That's all from the BBC News at Six. It's goodbye from me. On

:00:00.:00:23.

Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:24.:00:29.

Campaigners say they'll fight new plans to breed dogs for animal

:00:30.:00:34.

"Refer a friend" bonuses to help recruit nurses at a Lincolnshire

:00:35.:00:38.

The development that's splitting a town `

:00:39.:00:42.

mixed emotions as a supermarket for Louth moves a step closer.

:00:43.:00:44.

The student from Hull who became one of the most important secret

:00:45.:00:47.

A company that wants to breed hundreds of dogs for animal research

:00:48.:01:13.

in East Yorkshire is challenging a decision which means they can't

:01:14.:01:16.

broadcast secret messages to France came from man here at the University

:01:17.:01:35.

Councillors rejected the plans from B and K Universal,

:01:36.:01:38.

despite advice from officers that they should accept them.

:01:39.:01:40.

The company currently buys in puppies and rears them on site.

:01:41.:01:43.

Over 40,000 people signed a petition against their plans last year.

:01:44.:01:46.

Our Rural Affairs correspondent Paul Murphy reports.

:01:47.:01:49.

Once again the battle lines are being drawn. Many here are concerned

:01:50.:01:56.

about what they say is an industrial development in a peaceful, rural

:01:57.:02:03.

area. It is inappropriate, if you look at all of the times that the

:02:04.:02:06.

applications have been turned down, it is pretty much always about the

:02:07.:02:09.

appropriateness of an industrial place in a tiny hamlet like this.

:02:10.:02:17.

Six months ago East Riding Council rejected the expansion plans to

:02:18.:02:22.

breed animals on site. Under law it could only consider planning issues

:02:23.:02:25.

such as potential noise and not the ethics of animal testing. Many do

:02:26.:02:30.

have concerns about the use of dogs in medical research. I am surprised

:02:31.:02:37.

that they have appealed and I am glad they have appealed because it

:02:38.:02:44.

has put the company once again in this hot plate and they have shot

:02:45.:02:47.

themselves in the foot. `` in the spotlight. In essence, the planning

:02:48.:03:00.

application is for a facility which will allow the company to reach dogs

:03:01.:03:07.

one time. The company says that the one time. The company says that the

:03:08.:03:18.

animals that supplies are used in vital research at that the new

:03:19.:03:21.

facility will not increase local traffic or noise. They say that

:03:22.:03:25.

without it the future of the operation will be put in doubt. The

:03:26.:03:34.

third option would be to go to a more progressive local authority. A

:03:35.:03:38.

lot of work for local contractors. The planning issues in this appeal

:03:39.:03:46.

will now go before the planning expect it.

:03:47.:03:50.

I'm joined by Wendy Jarrett who's from the group

:03:51.:03:52.

Do you except that if we want to use animals for research then we need to

:03:53.:04:17.

use animals that we are less emotional about. There is a lot of

:04:18.:04:25.

work in `` being done to find alternatives to using animals. It is

:04:26.:04:31.

legal in the UK to do research on animals if that is not deal the

:04:32.:04:39.

option. Is enough being done to explore the alternatives? Millions

:04:40.:04:44.

of pounds are being invested every year. The number of dogs used in

:04:45.:04:50.

research has dropped by 40% since 2001, so there is a lot happening

:04:51.:04:56.

but we are still not there yet. We have not found every alternative for

:04:57.:05:02.

every use of every animal. It is an emotive issue. Do you understand why

:05:03.:05:07.

animal lovers do not want animals to suffer in pain. Absolutely. There

:05:08.:05:12.

are not kept in isolation, they are always group to when it is possible,

:05:13.:05:19.

they are not hurt, anaesthetics and painkillers are used whenever

:05:20.:05:24.

are already bred in the UK, is there are already bred in the UK, is there

:05:25.:05:27.

a demand for more? Does that mean that we will not look at turn it as

:05:28.:05:33.

if we're just able to bring more dogs on. At the moment the dogs that

:05:34.:05:40.

