Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:00.:00:00.

A troubled hospital trust defends giving big pay increases to

:00:00.:00:10.

its bosses, as unions say it's unfair to front line staff.

:00:11.:00:28.

But macro ala members of staff are more than fed up. It does not add

:00:29.:00:35.

up. The decisions were intended to protect the best interests of the

:00:36.:00:37.

trust, despite the inevitable controversy that generates.

:00:38.:00:39.

"Welcome back Ryan" ` the Lincolnshire teenager returns

And we meet young girls from East Yorkshire who have become

Big deals as Hull City's manager and owner look to strengthen their squad

for the coming year. I'm at a training ground with the

very latest on transfer deadline day.

:01:04.:01:10.

And we meet young girls from East Yorkshire who have become

:01:11.:01:13.

And the all`important week ahead weather forecast.

:01:14.:01:23.

Bosses running three hospitals in northern Lincolnshire and Goole

:01:24.:01:25.

have been awarded pay rises of more than ?10,000 a year.

:01:26.:01:30.

While the increases have been strongly

:01:31.:01:32.

criticised by local politicians and the unions, those in charge of

:01:33.:01:35.

the Trust say they need to increase salaries to hold onto staff.

:01:36.:01:41.

The Royal College of Nursing say it wants the government to put

:01:42.:01:47.

Our health correspondent Vicky Johnson reports.

:01:48.:01:49.

Karen Jackson's been at the helm of the Northern Lincolnshire

:01:50.:01:52.

and Goole Trust during some of its most turbulent years.

:01:53.:01:55.

High death rates, special measures and now

:01:56.:01:57.

But the pay of those in charge hasn't been affected.

:01:58.:02:04.

Three years ago, chief executive Karen Jackson was earning

:02:05.:02:08.

It's now gone up to ?180,000 to ?185,000, a rise of 29 per cent.

:02:09.:02:16.

The Chief Nurse, Dr Karen Dunderdale, received between ?40,000

:02:17.:02:22.

She's now also the Trust's Deputy Chief Executive and receives

:02:23.:02:28.

a salary of between ?100,000 and ?105,000, a rise of 150%.

:02:29.:02:36.

It's all down to market forces, says the trust's chairman,

:02:37.:02:40.

That market is a competitive market, and we need a competitive

:02:41.:02:53.

position to allow us to recruit and retain key executives. They've only

:02:54.:02:57.

just come out of special measures. They were being investigated for

:02:58.:03:00.

unexpectedly high death rates. Were they doing a good enough job to

:03:01.:03:04.

warrant that sort of pay increase? We certainly are. We have seen

:03:05.:03:07.

trusts come out of special measures, as a result of trust

:03:08.:03:12.

staff, doctors and nurses, who have been well lead in achieving an

:03:13.:03:17.

accident from special measures. These executive pay rises haven't

:03:18.:03:20.

been well received by front`line staff, who are already being

:03:21.:03:24.

balloted nationally on industrial action. The NHS deal will only give

:03:25.:03:29.

1% to those not receiving a pay award through progression.

:03:30.:03:33.

They feel increasingly beleaguered in the fact that the trust see fit

:03:34.:03:41.

to remunerate high`paid, high members of the board, but that their

:03:42.:03:44.

terms and conditions when they see fit.

:03:45.:03:47.

Those in charge to acknowledge that executive pay is controversial, and

:03:48.:03:50.

it is likely to remain so as long as it is down to local market forces

:03:51.:03:51.

and not settled nationally. Earlier I spoke to Brigg and

:03:52.:03:55.

Goole MP Andrew Percy. I asked him if he was happy

:03:56.:03:58.

at the pay rises. Well, they are responsible and

:03:59.:04:08.

important jobs, but so is being a nurse and a health care assistant,

:04:09.:04:11.

and nurses and health care assistants are only getting a 1% pay

:04:12.:04:15.

are set by an independent are set by an independent

:04:16.:04:18.

committee, they haven't given them their cells, they? Of course not,

:04:19.:04:22.

and a lot of these people I work with and deal with, and they are

:04:23.:04:27.

good people. I'm not sure now is the time to be awarding such high pay

:04:28.:04:32.

rises, however. They have done well in their jobs, the trust is at a

:04:33.:04:36.

