And that is all from us. There is more throughout the evening on the

:00:00.3:59:59

BBC News channel. Now Good evening and welcome to

:00:00.:00:00.

BBC Look North. Anti`wind farm campaigners say

:00:00.:00:00.

East Yorkshire has reached We are concerned about the

:00:00.:00:25.

encroachment of these monstdrs on the horizon.

:00:26.:00:29.

A yachtsman feared missing in the North Sea has been found

:00:30.:00:32.

Final flight ` is this the last time the Vulcan will be seen

:00:33.:00:37.

On the buses ` How drivers from East Yorkshire

:00:38.:00:45.

It has been a warm and humid day. How is it looking tomorrow?

:00:46.:01:05.

An East Yorkshire MP has told Look North that he would put a stop to

:01:06.:01:09.

any more wind turbines being built on shore, despite his Government

:01:10.:01:13.

David Davis, who represents Haltemprice `nd

:01:14.:01:18.

Howden, will speak with anth`wind farm protestors who are org`nising

:01:19.:01:23.

They're calling on the Government to halt the `pproval

:01:24.:01:29.

of further wind farm development, and say that the county has reached

:01:30.:01:32.

We'll be hearing from David Davis in a moment, but first this report

:01:33.:01:37.

from our Environment Correspondent Paul Murphy.

:01:38.:01:41.

In Ellerker village hall, preparations for tomorrow's protest.

:01:42.:01:44.

This is one of many communities earmarked for wind turbine

:01:45.:01:47.

development, an industry with an increasingly controversi`l

:01:48.:01:52.

It's got the highest densitx and our communities are being decim`ted

:01:53.:02:00.

There are already 62 turbinds over 50 metres high in the countx.

:02:01.:02:05.

In addition to the large machines, more than 80 smaller turbinds,

:02:06.:02:14.

less than 50 metres in height, have already been given planning

:02:15.:02:18.

What started here on the proposition to put thred

:02:19.:02:26.

turbines just behind the village has actually expanded now,

:02:27.:02:30.

due to the fact these things are proliferating all over the county,

:02:31.:02:34.

and we have a lot of parishds that have joined in with us.

:02:35.:02:38.

More than 90 turbine applic`tions have been rejected by local

:02:39.:02:41.

councillors, only to be uphdld by national government planners

:02:42.:02:45.

I've lost count of the numbdr of times our decisions, reftsals,

:02:46.:02:49.

have been turned around and have been allowed.

:02:50.:02:53.

That has been deeply frustr`ting for the council and quite costly for

:02:54.:02:56.

the east riding council taxpayer because they are paying to take

:02:57.:03:00.

You only need to walk up into east Yorkshire a bit to get a sense of

:03:01.:03:07.

They are dotted across the landscape.

:03:08.:03:13.

It is fair to say that in the communities where thdy are

:03:14.:03:16.

sited, wind turbines continte to divide opinion.

:03:17.:03:21.

That's because developers offer money as

:03:22.:03:25.

It can run into many millions of pounds and here at Sancton it

:03:26.:03:29.

has included a new village hall and children's play area.

:03:30.:03:33.

If wind farm are going to affect the public greatly,

:03:34.:03:36.

But certainly if not, as we can see, as it has been proved,

:03:37.:03:46.

there can be a lot of benefhts for the community, the vast majority

:03:47.:03:51.

The government says the UK needs onshore wind f`rms

:03:52.:03:56.

in order to reduce carbon elissions and the threat of global warming.

:03:57.:04:00.

But these protesters believd that mission has gone too far in

:04:01.:04:04.

Earlier I spoke to the MP for Haltemprice and Howden David Davis,

:04:05.:04:12.

who'll be talking to protestors tomorrow, and asked if he agrees

:04:13.:04:16.

We've had huge numbers of approvals on wind farms hn

:04:17.:04:24.

East Yorkshire, most of thel over the heads of the council.

:04:25.:04:27.

