Britain will not be cowed, says the Prime Minister. That

Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:00.:00:00.

A family's heartbreak as thieves steal a watch given

:00:07.:00:11.

It's not just a watch. It's so much more than that. It's a link with

:00:12.:00:25.

Matthew. I just hope the person who has taken the property can return

:00:26.:00:30.

it. Just so that we can try to get back on what their lives.

:00:31.:00:33.

Revealed for the first time ` the ?25 million spent

:00:34.:00:35.

by our councils every year treating smoking`related diseases.

:00:36.:00:40.

Hundreds of complaints are made about horses

:00:41.:00:43.

I live in Hull horse owners say they have tethered for more than 30 years

:00:44.:01:00.

without any problems. DVD players, nail polish.

:01:01.:01:03.

And the Lincolnshire mum who's won thousands of pounds worth of prizes

:01:04.:01:06.

And quiet weather conditions look set to continue.

:01:07.:01:19.

The family of a soldier who was killed in Afghanistan say they've

:01:20.:01:24.

been left heartbroken after thieves stole treasured belongings that were

:01:25.:01:28.

Sergeant Matthew Telford who was from Grimsby was killed by

:01:29.:01:34.

His family returned to their home after a holiday last week

:01:35.:01:41.

Amongst the items missing is a watch that Matthew placed

:01:42.:01:47.

on his dad's wrist before he went to fight in Afghanistan.

:01:48.:01:51.

Our news correspondent Anne`Marie Tasker reports.

:01:52.:01:55.

After the murder of their son in Afghanistan, every possession

:01:56.:01:58.

Matthew Telford left behind has become precious to his mum and dad.

:01:59.:02:03.

So they were devastated to get home from a family holiday

:02:04.:02:06.

Among the things taken was the Tag Heuer watch Matthew had given to

:02:07.:02:12.

On the night we heard he had been killed, when his body came home and

:02:13.:02:27.

the day of the funeral, as we presented me the watch. You try to

:02:28.:02:36.

get on with your life, you climb up one day, then something knocks you

:02:37.:02:44.

back later this. `` like this. It would be a great help if the persons

:02:45.:02:49.

could return or property that means so much to us.

:02:50.:02:51.

Sergeant Matthew Telford was shot dead by a rogue policeman

:02:52.:02:54.

Hundreds of people attended his funeral in his home town

:02:55.:02:57.

of Grimsby and a park in the town was even renamed in his memory.

:02:58.:03:01.

But for his Mum, getting back his watch would mean everything.

:03:02.:03:08.

I know it's a watch, but it was a link to Matthew that he left his

:03:09.:03:20.

father. It was devastating. He has been very emotional because he feels

:03:21.:03:27.

that he has lost the link he had with Matthew. Whenever we go

:03:28.:03:36.

anywhere, he wears that watch and he feels as though part of Matthew is

:03:37.:03:39.

with him. Police have appealed

:03:40.:03:41.

for the public's help in tracking down the watch like this one and say

:03:42.:03:43.

they're actively investigating the And though his family have many

:03:44.:03:46.

photos, it's the watch that's the treasured link with Matthew

:03:47.:03:50.

they desperately want back. If there are any developments, we

:03:51.:04:01.

will let you know. The Lincolnshire market town told to

:04:02.:04:04.

pull down free parking signs by the council, because they don't

:04:05.:04:08.

meet regulations. The cost to the NHS

:04:09.:04:13.

of treating illnesses caused by smoking is well known but for

:04:14.:04:17.

the first time today new figures reveal just how much local councils

:04:18.:04:20.

spend on caring for smokers. Local authorities in our area spend

:04:21.:04:25.