special measures, shouldn't they be rewarded? It is out of special

:04:37.:04:40.

measure thanks largely to the hard work of doctors, nurses, midwives

:04:41.:04:43.

and every body else. If there will be a double`digit pay rise, it

:04:44.:04:45.

should apply to everybody or nobody. The last increase for staff at the

:04:46.:04:50.

trust was 1%. How will they feel tonight they watch this? I'm in

:04:51.:04:54.

contact with quite a lot of nurses anyway, and if you are the mapping

:04:55.:04:57.

onto me saying they feel really undervalued and really disappointed,

:04:58.:05:00.

that senior management are seeing a massive increase while they are

:05:01.:05:04.

not. I think they will be upset, quite rightly so.

:05:05.:05:06.

The executive turnover at the trust over the last two years has been

:05:07.:05:10.

quite a lot. If you want to keep these people, retain them, you have

:05:11.:05:15.

to pay competitively in the marketplace. That is a problem we

:05:16.:05:18.

have had. Over the last decade and they are, we have had a massive

:05:19.:05:22.

explosion in senior executive pay in the public sector, and at that has

:05:23.:05:24.

been allowed to happen, we have massive competition within the

:05:25.:05:27.

public sector as well as the private sector, and that is something I am

:05:28.:05:30.

afraid politicians need to answer for.

:05:31.:05:33.

So, you're viewing one sentence on these pay increases is what?

:05:34.:05:39.

They are people doing the jobs, they are very decent at their jobs, but

:05:40.:05:42.

this is not the right time to be awarding such big pay rises when the

:05:43.:05:46.

rest of our NHS staff are facing a relative pay freeze.

:05:47.:05:46.

Good to talk to you. What do you think

:05:47.:05:48.

about this amount of pay rise? Should executive pay rise

:05:49.:05:50.

at the same rate as the pay Or are senior workers taking on

extra responsibility at a difficult Our contact details are

on the screen. The Scottish referendum ` we look

:05:57.:06:27.

at what a "yes" to independence It's a day his family

:06:28.:06:32.

thought they'd never see. Today Ryan Smith returned to

:06:33.:06:46.

his home in Lincolnshire, just over a year

:06:47.:06:49.

after being knocked off his bike. The 17`year`old spent weeks

:06:50.:06:51.

in a coma and his family were told After months of specialist care, it

:06:52.:06:54.

has been an emotional homecoming. Jill Archbold reports from

:06:55.:06:58.

Chapel St Leonards. This time last year, Ryan Smith was

:06:59.:07:13.

in a coma. Now, he is welcomed back home, 14 months since he was last

:07:14.:07:18.

here. It has just been so emotional today. It is just amazing to see all

:07:19.:07:24.

the family back together again, and it is better than winning the

:07:25.:07:25.

lottery, really, isn't it? I can't lottery, really, isn't it? I can't

:07:26.:07:29.

believe the amount of people who have turned out for him. He has won

:07:30.:07:33.

so many battles over the past 14 months. I am a little bit tearful. I

:07:34.:07:41.

don't know where to start. I just can't believe how popular this young

:07:42.:07:47.

man has become. , do you want to take him? Ryan was

:07:48.:07:53.

knocked off his bike cycling to work last summer. He wasn't wearing a

:07:54.:07:58.

helmet. Among the guests, the paramedic who attended him.

:07:59.:08:01.

Everyone in the family has fought and stood by Ryan's site, and he has

:08:02.:08:05.

fought like the stalwart Wars and the worry that he is. That is his

:08:06.:08:11.

nickname now, the Blond Warrior. Since November, his home has been a

:08:12.:08:15.

specialist centre in Surrey, run by the charity the children's trust. It

:08:16.:08:18.

was four months after his accident that he said his first words here.

:08:19.:08:22.

By Christmas last year, Ryan was starting to show some signs of

:08:23.:08:27.

movement in his left side. After daily physiotherapy sessions,

:08:28.:08:32.

by spring, he was working on standing.

:08:33.:08:39.

Back in Lincolnshire... Ryan's family home has been modified to

:08:40.:08:42.

give him as much independence as possible.

:08:43.:08:45.

