September will settle down with Sony spells and it will get warmer --

:00:00.:00:00.

sunny spells. A story with a happy ending.

:00:00.:00:08.

Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:09.:00:10.

Yorkshire ambulance staff walk out on strike again, as the row

:00:11.:00:17.

save frustration what is happening. We feel we are not listening to

:00:18.:00:29.

others. Calls for landlords to stop

rubbish from building up The place is becoming unsightly and

people have seen vermin, rats and mice.

:00:49.:00:51.

It is wanted as a tourist attraction in Hull.

:00:52.:00:53.

Now, a bidding war erupts over who gets HMS Illustrious.

:00:54.:00:55.

And putting the spa back in Woodhall Spa ` could this

:00:56.:00:58.

And I will be back with the full weather forecast later in the

:00:59.:01:09.

programme. There could be some good use.

:01:10.:01:16.

They are a small band of workers who have been in dispute

:01:17.:01:19.

with their bosses for almost two years and, this afternoon, some

:01:20.:01:22.

staff at the Yorkshire Ambulance Service walked out on strike again.

:01:23.:01:24.

At the heart of it is a row about working hours.

:01:25.:01:27.

The Yorkshire Ambulance Service now refuses to recognise

:01:28.:01:30.

their union and, with both sides refusing to budge,

:01:31.:01:35.

amid claims patients are being put at risk, can a solution be found?

:01:36.:01:44.

They provide a vital service, and one that most of us take

:01:45.:01:47.

But one ambulance worker's union claims staff in Yorkshire

:01:48.:01:52.

The members are frustrated and fatigued. They are at breaking point

:01:53.:02:04.

move. The dispute centres on giving

:02:05.:02:06.

more responsibility to emergency care assistants who Unite claim

:02:07.:02:08.

don't get enough training before Other claims include longer shifts

:02:09.:02:10.

And changes to shifts which Unite say could lead to staff working 10

:02:11.:02:14.

hours without a meal break It is a row that has now lasted 22 months

:02:15.:02:19.

and sparked several strikes. With both sides

:02:20.:02:23.

refusing to back down. Other unions have been able to talk

:02:24.:02:45.

and council strikes. Why have you not been able to do that. They are

:02:46.:02:55.

refusing to talk to us. We have left to with no avenue apart from this.

:02:56.:03:08.

It is thought about 120 ambulance staff across Yorkshire have walked

:03:09.:03:16.

out, out of 4500. The hospital says while they are worried about the

:03:17.:03:21.

impact on patient safety, they do have other plans in place.

:03:22.:03:26.

But this ambulance worker who wants to remian anonomous for fear of

:03:27.:03:29.

losing his job, says striking is the only way to voice concern about the

:03:30.:03:32.

It could be worrying that F a paramedic was called, they could get

:03:33.:03:44.

someone who barely had a first aid certificate.

:03:45.:03:51.

But at Hull Royal infirmary today some felt strike action was

:03:52.:03:54.

a step too far The mediator Acas has now stepped

:03:55.:04:03.

The mediator has now stepped in to try abrupt break the deadlock, but

:04:04.:04:10.

after two years of dispute, a swift end to the road seems increasingly

:04:11.:04:12.

unlikely. Management at the

:04:13.:04:19.

Yorkshire Ambulance Service dispute the union's figures about

:04:20.:04:21.

the number of people on strike. I asked Ian Brandwood

:04:22.:04:23.

from the service why they would not We were talking to them until about

:04:24.:04:42.

two years ago, but they were deviating eyes after they failed to

:04:43.:04:48.

conduct themselves properly last time. The unions see the door is

:04:49.:04:55.

opened and they want to talk. Why is your one closed? Because we have

:04:56.:05:00.

nothing to talk to them about any more. The reality as they represent

:05:01.:05:08.

a very small number of staff in the organisation. We recognise Unison,

:05:09.:05:12.

who represent the majority of our staff. You mention the numbers

:05:13.:05:22.

there, I believe about 100 out of 4000 staff were out on today. That

:05:23.:05:31.

figure is wrong. They would probably be about 40 people on strike, ten of

:05:32.:05:40.

