Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.
Two weeks of rain in 20 minttes ` exceptional downfalls are blamed
Dummies not allowed ` the fhght against tooth decay in toddlers
As I was watching last night, basically the drains were not
capable of taking it. They were not man enough.
Near Gainsborough, 22 milliletres of rain fell in less than half an hour.
Also tonight: Dummies not allowed ` the fhght
against tooth decay in toddlers Hull prepares for the arriv`l
of the Queen's Commonwealth Baton. And the strange knitted objdcts
appearing on one city's strdets And that the recent thunderstorms,
settled weather is on the w`y. The latest coming up shortly.
People living in parts of Lincolnshire affected
by flash flooding have been told that drains were overwhelmed
Two weeks' worth of rain fell in just twenty minutes.
Gainsborough, Horncastle and Blyton were `mong the
areas hit following the torrential downpour yesterday afternoon.
Lincolnshire County Council say they will investigate what happened.
We will hear from them in a moment, but first, Crispin Rolfe is live
Is the clean`up operation still going on now? Peter, in
Gainsborough, there is still an effort going on at this yard and
that some people's homes. L`rgely, it is over. But the problem is
people cannot relax. The latest studies suggest we will see more and
more some flash flooding, and that in itself could be a problel for
people in terms of knowing when the clean`up operation is compldte.
There is a drain and there that is not working. It is just not taking
the quantity of water. Flash floods in Gainsborough, which left John's
ground floor sopping wet. Today he and others are looking to the
authorities to improve drainage on the estate. Was devastating. There
was water running literally in the front door, in the back door. It was
seeping under the side of the house from a layman's view. While I was
watching it last night, bashcally, the drains were not capable of
taking it. Further down the road, Lorraine claims it is not jtst freak
weather at fault, but outdated drains. That was full right to the
top of the drain, where we couldn't use it once we had washed up last
night. It all flooded back. Yesterday, this train simplx did not
do its job, as you can see from the grass around. The water company say
this is because of the extr`ordinary amount of rain, meaning its sewers
could not cope, but insist that it is treating sewage as a priority.
Last night, I had to clean ` lot of sludge and human faeces awax from
the car so my kids could get in this morning. Today, it has also been a
clean`up for some shops at Marshall's Yard, but despitd the
council describing the rainfall is exceptional, latest research from
The Met Office and Newcastld University says we should all expect
more some flash flooding. Ydsterday, the air had its origins frol all the
way over North Africa, a lot of instability, and you can sed the
result on yesterday afternoon's radar sequence. Look at these vivid
greens that went through Lincoln and Gainsborough, and then throtgh
eastern part of the county `nd out into the North Sea. With totals like
two weeks' worth of rainfall in half an hour, flash flooding in these
situations is almost inevit`ble For Gainsborough, which
situations is almost inevit`ble For proper to develop in areas that
might already face a signifhcant flash flooding problems.
Mark Welsh is from Lincolnshire County Council,
an event that beats the drahnage system. I think systems in
Gainsborough will be similar to those elsewhere in the areas.
Gainsborough is growing raphdly The number of homes is expected to
double in the next 20 years. One councillor has said the drahnage and
infrastructure needs to be `ddressed before any more homes are btilt
there. Do you agree with th`t Councillor? I think that is true of
anywhere in the country. Thd way we have built hitherto is changing and
we will develop in very different ways in the future in terms of
sustainable drainage. A verx different way of building, very much
more green and open way than we do at the moment. What is the council
going to do, simply, in a sdntence, so that people watching tonhght who
are screaming at the television can have their fears allayed? Whenever
flooding takes place, we will always investigate, and we will investigate
what happened in terms of the particular event in Gainsborough,
and publish the recommendathons of what we find, and if there `re
actions to be taken, we will carry them out. Good to talk to you. Thank
you. We want to hear from you
on this story. should be able to cope with summer
storms like we saw yesterdax? A great loss ` the debate over
the proposed demolition of one Parents know that using
a dummy or bottle can somethmes to decay is caused by sugarx
drinks, while dummies can affect speech. Now, help teams are advising
parents to stop using them once their child reaches 12 months old.
Mums and dads with little ones will Mums and dads with little ones will
know they love putting things into their mouths. But at this
parents are being encouraged to parents are being encouraged to
think carefully about what they give think carefully about what they give
to their children. We do sed children drinking juice frol a
bottle, which is really bad from their teeth. Also, the use of a
dummy as well, the dummy should really be gone by the age of one.
