Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:00.:00:00.

One of the biggest shake ups of the rail network in years `

:00:00.:00:10.

concerns some services from this area could go.

:00:11.:00:14.

We get the reaction from rail passengers ` and ask what

:00:15.:00:21.

We know it makes a massive impact on the tourism trade. This is about how

:00:22.:00:30.

we deliver ?1 billion of investment in the North.

:00:31.:00:32.

We get the reaction from rail passengers ` and ask what

:00:33.:00:35.

We'd be stranded in our own little community. We be better off on the

:00:36.:00:51.

coach. I think we definitely need is more investments.

:00:52.:00:52.

Pushing back the boundaries ` the East Yorkshire residents who are

:00:53.:00:57.

The Grimsby MP who says the Labour party has too many women in it `

:00:58.:01:03.

I think it's pretty antiquated and it's disappointing Austin Mitchell,

:01:04.:01:17.

knowing that the Labour Party worked very hard to address this imbalance

:01:18.:01:19.

in parliaments. And an East Yorkshire man's

:01:20.:01:21.

remarkable weight loss ` how he lost And after today's heavy showers, and

:01:22.:01:39.

lighter datacom tomorrow. `` day to come.

:01:40.:01:43.

The economy of East Yorkshire will suffer

:01:44.:01:46.

a "devastating blow" if direct rail services between Bridlington

:01:47.:01:49.

That's according to a local rail expert,

:01:50.:01:53.

who says there's a good chance the service could be cancelled when

:01:54.:01:57.

Today is the last day of a government consultation

:01:58.:02:05.

on rail franchises in this area, as they work out where to spend one

:02:06.:02:10.

billion pounds of investment for the network.

:02:11.:02:12.

In a moment we will hear from the transport minister

:02:13.:02:14.

but first, here's our Business Correspondent Sarah Corker.

:02:15.:02:18.

Holidaymakers heading to the seaside this morning.

:02:19.:02:21.

This is one of 14 direct trains a day from Sheffield.

:02:22.:02:27.

But there's concern this service could be reduced

:02:28.:02:30.

They will not have the same passion about keeping

:02:31.:02:36.

services at Bridlington, Grimsby and Hull that we have.

:02:37.:02:39.

We know it makes a massive impact on the tourism trade.

:02:40.:02:42.

If we lose these services, it will be a devastating blow.

:02:43.:02:47.

This direct link is why some tourists visit Bridlington

:02:48.:02:49.

Even just one change makes it slower than a coach.

:02:50.:02:55.

It?s very important, or else probably wouldn't come.

:02:56.:03:01.

There is no direct service for you to come?

:03:02.:03:03.

The government has been asking the public how they?d like rail services

:03:04.:03:12.

This consultation document warns there will be trade`offs.

:03:13.:03:19.

Higher fares for newer trains and there could be a focus

:03:20.:03:22.

Last month, we told you about proposals to scrap

:03:23.:03:28.

direct services from Cleethorpes to Manchester Airport, with passengers

:03:29.:03:33.

Now there is a worry that the direct route from Bridlington to

:03:34.:03:39.

Sheffield and Doncaster could be under threat too.

:03:40.:03:42.

Campaigners say some services could be moved to busier routes in Leeds

:03:43.:03:47.

and Manchester, creating an East`West divide.

:03:48.:03:50.

No decisions have yet been made, but today in London the RMT protested.

:03:51.:03:59.

We already have some of the lowest investment

:04:00.:04:01.

Railways should operate for passengers, local communities and

:04:02.:04:08.

I don't believe that this particular document does any of that.

:04:09.:04:13.

Some businesses here feel they already get

:04:14.:04:16.

an inferior service compared to other parts of the country.

:04:17.:04:21.

They need more direct links, not less.

:04:22.:04:24.

They?re just leaving this part of the country in limbo

:04:25.:04:26.

Bridlington would suffer just like other places are suffering

:04:27.:04:32.

The government's pledge is better connections across the North.

:04:33.:04:38.

Rail users here want to make sure they get their fair share

:04:39.:04:41.

Earlier, I spoke to the transport minister

:04:42.:04:51.

