The man who wants to turn the world upside
passionate about them. Sadly, she passed away last year. I can't
believe somebody has done this to me. Just team believes it was a
targeted break`in. I live in a very isolated area. I am surrounded by
fields. We are very difficult to find. I am here almost all the time.
At this animal re`homing centre, they are not surprised by this. They
have to take security seriously because stealing dogs is a lucrative
business. Some animals reach up to ?500, but his crossbreeds. Even a
Jack Russell can be bred with anything to make a new breed that
will sell. According to the latest figures from an organisation that
keeps a database of stolen dogs, in 2012, just over 6000 dogs were
reported missing. In 2013, that figure doubled. 3000 of those were
believed to have been stolen. Lincolnshire police say theft of
this nature are unusual. Whilst it is rare, it is a serious incident.
We are left with a distraught owner going out of their mind with worry
for the dog. Police appealed for anybody who might have information
to contact them. Earlier I spoke to Jayne Hayes,
the founder of Dog Lost. I asked her why these
dog thefts happen. It's a way of making money,
and there is a demand Also, people leave them out
in their gardens, outside shops, And are they looking out for homes
and dogs and targeting them? They're getting more and more
forward in stealing your dogs. Half of this is
because they know the police aren't really taking it seriously, and it's
a good quick way of making money. You don't think
the police take it seriously? In all fairness,
owners are usually so distressed, A lot of the time,
it's hard for the police, even if they catch someone red`handed with
your dog to prove it was stolen. People will say,
it walked up to me. We keep being told how important
micro chipping is, but it appears It's for identification of your dog,
so if it gets stolen and escapes and is found and is
scanned, we know who it belongs to. That is a deterrent
because it's visual. Once these dogs are taken,
what do they do with them? They usually sell them on
in small ads on the Internet, If you see a dog going cheap,
get onto us, let us know. If you have got pedigree dogs,
and you are watching this tonight, valuable dogs,
your best advice to people? You have got to start thinking
about the security of your dogs. Don't leave them tied
up outside shops. It is an open invitation
for them to be stolen. What's your experience of this? Have
you ever had a dog that's been stolen? What do you think needs
to happen to reduce the In a moment: The robot built in
Lincoln which could keep people There are plans to demolish the high
rise flats in Grimsby. Philip Norton is in Grimsby at the moment. Could
the skyline change fire ever? These tower blocks are as much a part of
the skyline as the famous tower. Under these new proposals, they
could disappear within the next few years. Residents and staff have only
been told of these clowns in the last 24 hours. There is a state of
shock. 400 of Grimsby people, these are
more than just local landmarks `` for hundreds of Grimsby people. By
the end of the year, many could be moving out under plans to demolish
these flats. Where are they going to put as? Where are we going to go?
The oldest one is 95. My neighbour is 87. There is a lady upstairs on
crutches. The social landlord says it would be too costly to renovate
the tower blocks. It wants to relocate residents to other parts of
northern and North East Lincolnshire. Blocks of been there
for the best part 15 years. They are at a point when the need millions
investing in them. If we spend that money, we will be able to continue
to let them. In actual fact, the demand for those properties has
dropped quite dramatically. High`rise living was popular when
first introduced in the UK, seen as a futuristic way of life. In recent
years, it has fallen out of fashion. Many, like these in Hull,
have already been pulled down. Bricks and mortar. I look at each
one of these as a street. We have got six Street here, and it is a
community. I will be listening to the residents over the next few
years to see what they want. I think it is shocking and they should not
do it. Why should we move? Why should we be demolished? The left
are always breaking down. The housing company are keen to stress
no decisions have yet been made. Tennant says they are already
worried they have lost their rooms with a view.
As well as these blocks, a number of other buildings will also be
demolished under these plans, and will create a huge open space in the
town centre. The housing company says it Will liars with the council
to see what they could do with the space `` it will liaise with the
council. If the plans are approved, all this could be levelled by 2018.
If you are in one of those blocks, or another one, you might have a