Most of them were given an appeal and it is pretty clear,

:04:28.:04:30.

so far, until last year, thd appeal authority were given enough credit,

:04:31.:04:33.

As a general question, do you think turbines are a good and relhable

:04:34.:04:45.

Once I was told by somebody who advises the ministry,

:04:46.:04:56.

he said what they needed most on the coldest days of the xear you

:04:57.:05:00.

So, they don't work when we need them.

:05:01.:05:07.

What do you say to the people watching who say these things are

:05:08.:05:10.

You just don't want them in the posh countryside of east Yorkshire.

:05:11.:05:17.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

:05:18.:05:22.

One of my constituents is on antidepressants because

:05:23.:05:30.

Not all the time the wind comes in from that direction.

:05:31.:05:35.

People come there for the qtiet understated...

:05:36.:05:49.

Frankly I wouldn't build anx more at the moment.

:05:50.:05:54.

We have got more than enough to meet the requirements

:05:55.:05:56.

90, I think, is the figure that has gone to government,

:05:57.:06:02.

If you look at the statistics for this year, the first quarter of the

:06:03.:06:10.

year, from about one in six being turned down, it is now a half.

:06:11.:06:13.

Now the government have clocked onto the fact we need to put

:06:14.:06:18.

Because you are a troublemaker, aren't you?

:06:19.:06:25.

I'd been described that way sometimes.

:06:26.:06:28.

I'll be there to speak to them, encourage them.

:06:29.:06:32.

We've got around loads of wind farms,

:06:33.:06:40.

Let us know what you think about this story.

:06:41.:06:52.

Will the campaigners have any success by protesting?

:06:53.:06:55.

Do the Government need to change their policy on allowing wind

:06:56.:06:57.

You can see more on that story on Sunday Politics this Sunday

:06:58.:07:28.

The moment a yachtsmen knew he was safd after

:07:29.:07:37.

Five people who are part of a gang selling illegal red diesel have been

:07:38.:07:57.

sentenced to a total of 19 xears in prison. The conspiracy organised by

:07:58.:08:02.

a pensioner evaded an estim`ted ?5 million in duty and tax.

:08:03.:08:10.

This pensioner of 72 in bad health, carer for those elderly wifd, now

:08:11.:08:18.

:08:19.:08:23.

ringleader who used his connections in farming to organise the hllegal

:08:24.:08:28.

selling of red diesel and sdtting up companies to hide VAT fraud. During

:08:29.:08:34.

sentencing, he kept his eyes at his feet while his honour Judge Jackson

:08:35.:08:38.

described the conspiracy as sophisticated and that he h`d been

:08:39.:08:44.

at the very centre of it. Hd criticised his attempts to pass

:08:45.:08:48.

blame during the trial, describing him as the controller and prime

:08:49.:08:55.

mover. It was a sophisticatdd and persistent crime that went on over a

:08:56.:08:59.

number of years. I think it justified the sentences givdn on a

:09:00.:09:07.

given it mattered towards ?4 million defrauded. Diesel is used in

agricultural machinery and hs cheaper than ordinary diesel found

serving lesser sentences for their involvement. The red diesel was at

:09:40.:09:45.

times cleverly hidden using adapted fuel tanks which appeared to contain

:09:46.:09:51.

regular diesel but when checked contained both. As we startdd to

:09:52.:09:56.

look at the different tanks we were initially thinking it was going to

:09:57.:10:01.

be a small`scale operation, very locally and had no concept of what

:10:02.:10:07.

was going to come. The investigation lasted into three years and we were

:10:08.:10:11.

amazed at the scale that was revealed. This six years th`t hid

starting to recruit for its new multi`million pound

development in Hull. The company announced

:10:33.:10:34.

in March it would be building a wind turbine manufacturing plant at two

:10:35.:10:37.

separate sites in East Yorkshire. Two posts have been advertised

:10:38.:10:39.

for the team to start developing It's expected one thousand

:10:40.:10:42.

jobs will be created. Earlier today a yachtsman from

:10:43.:10:47.

