Free school meals for all children in the first three years of primary

of the new school year next week. Tonight there are fresh claims that


the policy has been rushed through. A mother from Lincolnshire says she

can buy the child something she can eat.' Catherine: 'Personally if it

Police are appealing for witnesses after two people died in a crash


near RAF Scampton. The collision involving two vehicles happened just


after 11 o'clock yesterday morning on the A15. A 45`year`old


man from Stainfield and a 59`year`old man from Scunthorpe both


died at the scene. A female passenger is in hospital with


A ward has been closed at Scunthorpe General Hospital after patients came


down with a stomach bug. Tests are being carried out to see if it's

staff are being advised to stay home if they become sick.


People in Grimsby affected by flooding say there's too much


talk and not enough action by the council to prevent future damage.


The concerns follow the announcement that a working


group will be set up by North East Lincolnshire Council to review what


Some homeowners were flooded twice in a month,


This was the scene in a seat in Grimsby earlier this month. Some


people had just replaced carpets from similar flooding three weeks


earlier. Rains came again and the problems are returned. The trains in


the street have won in 40 year chance of this happening and this


has happened within three weeks. We just want somebody to investigate


what has actually happened and we should not be terrified. People who


live here say that nothing has been done. Last week there was a special


school council meeting of the Cabinet backed the Conservative


group leader says that people need to see action. People want for the


council to be out there and looking at the problem area is that are


happening again and again. We needed to deal with these drainage


problems. We have had people come down the street more than once but


still nothing is being done. We are still in the situation where water


could come back into the house and we want less words and more action.


Residents say that they needed to know that repairs to their homes


will last. tonight. Phil, what have North East


Lincolnshire Council had to say? Unfortunately nobody was available


for comment but a statement from them says that a working group will


be set up following council approval to look at how flooding is dealt


with in the area. We have also spoken to Anglian Water who have


said that the sheer volume of water inundated the system and the pumps


were dealing with five times the usual amount of water. You can


understand why residents who have tried to fix their homes here are


wondering why this has happened and whether these repairs will be all in


vain. Here are the details if you want to contact us if you have been


affected by this. Still ahead tonight: The goals which


just keep coming for Grimsby Town and why state`of`the=art technology


could help one hand`cyclist get to Rio.

sunshine. All parts will be dry and a very promising day although some


rain is expected later on Wednesday night because of this weather


system. Thursday morning starts damp and Thursday afternoon looks fine


with some sunshine so it looks quite changeable. It was a cloudy start


but that cloud pulled away from the north`east and we have seen those


pictures in Grimsby of a beautiful end to the day. Fine everywhere with


plenty of sunshine. Overnight a bit of loud rolling in from the North


Sea might produce the odd light shower but most of us will stay dry.


Quite windy at first, especially along the literature coursed and the


breeze will see temperatures in towns and cities of around 10


Celsius or 11 Celsius. And I stay to come on Wednesday with all parts


being dry and bright with just the smallest chance of an isolated


shower. Variable cloud with some decent sunny spells and just a light

national parks is warning it may have to close rights of way and shut


down conservation projects because of government cuts. The North York


Moors National Park has seen its budget cut by 40% and next


month more savings and redundancies will be announced. It says it's now


being forced to rely on teams of volunteers to keep vital services


going. Phill Connell's been investigating the financial plight


of this important national asset. This footpath is just one example.


If we were not doing this now you would not be able to see this path


by the springtime. In the last three years the budget of the National


Park has been cut by 40% of annual spending reduced to just over ?4


million. What rule for volunteers no play here? How reliant will the Park


become on the hard work and goodwill? The chief executive says


that volunteers will not replace qualified staff and it says in over


50 years of the Park being in existence he has not known at times


like these. It really is a huge change and there are days when you


feel completely despondent so we will rely more on volunteers because


the alternative is that things will not happen. A planning application


for potash mine near Whitby has also squeezed finances further. This has


raised questions as to how we safeguard this beautiful national


asset. A restaurant in Lincolnshire has


been badly damaged after an articulated lorry


left the road and crashed into it. The accident happened at Whaplode


last night. No customers were hurt and the


driver of the lorry escaped with minor injuries.


An investigation into the circumstances


of the crash is under way. A Hull food company has agreed a


deal with an Indian manufacturer worth ?100,000 a year. Chaucer Foods


will provide croutons for the Indian market in an agreement which has


seen them increase their trade with the country by 50%. The details were


announced by the Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg who is on a


visit to India. A Lincolnshire village is hoping to


secure enough investment for them to build a solar farm.


200 panels will start going up on this barn roof in Belchford


from next month. That's enough to provide electricity


for around 16 households. If successful it will be the first


time a solar farm has been run by a cooperative in the county.


There are lots of benefits. Point number two, it is clean


energy. Point number three, I suppose, it's


clean technology, it's known technology, it's been


around for years. The panels will start to be put up


in September. More than half the ?56,000 quiet has been raised in


just one month. ``required. We have not found anyone disappointed yet.


With British weather being as it is, is that a real benefits in having


solar panels? This is a very effective technology and people are


often surprised to find out that solar energy works less well when it


is heart. There is a surprisingly difference between the performance


of solar panels in the United Kingdom and in Mediterranean areas


in summer. It is believed this will benefit people even if they do not


have a share in the solar farm. Grimsby Town supporters will have

Rio Paralympics in 2016. An athlete from Lincoln is using


cutting edge Liz McTernan is already one of the


world's top hand cyclists. She is now working with sports


scientists from the University of Lincoln to improve her technique


and go even faster. In sport you have to get the edge on


your opponent. Milliseconds, millimetres make all


the difference. Every element of performance needs


to be scrutinised. To have biomechanic feedback on the


correct peddling, how I am seated in the bike, how aerodynamic I am,


it all makes a massive difference. And, as British Cycling do, they


have marginal gains and that's what I'm looking for now.


This is Liz's second session with the human performance department


at the University of Lincoln. It's already helped a number of top


athletes reach perfection. Two main objectives we have with


this type of biomechanical analysis, the most important one, the one


which matters to the athlete is improving his or her performance


but also we have two remain conscious about the risk of injury.


To get optimum technique in terms of performance is key, but also reduces


the risk of injury. Liz started in triathlons and


despite switching her focus to cycling just a year ago, she has


recently finished in the top three for both races and


time trials across Europe. I am now ranked sixth in the world


in my category for hand cycling and I'm ranked second in


Europe at the moment but I have one more competition to


go and I'm hoping to bump my ranking up and be first in Europe.


It depends who turns up for the turned to

accident left her unable to walk. to Rio.

and regional headlines. A report's published into the sexual


abuse of almost 1,500 children in Rotherham over


16 years. The father from Hull says he's


growing increasingly frustrated after being trapped in Iraq for


eight months. Tomorrow's weather: Dry and bright


with partly cloudy skies and sunny spells. A light or moderate south


east wind, and a top temperature of Talking about the 40`year`old girl


who cannot get school meals because of her allergies, feedback from


viewers says that she should not miss out just because she has


allergies. Paul says that he is sure this child will get dietary food on


the National Health Service. Why does mum not just pack some up? Some


people are never satisfied. One woman says she worked for school


meals for 27 years and provided special diets. See you tomorrow


night at the same time. Have somebody play bagpipe at the


airport to welcome you? Possible. Whichever car you like,


with Wi-Fi inside? Possible. Can I get you a pink elephant?

is not a guest, but he's God.