which are on strike in the region here. Is it just a small disruptive

:05:41.:05:48.

minority? No, we value our staff members, but clearly those who are

:05:49.:05:54.

in Unite view we need to take strike action. It was purely around the

:05:55.:05:59.

derecognition of the Unite union. We do not think that is an issue. This

:06:00.:06:10.

number of people on strike, what is your message to them? Our message to

:06:11.:06:15.

them is simple. If they have grievances, talk to us and we will

:06:16.:06:18.

try and address them. Are the ambulance staff right

:06:19.:06:33.

to keep going on strike. Or do you back the managers who are

:06:34.:06:36.

refusing to talk to their union? Contact us in the

:06:37.:06:39.

following manner and let us know. The East Riding of Yorkshire Council

:06:40.:07:09.

today confirmed it is talking to Rotherham Council after it emerged

:07:10.:07:12.

one of its senior child protection officers previously worked there, at

:07:13.:07:15.

a time when hundreds of girls were Pam Allen who is now the Head

:07:16.:07:18.

of Children and Young People Support and Safeguarding Services at

:07:19.:07:22.

East Riding, was in a similar job What is the council saying about

:07:23.:07:25.

Pam Allen? I have we know that this report into

:07:26.:07:55.

Child exploitation came at a time when she was working there. In her

:07:56.:08:02.

previous role, East Riding Council refused to stay anything. We have

:08:03.:08:07.

issued two statements today. In a letter sent to the

:08:08.:08:22.

Chief Executive, he asks whether the council plans to

:08:23.:08:24.

review Ms Allen's suitability "If it is the case that she bears a

:08:25.:08:27.

serious level of responsibility for the situation that was allowed

:08:28.:08:31.

to develop in Rotherham, it is highly doubtful whether Ms Allen

:08:32.:08:34.

should be entrusted with a similar safeguarding role in the

:08:35.:08:36.

East Riding, Well, the council has issued

:08:37.:08:38.

two statements today. He asked whether the council is

:08:39.:08:56.

going to renew a look at her suitability. They said,

:08:57.:09:12.

the council said the statement was a response to his questions, but they

:09:13.:09:18.

do not appear to have answered everything that they had asked. We

:09:19.:09:25.

will keep you up`to`date with any developments on the story.

:09:26.:09:31.

Lincolnshire Police say they have arrested two girls and a boy

:09:32.:09:34.

in connection with the murder of a 42`year`old man in Spalding.

:09:35.:09:37.

The man was airlifted to hospital from Coronation

:09:38.:09:39.

He died from his injuries in the early hours of this morning.

:09:40.:09:42.

Four people have been injured, three of them seriously,

:09:43.:09:44.

in a road accident on the A158 at Wragby in Lincolnshire.

:09:45.:09:47.

The road has been closed for several hours

:09:48.:09:49.

The principal of the Thomas Ferens Academy in Hull has resigned

:09:50.:09:52.

Juliet Strang stepped down after figures showed only one

:09:53.:09:55.

in five of her pupils hit the government benchmark

:09:56.:09:57.

The Canadian Lancaster bomber flown to Lincolnshire to take part

:09:58.:10:09.

It landed safely in the north east this morning

:10:10.:10:13.

Work is beginning on a new multi`million pound building

:10:14.:10:19.

The site will provide accommodation, as well as training workshops,

:10:20.:10:24.

Private landlords are being urged to take responsibility for piles

:10:25.:10:35.

of rubbish left by their tenants in parts

:10:36.:10:37.

Residents have complained about houses with so much rubbish outside

:10:38.:10:44.

One of the city MPs says landlords need to be good neighbours

:10:45.:10:48.

and take responsibility and it is urging the council to use

:10:49.:10:52.

a rundown, unsightly and he's in squalid. This is some of the words

:10:53.:11:13.

used to describe the streets, home to a high population of students.

:11:14.:11:18.

She says the problem is getting worse. They do not lose deposits are

:11:19.:11:28.

bonds, so they have nothing to lose. At Christmas time, they put all the

:11:29.:11:33.

rubbish in the front. It was horrendous. You could tell it had

:11:34.:11:41.

been there for months. There was a terrible smell. There was a gap

:11:42.:11:46.

between the two houses and a gap between the two houses between them.

