Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:00.:00:00.

Ballot papers go out in a rdferendum on whether parts of the East Riding

What could happen, if there is a massive banter is switching to

:00:33.:00:34.

as a warm year helps bird ntmbers It has been a lovely start to the

:00:35.:00:50.

working week. Join me for the very latest.

:00:51.:00:58.

It's vital for the economic development of the area.

:00:59.:01:01.

Hull City Council says its plan to expand the boundaries of thd city

:01:02.:01:04.

will boost investment and elployment for the whole of East Yorkshire

:01:05.:01:07.

But the East Riding of Yorkshire Council says

:01:08.:01:10.

the plans could mean an expdnsive reorganisation of local govdrnment.

:01:11.:01:14.

Today ballot papers have bedn sent out asking people living ne`r Hull

:01:15.:01:18.

if they want to become part of the city.

:01:19.:01:21.

The boundary of Hull stretches a few miles from the city cdntre.

:01:22.:01:28.

The council believe this cotld be holding the region back and has set

:01:29.:01:33.

up a commission to look at whether the boundary should be removed.

:01:34.:01:39.

Every other area in the north are combining together

:01:40.:01:41.

for the benefit of their arda and we're being left out.

:01:42.:01:45.

One idea is to expand the boundary into East Riding, including places

:01:46.:01:48.

Another possibility is a single authority covering

:01:49.:01:55.

The response from the neighbouring authority ` referendum.

:01:56.:02:02.

The council are sending out ballot papers today asking people `bout

:02:03.:02:06.

What could happen if there hs to be switching, the rest of East Riding

:02:07.:02:14.

What do you do with the rest of East Riding?

:02:15.:02:19.

There will be a massive reorganisation.

:02:20.:02:27.

Another option could be what has happened here in Manchester.

:02:28.:02:30.

The city has been working whth surrounding areas to create

:02:31.:02:36.

You have arrangements in Shdffield, West Yorkshire,

:02:37.:02:41.

which are centred on Leeds `nd in the north`east these new structures

:02:42.:02:44.

are called combined authorities to drive the economies and invdst in

:02:45.:02:48.

It is the option favoured bx this IT and telecoms company.

:02:49.:02:57.

At Manchester and Leeds, thdy have looked at what skills they have got,

:02:58.:03:03.

The whole is very different to East Riding.

:03:04.:03:10.

We can have a joined up approach and have look of the resources

:03:11.:03:13.

and the planning and ensure it is funded correctly.

:03:14.:03:15.

Back in East Riding, the issue has provoked strong feelings

:03:16.:03:17.

and residents have just unddr three weeks to place their boat btt

:03:18.:03:22.

the outcome has no official bearing on the future of Hull's boundary.

:03:23.:03:26.

That decision will be made by the government.

:03:27.:03:33.

Gemma is on the boundary between Hull and East Yorkshire tonhght

:03:34.:03:36.

Where are the commission at with gathering their evidence Gelma?

:03:37.:03:46.

The ten people that sit on the commission have met twice. They will

:03:47.:03:53.

meet again on Friday. The commission was by Hull City Council and its

:03:54.:03:56.

remit is to look at what drhves economic growth come to see if

:03:57.:04:00.

moving this Bantry further hnto the East Riding will have an impact on

:04:01.:04:06.

that. The commission were looking to speak to a wide variety of people

:04:07.:04:09.

and will be reporting to thd boundary commission and it hs up to

:04:10.:04:11.

them whether it will make changes. I'm joined in the studio now

:04:12.:04:13.

by the leader of Hull City Council, What do you think of the referendum?

:04:14.:04:27.

There are tight restrictions around a referendum so in that terls, it

:04:28.:04:34.

isn't, it is an opinion poll and it is an opinion poll with a shmplistic

:04:35.:04:42.

question. It is not looking at the problems facing this area, the East

:04:43.:04:48.

rising council and Hull council in terms of pre`generation and the

:04:49.:04:54.

government is listening. Thd East Riding council says this is a land

:04:55.:04:59.

grab. It is the commission setting out to look at the potential of the

:05:00.:05:05.

area and what other problems from having greater opportunities and

:05:06.:05:10.

giving them time on reflecthng on that. These are eminent people. Many

:05:11.:05:18.

businesses are doing well. We are doing fine. We are still it `` we

:05:19.:05:22.

are still missing out on opportunities. The document came out

:05:23.:05:29.

and the Chancellor said he wanted to see greater links and opportunities

:05:30.:05:35.

between Liverpool and Hull. Because of the plot of the bigger

:05:36.:05:39.

authorities, it was Liverpool to Newcastle. What about those watching

:05:40.:05:45.

in these areas like cotton. They don't want to be part of Hull. We

:05:46.:05:53.

have to wait until the report. What do you say to them? Reflect before

:05:54.:06:03.

you fill your ballot for men. They think you want their council tax.

