Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:00.:00:00.

The man who says his life is being put at risk

:00:07.:00:11.

Signs go up around Lincoln telling drunken students to be quiet.

:00:12.:00:37.

I gauge the latest reaction to this attempt to get students to keep the

:00:38.:00:42.

noise down. The roar

:00:43.:00:45.

of a Lincolnshire jet engine that's And the 25`foot tall plant that's

:00:46.:00:47.

broken through the roof I will be back later in the

:00:48.:00:58.

programme with the weather. A man from Grimsby who has

:00:59.:01:20.

a potentially fatal heart condition says his life is being put at

:01:21.:01:23.

greater risk because his hospital Phil Green, who's 65,

:01:24.:01:31.

has a heart defect which means he Grimsby business owner Phil Green

of the UK for 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

:02:07.:02:18.

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

:02:19.:02:22.

carries blood away from the heart. It is caused by a weakness

:02:23.:02:25.

in the blood vessel wall. As blood passes through the weakened

:02:26.:02:28.

area, the pressure causes it to If it bursts, death usually

occurs within minutes. If it ruptures,

:02:32.:02:34.

that is a medical emergency. It is a significant event,

someone would certainly know there The symptoms vary, they might have

:02:40.:02:41.

abdominal pain or chest pain. They might feel nauseated

or sweat. Their family would certainly know

hospital in June, he was given an That too was then cancelled

:03:00.:03:03.

and now it is on the 9th of September, four weeks

:03:04.:03:09.

after the original appointment. It is very, very important to me

:03:10.:03:13.

but it doesn't seem to be important To me, I want to keep living,

:03:14.:03:17.

as we all do. No`one from the Hull and

:03:18.:03:37.

East Yorkshire Hospital NHS Trust was available for interview, but

:03:38.:03:39.

they did send a statement saying, "We would like to acknowledge his

:03:40.:03:44.

concerns and apologise "Every effort will be made to ensure

:03:45.:03:52.

upcoming appointments But this health watchdog says this

:03:53.:03:57.

is a big problem for the trust. The Care Quality Commission,

:03:58.:04:02.

when they came to visit and inspect the trust service this

:04:03.:04:04.

year, they picked up on around 20% So that is a lot

:04:05.:04:07.

of people being told quite late in the day that their appointment

:04:08.:04:13.

wasn't going to be taking place. Phil says he just wants

:04:14.:04:16.

the best possible chance of survival, but says, so far,

:04:17.:04:18.

that is not what he's been given. We want to hear from you

:04:19.:04:24.

on this story, have you had a similar experience to

:04:25.:04:28.

Phil, maybe you are a doctor or a nurse and have experience of this

problem from the other side? Street signs are being put up in

:04:33.:05:05.

Lincoln to try to stop what local The signs are being placed

:05:06.:05:08.

in the West End of the city ahead of Freshers Week, as part

:05:09.:05:16.

of a new campaign called Shush. It's hoped it will encourage

:05:17.:05:19.

students to be more considerate What evidence is there that the

:05:20.:05:39.

students are the problem? There are no specific figures that look at

:05:40.:05:45.

student anti`social behaviour but the total number of anti`social

:05:46.:05:49.

behaviour reported in the city centre was 78 last year but the

:05:50.:05:54.

month before this shouldn't population arrived there were more

:05:55.:06:00.

so that suggests it is not just the students that are the issue. People

:06:01.:06:06.

here say that freshers week last year was the worst they have

:06:07.:06:11.

suffered and in all these signs will be one way of giving students the

:06:12.:06:20.

message to be quiet. Going out drinking is part of university life

:06:21.:06:23.

better here in Lincoln some residents say they suffer from rowdy

:06:24.:06:28.

students. This man lives in the West End area of the city and says when

:06:29.:06:32.

the students move back into town he has to move back into his back

bedroom to get any sleep. They are up till four o'clock in the morning

:06:41.:06:44.

shouting the street and in some cases getting absolutely silly and

:06:45.:06:48.

kicking over bins and there are instances of vandalism that it is

:06:49.:07:19.

the biggest problem with the noise. I don't think there is an easy or

:07:20.:07:23.

overnight solution. Local residents want to go to sleep and it is that

:07:24.:07:28.

