I'll have more at ten - but now on BBC One, we join

:00:00.:00:12.

Super headteachers are going to be brought into struggling

:00:13.:00:15.

We are offering some of the best headteachers to go to some of the

:00:16.:00:26.

areas that have a higher degree of challenge.

Join me for the detailed five day forecast in 15 minutes.

:00:50.:00:59.

North Lincolnshire is to be one of the first areas

:01:00.:01:01.

in the country to get a new type of "super head teacher".

:01:02.:01:04.

100 people will be chosen by the government as having

:01:05.:01:07.

the talent and leadership to help improve under performing schools.

:01:08.:01:12.

But there are concerns amongst some unions that it could just bd

:01:13.:01:15.

Summary trilled run in North Lincolnshire are not getting the

:01:16.:01:29.

quality of education they ddserve, say the government. `` some trilled

:01:30.:01:34.

run. The Minister for schools has launched a new idea he thinks will

:01:35.:01:41.

hope. We are asking the best headteachers in the country to go to

:01:42.:01:44.

areas where there is a highdr degree of challenge, work in the schools

:01:45.:01:49.

and generate a future band of leaders in those schools. North

:01:50.:01:56.

Lincolnshire will be among the first places in the country to get a share

:01:57.:02:02.

of the first 100 headteachers. How will the staff react to the

:02:03.:02:05.

government saying you are not doing a good enough job and we nedd to

:02:06.:02:10.

bring people in? I hope the staff see this as a positive step because

:02:11.:02:15.

we all need to take advice `nd guidance from people who have

:02:16.:02:19.

experience in doing other things. I think they should be happy to be

:02:20.:02:24.

educated. North Lincolnshird has been identified as needing help 57%

:02:25.:02:30.

of children in the County Court five or more GCSEs, lower than the

:02:31.:02:43.

national average. `` in the county. We need to be careful not to build a

:02:44.:02:50.

heroic model of leadership, we need people to stay there for thd

:02:51.:02:53.

long`term and build a legacx and make the other people who work in

:02:54.:02:58.

schools stronger, and have ` successor at the end of it. Heidi,

:02:59.:03:07.

the head of an Academy in Grimsby, has been identified as a potential

:03:08.:03:13.

candidate for a super headtdacher. A good leader believes every child can

:03:14.:03:15.

succeed regardless of social background. There will be pockets of

:03:16.:03:20.

variable pack is in a school and that needs to be nurtured. ``

:03:21.:03:28.

variable pockets. The candidates for the roles will go through a rigorous

:03:29.:03:32.

recruitment process. Nick Raine is from the

:03:33.:03:36.

National Union of Teachers. I asked him if he welcomes one

:03:37.:03:39.

of these "super headteachers" We would be delighted with `ny

:03:40.:03:52.

initiative that improves edtcation in Lincolnshire or any part of the

:03:53.:03:56.

country but we are not sure what a super headteacher is or what their

:03:57.:04:01.

qualifications are to lead schools. We have some wonderful teachers in

:04:02.:04:04.

Lincolnshire and Yorkshire `lready. You have said it is window dressing.

:04:05.:04:12.

Isn't bringing in a super headteacher Web GCSEs are bdlow

:04:13.:04:15.

average a good thing? You mtst be pleased. `` Web GCSEs. Schools that

:04:16.:04:26.

are working against each other we are not happy with. School teachers

:04:27.:04:30.

are leaving because of government initiatives. Some teachers have got

:04:31.:04:35.

to be better than others, that is a fact of life. Why not give the good

:04:36.:04:44.

teachers the hard schools to lead? There have been initiatives like

:04:45.:04:49.

this before and most people who become headteachers are excdllent

:04:50.:04:51.

teachers with a good record of achievement. It is much better in a

:04:52.:04:58.

local area and being monitored by someone from the local area rather

:04:59.:05:02.

than someone from Westminstdr. We do not know who these people are. We do

:05:03.:05:06.

not know yet because they h`ve not applied. You are being less than

:05:07.:05:11.

enthusiastic and that is not fair on a place like Scunthorpe which needs

:05:12.:05:15.

all the help it can get. We know there are problems with the school

:05:16.:05:21.

system at the moment, and that's problem is the change in

:05:22.:05:25.

examinations from the government. We have a government that is obsessed

:05:26.:05:28.

with school structures rathdr than the quality of teachers. Do you

:05:29.:05:35.

welcome the super headteachdrs? We do not know who they are so we

:05:36.:05:39.

cannot comment. We welcome ` qualified teacher in every class. We

:05:40.:05:45.

welcome teachers getting on and doing their jobs properly which is

:05:46.:05:48.

not happening at the moment. A pleasure to talk to you, th`nk you.

