Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

Improving care and out of special measures, but the health secretary

We recognise the areas we nded to focus on and we have started at

work. Cutting the cost of school leals to

parents. The elastic band craze which nearly

:00:30.:00:44.

blinded a seven`year`old box. Cat lovers

:00:45.:00:47.

in Lincolnshire lay claim to having The Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt

:00:48.:00:52.

has told BBC Look North that the right to bring three local hospitals

:00:53.:01:10.

OUT of special measures. Thd trust The trust that runs Grimsby,

:01:11.:01:13.

Scunthorpe and Goole Hospit`ls has been under close government scrutiny

:01:14.:01:18.

for a full year because of higher than average death rates.

:01:19.:01:41.

And even though inspectors say there And even though inspectors say there

:01:42.:01:44.

are improvements some local GPs are improve within six months or face

drastic action. More from hhm in a Hospitals Trust to improve within

:01:52.:01:55.

six months or face drastic `ction. for particular praise by thd Care

:01:56.:01:58.

Quality Commission and the Hley There have been really good. We

:01:59.:02:11.

probably came within a whisker of being outstanding.

:02:12.:02:15.

But other units across the trust fared less well.

:02:16.:02:21.

While Goole hospital was rated "good" overall, the hospitals in

:02:22.:02:23.

both Scunthorpe and Grimsby both "require improvement" according to

:02:24.:02:25.

the CQC. Inspectors have iddntified 21 areas where improvements must now

:02:26.:02:28.

be made. Among them staff shortages are still an issue and more must be

:02:29.:02:34.

done to ensure the recruitmdnt of "sufficient qualified, skilled and

:02:35.:02:38.

experienced staff." Work is also needed to review the consistency of

:02:39.:02:40.

care, in particular the high dependency unit at the Dian`

:02:41.:02:45.

Princess of Wales hospital, which was rated "inadequate." And the

:02:46.:02:50.

skills and experience of st`ff working with children in A should

:02:51.:02:53.

be reviewed to meet national recommendations.

:02:54.:03:02.

We have started to take acthon in those areas. In our critical care

:03:03.:03:10.

units, we are investing ?590,00 in developing and extending our high

:03:11.:03:13.

dependency unit. Robert Jaggs Fowler is the medical

:03:14.:03:16.

director for the North Lincolnshire commissioning group. Last month he

:03:17.:03:18.

raised concerns about 10 cases of alleged poor patient care. He says

:03:19.:03:21.

the hospitals need to be kept under Visitors to Grimsby

:03:22.:03:34.

Hospital today though seemed I found them smashing. I can't fault

:03:35.:04:02.

them. Stuff was good, food was good, the care was good.

:04:03.:04:05.

I found them smashing. I can't fault them. Stuff was good, food was good,

:04:06.:04:09.

It's been a difficult few ydars for staff at these hospitals ` but

:04:10.:04:12.

managers insist real improvdments are now under way.

:04:13.:04:14.

I asked the government's He`lth Secretary ` Jeremy Hunt ` why when

:04:15.:04:17.

there are still issues with the North Lincolnshire and Goold Trust

:04:18.:04:19.

if it was right for it to come out of special measures.

:04:20.:04:33.

It is a decision that has bden made by somebody independent. He said he

:04:34.:04:39.

thinks it has got the leadership capable of taking it forward. I

:04:40.:04:44.

think it is good news. Lincolnshire needs more support. If you compare

:04:45.:04:51.

Lincolnshire with North Lincolnshire, they both havd the

:04:52.:04:56.

same overall ratings, but one stays in special measures and one doesn't.

:04:57.:05:01.

That is difficult to understand Special measures is really `bout the

:05:02.:05:06.

leadership in a hospital. Lots of hospitals have issues with this or

:05:07.:05:09.

that element of the care thdy are giving, but it is about the

:05:10.:05:12.

conference the chief inspector has that there is leadership whhch is

:05:13.:05:18.

able to guide the trust to ` better place. He does have that confidence

:05:19.:05:22.

for North Lincolnshire and cool He still remains to be convincdd when

:05:23.:05:26.

it comes United Lincolnshird. It comes United Lincolnshire. He does

:05:27.:05:28.

think that progress has certainly do. I visited the hospital `nd I

:05:29.:05:34.

think the staff have done a terrific job. What if the hospitals don't

:05:35.:05:40.

improve soon? The most you can extend special measures by hts six

:05:41.:05:45.

months. He has given that shx`month extension. After that, therd are

:05:46.:05:53.

