car parking charges to be scrapped. The MP for Scunthorpe says high

:00:47.:01:26.

charges add to the ordeal of already ill people.

:01:27.:01:35.

But parking revenue is worth more than ?200 million to the NHS and

:01:36.:01:43.

some say the idea is unrealistic. Parking charges can make hospital

:01:44.:01:46.

visits even more stressful. This couple paid a ?2 50 for an

:01:47.:02:02.

appointment that lasted less than half an hour. The government says

:02:03.:02:23.

free and reduce parking should be available for people with

:02:24.:02:26.

disabilities are people with gravely ill relatives. The Scunthorpe MP

:02:27.:02:49.

once charges scrapped altogether. ``wants charges

:02:50.:02:54.

When people are ill the last thing they need is money worries at that

:02:55.:03:04.

It is far better if there are not many

:03:05.:03:12.

But some patient groups say free hospital parking

:03:13.:03:17.

could be achieved but the constraints of the system will not

:03:18.:03:23.

The land is not there. The money is not there in

:03:24.:03:37.

terms of the revenue aspect from car parking. If you insist that

:03:38.:03:40.

hospitals devote what effort and space they can to car parking

:03:41.:03:42.

provision, that money is out of a single pot and will come from

:03:43.:03:45.

clinical care. It is vital that there are car

:03:46.:03:47.

parking charges. If it is going to the hospital I've not got a problem

:03:48.:03:51.

with it. You look why do we have to pay. All hospital

:03:52.:03:54.

trusts do offer concessional parking but of years charges have increased

:03:55.:03:56.

now the government has issued guidelines to all NHS organisations

:03:57.:03:59.

that free or reduced parking should be available to more people,

:04:00.:04:02.

including those with disabilities, with gravely ill relatives and staff

:04:03.:04:04.

where public transport is not available right now.

:04:05.:04:06.

Nic Dakin is continuing to lobby the government on this issue

:04:07.:04:08.

but with parking charges worth an estimated ?250 million to

:04:09.:04:11.

the NHS nationally, it's revenue that might be difficult to replace.

:04:12.:04:13.

Kate, how realistic is it to have free parking at hospitals?

:04:14.:04:16.

In short, the Department of Health says it doesn't want a law against

:04:17.:04:19.

parking charges. This is a huge revenue earner for hospitals which

:04:20.:04:22.

at a time when their budgets have been frozen, would be almost

:04:23.:04:25.

impossible to claw back. It is important to point out that all

:04:26.:04:28.

hopital trust do offer concessionary charges, so a reduced rate for

:04:29.:04:30.

disabled people for example. The government guidlines issed a

:04:31.:04:32.

disabled people for example. The government guidlines issued a

:04:33.:04:35.

fortnight ago are designed to help, but they are up to the hopital trust

:04:36.:04:38.

if they want to implement them. So if bosses think it's acceptable to

:04:39.:04:57.

charge say ?2 an hour they are perfectly allowed to do so. One

:04:58.:05:00.

possible change, the government has said it wants to see hospitals

:05:01.:05:03.

introducing pay on exit schemes for people who don't have change when

:05:04.:05:06.

they arrive, which it said would help patients and their families,

:05:41.:05:43.

after the club's record spend on new Fans and football experts are

:05:44.:05:58.

praising the Hull City Manager Steve players. Hull were the busiest

:05:59.:06:05.

premier league side in the transfer window. The final signing was only

:06:06.:06:08.

made in the early hours of this morning when the FA granted a last

:06:09.:06:11.

minute extension. Crispin Rolfe was there as the deals were signed.

:06:12.:06:14.

It took a late night extension, but France star Hatem Ben Arfa said

:06:15.:06:17.

"yes" to the Tigers yesterday. As Hull City did some of the Premier

:06:18.:06:20.

League's best deadline deals. The pieces fell into place for four

:06:21.:06:23.

major new signings. First Uruguayan striker Abel Hernandez ` a club

:06:24.:06:26.

record ?!0 million for a World Cup player with seven

:06:27.:06:28.

international goals in 14 appearances. Defensive midfielder

:06:29.:06:56.

and Senegal Captain, Mo Diame, for ?3.5 million. And then two

:06:57.:06:58.

late surprises ` Southampton's Gaston Ramirez, signed on a season

:06:59.:07:01.

long loan along with Newcastle's Hatem Ben Arfa both highly rated

:07:02.:07:04.

attacking midfielders: And the credit for all this excitement seems

:07:05.:07:06.

to be going to manager Steve Bruce. A lifelong Hull City fan. I've never

:07:07.:07:14.

seen anything like it. I think they are good, yeah.