:11:47.:11:53.

I could not even get into the letterbox. The council said it is

:11:54.:11:57.

working to educate residents, to take enforcement action also we are

:11:58.:12:04.

relevant. They also want to see how the powers could be strengthened. I

:12:05.:12:08.

want to see how the powers could be strengthened. I wanted to make sure

:12:09.:12:16.

tenants put rubbish out, keep premises clean and tidy and that

:12:17.:12:22.

they are an asset to the city. One local letting agent may be to punish

:12:23.:12:28.

bad landlords. That is the only way we can go forward. Something has to

:12:29.:12:37.

be done. If it is not tidied up, then you have to impose a fine. At a

:12:38.:12:43.

property owned by Christine, new students have just moved in. In our

:12:44.:12:49.

experience, it is not always practical for them to clean up after

:12:50.:12:54.

the tenants. If I have found they have left a load of rubbish, they

:12:55.:12:58.

cannot just buy get up and take it to the tip. But I am penalised. What

:12:59.:13:08.

do we do, leave it at the house? Residency it is not the first time

:13:09.:13:09.

they have complained, but they hope they have complained, but they hope

:13:10.:13:13.

the renewed focus of the problem will lead to some improvements.

:13:14.:13:26.

People have already been telling us about rubbish on West Parade

:13:27.:13:29.

in Lincoln and Beverley Road in Hull, on our Facebook page.

:13:30.:13:36.

Have you seen rubbish dumped where you live

:13:37.:13:38.

Still ahead tonight ` there is heartbreak for Hull City fans,

:13:39.:13:45.

as the Tigers' European dream comes to an early end.

:13:46.:13:50.

We take a special look at the history of this Lincolnshire

:13:51.:13:54.

landmark and ask could it be brought back to life?

:13:55.:14:09.

Please keep your photographs coming in. Thank you very much for that

one. We have had issues with Paul looking green over the past couple

:14:27.:14:44.

of nights. Maybe I should replace him permanently! I think a few

:14:45.:14:47.

people would be quite happy with that!

:14:48.:14:57.

It looks quite nice over the weekend. An improvement, with the

:14:58.:15:08.

return of summer. Over the weekend, it is looking quite decent. Sunny

:15:09.:15:14.

spells with the odd isolated shower. It should stay largely dry on

:15:15.:15:21.

Sunday. It may just be interrupted for a little foil by this weather

:15:22.:15:26.

front pushing and overnight on Sunday into Monday. There have been

:15:27.:15:32.

some showers around this afternoon. Most of the showers on the coast.

:15:33.:15:37.

Through the next couple of hours, they will tend to die up die out.

:15:38.:15:48.

Overnight temperatures 12`15 Celsius.

:15:49.:15:57.

Tomorrow, it is looking like a pretty decently. There could be the

:15:58.:16:06.

odd shower, but generally drier and brighter than today. There will be

:16:07.:16:11.

some pleasant spells of sunshine. It will not be quite as breezy, so

:16:12.:16:16.

should feel a bit more pleasant. Temperatures average for the time of

:16:17.:16:28.

year. 19`20 Celsius. A fine start to the day on Sunday. If anything, a

:16:29.:16:32.

bit more clouds developing during the course of the day. Wendy with

:16:33.:16:38.

patches of rain overnight into Monday. Settling down and warming up

on Monday. When I say read, you forecasters and

a bit touchy about that. It is all lot here!

:16:56.:17:02.

It has been suggested that Hull is among only three bidders being

:17:03.:17:05.

considered to rehome the decommissioned aircraft carrier,

:17:06.:17:07.

Hull City Council wants to bring the warship to the city as a visitor

:17:08.:17:11.

attraction for its year as City of Culture in 2017, but some residents

:17:12.:17:14.

say they are concerned about having it moored outside their homes.

:17:15.:17:28.

