Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:00.:00:00.

Convictions for animal cruelty in East Yorkshire are amongst

:00:00.:00:08.

I have seen an increase in the number of files.

:00:09.:00:43.

The Environment Secretary tdlls farmers that the Government is

:00:44.:00:45.

I'm live at the Lincolnshird show where farmers have been givhng their

:00:46.:00:49.

People are beginning to go home after a glorious first day of the

:00:50.:01:06.

Lincolnshire show. Join me for that detailed forecast live in Lhncoln.

:01:07.:01:13.

Hello. East Yorkshire has one of the highest number of convictions

:01:14.:01:16.

74 people were convicted in the county last year `

:01:17.:01:24.

That's above places like Greater Manchester.

:01:25.:01:28.

There are now calls for tougher punishments to deter abusers.

:01:29.:01:33.

Kate Sweeting's report contains images from the st`rt

:01:34.:01:35.

This footage shows the shocking abuse of a puppy in Withernsea.

:01:36.:01:46.

The dog had done something hnside the house that he did not lhke.

:01:47.:01:49.

He thought the best way to teach the dog a lesson

:01:50.:01:51.

The animal does not underst`nd why it is being hit.

:01:52.:01:55.

The dog was terrified, you can clearly see on

:01:56.:01:58.

the video footage, cowering away and trying to hide from the ass`ilant.

:01:59.:02:01.

Bonnie has now recovered and been rehomed but her experience

:02:02.:02:03.

Certain noises will make her wary and she will try and jump

:02:04.:02:07.

She is nervous about a lot of things.

:02:08.:02:11.

At this rescue centre in Hull there is a constant stream of dogs being

:02:12.:02:14.

In my particular area I havd seen an increase in the number

:02:15.:02:21.

of case files I'm putting forward for prosecution where peopld have

:02:22.:02:24.

done something deliberately violent towards an animal.

:02:25.:02:26.

That might be because we, as inspectors, have

:02:27.:02:29.

74 people were convicted in East Yorkshire last year. In

:02:30.:02:48.

Lincolnshire, the figure was lower. The man who attacked Bonnie served 4

:02:49.:02:54.

weeks of a 16 week prison sdntence and was banned

:02:55.:02:58.

from keeping animals for life. Her new owners don't

:02:59.:03:00.

think it was enough. If it was longer sentences, it would

:03:01.:03:11.

be more of a deterrent, and people would think twice.

:03:12.:03:14.

But this legal expert says animal cruelty offences

:03:15.:03:16.

The range of punishments ard immediate imprisonment, which is a

:03:17.:03:28.

maximum of six months. Most cases would be dealt with at the lower

:03:29.:03:32.

level of penalties, find or conditional discharges.

:03:33.:03:41.

The RSPCA is working hard to bring animal abuses to justhce and

:03:42.:03:44.

does not ever expect to stalp out animal cruelty completely.

:03:45.:04:05.

Somebody says, the law needs a good overhaul.

:04:06.:04:11.

You can also contact us on dmail and text on this subject.

:04:12.:04:14.

What can be done to cut the number of animal cruelty offences?

:04:15.:04:41.

After the Chief Executive Ldeds new allegations about the managdment

:04:42.:04:55.

culture at a hospital trust. `` new Chief Executive leaves.

:04:56.:04:58.

The Environment Secretary h`s defended the government's spending

:04:59.:05:00.

on flood defences after criticism in a report by a group of MPs.

:05:01.:05:03.

Owen Paterson spoke to farmdrs at the Lincolnshire show a day

:05:04.:05:06.

after a select committee sahd the government should look `gain

:05:07.:05:08.

at its flooding policy to avoid a repeat of the damage causdd

:05:09.:05:11.

Our rural affairs correspondent Paul Murphy is live

:05:12.:05:14.

What was the reaction there to what the minister said?

:05:15.:05:31.

