A senior Conservative MP calls for a pact with UKIP

:00:00.:00:11.

We are really conservative `nd will deliver a referendum and all the

:00:12.:00:26.

things they care about. 70 years since D`Day `

:00:27.:00:30.

veterans share their memorids And unsettled weather to cole with

:00:31.:01:16.

the Met Office weather warnhng for rain.

:01:17.:01:24.

A senior Lincolnshire MP has called for a pact between UKIP

:01:25.:01:27.

elections was widely interpreted as a protest vote against the lain

:01:28.:02:08.

Westminster parties but according to senior Conservatives Sir Edward

:02:09.:02:13.

Leigh, it is his party that has the most to lose if UKIP do well in next

:02:14.:02:18.

year's general election. He wants an informal pact where the parties

:02:19.:02:21.

would not fight each other hn some seats. We have to reunite the

:02:22.:02:28.

right. Informal arrangements coupled with the fact we reassure

:02:29.:02:32.

traditional voters we are conservative and will delivdr a

:02:33.:02:36.

referendum and the things they care about, we have a chance of winning

:02:37.:02:43.

the election. Bill and Sandra are conservative voters who livd in the

:02:44.:02:47.

games per constituency. How do they feel about the Tories forming an

:02:48.:02:52.

alliance with UKIP? I think Nigel Farage puts on an image that is not

:02:53.:02:59.

suitable for politics. You do not think David Cameron should do a

:03:00.:03:05.

deal? Not at all. He likes his beer and cigars, he does not seel

:03:06.:03:12.

serious. Nigel Farage has consistently ruled out formhng a

:03:13.:03:16.

pact with any other party. This is what he's said in a recent

:03:17.:03:21.

interview. It is not going to happen. UKIP is a different party

:03:22.:03:25.

and we are not going to be bought off by anybody. The Newark

:03:26.:03:31.

by`election saw the Conserv`tives hold onto the seat, despite a swing

:03:32.:03:37.

to UKIP. Sir Edward Leigh bdlieves many traditional Tory voters are

:03:38.:03:41.

alienated by coalition policies such as same`sex marriage. H think

:03:42.:03:47.

it was a mistake to bring in gay marriage but I would have thought a

:03:48.:03:51.

senior Conservative minister could Pollard jives to older tradhtional

:03:52.:03:56.

supporters who value their traditional marriage, that we were

:03:57.:04:03.

sorry we upset their beliefs. We have already seen an unlikely

:04:04.:04:07.

political marriage in Downing Street and many will speculate if there

:04:08.:04:08.

will be another sometime soon. Joining me now is Michael Brown a

:04:09.:04:12.

former Lincolnshire Conserv`tive MP Should the Tory party consider doing

:04:13.:04:25.

a pact with UKIP, even if it meant keeping out labour in areas where

:04:26.:04:30.

they could do well? I think it is not necessary. I see the pohnt

:04:31.:04:37.

Edward makes but 12 hours after a stunning Conservative victory in

:04:38.:04:43.

Newark, where UKIP did not come near winning, they picked up Libdral

:04:44.:04:47.

votes, and I think the Consdrvative Party should not worry too luch

:04:48.:04:54.

about UKIP. After all, it is the Labour Party and the Liberal

:04:55.:04:56.

Democrats who have suffered in the past couple of weeks. There is no

:04:57.:05:01.

doubt the British public in Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire are

:05:02.:05:07.

Eurosceptics. But I think that area is fortunate to have Edward Leigh,

:05:08.:05:14.

Austin Mitchell, Mr Percy, David Davis and Martin Vickers, you are ``

:05:15.:05:23.

who are Eurosceptics. But is there a danger of letting in labour if you

:05:24.:05:29.

vote UKIP? That is what Martin Vickers and Andrew Percy who have

:05:30.:05:33.

the marginal seats have to do. If you vote UKIP you will end tp with

:05:34.:05:41.

Ed Miliband. If they keep the message straight, Andrew Percy and

:05:42.:05:46.

Martin Vickers have been very Eurosceptic and independent. No UKIP

:05:47.:05:51.

candidate will defeat Edward Leigh who has a marvellous record with

:05:52.:05:56.

Euro scepticism. I agree with him 99% of the time but I think this

:05:57.:06:00.

time he is not worrying `` he is worrying unnecessarily. Let me ask

:06:01.:06:13.

you about his comments about the government apologising for

:06:14.:06:16.

legalising gay marriage. Is it wise to speak out on this? Edward has

:06:17.:06:21.

always had a principled stand on this issue and I respect it. I would

:06:22.:06:26.

not have done it myself, either But the Conservative government enacted

:06:27.:06:33.

this. I do not think any apology is now necessary. People have to focus

:06:34.:06:38.

in a year's time on this, if you want David Cameron as Prime

:06:39.:06:42.

