still the potential. Quite nasty weather. To keep an eye on the

:00:00.3:59:59

forecast. Good evening and welcome to

:00:00.:00:00.

BBC Look North. There is anger as the closure

:00:07.:00:08.

of the M180 leads to long delays Why did they not do it at night? I

:00:09.:00:14.

have wasted an hour so far. With the roadworks set to continue,

:00:15.:00:32.

a row breaks out between North Lincolnshire Council

:00:33.:00:35.

and the Highways Agency. I am cross, they have not listened

:00:36.:00:44.

to was. We are not proud, we are sorry for the congestion and we are

:00:45.:00:50.

trying to put it right. `` they have not listened to us.

:00:51.:00:53.

The outbreak of Legionnaires' Disease in Grimsby.

:00:54.:00:56.

We have all the latest on the investigation.

:00:57.:00:58.

They are the only two still capable of flying,

:00:59.:01:00.

now these Lancaster Bombers will be brought together in Lincolnshire.

:01:01.:01:06.

I am at RAF Coningsby where final preparations are underway for the

:01:07.:01:12.

historic meeting of these two aircraft.

:01:13.:01:16.

And Steve Bruce and his men get ready for Hull City's

:01:17.:01:18.

Tomorrow, a draw in Switzerland takes place and Hull City want to be

:01:19.:01:27.

there. Unsettled weather over the next

:01:28.:01:30.

couple of days, I will be back later with the details.

:01:31.:01:38.

The Highways Agency has told Look North that long delays to

:01:39.:01:41.

journeys caused by its own roadworks in North Lincolnshire are

:01:42.:01:45.

Drivers have spent another frustrating day in traffic jams

:01:46.:01:50.

and queues around the M180, which has been completely closed

:01:51.:01:54.

for more than five miles in one direction for the last two days.

:01:55.:02:04.

Traffic is being diverted onto the A18. Congestion is being felt.

:02:05.:02:16.

The Agency has apologised and says it is hoping to open one

:02:17.:02:18.

We will be hearing from them in a moment.

:02:19.:02:22.

The plan was straightforward, to re`surface the M180, but its

:02:23.:02:26.

full east`bound closure yesterday from Junctions 2`3 brought chaos.

:02:27.:02:34.

Today, they have closed the M180 from junctions one to three, and

:02:35.:02:37.

behind me, you can see where they are diverting the traffic off, but

:02:38.:02:40.

that is the beginning of today's chaos, because that has now started

:02:41.:02:43.

a queue which is stretching over ten miles long from here all

:02:44.:02:46.

This was the queue at the Scunthorpe end, near Keadby Bridge, where

:02:47.:02:51.

two`way traffic over the bridge had been stopped and alternated instead.

:02:52.:03:01.

I had been stuck here 45 minutes, I tried another road but no other way

:03:02.:03:10.

to go, it is horrendous. Anywhere else in the country, they resurface

:03:11.:03:15.

roads to keep traffic moving. This is just utter chaos.

:03:16.:03:18.

And another five miles along, a solid queue of traffic,

:03:19.:03:21.

and people were getting out of their vehicles in frustration.

:03:22.:03:24.

Why did they not do it at night? I cannot understand it. We have been

:03:25.:03:34.

on the roads since seven o'clock. It is shocking. I have a booking at

:03:35.:03:38.

nine o'clock and they will refuse this container now. Really bad,

:03:39.:03:41.

this. And again at seven miles,

:03:42.:03:44.

we heard more effects of not getting I am running a clinic at Grimsby

:03:45.:03:55.

hospital which starts at nine o'clock and I will be late for the

:03:56.:03:56.

patients. North Ferriby and the A16

:03:57.:04:04.

around Grimsby At the Humber Bridge, they lifted the tolls to help try

:04:05.:04:07.

and ease the congestion. The bridge will continue to be

:04:08.:04:10.

free until midday tomorrow. But nothing could ease the fury

:04:11.:04:12.

of councillors. The Highways Agency have not

:04:13.:04:16.

listened to us. We know vehicle flow and the villagers, they should have

:04:17.:04:21.

listened. We cannot have this chaos again, they have to look at the

:04:22.:04:25.

situation and work at night or in the evening.