some very drastic options. We hope it won't get there. He said today he

:05:54.:06:00.

was optimistic that even trtst he had given extensions to would be

:06:01.:06:03.

able to come out of special measures by Christmas. Some local doctors

:06:04.:06:10.

working there and not happy with the trust and are thinking, thex told

:06:11.:06:15.

us, of not buying their services. Does that worry you? We are in an

:06:16.:06:22.

age of transparency. The big difference between what used to

:06:23.:06:27.

happen and what happens now is at staffs, we said we don't want a

:06:28.:06:32.

system where secretly, insiders know there are problems but the general

:06:33.:06:38.

public doesn't. The fact we are being transparent about our

:06:39.:06:41.

performance in hospitals is creating a big incentive for them to raise

:06:42.:06:47.

their game. I hope by doing that, the hospital will regain thd

:06:48.:06:53.

confidence of local GPs. So we have one trust in special measurds, one

:06:54.:06:57.

out more it's me tell. Prestmably, you would like to pay tribute to

:06:58.:07:00.

some of the staff who have been under such scrutiny? Absolutely

:07:01.:07:05.

I've visited both trust and bad stuff in both of them. I thought

:07:06.:07:11.

there was a real enthusiasm and determination to turn those trusts

:07:12.:07:14.

around. Staff are working vdry, very hard. We would like to pay tribute

:07:15.:07:23.

to them,, check them and sax we re supporting them `` congratulate

:07:24.:07:27.

them. Thank you for your tile. Plans for a direct rail service

:07:28.:07:42.

from Cleethorpes to the caphtal Free school meals could be

:07:43.:07:51.

re`introduced for all primary The city council is looking first

:07:52.:07:54.

at halving the price improving children's concentration.

:07:55.:07:59.

But one economist says it would be a waste of money. Crispin Rolfe has

:08:00.:08:14.

more. By September, the council w`nts

:08:15.:08:38.

children to pay just 50p for meals. At the moment, it is ?1, whhch is

:08:39.:08:44.

the lowest in the country. Hf we get agreement, we can take it down to

:08:45.:08:48.

50p. But ultimately, you hope to take it down to free? I don't think

:08:49.:08:53.

the previous programme should have stopped. It achieved very good

:08:54.:08:56.

results in a short time. It was meant to have an effect over 20 or

:08:57.:09:01.

30 years. The council wants to introduce the subsidy for

:09:02.:09:03.

eight`year`olds to 11`year`olds in September, as free school mdals are

:09:04.:09:11.

brought in nationally for children aged five years old to seven.

:09:12.:09:27.

Parents ended up picking up the cost, which is estimated to be 400

:09:28.:09:33.

per pupil per year. The only decent meal a lot of them

:09:34.:09:36.

are getting so I think it is a good idea.

:09:37.:09:38.

Their public can't afford it but it would be helpful to a lot of

:09:39.:09:43.

parents. We already offer a free bre`kfast

:09:44.:09:49.

club, and we have seen concdntration levels increase. Hopefully, if they

:09:50.:09:59.

reduced the price of school meals, more children will take up the offer

:10:00.:10:03.

and our results will get better Critics argue free school mdals

:10:04.:10:07.

haven't been shown to improve health or attendance.

:10:08.:10:11.

At a time we are still runnhng huge budget deficits, I am not clear it

:10:12.:10:18.

would be a priority to roll out free school meals to all pupils.

:10:19.:10:23.

That is an accurate parents, pupils and teachers will find hard to

:10:24.:10:28.

swallow. The challenge is whether the council can really afford to

:10:29.:10:31.

serve free school meals instead of just part paying for them.

:10:32.:10:34.

Do you support the council halving the price of school dinners to 0

:10:35.:10:37.

pence and eventually making them free? Or do you agree with the

:10:38.:10:44.

economist that it's a waste of money and is the current price of ?1 cheap

:10:45.:10:48.

enough? Here are the contact details.

:10:49.:11:12.

The latest unemployment figtres for East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire show

:11:13.:11:15.

the number of people out of work in both areas has fallen. Across

:11:16.:11:18.

Yorkshire and the Humber 16,000 people left the jobless reghster

:11:19.:11:20.

last month ` leaving 222,000 people out of work. In the East Midlands

:11:21.:11:24.

which includes Lincolnshire the jobless total fell by 30,000,

:11:25.:11:31.

The Bishop of Hull is moving after 16 years in the city to become the

:11:32.:11:44.

new Bishop of Hereford. The Right Reverend Richard Frith said he will

:11:45.:11:47.

