Through Sunday and inch or two inches of rain, gales are possible

:00:00.:00:00.

Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:00.:00:00.

Arriving in Lincolnshire after a transatlantic flight `

:00:00.:00:13.

the world's only airworthy Lancasters are brought together.

:00:14.:00:18.

But there was disappointment here at RAF Coningsby where heavy rain and

:00:19.:00:21.

thunder storms meant their historic flight together had to be cancelled.

:00:22.:00:26.

More than half an inch of rain in less than an hour ` flash floods

:00:27.:00:30.

The worst of the bad weather is over for now, but more storms are

:00:31.:00:55.

I'll have the full forecast later in the programme.

:00:56.:00:58.

The motorway closures which tourism bosses say will put

:00:59.:01:02.

The last minute goal that kept Hull City's European dream alive.

:01:03.:01:06.

As unique to the area as the Humber Bridge and white phone boxes,

:01:07.:01:11.

but is Chip Spice one of Hull's best kept secrets?

:01:12.:01:23.

It was supposed to be a unique moment in aviation history,

:01:24.:01:27.

but today thunderstorms and heavy rain meant the flight

:01:28.:01:31.

of two Lancaster bombers over Lincolnshire had to be cancelled.

:01:32.:01:33.

Thousands of people had turned out to see the world's last two

:01:34.:01:36.

A flypast over Lincoln cathedral accompanied by

:01:37.:01:50.

the Red Arrows had been planned, but the weather put a stop to all that.

:01:51.:01:56.

Gemma Dawson has spent the day at RAF Coningsby where

:01:57.:01:58.

Gemma, how much of a disappointment has this been?

:01:59.:02:11.

The Canadian Lancaster has travelled 3700 miles. But with 100 miles to go

:02:12.:02:21.

a thunderstorm hit preventing the fly`past taking place. But many

:02:22.:02:27.

people were happy to sleep off of the Lancasters together even if it

:02:28.:02:33.

was just on the tarmac. `` were happy to witness the Tang Castor ``

:02:34.:02:48.

witness the Lancaster together. Sometimes on the way to read you

:02:49.:02:52.

could see at the Lancaster is underneath you.

:02:53.:03:04.

To commemorate the wartime efforts and the lives lost the Canadian

:03:05.:03:06.

Lancaster is set off for Lincolnshire. They stopped in a

:03:07.:03:15.

slant last night. Back in Lincolnshire crowds had gathered

:03:16.:03:20.

from early this morning. We were on our way to a wedding and we heard

:03:21.:03:27.

about this. To see one is fantastic, to see two is out of this world. It

:03:28.:03:33.

is once in a lifetime. At 11 o'clock the Lancaster was taken into

:03:34.:03:40.

position. There have been false starts over the years to try to get

:03:41.:03:47.

both aircraft together. Finally it has come together. But it was not to

:03:48.:03:58.

be. The weather turned. EV Asian enthusiasts waited for news. ``

:03:59.:04:12.

Aviation enthusiasts waited for news. We were waiting for so long.

:04:13.:04:25.

40 minutes late their Canadian aircraft arrived. It is a momentous

:04:26.:04:35.

day to have these aircraft together. I am disappointed that they have not

:04:36.:04:40.

been able to fly together. But it is a very exciting day. It would have

:04:41.:04:47.

been nice to see them fly together. But I am happy enough. The aircraft

:04:48.:04:55.

were finally united on the runway. The historic flight is still to

:04:56.:05:02.

come. The Canadian Lancaster needs to be

:05:03.:05:07.

serviced after its long journey. The aircraft are now due to fly together

:05:08.:05:13.

next week. There will be a number of events

:05:14.:05:16.

where both aircraft will appeared together.

:05:17.:05:32.

So there are still plenty of opportunities to see the aircraft

:05:33.:05:33.

flying together. With three quarters of an inch

:05:34.:05:43.

of rain falling in an hour it wasn't just today's historic fly

:05:44.:05:46.

past which was affected. Flash flooding has caused damage to

:05:47.:05:48.

homes and businesses in several places with Louth being

:05:49.:05:50.

the worst affected. Our reporter Jill Archbold has spent

:05:51.:05:53.

the afternoon there A torrential downpour that didn't

:05:54.:05:55.

last more than half an hour which overwhelmed this Lincolnshire

:05:56.:06:01.

market town. The rain described

:06:02.:06:02.

by those living here as biblical. It's just flooded from three

:06:03.:06:15.

different directions. It was coming in under The Doors.

:06:16.:06:18.

One street in Eastgate looked more like a river.

:06:19.:06:20.

Luckily for Michael O'Hara sandbags saved his home ` his garden taking

:06:21.:06:23.

