Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:08.:00:09.

150 jobs set to move to China from one of Hull's biggest employers.

:00:10.:00:18.

We are committed to operations in Hull.

:00:19.:00:22.

We need Hull and we need Suzhou, both vital to the future

:00:23.:00:23.

of this business. The man behind London 2012's opening

:00:24.:00:26.

ceremony will lead Hull City fans gather in Slovakia

:00:27.:00:29.

as the team kick off Thousands wait to see

:00:30.:00:35.

if family heirlooms are actually An unsettled weather on the way in

:00:36.:00:55.

the next few days. Join me for the very latest.

:00:56.:00:59.

One of Hull's biggest employers is transferring

:01:00.:01:02.

Smith and Nephew had told BBC Look North it is still committed

:01:03.:01:07.

to the city but needs to expand it's business in the far East.

:01:08.:01:12.

The global healthcare company employs a thousand people in Hull.

:01:13.:01:16.

More from our business correspondent, Sarah Corker.

:01:17.:01:19.

A city landmark and a global company with a 150`year history in Hull.

:01:20.:01:25.

Smith and Nephew's Tadman Street factory makes products

:01:26.:01:27.

Its wound managemant divison opened in 1998.

:01:28.:01:35.

But up to 140 of its skilled manufacturing jobs

:01:36.:01:39.

We have two major sites, here in Hull and also in China. We have to

:01:40.:01:56.

utilise them as best we can. We are committed to operations in Hull. We

:01:57.:02:09.

need Hull and we need the location in China.

:02:10.:02:13.

The history of Smith and Nephew stretches back to 1856,

:02:14.:02:16.

when Thomas James Smith first opened a small pharmacy in the city.

:02:17.:02:19.

Today it employs 1000 people in Hull and has annual sales

:02:20.:02:21.

For years, companies have been shifting manufacturing to China

:02:22.:02:25.

Smith and Nephew have already moved some production jobs abroad to

:02:26.:02:28.

its factory here in Suzhou in Eastern China.

:02:29.:02:31.

Unions hope compulsory redundancies in Hull can be avoided.

:02:32.:02:38.

We have a highly skilled workforce and the company will invest in

:02:39.:02:47.

that, they will look to bring in new products to the site over the same

:02:48.:02:50.

period that we are talking about moves to China.

:02:51.:02:53.

And there will be a focus here on development and innovation.

:02:54.:02:56.

Sarah is at Smith and Nephew this evening.

:02:57.:02:58.

They will go by July 2016 and the redundancy process has started, but

:02:59.:03:13.

the company is keen to stress that it is investing in Hull. It's site

:03:14.:03:19.

was badly damaged by December's tidal surge, this whole area was

:03:20.:03:26.

under water, but it is spending ?3 million on building up flood

:03:27.:03:30.

defences here. In the future there will be a focus on development and

:03:31.:03:35.

launch of new products, a ?6 million investment, which is likely to bring

:03:36.:03:40.

more work to the plant in the coming years.

:03:41.:03:46.

Mike Campbell has for more than a decade helped companies in the UK

:03:47.:03:49.

As well as job losses, is this an achievement for the city? This is a

:03:50.:04:04.

company that is globalising. It has markets around the world and it

:04:05.:04:08.

clearly sees a very bright future to remain in the UK for product

:04:09.:04:14.

development and innovation. In this case it makes sense to move some of

:04:15.:04:19.

its manufacturing to China. We have seen this in a number of cases over

:04:20.:04:24.

the last few years with companies that are beginning to globalise

:04:25.:04:28.

operations and select areas for specific product development as well

:04:29.:04:34.

as countries and regions that are best suited for manufacture. So in

:04:35.:04:40.

the long`term it will strengthen Smith and Nephew's position? It will

:04:41.:04:48.

strengthen their position, exploit the advantages of manufacturing its

:04:49.:04:52.

products in China but also maintaining the intellectual product

:04:53.:04:58.

development capability of its staff in the UK. Will we see more firms

:04:59.:05:07.

