That's all from the BBC News at Six, so

Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North. The headlines tonight:

:00:00.:00:08.

Passengers' anger at an above inflation rise in train fares.

:00:09.:00:17.

I think it is disgusting. For people in the north it could mean their

:00:18.:00:27.

fears are arising by four times their salary. ``fares are rising.

:00:28.:00:47.

A murder suspect is accidentally let out of jail ` a high`level

:00:48.:00:50.

Fishermen banned from fishing, after wind farm bosses take them to court

:00:51.:01:03.

I'm at Glanford Park, after a difficult start to the season can

Scunthorpe United turn their fortunes round tonight.

:01:09.:01:12.

Rare Spanish birds make their nest at a local nature reserve.

:01:13.:01:29.

As rail fare increases are announced today, a transport campaign group

:01:30.:01:34.

says passengers in this area are not being fairly effective.

:01:35.:01:55.

Based on our estimates, is season`ticket prices go up as

:01:56.:02:01.

expected, some passengers could pay hundreds of pounds more. Those

:02:02.:02:07.

travelling between Grantham in London would be almost ?7 for the

:02:08.:02:11.

year of those using the Hull to Leeds route could be charged almost

:02:12.:02:49.

?400 of a season`ticket over ?2000. ``Grantham to London would be almost

:02:50.:02:50.

?7000. So news today that passengers could

:02:51.:02:58.

pay hundreds of pounds more for their season tickets next year

:02:59.:03:01.

has not come as any surprise to If they can't afford it, they

:03:02.:03:04.

will shut them down in the end. It goes up every year, services

:03:05.:03:11.

are being cut, and really it should For people in the North, will try

the Mac to find a way to avoid avoid paying for affairs which are rising

:04:05.:04:08.

much more than the rate of inflation. We cannot create wages

:04:09.:04:17.

which go everyone unless we invest in our vital railway infrastructure.

:04:18.:04:24.

Labour say that customers are being ripped off. They want the government

:04:25.:04:28.

to pay more so that taxpayers pay less. More than a quarter of every

:04:29.:04:34.

ticket bought goes to investment in the network. This year the

:04:35.:04:41.

government capped fee rises keeping them in line with inflation. `` fear

:04:42.:05:02.

rises. `` fare rises. Here is how to get in touch if you want to give us

:05:03.:05:04.

an e`mail. We would like to hear from you if

:05:05.:05:21.

you are a regular train user have to buy a long`distance season`ticket.

:05:22.:05:29.

Train passengers and the North of England have been promised a

:05:30.:05:32.

world`class rail network by the government. Three companies have

:05:33.:05:57.

been short listed for Northern Rail and TransPennine.

:05:58.:06:02.

His wife thinks he should keep his head down ` now Austin Mitchell's

:06:03.:06:05.

views on women MPs prompts more reaction.

:06:06.:06:12.

have reacted angrily to legal action banning them from part of the North

:06:13.:06:16.

Sea. The High Court injunction has been taken out by Dong Energy which

:06:17.:06:19.

wants to carry out survey work for a new wind farm in local fishing

:06:20.:06:27.

grounds. Here's our Environment Correspondent, Paul Murphy.

:06:28.:06:31.

This is the first time Dong Energy or I think any other wind energy

:06:32.:06:35.

take this course of action. An investigation is underway after a

:06:36.:06:49.

Banning of fishermen. There are plans to build up to 90 wind

:06:50.:07:01.

turbines here that the developers need to fishermen out of the way to

:07:02.:07:10.

complete the initial survey work. The relationship with the fishermen

:07:11.:07:17.

has become increasingly strained. Dong energy offered some packages to

:07:18.:07:24.

fishermen but fishermen here say they have been offered nothing at

:07:25.:07:29.

all. When that failed, an injunction was sort and was one. `` was sought

:07:30.:07:41.

and was won. Dong Energy has said that

:07:42.:08:10.

the failed negotiations left them with no choice but to get the

:08:11.:08:12.

fishermen banned. We have made a number of offers, we have increased

:08:13.:08:15.

