city council in whole clashes with the unions over plans to cut opening

:00:16.:00:23.

hours in the museums and libraries. Once you start taking one hour here

:00:24.:00:28.

and one another the, it is the beginning of the end. If we want a

:00:29.:00:36.

successful high Street, we need to have businesses in the, shops and

:00:37.:00:39.

the other that cater for the community. And the criminal, the

:00:40.:00:47.

Grimsby sea captain who had an agonising choice during World War I.

:00:48.:00:53.

And the noisy peacocks that have divided and Yorkshire village. The

:00:54.:00:59.

very latest weather forecast coming up later.

:01:00.:01:07.

Good evening. In two and a half years Hull time, will be the City of

:01:08.:01:20.

Culture. But today, museum workers are being asked to take industrial

:01:21.:01:26.

action over cuts to services across the city. The council saving it to

:01:27.:01:35.

find ?150,000 of savings from the culture budget, but unions argue it

:01:36.:01:38.

is an area which needs to be protected ahead of the City of

:01:39.:01:45.

Culture year. Museums are all free in the city. There is a wide`ranging

:01:46.:01:49.

offer, bringing people into the city. At the moment, the council

:01:50.:01:58.

spends ?2.5 million on heritage. They say they have to cut back

:01:59.:02:05.

?150,000. That means reductions to some of the cultural services. The

:02:06.:02:10.

unions say it is worrying for a place which will soon call itself

:02:11.:02:16.

the City of Culture. Once you start taking a few hours here, half a day

:02:17.:02:20.

here, it is the beginning of the end. We want the ?150,000 to be

:02:21.:02:30.

found. We believe it can be found. The Heritage Museum is now only

:02:31.:02:35.

opening once a fortnight for four hours. The consultancy they have had

:02:36.:02:39.

to make difficult decisions to keep all museums free. It does not look

:02:40.:02:46.

good, because we are the City of Culture inner couple of years time

:02:47.:02:54.

and we are having to cut hours. The factors, the government are

:02:55.:02:59.

insisting that the bag. So, how does the city compare with others? It

:03:00.:03:04.

invests 44p per person per week in arts and culture in fourth place

:03:05.:03:13.

with regard to that all over England. People in the city said

:03:14.:03:21.

cutting opening times was bad news for visitors. If they are open for

:03:22.:03:25.

longer, you will attract more people. I would rather pay in a

:03:26.:03:32.

better be a better experience than not pay and how to worry about the

:03:33.:03:40.

times. This should be keeping them open longer. Union members will

:03:41.:03:43.

receive ballot papers early next month. The council say they have

:03:44.:03:50.

done all they can to minimise cuts and strike action will make no

:03:51.:03:57.

difference. I spoke to the trade union representative earlier. I'd

:03:58.:04:03.

ask them if reducing the opening times for the history museum was a

:04:04.:04:11.

sensible move. No, it is not. People are prepared to take industrial

:04:12.:04:14.

action to save their jobs and keep the museums open. A high take action

:04:15.:04:20.

over such a small issue? It may be a small issue to some people, but not

:04:21.:04:24.

to others. Are you fighting over jobs because you feel the museum

:04:25.:04:29.

should stay open, despite the fact very few people use it? We want to

:04:30.:04:36.

keep museums open. We will be the city of culture in three years time.

:04:37.:04:42.

We have one of the higher spends on museums and the country. The council

:04:43.:04:46.

has to makes savings and surely it is clear that every area takes the

:04:47.:04:52.

Ayrshire? Yes, we understand that. But we believe they could find the

:04:53.:04:58.

?150,000 needed to keep it open. The museum is not that we'll used. We

:04:59.:05:03.

will of people coming to the city and people will want to see the

:05:04.:05:11.

culture of the city. If you had a choice between keeping a purely used

:05:12.:05:16.

museum open and cuts to front line services, for which you choose? That

:05:17.:05:20.

is for the council to decide, not for me. But that is the choice,

:05:21.:05:28.

isn't it? That is the surgeon. We have got to make a lot of cuts. They

:05:29.:05:32.

have got cuts from central government and we affect understand

:05:33.:05:38.

that. Our members have taken cuts in the terms and conditions. But surely

:05:39.:05:44.

they need you to back them? You are not doing that, you are making an

:05:45.:05:48.

awkward. We are not making an awkward. We are there to support our

:05:49.:05:53.

members in their hour of need. The museum members of the museum members

:05:54.:05:56.

of said it will the museum opened and we will back them doing that.

:05:57.:06:04.

Would you stop free museums and make people to pay into them? That is not

:06:05.:06:11.

our decision. Our reunions right. Should the city be protecting its

:06:12.:06:15.

cultural heritage onto these cuts need to be made to balance the

:06:16.:06:20.

budget? Should museums be protected at whatever cost. Here are the

:06:21.:06:23.

contact details: I look forward to hearing from you.

