Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:07.:00:07.

A ?15 billion plan to improve northern transport links is

:00:08.:00:12.

announced ` Hull is urged to get involved.

:00:13.:00:22.

It's really important that Hull plays an important role in the

:00:23.:00:28.

Northern economy by connecting into some of these mainstream fast

:00:29.:00:29.

routes. A man is arrested after crashing his

:00:30.:00:31.

car through a fence at Humberside It would have housed thousands

:00:32.:00:34.

of chickens ` now plans for a giant poultry farm

:00:35.:00:37.

are rejected in Sleaford. I've been getting reaction to a

:00:38.:00:50.

decision over a controversial development.

:00:51.:00:51.

And we take a special look at the impact World War One had

:00:52.:00:55.

Some heavy rain to come overnight, but it should brighten up tomorrow.

:00:56.:01:11.

A ?15 billion proposal to improve transport links across the North

:01:12.:01:14.

of England will benefit East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.

:01:15.:01:20.

That's according to Hull City Council, which is supporting

:01:21.:01:22.

a bid by five northern cities to improve road and rail routes.

:01:23.:01:27.

But one MP has accused the other cities `

:01:28.:01:29.

which include Leeds and Manchester ` of not inviting Hull to the party.

:01:30.:01:33.

More from our political editor, Tim Iredale.

:01:34.:01:39.

Travelling across the North of England can often be

:01:40.:01:44.

It's a familiar tale for these drivers. Time is money. Everyday we

:01:45.:02:06.

have trucks delivering products for Liverpool Manchester. Our trucks can

:02:07.:02:11.

be stuck in traffic jams for over an hour.

:02:12.:02:14.

The One North report unveiled today has been compiled

:02:15.:02:16.

by five leading northern cities ` Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds,

:02:17.:02:19.

They want ?15 billion spent on transport improvements

:02:20.:02:21.

across the North over the next 15 years, including better

:02:22.:02:24.

road and rail links between the major population centres.

:02:25.:02:31.

The proposals are supported by Hull City Council.

:02:32.:02:36.

How will improved links in Leeds, Manchester and Liverpool benefit

:02:37.:02:40.

Hull? It gets people moving, goods and people. Some of the journey

:02:41.:02:53.

times and abysmal, stream trains could do it faster.

:02:54.:02:55.

trains come to Hull? Your Mac it might be a time coming. Only last

:02:56.:03:09.

Some fear those five big cities will get the lion 's share of the

:03:10.:03:16.

funding. One think tank believes Hull must be prepared to piggy bank

:03:17.:03:19.

on the success of its northern neighbours. It needs to connect into

:03:20.:03:31.

some of these mainstream, fast routes. It's not a backwater, but it

:03:32.:03:38.

needs to make sure it's probably plugged in and connected to the

:03:39.:03:43.

places where the most rapid growth is taking place. George Osborne

:03:44.:03:47.

today said he wanted to create a northern powerhouse that would rival

:03:48.:03:50.

the City of London, but many will argue that any new government

:03:51.:03:54.

investment should be equally divided from the Mersey to the Humber.

:03:55.:04:00.

I spoke to Hull North MP Diana Johnson, who gave me her

:04:01.:04:03.

There's lots of very welcome proposals about improving the

:04:04.:04:14.

transport infrastructure across the north, but it's disappointing that

:04:15.:04:18.

Hull is not in there. The reason why it isn't included is because they

:04:19.:04:23.

are as self`selecting group, they are the core cities, the big cities

:04:24.:04:28.

of the North. So they don't want Hull? They've decided they are the

:04:29.:04:33.

big cities and they will put forward what were ` what they want to see.

:04:34.:04:39.

It's very short`sighted of them not to include Hull. So we aren't

:04:40.:04:44.

invited to the party. We are making a very strong case as to why we

:04:45.:04:49.

should be at that party. We have the renewables industry in Hull, city of

:04:50.:04:54.

culture status, one of the busiest ports. Hull isn't very good at

:04:55.:05:00.

pushing itself forwards. Ed Cox says it's up to Hull to get involved and

:05:01.:05:05.

push themselves forward. He's probably right, we need to make a

:05:06.:05:09.

stronger case for wide Hull needs to be in that core group of cities

:05:10.:05:14.

across the North. The regeneration and the renaissance of the North

:05:15.:05:19.

depends... How can we talk about the importance of East West if the port

:05:20.:05:24.

of East is missed out? You're right, that's why... It's up to the council

:05:25.:05:31.

now. It's not just about the council. The council have a very

:05:32.:05:36.

strong role to play. Lord Haskins has. The MPs in this area are all

:05:37.:05:41.

banging the drum to make sure the Humber is part of this. Are we a

:05:42.:05:46.

