passionate about them. Sadly, she passed away last year. I can't

:00:49.:02:12.

believe somebody has done this to me. Just team believes it was a

:02:13.:02:22.

targeted break`in. I live in a very isolated area. I am surrounded by

:02:23.:02:26.

fields. We are very difficult to find. I am here almost all the time.

:02:27.:02:35.

At this animal re`homing centre, they are not surprised by this. They

:02:36.:02:42.

have to take security seriously because stealing dogs is a lucrative

:02:43.:02:54.

business. Some animals reach up to ?500, but his crossbreeds. Even a

:02:55.:03:03.

Jack Russell can be bred with anything to make a new breed that

:03:04.:03:08.

will sell. According to the latest figures from an organisation that

:03:09.:03:13.

keeps a database of stolen dogs, in 2012, just over 6000 dogs were

:03:14.:03:17.

reported missing. In 2013, that figure doubled. 3000 of those were

:03:18.:03:25.

believed to have been stolen. Lincolnshire police say theft of

:03:26.:03:30.

this nature are unusual. Whilst it is rare, it is a serious incident.

:03:31.:03:35.

We are left with a distraught owner going out of their mind with worry

:03:36.:03:41.

for the dog. Police appealed for anybody who might have information

:03:42.:03:42.

to contact them. Earlier I spoke to Jayne Hayes,

:03:43.:03:45.

the founder of Dog Lost. I asked her why these

:03:46.:03:49.

dog thefts happen. It's a way of making money,

:03:50.:03:55.

and there is a demand Also, people leave them out

:03:56.:03:58.

in their gardens, outside shops, And are they looking out for homes

:03:59.:04:08.

and dogs and targeting them? They're getting more and more

:04:09.:04:13.

forward in stealing your dogs. Half of this is

:04:14.:04:18.

because they know the police aren't really taking it seriously, and it's

:04:19.:04:20.

a good quick way of making money. You don't think

:04:21.:04:24.

the police take it seriously? In all fairness,

:04:25.:04:26.

owners are usually so distressed, A lot of the time,

:04:27.:04:31.

it's hard for the police, even if they catch someone red`handed with

:04:32.:04:37.

your dog to prove it was stolen. People will say,

:04:38.:04:45.

it walked up to me. We keep being told how important

:04:46.:04:48.

micro chipping is, but it appears It's for identification of your dog,

:04:49.:04:51.

so if it gets stolen and escapes and is found and is

:04:52.:04:59.

scanned, we know who it belongs to. That is a deterrent

:05:00.:05:03.

because it's visual. Once these dogs are taken,

:05:04.:05:11.

what do they do with them? They usually sell them on

:05:12.:05:17.

in small ads on the Internet, If you see a dog going cheap,

:05:18.:05:20.

get onto us, let us know. If you have got pedigree dogs,

:05:21.:05:27.

and you are watching this tonight, valuable dogs,

:05:28.:05:38.

your best advice to people? You have got to start thinking

:05:39.:05:42.

about the security of your dogs. Don't leave them tied

:05:43.:05:45.

up outside shops. It is an open invitation

:05:46.:05:48.

for them to be stolen. What's your experience of this? Have

:05:49.:05:51.

you ever had a dog that's been stolen? What do you think needs

:05:52.:06:00.

to happen to reduce the In a moment: The robot built in

:06:01.:06:04.

Lincoln which could keep people There are plans to demolish the high

:06:05.:06:49.

rise flats in Grimsby. Philip Norton is in Grimsby at the moment. Could

:06:50.:06:54.

the skyline change fire ever? These tower blocks are as much a part of

:06:55.:07:00.

the skyline as the famous tower. Under these new proposals, they

:07:01.:07:03.

could disappear within the next few years. Residents and staff have only

:07:04.:07:07.

been told of these clowns in the last 24 hours. There is a state of

:07:08.:07:12.

shock. 400 of Grimsby people, these are

:07:13.:07:21.

more than just local landmarks `` for hundreds of Grimsby people. By

:07:22.:07:26.

the end of the year, many could be moving out under plans to demolish

:07:27.:07:32.

these flats. Where are they going to put as? Where are we going to go?

:07:33.:07:36.