:06:24.:06:49.

In a moment, a former television dragon who has raised money for

:06:50.:06:54.

sport relief and today he shared some of his business secrets.

:06:55.:06:59.

Shoppers in Scunthorpe same morning needs to be done to save stores from

:07:00.:07:07.

closing down in the town centre. The comments come as the more shops are

:07:08.:07:14.

closing. North Lincolnshire Council said it has responded by providing

:07:15.:07:16.

free parking and bringing new investment to the town. It is busy

:07:17.:07:29.

on the high street, but some shops are shouting and struggling in

:07:30.:07:35.

Scunthorpe. Marks Spencer left the tone and others are no closing. A

:07:36.:07:41.

local farmers also set to join the list. 50% of the outlets are either

:07:42.:07:52.

empty or about to be empty. The head of the chamber of trade thinks

:07:53.:07:59.

things will get worse. There are virtually 50% empty here. We have

:08:00.:08:05.

not got it right. The intimate and people shopping out of town, it is

:08:06.:08:10.

the final nail in the Coffin. Walking around the town centre,

:08:11.:08:13.

there are many empty premises ready to be let, but it is not all bad

:08:14.:08:18.

news. There are still shop owners who will take the risk on the high

:08:19.:08:25.

Street. Ella opened her shop three weeks ago and said, so far, business

:08:26.:08:31.

has been good. A lot of businesses have been complaining, but we have

:08:32.:08:38.

is future plan in place to be flexor flexible, to address many of our

:08:39.:08:46.

trains are coming in. High Street shops are always about addressing

:08:47.:08:49.

the needs of the community. You need to have businesses in the catering

:08:50.:08:53.

for the community because of the convenience. The council say they

:08:54.:08:58.

are helping the town centre, with free parking at certain times in new

:08:59.:09:03.

investment in the area. Old town centres are having difficulty. But

:09:04.:09:10.

we are doing a lot in Scunthorpe. We want a vibrant town centre. We

:09:11.:09:14.

wanted to offer something different and unique.

:09:15.:09:15.

want a vibrant town centre. We wanted to offer And the landlords

:09:16.:09:19.

have to encourage more businesses to stay open. It seems only the

:09:20.:09:26.

strongest will survive, with more challenges to come when this new

:09:27.:09:30.

out`of`town development opens its doors. The council is remaining

:09:31.:09:35.

optimistic about the future? Is that she had both people and the tone? As

:09:36.:09:42.

you say, the council say they are trying to get people into Scunthorpe

:09:43.:09:48.

spending. But this is the next big challenge. This huge new development

:09:49.:09:52.

on the Scott and Scots of the town is attracting big names into the

:09:53.:10:00.

town, but probably are coming to Scunthorpe, they are staying on the

:10:01.:10:03.

outskirts. One shop owner said they are not worried because the high

:10:04.:10:06.

Street offer something different for people without cars, for example.

:10:07.:10:12.

But they know they will have to get the shoppers who come here into the

:10:13.:10:17.

town centre and spending on the high street if it is to survive. Another

:10:18.:10:23.

issue you might wish to comment on. Just a reminder of the contact

:10:24.:10:31.

details. Some more news now. Police are continuing to question a

:10:32.:10:35.

25`year`old man in connection with an incident in North Somercotes. And

:10:36.:10:41.

manners been treated for a head injury. Officers were called in the

:10:42.:10:47.

early hours of Sunday morning. The official reopening of the Roman arch

:10:48.:10:54.

to place this afternoon. The meal of Lincoln cut the regiment, with

:10:55.:10:59.

renovation starting last year, with more than half the stones needing

:11:00.:11:04.

replaced. They say it is an important landmark to the city. The

:11:05.:11:08.

whole Kingston Rovers centre has been forced to retire at the age of

:11:09.:11:18.

26. He was forced to retire after suffering an eye injury after an

:11:19.:11:23.

incident outside the nightclub. On the field, his club came back to

:11:24.:11:28.

earth with a bump when they lost to Castleford. Hull Have finally won

:11:29.:11:40.

away from home. Hull Kingston Rovers had been moving along quite nicely

:11:41.:11:43.

this season until Castleford get in the way. This season 's surprise

:11:44.:11:47.

team were at it again. Time after time, the men in blue had

:11:48.:11:59.

no and so to the running and finishing of the Yorkshire side. A

:12:00.:12:04.

couple of tries were mere consolation in the 54`12 defeat. How

:12:05.:12:12.

Kingston Rovers were not help by a red card for the centre. A qualified

:12:13.:12:19.

civil engineer, he has been out with the show to see one of the great

:12:20.:12:23.

