Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:17.:00:18.

The cost of injuries at school ` councils here pay out more than ?1

:00:19.:00:22.

Schools aren't prepared now to do things they did outside

:00:23.:00:25.

the main curriculum because there are risks associated with it.

:00:26.:00:29.

The East Yorkshire church that's said no to having a woman vhcar

:00:30.:00:35.

Tesco tell shoppers in Immingham we're not abandoning plans

:00:36.:00:37.

Bomber crews gather in Lincolnshire more than 70 years

:00:38.:00:47.

More than ?1.3 million has been paid out by councils in East Yorkshire

:00:48.:01:19.

and Lincolnshire for children injured at school.

:01:20.:01:24.

Parents have successfully sted local authorities for trapped fingers

:01:25.:01:28.

in a desk, falls in the plaxground and sunstroke on a school trip.

:01:29.:01:32.

Some argue there's a lack of supervision in schools

:01:33.:01:34.

while others say a compensation culture is damaging education.

:01:35.:01:36.

Our correspondent Sarah Corker has more.

:01:37.:01:38.

Playground games and the bulps and grazes that come with them are

:01:39.:01:45.

all part of growing up but some accidents at school are proving

:01:46.:01:49.

In five years, payouts and legal fees have cost

:01:50.:02:01.

Including in Lincolnshire, ?12,000 to a pupil

:02:02.:02:04.

injured when a classmate fell onto them from a climbing frame.

:02:05.:02:07.

?8000 for a child hit in thd face by a hockey stick.

:02:08.:02:10.

In Hull, more than ?1000 was paid out to a pupil hurt playing tag

:02:11.:02:14.

But it cost the council ?14,000 in legal fees.

:02:15.:02:27.

It is to the notice of what is happening. I think it can only

:02:28.:02:41.

damage the experience of chhldren at school.

:02:42.:02:49.

At the Oasis Academy in Immhngham there are strict health

:02:50.:02:51.

The principal says its sometimes solicitors who push

:02:52.:02:54.

There is an opportunist approach perhaps where there's been

:02:55.:03:00.

Really, through contacting parents who may

:03:01.:03:12.

have intially been accepting that these accidents do happen, being

:03:13.:03:14.

encouraged to pursue a clail and try to look into a blame culturd.

:03:15.:03:17.

Back in the '60s, children played on concrete pipes

:03:18.:03:19.

and glass windows, provided by the council, as a low`cost play ground.

:03:20.:03:22.

Health and safety would stop that now.

:03:23.:03:40.

We got quite a depressing mdssage from many schools, particul`rly

:03:41.:03:44.

state schools, that schools aren't prepared now to do the things they

:03:45.:03:47.

did outside the curriculum because there are risks associated with it.

:03:48.:03:49.

I'm very concerned that we're robbing children of their childhood.

:03:50.:03:52.

There were some unusual payouts ` sunstroke on school trip,

:03:53.:03:54.

post falling on child's head, a burnt finger from a laptop.

:03:55.:03:57.

So is this a compensation ctlture or health and safety failings?

:03:58.:04:04.

A personal injury lawyer in Grimsby told me these claims are rare

:04:05.:04:07.

Slips and trips ` aren't thdy just a part of growing up and being a kid?

:04:08.:04:12.

Not necessarily when it's somebody else's f`ult

:04:13.:04:14.

And that slip or trip could be prevented

:04:15.:04:16.

and that slip or trip has pdrhaps caused a fairly significant injury.

:04:17.:04:19.

While regulations have made schools arguably much safer

:04:20.:04:22.

in recent decades, they may also have made them less adventurous

:04:23.:04:25.

Gill who's written about risks children take.

:04:26.:04:39.

I think it is undeniable th`t is a much greater worry about chhldren.

:04:40.:04:46.

It is about claims and the perception of risk. The figtres seem

:04:47.:04:52.

to suggest that the problem is reducing what is undeniable is this

:04:53.:04:56.

wider anxiety that is leading teachers, parents and counchls to

:04:57.:05:02.

quickly to get too focused on what might go wrong and to forget that a

:05:03.:05:09.

rounded childhood is one whhch children have some freedom `nd can

:05:10.:05:12.

take some responsibility for themselves. At the parents laking

:05:13.:05:25.

the schools are averse to rhsk? At the heart of the problem is this

:05:26.:05:29.

confusion and that we are forgetting what a good sheltered looks like. I

:05:30.:05:36.

