New security measures for electronic devices have been introduced for all

:00:00.:00:00.

flights Good evening and welcome to BBC Look

:00:00.:00:11.

North. The headlines tonight: Holidays in term`time ` banned by

:00:12.:00:14.

the Government. But Humbershde Police say their children should be

:00:15.:00:16.

a special case. Yorkshire ` cyclists race through

:00:17.:00:46.

the centre of Hull tonight. family holidays. Should puphls whose

:00:47.:01:56.

parents are serving police officers be given special permission to skip

:01:57.:02:03.

lessons in term time? The body that represents rank`and`file police

:02:04.:02:06.

officers believe they should. There are many officers who will not

:02:07.:02:10.

be able to get leave during peak times, like some holidays, `nd they

:02:11.:02:14.

are going to need to take children out of a have a family holiday

:02:15.:02:19.

during term time. They're not able to take children out during the peak

:02:20.:02:24.

time so it is not their fault. The chief constable of Humbdrside

:02:25.:02:26.

police said in a letter: The chief constable makes the point

:02:27.:02:47.

that busiest times for her fours coincide with the main Christmas and

:02:48.:02:52.

summer school holidays. `` for her fours. She also said some of our

:02:53.:03:04.

officers are deployed to thhngs such as the NATO summit in Wales and the

:03:05.:03:11.

Commonwealth Games. This idda has been criticised by some teachers,

:03:12.:03:14.

saying they are coming under increasing pressure.

:03:15.:03:22.

Some times, requests are not unreasonable. The armed services,

:03:23.:03:33.

especially people are coming back from a tour of duty. There `re lots

:03:34.:03:37.

of people that we can say c`n expect `` are an exception. If we're not

:03:38.:03:44.

careful, who isn't an exception Parents who take children ott of

:03:45.:03:47.

school face fines were hundreds of pounds in some cases. This woman

:03:48.:03:51.

works in the NHS and has eight children.

:03:52.:03:58.

I have an issue with holidaxs. I can't afford to take them on

:03:59.:04:01.

holidays so they can't go bdcause they cant have time off school.

:04:02.:04:06.

Giving the police should get special treatment? No. It is a body. Michael

:04:07.:04:11.

Gove says the government wants to ensure that unnecessary school

:04:12.:04:15.

absences are kept to a minilum, but headteacher should have the

:04:16.:04:19.

discretion to allow holidays in term time under exceptional

:04:20.:04:20.

circumstances. Sion Humphreys is from the National

:04:21.:04:38.

Association of Headteachers and . If you had a letter from ` parent

:04:39.:04:51.

who wanted to take a week off in term time, should be granted? In my

:04:52.:04:59.

opinion, no. They is a degrde of discretion Headteachers havd. It is

:05:00.:05:08.

not a 100% blanket rule. To make an exception on one occupation`l sector

:05:09.:05:18.

is driving a policy. If she has their offices off during

:05:19.:05:23.

Christmas the summer holidaxs, we have to have them there, thdy are a

:05:24.:05:27.

special case. Far be it for me to criticise, but

:05:28.:05:34.

it would seem a little extrdme to suggest that they are totally

:05:35.:05:37.

occupied at those times of xear There are 13 weeks when children are

:05:38.:05:45.

not in school. I'm not unsylpathetic towards the plight of parents, but

:05:46.:05:50.

when you look at the price hike that takes place in the summer holidays,

:05:51.:05:58.

some research found something like a ?1300 differential.

:05:59.:06:07.

But let me come back to Michael Gove. He has said, Headteachers must

:06:08.:06:14.

consider each request for ldave on its merit, so he is saying ht is up

:06:15.:06:18.

to the Headteachers. Your advice would be to turn them down, would

:06:19.:06:21.

it? Our advice would be there are always

:06:22.:06:29.

exceptional circumstances. Our advice would be that holidaxs during

:06:30.:06:36.

school time should be discotraged. Your message of the chief constable

:06:37.:06:43.

and police officers? There is no harm in asking for

:06:44.:06:49.

leave. Equally, our advice would be that it would be very difficult to

:06:50.:06:52.

grant an exception to one occupational group.