doing this now, with China expanding in manufacture, where there is a

:05:08.:05:13.

split between here and there? We are beginning to see that, we have seen

:05:14.:05:18.

that over the last ten years, businesses see that there are

:05:19.:05:22.

regions of the world that offer certain advantages for manufacture,

:05:23.:05:29.

offering low`cost manufacturing or and infrastructure capability that

:05:30.:05:34.

is not widespread in the UK. One thing I would stress is that the UK

:05:35.:05:41.

has a very strong intellectual product development capability, it

:05:42.:05:45.

is strong in branding, distribution and selling of products, and this is

:05:46.:05:52.

another situation where a company has strategically selected a country

:05:53.:05:57.

in the region which best suits its strategic objectives. Thank you very

:05:58.:06:05.

much for speaking to us. We will follow this story of course.

:06:06.:06:08.

The robotic patients heading to the US after being used to train

:06:09.:06:13.

The man who masterminded the opening and closing ceremonies

:06:14.:06:30.

at the London 2012 Olympics has been appointed as Chief Executive

:06:31.:06:32.

Martin Green will be in charge of delivering a programme

:06:33.:06:36.

of arts and culture in 2017, and hopes to bring some of the magic

:06:37.:06:40.

In a moment I'll be talking to Mr Green, but first Phillip Norton

:06:41.:06:44.

The jaw`dropping opening to London 2012, a show that captured the

:06:45.:06:54.

hearts of minds of not only the country but the world. Today the man

:06:55.:07:01.

behind all that is in Hull. His new job is to oversee the City of

:07:02.:07:11.

Culture event. We will stage a year of transformative culture that will

:07:12.:07:20.

put Hull on the map and leave behind memories. It is about creating

:07:21.:07:25.

something unique, tapping into the soul of Hull and turning it into a

:07:26.:07:28.

honeypot that makes people want to go there. It is being seen as a

:07:29.:07:36.

major coup for the city. Martin Green has an impressive CV. As well

:07:37.:07:40.

as the Olympics he has been head of events for the mayor of London's

:07:41.:07:44.

office and he was a key figure in the opening of the ?500 million O2

:07:45.:07:54.

venue in London. He was the master Hynde `` mastermind behind the grand

:07:55.:07:59.

depart of the Tour de France in Leeds. Every time I talked to him we

:08:00.:08:06.

get so excited about what the year is going to bring and how it is

:08:07.:08:11.

really going to change the perception of Hull nationally and

:08:12.:08:14.

change it for the people living there now. Martin has a track

:08:15.:08:21.

record, people thought the Olympics might be a disaster but they were

:08:22.:08:25.

superb and we can only expect something better from him this time.

:08:26.:08:30.

Mr Green will take up his position in October with detailed planning of

:08:31.:08:41.

events set to begin early next year. Mr Green, does the fact that you

:08:42.:08:47.

have been appointed, modestly aside, mean that the city has bought

:08:48.:08:55.

the best? What a tough question. I am very glad to be here. Clearly I

:08:56.:08:59.

am proud of my track record and I want to bring some of that expertise

:09:00.:09:04.

here mixed with the great arts and cultural scene that is here already.

:09:05.:09:10.

You said you wanted to be here because it is Hull. Why did you

:09:11.:09:16.

accept the job? I have a lot of good friends in Hull I have `` and I have

:09:17.:09:24.

links with the city. It is way harder to sell Hull than the

:09:25.:09:29.

previous jobs you have done. That is why I am here, once you have done

:09:30.:09:34.

Beeb guest event in the world you look another challenge. `` I'm the

:09:35.:09:46.

biggest event. This is `` the Olympics was a worldwide event, did

:09:47.:09:52.

you have any sleepless nights? I did, but I was working with the most

:09:53.:09:57.

amazing team. We got some great people in and we will here as well.

:09:58.:10:02.