Well, we do need to look at how we can best serve places

:04:52.:05:02.

like Cleethorpes and Bridlington, because currently the majority of

:05:03.:05:06.

people that come from Cleethorpes, for example, will terminate

:05:07.:05:09.

Whether we can have three services, which is possible, or whether we

:05:10.:05:16.

should have more people changing at Doncaster remains to be seen,

:05:17.:05:19.

but that is a very important route, particularly the route through

:05:20.:05:22.

Cleethorpes to Barton and people connect to the buses to get to Hull.

:05:23.:05:29.

It?s important that we maintain services in that part

:05:30.:05:31.

Was asking people to read a complicated 90 page document

:05:32.:05:38.

Well, it's a very complex matter, providing rail services

:05:39.:05:44.

1100 is a large number of responses and of course we had responses

:05:45.:05:50.

from organisations such as the trade unions and passenger groups,

:05:51.:05:52.

In other cases, people will have just looked at the parts of the

:05:53.:06:00.

document that refer to their own area and responded in that regard.

:06:01.:06:03.

Final question, if we were to do an interview in five years? time,

:06:04.:06:06.

do you think there would be more or less direct train services out

:06:07.:06:09.

Let's see what the consultation response is.

:06:10.:06:15.

I'm asking you, as Transport Minister,

:06:16.:06:19.

We will be in a better position in December when we have looked

:06:20.:06:29.

at the responses, but it's not just a case of through

:06:30.:06:32.

services, it's a case of frequency of services, the quality of rolling

:06:33.:06:37.

There are no proposals to close stations.

:06:38.:06:42.

Good to talk to you tonight, Minister.

:06:43.:06:55.

We'll have the latest on the injury to Hull City's big

:06:56.:06:59.

summer signing ` and what it could mean for their season.

:07:00.:07:05.

People in East Yorkshire are being urged to vote against plans

:07:06.:07:09.

Hull City Council wants to absorb places such as Hedon,

:07:10.:07:17.

Cottingham and Swanland into its control ` saying it would have

:07:18.:07:20.

But the East Riding of Yorkshire Council claims it's

:07:21.:07:25.

Now a campaign has started to get people

:07:26.:07:29.

to vote against the proposal next month, as Crispin Rolfe reports.

:07:30.:07:40.

East Riding towns on the edge of whole. The city council wants an

:07:41.:07:46.

inside its boundaries but East Riding doesn't and has organised a

:07:47.:07:51.

referendum. A new campaign is spreading here. Most are fighting

:07:52.:07:59.

change. It's very important because if we

:08:00.:08:03.

don't get the majority of the people engaging with the campaign is

:08:04.:08:07.

joining in with the referendum, the city council will regard that as a

:08:08.:08:11.

lack of interest. This is how they could expand into

:08:12.:08:15.

East Riding, with 12 parishes being put forward for the boundary

:08:16.:08:19.

commission to consider. Nine to the west of the city and three to the

:08:20.:08:23.

east. Today, few seem to want to leave the East Riding to become part

:08:24.:08:26.

of Hull. Leave it as it is. That's my

:08:27.:08:31.

opinion. I think they want to say they are

:08:32.:08:35.

bigger cities are making get a bigger cut of cash from the

:08:36.:08:39.

government. The border with Hull is where the

:08:40.:08:47.

East Riding wanted to stay. A postal referendum is being organised

:08:48.:08:50.

between the eighth and the 26th of December to drum up support. The

:08:51.:08:55.

referendum is not binding but could influence the commission. Hull City

:08:56.:09:00.

council says the argument is clear, ``, the area is Better Together when

:09:01.:09:03.

challenging for government investments.

:09:04.:09:06.

This is about council is working effectively together. Is the

:09:07.:09:14.

argument to remain the status quo? Know because every other area in the

:09:15.:09:18.

north are combining together for the benefits of their area and we are

:09:19.:09:25.

being left out in this region. Referendum's results will be

:09:26.:09:28.

announced at the end of September with both sides saying that a low

:09:29.:09:32.

votes will favour Hull's arguments, but ultimately any final decision

:09:33.:09:33.

will be up to the government. We want to hear from you

:09:34.:09:38.

on this story, do you think it would I have been speaking to the Mayor of

:09:39.:09:54.

