BBC Look North. Shortening the school summer

holiday, to improve education I'm hoping we will see an

:00:13.:00:22.

improvement in the engagement of their children.

:00:23.:00:23.

Police say a man wanted in connection with a Bridlington

:00:24.:00:25.

murder is also a suspect in a sexual assault case.

:00:26.:00:28.

There's a big rise in the number of people waiting longer to be

He's never been on a train, tube or bus.

:00:32.:00:37.

The Lincolnshire farmer taking his first trip to London.

:00:38.:00:48.

Over time, people coming and going, it is very different.

:00:49.:00:57.

More sunshine to come over the next few days, the details follow

:00:58.:00:58.

shortly. A Lincolnshire school has become one

:00:59.:01:05.

of the first in the country to break away

:01:06.:01:08.

from traditional summer term times. White's Wood Academy in Gainsborough

:01:09.:01:12.

says it will help improve learning but also mean that parents can take

:01:13.:01:15.

children on cheaper holidays away The Government's welcomed the change

:01:16.:01:19.

saying it wants every school to have Parents face being fined if they

:01:20.:01:27.

take children out of lessons. The last day of school at White's

:01:28.:01:33.

Wood Academy in Gainsborough. But next year the term will end

:01:34.:01:38.

a week earlier to allow families to It is helpful. Cheaper holidays mean

:01:39.:01:57.

more money to spend on the kids. I am happy with it. It is normally so

:01:58.:02:06.

expensive. It'll be so much cheaper and better for. The trust that runs

:02:07.:02:12.

the school has changed next year's term dates so holidays are shorter

:02:13.:02:17.

and they fall outside the standard holiday period which means that

:02:18.:02:21.

parents will be able to buy a family holiday without the inflated prices.

:02:22.:02:28.

Should be a school's concern to get it cheaper holiday? We started off

:02:29.:02:34.

with looking at a different model, then we consulted parents to see

:02:35.:02:40.

what changes they want. We are always asking parents. This is their

:02:41.:02:44.

school, what would they like? It was also about the children being tired

:02:45.:02:50.

near Christmas and about as not having a long summer break and the

:02:51.:02:53.

lack of learning because the children drop quite a lot of

:02:54.:02:55.

learning during that time. And the difference between

:02:56.:03:00.

school holiday and non`school The cost of taking a family of three

:03:01.:03:02.

to Mallorca in August is ?1680 whereas in May the same holiday is

:03:03.:03:07.

?670, a thousand pounds less. But one travel agent warns that

:03:08.:03:13.

starting the summer holiday early to In theory, it is a great idea.

:03:14.:03:29.

Whether it comes off in practice, I am not sure. Airlines are clever.

:03:30.:03:37.

Generally speaking, if a date starts to become popular, even if there is

:03:38.:03:41.

no particular reason for it, prices can go up.

:03:42.:03:42.

This school says changing the term times isn't just about holiday

:03:43.:03:44.

The thought of saving money is bringing a smile to parents' faces

:03:45.:03:54.

here. Julie Davies is a representative

:03:55.:03:57.

of the National Union of Teachers Do you think other schools

:03:58.:03:59.

should follow this example? If it's a win`win situation? I'm not

:04:00.:04:13.

sure they are all quite true. I have three children. At various times,

:04:14.:04:18.

they have been at different schools. If all schools set their own

:04:19.:04:22.

holidays, you can have three schools were different holidays and that

:04:23.:04:28.

could turn into a nightmare. I take out when this came up that thinks it

:04:29.:04:33.

is wrong to lose the six`week long summer holiday as teachers like it?

:04:34.:04:38.

Yes, they do. As teachers that worked 50 to 60 hours a week, that

:04:39.:04:43.

is on average, they are exhausted at the end of term. And children need a

:04:44.:04:50.

holiday, too. You think you need that six weeks? I think children do,

:04:51.:04:59.

too. Credit to leave `` could lead to better attendance?

:05:00.:05:05.

It can't be proven, this is a new situation. I agree if it does, it is

:05:06.:05:12.

a good thing. I am not sure that shortening school holidays will do

:05:13.:05:21.

that. In favour or not in favour? I know that six weeks sounds like a

:05:22.:05:26.

long holiday and perhaps it is. But I think everybody should have longer

:05:27.:05:31.

holidays. Teachers are in a different world. Yellow if you

:05:32.:05:40.

compare `` If you compare it to other countries, teachers don't have

:05:41.:05:47.

long holidays. People say we always have to compete, why don't we have

:05:48.:05:54.

more holidays like they do abroad? Are you happy that the price of

:05:55.:05:57.

getting away to the sun is beginning to dictate school times? No. ?1000

:05:58.:06:08.

for a price hike because kids are a holiday, it is disgraceful. And

:06:09.:06:13.

