Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:00.:00:07.

The multi`million pound transformation of the centrd of Hull

:00:08.:00:10.

that could bring more money to the city.

:00:11.:00:12.

Flash flooding hits homes and businesses as parts of

:00:13.:00:14.

East Yorkshire suffer torrential rain Plans to crackdown on

:00:15.:00:16.

motorbikes that have been d`maging a Lincolnshire beauty spot.

:00:17.:00:18.

The girl who's been recognised for never missing a day of classes

:00:19.:00:21.

It's being described as the biggest transformation ever

:00:22.:01:14.

?25 million will be spent ilproving streets and public places ahead

:01:15.:01:17.

of the City of Culture celebrations in 2017

:01:18.:01:22.

People living in the city are being promised street

:01:23.:01:27.

level fountains, mood lighthng and a less cluttered environment.

:01:28.:01:31.

It's claimed it could bring tens of millions of pounds into the local

:01:32.:01:35.

economy although those figures are already being questioned tonight.

:01:36.:01:38.

We'll hear from the City Cotncil in a moment but first our arts

:01:39.:01:41.

and culture correspondent Anne Marie Tasker is in Hull.

:01:42.:01:44.

It is about getting the citx ready. It is a once`in`a`lifetime

:01:45.:02:03.

opportunity for the city. It is important that the city looks its

:02:04.:02:08.

best. But of a story that whll come at a price as I have been fhnding

:02:09.:02:12.

out today. And not everyone thinks it is worth it.

:02:13.:02:23.

It's not had a facelift for decades `

:02:24.:02:25.

but within three years this is what Hull City centre could look like.

:02:26.:02:28.

Street level fountains in Queen Victoria Square,

:02:29.:02:30.

architecture lit at night and the Fruit Market pedestrianised, with a

:02:31.:02:32.

Hull City Council's paying the first half of the ?25 mhllion

:02:33.:02:37.

bill because it believes it will bring in new businesses.

:02:38.:02:44.

If we can attract big busindss and get more income into the city

:02:45.:02:51.

through high`quality jobs that will provide more revenue to restore some

:02:52.:02:56.

of the funding central government has cut from our day`to`day

:02:57.:02:57.

services. Hull City Council has made no secret

:02:58.:03:11.

of the fact it needs to save ?48

:03:12.:03:12.

million over the next two And starting this transform`tion

:03:13.:03:15.

will cost it more than ?12 lillion. Is it worth that much? No. H think

:03:16.:03:31.

we need to do what we can to bring tourism in this world.

:03:32.:03:55.

``and this will.

:03:56.:03:56.

But it's estimated it will bring an extra ?70 millioninto the chty every

:03:57.:03:59.

year And that it will support more than 500 new jobs over ten xears But

:04:00.:04:03.

one group, that analyses our city's economies, offers a note of caution.

:04:04.:04:06.

The events are often smaller or morphological than the plans may

:04:07.:04:24.

suggest. They enable people to get closer to our stalker wonderful

:04:25.:04:27.

heritage buildings in the chty and it is like a gold frame for a

:04:28.:04:31.

bootable picture that will bring out the beauty of the painting which is

:04:32.:04:33.

our city. But with pedestrianising

:04:34.:04:35.

King Edward Street and building performance stages in Queen's

:04:36.:04:37.

Gardens, too, there's not mtch time before City of Culture year to make

:04:38.:04:40.

all these plans a reality. Earlier I spoke to Steven B`yes from

:04:41.:04:48.

Hull City Council and asked him which other cities they'd looked at

:04:49.:04:51.

to get some ideas. If you look at many northern cities

:04:52.:05:01.

in Yorkshire and beyond such as Bradford and Leeds. We think it is

:05:02.:05:08.

quite important we improve the offer that we are giving. Should xou not

:05:09.:05:15.

be spending the money on jobs and keeping essential services such as

:05:16.:05:19.

museums open, rather than h`ving a floating stage and some figtre lies?

:05:20.:05:27.

We helping this proportionately affected by cuts that this hs not

:05:28.:05:32.

money that we would spend on those things, this is capital invdstment

:05:33.:05:36.

and we're trying to invest hn the infrastructure to encourage more

:05:37.:05:41.

private`sector jobs. But however lovely the Fountains maybe, you need

:05:42.:05:46.

shops here. Unless you're looking for something for the pound you are

:05:47.:05:52.

trying to borrow money. We're trying to encourage more people. Btt that

:05:53.:06:01.

is jargon. It is not. You only get shops if you get people. People want

:06:02.:06:09.

to come and experience life here and that is what we're trying ghve them.

:06:10.:06:13.

They you think people understand this? I hope so. As a city, we are

:06:14.:06:21.

trying to betray our best aspect and trying to encourage more retail into

:06:22.:06:26.

the city. We are in competition with places like Batley and Leeds and

:06:27.:06:30.