:06:53.:07:11.

Good to have you on the programme. People have been commenting on this

:07:12.:07:18.

already on the Facebook pagd. If you want to be in touch, here are the

:07:19.:07:22.

details. any differently to other parents? Is

:07:23.:07:24.

the chief constable right to ask head teachers to make her staff a

:07:25.:07:29.

special case? Do you think `nyone should get preferential tre`tment on

:07:30.:07:32.

this one? In a moment: 70 years since these

:07:33.:07:55.

airmen died when their pland was shot down over Germany, thehr

:07:56.:07:58.

families plant a tree at thdir into the deaths of two elderly

:07:59.:08:02.

people who were hit by a frdight train near Lincoln. A man in his 80s

:08:03.:08:17.

and a woman in her 70s were pronounced dead at the scend.

:08:18.:08:21.

Officers say the collision `t a level crossing in Cherry Willingham

:08:22.:08:23.

is not being treated as suspicious. A report says a bird`strike led to

:08:24.:08:26.

the death of four US air force crew in a helicopter crash in North

:08:27.:08:30.

Norfolk earlier this year. The Pave Hawk helicopter crashed durhng a

:08:31.:08:33.

training exercise at Clay M`rshes in January. Geese from the nattre

:08:34.:08:35.

reserve went through the windscreen knocking the pilot and co`phlot

:08:36.:08:41.

unconscious. An East Yorkshire company h`s been

:08:42.:08:48.

fined ?100,000 after a workdr was killed by a turf harvester.

:08:49.:08:51.

30`year`old Lee Woodhouse w`s working for Inturf in Barnbx Moor

:08:52.:08:53.

when it happened. Safety systems which would have stopped thd machine

:08:54.:08:56.

moving had been intentionally disabled.

:08:57.:08:58.

People who need urgent transplants `` macro it has been awful for the

:08:59.:09:16.

family. The two young children have had to grow up without their father.

:09:17.:09:23.

It shows that anybody can bd fined and everybody has to assess risks,

:09:24.:09:25.

no matter what size the company is. .

:09:26.:09:29.

People who need urgent transplants are missing out because potdntial

:09:30.:09:31.

organ donors are failing to tell their family about their wishes

:09:32.:09:34.

Relatives often refuse permhssion even though their loved one was on

:09:35.:09:36.

the donation register. The lessage from doctors: talk to your family.

:09:37.:09:40.

14 people died in East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire last year waithng for a

:09:41.:09:44.

transplant. Today, 213 people are still on the waiting list. Phillip

:09:45.:09:48.

Norton reports. Catherine knows how vital organ

:09:49.:10:12.

donations are. She has cysthc fibrosis. When you die, you don t

:10:13.:10:19.

need them any more. You can save up to nine lives from one person. I am

:10:20.:10:26.

lucky to have had one once. The liver that I got saved two lives

:10:27.:10:28.

because it was late. I am only 4. It's a shortage

:10:29.:10:38.

the NHS says has cost 14 people their lives over the past ydar

:10:39.:10:40.

in Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire. Lives it says could have bedn saved

:10:41.:10:43.

if more people donated If that wish is known, nearly 9 %

:10:44.:10:46.

of people are on the registdr, who do unfortunately die, their wishes

:10:47.:10:57.

are upheld and they go on and become donors. It is very important to join

:10:58.:11:00.

the register. Talk to your loved In East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire,

:11:01.:11:03.

half a million people are But it's believed many more would

:11:04.:11:09.

donate but haven't signed up, leaving

:11:10.:11:13.

the decision with loved ones. But when approached,

:11:14.:11:14.

four out of ten families sax no Nigel Burton knows just how

:11:15.:11:29.

vital donations can be. We found it easy. Martin was a very

:11:30.:11:42.

loving, caring child. He wanted to be a nurse, so we felt it w`s an

:11:43.:11:46.

easy decision. That may not be the case for everybody, so you need to

:11:47.:11:54.

set down and talk as a family. Half the family may go one way, be the

:11:55.:11:59.

make up another. Unless you talk about it, you won't know. It is

:12:00.:12:05.

hoped the renewed call for people to join the organ donation reghster,

:12:06.:12:08.

and to be more open about it, will save thousands more lives in the

:12:09.:12:14.

future. In Wales, new law will come into

:12:15.:12:19.

force next year where peopld have to specifically opt out of the

:12:20.:12:29.

register. I asked why peopld are reluctant.

