News. Good evening and welcome to
BBC Look North. The family
of a teen who killed himself after being threatened online call
for tougher laws on cyber btllying. Kids need to know that this is a
crime. If you commit the crhme there is a punishment.

As the rest of Yorkshire prepares for the Tour
de France, can businesses in the East benefit as well?
The rusty bit of metal kept in a shed that turned out to be
High pressure continues to dominate. Join me in the later at in the
programme for all the details. The family of a teenager who killed
himself after being bullied online say they want tougher laws to deal
with cyberbullying. Callum Moody`Chapman from Holten Ld Clay
was found dead on a beach in Cumbria last December. Cyber bullying is now
being blamed for an increasd in the number of young people being
referred to mental health sdrvices. Sarah Walton has been to medt
Callum's family. He was an amazing lad and hd would
do anything for anybody. Caring genuine. We knew each other so well
and that is what hurts me so much, that I did not see anything and I
have got to live with that. 17`year`old Callum readily tsed
Facebook to post pictures and videos but last year he was sent threats
that he would be beaten and stabbed and he was so troubled by the
messages that he killed himself in Cumbria. Now his mother wants cyber
bullying to be taken more seriously. Kids need to know that
this is a crime and if you commit the crime there is a punishlent At
the moment you get, the lad who cyber bullied camp `` Callul got a
referral order and to me th`t is not justice. There are a number of laws
that can be used to get a conviction for online abuse but at the moment
there is no legal definition of cyber bullying in the UK and no law
to deal with it specificallx. Experts say it can be more harmful
than face`to`face bullying `nd are blaming it for an increase hn young
people being referred to mental health services in Lincolnshire In
the last few years it has bdcome a major issue. The information stored
online means cyber bullies have access to so many more people
because of the way the Internet works. Many social media sites now
include a panic button to rdport abuse so abuse can be reported and
bullies banned. Schools try to teach people about the dangers. I was
cyber bullied and it is really horrible. You feel like you are
trapped and you cannot get out. You feel like everyone is against you
and you cannot confide in anyone. I felt I could not talk to anxone
about it but then I felt I had to because it would get worse. The
worst thing is to bottle it up and not speak to anyone about it. The
death of Callum made headlines across the country and now his
family hope that the story will help other victims of cyber bullxing and
their campaigning to raise awareness. Tell someone. If only
Callum had said something to someone things would have been so dhfferent.
As a family it is something we are going to push for, definitely. It
took a long time to get to this point but we will do it for Callum.
The family of Callum Moody`Chapman ending that report from
Tom McLaren Webb is from the charity Beat Bullying, H asked
him what type of on`line bullying is happening at the moment.
Through social networking shtes children are cyber bullying each
other and that can mean a lot of things. At its worst it is
encouraging children to kill themselves. Does cyber bullxing need
its own law? As far as we are concerned we think it does. The law
that covers cyber bullying hs not fit for purpose. It was written
before the development of social networking sites. Times havd changed
and the way bullying is happening has changed so the law needs to
change to keep pace with th`t. How does apparently know if it teenage
is being bullied online? Max have their own language and
abbreviations. They do but the signs are not that different from other
bullying. You need to look out for changes in the behaviour of the
child, maybe they become withdrawn and moody and they stop enjoying
going to school. They can spend a lot more time online. If those
things are happening you max have a problem and then we would s`y you
have to speak to your child. Some of these abbreviations are verx
frightening, do the parents need to know what they stand for? Everybody
needs so do the teachers and the
government. Bullying is a problem that is everybody's responshbility
to fix. A survey found that nearly one third of 11 to 16`year`olds has
been bullied online. That fhgure will alarm parents that are
watching. It I. That is what our research tells us. It is high. And
that is only the cases that have been reported. It is a big problem
and it needs a concerted and coherent response. What is xour
message to the parents that are watching? Talk to your child. Ask
Police in Lincoln are searching for a robber after a man didd
69`year`old Michael Broxholle was attacked and robbed on Frid`y
evening near his home on Hermit Street.
He was taken to Lincoln County Hospital but later died.
Our reporter Jake Zuckerman is in Lincoln.
Jake, what have the police said about the attack?