Minister, you can only get him by voting Conservative. If you want Ed

:06:43.:06:44.

Miliband, vote UKIP or labotr. We want to hear from you

:06:45.:06:49.

on this story. Do you think a deal would

:06:50.:06:52.

work between the two parties. Maybe you have a view on

:06:53.:06:54.

Edward Leigh's comments that the Tory party should apologise

:06:55.:06:59.

for introducing gay marriagd. And you can see

:07:00.:07:22.

the full interview with Sir Edward Leigh on this weekend's Sunday

:07:23.:07:25.

Politics, where guests will include the Hull North MP Diana Johnson

:07:26.:07:28.

and Cleethorpes MP Martin Vhckers. Police

:07:29.:07:31.

from Hull will travel to Russia to continue their investigation

:07:32.:07:43.

into the loss of the Gaul. The sacrifices made by the `llied

:07:44.:07:48.

forces who invaded occupied France, 70 years ago, have been remdmbered

:07:49.:07:51.

at D Day services in Normandy. Veterans from East Yorkshird

:07:52.:07:59.

and Lincolnshire have joined political leaders and heads

:08:00.:08:03.

of state at acts of remembr`nce Gemma Dawson has been

:08:04.:08:06.

following today's events. How important was D`Day? It was 70

:08:07.:08:19.

years ago that the landings took place and on that day, more than

:08:20.:08:25.

156,000 British and Allied troops invaded Normandy in France. As many

:08:26.:08:32.

of `` is 4000 of them and 9000 Germans died on that one dax. It was

:08:33.:08:36.

the beginning of the end of the Second World War, leading to the

:08:37.:08:41.

eventual defeat of Nazi Gerlany Today a events took place in

:08:42.:08:45.

Normandy and the two veterans from East Yorkshire, there was a chance

:08:46.:08:50.

to share memories with Prince Charles. Remembering a uniqte moment

:08:51.:08:55.

in history. The Queen and ldaders from around the world have let the

:08:56.:09:01.

men who took part in D`Day. Rinse Charles chatted with an East

:09:02.:09:04.

Yorkshire `` East Yorkshire bet in Normandy. `` veterans in Normandy. I

:09:05.:09:21.

did not know what to expect. When it did happen, it was not very

:09:22.:09:26.

pleasant. There was a lot of action going on with tracer bullets and God

:09:27.:09:33.

knows what else. I was on a gun on the starboard side. I thought, if I

:09:34.:09:38.

can only fire this gun, it light study me. And so I did. On June six,

:09:39.:09:48.

1944, troops from Britain, @merica and Canada arrived in Normandy in

:09:49.:09:55.

France. For the infantry, it must've been horrific, particularly for

:09:56.:10:00.

those who did not land in the correct places and were virtually

:10:01.:10:03.

submerged when they landed. Fortunately, our boys on our beach

:10:04.:10:12.

made a good job of it. I do not like talking about what we did. Ht was

:10:13.:10:23.

not very nice. Thousands of Allied troops died on this day 70 xears

:10:24.:10:30.

ago. People call us heroes, but we are not. The heroes are still there.

:10:31.:10:38.

This sacrifice gave the Allhes their best chance of defeating Nazi

:10:39.:10:43.

Germany. Today, their efforts have been remembered with events across

:10:44.:10:49.

Normandy. While the focus of commemorations today has bedn on

:10:50.:10:53.

France, local veterans will spend the weekend reflecting on the events

:10:54.:10:59.

of 70 years ago and foodies, from Grimsby and Cleethorpes, it will

:11:00.:11:02.

include laying down their standard for the final time. The Norlandy

:11:03.:11:07.

Veterans Association has sedn numbers dwindle and Sunday will mark

:11:08.:11:08.

the official end of this br`nch A murder investigation has started

:11:09.:11:13.

following the death Police were called to this house

:11:14.:11:16.

on Frodingham Road last night. Two women and a man have bedn

:11:17.:11:20.

arrested on suspicion of murder Lincoln County Hospital says

:11:21.:11:23.

its under pressure because too many Officials say staff are assdssing

:11:24.:11:26.

patients to see if they can go home, They say no single reason is

:11:27.:11:31.

behind the increase in patidnts It's been a major priority

:11:32.:11:39.

for years. But now a new report on transport

:11:40.:11:41.

in Lincolnshire estimates that it would cost more than ?3 billion to

:11:42.:11:44.

upgrade two of The A15

:11:45.:11:47.

and the A17 are key transport links, but despite years of discussion

:11:48.:11:54.

both are still single carri`geway. A report commissioned by

:11:55.:11:59.

the county council making them dual carriageways must remain a priority

:12:00.:12:02.

despite suggestions the govdrnment It's long been the ambition

:12:03.:12:04.

of Lincolnshire's politicians to Key transport routes,

:12:05.:12:16.

like the A17 and the A15. Despite years of discussion both are

:12:17.:12:23.

still single carriageway ro`ds. A new report, to be presentdd to

:12:24.:12:27.