people are saying it is good for education. Which is it? Thank you

:06:14.:06:17.

very much for coming in. Can changing term times

:06:18.:06:19.

help children learn? What else should be done to ease

:06:20.:06:21.

the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. The hunt for a man wanted

:06:25.:07:07.

in connection with the murder of a Bridlington guesthouse owner is

:07:08.:07:10.

now in its fifth day and police believe John Heald is

:07:11.:07:14.

still in South Yorkshire. Detectives say they are

year old following an appeal last Bei Carter was stabbed to death

:07:22.:07:25.

in Bridlington on Friday night. Sarah Walton has been

following this story. Sarah, what have officers been

saying today about the search for Police say the search is now focused

:07:37.:07:48.

on an area of land near Barnsley. There have been 200 reported

:07:49.:07:53.

sightings of him, but police say many have been discounted. We are

:07:54.:07:57.

told he is wanted in connection with a targeted serious sexual assault

:07:58.:08:04.

that took place about a week before the murder of Bei Carter. Police are

:08:05.:08:09.

trying to do get a set of keys that are missing from the guesthouse.

:08:10.:08:18.

They are room keys that look similar to this,

:08:19.:08:20.

It's thought John Heald took them with him, but could have thrown them

:08:21.:08:25.

away somewhere in Bridlington or over in the South Yorkshire area.

:08:26.:08:27.

Crimestoppers has put forward a ?5,000 reward for information

:08:28.:08:29.

But a warning from the police is still in place ` this man is

:08:30.:08:34.

potentially very dangerous, he shouldn't be approached and if you

Thank you very much indeed and we will follow that story.

Ten athletes from East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire will join thousands

:09:26.:09:28.

of people competing from across the world.

:09:29.:09:30.

Our sports reporter Simon Clark is there.

:09:31.:09:32.

What medal hopes do we have over the next 11 days?

:09:33.:09:41.

It is hard to put an exact figure on it as there are many intangibles,

:09:42.:09:51.

but ten athletes I hear from our area and I would be surprised if we

:09:52.:09:56.

come away with fewer than three. `` are here.

:09:57.:10:04.

most. Thanks to his grandfather, he is playing hockey for Scotland and

:10:11.:10:15.

proud to be wearing a kilt. We have been working hard for the last three

:10:16.:10:21.

or four months, training in Scotland. We have trained on that

:10:22.:10:29.

pitch. This is the best squad Scotland have had. And mixing with

:10:30.:10:34.

the home crowd and support, we hope for our best ever finish. This is

:10:35.:10:42.

Glasgow Green, home of the hockey. Our first competitor will be in

put in a good performance. This is the village where the competitors

thrower, is here. You want to do your best that the major events. We

for their preparation. `` used. Her best friend are hoping for medals. I

:11:32.:11:38.

am happier now what I see on paper each week. It is a great position to

:11:39.:11:43.

be in. You don't want to go in thinking it is not quite for you. It

:11:44.:11:48.

has been great. Ten athletes from East Yorkshire are aiding the glory.

:11:49.:11:51.

Many could win coveted medals. How does the atmosphere compare

:11:52.:11:56.

today to that surrounding the It has been fantastic. The weather

:11:57.:12:08.

has helped. We were driving on a main routes here and passed to

cyclists. I would like to take you to the Clyde and show you the

:12:15.:12:19.

polythene bags, but they are actually part of the pyrotechnics

:12:20.:12:23.

that you will see soon. If you see an explosion by the SECC, you know

:12:24.:12:30.

what it is. Still ahead, a final decision is

:12:31.:12:36.

made on what will happen to the site of Louth's former capital markets.

:12:37.:12:41.

And he has never been on a train, tube or bus, the Lincolnshire farmer

:12:42.:12:44.

enjoying a day out in London. A green weather forecaster and an

:12:45.:13:08.

orange newsreader, I thought it was cruel.

:13:09.:13:17.

I will show you how hot it has been. Kings Lynn, 27 Celsius. Other places

:13:18.:13:23.

struggling with low cloud, 16 Celsius. Here is tomorrow's

:13:24.:13:35.

headline. A great start, warm sunshine breaking through. Generally

:13:36.:13:41.

speaking, the coastal low cloud should be a a lot thinner. High

:13:42.:13:48.

pressure in charge. You can see the low cloud and missed that actually

:13:49.:13:53.

anywhere on the satellite picture, it has been shrinking, but for many

:13:54.:13:59.

it is beautiful with lots of sunshine around. Cloud and missed

:14:00.:14:05.

will extend inland. South Lincolnshire may well stay clear.

:14:06.:14:09.