When he talks to farmers at the show, you get a sense that he is a

:05:32.:05:40.

respected figure within the farming community. He has a deep technical

:05:41.:05:44.

understanding of how farming operates. He had a challenghng task

:05:45.:05:49.

of balancing the need to protect urban centres with the need to

:05:50.:05:53.

protect the countryside. Not every farmer believes he's getting the

:05:54.:05:57.

balance right. Despite a bad day at the office

:05:58.:06:03.

yesterday, Owen Paterson was in good spirits, arriving at the

:06:04.:06:07.

Lincolnshire show this mornhng. He came out fighting against the select

:06:08.:06:10.

committee, which criticised his department's work. The report was

:06:11.:06:20.

extraordinary. It taxes for things we are already doing `` it `ttacked

:06:21.:06:26.

as for things we are alreadx doing. The select committee is concerned

:06:27.:06:29.

that government cost`cutting quickly to a repeat of last winter's

:06:30.:06:33.

devastating floods. We are saying we should remove this artifici`l

:06:34.:06:40.

division between capital funding and maintenance funding and havd one

:06:41.:06:47.

single budget. The minister offered assurances about flood defences

:06:48.:06:52.

This farmer was not convincdd. I think we are at serious risk. As

:06:53.:07:05.

custodians of Lincolnshire, I don't want to be a scaremonger, btt I am

:07:06.:07:10.

scared. The media were invited by the National Farmer's Union to film

:07:11.:07:13.

a meeting where the minister would take questions from local f`rmers,

:07:14.:07:19.

but his department prevented us from attending. I wanted to know why The

:07:20.:07:25.

BBC was invited to the question and answer session to film it, but we

:07:26.:07:32.

were stopped. I understood ht was a private meeting. I did not know you

:07:33.:07:38.

were invited. I have been btsy talking to stand around the show. I

:07:39.:07:45.

am giving you a free intervhew now. I'm happy to talk to the BBC any

:07:46.:07:49.

time. It is perhaps a measure of how sensitive politics have become.

:07:50.:07:55.

Despite the buoyant mood, this community will continue to have

:07:56.:07:59.

concerns about flooding and whether enough is being done to prevent it.

:08:00.:08:05.

I think one of the key mess`ge is the minister wants to send to

:08:06.:08:09.

farmers today was that they have a crucial role in being able to defend

:08:10.:08:15.

their own communities. Owen Paterson said they have the expertisd when it

:08:16.:08:23.

comes to drainage systems and see defences. There is a scheme in the

:08:24.:08:27.

wash were farmers are working together with sea defences. He also

:08:28.:08:40.

said his department does not have never`ending pockets, and there

:08:41.:08:45.

will, time when authorities and farmers may have to fund defences.

:08:46.:08:57.

Thank you very much. We will be back at the show later. We have had a lot

:08:58.:09:08.

of e`mails about the flooding after last night.

:09:09.:09:46.

a murder investigation after the body of a 29`year`old woman was

:09:47.:10:11.

found at a house in the city. Emergency services were called

:10:12.:10:22.

A salesman who'd been accusdd of assaulting a man

:10:23.:10:28.

in a Lincolnshire village h`s been charged with manslaughter.

:10:29.:10:30.

Jareth Wadner from South Solercotes near Louth appeared at

:10:31.:10:32.

The 25`year`old had previously been charged with GBH, but the vhctim,

:10:33.:10:36.

Typhoons from RAF Conningsby's 3 Fighter

:10:37.:10:38.

Squadron have been used to hntercept Russian aircraft as part of a NATO

:10:39.:10:42.

Four aircraft and one hundred personnel ldft

:10:43.:10:44.

Yesterday the British jets intercepted and escorted fotr

:10:45.:10:47.

The debts facing Lincolnshire's hospitals are among the highest

:10:48.:10:50.

Figures from the Labour Party suggest the United Lincolnshire

:10:51.:10:53.

Hospitals Trust has a deficht of nearly ?26 million.

:10:54.:10:55.

A five`year plan's being developed to help the Trust meet

:10:56.:10:58.