one of Hull's oldest residents. Lily Harland was 107 when
she passed away last week. Sarah Walton has been to meet her
family. Family and friends gathered together
to say goodbye to Lily Harland. Born in Hull over a century ago,
she became one Up to her being about 98,
she wouldn't tell nobody her age. She didn't even
like you to mention it! When she got to 100, nearly 100,
she wasn't bothered. Born in 1907,
she was five when the Titanic sank. She remembered her father
and brothers going off to fight She lived through the reigns
of four monarchs, and was already in her late forties
when the Queen came to the thrown. And that Queen sent her not one
but four birthday telegrams, marking her 100th birthday, 105th
and every birthday since then. She never had children,
but leaves a big family. It's really nice because I hadn't
seen someone so old before, and I was just really grateful to
see someone so old like that. Family say her long life was
down to never smoking or drinking, and say today's ceremony was
a chance to remember and celebrate An important milestone has been
reached in the ?20`million restoration of Lincoln Castle. The
roof of the vault that will hold the city's original copy
of Magna Carta has been completed, and a topping out
ceremony was held earlier today. Next year is the 800th anniversary
of Magna Carta, the document which for the first time set out
some of the basic rights we still enjoy today. Jake Zuckerman
reports. Throughout its 1,000`year history,
Lincoln Castle has undergone n many Today is the latest ` a major
landmark in the ongoing building work ` with the topping out ceremony
for the new Magna Carta Centre. It's where Lincoln's precious
original copy of Magna Carta, one of only four in existence,
will be stored in a new climate`controlled security
vault where visitors can view it. It is state of the art. It has been
designed to fit into an area without intruding in the building. It might
not look like much now, but by next summer, this damp basement will be a
state`of`the`art cinema, where visitors will get full
interpretation of the history of the castle, and the Magna Carta. It is
about improving tourism for visitors on what it has been. It is a great
story. We want to be able to tell it.
Issued by King John in 1215, Magna Carta is a legal document
that played a key role in bristish, and even world history.
The people told the king his power was not limitless, that he had to
govern in accordance with the law. That has been the case ever since.
The work includes a new walkway and a refurbishment of the Victorian
prison. During the work new discoveries have
been made on site, including a Saxon This weekend the public will be able
to see for the first time some of the conservation work being
carried out on the prison. It's hoped that
the refurbishment will attract thousands of extra visitors to
the city, boosting the local economy The Lincolnshire inventor who says
his latest creation has turned Keep your pictures coming in. Chris
Robinson sent this one. Thank you for that. Another gloomy day. We can
get the forecast with Keely. I hope you have been missed into the
forecast. An e`mail, I saw Peter walking down Beverly Road in
appalling rain with no coat on, does he just look at Keely and pay no
attention? I think the answer is yes.
I got shouted out as well through the car window.
He told me last night that my sleeves were too short, so I paid
attention. The good news is, it will improve
tomorrow. After a dismal few days, it will be brighter and drier
tomorrow. It is all down to a bridge of high pressure, which will
dominate the weather, probably only Friday and Saturday before it is
more unsettled again. A lot of cloud about today. It is still producing
some pockets of light rain and drizzle, but the theme is things do
become drier. A largely dry nights to come but it will remain cloudy.
It will not be particularly cold. Temperatures staying mostly in
double figures. Ten is 50 Fahrenheit. I think the coast will
do best tomorrow. I largely dry day. A lot of cloud about. There
will be brighter spells. Hopefully some sunny spells, particularly
along the coastal strip. The good news is, it will feel milder. It has
been quite chilly over the last few days. Hopefully, it will be up to 15

We were swamped with responses from you on the issue of all women
shortlists. This followed last night's news that Austin Mitchell's
replacement as Labour Candidate in Grimsby will be a woman. There
has been criticism locally, but it's been defended by supporters.

I recognise that some individual men may suffer as a result of this,
the same way many, many individual women suffered before that.
What I'd like to see is a situation where you twin constituencies,
That would bring women's representation up to 50%,
and that's much more than what we're currently doing.
Why did Labour introduce the short list? Well, the house of parliament
said `` the house of parliament was male dominated for many years. Some
people would say it still is. Labour thought of they could guarantee some
of their MPs were winning, it would lead to more women in Parliament.
That is what happened in 1997, the Blair babes. You can see them there,
record number of women MPs. It included the likes of people in
Lincolnshire, our region. The Conservatives and against all women

merit, whether you are a man or a woman, it should be the best person.

Scientists at the University of Lincoln say a robot they're
developing could act as a companion for people in the future.
MARC's been built using a 3D printer and cost ?1,000 to print.
He's being used to help scientists understand how relationships might
be developed between humans and robots in the future.
We have had a lot of reaction, people saying it looks like
terminator. Other people don't want to go near it. People can print one
of these themselves. The printer cost around ?400. Reprinted in cost
less than ?1000. You can have a fully autonomous companion.
