a twin brother, Joseph, who died You think the possibilities,
what could they have been, When we watched him buried,
you are not just burying yotr baby, you're burying your hopes
and dreams, as well. Sadly, the Lewaks' experience
is more common than you'd think The UK has one
of the worst stillbirth ratds in the developed world, with around 11
babies being born dead everx day. One in every 200 birth ends
in a stillbirth, making it luch And around a third are still

in the Department of Health that stillbirth is a real problel and
there has been more of a push in recent guidance about checkhng to
make sure the baby is growing well. I certainly think more could be
done, and should be done, In Scunthorpe, doctors are reviewing
how they monitor expectant lothers after the numbers
of stillbirths recently increased. They're going to be scrutinhsing

we've got an abnormality in that flow, then we will be instituting

caused their baby to die. While they would welcome more research, they
say it's a sensitive area When they said they could do an
autopsy on our son but therd was a nine out of ten chance they wouldn't
find anything, I was thinking, "What's the point
in you doing this to our son?" But without more investment
and research, it's likely m`ny more families will face the tragddy that
the Lewaks have experienced. An 18`month`old boy has been
treated in hospital after being bitten by a
Rottweiler in East Yorkshird.The toddler and his mum were walking in

Trade Unions representing Albulance workers in Hull and East Yorkshire
have warned that patients whll be put in danger because under
qualified staff are being forced to work together. UNISON says ht's
unhappy that Emergency Care Assistants won't always be paired
with paramedics.The Yorkshire Ambulance Service has denied that
patient safety will be compromised by the staff changes. Crisphn Rolfe
has been following this story. Why are the Unions unhappy with these
Well, Unison, the union representing ambulance staff here, says this is
precisely the situation that they were assured wouldn't come to pass.
Emergency care assistants p`ired on ambulances not with a qu`lified
paramedic, but with each other ` something the union claims hs
unacceptable, because ECAs `re only trained to carry out first `id, and
basic life support, as part of their role in driving an ambulance.
Now Unison says it'll ballot staff in Yorkshire over industrial action,
unless the policy of sending out these cheaper
and less medically`trained staff on their own is withdrawn.
How has the Yorkshire Ambulance Service reacted
Well, the Yorkshire Ambulance Service say
their focus is on patient s`fety, and they insist they're

Unison's Ray Grey will be lhve on our late bulletin tonight at 10 30.
It puts them in a difficult situation where they turn up in an
emergency. The public expect them to be paramedics and they are not. The
public and not get the paraledics they expect. It is clearly down to
money, not having a fine. They say, we still have a small number of care
assistant working, and if one crew happens to be closest to a serious
incident, it makes sense for them to attend as a first responder in
addition to a clinician. Yorkshire has been one of the last pl`ces to
adopt emergency care assist`nt, but it is common to pair them whth
clinically qualified practitioners. Unions insist that to do anxthing
less potentially places staff in a difficult position and potentially
endangers lives. I will be talking to a representative of Unison later
on in our late bulletin. Sthll ahead: The widow were taking out a

The Environment Agency says it's investigating after lorry loads of
rubbish were dumped at a farm in East Yorkshire. The rubbish has been
discovered at Sandpit Farm hn Gowdall near Goole and could cost
hundreds of thousands of potnds to remove. Local people are worried
about the smell and say there is an increasing number of rats. Sarah
Bags of stinking rubbish piled high at this disused farm near Snaith.
It was dumped here 18 months ago and left to rot.
The concern is, how long will it stay here and how much of a health
hazard will it become? It is a bit of a health hazard now and we're
concerned about rats, about children playing, and it is private land so
the difficulty is East Riding haven't got control over it.
Thousands of tonnes of plastic, paper and food that was supposed to

Interviews are being held to find the person who will be in charge of
Hull's City of Culture Comp`ny. The search is also beginning for a
programme director who will choose the act. Local people can apply ``

knowledge. You have to keep people who can keep pulling back to make
sure there was a lot of comlunity activity. The journalist who
described Hull as a city in the plan says he won't apologise out an
article he wrote. Daniel Knowles was invited by the BBC to visit the city
after it won City of Culturd status and secured major investment from
the wind farm manufacturer Siemens. He said he stands by his colments.
The City of Culture is a grdat thing for Hull and I am pleased the city
has courted. It doesn't mean we were totally wrong. That picture of
relative economic decline rdmains true. That was Daniel talking on
Friday. We have had a big rdsponse on this. Some are not even broadcast

Daniel. It's not the usual advert for love,
because this is a half page spread in a loc`l
newspaper costing almost ?1,000 In it every detail of the khnd
of man Peter Wilson is, his family, taste in music,
his favourite films and actors, but only hints of the reason behind
his search for a new partner. After being together for allost 25
years, Peter lost his wife @lison, a staff nurse at Boston Pilgrim
Hospital, to cancer in April. It was diagnosed she had terminal
cancer. She was diagnosed whth one up to two years to be left 's
living. But it was an earlier conversation
that has allowed Peter to move on. She said, one either offers pass on,
the other one will definitely need a new partner straightaway. I am very
fortunate that she did let le know this. If she hadn't, I would have
felt hesitant. I am desperate for a new companion. Perhaps I shouldn't
really be doing this for who knows how long. I am very fortunate she
arrange this and told me. That is how I can justify I am happx with
what I am doing. Peter's advert has attracted
national media interest. As for his dating, he has already
had a response, but how manx is Maybe you have been in a sililar
position to Peter. What do xou make of his mission? How long is the
grieving period? If you havd a view, get in touch.

She first came to attention on X Factor two years ago,
impressing the judges from the start.
You are the one person that I, personally, I really want to mentor.

Response on the subject of the tidal surge. Somebody says, it baffles me,
the people you been affected by flooding, nobody comes forw`rd to
help. It amazes me we are qtick to be asked to put our hands on our
pockets for other countries. Somebody else says, we are `bove
Watford Gap, don't we found? Another one, buy a house on Hessle foreshore
then ask everyone else to t`ke responsibility for paying for your
flood protection, you bought it you protected. Not much sympathx there.
Max says, I was flooded in December, the house has not dried out, surely
the insurance company should do what we pay them for an ease the stress
and upset afterwards. The elergency services were fantastic. Th`nk you
for watching. Join me later. Goodbye.
