in advance of the general election. That is all from the BBC News

:00:00.:00:00.

Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:07.:00:08.

The ?100 parking charge ` now there are calls tighter controls

:00:09.:00:13.

You can't afford to lay out ?10 for 20 minutes.

:00:14.:00:16.

Just 12 hours to prepare ` the full scale of December's tidal

:00:17.:00:26.

In December this area was under water ` the council said it did what

:00:27.:00:31.

it could to save people and their properties.

the vital role played by Lincolnshire's air crews

:00:36.:00:39.

A Royal welcome for a futurd King ` Prince William drops in

:00:40.:00:44.

It has been a lively afternoon. Funnel clouds have been reported.

:00:45.:00:56.

The latest coming up shortlx. There are calls for tighter controls

:00:57.:01:04.

over parking penalties being charged by private companies after `n

:01:05.:01:07.

East Yorkshire pensioner was ordered to pay ?100 when HE says he was

:01:08.:01:13.

only three minutes over timd. Norman Hunt says he won't p`y

:01:14.:01:17.

the parking charge In a moment we'll be hearing

:01:18.:01:19.

from a consumer expert who says the penalties although perfdctly

:01:20.:01:24.

legal are excessive. But first Crispin Rolfe

:01:25.:01:27.

has this report. Over time at a private`run car park

:01:28.:01:36.

in Hessle, providing free spaces But Norman Hunt

:01:37.:01:40.

from Hull was shocked to be given a charge of ?100 for parking longer

:01:41.:01:43.

than he was allowed to. It's just not on cos if it's

:01:44.:01:47.

a car park, car park for wh`t? Because you can't do nothing

:01:48.:01:50.

in 20 minutes. And to be stung ?100 for it,

:01:51.:01:53.

with leniency of them saying, "Well, if you pay it in such`and`stch

:01:54.:01:56.

a time, make it 60." But what happened to

:01:57.:01:59.

Norman's not unusual. He received not a penalty,

:02:00.:02:02.

but a private parking chargd notice for what amounts to trespass

:02:03.:02:06.

as long the charge is reasonable, compensates the landowner,

:02:07.:02:09.

and doesn't penalise the drhver It all dates back to

:02:10.:02:13.

the 2012 Protection of Freedoms Act, which stopped private companies from

:02:14.:02:21.

wheel clamping, but made it easier to pursue a vehicle's owner for

:02:22.:02:24.

costs, of which there's no laximum. So whereas councils might issue

:02:25.:02:31.

a notice for ?50, or ?25 if paid within 14 daxs, for

:02:32.:02:34.

private parking charges, it's more They'll make it ?40

the British Parking Association The British Parking Association s

guidelines are that After that, the only thing left

:02:50.:03:04.

for the gentleman to question would be the proportionality,

:03:05.:03:10.

bearing in mind he's only gone over But in Hessle, a local hairdressers

:03:11.:03:13.

says that fear of these charges is I get clients coming in

:03:14.:03:20.

and I have to say to them, and they say, "Yeah," and I say

charge like this. I began bx asking him whether Mr Hunt's case hs

:03:55.:03:58.

unusual. Unfortunately, this is the sort of

:03:59.:04:06.

story we hear about quite a bit motorists hit with excessivd unfair

:04:07.:04:12.

fines. The message to anyond caught by any fine is do not autom`tically

:04:13.:04:19.

paying. First, way up your options because there can be a way out. Mr

:04:20.:04:24.

Hunt was three minutes over the limit and he got a ?100 find. Is

:04:25.:04:28.

that proportionate? I can think anybody could argue that. Anyone in

:04:29.:04:37.

this sort of position should not automatically pay. Where thdy

:04:38.:04:41.

options. In this sort of situation where it is a private firm, there

:04:42.:04:47.

are a few options. You could ignore it and hope it goes away. It sounds

:04:48.:04:52.

childish but it sometimes works But they can take you to court. That is

:04:53.:04:57.

the only way ultimately thex can enforce it. It might be better to go

:04:58.:05:04.

down the official route, whhch is to make a formal appeal. If yot stay

:05:05.:05:10.

longer than you are allowed and there is a clear sign, it is your

:05:11.:05:17.

own fault. You said if therd is a clear sign. Often, signs ard not

:05:18.:05:28.

clear. There might be the shgn that it is very clear in one corner. If

:05:29.:05:33.

there is a sign, should you still active? If somebody blocks the

:05:34.:05:39.

traffic, they deserve to be fined. However, we heard too many dxamples

:05:40.:05:44.

of unfair fines, and that is why it is important people know thdir

:05:45.:05:49.

rights and fighting if they truly believe it is unfair. Thank you

:05:50.:05:54.

Do you agree that the penalties being charged by private colpanies

:05:55.:05:58.

are excessive or should drivers just pay up when they are c`ught?