Temperatures coming in of 13 or 14 Celsius. The sun will rise at two

:14:10.:14:21.

minutes past five. A great start in many places. Low cloud will break up

:14:22.:14:26.

pretty quickly and the Lincolnshire coast should have a better time of

:14:27.:14:30.

it. Much of the East Yorkshire coast should clear, so most will become

:14:31.:14:39.

sunny. Like all moderate east would wind. `` eastward. We're looking at

:14:40.:14:49.

top temperatures of 25 Celsius. Another beautiful day to come.

:14:50.:14:52.

Friday is similar with a great start. Sunday, fresh air on the way

:14:53.:14:58.

from the North with more cloud and a risk of showers.

:14:59.:15:07.

No matter how desperate you are, you can't be as bad as Alex Deakin who

:15:08.:15:09.

has treated in. Don't forget to...

:15:10.:15:25.

I'm not green, but you are still orange.

:15:26.:15:31.

The number of patients waiting for hospital treatment in

:15:32.:15:34.

East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire has gone up by almost 10,000 people

:15:35.:15:36.

According to Government targets, all patients should be seen within

:15:37.:15:40.

18 weeks after being referred by their GP, but waits

:15:41.:15:42.

Our health correspondent Vicky Johnson has been looking

:15:43.:15:45.

After being referred by a doctor, the Government says you should be

:15:46.:15:49.

But the number of people waiting longer than this

:15:50.:15:52.

has more than doubled at some of our hospital trusts over the past year.

:15:53.:15:55.

Last May, there were 1866 people who'd been waiting too long at

:15:56.:15:58.

At the same point this year that number had almost doubled to 3660.

:15:59.:16:03.

That means out of a total waiting list of almost 38,000 people,

:16:04.:16:09.

Sheila Hall was first diagnosed with anaemia last August.

:16:10.:16:18.

Her GP referred her to the Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals for tests

:16:19.:16:21.

She then spent more than six months waiting for another appointment to

:16:22.:16:29.

You think you have got lost in the system

:16:30.:16:33.

and you do constantly worry that there may be some serious problem

:16:34.:16:36.

Sheila's experience is far from unique.

:16:37.:16:46.

Thousands are kept waiting longer than the Government 's target

:16:47.:16:52.

of 18 weeks from referral to treatment time.

:16:53.:16:56.

Hospital managers say part of the reason for this is

:16:57.:17:02.

They say they are working hard to reduce the backlog.

:17:03.:17:06.

They have also told us that they are now liaising closely with

:17:07.:17:09.

their colleagues in the community to try to change the process by which

:17:10.:17:12.

Ruth Marsden is the vice`chair of the National patient group,

:17:13.:17:18.

Nationally, the Department of Health see waiting

:17:19.:17:25.

For the individual patient, it is an element of their own well`being

:17:26.:17:31.

It is hugely important that if they are told they are having

:17:32.:17:39.

an appointment and it will be within X weeks,

:17:40.:17:41.

Last night, the issue was raised in the House of Commons.

:17:42.:17:50.

4000 patients in East Yorkshire are forced to wait more than 18 weeks to

:17:51.:17:53.

Hospital managers insist they are working hard to improve

:17:54.:17:57.

This isn't a problem particular to our area.

:17:58.:18:02.

Other hospitals across the country are seeing the same increases.

:18:03.:18:05.

It seems to be a combination of rising patient demand, combined with

:18:06.:18:12.

But some of our trusts have now agreed to

:18:13.:18:17.

invest more money on increasing both the number of outpatient clinics

:18:18.:18:19.

Have you been affected by the longer waits for treatment?

:18:20.:18:30.

Perhaps you've been left waiting for results longer than you should have?

:18:31.:18:34.

What do you think should be done about this?

:18:35.:18:49.

It's one of Lincolnshire's longest running planning disputes, but the

:18:50.:18:52.

future of the cattle market site in Louth will become clearer tonight.

:18:53.:18:55.

Councillors are meeting right now to decide whether to sell the land to

:18:56.:18:58.

It's a move that's split the town with some people saying

:18:59.:19:02.

a supermarket is needed for Louth to progress.

:19:03.:19:05.

Others say it could drive out independent shops.

:19:06.:19:07.

Our business correspondent Sarah Corker is outside East

:19:08.:19:09.

Sarah, why has it taken so long to get to this point?

:19:10.:19:20.

It is because over the last five years, there has been fierce debate

:19:21.:19:27.

about how the site should be developed. At the start of the

:19:28.:19:31.

meeting, there was a 4000 strong edition against the supermarkets.

:19:32.:19:38.

Today, it was decision day and about 30 minutes ago councillors voted to

:19:39.:19:45.

approve that sale to Asda. It was described as a momentous but

:19:46.:19:48.

difficult decision made for the benefit of Louth.

:19:49.:19:54.

