And don't forget the detaildd forecast for next weekend, join me


for the details. Inspectors say children in


North East Lincolnshire are being put at a disadvantage because their


local council is not giving enough Ofsted, the government's schools


watchdog, says North East Lincolnshire Council gives `ttention


to the weakest schools while slightly better schools are


not given appropriate attention Ofsted warns that schools in


North East Lincolnshire are only improving marginally, saying parents


and children deserve better. In response, the council,


which is based in Grimsby, says most schools in its area are academies


and are not under its control. They do say every child desdrves


a good education and that most Academy schools in North East


Lincolnshire. These were among seven inspected earlier than planned by


Ofsted Ahmed concerns about the level of support. We inspected the


number of schools because your chances of sending a child to the


good outstanding skill are luch lower than in other parts of


Yorkshire. All secondary schools and many remedies in the north`dast are


run as academies but how do the work and why are they different? Before


they were introduced, money would pass from the Department of


education to local councils who pass it on to schools and oversed how


they are run. What academies the money goes straight from central


government to the skill itsdlf effectively pushing aside dhrect


involvement from local authorities, and they can use money from business


and charities. In extreme circumstances they can go dhrectly


to the Secretary of State and say they are being let down by `cademy


sponsors. The oasis Academy in Grimsby was one of those inspected


and phones to require improvement. The local authority is stuck between


a rock and a hard place bec`use only one hand have a duty to makd sure


skills improve but on the other hand and a hard place because on the one


hand we have a duty to make sure skills improve but on the other hand


no legal power to enforce them to do that. You would hope all schools


want to improve and I cannot imagine there's a school in the country that


does not want to get better at what it does. As long as he is s`fe and


learning loads. I can only go by the progress my daughter is makhng and I


am happy at that. Despite sdveral requests, the council refusdd to


make anybody available for hnterview today but released a statemdnt. It


pointed out 76% of primary schools were judged as good in the `rea but


technology is a particular problem with just 33% meeting the s`me


level. It went on to say schools facing challenges face a higher


level of support but academhes are different because responsibhlity


lies with the Department of education. The government h`s said


tonight the quality of educ`tion in Lincolnshire has been not good


enough for too long. I spoke to Jonathan Simons from


the Think Tank Policy Exchange and started by asking him if a local


authority can wash their hands of a They absolutely cannot and hn fact


the opposite. They have a responsibility to ensure all


children in the area are receiving a higher level of education. Hf a


school is not under local atthority control our Ofsted wrong to point


the finger? They are right because if they are not doing their job


properly and advocating for all children and providing high`quality


services and formerly raising concerns, Ofsted is right to


criticise them. It is interdsting because the local authority does not


have the role of bass but are still expected to monitor the Academy


Some would say that is not puite fair. It is not the boss but it has


the responsibility. It has ` responsibility to advocate on behalf


of those children. Is it fe`r the council gets accused of


underachieving when they ard not in overall responsibility? It has that


they are not doing the things we ought to be doing, providing


high`quality services and advocating for high standards and raishng


concerns before it gets to the stage of a full inspection, it saxs. The


academies here are equally `t fault because F Ofsted says they `re


underperforming they have a responsibility to make that well, so


the system works but we havd an evolving role. Have academids


appeared to quickly? I do not think they have and are responding to pay


rental demand. `` pay rental `` parental.


We want to hear from you on this story, do you think it's


right that the council should monitor academies even though they

People who live in parts of Hull are likely to have to pay


Parking permit charges could more than triple


It would bring Hull into line with places including Scunthorpe


and Grimsby, and the council says it will help reduce financi`l


But some residents say they can't afford the increase.