:07:15.:07:17.

I think they are going to change the team.

:07:18.:07:21.

Ramirez is coming and Ben Arfa. All the hype over the one`hour

:07:22.:07:22.

extension, it's just absolutely crazy.

:07:23.:07:24.

Earlier Senegal's captain Mo Diame also added to the craziness by

:07:25.:07:26.

signing autographs as well as for the Tigers, leaving pundits

:07:27.:07:29.

amazed by the amount of business Steve Bruce has been able to do.

:07:30.:07:31.

What he has here is people who can open the door.

:07:32.:07:35.

Ramirez hasn't really done it at Southampton but everybody knows

:07:36.:07:37.

about his ability. Ben Arfa, the same thing at Newcastle,

:07:38.:07:39.

hasn't really happened for him but on his day, absolutely unstoppable.

:07:40.:07:42.

The icing on the cake was the little bit of the maverick one

:07:43.:07:45.

in Ben Arfa, who we all know is a wonderful talent.

:07:46.:07:48.

He will bring that little bit of flair and creativity,

:07:49.:07:51.

which every team needs. Have you ever done a better day's

:07:52.:07:52.

transfer business in your career? Well, I mean, listen I with my staff

:07:53.:07:57.

and a lot of people work tirelessly behind me.

:07:58.:08:00.

I think we have done fantastic business.

:08:01.:08:03.

And that's the common consensus with players and pundits saying

:08:04.:08:05.

come with him it was a key factor. Steve Bruce is a huge factor. His

:08:06.:08:07.

personal charisma, his man management and it is what he has

:08:08.:08:10.

achieved. Players like to get to cup finals and play in Europe and that

:08:11.:08:14.

is a big factor.

:08:15.:08:16.

Overall Hull City have spent more than ?25 million

:08:17.:08:18.

in this transfer window. So ambitious, yes, but there is one

:08:19.:08:19.

headache, how to fit all their A coroner has ruled that a

:08:20.:08:22.

Lincolnshire doctor who drowned off the coast of Tenerife died

:08:23.:08:26.

accidentally. Dr Barathi Ravikumar ` who was a GP at Bracebridge Heath

:08:27.:08:29.

near Lincoln ` drowned along with Dr Uma Ramalingam in April. An inquest

:08:30.:08:32.

in Stockport heard they were caught by unexpectedly large waves while

:08:33.:08:35.

standing on rocks. A woman who suffered serious facial

:08:36.:08:53.

injuries after falling over on new paving in Grimsby town centre won't

:08:54.:08:56.

be given any compensation. 74`year`old Anne Heenan suffered a

:08:57.:08:58.

broken nose and twisted ankle after falling on New Street. North East

:08:59.:09:03.

Lincolnshire Council said the fall was not due to the design of the

:09:04.:09:06.

kerb and not a defect. Hull's Ice Arena has failed to

:09:07.:09:12.

reopen as planned this evening after being closed for most of the summer.

:09:13.:09:15.

The council says there is a technical fault. The arena has been

:09:16.:09:18.

closed to fit a new cooling system Spalding in Lincolnshire has gone on

:09:19.:09:21.

trial in Thailand after he criticised working conditions in the

:09:22.:09:33.

country's Pineapple industry. Andy Hall is charged with criminal

:09:34.:09:35.

defamation because of the comments he made about the company, Natural

:09:36.:09:38.

Fruit. He faces up to seven years in jail if he's found guilty. He wants

:09:39.:09:41.

the British Government to help him. His report alleged poor conditions

:09:42.:10:02.

for workers at a company owned by Natural Fruit. If he loses his case

:10:03.:10:06.

he could spend up to seven years in prison. The intention behind the

:10:07.:10:16.

cases to silence me because I'm rude peeling what the government and

:10:17.:10:26.

industry do not want me to say. `` revealing. Today I am fighting my

:10:27.:10:46.

case, that is all. He has good support internationally and has good

:10:47.:10:50.

lawyers so we hope he shall win the case. He is trying to protect the

:10:51.:11:01.

migrants and the poor. I speak to him every day and he has a very

:11:02.:11:27.

positive person. `` he is. The Foreign Office has told us they are

:11:28.:11:29.

aware of his case. Still ahead tonight: End of the line

Variable amounts of cloud once more. There will be some sunny breaks and

:12:45.:12:53.

high pressure in charge but also cloud trapped underneath the area of

:12:54.:13:03.

high pressure. There has been the sunshine today. Skegness was

:13:04.:13:06.

beautiful for a time but has no clouded back over from the

:13:07.:13:10.

south`east. There is the cloud that spoiled things through the course of

:13:11.:13:14.

this afternoon, in particular quite thick cloud but it continues to

:13:15.:13:17.

slowly nudge away eastwards. It looks like the cloud will come into

:13:18.:13:25.