kind of behaviour they are dealing with. Young people really need to

:07:29.:07:35.

have respect for the neighbourhood and be part of the community. The

:07:36.:07:41.

size of fairly small and at least six feet off the ground so will

:07:42.:07:45.

anyone take notice? I don't think so. If they are fuelled with alcohol

:07:46.:07:51.

they will not be reading any signs and just having a good time. I agree

:07:52.:08:00.

that a lot of students are to load. I am very allowed. A similar post a

:08:01.:08:05.

similar poster scheme was tried around ten years ago. In an area

:08:06.:08:13.

which has seen a massive increase in student housing over the last

:08:14.:08:18.

decade, residents hope it will make the minority of troublemakers drink

:08:19.:08:19.

up and shut up. You might also have a view on this

:08:20.:08:24.

story as well, do you have problems with noise? Maybe you are a student

:08:25.:08:28.

and think you are being unfairly The Humber Bridge has reopened after

:08:29.:08:52.

being closed in the afternoon. It is because of a police incident on the

:08:53.:08:55.

bridge. The bridge. There are still long delays. A consultation has

:08:56.:09:04.

begun to the future of library services in Holland. ``in Hull.

:09:05.:09:20.

It's a sure sign that we are entering

:09:21.:09:22.

the general election campaign as politicians from all sides try

:09:23.:09:25.

The latest national opinion poll saw Labour overturn a narrow lead

:09:26.:09:29.

for the Tories and now there's a new set of polls

:09:30.:09:35.

They suggest the Conservatives could face

:09:36.:09:37.

a tough battle to hang`on to seats like Lincoln at the next election.

:09:38.:09:44.

The polls, which have been commissioned

:09:45.:09:50.

by the Tory donor Lord Ashcroft, show Labour ahead in Lincoln

:09:51.:09:53.

Our Political Editor Tim Iredale is here.

:09:54.:09:56.

We know that voters in certain towns and cities can give us a big clue

:09:57.:10:01.

as to the outcome of a general election.

:10:02.:10:03.

Lincoln, for example, generally chooses an MP

:10:04.:10:08.

from the party that goes on to form the government of the day.

:10:09.:10:11.

In 2010 the seat was won by Conservative Karl McCartney.

:10:12.:10:16.

Lincoln is what the opinion pollsters describe

:10:17.:10:17.

In any general election parties want to win as many seats as possible

:10:18.:10:32.

next year it looks as if it will be very close. What is interesting

:10:33.:10:42.

about areas like Lincoln and Grimsby is that the party that a second has

:10:43.:10:47.

to try to win that seat if it is to stand any chance.

:10:48.:11:02.

The poll of constituencies, commissioned by the former

:11:03.:11:04.

and Tory donor Lord Ashcroft ` Labour have established a small lead

:11:05.:11:09.

Labour are on 37% ` four points ahead of the Tories.

:11:10.:11:13.

These polls have around a 3% margin of error and are the only surveys of

:11:14.:11:16.

Polling has also taken place in Great Grimsby `

:11:17.:11:20.

where the current Labour MP Austin Mitchell will step down next year.

:11:21.:11:23.

The figures show Labour ahead on 37%, but with UKIP in second place

:11:24.:11:26.

Grimsby has only had two MPs since the 1970s. But now it is more of a

:11:27.:11:43.

marginal and more of a target for the Conservatives and also as a

:11:44.:11:44.

target for UKIP. Remember, opinion polls always

:11:45.:11:50.

should be treated with caution. They are a snapshot of voters'

:11:51.:11:52.

views at this moment in time. Any politician will tell you

:11:53.:11:55.

the only poll that matters is I'm joined now by David Mitchell,

:11:56.:11:58.

who's lived in Lincoln for 40 years and is a member of The West End

:11:59.:12:11.

Resident's Association. What is it about living near a

:12:12.:12:20.

university that is so hard? Is it students coming home late at night?

:12:21.:12:27.

It is appalling. We have had it for ten years and we have a wonderful

:12:28.:12:32.

residents Association and for local councillors who are absolutely

:12:33.:12:36.