:05:59.:06:01.

Have you been in a similar situation?

A new report into December's floods shows that Lincolnshhre had

:07:21.:07:38.

only 12 hours notice that the tidal surge was going to be so high.

:07:39.:07:42.

It's almost six months to the day since water overwhelmed parts

:07:43.:07:45.

More than ?8 million worth of damage was done to flood defences, roads

:07:46.:07:50.

In total, 607 homes were flooded ` the majority were in Boston.

:07:51.:07:54.

44 people had to be rescued from flood waters and 203 pdople

:07:55.:07:58.

What's the background to this report?

:07:59.:08:09.

December 's tidal surge was a major emergency. The police, fire

:08:10.:08:20.

brigade, the ambulance, the Environment Agency, and county

:08:21.:08:29.

councils all spent time planning for something that this. It was the

:08:30.:08:37.

largest storm surge that hit the east coast since 1953. Boston's

:08:38.:08:44.

flood defences were overcomd. Hundreds of homes were inundated.

:08:45.:08:48.

Six homes ago, these gardens were full of carpet and sofas as families

:08:49.:08:52.

wedged to repair the flood damage. Emergency services have looked at

:08:53.:08:57.

how they dealt with the flooding and have come together to compile this

:08:58.:09:00.

report, and to see what lessons can be learned for the future. One thing

:09:01.:09:06.

that has emerged is due to hts geography, Lincolnshire onlx had 12

:09:07.:09:10.

hours warning of the severity of the floods, while other areas knew much

:09:11.:09:18.

any how bad it was likely to get. It appeared that those impacts might be

:09:19.:09:22.

minimum. The forecast is suddenly changed. Our response was still

:09:23.:09:33.

flexible. David Philpott saxs the extent of the flooding came as a

:09:34.:09:39.

surprise. I don't think we realised how dangerous it would have been and

:09:40.:09:52.

how high the tide would havd been. The report makes several

:09:53.:09:52.

recommendations, including: Jarrod Parker is still without

:09:53.:10:15.

carpets. She feels more shotld have been done in the aftermath to help

:10:16.:10:21.

flood victims. I don't think much to the council that. There havd never

:10:22.:10:26.

been round, never not on my door. On the whole, emergency planners say

:10:27.:10:29.

the county is better protected than it has ever been in the past, but

:10:30.:10:33.

that will come as little colfort to those who were affected. Wh`t are

:10:34.:10:40.

the plans to avoid similar flooding in the future?

:10:41.:10:45.

The biggest scheme is the Boston tidal barrier. It is like a smaller

:10:46.:10:49.

version of the barrier on the Thames. The scheme is expected to be

:10:50.:11:04.

complete by 2019. The local MP says he wants to see building work begin

:11:05.:11:09.

on it as soon as possible. Thank you. We will continue to

:11:10.:11:10.

follow that. Prince William spent

:11:11.:11:15.

the morning meeting pupils from an East Yorkshire school in

:11:16.:11:17.

his first ever visit to the county. Crowds of hundreds waited

:11:18.:11:21.

in the rain to see him arrive He was there to launch

:11:22.:11:24.

a new award for primary school children to help them prepare for

:11:25.:11:28.

the step up to secondary school wasn't going to deter these die`hard

:11:29.:11:31.

fans. Well, the future king, I maxbe won't

:11:32.:11:36.

see him again. It's lovely. I just wish the weather had been bdtter. A

:11:37.:11:40.

little bit wet, but it's not too cold so it's OK. I'll wait. How long

:11:41.:11:44.

would you wait in the rain for Prince William? Oh, about fhve

:11:45.:11:48.

hours. But the rain did mean no helicopter

:11:49.:11:49.

arrival. The Prince had to journey from Doncaster airport by c`r. And

:11:50.:11:53.

when he arrived, he was gredted like a rockstar. SCREAMING. This is

:11:54.:11:56.

Prince William's first visit to East Yorkshire, so it's no wonder crowds

:11:57.:12:00.

of hundreds have waited to see him. After a performance from thd school

:12:01.:12:09.

band, it was time to meet the pupils, and the Prince was lodest

:12:10.:12:12.

about his own musical talent. I used to play the piano, trumpet

:12:13.:12:18.

and drums when I was about xour age, but I couldn't read music. There's

:12:19.:12:22.

only so much you can remembdr! The Prince was also given a

:12:23.:12:26.

bridge`building demonstration by local primary school pupils. They're

:12:27.:12:29.

taking part in the new Junior Prince's award he was here to

:12:30.:12:33.

launch. And his visit was cdrtainly appreciated.

:12:34.:12:36.

This means so much. It means the world to me, and I'm going to

:12:37.:12:40.

remember it all my life. I never thought he would come to Goole. It's

:12:41.:12:45.

such a small time. He asked what was the best thing we'd done in it.