How long have you been waiting to come home? It has been a long time,

:08:46.:08:51.

hasn't it? Yes. What is the first thing you are going to do in your

:08:52.:09:00.

new place? I'm going to watch TV! Play on my Xbox. Ryan never got to

:09:01.:09:04.

pick up his GCSE results like his friends, but like many other

:09:05.:09:08.

teenagers, September for him is back into education.

:09:09.:09:11.

But for now, this is all about welcoming back a family member who

:09:12.:09:20.

has been away from home for so long. An amazing day for everyone

:09:21.:09:24.

concerned. We wish Ryan and his whole family the best.

:09:25.:09:26.

Police in Spalding are appealing for help from local people

:09:27.:09:29.

as they investigate the death of 42`year`old Warren Fee.

:09:30.:09:33.

He died in hospital on Friday from head injuries.

:09:34.:09:36.

Seven young people arrested as part of the investigation have

:09:37.:09:38.

Fire crews have spent the day damping down

:09:39.:09:43.

at a building in Louth after being called out early this morning.

:09:44.:09:46.

It took six crews to bring the fire under control.

:09:47.:09:48.

Investigators will return to the site tomorrow to try

:09:49.:09:50.

The Canadian Lancaster will not fly at the Lincolnshire Aviation

:09:51.:09:54.

The plane needs to have an engine replaced

:09:55.:09:57.

A police campaign to catch people who don't use their seat belt has

:09:58.:10:05.

been branded a "nonsense" by a former Yorkshire MEP.

:10:06.:10:09.

Police say hundreds of deaths could be prevented every year if everyone

:10:10.:10:15.

belted up ` but that half of back seat passengers fail to do so.

:10:16.:10:22.

In a moment we'll hear from Godfrey Bloom, who represents the Drivers'

:10:23.:10:25.

Union, but first Kate Sweeting has been on patrol with officers

:10:26.:10:28.

Driving through Grimsby this morning, it wasn't long before we

:10:29.:10:39.

saw someone not wearing their seat belts. Have you been dealt with for

:10:40.:10:44.

this offence previously? This man was offered a reduced fine and an

:10:45.:10:48.

online safety course, but if he had been a repeat offender, the fine

:10:49.:10:51.

would have been ?100. I just stopped at the shop, jumped

:10:52.:10:54.

back in the car, and I just forgot about my seat belt back on.

:10:55.:10:57.

As a safety device that is in most modern cars, it sounds an audible

:10:58.:11:05.

alert, and some debug around that by putting the seat belt and then

:11:06.:11:07.

sitting on top of it, which beggars belief, really.

:11:08.:11:11.

Last year, Humberside Police got more than 2000 people not wearing a

:11:12.:11:14.

seat belt, and it is thought that 370 deaths and 7000 serious injuries

:11:15.:11:19.

could have been prevented across the country last year if everyone had

:11:20.:11:23.

been wearing one. The collision with the car didn't kill him. TV adverts

:11:24.:11:29.

like this one are designed to have a dramatic impact. In 1993, it became

:11:30.:11:33.

illegal to fail to wear a seat belt when travelling at the driver or

:11:34.:11:37.

passenger in a motor vehicle, but only 85% of front seat passengers

:11:38.:11:43.

and half back`seat passengers wears one. It is up to the police to make

:11:44.:11:46.

They are doing it to save lives, They are doing it to save lives,

:11:47.:11:50.

that is the main thing, so it is a good thing they are doing.

:11:51.:11:56.

It's either catching bus without seat belt or hiding behind a bridge,

:11:57.:11:59.

catching people speeding. Umag I think they should be monitoring it,

:12:00.:12:03.

that is not that I'm looking for people, that the other stuff they

:12:04.:12:05.

need to get on with. Police say they have seen a

:12:06.:12:08.

reduction in the number of of people not wearing seat belts, but it is a

:12:09.:12:11.

risk that thousands of people in this area are still willing to take.

:12:12.:12:14.

Earlier I spoke to the former MEP Godfrey Bloom who campaigns

:12:15.:12:16.

I asked him if he thought it was a shame that only a half of back

:12:17.:12:22.

