all from the BBC News at Six - so it's goodbye from

:00:00.:00:00.

Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:00.:00:00.

Three men die after being taken ill on a ship at an East Yorkshire dock.

:00:00.:00:17.

I can hardly remember accident at all. It is surprising and

:00:18.:00:26.

upsetting. It is not a regular occurrence. Police say it could be

:00:27.:00:30.

weeks before we know what core the deaths of these people.

:00:31.:00:33.

UKIP targets Westminster gains in Lincolnshire ` as

:00:34.:00:35.

a senior Conservative in the county says his own MP must do more.

:00:36.:00:45.

My message to mark is get Boston back.

:00:46.:00:49.

Another wind farm planned for East Yorkshire `

:00:50.:00:51.

campaigners say turbines ruin the landscape and damage tourism.

:00:52.:00:56.

And the Lincolnshire singer through to

:00:57.:00:58.

Some unsettled weather to come in the next 48 hours and a warning by

:00:59.:01:14.

heavy rain. I'm back later in the programme.

:01:15.:01:20.

Three men working on board a ship in Goole Docks have now died

:01:21.:01:25.

Humberside Police, who are working with marine accident

:01:26.:01:30.

investigators, say it could be several weeks before the actual

:01:31.:01:33.

Our reporter Kate Sweeting is live at the Docks for us this evening.

:01:34.:01:39.

We know the men were unloading a cargo of wood from this ship

:01:40.:01:54.

yesterday morning when they became ill. They were taken to hospital but

:01:55.:02:00.

all died. Two other members of the crew were unaffected. Police today

:02:01.:02:05.

confirmed the men were taken ill. They were not injured by falling

:02:06.:02:09.

cargo as was first speculated but they say it is too early to say what

:02:10.:02:14.

caused the become ill until the result of postmortem examinations,

:02:15.:02:18.

which will be carried out in the next few days.

:02:19.:02:20.

Searching for clues as to what killed three members

:02:21.:02:23.

of this ship's crew. The men were a 60`year`old

:02:24.:02:26.

from Germany and a 33 and 38`year`old from the Philippines.

:02:27.:02:29.

At the moment the cause of their death is unknown.

:02:30.:02:32.

All we know is they've been working on the ship.

:02:33.:02:35.

As a result of that they've taken ill and they

:02:36.:02:40.

have been taken to hospital. It is early days for us to be able

:02:41.:02:44.

to say what is the cause of death. For those who know the port well,

:02:45.:02:48.

what happened has come as a shock. I think a lot of people will be

:02:49.:02:51.

frightened and scared and want to know what has happened.

:02:52.:02:55.

People have worked in the docks in dangerous situations for years.

:02:56.:02:58.

I can hardly remember an accident at all over the years.

:02:59.:03:02.

It is really surprising and upsetting.

:03:03.:03:05.

It is sad news. I'm from Goole and all my family

:03:06.:03:09.

have worked on the docks all lives. It is not a regular occurrence

:03:10.:03:12.

and it is sad. In a statement, Associated British

:03:13.:03:15.

Ports, which runs this dock, said, we are continuing to work with

:03:16.:03:18.

the relevant authorities. Our thoughts are with those affected

:03:19.:03:23.

by this tragic shipboard accident. The fact is accident levels have

:03:24.:03:27.

gone down, thankfully, but nevertheless,

:03:28.:03:29.

despite all that work, everyone acknowledges it is a dangerous

:03:30.:03:33.

environment and I suspect seafaring will always have a significant

:03:34.:03:36.

element of danger and risk. The police and marine accident

:03:37.:03:39.

investigation branch are now trying to establish what happened,

:03:40.:03:43.

but we are told it could be weeks before we have any answers.

:03:44.:03:51.

How common are accidents like this? They are rare but not unheard of and

:03:52.:04:00.

figures from the health and safety executive showed 15 people in

:04:01.:04:03.

Yorkshire and seven in the East Midlands were killed in industrial

:04:04.:04:08.

accidents in the last year. 1000 people are killed worldwide in

:04:09.:04:12.

maritime accidents every year, so it can be a risky business. The aim of

:04:13.:04:17.

this investigation now will to the establish what happens and also how

:04:18.:04:22.

to prevent it happening again. We'll let you know if we do hear anything.

:04:23.:04:27.

The man travelling 200 miles in his wheelchair to help improve

:04:28.:04:31.

A senior Lincolnshire MP has been told he must do more to help

:04:32.:04:37.

The leader of Boston Borough Council told BBC Look North that local

:04:38.:04:44.

Tory MP Mark Simmonds should "get Boston back as his priority".

:04:45.:04:50.

The warning follows UKIP's success in the European elections.

:04:51.:04:54.