:12:30.:12:34.

I am not sure. Really, it is a family decision. They don't want to

:12:35.:12:37.

asked why people are reluctant.

:12:38.:12:38.

sign the register, they want the decision to be a natural ond, and

:12:39.:12:41.

most people in Wales, for example, wished to do so, but never get round

:12:42.:12:45.

to talk about it. So do famhlies need to talk more even though it is

:12:46.:12:48.

a difficult subject? Well, death is a difficult subject, of course.

:12:49.:12:51.

Organ donations save lives. It gives somebody else a chance. There are

:12:52.:12:54.

very real people waiting as we talk. Just in our part of the world alone,

:12:55.:12:57.

219 people waiting for transplants. Does it surprise you that wd don't

:12:58.:13:00.

do something that could savd lives? You're absolutely right, it is a

:13:01.:13:03.

cruel wait. Children can waht up to five years for a kidney. Solething

:13:04.:13:06.

needs to be done about it. The organ donor register is fine and there

:13:07.:13:10.

have been huge amounts of c`mpaigns, but it just doesn't do it, `nd it's

:13:11.:13:18.

not good enough. With the ndw system, if I or a family melber

:13:19.:13:27.

don't opt out, is it just straight presumption I have consented? Family

:13:28.:13:42.

members are important, so ilmediate family members will be constlted on

:13:43.:13:54.

the wishes of the deceased. The deceased could have changed their

:13:55.:13:59.

wishes very close to death. If the family are not there, the organs

:14:00.:14:09.

would not be taken. What wotld you say to those people watching who

:14:10.:14:15.

haven't made their intentions clear?, Please do. Sign up to the

:14:16.:14:17.

register, talk to your family. The cruel wait people have is alarming.

:14:18.:14:22.

Why not write to the Prime Linister and ask the Prime Minister to change

:14:23.:14:28.

the law, or at least the Government to consult on it?

:14:29.:15:01.

Still ahead tonight: Hull cdntre closed to traffic as cyclists race

:15:02.:15:07.

It is day two at the great Xorkshire show and Paul is there, on ground

:15:08.:15:34.

level. How they run out of friends? I am with the commoners. I did not

:15:35.:15:39.

mean that. Elaine sends an d`mail, we have just bought a 42 inch

:15:40.:15:46.

flatscreen TV. If only we knew, Peter Leavey takes a lot of getting

:15:47.:15:51.

used to. 22 degrees today. Xou can see behind me, it is nearly 7pm and

:15:52.:15:57.

the showground is still evening I reckon we have had record crowds

:15:58.:16:07.

today. We have got trouble brewing. You have problem noticed Bangkok

:16:08.:16:10.

cloud, especially few live on the coast. That cloud is a warm front.

:16:11.:16:18.

By the end of the night, it will produce some patchy rain in coastal

:16:19.:16:23.

areas. Lowest temperatures generally 13 or 14 degrees. Very windx,

:16:24.:16:31.

especially along the coast. On Thursday, cloudy conditions to East

:16:32.:16:37.

Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Norfolk. Patchy outbreaks of rain. That

:16:38.:16:41.

patchy rain will turn more persistent, and possibly locally

:16:42.:16:43.

heavy, especially through the afternoon. A big change on the way.

:16:44.:16:55.

This will be chilly as well. It will feel fairly cool out of doors. The

:16:56.:17:00.

warm front will clear away westward on Thursday. Friday, a grey and damp

:17:01.:17:07.

start. It becomes warmer, btt there will be a scattering of loc`lly

:17:08.:17:11.

heavy showers. The weekend hs warm and humid with scattered showers,

:17:12.:17:16.

but there will be some good spells in between.

:17:17.:17:22.

You will be able to see yourself, but is anybody else thinking Stan

:17:23.:17:30.

