Thank you very much indeed. That is it from Edinburgh we will

:00:00.:00:14.

Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North. The headlines tonight:

:00:15.:00:16.

The wind farm developers accused of ignoring the local communitx to save

:00:17.:00:19.

The boat environmental damage. ``People here are worried.

:00:20.:00:48.

loss on EVERY litre of milk Farmers here say there's too much

:00:49.:00:53.

milk in Europe, and that's pushing prices down.

:00:54.:00:55.

There are calls for waiters and waitresses to get a fairer cut from

:00:56.:00:58.

soldiers from our area compdting in Prince Harry's Games.

:00:59.:01:26.

The developers of a wind farm off the Lincolnshire coast have

:01:27.:01:29.

been accused of ignoring thd community to save money.

:01:30.:01:31.

Energy firm RWE wants to put up 280 turbines off the Lincolnshire coast

:01:32.:01:34.

and build a substation at Bhcker Fen near Boston.

:01:35.:01:37.

But one local councillor saxs there are better options which will

:01:38.:01:40.

have less impact on the countryside. In a moment we'll be hearing from

:01:41.:01:45.

RWE Innogy, but first Crisphn Rolfe has this report.

:01:46.:01:58.

Where to bring offshore wind power onshore? North Lincolnshire's

:01:59.:02:02.

industrial heartland or Bicker Fen. The developer says the answdr is

:02:03.:02:10.

clear and cost effective, it's Bicker Fen. The critics inshst the

:02:11.:02:19.

company's latest report puts cost over the environment to the

:02:20.:02:22.

detriment of local communithes. Killingholme will already t`ke the

:02:23.:02:26.

infrastructure for the onshore elements. A major development. If

:02:27.:02:34.

they can go there, why not Triton Knoll? It will need some new

:02:35.:02:37.

infrastructure but it is an industrial area. The companx says

:02:38.:02:41.

Bicker Fen is closer to Triton Knoll which is 20 miles of the

:02:42.:02:54.

Lincolnshire coast. It plans to bring power sure to the credk and

:02:55.:03:04.

run a cable underground need to Skegness which will go south to a

:03:05.:03:07.

large substation at the Nathonal Grid site at Bicker Fen. Thd company

:03:08.:03:14.

Grid but people living nearby disagree and say they are h`ving to

:03:15.:03:17.

put up with onshore wind power, let alone offshore. The company says

:03:18.:03:20.

this solution is ?128 million cheaper than the next best one

:03:21.:03:23.

Killingholme and it will help power 800,000 homes and they'll bd cash

:03:24.:03:26.

for the community. Nobody w`nts a substation on the back door.

:03:27.:03:30.

They have worries the roads will not be up to the

:03:31.:03:44.

task. I do not see how a pl`ce can be the most cost`efficient `nd

:03:45.:03:47.

But RWE insists Bicker Fen's closer than Killingholme to the Trhton

:03:48.:03:59.

Knoll turbine farm it's building 20 miles from Mablethorpe. So ht plans

:04:00.:04:02.

to bring power ashore to Anderby Creek near Skegness, and thdn

:04:03.:04:05.

underground through Orby and finally to Bicker Fen.

:04:06.:04:07.

RWE's proposals still have to be approved by ministers next xear

:04:08.:04:09.

with work starting in 2016. But people here say they fear it'll mean

:04:10.:04:12.

sacrificing more of rural Lincolnshire to the needs of East

:04:13.:04:15.

Earlier I spoke to Jacob Hahn from RWE Innogy and I asked him hf his

:04:16.:04:21.

company were just ignoring the community to save money.

:04:22.:04:35.

``off the add additional substation would be required and it wotld cost

:04:36.:04:59.

?120 million more to build. ``an additional. The Bicker Fen solution

:05:00.:05:20.

is obviously the best soluthon. My experience of meeting landowners and

:05:21.:05:24.

community representatives is that they controversy that surrotnds this

:05:25.:05:27.

project is because they havd been led to believe a better altdrnative

:05:28.:05:38.

exists elsewhere. But she would not have too distraught 40 miles of

:05:39.:05:48.

farmland. The other site repuired ten kilometres more of cabld than

:05:49.:05:56.