:12:46.:12:53.

Everyone has had a chance to see him. For the town and this `rea

:12:54.:12:58.

it's lifted us. Despite the weather, we're on cloud nine. It's bden

:12:59.:13:03.

brilliant. After a school tour there w`s just

:13:04.:13:12.

enough time to meet the crowds. And thanks to better weather, he

:13:13.:13:19.

could make a truly royal exht. Still ahead: The Lincolnshire RAF

:13:20.:13:52.

teams who played a vital part in the D`Day landings. The Germans knew we

:13:53.:14:10.

were coming. Lots of picturds this afternoon.

:14:11.:14:17.

Here is one of the funnel cloud Is it a funnel cloud?

:14:18.:14:28.

I think it is, actually. It is basically what you get before it

:14:29.:14:32.

touches down to a tornado, so it is really exciting. Somebody asked if

:14:33.:14:37.

there were more common thesd days, but it is just because everxone has

:14:38.:14:42.

cameras on their mobile phones. Is the same one that moves `re

:14:43.:14:47.

different ones? Different ones develop. We have had

:14:48.:14:50.

them in market brazen, Howddn, Scunthorpe. There have developed as

:14:51.:14:59.

part of the same weather system Thank you for pictures.

:15:00.:15:04.

Every lively conditions indded. I have never seen so many pictures of

:15:05.:15:10.

funnel cloud in one afternoon. Tomorrow, a cloudy jump`start with

:15:11.:15:16.

sunny spells later. This is the system that brought these ftnnel

:15:17.:15:22.

clouds. Friday looks a beautiful day. One with some sunshine. More

:15:23.:15:27.

incivility at the weekend mdan a risk of them is astonished. You can

:15:28.:15:40.

see the atmosphere spinning around. Patchy outbreaks of rain, some

:15:41.:15:43.

funnel clouds, but graduallx things will stabilise overnight. Still

:15:44.:15:48.

patchy rain, the damage is coming in at 11 Celsius. That is 52

:15:49.:16:01.

Fahrenheit. A great, damp starts Thursday. Still a bit of patchy rain

:16:02.:16:06.

in places. That will fizzle through the day. Skies will brighten. The

:16:07.:16:14.

afternoon, mostly dry with sunshine. An improving trend. The bredze will

:16:15.:16:22.

be moderate. Top temperaturds, 6 in Hull. Friday looks a beautiful day

:16:23.:16:32.

across all parts of our reghon. Dry and warm with a good deal of

:16:33.:16:37.

sunshine. Over the weekend, that one will bring a risk of thunderstorms,

:16:38.:16:41.

particularly on Saturday, when the Met office have a yellow warning in

:16:42.:16:48.

place. At least the forecast. Last night, people were leg`lised.

:16:49.:16:56.

Somebody said, the forecast was so bad, Paul, put his name to ht. Has

:16:57.:17:02.

the BBC forgotten his name, he has taken so many days off.

:17:03.:17:10.

Thank you for highlighting that My pleasure. So you tomorrow.

:17:11.:17:20.

A five pence "tax" on plastic bags and plans to give

:17:21.:17:23.

voters the right to sack thdir MP were two of the measures announced

:17:24.:17:27.

Our Political Editor Tim Iredale is in Westminster .

:17:28.:17:29.

Are East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire's MPs really going

:17:30.:17:31.

to support a bill that would give voters more

:17:32.:17:34.

So we are told in cases where MPs commit an act of serious wrongdoing,

:17:35.:17:42.

people in their constituencx would be able to start a petition with a

:17:43.:17:45.

view to getting rid of that naughty MP. This is something that has been

:17:46.:17:52.

backed by MPs including Andrew Percy. He has given a cautious

:17:53.:17:56.

welcome to the proposal. He said they do not go far enough.

:17:57.:18:00.

This'll be the first government that's put

:18:01.:18:02.

something in place to allow the public to recall their MPs hf they

:18:03.:18:05.

It's not quite as far as I'd've liked it to have gone,

:18:06.:18:10.

but this is probably the only show in town for now, so

:18:11.:18:13.

let's get this on the statute books, then we can see whether in future

:18:14.:18:17.

But giving people the power to recall is a good start.

:18:18.:18:28.

Labour says it has been abott what hasn't been in the Queen's Speech

:18:29.:18:35.

rather than what has been in it particularly immigration, something

:18:36.:18:39.

which dominated the recent Duropean election campaign in Yorkshhre and

:18:40.:18:44.

Lincolnshire. Yvette Cooper said the government should have done more to

:18:45.:18:48.

deal with many of the issues surrounding migrant workers. I think

:18:49.:18:55.

people are worried about employers who are exploiting cheap migrant

:18:56.:18:59.

labour to undercut local wages. They may be pushing people onto zero

:19:00.:19:04.

hours contracts, employing people illegally. It has to be stopped and

:19:05.:19:08.

dealt with. The Queen's Spedch could have done that.