Yorkshire projects, the Humber Bridge. It is an amazing project. It

:12:24.:12:36.

is something I look forward to being a part of when I finish. I wanted to

:12:37.:12:46.

go and have a look at it. Means well, neighbours Hull said they

:12:47.:12:52.

would put right the waveform Andy Murray as good as their word.

:12:53.:12:56.

Without a win away from home all season, they were expected to win

:12:57.:12:59.

and in this game against London, they did so with plenty to spear.

:13:00.:13:09.

They racked up 50 points. Youngster Calum Lancaster get two of the

:13:10.:13:15.

tries. There is more of the action for the look out events off the

:13:16.:13:22.

field at 11:30pm on BBC One tonight. Thank you for your company tonight.

:13:23.:13:35.

Still ahead: The unusual garden visitors whose call is dividing a

:13:36.:13:45.

community. They eat certain flowers and make that awful noise.

:13:46.:13:51.

Yes, a high`pitched whine still to come, and also the peacocks! .

:13:52.:14:01.

Here are some photographs taken. Thank you very much for these. Good

:14:02.:14:10.

evening, young man. How did the core school? It was really good. I got a

:14:11.:14:22.

message saying, we were in Torquay last week and met Paul. We were

:14:23.:14:31.

doing the Jurassic Coast fossil hunting, which made me think of you,

:14:32.:14:33.

finally enough! Tomorrow's forecast this stunning

:14:34.:14:51.

rather bad after a bright start. We can see the shower is beginning to

:14:52.:14:54.

move in this evening into western areas. We had high temperatures of

:14:55.:15:00.

20 degrees, but the showers while meandering north east. Quite a

:15:01.:15:14.

showery night to come. Here are the sunrise times. The next time what

:15:15.:15:25.

time is about quarter past ten. I suspect it will be quite a cloudy

:15:26.:15:28.

and damp start across all parts, with patchy rain appealing. This guy

:15:29.:15:34.

gradually brightening up, with some sunshine breaking through in the

:15:35.:15:38.

afternoon. It could trigger some sharp showers. Nevertheless, there

:15:39.:15:43.

should be some dire conditions around. Very pleasant in the

:15:44.:15:51.

sunshine. High temperatures around 18 degrees Celsius. Tomorrow

:15:52.:16:01.

evening, it is looking fine, with some sunshine and scattered showers

:16:02.:16:07.

moving out that way. On Wednesday, there is a bit of uncertainty about

:16:08.:16:11.

the positioning of varying, but potentially it could be very way,

:16:12.:16:15.

with persistent and heavy local rain. But Thursday looks dry and

:16:16.:16:22.

warm, afraid it much the same, with the odd bit of patchy rain later in

:16:23.:16:32.

the day. Fossil hunting in Devon! The joy of it.

:16:33.:16:38.

The great`grandson of the trawler captain from Grimsby left a German

:16:39.:16:48.

to to die at sea has left apologise for his grandfather 's actions. He

:16:49.:16:55.

did not want to rescue the crewmen because he was worried that the meat

:16:56.:17:01.

over power his own crew. The story is now being told in a documentary.

:17:02.:17:05.

Visiting the grave of his great`grandfather, there is no

:17:06.:17:10.

headstone, just flowers planted a hundred years after his death. It is

:17:11.:17:14.

believed he wanted to remain anonymous. He had a story to tell

:17:15.:17:23.

which divided opinion. I think he was the man in the wrong place at

:17:24.:17:27.

the wrong time and effort to tap into someone else, for with the have

:17:28.:17:32.

done? William Martin was the skipper of a Grimsby troller and on the 2nd

:17:33.:17:38.

of February 1916, he was involved in one the most notorious incidents of

:17:39.:17:42.

the First World War. The stroller came across the remains of a cached

:17:43.:17:51.

German airship. He could either CVE in our leave them to dive. He

:17:52.:17:55.

refused to rescue them and the old Rome. Now, the family want to know

:17:56.:18:02.

why he did what he did. His great`grandson a journey to find out

:18:03.:18:05.

more about the man who is called a war criminal by some. You can

:18:06.:18:13.

imagine the slimming up in front of you receive. You know it has brought

:18:14.:18:19.

a lot of destruction on towns across Britain. You are confronted by the

:18:20.:18:25.

people operating this killing machine. Do you let them aboard your

:18:26.:18:31.

vessel? This is where the Zeppelin was based, end it will jump. He has

:18:32.:18:36.

come to find out more about the men who lost their lives. The captain of

:18:37.:18:42.

the Zeppelin gave his word of honour, as an officer, that he would

:18:43.:18:51.

not do anything to have tricked the man. That should be enough, but of

:18:52.:19:00.

course we cannot prove that now. The historian made me realise that there

:19:01.:19:05.

are one or two things that are quite upsetting. Whatever his

:19:06.:19:11.