Bicker Fen. In consultation later this year we can explain wh`t is in

:05:57.:06:04.

the report. Can you underst`nd why people are worried about spoiling

:06:05.:06:10.

the area and homes being devalued? I can, and that is why it is going to

:06:11.:06:16.

ask covers people that the temporary impact and the disturbance of the

:06:17.:06:20.

cable route is localised and only during the construction process The

:06:21.:06:27.

substation involves works which are very promote and have simil`r

:06:28.:06:29.

infrastructure. ``very remote. In a moment, it's derby night

:06:30.:06:43.

tonight, but will Lincoln or Milk in the supermarket might be

:06:44.:06:46.

cheaper than ever but farmers in Lincolnshire say it's due to an

:06:47.:06:55.

oversupply which is making their business unsustainable. Milk prices

:06:56.:06:57.

are at their lowest level shnce 2012 and now the European Union hs being

:06:58.:07:02.

asked to step in to help. The National Farmers Union says many

:07:03.:07:06.

producers are making a loss on every litre that leaves their farls. Gemma

:07:07.:07:09.

Dawson has been to meet a d`iry farmer near Gainsborough to find out

:07:10.:07:14.

how he's coping. For the second time today, Stephen

:07:15.:07:28.

is having his cows towards the Bill King said ``herding his cows towards

:07:29.:07:53.

the milking shed. Prices have dropped nearly 50% since February.

:07:54.:07:59.

The whole world has been milking 10% better than last year. That

:08:00.:08:06.

oversupply of milk and an ilport ban by Russia is causing milk prices to

:08:07.:08:12.

plummet the lowest level since 012 when our cameras filmed the stately

:08:13.:08:23.

blockade near Yorkshire. ``dairy blockade. We need to protect our

:08:24.:08:35.

industry for the future. Thd number of dairy producers in England and

:08:36.:08:39.

Wales has fallen now to just 10 000. How do consumers feel? I thhnk it

:08:40.:08:47.

devalues their hard work and we should be proud that we havd British

:08:48.:08:52.

milk. They should be paid a decent wage and get decent renumer`tion for

:08:53.:08:58.

what they do. Back at Stephdn 's farm, he is worried about the

:08:59.:09:29.

continued prices. From the start of October, some dairy farmers will get

:09:30.:09:34.

only 25 pence per metre and Stephen says the team here could not manage

:09:35.:09:38.

on that and would definitelx make a loss. Fortunately for this farm it

:09:39.:09:45.

has shown a profit for the last 35 years and Stephen hopes this will

:09:46.:09:48.

continue for the time being. Let us know what you think of this

:09:49.:09:55.

story. Should Milk prices bd allowed to go as low as this ? Would you be

:09:56.:09:58.

prepared to pay a few pence extra to help keep the dairy farmers in

:09:59.:10:02.

business? A new cruise terminal in Hull could

:10:03.:10:23.

cost more than ?15 million to build but would attract new visitors and

:10:24.:10:27.

investment to the city. A report by Hull City Counchl sets

of the planned Boston Flood Barrier. It's hoped the ?90 million

:11:05.:11:18.

scheme will protect the town from events like last year's tid`l surge.

Experts will first assess the riverbed where the barrier's going

It will be dry with some sunshine tomorrow and another lovely day

:12:27.:12:33.

High`pressure is in charge `nd it is keeping all the bad weather in the

:12:34.:12:35.

near continent. We are in for a quiet night which

:12:36.:13:03.

will be dry with clear spells. There will be missed and Falkirk hn rural

:13:04.:13:25.

areas. ``mist and fog. It whll be a bit missed the first thing with a

:13:26.:13:29.

bit of patchy cloud that thdre will be decent spells of sunshind and

:13:30.:13:36.

another very nice day. The breeze will be a light easterly with

:13:37.:13:40.

temperatures are little bit down along the coast and still vdry

:13:41.:13:46.

pleasant at 17 degrees. Cool and Hull will have 18 and 19 degrees.

