be reopening. It was a succdssful business, the owner was


contemplating retirement in the not too distant future but that was


brought early as result of the damage. And East Riding council says

East Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire saw an increasd


in the number of babies born dead. A senior doctor in Scunthorpe says


they're now reviewing Here's our health correspondent


Vicky Johnson. The Lewaks


from Beverley know only too well the Their daughter Kasha had


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


unexplained, with the babies being I think there is a growing `wareness


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


blood flow through the placdnta If we then identify that


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


woodland close to Raywell House near Cottingham on Tuesday. Humbdrside


police say the dog ` which was one of two being walked by an elderly


couple allegedly lunged at him, cutting his head. They're asking the


owners to come forward. The charity Corner House saxs the

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


newspaper advert to find hilself a new partner.

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

up to half ?1 million. It is a very protracted legal situation. We are


expecting news and in the ndxt few weeks.

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 ``


apply to be on the board. You do need local people there with good


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.

18`year`old Ella Henderson from tetany was on the X factor two years


ago. She has released her ddbut single which she has written


herself, and it has gone straight to number one.


The moment Ella Henderson hdard she was number one in the UK ch`rts


It doesn't feel real and I need to take in this moment, or somdthing.


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.


It's amazing if you compare and contrast the fortunes.

Within the first hour of medting each other, we ended at writing the

it was going to be my first single.

do have people are quite falous and have had a musical influencd. There


are more opportunities further down south. I think linkage is gdtting


there slowly. It is good th`t someone from such a small town to


say well. More than 134,000 copies of this


single sold in the last week. The next step for Ella is hdr album,

months after the tidal surgd, some businesses have not recoverdd.


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.
