Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North. The headlines tonight.

:00:00.:00:08.

?200 million from the Government to boost the economy here. A quarter

:00:09.:00:16.

will go on flood defences. The four`year`old waiting for eczema

:00:17.:00:19.

treatment as doctors debate the price of it.

:00:20.:00:43.

For me to have two say you can't have it, she doesn't understand it.

:00:44.:01:09.

It is not fair. I will be back with the details of the forecast.

:01:10.:01:15.

Millions of pounds is to be spent on flood defences on the banks

:01:16.:01:18.

of the Humber to protect more than 60,000 properties.

:01:19.:01:20.

The announcement is part of a ?200 million spending package

:01:21.:01:23.

for this area to attract investment and create jobs.

:01:24.:01:25.

Tonight one of Hull's biggest private sector employers which

:01:26.:01:41.

suffered millions of pounds worth of damage during the tidal surge says

:01:42.:01:44.

Sarah Corker has been looking at the figures.

:01:45.:01:47.

The Humber is getting ?103 million of government money for 12 projects.

:01:48.:01:57.

And it's estimated that will help to safeguard or

:01:58.:01:59.

Now almost half of that money, ?48 million,

:02:00.:02:03.

December's tidal surge exposed Hull's vulnerability to coastal

:02:04.:02:16.

flooding, inundating businesses and homes along the Humber.

:02:17.:02:18.

Today, the port director told me improved

:02:19.:02:26.

flood defences protecting 68,000 properties will help to attract news

:02:27.:02:28.

It's very important for the multi`million pound businesses, many

:02:29.:02:38.

businesses up and down the estuary, and those who are about to relocate

:02:39.:02:41.

here that they feel confident that the Government understand that we

:02:42.:02:44.

And smaller businesses like this seafood company are now

:02:45.:02:51.

We can look at a new fleet and vehicles. It is very welcome. It has

:02:52.:03:04.

been difficult. Improved defences also means

:03:05.:03:08.

thousands of homes in North There's money too to support

:03:09.:03:10.

the electricifcation of the Hull to Selby line and

:03:11.:03:13.

for an enhanced footbridge over Lincolnshire will share ?111 million

:03:14.:03:16.

between 15 projects focusing It'll be used to build up to 2,000

:03:17.:03:27.

new homes Lincolnshire has so many transport

:03:28.:03:32.

bottlenecks, such an extensive road network, so we've really focused

:03:33.:03:46.

on some of those key bottlenecks and making sure government

:03:47.:03:48.

understands the need to put money Economic development comes

:03:49.:03:51.

from that. The biggest share of that money,

:03:52.:04:06.

?16 million, will be spent on the long`awaited Grantham relief

:04:07.:04:09.

road to cut congestion in the town. Each local enterprise partnership `

:04:10.:04:15.

made up of businesses and councils ` has had to bid

:04:16.:04:17.

for the money from the Government. These growth deals are

:04:18.:04:21.

a massive transfer of money, of power from Whitehall to local areas

:04:22.:04:23.

like this so that they can build The idea is that local people know

:04:24.:04:26.

best about how and where investment is needed

:04:27.:04:30.

helping businesses to flourish. There's a real focus on skills

:04:31.:04:32.

and training too. In Lincolnshire they'll be

:04:33.:04:34.

a new science and technology park at University

:04:35.:04:36.

of Lincoln, an agricultural college is to be built at Lincolnshire

:04:37.:04:38.

showground and a business park Three colleges in Grimsby and Goole

:04:39.:04:41.

will get money for specialist training

:04:42.:04:52.

for the renewables industry. All these projects set

:04:53.:04:54.

to start next year. Earlier I spoke with Noel Waters

:04:55.:04:56.

from Smith and Nephew, a leading medical product manufacturer in Hull

:04:57.:04:59.

who were flooded during December's He told me about

:05:00.:05:01.

the impact it had on the business. There was major damage to the site.

:05:02.:05:24.

