how much money do you think needs to be spent by the government? There
was a report in 2012 that b`sically said to keep standing still, we need
to spend the next ?50 million a year on the 2011 budget. We have not done
that and we are just creeping up with the money the government
announced for this year. We're just approaching that fought this year.
We need to raise our game significantly. We were told ?3.

more do you want the governlent to spend? That is a huge figurd. It is,
but it is a national priority in our view. It is something that hs going
to get worse, due to changing weather patterns and also if we
build more houses, more parts, we have infrastructure that is getting
old, how drainage systems nded replacing, this is stuff th`t if we
don't deal with, it will increase the problem. We need a refldction on

name was Sydney Carlin and he was from Hull. Not much is known
about him in his home City but one local historian has now
written a book about his exploits. Emma Massey reports.
100 years ago, Sydney Carlin was on the Western Front fighting for his
country. He was a long away from his roots ` Spring Bank in Hull, where
he was born, one of seven and son of a local businessman. He fought in
both World Wars, and military historian Don Chester says he's an
authentic local hero who should be remembered.
He is undoubtedly one of thd bravest men you are ever likely to
encounter. He served from d`y one of the First World War right through to
the end. He suffered for wotnds He was decorated three times for

of some of these men who went up in the skies, mostly without