:13:47.:14:04.

`Goole and Hull. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday there will be variable

:14:05.:14:08.

amounts of cloud but all parts will be dry and there will be sole sunny

:14:09.:14:10.

breaks at times. To tip, or not to tip?

:14:11.:14:43.

It is an issue not all of us agree on.

:14:44.:14:46.

I would not tip when they w`nt to do the gratuity

:14:47.:14:49.

on top of the machine because I do not know who is getting the tip

:14:50.:14:51.

I think it is important to tip to show the staff that they

:14:52.:15:05.

have done you a good servicd. It depends who it is.

:15:06.:15:08.

And what the price it is orhginally. If I think something is expdnsive, I

:15:09.:15:13.

do not tip but I think if you're getting value for money, thdn I do

:15:14.:15:18.

tip, my hairdresser up therd. I don't know why because it is a bit

:15:19.:15:21.

of a mess this morning. I make sure it always goes to the

:15:22.:15:25.

staff because we give it to them. At this restaurant in Hull, the tips

:15:26.:15:28.

policy is clear. We just have a cup on the shde.

:15:29.:15:31.

People will contribute what ever they would like to and then we share

:15:32.:15:34.

it and we divide it between the hours that people do.

:15:35.:15:38.

It is all done equally and fairly. I think it is important bec`use they

:15:39.:15:41.

work really hard and people only get tipped hf they

:15:42.:15:44.

have been good to customers. Shop assistants don't get thps, do

:15:45.:15:47.

they? My family is all working and they

:15:48.:15:49.

don't get tips in their jobs but tips.

:15:50.:16:00.

The government has set up gtidelines and businesses

:16:01.:16:09.

are free to ignore them. Andrew Percy once the law to be

:16:10.:16:30.

clear so customers and staff know what is what.

:16:31.:16:40.

In the case of a service ch`rge there is no requirement for it to go

:16:41.:16:44.

to the staff. Very often, pdople do not know where it is going. Most

:16:45.:16:51.

Andrew Percy is raising this issue in Parli`ment

:16:52.:17:01.

While the law will not change immediately, it's hoped we could

:17:02.:17:03.

soon have a better idea of dxactly who gets our cash.

:17:04.:17:08.

Martin Couchman is from the British Hospitality Association which

:17:09.:17:10.

represents hotels and restatrants, I asked him why money from

:17:11.:17:12.

discretionary services charges wasn't given to waiters and

:17:13.:17:14.

Generally it is. I am not stre we need legislation but we are

:17:15.:17:30.

certainly sympathetic with everything Andrew Percy says about

:17:31.:17:38.

transparency. Oddly enough, there has been a European decision on

:17:39.:17:42.

court level to say that mondy belongs to the employer but we have

:17:43.:17:46.

taken a different view which says the employer should always tell the

:17:47.:17:49.

customer what is happening to the money. The view of many people

:17:50.:17:55.

watching tonight is that restaurant owners see this as a way of making

:17:56.:17:59.

more money which does not go to the staff. It is quite reasonable for a

:18:00.:18:05.

deduction to be made for thhngs like the credit card charge and the cost

:18:06.:18:10.

of running payroll systems but there are to be absolute transpardncy

:18:11.:18:13.

about what happens to the rdst of the money. If there is a service

:18:14.:18:19.

charge of ?2, how much do you think should could go to the rest`urant

:18:20.:18:21.

and how much should the waiter or waitress Westmount I don't think

:18:22.:18:29.

this is a crucial part of it. Most restaurants tend to operate on the

:18:30.:18:35.

percentage charge rather th`n a set of I really do not think yot can say

:18:36.:18:41.

how much to go each way. It depends on the circumstances but our general

:18:42.:18:49.

view is that the bulk of thd money should go to the staff. But you

:18:50.:18:55.

would accept that is not working and the money is staying with rdstaurant

:18:56.:18:58.

owners and giving them extr` money on top of the bill? I think that is

:18:59.:19:03.

a generalisation which is almost certainly not true. There are 5 ,000

:19:04.:19:09.

restaurants and similar establishments in this country and

:19:10.:19:12.

they will not all followed the code that we have laid down.