can remember just how valuable it is to have some adventures and play and

:05:37.:05:41.

take some risks and learn your boundaries and I think a lot of this

:05:42.:05:46.

problem would be tackled if we just revived that sense of the v`lue of

:05:47.:05:55.

risk and the health and safdty executives have made statemdnts

:05:56.:05:59.

about the value of letting children take risks that it will takd time to

:06:00.:06:09.

turn this around. Are some of the claims such as been burnt bx a

:06:10.:06:12.

computer or hit by a hockey stick acceptable? I do agree that some of

:06:13.:06:20.

the cases sound as if peopld have caved in without taking the court

:06:21.:06:31.

action properly. But the good news is that as more guidance note for

:06:32.:06:40.

the need for a balanced approach and more schools are confident `bout

:06:41.:06:44.

taking their children out in learning environments such `s the

:06:45.:06:48.

forest Alderwood and in public play areas you're actually seeing more

:06:49.:06:52.

challenging and more exciting playgrounds and I'm sure yot have

:06:53.:06:55.

seen some of those in your region because we have realised th`t we

:06:56.:06:57.

have gone too far. We want to hear from you on this

:06:58.:07:03.

story, do you think the 'compensation culture' is a problem?

:07:04.:07:06.

Maybe you think there should be compensation if children get

:07:07.:07:09.

injured? In a moment: Two Lincolnshire MPs

:07:10.:07:40.

get new jobs as David Cameron reshuffles his

:07:41.:07:41.

ministers. In one Spanish, the congreg`tion are

:07:42.:08:09.

insisting that when the pridst leaves he is

:08:10.:09:05.

Some people would say this hs outdated. Not everything has to do

:09:06.:09:09.

with Bates. Belief in God h`s nothing to do with what the times

:09:10.:09:31.

are. ``with dates. Six other churches would be affected `s well.

:09:32.:09:37.

Not all the congregation ard happy with this. Why should they not have

:09:38.:09:55.

a woman priest. I don't think it should be allowed. There ard those

:09:56.:10:04.

that agree that despite this in devoting in favour of women priests

:10:05.:10:08.

that people should be allowdd the right to say no. As a church, we

:10:09.:10:16.

have made a decision for those who cannot accept that ministry to

:10:17.:10:23.

remain in the church and be served by an male priest. It is part of

:10:24.:10:31.

honouring that decision that enables us to do this. This parish has made

:10:32.:10:40.

it clear that women need not apply to Garten. The new rules cole into

:10:41.:11:13.

effect in November and the church will have to reconsider its

:11:14.:11:21.

position. But it is thought that the yes vote for female bishops will

:11:22.:11:26.

encourage women into the cldrgy but it is also thought that any women

:11:27.:11:32.

coming here will not get a job in this place for the next sevdral

:11:33.:11:44.

years. Do you have a view on this? Should congregations be abld to put

:11:45.:11:46.

a block on women priests? The Crown Prosecution Service has

:11:47.:12:03.

confirmed charges have been dropped disturbance at an anti`fracking

:12:04.:12:09.

camp. John Mager who used to be director at East Riding Council `

:12:10.:12:19.

and his wife Valerie, a forler teacher ` were arrested at the camp

:12:20.:12:22.

at Walkington near Beverley while police were escorting lorrids onto

:12:23.:12:25.

the neighbouring gas explor`tion site. The CPS says there was

:12:26.:12:27.

"insufficient evidence." An ASDA supermarket could bd built

:12:28.:12:41.

in Louth if the council votds to sell the former Cattlemarket site.

:12:42.:12:47.

15companies put bids in for the land land after council officials in East

:12:48.:12:50.

Lindsey recommend it's sale. Critics believe a large supermarket will

:12:51.:12:51.

damage local businesses. A signalling fault that caused hours

:12:52.:12:57.

of delays for travellers in and out of Hull last night was causdd by an

:12:58.:13:00.

attempted cable theft. Brithsh Transport Police say they'rd

:13:01.:13:03.

continuing their investigathons today after the cable was ctt at the

:13:04.:13:05.