Premier League city on not? Of course we are, we are in the

:05:47.:05:50.

football Premier League! Why aren't we part of this group? You must be

:05:51.:05:59.

hacked off. I'm not. You should be. They can't do this without Hull.

:06:00.:06:06.

They are doing it without us. This is a proposal. There's lots of

:06:07.:06:11.

reference to the Humber ports, the M`16 to add the train lines. They

:06:12.:06:15.

recognised part of that, but we need to be part of the big picture for

:06:16.:06:19.

the North. Good to see you, thank you. It's got everyone talking

:06:20.:06:23.

today. Diana Johnson mentioned Lord Haskins

:06:24.:06:25.

there ` I will be talking to him Meanwhile, you might have a view

:06:26.:06:28.

on this story. Do you think Hull and this area

:06:29.:06:32.

needs to more to be included in In a moment ` lights go out

:06:33.:06:35.

across East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, as the area remembers

:06:36.:07:10.

the start of World War One. It would have homed over half

:07:11.:07:19.

a million chickens and supplied one of Lincolnshire's biggest food

:07:20.:07:22.

processors, but plans for an industrial scale chicken farm have

:07:23.:07:24.

been rejected by North Kesteven District Council despite the plans

:07:25.:07:26.

being recommended for approval. This is one of the reasons why.

:07:27.:07:51.

Hundreds of people living locally who lodged their objections. The

:07:52.:07:56.

plans for an industrial scale chicken farm near Sleaford. The

:07:57.:08:00.

plans which were approved in theory by the planning officers at the

:08:01.:08:06.

District Council. They recommended that this development wouldn't have

:08:07.:08:11.

a significant visual impairment. The people behind me today disagreed. 29

:08:12.:08:16.

councillors voted against these plans. Two abstained on the basis of

:08:17.:08:22.

its visual impact. We were influenced slightly by the number of

:08:23.:08:26.

heartfelt protestations that we've had about possible smell, noise, all

:08:27.:08:36.

sorts of things. We balanced it against the economic development,

:08:37.:08:41.

the number of jobs. At the end of the day, it came down to the fact we

:08:42.:08:47.

felt it was the wrong place. It's not just the visual impact of this

:08:48.:08:51.

development which concerned residents and councillors alike.

:08:52.:08:54.

There were also fears about an increasing number of HGV G`Mac which

:08:55.:08:59.

could clog up the nearby road network. They would have to access

:09:00.:09:04.

the site on an existing farm track which would be upgraded and that

:09:05.:09:09.

added other concerns because a popular cycle route between Sleaford

:09:10.:09:14.

and Lessing was used by a lot of schoolchildren. Forward Teva reason

:09:15.:09:20.

people objected, there were many relieved to see them rejected.

:09:21.:09:24.

Chicken farms per se, fine, it was the position. The position is to

:09:25.:09:31.

close. It's almost as if an area has been picked. What will cause the

:09:32.:09:37.

most disruption? The fundamental reason why I was against it was the

:09:38.:09:41.

location and the visual impact it has on the area. Who misses out in

:09:42.:09:48.

this decision? My Park is a chicken processor. They are one of the

:09:49.:09:53.

region's biggest employers and they wanted the chickens from this farm

:09:54.:09:57.

so they could expand production and employment or staff locally. We'll

:09:58.:10:01.

have to wait and see if they appealed the decision. A second

:10:02.:10:05.

proposal for a nano aerobic digester which would have turned that chicken

:10:06.:10:10.

waste into biogas has been deferred so we'll have to watch closely to

:10:11.:10:14.

see if that gets permission in the future. Thank you very much indeed.

:10:15.:10:17.

We'll continue to follow the story. A typhoon

:10:18.:10:25.

from RAF Coningsby was scrambled to escort a Qatar Airways plane into

:10:26.:10:27.

Manchester airport this afternoon. The pilot had reported concerns

:10:28.:10:29.

about a possible device on board. A man has been arrested on suspicion

:10:30.:10:32.

of making a hoax bomb threat after A man's been arrested after crashing

:10:33.:10:35.

a stolen car through the perimeter The airport say there was no threat

:10:36.:10:39.

to passenger safety What happened here at around 8:45am

:10:40.:10:58.

we don't know. Humberside Police are investigating, but we know a car

:10:59.:11:03.

struck perimeter fencing at the end of Humberside airport. There is the

:11:04.:11:07.

end of the runway and this is the per fencing, which has been

:11:08.:11:12.

damaged. And the remains of a car thought to be a black Renault Clio,

:11:13.:11:18.

which continued on. You can see tyre tracks into a field. Eyewitnesses

:11:19.:11:24.

awoke to hear the sound of sirens. We live 400 yards away from the end

:11:25.:11:30.

of the runway and we woke up to quite a large police presence. The

:11:31.:11:35.

police helicopter was at the end of the runway, which isn't normal. A

:11:36.:11:40.

large fire engine and lots of people. What could you see had

:11:41.:11:44.

happened to the car? We saw the car in the field. Humberside Police have

:11:45.:11:51.

said they've arrested a 39`year`old man in connection with the incident.