are used in the UK are used for a regulatory requirements, it is the

:05:41.:05:45.

law that any new medicine has to be tested on at least two species of

:05:46.:05:52.

animal, I wouldn't and a larger non`rodent animal, in the UK that is

:05:53.:05:57.

usually a dog. At the moment the UK does not breed enough dogs to be

:05:58.:06:02.

used for all that I needed. A quarter are still being imported

:06:03.:06:06.

from abroad and that involves long plane journeys from the USA or other

:06:07.:06:15.

places. I would like to throw this one open, let me know what you think

:06:16.:06:23.

about it. A health trust which covers parts

:06:24.:06:52.

of Lincolnshire is offering cash incentives to staff to attract more

:06:53.:06:55.

nurses. Hospital managers at Peterborough

:06:56.:06:57.

and Stamford NHS Trust say if employees can successfully

:06:58.:06:59.

recruit a nurse they'll get three There are currently more than 140

:07:00.:07:02.

vacancies to fill, but The Royal College of Nursing

:07:03.:07:07.

says it shows desperation. Leanne Brown is here.

:07:08.:07:14.

How is this going to work? The trust which runs the hospital is

:07:15.:07:27.

struggling to attract nurses, like many across the UK. In the past they

:07:28.:07:33.

have gone to Italy, Romania and Spain to try to find recruits. But

:07:34.:07:39.

the latest idea is to offer cash incentives to current staff to see

:07:40.:07:45.

if they can help. It will work like this. If you were a permanent member

:07:46.:07:50.

of staff and you introduce someone as a nurse you will get ?200 if they

:07:51.:07:58.

are taken on. If they stay for 12 months then you will get another

:07:59.:08:03.

?150 and the recruit will also get 100 pounds. But the Royal College of

:08:04.:08:09.

Nursing is not convinced and says that there are better ways of doing

:08:10.:08:14.

things. This looks like a gimmick to me. If we look at the real reasons

:08:15.:08:20.

that will attract staff nurses to a hospital people want to see that

:08:21.:08:23.

they will have good employment conditions, flexibility in their

:08:24.:08:29.

working, investment in their career development, opportunity for

:08:30.:08:31.

training. An organisation that listens to them, those are the key

:08:32.:08:35.

sorts of factors which both keep hold of the staff that you have got

:08:36.:08:47.

but will also attract people in. The hospital has defended the plan and

:08:48.:08:55.

said that it is a creative way of maintaining staffing levels. It may

:08:56.:09:01.

appear to be desperate but in the context of the situation as far as

:09:02.:09:04.

qualified nurses are concerned, every hospital has vacancies, we

:09:05.:09:09.

want the best standard. There was a mixed response to the news on the

:09:10.:09:14.

streets today. There is not enough money to do that sort of thing.

:09:15.:09:21.

Given that we're supposed to be so poor and sold short of funds

:09:22.:09:26.

publicly, where are we going? If they are struggling to find people

:09:27.:09:30.

then exposed gives them a bit of incentive that you have to make

:09:31.:10:16.

Humberside Police underwater search unit removed the body of a man

:10:17.:10:20.

from the water in Queens Gardens this afternoon.

an incident in North Somercotes in the early hours of Sunday morning.

He appeared before magistrates in Skegness this morning.

:10:41.:10:50.

Senior councillors have approved the sale and redevelopment of Louth

:10:51.:10:53.

Cattle Market. The land is owned by East Lindsey District Council which

:10:54.:10:56.

has received 15 bids for the site, all from supermarkets. Earlier I

:10:57.:11:00.

spoke to Leslie Harrison Wiseman, who is in favour of a supermarket,

:11:01.:11:03.

and Anne McDonald from the Keep Louth Special group, and started by

:11:04.:11:06.

asking Anne whether they were going to give up their fight to stop a

:11:07.:11:10.

