The man revealed today as the head of Hull's UK City

:00:12.:00:14.

of Culture programme says the events in 2017 will remove a lot

:00:15.:00:17.

Martin Green masterminded the Olympic torch relays

:00:18.:00:20.

and world class opening ceremonies for the London 2012 Olympics

:00:21.:00:22.

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

:00:23.:00:37.

the hearts and minds of not only the country, but the world.

:00:38.:00:42.

Today, the man behind all that is in Hull.

:00:43.:00:47.

His new job, overseeing the City of Culture events.

:00:48.:00:51.

We're going to stage 365 days of transformed culture in Hull that

:00:52.:00:54.

will continue to put the city on the map and leave lots behind in

:00:55.:00:59.

terms of physical infrastructure, skills and memories.

:01:00.:01:04.

I think you come with the same ambition `

:01:05.:01:07.

to create something unique, tap into the soul of Hull, and turn Hull into

:01:08.:01:12.

a honey pot, if you like, that makes people go 'I want to go there'.

:01:13.:01:17.

It's being seen as a major coup for the city.

:01:18.:01:21.

As well as the opening ceremonies, he's been head of events

:01:22.:01:25.

A few years ago, a key figure in the opening

:01:26.:01:30.

Also the opening ceremony of the Tour de France in Leeds.

:01:31.:01:41.

And he's no stranger to Hull ` with friends in the city,

:01:42.:01:44.

he's looking forward to bringing the place to life.

:01:45.:01:48.

Every time I talk to him, we get so excited about what

:01:49.:01:52.

the year is going to bring and change the perception of Hull.

:01:53.:02:06.

Mr Green will take up his role in October.

:02:07.:02:08.

Detailed planning for events is set to begin early next year.

:02:09.:02:11.

Earlier I asked Martin Green why he took the job.

:02:12.:02:15.

I've had a connection with Hull for many years.

:02:16.:02:17.

It was part of the decision when they started talking to me.

:02:18.:02:24.

With respect, it's way harder to sell Hull than

:02:25.:02:26.

Once you've done the biggest event in the world,

:02:27.:02:37.

This is another challenge, and one I'm relishing.

:02:38.:02:42.

Will we have an opening ceremony here?

:02:43.:02:44.

Will I see Her Majesty and James Bond parachuting down?

:02:45.:02:50.

I think throwing people from the Royal Family out of

:02:51.:02:52.

Yes, we'll start in a great way and end in a great way.

:02:53.:02:57.

A lot of the concentration is what happens between those two days.

:02:58.:03:00.

We've got two years to the first event,

:03:01.:03:16.

What's interesting is, you think about the Tour de France,

:03:17.:03:21.

Glasgow 2014, there's an appetite for these things?

:03:22.:03:25.

There is, and the Olympic Games took away a lot of that cynicism.

:03:26.:03:30.

Fire crews will work through the night at a huge fire

:03:31.:03:44.

They were called out just before 2pm, with plumes

:03:45.:03:47.

About 15 fire crews have been at the site,

:03:48.:03:51.

National Grid says the power station was on summer shutdown.

:03:52.:03:55.

Travellers have left playing fields in Kirkella near Hull ahead

:03:56.:04:05.

East Riding Council is expected to start a clean`up tomorrow after

:04:06.:04:09.

The East Midlands Ambulance Service ` which serves Lincolnshire ` has

:04:10.:04:18.

significantly improved in the past year ` according to NHS inspectors.

:04:19.:04:20.

It follows critical reports and fines for missing targets.

:04:21.:04:29.

Unions and business experts are supporting a move by one of Hull's

:04:30.:04:32.

biggest employers to move up to 140 to China.

:04:33.:04:34.

Smith and Nephew is a global healthcare company but says

:04:35.:04:37.

Here's our our business correspondent Sarah Corker.

:04:38.:04:47.

City landmark, and a global company with a long history in Hull.

:04:48.:04:52.

Smith's factory makes products used by doctors.

:04:53.:04:58.

It's management division opened in 1998.

:04:59.:05:03.

Now up to 140 of its manufacturing jobs will move to the far east.

:05:04.:05:08.

We have two major manufacturing sites ` Hull and China.

:05:09.:05:14.

We have to utilise those as best as we can.

:05:15.:05:17.

The company's history stretches back to 1856.

:05:18.:05:32.

Today it has annual sales of more than ?2.5 billion

:05:33.:05:39.

For years, British companies have been shifting

:05:40.:05:46.

Smith has already moved some production jobs to the east

:05:47.:05:54.

It sees a bright future, to remain in the UK.

:05:55.:06:08.

In this instance, it makes sense to move some

:06:09.:06:11.

The move will see jobs go here by 2016.

:06:12.:06:15.

Unions hope compulsory redundancies can be avoided.

:06:16.:06:23.

Its products are used in hospitals across the globe, from hip and

:06:24.:06:32.

Increasingly, they'll be made in China while in Hull there will be a

:06:33.:06:36.

Hull City failed to score in their first European game.

:06:37.:06:48.

The game with Trenshun in Slovakia ended in a draw.

:06:49.:06:50.

This was the moment of truth for Hull City.

:06:51.:07:00.

Football matches are often defined by a moment of brilliance,

:07:01.:07:06.

but this one will be remembered for a spectacular miss.

:07:07.:07:10.

You'd put your house on Tom scoring, but he didn't.

:07:11.:07:45.

So the talking point from the fans, like the manager, was the miss.

:07:46.:07:48.

How can you kick it over the bar from there?

:07:49.:08:09.

All to play for in the second leg, and as fans leave they'll be talking

:08:10.:08:13.

about how wonderful this European excursion has been, but also how

:08:14.:08:15.

One or two thundery showers to come in the short term, then dry,

:08:16.:08:37.

but after a bright start tomorrow the showers redevelop.

:08:38.:08:43.

The rest of the night is fairly mild.

:08:44.:08:50.

Showers in western and northern parts.

:08:51.:09:08.

In between, a good deal of fine weather.

:09:09.:09:12.

Heavy downpours on Saturday but hopefully sunny spells in between.

:09:13.:09:17.

Rain for Saturday. Now to John who will take you through the national

:09:18.:09:35.

forecast across the UK. Hello there. You may have to find

:09:36.:09:40.

ways of occupying the children. A lot of rain for some, not so much

:09:41.:09:46.

for others. That was the way in July but overall whelmingly warm. Not as

:09:47.:09:50.

warm as last year but it continues the run of months with higher than

:09:51.:09:54.

average temperatures. The eighth now in a row. On to August, a few

:09:55.:09:59.

showers around. That is across the north and the west. Lots of dry

:10:00.:10:03.

weather between. A mild night at dawn, the temperatures about the

:10:04.:10:07.

mid-teens. You may wake up to sunshine but the general trend

:10:08.:10:12.

through the day is for things to deteriorate across the northern and

:10:13.:10:14.

western parts of England and Wales where the showers will begin to

:10:15.:10:18.

merge into longer spells of rain. Brightness on either side, some

:10:19.:10:23.

places avoiding the showers but a fair few across Scotland and

:10:24.:10:27.

Northern Ireland. Some sunshine between. Then we run into the zone

:10:28.:10:33.

of damp weather across parts of the north of England, to Wales and to

:10:34.:10:39.

the south-west. Some persistent rain. To the south and the east,

:10:40.:10:40.