The oldest one is 95. My neighbour is 87. There is a lady upstairs on

:07:37.:07:49.

crutches. The social landlord says it would be too costly to renovate

:07:50.:07:53.

the tower blocks. It wants to relocate residents to other parts of

:07:54.:07:57.

northern and North East Lincolnshire. Blocks of been there

:07:58.:08:03.

for the best part 15 years. They are at a point when the need millions

:08:04.:08:14.

investing in them. If we spend that money, we will be able to continue

:08:15.:08:19.

to let them. In actual fact, the demand for those properties has

:08:20.:08:28.

dropped quite dramatically. High`rise living was popular when

:08:29.:08:32.

first introduced in the UK, seen as a futuristic way of life. In recent

:08:33.:08:36.

years, it has fallen out of fashion. Many, like these in Hull,

:08:37.:08:51.

have already been pulled down. Bricks and mortar. I look at each

:08:52.:08:55.

one of these as a street. We have got six Street here, and it is a

:08:56.:09:00.

community. I will be listening to the residents over the next few

:09:01.:09:05.

years to see what they want. I think it is shocking and they should not

:09:06.:09:10.

do it. Why should we move? Why should we be demolished? The left

:09:11.:09:17.

are always breaking down. The housing company are keen to stress

:09:18.:09:22.

no decisions have yet been made. Tennant says they are already

:09:23.:09:25.

worried they have lost their rooms with a view.

:09:26.:09:30.

As well as these blocks, a number of other buildings will also be

:09:31.:09:34.

demolished under these plans, and will create a huge open space in the

:09:35.:09:39.

town centre. The housing company says it Will liars with the council

:09:40.:09:44.

to see what they could do with the space `` it will liaise with the

:09:45.:09:50.

council. If the plans are approved, all this could be levelled by 2018.

:09:51.:09:58.

If you are in one of those blocks, or another one, you might have a

view. A road in an East Yorkshire village

:10:00.:10:15.

is currently closed while police investigate what is

thought to be an explosive device. West Green in Pocklington shown here

has been cordoned off by Humberside Police who advise people

to avoid the area until the device Police say they've finished

:10:25.:10:27.

their investigation into the deaths of three ship workers

in East Yorkshire on Monday. Officers say there were no

the future of Louth's cattle market. The land is owned by

:10:47.:10:56.

East Lindsey District Council and senior councillors have

recommended selling it. All bids to buy

one of Hull's oldest residents. Lily Harland was 107 when

:11:07.:11:10.

she passed away last week. Sarah Walton has been to meet her

:11:11.:11:13.

family. Family and friends gathered together

:11:14.:11:18.

to say goodbye to Lily Harland. Born in Hull over a century ago,

:11:19.:11:23.

she became one Up to her being about 98,

:11:24.:11:26.

she wouldn't tell nobody her age. She didn't even

:11:27.:11:34.

like you to mention it! When she got to 100, nearly 100,

:11:35.:11:37.

she wasn't bothered. Born in 1907,

:11:38.:11:40.

she was five when the Titanic sank. She remembered her father

:11:41.:11:47.

and brothers going off to fight She lived through the reigns

:11:48.:11:50.

of four monarchs, and was already in her late forties

:11:51.:11:56.

when the Queen came to the thrown. And that Queen sent her not one

:11:57.:12:00.

but four birthday telegrams, marking her 100th birthday, 105th

:12:01.:12:03.

and every birthday since then. She never had children,

:12:04.:12:06.

but leaves a big family. It's really nice because I hadn't

:12:07.:12:11.

seen someone so old before, and I was just really grateful to

:12:12.:12:15.

see someone so old like that. Family say her long life was

:12:16.:12:24.

down to never smoking or drinking, and say today's ceremony was

:12:25.:12:27.

a chance to remember and celebrate An important milestone has been

:12:28.:12:43.

reached in the ?20`million restoration of Lincoln Castle. The

:12:44.:12:46.

roof of the vault that will hold the city's original copy

:12:47.:12:49.

of Magna Carta has been completed, and a topping out

:12:50.:12:52.

ceremony was held earlier today. Next year is the 800th anniversary

:12:53.:12:55.

of Magna Carta, the document which for the first time set out

:12:56.:12:58.

some of the basic rights we still enjoy today. Jake Zuckerman

:12:59.:13:00.

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

:13:13.:13:18.

original copy of Magna Carta, one of only four in existence,

:13:19.:13:20.

will be stored in a new climate`controlled security

:13:21.:13:25.

vault where visitors can view it. It is state of the art. It has been

:13:26.:13:38.

designed to fit into an area without intruding in the building. It might

:13:39.:13:46.

not look like much now, but by next summer, this damp basement will be a

:13:47.:13:52.

state`of`the`art cinema, where visitors will get full

:13:53.:13:54.

interpretation of the history of the castle, and the Magna Carta. It is

:13:55.:14:01.

about improving tourism for visitors on what it has been. It is a great

:14:02.:14:10.

story. We want to be able to tell it.

:14:11.:14:14.

Issued by King John in 1215, Magna Carta is a legal document

:14:15.:14:17.

that played a key role in bristish, and even world history.

:14:18.:14:23.

The people told the king his power was not limitless, that he had to

:14:24.:14:30.

govern in accordance with the law. That has been the case ever since.

:14:31.:14:43.