?25 million supporting people affected by breathing problems

:04:26.:04:30.

and other chronic conditions. The Government believes

:04:31.:04:32.

the true cost is even higher and wants councils to do more to stop

:04:33.:04:36.

people smoking in the first place. Peter Hardman from Hull cared for

:04:37.:04:40.

by his wife Lynn. He has COPD or chronic obstructive

:04:41.:04:48.

pulmonary disorder, which is caused by smoking, and is a disease now

:04:49.:04:52.

claimed to cost millions, not just to the NHS, but in social care

:04:53.:04:59.

for those coping with it at home. I now need the oxygen 16 hours a day

:05:00.:05:11.

minimum, sometimes 24. I use it over night. If I wasn't here he would

:05:12.:05:18.

definitely need someone here 24 hours a day, seven days a week to

:05:19.:05:24.

look after him. He cannot call on his own.

:05:25.:05:28.

The public health charity ASH says the cost of caring for people with

:05:29.:05:31.

smoke`related diseases at home in East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

:05:32.:05:33.

Lincolnshire County Council pays almost ?10 million a year `

:05:34.:05:37.

?9,923,421 ` and Hull City Council close to ?5 million ` ?4,826,753.

:05:38.:05:40.

But the true cost could be much higher.

:05:41.:05:42.

ASH estimates that another ?19 million ` ?18,906,848 `

:05:43.:05:46.

worth of care is provided free by the likes of family members.

:05:47.:05:54.

Over 51,000 people will need support from their families in your region

:05:55.:05:59.

alone and to support them as a result of their smoking habit

:06:00.:06:00.

leading to them having care needs. But with councils and families

:06:01.:06:02.

facing financial pressure. Who should pay for the cost

:06:03.:06:04.

of smoking`related social care? I think the Government should pay

:06:05.:06:16.

half of it. What happens to overweight people are alcoholics? It

:06:17.:06:22.

can go on for ever. If you did get ill, probably yourself, because it

:06:23.:06:29.

is your own fault. If you are an over 50s smoker, your toys as likely

:06:30.:06:37.

to need social care. You will want that in nine years sooner than

:06:38.:06:38.

nonsmokers. But with Hull having one

:06:39.:06:40.

of the highest smoking in the country, medical experts warn

:06:41.:06:42.

there will be a long term cost. But worry remains

:06:43.:06:45.

about how much councils and families What do you think should be

:06:46.:06:48.

done to stop people smoking? If it the job

:06:49.:06:54.

of the Government or councils to try Who should pay for the care

:06:55.:06:57.

of ex`smokers? Should it be the councils or do

:06:58.:07:00.

smokers pay enough in taxes? Get

:07:01.:07:03.

in touch via the details on`screen. Work could start on a multi`million

:07:04.:07:21.

pound wind turbine production plant The final plans for the

:07:22.:07:25.

development were approved for the Councillors say it could encourage

:07:26.:07:33.

other companies to now invest A 29`year`old man has been arrested

:07:34.:07:36.

as part of an attempted murder Lincolnshire Police say a member

:07:37.:07:44.

of the public was hit by a car being driven dangerously

:07:45.:07:47.

in Ingoldmells last night. He was not seriously injured

:07:48.:07:50.

but officers want to hear from anyone who saw something

:07:51.:07:52.

on Sea Lane between 7:00pm The Prime Minister says he'll look

:07:53.:07:55.

at the case of a father from Hull who is trapped in Iraq

:07:56.:08:00.

after it was raised in the Commons Kristian Nicholson had

:08:01.:08:03.

his passport confiscated in the country eight months ago after his

:08:04.:08:06.

involvement in a fatal car crash. He was given

:08:07.:08:09.

a suspended sentence last week and planned to return home but he's

:08:10.:08:11.

yet to have his passport returned. I take a personal interest

:08:12.:08:17.

in each and every one of these cases to work out what we

:08:18.:08:19.

can to do help their families, bring these people home and to resolve

:08:20.:08:23.

these dreadful, complex situations. Animal welfare groups say they're

:08:24.:08:28.

struggling to cope with the number of horses abandoned

:08:29.:08:31.

and left to graze illegally More than 850 people complained to

:08:32.:08:35.

