Within two years there were more than 120 branches in the UK

:02:30.:02:41.

And, of course, we had a meeting and said hd might

Over the years they've shardd their D`Day stories.

Alf Duncan was just 17 and had been serving on the risky

Arctic convoys, only to facd new dangers off the French coast.

:03:00.:03:05.

There was one time we got a wire around our screw

:03:06.:03:08.

Bu lunchtime there was literally thousands laid de`d.

:03:09.:03:23.

The French, the local peopld, we so pleased to see us.

:03:24.:03:48.

Today's commemorations began in France. The Cleethorpes vetdrans are

:03:49.:04:10.

focusing on home events. On Sunday they will lay up

their standard, marking the official When we think,

the anniversary. In a moment. Help yourself. The city

:04:56.:04:57.

Tests are being carried out on two former rubbish tips in Lincoln to

:04:58.:05:00.

see if they could be built on as part of a major housing devdlopment.

:05:01.:05:04.

The work is an important stdp towards building thousands of new

:05:05.:05:07.

The local council insisted tonight that it won't put homes dirdctly

:05:08.:05:12.

on top of the tips, which experts say can be made safe.

:05:13.:05:15.

But local people still have concerns.

:05:16.:05:17.

Our Rural Affairs Correspondent Paul Murphy reports.

:05:18.:05:24.

Testing is now beginning on this former landfill site in Lincoln The

:05:25.:05:34.

site forms just a small part of a bigger development plan. It's called

:05:35.:05:45.

the Western growth corridor. But there is likely to be heavy public

:05:46.:05:59.

scrutiny. If you say OK don't build here, don't build there. Whdre are

:06:00.:06:07.

we going to live? That could be toxins in the ground. And stbsidence

:06:08.:06:09.

in a few years time. Unsurprisingly, there is a dangerous

:06:10.:06:21.

legacy. Potential subsidencd of any future housing. Houses could settle

:06:22.:06:25.

because of the waste decomposing underneath. There are also

:06:26.:06:33.

contamination issues. It is recognised that this area is far

:06:34.:06:37.

from being ideal. Not only was it once used for landfill, it hs also

:06:38.:06:42.

considered to be at risk from flooding. The coal authoritx is

:06:43.:06:49.

under pressure to build new homes at a time of national housing shortage.

:06:50.:06:55.

The council insists there whll be no houses directly on top of the former

:06:56.:06:59.

rubbish tip. Public safety will always come first. There has been a

:07:00.:07:05.

long debate about flood risk in this area. This is exactly the s`me stop

:07:06.:07:12.

it needs to be managed. We will make certain if there are any hazards we

:07:13.:07:14.

will identify them and deal with This is one of the biggest

:07:15.:07:19.

development in the city for decades. We have been using landfill site for

:07:20.:07:46.

development from many years. Provided you understand the site and

:07:47.:07:50.

carry out the proper mediathon then it is OK. The waste can cause

:07:51.:08:07.

impacts on health. Had that in cases where methane gases escape? Yes they

:08:08.:08:14.

have. There was a case back in the 1980s. A house near a landfhll site

:08:15.:08:22.

are? `` at Harrison are a l`ndfill site had an incident of gas. For

:08:23.:08:29.

those watching now who wouldn't buy a house on the landfill sitd, are

:08:30.:08:37.

they worrying unnecessarily? Our understanding has increased

:08:38.:08:43.

immensely since the 1980s. These developments should be entirely

:08:44.:08:49.

safe. Our council is right to look at land like this? Our policy of

:08:50.:08:56.

looking at these sites has led us to this stage over the years. We still

:08:57.:09:05.

need to ensure that we reusd land effectively.

:09:06.:09:33.

The Ministry of Defence has announced th`t the

:09:34.:09:35.

soldier killed at an army b`se in Cumbria was originally from Hull.

:09:36.:09:39.

It's understood Sergeant Mark Foley died when a vehicle rolled over

:09:40.:09:44.

at Warcop near Appleby yesterday mornhng.

:09:45.:09:47.

The 31`year`old leaves behind a wife and two children.

:09:48.:09:52.

People affected by the flooding in Boston six months ago have been

:09:53.:09:55.

told to take up a grant or risk losing the loney.

:09:56.:09:59.

Officials from the Borough Council have been encouraging householders

:10:00.:10:02.

and businesses to claim their free Government grant.

:10:03.:10:04.

If the cash isn't handed out, it will go back into central ftnding.

:10:05.:10:10.

Otherwise, it will go back to central Government

:10:11.:10:15.

and that really would be a waste of our time going to Parlialent to

:10:16.:10:19.

The RAF has apologised after a loud sonic boom shook homes in the

Typhoon jets from Coningsby were launched on

The Typhoons were authorised to go supersonic over land

:10:41.:10:44.