Macho`management, bullying and dysfunctional `re just

:10:59.:11:00.

some of the words used todax to describe the senior team at the Hull

:11:01.:11:03.

The issue was raised during a council meeting this afternoon.

:11:04.:11:07.

The trust's former chief exdcutive, Phil Morley, left in April just

:11:08.:11:11.

before a highly critical report was published by the health watchdog,

:11:12.:11:16.

Our health correspondent, Vhcky Johnson reports from Beverldy.

:11:17.:11:24.

Shortly after Phil Morley rdsigned, the health watchdog publishdd its

:11:25.:11:33.

highly critical report into the Hull and East Yorkshire hospitals trust.

:11:34.:11:36.

The report is still causing ripples, especially regarding

:11:37.:11:40.

allegations of bullying and harassment. Embers of East Riding

:11:41.:11:45.

Council discussed the report this afternoon, and admitted perhaps they

:11:46.:11:49.

had not been scrutinising the trust was enough. Maybe we haven't

:11:50.:11:53.

demanded information we could have had in the past. There has `lways

:11:54.:11:57.

been a positive front put on by the trust. There are many times when

:11:58.:12:05.

they would not come to meethngs and engage. Also discussed was the high

:12:06.:12:08.

turnover of staff, not just managers but doctors as well. We havd heard

:12:09.:12:15.

that six out of ten of the senior doctors have handed in their

:12:16.:12:18.

resignations. Why isn't that something to be worried abott?

:12:19.:12:23.

Councillor Mike Whitehead pointed out that the atmosphere at the trust

:12:24.:12:29.

was affecting recruitment. H think most doctors would say if they saw

:12:30.:12:31.

that their senior colleagues were happy in their work and the

:12:32.:12:35.

organisation was something they wanted to work in. The interim chief

:12:36.:12:40.

executive is due to meet melbers of the council tomorrow. Peopld hope

:12:41.:12:48.

they will be able to question him directly about what has been going

:12:49.:12:50.

on. From shearing to

:12:51.:12:53.

the show`ring.Thousands I have really enjoyed coming.

:12:54.:13:17.

Fantastic weather, huge crowds, absolutely marvellous. Tomorrow

:13:18.:13:29.

night, we are here at 7:30 p.m. Sunset at Brough Haven by John

:13:30.:13:34.

Dewing. Another photo tomorrow. The

:13:35.:13:49.

Lincolnshire show, Paul does not want to mix with everybody dlse he

:13:50.:13:52.

wants to They may be a bit of drizzld in

:13:53.:14:47.

places. Temperatures in the range of 11, 13. Thursday looks set to be

:14:48.:14:56.

cloudy. The drizzle should die away and it quickly becomes dry. There

:14:57.:15:01.

will be some sunshine. I am not sure we will get the clear skies we have

:15:02.:15:04.

had today but it is an improving picture. Temperatures a shade below

:15:05.:15:11.

where we have been today. Wd are looking at 17 or 18. The outlook is

:15:12.:15:24.

very promising. Sex, variable amounts of clout. There will be

:15:25.:15:29.

sunshine at times. It will feel very pleasant. `` Sun, variable `mounts

:15:30.:15:48.

of clout. You did not answer the question

:15:49.:15:51.

whether you work or in the cameraman. I think the answdr is

:15:52.:16:01.

yes. Do you like my shade? My wife said I

:16:02.:16:08.

do not do cool. See you tomorrow.

:16:09.:16:12.

There are claims that drivers could pay an extra three pence

:16:13.:16:14.

a litre more for diesel, due to international rules `imed

:16:15.:16:24.

at reducing pollution in the shipping industry.

:16:25.:16:26.

Ferry companies have been told to cut the amount of sulphur

:16:27.:16:29.

But some fear that could cost jobs and may have an impact on prices

:16:30.:16:34.

The Hull East MP Karl Turner secured a debate at Westminster

:16:35.:16:37.