Yes, I think it is a shame, and I think they should. Everybody is a

:12:23.:12:34.

lot safer wearing a seat belt. Do you agree that someone who is caught

:12:35.:12:37.

should be fined and go on a course? no, I don't. I don't believe in what

:12:38.:12:41.

should be a free society. It should be the business of the police. It is

:12:42.:12:47.

the sensible, thing to do, belt, but I think it brings our police into

:12:48.:12:50.

disrepute and this kind of Aaron. I don't know whether you remember 17

:12:51.:12:57.

years ago, when Assistant Chief Constable Clark ran the same

:12:58.:13:00.

campaign. What it did was alienate the public, and the public feel that

:13:01.:13:03.

the police should have better things to do than this. And you think they

:13:04.:13:07.

have got better things to do? I think they have. When I was an MEP

:13:08.:13:11.

for the region, people were saying there doesn't seem to be resources

:13:12.:13:14.

for rural crime, drug dealing openly on the streets are people's estate

:13:15.:13:19.

stop`macro but family lives and injuries could be saved every year

:13:20.:13:22.

by getting seat belt on? Surely as president of the Drivers

:13:23.:13:27.

union, you should be applauding the police force? No, I don't. Why don't

:13:28.:13:32.

begin to the role of the police. There is nobody else to do it! More

:13:33.:13:36.

people are injured in their domestic kitchens and bathrooms than I ever

:13:37.:13:39.

injured on the road. I was suggesting policemen should help us

:13:40.:13:44.

in and out of the battle? Ali suggesting that macro Hang on, two

:13:45.:13:48.

years ago, you were telling me that speed cameras should be done away

:13:49.:13:50.

with and are ineffective, and now this.

:13:51.:13:53.

If you had your own way, it would be like the wacky races out there. Not

:13:54.:13:57.

at all. I would like to get common sense back into the leasing of our

:13:58.:14:01.

roads, and this is not common sense.

:14:02.:14:03.

But if we're not doing it, unhappy people in the backs of cars had not

:14:04.:14:06.

seat belt on, we need the police will start no, we don't. It is not

:14:07.:14:10.

the role of the police. We don't live in a police state. We should

:14:11.:14:13.

not live in a police state. I want to see the police get back to real

:14:14.:14:16.

policing, and when I service Commissioner for police, I actually

:14:17.:14:22.

said this is the sort of nonsense I would stamp out. Let's get people

:14:23.:14:25.

back to real policing. Very good to see you.

:14:26.:14:27.

There we are. Should police be spending their time

:14:28.:14:29.

catching drivers who don't belt up? Or should resources and officers be

:14:30.:14:32.

used investigating other crimes? Half of us who sit in the backs of

:14:33.:14:40.

cars and then put their seat belt on. If you want to e`mail in, the

:14:41.:14:42.

address is on the screen. We're live at

:14:43.:14:49.

tomorrow night at the same time. Good evening. You were back last

:15:22.:15:28.

Tuesday, on Friday. This means you have done a three`day week! It is

:15:29.:15:33.

like being in the seventies! My agent said I should get the same

:15:34.:15:36.

conditions. Less is more! Don't all rush at

once. The headline for the next 24 hours

:15:43.:15:45.

is not a bad one. It is settled, rather a lot of cloud at times, some

:15:46.:15:50.

bright or sunny intervals. August turned out to be the coolest since

:15:51.:15:54.

1993, so at least things are settling down quite nicely. High

:15:55.:15:59.

pressure in charge. This will bring the cloud backing from the North Sea

:16:00.:16:03.

overnight, so tomorrow will be quite cloudy, but a better chance of

:16:04.:16:10.

brightness Wednesday and Thursday. A front that came through this morning

:16:11.:16:13.

gave rein in the Lincolnshire area, which is now across East Anglia. A

:16:14.:16:18.

lot of us are fine at the moment, with cloudy skies. Bright or sunny

:16:19.:16:21.

intervals, and then overnight, the crowd will break up for a time, but

:16:22.:16:26.

then returned from the North Sea. That cloud could bring just a little

:16:27.:16:32.

drizzle in places, the most part will be dry, temperatures 11 or 12

:16:33.:16:35.

Celsius. The sun rises in the morning, at 11 minutes past six.

will brighten up a bit, and there could be one or two light showers,

:16:53.:16:58.

but it is a predominantly dry and fine day. Some bright or sunny

:16:59.:17:00.

intervals and just a light breeze from the East. I think we will be a

:17:01.:17:06.

couple of degrees down into a bridge, and highs of about 18

:17:07.:17:13.