Match speed graphic, states never designed for cars and city centre


parking. Right now these permits are either free or cost ?7 50 btt the


city council is now ready to raise charges. Something pensioner Eric


Hendry says he will struggld to afford. It'll be hard to pax that


every year. We're not even guaranteed our parking. The council


insists it is currently subsidising residential parking zones. How much


does it cost to run a parking zone? Once it is set up, something like


this cost ?9,000 to administer in terms of maintenance and parking


enforcement but the council only brings an end, of ?5,000 whhch means


it is losing ?4000 in this zone alone. Well residents put up with


paying more? If you don't gdt a permit you cannot park in the street


where you live. ?33 works ott at less than a pound a week so it is


not a lot. I would pay it, what can I do? I do not know about v`lue for


money. But that is the test for Eric Pickles who has spoken out `gainst


unfair town parking rules and said increases can only cover costs and


not make a profit. An annual parking permit and Scunthorpe will cost ?50


and in Grimsby it is ?80 whhle in Skegness it will set you back ? 20.


Tonight Hull City Council s`ys no decisions have been made but the


actual reviewing all happen at a time when they still need to find


savings. At the moment, 10,000 permits have been issued and of


those, most are roamed the KC Stadium to cope with match days for


rugby and football crowds. Tp until now many homes have not had to pay


for a permit, however the chty council has never guaranteed that


and it has not been reviewed since 2008. It would make things lore


equitable. I have been speaking to a member of the local governmdnt


information unit, an organisation supported by councils, and `sked him


whether he thought increases of more than 300% is acceptable. I think it


is. It looks like a big increase as a percentage but if you consider the


total figure lower than othdr places places and the Legion. Many will


think it is not fair to be charged to park outside your own hole. The


council has a responsibilitx to manage places and such a wax they


meet the needs of all residdnts keeping traffic moving and reducing


pollution and congestion. Btt you are paying to park and does not even


guarantee you a spot. Many will say the council is acting as a cash


cow? Only one in five counchls report making any form of strplus on


parking, and you have to relember councils cannot make money `nd do


not have shareholders. Any hncome they bring and is spent on other


activities such as looking `fter vulnerable children, protecting the


elderly. 11, not polluted and the local


economy being served. When xou try to make those decisions, sole people


will be unhappy. In Skegness, ? 20 is the figure. That is on a par with


London and does not even gu`rantee you a spot. What is important is


that these decisions are made by democratically elected and


accountable local bodies. and be able to maintain the fitness


levels, so that will mean they are likely to be sacked.

action against 40 people. They should not be subjected to `buse or


intimidation from a small group of freeloaders simply here in ten on


not paying for anything. Is it a big issue or are you overreacting? Last


year we had a permanent enc`mpment here all summer. We could not find

births by her first baby was born after an emergency Caesarean, and


this time around she has had a natural delivery. I feel like I can


take on the task but before it was my first baby and it was like a new


experience. She had her babx in Scunthorpe which has reduced the


Caesarean rate to around 16$, the second lowest in the countrx. They


have done this by offering women one`to`one support before and during


the Labour. When they comment, we try to keep them as mobile `s


possible, so it is about ushng the birth pool and we also have a coach,


but it is about mobilising them as much as possible. Teamwork has also


proved crucial. The staff work together to recognise the ilportance


of encouraging normal delivdries and reducing intervention. This


consultant is based in Hull and he admits his department could be doing


more. What we should be doing is having a proper discussion with the


ladies right at the very beginning, starting when the goal home after


Caesareans. A shortage of mhdwives is happening some efforts. To be


able to give good care, that entails one`to`one care, providing good


psychological and emotional support. You have to have enough to provide


that model. While some babids will always have to be delivered


surgically, good teamwork could help keep Caesarean sections to `


minimum. New figures show ?300,000 h`s been

and I was told that the backlog of repairs just that Lincoln C`thedral


is ?16.5 million. The honourable gentleman has done well to get money


but Lincoln Cathedral could eat up all the money. What more dods he


think we could do. In response the government says that


there are several pots of money which the Church of England


can use to repair buildings, but is happy to hear any suggestions


for finding extra funds. Thanks for contacting us about plans

not enjoy the Christmas Market. It's crowded, it's expensivd and


what you get is just not worth it." John from Lincoln says, "I `void

too expensive and too short. Many Lincoln people are of `

Another says why does the council not charge people for walking down


the road as it is wailing at the pavements? Typical council loney


grabbing. The way I see yet, the houses were here before the stadium
