A row erupts over the number of academy schools in East Yorkshire

:04:05.:04:07.

Investigations are continuing into the death of a man in Hull hn what's

:04:08.:04:17.

thought to be an industrial accident. More than a dozen

:04:18.:04:20.

emergency vehicles were called to Paragon Street in the City centre

:04:21.:04:22.

yesterday. The 37`year`old from the Doncaster

:04:23.:04:30.

area was working around the lifts in Queen's House at the time.

:04:31.:04:33.

Two people, arrested after the body of a newborn baby was found in Hull

:04:34.:04:37.

have been released on unconditional bail. The baby girl was found on

:04:38.:04:40.

Saturday evening close to a cycle path in the city. A post`mortem

:04:41.:04:43.

examination has confirmed there were no suspicious circumstances.

:04:44.:04:45.

A serious accident closed a major road through Lincolnshire for most

:04:46.:04:47.

of the afternoon. The crash which involved a horse box happendd on the

:04:48.:04:50.

A46 at Caistor just after 10 o'clock. Three people were taken to

:04:51.:04:53.

Teachers said that being run by a large Academy group would ghve them

:04:54.:05:28.

less scope to teach about local history. This is thanks in large

:05:29.:05:35.

part to the extra money sectred to the academy programme. Todax members

:05:36.:05:41.

of the Education Select Comlittee came here. They are on a mission to

:05:42.:05:47.

find out if their programme for the academies works as well for primary

:05:48.:05:51.

schools as it does for secondary schools. What we have seen hs that

:05:52.:06:00.

as long as academies can work together in groups, they can create

:06:01.:06:05.

the kind of scale that makes sense of being an academy. Academhes are

:06:06.:06:11.

free from local authority control and have the power to choosd their

:06:12.:06:16.

own curriculum and the abilhty to set their own pay and conditions for

:06:17.:06:21.

staff. Hence can also changd the length of terms and school days

:06:22.:06:27.

Students from across east Yorkshire and Lincolnshire will given the

:06:28.:06:34.

chance to quiz MPs today. I asked what the idea was with extending

:06:35.:06:40.

school hours and have school on Saturday. As young people, we need

:06:41.:06:51.

some form of social life. I think the programme has worked re`lly

:06:52.:06:57.

well. We got an outstanding review from Ofsted and it shows if they can

:06:58.:07:02.

do it now, in five years with all these changes, every school in Hull

:07:03.:07:12.

will be outstanding. One te`cher told the committee she had concerns

:07:13.:07:15.

about more primary schools becoming academies. I teach our maritime

:07:16.:07:27.

history and we talk about Aly Johnson and the local

:07:28.:07:29.

characteristics of Hull which make us proud. I do not want to be part

:07:30.:07:34.

of a local academy that is buying a curriculum from America. Thd final

:07:35.:07:39.

report on academies will be published later in the year. Do you

:07:40.:07:55.

accept that academies have been a hit by summer there are good schools

:07:56.:08:02.

and good academies and also less successful schools in both

:08:03.:08:05.

categories. We are concerned about the cherry picking of evidence.

:08:06.:08:14.

After 154 schools that were found to have below floor targets, over half

:08:15.:08:25.

of them were academies. Is not the National union of teachers bothered

:08:26.:08:28.

about protecting terms and conditions for your members rather

:08:29.:08:33.

than what is best for your pupils? The two go hand`in`hand for me. We

:08:34.:08:41.

must ensure that all our chhldren are given access to the verx best

:08:42.:08:46.

education which anyone involved in teaching the school system would

:08:47.:08:50.

want. The academies are not rather than on that either. But thdy have

:08:51.:08:55.

been effective in improving school standards? If you look at things

:08:56.:09:08.

like City, challenge, which was far cheaper in terms of good and

:09:09.:09:12.

sustainable school improvemdnts that has been more successftl than

:09:13.:09:16.

the academies programme. Here we have schools as islands and you do

:09:17.:09:20.

not get good school improvelent across an area unless you gdt good

:09:21.:09:26.

collaboration. The headteachers have more freedom over staff thex each

:09:27.:09:32.

means they can attract and retain good teachers. Surely if yot're a

:09:33.:09:35.

good teacher, you will be overjoyed about that? We have not seen

:09:36.:09:40.

academies using their peak discretion is to do anything except

:09:41.:09:44.

towards the most senior poshtions in the school so the things th`t have

:09:45.:09:48.

gone up and academies have not been teacher pay. Is this a stepfather

:09:49.:09:56.

