A man and a woman in their 70s have been killed in a crash in Driffield.

:05:10.:05:13.

It happened at around one this afternoon

when their car collided with another one close to the golf club.

resurfacing work. Health experts say plain packaging

:05:52.:05:56.

for cigarettes would have a huge impact in Hull,

:05:57.:05:59.

which has the highest rate Public Health England says research

:06:00.:06:01.

in Australia shows a signifhcant fall in smoking ` especially

:06:02.:06:05.

among young people ` when the brand The British government is still

:06:06.:06:08.

considering the idea, but in a city where

:06:09.:06:15.

the average smoker spends almost ?2,000 a year on the habit, it's

:06:16.:06:18.

claimed plain packets will hmprove Over

:06:19.:06:21.

the years huge efforts have been made to stop people smoking, from

:06:22.:06:33.

increasing the age it's legal to buy cigarettes to changing the law about

:06:34.:06:36.

where you can and can't do it. And most shops now have to keep

:06:37.:06:40.

their packets hidden away. Here in Hull it's estimated

:06:41.:06:43.

that around 70% of those who In our experience, the people that

:06:44.:06:45.

access the service do want to stop. They're motivated to quit btt they

:06:46.:06:57.

need the services and they need easy access to those services to give

:06:58.:07:00.

them the opportunities to quit. But now public health offichals here

:07:01.:07:09.

say they want to follow Australia's example and introduce non`branded

:07:10.:07:12.

packaging which, it's claimed, has What difference would this

make to the city of Hull? Recent figures show more th`n

:07:15.:07:19.

60,000 tpeople smoke in Hull. Spending in total ?111 millhon

:07:20.:07:21.

on cigarettes a year. And if plain packets were

:07:22.:07:23.

introduced, with fewer people smoking it's estimated savings

:07:24.:07:27.

of 4.4 million could be made. Apparently are around 49% of people

:07:28.:07:47.

here still smoke, so what are some of them make of the idea of removing

:07:48.:07:52.

branding from cigarette packaging? It does not make any differdnce

:07:53.:07:55.

branding from cigarette packaging? It does not make any difference. You

:07:56.:07:57.

should remove all cigarettes from shops permanently. It will make no

:07:58.:08:00.

shops permanently. It will lake no difference at all. Plain packaging

:08:01.:08:07.

is not the only solution. We need to reduce the amount of

:08:08.:08:11.

illicit tobacco that is in the city. We need to look at how we can

:08:12.:08:15.

support people that want to stop smoking and we need to provide

:08:16.:08:18.

support for children to become much more resilient and make healthier

:08:19.:08:21.

choices. The Government still hasn't made a

:08:22.:08:28.

decision on standardised packaging. But with 51 children under

:08:29.:08:30.

the age of 15 taking up smoking every day in the Yorkshire

:08:31.:08:33.

and Humber region alone, calpaigners Earlier, I spoke to Simon Clark

:08:34.:08:36.

from the pro`smoking group Forest, who are part`funded

:08:37.:08:42.

by the tobacco industry. I asked him whether a change

:08:43.:08:44.

in packaging would stop young There is no evidence plain packaging

:08:45.:08:47.

would stop children smoking. Children don't start smoking

:08:48.:08:53.

because of the packaging. They start smoking because

:08:54.:08:55.

of peer pressure, because But the director of

:08:56.:08:57.

Public Health England says standardised packaging is a powerful

:08:58.:09:02.

measure that would help savd lives. The Australian Association

:09:03.:09:04.

of Convenience Stores says it has affected 70% of their members,

:09:05.:09:13.

and they are losing business. The other argument

:09:14.:09:19.

in Australia is since December 2012, they have seen the fastest decline

:09:20.:09:24.

in smoking rates for 20 years. Yes, but plain packaging was only

:09:25.:09:27.

brought in in December 2012, so you can't claim it's because

:09:28.:09:34.

of plain packaging. There's huge opposition

:09:35.:09:36.

in this country to plain packaging. We handed

:09:37.:09:38.

in over 50,000 letters to Downing Street from people who are opposed

:09:39.:09:40.

to it, and we're going to give the Department of Health a further

:09:41.:09:43.

petition of over 100,000 nales. If it has the potential to work,

:09:44.:09:54.

like in Australia, First of all, this government said

:09:55.:09:59.

it would only bring There's no evidence to

:10:00.:10:05.

suggest this will work. We have still got the display ban

:10:06.:10:10.

to be fully implemented and that The year after that,

:10:11.:10:13.

the EU will introduce a revised tobacco directive

:10:14.:10:18.

which will see health warnings We've got to do something to

:10:19.:10:20.

reduce the smoking rates. In this city alone, the numbers

:10:21.:10:30.

have not come down at all. The Government is already

:10:31.:10:33.

introducing a display ban. In 2016,

:10:34.:10:42.

health warnings will get larger Surely we have to wait

:10:43.:10:45.

and analyse the impact on those measures before introducing

:10:46.:10:48.

something like plain packaghng. Do we want to see plain packaging

:10:49.:10:52.

on alcohol or fatty foods or sugary This is a slippery slope and we

:10:53.:10:55.

have to say we don't want it. Do you think smokers are

:10:56.:11:01.

being stigmatised with this? You seem to be worrying mord

:11:02.:11:06.

about the newsagents that I made that point because

:11:07.:11:08.