Louth cherishes its uniqueness. It is largely `` has largely resisted

:19:55.:20:04.

the march of the chain stores. At this green grocers, there is concern

:20:05.:20:10.

that character could disappear if a supermarket giant moves in. I was

:20:11.:20:16.

scared we will lose our identity. We don't want it to stop moving

:20:17.:20:19.

forward, but how many supermarkets does a small town need? The cattle

:20:20.:20:27.

market is only use one morning a week. The district council is

:20:28.:20:32.

purposing to relocate it and sell this land to developers for a

:20:33.:20:37.

supermarket. There were 15 bidders and this afternoon councillors

:20:38.:20:42.

approved the sale to Asda. There were a lot of views amongst members,

:20:43.:20:46.

but there was a vote in favour of the sale. We will go back to Asda

:20:47.:20:52.

and it will be up to them to bring forward a planning application.

:20:53.:20:55.

There are already smaller high`street supermarkets here. The

:20:56.:21:02.

council has an alternative plan and says it will appeal the decision.

:21:03.:21:06.

Keep the cattle market on the current site. People of Louth get

:21:07.:21:13.

the shops that they have not currently got... But some want a big

:21:14.:21:19.

supermarkets or they can get a weekly shop. Yell back they think

:21:20.:21:22.

they're going to get some megastore,. `` they think they are

:21:23.:21:27.

going to get some megastore, but they won't. Due on the supermarkets

:21:28.:21:34.

here? I don't see why not. `` do you. It will bring jobs, I suppose.

:21:35.:21:44.

I am very much against it. I love the little town. The sale is worth

:21:45.:21:49.

up to ?12 million to the council, money says will be spent to improve

:21:50.:21:56.

public services. It is predicted the town will grow

:21:57.:22:02.

by 2000 houses in the next 15 years. The council says it needs a bigger

:22:03.:22:06.

supermarkets. Those in the against camp says it is in and out of town

:22:07.:22:12.

location that will take customers away from the centre. It is not a

:22:13.:22:17.

done deal, what happens next? Asda will have to put in a planning

:22:18.:22:21.

application and only then will we know the size and layout of the

:22:22.:22:26.

store. The council is looking at ways of putting an appeal against

:22:27.:22:29.

the decision so the story is far from over.

:22:30.:22:30.

Thank you. Thousands of people have turned

:22:31.:22:33.

out in Cleethorpes to welcome It's the first time in 28 years that

:22:34.:22:36.

the 2nd Battalion Royal Anglian Regiment have exercised their right

:22:37.:22:40.

to the freedom of the town. Hull City Council has apologised

:22:41.:22:47.

after paddling pools were closed in the hot weather. They will be back

:22:48.:22:52.

in use tomorrow. The council says they were shut for maintenance work.

:22:53.:22:58.

One has been shut for a year after an infection outbreak last year.

:22:59.:23:02.

A Lincolnshire farmer who's barely left his home county has spent the

:23:03.:23:05.

Farmer Wink, who speaks in Lincolnshire dialect, has farmed

:23:06.:23:08.

Today, he boarded a train for the first time to have

:23:09.:23:12.

Our reporter Simon Spark was with him.

:23:13.:23:22.

For most people, getting on a train wouldn't be a big deal. But Pharma

:23:23.:23:32.

Wink is not the most people. He is a traditional farmer. He talks in

:23:33.:23:42.

Lincolnshire dialect. He has rarely ventured further than his

:23:43.:23:46.

birthplace. Today, he is going to London. `` but Farmer Wink is not

:23:47.:23:52.

most people. It starts in first class. We have a special guests with

:23:53.:24:04.

us. Farmer Wink from Lincoln. I like looking after the chickens and pigs.

:24:05.:24:14.

It is in your blood. I have been on the farmer and it has been good.

:24:15.:24:18.

Getting used to the number of people was the first hurdle. I never

:24:19.:24:23.

thought there would be so many people, touring and fro`ing.

:24:24.:24:29.

Unbelievable really. `` coming and froing.

:24:30.:24:47.

He then scaled the Shard. Before long, he had quite a

:24:48.:24:51.

following. Then the following didn't just grow, it went national.

:24:52.:24:57.

We have done the train and the underground, now we are on BBC Radio

:24:58.:25:09.

2. This is one of the best days. It is great to have our friend here. I

:25:10.:25:14.

don't know where to start, because this city is crazy. Trying to work

:25:15.:25:22.

out what Farmer Wink makes of it, I do not know. I'm excited to meet

:25:23.:25:29.

him. Then a tour and a bit of whether presenting. Note the name.

:25:30.:25:37.

If that was not enough, Downing Street. This was not just a day, it

:25:38.:25:42.

was a moment in history. How would you sum it all up? Marvellous. What

:25:43.:25:55.

an end to the day. There we are, Farmer Wink's big day

:25:56.:25:56.