:05:49.:05:53.

We want to hear from you on this story, are these new

:05:54.:05:57.

'superheads' the answer to below average GCSE results?

:05:58.:05:59.

How else could standards be improved?

:06:00.:06:04.

Your thoughts on this one. Do contact us.

:06:05.:06:38.

The team helping to run The Floral Hall in Hornsea say the

:06:39.:06:41.

The theatre was saved from the bulldozers ` and t`ken over

:06:42.:06:45.

But money is running out ` and the Hall has to become

:06:46.:06:50.

self`sufficient by 2016 in order to secure its long`term future.

:06:51.:06:52.

Step inside the Floral Hall and you will see signs of the fight to save

:06:53.:06:58.

it from top they have got to put back any thoughts of all those is on

:06:59.:07:04.

this site! In 2012 campaign is protested against the locathon being

:07:05.:07:11.

flattened. A year after, is the whole thriving? We managed to save

:07:12.:07:17.

the Floral Hall, that was the easy bit at the difficult bit is keeping

:07:18.:07:23.

it open. It is volunteers lhke Alan who do a lot of the work around

:07:24.:07:28.

here. This is an example of the Prime Minister's big societx in

:07:29.:07:31.

action. David Cameron has bden talking about his vision of

:07:32.:07:39.

volunteers taking over local services for years. We need people

:07:40.:07:42.

to come together and work together because we are all in it together.

:07:43.:07:47.

How easy has it been to find volunteers to help run the Floral

:07:48.:07:53.

Hall? It is not easy. The shtuation in Hornsea, there are six or seven

:07:54.:07:59.

voluntary commissions and it is the same couple of dozen people who work

:08:00.:08:04.

in those industries. It is very difficult for people to comlit their

:08:05.:08:09.

own time. Parts of the commtnity are supporting the Floral Hall. This

:08:10.:08:14.

line dancing lesson was well attended and regulars tell le the

:08:15.:08:19.

cafe is often busy. Me and ly husband come quite a lot because we

:08:20.:08:23.

have the dogs and we can sit outside. Sometimes we cannot get a

:08:24.:08:27.

seat. Everything about it h`s improved since it came in local

:08:28.:08:32.

ownership. I hope they make a success of it because it wotld be a

:08:33.:08:37.

shame for it to go. The challenge is for the Floral Hall to make enough

:08:38.:08:41.

money to support itself so ht can be used by the community for another

:08:42.:08:52.

100 years. We wish everybodx well who is fighting to save the Floral

:08:53.:08:54.

Hall. Fishermen who have been stopped

:08:55.:09:04.

from fishing on the site of a planned wind farm off the

:09:05.:09:06.

Lincolnshire coast say they're still Danish company DONG Energy took out

:09:07.:09:09.

a High Court injunction to halt fishing on the Race Bank site last

:09:10.:09:13.

month while surveys take pl`ce. The 24 fishermen affected s`y

:09:14.:09:16.

they've not yet been compensated It is not about the money, ht is

:09:17.:09:22.

about being treated with a bit of respect to start with. We are

:09:23.:09:28.

dealing with the tea boy at the company. They are running after the

:09:29.:09:32.

High Court and we do not have a chance against people like that All

:09:33.:09:37.

these little pieces add up to big pieces and there will be nowhere

:09:38.:09:38.

left for us to go. Plans have been unveiled to

:09:39.:09:41.

re`develop a site in Grimsbx Under the proposals, the former

:09:42.:09:44.

Ramsden's Superstore could be Those involved say it's one

:09:45.:09:48.

of the most exciting schemes Opposition councillors in North East

:09:49.:10:31.

Lincolnshire are calling for an overhaul of the way it's structured

:10:32.:10:34.

amid claims it lacks transp`rency and is undemocratic. They s`y there

:10:35.:10:36.

aren't enough full council leetings to allow them to hold the atthority

:10:37.:10:38.

to account. Phillip Norton reports. The members of the Cabinet `re all

:10:39.:10:42.

Labour so there is no representation from any other members of the

:10:43.:10:45.

Council, and that effectively says that there is no representation on a

:10:46.:10:49.

large swathe of the populathon in the Grimsby Borough. The concerns

:10:50.:10:54.

over a lack of democracy in the council chamber are shared by Tory

:10:55.:10:58.

councillors. They have put forward their own proposal for changes

:10:59.:11:03.

although feel UKIP's propos`l would not be writes while the authority is

:11:04.:11:08.

trying to cut costs. Modern sea has been stifled recently and that is

:11:09.:11:11.

largely because it has been a reduced number of council mdetings.

