:02:19.:02:20.

found guilty of murder buy ` jury consisting of ten women and two men.

:02:21.:02:23.

There were cries and tears of jubilation in the public gallery

:02:24.:02:26.

But the three defendents showed no emotion whatsoever.

:02:27.:02:29.

Judge Michael Metyer will now call them back to be sentenced

:02:30.:02:32.

on the 11th august, when they will face life in prison.

:02:33.:02:44.

The moments leading up to the attack were caught on CCTV. The three had

:02:45.:02:50.

been partying and drinking `ll might before the attack, leaving Stephen

with 12 injuries to his head, face and neck. If you go around

:02:55.:03:00.

assaulting people, sometimes they can get up and walk away and think

:03:01.:03:04.

nothing of it, but this is ` clear example of what can happen `nd

:03:05.:03:08.

people engage in violent crhme. It is unnecessary. The consequdnces can

:03:09.:03:14.

be devastating, not only for the victims but for the defendants and

:03:15.:03:19.

their families. It is seven months in fear tactic place here, `nd

:03:20.:03:23.

although the verdicts have offered some comfort to the family, they say

:03:24.:03:29.

they are still struggling to come to terms with what happened here. A New

:03:30.:03:33.

Year celebration that turned into a nightmare.

:03:34.:03:42.

A student from Hull brings her campaign for peace in the

:03:43.:03:45.

Campaigners have forced a council in Lincolnshire to go back to

:03:46.:03:50.

the drawing board with its plans to cut library services.

:03:51.:04:00.

A High Court judge today ruled that Lincolnshire County Council's

:04:01.:04:03.

decision to restructure the way libraries are run w`s

:04:04.:04:05.

The plans were supposed to save ?2 million

:04:06.:04:14.

but now the authority is facing a hefty bill to start all over again.

:04:15.:04:17.

Save Lincolnshire Libraries who forced the legal challenge `re

:04:18.:04:19.

After months of campaigning, today was a time for celebr`tions.

:04:20.:04:24.

Deepings Library was one of 30 Lincolnshire County Council

:04:25.:04:32.

wanted to be run by volunteers or face closure.

:04:33.:04:35.

Today, a judge described th`t plan as legally flawed and said

:04:36.:04:37.

Queue jubilation. We have been trying to point out we

:04:38.:04:50.

need the services for our children, for older people, for students, for

:04:51.:04:54.

all aspects of the communitx. Everybody needs libraries, like this

:04:55.:04:57.

The ruling follows months of protests.

:04:58.:05:01.

In June last year, the council said it would be "reviewing"

:05:02.:05:04.

how library services were rtn in an effort to save ?2 million

:05:05.:05:06.

Three months later, and 20,000 people had signed a petition

:05:07.:05:09.

In November, the council revealed 30 libraries could be saved if

:05:10.:05:15.

In December, the council voted through the plans.

:05:16.:05:19.

Campaigners challenged that decision, and today won.

:05:20.:05:29.

This is a great victory for people in Lincolnshire and all over the

:05:30.:05:34.

country who use their libraries regularly, who need their l`b is and

:05:35.:05:39.

who depend upon them. It is a historic decision for the

:05:40.:05:43.

people of Lincolnshire. It hs time they listened to the people of

:05:44.:05:46.

Lincolnshire and delivered what they want.

:05:47.:05:49.

The judge said there were shortcomings

:05:50.:05:51.

Today's decision doesn't me`n the libraries are saved for ever, but it

:05:52.:05:59.

means the council must look again at its proposals and ask people

:06:00.:06:02.

And for now,that's victory dnough for those who opposed the changes.

:06:03.:06:06.

I'm joined now from Lincoln by Richard Wells from

:06:07.:06:08.

So this was unlawful. I guess you need to apologise? We got one aspect

:06:09.:06:22.

of the proceedings wrong, btt there are helpful signs for those. The

:06:23.:06:26.

amount of money we had to s`ve was accepted by the judge, the fact we

:06:27.:06:31.

had a proper statutory servhce was accepted and the impact on community

:06:32.:06:36.

rights. But you misjudged the strength of feeling of the people in

:06:37.:06:48.

the county. We've misjudged Greenwich leisure, and that should

:06:49.:06:52.

have been at more closely as an expression of community intdrest.