All our head offices were flooded. It had a major impact on our ability

:05:25.:05:28.

to continue to supply from this site. How much it cost the business

:05:29.:05:33.

in total? We are still going through that, but

:05:34.:05:41.

it is many, many millions. In excess of $20 million. Good grief. Did it

:05:42.:05:46.

make you consider your position at the side of the Humber? Would you

:05:47.:05:55.

move? It was a great concern, particularly when we realised the

:05:56.:06:00.

flood defences were in such a poor state. The levels were considerably

:06:01.:06:11.

below where we had, where it grows to. What about today, with this use

:06:12.:06:15.

of ?3 million going to the Albert Dock? Does that make you feel

:06:16.:06:23.

differently? It is excellent news, for the city of Hull and all the

:06:24.:06:28.

businesses in this area. Quite clearly, it makes us feel more

:06:29.:06:31.

secure that we will be protected from the scene, but we are taking

:06:32.:06:42.

some of our own precautions as well. Can you make a firm commitment that

:06:43.:06:49.

you are staying? Yes, well, we are committed to Hull. We have a

:06:50.:06:56.

long`term commitment Hull. The business started eliminating 56. We

:06:57.:07:03.

have got this business back up and running. `` the business started

:07:04.:07:06.

back in 1856. Thank you very much. In a moment: How this driver turned

:07:07.:07:15.

the tables on the parking warden, using CCTV to prove the authorities

:07:16.:07:20.

wrong. A four`year`old girl with severe

:07:21.:07:27.

eczema is having to wait to get access to medication, even though

:07:28.:07:30.

it's been prescribed by a hospital consultant. The girl's mother

:07:31.:07:40.

believes the drugs are being withheld because of the price, and

:07:41.:07:42.

says if she lived elsewhere they would be available. A national

:07:43.:07:45.

patients' group says cases like this are becoming more common since local

:07:46.:07:48.

doctors were given more power over This, what we're looking at now,

:07:49.:07:50.

is quite good. When she starts scratching,

:07:51.:08:02.

it bleeds, Her feet, her hands,

:08:03.:08:03.

and all over her body. Four`year`old Kacey suffers

:08:04.:08:12.

from severe eczema. It's only her face

:08:13.:08:14.

which is clear from the condition. It's there all the time,

:08:15.:08:16.

it never goes away. For Kacey, I can't begin to

:08:17.:08:18.

imagine what this is like for her. According to Katylee,

:08:19.:08:22.

Kacey was prescribed special bandages and steroid creams

:08:23.:08:25.

on 3rd June by her consultant On 5th June,

:08:26.:08:30.

her GP surgery refused to issue it. Her case was reviewed last week

:08:31.:08:40.

on 3rd July by the local Clinical Commissioning Group,

:08:41.:08:42.

which overseas GP care. But the following day, the GP

:08:43.:08:44.

practice told her they'd have to wait for confirmation in writing,

:08:45.:08:48.

which could take up to ten days and then it would then be another

:08:49.:08:51.

week before her medication arrives. It makes me angry, it makes me

:08:52.:08:55.

upset and it's disheartening. For me to come out

:08:56.:09:06.

of that surgery and say you can't have it, which she can't understand,

:09:07.:09:09.

it's not good enough. Hull Royal Infirmary says it hasn't

:09:10.:09:12.

prescribed anything out of the ordinary, body bandages

:09:13.:09:14.

and topical creams, suitable To make matters worse, Katylee

:09:15.:09:16.

believes it's because she lives here in Hedon in East Yorkshire that her

:09:17.:09:20.

daughter didn't automatically get But if she lived a few miles

:09:21.:09:23.

down the road in Hull, it would have been a more positive

:09:24.:09:30.

outcome from the start. Ruth Marsden from patient group

:09:31.:09:39.