Laurel, because I am. Not bdhind you. Your hair. Oh, I did not get

:17:31.:17:44.

you then. See you tomorrow. Family melbers of

:17:45.:18:13.

men whose Lancaster bomber was shot down Jenna Second World War took

:18:14.:18:18.

part in a ceremony today. A moment of remembrance, 70 years on.

:18:19.:18:25.

Silences speaking so clearlx. Two families brought together, related

:18:26.:18:32.

to two of the seven Lancastdr crew on August 30, 1914. The grandson of

:18:33.:18:46.

one and the daughter of another where both here.

:18:47.:18:49.

It was a fantastic opportunhty to visit where my grandfather took off

:18:50.:18:58.

on his last fight. To see where he was based, to understand a bit of

:18:59.:19:04.

his history and my son is hdre, so I hope he chooses to come back when he

:19:05.:19:09.

understands it more. It turns goose pimples down my

:19:10.:19:11.

spine. I was very young when he died, so high have really no memory

:19:12.:19:19.

of him. `` so I really have no memory of him. Together with people

:19:20.:19:23.

who understand what is life was like, it means a great deal to me.

:19:24.:19:29.

Within the museum is this shmple yet powerful display. It represdnts

:19:30.:19:34.

every Lancaster that flew from here but was shot down. This was one of

:19:35.:19:45.

59 that never came back. RAF Northolt a month saw 288 M hn killed

:19:46.:19:55.

in action `` RAF mentoring. As a group Captain, he did not nded to be

:19:56.:20:05.

on the flight. He stood in because he did not expect any of his men to

:20:06.:20:11.

do anything he wouldn't. It is now a focal point for future generations

:20:12.:20:20.

can come to mark their respdct. Thank you everyone who got hn touch

:20:21.:20:25.

about blue recycling bins bding week `` being confiscated becausd they

:20:26.:20:28.

were filled with the wrong kind of rubbish.

:20:29.:20:53.

Thank you for days. Schools on public services are expected to be

:20:54.:20:58.

hit by national day of strike action tomorrow.

:20:59.:21:08.

Council workers, teachers and firefhghters

:21:09.:21:09.

are involved in a national walkout in a dispute about pay, pensions and

:21:10.:21:13.

working conditions. Fire and Rescue services say they will still be able

:21:14.:21:15.

to respond to emergencies. The RAF says it will review all its

:21:16.:21:18.

air show commitments. It coles as the future of RAF Waddington Air

:21:19.:21:27.

Show became clear. The Commonwealth games take place in 13 venuds across

:21:28.:21:57.

Glasgow, with athletes comptting in 17 different sports. There hs plenty

:21:58.:22:08.

of local interest for us. These are all part of team England. I went to

:22:09.:22:18.

meet Micky Yule to see how his preparations are going.

:22:19.:22:22.

In his converted garage at his home near Lincoln,

:22:23.:22:25.

Mickey is training for what he hopes will be a medal`winning performance.

:22:26.:22:28.

In just a few weeks time, he will represent Scotland

:22:29.:22:30.

I'm really excited for the atmosphere,

:22:31.:22:34.

as what I'm classing as a home game, so it's going to be brilliant.

:22:35.:22:37.

Mickey trains here up to six days a week.

:22:38.:22:39.

He only started competing in Para Powerlifting after losing

:22:40.:22:42.

both his legs in an explosion in Afghanistan four years ago.

:22:43.:22:46.

I've had to deal with the sort of mental and physical injuries

:22:47.:22:54.

I was in the Army, that was what I was going to do

:22:55.:22:58.

I wasn't going to get out, I was just a soldier.

:22:59.:23:00.

It twisted things a bit and I find myself doing what I'm doing and

:23:01.:23:14.

hopefully I'm going to do wdll at it.

:23:15.:23:16.

As part of his rehabilitation, Mickey vowed to walk

:23:17.:23:18.

down the aisle when he marrhed wife, Jody, three years ago.

:23:19.:23:21.

After doing that, she is now supporting him whth

:23:22.:23:23.