Sheffield. We have to have ` better offer. Are you saying you whll get

:06:31.:06:35.

retailers are you saying yot will get retailers? It is a way of

:06:36.:06:44.

reducing the cost for the council. It has spent to save initiative It

:06:45.:06:50.

is much cheaper. You see 500 jobs will be created. Where are those

:06:51.:07:00.

jobs? That is in the privatd sector. We are very clear from the

:07:01.:07:04.

calculation is what they ard about in terms of people spending more

:07:05.:07:09.

money, so we create employmdnt that way. Is it more important to keep a

:07:10.:07:16.

library or museum open or Fountains are mood lighting on the City Hall?

:07:17.:07:22.

That comes back to the issud of revenue and capital funding. Forget

:07:23.:07:32.

the jargon. It is not jargon. It is not the same sort of funding. It is

:07:33.:07:38.

always a different sort of funding story. We have revenue fundhng which

:07:39.:07:46.

pays peoples wages capital funding. We want to do both but we are

:07:47.:07:50.

limited of what we can do bx the amount of money that is givdn by

:07:51.:07:53.

central government in terms of revenue. We have is capital to

:07:54.:07:56.

invest in the city centre. Let us know what you think

:07:57.:08:03.

of this story. Is this what Hull needs to bring

:08:04.:08:06.

more visitors and money You will be charged at your standard

:08:07.:08:08.

message rate for each message. Torrential rain has caused flash

:08:09.:08:52.

flooding in East Yorkshire this afternoon. The fire service dealt

:08:53.:08:54.

with around 40 callouts and four homes in Cottingham were flooded.

:08:55.:09:01.

Parts of the village were under a foot of water before the fire

:09:02.:09:11.

service was able to pump thd water could only happen one in 200 years.

:09:12.:10:06.

That prediction has proven to be wrong. There were large hailstones

:10:07.:10:14.

and the water just came up to the top of my steps so I think we have

:10:15.:10:18.

been flooded again for the second time in seven years. Within half an

:10:19.:10:24.

hour of the downpour what w`s running through the doors of at

:10:25.:10:29.

least four homes in this arda. We have managed to keep it in check. I

:10:30.:10:35.

believe Upton though there have been 45 homes that have been flooded The

:10:36.:10:50.

local school was also flooddd as one part of the local hall of rdsidence

:10:51.:10:59.

at Hull University where sole students could not get out. We have

:11:00.:11:05.

been trapped in a room for five hours. This was a small scale event.

:11:06.:11:17.

But it is a reminder of how vulnerable our communities `re

:11:18.:11:23.

becoming far heavy rainfall. This family are trying to recover what

:11:24.:11:29.

they can from the garage. Cottingham high school say that this flood

:11:30.:11:36.

damage has been so severe that they are shut completely to their pupils

:11:37.:11:37.

tomorrow. Back to you. The Government has been warned that

:11:38.:11:48.

many lives could be lost in the next big flood to hit

:11:49.:11:51.

East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire Humber MPs met the Prime Minister

:11:52.:11:53.

at Downing Street today. David Cameron was told

:11:54.:12:02.

the Government needs to spend almost ?900 million to protect homds

:12:03.:12:11.

and businesses from flooding on the scale of last Decembdr's

:12:12.:12:13.

tidal surge. Our Political Editor Tim Irddale

:12:14.:12:15.

reports from Westminster. It's the ?880 million questhon. Is

:12:16.:12:17.

the Government willing to spend this amount of money over the next ten

:12:18.:12:22.

years to protect East Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire from flooding?

:12:23.:12:25.

Dave Mouncey is till picking up the pieces at his home in the flood`hit

:12:26.:12:28.

village of South Ferriby, following December's tidal surge.

:12:29.:12:31.

He fears it could happen ag`in They see it as an event that happens

one in 200 years. It came over there in 1954 and this is 2014. Come on,

:12:51.:12:54.

let us do something. Today Humber MPs met the Prhme

:12:55.:13:00.

Minister to set out their c`se for We were lucky it was that it was not

:13:01.:13:14.

more catastrophic and nobodx died this time. On there are hundreds of

:13:15.:13:25.

millions of pounds going into road defences, we need more. ``flood

:13:26.:13:39.

defences. We have been looking at the docks,

:13:40.:13:50.

looking at Immingham and thd facilities there and making sure

:13:51.:13:54.

that our structure is resilhent The Government this week colmitted

:13:55.:13:59.

an extra ?48 million towards flood defences on the Humber. But some MPs

:14:00.:14:02.

believe almost double that `mount should be spent on an annual basis,

:14:03.:14:05.

if householders and businesses are to be fully protected from ` flood

:14:06.:14:08.

event most of us hope we'll never Tim is live at Downing Stredt this

:14:09.:14:11.

evening. Is the Government likely to commit to this extra money for flood

:14:12.:14:25.

defences? I would love to say that thd Prime

:14:26.:14:33.

Minister has persuaded the Chancellor of its checker to a

:14:34.:14:54.

cheque for ?880 million. In the meantime, we hope we do not have

:14:55.:15:01.

another one in 200 year flood catastrophes, otherwise we will not

:15:02.:15:04.

be talking about whether we can afford to spend that money but why

:15:05.:15:10.

we cannot afford not to spend that money.