Will we have an opening ceremony... We are not going to see her Majesty

:10:03.:10:09.

parachuting into Hessel Road? We will start in a great way and we

:10:10.:10:14.

will end in a great way like any event but a lot of the concentration

:10:15.:10:17.

is on what happens between the two dates. You want to do something

:10:18.:10:26.

every single day, don't you? I have an open mind. Day one, let's meet

:10:27.:10:32.

everybody, look at everything. We have over three years until the last

:10:33.:10:39.

event, two years until the first. There seems to be an appetite for

:10:40.:10:45.

big events. Yes, the Olympic Games took away a lot of the cynicism, we

:10:46.:10:50.

did it in Yorkshire, the Commonwealth Games is doing it now,

:10:51.:10:58.

and after that it is Hull's turn. If you want anybody to dress as a tea

:10:59.:11:04.

cake on you know where I am. Brilliant, you are in.

:11:05.:11:09.

Let us know what you think about this story.

:11:10.:11:16.

What would you like to see in the opening ceremony for Hull 2017?

:11:17.:11:20.

What elements which sum up the city should be included?

:11:21.:11:37.

The East Midlands Ambulance Service has improved over the last year.

:11:38.:11:44.

This report `` follows a number of fines for missed targets. The

:11:45.:11:49.

authority says it will continue to support the service to make sure

:11:50.:11:52.

that response times improve. The hot weather and a drop in oxygen

:11:53.:11:57.

levels are being blamed for hundreds of fish dying in the half`tide basin

:11:58.:12:01.

on Hull's Victoria Dock. The Environment Agency took water

:12:02.:12:03.

samples after Fountains in the basin will now be

:12:04.:12:05.

kept on overnight to keep oxygen levels higher and the City Council

:12:06.:12:10.

will look at replacing the fish. The living Islam festival is being

:12:11.:12:15.

set up at the Lincolnshire Showground.

:12:16.:12:19.

Fire crews have been tackling a huge fire today at the Ferrybridge Power

:12:20.:12:23.

They were called out just before two o'clock, with plumes

:12:24.:12:26.

National Grid says the power station is on summer

:12:27.:12:31.

shutdown, so there will be no loss of power as a result of the fire.

:12:32.:12:35.

Do we know how this started? The police helicopter has been circling

:12:36.:12:47.

and you can probably still see the smoke coming off the air bridge ``

:12:48.:12:55.

Ferrybridge power station. This was the scene earlier, thick black

:12:56.:13:01.

smoke. Scottish Southern Energy is to say this was a serious incident

:13:02.:13:08.

and that emergency procedures were activated.

:13:09.:13:16.

There was a lot of smoke and then flames. There were sirens as well,

:13:17.:13:22.

really loud. It was a bit scary because it is all my neighbours. If

:13:23.:13:27.

it did explode, it would be houses and cars, people risking their lives

:13:28.:13:34.

for us. They told us to stay in the house and keep windows and doors

:13:35.:13:42.

shut while it is going on. No actual word on what started

:13:43.:13:45.

this, although local people have told us this is a plant to remove

:13:46.:13:55.

sulphur. At its height 15 fire at `` fire engines were in attendance. The

:13:56.:13:59.

National Grid have been in touch and they say the power station was on a

:14:00.:14:05.

summer shut town 's electricity supplies were not affected but it is

:14:06.:14:10.

understood that the fire could go on until the morning.

:14:11.:14:18.

Ferrybridge power station between Hull and Leeds.

:14:19.:14:48.

Good evening, young man. The Antiques road show is still to come

:14:49.:14:53.

before the end of the programme, any more BBC productions you want to

:14:54.:15:00.

plug? The local weather show, I could plug

:15:01.:15:03.

that. I said top reductions.

:15:04.:15:10.

The weather is increasingly unsettled but there will be a good

:15:11.:15:16.

deal of fine weather, particularly across Lincolnshire and north`west

:15:17.:15:19.

Norfolk. Low pressure beginning to be established and this feature will

:15:20.:15:24.

bring showers later on Friday and wet weather on Friday night and for

:15:25.:15:28.

a time on Saturday. It looks like Sunday will be the best day of the

:15:29.:15:33.

weekend. Some lively showers in the past few hours coming into South

:15:34.:15:41.