:11:12.:11:19.

`` democracy has been stifldd. That is the reason for putting this

:11:20.:11:23.

motion forwards and frankly, what I am asking for is for two extra

:11:24.:11:29.

council meetings per year. North East Lincolnshire Council holds two

:11:30.:11:32.

full meetings a year, along with the AGM and budget meetings. It is the

:11:33.:11:37.

same as North Lincolnshire `nd Lincolnshire County Council. In

:11:38.:11:41.

Rosdeep Kular, it is double with eight being held over the ydar. ``

:11:42.:11:53.

Hull. There is not a right `nswer to how many times a year the council

:11:54.:11:58.

should meet. I did a quick straw poll and generally councils meet six

:11:59.:12:04.

to eight times a year. The leader of north`east Lincolnshire Council says

:12:05.:12:06.

he is open to having more mdetings but says the current system is bad.

:12:07.:12:14.

It is a socialist and communist way of doing things where everybody is

:12:15.:12:17.

treated equally, regardless of how they vote. The public vote for

:12:18.:12:24.

democracy and if the system is so good, and such an enlightendd way of

:12:25.:12:29.

doing it, can someone tell le why Ed Miliband and MPs are not sat around

:12:30.:12:33.

a Cabinet table in Downing Street? That is not the way we do politics

:12:34.:12:40.

in the UK. With strong views on all sides of the political spectrum it

:12:41.:12:44.

is down to councillors to ddcide which is best.

:12:45.:12:50.

What have north`east Lincolnshire Council said about the clails? They

:12:51.:13:02.

say they moved to the Cabindt system in 2011, following consultation to

:13:03.:13:06.

reduce the number of meetings. It points out that councillors can call

:13:07.:13:11.

for special meetings in certain circumstances and at that any two

:13:12.:13:16.

council members can call for Cabinet decisions to be scrutinised. These

:13:17.:13:20.

proposals that we have heard about will go through the next cotncil

:13:21.:13:27.

meeting at the town hall here. That is on Thursday night. Are more

:13:28.:13:36.

meetings the answer? Get in touch. Thank you for watching this

:13:37.:13:37.

Wednesday night. The man behind TV hit Downton Abbey

:13:38.:13:55.

is given an honorary doctor`te Keep the pictures and photographs

:13:56.:14:13.

coming in. This is absolutely stunning. Peter took this of the

:14:14.:14:19.

super Moon over Lincoln Cathedral last night. That is stunning.

:14:20.:14:27.

Incredible picture, Peter. @ pleasant change from the Hulber

:14:28.:14:34.

Bridge. You said that was a Geordie term, I cannot believe how lany

:14:35.:14:43.

e`mails I have got! As you light imagine, I have the weather glossary

:14:44.:14:48.

here. I do concedes in Northumberland, low cloud along the

:14:49.:14:55.

coast is referred to as... H thank you! Let's have a look at the

:14:56.:15:03.

headline for the next 24 hotrs. It is looking very pleasant but there

:15:04.:15:16.

is a variable amount of clotd. High pressure will be in charge but we

:15:17.:15:20.

may pick up more in the way of cloud from the North Sea over the next few

:15:21.:15:21.

days. Still some good sunny Breaks to be had. 21 degrees.

:15:22.:15:36.

Overnight, clear skies means there will be mist and fog and a hint of a

:15:37.:15:39.

bit Overnight, clear skies means there

:15:40.:15:39.

will be mist and fog and a hint of a bit more in the way of cloud towards

:15:40.:15:44.

the coast. Temperatures in the towns and city centres around ten or 1

:15:45.:15:48.

degrees. In rural areas, lower than that. Sunrise is at 6:27am. The next

:15:49.:16:04.

high water time... A bit of mist and fog inland. That will lift `nd break

:16:05.:16:12.

and all parts will be dry. @ bit more in the way of cloud and we have

:16:13.:16:16.

been used to but it should be bright and there will be sunshine for all

:16:17.:16:20.

of us. Let's have a look at the afternoon temperatures. We will be a

:16:21.:16:25.

couple of degrees down on where we were this afternoon so we are

:16:26.:16:29.

looking at highs of 15 in Bridlington and 18 in Lincoln.

:16:30.:16:36.

Looking further ahead, a taste of variable cloud and all parts will be

:16:37.:16:42.

dry with some sunshine. Temperatures should be very close to the

:16:43.:16:45.

long`term average for Septelber That is the forecast. I cannot

:16:46.:16:50.

believe how many messages there were on this one! It is surprising how

:16:51.:16:54.

many Geordie viewers we havd! 170 years ago the explorer

:16:55.:17:07.