The UKIP leader Nigel Farage has earmarked Boston Skegness as one

:04:55.:04:57.

of the seats the party could win in next year's general election.

:04:58.:05:01.

More from our Political Editor Tim Iredale.

:05:02.:05:12.

Died testing `` digests the news, this woman claims her party can

:05:13.:05:23.

repeat the success in the general election in just over 11 months

:05:24.:05:29.

time. We will target seats and target the seeds where we have a

:05:30.:05:32.

fantastic support at local level with local councillors in place.

:05:33.:05:38.

UKIP are targeting Grimsby currently held by Labour who is stepping down

:05:39.:05:43.

next year and Boston which is represented by Conservative

:05:44.:05:49.

ministers. In Boston alone, UKIP polled more than 50% of the boat in

:05:50.:05:54.

the European elections. They are the only parties who will do something

:05:55.:05:58.

about the problems we have got in Lincolnshire. That is with migration

:05:59.:06:04.

and the way the town has been spoiled. I am not racist but there

:06:05.:06:11.

are too many foreign people in this country, and in Boston. I hope they

:06:12.:06:18.

don't create tensions here. We have had it already and the situation is

:06:19.:06:26.

a little bit under control. As a foreign minister his work is

:06:27.:06:31.

overseas, but the leader of his Conservative council says he needs

:06:32.:06:34.

to reconnect with people closer to home. Mark has been doing an awful

:06:35.:06:43.

lot of work in Boston but he has not been the best communicate in that

:06:44.:06:50.

work. He spent a lot of time out of the country. My message to him is

:06:51.:06:54.

that you need to get Boston back first as your priority. Marco wasn't

:06:55.:07:02.

available for interview today. UKIP's ultimate aim is to see

:07:03.:07:05.

Britain leave the European Union but they know they can only achieve that

:07:06.:07:10.

if they have a power base at Westminster. One of Lincolnshire's

:07:11.:07:16.

MEPs was back on the campaign trail. He is UKIP's candidate in the

:07:17.:07:22.

election team place next week. That'll be a test of how the world

:07:23.:07:27.

of Westminster politics has changed following the events of the past few

:07:28.:07:28.

days. Well you saw her there in Tim's

:07:29.:07:36.

report ` and now Jane Collins, one of UKIP's newest MEPs

:07:37.:07:40.

for Yorkshire and the Humber, is It all started by you sitting at

:07:41.:07:48.

home on the survey shouting at the TV. Are you going to stay on the

:07:49.:07:55.

sober or get out? I am going to be the eyes and ears of people. And MEP

:07:56.:08:05.

on ?80,000 a year, when he don't think we should be in Europe. It is

:08:06.:08:12.

strange. It is an ironic situation. You are in a job you hope you lose

:08:13.:08:15.

because we want to come out of the EU. You are happy to take the

:08:16.:08:22.

?80,000 salary? We don't look at it at that way. I don't think the

:08:23.:08:27.

voters are. We are going to represent the people that will

:08:28.:08:32.

upload photos, who had a mistress of the European Union and Parliament

:08:33.:08:35.

and we will represent them and do our job. But there is like David

:08:36.:08:40.

Cameron who have called you races in the past, how insulting is that? ``

:08:41.:08:53.

racist. It is insulting. They live in a bubble. What message does

:08:54.:08:59.

leaving the EU centre companies like Siemens? They would run a mile from

:09:00.:09:07.

Hull. I don't agree with that comment. They said they were

:09:08.:09:10.

concerned with our membership but let me make it clear. Business and

:09:11.:09:15.

trade is not based on the back part of a political union. It is based on

:09:16.:09:21.

supply and demand. Is Siemens wasn't yet those jobs would go and we would

:09:22.:09:26.

lose it. You are saying we should be out of Europe. I am delighted for

:09:27.:09:33.

the people in Hull he'll get the jobs with Siemens, but you have to

:09:34.:09:38.

as yourself why they are laid out 15,000 of their own workers in

:09:39.:09:47.

Jimmy, gone back to Jimmy `` Germany, to use offshore wind farms.

:09:48.:09:54.

You work of Godfrey Bloom. Has he given you any advice on how not to

:09:55.:10:00.

put your foot in it? I don't think he need to give me any advice. We

:10:01.:10:07.

may find out. I don't think we can advise each other on that. I have my

:10:08.:10:12.

own special way of doing things and he had his. Very good to seeing you.

:10:13.:10:26.

What would you like to see. Would you like to see UKIP representing

:10:27.:10:34.

you? You can e`mail us. You can text us as well.

:10:35.:10:51.

Thousands more army reservists are needed in the next four years to

:10:52.:10:54.

make up for redundancies among full`time soldiers.

:10:55.:10:57.

A recruitment drive is falling short of its ambitious targets.

:10:58.:11:01.