those offers, we have done rather a lock to reach a settlement. It is

:08:16.:08:18.

worth pointing out that this is the first time that Dong Energy, or I

:08:19.:08:22.

think, any other wind farm developer offshore has had to take this course

:08:23.:08:25.

of action. And so, attempt at offshore has had to take this course

:08:26.:08:28.

of action. And so, attempts at negotiation are

:08:29.:08:31.

continuing between one of the East's oldest industries and one of

:08:32.:08:33.

its newest. near Scunthorpe this afternoon

:08:34.:08:35.

after the M180 westbound had to be closed when a lorry hit a bridge.

:08:36.:08:45.

It happened at the junction with the M181 northbound at about two

:08:46.:08:48.

o'clock. The lorry ` which was carrying a forklift truck ` hit an

:08:49.:08:51.

overhead bridge, leaving debris and oil in the road. Diversions are

:08:52.:08:53.

still in place. The last of a group of travellers

:08:54.:08:57.

have left a site in East Yorkshire. They've been camping at the King

:08:58.:09:00.

George the fifth playing fields in Hessle since last week. East Riding

:09:01.:09:03.

of Yorkshire Council had given them Hull's borders say they'll take

:09:04.:09:06.

their campaign to the streets to ensure voters give a clear message

:09:07.:09:19.

to the Boundary Commission. Yesterday saw the launch of a group

:09:20.:09:21.

called "Hands off the East Riding". Hull City Council says a bigger city

:09:22.:09:24.

would bring financial benefits. But many insist there's no need to

:09:25.:09:27.

change the boundary. Phil says this. While Dave is an

:09:28.:10:06.

howl and says says this. `` Dave is in Hull. Austin Mitchell told a

:10:07.:10:19.

Sunday newspaper that women focus on family rather than on complex issues

:10:20.:10:30.

like Iraq. I think they are more concerned with family issues and

:10:31.:10:38.

local issues than with ideas. Diana Johnson joins me in the studio. What

:10:39.:10:46.

do you make of his comments? He is talking absolute nonsense. The idea

:10:47.:10:52.

that women MPs are not combat in the Commons is rubbish. I think he's

:10:53.:10:57.

using stereotypes here and it does not reflect what is happening in

:10:58.:11:01.

Parliament today. He was elected 37 years ago and is leaving at the next

:11:02.:11:07.

election and we have a great new female candidate in Grimsby and I

:11:08.:11:12.

think he is simply wrong. I have spoken in nearly 300 based of this

:11:13.:11:15.

Parliament and he has spoken about 40. I thought you Labour MPs stuck

:11:16.:11:24.

together but of a slipknot. Not when he is wrong on this. `` but

:11:25.:11:41.

obviously not. He says you are only issued on small issues. All members

:11:42.:11:47.

of Parliament are interested in big ideas, of course we are. He says

:11:48.:12:02.

that it's time to call it a day on all women selections. This was

:12:03.:12:09.

viewed as a way of getting more women into Parliament and is a

:12:10.:12:13.

short`term measure to get some women in. When Austin Mitchell was elected

:12:14.:12:22.

in 1977, I am sure he was on an all`male short list then. If the

:12:23.:12:29.

best member of Parliament as a man, then so be it? Having an all`male

:12:30.:12:38.

short list is not the way to get the best person and by taking this step

:12:39.:12:45.

we have a short`term measure to get a more representative parliament. I

:12:46.:12:50.

think these short lists serve a purpose here.

:12:51.:13:17.

women in the commons will weaken Parliament? Or agree with Diana's

:13:18.:13:21.

comments? Also are you supportive of all women shortlists for selecting

:13:22.:13:24.

The Ministry of Justice is investigating how a prisoner,

:13:25.:13:45.

accused of murder, was accidentally released earlier this

:13:46.:13:54.

month. He was found a number of hours later and taken back into

:13:55.:13:57.

custody. The jail has recently been criticised by inspectors. And today

:13:58.:14:00.

the government has been defending the prison system against claims it

:14:01.:14:03.

