That is all from the BBC News at 6.00pm. So goodbye from me and

:00:00.:00:00.

Good evening and welcome to Monday's Look North.

:00:00.:00:00.

The MP for Boston and Skegness resigns from the Government

:00:00.:00:08.

and says he'll leave his constituency as well.

:00:09.:00:18.

The thought of another five years staying in a different hotel every

:00:19.:00:25.

week in London, where, family, fills me with horror and it is not

:00:26.:00:30.

something I am going to do. It was a surprise announcement. I

:00:31.:00:35.

As it's confirmed a tornado did hit Hull.

:00:36.:00:39.

We hear from one woman who had a lucky escape.

:00:40.:00:46.

He kept saying, are you OK? I kept saying, yes, are you?

:00:47.:00:54.

"Unacceptable" care ` hospital managers in Grimsby,

:00:55.:00:55.

Scunthorpe and Goole say they have lessons to learn.

:00:56.:00:58.

And the quiet Lincolnshire village at the centre

:00:59.:01:01.

It has been a mixture of sunny spells and scattered showers. Join

:01:02.:01:15.

The MP for Boston Skegness, Mark Simmonds,

:01:16.:01:22.

has shocked the political world by announcing he's stepping down.

:01:23.:01:24.

He resigned as a foreign office minister today and said he won't

:01:25.:01:29.

stand again for election in the Lincolnshire constituency.

:01:30.:01:34.

Mr Simmonds blamed a "lack of support" for MPs with

:01:35.:01:36.

Let's cross live to our Tim Iredale in Boston.

:01:37.:01:43.

Well, it was a big surprise, especially considering that many

:01:44.:02:01.

people thought that Mark Simmonds had one of the best jobs in

:02:02.:02:05.

politics. I think its reasons for stepping down will also raise a few

:02:06.:02:10.

eyebrows. He is effectively saying he can no longer afford to be an MP

:02:11.:02:15.

because the Westminster expenses system does not cover the cost of

:02:16.:02:21.

running both a family home both in Westminster and here in his

:02:22.:02:26.

constituency. My report contains some flash photography.

:02:27.:02:28.

constituency. My report contains some flash photography.

:02:29.:02:31.

After 13 years representing Boston and Skegness in Parliament,

:02:32.:02:33.

Mark Simmonds has decided to exit the political stage.

:02:34.:02:35.

He blames a lack financial support for MPs

:02:36.:02:37.

The situation has become intolerable. I very rarely see my

:02:38.:02:50.

family, I very rarely see my children. I want to see my family

:02:51.:02:54.

and be part of their lives. Mark Simmonds has faced

:02:55.:03:38.

some criticism locally. After UKIP's success in the European

:03:39.:03:40.

elections, the leader of Boston borough council said he should spend

:03:41.:03:42.

more time in the constituency. He has not been the best at

:03:43.:03:55.

communicating the working has done. My messages, get Boston back first

:03:56.:04:39.

is your priority. In the county council elections last year and

:04:40.:04:45.

European elections this year, UKIP would have won this seat. I suspect

:04:46.:04:52.

people here will be getting a lot of visits from number crunchers in the

:04:53.:04:58.

run`up to the general election. Thank you.

:04:59.:05:03.

So what impact could Mr Simmonds' departure have on Boston

:05:04.:05:05.

The head of the Trust which runs hospitals in Grimsby, Scunthorpe

:05:06.:05:38.

and Goole has admitted that patient care was "not up to standard"

:05:39.:05:41.

Karen Jackson has also apologised to the families of those patients.

:05:42.:05:45.

The Northern Lincolnshire and Goole Hospitals' Trust will now look

:05:46.:05:47.

at whether further action will need to be taken against hospital staff

:05:48.:05:53.

Allegations of incidents in shortcomings in patient care are

:05:54.:06:10.

about to be explained publicly. It is not good enough. We work hard

:06:11.:06:13.

to make sure we learn from those letters. Today, the foundation trust

:06:14.:06:21.

admitted that four of the ten cases involved care that fell below their

:06:22.:06:24.

expected standards. Three of those cases have potential issues of

:06:25.:06:30.

professional accountability that will require further investigation.

:06:31.:06:38.