Hadden. And sure there are merits in the

:09:55.:09:58.

arguments but unfortunately it is not all one`sided. There are lots

:09:59.:10:02.

more disadvantages for the residents of East Yorkshire on a particularly

:10:03.:10:05.

those communities potentially affected by the extension of the

:10:06.:10:11.

boundaries. What is the main reason why you don't want to be part of

:10:12.:10:15.

whole? There are a few reasons but lots of

:10:16.:10:20.

identity `` loss of identity, loss of decision`making and a complete

:10:21.:10:24.

change to our way of life. I natural issues because we fear that the ?50

:10:25.:10:28.

million in council tax that the residents of East Yorkshire

:10:29.:10:35.

currently pay will disappear. If it's not worried by people who

:10:36.:10:39.

are traumatised at the thought of having Hull as their address?

:10:40.:10:46.

I think not, no. We live where we live, we chose to live in parishes,

:10:47.:10:51.

villages and market towns. We did not have any choice to live in the

:10:52.:10:55.

city, it wasn't where we wanted to be.

:10:56.:10:59.

People are happy to work, happy to shop, happy to go out in Hull. Why

:11:00.:11:05.

don't `` why are they against being part of it?

:11:06.:11:10.

That's how it has always been. We are happy to shop and those who work

:11:11.:11:14.

in Hull and use the theatres and pay for the privilege. If we were not

:11:15.:11:18.

actually doing that, many of them would close. It's an interdependency

:11:19.:11:23.

thing. What about you, you are an estate

:11:24.:11:27.

agent, so you are worried about property prices?

:11:28.:11:34.

Not particularly. I am a chartered surveyor by profession so I have a

:11:35.:11:37.

wide cross`section in the work I do with property and prices.

:11:38.:11:42.

You have a lot of support those nights. What do you think the

:11:43.:11:46.

outcome of this vote is going to be? As a guessing man, what you think?

:11:47.:11:53.

I'm not guessing. We actually did a poll in the towel on the local

:11:54.:11:58.

blog. 85% or thereabouts of people who took part says no to the idea of

:11:59.:12:02.

the expansion of the boundaries. They also said no to the building of

:12:03.:12:06.

the green fields between the city and the villages. We think it is a

:12:07.:12:10.

foregone conclusion. What is your message to Hull City

:12:11.:12:14.

Council? We have worked together before in

:12:15.:12:18.

the past. East Riding and the city council work together in many

:12:19.:12:21.

regards and there is no reason why we cannot continue to do so. Why the

:12:22.:12:28.

need for this massive change? We can't fathom it.

:12:29.:12:29.

Brilliancy talk to you. We want to hear from you

Labour too soft. And East Yorkshire man's remarkable weight loss. How he

:14:41.:14:42.

lost 11 stone in just 12 months. I always give you a good write`up,

:14:43.:15:29.

Peter! Don't worry, Paul is back next week. We have had and still

:15:30.:15:35.

have some heavy showers out there at the moment. Some fairly sharp

:15:36.:15:38.

showers to end the day. The good news for tomorrow, with a couple of

:15:39.:15:44.

exceptions, does looks largely dry. It will be cooler but without the

:15:45.:15:48.

breeze it will still feel quite pleasant. Overall, much cooler than

:15:49.:15:53.

average this week. The area is flowing down from the North show a

:15:54.:15:59.

chilly feel, particularly by night where we could get down to single

:16:00.:16:04.

figures. The mottled cloud, the shower clouds and this area is

:16:05.:16:10.

producing some heavy downpour. It will develop into a largely dry

:16:11.:16:13.

night. Temperatures falling back into single figures down to around

:16:14.:16:19.

nine. Ten or 11 in the towns and cities. The sun will rise in the

:16:20.:16:28.

morning at 5:46am. The next high water in Skegness will be at 1:17am.

:16:29.:16:35.

