First look at the morning papers on the BBC News Channel in just is a

:00:00.:00:00.

few minutes too. Now Good evening. The leader of East

:00:00.:00:13.

Riding Council is warning Hull to back off over its plans to expand

:00:14.:00:19.

the city. Stephen Parnaby says it looks like a potential hostile

:00:20.:00:23.

take`over. But Hull has hit back saying it needs to expand into

:00:24.:00:26.

places including Hedon, Cottingham and Hessle because its tight

:00:27.:00:28.

boundaries are holding back development. Our business

:00:29.:00:37.

correspondent Sarah Corker reports. The East Riding's pretty market

:00:38.:00:40.

towns and green spaces encircle urban industrial Hull. City leaders

:00:41.:00:45.

say it needs space to grow and want the boundaries redrawn. Now the two

:00:46.:00:49.

neighbouring councils are locked in a war of words. It is a hostile

:00:50.:00:54.

takeover, or a potential one, by the City Council. And there is

:00:55.:00:57.

absolutely no need for it. Isn't this petty squabbling? Well, we

:00:58.:01:03.

didn't start it. Um, and of course, we need to work together, and we do

:01:04.:01:05.

work together. One idea Hull City Council wants to

:01:06.:01:11.

consider is expanding its boundary into the East Riding. Including

:01:12.:01:13.

Hessle, Cottingham and Hedon. Another possibility, a single

:01:14.:01:18.

authority covering the whole of East Yorkshire. There is a dearth of

:01:19.:01:22.

developable industrial land in Hull. I mean, it was an issue with

:01:23.:01:27.

Siemens. We have had to do a lot of work to free up sufficient land near

:01:28.:01:31.

the Siemens development to make it viable. Is this a hostile takeover?

:01:32.:01:36.

Or is this a land grab? Er... The East Riding have been asked to

:01:37.:01:42.

take part in the commission's work. And the only answer we've had so far

:01:43.:01:45.

is the Councillor Parnaby shouting at us from Beverley. It is land on

:01:46.:01:49.

the outskirts of the city that is at the centre of this debate. Hull City

:01:50.:01:53.

Council owns this site near Hedon. And there are plans for an energy

:01:54.:01:57.

park. But it is in East Riding's boundaries. And those living in

:01:58.:02:00.

Hedon don't want it to be swallowed up by the city. We are a separate

:02:01.:02:04.

little market town here. And that is how it should be. I think the

:02:05.:02:08.

services will get worse. The rubbish won't be empted as regular. I think

:02:09.:02:12.

they just want us for the money. Really. But could a change help both

:02:13.:02:16.

councils prosper? If you can increase the overall number of

:02:17.:02:19.

employment opportunities, it is possible you could also get

:02:20.:02:21.

spill`over effect. That might mean you could have benefits to both

:02:22.:02:25.

sides of the boundary. Hull has now set up a commission to look at its

:02:26.:02:29.

boundaries. The East Riding is holding a referendum in September.

:02:30.:02:32.

But ultimately, the government has the final say.

:02:33.:02:38.

I'm joined by the MP for Beverley and Holderness, Graham Stuart. Good

:02:39.:02:45.

evening. Thank you for coming in. I know you disagree, but can you see

:02:46.:02:53.

Hull's thinking? It is strange to go about it not inviting the east

:02:54.:02:58.

riding to have a position, not consulting, which is what is

:02:59.:03:05.

annoying my constituents. `` East Riding. Doing something to them,

:03:06.:03:13.

rather than with them. What about boundary changes making things

:03:14.:03:18.

prosper, would you just take that out? The thing is having the support

:03:19.:03:26.

of the people. Steve Parnaby is right to ask the people, so there

:03:27.:03:30.

will be this referendum in September and I would add my constituents in

:03:31.:03:38.

the Hedon area, make your vote, you will have a choice on two things, to

:03:39.:03:44.

be part of Hull and have Hull City Council providing services, and do

:03:45.:03:48.

you want places like Hedon airport developed? Many people think that

:03:49.:03:55.