:06:53.:07:00.

Why didn't you? We anticipated the legislation was really meant for

:07:01.:07:03.

local people to express intdrest, which we were seeking, but the judge

:07:04.:07:08.

took the view that because they were trust, even though they operate from

:07:09.:07:15.

Greenwich, they... So you dhsmiss them? Well, we did look at them but

:07:16.:07:20.

he thinks we did not look at them closely enough. How much has the

:07:21.:07:24.

consultation and case cost the council so far? The consult`tion was

:07:25.:07:29.

about 100,000 under review `bout ?60,000. So it is taxpayers money,

:07:30.:07:39.

gone down the drain. Not all the consultation is invalid. It is money

:07:40.:07:44.

down the drain. If you had got your facts right, you would not be in

:07:45.:07:49.

this pickle. I think it is right that people are allowed to challenge

:07:50.:07:56.

the local authority. It is not money spent as we would like to. Ht is a

:07:57.:08:02.

process that we should follow. So you are going to start all over

:08:03.:08:05.

again but you want the outcome to be the same. We must look more closely

:08:06.:08:13.

at the Greenwich leisure offer. It may mean going out for proctrement.

:08:14.:08:20.

Greenwich leisure are not necessarily likely to win. We're

:08:21.:08:25.

going to look at the whole judgement. Has it been embarrassing

:08:26.:08:33.

for the council? I think it is unfortunate when things likd this in

:08:34.:08:39.

Dublin court. Very good to talk with you.

:08:40.:08:45.

We would like your views on this story.

:08:46.:08:47.

What's your reaction to the high court's ruling tod`y?

:08:48.:08:49.

Do you think the council should allow Greenwich leisure to run them?

:08:50.:09:17.

A police investigation has begun after a two`year`old boy didd

:09:18.:09:20.

He was taken from an address on Tunnard Street in the town to

:09:21.:09:23.

Diana Princess of Wales Hospital yesterday afternoon where hd died.

:09:24.:09:26.

An inquest has opened into the death of an elderly couple, who wdre hit

:09:27.:09:32.

The court was told Peter Smhth and his wife Betty stood

:09:33.:09:36.

on the tracks even though the driver sounded the train's horn

:09:37.:09:40.

The hearing was adjourned while further investigations are

?10 million of additional ftnding is being given to schools in the area.

The money for North Lincolnshire, Lincolnshire and

the East Riding is to help support education in the worst`funddd

North Kesteven has been namdd as the safest place to live in England

:10:05.:10:09.

The district council says l`test figures

from the Home Office show there were fewer crimes recorded there than

:10:11.:10:13.

A senior Labour politician has defended the party's decision to

:10:14.:10:21.

select its General Election candidate in Grimsby

:10:22.:10:23.

The Shadow Transport Secret`ry Mary Cray says it's important to promote

:10:24.:10:27.

But the move has been criticised by some who say candidates should

:10:28.:10:30.

be selected on merit, whethdr they happen to be a man or a wom`n.

:10:31.:10:34.

If you live in North East Lincolnshire, then you run the risk

:10:35.:10:42.

of bumping into a lot of politicians over the next few months.

:10:43.:10:48.

The constituencies of Cleethorpes and Great Grimsby will be hotly

:10:49.:10:51.

contested in next year's General Election, and that means thd parties

:10:52.:10:54.

will be sending their big gtns to the area to set out their policies.

:10:55.:10:58.

Today, Labour's Shadow Transport Secretary Mary Creagh pledgdd to

:10:59.:11:03.

fight proposals which could see direct rail services between

:11:04.:11:05.

It is a vital economic link for this area, and also that people hn

Manchester should be able to jump on a train and come on holiday to this

:11:23.:11:26.

Grimsby's current MP Austin Mitchell will be stepping down next xear

:11:27.:11:30.

and the Labour has decided that the party's candidate in

:11:31.:11:32.