Healthwatch says cases like these aren't unusual now that decisions

:09:40.:09:42.

are made at a very local level. Most people assume that their

:09:43.:09:45.

relationship with their GP, because of the personal nature of that,

:09:46.:09:47.

means that their GP can pull out of his clinical hat whatever they

:09:48.:09:50.

may require for their condition. Now unfortunately

:09:51.:09:59.

a GP is not entirely a free agent, he is governed and,

:10:00.:10:01.

in many ways restricted, both Kacey's mother says she's worried

:10:02.:10:04.

about how much longer she'll have to wait to get the medication her

:10:05.:10:08.

daughter so desperately needs. We want to hear from you on this

:10:09.:10:12.

story. Have you had a similar experience to Kacey? Do you think

:10:13.:10:15.

some drugs and treatments should be A former Humberside police constable

:10:16.:11:00.

has appeared in court and `` and pleaded guilty to a number of sexual

:11:01.:11:07.

assaults. He pleaded guilty to misconduct by engaging in sexual

:11:08.:11:11.

activity while on duty and admitted misconduct by carrying out sexual

:11:12.:11:14.

assault while working as a police officer. He has been bailed to

:11:15.:11:19.

appear at Sheffield Crown Court for sentencing on August 27.

:11:20.:11:25.

A man accused of starting a fire on a North Sea ferry

:11:26.:11:28.

off the coast of Bridlington which led to six people being winched off

:11:29.:11:32.

the ship and airlifted to hospital has pleaded guilty to arson.

:11:33.:11:34.

26`year`old Boden George Hughes from Sunderland admitted committing

:11:35.:11:36.

arson but he still denies arson with intent to endanger life.

:11:37.:11:39.

The prosecution said he was very drunk and under the influence

:11:40.:11:41.

of drugs when he set fire to bedding in the cabin with a lighter.

:11:42.:11:52.

A driver from Lincolnshire has had a parking ticket cancelled after it

:11:53.:11:55.

was wrongly issued. Ron Best received the ticket for leaving his

:11:56.:11:58.

car on a street in Horncastle for more than two hours, in a one`hour

:11:59.:12:01.

bay. But he had his own CCTV footage showing he had actually moved his

:12:02.:12:04.

car in that time. Lincolnshire County Council has now said the

:12:05.:12:07.

member of the staff will go through further training. Jessica Lane

:12:08.:12:10.

Ron Best keeps a CCTV camera in his car in case he's in an accident.

:12:11.:12:21.

But he used it when he was given a parking ticket

:12:22.:12:28.

And accused of staying for over two hours in a one`hour space.

:12:29.:12:35.

According to the officer, my wheels were in the same position. In the

:12:36.:12:44.

meantime, not only was the car parked in a different position, it

:12:45.:12:49.

was part it different way down the road and I had driven several miles.

:12:50.:12:53.

Ron says this video shows that journey.

:12:54.:12:55.

So he appealed. After investigating, the council

:12:56.:12:57.

sent this letter saying he shouldn't have been given the ticket at all

:12:58.:13:00.

Lincolnshire County Council has apologised. In a statement, it said:

:13:01.:13:26.

Without the CCTV footage, I would've been struggling to prove it. They

:13:27.:13:39.

tell a negative effect on the town. That it has a negative effect on the

:13:40.:13:41.

town. The council says if other people

:13:42.:13:44.

think they've been wrongly given a ncolnshire's Red Arrows meet one

:13:45.:13:47.

of their number one fans. Storm cloud over New Ellerby,

:13:48.:14:04.

sent in by Chris Clark. If Paul was here, I think tomorrow

:14:05.:14:29.

night we will do a feature on part`time work. As he cannot get

:14:30.:14:37.

there? I think so. Not sure many people are

:14:38.:14:42.

complaining. It is quieter in the office.

:14:43.:14:44.

I am not complaining. Thank you. Some very heavy showers

:14:45.:14:51.

out there at the moment across northern part of Lincolnshire,

:14:52.:14:54.

heading into part of East Yorkshire. Another batch pushing from the

:14:55.:15:00.

South. Tomorrow, there will be sunshine and heavy showers as well.

:15:01.:15:05.

We have a warning from the Met office for some torrential

:15:06.:15:11.

downpours. We have a friend coming in from the east. I think it will

:15:12.:15:21.

affect those late on Wednesday. We have some very heavy showers out

:15:22.:15:31.

there at the moment. Temperatures dropping back to 14 or 15. By late

:15:32.:15:51.

morning we will begin to see showers bubbling up. Might see some lines of

:15:52.:15:59.

showers. Some could be very heavy. Not everywhere is getting them. It

:16:00.:16:06.

could be a beautiful day along the coast. The bridges in land, up to

:16:07.:16:14.

about 20 degrees. The great Yorkshire show this week. Wednesday

:16:15.:16:24.

looks like most of the day will be dry. Outbreaks of rain on Thursday.