Hessle Road junction. Hull's ice arena is to closd over

:13:06.:13:09.

the summer holidays because of changes to regulations. The venue's

refrigeration system needs to be replaced. The City Council hs

:13:13.:13:15.

talking to Hull Stingrays Ice Hockey team to find a different venue for

their pre`season preparations. The final stages of work to remove a

:13:18.:13:23.

tidal power generator which had been abandoned in the Humber are

:13:24.:13:26.

underway. It was originally installed to provide electrhcity to

:13:27.:13:28.

power The Deep, but the company behind the project went into

:13:29.:13:31.

liquidation last year. Residents and businesses

and they're halting the opening of Supermarket giant Tesco has

:13:56.:13:59.

navigated its way into most towns and cities ` but

:14:00.:14:02.

in Immingham they're still waiting. Many residents travel more than

deyaled coming to the site until next summer ` a disappointment

:15:00.:15:20.

There's a lot riding on Tesco ` shops surrounding the development

:15:21.:15:23.

Tesco has always been a major player on the high street ` but ovdr

:15:24.:15:31.

the last two years profits have dropped, and they're now opdning

:15:32.:15:36.

But it's still left people concerned about the delay.

:15:37.:15:41.

Despite reassurances, residents just hope the grocer isn't

:15:42.:15:50.

I don't think they will comd. I do not think they will.

And the plan to bring high culture to rural Lincolnshire.

:16:21.:16:37.

At the says that your forehdad and there's not a move.

:16:38.:17:31.

There will be a lot of cloud at times but that is now breakhng up.

:17:32.:17:53.

We will see temperatures coling in at around about 12 Celsius or 1

:17:54.:17:58.

Celsius. That is around 55 Fahrenheit. The sun will rise just

:17:59.:18:04.

before five o'clock in the lorning. High water time will be just before

:18:05.:18:13.

quarter to ten. It will be ` lovely morning with lots of sun and blue

:18:14.:18:16.

sky and it stays bright and warm through the morning and into the

:18:17.:18:20.

afternoon but clouds will thicken and by the end of the day that is a

:18:21.:18:24.

risk of a few sharp downpours especially crossed East Yorkshire

:18:25.:18:29.

and some western parts of Lincolnshire. To the south ht should

:18:30.:18:32.

stay dry and this is where the highest temperatures will bd. It

:18:33.:18:36.

will not be too bad over thd East Riding. It will be 25 degreds in

:18:37.:18:47.

Kingsland, that is 77 degreds fire in height. Thursday looks w`rm with

:18:48.:18:51.

high is nearly up to 80 Fahrenheit but with the warmth and humhdity

:18:52.:18:56.

through Friday into Saturdax is quite a high risk of thunderstorms

breaking out. new jobs in a reshuffle of David

:18:58.:19:13.

Cameron's government. Nick Boles and John Hayes have been to Downing

:19:14.:19:19.

Street this morning to hear about their roles. Our political dditor

:19:20.:19:25.

Tim Iredale is with me now. Tim what jobs has the Prime Minhster

:19:26.:19:32.

given them? Nick Boles Has been given a new role

:19:33.:19:58.

as Minister with responsibility for things such as adult skills and

:19:59.:20:03.

apprenticeships and politic`l commentators always describdd him as

:20:04.:20:07.

part of the inner circle of David Cameron. This will be seen `s a

:20:08.:20:20.

promotion for him. John Hayds Has been a bit of a political agenda in.

:20:21.:20:27.

And is now a senior minister in the Department for Transport so he will

:20:28.:20:31.

have a big say about how much money is spent on new roads and r`il

:20:32.:20:37.

projects and many will argud that the transport infrastructurd of

:20:38.:20:39.

Lincolnshire is largely inadequate so some may say that his largest

:20:40.:20:43.

challenge will be in his own backyard.

They carried out thousands of raids over Germany during the Second World

:20:50.:20:53.

War and today veterans from 106 Squadron in Lincolnshire have

:20:54.:20:56.

gathered for what is likely to be their last reunion. The grotp lost

:20:57.:20:59.

59 Lancaster bombers while based at RAF Metheringham in 1943. Some

:21:00.:21:01.

surviving members of the sqtadron have travelled from as far `s Canada

:21:02.:21:05.

to their former air base. Gdmma Dawson reports.

:21:06.:21:12.

This would have been a familiar sight here ` during the Second World

:21:13.:21:15.

War. But today's flypast by the Lancaster

:21:16.:21:30.

is bringing back memories for the men from 106 Squadron.

:21:31.:21:32.

Alfred who spent three months here in 1944.

:21:33.:21:48.

I liked my time here, even though it was war. The camaraderie with the

:21:49.:21:59.

fellows on the base was trelendous. No matter weather you were Dnglish

:22:00.:22:03.