:04:26.:04:28.

The Highways Agency have apologised for the delays, but work is expected

:04:29.:04:31.

Their current plans, however, are now being reviewed.

:04:32.:04:37.

I spoke to Roger Wantling, from the Highways Agency.

:04:38.:04:39.

I asked him whether he was happy with the way things have gone.

:04:40.:04:48.

No, we are not happy. We would prefer it to be a lot better and we

:04:49.:04:56.

are working hard to get it right. People are livid, blaming the

:04:57.:05:01.

Highways Agency and saying it is an absolute disgrace and things I

:05:02.:05:05.

cannot say on air, would you agree? Yes, I accept `` totally

:05:06.:05:11.

unacceptable level of congestion. Who thought it was a bright idea to

:05:12.:05:16.

close all lanes on a busy motorway? Who thought that would work? We did

:05:17.:05:23.

a full assessment to ensure queues were no more than 13, 15 minutes,

:05:24.:05:29.

that is clearly wrong. It was a rubbish assessment. What about the

:05:30.:05:32.

council? They advised you to do it at night and you took no notice and

:05:33.:05:38.

did it in the day. We consulted with all the councils and the police and

:05:39.:05:41.

emergency services and other partners. Before we went ahead. So

:05:42.:05:48.

everybody understood. So it was the right thing to do it during the day

:05:49.:05:52.

rather than at night? Yes, because in fact, based on the figures, and I

:05:53.:05:57.

do apologise that the figures are not correct and we will have that

:05:58.:06:01.

review to `` reviewed to learn from this, but because we are doing

:06:02.:06:05.

excavation work and repairing the concrete, we would not have been

:06:06.:06:09.

able to completely renew the motorway section. Do one lane at a

:06:10.:06:18.

time, why all in one go? The plan would have been to do the roadworks

:06:19.:06:24.

on four weeks but that would take four monster. 3.5 hours from Leeds

:06:25.:06:29.

to Scunthorpe, what is your message to those who have been caught up in

:06:30.:06:33.

it watching tonight? Genuinely very sorry for causing

:06:34.:06:39.

this. We are working hard and we hope to open one lane first thing

:06:40.:06:44.

tomorrow morning. We are looking to complete the works by Monday and

:06:45.:06:47.

future works will not be allowed to close the motorway in less we are

:06:48.:06:51.

certain they will not cause these problems.

:06:52.:06:56.

If one is well handled and ten is a complete fiasco, what figure would

:06:57.:07:01.

you give it? I would say at the moment, that is probably, the scheme

:07:02.:07:07.

itself would be a ten. The delays we have caused would be a three.

:07:08.:07:14.

So it is a complete fiasco? We are not proud, we are genuinely sorry

:07:15.:07:17.

for the congestion we have caused and we are working hard to put it

:07:18.:07:20.

right. Thank you.

:07:21.:07:25.

Let us know if you have been affected by the traffic delays.

:07:26.:07:28.

And are you reassured by what you have heard from the Highways Agency?

:07:29.:07:49.

We look forward to hearing from you in the M180. Thank you for watching.

:07:50.:07:59.

A special look at the rugby league legend who

:08:00.:08:02.

Health officials in Grimsby are still trying to trace

:08:03.:08:13.

the source of a Legionnaires' disease outbreak in the town.

:08:14.:08:15.

Although there have been no new cases confirmed today, four people

:08:16.:08:18.

They were all taken ill between last Friday and Monday this

:08:19.:08:22.

week, and doctors believe there could be further cases in the area.

:08:23.:08:25.

Well, there is some relief that no further cases have been identified

:08:26.:08:34.

since Monday, and those four people who were taken to Grimsby Hospital

:08:35.:08:37.

I spoke to the wife of one of the patients at lunchtime and she

:08:38.:08:41.

