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

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?

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
