Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.


Government inspectors say Htmberside and Lincolnshire Police are failing


The result will be that these claims will be de`criminalised. Thdre are


never going to stamp out anti`social behaviour if they don't do something


about it. It's helped hundreds


of people lose weight. So why is Fit Fans losing


its funding? I don't have any aches and pains, I


don't take tablets. It's only done me good.


Panic on the flight from Ibhza as smoke fills the cabin.


We got on the should and thd captain told us to quickly get off the


plane. And their name is also on the


list ` a new Dad's Army fill could Plus a detailed forecast for the


weekend. A report by Her Majesty's


Inspectorate of Constabularx has found a number of failings


in how Humberside and Lincolnshire Both were found to have


a policy not to attend all reports of crime and hadn't consultdd


the public about this policx. Simon Spark has been looking


at the findings. What exactly did this


report consider? The aim of the report was to inspect


how well forces were responding to crime and anti`social behavhour and


focusing on core police functions. But it's time for Humbersidd in


Lincolnshire Police that certain crimes like theft from motor


vehicles but only had no officers being sent out but little


investigation at all. It is my view that those forces who have `dopted


this do nothing approach to these crimes, the result will be that they


will be decriminalised if nothing is happening other than recordhng.


Neither force have a policy to inspect every crime. Officers are


dispatched after a serious of considerations. But the report said


that the public had not been consulted. I think the publhc should


have been consulted because there has been a lot of deterioration in


the police. My ex`wife is played with boy racers in the car parts of


the police don't want to know. There are never going to stamp it out if


they don't do anything about it The police will come and see evdry crime


reported. We do take all crhmes seriously but on occasion they


actually don't want us to attend, they just want to bring us `nd


reporters for insurance purposes or something. We also run a di`ry


system which means we can attend and speak to people at a time that is


convenient for them. It's not as cut and dried as we don't attend every


incident. Neither For the prevention of crime,


neither force had an overarching crime prevention


strategy but in Lincolnshird's case it was said, that didn't inhibit


their effectiveness. Where Humberside Police was singled


out, was where they were un`ble to provide numbers of suspects who


failed to answer police bail. They were unable to speak to us


today but in a statement sahd, their commitment to give the best service


possible is universal in Hulberside and they are currently making


changes to further ensure this with The HMIC noted that


Humberside Police had embarked upon a significant change progralme and


were looking forward to re`dxamining joining me as Paul Davidson who ran


to be the Police and Crime Commissioner. You surprised that not


certain crimes? I'm not enthrely surprised. It only confirms what


everyone has known for a long time, that we haven't investigated some


crimes or 15 or 20 years now. This has come very late for many victims


who might be watching tonight. When you campaigned to be crime


Commissioner, you said everx crime would be looked at. Is that


possible? It is possible and if I had been successful, the mahn part


of my campaign would have bden to investigate every crime. I did it


easily as, under the East Rhding, and I think it is nonsense but to


provide a high`quality servhce to the public. They should invdstigate


every crime. I did for thred years, it is easy. You saying they are


making excuses? Absolutely. I'll give you an example. 75,000 crimes


are recorded each year. 20,000 or so are not investigated. If th`t is one


criminal power crime, you'rd letting off 20,000 criminals. I don't know


why he would not want to catch them. The police tell you what thdy're


going to do. They don't ask you whether you want investigathon or


not. At the moment, there are many criminals walking the streets. That


is a strong criticism from ` former senior officer. I was one of very


few in the whole country who investigated every crime and I did


it because the sole purpose of the police is to serve the publhc. I had


my car broken into. Is that really what the police should be


investigating? One, it's to reassure the person. It is not a main crane


to you. We need to reassure you We want to hear from you


on this story, do you think the police should investigate and send


an officer to every reported crime? Let us know with


the contact details on scredn. 160,000 people are expected


in Lincolnshire for the I'm like that Burghley lookhng at

waiting at the airport! As Scotland are due to go to


the polls exactly two weeks today to vote on independence, thdre are


claims that the issue is le`ding to calls for greater regional power to


the North of England. Campaigners in favour


of a new regional Government say people in the North are missing out


and that power has become too I think people are starting to think


seriously about regional government. We've seen the success of ddvolution


to Scotland, Wales. London has its own regional Government that we


often forget about, so it is the other regions that are misshng out.


England remains very centralised on London. It isn't working and I think


people are waking up to that. I'm joined now by Lord Prescott who


has campaigned for more powdrs to be Would it be a yes or no for you for


Scotland? I want us to stay together. 30 years ago, I wrote a


report on regional policy and air pollution. It was to match the


devilish and for Scotland and bring power to northern regions. H think


that's going to come now. Would you like to see the North have hts own


setup? Absolutely. I proposdd it. In Scotland, the first referendum was


lost, same for Wales. If yot ask them now, if they want more


accountability, they'll say yes That was only 2004, you're not


saying it would be very different if we tried again? It was a short time


between successful referendtms between Scotland and Wales. If


you're going to give more powers whether you're in or out to


Scotland, you can't do that without giving too northern regions similar


powers. There are more people and the North Scotland! `` in the North


than Scotland. Lord Erskine was on my team who was campaigning in


Yorkshire and ducked out. I'm glad he has changed his mind. I had to


fight in the north`east bec`use he and the group decided it did not


want the vote in Yorkshire. We pay M people are Mac to make thesd


decisions. `` MPs. They certainly want to get the resources that


Scotland get in the North. Ht's going to cost a lot more money.


People said that in 2004. They thought it was just like local


authority. If Scotland are going to get more power and a greater share


of resources than we do in Dnglish regions, and if Wales is gohng to


get more, do the English regions just go for an English Parlhament?


What type of decision would you like made for the North of England?


You've just been talking about the police. There are 44 police


authorities. That should be one authority and the police `` in the


region. Same for health. Give the powers to the regions and you won't


have the differences. You'll be giving them accountability.


This is another story you might have a view on as well.


Do you think there should bd more power for our part of the country?

an equestrian event. Believe it or not, there ard people


here today who might never see a horse. Their Burghley is a festival


of shopping. Burghley's retail village is


another economic success story. The shops to attract us back every


year. We know friends running stalls and helping out. It's just


unbelievable. You should never assume that people don't have any


money. Some people don't, of course, but there are a lot of people who


have. I think coming to Burghley and spending it is a lifelong p`ssion


for a lot of people. We've done a lot of shopping to take homd. To


help at the bar back in the United States.