Hull's land grab allows them to exploit the green belt, build on it

:03:56.:03:59.

and is not done in the interests of the people they wish to take over.

:04:00.:04:07.

Is Hull wasting their time? Setting up the way they have is

:04:08.:04:10.

counter`productive. Not working with people I think will put backs up.

:04:11.:04:17.

This referendum is costing ?60,000, another is costing ?40,000, ?100,000

:04:18.:04:25.

of taxpayers' money wasted? Hull City Council should have worked to

:04:26.:04:30.

have a joint approach, did not do that, then this up as a land grab,

:04:31.:04:37.

and I think Stephen Parnaby handled it well, seeing to give the people

:04:38.:04:42.

said. Abie get the MPs together and stop the squabbling? See what the

:04:43.:04:50.

people have to say. And if the people overwhelmingly vote against,

:04:51.:04:54.

that will send a strong message whichever government is in power

:04:55.:04:58.

before and after next May. Thank you very much.

:04:59.:05:03.

Some other news tonight. A man has appeared in court in

:05:04.:05:07.

Beverley charged with the murder of a landlady from Bridlington. Bei

:05:08.:05:10.

Carter was found stabbed to death in a bedroom at her guest house on

:05:11.:05:14.

Friday the 18th of July. John Heald was also charged with ten rapes in

:05:15.:05:17.

Sheffield on the 13th of July. Magistrates ordered him to appear at

:05:18.:05:21.

Hull Crown Court this Friday. Police are increasing patrols in a

:05:22.:05:24.

part of Lincoln after a suspected arson attack. The fire destroyed two

:05:25.:05:28.

flats in Westwick Drive early this morning. No`one was hurt.

:05:29.:05:31.

Lincolnshire detectives want help from the public to piece together

:05:32.:05:35.

the final days of a man found dead in a caravan. The body of Shaun

:05:36.:05:38.

Scholes was discovered at Freiston near Boston at the weekend.

:05:39.:05:44.

A former Education Secretary attended the start of construction

:05:45.:05:47.

work on the new Humber University Technical College. The school for

:05:48.:05:52.

14`19 year olds in Scunthorpe will teach engineering skills, and is the

:05:53.:05:55.

first of its kind in the area. It's very necessary for industry. Because

:05:56.:05:58.

these companies that are supporting this college find it very difficult

:05:59.:06:01.

to recruit technicians and engineers locally. And that is what they need.

:06:02.:06:09.

These are big operators. Maritime experts say Hull could see

:06:10.:06:12.

a shipping boom because of global warming. Ocean experts say Arctic

:06:13.:06:18.

ice is thawing, opening up the shipping route north of Russia. It

:06:19.:06:24.

would mean a cheaper, faster route from one side of the world to the

:06:25.:06:27.

other. The rate at which ice is melting in

:06:28.:06:31.

the Arctic is alarming environmentalists. But presenting

:06:32.:06:32.

opportunities for shipping companies. The breaking ice has

:06:33.:06:38.

opened up routes which have reduced journey times between the East and

:06:39.:06:42.

the West. At the moment, ships travelling between Asia and Europe

:06:43.:06:46.

go the long way round. Through the Suez Canal, with journeys taking

:06:47.:06:50.

around eight weeks. Going via the Northern Sea Route, through the icy

:06:51.:06:53.

waters north of Russia, cuts the journey by a third. Experts believe

:06:54.:06:58.

Hull is the best placed UK port to take advantage. Hull is about the

:06:59.:07:03.

only one I've thought of. And looking at it, because if you come

:07:04.:07:07.

much further south, you might as well go to Rotterdam. Um, so you've

:07:08.:07:14.

got to be relatively far north. You've got to save the big ships

:07:15.:07:19.

that additional day's sailing. Hull has a rich maritime history.