The work includes a new walkway and a refurbishment of the Victorian

:14:44.:14:44.

prison. During the work new discoveries have

:14:45.:14:48.

been made on site, including a Saxon This weekend the public will be able

:14:49.:14:52.

to see for the first time some of the conservation work being

:14:53.:14:57.

carried out on the prison. It's hoped that

:14:58.:14:59.

the refurbishment will attract thousands of extra visitors to

:15:00.:15:01.

the city, boosting the local economy The Lincolnshire inventor who says

his latest creation has turned Keep your pictures coming in. Chris

:15:48.:15:55.

get the forecast with Keely. I hope you have been missed into the

:15:56.:16:01.

forecast. An e`mail, I saw Peter walking down Beverly Road in

:16:02.:16:05.

appalling rain with no coat on, does he just look at Keely and pay no

:16:06.:16:09.

attention? I think the answer is yes.

:16:10.:16:13.

I got shouted out as well through the car window.

:16:14.:16:18.

He told me last night that my sleeves were too short, so I paid

:16:19.:16:22.

attention. The good news is, it will improve

:16:23.:16:28.

tomorrow. After a dismal few days, it will be brighter and drier

:16:29.:16:33.

tomorrow. It is all down to a bridge of high pressure, which will

:16:34.:16:38.

dominate the weather, probably only Friday and Saturday before it is

:16:39.:16:43.

more unsettled again. A lot of cloud about today. It is still producing

:16:44.:16:46.

some pockets of light rain and drizzle, but the theme is things do

:16:47.:16:52.

become drier. A largely dry nights to come but it will remain cloudy.

:16:53.:16:58.

It will not be particularly cold. Temperatures staying mostly in

:16:59.:17:04.

double figures. Ten is 50 Fahrenheit. I think the coast will

:17:05.:17:21.

do best tomorrow. I largely dry day. A lot of cloud about. There

:17:22.:17:26.

will be brighter spells. Hopefully some sunny spells, particularly

:17:27.:17:32.

along the coastal strip. The good news is, it will feel milder. It has

:17:33.:17:37.

been quite chilly over the last few days. Hopefully, it will be up to 15

:17:38.:17:44.

or 16. 16 is 61 Fahrenheit. Further ahead into the weekend, Saturday

:17:45.:17:51.

variable, large amounts of cloud. There will be the odd bright spell,

:17:52.:17:56.

but these will spark of a fuel showers. Hopefully, we will get the

:17:57.:18:03.

odd sunny spell. The, not a bad day but there will be some rain by the

:18:04.:18:07.

end of the day. Next week, unsettled. Peter, you will need your

:18:08.:18:09.

code. Somebody says, clearly none of that

:18:10.:18:19.

is the highlight of the show. `` Keely is the highlight of the show.

:18:20.:18:34.

We were swamped with responses from you on the issue of all women

:18:35.:18:38.

shortlists. This followed last night's news that Austin Mitchell's

:18:39.:18:40.

replacement as Labour Candidate in Grimsby will be a woman. There

:18:41.:18:43.

has been criticism locally, but it's been defended by supporters.

:18:44.:18:46.

There has been criticism locally, but it's been defended

:18:47.:18:48.

The fact is, we've effectively had all`male

:18:49.:18:51.

I recognise that some individual men may suffer as a result of this,

:18:52.:18:57.

the same way many, many individual women suffered before that.

:18:58.:19:00.

What I'd like to see is a situation where you twin constituencies,

:19:01.:19:03.

That would bring women's representation up to 50%,

:19:04.:19:07.

and that's much more than what we're currently doing.

:19:08.:19:11.

Why did Labour introduce the short list? Well, the house of parliament

:19:12.:20:09.

said `` the house of parliament was male dominated for many years. Some

:20:10.:20:14.

people would say it still is. Labour thought of they could guarantee some

:20:15.:20:20.

of their MPs were winning, it would lead to more women in Parliament.

:20:21.:20:25.

That is what happened in 1997, the Blair babes. You can see them there,

:20:26.:20:29.

record number of women MPs. It included the likes of people in

:20:30.:20:42.

Lincolnshire, our region. The Conservatives and against all women

:20:43.:20:45.

short lists. They say their selection process is based purely on

:20:46.:20:49.

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

:20:50.:20:54.

Any Tories point of example of Margaret Thatcher, who famously

:20:55.:21:02.

handbags `` many Tories pointed to the example of Margaret Thatcher.

:21:03.:21:07.

Liberal Democrats have said they might look at it if they fail to get

:21:08.:21:12.

enough women MPs in the next election.

:21:13.:21:16.

Thank you. It did not go down too well with many people last night.

:21:17.:21:19.

Thank you for the e`mails and messages.

One of Scunthorpe United's promotion winning side has signed

Niall Canavan, here celebrating promotion, has agreed

He's hoping to make an impact next season which will be on League One.

