Hundreds of protestors have turned out in Beverley to call
for an end to wind turbines being built in East Yorkshire.
The Government says they are needed to reduce carbon emissions
But protestors at the march say the area already has enough.
Enough is enough. No more wind turbines. These campaigners in
Beverley took their message to the council this morning. We have said
we are in favour of wind turbines, but there must be a balance. We
don't want to industrialise the region. There are representatives
from 32 villages here today. The council says they RM ally to the
cause and not an enemy. Whichever way you look at it, this policy...
David Davis says his government is doing what it can to give local
people more of a say. Until last year, five out of six wind farms
were allowed an appeal. Know it is about half which is much more
sensible. That means if you go to appeal with a reasonable argument,
you have a chaps. Protesters say they expect their council to keep
fighting those who submit applications.
And they will be taking an in`depth look at the issue of onshore wind
It is the first housing complex of its kind in the East Riding and
But finally ten people with special needs have moved
into their own purpose built apartments so they can live
This 42`year`old man has always been looked after by his parents. Now in
their late 60s, they admit that caring for someone with his level of
special needs is getting much harder. His needs are many and
faded. It is fair to say that if somebody is not within 24 hours a
day, his life would be in danger. The dream has always been friendly
to live independently but with support. I couldn't bear the thought
of him being in a home. He is a quiet person. He needs lots of
space. It has been a seven`year SLORC. This 1's muddy field has been
transformed into ten purpose`built flats for adults with special needs.
While he will be encouraged to do as much as possible for himself, he
will still get round`the`clock support from a team of carers.
Families like the Watsons have been the driving force backing the
project. And they have had a lot of support and advice from the council.
This is the only one in the East Riding at the moment. There are
others in West Yorkshire. At the moment, we are looking at scene we
can replicate this system elsewhere in East Riding. It might have taken
seven years to get this arrangement in place, but Lee says it is very
worthwhile. I am happy. Like Mac now it is hoped that this level of care
can be replicated elsewhere in the region.
Hundreds of people have turned out to see the emergency services
The Rescue Day event features simulated emergencies like these,
and organisers say it serves a number of different purposes.
Today is the biggest safety event of its type in the world. This is about
people having a fantastic day but taking away the key safety messages
to allow families to survive certain incident types.

After what had been a fine day, more in the rush hours this afternoon. We
have had a yellow weather warning in force for showers. They will
continue over the next couple of hours. The showers could be sundry
in nature. We will see the return of sea fog and mist for the coast and
the hills. It will be humid. Cloudy start tomorrow. And improving
picture by the afternoon. Sunny spells in store Monday.
We are back tomorrow afternoon at 5:50pm. Have a good night.
We are seeing thunderstorms developing. Some of these will stay
with us well on into the evening to be replaced with outbreaks of rain
later in the night. The rain we had heading into western Scotland and
Northern Ireland and spreading east across the UK. There are some
heavier bursts. Coast and hill fog around and a warm muggy night to
come. Tomorrow we start with cloud. Damp in places. Many of us will see
brighter skies arrive. There will be showers around. Light ones for Wales
West earn England.