:11:52.:11:56.

It follows a burglary in Grimsby this morning and the theft of a car.

:11:57.:12:00.

But the authorities here at the airport are keen to point out

:12:01.:12:03.

there's been no operational disruption today and all this took

:12:04.:12:08.

place a long way from the passenger terminal.

:12:09.:12:10.

The sister of a man who died while in police custody says she's

:12:11.:12:13.

unhappy at the way the investigation into events

:12:14.:12:15.

Christopher Alder died at Hull's Queens Garden station in 1998.

:12:16.:12:24.

His body was believed to have been buried in 2000, but found

:12:25.:12:27.

Humberside Police is investigating whether his body was used

:12:28.:12:31.

15 people working for Hull city council received more

:12:32.:12:38.

than ?100,000 a year ` the largest number of any council in Yorkshire.

:12:39.:12:44.

Hull City Council say the figures from the TaxPayers'

:12:45.:12:46.

Alliance are misleading and they're reducing 40 managements posts.

:12:47.:12:52.

A ?100 million development near Boston which will feature

:12:53.:12:55.

a football stadium and new homes could move a step closer

:12:56.:12:57.

Supporters say it will help create 500 jobs.

:12:58.:13:07.

Opponents says it's in the wrong location.

:13:08.:13:19.

We'll be live in Boston at our late bulletin tonight. Thank you for

:13:20.:13:24.

watching. We take a special look at the impact

:13:25.:13:25.

World War One had on Skegness. And I'm with Scunthorpe United as

:13:26.:13:37.

they prepare for league one. Keep your photos coming in. This is

old timbers by the Humber. Taken by Keith Drury. Let's get the forecast.

:13:57.:14:07.

Some good news. We were expecting it to be very wet tomorrow, but a lot

:14:08.:14:12.

of the rain will affect us tonight. Tomorrow it will be a wet start to

:14:13.:14:15.

the day, but it should brighten up nicely with the rain clearing to the

:14:16.:14:20.

north`east. You can see how that front is pushing away on the

:14:21.:14:23.

pressure chart and Thursday looks like a decent day. A few showers

:14:24.:14:27.

tomorrow and a decent day on Thursday. We have seen more cloud

:14:28.:14:31.

spreading from the West this afternoon so a pleasant morning,

:14:32.:14:47.

cloudy afternoon and quite showery in places, particularly south of the

:14:48.:14:50.

Humber. This evening, a few showers, but later in the night this band of

:14:51.:14:52.

rain pushes up from the south`west. It will be heavy and persistent in

:14:53.:14:55.

places. It will be a warm and humid night. An uncomfortable night to

:14:56.:15:00.

come. The sun will rise at 5:24am and set at 8:50pm. As we go through

:15:01.:15:09.

tomorrow, we start the day on a wet note. The heavy rain will clear away

:15:10.:15:14.

slowest to do so for the Lincolnshire coast, where it could

:15:15.:15:19.

linger until early afternoon, but brightening up elsewhere. Sunny

:15:20.:15:22.

spells through the course of the day. Scattered showers and it will

:15:23.:15:26.

be a little breezy than it has been today. Sunshine and a few showers

:15:27.:15:31.

and warm once again. Temperatures getting up to around 22 23 Celsius.

:15:32.:15:41.

On Thursday, there will be unsettled conditions. Should be largely dry.

:15:42.:15:45.

Turning showery with more persistent rain later on Friday. Not too bad

:15:46.:15:51.

for Saturday. One of the National forecasters said this week is

:15:52.:15:55.

difficult to forecast. Why do you think they've sent him away? We've

:15:56.:16:02.

got you in instead. He's out of the country! See you tomorrow.

:16:03.:16:07.

When the First World War broke out in 1914, the resort

:16:08.:16:10.

of Skegness was just becoming a popular holiday destination.

:16:11.:16:15.

The conflict brought that to an abrupt end and Skegness was

:16:16.:16:17.

But as Caroline Bilton reports, salvation arrived from Scotland.

:16:18.:16:25.

