Now on BBC One it's time for the news where you are.

:00:00.:00:08.

The lowest paid workers at Hull City Council are still not

:00:09.:00:10.

being paid the living wage more than a year after the authority said it

:00:11.:00:14.

Senior councillors say unions didn't want the issue included in pay

:00:15.:00:20.

negotiations, but union officials say it should be introduced.

:00:21.:00:23.

The GMB union protesting in Hull today, part

:00:24.:00:34.

of a campaign to encourage retailer Next to pay workers a living wage.

:00:35.:00:44.

They warned Hull City Council could be next.

:00:45.:00:46.

The GMB is nationally campaigning against Next,

:00:47.:00:48.

and local authorities and other multinational companies who are

:00:49.:00:51.

Some of them are avoiding paying tax and not paying their workface

:00:52.:00:59.

Employers are obliged by law to pay the minimum wage,

:01:00.:01:01.

A living wage, which is based on the basic cost

:01:02.:01:07.

117 local councils have agreed to pay the living wage to

:01:08.:01:26.

their employees and just over one year ago, Hull City Council said it

:01:27.:01:30.

The commitment from ourselves as the Labour administration is to uplift

:01:31.:01:34.

the lowest paid staff in Hull, which is the right thing to do and

:01:35.:01:38.

14 months on, and with the cost of living

:01:39.:01:42.

continuing to rise, the authority still hasn't brought in the policy.

:01:43.:01:45.

The union has asked us to take that particular part of the terms and

:01:46.:01:49.

conditions proposal off the table and it is not as daft as it sounds

:01:50.:01:52.

because what they are saying is that most people would have benefited

:01:53.:01:58.

from that increase that we are proposing.

:01:59.:02:00.

to lose working family tax credits with a partial implementation

:02:01.:02:04.

so they have asked us to take it off the table and bring it back

:02:05.:02:08.

when we are in a position to implement it in full.

:02:09.:02:11.

The GMB maintain the living wage is needed but accept

:02:12.:02:14.

That may be an unfortunate situation but that

:02:15.:02:17.

When you get to a threshold, there are always winners and losers and

:02:18.:02:22.

that may well be the case but for the vast majority of people, they

:02:23.:02:26.

Both the unions and the council agree that the

:02:27.:02:30.

But many of those who work in the lowest paid jobs with

:02:31.:02:35.

the authority will be wondering just how long it will take.

:02:36.:02:38.

Campaigners fighting to stop 30 Lincolnshire libraries from being

:02:39.:02:41.

run by volunteers rather than the council have set up a fighting fund.

:02:42.:02:44.

Save Our Lincolnshire Libraries Group is going to court in July to

:02:45.:02:47.

They've received a donation of ?1,000.

:02:48.:02:50.

Lincolnshire County Council says the changes will save ?2 million

:02:51.:02:53.

In Rugby League, Hull FC ended a run of four straight

:02:54.:02:57.

defeats as they won away at the London Broncos this afternoon.

:02:58.:03:00.

Callum Lancaster and Joe Westerman scored two tries each

:03:01.:03:03.

It was Hull's first away win for nine months.

:03:04.:03:07.

Hull Kingston Rovers can move into the top eight in Super League

:03:08.:03:10.

The Robins are unbeaten in their last three matches and scored nine

:03:11.:03:15.

tries during last week's win over the London Broncos, but they're

:03:16.:03:18.

aware how difficult tomorrow's trip to Castleford will be.

:03:19.:03:23.

They are a little Jack in the box, to be honest.

:03:24.:03:26.

Fourth at the minute, playing outstanding rugby because they are

:03:27.:03:29.

playing smart, great completion rates, don't miss many tackles.

:03:30.:03:31.

Don't give away many penalties and if they have got

:03:32.:03:34.

the ball all the time, they are going to score and play well.

:03:35.:03:38.

They have scored some surprise wins and no one can knock them

:03:39.:03:41.

because they deserve to be where they are and we know it is going to

:03:42.:03:45.

Lincolnshire rider Guy Martin has finished second in the TT Superbike

:03:46.:03:49.

race on the Isle of Man this afternoon.

:03:50.:03:51.

Michael Dunlop from Northern Ireland was the winner of the 226`mile race.

:03:52.:03:54.

It was Guy Martin's 14th podium finish and he says he has no

:03:55.:03:58.

complaints after being beaten by his younger rival.

:03:59.:04:03.

I will go to bed tonight, I could not have done any more.

:04:04.:04:10.

I was having moments, front end, sliding in the rear,

:04:11.:04:16.

it is not like, I should have done this, could have done that.

:04:17.:04:21.

If ifs and buts were pots and pans we would all be scrap

:04:22.:04:24.

As we head to this evening, a fair bit of cloud, the odd risk of

:04:25.:04:38.

shower but for most it will be dry and overnight will have variable

:04:39.:04:41.

Where we have clearer skies, temperatures will drop

:04:42.:04:45.

There could be a little bit of mist tomorrow morning.

:04:46.:04:50.

Tomorrow morning has a fine start, dry, bright, plenty of sunshine,

:04:51.:04:53.

the further towards the coast you are you will hold onto

:04:54.:04:56.

Hello. So far, so good. Most of us have had a dry start of the weekend.

:04:57.:05:19.

Some of us will be turning wetter tomorrow. For that change we look to

:05:20.:05:24.

the far north-west of the UK. Overnight into western Scotland,

:05:25.:05:26.

thicker cloud. Patchy hybrids of rain moving in. Some of that

:05:27.:05:31.

reaching Northern Ireland late in the night. Elsewhere, dry. Where you

:05:32.:05:36.

are clear, you will see some patchy mist and fog developing.

:05:37.:05:38.

Temperatures just over a single figures. There will be a different

:05:39.:05:41.

look to the weather across the western side of the UK. Western

:05:42.:05:45.

coast 's of England and Wales, so much sunshine today. More cloud

:05:46.:05:50.

around, maybe a hint of drizzle. In the evening we will start to see our

:05:51.:05:53.

bricks of rain. Central and eastern England will see a fair amount of

:05:54.:05:56.

morning sunshine. Southern and eastern Scotland, a dry start. For

:05:57.:06:00.

Northern Ireland and western Scotland, not just goal, but rampant

:06:01.:06:04.

places to begin the day. Easier when you have rain, the temperature held

:06:05.:06:10.

down. There will be low is in the rain, especially in Northern

:06:11.:06:12.

Ireland. In the afternoon we'll see