I am satisfied we took the necessary steps at the time. I am assured the

:06:39.:06:42.

plans we have in place in we will learn lessons from this and take

:06:43.:06:47.

appropriate action. For those individuals, the care that we gave

:06:48.:06:52.

was not up to standard and I am deeply sorry for that. So what has

:06:53.:06:58.

led to this situation? In October 2012, high mortality rate at

:06:59.:07:03.

Lincolnshire hospitals make the headlines. In July 2013, the trust

:07:04.:07:08.

was put into special measures. In June this year, the clinical

:07:09.:07:13.

commissioning group went public about concerns over ten incidents of

:07:14.:07:19.

patient care. Last month, the trust was taken out of special measures.

:07:20.:07:24.

Today's report found no systemic failings in the quality of care, and

:07:25.:07:29.

six of the ten original allegations were found to be unsubstantiated.

:07:30.:07:34.

These included two deaths, fun to be from natural causes. There were

:07:35.:07:44.

admitted failings. The health scrutiny committee will give their

:07:45.:07:48.

reaction next. There are still indication that things need doing. I

:07:49.:07:54.

have been showed on many occasions that hourly visits take place to

:07:55.:08:02.

patients, so I find it very difficult to understand how

:08:03.:08:07.

nutrition and hydration incidents can occur. The proof in the pudding

:08:08.:08:14.

is in the eating. We will be talking to the public, listening to what

:08:15.:08:17.

they are saying about their experiences, namely because we want

:08:18.:08:24.

to see the action plan is affected. The clinical commissioning group

:08:25.:08:27.

will raise the ten incidents in June said it was too early to comment on

:08:28.:08:31.

the report, but what commentator in is the week.

:08:32.:08:35.

Three people have been sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder

:08:36.:08:38.

34`year`old Steven Herbert, who was a father of two, was punched and

:08:39.:08:50.

Soul Humphries will face a minimum of 13`and`a`half years in prison,

:08:51.:08:56.

while Samuel Jordan and Tiffany Clark will be jailed for a minimum

:08:57.:08:59.

We have got some sort of justice for Stephen. His true friends and family

:09:00.:09:12.

have been here every day of the trial. Everyone loved him. He was

:09:13.:09:15.

perfect. An inquest has heard that two

:09:16.:09:18.

sisters from Sutton Bridge in Lincolnshire died when the

:09:19.:09:20.

poorly`maintained car they were in The accident happened on the A47

:09:21.:09:23.

at Walsoken in Norfolk while their father's partner

:09:24.:09:27.

Marie Easter was driving. Seven`year`old Jessica

:09:28.:09:29.

and ten`year`old Tamsin Porter The inquest heard both rear tyres

:09:30.:09:30.

were defective and pressures uneven. The children's dad hadn't checked if

:09:31.:09:35.

they were wearing their seatbelts. Do not take someone was one word for

:09:36.:09:59.

it. Physically check if seat belts are put on, physically check your

:10:00.:10:05.

tyres. If you think something is not right, do not drive it. It is a

:10:06.:10:09.

valuable lesson to be learnt. The cost of rural crime has

:10:10.:10:12.

gone up in Lincolnshire. A survey on the problem shows that in

:10:13.:10:15.

Lincolnshire it was up 28%, costing Charles Anyan, a farmer

:10:16.:10:18.

in Lincolnshire, has been targeted We are sitting ducks. We have

:10:19.:10:36.

high`value equipment. It is very frustrating. I did not go to

:10:37.:10:42.

university to study secure my property, I studied farming, and

:10:43.:10:46.

that is what I want to do. Rural crime takes it away from me. This

:10:47.:10:53.

increase is fuelled by the very expensive track tours and other big

:10:54.:10:56.

farm machinery that is in huge demand across the globe.

:10:57.:11:01.

Unfortunately, things have cottoned on to this demand and are stealing

:11:02.:11:03.

machinery to order. The search is on

:11:04.:11:07.

after a ?12,000 diamond was hidden I am told there has been a possible

:11:08.:11:24.

sighting in a nearby field which is being investigated. People here are

:11:25.:11:28.

still being encouraged to keep looking.

:11:29.:11:36.

Alan Galloway took this of North Bay at Bridlington.

:11:37.:11:57.