Skegness and Bush westwards overnight so after Aquila interlude

:13:26.:13:29.

looks like all parts will be cloudy. The odd spot of drizzle by dawn.

:13:30.:13:35.

There will be a light easterly breeze. Next time water time will be

:13:36.:13:45.

an Skegness at one minute past midnight. `` in Skegness. It should

:13:46.:14:02.

brighten up into the afternoon but with variable amounts of cloud. It

:14:03.:14:06.

should feel quite pleasant with 70 degrees in Bridlington and 21

:14:07.:14:21.

degrees further south. `` 17 degrees. Temperatures will be close

:14:22.:14:28.

to just above the average amount for September.

:14:29.:15:14.

News yesterday that bosses running three hospitals in northern

:15:15.:15:16.

Lincolnshire and Goole have been awarded pay rises of more than

:15:17.:15:18.

a year each has led to widespread criticism.

:15:19.:15:20.

unions, say they do not agree that those in charge of the Trust need to

:15:21.:15:25.

increase salaries to hold onto senior staff. Most NHS staff are

:15:26.:15:29.

We had a huge response to this story and I'm joined by the man who signed

:15:30.:15:47.

off the pay rises at Goole, Scunthorpe and Grimsby Hospitals, to

:15:48.:15:50.

put some of your questions to him. Dr Jim Whittingham, you are the

:15:51.:15:53.

chairman of the trust do you understand why these pay rises are

:15:54.:15:56.

And we knew they would be controversial. At the end of the day

:15:57.:16:12.

it is my job to look after the best interest of the trust and in our

:16:13.:16:23.

view the best interests are served by such measures. How can you

:16:24.:16:31.

justify this when your front line staff are getting 1%? Our intention

:16:32.:16:41.

has always been to move those salaries to a competitive position.

:16:42.:16:48.

Linda says if she were one of the hundreds of staff limited to 1% pay

:16:49.:16:53.

rise she would feel like a face had been robbed in the dark. We do not

:16:54.:17:00.

set to pay for the thousands of doctors and nurses who work here.

:17:01.:17:07.

Those paid rates are set nationally. You say that our murky forces and

:17:08.:17:31.

the going rate. ``market forces. If we had to go out to the marketplace

:17:32.:17:34.

and we would have to pay similar salaries to attract people. This is

:17:35.:17:43.

not a system that we invented. But it is a system that we need to play

:17:44.:17:46.

with as a foundation trust and it is extremely important that the trust

:17:47.:17:53.

is well lead. But you could have stopped this? Yes and we would have

:17:54.:18:00.

taken a different rest. I am paid by the National Health Service to look

:18:01.:18:09.

after the interests of this trust. But you have only just come out on a

:18:10.:18:12.

very torrid time in special measures. That is to the great

:18:13.:18:18.

credit of the thousands of doctors and nurses that we employ and also

:18:19.:18:21.

of great credit to the team that have led them. If you look across

:18:22.:18:27.

our performance we have come out of special measures and we are

:18:28.:18:32.

successful in terms of accident and emergency targets. I can hear some

:18:33.:18:38.

people shouting at the television. Your message would be what? Our

:18:39.:18:52.

staff are well led by an executive team that are transparent and

:18:53.:19:01.

capable. Our staff are well led and need to be well lead. Everybody is

:19:02.:19:06.

doing a fine job and will continue to do so in taking the trust

:19:07.:19:16.

forward. Thank you for and soothing those difficult questions.

:19:17.:19:31.

``answering those difficult questions.

:19:32.:19:49.

There's concern about the price and supply and fish in Grimsby, if

:19:50.:19:51.

Scotland votes to leave the UK next month. Grimsby processes about 80%

:19:52.:19:54.

of the UK's fish, and while most of it comes from Iceland and Norway,

:19:55.:19:58.

many businesses have Scottish suppliers too. Our Business

:19:59.:20:00.

Correspondent Sarah Corker has been looking at the industry's links with

:20:01.:20:02.

While the rest of Grimsby still sleep,

:20:03.:20:13.

merchants gather for the 7am auction at the UK's biggest fish market.

:20:14.:20:15.

?10...20... 30.. 40... It's a fast`paced affair.

:20:16.:20:17.