We could've just look at the decision today and decided to sell

:11:11.:11:25.

it. We have not done that. We have decided to take it to cancel to be

:11:26.:11:40.

fully debated. It is not that clear yet. The executive board has said

:11:41.:11:45.

that they want the supermarket... The site to be sold to supermarket,

:11:46.:11:51.

but we are still waiting for the scrutiny committee to report to the

:11:52.:11:57.

council and that is not until the end of July. Those are against it

:11:58.:12:03.

can afford to shop in the independent shops, those who cannot

:12:04.:12:07.

afford it have to go to Grimsby. I do not know about you, but in a big

:12:08.:12:13.

supermarket I spend more than I should do. I have to watch my

:12:14.:12:19.

pennies as well. You cannot assume that certain people can afford and

:12:20.:12:24.

others cannot. White ash max. Why do you think that people are in favour?

:12:25.:12:31.

This is a massive site. It has potential for a larger supermarket

:12:32.:12:38.

for the people of this town who can then link their shopping habits and

:12:39.:12:40.

go into for the people of this town who can

:12:41.:12:45.

then town and super `` and shop at the other retailers. You worried

:12:46.:12:48.

that the town will lose its distinctive appeal? Not in the

:12:49.:12:53.

slightest. Lots of the shops are closing and we do not even have a

:12:54.:12:58.

larger supermarket at the moment. If we do not get something then Louth

:12:59.:13:03.

is going downhill fast. Louth is going downhill fast, that is a fair

:13:04.:13:08.

point, isn't it? Not really. I looked at the empty shops as well

:13:09.:13:13.

and what people do not realise is that when a

:13:14.:13:14.

looked at the empty shops as well and shop comes empty before it can

:13:15.:13:17.

be fitted for the other person they have to sort rarely said, that could

:13:18.:13:23.

be a three`month delay. A while ago there were a few fair shops but they

:13:24.:13:29.

have now been taken over. be a three`month delay. A while ago

:13:30.:13:33.

there were a few fair shops I cannot see anybody banging on the gates of

:13:34.:13:42.

Louth to say, let us come in and open up an independent

:13:43.:13:43.

see anybody banging on the gates of Louth shop. Until we do something to

:13:44.:13:47.

make people realise that they can come into Louth and open an

:13:48.:13:57.

individual shop they are not going to. And personally I think that a

:13:58.:14:03.

large supermarket will make able thing, yes, Louth's economic 's is

:14:04.:14:09.

good, let us try to open a shop there as well. Want to do is open,

:14:10.:14:13.

people will use the supermarket. Some people will use it. I am on a

:14:14.:14:19.

budget and I think that shopping in a supermarket ends up being more

:14:20.:14:24.

expensive. The local retailers sell good produce and it is good value

:14:25.:14:28.

for money. You must be celebrating tonight. We are very happy,

:14:29.:14:33.

definitely. We have to make for the final vote `` wait for the final

:14:34.:14:52.

vote. Thank you. Still ahead: The whole she couldn't

whose work was vital to the D`day landings.

:15:00.:15:10.

Keep your pictures coming in. This is from one of her viewers...

:15:11.:15:36.

One viewer has said that they went to see Katherine Jenkins, she was

:15:37.:15:47.

fantastic, but they spotted Peter trying to take a photograph, peering

:15:48.:15:53.

over the fence! It will be cloudy and cool with rain

:15:54.:16:02.

at times. So much for the hot weather.

:16:03.:16:11.

With the warmth is the risk of scattered thundershowers. Some sunny

:16:12.:16:17.

spells, especially across Lincolnshire. That seems to have

:16:18.:16:22.

triggered one or two sharp downpours. The shower is pushing

:16:23.:16:29.

across Lincolnshire and then cloud thickening from the south. Patchy

:16:30.:16:33.