A senior judge in Hull has been forced to hntroduce

:10:45.:10:54.

special measures in the citx's court in response to a boycott of

:10:55.:10:57.

It's led to an increasing ntmber of defendants having no solhcitor

:10:58.:11:02.

to represent them, which is causing long delays.

:11:03.:11:04.

The solicitors say they want to force the government to change its

:11:05.:11:07.

mind about legal aid reforms and today the Hull East MP, Karl Turner

:11:08.:11:11.

Caroline Bilton is outside Hull Crown Court, Caroline what s

:11:12.:11:15.

Since April there has been a catalogue of cases here at

:11:16.:11:24.

Hull Crown Court that have dither been delayed or disrupted

:11:25.:11:26.

because people have been forced to represent themselves.

:11:27.:11:28.

One case which stands out is that of an 81`year`old man who w`s

:11:29.:11:32.

remanded in custody on an attempted murder charge

:11:33.:11:34.

No lawyer was available to lake a bail application for him.

:11:35.:11:38.

This has all come about bec`use solicitors and barristers hdre

:11:39.:11:41.

in the city are protesting over government cuts to legal aid fees.

:11:42.:11:44.

They have effectively dug their heels in an attempt to make

:11:45.:11:47.

a point to government of wh`t these cuts will do to the justice system.

:11:48.:11:51.

As a result Jeremey Richardson QC has issued new guidance to dnable

:11:52.:11:54.

the court to continue to function ` there are fears here that whthout

:11:55.:11:58.

it the wheels of justice will grind to a halt

:11:59.:12:06.

This Bill Waddington represdnts criminal

:12:07.:12:13.

what this is designed to delonstrate is what life would be like hn the

:12:14.:12:19.

criminal justice system if the government gets its way with these

:12:20.:12:27.

particular proposals. The CPS argues that this is an isolated problem.

:12:28.:12:34.

But Karl Turner the whole MP, says this has the potential to dhsrupt

:12:35.:12:36.

quads up and down the country. So bad is the situation that the

:12:37.:12:39.

Recorder of Hull Crown Court has issued a practice direction advising

:12:40.:12:42.

defendants who are unrepresdnted how Could we please have

:12:43.:12:46.

an urgent debate on the isste and the fact that the criminal justice

:12:47.:12:53.

system is in complete chaos. In a statement from the minhstry of

:12:54.:13:07.

justice it's a day have been left with no choice but to significantly

:13:08.:13:12.

cut the money spent on legal aid. It is the boycott has been combined to

:13:13.:13:16.

a few parts of the country `nd the impact has been minimal.

:13:17.:13:21.

Ironically, the delays are costing money. Money that the government is

:13:22.:13:33.

trying to save. If you are `ffected by one of those stories, yot can

This is an example of a pathent with a cancer. You can see the stgar

where this cancer is. Radio`ctive traitors have to be made locally.

:18:52.:18:57.

Thanks to the new scanner a team at the University of Hull will be able

to tailor make them to suit individual patient needs. This will

allow us to diagnose diseasds better. If you think about

enjoy free, home`grown vegetables thanks to a gardening project

in the city centre. Volunteers have been busily

:20:17.:20:19.

planting all afternoon. Amanda White went

:20:20.:20:20.

along to find out more. This is what you normally sde

:20:21.:20:33.

in a city centre garden, ornamental flower beds,

:20:34.:20:35.

but in Todmorden in West Yorkshire every scrap of spare land is planted

:20:36.:20:39.

with food for local people to eat. Edible bed is promoting healthy

:20:40.:21:00.

eating. We're looking at thd positive of things. It is ptrely for

:21:01.:21:06.

people to come along and harvest the plants when they are ready.

:21:07.:21:09.

It might be small beginnings, but from these seeds it's hoped

:21:10.:21:12.

People can see how the vegetables grow. I think it will inspire

:21:13.:21:23.

people. I've never seen this before. Last year a similar idea was

:21:24.:21:28.

trialled in Beverley, but the townsfolk were too polite to

:21:29.:21:31.

help themselves. When you are promoting healthy

:21:32.:21:41.

eating and having a plot in the city centre is ideal. If your package

realistic. According to resdarch, Westminster and is the most

expensive place to rent in the country. Hull is the third cheapest.

I don't think I would want ` home built on a landfill site. All those

noxious gases filtering through the soil. It was partly a landfhll

:27:00.:27:13.

site. Parts were contaminatdd. It was gassing site producing lethane.

:27:14.:27:21.

And Maureen says, why does ht have to be new houses? We have so many

:27:22.:27:27.

empty properties left. Before new ones built, these old ones should be

:27:28.:27:37.

renovated. Thank you all watching. We will be talking about legal aid a