A mum from Cleethorpes is w`rning that the latest children's craze `

:11:48.:12:03.

called loom bands ` can be dangerous after her son was hit in thd eye

:12:04.:12:07.

Some schools are even banning them and doctors are giving advice

:12:08.:12:11.

They are quite simply tiny colourful elastic bands, but they've captured

:12:12.:12:19.

the imagination of children and some very famous adults. Loom bands can

:12:20.:12:25.

be twisted into bracelets, necklaces. Someone even man`ged to

:12:26.:12:30.

create this dress. It was while trying to make some sandals with his

:12:31.:12:34.

older brother that seven`ye`r`old Kyle from Cleethorpes ended up

:12:35.:12:37.

My brother let go by accident. And it went in your eye? I was petrified

:12:38.:12:54.

because he needs an operation on his eye. I would like to see a warning

:12:55.:12:58.

saying, adult supers `` adult supervision.

:12:59.:13:02.

Loom bands dominate the website Amazon's best`selling toys' list. It

:13:03.:13:04.

didn't take me long to find a wide selection on sale in Hull.

:13:05.:13:10.

I have just bought three different packs. They'll all have conflicting

:13:11.:13:45.

risk, they could cut off thd blood supply and that could be dangerous

:13:46.:13:48.

because a finger could get gangrenous and drop off. Isn't it

:13:49.:13:53.

common sense? It is. I think we see more of it because it is a craze and

:13:54.:13:55.

everybody is doing it. It's hoped Kyle's eyesight will be

:13:56.:13:58.

fully restored once he's had surgery. Carlie says loom b`nds are

:13:59.:14:01.

now banned from her home and she New figures show more women are

:14:02.:14:04.

others are extra careful. New figures show more women are

:14:05.:15:19.

taking up jobs in farming. @nd this is the oldest cat in the world?

More sunshine for Peters town. It will become very warm. Lovely bridge

of high pressure. Through Friday and Saturday, we soak up some w`rm,

:16:14.:16:19.

humid air from France. That leads to quite a high risk of thunderstorms

:16:20.:16:29.

during Saturday in particul`r. A right old mess, but there whll

:16:30.:16:31.

hopefully be bright and sunny spells. Some intense downpotrs. This

:16:32.:16:43.

is a cold front currently bringing in a narrow band of rain across East

:16:44.:16:48.

Yorkshire and western parts of Lincolnshire. That will continue

:16:49.:16:53.

south eastwards through the evening. All part become dry with cldar

:16:54.:16:58.

spells. The breeze will be there. Lowest temperatures 13. A lovely day

:16:59.:17:16.

to come. Lots of sunshine around. There is bound to be a bit of

:17:17.:17:21.

Fairweather cloud. A light southerly breeze, perhaps a gentle onshore

:17:22.:17:25.

breeze along the coast. Coastal areas will be cooler than

:17:26.:17:48.

these temperatures suggest. Inland, 29 is possible. Thunderstorls likely

:17:49.:17:54.

on Saturday. You might like to slap me off a

:17:55.:17:57.

little more careful in future because somebody will tell le ``

:17:58.:18:07.

slack me off. Businesses are welcoming

:18:08.:18:12.

a bid to get fast direct direct trains to London from three local

:18:13.:18:15.

towns ` Cleethorpes, Grimsby and Scunthorpe `

:18:16.:18:17.

for the first time since thd 19 0s. Many people

:18:18.:18:20.

in this area have complained the planned ?40 billion high speed

:18:21.:18:21.

rail plans won't help this `rea Connecting Cleethorpes with the

:18:22.:18:34.

capital. Faster, direct trahns are seen as vital for the Humber to

:18:35.:18:38.

attract new business. Plans to resurrect the great North E`stern

:18:39.:18:43.

Railway brand and put on for direct trains a day have gone down well

:18:44.:18:49.

here. We want people to find out where

:18:50.:18:54.

Grimsby is. Not having to mess about on to

:18:55.:18:59.

trains is helpful. At the moment, it takes mord than

:19:00.:19:04.

three hours, and you have to change trains. This new direct service

:19:05.:19:08.

would start a Cleethorpes, stopping only at Grimsby and three other

:19:09.:19:17.

stops. It would cut journey times by up to 20 minutes. A new fledt of

:19:18.:19:24.

high`speed trains would be tsed Target times, about two hours and 45

:19:25.:19:35.

minutes. We see significant and fits in driving south towards th`t area.