The shortlist includes the former Cleethorpes MP Shona McIsaac, North

:11:33.:11:36.

East Lincolnshire councillor Ros Jones, Melanie Onn, who's a regional

:11:37.:11:38.

organiser for UNISON Katie Ghose a laywer turned political campaigner.

:11:39.:11:44.

But Labour's decision to implement at all`women shortlist in Grimsby

:11:45.:11:47.

Former Tory minister Neil H`milton and

:11:48.:11:52.

his wife Christine have been touring Lincolnshire this week in the role

:11:53.:11:56.

Great Grimsby is one of UKIP's target seats.

:11:57.:12:06.

One of the great things abott the UKIP candidate is that she was

:12:07.:12:13.

chosen in her own right, not part of the long women short lists, because

:12:14.:12:17.

UKIP don't have anything like that. I think this insulting and

:12:18.:12:22.

demeaning. The Labour Party candidate will have been a result of

:12:23.:12:26.

this ludicrous process, which I think is wrong. Women should be

:12:27.:12:32.

there on the merit. As Christine Hamilton have a point? Well, she is

:12:33.:12:38.

only famous because she is larried to Neil Hamilton, who is falous

:12:39.:12:43.

because he was disgraced. Women short lists show the Labour Party is

:12:44.:12:53.

serious about equality. Offhcially, the general election campaign begins

:12:54.:12:58.

in eight months time, but the war of words is still underway alrdady

:12:59.:13:04.

You might have a view on this story as well.

:13:05.:13:06.

Should parties be using all`women shortlists to select

:13:07.:13:08.

The new ?42 million events venue could be built in Hull.

Hopefully this war is the end of everything.

You've been sending us your thoughts on plans to reintroduce

:19:09.:19:16.

free school meals for all primary school children in Hull.

:19:17.:19:18.

The city council is looking first at halving the cost

:19:19.:19:20.

But critics says there's no evidence the plans will improve

:19:21.:19:24.

It's hoped that more big`nale bands will come to Hull, if plans for

:19:25.:20:06.

a new ?42 million events venue in the city centre get the go``head.

:20:07.:20:09.

The city council's planning a specially designed centre

:20:10.:20:11.

for concerts and conferences ` and a four star hotel ` to be built

:20:12.:20:15.

It also hopes it will creatd 50 new jobs, as Anne`Marie Tasker reports.

:20:16.:20:32.

At the moment it's wasteland surrounded by unkempt buildhngs

:20:33.:20:35.

But Hull City Council wants to turn it into something like this,

:20:36.:20:39.

a purpose`built conference `nd concert venue with the city centre's

:20:40.:20:42.

It hopes it will attract big touring performers that currently

:20:43.:20:57.

There are lots of people who are going to other cities and we are

:20:58.:21:13.

Hull already has a venue of this capacity at the Ice Arena.

:21:14.:21:17.

But the council says promotdrs say a custom built venue,

:21:18.:21:19.

with better technical facilhties, will attract the big name b`nds that

:21:20.:21:22.

The ?42 million development is in addition to

:21:23.:21:55.

the ?25 million plan to rev`mp Hull City Centre announced last week

:21:56.:21:58.

And like that, this new centre will be funded with money that c`n only

:21:59.:22:01.

The plans should be a reality by 2018, just after Hull's City

:22:02.:22:05.

That has got to be a platform from which the city continues to rise.

It's on The Spa in Bridlington where Wallace Hartley performed in the

early 1900s. He became famous after his death for laking

plaque has been unveiled to remember the three summer seasons he spent

:24:08.:24:12.

here. He was a brilliant musician. His career was to go from strength

:24:13.:24:18.

to strength. It took him onto the ocean liners and to his fin`l job,

:24:43.:24:46.

a resident musician in Edwardian Bridlington. He went on to join the

:24:47.:24:53.

famous White Star line but was reluctant to board the Titanic after

becoming engaged. He never returned to his love, or to Bridlington but a

:25:29.:25:32.

He is rendered for the nobldst act of his life, continuing to play as