:19:09.:19:10.

reduced the number of plasthc bags there. We asked shoppers in Hull

:19:11.:19:38.

would they still pay 5p for a plastic bag?

:19:39.:19:44.

I think they should charge 40 pence for carrier bags, all of thdm,

:19:45.:19:47.

How can people afford to pax for carrier bags all the tile?

:19:48.:19:51.

I mean, really, what do you do with them ` tse them

:19:52.:19:54.

It's a necessity, so if I nded it, I'll have to buy it.

:19:55.:20:02.

But it was also a massive operation in the `ir.

:20:03.:21:23.

In the second of our special reports for

:21:24.:21:25.

the 70th anniversary, we look at the part Lincolnshire air crews played.

:21:26.:21:28.

And the man who was one of the few to know exactly where

:21:29.:21:32.

And the German defences needed to be weakened.

:21:33.:21:50.

A job often undertaken by the Lincolnshire`based bombers.

:21:51.:22:00.

It was vital we gained their superiority over France, supremacy

:22:01.:22:05.

even. Without that, the inv`sion could not have gone ahead bdcause

:22:06.:22:09.

the casualties would have bden too great. In the six months up to

:22:10.:22:14.

D`Day, we destroyed the infrastructure, railways, bridges

:22:15.:22:19.

and so on. In that six months, the Allied air forces through `` flew

:22:20.:22:25.

2000 sorties. Despite this build`up,

:22:26.:22:29.

it was vital to keep the ex`ct plans One of the few who was privx to

:22:30.:22:32.

the secret was Robert Johnson I was told to prepare some laps

:22:33.:22:51.

showing the landing area, which were highly secret. It was cruci`l

:22:52.:22:57.

information. The Germans kndw we were coming but didn't know where or

:22:58.:23:03.

when. In that little book, ht was in there. I spent the week toing and

:23:04.:23:10.

froing. I didn't have a drink all that time. To protect the plans even

:23:11.:23:19.

further, there where decepthon schemes,

:23:20.:23:25.

schemes including on the evd of D`Day Operation Taxable carried out

:23:26.:23:28.

it was a vital operation. It is one of the most important things they

:23:29.:23:43.

did. They flew an incrediblx precision navigation exercise. Only

:23:44.:23:52.

18 ships under them. The whole effect was to look like a great

:23:53.:23:57.

convoy going towards this p`rt of France at eight knots. Therd was

:23:58.:23:58.

another operation further e`st. The Germans were faced with three

:23:59.:24:04.

different apparent invasions. It confised

:24:05.:24:06.

and divided their defences. Within hours the real armad` of

:24:07.:24:08.

planes and ships was at Norlandy. A football`mad teenager frol Hull

:24:09.:24:23.

and her friend are heading to Brazil to carry the flag for England

:24:24.:24:26.

at the World Cup. 16`year`old Emily Escreet's mum won

the trip for her daughter after But the parents will be left

behind when the Hull teenagdrs leave exams behind and head to thd

Amazon Rainforest. are the is a Hull girl has been

:24:41.:24:58.

chosen to carry the flag for their heroes. I got a call from mx mum,

:24:59.:25:02.

and she was screaming and shouting down the phone. I thought something

:25:03.:25:06.

was the matter. She said, you have won a trip to Brazil. Me and my

:25:07.:25:11.

friend were jumping around like lunatics. It happened after her mum

:25:12.:25:15.

entered a competition to describe her footy mad teenager. Sattrday

:25:16.:25:21.

morning, play football, Sattrday afternoon, she goes to watch Hull

city. So in the mornings, she does refereeing. Emily is heading to

:25:28.:25:33.

Brazil, where she will lead out England to face Italy in thdir

:25:34.:25:36.

opening match. Her friend J`mie is going with her.

:25:37.:25:40.

In the end, it all comes down to the match day. We also go on a trip down

:25:41.:25:46.

the Amazon, so that should be interesting, seeing the tribes and

:25:47.:25:52.

wildlife that Brazil has to offer. Seeing Hull city at Wembley was a

:25:53.:25:57.

dream come true for Emily. She has been following the Tigers and she

:25:58.:26:00.

was three. She now gets to be strolled to shoulder with hdr

:26:01.:26:05.

international heroes at the World Cup. I am extremely lucky. Ht is

:26:06.:26:11.

going to be magnificent. It is an unbelievable opportunity. There is

:26:12.:26:20.

only six of is going from the UK. It is amazing.

:26:21.:26:23.

Especially as to Hull teenagers will be in the thick of a party like this

:26:24.:26:32.

one (at home in has her tie`macro. Good luck to Emily.

:26:33.:26:35.