How did a prisoner held within these walls come to be accidentally

:14:04.:14:06.

released by prison officers. It's a question the ministry of justice are

:14:07.:14:09.

trying to get to the bottom of. Martynas Kupstys was supposed to be

:14:10.:14:12.

on his way to Lincoln Crown Court to face trial ` accused of committing

:14:13.:14:15.

murder earlier this year ` instead he was set free.

:14:16.:14:18.

It's been reported he was let out after a mix`up with another prisoner

:14:19.:14:21.

and that he tried to tell staff but the mistake was only discovered when

:14:22.:14:24.

he didn't show up at court. A number of newspapers have reported that he

:14:25.:14:28.

was found three hours later sitting opposite the prison.

:14:29.:14:30.

Mr Kupstys and his fellow defendant's trial collapsed for

:14:31.:14:32.

legal reasons, they'll face a retrial next March.

:14:33.:14:34.

Lincoln Prison's already been criticised this year ` a report in

:14:35.:14:45.

April said there were problems with drugs, violence and prisoner safety.

:14:46.:14:50.

It's also one of the most overcrowded prison's in the UK.

:14:51.:14:59.

On a day when the government's defended the prison service and says

:15:00.:15:14.

its not in crisis, the charity the Howard League for Penal Reform says

:15:15.:15:17.

a mistake like this suggests otherwise.

:15:18.:15:23.

We have seen all sorts of issues at this point in time. We have

:15:24.:15:33.

challenges it with an increased population that was not expected in

:15:34.:15:37.

the last 12 months. That is not a crisis in our prisons. There are

:15:38.:15:45.

pressures we are facing but there is not a crisis.

:15:46.:15:48.

type of incident where a prisoner is accidentally released is very rare

:15:49.:15:52.

and regrettable. It's appointed a senior governor from another prison

:15:53.:15:54.

This sort of matted mess, as it were, is unique, being the first

:15:55.:16:27.

This view over Hull was taken by Steve Wright.

:16:28.:16:43.

It has been a chilly day and that will be the same tomorrow mostly

:16:44.:17:01.

drive. .``mostly dry. The candidate is not look too bad after some

:17:02.:17:05.

showers on Thursday and Friday. There are still some showers around

:17:06.:17:12.

but they will die out through the course of the evening leaving us

:17:13.:17:15.

with largely dry conditions overnight. It will be a cool night

:17:16.:17:19.

temperatures around nine or 10 degrees. It will be somewhat cooler

:17:20.:17:28.

in the countryside. Your next high water will be just before three

:17:29.:17:34.

o'clock tomorrow morning. It will be a chilly start particularly in the

:17:35.:17:40.

countryside but largely dry with broken cloud and sunny spells. Most

:17:41.:17:45.

places will avoid rain and will stay dry. Temperatures will still be well

:17:46.:17:51.

below average. We should be around 21 degrees 22 degrees but out of the

:17:52.:17:56.

sunshine it will be around 16 degrees. Looking further ahead, it

:17:57.:18:03.

will be a cool day on Thursday and will close or from the north and at

:18:04.:18:06.

times there will be some showery rain around. On Friday it will be

:18:07.:18:14.

sunny spells and scattered showers. There will be a few early showers

:18:15.:18:19.

for Saturday but it will dry out for largely dry weekend and temperatures

:18:20.:18:22.

will recover slightly over the course of the weekend. A little bit

:18:23.:18:27.

cold at night but not too bad during the day.

:18:28.:18:33.

A 21`year`old showjumper from Lincolnshire has been selected

:18:34.:18:35.

to represent Team GB at the World Equestrian Games.

:18:36.:18:41.

Spencer Roe from South Hykeham near Lincoln is

:18:42.:18:43.

If his team jump well, it could secure Great Britain an

:18:44.:18:47.

Jill Archbold has been to meet him and his horse.

:18:48.:18:59.

Practising at home ` a young horse and a young rider,

:19:00.:19:02.

At 21, Spencer Roe is at the of beginning

:19:03.:19:10.

of his career as a professional show`jumper, but already,

:19:11.:19:12.

he has been called up to represent his country at the highest level.