Celsius. The risk of one or two light showers Tuesday night into

:17:24.:17:26.

Wednesday and Thursday, temperatures up to 21 degrees, and that's fine

:17:27.:17:30.

settled weather lasts through Friday and into next week.

:17:31.:17:35.

That is the forecast. There has been a kerfuffle over you looking green.

:19:38.:19:42.

More powers should be moved out of London so that people in the North

:19:43.:19:45.

and Midlands as well as Scotland have more say over their affairs. We

:19:46.:19:51.

are much better at dealing with our skills problem here in Hull than

:19:52.:19:55.

people in Whitehall are going to be. There is no sense people in

:19:56.:19:58.

Whitehall thinking they can answer those problems. They can't.

:19:59.:20:02.

So while Scotland may not be on our doorstep, the outcome there might

:20:03.:20:03.

still have an influence here. Kevin Keane is a BBC Correspondent

:20:04.:20:06.

who grew up in Bridlington You know East Yorkshire

:20:07.:20:08.

and Lincolnshire well ` why should people here care

:20:09.:20:11.

about what happens up there? I think if they don't, then come

:20:12.:20:27.

September 19, Peter, if there is a yes vote, then they will be faced

:20:28.:20:31.

with quite a significant shock, because there will be 18 months from

:20:32.:20:36.

that point onwards until Scotland becomes independent, and during that

:20:37.:20:40.

time, or the negotiations have to take place between the two

:20:41.:20:43.

governments, and of course, businesses that operate on both

:20:44.:20:46.

sides of the border will also have two change, sometimes considerably.

:20:47.:20:52.

Aberdeen harbour is where I am, and that is where the oil and gas

:20:53.:20:56.

industry is based. The oil is in the northern half of the North Sea from

:20:57.:21:00.

here, the gas off where you are, so they will clearly have to be some

:21:01.:21:03.

considerable differences there, and in other businesses like fishing,

:21:04.:21:07.

but then of course, you go on to document infrastructure issues like

:21:08.:21:10.

the RAF and who gets what planes. Scotland wants some of the planes

:21:11.:21:14.

will stop will they be once Lincolnshire?

:21:15.:21:18.

Is there much debate in the pubs of Scotland about the vote or is it

:21:19.:21:21.

Oh, no, this is definitely reaching living rooms, pubs, offices, even

:21:22.:21:29.

the oil rigs out there are people who have been working offshore have

:21:30.:21:31.

been telling me that they had been having some very heated debates in

:21:32.:21:34.

the difference, polarising views and the difference, polarising views and

:21:35.:21:40.

opinions are, but come the 19th of this month, that is when we will

:21:41.:21:43.

know what has happened. Think you're much.

:21:44.:21:44.

Well, tomorrow, we'll be looking at the potential impact of the

:21:45.:21:47.

A new type of chip and pin fraud has been uncovered

:21:48.:21:51.

?450 million is lost to credit card fraud in the UK every year.

:21:52.:21:56.

The new method sees fraudsters convert legitimate chip

:21:57.:22:01.

and pin terminals, enabling them to steal cash.

:22:02.:22:10.

A victim from Cleethorpes will be telling her story tonight on BBC

:22:11.:22:16.

Inside Out. That is one not to miss at 7:30 p.m..

:22:17.:22:19.

It will be a late night for Hull City manager Steve Bruce

:22:20.:22:22.

as he looks to bring in new players before the transfer window closes

:22:23.:22:25.

Crispin Rolfe is at the Hull City training ground in Cottingham `

:22:26.:22:31.

there's been action there already this afternoon?

:22:32.:22:35.

Plenty of comings and goings here already today, and it could get much

:22:36.:22:39.

busier as the clock ticks down to the deadline of 11 o'clock

:22:40.:22:42.

Steve Bruce has been here at the training ground, as have

:22:43.:22:46.

And their chequebook has already been out this afternoon with

:22:47.:22:49.

?10 million has been spent on Uruguayan international

:22:50.:22:53.

He's 24 and played at the World Cup, and joins from Italian side Palermo.

:22:54.:22:59.