great`grandson 's father 's reasons, that still feels an apology should

:19:12.:19:16.

be made. If I could make amends, I would. All I can do is offer my

:19:17.:19:23.

sincere apologies to the family. William died a year later, said to

:19:24.:19:30.

be a broken man. He made an agonising decision at the time of

:19:31.:19:34.

war. His family hope he can now finally be at peace. There is more

:19:35.:19:38.

in the story later on at 7:30 p.m.. And you rode on a housing

:19:39.:19:55.

development in Lincolnshire has been named after a former worker at the

:19:56.:20:00.

site. It commemorates Steve, who passed away in 2009 after battling

:20:01.:20:08.

skin cancer. His family visited the site for the ceremony. It is a

:20:09.:20:13.

massive fauna run a real privilege. We are extremely grateful for the

:20:14.:20:21.

brilliant gesture they have shown to our family. Steve was a former

:20:22.:20:25.

employee and worked here for four years. He was a conscientious

:20:26.:20:30.

hard`working member of the team and what we have decided to do, very

:20:31.:20:34.

uniquely, is mainly a road after him, to keep the his memory going.

:20:35.:20:41.

One of Britain's most successful businessmen has been on a sharing

:20:42.:20:46.

his knowledge with local companies. He started the 10th annual conger

:20:47.:20:54.

week. Theo Is best known for his judging on dried Spain.

:20:55.:21:03.

Good to meet you. What is your name? Good to meet you. How old are you,

:21:04.:21:17.

Amelia? Eight. I am a lot older than you. You saw poverty first`hand

:21:18.:21:26.

earlier this year and that must have been quite an eye opener. Do you

:21:27.:21:31.

agree with experts who say we are out of recession? We have been out

:21:32.:21:37.

of recession for years, but the figures take a foil to catch up.

:21:38.:21:44.

Businesses have grown and we have Sean profits coming through. The

:21:45.:21:48.

great thing about this particular recession is that we managed to keep

:21:49.:21:51.

unemployment down and interest rates down. What we have not been able to

:21:52.:21:57.

do is reduce the and that still hangs over is.

:21:58.:22:23.

own shops, you could not need to hire people to open them. That would

:22:24.:22:30.

be a good idea. But I time off to concentrate on my businesses. But I

:22:31.:22:36.

am doing a monthly slot on television. How about going on

:22:37.:22:42.

strictly come dancing? I do not think

:22:43.:24:18.

sleep, because they are very noisy. They eat certain flowers and make

:24:19.:24:23.

that awful noise. Who could complain about these beautiful creatures is

:24:24.:24:32.

ridiculous. I want long gone, but I do not want any more than we have

:24:33.:24:38.

got. They are dividing the community. A human show registers at

:24:39.:24:45.

70 decibels, all these sounds and clock sounds 115 decibels, rate at

:24:46.:24:52.

the threshold of what anyone can put up with. So what is the solution?

:24:53.:25:00.

The birds are not protected, so could be culled, but that is not an

:25:01.:25:03.

option the parish council want to take. Especially since the peacocks

:25:04.:25:09.

have the supporters. Yes, they make a noise and the mess, but they are

:25:10.:25:15.

beautiful. If someone can come up with a sensible solution, the parish

:25:16.:25:20.

council would be very interested in hearing from them. One stately home

:25:21.:25:28.

that is nearest is up to its size in peacocks. Most daily homes also have

:25:29.:25:35.

gardens only one kept in good condition and the peacocks

:25:36.:25:39.

unfortunately do have a tendency to trash the gardens. Unfortunately,

:25:40.:25:44.

the birds can also live until they are about 40, so it would be a

:25:45.:25:52.

long`term problem. It is now five minutes to seven. Here are the main

:25:53.:25:58.

headlines. Reports of alleged abuse by Jimmy Savile no total 500. Whole

:25:59.:26:06.

city council clashes with the museums over plans to cut opening

:26:07.:26:12.

hours. Tomorrow, brightening up with sunny spells, with high temperatures

:26:13.:26:21.

in the afternoon of 18 Celsius. No, a big response with regard to the

:26:22.:26:28.

museums. Andrew says, if the council looked after the finances better,

:26:29.:26:31.

they would not have to make these cuts. The museums are great. Another

:26:32.:26:41.

says, either charge for entry and the museums over to private

:26:42.:26:46.

enterprise. Another says, if people come to the city, we want them to

:26:47.:26:51.

spend money. In Holland, Amsterdam has a ticket which you buy for

:26:52.:26:59.

museums. It gives you an incentive to buy and also to see all of the

:27:00.:27:04.

museums. Thank you very much for these and thank you for watching. I

:27:05.:27:08.

will be back tonight just after the ten o'clock national news. Goodbye

:27:09.:27:11.

for now.