It is fair rather than anything else that that will get worse and come

:06:24.:06:32.

into the house. What can you do? Contractors in Louth working

:06:33.:06:52.

for Anglian Water rushed with They saw what was happening to us

:06:53.:07:10.

and came to our assistance. We were within two inches of it coming into

:07:11.:07:19.

the house. There is going to be further rainfall but we hope it will

:07:20.:07:22.

not be on the same scale as earlier on. But we have taken the

:07:23.:07:26.

opportunity to do further planning. Water poured through the ceiling

:07:27.:07:30.

at this sewing shop ` and business owner Valarie rushed to

:07:31.:07:33.

save wedding dresses. I have a dress that cost a lot of

:07:34.:07:37.

money. It cannot be replaced. With more rain forecast `

:07:38.:07:50.

emergency services in Louth watch closely to see if their help will be

:07:51.:07:52.

needed once more. Mark Welsh is from

:07:53.:08:02.

Lincolnshire County Council. I asked him what problems

:08:03.:08:05.

the rain had caused flooding. In years gone by we would

:08:06.:08:29.

down? not `` either councils letting as

:08:30.:08:29.

down? Fire and Rescue have been there

:08:30.:08:33.

through the day. This sort of rainfall, where ever it would fall

:08:34.:08:39.

would cause a problem. One of the water companies has said this will

:08:40.:08:43.

be the norm for the future. Have you got the resources to cope? Some

:08:44.:08:51.

people see the likelihood of summer five times as likely. I think that

:08:52.:08:56.

is true. In terms of resources we are prepared. There was some heavy

:08:57.:09:03.

rain today for a short period of time and then we see those pictures.

:09:04.:09:09.

Do you have the resources to cope? Yes we have. Had that rain fallen

:09:10.:09:17.

somewhere else it would have caused the same problem. What advice do you

:09:18.:09:29.

have for those affected today, and also over the weekend? I am very

:09:30.:09:48.

sorry for anybody that has been flooded. We will be investigating

:09:49.:09:53.

that. Over the weekend, heavy rainfall tonight, Sunday, a storm

:09:54.:09:58.

coming through. Be prepared. Check the Environment Agency for online.

:09:59.:10:02.

Check the net office warnings. Have you been affected

:10:03.:10:06.

by the flooding today? A man accused of murdering

:10:07.:10:08.

a Bridlington guest house owner John Heald appeared at

:10:09.:10:30.

Hull Crown Court Bei Carter died at the

:10:31.:10:33.

Morayland Guest House on He also faces ten separate charges

:10:34.:10:37.

of rape in South Yorkshire. Health officials trying to trace

:10:38.:10:42.

the source of a Legionnaires disease outbreak say four people

:10:43.:10:45.

recovering from the disease had all visited Freeman Street in Grimsby

:10:46.:10:48.

prior to being ill. The source of the infection

:10:49.:10:54.

hasn't yet been identified. Doctors? surgeries will stay

:10:55.:11:00.

on alert for another two weeks A man has been charged

:11:01.:11:03.

after a laser`like beam was shone at a police helicopter in

:11:04.:11:08.

North East Lincolnshire. Simon Pearson who's 40 and from

:11:09.:11:11.

St Nicolas Drive in Grimsby, has been charged under the

:11:12.:11:14.

Air Navigation Order. He was arrested in the early

:11:15.:11:17.

hours of yesterday morning. The first female commander

:11:18.:11:20.

of a Royal Navy warship, who was born and raised

:11:21.:11:22.

in Lincolnshire, has been removed from her post after claims she had

:11:23.:11:25.

an affair with another officer. Commander Sarah West from Grimsby

:11:26.:11:32.

took charge of HMS Portland in May 2012,

:11:33.:11:37.

but left her vessel last month. A Royal Navy spokesman said that

:11:38.:11:40.

she would be assigned a new role. That's the message

:11:41.:11:45.

from business leaders who fear that visitors won?t come to the town this

:11:46.:11:49.

weekend because of the traffic chaos Part

:11:50.:11:52.

of the motorway was reopened today after the Highways Agency admitted

:11:53.:11:55.

it was wrong to shut the eastbound More from our

:11:56.:11:58.

Political Editor Tim Iredale. Throughout the day yesterday

:11:59.:12:25.

national radio stations warned of the problems caused by the closure

:12:26.:12:27.

of this section of the M180. Although only one lane eastbound

:12:28.:12:30.

reopened today traffic was moving. And that meant

:12:31.:12:34.

a less stressful journey for drivers Where have you come from? What was

:12:35.:12:37.

the motorway like? Not too bad. But some Cleethorpes business owners

:12:38.:12:50.

fear this week's traffic chaos in North Lincolnshire will deter

:12:51.:12:53.

many weekend visitors. The gentleman said he would give

:12:54.:13:04.

himself the eight of ten for the destruction. I would give him too.