A day at the seaside in the early 1900s.

:16:26.:16:29.

Resorts like Skegness were becoming the place to take a break `

:16:30.:16:36.

the development of the railways brought people flocking

:16:37.:16:38.

to get a taste of that ?bracing sea air? as depicted in the famous

:16:39.:16:41.

People were relocating here from the Midlands. People were moving here to

:16:42.:16:53.

set up business. It wasn't just the tourists. They came here to make

:16:54.:16:55.

money. But then war broke out `

:16:56.:16:58.

the trains were now used for troops, Skegness was in danger

:16:59.:17:01.

of closing down. But the council had a plan `

:17:02.:17:05.

Skegness could be used to offer billeting to soldiers `

:17:06.:17:08.

something Southport had done They can earn up to ?15,000 a week

:17:09.:17:25.

in income and this was going to be a huge saviour to Skegness. There was

:17:26.:17:30.

political desperation. How do you keep this new seaside resort

:17:31.:17:32.

functioning? And in November of 1914 the saviour

:17:33.:17:39.

came in the form of Lord Lovat Their role was to protect

:17:40.:17:42.

the east coast from invasion. The Lovat troops spent their time

:17:43.:17:46.

digging trenches and laying miles of wire entanglements and trip wires

:17:47.:17:50.

along the sand ` all in an effort to delay the enemy should they ever

:17:51.:17:53.

attack, and on December 16th, 1914, that threat of invasion came closer

:17:54.:17:56.

to home than many would have liked. For the Lovat troops,

:17:57.:18:04.

Skegness was seen as one of Concerts and dances were laid on for

:18:05.:18:07.

them and the luxurious Vine Hotel A bizarre change for the people of

Skegness that these guys wearing kilts, dancing, they weren't used

:18:22.:18:25.

men dancing, and bringing these customs.

:18:26.:18:27.

So the First World War brought a taste

:18:28.:18:29.

of the Highlands to Lincolnshire and it?s thanks in part to the

:18:30.:18:32.

Lovat Scouts that Skegness survived its fledgling years to grow into

A major tourist attraction on the Lincolnshire coast has gone

Fantasy Island at Ingoldmells will continue to operate as normal

:18:57.:18:59.

while the company's financial position is reviewed.

Scunthorpe United manager Russ Wilcox says he's confident that

Kick`off, the World Cup has been and gone. Transfers and loans have been

secured, while the sun is still shining it's been a very different

summer for us Wilcox, his first with managerial duties. More work, more

:19:50.:19:54.

phone calls, especially agents trying to bring players into the

:19:55.:19:57.

football club, but it's been enjoyable. Very privileged to be a

:19:58.:20:02.

manager. Have you had a break yourself? Went to Cyprus for a week

:20:03.:20:08.

with the family and that's it. All guns blazing after that, preparing

:20:09.:20:13.

for league one. Last season saw his side go on a record`breaking 28 game

:20:14.:20:18.

unbeaten run. It clinched them promotion to league one and sparked

:20:19.:20:21.

celebrations across North Lincolnshire. With last season's top

:20:22.:20:26.

scorer Sam Winnall sold to Barnsley over the summer, are they confident

:20:27.:20:31.

of taking their form upper`level? He's a loss to the club, but the

:20:32.:20:37.

players I've got, Dion Burton, Paddy Madden and I've brought in Lyle

:20:38.:20:40.

Taylor from Sheffield United, they will play a key role this season.

:20:41.:20:46.

Optimistic? You have to be at the start of the season. From what the

:20:47.:20:50.

chairman has done in the summer and what the manager has brought in,

:20:51.:20:54.

we've got a right to be. Wilcox says a good start to the season is key.

:20:55.:20:59.

The team and the fans are looking forward to a new challenge. We are

:21:00.:21:04.

excited, you have to be. The fixtures come out and they are

:21:05.:21:08.

always exciting. You are going to lovely stadiums, Bramall Lane this

:21:09.:21:13.

year and a lot of local derbies, Barnsley and Doncaster. We are

:21:14.:21:17.

excited as a football club. We are confident as well. We won't fear

:21:18.:21:24.

league one, but it will be tougher. How does the season look for all of

:21:25.:21:25.

our teams? We've just heard from... We've just seen Scunthorpe United

:21:26.:21:30.

there, they're away at Swindon Town on Saturday, but other key dates

:21:31.:21:33.

Last night, to mark the 100`year anniversary of Britain entering

:23:37.:23:39.

the First World War, lights were put out at churches, war memorials

:23:40.:23:41.

and public buildings across East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.

:23:42.:23:44.

Just a single light or candle was left to commemorate those