By the end of the native looks quite By the end of the native looks quite

:16:34.:16:37.

damp, with the lowest temperature around you. The sun rises in the

:16:38.:16:44.

morning at 4:35am. These are the next high water times. Tomorrow is a

:16:45.:16:53.

cloudy day, a cool day compared with recent days, there will be outbreaks

:16:54.:16:58.

of rain, some of that rain could turn out to be persistent and heavy

:16:59.:17:04.

with some mistiness over the tops of the hills and along the coast, so

:17:05.:17:08.

really not a pleasant prospect. Let us take a look at the highest

:17:09.:17:13.

temperatures we are expecting, only around 13 or 14 Celsius. Well below

:17:14.:17:21.

average for June. That rain will continue into Wednesday evening and

:17:22.:17:25.

Wednesday nights. First thing on Thursday morning the rain will be

:17:26.:17:30.

out of the way. Temperatures rise into the weekend, but Saturday in

:17:31.:17:35.

particular sees a risk of scattered rain.

:17:36.:17:46.

I am sorry I thought that the yellows and oranges meant hot.

:17:47.:17:48.

From your skin colour prospect of! A man, recently diagnosed with a

:17:49.:17:53.

muscle`wasting disease has completed his 215`mile coast`to`coast

:17:54.:17:55.

wheelchair challenge in Hornsea. Roy Taylor,

:17:56.:17:57.

who works on RSPB sites around the Humber, has been highlighting

:17:58.:18:00.

access problems in the countryside He's travelled through

:18:01.:18:03.

East Yorkshire this week I will get through... For Roy

:18:04.:18:20.

Taylor, this was one journey that one year ago he would never have

:18:21.:18:27.

expected to make. Diagnosed with watery neurone disease insert

:18:28.:18:28.

timber, he is now largely I am alive when I am outdoors, my

:18:29.:18:44.

accesses restrict it. Everyone should have the right to be

:18:45.:18:52.

outdoors. Ten days ago he set off from Southport and began to make his

:18:53.:19:03.

way along the Pennine Trail. Nothing compared to the blisters my

:19:04.:19:12.

colleagues have got. It is getting to lunchtime. When we get round the

:19:13.:19:20.

corner we will see the Humber Bridge. It has been an eye`opener,

:19:21.:19:26.

you just walk around, you do not think about it. It is great to have

:19:27.:19:32.

somebody showing you what the problems are. He has done really

:19:33.:19:37.

well. He has great stamina and energy and I am just overwhelmed by

:19:38.:19:47.

him. He is a fantastic man. Even the dog is along for the raid, he had to

:19:48.:19:52.

go in there support fan for a while due to blistered paws. Good

:19:53.:20:02.

camaraderie and atmosphere. Just hope the weather holds up. Roy

:20:03.:20:13.

Taylor's journey came to an end. I started this because I could not do

:20:14.:20:22.

what I could do the day before as an able`bodied person and it was

:20:23.:20:26.

incredibly frustrating not to be able to go where I had been with my

:20:27.:20:28.

dog and my wife and my friends. It has been really worthwhile.

:20:29.:20:36.

Thanks to everyone who got in touch after our story about

:20:37.:20:39.

council workers who are threatening industrial action over proposed cuts

:20:40.:20:42.

Lots of response from you on this story.

:20:43.:20:45.

John in Brough says, "City of Culture closing museums `

:20:46.:20:48.

Why not have a token charge of 50p or ?1."

:20:49.:20:51.

"People would rather pay a reasonable fee to keep museums open

:20:52.:20:55.

than see workers lose jobs and facilities close.

:20:56.:20:57.

At least give them a chance to try charging for admission."

:20:58.:21:02.

But David in Market Rasen thinks, "Money the council has should be

:21:03.:21:05.

spent on services that affect people's

:21:06.:21:06.

Museums are way down the list, like libraries."

:21:07.:21:31.

Their man TT rider Karl Harris has been killed.

:21:32.:21:53.

An 80`year`old man has suffered serious injuries after stepping

:21:54.:21:55.

in to save a woman who was being attacked by a dog in Boston.

:21:56.:21:59.

It happened yesterday afternoon, on Margaret Drive in the town.

:22:00.:22:02.

Both people have been treated in hospital and the Staffordshire

:22:03.:22:04.

Today the pensioner has been described as a hero.