:19:36.:19:43.

This manager says poor transport links can be off`putting.

:19:44.:19:54.

It is very neglected. It is important that we concentrate on

:19:55.:19:58.

getting an improved line on the South bank.

:19:59.:20:00.

It would restore that directing from a seaside towns to the capital for

:20:01.:20:06.

the first time since the 1980s. For those heading west to Manchdster,

:20:07.:20:12.

they could soon see a reducdd service. That is because tr`nsplants

:20:13.:20:20.

express service is underused. This man needs fast links to big cities.

:20:21.:20:28.

We have to be to meet peopld, and to go and see our partners and

:20:29.:20:32.

suppliers. If approved, this service could be running by 2017.

:20:33.:20:51.

The number of female farmers is rising. Amanda White has bedn at the

:20:52.:20:57.

Driffield show. What evidence is there that women are the future of

:20:58.:21:02.

farming? Bishop Burton College was hdre

:21:03.:21:05.

today. It has campuses in Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire If

:21:06.:21:09.

you look at their enrolment figures, three times a numbdr of

:21:10.:21:13.

young women are studying to a level standard than five years ago. The

:21:14.:21:19.

number studying agriculture at degree standard has doubled. Women

:21:20.:21:24.

were very involved in activhties here today. It looks like

:21:25.:21:28.

traditional man's work, but Angela is the farmer here. There is always

:21:29.:21:34.

a good team behind every wolan as well. It is all about teamwork, and

:21:35.:21:40.

I think women are very good multitaskers, you get a gre`t sense

:21:41.:21:43.

of achievement through farmhng and that is why so many women are coming

:21:44.:21:47.

into the industry. Angela w`s not alone. At the Driffield show, women

:21:48.:21:53.

are clearly hands`on. 6000 came into agriculture in the last year. It is

:21:54.:21:59.

estimated there are 22,000 women farmers across the UK. It is no

:22:00.:22:04.

longer the hard physical slot it used to be. Technology make it much

:22:05.:22:11.

more possible for a woman to do it on the same basis as a man. Women

:22:12.:22:16.

have been farming for gener`tions, doing the work without the glory.

:22:17.:22:24.

This woman is a beef farmer and the first woman to be elected to the

:22:25.:22:29.

National Farmer's Union. Wolen have always been involved in

:22:30.:22:32.

agriculture, but now, we're probably seen more women on industry boards

:22:33.:22:40.

with a high profile. I think as a society, we are more interested in

:22:41.:22:44.

what women are doing. That hs good news for 16`year`old Leah, because

:22:45.:22:48.

her heart and her head appohnting her to farming. I think there is

:22:49.:22:52.

more opportunities chorus and people respect is, and there are a lot of

:22:53.:22:58.

women farmers who battled through stereotyping and everything to be

:22:59.:23:04.

where they are today. I really want to be one of those people.

:23:05.:23:09.

It seems the Driffield show is the setting for a quiet revoluthon.

:23:10.:23:15.

In late rain shower has caused a sudden exodus from the showground,

:23:16.:23:19.

but that has been a feeling of optimism here, I'm not just amongst

:23:20.:23:25.

women, but people are been saying that the future feels right. Thank

:23:26.:23:26.

you. England's most decorated

I can smell burning. Of course, you may wonder about

:24:37.:24:40.

the secret of Maddie's long life. And as you may have guessed,

:24:41.:24:43.

she has lots and lots The oldest ever cat came from

:24:44.:25:15.

Austin, Texas, living to be 38. The problem for Maddie is proving how

:25:16.:25:18.

old she is, but that is not only problem, because another contender

:25:19.:25:25.

has worked through the cat flap Pinky. She has documented proof that

:25:26.:25:33.

she is 28 years old. I thought, we have got one here who is 28 years

:25:34.:25:39.

old. She lives in the garden, in the greenhouse, she doesn't bother

:25:40.:25:44.

anybody. Will you put her n`me forward? We could put it forward,

:25:45.:25:54.

yes. Pinky beat Maddie by four years. And just look at her

:25:55.:25:59.

excitement? As for Maddie, no hard feelings when you get anothdr egg

:26:00.:26:01.

for being on the television. And we did ask earlier for xou to

:26:02.:26:05.

let us know if you had a contender for oldest cat Carol Nix sahd on our

:26:06.:26:08.

Facebook page: She's 27 and has been part of our

:26:09.:26:25.

family since she was weeks old. There we are. Thank you for that,

school dinners. Clare says, my son goes to school in east riding and it
