Grimsby business owner Phil Green knows any day could be his last
as he waits to find out if life`saving surgery is possible.
I really don't know what to do with life, whether to plan anything,
I've been told not to go out of the UK for a holiday.
Some nights I don't go to bed, or I don't go to sleep,
because I think if I go to sleep, that will be the end.
Phil has an aortic aneurysm, a bulge in the main artery in the body which

That was then cancelled and moved to the 24th.
That too was then cancelled and now it is on the 9th

It is very, very important to me but it doesn't seem to be important
No`one from the Hull and East Yorkshire Hospital NHS Trust

So signs have been put up to tell drinkers to shush.
Most are in the streets around Carholme Road where residents
and students literally live side by side.
A whole host of organisations are behind the signs, including the
It hasn't been done before and we're not sure if it will work.
I don't think there is an easy solution or an overnight solution.
The signs are fairly small and at least 6ft off the ground.
If they are fuelled with alcohol they will not be reading any signs.
I agree that a lot of students are too loud.
A similar poster scheme was tried around ten years ago.
This new campaign will also use branded wrstibands and
In an area which has seen a massive increase in student housing over
the last decade, residents hope it will make the minority of
Tonight, I spoke to David Mitchell who?s lived in Lincoln
for 40 years and is a member of the West End Residents' Association.
I asked him what how bad the problem is.
It is appalling. It really is. We have had it for ten years. We have a
wonderful residents Association, we have four local councillors who are
superb. We are not helped by the university authorities. We are
helped by the student union and it is the lack of police with this
noise, this appalling noise and bad behaviour, it is now until 5am. Do
you think this campaign will work and we'll sort the problem out? I
hope you can see me with a rise smile. I met a young mother from the
West End, she was on her way home from work, she was looking at one of
these notices and she said it was pathetic. It doesn't work at all.
What about those people saying if you live in an area three miles away
from the University, what do you expect? Are you telling me I have to
move out? We were there long before the university and the university
was put there without any planning or foresight from Lincolnshire
County Council turn at Lincoln City council, and we are not going to be
forced out seven nights a week we have this noise sometimes.
A consultation has begun into the future of library services in Hull.
People are being asked what they think of city council run libraries.
The authority says budget cuts mean it has difficult choices to make
about the future of libraries in the city.
A cool and cloudy day to come. The cloud has broken and there are clear
spells. Paul cloudy pushing down into parts of East Yorkshire with
some rain. The temperatures are lowest across Lincolnshire where the
skies remain here is. Tomorrow, more cloud, and it is breezy. There is a
risk of showery bursts of rain spreading down from the north. A
moderate breeze from the West, with temperatures lifting to 16 or 17, so
it will feel cool under the cloud cover. Friday and Saturday similar,
but it is not a bad weekend. Wet and windy on Monday.
We are back in the morning, first bulletin is at 6:25am. See you
tomorrow night. Same time, same place. Take care.
Good evening. For many of us a bank holiday looms large and so does a
change in the weather patterns. Is the that good or bad news? Only you
can decide that. For the time being we've got similar weather patterns.
Another chilly day tomorrow, with some sunshine but probably more
showers. Today's showers are fading from the east but we are seeing

and later in the night northern England. You won't be as cold here
tonight. Further south, is chilly. With clear skies in rural areas down
to just 4 or 5