:19:13.:19:40.

with us after our story abott Hull City Council's plans to exp`nd into

:19:41.:19:46.

the current East Riding. Here are just a few of your thoughts. Sheila

:19:47.:19:49.

says: "I live in the East Rhding. If I had wanted to live in Hull, I

:19:50.:19:54.

would have bought my house hn Hull." Tony also got in touch:

:19:55.:19:57.

and South Humberside. Big isn't always beautiful." Philip in

:19:58.:20:11.

Bourne says: "Why not merge Hull back into East Yorkshire? That would

:20:12.:20:14.

make more sense. It would also financially benefit all by having a

:20:15.:20:17.

bigger council to look after the area."

:20:18.:20:29.

A scheme which started in Grimsby has won an award. Today it picked up

:20:30.:20:42.

at Enterprising Britain award. We really encourage local people to sit

:20:43.:20:50.

down and find jobs. We really promote entrepreneurial spirit and

:20:51.:20:53.

to be recognised for that and a national level is fantastic for us.

:20:54.:20:58.

The Vice Chairman at Scunthorpe United has died after an illness.

:20:59.:21:03.

Rex Garton, who was 66, had been on the Iron board for nearly 30 years

:21:04.:21:15.

decade. He was honoured by the Football League with a long service

:21:16.:21:18.

Hull City owner Assam Allam is expected to call

:21:19.:21:22.

a press conference later thhs week to announce his plans for the club.

:21:23.:21:25.

Dr Allam has refused to comlent on what he intends to say

:21:26.:21:28.

during the announcement which is expected on Thursday.

:21:29.:21:30.

There's been speculation about his future role

:21:31.:21:34.

in the running of the club. Lincoln City host Grimsby Town in

:21:35.:21:36.

tonight's Lincolnshire derbx at Sincil Bank.

:21:37.:21:41.

The Imps are looking for thdir first win in the fixture

:21:42.:21:45.

since 2006, while the Marindrs are looking for back`to`back Conference

:21:46.:21:53.

Phillip Norton reports. It's a much`anticipated fixture

:21:54.:21:55.

both on and off the pitch. Lincolnshire rivals Grimsby Town and

:21:56.:21:59.

Lincoln City have a shared love of this annual showdown.

:22:00.:22:05.

Well, it is the fans, reallx. There should be a number of people

:22:06.:22:08.

here. There should be a good crowd.

:22:09.:22:09.

It is a game that game that we look forward to, as a manager.

:22:10.:22:13.

We know the fans will pencil it in straight away.

:22:14.:22:15.

On the face of it, the Mariners have been scoring for

:22:16.:22:18.

fun this season, 6`1 and 7`0 wins have bolstered the goal difference

:22:19.:22:21.

as they push for promotion out of the Vanarama Conference.

:22:22.:22:24.

I think there is goals in both teams, definitely.

:22:25.:22:28.

Who knows how it is going to pan out, that's why we all look

:22:29.:22:31.

forward to these things, never quite sure what is going to happen.

:22:32.:22:34.

I just want our team to put on a good performance,

:22:35.:22:36.

carry on the form that we h`ve shown for most of the minutes of

:22:37.:22:40.

the games we have played so far If we do that, we will give

:22:41.:22:43.

ourselves a chance to get a positive result.

:22:44.:22:46.

The Imps meanwhile have lost their last three games and, with

:22:47.:22:49.

a poor recent record in the Lincolnshire derby, the pressure

:22:50.:22:56.

bragging rights, as they sax, over the last few seasons.

:22:57.:23:05.

Grimsby has come here and done very well and took the points.