:22:05.:22:08.

We just did not know what to do. It was full. The children were with us

:22:09.:22:13.

and everything. Then a man came out of the house from across the road

:22:14.:22:22.

and kicked up my dog. And he just helped us, really.

:22:23.:22:26.

Cleethorpes Leisure Centre will close again this summer over safety

:22:27.:22:29.

The pool has already been closed twice

:22:30.:22:32.

since multimillion`pound repairs were completed six months ago.

:22:33.:22:34.

It's the second time the floor has been replaced.

:22:35.:22:36.

It'll take six weeks and work will start at the middle of this month.

:22:37.:22:55.

He'd been a young student in Hull, coming to the city to learn English

:22:56.:22:59.

But when war broke out Georges Begay became a secret agent.

:23:00.:23:04.

And he devised a plan which proved vital to the D`Day

:23:05.:23:07.

A French pawn broadcast on the BBC. For many listening it would have

:23:08.:23:24.

been merely entertainment. For those in the French resistance it was

:23:25.:23:31.

vital. It signalled the start of the D`day invasion. The idea of using

:23:32.:23:36.

the BBC to broadcast messages to secret agents in France came from a

:23:37.:23:41.

man who studied here at the University of Hull. His family say

:23:42.:23:46.

that the skills he learned from the city influenced his career. George

:23:47.:23:59.

Baget was a student here, he learned English and met his wife. He was

:24:00.:24:06.

cold up and was involved with liaison with the British because his

:24:07.:24:11.

English was so good. He served with the French until, after escaping at

:24:12.:24:18.

Dunkirk, he joined the British Army. He was recruited to a new

:24:19.:24:22.

clandestinely British organisation his role, Churchill said, was to set

:24:23.:24:30.

Europe ablaze. The men and women who joined it did not know what it was

:24:31.:24:37.

for. There were people from MI6 and MI5 and a lot of new people who were

:24:38.:24:40.

involved in creating this new form of warfare. George Baget's role as a

:24:41.:24:48.

radio operator was both frustrating and exciting. He was struck by the

:24:49.:24:56.

incredible slowness of getting messages to France and then getting

:24:57.:25:00.

a reply. He had come up with this idea of using the BBC, a special

:25:01.:25:07.

programme in the evening, The French Speak To The French, and what they

:25:08.:25:14.

realised was that they could use the BBC to actually communicate with

:25:15.:25:20.

secret agents in the field. Preagreed coded messages were mixed

:25:21.:25:26.

with fake ones to confuse the Germans who were also listening in.

:25:27.:25:30.

As the Allies prepared for D`day the number of messages intensified. On

:25:31.:25:36.

the evening of the 5th of June messages were read out which

:25:37.:25:38.

indicated that the landings would take place the next day. The French

:25:39.:25:48.

resistance had to prepare to support the Allied troops and to try to

:25:49.:25:53.

disrupt the German movement in this bond is to D`day. From a young man

:25:54.:26:01.

studying in Hull, George Baget grew into an agent worthy of the military

:26:02.:26:05.

Cross, and his idea proved vital to the success of the D`day landings.

:26:06.:26:10.

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

:26:11.:26:12.

A BBC investigation reveals new evidence

:26:13.:26:14.

of widespread sexual abuse at Knowl View boys' school in Rochdale.

:26:15.:26:17.

An animal research lab says it'll fight a decision to stop it

:26:18.:26:20.

Cool and cloudy with outbreaks of rain in most areas, locally heavy.

:26:21.:26:26.

The response on the results of animal testing. One viewer asks why

:26:27.:26:49.

they need to expand? Can this research be Another viewer says that

:26:50.:26:55.

they should not be allowed to expand. More pressure should be put

:26:56.:27:00.

on animal research is to find alternatives. Favela another

:27:01.:27:05.

comment, they should not be allowed to expand.

:27:06.:27:12.

That is it from us. I will be back at 10:25pm. Join me then.

:27:13.:28:12.

Find out what life's really like in the favelas.