Jennifer has four children, and has had trouble getting hurt oldest to
giving up the dummies. We g`ve him a dummy when he was first born,
because it could not sleep. He only has it now when he goes to bed, not
during the day. But my other children, we struggled to gdt the
dummies at them. But while parents and carers know that bottles and
dummies can soothe their chhldren, they may not realise about the
bigger health issues, like delaying speech and causing dental problems.
The latest figures show that more than a quarter of five`year`olds
across England have experienced to decay. In the East Midlands,
including Lincolnshire, the figure is slightly higher, with more than
29%. In Yorkshire and the Htmber, it is higher still. One third of
five`year`olds here have experienced DK. There are suites available, and
they all jumped for them, don't they, nowadays? I don't agrde with
my granddaughter having a bottle with Jews in, but it is the only
thing she will have. It is the frequency which they have these
drinks. Some organisations would now like to impose a tax on fizzy
drinks, using the money raised to improve children's health. The staff
here at the centre is safe parents are listening to their advice and
dumping the dummies and bottles This is a debate you have bden

the amount of sugar children have! "If they're thirsty, give them water
or sugar`free juice, not fizzy pop!" Diane says, "It's up to pardnts to
stop buying sugary drinks "and encourage healthier options,
not the government taxing the "product. Both of my girls will
happily drink water rather than Thank you very much for those.
A man has been found dead in a ditch in Lincolnshire. The 55`year`old was
discovered close to a golf club near Spalding and last night. Police have
described the death as unexplained, and are now trying to piece together
the man's final hours. A teenager from Lincolnshird who
suffered brain damage when he was knocked off his bike has bedn told
he can continue to stay at ` rehab centre in Surrey for now. Rxan Smith
from Skegness had been living at the centre run by the children's trust,
but his funding ran out. His father said transferring Ryan before his
family home was modified wotld have been unsettling.
Direct trains from Cleethorpes, Grimsby and Scunthorpe to
Manchester could end, according to the Cleethorpes MP Martin Vhckers.
Mr Vickers says he's seen documents suggesting
the journeys would stop at Sheffield or Doncaster if changes go `head.

The president of the Hull`b`sed business Arco will chair
an independent panel that whll look at plans to expand
the city's boundaries into other parts of East Yorkshire.
Hull City Council says the city needs to expand
into areas like Hedon to improve the area's economic prospects.
People in the East Riding who live near Hull will get a vote on
whether they want to join the city or stay in a separate area.
The leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council wants things
Actually, this is a completd waste of time and effort on behalf of the
City Council. The public and welcome it, and we need to prove th`t beyond
doubt. It has proven to be the case with Siemens investment. If you look
at statistics, it is no different to many other cities throughout the
country. It is frankly a non`argument. Joining me in the
studio is the Deputy Leader of Hull City Council, Darren Hale. Good
evening. And much will this enquiry costs? At ?235,000, which p`id from
by the Council's kilowatts L dividend, its own in`house company,
so there is no taxpayer mondy involved. Is whole macro behng held
back by the current boundarhes, which don't take in the leafy,
wealthier suburbs? This is the reason for the enquiry. We share the
view that that might be the case. The centre for cities nationally has
published some evidence in the future the city 's world nedd to be
bigger to compete with areas like London, which are becoming like
monsters. Don't you know thd answer before you can start? You c`n't wait
to get your hands on places like Willoughby and Kirk Ella. Your Mac
are the reason for the independent commission, with what most people
recognise our independent pdople, is to look at this issue and sde
whether there is a case. Thdy will consider the evidence. If there is
no case, they will tell us that What about my comment about you not
being able to wait to keep the hands of these areas? And not surd that's
the case. That is why we have an independent commission to look at
the facts. You know the answer, don't you? This is what the body
will do, to see whether there is the case to take that the next level.
You can have all the and thhnk tanks in the world, but east riding a not
interested. You heard what the council leader said that, and we
have had messages from people. I heard what the leader said, yes But
people were writing in about this. I think the council leader possibly
has a vested interest. But H am talking about real people who wrote
in. They are not interested will stop as I say, there are a lot of
people in the East Riding, one e`mail to night said that there was
a strong case for extended boundaries. I think if we h`ve an
independent enquiry to look at the Kays and see if that is proven, and
to give us the evidence, cldarly, the sense of the cities are saying
that cities are being held back If you go to York, eight miles outside,
that is the city boundary. What you say to these riding person watching
now he doesn't want to be p`rt of Hull, a snob if you like, what is in
it for this person to be part of Hull? If you're in a band D
property, you would be paying hundreds of pounds less livhng in
Hull than in the East Riding. White so the answer is more counchl tax? I
think it would potentially tnleash economic development in this area.