West Ham's Senegalese midfielder Mohammed Diame could join

:23:00.:23:09.

It's believed a fee for him has been agreed,

:23:10.:23:16.

four hours and ten minutes before the transfer window slams shut.

:23:17.:23:29.

Scunthorpe United got their first win of the League One

:23:30.:23:31.

Hakeeb Adelukan gave the Iron the lead at Glanford Park as he ran

:23:32.:23:35.

Gary McSheffrey then curled a 25`yard free`kick

:23:36.:23:40.

into the top corner for his first goal since re`joining the club.

:23:41.:23:45.

Hull Kingston Rovers coach Chris Chester says some

:23:46.:23:47.

of his players have played their last game for the club.

:23:48.:23:50.

He was angered by Friday's 28`0 defeat

:23:51.:23:52.

It was the first time that they'd failed to score against their

:23:53.:23:57.

It's associated with urban life in big cities.

:23:58.:24:04.

But a street dance group from an East Yorkshire market town

:24:05.:24:07.

has taken second place in a dance World Championships.

:24:08.:24:13.

The girls, who are all aged between 10 and 13,

:24:14.:24:16.

come from in and around Beverley, and Jo Makel has been to meet them.

:24:17.:24:31.

It is a routine inspired by The Wizard Of Oz, but forget any thought

:24:32.:24:38.

of Judy Garland. This version is street dance.

:24:39.:24:44.

It has just turned 18, called Lucky Chip, second place in the under 14

:24:45.:24:54.

category at the UDI world street dance temperatures. Held in Glasgow,

:24:55.:24:57.

it is the largest street dance club addition in the world, involving

:24:58.:25:00.

more than 30 different countries. You have to try to be different,

:25:01.:25:04.

world, we were the only Yorkshire world, we were the only Yorkshire

:25:05.:25:07.

team there. There is a lot of London, Essex `based dance groups. I

:25:08.:25:12.

think there is a lot of opportunity around London, but it is nice that a

:25:13.:25:17.

little town in Beverley could be competing with the big guys from

:25:18.:25:20.

London. Britain got talent winners diversity

:25:21.:25:24.

and programmes like Cost To Dance have been inspirations to the

:25:25.:25:31.

gills. The United Dance Organisation says street dance is growing in

:25:32.:25:34.

popularity. Many of the girls here have done

:25:35.:25:36.

more formal classes like ballet in the past, but say they now preferred

:25:37.:25:40.

the freedom that street dance gives them.

:25:41.:25:45.

I like street dance because you can express yourself and have fun. You

:25:46.:25:50.

can just relax and enjoy yourself, really. There isn't really any

:25:51.:25:54.

rules, unlike other dances like ballet, where you have to be

:25:55.:25:59.

straight and tight. But these girls really do train

:26:00.:26:03.

hard, and are already working towards qualifying for next year's

:26:04.:26:09.

finals. Well done, girls. I am sure they

:26:10.:26:12.

will be watching the programme tonight.

:26:13.:26:13.

Let's get a recap of the national and regional headlines.

:26:14.:26:15.

The parents of 5`year`old Ashya King are in a Spanish jail tonight as

:26:16.:26:18.

Cloudy with a few light showers possible, most places dry with

:26:19.:26:26.

We were talking about pay increases. The trust in North Lincolnshire and

:26:27.:26:43.

Gulf. One viewer says, they have not earned their pay rises. It is such a

:26:44.:26:46.

large increase. It should have been 1% along with other staff. They are

:26:47.:26:50.

only as good as the staff who work for them. It is teamwork. Charles

:26:51.:26:53.

says, why should an executive have more money than the Prime Minister?

:26:54.:26:58.

Christine says, if the executives had any sense of loyalty to their

:26:59.:27:01.

staff, they would decline the pay rises. They are not forced to take

:27:02.:27:04.

it. And Arthur says, aren't we all going through the same difficult

:27:05.:27:08.

times and having to tighten our belts? This should apply to all of

:27:09.:27:11.

us. Thank you very much for those. We will have some of your stories on

:27:12.:27:15.

seat belts tomorrow night between 6:30pm and 7:00 p.m.. Join me later

:27:16.:27:22.

:27:23.:27:23.

you later. Goodbye.