East Yorkshire ` who it was feared had gone missing in the North Sea `

off a distress beacon on his yacht this morning

and was picked up shortly afterwards I'm pleased to say Charles

:11:18.:11:24.

joins me now from his home. How much trouble were you in? The

:11:25.:11:35.

electrics on the boat had gone dead so I couldn't do anything about it.

:11:36.:11:42.

It took me four hours to an`lyse. Were you not worried? No. I wasn't

:11:43.:11:50.

worried. It is a good boat `nd the thing is a boat always takes care of

gather you didn't get any sleep No, not for six days. That is

:12:02.:12:10.

extraordinary. This morning, this begin. What did you do? I attempted

:12:11.:12:18.

to start the boat, because ly master had broken which I couldn't

:12:19.:12:22.

replace. I had nothing for ht. Quite simply, ie attempted to started so I

:12:23.:12:30.

thought, this is silly. In embarrassment I activated its and

:12:31.:12:37.

went to work on the housebo`t which is hard. What did you think this

:12:38.:12:46.

morning when and helicopter approached you? Total surprhse

:12:47.:12:57.

because I didn't know who it was. Were you embarrassed or surprise?

:12:58.:13:04.

Totally embarrassed. I never expected to happen to rely on the

:13:05.:13:12.

emergency services. How do xou feel tonight? When you got home, did your

:13:13.:13:19.

wife give you a ticking off? A bending would not be the right word.

:13:20.:13:28.

I will sleep in the spare room. Your message to fellow yachtsmen. Always

take time to think. If I had thought, I would have got that ended

working. Unbeknown to me, they were looking for me already. A vdry

:13:42.:13:49.

honest answer. It is good to see you back, Charles. You need to get some

:13:50.:13:57.

speed, but you look quite wdll. I haven't shaved either. You look in

:13:58.:14:03.

good shape. Good night, Charles We salute the rescue services who did a

:14:04.:14:07.

great job. Leaving Lincolnshire `

is this the final flight And the East Yorkshire bus drivers

becoming stars of the small screen. Tim Paulus took this

:14:17.:14:29.

of a Steam loco at the Lincolnshire Let's get the forecasts. Many things

:14:30.:14:51.

on this weekend. It has been quite humid today, much is the sale

:14:52.:14:56.

tomorrow. Tomorrow morning we start off on a cloudy note, but it will

:14:57.:15:01.

brighten up as we had Thursday, because of this week 's front. In

:15:02.:15:10.

between the two fronts, tomorrow we should see some good spells of

:15:11.:15:15.

sunshine. Today has been fine. It has been mostly dry. There has been

:15:16.:15:20.

some spells of warm sunshind but it has been humid. There has bden some

:15:21.:15:24.

cloud roll in from the codes. It will continue to do so this evening

:15:25.:15:31.

and overnight. A muggy feelhng too tonight. Temperatures no lower than

:15:32.:15:37.

14 degrees. Tomorrow morning the sun will rise at 4:46am, setting at

:15:38.:15:48.

9:30am. So, a bit of early start, feeling uncomfortable tonight.

:15:49.:15:53.

Tomorrow morning we start to get a break from the west, so we will see

:15:54.:15:59.

clouds breaking with warm spells of sunshine. As it comes, it could

:16:00.:16:03.

trigger some showers. They will be few and far between but there is

:16:04.:16:10.

that risk. Temperatures tomorrow we'll get to 24 degrees. Just ever

:16:11.:16:16.

so slightly cooler along thd coasts. You can see the front furthdr out to

:16:17.:16:21.

the west. That will show its hand as we head through tomorrow evdning.

:16:22.:16:26.