We have had a good year with Siemens and City of Culture, but we could
unleash extra business and profit for this area. Lets see what the
people think. Thank you for coming in. If you have a view on this,
particularly if you live in the East riding or whole, the screen. `` the
contact details are on the screen. Thank you for watching. Still I
tonight: The Queen's Commonwealth Baton is
on its way to East Yorkshird and Northern Lincolnshire
as it heads to Scotland. And following the herring `
the unusual celebration Here is tonight's picture. Ht is
Bigby. Then he very much for that, Jimmy. Another picture to lhke at
about the same time. How yot? No schema less clout, there. A
correspondent says, why did Peter Leavey not do the ten K? Shd said,
he does not look fit enough to do ten feet, which just about sums it
up! I can't breathe, can I? A lot of people would prefer I didn't! Let's
look at the next 24 hours. Good news, settled weather on thd way.
Tomorrow will be one with some sunshine, is still some instability
out there, and a big thunderstorm currently in the Beverley area which
will move out towards the E`st Yorkshire coast, but this is what we
like to see. High pressure on Wednesday, and it should re`lly be
with us for the next few daxs, perhaps a few showers late on
Friday, but as we head into next week, high`pressure should lore or
less be with us, so I think a spell of settled weather is on thd way.
You can see thunderstorm is pushing up from the south`west, much more
scattered than they were yesterday. One across the south bank of the
Humber, however, goes through Beverley. They will continud to go
north`eastward, and all parts become dry, with clear spells overnight.
Lowest temperatures coming hn at about 11 or 12 Celsius. The sun will
rise in the morning at 4:31 a.m . The next high water time is in
Bridlington at 3:41am in thdir word. Wednesday looks set to be a lovely
day. Plenty of sunshine first thing, the chance of an isolate it light
shower in the West, but verx much the exception to the rule. @bout all
parts of the region will be dry and bright, partly cloudy skies and
spells of sunshine. A moder`te south`west Brazil first, falling
like later, and we are lookhng at a very pleasant temperature, 20 or 21
degrees in Hull and Lincoln. That is 68 Fahrenheit. Beautiful on
Thursday, fine and one, lots of sunshine around. Cloudy latdr, but
mostly it should stay dry into the weekend. A little bit cooler by
then, with a bit more in thd way of cloud.
A lady of impeccable taste. That has gone to your head! See you tomorrow.
The demolition of a Victori`n building in Hull has been ddscribed
as a great loss to the city if it goes ahead.
Wellington House is due to be knocked down amid fears it could
collapse because of structural damage, but that will mean one of
the few remaining buildings designed by the city's most celebratdd
Behind this scaffolding, thd broken windows, the warnings and the
general state of disrepair. The Wellington Hotel Normal, Told Is
Believed To Be one of the chty's most important buildings, bdcause of
the architect who designed ht. Hull born Cuthbert Broderick found his
fame in his designs of the Leeds Town Hall and the grand Hotdl in
Scarborough. His origins were in Hull, and it is where he st`yed
throughout his architectural career. Is too great buildings, Leeds Town
Hall and the grand hotel, stand as the most well`known among Vhctorian
architect. What his two findst in Hull gone. The Royal institttion was
destroyed in the war, and the Town Hall was replaced by the Guhldhall.
Some of the remains of the old town Hall can be found here need to the
children's playground in Pe`rson Park. This almost oriental looking
down would have formed part of the roof, but other than this, there is
very little that remains of Brodrick's more grand work within
Hull itself. Because of concern over structural safety, the Wellhngton is
next in line to go. We did want to keep the whole facade, and take the
rear out. The facade will effectively come down and crumble,
however. It is not in a gre`t condition, and we can't takd it down
slowly. Has real structural issues that won't allow that, so instead,
we have done the full digit`l copy and we will be building new
duplicate of the existing btilding. If somebody in the council said
stop, let's think about agahn, that would be the ideal, and it hs
something that is never too late, while the building is still
standing. English Heritage say they h`ve had
to reluctantly agree with the council's stance on this, so it
looks like another piece of Brodrick history will be lost, beaten by
time. Tomorrow morning,
the Queen's Baton Relay will arrive in East Yorkshire and
North East Lincolnshire on hts way to the opening of the Commonwealth
Games next month in Glasgow. Five people have been chosen
as "baton bearers" in Hull. They were nominated for
their involvement in communhty and work in sport throughout thd city.
Tolu Adeoye reports. The Queen's Baton has been
on the move since October last year, containing
a sealed message from Her M`jesty. Tomorrow,
it reaches Hull on its journey to People get so much enjoyment
out of it. Patrick Revel will be the fhrst to
carry it in the city. He was chosen for his voluntary work getthng
people, involved in sport. It was lhke,
"What? Me? No! It can't be." I was really, really, reallx
impressed that I had been chosen. Worried about doing something silly,
falling over with it! But I'll get through it,
I'm sure I will. 14`year`old Siobhan Eyre is
the youngest to be picked. It was a shock for her
and her family. When we saw it on the website,
we were like, "Oh!" We were very happy.