Now the weather. Good evening. Today has been a

:11:58.:12:04.

mixture of sunshine and showers. We are set to see the same tomorrow. It

:12:05.:12:11.

will still be quite breezy. That is because the pressure still

:12:12.:12:16.

dominates. It will be quite breezy and we will start to seek showers

:12:17.:12:19.

coming through as we head into the afternoon. There has been plenty of

:12:20.:12:25.

sunshine but you can see these shower clouds. Some of them,

:12:26.:12:28.

especially in Lincolnshire, have been quite heavy. Lincolnshire will

:12:29.:12:37.

become mostly dry. All parts will become dry as we head towards dawn.

:12:38.:12:41.

There will be plenty of clear skies as we head towards the end of the

:12:42.:12:48.

night. Temperatures will be down to about 12 degrees. It will still be

:12:49.:12:51.

quite breezy. It will ease down slightly from stop `` it will ease

:12:52.:13:07.

down slightly. Plenty of clear skies towards the end of the night means

:13:08.:13:16.

it will be a decent darks. `` a decent start. Showers are likely to

:13:17.:13:19.

become more widespread in the afternoon and heavier in nature.

:13:20.:13:24.

Also the odd rumble of thunder again. Temperatures between 17 and

:13:25.:13:33.

19. The breeze continues to freshen. As we head through

:13:34.:13:40.

Wednesday, it is looking a bit dry and brighter. The winds easing ever

:13:41.:13:46.

so slightly. There will be more in the way of sunshine. As we head

:13:47.:13:52.

through Thursday and Friday, mornings look fine with plenty of

:13:53.:13:57.

sunshine, but showers developing into the

:13:58.:14:02.

Weather experts have confirmed that a Tornado did hit part of East Hull

:14:03.:14:05.

Trees were brought down and cars were damaged in a storm caused by

:14:06.:14:09.

The bad weather also left many parts of East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

:14:10.:14:13.

under flood water ` some for the second time in less than two weeks.

:14:14.:14:16.

Hopewell Road still strewn with branches and parts of trees ripped

:14:17.:14:25.

Watching the clean`up, June Stephenson.

:14:26.:14:29.

Lucky to be alive, she'd just climbed into this taxi when the

:14:30.:14:32.

as I got near the door, there was a sound, but I don't know what's. I

:14:33.:14:49.

thought, what is that? I got into the car really quick and then the

:14:50.:14:54.

tree landed on top of the car, went through the window. I was covered in

:14:55.:14:59.

glass and blood. I was told if I had not got in the car when I did, I

:15:00.:15:03.

wouldn't be here. The trees would have been on my head.

:15:04.:15:12.

Everything blacken. It was like, is this the end of the world coming?

:15:13.:15:20.

This thing appeared out of the sky. I thought, this is what you see in

:15:21.:15:26.

movies. But it was there, it was a tornado. The winds was incredible.

:15:27.:15:38.

As the remnants of Hurricane Bertha swept through our area,

:15:39.:15:41.

In Grimsby, many parts of the town were flooded as drains

:15:42.:15:45.

We have to complain about the state of the drainage. It is clearly

:15:46.:15:56.

inadequate. I have been fortunate and my

:15:57.:16:03.

neighbours have. Others have not. There is not a lot you can do. I

:16:04.:16:10.

opened the door and it was six and a half inches. I could not open the

:16:11.:16:14.

door after that because it was much higher.

:16:15.:16:14.

North East Lincolnshire Council says 30mm of rain fell in 50 minutes,

:16:15.:16:19.

and it's working with Anglian Water to see what lessons can be learned.

:16:20.:16:29.

Homeowners in Hull are becoming accustomed to this kind of

:16:30.:16:36.

situation. We will never built to sell our house. It is about six

:16:37.:16:44.

times now? Seven times. What chance to have to sell our house?

:16:45.:16:48.

Council workers now face days of work to make damaged areas safe.

:16:49.:16:52.

We are making sure the trees are safe, claiming the debris is away

:16:53.:17:00.

then we will plant more trees. The clean`up is expected to last until

:17:01.:17:04.

the end of the week before all of these trees are assessed and made

:17:05.:17:08.

safe. Fully grown trees were ripped in half by this tornado. It is a

:17:09.:17:13.

storm residence here will never forget. I spoke to somebody from

:17:14.:17:26.