:13:05.:13:12.

On behalf of of the traders, please, it is a storm in a teacup.

:13:13.:13:18.

The Highways Agency admit they got it wrong by closing the whole

:13:19.:13:20.

They've spoken to business leaders and politicians in

:13:21.:13:23.

North East Lincolnshire to avoid a repeat performance.

:13:24.:13:32.

The traders and the tourist industry are outraged. These problems can

:13:33.:13:41.

easily be avoided. The message is that we are open for business. The

:13:42.:13:49.

agency has promised to try and put alternative traffic arrangements in

:13:50.:13:49.

place. Of course if you are heading to

:13:50.:13:52.

the seaside this weekend other modes Tim Iredale, BBC Look North,

:13:53.:13:55.

Cleethorpes. Thanks to everyone who got

:13:56.:14:02.

in touch about the roadworks taking faced the axe in the World War I.

:14:03.:15:20.

He showed a picture last night of me in Turkey. There is a picture of me

:15:21.:15:30.

in France. The director says it is dull.

:15:31.:15:34.

Maybe they cannot understand what you are seeing.

:15:35.:15:51.

Still some very heavy showers around. Still the potential for a

:15:52.:15:57.

heavy downforce over the next few hours. After a fine day tomorrow

:15:58.:16:07.

there is this area of low pressure from the South. Sunday night into

:16:08.:16:30.

Monday, strong winds as well. Further thunderstorms spreading

:16:31.:16:36.

northwards. It will be a dry ends to the night. Temperatures will fall

:16:37.:16:54.

back to 13 Celsius. Tomorrow, a much quieter day. The clothes will be

:16:55.:17:00.

broken. There will be sunny spells through the morning. `` the clouds

:17:01.:17:22.

will be broken. On Sunday heavy rain will spread out from the side. Very

:17:23.:17:27.

windy overnights, Sunday into Monday.

:17:28.:17:45.

And somebody has contacted us to see that you are Mary Poppins of whether

Goodbye. Hull City face a trip to Belgium

:17:51.:17:59.

to play KSC Lokeren in the next The Tigers beat AC Trencin

:18:00.:18:02.

from Slovakia in front Here's our Sports Reporter,

Simon Clark. Another day at UEFA headquarters,

:18:07.:18:08.

another European draw for Hull City. This time their journey takes them

:18:09.:18:12.

to Belgium to face face Lokeren. But Hull's first taste of European

:18:13.:18:15.

football was nearly its last. Tomas Malec ensured

:18:16.:18:23.

a difficult night for the Tigers That away goal meant the home

:18:24.:18:26.

side needed two to progress. It was a frustrating effort until

:18:27.:18:33.

Robbie Brady's cross found a superb So just the one needed

:18:34.:18:36.

but it wouldn't come. Not until substitute Sone Aluko

:18:37.:18:42.

latched on to Robert Snodgrass's They stack at it after an. It. The

:18:43.:19:07.

crowd were fantastic. Thankfully we saw it too.

:19:08.:19:10.

Around 60 had made the trip to Hull from Slovakia,

:19:11.:19:13.

It was very exciting. The hull city supporters were very nice.

:19:14.:19:30.

So expect a busy time around King George Dock in Hull

:19:31.:19:32.

around the 20th August as fans make the short hop to the continent.

:19:33.:19:38.

It's the start of the league season for the rest

:19:39.:19:40.

Scunthorpe United manager Russ Wilcox says his side will go into

:19:41.:19:44.

The Iron travel to Swindon tomorrow in their first game back in

:19:45.:19:50.

League One after they were promoted last year.

:19:51.:19:59.

The players we have brought to the club will make us competitive. It is

:20:00.:20:06.

difficult to see where we're going to finish. We want to finish as high

:20:07.:20:11.

as we possibly can. You have got to make sure you stay in that league.

:20:12.:20:14.

And BBC Radio Humberside will have full commentary of

:20:15.:20:16.

Scunthorpe United's trip to Swindon tomorrow afternoon.

:20:17.:20:18.

In the Conference, Grimsby Town start their season

:20:19.:20:21.

That game will be on earlier with a 12.45 kick off.

:20:22.:20:28.

BBC Radio Lincolnshire will have commentary of Lincoln City's

:20:29.:20:30.

In Edwardian times, Bridlington offered elegant

:20:31.:21:19.

escapism, and the jewel in its entertainment crown was the Spa.

:21:20.:21:26.

But when war broke out 100 years ago, the venue's star

:21:27.:21:29.

faced being axed because everyone thought he was German.