the RSPCA last year and charities say their struggling

:08:36.:08:42.

to cope with the number of horses One group has told Look North

:08:43.:08:44.

that councils need to come up with land to help people who have

:08:45.:08:48.

nowhere to house their animals. Why are more animals being

:08:49.:08:52.

left to fend for themselves? Some say this is nothing new. Horse

:08:53.:09:10.

owners told me tonight they have tethered here for more than 30 years

:09:11.:09:12.

without any problems. To the without any problems. To the

:09:13.:09:17.

untrained eye, the field behind me seems to be in good health but as

:09:18.:09:22.

the growing number of horses whose basic care needs that are not being

:09:23.:09:27.

met that other major concerns of the big welfare charities. Jubilee will

:09:28.:09:37.

soon be forced as `` fostered as a riding horse. She was tethered

:09:38.:09:41.

illegally unlink in common. This rescue centre in Lincolnshire is at

:09:42.:09:47.

full capacity. They say the number of horses is increasing. The facts

:09:48.:09:52.

prove that abandonment is on the increase. Welfare charities have no

:09:53.:10:00.

power whatsoever. It has to be done through the proper channels. Without

:10:01.:10:09.

permission, abandoning is illegal. Hull has been abandoned as a

:10:10.:10:12.

hotspot. Some say council should designate areas. The council should

:10:13.:10:18.

put aside proper land where horses are protected and the public are

:10:19.:10:23.

protected. Set aside, land and these horses can graze happily. The source

:10:24.:10:28.

had no water. During filming, her had no water. During filming, her

:10:29.:10:37.

owner arrived. I shall keep telling them because I am doing no harm as

:10:38.:10:41.

long as the council don't worry me. They have never said anything to

:10:42.:10:48.

me. The issue has sparked a debate between MP or Mac this happening. An

:10:49.:10:55.

increasing number of groups of people who cannot afford to look

:10:56.:10:59.

after their animals. Obviously the travelling community but also

:11:00.:11:03.

dealers large and small. It is multiple groups involved. Animal

:11:04.:11:10.

welfare charities say it is hard to prosecute owners. They had to cease

:11:11.:11:13.

offering before they can seize. But the hope that the debate could cause

:11:14.:11:15.

change. He was in Jill's package and earlier

:11:16.:11:16.

I spoke to Dene Stansall who is Could this change anything? Today

:11:17.:11:30.

MPs met with the travelling community. A lot of evidence was

:11:31.:11:34.

given that this is a growing problem. It has been compounded by

:11:35.:11:42.

the number of horses being bred which is spiralling. This will all

:11:43.:11:46.

go into one big report. It could be a while before we see the Government

:11:47.:11:49.

take any action. He was in Jill's package and earlier

:11:50.:11:51.

I spoke to Dene Stansall who is I asked him what he made

:11:52.:11:55.

of people who abandon their horses. They're actually breaking

:11:56.:11:59.

the law under the 2006 Animal Welfare Act because anybody who

:12:00.:12:01.

takes on a horse has a duty of care to that horse and should be looking

:12:02.:12:04.

after it throughout its life. Let's talk about the travelling

:12:05.:12:09.

community first and the flygrazing. The travelling community leave

:12:10.:12:11.

the horses on roadside verges which is dangerous

:12:12.:12:17.

for the horses and the public. Councils need to step in,

:12:18.:12:22.

rather than hand this to the RSPCA. They need to take responsibility and

:12:23.:12:25.

put aside some common land, 30 or 40 acres maybe, to allow travelling

:12:26.:12:29.

people who don't possess land to put So you want

:12:30.:12:32.

the council to give land for Land was taken away

:12:33.:12:36.

from people many years ago, With number so high at the moment,

:12:37.:12:42.

can animal charities actually cope? Animal charities are full to

:12:43.:12:49.

the rafters with unwanted horses. We need to look

:12:50.:12:54.

at how many horses are out there and stop the over`breeding of horses

:12:55.:12:57.