Here the 4th Battalion the Yorkshire Regiment is a third`empty with room

:11:02.:11:05.

I don't think it is overly optimistic.

:11:06.:11:11.

I think we need to make sure we give ourselves enough time to achieve

:11:12.:11:15.

There's always a desire to do it right now

:11:16.:11:18.

and we have to keep concentrating on the fact we have given ourselves a

:11:19.:11:22.

target of six years to achieve that and we have to get on with it, get

:11:23.:11:26.

Six firefighters from Lincolnshire have rescued more than 100 people

:11:27.:11:31.

from floods in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

:11:32.:11:34.

They were part of a British flood response team helping

:11:35.:11:37.

in the aftermath of last week?s unprecedented heavy rain ` and also

:11:38.:11:41.

Anti`windfarm campaigners in East Yorkshire say plans to build

:11:42.:11:49.

12 turbines the height of the Humber Bridge will

:11:50.:11:55.

industrialise the Yorkshire Wolds and damage tourism in the area.

:11:56.:11:58.

This latest proposal is for a new wind farm near Driffield on land

:11:59.:12:01.

In the East Riding, 16 wind farms have already been

:12:02.:12:07.

approved or built, and five others are still to be decided on.

:12:08.:12:11.

To some wind turbines offer cheaper, cleaner energy.

:12:12.:12:18.

To others an eyesore invading the countryside.

:12:19.:12:22.

In Yorkshire, campaigners say they are already changing the skyline.

:12:23.:12:28.

You will be able to see this as far north as Scarborough.

:12:29.:12:32.

This farmland has become the latest battle ground.

:12:33.:12:35.

The proposed site for a new wind farm.

:12:36.:12:38.

It will decimate the landscape and ruin the entire area.

:12:39.:12:42.

Tourism is a big thing and we need to generate more

:12:43.:12:45.

Would you be happy if this was somewhere else

:12:46.:13:06.

We've got plenty of wind farms and it is time to say no.

:13:07.:13:12.

The plan would see 12 turbines stretch along the brow of this hill,

:13:13.:13:15.

That is more than twice the height of Beverley Minster,

:13:16.:13:19.

but they would produce enough energy to power nearly 13,000 homes.

:13:20.:13:22.

We do need to generate more electricity from renewable sources

:13:23.:13:25.

and so it is a difficult exercise to try balance that but we believe

:13:26.:13:29.

Highwood is one of those sites which we think can meet those targets.

:13:30.:13:32.

By 2020 the government must generate 15%

:13:33.:13:34.

By then it is predicted wind power will provide

:13:35.:13:38.

But ministers say from 2015 they will cut support

:13:39.:13:42.

for onshore wind because wind power targets will already have been met.

:13:43.:13:45.

The turbines at Highwood would be similar

:13:46.:13:47.

Opposition in the village is growing.

:13:48.:13:52.

This wind farm is effectively an industrialisation.

:13:53.:13:56.

We are going to get these monsters built on our doorstep.

:13:57.:13:59.

Just last week plans for turbines near Burton Agnes Hall

:14:00.:14:05.

were thrown out by the Secretary of State after a lengthy enquiry.

:14:06.:14:09.

But supporters of wind power say it offers greater value for money.

:14:10.:14:23.

It's easier to install at the top in this region.

:14:24.:14:27.

We have wide open space for onshore wind power.

:14:28.:14:29.

It may be a prime spot for the energy companies but tonight

:14:30.:14:33.

villages here are holding an action meeting, determined, they say,

If you have a picture send it in. Paul was away the other day. The

course is being held in Spain, which makes me suspect. He goes on a lot

:15:34.:15:49.

of these courses. It may or may not be reciprocated. In the rain to come

:15:50.:15:54.

in next 24 hours. Some very heavy rain so we have a warning from the

:15:55.:16:00.

Met office stop some spot having a significant amounts of rain. It is

:16:01.:16:04.

all down to this front which will stick around the ages. It will

:16:05.:16:08.

fizzle through Thursday, so a lot of rain to come. You can see all the

:16:09.:16:14.

cloud. It has brought rain. It is now starting to clear from far

:16:15.:16:18.

eastern parts and spreading westwards, so a dry spell for a time

:16:19.:16:22.

but further spells of rain setting in on the night. Tomorrow morning

:16:23.:16:27.

will be north, so a wet and miserable day to

:16:28.:17:01.

come and temperatures really suppress as a result. We should be

:17:02.:17:06.

at around 70 degrees so it will feel cruel but the breeze from the North

:17:07.:17:10.

east `` 17 degrees so it will feel improvement on Friday, not

:17:11.:17:37.

completely dry but drier. Thank you very much. It is one thing being

:17:38.:17:41.