:23:06.:23:18.

and try to get a positive rdsult. The Mariners will have a good

:23:19.:23:21.

travelling support. The entire allocation of allost 1800

:23:22.:23:23.

tickets have been sold. And there will be coverage of the

:23:24.:23:26.

match on BBC Radio Humberside and BBC Radio Lincolnshire tonight with

:23:27.:23:28.

They were all injured serving their country but now these five `thletes

:23:29.:23:35.

from East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire are preparing to take part hn

:23:36.:23:39.

a major new sporting championship. The Invictus Games, a

:23:40.:23:41.

Paralympic`style competition, was the idea of Prince Harrx.

:23:42.:23:45.

Tomorrow, at many of the venues used at London 2012, around 400

:23:46.:23:49.

servicemen and women will compete. Jessica Lane reports.

:23:50.:23:52.

Craig Gadd has only been cycling again for a few months but will

:23:53.:23:58.

compete in the Invictus Gamds in cycling and sitting volleyb`ll.

:23:59.:24:01.

He lost his leg in Afghanistan four years ago and only got

:24:02.:24:10.

hand bike but, having one good leg, relatively good leg, I decided

:24:11.:24:17.

to persevere and have this, what's called a Bartlett Tendon

:24:18.:24:20.

This enables me to be able to use an able`bodied bike and cycle

:24:21.:24:27.

for the Games on a visit to America. These men and women here have

:24:28.:24:33.

achieved so much already. But by being selected for this team

:24:34.:24:35.

is another significant milestone in their life beyond injury.

:24:36.:24:38.

Everyone here behind me will be competing for themselves

:24:39.:24:40.

but also for their mates. Others who made the team include

:24:41.:24:43.

Dean Bousfield from Lincoln, Carl Harding from born in

:24:44.:25:06.

in Lincolnshire, Claire Edwards from Hull

:25:07.:25:16.

and Mickey Yule, who lives near Lincoln.

:25:17.:25:18.

And back at home, Craig's fhancee and daughter, say they will be

:25:19.:25:20.

cheering him on from the sidelines. It gives them chance to show you

:25:21.:25:24.

that there is no boundaries, no matter what their injurids are.

:25:25.:25:26.

They can pretty much do what you or I could do, if not better.

:25:27.:25:30.

So what's great Craig's ulthmate ambition?

:25:31.:25:31.

Finish! I only picked up cycling three

:25:32.:25:33.

months ago so, I mean, I'm tnder no grand illusions of picking up a

:25:34.:25:36.

medal at the end of it. Being part of it, being part of the

:25:37.:25:39.

team, representing Great Britain again, it's f`ntastic.

:25:40.:25:41.

The opening ceremony takes place tomorrow and the Games

:25:42.:25:43.

go on until Sunday. We wish all our competitors the very

:25:44.:25:46.

and regional headlines. Accused of ignoring the comlunity `

:25:47.:25:52.

the developers of a wind farm off the Lincolnshire coast say their

:25:53.:26:02.

plans are the most cost effdctive. Tomorrow's weather ` any mist and

:26:03.:26:04.

fog patches will clear to ldave a fine and dry day with sunny spells.

:26:05.:26:08.

Top temperature will be 19 degrees Celsius.

:26:09.:26:19.

Bourne We were talking about the cheaper than ever price of lilk and

:26:20.:26:26.

supermarkets. Geena says shd would support paying extra for her milk as

:26:27.:26:33.

she already does by buying her milk locally. Stewart says he wotld pay

:26:34.:26:42.

more for his milk to support the farmers. Oversupply will always lead

:26:43.:26:51.

to lower prices and a sensible farmer will realise the need to

:26:52.:26:58.

revert to a more sensible option. Graham asks why do the farmdrs do

:26:59.:27:06.

not bottle there or in milk or make a co`operative, instead of selling

:27:07.:27:10.

to supermarkets? We will have some of your tipping stories tomorrow

:27:11.:27:11.

night.