Meanwhile, scientists at Scunthorpe General

:08:42.:08:44.

will continue to test possible cases, but if none are found,

:08:45.:08:48.

this cluster of four will be put down to an unfortunate coincidence.

:08:49.:08:58.

It does happen with things that RF. Sometimes we say, you wait for a bus

:08:59.:09:06.

for seven hours and things `` and they come together at once, it is

:09:07.:09:13.

the same statistical quirk. `` things that RF. We are looking out

:09:14.:09:17.

for cases and consultants at the hospitals are aware of what to look

:09:18.:09:20.

out for and what to do if they suspect a case.

:09:21.:09:23.

What happens now? Doctors' surgeries will stay

:09:24.:09:26.

on alert for another two weeks, and in the meantime,

:09:27.:09:29.

possible sources for the infection Although there is no evidence

:09:30.:09:31.

cooling towers at local businesses are to blame, they are

:09:32.:09:34.

all carrying out extra cleaning to Legionnaires' has

unusually poorly and feverish are Thank you, we will continue to

follow that story. A 46`year`old man has died

:09:44.:09:57.

after he was assaulted outside Darren Lee Barton was taken to

:09:58.:10:00.

:10:01.:10:03.

:10:04.:10:05.

charged with assault earlier this Nine different organisations have

:10:06.:10:07.

come together to try to improve the health of the people of Hull

:10:08.:10:16.

and help them live longer. The Hull 2020 project is made up

:10:17.:10:19.

of emergency and health services, We all behind the health outcomes

:10:20.:10:31.

for the people of city and Humberside. `` we are. If we can

:10:32.:10:37.

keep people living healthily and independently in their homes, we

:10:38.:10:42.

have less emergencies to go to so we are at forefront of this project. ``

:10:43.:10:45.

the forefront. Final preparations are being made

:10:46.:10:48.

in Lincolnshire for the arrival of one of the last airworthy

:10:49.:10:51.

Lancaster bombers in the World. The aircraft left Ontario in Canada

:10:52.:10:53.

on Tuesday and should arrive at The journey will unite

:10:54.:10:56.

the last two flying Lancasters. Thousands of people are expected to

:10:57.:11:06.

turn out. Gemma Dawson reports from

:11:07.:11:10.

RAF Coningsby. The team here

:11:11.:11:13.

at RAF Coningsby have spent the afternoon servicing their Lancaster,

:11:14.:11:15.

and now she is being towed into the hangar ahead of tomorrow, which

:11:16.:11:18.

really will be an historic day. It is now more than 50 years since

:11:19.:11:21.

Lancasters have flown in formation over Britain, but tomorrow,

:11:22.:11:24.

the Lancaster here will join up with the only other airworthy Lancaster

:11:25.:11:26.

in the world, which is currently RAF Lancaster, of Bomber Command,

:11:27.:11:29.

flies through a curtain of heavy flak to blast the Luftwaffe

:11:30.:11:37.

equipment depot near Paris. They were a familiar sight

:11:38.:11:40.

during the Second World War, but now there are only two

:11:41.:11:44.

airworthy Lancasters left. One is based here at RAF Coningsby,

:11:45.:11:48.

where final preparations are being This is

:11:49.:11:51.

a once`in`a`lifetime opportunity. There are only two flying Lancasters

:11:52.:11:56.

in the world and we are fortunate The only other is

:11:57.:11:59.

the one coming over from Canada, so it really will be something that is

:12:00.:12:06.

very, very unlikely to be repeated. The Canadians' Lancaster finally

:12:07.:12:10.

left Ontario on Tuesday. On`board is a man who bid ?43,000

:12:11.:12:15.

for the only passenger seat We spoke to him in Canada

:12:16.:12:17.

before take`off. The experience

:12:18.:12:25.

of being able to fly and be part of a team bringing it to the UK was

:12:26.:12:27.

just an amazing opportunity. It is not so much

:12:28.:12:32.

about flying a Lancaster, Pam is part of the support crew

:12:33.:12:34.

and told me she will be relieved when their aircraft finally joins up

:12:35.:12:40.

with the one in Lincolnshire. This is probably one

:12:41.:12:47.

of the most historic times. To fly over the ocean

:12:48.:12:49.

and visit England is amazing. Over the next few weeks, the two

:12:50.:12:51.

