.:05:05.

gas for the second half. Now the weather with Jennifer

:05:06.:05:06.

Bartram. Hello. Good evening. The showers

:05:07.:05:17.

that many of us have seen today will clear through the course of this

:05:18.:05:20.

evening and overnight we will be left with a dry night, with some

:05:21.:05:24.

clear spells and we could just see some patchy mist or fog for tomorrow

:05:25.:05:27.

morning. Temperatures overnight will fall back to around nine or ten

:05:28.:05:31.

Celsius and the winds will stay fairly light for the south east. So

:05:32.:05:35.

it is a bright start to Bank Holiday Monday, some spells of sunshine

:05:36.:05:38.

immediately and then the cloud will build into the afternoon and we will

:05:39.:05:41.

see some further showers breaking out. Like today, some of those

:05:42.:05:44.

showers could be heavy and thundery in places. Temperatures tomorrow

:05:45.:05:47.

getting up to highs of 17 Celsius. That is 63 Fahrenheit. As we go

:05:48.:05:51.

through the rest of the week, some heavy rain will make its way up from

:05:52.:05:55.

the south east too as we go through Tuesday and that is going to hang

:05:56.:05:59.

around into Wednesday. Some real downpours on the way and highs of 14

:06:00.:06:01.

Celsius. Good evening. Some of us had a

:06:02.:06:14.

pretty good soaking. It downpours around with thunder and lightning.

:06:15.:06:20.

It wasn't so bad everywhere. The satellite picture across the

:06:21.:06:22.

Midlands, East Anglia and the south coast, the Isle of Wight. A

:06:23.:06:27.

beautiful end to the day. You
