Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North. The headlines tonight:
Arrests are made as trouble breaks out following Hull City's game in
Belgium. Claims the police were heavy`handed.
A police officer just let his dog attack me. It took me across the
road. A bad night on the pitch too ` this
goal means the Tigers European A School apologises for withholding
exam results because their parents owed money for iPad is. More
convicted criminals are to be tagged by Humberside Police. Thousands
arrive for the biggest motor bike event of the year. They are making
the final preparations for this year's Championships. And I'll have
the full forecast. Hull City's European clash
in Belgium has been overshadowed by arrests,
spilled blood and smashed windows. Three City fans were arrested during
clashes before and after the game. The club says that the reports
of violence are 'concerning'. Hull fans are angry that police
force them to walk past a known meeting point.
Our reporter Phillip Norton is in Belgium,
The sound of breaking glass and frantic calls to move on. As Hull
City fans pelted with bottles after last night's European tie. This
footage was said by one fine and claims the police were heavy`handed.
A number of supporters were injured. I got these two barns and then a
police officer let his dog off the lead and it attacked me. It actually
took me across the road. We got showered in class when it smashed.
That's when we realised we need to hold back a bit. Unfortunately there
were a lot of women and children involved as well, which was a
difficult situation, really. The only route in and out is this
street. The Hull City fans were being funnelled up the street and it
is here where there was violence. Fans inside this pub started
throwing bottles and chairs as they passed outside. Today, blood and
shattered glass of the tell`tale signs of what happened. Through an
interpreter, she told me it escalated after a team Mac fund
smashed a window `` Hull City Fanon. `` fan. There was no problem before
the game started. It was the police who started the provocation. The
deputy may or confirmed to the meeting point for those banned from
the stadium. They could also be present. If the club was opened or
closed, I don't think it would have made a difference. I think lessons
will be learned. There will be an evaluation with the police, city and
football club. Police say several fans were arrested and they will be
reviewing evidence to punish those responsible for the trouble.
Hull City did not want to comment but said it was concerned about the
violent clashes. We'll have all the action from
the game later in the programme. Also coming up, we rubbish is being
sent to power plants instead of dumps.

A school says it 'deeply regrets' withholding some pupils' GCSE
results, because they hadn't returned or fully paid for iPads.
The Thomas Ferens Academy in North Hull is one of a number
of schools that provides electronic equipment to pupils,
Our correspondent Anne`Marie Tasker is outside the school this evening.
What happened when these pupils turned up to get their results?
Earlier this morning, I spoke to a pupil who said that she was one of
20 pupils who turned up here at Thomas Ferens Academy yesterday
morning and told she couldn't have her GCSE results unless she paid for
her iPad. The school hands out iPads for academic reasons. Parents pay
?12 per month and at the end of school, the pupil has 2p the or hand
it back. The governing board says that they have two reveal results.
The principal would not speak to us. The chair of governors said, we
deeply regret the apparent breakdown. Clearly, students should
have been informed of their results. I've been ensured that this has no
current. But it does raise the question, should the pupils have
been punished for the inability of their parents?
I spoke to a former teacher who taught in some of Hull's toughest
schools. I asked for a reaction to the school was right. I doubt the
legality of that. I think it is part of the contract that they have to be
given their results. The money ought to be coming back but to be telling
the pupils on the day of their results that they aren't going to
get them because money hasn't been paid is too late. I think it is very
hard on them on the day. I would probably go as far as saying it is
wrong. What about parents, because if there is money to be paid,
parents have to take more responsibility, do they not? I do
think so, yes, and I think children should have a role in that too. It
should have been said at the end of exams, that you won't get your
results if you are behind with your money. What about schools offering
iPads. What is your view on that? I can see it as necessary. There are a
lot of computers in schools that children have access to most of the
time. So there shouldn't be a deal at all for iPads? I would say not. I
see no need for it. The children won't iPads, `` want. I think they
should get a job and pay for it. There are things schools are to do
with their money like shortages of textbooks. The youngsters would much
rather have an iPad. That's not the point, the point is about education.
It would be far more used to have a good textbook than iPad. Most of
them have smartphones and can access most of the stuff on there anyway.
Do you think youngsters use the iPads for the right reasons?
Obviously sometimes, but let's face it, if you have an iPad, you're
going to do other things on it than school research. Well you are!
Maybe you are a parent or pupil in this particular story.
Was the school right to withhold children's exam results if they