told to be nice but being threatened on there. My grandmother will be

has taken like an outdoors were granted as reserve manager. After

:18:25.:18:26.

being diagnosed with motoneuron disease last year, leaving him

:18:27.:18:32.

needing a wheelchair, he has become familiar with access problems in the

:18:33.:18:37.

countryside. Using get along the path but not pass gates, kissing

:18:38.:18:45.

gate as well. It is depriving a lot of people, elderly people, people

:18:46.:18:49.

with disabilities and prams, access to the countryside. Here set out to

:18:50.:18:55.

raise awareness, covering more than two miles in a coast`to`coast

:18:56.:19:00.

challenge. All the money I raised will help the changes. I can't

:19:01.:19:05.

change the countryside like can change the size I work for. Those

:19:06.:19:12.

sites include here which already prides itself on taking wheelchairs

:19:13.:19:15.

into account. This is one of our points. It is safe and secure and it

:19:16.:19:23.

is completely accessible. Those Les Mobile appreciate the efforts but

:19:24.:19:26.

say there is still much that can be done. `` less mobile. They can be a

:19:27.:19:40.

crusher eyeliner and make it difficult to see. Attention to that

:19:41.:19:45.

is welcome. It underpins everything we tried to do. Not only be trying

:19:46.:19:50.

to protect these birds, we want people to enjoy them and experience

:19:51.:19:55.

them, so making it accessible is one of our ultimate goals with around

:19:56.:20:02.

140,000 miles of footpaths and right away nationwide, the country land

:20:03.:20:06.

and business association says it is a difficult task but landowners are

:20:07.:20:11.

taking an increasing responsibility. We would encourage people to

:20:12.:20:13.

consider how they can make access more easy, to all the various things

:20:14.:20:21.

which disabled people can enjoy in the countryside. Roy's challenge for

:20:22.:20:25.

help with that. He has raised ?13,000 already. It makes you think.

and coach Johnny Whiteley says he's very concerned

:20:46.:20:47.

about the club's away form. Hull have failed win on

:20:48.:20:49.

the road this season and are not due Johnny still gave

:20:50.:20:53.

his backing to coach Lee Radford. Our sports reporter Simon

:20:54.:20:57.

Clark has been to meet him. He's one of Hull and rugby

:20:58.:21:01.

league's most decorated stars. Even at 83,

:21:02.:21:04.

Johnny Whiteley retains his youthful enthusiasm for the game he loves

:21:05.:21:06.

and club who defined his career. He was at Headingley on Friday when

:21:07.:21:11.

Hull lost their latest game on road, You hope something happens and that

:21:12.:21:30.

somebody lights of the game. Very few times this season have we really

:21:31.:21:34.

got our bottoms off the seats and stood up.

:21:35.:21:36.

Hull have won just five games all season and if they're not quite

:21:37.:21:40.

in the relegation scrap with London and Bradford

:21:41.:21:42.

The issues are not being fixed in a week. They will take a while but we

:21:43.:21:54.

are doing it. That is right from the bottom.

commentaor and former player Craig Murdock sees grounds for optimism.

:22:01.:22:08.

Lee has been left with a lot card he doesn't want and it will take him

:22:09.:22:14.

time to shovel them out. He can't just buy a new side. It is a work in

:22:15.:22:20.

progress. It will take a couple of years to sort out but I am certain

:22:21.:22:35.

he is right for the job. It is important to find your halfbacks and

:22:36.:22:41.

keep them for a run of games. They have my sympathies because it is a

:22:42.:22:47.

hard job. Especially when the crowd are helping you along.

:22:48.:22:50.

Due to this work at the KC, Hull who've not won away all season

:22:51.:22:54.

will not return here until July ` making Saturday's game at London

The Lincolnshire based Red Arrows have released footage taken

:22:58.:23:10.

inside the cockpit of one of its aircrafts during

That's what the mum of a singer from Lincolnshire says

:23:36.:23:40.

after her son reached the final of Britain's Got Talent.

:23:41.:23:43.

24`year`old Thomas Leak, from Donington`on`Bain near Louth,

:23:44.:23:45.

is part of the musical theatre group Collabro.

:23:46.:23:49.

Last night they won the first semi final of the ITV talent show `

:23:50.:23:53.

to keep alive their hopes of performing in front of the Queen.

:23:54.:23:56.

They certainly have the luck of a boy band but it was their sound

:23:57.:24:04.

which surprised the judging panel on one of the world's talent shows and

:24:05.:24:11.

last night the boy band, including Thomas Leak, made it to the live

:24:12.:24:15.

finals after the public voted them the best of the night. I think we

:24:16.:24:23.

could be looking at the winners. We are proud. The boys are quite young

:24:24.:24:30.

this is all they wanted to do. They love musical theatre. Thomas is in

:24:31.:24:34.