I've helped around my youth club. They're redecorating it, so I'm just
helping them paint the walls and I kind of look after the kids
a couple of years younger than me. The baton arrives in Hull
tomorrow morning at The Deep. From there, it will visit shx
schools from across East Yorkshire and North East Lincolnshire before
returning to Hull, where from 4 45, it will be shown off at
a public event in the city centre. Julie Williams will carry
the baton to the top of The Deep. Her fans aren't just the babies
in this group. She's been chosen for her work
developing trampolining in Hull I'm taking it up to the pinnacle
of The Deep. It's quite exciting,
because I've been to The Dedp a number of times, but I've don t
think I've ever been up there. I can't remember being up there
anyway. Andy Train will be the baton
bearer at the evening event. He's been picked for his work
for the lesbian, gay, bisextal I was always one of those khds
at school that never got picked for the team, and I think this is
what it's about, and it's jtst so wonderful to be actually selected
to be part of the team, to be given Organisers hope
the relay will replicate sole of the success of the Olympic torch, which
travelled through our area hn 2 12. The journey ends in Glasgow
on the 23rd of July, when the Queen will read the message that's being
carried by community and sporting heroes from across the world,
including those from here in Hull. Planes from RAF Waddington have
been rehearsing ahead of thdir Spectators waited to catch
a glimpse of the practise sdssion near the A15 between Sleaford
and Lincoln at lunch time. The procession of aircrafts and jets
will take part in the festivities you have got to be proud of them,
haven't you? The fact that they can do that with
such precision, yes. Unbelidvable, yes. It takes a lot of skill to fly
like that! The century hang`r will be like Buckingham Palace. @ good
day for it as well. A full scale knitted boat
and hundreds of fish, many made by people in Hull, are at
the centre of a unique celebration Follow The Herring is a touring
exhibition visiting coastal communities, which started hn
Scotland, and is currently hn Hull. 600 people and school
children have knitted items. Jill Archbold has been to sde
the exhibition before it opdns. In each to East Coast area time
history, knitted together. @nd it is all a bit more elaborate th`n a
fisherman's Tanzeem. Inspirdd by the work of the Herring Girls, this
exhibition is the hard work of millions of knitters, many of them
from Hull. People normally knit clothes, baby clothes, that sort of
thing, but to actually be p`rt of something that is unique, they won't
ever have done anything likd that before. I love the enthusiasm.
Follow The Herring was trained at two years ago, but it is not just
about knitting. Hull Truck will host performances of the fishing inspired
play Get Up And Tie Your Fingers. It means people can get involvdd in
something which is part of the unique national tour, bringhng
together the theatre, knitthng, crafts and community singing and
storytelling, and bringing them all together in a way that celebrates
our fishing heritage. Just like the Herring Girls, this exhibithon
started in Scotland and madd its way down the East Coast. In Hull, 6 0
people lent their handiwork knitting these herring who will join the
shoulder tour the rest of the country. The free exhibition on the
set of their cityopens tomorrow and just in case you forget, thdre have
been young bombing of the chty's landmarks.
Let's get a recap of the national and regional headlines.
The energy regulator asks the big six energy firms while a he`ven drop
their prices. Lincolnshire County Council say they
will investigate the flash floods into the drains were overwhdlmed by
exceptional rainfall. Tomorrow, the weather: Dry `nd fine.
Some spells in the afternoon. Feeling very warm, temperattres
getting up to 2140 is in thd afternoon.
Your response on the flooding: Tiff says if you have ridiculously large
amount of rainfall short tile, this means devastating effect of the
drains were properly it shotld clear up the straight time. I think the
council needs to clear out the drains more often.
Dave says, early our solar system can no longer cope with the changes
to our rainfall. Audrey has e`mailed, saying the problel is the
increasing building and hard standing roads. Planners insisting
that the drains are increasdd to take up the extra run`off. We were
also to be about boundary changes. Kristin Cottingham said no, no, no.
We want to stay in the East Riding. Get these jokers in Hull City
Council away from our area. And the e`mail says, I live in Kirk
Ella, and I would not wish that the boundaries the change. I wotld have
concerns about my house price coming down. I think that the Hull City
Council are wanting us becatse they know we pay our council tax.
We have had a few people in favour, saying what is an inane? If it means
saving money, put me down for some. Have a nice evening. Thank xou for
watching. I will be back later. Goodbye.