Like all forms of transport, the shipping industry is under pressure

:16:38.:16:47.

to become cleaner, greener `nd more efficient. According to one Hull MP,

:16:48.:16:56.

very operators such as `` stch as PNO will be hit by expensivd

:16:57.:17:00.

regulations which will forcd them to change the fuel they use. They will

:17:01.:17:09.

not be able to swallow the cost They might have to cancel a ferry

:17:10.:17:14.

route, or potentially, employee lower waged ratings. Intern`tional

:17:15.:17:23.

rules mean the sulphur contdnt of fuel must fall to not .1% bx January

:17:24.:17:32.

2015. The shipping industry claims this will increase fuel costs by

:17:33.:17:38.

50%. They are warning of up to 000 job losses across the UK.

:17:39.:17:44.

We would like the gunmen to show leadership and lobby the yot to

:17:45.:17:49.

allow a transition period `` we would like the government to show

:17:50.:18:03.

leadership. Out drivers would rather not pay 3p

:18:04.:18:08.

a litre more for any reason. It will make a big dent in our family

:18:09.:18:12.

income, because we travel across the Humber Bridge everyday formwork The

:18:13.:18:18.

government has hit back at claims it is not doing enough to help the

:18:19.:18:22.

maritime industry. Ministers say they are working with Europd to look

:18:23.:18:26.

at ways of providing financd for shipping firms and ports.

:18:27.:18:35.

This is something the industry has had over six years to get its mind

:18:36.:18:38.

round. Extra fuel costs was one of the

:18:39.:18:43.

reasons given for the scrapping of the Harwich to Denmark servhce. Any

:18:44.:18:48.

help Hull's ferries route to not suffer a similar fate.

:18:49.:18:52.

I spoke to James Cole from Friends of the Earth.

:18:53.:18:55.

I asked him if firms need to put the environment before profht?

:18:56.:19:01.

I think what we are seeing hs companies making a shift to

:19:02.:19:03.

a low impact economy, and there are very strong economic

:19:04.:19:08.

After all, we only have one planet, and if we trash it, there won't be

:19:09.:19:13.

But this fuel we are talking about could mean ferry servhces

:19:14.:19:18.

at risk of closing, routes being lost and jobs going.

:19:19.:19:20.

I think we have to look at the big picture.

:19:21.:19:25.

As we move to a low impact dconomy, lots of jobs are being created.

:19:26.:19:28.

In Hull in March this year, we heard that Siemens are opening

:19:29.:19:31.

a new wind turbine factory which will create 1,000 jobs in Htll.

:19:32.:19:34.

So those people watching who like to go on the ferry,

:19:35.:19:38.

should they be prepared to pay more for their ticket to Holland or

:19:39.:19:41.

I think evidence shows constmers are willing to pay slightly mord for

:19:42.:19:46.

goods and services when thex know it's not trashing the environment.

:19:47.:19:48.

PNO say they care about the environment,

:19:49.:19:52.

but have deep`seated concerns about the consequences of this.

:19:53.:19:56.

Shouldn't we be listening to what they are saying?

:19:57.:19:59.

I think the government needs to support

:20:00.:20:02.

industry and the travel indtstry in transitioning to a lower impact form

:20:03.:20:06.

of business, and they need to look at all modes of transport, hncluding

:20:07.:20:09.

What's more important, a ferry sailing,

:20:10.:20:15.

Again, I think we have to look at the big picture, and we havd to look

:20:16.:20:25.

at the fact that we have only got one planet in which our bushnesses

:20:26.:20:28.

and economy operate, and if we want a thriving economy and a thriving

:20:29.:20:32.

society in the future, then we have to look at doing business in a way

:20:33.:20:36.

And if we lose a ferry routd and there will be lorries

:20:37.:20:40.

on our roads going to anothdr port or whatever, you will be quhte

:20:41.:20:43.

I think the government have to support the

:20:44.:20:47.

That means reducing the imp`ct of shipping and all modes of

:20:48.:20:57.

We're less than a week in to the World Cup

:20:58.:21:39.

but the fixtures are out for the new domestic football sdason.

:21:40.:21:42.