Lincolnshire and north`west Lincoln. To the north it is fine with some

:15:42.:15:46.

sunshine and the night should be dry with some clear spells with a light

:15:47.:15:50.

south`westerly. We do not expect temperatures to drop between 13

:15:51.:16:01.

degrees. The sun rises at 5:15am, your next high water time in

:16:02.:16:08.

Skegness at 9:57am. Most of us off to a fine, bright start, some

:16:09.:16:14.

sunshine around. It should stay dry through the morning but cloud will

:16:15.:16:16.

thicken and we will see showers pushing the Western Northern `` and

:16:17.:16:28.

northern parts of east Yorkshire. Top afternoon temperatures across

:16:29.:16:33.

East Yorkshire, 20, 20 1 degrees, Lincolnshire, 21 in Grimsby, 22 in

:16:34.:16:44.

Skegness. `` 20, 21 degrees. As for Saturday, some heavy downpours, but

:16:45.:16:51.

some warn sunshine as well. Sunday looks a nice day.

:16:52.:17:05.

You made some derogatory comments earlier in the week, hard to believe

:17:06.:17:14.

we know about Spalding. This man says, Paul should do his

:17:15.:17:24.

forecast live from Spalding, I am sure his fans would be happy, both

:17:25.:17:27.

of them. They come in different shapes and

:17:28.:17:35.

sizes and they're playing a vital role

:17:36.:17:36.

training doctors in Hull. Lifesize, automated dummies are

:17:37.:17:39.

being used so successfully at the city's main hospital that

:17:40.:17:41.

they've been invited to show off their skills at an international

:17:42.:17:44.

conference in Chicago next week. With more, here's our health

:17:45.:17:46.

correspondent Vicky Johnson. Peter the mannequin is breathing

:17:47.:17:51.

well but in a moment he is going to deteriorate fast. The simulation

:17:52.:17:58.

centre at Hull Royal is set up like a real ward. Behind`the`scenes,

:17:59.:18:06.

technicians are making sure the situation is as lifelike as

:18:07.:18:13.

possible. We are pioneering some technology and learning methods here

:18:14.:18:19.

and that has been reflected in being invited to Chicago to give a keynote

:18:20.:18:27.

address. Every exercise is filmed then analysed. It went well in the

:18:28.:18:36.

medical aspects, the simulators can vomit, have seizures, stimulate

:18:37.:18:44.

pulses. With the people around you in that environment it is pretty

:18:45.:18:51.

much real`life. What sets the simulation centre a way from other

:18:52.:18:56.

hospitals is the number and variety of mannequins, from premature

:18:57.:19:01.

babies, children, a woman giving birth, to a full scale adult.

:19:02.:19:08.

Doctors and nurses who have used these techniques have been found to

:19:09.:19:16.

be much more confident. We found that they continue to use those

:19:17.:19:20.

skills that they have learned in the simulated environment so they are

:19:21.:19:26.

better health care professionals. The manufacturers of this equipment

:19:27.:19:30.

are so Inc `` impressed by the way the teams have used them, they have

:19:31.:19:36.

asked them to share their expertise with teams around the world.

:19:37.:19:51.

Thanks to everyone who got in touch with us about plans to

:19:52.:19:54.

The leader of East Riding Council has warned the city to "back off",

:19:55.:19:58.

saying it looks like a potential hostile takeover.

:19:59.:20:00.

But Hull City Council says it needs to expand into places like Hedon,

:20:01.:20:03.

Cottingham and Hessle because tight boundaries

:20:04.:20:05.

Hull City's European adventure has begun.

:20:06.:20:56.

Their Europa League match with AS Trencin is under way in Slovakia

:20:57.:20:59.

and in a few moments we'll find out how they're doing.

:21:00.:21:01.

All day, City fans have been arriving in the city of Zilina

:21:02.:21:04.

and our sports reporter Simon Clark has been with them.

:21:05.:21:12.