Dean education are a step b`ck? A massive step backwards. It hs an

:09:57.:10:13.

ideological programme. We are very keen if your people, teacher or

:10:14.:10:15.

parent to get your views on this. The deaths of two Red Arrows pilots

:10:16.:10:29.

three years ago prompted discussions over whether there was a future for

:10:30.:10:33.

the display team. Flight Lidutenant Jon Egging and Flight Lieutdnant

:10:34.:10:36.

Sean Cunningham were killed in Their colleagues say it is right to

:10:37.:10:53.

continue. We had to take stock and sit back and work out what had gone

:10:54.:11:06.

wrong. Do they have a futurd? We have had willingness from the

:11:07.:11:09.

general public that we do what we do. The Magna Carta has been flown

:11:10.:11:17.

to America to begin celebrations for its 800th anniversary. It is seen as

:11:18.:11:24.

the basis for parts of the Tnited States Constitution and will get

:11:25.:11:28.

superstar status during its six month to and will even get `n armed

:11:29.:11:34.

guard. Our correspondent had exclusive access to see it being

:11:35.:11:42.

prepared. Nothing is left to chance. At a secret location in Lancashire,

:11:43.:11:46.

every crack and the ink and every care is being painstakingly

:11:47.:11:51.

photographed and logged and you can forget putting it in a suitcase

:11:52.:12:00.

This is the frame that we use. Inside the housing, there are layers

:12:01.:12:04.

of special materials and silica beats which soak up moisturd from

:12:05.:12:21.

the air. ``silica beads. It is insured for very high value and it

:12:22.:12:27.

is considered to be Britain's greatest export. Moving the Magna

:12:28.:12:34.

Carta thousands of miles prdsents challenges and they have had to

:12:35.:12:38.

custom build this protectivd housing so they can control the temperature

:12:39.:12:41.

and humidity and light as mtch as possible. This gigantic casd does

:12:42.:12:47.

not even travel first class. It will have its very own secure

:12:48.:12:51.

compartment. Once there the Magna Carta will be shown in Boston and

:12:52.:12:55.

eventually travelled to Washington, DC. Many copies were made btt only

:12:56.:13:02.

four have survived. It was written on sheepskin and outline thd basic

:13:03.:13:09.

rights for people. This has become the basis of British law and the

:13:10.:13:15.

Constitution of America. Thd English first spell down the rights and

:13:16.:13:19.

liberties of man in the Magna Carta. US president Barack Obama s`id that

:13:20.:13:25.

the document helped forge Alerican values and for years it has

:13:26.:13:32.

captivated the country. This was his visit to New York in 1939. Fans

:13:33.:13:37.

flocking to see it is something witnessed on more recent trhps. It

:13:38.:13:42.

is fascinating to see the ydllow buses with all the schoolkids lined

:13:43.:13:46.

up outside the venue and it is the teachers as well. I had one teacher

:13:47.:13:52.

in tears saying that she never thought she would live to sde this.

:13:53.:13:58.

Wait until I get back to my schoolkids and tell them. It is that

:13:59.:14:03.

sort of reaction and it is very exciting. The Magna Carta h`s flown

:14:04.:14:07.

out to the United States today under careful scrutiny. After defdat in

:14:08.:14:23.

the singles, there are bettdr hopes in the doubles for our local

:14:24.:14:33.

players. And the red arrows share the secrets of their success. This

:14:34.:14:43.

photograph is of the Power Boat races at the weekend. It was

:14:44.:14:57.

fascinating watching on Sunday. It has not been quite as good today as

:14:58.:15:00.

we have thought as weather forecasters. We forecast a small

:15:01.:15:26.

patch of rain. For the next 24 hours it will be dry with some sunshine

:15:27.:15:30.

and high`pressure reasserting itself for a short time, so that Wddnesday

:15:31.:15:36.

and Thursday will be generally fine at a big change in the forecast

:15:37.:15:40.

compared to yesterday for Friday and the weekend and it looks as though

:15:41.:15:43.

conditions will turn much more unsettled through Friday and the

:15:44.:15:46.

weekend with the rest of outbreaks of rain. That is a long way off and

:15:47.:15:52.

things can change. There is a cold front we successfully forec`st to

:15:53.:15:56.

come soap words from the North during the course of today `nd it

:15:57.:16:00.

brought some heavy showers, especially across parts of

:16:01.:16:04.

Lincolnshire. Thanks ladies are out of the way and we will see clearing

:16:05.:16:07.

skies from the north. That hs just the chance of that odd and light

:16:08.:16:26.

show. `` shower. The next hhgh water time in Cleethorpes will be seven

:16:27.:16:32.

minutes past five on Friday morning. There will be just the odd light

:16:33.:16:36.

shower but most places will be fine with variable amounts of cloud and

:16:37.:16:40.

will be some decent sunny spells as well. Just a light north and

:16:41.:16:46.

north`east breeze and the top temperatures will be quite cool

:16:47.:16:52.

along the coast with any telperature of 15 degrees in Bridlington and

:16:53.:16:59.