:07:20.:07:24.

From fishing and whaling, to shipping goods to and from the UK.

:07:25.:07:29.

Those involved with the shipping industry today said the increased

:07:30.:07:32.

use of the Northern Sea Route could be a welcome new chapter for the

:07:33.:07:37.

city's port. The John Good Group was founded in Hull in 1833.

:07:38.:07:41.

Specialising in shipping and logistics, it's exactly the type of

:07:42.:07:48.

company that could benefit. Hull, as a natural gateway up and down the

:07:49.:07:51.

East Coast, clearly needs to take advantage of that. And tool up to

:07:52.:07:56.

make sure we can capitalise on any such opportunity going forward. By

:07:57.:07:59.

2020, it's believed the Northern Sea Route could be used 60 days a year.

:08:00.:08:06.

If the port of Hull is to be a viable option, experts say get the

:08:07.:08:09.

infrastructure would need to be vastly improved, so that cargo could

:08:10.:08:12.

be distributed efficiently beyond the port.

:08:13.:08:19.

More potential good news for Hull. That is the news tonight. Now the

:08:20.:08:26.

weather forecast with Paul Hudson. Good evening. It looks as if we are

:08:27.:08:31.

in for an unsettled spell of weather over the next few days. Tomorrow has

:08:32.:08:34.

sunny intervals and scattered showers. It is dry at the moment.

:08:35.:08:38.

Quite a bit of cloud at times streaming in from the west. It might

:08:39.:08:42.

be thick enough for the odd shower in places. But most of us will be

:08:43.:08:45.

dry and we will see those temperatures around 13`14 degrees.

:08:46.:08:48.

`` lowest temperatures. Tomorrow, then, a day of variable amounts of

:08:49.:08:51.

cloud. There will be some sunny spells at times. One of two showers

:08:52.:08:55.

from the word go. But sunny spells and, as temperatures rise into the

:08:56.:08:58.

afternoon, we will see those showers turning a little bit more frequent

:08:59.:09:01.

and potentially heavy. But good dryer, brighter spells in between

:09:02.:09:04.

those showers. Top temperatures 20 or 21 degrees. Friday, a fine start.

:09:05.:09:08.

Showers later. Saturday, very unsettled. Heavy and at times

:09:09.:09:11.

prolonged showers. That is the forecast.

:09:12.:09:18.

Paul, thank you. Newsnight has just started on BBC Two with a special

:09:19.:09:21.

programme on the Middle East in crisis. We are back in the morning

:09:22.:09:29.

from 25 past six, as usual. I will see you tomorrow night. Take care.

:09:30.:09:31.

Goodbye. heavy in the north of the region.

:09:32.:09:34.

24-25 Hello again. Will it be happy

:09:35.:09:45.

campers or happy gardeners? You get different responses when you mention

:09:46.:09:48.

rain at this time of the year. I will try to remain neutral and talk

:09:49.:09:52.

of an increasing chance of showers developing tomorrow. There'll be

:09:53.:09:56.

further mentions or rain for Friday and over the weekend. Most of the

:09:57.:10:01.

showers have been over northern parts but they will work southwards

:10:02.:10:05.

through tonight. And at the same time begin to turn heavier as well.

:10:06.:10:09.

Creeping southwards all the while but not reaching south-eastern

:10:10.:10:14.

parts. Starting the day dry with temperatures in the mid to high

:10:15.:10:18.

teens in much of East Anglia, southern England and the Midlands.

:10:19.:10:22.

Showers are beginning to show their hand. One or two in the Bristol

:10:23.:10:30.

channel. And in southern and central England and Wales. Random across

:10:31.:10:34.

Scotland and Northern Ireland, but the odd patch of brighter colour

:10:35.:10:37.

means that some of the showers will be heavy.

:10:38.:10:40.

Injects some heat and energy from the sun and the showers develop more

:10:41.:10:44.

widely as the day wears on.
