Now, on BBC One, it's time for the news where you are.

:00:00.:00:07.

A man from Grimsby, who has a potentially fatal heart condition,

:00:08.:00:10.

says his life is being put at greater risk because his hospital

:00:11.:00:14.

Phil Green, who's 65, has a chance of survival with surgery.

:00:15.:00:20.

But he says every time his appointment is cancelled,

:00:21.:00:23.

Grimsby business owner Phil Green knows any day could be his last

:00:24.:00:32.

as he waits to find out if life`saving surgery is possible.

:00:33.:00:37.

I really don't know what to do with life, whether to plan anything,

:00:38.:00:40.

I've been told not to go out of the UK for a holiday.

:00:41.:00:44.

Some nights I don't go to bed, or I don't go to sleep,

:00:45.:00:49.

because I think if I go to sleep, that will be the end.

:00:50.:00:55.

Phil has an aortic aneurysm, a bulge in the main artery in the body which

:00:56.:00:59.

It's caused by a weakness in the blood vessel wall.

:01:00.:01:04.

As blood passes through the weakened area, the pressure causes it to

:01:05.:01:07.

If it bursts, death usually occurs within minutes.

:01:08.:01:13.

But after being referred to hospital in June, he was given an

:01:14.:01:20.

That was then cancelled and moved to the 24th.

:01:21.:01:26.

That too was then cancelled and now it is on the 9th

:01:27.:01:29.

of September, four weeks after the original appointment.

:01:30.:01:32.

It is very, very important to me but it doesn't seem to be important

:01:33.:01:37.

No`one from the Hull and East Yorkshire Hospital NHS Trust

:01:38.:01:47.

was available for interview, but they did send a statement saying,

:01:48.:01:50.

"We would like to acknowledge his concerns and apologise

:01:51.:01:54.

"Every effort will be made to ensure upcoming appointments

:01:55.:01:59.

But this health watchdog says this is a big problem for the trust.

:02:00.:02:06.

The Care Quality Commission, when they came to visit

:02:07.:02:09.

and inspect the trust service this year, they picked up on around 20%

:02:10.:02:14.

So that is a lot of people being told quite late

:02:15.:02:20.

in the day that their appointment wasn't going to be taking place.

:02:21.:02:23.

Phil says he just wants the best possible chance

:02:24.:02:25.

of survival, but says, so far, that's not what he's been given.

:02:26.:02:34.

Street signs are being put up in part

:02:35.:02:36.

of Lincoln to try to stop what local people say are "noisy students."

:02:37.:02:39.

It's hoped they'll encourage students to be more considerate

:02:40.:02:43.

Going out drinking is part of university life but here

:02:44.:02:51.

in Lincoln some residents say they suffer from rowdy students making

:02:52.:02:55.

This man lives in the West End area of the city and

:02:56.:03:02.

says when the students move back into town he has to move back into

:03:03.:03:06.

They are up till four o'clock in the morning, coming down the

:03:07.:03:12.

street, shouting, and in some cases getting absolutely silly and kicking

:03:13.:03:19.

over bins and there are instances of vandalism on car, but it's the

:03:20.:03:24.

So signs have been put up to tell drinkers to shush.

:03:25.:03:31.

Most are in the streets around Carholme Road where residents

:03:32.:03:34.

and students literally live side by side.

:03:35.:03:38.

A whole host of organisations are behind the signs, including the

:03:39.:03:41.

It hasn't been done before and we're not sure if it will work.

:03:42.:03:48.

I don't think there is an easy solution or an overnight solution.

:03:49.:03:52.

The signs are fairly small and at least 6ft off the ground.

:03:53.:03:56.

If they are fuelled with alcohol they will not be reading any signs.

:03:57.:04:07.

I agree that a lot of students are too loud.

:04:08.:04:09.

A similar poster scheme was tried around ten years ago.

:04:10.:04:15.

This new campaign will also use branded wrstibands and

:04:16.:04:21.

In an area which has seen a massive increase in student housing over

:04:22.:04:26.

the last decade, residents hope it will make the minority of

:04:27.:04:29.

Tonight, I spoke to David Mitchell who?s lived in Lincoln

:04:30.:04:38.

for 40 years and is a member of the West End Residents' Association.

:04:39.:04:41.

I asked him what how bad the problem is.

:04:42.:05:05.

It is appalling. It really is. We have had it for ten years. We have a

:05:06.:05:16.

wonderful residents Association, we have four local councillors who are

:05:17.:05:19.

superb. We are not helped by the university authorities. We are

:05:20.:05:21.

helped by the student union and it is the lack of police with this

:05:22.:05:24.

noise, this appalling noise and bad behaviour, it is now until 5am. Do

:05:25.:05:28.

you think this campaign will work and we'll sort the problem out? I

:05:29.:05:31.

hope you can see me with a rise smile. I met a young mother from the

:05:32.:05:34.

West End, she was on her way home from work, she was looking at one of

:05:35.:05:39.

these notices and she said it was pathetic. It doesn't work at all.

:05:40.:05:45.

What about those people saying if you live in an area three miles away

:05:46.:05:50.

from the University, what do you expect? Are you telling me I have to

:05:51.:05:56.

move out? We were there long before the university and the university

:05:57.:06:01.

was put there without any planning or foresight from Lincolnshire

:06:02.:06:05.

County Council turn at Lincoln City council, and we are not going to be

:06:06.:06:10.

forced out seven nights a week we have this noise sometimes.

:06:11.:06:13.

A consultation has begun into the future of library services in Hull.

:06:14.:06:16.

People are being asked what they think of city council run libraries.

:06:17.:06:18.

The authority says budget cuts mean it has difficult choices to make

:06:19.:06:21.

about the future of libraries in the city.

:06:22.:06:35.

A cool and cloudy day to come. The cloud has broken and there are clear

:06:36.:06:45.

spells. Paul cloudy pushing down into parts of East Yorkshire with

:06:46.:06:49.

some rain. The temperatures are lowest across Lincolnshire where the

:06:50.:06:56.

skies remain here is. Tomorrow, more cloud, and it is breezy. There is a

:06:57.:07:02.

risk of showery bursts of rain spreading down from the north. A

:07:03.:07:09.

moderate breeze from the West, with temperatures lifting to 16 or 17, so

:07:10.:07:13.

it will feel cool under the cloud cover. Friday and Saturday similar,

:07:14.:07:20.

but it is not a bad weekend. Wet and windy on Monday.

:07:21.:07:24.

We are back in the morning, first bulletin is at 6:25am. See you

:07:25.:07:29.

tomorrow night. Same time, same place. Take care.

:07:30.:07:37.

Good evening. For many of us a bank holiday looms large and so does a

:07:38.:07:45.

change in the weather patterns. Is the that good or bad news? Only you

:07:46.:07:50.

can decide that. For the time being we've got similar weather patterns.

:07:51.:07:54.

Another chilly day tomorrow, with some sunshine but probably more

:07:55.:07:57.

showers. Today's showers are fading from the east but we are seeing

:07:58.:08:01.

outbreaks of rain in parts of Scotland, parts of Northern Ireland

:08:02.:08:03.

and later in the night northern England. You won't be as cold here

:08:04.:08:08.

tonight. Further south, is chilly. With clear skies in rural areas down

:08:09.:08:11.

to just 4 or 5