Lancasters will appear together at a One of the highlights will be when

:12:52.:12:54.

the two aircraft fly here at East Kirkby, giving people the chance

:12:55.:13:00.

to see three Lancasters together. But

:13:01.:13:12.

for those wanting a bird's eye view, a company based at this airfield

:13:13.:13:14.

in Kent is preparing to take paying passengers on flights within 50

:13:15.:13:17.

metres of the visiting Lancaster. We will be able to provide positions

:13:18.:13:19.

of the aircraft alongside, so we can get very nice shots

:13:20.:13:22.

of the flank of the aircraft. And we want to position

:13:23.:13:25.

the aeroplane in`flight over the At the pods in Scunthorpe,

:13:26.:13:28.

I meet David, He would have liked to have

:13:29.:13:36.

seen it cross the Atlantic. I thought it was

:13:37.:13:44.

a one`off chance to do it, Back at RAF Coningsby,

:13:45.:13:48.

the team knows thousands of people will be holding out to catch

:13:49.:13:55.

a glimpse of this historic moment. Well, more than 100 bomber command

ago. Thank you for the stunning

:15:02.:15:19.

photograph from Cleethorpes. Good evening. We thought is always

:15:20.:15:27.

stunning! And I have another picture from you `` for you tonight.

:15:28.:15:33.

This is from Turkey. He went into the local bar and look what was on

the television in Turkey! Thank you, Stephen. It must be terrible

television in Turkey! Maybe they were mating `` waiting to

see me! It was before you what on TV.

:15:48.:15:52.

The weather is unsettled with heavy showers. `` you were on TV.

:15:53.:16:02.

This area of low pressure is the remains of Hurricane Bertha. It will

:16:03.:16:12.

bring showers and a windy spell of weather overnight into Monday. It

:16:13.:16:17.

has been nice today and the cloud has been broken. Pleasant smells of

:16:18.:16:22.

sunshine. The cloud will melt away this evening and it will be largely

:16:23.:16:26.

fine. Dry with clear spells overnight before they could cloud

:16:27.:16:30.

spreads later in the night, temperatures around 13, 14 degrees.

`` thick cloud. The sun will rise in the morning at 5:27 a.m.. The next

:16:39.:16:48.

high water will be in Cleethorpes. There will be some dry weather

:16:49.:16:51.

tomorrow, it will not be raining all day. There is a window of decent

:16:52.:16:58.

weather at first but showers will spread from the South East. Some of

:16:59.:17:02.

them are slow`moving and heavy and persistent at at times. Heavy

:17:03.:17:08.

downpours. But it will not rain all day everywhere. Temperatures up to

:17:09.:17:14.

19, 20 degrees. Looking further ahead, Saturday looks pretty decent.

:17:15.:17:21.

Light showers or the risk of them, and a fair amount of sunshine.

:17:22.:17:29.

Sunday, more unsettled, heavier at showers `` heavier showers, strong

winds overnight into Monday and Monday looks unsettled.

take the girl out of Cleethorpes! How dare you? !

:17:43.:17:44.

See you tomorrow. Tonight, the Tigers will play their

:17:45.:18:01.

first ever home European game. It is 0`0 after last week's first leg

:18:02.:18:07.

against AS Trenshun in Slovak year so all to play for tonight. More

:18:08.:18:12.

from our sports reporter. This was the defining moment in some

:18:13.:18:15.