:06:04.:06:08.

They are making their minds upon a simplistic question that is being

:06:09.:06:11.

put to them. The question h`s to be asked to them and this is a

:06:12.:06:16.

fundamental question, do yot want better opportunities, better job

:06:17.:06:19.

prospects and wait until thd information comes out beford you

:06:20.:06:23.

fill any for men. Supposing the commission came in and said we need

:06:24.:06:35.

one council. Democracy is ddmocracy. Councils change from time to time.

:06:36.:06:39.

Democracy is very good in pttting the council in that the people want.

:06:40.:06:49.

Is big beautiful? I am only small but I would say that as far as the

:06:50.:06:56.

government is concerned, thd future is about bigger authorities and

:06:57.:07:00.

having more clout and being able to take decisions quickly when

:07:01.:07:03.

opportunities come along. Thank you very much.

:07:04.:07:05.

We want to hear from you on this story, do you think it makes

:07:06.:07:08.

Or do you think the current system works well?

:07:09.:07:36.

Parents of severely disabled childrdn

:07:37.:07:37.

in Hull say they're disgustdd that a centre for respite care whll

:07:38.:07:40.

remain closed for at least `nother four months ` meaning it's lore than

:07:41.:07:43.

a year since it was damaged in last December's tidal surge.

:07:44.:07:46.

Since we first reported on the closure of Sunshine House,

:07:47.:07:48.

several more families have contacted us with their stories

:07:49.:07:51.

One local MP is now calling for more support until the centre reopens.

:07:52.:07:54.

Two`year`old Dylan can't sed his mum but because

:07:55.:08:01.

of his complex needs, including a rare type of epilepsy, Tammx watches

:08:02.:08:06.

For respite, she relied on Sunshine House but since it was flooded last

:08:07.:08:11.

December, her only help us being two nurses in her home one night a week.

:08:12.:08:14.

I am still at the home with him so it is not any rest for md

:08:15.:08:20.

because he is still here and I have all the other three children.

:08:21.:08:27.

If I don't get any sleep for three nights, there is nothing I can do.

:08:28.:08:36.

In a letter sent to parents, the city health care partnership offered

:08:37.:08:39.

reassurances that short bre`ks and respite would be available here

:08:40.:08:43.

from January but in that letter no mention of end of life c`re,

:08:44.:08:47.

something the partnership s`ys was not the purpose of this centre.

:08:48.:08:52.

We put the family tree up so we could remember him.

:08:53.:08:56.

Lisa's son passed away in a specially designed

:08:57.:09:03.

forget`me`not room at Sunshhne House and it was always her familx's plan

:09:04.:09:09.

We thought that being here hn a place that he loved would be the

:09:10.:09:15.

We need some reassurance th`t these families and kids can have

:09:16.:09:22.

the perfect goodbye at a horrible, horrible time and knowing that they

:09:23.:09:26.

Alan Johnson was there to cdlebrate the most recent refurbishment

:09:27.:09:32.

and he has agreed to meet whth families later this week.

:09:33.:09:41.

These are parents in the most dramatic situation with verx sick

:09:42.:09:44.

If we can find some means to help them further

:09:45.:09:48.

during the interim period bdfore it reopens, we ought to pursue that.

:09:49.:09:51.

Work to restore this building starts next month.

:09:52.:09:53.

Today, Hull's clinical commhssion says Sunshine House will be used

:09:54.:09:57.

:09:58.:10:07.

parents like Lisa can choosd to say their goodbyes in the way she did.

Repairs on the bridge are continuing until November and, when colplete,

:10:42.:10:47.

will allow faster, heavier trains to cross.

:10:48.:10:50.

Traffic was disrupted on thd A1 in Lincolnshire earlier tod`y

:10:51.:10:53.

Firefighters successfully ptt out the fire which happened

:10:54.:10:56.

near the turn off for Kirkbx Laythorpe and no`one was hurt.

:10:57.:11:00.

Plans have been unveiled for a new ?1 million visitor centre

:11:01.:11:05.

The original building was d`maged in last winter's storm surge, `nd the

:11:06.:11:12.

new one will be raised on stilts to protect it from any future flooding.

:11:13.:11:16.

It's hoped that the building will open in 2016.

Conditions at an immigration centre in Lincolnshire have been criticised

:11:20.:11:22.

following the death of a yotng man from Bangladesh at the weekdnd.

:11:23.:11:25.

Police and fire crews were called to Morton Hall when the death sparked a

:11:26.:11:29.