:21:30.:21:32.

Jo Makel has been looking at how even the world

:21:33.:21:38.

of entertainment couldn't escape the realities of war.

:21:39.:21:49.

Edwardian piddling ten combined seaside fun with elegance. `` Eduard

:21:50.:22:07.

Ian Bridlington combined seaside fun with elegance.

:22:08.:22:19.

German and Austrian bands playing light

:22:20.:22:20.

Just before the war The Spa had attracted

:22:21.:22:25.

He would perform to the Royal Family. He was eight mast for people

:22:26.:22:47.

visiting the seaside. `` he was an essential for people visiting the

:22:48.:22:49.

seaside. But Kandt's future at the Spa was

:22:50.:22:51.

at risk. The outbreak of war meant

:22:52.:22:53.

attitudes were changing. Seaside fun was

:22:54.:22:55.

about to get serious. For one thing the Government wanted

:22:56.:22:57.

everyone to boycott German goods. But the worry about German

:22:58.:22:59.

influences put the spotlight He was from a Russian immigrant

:23:00.:23:01.

family, called Kantovich and had But his adopted name ` Herr Kandt `

:23:02.:23:05.

was a problem. It was a disaster to be branded as a

:23:06.:23:13.

foreigner, especially if you were in military uniform. There was a

:23:14.:23:22.

feeling in favour of him in the town because of commercial reasons.

:23:23.:23:30.

Loyalty to King and country crashed against commercial success. Energy

:23:31.:23:38.

and the council decided to keep him. He was on a new wartime contract

:23:39.:23:45.

which could be changed at any time. A lot of effort was made.

:23:46.:23:54.

Even the elegant escapist world of the Spa could not avoid

:23:55.:23:57.

You may not have heard of chips ice. We went to find out by chip spice is

:23:58.:24:31.

such a hit. It is a phenomenon. Its appeal seems

:24:32.:24:41.

to be spreading. I am sending it to my son who emigrated to Australia.

:24:42.:24:53.

It is good to. This person is one of those credited with starting the

:24:54.:25:01.

clays. We saw products of the same style in America. That puts the idea

:25:02.:25:06.

into our heads. It has inspired a line of clothing. They sold out

:25:07.:25:20.

straightaway. And now this entrepreneur has brought out his own

:25:21.:25:24.

brand. Who better to explain what it is? You can put chilly or carry on

:25:25.:25:38.

your chips. It is healthy. But in Lincolnshire at no one has heard of

:25:39.:25:46.

it. Have you ever heard of it? No. It is not something we have been

:25:47.:25:54.

asked for. It has not spread over the bridge

:25:55.:25:58.

yet, but one day Lincolnshire could be as mad on chip spice.

:25:59.:26:16.

Here is a recap of the headlines. America attacks Islamist militants

:26:17.:26:23.

in Iraq launching an air strike. And the last to hear worthy

:26:24.:26:28.

Lancaster bombers are brought together in Lincolnshire.

:26:29.:26:33.

And the weather bash big easy along the coast. Top temperature 22

:26:34.:26:38.

Celsius. We were talking about the flooding

:26:39.:26:42.

that has happened today in Lincolnshire.

:26:43.:26:53.

And one viewer has said he is fed up hearing how the agencies are working

:26:54.:27:00.

hard and still the floods occur. Many of the messages seeing a

:27:01.:27:03.

similar thing. Another message says, it is always

:27:04.:27:07.

the same places where it flat and they want to build new homes where

:27:08.:27:13.

it floods. Another message says, too many

:27:14.:27:17.

houses are being built without sufficient infrastructure such as

:27:18.:27:21.

drains. And another message says, as houses

:27:22.:27:27.

were not squashed into small pleasers without renewing the drains

:27:28.:27:32.

then they would not be an overflow of the drains.

:27:33.:27:38.

Buying queue for all the messages. `` thank you. Goodbye.

Martin Freeman presents a Gaza Crisis appeal on behalf of the

:28:00.:28:07.

Disasters Emergency Committee. Over the last month the crisis in

:28:08.:28:10.

Gaza has captured the world's attention.

:28:11.:28:13.

Military conflict has been taking a devastating toll on a

:28:14.:28:17.

densely-populated area. So tens of thousands of people have

:28:18.:28:20.

nowhere to live and nowhere else to go.

:28:21.:28:27.

The conflict means that the people of Gaza are in great need.

:28:28.:28:33.

Thousands of exhausted families are living in temporary shelters ?

:28:34.:28:39.

facing a very uncertain future. The DEC estimates over a million

:28:40.:28:43.

people don't even have access to enough clean water.

:28:44.:28:47.

These people desperately need your help.