They have been arriving by any means possible. This was a group of Tigers

:21:13.:21:22.

fans coming in on the Rattus lather express. Slovakia is turning Amber

:21:23.:21:27.

and black. We could have ended up in Motherwell

:21:28.:21:31.

and we have is a leaner so we are delighted. `` Zilina. When I am

:21:32.:21:44.

older I can say I have been to the first European game, it is

:21:45.:21:46.

fantastic. The team arrived earlier to

:21:47.:21:52.

familiarise themselves with the stadium. We will learn in different

:21:53.:21:58.

ways to wind against different opposition and that will stand us in

:21:59.:22:06.

good stead for back home. The aim for the club as always is to try and

:22:07.:22:12.

improve and that is my job, to make sure we do not stand still. We have

:22:13.:22:17.

had a couple of wonderful years and the icing on the cake would be

:22:18.:22:22.

having a run in Europe. This is it, Hull City in Europe, and as one fan

:22:23.:22:29.

said, it is surreal. Yes, but it is reality. 110 years in the making, it

:22:30.:22:34.

is a night to remember for those in Amber and black.

:22:35.:22:44.

It is half`time in Zilina, how are City getting on?

:22:45.:22:54.

The best chance was slain long, `` Shane Long, ahead over the bar. As

:22:55.:23:13.

we go into the break it is 0`0. Hundreds of people turned out in

:23:14.:23:17.

Grantham to be part of the Antiques road show today.

:23:18.:23:33.

Belton House, a fitting background for the programme. The experts were

:23:34.:23:39.

here, getting snapped, playing guitar and generally getting

:23:40.:23:43.

animated. The people were here as well, in their hundreds. I arrived

:23:44.:23:49.

this morning and there were loads of cars. It is a nice part of the world

:23:50.:23:56.

here and quite a lot of First World War stuff is coming through. There

:23:57.:24:01.

was quite a big garrison town in the grounds of Belton House in the First

:24:02.:24:07.

World War so we may find things from that. You know how it works, that

:24:08.:24:15.

thing you have been polishing and cleaning in the corner of your room

:24:16.:24:19.

is brought here to be analysed by the experts and hopefully they will

:24:20.:24:23.

tell you it is worth a packet, because that is what we all really

:24:24.:24:28.

care about. Like these people bid on a classic moment from the series. It

:24:29.:24:38.

is worth a mere ?25,000. It inspired me to get out and randomly ask

:24:39.:24:45.

people what they had brought. First World War necklace from the Baltic.

:24:46.:24:52.

Some RAF memorabilia from 83 Squadron. Some coffee spoons, the

:24:53.:25:02.

top one I know is a moat spoon. We have one night of value and the rest

:25:03.:25:12.

is food! The item is not the central issue, it is your ticket to come and

:25:13.:25:17.

talk to us. Next time just grab anything old and

:25:18.:25:22.

become part of the occasion, and don't forget you're surprised face

:25:23.:25:35.

unless it is worth a packet. If you want to see the episode from

:25:36.:25:40.

Grantham it will be shown late in the autumn or early next year.

:25:41.:25:49.

Let's get a recap of the national and regional headlines.

:25:50.:25:52.

Israel says it won't stop its attacks on Gaza until all

:25:53.:25:54.

the tunnels built by Palestinian militants are destroyed.

:25:55.:25:59.

140 jobs are to go at Smith and Nephew and transfer to China.

:26:00.:26:04.

A dry bright start, clouding over with scattered showers

:26:05.:26:10.

spreading to most areas, becoming locally heavy in places.

:26:11.:26:13.

It is 0`0 at Hull FC against AES trenching. `` AS Trencin.

:26:14.:26:48.

One letter says, can we see that the lady at the opening.

:26:49.:26:54.

Matt says, opening music, we need to see plenty of local music.

:26:55.:27:03.

John in Skegness says, can we have Peter and Paul parachuting in for

:27:04.:27:08.

the opening ceremony? It will be well worth coming from Skegness to

:27:09.:27:13.

see that. John, you can stay in Skegness.

:27:14.:27:25.

Don't forget we are back at 10:25pm for the late bulletin.

:27:26.:27:30.