Hull Kingston Rovers coach Craig Sandercock says it's too early

:21:46.:21:47.

to say when Sean Gleeson will be cleared to play again.

:21:48.:21:50.

Gleeson suffered a serious eye injury outside this

:21:51.:21:52.

He remains under treatment at a hospital in the Wigan area.

:21:53.:21:57.

Until we hear otherwise, we have to keep going the way we are.

:21:58.:22:02.

Is he still in treatment in the hospital over there?

:22:03.:22:04.

He's got a couple of significant appointments coming up and hopefully

:22:05.:22:09.

Most of the tree carvings in the Avenues area

:22:10.:22:17.

of Hull are to be removed because the wood is beginning to rot.They

:22:18.:22:21.

were created by an artist in the year 2000

:22:22.:22:23.

Now Hull City Council says woodworm has damaged the base

:22:24.:22:28.

of the sculptures and they need to be cut down for safety.

:22:29.:22:31.

One will remain and the local residents association

:22:32.:22:33.

hopes the others can be preserved and sold at auction.

:22:34.:22:36.

Scientists at the University of Lincoln say a robot they're

:22:37.:22:38.

developing could act as a companion for people in the future.

:22:39.:22:42.

MARC's been built using a 3D printer and cost ?1,000 to print.

:22:43.:22:46.

He's being used to help scientists understand how relationships might

:22:47.:22:48.

be developed between humans and robots in the future.

:22:49.:22:57.

We have had a lot of reaction, people saying it looks like

:22:58.:23:03.

terminator. Other people don't want to go near it. People can print one

:23:04.:23:12.

of these themselves. The printer cost around ?400. Reprinted in cost

:23:13.:23:18.

less than ?1000. You can have a fully autonomous companion.

:23:19.:23:23.

And if you'd like to see a full report about MARC

He's an inventor from Stamford, and now an internet sensation.

:23:34.:23:37.

Colin Furze currently holds the record for the world's fastest

:23:38.:23:40.

And now he's created shoes which allow him impersonate

:23:41.:23:43.

Crispin Rolfe has been taking a look at his handy work.

:23:44.:23:48.

No, I can't move metal with my mind, but I could stick to it.

:23:49.:23:53.

A plumber with world records to his name, including

:23:54.:23:58.

But now he's out to impersonate super`heroes...not

:23:59.:24:01.

with magic or mutancy, but with science.

:24:02.:24:03.

I've seen people try and recreate Wolverine's claws.

:24:04.:24:05.

So I thought I'd have a go at a couple of the characters.

:24:06.:24:09.

walking on the ceiling! So how has Colin defied gravity?

:24:10.:24:13.

I wanted to do Magneto cos he's one of my favourites.

:24:14.:24:16.

strong enough to hold 80 kilograms?

:24:17.:24:17.

I can't do that so I thought this idea of a magnetic shoes, so I could

:24:18.:24:22.

It's interesting, cos being hung from your feet is very strange.

:24:23.:24:26.

I can't do that so I thought this idea of a magnetic shoes, so I could

:24:27.:24:49.

It's interesting, cos being hung from your feet is very strange.

:24:50.:24:54.

Well, magnets, obviously, but in this case, how do you make one

:24:55.:25:08.

I've seen on the internet someone make

:25:09.:25:11.

I thought, that looks quite good, and from a little AA battery,

:25:12.:25:16.

I could lift 50 pounds, so I went to the scrap yard,

:25:17.:25:20.

picked some microwaves up, stripped them down, whacked

:25:21.:25:22.

a car battery on them and couldn't pull it off this bit of metal.

:25:23.:25:26.

So I just hung off it, and I'm like, there we go, there's the magnet's

:25:27.:25:30.

So, as with every super`hero story, there's a moral.

:25:31.:25:34.

Firstly, don't eat crisps upside down.

:25:35.:25:35.

But probably more importantly, don't let anyone near your microwave

:25:36.:25:39.

Let's get a recap of the national and regional headlines:

:25:40.:25:52.

Letters letters between Tony Blair and George W Bush in the run`up to

:25:53.:25:58.

the Iraq war will never be published in full. A warning for dog owners in

:25:59.:26:03.

Lincolnshire as for animals as stolen. Tomorrow's weather:

:26:04.:26:16.

a response on the subject of stolen dogs. Sue in Withernsea said, I had

:26:17.:26:23.

a dog stolen by somebody walking into my house a few years ago.

:26:24.:26:41.

since. It is heartbreaking. Sally says, alt. Should be microchip

:26:42.:26:44.

and is now intact with the owner's telephone number on it. Tim says to

:26:45.:26:49.

steal an animal is the same as taking a member of your family, the

:26:50.:26:52.