Skegness. Inland it will be around about 18 degrees. First it looks

:17:00.:17:02.

fine with some sunshine and then it looks like rain will spread from the

:17:03.:17:07.

site through Friday leaving an unsettled and show the weekdnd. ``

:17:08.:17:24.

showery weekend. The government needs to do lore to

:17:25.:17:31.

protect the East Yorkshire dconomy from future flooding` the stark call

:17:32.:17:34.

from a council today followhng a report into Decembers tidal surge.

:17:35.:17:37.

East Riding of Yorkshire Cotncil says cutbacks at the Environment

:17:38.:17:39.

Agency are preventing it from doing its job properly and putting the

:17:40.:17:42.

area at risk. But it has also called for a thorough review of flood

:17:43.:17:45.

warning procedures to help people prepare for future events. Phillip

:17:46.:17:48.

Norton reports. It was the most damaging co`stal

:17:49.:17:57.

flooding since 1953. Homes were lost and businesses closed. Now this

:17:58.:18:03.

report has said that the tiling of flood warnings and tidal prddictions

:18:04.:18:09.

by the Environment Agency nded to be reviewed and no cause for the

:18:10.:18:14.

government to help. The key message is that the Environment Agency is

:18:15.:18:19.

underfunded by the government further responsibilities it carries

:18:20.:18:23.

and have an opportunity, working with all the members of Parliament

:18:24.:18:28.

together, to put our case forward. That is a huge economic risk for the

:18:29.:18:47.

East Riding and for how. ``for Hull. Across the East Riding 69 btsinesses

:18:48.:18:53.

were affected and over 300 homes flooded. It was many months before

:18:54.:19:03.

some businesses could reopen. The water was up to here and evdrything

:19:04.:19:10.

was completely tipped over. This woman says she was happy with the

:19:11.:19:13.

warnings but there was nothhng that could be done to protect her

:19:14.:19:17.

business. What happened happened. It was quick and it happened. Ht was a

:19:18.:19:25.

freak. You just accepted it really. Others also say they were w`rned. We

:19:26.:19:34.

go regularly on the website and use that that as much notice as possible

:19:35.:19:42.

is always helpful. The Environment Agency says it is working closely

:19:43.:20:03.

with the council. The government says it is spending more th`n ever

:20:04.:20:27.

before. If you want to be in touch on this matter, here is how to

:20:28.:20:42.

contact us. Thank you to evdryone for getting in touch with us about

:20:43.:20:47.

the threat to the ice rink `t Grimsby. Many messages were

supporting the reopening of the ice rink. Simon says this. This one is

from Terry. Karen says this. Thank you for all those comments. To

tennis players are hoping that the Wimbledon organisers look on them

:21:37.:21:41.

kindly when the doubles competition gets underway tomorrow. Both have

:21:42.:21:47.

applied for wild cards sincd their exits from the singles yestdrday.

:21:48.:21:51.

It is the world's top tennis tournament but, as is often the

:21:52.:21:57.

case, a tall order for many British players. That was true for

:21:58.:22:00.

19`year`old Kyle Edmund, thd Beverley player facing the world

:22:01.:22:02.

number 95, Andreas Haider`M`urer. He pushed hard, very hard at thmes

Austrian who emerged victorhous in straight sets. Kyle, though, felt

:22:06.:22:11.

there were good things for him and his coach Greg Rusedski to work

:22:12.:22:15.

on, going into the doubles. Me and my coach have been working

:22:16.:22:19.

together about seven weeks now and I have improved

:22:20.:22:23.

since then. We know what I need to do and where I can hmprove

:22:24.:22:26.

on stuff and it's a long transition.

in the mixed doubles with Linclonshire colleague Jade

Court 18, especially during a victorious third set

:22:48.:22:50.

against world number 43, Jeremy Chardy . He went down in

:22:51.:22:53.

four but was positive about his future prospects. The next step is

:22:54.:22:56.

take the experience I got today with me

:22:57.:23:01.

and try and improve what I need to work on. It would have been a major

:23:02.:23:05.

story if either Dan or Kyle had gone through to the second round.

:23:06.:23:08.

Their ambition now lies in the doubles,

Windling in the mixed doublds ` an all`Lincolnshire partnership ` that

:23:25.:23:27.

hoping to play doubles with, was las year's French junior dotbles

champion so he has got some pedigree.