Cloud will increase from thd west as we head through tomorrow. Wd have

:16:27.:16:31.

the rain tomorrow and into Sunday. It will brighten up and it will be

:16:32.:16:38.

highs of 21. Have a good wedkend if you have something planned. If you

:16:39.:16:43.

have any pictures you are proud of, send them in.

:16:44.:16:48.

It's three inches long but the time it saves is eqtivalent

:16:49.:16:51.

to 24 nursing shifts each d`y across three local hospitals.

:16:52.:16:53.

A new digital key being used to get at the drugs at Goole, Grimsby

:16:54.:16:56.

and Scunthorpe hospitals is saving hours of nurses' time every day

:16:57.:16:59.

They are the first in country to trial the system which

:17:00.:17:05.

Our Health Correspondent Vicky Johnson has more.

:17:06.:17:08.

In most hospitals when nurses need to get into

:17:09.:17:11.

the drug cupboards they havd to find the person in charge of the keys.

:17:12.:17:14.

This means hours of nurses' time is wasted every day.

:17:15.:17:18.

But in Scunthorpe it's a different story.

:17:19.:17:21.

These electronic keys have revolutionised the way staff gain

:17:22.:17:25.

Every nurse who's going to need one during their shift is alloc`ted one,

:17:26.:17:47.

across the wards that will give us the equivalent of having 24 extra

:17:48.:17:50.

Nurses can be going to the drugs cupboards up to 50 times

:17:51.:17:54.

a shift, so easy access is benefiting them and their p`tients.

:17:55.:18:00.

You get quality time with your patience rather than jtst

:18:01.:18:04.

Now we have our own it is life changing.

:18:05.:18:10.

The new system has improved drug security too because each kdy

:18:11.:18:14.

generates its own computerised audit trail, detailing who ht is

:18:15.:18:18.

assigned to, which cupboards have been opened and how long.

:18:19.:19:45.

Hundreds of people have been at RAF Waddington today, for what could be

:19:46.:19:48.

the last time that a Vulcan bomber ever takes off from the station

:19:49.:19:53.

Waddington's runway will be out of service for the next year, while the

:19:54.:19:57.

Vulcan's engines are due to reach the end of their lives in 2015.

:19:58.:20:02.

Our reporter Jake Zuckerman was there.

:20:03.:20:05.

For RAF Waddington and the Vulcan bomber it was a historic morning.

:20:06.:20:10.

At the viewing area crowds began to gather, many had travelled

:20:11.:20:13.

For some their connection to the Vulcan goes back more than half

:20:14.:20:18.

I used to see it flying abott all of the time, and I suppose ht is

:20:19.:20:27.

We have come down from Pontdfract so it was an early morning.

:20:28.:20:35.

I will be amazed if I don't feel a bit emotional

:20:36.:20:38.

It is the last time it ever goes out of here.

:20:39.:20:42.

Vulcan was delivered to RAF Waddington in 1960

:20:43.:20:45.

and spent much of its operational life in Lincolnshire.

:20:46.:20:48.

It was finally grounded in 0993 becoming the last Vulcan to leave

:20:49.:21:05.

RAF service, but in 2007 the aircraft took to the sky

:21:06.:21:08.

once more after a huge fundraising effort paid for its restoration

:21:09.:21:10.

Since then it has been a highlight on the airshow circuit.

:21:11.:21:13.

But this could well be the last time it takes off from Waddhngton.

:21:14.:21:16.

Next year it will still be flying but Waddington will be shut, so you

:21:17.:21:20.

may see her in the overhead but it certainly won't be landing here

:21:21.:21:23.

Unfortunately at the end of 201 , although we have airframe lhfe left,

:21:24.:21:26.

The engine has cycled out by the end of them.

:21:27.:21:32.

These days nobody services or rejuvenate old vintage jet dngines.

:21:33.:21:38.

As the crowd looked on, 558 taxied to the take`off,

:21:39.:21:41.

The Vulcan returns for one final fly`past.

:21:42.:22:02.

A salute to the crowd and to the station that for

:22:03.:22:05.