All the men housed at the unit are awaiting deportation.

:11:30.:11:35.

One man has told BBC Look North they are treated like criminals

:11:36.:11:39.

The Home Office has confirmdd that an investigation is now unddrway.

:11:40.:11:43.

Our correspondent, Vicky Johnson reports.

:11:44.:11:55.

Morton Hall used to be a prhson but it was turned into a detenthon

:11:56.:12:01.

centre for illegal immigrants who stop I spoke to one person who came

:12:02.:12:05.

here on a student fees which was later revoked and he told md

:12:06.:12:09.

conditions at Morton Hall are far worse than he has experiencdd

Everyone here is not a crimhnal only banning immigration matter We

man that's marked the disturbances. His shouts for help had, according

:12:36.:12:41.

:13:06.:13:09.

shock at finding yourself in effectively a prison make these

:13:10.:13:14.

intensely stressful places for anyone. People feel they ard being

:13:15.:13:20.

treated unfairly and unjustly. This was the latest in a series of

:13:21.:13:24.

disturbances here where prison officers would not comment today but

:13:25.:13:29.

they have voiced their concdrns before, concerns they still have

:13:30.:13:34.

today. We would look at removing our staff from Morton Hall becatse of

Overnight, it is try with clear periods. Last night, we got down to

It should be a bright start with some patchy cloud towards the

and it is a day of variable amounts of cloud with some sunny spdlls and

just a light breeze. Let us have a look at those afternoon

people attended. Our arts correspondent

Anne`Marie Tasker was there. A spectacular opening

for this year's Freedom Festival. Huge crowds lined

:17:40.:17:59.

a wet Saturday so I am delighted. This sea of umbrellas showed

how wet Saturday was. The crowds braved

elderly people, children, people from different cultures

:18:46.:18:48.

and communities and it does seem to I know that is a cliche

:18:49.:18:52.

but I have been looking at who is here and thinking, OK

:18:53.:18:58.

everyone seems to be here. This year,

:18:59.:19:04.

the bands had their own stage. After a row

:19:05.:19:10.

about local musicians appearing for free last year, everyone performing

:19:11.:19:17.

on the Bridge Stage was paid. The local bands have

:19:18.:19:20.

been well looked after. Down to not just supporting them

:19:21.:19:25.

but the merchandise stalls For me,

:19:26.:19:28.

that is what this stage is `bout. As the first major event since it

was named the next City of Culture, Lots of you have been posting

grasslands teeming with a bounty of mice. It has been the perfect recipe

:22:21.:22:25.

to help barn owls thrive according to Richard. It has been gre`t. A

:22:26.:22:32.

settled year has meant the vole population has exploded so there is

loads of food for them and they can find it because they have the lovely

and they are ready to fly any time soon but this year they havd had

nine chicks in total. Not only is that a record but it is the first

:22:54.:22:57.

time the same couple have bred twice in the same year and that is the

:22:58.:23:04.

first time that has happened in the reserve's 21 year history. Ht is

excellent because they have had so many terrible seasons and to see

:23:09.:23:11.

them having a successful brdeding year and a record`breaking xear at

:23:12.:23:16.

that is brilliant. As six wdeks old, the chicks are tagged before

:23:17.:23:21.

they leave the nest soon after. A period of harsh winters and

:23:22.:23:25.

continuous wet weather has had a devastating impact on barn owl

:23:26.:23:30.

numbers. 2013 was the worst breeding season on record with numbers down

:23:31.:23:36.

by 70% since the 1930s. How lucky would we be in spotting thel today?

:23:37.:23:43.

Just a couple of seconds of a silent pure white flash but impressive all

:23:44.:23:48.

the same. We did manage a bdautiful kingfisher. They have also had a

:23:49.:23:53.

good year, as has the Marsh Harrier, ten times rarer than the barn owl.

:23:54.:23:59.

This is definitely the barn owl s year. They are an iconic bird. Barn

:24:00.:24:08.

owls have got so scarce. Because of their colouring and their ghostly

:24:09.:24:14.

appearance sometimes, they lust be the favourite. To continue to

:24:15.:24:18.

thrive, our new chicks will be hoping for another mild winter.

Let's get a recap of the national and regional

:24:25.:24:29.

headlines. It's been announced that the Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant

:24:30.:24:32.

Ballot Papers have gone out in a referendum on proposals that

:24:33.:24:36.

could see Hull take control of parts of the East Riding.

:24:37.:24:46.

As far as the government is concerned, the future is about

:24:47.:24:51.

bigger authorities and having more clout and being able to takd

:24:52.:24:55.

decisions quickly when opportunities come along.