:15:11.:15:18.

Plans for an Eastern Bypass for Lincoln have been rejected by the

:15:19.:15:23.

Transport Secretary. They'vd been turned down because of a safety

:15:24.:15:25.

issue regarding one of the bridges that was due to be built between

:15:26.:15:28.

Cherry Willingham and Reefh`m. Lincolnshire County Council will now

An undertaker has gone to Westminster to ensure that

:15:33.:16:00.

ex`servicemen are given a ddcent funeral. The amount of ex`sdrvice

:16:01.:16:08.

people that die with no farl is this minute but each one deserves a

:16:09.:16:13.

dignified final journey and we will not go away until we get th`t. Still

:16:14.:16:33.

ahead, the damage being dond to a nature reserve in Lincolnshhre and

the schoolgirl who has never missed a day of classes. It is not just

:16:38.:17:07.

been east Yorkshire and Lincolnshire that has seen heavy downpours, we

:17:08.:17:12.

have had very heavy rain for the Great Yorkshire Show this afternoon.

:17:13.:17:25.

There are still heavy downpours to come. As we head whose evenhng, they

:17:26.:17:33.

will fizzle out and overnight it looks to set into a try spell. We

:17:34.:17:42.

will see the lowest temperatures down to around 12 Celsius which is

:17:43.:17:47.

50 45 height. It will be cooler than that in countryside idiots.

:17:48.:18:07.

The wind from the North may well reach eight gale force by tomorrow

:18:08.:18:23.

night which means there will be quite unsettled weather to come so

:18:24.:18:27.

on Thursday there will be r`in around from the morning but we hope

:18:28.:18:30.

that will tend to clear on Thursday afternoon and on Friday and Saturday

:18:31.:18:34.

there will be warm air coming in from the near continent but some

:18:35.:18:38.

stable ear as well which me`ns that there is likely to be a scattering

:18:39.:18:43.

of heavy showers with the stnshine. But not a bad day tomorrow.

:18:44.:19:17.

More than 300 families in Htll have had their blue recycling bins

:19:18.:19:20.

confiscated by the council, for putting the wrong sort of rtbbish in

:19:21.:19:23.

them. The City Council says it gave people plenty of warning before

:19:24.:19:26.

seizing the bins and needs to stop the contamination of recycl`ble

:19:27.:19:28.

waste. However critics say the council should be educating

:19:29.:19:30.

offenders, not punishing thdm. Jake Zuckerman reports.

:19:31.:19:49.

On Compass Rd in Hull the bhn men are coming. And they're checking

:19:50.:19:52.

every blue bin they empty. Since January more than 300 blue

:19:53.:19:55.

bins have been confiscated due to repeated contamination.

:19:56.:19:57.

The council says it does give plenty of warning.

:19:58.:20:05.

We send letters and for intdrviews and do not just take these bins

:20:06.:20:09.

away. With each household generathng

:20:10.:20:25.

around one tonne of waste. If they take them away they will

:20:26.:20:47.

just leave them in bags on the street.

:20:48.:21:14.

Hull City Council says the vast majority of households do a good job

:21:15.:21:17.

of recycling. And that the number of blue bins

:21:18.:21:19.

confiscated represents less than 1% of the total in use in the city

:21:20.:21:37.

This is another story we'd like your thoughts on. Is the City Cotncil

:21:38.:21:40.

right to take these bins aw`y as a punishment for people who

:21:41.:21:43.

persistently put non recycl`bles in them?

:21:44.:21:56.

It's home to rare wildflowers and many species of songbirds and

:21:57.:21:59.

butterflies but the Drift n`ture reserve in Lincolnshire is being

:22:00.:22:01.

destroyed by off road vehicles. According to the Police and Natural

:22:02.:22:04.

England the site is being ttrned into a muddy wasteland and now

:22:05.:22:07.

offenders are being told if they're caught they WILL be prosecuted.

:22:08.:22:09.

Simon Spark reports. This is how the drift on thd Viking

:22:10.:22:16.

way near Grantham should look. A plethora of plants and wildlife

:22:17.:22:18.

protected under its designation as a site of special scientific hnterest.

:22:19.:22:21.

But a lot of it now looks lhke this, churned up and rutted because it's

This is being used for what is cold green leaning with bikes behng

:22:57.:23:01.

we will catch you and if possible we will take your vehicles frol you.

:23:02.:23:07.

This should be level and should be covered in grass and wild flowers

and has been restored beford in 2009 but as soon as it was opened, the

:23:12.:23:19.

problem is returned. It was damaged again by frequent forward drive

:23:20.:23:24.

access. We are reluctant to implement anything until we are able

:23:25.:23:29.

to get rid of the vehicles that are destroying habitat here. We have

:24:19.:24:46.

Tolu Adeoye reports. pupils alike think its quitd frankly

:25:03.:25:23.

because when I am Pooley, I am pulling. Quite outstanding `nd

:25:24.:25:30.

:25:40.:25:52.

Try not to break any bones `nd if you have a problem speak to someone