Hull City will travel to London for the opening day of the

:21:43.:21:44.

Premier League season where they will be face promoted Queens Park

:21:45.:21:47.

A week earlier, Scunthorpe Tnited's reward for promotion into Ldague One

:21:48.:21:51.

Our sports reported Simon Clark has been looking at the key fixtures.

:21:52.:22:01.

This is the moment the dreal realised. Better crowds, better

:22:02.:22:10.

teams and some important marvellous. Like Sheffield United on Boxing

:22:11.:22:15.

Day, with a return on March the 14th. A trip to Barnsley. Closest

:22:16.:22:24.

rivals Doncaster Rovers visht in October. Going to places like

:22:25.:22:32.

Bradford, Doncaster, Sheffidld, some big clubs in this league. It will be

:22:33.:22:39.

tough but we will approach ht with enthusiasm and positivity.

:22:40.:22:46.

Hometown`macro city's most rewarding game was a home win against

:22:47.:22:55.

Liverpool. They go to Manchdster United in November, returning on the

:22:56.:22:59.

final day after a season. M`nchester City are in Hull in November.

:23:00.:23:14.

Phil Buckingham believes thd Tigers have been given eg `` a decdnt

:23:15.:23:22.

chance with the early games. It is not easy to start at QPR. The others

:23:23.:23:31.

are teams that they took pohnts off last year. Many of those pl`ying in

:23:32.:23:42.

the World Cup in Brazil will grace the KC Stadium next year. It

:23:43.:23:56.

promises to be a belter. Weather has been fantastic today.

:23:57.:23:59.

More than 60,000 people are expected through the gates of the

:24:00.:24:02.

Lincolnshire show over therd two days. Because of the biggest event

:24:03.:24:07.

of the year, worth lots of loney to the economy. We have been c`ptains

:24:08.:24:14.

of the highlights of one. `` capturing.

:24:15.:24:30.

Try and make it look as good as possible for the judge. What could

:24:31.:24:42.

be better? Fantastic weather, huge crowds, absolutely marvellots. It is

:24:43.:24:47.

a wonderful show. It is the first time I have been and I have really

:24:48.:24:51.

enjoyed coming. It has been a very good show. Beautiful weather. What

:24:52.:24:53.

more could you ask? We have had a good show and we have

:24:54.:25:19.

gone. The best place to show my words is

:25:20.:25:33.

here. If you are going tomorrow, dnjoy

:25:34.:25:50.

yourself and say hello to the team. It will be a damp start but it will

:25:51.:25:55.

brighten. Now a recap of thd headlines.

:25:56.:26:03.

Extremists in Iraq are battling for control over the country was the

:26:04.:26:07.

country. Largest oil refinery. Convictions for animal cruelty in

:26:08.:26:10.

these Yorkshire are amongst the highest in the country.

:26:11.:26:21.

. Story of convictions for `nimal cruelty, a big response on this

:26:22.:26:30.

Wendy says that more checks should be done on bonus before dogs rescued

:26:31.:26:36.

sold. She has four dogs frol three different places, and not one of the

:26:37.:26:45.

people checked her out. Jackie says, enforced micro`chipping, ban

:26:46.:26:48.

puppy farms and support the kennel club and responsible breeders. Simon

:26:49.:26:54.

says, do you think the can of people capable of abusing animals would

:26:55.:26:56.

bother with the license for compulsory checks? Animal abusers

:26:57.:27:02.

have been shown to go on to further violence against people, so maybe

:27:03.:27:08.

compulsory jail terms would be better.

:27:09.:27:11.

Some strong, sir. Emily says, for weeks 14 so cruel shows that the law

:27:12.:27:20.

is not serious. The answers, we are supposed of nation of animal lovers.

:27:21.:27:24.

It is disgusting, the amount of cruelty that goes on, I am `ll for

:27:25.:27:28.

tougher sentences. Thank yot for those. Thank you for watching. Enjoy

:27:29.:27:40.

your evening. Join me later at 0:30 p.m.. See you tomorrow as wdll.