The robbery took place just here, at the back of hermit street in the
centre of Lincoln at around 5:3 pm on Friday. Police say he was pushed
to the floor during the att`ck and he had ?70 in his wallet th`t was
stolen. He died later that dvening, later on Saturday evening in
hospital. Police say that hd was well`known in the area and darlier I
spoke to friends of his at the local pub. I have known him all mx life
and this is devastating for us all, not just people who come in here,
the whole community is guttdd. He was a salt of the earth kind of guy.
You could not fault the lad. He was a nice man. He will be sadlx missed.
To these people that have done this, I do not want to see them in society
ever again. They should not be on the streets, as simple as that. A
lot of local people around their `` what have local people around there
been saying about what happdned I have been speaking to people
living in these flats who s`y that this area suffers a lot of
anti`social behaviour which can be intimidating which is why these
security gates have been fitted but at the moment they do not lock and
the police say it is a tragddy that this happens before it becoles
operational. It is a very ddprived area and there is poverty and
low`level drug taking. You can understand that when residents are
walking around people on thd streets drinking that it becomes a concern.
We are trying to stop this sort of street drinking and try and do as
much as we can to reassure residents. Police have arrested two
men aged 20 and 23 and they have since been bailed while the
investigations continue. Further tests are being carried out to find
out exactly why Michael Broxholme died and if it was directly related
to the robbery and the police are asking for witnesses.

picture. That was taken on Saturday. Now let us get the forecast.
Good evening. It is a lovelx evening across East Yorkshire and
Lincolnshire. It seems to md that tomorrow we are set for another fine
and dry day and we are lookhng at Sunny spells coming through. High
pressure continues to domin`te. The high pressure is right abovd us but
it does not mean wall`to`wall sunshine so there will be more cloud
in the morning but spells of sunshine. A fine end to tod`y.
Overnight there will be cle`r spells at first but the cloud comes in over
night. Temperatures drop down to 11 or 12 degrees. It is cooler in more
wrong spot. The sun will rise at 4:35am tomorrow. These are the high
water times. It will be a dry start to the day with a fair bit of cloud.
It will break up during the day so we are looking at warm spells of
sunshine coming through, especially towards the West where it is cooler
along the coast. Temperaturds will be about 16 or 17 degrees. Ht will
be higher further in land. High pressure continues to domin`te as we
head into Wednesday. Another mostly dry and finds Day `` fine d`y and it
could be dry and pleasant. @ll parts will feel some warm spells of
sunshine on Wednesday and it will be mostly fine and dry on Thursday but
cloud will increase and get sick on Friday. The rain will get hdavy
overnight into Saturday. Th`nk you very much indeed.
A doctor in Lincoln has admitted failures
in the care given to a man who died after his bowel cancer was lissed.
Mark Browne, seen here with his three children, was wrongly
diagnosed with piles in Decdmber 2008 by Dr Nicholas Smith from
The following September Mr Browne visited another GP who immediately
Scans showed his tumour was six centimetres long.
If he had been referred unddr the two`week wait rule in December 008
and January 2009 then he wotld have had the cancer removed before it had
had time to spread and Mr Astor size to his lungs. That would have meant
that he had a normal life expectancy. His widow and children
were in court in Nottingham today to hear the settlement after hhs doctor
admitted liability for care failures. The family was aw`rded an
undisclosed amount. It is a huge relief. We can plan a futurd now.
Obviously we will never fall get more but life has to go on `nd this
has given us the chance to do that. The Birchwood Practice has denied to
comment on the case. This is not the first time a doctor has failed to
make a cancer diagnosis. A survey last year found one quarter of
people eventually diagnosed with cancer had seen their GP at least
three times before being sent to a specialist. One in four casds were
diagnosed by staff in acciddnt and emergency after the doctors had
missed the symptoms. Jeremy Hunt says he wants to name GPs whth a
poor record of spotting signs of cancer. It is part of plans to make
the NHS more transparent. The information could then be ptblished
online. Simply naming and shaming GPs will lead to a tendency of just
referring everyone which wotld be a disadvantage because if we clog up
outpatient clinics than pathents who need to see a specialist will have
to wait longer. The plans could include GP surgeries being ranked on
how quickly they spot cases of cancer and referred patients for
treatment. Those missing too many could be marked with a red flag The
debate on this one is set to continue.
Cycling fans from all over the world are coming to Yorkshire this week,
as the county prepares to host the start of the world's biggest
The route doesn't actually come to East Yorkshire
but is just a matter of milds from villages in the west of the county.
But people on the East Coast say it max as well
be happening in London for `ll the difference it's making to them, as
our Culture Correspondent Anne`Marie Tasker has been finding out.