Public Health England today have said it won't have any impact

:11:09.:11:12.

on newsagents, but if newsagents and local convenience

:11:13.:11:14.

stores go bust, it has a huge impact on people in rural areas and small

:11:15.:11:17.

villages, so it is important. I am concerned this is further

:11:18.:11:26.

stigmatisation of smokers. Tobacco is

:11:27.:11:29.

a completely legal product. Everybody is aware of the hdalth

:11:30.:11:30.

risks of smoking, they don't need These packets will be coverdd

:11:31.:11:33.

in disgusting images, Are un`branded packets

the answer to reducing stubbornly Should the Government introduce

believes a lot of the probldms, including the "broken back door and

:17:13.:17:21.

damp" were "caused by the tenants". He added he thinks the term

:17:22.:17:24.

"rogue landlord" is misleadhng, but said the team is helping

:17:25.:17:27.

"improve properties" in Boston. The reason we describe them

:17:28.:17:29.

as rogue landlords is that these are the people who are basicallx taking

:17:30.:17:32.

advantage of the vulnerability of their tenants to make

:17:33.:17:36.

as much money as they can. This is not by any means

:18:28.:18:29.

That is difficult to find ott. they adjusted it for profit?

:18:30.:18:33.

That is difficult to find ott. We have done a tenants survey for the

:18:34.:18:39.

past 18 months and we found about 13% of tenants say they havd had

:18:40.:18:46.

some contact with what they described as a rogue landlords.

:18:47.:18:51.

You said 80% of tenants are happy. That means 20% are not.

:18:52.:18:59.

We said 80% of tenants are happy with their current tenancy.

:19:00.:19:06.

Why is a place like Boston so bad? The rents are high compared to

:19:07.:19:09.

earnings. I don't know if Boston is

:19:10.:19:13.

significantly worse than other areas. Boston has a significant

:19:14.:19:18.

increase in population over the last ten years. There are a lot of

:19:19.:19:27.

migrant workers and they tend to be people who have to look at the

:19:28.:19:32.

lowest quality housing. When demand is high, do landlords

:19:33.:19:35.

feel they don't need to bother as much?

:19:36.:19:38.

The majority of landlords are responsible people. Some believe

:19:39.:19:47.

they can exploit people. We need enforcement against those, `s

they can exploit people. We need enforcement against those, as the

Good to talk to you. If you are a tenants or a landlord, you light

Lincolnshire depended on farming. When World War I broke out,

men swapped the harvest fields In the tiny hamlet of Dalderby near

:20:35.:20:37.

Horncastle, nearly three quarters earning it the title of

:20:38.:20:45.

Lincolnshire's bravest vill`ge. Tom Scholey and John Garner's

:20:46.:20:51.

grandfathers had the two farms Five of them went to the

:20:52.:20:55.

First World War and the sixth one stayed at home, helping

:20:56.:21:04.

with the farm. While the families were proudly

:21:05.:21:07.

patriotic, losing their sons, their neighbours

:21:08.:21:11.

and their horses to the war effort Even though

:21:12.:21:14.

the power was provided by horses, in those first few weeks of the war,

:21:15.:21:26.

there was quite a shortage Farmers required a lot of people

:21:27.:21:32.

at harvest and at times like potato picking and other big

:21:33.:21:35.

jobs for the local farmers. When conscription started,

:21:36.:21:46.

the shortage of labour became The role of women became

:21:47.:21:48.

even more important. Women and children had traditionally

:21:49.:21:51.

helped, but in 1917, recruitment We hear about them a lot

:21:52.:21:54.

in the Second World War, but they were there in the First World War,

:21:55.:21:59.

and you've got people who had nothing at all to do with f`rming,

:22:00.:22:03.

who were recruited from the cities and told, "How about a nice job in

:22:04.:22:06.

the countryside and fresh air?" They worked as an organised team

:22:07.:22:12.

and they did a fantastic job. Irish gangs, wounded soldiers and

:22:13.:22:15.

even prisoners of war One change was to have

:22:16.:22:17.

a lasting legacy. The government helped to brhng

:22:18.:22:20.

in more tractors. It not only replaced horses,

:22:21.:22:22.

but also to a large extent, Instead of the 20 men,

:22:23.:22:24.

you might have six. That has been the biggest change

:22:25.:22:27.

and that really started to happen during the First World War

:22:28.:22:31.

and has continued ever sincd. Four out of the five Garner brothers

:22:32.:22:34.

made it safely back to the family f`rm,

:22:35.:22:36.

although the horrors of the trenches

:22:37.:22:39.

had left one badly shell`shocked. Their families' lives

:22:40.:22:42.

and the industry they were returning to had been changed

:22:43.:22:45.

for ever. A grandmother from Lincolnshire will