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

:12:37.:12:40.

however helped by the students union and it is the lack of police with

:12:41.:12:47.

this appalling noise and bad behaviour. It is now until around

:12:48.:12:51.

five o'clock in the morning which is intolerable. Do you think this

:12:52.:12:56.

campaign will work and sort the problem out? I hope you can see me

:12:57.:13:16.

with a rice mail. ``a wry smile. We have had it before and it does not

:13:17.:13:22.

work at all. What about people who are asking that if you live at an

:13:23.:13:29.

alia 23 away from the University, what do you expect? ``live in an

:13:30.:13:56.

area. I am sorry but we will not be forced out. We're having this seven

:13:57.:14:06.

nights a week. The government estimates the university is worth

:14:07.:14:10.

more than ?200 million to the local economy. You cannot demonise the

:14:11.:14:15.

students of drive them away when you have that sort of figure. There are

:14:16.:14:20.

some very nice young people doubt that when they go out like

:14:21.:14:23.

wildebeest and heads of 30 at midnight they are already tanked

:14:24.:14:26.

up. ``herds of 30. Still ahead tonight: The roar of a

:14:27.:14:47.

Lincolnshire jet engine that's being used in the BBC Proms.

:14:48.:14:56.

And the 25`foot tall plant that's broken through the roof of its

:14:57.:15:01.

owners' greenhouse. Jackie Osgodby took this from the

:15:02.:15:15.

billion today. It will feel cool. `` a brilliant day. The showers will

:16:09.:16:18.

continue to use away over the next couple of hours and there will be

:16:19.:16:22.

clear spells this evening. Cloud is spilling down from the north into

:16:23.:16:27.

parts of east Yorkshire. In Lincolnshire temperatures will

:16:28.:16:34.

remain the lowest. The sun will rise just before six o'clock in the

:16:35.:16:40.

morning. High water will be just for 4am. Tomorrow morning Lincolnshire

:16:41.:16:47.

will not be too bad and there will be more cloud across the North was

:16:48.:16:50.

showery bursts of rain. The cloud and showery bursts of rain will ease

:16:51.:17:00.

eventually but it will feel cool with that breeze and it will be

:17:01.:17:07.

disappointing at 15 degrees or 16 degrees. On Friday, sunshine and a

:17:08.:17:20.

few showers. It will be very cold indeed but largely dry and bright

:17:21.:17:24.

for Saturday and Sunday. Monday will be rainy and windy.

:17:25.:17:36.

People living in Winterton say they'll fight plans to sell off the

:17:37.:17:39.

North Lincolnshire town's football ground. Winterton Rangers claims its

:17:40.:17:44.

club is running at a loss, and wants to sell what's considered to be

:17:45.:17:47.

community land to a housing developer. But the club's directors

:17:48.:17:51.

insist the money would be used to relocate it to a new ground. Crispin

:17:52.:17:58.

Rolfe has more. Outside the gates of Winterton Rangers. Campaigners

:17:59.:18:00.

calling for the club to stay put and not to sell for housing what many

:18:01.:18:06.

consider to be community land. The club's put its prime site up for

:18:07.:18:18.

sale for ?2.5 million, to the dismay of neighbours.

:18:19.:18:25.

This is a community club and has been here for over 70 years. The

:18:26.:18:34.

thought of having houses here is very upsetting.

:18:35.:18:37.

Junior teams play here alongside the club's first team, but Winterton

:18:38.:18:42.

Rangers insists sports facilities won't be lost, just relocated.

:18:43.:18:50.

We should be able to relocate and provide a more bespoke facility

:18:51.:18:59.

without maintenance or expenditure to achieve exactly the same aims.

:19:00.:19:03.

Winterton's not the only sports facility that's been facing

:19:04.:19:07.

financial pressures. Hull's Young People's Institute has been forced

:19:08.:19:09.

to sell land too. The difference is that the sale here is only on the

:19:10.:19:13.

condition that it remains in place for sport.

:19:14.:19:18.

And in Winterton, that's the fear ` uncertainty of how this site will be

:19:19.:19:22.

used. So now there are calls for local groups to bid to take it over.

:19:23.:19:28.

Any community group that comes up with a business plan can put that

:19:29.:19:34.

for what in the next six months and hopefully we will get more people to

:19:35.:19:37.

come forward to try to get this going.