Canadian, you were all thrown together any pile and you m`de it

:22:04.:22:05.

work and did work. carried out hundreds of raids over

:22:06.:22:17.

Germany. Today the remaining veterans gathered at their old

:22:18.:22:22.

airfield. We were looking at a photograph that

:22:23.:22:43.

was taken in March 1944. Most of them did not make it. I was very

:22:44.:22:53.

lucky. Every year at this thme we have our reunion day.

:22:54.:22:58.

But organisers believe this could be the final time that many ard able to

:22:59.:23:01.

We've had a lot of messages after the National Flood Forum sahd more

:23:02.:23:19.

money needs to be spent protecting homes and businesses across East

:23:20.:23:22.

Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. Skegness was hit by flash floods agahn on

:23:23.:23:24.

Sunday. One hotel in the town says it will now lose thousands of

:23:25.:23:28.

pounds' worth of business. Well, lets take a look at some of

:23:29.:23:30.

your thoughts.Ray in Beverldy says: "The authorities are quick to blame

:23:31.:23:33.

global warming rather than their own maintenance of the drainage systems.

:23:34.:23:36.

We live in the sticks with no mains drainage. We have soak`aways,

:23:37.:23:39.

ditches and dykes to clear the rainwater, and we don't get

:23:40.:23:41.

flooded.Mr Harrison from Bedford says: "I worked for the Rivdr Board

:23:42.:23:44.

for 41 years and we dredged the drains every five years. For the

:23:45.:23:47.

last 20 years, I don't think we ve seen a dredging machine. We've seen

:23:48.:23:50.

machines working, taking wedds out, but not dredging.And Daz suggests:

:23:51.:23:52.

"There is money in flooding. Everybody profits except thd

:23:53.:23:55.

insurers and the property owners who have to make a claim."

:23:56.:24:04.

It's a challenge for many pdople in rural Lincolnshire ` how to get

:24:05.:24:08.

involved in art when your ndarest gallery is as much as a couple of

:24:09.:24:13.

hours' drive away. But a new project is trying to overcome that problem

:24:14.:24:16.

by bringing art to the people. And what better way to do than to put it

:24:17.:24:20.

on a lorry that travels across the whole country. Here's our Arts

:24:21.:24:23.

This is not your average artwork. It is around 40 feet long and has been

:24:24.:24:37.

specially commissioned to travel round by Laurie. There is a

:24:38.:24:45.

particular audience that gods to galleries. `` by lorry. This is the

:24:46.:25:08.

first of ten projects that will be produced to reflect the county of

:25:09.:25:11.

Lincolnshire and bring art of people who live hours away from tr`ditional

:25:12.:25:16.

galleries. There are very fdw galleries and so our approach is

:25:17.:25:22.

rather than spending many mhllions of pounds on building new g`lleries,

:25:23.:25:26.

what we have to do is take the art to world people are so people can

:25:27.:25:39.

engage with it. Some did not give the art a second glance but it

:25:40.:25:46.

turned some heads. My three`year`old is not quite so keen on walking

:25:47.:25:53.

round and art gallery. So h`ving it about you is a nice treat? Xes,

:25:54.:25:59.

wonderful. Looking at something like that is quite nice. This rather

:26:00.:26:10.

unusual artwork will be offhcially revealed in London on Thursday but

:26:11.:26:13.

you may well see it on a ro`d near you for years to come.

:26:14.:26:23.

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

:26:24.:26:25.

Michael Gove is moved from his post as Education Secretary during

:26:26.:26:28.

His job goes to Nicky Morgan ` one of ten promoted women.

:26:29.:26:35.

Local councils have paid out more than ?1 million in compensation

:26:36.:26:38.

A fine bright morning with sunny spells.

:26:39.:26:44.

A cloudier afternoon, with a risk of a few heavy showers.

:26:45.:26:51.

Very warm, with highs around 24 Centigrade (75 Farenheit(.

:26:52.:27:10.

Ian says compensation claims need to be nipped in the bud sooner rather

:27:11.:27:16.

than later. Another viewer says too much blame and too much clahm

:27:17.:27:23.

culture. Andy in Lincoln saxs why not get the patents to sign a risk

:27:24.:27:27.

disclaimer if they do not whsh to sign then they can find another

:27:28.:27:33.

school. Dave says to blame the parents. They are just after the

:27:34.:27:40.

cash. Compensation culture gone mad. We will have some more on this later

:27:41.:27:45.

on. See you later.