Lincolnshire County Council next week, says it's having an ilpact

:12:28.:12:30.

on the local economy. But it also highlights a lack

:12:31.:12:33.

of government funding to make It urges the council to

:12:34.:12:36.

carry out more research. Proving the economic benefit could

:12:37.:12:41.

help build the case for invdstment, If you can make the case th`t the

:12:42.:12:58.

benefits of something, then you can go to government and put thd case

:12:59.:13:03.

and argue for the money. If there is evidence that the economy and people

:13:04.:13:08.

of Lincolnshire will benefit by progressing something, and the

:13:09.:13:11.

evidence supports it, we should go to government and make the case By

:13:12.:13:18.

2021 the government plans to invest more than 70 billion in transport in

:13:19.:13:22.

the UK, including plans for the high`speed railway between London

:13:23.:13:29.

and the north. In Lincolnshhre, the county is expected to receive just

:13:30.:13:33.

40 million to maintain the road network, among the largest of any

:13:34.:13:40.

county in the UK. It is esthmated the cost of combining the two roads

:13:41.:13:45.

could cost more than ?3 billion This haulier believes the local

:13:46.:13:49.

economy would benefit. When people look at the map of Lincoln to

:13:50.:13:53.

relocate business they will look and often they say it is a backwater

:13:54.:14:01.

because the road structure hs poor. Improving bad roads is easidr said

:14:02.:14:06.

than done. In the short`terl, the report suggests investigating

:14:07.:14:10.

schemes such as improving jtnctions and overtaking lanes. That hs

:14:11.:14:18.

another story you might havd a view on, especially if you use the roads

:14:19.:14:35.

regularly. Still ahead on the programme tonight. The first dance.

:14:36.:14:43.

The newlyweds celebrating Htll's famously grumpy poet. I likd looking

:14:44.:14:51.

at him, he is so miserable `nd unchanged. But I know deep things

:14:52.:15:04.

are surfacing. We can look `t the photograph. It is the fish stocks at

:15:05.:15:14.

Grimsby. Taken from the clock tower. I mentioned your arms last week and

:15:15.:15:18.

Darren said he was most offdnded when I said we do not need to see so

:15:19.:15:26.

much of them. He said he wotld happily watch your arms all day I

:15:27.:15:36.

could do with some of your fake tan, they would look better if they were

:15:37.:15:40.

Browder! No sunbathing tomorrow It will be unsettled. `` Browndr. We

:15:41.:15:48.

will have torrential downpotrs and intense rain pushing up frol the

:15:49.:15:53.

south. This is linked to thd warm air coming from the south`wdst.

:15:54.:16:01.

Heavy downpours tomorrow, btt it has been nice today. We have had a fair

:16:02.:16:09.

amount of cloud, which turns the sunshine hazy. We got up to 22

:16:10.:16:15.

degrees. Overnight, largely dry with clear spells, and it whll not

:16:16.:16:16.

be called. `` cold. We will start the day with showers

:16:17.:16:37.

pushing up from the south. Heavy, isolated thunderstorms. We light see

:16:38.:16:42.

showers merging into more organised heavy, thundery rain, which will

:16:43.:16:48.

come up from the south`west. Intense downpours and I would not bd

:16:49.:16:52.

surprised if we do not have surface water building in a few spots. It

:16:53.:16:57.

will be cooler than today btt when the rain clears to the north,

:16:58.:17:02.

temperatures will pick up l`ter But by the end of the day it will feel

:17:03.:17:08.

less humid. On Sunday, it whll feel fresher. Sunshine and a few showers.

:17:09.:17:19.

The showers could be heavy. They will be hit and miss, as well.

:17:20.:17:24.

Showers are the theme at thd start of the week, but we hope it will

:17:25.:17:32.

settle by the end of the wedk. We have e`mails. Scarecrows. Straw

:17:33.:17:39.

on the arms. We had a scarecrow Festival and my

:17:40.:17:41.

mother did my sister and I one. A team of police officers are

:17:42.:17:49.

planning to travel to Russi` to continue an investigation

:17:50.:17:52.

into the loss of Hull trawldr 36 men died when the ship wdnt

:17:53.:17:55.

down in the Barents Sea. Last year, Humberside Policd said

:17:56.:18:00.

authorities in Russia were trying to identify human remains found

:18:01.:18:03.

on a beach there. Jill Archbold is at

:18:04.:18:08.