:19:13.:19:24.

His competitive career started at age 12, competing on ponies.

:19:25.:19:37.

But Spencer's family never thought this was the beginning of a career.

:19:38.:19:43.

If you had told me a year ago that we would be standing here,

:19:44.:20:01.

saying my son was going to compete, I would have laughed at you, because

:20:02.:20:04.

The other Lincolnshire member of Team GB is Spencer's horse,

:20:05.:20:13.

called Wonder Why, but known affectionately as Disney.

:20:14.:20:38.

We have to trust each other to jump these bigger fences.

:20:39.:20:41.

He has been with the family for six years.

:20:42.:20:50.

At the end of the day, if you don't have that, you can be

:20:51.:20:56.

as good a rider as you want, but if you haven't got the horse,

:20:57.:20:59.

So we have a big partnership between us two,

:21:00.:21:04.

and we have to trust each them, and he does not want to throw me.

:21:05.:21:07.

The pair have already competed for their country in the

:21:08.:21:09.

Nation's Cup, the equestrian equivalent of the Premier League.

:21:10.:21:17.

Their jumping has helped the team avoid relegation.

:21:18.:21:19.

For a 21`year`old to break through into a senior championship team,

:21:20.:21:21.

that is an outstanding achievement, and it shows not only his skill,

:21:22.:21:24.

but also the support package that surrounds him.

:21:25.:21:31.

If Spencer's team jump well, they could secure their Olympic

:21:32.:21:33.

qualification, and this 21`year`old could be

:21:34.:21:35.

a step closer to representing his country in Rio, 2016.

:21:36.:21:42.

What is behind the pools start for Scunthorpe? ``poor start. It seems

:21:43.:22:08.

to be the meet up in class that has led to the defeats. `` the leap up.

:22:09.:22:32.

They are a good team. He is a good manager. I think by the end of the

:22:33.:22:45.

year we will stay up. Is it time to hit the panic button yet? I don't

:22:46.:22:51.

think so after two games but I think there is a sense of disappointment

:22:52.:22:57.

after the euphoria of coming up from the lower division. It has not quite

:22:58.:23:03.

content van which is one reason why the manager has acted and brought in

:23:04.:23:07.

three new players in the last 48 hours. Today he brought in as

:23:08.:23:16.

goalkeeper on loan from Peterborough. The regular goalkeeper

:23:17.:23:26.

is injured. I wonder how difficult they found it to make the transition

:23:27.:23:31.

between leaks. I think perspective is a big word to use at this stage

:23:32.:23:38.

of the season and the quality of opposition with a Swindon and

:23:39.:23:43.

Preston being in the top six has been hard. We will see where we are

:23:44.:23:49.

in a week. That is the diplomatic answer. They are playing Fleetwood

:23:50.:23:54.

tonight. And BBC Radio Humberside will have

:23:55.:24:08.

commentary of Scunthorpe United You'd normally need to travel to the

:24:09.:24:11.

Mediterranean to see one of these. But we only went as far as Frampton

:24:12.:24:48.

Marsh ` to film this Glossy Ibis. And we weren't the only ones `

:24:49.:24:51.

trying to get a good view. spotted in places like southern

:24:52.:24:55.

Spain. But with European wetlands being

:24:56.:25:00.

drained ` it's thought this one flew hundreds of miles in favour of a

to him and he does not seem phased by all the attention he is getting.

:25:29.:25:34.

He arrived here in June along with a female who ascends left and not

:25:35.:25:38.

before a team here could film flirting. `` who has since left.

:25:39.:26:00.

And then they made an even bigger discovery.

:26:01.:26:09.

But his partner has been spotted recently in Spalding and Rutland.

:26:10.:26:16.

Maybe next year we might even have some checks. ``some chicks. Rail

:26:17.:26:37.

fares are on the rise. Tomorrow's weather will be dry and bright with

:26:38.:26:42.

sunny spells and occasional showers. It will be warm in the afternoon.
