six. Good evening and welcome to BBC Look
North. The headlines tonight. Health experts say new smoking rules
could protect local children, but there is opposition to a change in
the law. I believe banning smoking at home is
an infringement of personal liberties.
Hull City fans say they will welcome supporters from Belgium despite
trouble at last week's match. Campaigners in Goole say there are
too many people renting rooms in the town and fight to stop another
development. The '50s movie star being remembered
in the east coast town where she was born.
I've detailed forecast follows shortly. `` A detailed forecast.
Ineffective and unenforceable ` that's how one Conservative MP from
our area has described plans to ban smoking in cars carrying children. A
consultation on the idea closed today with experts saying it could
improve the health of young people in Hull ` a city with one of the
highest smoking rates in the country. In a moment I'll be
speaking to Andrew Percy ` the MP for Brigg and Goole. But first our
Health Correspondent Vicky Johnson has this report.
well known but ARE children at particular risk when it comes to
breathing in cigarette fumes, especially in a car?
Deborah Parkinson is a senior stop`smoking specialist, working in
Hull. Their lungs are smaller, their
breathing rate is a lot more rapid and their immune system is much
more, needs much more development and that means they are a lot more
susceptible to things like respiratory disorders and also
things like ear infections, as well. Previous public health campaigns
have highlighted the hidden dangers. Over 80% of cigarette smoke is
invisible. No matter how careful you are, they
still breathe in the harmful poisons.
The toxins in smoke, things like arsenic, formaldehyde, carbon
monoxide, those become breathed in. In some areas of Hull, almost 50% of
people smoke but even here most of the ones we
spoke to say children in cars should not have to breathe in toxic fumes.
If it is made illegal then drivers who smoke, or allow others to smoke
when children are in their car, could face hefty fines.
Smokers' groups insist such a ban is Andrew Percy is the Conservative MP
for Brigg and Goole, he voted against the ban when it was debated
by MPs earlier this year. Why did you vote against this man?
``this ban. I asked my constituents and a narrow majority said that I
should oppose this band. ``this ban. This is because it is unenforceable.
Do you agree that smokers should have the right to choose and should
not be told what to do by the government, even though they are
subjecting their children to smoke? I think it was more about weather
this is enforceable or not. People see people driving at excessive
speeds and on mobile phones. Those lows are not being enforced. I
remember when we all drove around without seat belts on and when it
became law suddenly everybody had seat belts on. That was difficult to
enforce but it made us change our way of life. It is easier to enforce
seat belt. Spotting someone smoking can be very difficult and to spot
that they have children in the car. They can often be very small
children so to is a difficult thing to enforce. It should not take the
government to tell people they should not be smoking in cars. Let's
enforce what we have already. Some people do drive around with children
in cars. These levels are comparable with her smoke`filled pub. It is a
terrible thing and adapter thing to do but I would wonder if people who
are doing it now, this irresponsible behaviour, will do it because a
government says it has to be enforced.
Lots of you have been debating this story on our Facebook page, Don't
forget to like us on Facebook and you can have your say, too. Jackie
says, "They banned mobile phones in cars but certain people think it
doesn't apply to them! What makes the government think that type of
person will take any notice of this ban!?" Robert says, "People won't
adhere to it. Peter, "Like mobile phones in cars it won't be policed."
Janie says, "If you smoke in the car whilst your children are with you,
then you deserve to be fined. There is NO excuse."
Do you agree that smoking in cars with children in them should be
banned? Or is Andrew Percy right, is it impossible to police? Do you
think it should be a priority for officers? Or is it a law too far?

A murder investigation is under way after the death of a 39`year`old man
in Bridlington. He was found unconscious by police in Sewerby

Roads in part of Lincoln, which were upgraded last year, are being
repaired after a fault was found. The County Council says it's found
some "minor issues" on sections of Newark Road. Work will start at the
beginning of September. It is always frustrating when things
don't go right first time. Sometimes it happens, unfortunately.
We need to get the material right for
the longer term so it will last as long as possible and value for money

European fans should be given a warm welcome to East Yorkshire despite
trouble after last week's game. The first leg against Lokeren last week
was marred by violence from banned Belgian hooligans following the
final whistle. Police here say they've reassessed their approach to
tomorrow's match but it will still be low`key. The Hull City manager,
Steve Bruce, says he wants fans from both sides to enjoy the game.
Phillip Norton reports. Hull City and Sporting Lokeren fans
enjoying Belgian hospitality together last week.
These pictures sum up the overall warm, friendly
atmosphere that surrounded the Tigers' 1`0 defeat in the first leg.
The Lokeren people have been fantastic.
They've welcomed us with open arms. We had a fantastic time. But the
authorities in Belgium now admit that a police escort forced
1200 Hull City fans past a pub full of known Lokeren troublemakers.
Bottles and chairs were thrown at Hull supporters,
a number were injured. The real welcome but not by an army
of riot police. We want to get the message out that we welcome a
friendly fans from Europe to enjoy the football match. Some supporters
feel similar facilities would help tomorrow. We want them to share and
enjoy our city when they come here and we had those privileges when we
went there. They made us feel very welcome and it was a very friendly
atmosphere and that is no doubt that they should be entitled to exactly
the same reception here and we hope that the Belgians feel very happy
and welcome here. a number were injured.
It soured what had been a great occasion but fans here want the city
to welcome their opponents and fans. A call backed by manager Steve
Bruce. The one thing you don't want to be
doing is having those ugly scenes we all saw on the TV.

From what I'm hearing, we did nothing wrong,
the Hull supporters, and they kept their calm very, very well.
Let's hope there's no nonsense and any repeat of anything like that.
Let's enjoy the match and the game and enjoy
the occasion without any trouble. Humberside Police says it supports a
celebratory atmosphere, but will deal with any offences committed by
either set of fans proportionately and without discrimination.

Hundreds of fans are getting on to ferries at European airports. They
will arrive first thing in the morning. The chances of any trouble

that instigated this trouble but Humberside Police say they are ready
for anything. They do not want to be seen to be over policing the event
that say they have enough resources on hand should anything happen to
guarantee everyone's safety. I met some of the Belgian fans in town
today. Tomorrow night we will be at the stadium.
The town of Goole is being turned into a ghetto by landlords who
convert rooms in family homes into bed`sits. That's the claim from a
leading councillor who says there needs to be a halt to similar
developments in the future. Hundreds of people in Goole live in single
rooms, but neighbours say they bring with them extra noise, rubbish and
parking problems. Jill Archbold reports. In this residential street
in Goole a number of homes are rented by the room. There are more
than 100 in the town ` known as Houses in Multiple Occupation. On
this street plans for one more ` and residents who describe these as
family homes ` are lining up to object.

The work in Gainsborough is just one of many restoration projects being
carried out across East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire to mark
the centenary of World War I. Memorials in North Ferriby and
Bempton in East Yorkshire and Glentham and Wootton in Lincolnshire

?10,000 to carry out the Gainsborough restoration.
Gainsborough does have its own war memorial, though there
are no names inscribed on it. The only places men are commemorated

An arts group in Holbeach St Marks is performing a play on the back of
a lorry. It's hoped by taking the theatre into parks and town centres
of Lincolnshire it will get children and some adults watching plays and
enjoying theatre for the first time. Here's our arts correspondent,