St Andrew's Quay. What is important about this

:18:09.:18:23.

potential visit? I am standhng at the ball nose. At this point many

:18:24.:18:27.

have previously come to remdmber the 30 `` 36 crew of members. `` the

:18:28.:18:36.

ball those. The remains of up to ten have been

:18:37.:18:48.

found buried on the coast of Russia. It was said it was a reason`ble

:18:49.:18:53.

theory that they could be crew members from the Gaul. Humbdrside

:18:54.:18:58.

Police want to send three police officers and a scientist robber who

:18:59.:19:03.

need permission from the Russian authorities to do that, but a

:19:04.:19:06.

warning to the families it could be a slow process. Karl Davis posture

:19:07.:19:19.

`` Karl Davis uncle was on the vessel.

:19:20.:19:19.

a slow process. Karl Davis posture `` Karl Davis uncle was on the

:19:20.:19:24.

vessel. It has been a long journey but we are getting closer to the

:19:25.:19:29.

end. We have to let the civhl service do their thing. As H said,

:19:30.:19:35.

this visit is in the hands of the Russian authorities. Humberside

:19:36.:19:37.

Police are waiting for the green light from them. They said they

:19:38.:19:44.

would like to fly out to Russia as soon as possible. One relathve said

:19:45.:19:49.

the 40 years has been like ` black hole in his family's timeline. What

:19:50.:19:55.

is clear is that it will be a long process, finding out if he can patch

:19:56.:20:00.

up the hole by possibly burxing a member of his family. That hs a

:20:01.:20:08.

subject we have followed for many years and will continue to do so.

:20:09.:20:11.

Volunteers will be on the streets of Goole for

:20:12.:20:13.

the first time this weekend to help keep people safe on a night out

:20:14.:20:17.

A similar scheme was set up in Lincoln more than six ye`rs ago

:20:18.:20:21.

and helped cut alcohol`related violent crime.

:20:22.:20:22.

Organisers in Goole say thex hope the new team, known as stredt angels

:20:23.:20:26.

They are walking around as the eyes and ears of the police, the

:20:27.:20:39.

Ambulance Service and making sure people are OK. Getting home safely

:20:40.:20:45.

and not leaving premises by themselves and walking home. Making

:20:46.:20:55.

sure they have somebody to talk to. Last night we spoke about former

:20:56.:20:59.

rubbish tips in Lincoln that could have new homes built close to them.

on a train to London. Whitstn weddings was written by Philip

:22:57.:23:01.

Larkin about a train journex from Hull to London. Our arts

:23:02.:23:06.

correspondent was on board for the journey and has this report. It is a

:23:07.:23:16.

poem inspired by wedding parties boarding the train from Hull to

:23:17.:23:21.

London. To mark the 50th anniversary of Whitsun weddings, actors playing

:23:22.:23:29.

newlyweds boarded four and the unique `` a unique performance. At

station after station, all couples boarded, watched like 50 ye`rs ago

:23:56.:24:06.

I got changed in the toilet and everybody was coming up to le saying

:24:07.:24:09.

you look lovely, you look bdautiful, congratulations. Throughout the

:24:10.:24:15.

journey there was a recording of the actor Bill Nighy reading out the

:24:16.:24:31.

poems. Philip Larkin worked as a librarian at the University of Hull

:24:32.:24:39.

when he wrote his best works. Philip Larkin is a national poet, `

:24:40.:24:44.

national treasure. Making that connection between Hull and London

:24:45.:24:49.

and the National cultural scene is important. Doing it in this unusual

:24:50.:24:54.

way will attract attention. The actors are staying in character for

:24:55.:24:58.

the whole journey. The audidnce who have come to see them have travelled

:24:59.:25:05.

far and wide. Among the audhence Michelle and her husband, who flew

:25:06.:25:10.

in from Paris especially. Wd had to come here. We are not the only ones

:25:11.:25:17.

who have come far. We feel privileged. Like we are in on a good

:25:18.:25:22.

secret. I like looking at Philip Larkin, he is so miserable `nd

:25:23.:25:27.

unchanged. I know deep things are servicing inside. As the tr`in

:25:28.:25:33.

reached London, the perform`nce ended with an unusual first wedding

:25:34.:25:35.

dance. Let's get a recap of the

:26:22.:26:25.

his comments about merging with UKIP for certain seats in the eldction

:26:26.:26:30.

and his comments about gay larriage. David in Boston said if he feels

:26:31.:26:34.

that way he should join UKIP stop what a despicable set of colments.

:26:35.:26:40.

He said no chance, making a deal with the Tories. And Olivia who is

legalising gay marriage, it needs to be accepted people are born with

their sexuality, they do not choose it. Kate said what my MPs s`id is a

:26:58.:27:03.

disgrace. It is his opinion and not mine. I'm sure it is not thd opinion
