at what they can do to help reduce the risk of flooding and reduce the

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

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

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

A disappointing weekend in the Super League means both of Hull's


rugby league clubs face a struggle if they're to reach the end of


season play`offs. Hull Kingston Rovers are still in contenthon


but Hull FC need a minor miracle if they're to finish in the top


It is worth every club aspires to be. The grand final. In nearly 0


years of super league, Hull has provided just one finalist. After


the weekend, it does not look like changing any time soon. Hull


Kingston Rovers worth picked off by having the. They went down by 3 `6.


According to their former coach they have home.


I think they will end up six or seven. It is a big jump, but I think


they are capable of getting there. Hull FC lost a high`scoring


encounter to one of their ndarest rivals in the table, Salford. Could


this have cost them a play`off chance? The league table dods not


make great reading. I think most people would not have


anticipated Hull and Rovers to be around that six, seven, eight spot.


To see them outside heading into the final stretch is a surprise.


They both aspiring to get into the top places. Six games to go, and the


experts agree that Hull's shde both need a change.

He flew in both world wars `nd on one occasion he even survivdd a


mid air collision at 10,000 feet. What's more he did all this


having lost a leg while fighting in the trenches in 1916. His


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


gallantry. fighter that Pilot Officer Sydney


Carlin would have flow during the first world war. It's hard to


imagine that this plane, made of wood and linen, would have been one


of Britain's frontline fighters It's been descibed as the Spitfire


of WW1, capable of dealing with any opposition at that time. And it was


in one of these that Sydney fought ten victories and won the


distinguished flying cross `s part of 74 Squadron. Here's Ian Reed from


the Yorkshire Air Museum. You cannot underestimate thd heroism


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


parachutes. Over 9000 airmen were killed in the First World W`r,


mostly in terrible circumst`nces. When Sydney lost his leg during a


dog fight. his colleagues nhcknamed him Timbertoes. He's thought to be


the RAF's only pilot with a wooden I would like to see something like a


street named after him are ` plaque on his birthplace, something of that


nature, maybe a school named after him. There are lots of ways in which


local communities can celebrate such people.


With the centenary years of the First World War upon us, it could be

libraries decision was made by the north`east Lincolnshire cabhnet of


eight councillors. On the stbject of flooding, somebody says, thd rivers

solutions but would rather send it overseas. But if the reference to


overseas aid which we talked about last week.


That says, wouldn't it make sense for the water supplies to m`intain

those and for watching. Havd a nice evening. Join me later. Goodbye
