Good evening.

0:00:070:00:08

It's claimed reducing the speed limit in the centre of Hull to 0

0:00:080:00:11

miles an hour could dramatically decrease the number of accidents.

0:00:110:00:14

The council is considering a reduced speed zone,

0:00:140:00:17

similar to those in other chties including York and Edinburgh.

0:00:170:00:21

But there are worries that laking drivers go slower could also be

0:00:210:00:24

distracting, as Sarah Walton reports.

0:00:240:00:30

This crash left a man seriously injured and shut one

0:00:300:00:32

of Hull's main roads overnight.

0:00:320:00:34

It's one of a number of crashes in the city centre in recent years,

0:00:340:00:37

and the council hopes to de`l with that by reducing the speed limit.

0:00:370:00:43

Some of the statistics that have been produced where the 20 lile

0:00:430:00:46

an hour limits have been introduced elsewhere indicates

0:00:460:00:49

a significant reduction in injuries and fatalities.

0:00:490:00:52

For example, the Transport and Road Rese`rch

0:00:520:00:55

Laboratory analysis has indhcated a reduction in child pedestrian

0:00:550:00:58

fatalities of something likd 70 .

0:00:580:01:03

40 other cities in the UK have or are introducing 20

0:01:030:01:06

mile per hour zones.

0:01:060:01:08

Here in Hull, the buses alrdady stick to that lower limit.

0:01:080:01:13

It is a safety limit, yes.

0:01:130:01:14

There are a lot of pedestri`ns and more and more we're finding

0:01:140:01:17

pedestrians walking out in the street with mobile phones and other

0:01:170:01:20

devices, not looking where they re going, so it's even more important

0:01:200:01:23

that we stick to that sort of speed and of course that our

0:01:230:01:26

drivers keep a careful look`out

0:01:260:01:28

But for those in cars and lorries, there are worries it could `ctually

0:01:280:01:31

make things worse.

0:01:310:01:34

What drivers are doing alre`dy, they're selecting appropriate speeds

0:01:340:01:37

which are very often below 20.

0:01:370:01:40

The moment you put a sign up saying "20", it almost implies that 20 s

0:01:400:01:43

OK, and so we have found instances where the actual average spdeds are

0:01:430:01:46

going up in 20 zones.

0:01:470:01:51

And those that walk and those that drive the streets

0:01:510:01:54

of Hull are divided on the hssue.

0:01:540:01:56

We can't do any more, anywax, because of traffic congestion.

0:01:560:02:00

I think it's a good idea, cos some of them do go quitd fast.

0:02:000:02:03

We've got exactly the same in Hornsea.

0:02:030:02:05

Keeps the speed down.

0:02:050:02:07

Does it stop them speeding ` no

0:02:070:02:09

Enforce it.

0:02:090:02:11

That's the key thing.

0:02:110:02:12

The council will consider the plans later this year.

0:02:120:02:14

If approved, the new speed limit could be put in place by 2006.

0:02:140:02:21

It's claimed Lincolnshire would benefit from closer ties with

0:02:210:02:23

Commonwealth countries such as Canada and Australia.

0:02:230:02:25

That's according to Lincoln's MP, Karl McCartney, who says Brhtain

0:02:250:02:29

has become too reliant on economic links with Europe.

0:02:290:02:32

He was responding to a report, which showed people in Lincoln's

0:02:320:02:35

twin town of Neustadt in Germany, were far more positive about being

0:02:350:02:37

part of the European Union.

0:02:370:02:42

Many in Whitehall and many in government have been

0:02:420:02:45

a little bit too pro`Europe`n for the past 20`25 years

0:02:450:02:48

and even longer, and have ttrned their backs on the Commonwe`lth

0:02:480:02:51

and others, and I think it's to the detriment of our countrx.

0:02:510:02:55

So jobs, yes, there's important work to bd done

0:02:550:02:58

and trade to be done with Etrope, but we shouldn't turn our b`ck

0:02:580:03:01

on the rest of the world either

0:03:010:03:04

Interviews are being held this week to find the person who'll bd

0:03:040:03:07

in charge of Hull's City of Culture company.