Our study a ceremony to officially enter a naval career yesterday, a

:17:29.:17:34.

new HMS Illustrious home is now being sought for. The council are

:17:35.:17:44.

hoping this could be yet. But some residents are worried. They were

:17:45.:17:52.

complaints about the tidal tribune Neptune which used to be here. There

:17:53.:18:01.

was a noise that the residents complained about. The jetty for the

:18:02.:18:07.

illustrious would be a lot bigger. Obviously, the ship is also a lot

:18:08.:18:14.

bigger. And its 32 years at sea, illustrious served at war and in

:18:15.:18:22.

natural disasters, helping out. It weighs 22,000 tonnes and the council

:18:23.:18:28.

is not giving an idea how much it could be bought for. It is estimated

:18:29.:18:35.

to be worth ?10 million and scope. The Ministry of Defence says that is

:18:36.:18:39.

not an option and must be in the United Kingdom. The local MP wants

:18:40.:18:47.

it to stay here. I have written to the Prime Minister and said it

:18:48.:18:50.

should not go to the scrap yard by default. If you want to keep the

:18:51.:18:54.

scrap yard by default. If you want to keep me here, you it. We have

:18:55.:19:00.

just one of these. The council will not reveal details of the bed. They

:19:01.:19:05.

have not said how will be paid for, but they are confident funding could

:19:06.:19:10.

be found. The Ministry of Defence will not see who else is in the

:19:11.:19:13.

running, although it did confirm the error of three bids to rehouse the

:19:14.:19:21.

ship. The council see if they are successful, residents will be fully

:19:22.:19:26.

consulted. It is believed they could be weeks rather than months before

:19:27.:19:30.

the future home for this famous warship could be chosen. I wonder

:19:31.:19:38.

where the other two places are. And would you welcome at?

:19:39.:19:41.

People living in parts of Lincolnshire say they should have

:19:42.:19:44.

a greater say in setting speed limits on the county's roads.

:19:45.:19:46.

At the moment, a formula is used to determine how fast cars can travel,

:19:47.:19:50.

but campaigners say the authorities do not always get a true picture

:19:51.:19:53.

Bob says, "It's not about reducing speed limits, it's more about

:19:54.:20:00.

There are not enough police to stop the speeders."

:20:01.:20:06.

Phillip says, "If I drive through any of these villages at 30mph,

:20:07.:20:09.

I am aggressively tailgated by people who don't see any reason

:20:10.:20:12.

And Patty says, "There is no point in reducing speed limits

:20:13.:20:18.

Thank you very much for all of your comments, throughout this week.

:20:19.:20:32.

Hull City's historic, but short`lived,

:20:33.:20:33.

They scored twice against Lokeren last night, but it was not enough.

:20:34.:20:37.

On the streets of Hull, fans of both sides mingled

:20:38.:20:39.

peacefully, in contrast to the violence in Belgium last week.

:20:40.:20:42.

They had filled the streets with their yellow and black. The fans

:20:43.:21:01.

from Belgium enjoyed the occasion. They are now going home after

:21:02.:21:05.

breaking the amber parts of whole city. The Tigers went into the match

:21:06.:21:15.

knowing they had to overcome a one nil defeat in Belgium. They got a

:21:16.:21:21.

dream start, with the lead after just six minutes. It all went wrong

:21:22.:21:26.

in the second half. This away goal which proved decisive. Despite them

:21:27.:21:35.

winning 2`1 on the night, and taking the lead from the penalty spot. With

:21:36.:21:41.

20 minutes remaining, the striker was sent off for this challenge. The

:21:42.:21:51.

decision incensed the supporters, but the manager was disappointed

:21:52.:21:59.

with the performance. I was disappointed. We gave the ball away

:22:00.:22:03.

far too cheaply in good areas. For five players did not get to the

:22:04.:22:10.

were terrible. I have not seen as were terrible. I have not seen as

:22:11.:22:14.

playing so badly. I am absolutely gutted. A great game ruined by an

:22:15.:22:27.

incompetent referee. We will certainly follow the games that they

:22:28.:22:33.

play this season. There was a large police presence, following a large

:22:34.:22:37.

amount of trouble caused by a minority of Belgian fans during the

:22:38.:22:43.

first leg. All ended peacefully as the dream in Europe came to an end.