More criminals should be forced to wear electronic tags
That's according to Humberside's Police and
He is increasing spending on new satellite technology.
At present the scheme is voluntary, but some would
like to see more criminals tagged to prevent them re`offending.
Here's our political editor Tim Iredale.
Figures reveal that half of prisoners released from jail going
commit further offences. I'm a commercial burglar. I used to do
where houses and shops. Darren, as he wants to be called, turned to
crime to fund has drug habit. He was fitted with an elephant tag to
monitor his whereabouts. I was limited to what I could do after
some o'clock PM. It stopped me committing crime. `` seven o'clock
PM. Officers can now use site map style GPS technology to check the
location of an individual at any given time. I think wearing a tag is
not unreasonable for them to expect. When they commit their offence, I
believe they are giving up a number of their civil liberties. I think
the ability for a community to supervise them when they are
released on licence is not unreasonable. The scheme in the
Humberside area is currently on a voluntary basis, but it has been
effective, we are told. It has been effective, we are told. A convicted
sex offender was found to have breached has conditions by visiting
a local park. He was arrested and sent back to prison to serve the
rest of his sentence. These were the views of some parents. Any sort of
deterrent to keep them away from parks, I'm all for it. I think they
should be forced to wear them and I think if they go near a park, they
should get analytic shock. `` Electric. Some argue it should not
be used as an alternative to prison for those who commit serious
crimes. Thousands arrive in Lincolnshire for
one of the biggest bike races of the year.
Tomorrow, it is going to be an all right start but we are going to see
showers developing. Sunday looked to be the best day of the bank
holiday. That looks mostly dry and bright. It could turn cloudy, wet
and breezy through Monday. Today, we have had a fair few shower workloads
this `` shower workloads but it will become mostly dry tonight. In towns
and cities, it will drop down to eight or nine Celsius. And more
rural spots and will be colder than that. `` in. It's going to be chilly
start tomorrow but there will be good spells of sunshine. We will see
more anyway of cloud bubbling up and then showers coming through later on
as we head through tomorrow afternoon. Some of these could be
sharp and could give us the odd rumble of thunder. There will be
some spells of sunshine but it probably won't feel that warm, with
temperatures hovering between 15 and 16 Celsius. It is quite a cool air.
Sunday doesn't look bad. It will be mostly dry and bright but chilly
overnight into Sunday. A cold start, dry and break through the day, then
Clyde will increase. `` bright. Rubbish from homes in Hull and
East Yorkshire, which can't be recycled, is to be
sent to a power plants to be turned Until now,
waste has been going into landfill sites, and waste from some parts
of the country is even being burned Here's our environment
correspondent Paul Murphy. Here's the problem. As a nation, he
sent nearly 500 million tonnes of rubbish to landfill site every year,
when it is buried in the ground. Blue wheelie bin are becoming more
frequent as awareness improves. We are getting better and better at
recycling but there will always be residual waste and local authorities
face the challenge of disposing of this cost effectively without
harming the environment. The Government effectively finds
councils every time they send waste to landfills. Local authorities have
been looking for alternatives. It cost the council ?82 60 for every
tonne that goes into a landfill. The alternative arrangement with these
contracts save a significant adult money for the council but at the
same time also have real environmental benefits. From next
April, Hull and East Yorkshire councils will send the rubbish to
waste power stations. But the UK has been slow to adopt this process
compared to other European countries. Here on hold docs, there
is a thriving export business where they send rubbish to Scandinavian
incinerators `` Hull docks. It helps our exports and is useful for ships
that would otherwise be empty. And it is good for the environment
because it is not going into landfills here. Local councils say
the money saved can be ploughed back into other services.
I spoke to Martin Deane from the Hull and East Riding Green Party.
I asked him what's not to like about saving council's money and reducing
It sounds like a good plan. I'm sure a lot of people will welcome it. But
from the Green party point of view, it's always about the juice, reuse,
recycle. But sending it abroad saves the council money and produces
energy. The nicest thing about it is that this new technology seems to be
a lot less toxic than previous ones. This is the reason why the Green
party fight incinerators across the country because when you export it,
our point of view would have to be, how do we make the most of whatever
we call waste instead of getting rid of it. But you would much rather it
was sent abroad and said and landfills? Do you agree? Landfill is
costly for councils and so, if they have a cheaper alternative, they
would use it. So you would welcome these plants in this country, to Ban
all of our waste? `` burn. Where do we have the steps that say, how can
we reuse this to the best of our ability? If there's 500 million
tonnes going into a landfill, it means 500 million tonnes of rubbish.
It has to go somewhere. There is a policy called zero waste which
hasn't hit this country yet. It recycles almost everything. Which is
better, burning waste or putting it in a landfill? It's a lose, lose,
not a win, win. If we recycle, we can win. Which do you think is
better? We'll have some thoughts on Monday night. We read every single
message. Thanks to everyone who's been
in touch about the community in Lincolnshire calling
on the Government to intervene over plans for two large power stations
in their village. People
in Sutton Bridge claim their local council isn't being helpful enough
and so have held a referendum to Michael from Hull tweeted to say, 'a
17.7% turnout in Sutton Bridge poll? Hardly a mandate for Government
action. Appears most people are not
worried by the plans'. A collection of silverware from Ten
Downing Street has gone on display Crafted by some
of the finest silversmiths in the country, it was originally
used for full state banquets. It'll be on display at Belton House
for a month. If you look at the quality of the
work, you can see that it is superb. The design in some instances look
simple, but when you look closely, you realise that there is a nuance
that turns it into something magnet can `` magnificent.

We know that we're capable of it. I've seen enough in the last 15 20
minutes. We were exceptionally comfortable. It will be a different
game in a week's time. In front of our supporters, we'll be a lot
different. The Tigers boss had made nine

The debate continues about how to tackle Islamic state militants in

Syrian regime. Arrests are made
after trouble breaks out following A mostly dry and bright start with
sunny spells, showers later on. We had that conversation about GCSE
results and high pads. John says the parents should pay up. This one
says, I'm a 15`year`old girl. It is not a necessity, the school has to
think more about exam regulation. It is diabolical. Julie says, I think
it is wrong because the kids are excited about getting results only
to be singled out. And Joe says, what a ridiculous idea, giving out I
pads. Kids can use school computers and of course they're going to them
for other things rather than schoolwork.