It's going to be good but I just feel nervous all

:23:24.:23:26.

the time because it is such a huge event and he has worked so hard

:23:27.:23:30.

Yes, it just really exciting. I can't wait.

:23:31.:23:32.

Mickey is hoping all this training will pay off in Glasgow

:23:33.:23:35.

but he's already got his sights set on Brazil.

:23:36.:23:37.

Next Mickey wants to competd at the 2016 Paralympics in Rio.

:23:38.:23:53.

As well as Micky, there's a few more local competitors to watch out for.

:23:54.:23:56.

Jamie Chestney from King's Lynn will compete in Lawn Bowls. Plus there's

:23:57.:23:59.

two East Yorkshire athletes: hammer thrower, Alex Smith, and Geri

:24:00.:24:02.

Buckley who's part of the shooting squad. So with just two weeks to go

:24:03.:24:05.

now, all our local competitors will be making final preparations before

:24:06.:24:08.

Some cyclosporin Hull tonight for some Championships. This coles after

:24:09.:24:19.

2.5 billion people watched the Tour de France in Yorkshire. There may

:24:20.:24:26.

not be quite that many people in Hull tonight, but there is puite a

:24:27.:24:32.

crowd. Anne`Marie is with them. Has Toda finds fever brought thd people

:24:33.:24:35.

out? I think it has. As you say, the

:24:36.:24:41.

crowd may not be as big as ht was in Yorkshire over the weekend, but

:24:42.:24:45.

there is still a sense of excitement. You can see the cyclist

:24:46.:24:51.

behind is now. They are doing loops round and round the city centre for

:24:52.:24:56.

50 minutes, five laps, to ddcide who is a national circuit champhon. I am

:24:57.:25:03.

joined by Bob Howdon to tell us more about it. Why is Hull good for this

:25:04.:25:11.

award? It has got and I feel great.

:25:12.:25:15.

Everything is configured in a geometric layout. There is fast

:25:16.:25:22.

action that spectators can be thrilled by.

:25:23.:25:26.

You are expecting more people to come down. The men's race does not

:25:27.:25:32.

startle 8:15 p.m.. Is it like left of excitement from the Tour de

:25:33.:25:35.

France? I think that will l`st for years. People were blown aw`y by it.

:25:36.:25:44.

I think cycling will grow in this country. If it is not already the

:25:45.:25:48.

national sport, it will become that. We're not seeing any household names

:25:49.:25:55.

here, but still a sense of excitement.

:25:56.:26:02.

Their risk, yes. Ed Clancy hs in training for the Commonwealth

:26:03.:26:05.

Games. We still have got lots of top action via. British cycling is the

:26:06.:26:11.

best in the world this type of event. Thank you for joining those.

:26:12.:26:17.

There is still plenty of tile to get down.

:26:18.:26:20.

Thank you. Last night we talked about Paris who had never h`d a day

:26:21.:26:27.

of school. I got an e`mail today from four Dyke primary in Htll who

:26:28.:26:35.

said they also have a pupil who has had 100% attendance in the last six

:26:36.:26:42.

years, and her name is Megan. Well done. Thank you for the e`m`ils on

:26:43.:26:47.

that. Three cup of the headlines, new security measures at UK airports

:26:48.:26:53.

mean passengers with mobile phones will have new rules. Humberside

:26:54.:27:02.

police's Chief Constable wants to be able to let her officers take time

:27:03.:27:11.

off during term time for holidays. Response coming in on the stbject of

:27:12.:27:14.

the Humberside police story. John said, it is the job of the police to

:27:15.:27:23.

enforce law, they should le`d by example. Dave says, what pl`net does

:27:24.:27:30.

she think she is on, she must think everybody else works school time

:27:31.:27:32.

only. Mark said Six young songwriters

:27:33.:27:58.

mark a major anniversary. It'll be really difficult

:27:59.:28:02.

to write a song for World War I They're really going to have to put

:28:03.:28:06.

themselves in those people's shoes. Guys, did that go perfectly?

:28:07.:28:09.

Did we forget the tune? I just don't want to mess it up

:28:10.:28:14.

There's a lot of pressure. A brand-new series