As we go through the course of the morning, we might see a few showers

:16:36.:16:38.

slipping into southwestern parts of Lincolnshire. They will tend to die

:16:39.:16:45.

away. It does looks largely dry. Open cloud and sunny spells and the

:16:46.:16:49.

breeze will be gentle from the north`west. Elijah Breeze and we

:16:50.:16:51.

have had today but the error, particularly in the shade, you'll

:16:52.:16:54.

feel quite chilly at around 16 degrees. These are the temperatures

:16:55.:17:01.

we would expect in May. Cool for this time of year but if you step

:17:02.:17:05.

into the sun, it will feel much warmer. I dry at school started the

:17:06.:17:09.

day on Wednesday. We might see a few showers springing up. More organised

:17:10.:17:13.

rain spreading down from the North on Thursday and it will clear to the

:17:14.:17:17.

south on Friday. It will still be quite cold.

:17:18.:17:23.

I think he will need retraining when he gets back! See you tomorrow.

:17:24.:17:36.

The Grimsby MP Austin Mitchell has defended his comments about a female

:17:37.:17:38.

MPs amid criticism from his party. He will stand down next year. He

:17:39.:17:43.

told a Sunday newspaper that more women make labour weaker in

:17:44.:17:48.

Parliament. His comments had been dismissed by a female in PE.

:17:49.:17:53.

Austin Mitchell has been known for his flamboyant headline grabbing

:17:54.:17:56.

actions and opinions for many of his 37 years as Grimsby MP.

:17:57.:18:01.

But his comments in a Sunday paper, stating that increasing female MP

:18:02.:18:07.

numbers was weakening Parliament, has upset even his own party. Today

:18:08.:18:12.

he was standing by the comments. I think they change the tone of

:18:13.:18:15.

Parliament is because they are concerned with different issues. The

:18:16.:18:23.

lightning flash of three debates will be lost. I think they're more

:18:24.:18:29.

concerned with family issues and local issues.

:18:30.:18:35.

He says he feels enough has been done to realign the gender balance

:18:36.:18:39.

and a local parties should be able to choose their own candidates.

:18:40.:18:44.

What I said was true. I think a number of people recognise that it

:18:45.:18:48.

is true. The argument has to be dealt with. If I'm wrong, it's ivory

:18:49.:18:58.

busting the arguments that by `` people have said I am a male

:18:59.:19:03.

chauvinist. You can ask my wife! As my daughters. Across the Humber,

:19:04.:19:07.

the Labour MP for East Hollies angry.

:19:08.:19:12.

The Labour Party try to address that issue and bring more women into

:19:13.:19:15.

politics. I think we are doing a good job but this does not help.

:19:16.:19:23.

Austin Mitchell should be out camping is not complaining.

:19:24.:19:31.

He was chosen from a short list `` the next candidate for Grimsby

:19:32.:19:35.

indicated she would be talking to Austin Mitchell about the article.

:19:36.:19:39.

Here in Grimsby, there has been little support for his views.

:19:40.:19:43.

We need someone more in touch with what is going on in the world, like

:19:44.:19:47.

the cost of living. He's lucky he kept his seat here for

:19:48.:19:50.

all these years. That has the more women to give our

:19:51.:19:54.

point of view. Esther Mitchell said he simply

:19:55.:20:00.

wanted to open debate. My wife thinks I should keep my head

:20:01.:20:08.

down! A bit late for that now!

Ryan was hit while riding on his bike. He is making progress and his

:20:33.:20:40.

family are getting ready to welcome him home. There was a big response

:20:41.:20:44.

on this story is particularly the campaign to make bicycle helmets

:20:45.:20:45.

compulsory. Former Hull City star Dean Windass

to see ` a player limping Scottish international

and examinations over Speaking today, former Tigers star

:21:47.:21:48.

Dean Windass said that the squad possessed enough quality to overcome

:21:49.:21:53.

the potential loss of Snodgrass. Stephen Quinn came on, and they

:21:54.:22:00.

played very well when he came on. You?ve got David Meyler

:22:01.:22:03.

on the bench who?ll be chomping at It's unfortunate

but Steve will look out. Whoever takes Snodgrass's place,

came closest to scoring, but Snodgrass ?compatriot Andy

from everyone today was brilliant. That's the main aim ? to stay

Alex Bruce also collected an injury, although it's not considered

:23:15.:23:19.

as serious as that of the Scots. Scunthorpe United have signed a new

striker after a poor start to the season. They lost their first two