and stop people taking them on. If you get a horse, you must be

:12:58.:13:00.

a horse lover and animal lover. I don't think people realise what is

:13:01.:13:03.

needed when they take on a horse. I have three horses

:13:04.:13:13.

and that costs me ?9000 a year. Are some people getting horses

:13:14.:13:24.

who shouldn't have horses? Yeah, people should understand what

:13:25.:13:29.

they are committing to and when they get into problems,

:13:30.:13:32.

they want to offload the horses onto animal charities, and that's

:13:33.:13:35.

where the problem begins. In a nutshell,

:13:36.:13:37.

if you cannot afford your horse any You need to talk to animal charities

:13:38.:13:39.

and see how best you can resolve It's not about abandoning the horse,

:13:40.:13:44.

there are ways to resolve problems You think that councils should

:13:45.:14:12.

provide land for horse owners to graze their horses on? Let us know

:14:13.:14:17.

your thoughts. We meet

:14:18.:14:21.

the Lincolnshire mum who's won thousands of pounds worth of prizes

:14:22.:14:24.

by entering online competitions. It is my hobby but it borders on

:14:25.:14:36.

obsession sometimes. You can't not get addicted to getting things for

:14:37.:14:38.

free. Now let's get the weather

:14:39.:14:43.

and your pictures. This is Gateway to Alkborough,

:14:44.:14:45.

taken by Keith Drury. Now, just to warn you that

:14:46.:14:52.

if you're watching us on Freeview, some changes have been made this

:14:53.:14:56.

afternoon. Some channels are moving number,

:14:57.:14:58.

and you may find some are missing. You can get everything back to

:14:59.:15:02.

normal by retuning your TV. But if you need extra help,

:15:03.:15:04.

contact Digital UK on 03456 505050 Let's have a look at the next 24

:15:05.:15:46.

hours. Once more, a lot of fine, settled weather. All parts will be

:15:47.:15:52.

dry if cloudy. High pressure is in charge of the lot of cloud trapped

:15:53.:15:57.

underneath. That said, it brightened up across eastern part of

:15:58.:15:59.

Lincolnshire and whole, where it was Lincolnshire and whole, where it was

:16:00.:16:14.

22 Celsius. `` Hull. You can see all the sunshine. It was nice in

:16:15.:16:23.

Skegness. The cloud will melt away tonight before returning from the

:16:24.:16:27.

south`east. It may produce the odd spot of drizzle and mist heinous. It

:16:28.:16:35.

will be a mild night of 12 or 13 Celsius. Sun rises at 6:15am and the

:16:36.:16:46.

next high water is at 1:33pm `` 1:33am. It is another cloudy day,

:16:47.:16:52.

especially in the morning. Once again, we might see breaks across

:16:53.:17:03.

eastern Lincolnshire and Yorkshire. Even on cloudy areas, it should feel

:17:04.:17:08.

pretty pleasant. Scunthorpe has been cloudy today at 19 Celsius. More of

:17:09.:17:22.

the same on Friday. Subtle changes over the weekends. The cloud might

:17:23.:17:29.

thicken on Saturday to produce rain but skies should brighten nicely on

:17:30.:17:31.

Sunday. The text last night asked, is the

:17:32.:17:42.

weatherman radioactive because the other presenters are not green!

:17:43.:17:48.

In two weeks time, Scotland will decide whether it

:17:49.:17:50.

wants to break away from Britain and become an independent country.

:17:51.:17:52.

This week we've been looking at what the referendum means for

:17:53.:17:55.

Today, we look at the relationship the RAF has with

:17:56.:18:02.

Scotland and how a Yes vote could impact on Lincolnshire's RAF bases.

:18:03.:18:05.

RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire is on the front line of the defence

:18:06.:18:08.

But it's here in Scotland's Lossiemouth that its aircraft and

:18:09.:18:16.

So if Scotland votes Yes to independence, change is inevitable.