Anglian Water. It is important we learn lessons

:17:27.:17:28.

because we are looking at a future where we are going to see more

:17:29.:17:31.

extremes of weather like that which we endured, we are planning for a

:17:32.:17:35.

future where we can have a network that is able to cope with some

:17:36.:17:38.

of the more extreme weather Do you think we have reached

:17:39.:17:41.

a point where the current drainage system in this

:17:42.:17:49.

country is not good enough for the We are constantly improving

:17:50.:17:52.

the drainage network. We spend in the region of ?500,000

:17:53.:17:58.

every single day on the maintenance A 1.2 million scheme is happening

:17:59.:18:01.

in Louth right now to deal with There is more to do,

:18:02.:18:08.

there is more money we need to spend, and we need to try to get

:18:09.:18:18.

on top of some of the situations. It is not a case of wholesale

:18:19.:18:21.

ripping things out and replacing them because that would be very

:18:22.:18:24.

expensive and very destructive. What about people who feel they are

:18:25.:18:27.

let down by the council not cleaning out the drains, and also that they

:18:28.:18:30.

are building in Louth 900 plus homes, do you think you are being

:18:31.:18:35.

let down by other people as well? We have a shared responsibility

:18:36.:18:38.

to address these problems. That is ourselves, local

:18:39.:18:40.

authorities, the Environment Agency. We are involved in many

:18:41.:18:46.

of those forums already. Working together is something we are

:18:47.:18:48.

keen to make sure we do Briefly, what hope is there

:18:49.:18:55.

for people in places like Grimsby who have seen repeated flash

:18:56.:19:01.

flooding in the last few weeks? Are they just having to accept

:19:02.:19:04.

that is the way it will be now? We will carry out full

:19:05.:19:07.

investigations in areas where there We want to make sure

:19:08.:19:10.

our network performs as it should. If there are lessons to learn,

:19:11.:19:14.

we will make them Another one you might have views on.

:19:15.:19:47.

for it to start. I think they will be satisfied with a point.

:22:03.:22:04.

But that optimism was snuffed out almost from the start

:22:05.:22:08.

when the home side unlocked United's leaky defence.

:22:09.:22:10.

Soon after Dave Syers suffered a knee injury.

:22:11.:22:12.

In the Vanarama Conference goals were hard to come by

Grimsby Town were held to a goalless draw at Bristol Rovers.

:23:30.:23:33.

And there were no also goals at Lincoln City's game with

:23:34.:23:36.

Hull City goalkeeper Mark Oxley unexpectedly found himself

:23:37.:23:50.

on the score`sheet whilst playing on`loan in Scotland this weekend.

:23:51.:23:52.

His huge kick found its way into the goal after a freak bounce

:23:53.:23:56.

It gave Oxley his first goal in senior football.

:23:57.:24:00.

A village in Lincolnshire has found itself

:24:01.:24:09.

at the centre of a race to find a ?12,000 diamond that was launched

:24:10.:24:13.

The London based jewellery company had planned to track the diamond

:24:14.:24:19.

using mobile phone technology but hadn't counted on the poor

:24:20.:24:21.

They believe it landed close to Lea near Gainsborough at the end

:24:22.:24:25.

of last week but nobody has seen the gem since.

:24:26.:24:28.

It's normally X marks the spot, but in this treasure hunt,

:24:29.:24:37.

the only clue is the loot is near the Lincolnshire village of Lea.

:24:38.:24:42.

Somebody rang me up and told me about this diamond. It is supposed

:24:43.:25:00.

to be in the village. I haven't found it. I have spoken with several

:25:01.:25:05.

And this is what they're looking for.

:25:06.:25:10.

The ?12,000 diamond was launched into space last week by a London

:25:11.:25:13.

It's landed in Lincolnshire and is finders keepers.

:25:14.:25:20.

You we know it is somewhere with no phone reception.

:25:21.:25:27.

Here in Lea, I hunted out villagers to ask about the search,

:25:28.:25:30.

but no`one seemed bothered about looking for the lost diamond.

:25:31.:25:34.

Not seen anybody looking for it. It can't have come down in an office

:25:35.:25:41.

place, otherwise somebody would have seen it, unless they are keeping it

:25:42.:25:43.

quiet. Today's sighting turned out to be