:16:25.:16:35.

That was not meant to be there. I was just going to say, nice and

:16:36.:16:40.

professional, then used by late at the last minute.

:16:41.:16:44.

Don't tell him. See you tomorrow.

:16:45.:16:48.

Yorkshire is celebrating what's been described by the boss of the Tour de

:16:49.:16:51.

France as the best Grand Depart ever.

:16:52.:16:53.

Millions of people turned out at the weekend to get a glimpse of the

:16:54.:17:04.

riders. It cost millions of pounds to stage the event but in return

:17:05.:17:07.

it's hoped it will bring ?100 million into the regional economy.

:17:08.:17:09.

The man who brought the Tour de France to Yorkshire says it's been a

:17:10.:17:13.

I always knew it would be big, I knew it would be good. I never

:17:14.:17:23.

expected in my wildest expectations we would get the millions and

:17:24.:17:25.

millions of people we have had. The skies of Yorkshire were buzzing

:17:26.:17:31.

with helicopters relaying live pictures of the Tour de France

:17:32.:17:34.

on Saturday and Sunday. Among them, the Yorkshire Air

:17:35.:17:36.

Ambulance had its busiest ever weekend, and at one point during

:17:37.:17:40.

the race was given priority when it A bird's`eye view of one of

:17:41.:17:42.

Yorkshire's proudest moments. By mid`morning on Saturday, calls

:17:43.:17:48.

for help were coming in thick and A patient has fallen through a roof,

:17:49.:17:51.

some 20 feet. We are unsure exactly

:17:52.:17:58.

of their injuries at the moment. Around two million spectators

:17:59.:18:01.

watched and there were miles It's difficult to transport

:18:02.:18:06.

patients to hospital. This is the easiest way

:18:07.:18:11.

to save lives this weekend. So much so, the Yorkshire Air

:18:12.:18:14.

Ambulance has brought in a third Just a few miles from the start,

:18:15.:18:17.

as the Tour passes through Skipton, Sally Hartley's effort to get a

:18:18.:18:27.

better view landed her in trouble. She landed on her leg

:18:28.:19:00.

and then twisted and then her head There is a wound at the back

:19:01.:19:02.

of her head. My mum owns a salon at the Corn Mill

:19:03.:19:07.

and we have got a corrugated roof. There was a load of people up there

:19:08.:19:11.

and me and my mum decided to go up She just took one step out,

:19:12.:19:22.

fell 20 foot. The paramedics have been fantastic

:19:23.:19:30.

to get there as soon as they could. Sally was kept

:19:31.:19:33.

in hospital overnight and released. Other patients included

:19:34.:19:35.

a schoolboy who fell off the chair, While the incline,

:19:36.:19:37.

rather than the crowds, proved too As he started up here,

:19:38.:19:41.

which is a pretty big hill. He started to get some chest pain

:19:42.:19:45.

and started to get out of breath. In total 20 patients were airlifted

:19:46.:19:50.

to hospital and in what was a successful weekend for Yorkshire

on the ground and in the air. Humberside police say they don't

:19:54.:20:15.

need any more money to police anti`fracking demonstrations in East

Yorkshire. And via mental test is accused of fossil been heavy`handed.

:20:23.:20:30.

`` environmentalists force of being heavy`handed.

:20:31.:20:36.

We are not spending much and we're not using much of our resources. I

:20:37.:20:41.

hope we can continue to keep it in the way it is now and manage it at a

:20:42.:20:43.

low level. Hull Arena will close later this

:20:44.:20:51.

month because of changes to EU rules. The venue's refrigeration

:20:52.:20:54.

system needs to be replaced to meet new regulations and it's expected to

:20:55.:20:57.

remain shut until early September. Hull City Council are talking to

:20:58.:21:00.