0:03:070:03:09

Seven months since winning the title of TK City

0:03:090:03:11

of Culture 2017, interviews for a chairperson are taking place.

0:03:110:03:14

The search is also beginning for a programme director,

0:03:140:03:16

who'll choose all of the acts.

0:03:160:03:17

People can also apply this week to be on the company's board.

0:03:170:03:25

The organisers of the Lincolnshire Show say

0:03:250:03:27

the atmosphere is building `s they make their final preparations.

0:03:270:03:29

The showground on the edge of Lincoln will attract thotsands

0:03:290:03:32

of visitors this Wednesday and Thursday.

0:03:320:03:36

As well as the livestock displays, there are 600 trade stands this

0:03:360:03:39

year.

0:03:390:03:40

The event is in its 130th ydar.

0:03:400:03:45

Fans of the Lincolnshire's singer Ella Henderson will find out shortly

0:03:450:03:48

if she is number one in the pop charts.

0:03:480:03:50

Ella, who's 18 and from Tetney near Grimsby, came into the public

0:03:500:03:58

eye when she finished sixth on the ITV show X`factor two years ago

0:03:580:04:03

Her song Ghost has been selling well through the week.

0:04:030:04:07

The official number one is revealed on BBC Radio One just

0:04:070:04:09

before seven this evening.

0:04:090:04:15

More than 3,000 bikers from across the country have been

0:04:150:04:18

in Lincoln today.

0:04:180:04:19

The Lincoln Bike Fest is in its ninth year, and feattred more

0:04:190:04:21

than 30 stalls and live mushc.

0:04:210:04:23

Hundreds of motorbikes were on show, from classics to brand new lachines.

0:04:230:04:29

We had bikers here from all over the country, xou know,

0:04:290:04:33

from Merseyside...and

0:04:330:04:35

people have come on trains!

0:04:350:04:37

Bike fans have come on trains from Manchester and Birmingham to

0:04:370:04:40

get here to this event.

0:04:400:04:42

We've had stallholders coming up from London,

0:04:420:04:44

driving through the night to set their stands up, so it's a very

0:04:440:04:47

very popular event and hopefully it'll go from strength to strength.

0:04:470:04:50

The event is great.

0:04:500:04:51

It's just a shame the weather's not a bit warler.

0:04:510:04:54

If it was, we'd probably all be melting!

0:04:540:04:57

Been to this biek show before and it's a good little show.

0:04:570:05:00

Got a little bit of everythhng.

0:05:000:05:01

Nice day out.

0:05:010:05:06

Now the weather forecast with Kay Crewdson.

0:05:060:05:09

Hello there.

0:05:090:05:11

As we head through this evening any showers will fizzle out.

0:05:110:05:14

It'll be largely dry and fine, and we will have some clear skies

0:05:140:05:17

at first, but we start to gdt cloud pulling in as we head towards dawn.

0:05:170:05:20

so feeling increasingly clotdy.

0:05:210:05:21

Temperatures down to 11 or 12 degrees.

0:05:210:05:24

11 is 52 Fahrenheit.

0:05:240:05:26

Tomorrow morning, it's going to be a fairly cloudy start to thd day.

0:05:260:05:29

We hold on to an awful lot of cloud and there could be a few light

0:05:290:05:33

showers as we head through the day.

0:05:330:05:34

There will be some thinning of the clouds, some brighter spells

0:05:340:05:37

from time to time.

0:05:370:05:38

The breeze remains fairly lhght to gentle from the north east.

0:05:380:05:41

Inland highs tomorrow, around 18 degrees.

0:05:410:05:42

It will feel quite warm.

0:05:420:05:43

Into Tuesday and Wednesday, and for Thursday, high pressure continues to

0:05:430:05:48

dominate, so much of the sale.

0:05:480:05:50

A lot of cloud, still feeling warm, highs of 21 degrees.

0:05:500:05:57

That's all for now. We're b`ck after

0:05:570:05:59

That's all for now. We're b`ck after the late news. Goodbye.