IKEA. Even those who saw it first hand could not believe there were no

:18:16.:18:23.

goals. And AS Trenshun remain a threat so Steve Bruce has stepped up

:18:24.:18:28.

training to improve his team. I am hoping we have a full house, we can

:18:29.:18:34.

play with the energy levels we know we can play at because they are not

:18:35.:18:38.

used to that. That is what the Premier League is about, that is

:18:39.:18:41.

what makes it a spectacle, it is played at a pace not many teams can

:18:42.:18:45.

play at. He will not be drawn on weather new

:18:46.:18:50.

signing Robert Snodgrass will play today but a long serving players

:18:51.:18:54.

says they have added a lot. To see somebody like that is a big lift. It

:18:55.:18:58.

was the same last season when the boss did well to ring in other

:18:59.:19:03.

players. It lets your levels because you want to be seen in the same

:19:04.:19:10.

light as those players. `` it lifts up your levels.

:19:11.:19:13.

The visitors strained at the Stadium last night. A far cry from their own

:19:14.:19:18.

4,500 capacity ground. The stadium is beautiful and it is

:19:19.:19:22.

in a very good condition. The majority of the players have not

:19:23.:19:27.

played in a stadium like this before. And that stadium advantage,

:19:28.:19:34.

finds hope, will see the ball on the net and not over it. `` the fans

:19:35.:19:40.

hope. A big stadium. Simon, how big is the

:19:41.:19:46.

threat from AS Trenshun? We saw them last week, a very tidy

:19:47.:19:51.

side, the visitors from Slovakia. This is also a very big day. But

:19:52.:19:57.

nowhere like the date the people of Hull have seen. People here have

:19:58.:20:03.

come from all sorts of communities. `` the day. This is a day when Hull

:20:04.:20:12.

is getting behind Hull City for an historic day out in Europe.

:20:13.:20:18.

And BBC Radio Humberside will have full coverage of that game.

:20:19.:20:21.

Build`up starts at seven o'clock, and goals from the game on

Thanks to everyone who got in touch after our story about tougher

:20:25.:20:33.

action on landlords in Boston who let out sub`standard housing.

:20:34.:20:41.

When Jack Harrison signed up to fight in World War One, he was

:20:42.:21:18.

But his actions on the front line during

:21:19.:21:22.

the war would see him honoured not once, but twice for his bravery.

:21:23.:21:25.

Caroline Bilton looks at how a sportsman made

:21:26.:21:27.

It is 2005, one of rugby league's oldest clubs, whole FC, winds the

:21:28.:21:45.

most prestigious competition. `` Hull FC. The Challenge Cup. In its

:21:46.:21:50.

history, the club has lifted this trophy just three at times. The

:21:51.:21:58.

first was 100 years ago, in 1940. This was their home, the humble

:21:59.:22:04.

surroundings of the boulevard. And at that time, Hull was on a roll. It

:22:05.:22:12.

was one of the top teams. They had appeared in successive challenge cup

:22:13.:22:19.

finals in 1908, 1909 and 1910. Four months after their wind, war was

:22:20.:22:22.

declared and a decision had to be made, should the game continue? ``

:22:23.:22:28.

their wind. War broke out in 1914 and the rugby league Executive

:22:29.:22:33.

Council met to discuss what attitude to take. There were calls for all

:22:34.:22:45.

types of rugby to stop. But they decided it was important for morale

:22:46.:22:48.

to have recreation and so the game continued. And one player would

:22:49.:22:59.

leave a lasting legacy, his name was Jack Harrison. He had it all, speed,

:23:00.:23:07.

great speed, a great swerving ability, sidestep in both feet. To

:23:08.:23:14.

this day, a record held by Jack Harrison still stands. In the 1914

:23:15.:23:19.

season, he scored 52 dries, nobody has ever done that a game in the

:23:20.:23:25.

club's history. `` dries. A year later, you volunteered for the Army

:23:26.:23:28.

and he joins the East Yorkshire Regiment. `` 52 dries. He was

:23:29.:23:37.

involved in an attack which saw him awarded the military Cross and he

:23:38.:23:40.

showed courage again months later, but this time, he paid the ultimate

:23:41.:23:47.