Hull Stingrays Ice Hockey team to find an alternative venue for their

:21:01.:21:02.

pre`season preparations. "Grimsby", Sacha Baron Cohen won't

:21:03.:21:04.

be coming to the town for any filming. The comedian, who's best

:21:05.:21:09.

known for characters such as Ali G and Borat, did visit the town before

:21:10.:21:13.

filming started. But the action`comedy is instead being shot

:21:14.:21:16.

on a closed set in London, before Hull City have completed the signing

:21:17.:21:35.

of Tom Ince. He signed a two`year deal with the Tigers. Negotiations

:21:36.:21:39.

are continuing between the Tigers and black `` and Blackpool.

:21:40.:21:46.

The chairman of Hull Kingston Rovers says he hopes the newly appointed

:21:47.:21:49.

coach Chris Chester will be in the role for the long term. In his first

:21:50.:21:52.

game in charge, Chester saw Rovers beat Superleague leaders St Helens

:21:53.:21:55.

by 40 points to ten. Speaking after the match Neil Hudgell said it was

:21:56.:21:58.

the right time for a change at the club.

:21:59.:22:04.

We will do what is the best for the team, and we think the best is a

:22:05.:22:11.

change. Chris is very well thought of in the club. We hope we can talk

:22:12.:22:19.

long time. It is a great opportunity. I am looking forward to

:22:20.:22:27.

the next eight games. I reckon we need another four to get in the

:22:28.:22:31.

play`offs. Who knows what happened after that. Lee Radford says he is

:22:32.:22:41.

still hopeful of reaching the play`offs despite losing to

:22:42.:22:42.

Warrington. And you'll be able to see the

:22:43.:22:46.

highlights from both games on the Superleague show tonight. It's on at

:22:47.:22:49.

11.35 on BBC One. One of Lincolnshire's Red Arrows is

:22:50.:22:55.

out of action for the foreseeable future after being hit during a

display at Waddington after being badly damaged by a bird

:23:00.:23:06.

strike during the show. with one of their biggest fans.

:23:07.:23:13.

Ten`year`old Tahnee was among the crowds at the Waddington Air Show.

:23:14.:23:17.

She made the news last year when she wrote to the Arrows, but forgot to

:23:18.:23:20.

include her address. They tracked her down and at the weekend her

:23:21.:23:23.

dream of meeting the team came true. Flying in for a VIP meeting with

:23:24.:23:28.

one of their biggest fans. How are you feeling today? Very

:23:29.:23:43.

excited, I can't wait. Because I get to meet Red 1 and

:23:44.:23:46.

yeah, it's going to be really fun. Is one of those going to be your

:23:47.:23:52.

plane? We first met Tahnee last December

:23:53.:23:55.

after she wrote to Red 1. "I really want to be a Red Arrows

:23:56.:23:58.

pilot when I grow up. "I have been working really hard

:23:59.:24:01.

at school." Without a return address,

:24:02.:24:03.

he couldn't write back. Eventually, the team tracked

:24:04.:24:05.

her down and invited her here to It has just been really,

:24:06.:24:11.

really exciting and we've been We have been

:24:12.:24:20.

around to the stalls to see the RAF stalls and she can't help but tell

:24:21.:24:25.

everybody what she's doing today. It's been really fun. I've looked at

:24:26.:24:28.

all the stalls and everything. I'm going to buy some stuff from the

:24:29.:24:31.

Red Arrows stall later. This is the moment that

:24:32.:24:34.

Tahnee has been waiting for. She is about to meet Red 1 and

:24:35.:24:36.

get the opportunity to ask him what For ten minutes,

:24:37.:24:40.

this ten`year`old quizzed her hero What's your favourite plane apart

:24:41.:24:50.

from the Hawk? F`14, Tomcat. I just love it. It's a

:24:51.:25:01.

brute, isn't it? It was amazing,

:25:02.:25:08.

one minute I was just sitting there and then they all came out. It was

:25:09.:25:15.

just brilliant. It's been a long time

:25:16.:25:18.

since she wrote in. No return address, and we tracked

:25:19.:25:21.

her down, so that's brilliant. She is a lovely, sweet, little

:25:22.:25:24.

girl and she is really desperate To end this memorable day,

:25:25.:25:27.

a chance for Tahnee to watch her favourite

:25:28.:25:30.