Most of the produce here usually comes from Iceland or Norway

:20:18.:20:20.

but recent bad weather has seen more Scottish fish on sale.

:20:21.:20:23.

We always like to have Scottish fish available to sell because

:20:24.:20:26.

some people prefer Scottish fish. Price is a biggest factor in the

:20:27.:20:29.

end. It varies from week to week what is

:20:30.:20:31.

available. This cod was landed yesterday in

:20:32.:20:33.

Peterhead in Scotland and transported overnight by road,

:20:34.:20:35.

arriving here at Grimsby fish market this morning.

:20:36.:20:37.

It will then be sold and end up in fish and chip shops, fish mongers

:20:38.:20:42.

and supermarkets across England. So would independence affect that

:20:43.:20:44.

supply? I think Scottish independence is

:20:45.:20:45.

wrong. Britain is better together.

:20:46.:20:50.

Aberdeen to Grimsby 15 years ago. You would end up exporting fish from

:20:51.:20:55.

Grimsby up to Scotland. What would the currency be?

:20:56.:20:59.

Likewise, a lot of fish comes down from Scotland to Grimsby

:21:00.:21:01.

and how would they work it? Grimsby is Britain's fish`processing

:21:02.:21:04.

capital with 75 businesses. Young's Seafood is the number one

:21:05.:21:06.

buyer of Scottish farmed salmon. With processing sites both sides of

:21:07.:21:09.

the border, its Grimsby factory is focusing on salmon production.

:21:10.:21:14.

While big firms like Icelandic SeaChill and supermarket

:21:15.:21:18.

chain, Morrisons, process fish brought down from Scotland.

:21:19.:21:20.

Those at the heart of the industry here believe whatever the outcome

:21:21.:21:28.

on how much fish is allowed to come from Scotland into

:21:29.:21:38.

Grimsby and Hull because all the merchants around here do bring a

:21:39.:21:40.

lot of fish down from Scotland. Of course, England itself is

:21:41.:21:43.

Scotland's biggest market for the sale of fish, so it will continue.

:21:44.:21:46.

But could Scotland choose to do more of its own fish processing?

:21:47.:21:49.

The SNP is lobbying for funding to do just that.

:21:50.:21:52.

Fishmongers in Cleethorpes shrugged off any effect that

:21:53.:22:14.

I don't think that would change if Scotland get independence, they

:22:15.:22:20.

will have their processing facilities, we will have ours.

:22:21.:22:22.

Scotland and England trade both ways, the view here is that will

:22:23.:22:25.

to save.a railway signal box in south Lincolnshire. People in

:22:26.:22:32.

Deeping St James are angry that rail bosses are going to demolish the 150

:22:33.:22:37.

year`old building. Simon Spark reports.

:22:38.:22:49.

Tonight there is a meeting to save a piece of village yesterday. This

:22:50.:22:58.

signal box has stayed here for 166 years but now stands in the way of

:22:59.:23:06.

new equipment. But these signatories also stand in the way. This is our

:23:07.:23:14.

box and we have a lot of enthusiasm to keep this box. My husband

:23:15.:23:19.

remembers many a day helping his father out here. It has an awful lot

:23:20.:23:37.

of memory. We cannot get any dates from Network Real as to when it is

:23:38.:23:41.

being knocked down so it is quite imminent. We have three of the

:23:42.:23:49.

barriers already put up. The barrier still to go up will be in place of

:23:50.:23:56.

the signal box. Network Real and investing millions to modernise the

:23:57.:24:00.

network but despite the list Alger manually operated signal boxes are

:24:01.:24:06.

no longer required. Network Real city have listened to the concerns

:24:07.:24:12.

of the local timidity and are working to preserve as much of the

:24:13.:24:17.

box as possible but it cannot remain in its current location as the land

:24:18.:24:23.

is needed for the new signalling system. ``local community.

in a production of Jesus Christ Superstar which will be performed

next year inside the city's Cathedral. The musical caused

:24:46.:24:49.

controversy when it was first launched in London four decades ago,

:24:50.:24:51.

When it was first shown on stage, Jesus Christ Superstar was met with

:24:52.:25:17.

protest ` some feeling it was offensive to the church, even

:25:18.:25:20.

blasphemous. But how times have changed.

:25:21.:25:22.

The musical, written by Andrew Lloyd Webber, is going to be performed

:25:23.:25:32.

Tonight open auditions begin to find a chorus of hundreds for the show

next July. It's the first step to transforming the Cathedral into a

performance venue. In a year when it announced it needed twice as many