It has been to Britain once before but this week, for the first time,
the Tour de France comes to Yorkshire. The professional teams
have been checking the routd and businesses like this lodge park are
fully booked. I think everyone is excited about it. I have sedn so
many yellow bikes going up `ll around. People in the local area
have knitted bunting said they have tried their best to get everyone
involved in various ways. It is positive and exciting for the local
area and the whole of Yorkshire Here on the east coast it is a
different story. It is estilated the Tour de France will bring around
?100 million to Yorkshire btt they say they are seeing little or ``
little if any of that here. Bob says his hotel and others in
Bridlington have plenty of bookings but not a cycling fan among them. It
could as well have been London. It has made no difference but we did
not expect there would be. We have had a couple of members with people
in trying to escape the Tour de France so there is a bit of a bonus
there somewhere. With the r`cing happening miles away is the fever
taking hold in East Yorkshire? I have no idea, I did not even know
about it to be honest. This is the first I have heard. I do not know
anything about it. We are the biggest county, they cannot come
everywhere in the county so let us endorse it and embrace it and have a
great time and celebrate Yorkshire being shown to the world. For the
ardent cycling fan this weekend is the stuff of dreams. Ed is dven
getting to train with the tdams in Leeds. To be able to see thd
superstars of world cycling in Yorkshire in the world's largest
bike races is magnificent, absolutely superb and I cannot wait
for it. Preparations are well underway ahead of the race start
this weekend but how excited you are to see the teams in action lay
depend on which side of East Yorkshire you live on. I know many
people watching will be going to see the start on Leeds `` in Ledds on
Saturday. Hull FC have missed the chance to
go above city rivals Hull The Black and Whites battled to a
20`20 draw at Wakefield yesterday. They needed a try from Kirk Yeaman
with 40 seconds to go, followed by a Joe Westerman
conversion to tie the game. A unexploded World War II bomb has
been found in a garden shed The owner Peter Bending mistook
the object for a sash window weight, but realised it could be a bomb
after doing some research online. I found the sash window wait in
here, in the corner of the shed and I thought it looked a bit intricate
for the sash window wait and when I moved it a rack full. It might have
looked like a harmless chunk of metal but Peter had his hands on a
World War II bomb. I searchdd on Google for World War II bombs and it
matched almost exactly this which is an incendiary bomb. I was not
panicked to be honest because I had seen it before, I am sure I had seen
it as a child. I was not expecting it necessarily to go bang. Ht was
here that the bomb squad arrived. The street is too narrow to even
negotiate with a van and thdy confirmed that Peter had fotnd a
World War II bomb. I was out of my bedroom window upstairs when there
was a bomb squad and the police and we saw them all go down there and
they came out with a little bomb. This is an incendiary bomb that
takes fire on impact and max burn for 15 minutes and ignite anything
in its this energy. Incendi`ry bombs were intended to burn violently on
at `` impact. This video offered advice on how to put them ott. Going
back to the 60s and 70s it was a common currency for people to find
what they thought were bits of scrap and take them home with thel and
later find out they were live ordinance but to hear about it and
today is quite rare. I was relieved when the bomb squad came because
they know what they are doing and they were not going to play with it
so they took it away and it was a relief when they taken it away. No
one in the family knows how an unexploded bomb found its w`y into a
garden shed but it's only c`n rest easy, knowing it will not bd
spending another 30 years shtting behind his house. If you have a
story you think we should know about send us an e`mail.
Let's get a recap of the national and regional headlhnes
The veteran entertainer and artist Rolf Harris is told to expect a jail
sentence after being found guilty of 12 counts of indecent assault
against women and children. The family of a teen who killed
himself after being threatened online call for tougher laws on
cyber bullying, Tomorrow: A mostly dry, find, and
warm day with spells of sunshine and patchy cloud. Maximum temperature
These are your responses on the subject of cyber bullying. This one
says, bullying is bullying ` matter where it happens. It is dev`stating
to live with. This one says I left school seven years ago and cyber
bullying was a problem then. I suffered threats and derogatory
remarks but my school was excellent at dealing with the problem,
employee and expect to deal with the issue and I find it astoundhng that
the problem is still affecthng young people. The government needs to act.
Thank you for those. We will have more tomorrow. We will be b`ck with
the late news. Join me at 10:25 p.m.. Good night.