:22:44.:22:51.

Steve Bruce says the Tigers' focus is on the Premier League.

:22:52.:22:53.

They are away to Aston Villa on Sunday.

Tomorrow afternoon, on the same station on FM, you can

On AM, on digital and the BBC sport website,

:23:00.:23:03.

And on Radio Lincolnshire, you can hear Lincoln's home game

:23:04.:23:09.

Phil Norton is at the KC Stadium, with news of

:23:10.:23:17.

Yes, a busy 24 hours here at the KC Stadium and this is one

:23:18.:23:30.

of those nights that it feels like the whole city looks forward to.

:23:31.:23:33.

It is only really Hull KR that have anything to play for,

:23:34.:23:36.

It is the final derby game of the season and the Robins still

:23:37.:23:41.

have a chance of making it into the Super League play`offs.

:23:42.:23:43.

Hull KR have also had a very good derby record recently.

:23:44.:23:47.

They have already beaten their West Hull rivals twice this season,

:23:48.:23:50.

including the 38`24 win at Manchester City's Etihad Stadium

:23:51.:23:54.

during the Magic Weekend back in May.

:23:55.:23:56.

No team has managed a clean sweep of victories in a Super League season,

:23:57.:24:05.

so tha is something Hull KR's Chris Chester will be aiming for here,

:24:06.:24:08.

And you can hear full commentary of the derby on BBC Radio Humberside.

:24:09.:24:17.

Beach huts along the coast could no of new orders. The council say they

:24:18.:24:46.

have already had interest from some organisations looking to take over.

:24:47.:24:51.

The benefits of the Spa water in Woodhall Spa were discovered

:24:52.:24:54.

by accident in the 1800s, but it has never become a draw

:24:55.:24:57.

for tourists, like the waters of Harrogate and Bath.

:24:58.:24:59.

It is safe to bathe in, but the original Spa Baths

:25:00.:25:01.

in the Lincolnshire village have been boarded`up for many years.

:25:02.:25:04.

So, could the Spa be brought back to life?

:25:05.:25:11.

People still enjoy coming to the spanner to take a depth. As the name

:25:12.:25:19.

suggests, the village is a long history with water.

:25:20.:25:24.

The spanner are shy came by accident, when Maynor searching for

:25:25.:25:31.

call accidentally hit on a water spout. The story goes that some

:25:32.:25:43.

local people drank the water and were cured of the illness. A

:25:44.:25:48.

bathhouse in a tail were built and people flocked to taste the water.

:25:49.:25:54.

Highly concentrated sea water, is the best way to describe it. I would

:25:55.:26:03.

not recommend you drink it on a regular basis. A lot of people dead.

:26:04.:26:08.

You would not find many people drinking it now, but ten years ago,

:26:09.:26:13.

attempts were made to use it. In 2004, the golfer till you try to

:26:14.:26:20.

pump it up into its own spanner. At the moment, the pump is broken. They

:26:21.:26:27.

cannot use the original waters at the moment. People say they enjoy

:26:28.:26:32.

the experience. It is very difficult to make medical claims, because you

:26:33.:26:37.

cannot substantiate it, but we feel the minerals help people. The

:26:38.:26:44.

original bathhouse is up for sale and the water is still under there.

:26:45.:26:52.

I am of the Shotley myself. Letters have a cap of the national

:26:53.:26:55.

headlines. The UK's terror threat level is

:26:56.:27:01.

raised to severe, meaning an attack Yorkshire ambulance staff walk

:27:02.:27:04.

out on strike again, as the row And tomorrow's weather `

:27:05.:27:07.

some cloud in places and sunny spells, too, with just

:27:08.:27:10.

the occasional shower expected. Talking about the ambulance

:27:11.:27:22.

straight, Newell says all public services should have a no strike

:27:23.:27:27.

agreement. But Emily says, good luck to the paramedics getting what they

:27:28.:27:35.

want. It says I fully support them going on strike. Like the police and

:27:36.:27:40.

Fire Service, these people are always undervalued. Thank you for

:27:41.:27:46.

all your responses this week. Have a good weekend.