:18:17.:18:23.

In the long`running, the rest of the United Kingdom would not want a base

:18:24.:18:33.

`` to base expensive assets outside `` to base expensive assets outside

:18:34.:18:36.

of its own borders. It would look to transfer from Lossiemouth to another

:18:37.:18:42.

base in the UK. The risk would be that they would downsize the

:18:43.:18:47.

military so that they bring them back and not put them anywhere.

:18:48.:18:50.

The Scottish White Paper for independence proposes taking

:18:51.:18:52.

keeping 12 Typhoons as part of a plan to continue

:18:53.:18:54.

Currently, Scotland is home to more than 11,000 regular armed forces

:18:55.:18:58.

and 4000 Ministry of Defence civilians based at 50 MOD sites.

:18:59.:19:04.

If more RAF assets are brought into the county, that would ultimately

:19:05.:19:21.

mean more jobs for local people. It was at the positive economic effect

:19:22.:19:26.

on the county clearly. It would have an increased noise effect on the

:19:27.:19:28.

county. The future of defence has been

:19:29.:19:34.

a hot potato in this referendum debate but the Ministry of Defence

:19:35.:19:37.

says it has no contingency plans in place in the event

:19:38.:19:40.

of a Yes vote on September 18th. Well tomorrow we'll be looking

:19:41.:19:49.

at whether the Scottish referendum debate has

:19:50.:19:52.

lead to calls for more powers for I'll be speaking to Lord Prescott on

:19:53.:19:56.

this one on tomorrow's programme. Two years ago the retail expert

:19:57.:20:06.

Mary Portas told Market Rasen that it needed to sell itself

:20:07.:20:09.

and it's free parking. But now the signs that were put up

:20:10.:20:15.

to tell passers`by about the parking The county council says

:20:16.:20:19.

they're not appropriate. Shopkeepers say

:20:20.:20:22.

the move will harm business. In Market Rasen, they think free

:20:23.:20:26.

parking makes their town special. That's why it's

:20:27.:20:32.

on their welcoming signs. Mary Portas thought it was

:20:33.:20:33.

a good idea. This week, in Market Rasen, the car

:20:34.:20:36.

parks were full and drivers seem to The free parking was one of the

:20:37.:20:53.

first recommendation is to Government to make it convenient for

:20:54.:20:57.

people to come into town to shop. But you cannot declare that is in ``

:20:58.:21:03.

as an advantage, it makes it more difficult.

:21:04.:21:04.

Lincolnshire county council says "The reference to 'free parking'

:21:05.:21:07.

means this sign falls foul of the law for signs on the highway.

:21:08.:21:14.

The department say that road signs had to be clear enough for drivers

:21:15.:21:18.

to understand. But some here aren't happy

:21:19.:21:37.

the signs have to come down. It is a bit childish. I think they

:21:38.:21:48.

have other things to worry about Lake potholes rather than signs.

:21:49.:21:52.

Market Rasen town council says it is disappointed in the decision.

:21:53.:21:55.

But that it will now apply for suitable replacements.

:21:56.:22:04.

Thanks to everyone who got in touch about a suggestion on last

:22:05.:22:07.

night's programme that hospital parking charge be scrapped.

:22:08.:22:14.

Rachel says, 'I think they should scrap the parking charges.

:22:15.:22:19.

I've been in and out of hospital this past few months and

:22:20.:22:22.

the last thing I want to think about is getting money for the meters'.

:22:23.:22:27.

And Jackie says, 'I don't disagree with car parking charges, as long

:22:28.:22:30.

as that money is used for nurses, equipment and patient needs.

:22:31.:22:32.

I hope it isn't being used for pay rises for executives'.

:22:33.:22:46.

The performance will be the first of a series of shows to raise funds

It's a fantastic thing to be involved in, Jesus Christ Superstar

:23:32.:23:34.

It's nerve`wracking for me, I've never done this kind

The idea to raise funds for this beautiful building is tremendous.