Beverley's Kyle Edmund is through to semi final of the

:22:06.:22:21.

Kyle, nearest the camera, beat Luxembourg's Neils Deshgn,

:22:22.:22:28.

who is ranked nearly a hundred places above him, 6`4 6`4

:22:29.:22:31.

In the semi final Kyle will medt second

:22:32.:22:37.

The second seed beat Lincoln's Dan Cox in straight sets in another

:22:38.:22:42.

Hull Kingston Rovers travel to Headingley to take on Leeds Rhinos

:22:43.:22:51.

Rovers beat leaders St Helens by 40 points to 10 last Sunday.

:22:52.:22:55.

It's Chris Chester's second game in charge as the Robins' boss.

:22:56.:22:58.

We just hope we can take thhs confidence and belief into Friday's

:22:59.:23:10.

BBC Radio Humberside will h`ve commentary of the match tonhght and

:23:11.:23:19.

If you use the buses in Hull, there's

:23:20.:23:27.

a good chance you might see your driver on the television tonight.

:23:28.:23:30.

The staff of East Yorkshire Motor Services will star in a doctmentary

:23:31.:23:35.

following life on the buses around Hull and further afidld.

:23:36.:23:40.

They've been speaking about how the show has been affecting them

:23:41.:23:43.

There are certain things th`t let you know where you are

:23:44.:23:50.

in the world and the colours of the east Yorkshire motor services

:23:51.:23:53.

bus company let you know imlediately you are in Hull and the east Riding

:23:54.:23:57.

But tonight we see their true colours in

:23:58.:24:00.

Of course most of the action and of course the drama comes

:24:01.:24:13.

It is here where we see Rod in action, getting lost.

:24:14.:24:23.

I have a catchphrase now whhch is on the TV programme.

:24:24.:24:28.

I get it from work colleaguds, not just the drivers,

:24:29.:24:36.

but everybody in the garage and from the passengers as well.

:24:37.:24:42.

And George is finding the word is spreading quickly too.

:24:43.:24:51.

The girl in the hairdressers asked me when the programme is gohng on.

:24:52.:24:56.

It is surprising how many people know about it.

:24:57.:25:00.

We were hoping it would be kept under wraps.

:25:01.:25:03.

I can't even go in the kebab shop because they're

:25:04.:25:07.

You get to see everything, the good, the bad and ugly.

:25:08.:25:13.

She thinks I need to lose a bit of weight now.

:25:14.:25:17.

They say it adds pounds on, the camera, it has added kilos to me.

:25:18.:25:21.

Opening such a well`established family business to a TV doctmentary

:25:22.:25:23.

company and a national audidnce is a risk, but owner Peter Ship thinks

:25:24.:25:28.

We run a pretty good ship hdre, if you would pardon the pun.

:25:29.:25:36.

The staff are great, generally speaking.

:25:37.:25:40.

It will show people what sole of the problems are

:25:41.:25:42.

in running a bus company and I don't think we have anything to lose.

:25:43.:25:52.

It is the character of the people that work herd that

:25:53.:25:54.

meant the entire series has been dedicated to the one companx.

:25:55.:25:58.

The question is will they enjoy watching it.

:25:59.:26:15.

Let's get a recap of the national and regional headlhnes

:26:16.:26:20.

Tens of thousands more people could be allowed weight loss surgdry

:26:21.:26:22.

on the NHS to tackle an epidemic of diabetes.

:26:23.:26:25.

Anti wind farm campaigners claim the East Yorkshire countryshde is on

:26:26.:26:27.

A muggy start to the day with a lot of cloud around, however cloud

:26:28.:26:34.

will eventually break with some warm sunny spells developing.

:26:35.:26:36.

Risk of the odd isolated, thunderstorm towards the end of

:26:37.:26:38.

We had that report on the whnd turbines earlier on. Pete s`ys wind

:26:39.:27:02.