:19:38.:19:40.

may help financially, but right now the club seems set on exploring its

:19:41.:19:45.

options. Which could mean the loss of community facilities and land in

:19:46.:19:48.

A specially commissioned piece of music will include the sound

:19:49.:19:58.

of a 1960's jet they restored at Metheringham Airfield.

:19:59.:20:03.

The ears of these aviation enthusiasts, and now to lovers of

:20:04.:20:05.

classical music as well. The sound of the engine has been chosen to be

:20:06.:20:09.

part of a special piece of music, performed for the first time at the

:20:10.:20:12.

BBC Proms this evening. Paul Flynn and his team at the airfield in

:20:13.:20:15.

Lincolnshire contributed the sound of the aircraft they have spent the

:20:16.:20:25.

last decade restoring. We think we've spent upwards of 20,000

:20:26.:20:45.

man`hours on the aeroplane and we've certainly spent an amount of money

:20:46.:21:04.

The music, commissioned by BBC Radio Four,

:21:05.:21:05.

includes 18 everyday sounds, all contributed by listeners. They

:21:06.:21:08.

include the sound of thunder... And even the sound of Crewe railway

:21:09.:21:12.

station. The aircraft was originally used to train pilots before

:21:13.:21:23.

performing in air displays, but when it was found in a scrapyard, this

:21:24.:21:30.

is what it looked like. It was just an empty shell, the wings have been

:21:31.:21:33.

broken off. All the interior was missing, there was no engine. Will

:21:34.:21:42.

it ever fly again? No, we've tried long and hard to locate the original

:21:43.:21:51.

paperwork for the aeroplane, it is never come to light. Without that

:21:52.:21:57.

provenance, it will stay firmly rooted to the ground. The team have

:21:58.:22:00.

been invited to the first public performance of the competition,

:22:01.:22:02.

taking place at the Royal Academy of Music. It may never take to the

:22:03.:22:06.

skies of Britain again, but at least it will

:22:07.:22:08.

and give us your telephone number. Hull City's big summer signing

Robert Snodgrass faces six months on the sidelines after being diagnosed

:22:35.:22:37.

with a dislocated knee cap. Snodgrass was injured during the

:22:38.:22:41.

victory over Queens Park Rangers at the weekend. Manager Steve Bruce

:22:42.:22:43.

confirmed the news before boarding the plane for the Tigers next

:22:44.:22:48.

European game in Belgium. We've lost Robert Snodgrass now, and

:22:49.:22:55.

with the diagnosis we're thinking we're going to lose him for

:22:56.:22:58.

six months, which is a big blow to us all, because we spent a terrible

:22:59.:23:01.

amount of money to add to the midfield area, and obviously we've

:23:02.:23:08.

lost him. He's out for the best part of the

:23:09.:23:23.

season. It's a tragedy for him and The Irons were beaten 2`0 by

Fleetwood Town ` one of the two sides promoted with

them at the end of last season. Manager Russ Wilcox is looking for

:23:41.:23:44.

an improvement all`round. Obviously, we don't want to lose the

first six, but it is a long way to go. We have 43

who have grown cacti for decades say a 25`foot plant has become

:24:11.:24:16.

part of their family. The succulent, commonly mistaken for a cactus, was

:24:17.:24:19.

bought by the couple in France 50 years ago. It grew so quickly, it

:24:20.:24:22.

even smashed their greenhouse roof. This plant has taken growing towards

:24:23.:24:48.

the sun quite literally. The plant used to be this big. A lot of them

:24:49.:24:56.

do not grow anywhere near as big so we just waited, as you doing these

:24:57.:25:05.

things. This one grew too big. This plant has been growing for over 50

:25:06.:25:12.

years. They have never raised anything the spec. Having kept it

:25:13.:25:20.

for 50 or 60 years, it has been part and parcel of the family and it is

:25:21.:25:25.

one of those things that is always been sitting at the end of the

:25:26.:25:40.

greenhouse. We need a chainsaw to try and keep the flower stem intact

:25:41.:25:47.

but when we put it is probably going to be up on the part of the roof as

:25:48.:25:54.

a talking point. It is not a completely sad end to the story. If

you look under here, for offsets are many plans can be ``or mini plants
