The group behind plans for a purpose`built mosque in Lhncoln

:00:07.:00:10.

say they still need to raisd half a million pounds to get it built.

:00:11.:00:13.

Planning approval was given for the mosque in 2012 and the

:00:14.:00:16.

Islamic Association of Lincoln says a project team is now in place.

:00:17.:00:25.

This has been the place of worship for Muslims in Lincoln since 1981.

:00:26.:00:29.

The former Baptist Church holds 60 people, but the community in Lincoln

:00:30.:00:32.

and surrounding areas has grown to around 2,000.

:00:33.:00:37.

Every week, a larger building has to be rented to accommodate people

:00:38.:00:42.

Planning approval was given for a new mosque in the Bootam area

:00:43.:00:45.

of the city in 2012, but only half of what's needed to build it has

:00:46.:00:50.

We still need to raise quite a lot, half a million, at least.

:00:51.:00:56.

A large number of donors are giving something

:00:57.:00:58.

like ?20,000`?30,000, and some people are giving ?1,000 a lonth, so

:00:59.:01:07.

The Islamic Association has spent years trying to get a new mosque

:01:08.:01:11.

In August 2008, the Association was given approval to turn a disused

:01:12.:01:18.

church into one, but just two weeks later it was destroyed by fire.

:01:19.:01:21.

Then in October the following year, plans for a mosque

:01:22.:01:24.

on the same site were turned down because of traffic issues.

:01:25.:01:27.

Not everyone has supported the idea. This protest by the East Anglian

:01:28.:01:29.

Patriots in January was met by a counter demonstration.

:01:30.:01:32.

Zoobare is one of those who has donated money towards the mosque.

:01:33.:01:38.

When I grew up, there was no purpose`built mosque. We were lucky

:01:39.:01:44.

we had this place, but now, having a big purpose`built mosque for our

:01:45.:01:48.

children as they grow up, that is really agreeable for us.

:01:49.:01:55.

The hope now is that people will continue to donate so that the first

:01:56.:01:58.

bricks can be laid for what's been described as a vital building

:01:59.:02:01.

The Labour party has chosen a union organiser for its next parliamentary

:02:02.:02:08.

candidate for Great Grimsby. Melanie Onn was selected to replace Austin

:02:09.:02:13.

Mitchell, who is retiring at the next election.

:02:14.:02:18.

Villagers in East Yorkshire say they're delighted that flood

:02:19.:02:20.

defences are to be strengthened following December's tidal surge.

:02:21.:02:22.

The river walls in Reedness near Goole will be increased in height to

:02:23.:02:27.

bring them in line with other defences in the area, as Sarah

:02:28.:02:30.

During December's tidal surge, the road through Reedness became a river

:02:31.:02:38.

` the flooding blamed on defences that were too low in places.

:02:39.:02:47.

Now seven months on, there are still clear signs of the dalage

:02:48.:02:50.

Geoff's home was flooded to waist`height and he still

:02:51.:02:54.

You look at what's been done in the house and we sit

:02:55.:02:59.

in the caravan and think, wd're just going to get all this done, I hope

:03:00.:03:05.

These are the flood defences that are going to be improvdd.

:03:06.:03:09.

In some places, they'll be tp to a metre higher than they are now.

:03:10.:03:12.

Some of the work will be telporary to shore up the bank for winter.

:03:13.:03:15.

That'll be made permanent when work starts again in 2015.

:03:16.:03:18.

And it's brought comfort to residents here.

:03:19.:03:20.

Even after this terrible evdnt and all that's been said, I think

:03:21.:03:29.

we were a little sceptical as to whether the money was going to make

:03:30.:03:33.

its way from Eton and such`like and make its way up north, and it has.

:03:34.:03:36.

On the edge of the village, signs work is beginning,

:03:37.:03:39.

It's hoped the first phase of the project will be competed by October.

:03:40.:03:51.

At the Commonwealth Games, Lincoln's Lizzie Simmonds mhssed out

:03:52.:03:53.

on a medal in the final of the 100 metre backstroke.

:03:54.:03:59.

The 23`year`old finished in fifth position, and was back in the pool

:04:00.:04:02.

She was the second fastest qualifier for

:04:03.:04:05.

And Sophie Allen from Lincoln is also swimming in a final tonight.

:04:06.:04:09.

She was the seventh fastest qualifier for the 200 metre medley.

:04:10.:04:17.

Time now for the weather with Kawser Quamer.

:04:18.:04:19.

Good evening. We've had a mixture of sunshine and scattered, heavy

:04:20.:04:22.

showers today. As we head through the evening, we'll see thosd showers

:04:23.:04:25.

easing for a time, though there is some more in the way coming later in

:04:26.:04:28.

the night, perhaps in the northern part of our area. We are looking at

:04:29.:04:32.

clearer skies, too. Less hulid than it has been. Temperatures still 14,

:04:33.:04:35.

15 degrees but we lose some of that humidity. Tomorrow, we are looking

:04:36.:04:38.

at some sunshine around. Thd risk of a few isolated showers, most likely

:04:39.:04:41.

over higher ground, but still feeling warm. Temperatures reaching

:04:42.:04:43.

the low 20s, especially further inland.

:04:44.:04:52.

I will be back at 10:25pm. Have a good evening.

:04:53.:05:11.

Topped temperatures down 5 degrees on yesterday and much lower humidity

:05:12.:05:15.

so the second part of the weekend has been much more comfortable. The

:05:16.:05:19.

coming few days, if we get sunshine it will be pleasantly warm. It's not

:05:20.:05:22.

a completely dried story because they will be showers dotted around

:05:23.:05:26.

and it should be that bit cooler at night. The satellite sequence from

:05:27.:05:30.

today shows some thunderstorms across the southeastern corner and a

:05:31.:05:33.

lot of fine weather that into the West of Scotland this cloud has been

:05:34.:05:35.

producing some fairly heavy bursts of rain and will continue to do so.

:05:36.:05:39.

A bit of a breeze associated with that. It will sit south through this

:05:40.:05:43.

evening and into the overnight period getting down into northern

:05:44.:05:45.

and central parts of Wales by the end of the night by which stage we

:05:46.:05:50.

will see showers cropping up in the southeastern corner. Overnight

:05:51.:05:52.