Sir John Franklin from Spilsby in Lincolnshire lead two shhps

:17:08.:17:15.

in to the Arctic to try and find a lucrative short cut

:17:16.:17:18.

for trade between the Atlantic But shortly after setting off the

:17:19.:17:21.

expedition dissapeared, becoming one of the great mysteries of

:17:22.:17:35.

the age of Victorian explor`tion. Now,

:17:36.:17:38.

after years of searching and rumours over what happened to the mdn,

:17:39.:17:40.

one of the ships has been found This image shows the wreckage. It

:17:41.:17:51.

has been buried for more th`n 1 0 years and its discovery in the

:17:52.:17:57.

Arctic, thousands of miles from Lincolnshire, has made an ilpact

:17:58.:18:01.

here. At the collection, thdy have a pair of the snowshoes. An incredible

:18:02.:18:11.

Lincolnshire explorer who fought at the Battle of Trafalgar with an

:18:12.:18:15.

amazing career, before he wdnt on to Arctic exploration. He was born here

:18:16.:18:22.

in Spilsbury, the statue is a reminder of the town's famots son.

:18:23.:18:28.

He is still being commemorated and this film about Franklin was

:18:29.:18:31.

projected onto the wall herd. It is hoped this could bring more tourism.

:18:32.:18:41.

We want to work with VisitBritain to see if we can make connections with

:18:42.:18:50.

Canada and King William Isl`nds In Canada, Sir John Franklin's

:18:51.:18:54.

expedition was so important to them that there could be an opportunity

:18:55.:18:59.

for overseas tourism. The expedition less England in 1845, trying to

:19:00.:19:04.

charge the Northwest passagd through the Arctic. We were trying to find a

:19:05.:19:10.

shorter trading route through Asia. It is believed Franklin died two

:19:11.:19:14.

years later. Canadian ships have searched for the wreckage for six

:19:15.:19:20.

years but this has been a great Canadian story and mystery, it has

:19:21.:19:25.

been the subject of scientists and historians and writers and singers.

:19:26.:19:29.

It is now hoped even more c`n be discovered about what happened to

:19:30.:19:31.

the expedition crew. Earlier I spoke to Claire W`rrior

:19:32.:19:35.

from the National Maritime Luseum in Greenwich, she told me how

:19:36.:19:37.

important the discovery is. This really is a very excithng find.

:19:38.:19:46.

People have been looking for these ships for about 160 years so to

:19:47.:19:52.

actually find one of them, `nd one that looks intact, is very dxciting

:19:53.:19:58.

indeed. Why is this so important for people who know nothing abott

:19:59.:20:04.

Franklin? It was one of the biggest expeditions that the British ever

:20:05.:20:07.

sent to the Arctic that we do not know what happened to it. The men

:20:08.:20:10.

were there to search for thd Northwest passage when Brit`in felt

:20:11.:20:16.

it was for the taking. Things did not go so well and the ships got

:20:17.:20:21.

caught in the ice. John Franklin died and we do not know what happens

:20:22.:20:28.

to the rest of the expedition. There are theories that the crew, when

:20:29.:20:32.

trapped, turn to cannibalisl. Is that true? Local reports from people

:20:33.:20:38.

in the area suggested that `nd all the evidence would suggest that in

:20:39.:20:44.

desperate times, he men turned to cannibalism. What are you hoping

:20:45.:20:50.

might still be on the ship? `` the men. We are hoping there max be some

:20:51.:20:56.

evidence about what happened on the course of the expedition. There is

:20:57.:21:01.

some evidence at the Museum in Greenwich which tells us a little

:21:02.:21:07.

bit but not much. We hope to find the ship's logs if they are legible.

:21:08.:21:14.

Also, to find out about lifd on board the ship would be fascinating.

:21:15.:21:20.

Do you think it will bring tourism to Lincolnshire, there will be a lot

:21:21.:21:27.

of interest, were there? I hope so. He was Lincolnshire born and bred

:21:28.:21:31.

and there is a magnificent statue of him in Spilsbury. I hope it brings

:21:32.:21:39.

more interest. Thank you very much indeed.

:21:40.:21:43.

We've had a lot of messages on the subject of tipping.

:21:44.:21:45.

There are calls for waiters and waitresses to get

:21:46.:21:48.

The MP for Brigg and Goole Andrew Percy says bushnesses

:21:49.:21:51.

should make it clear who gets the money from service charges.

:21:52.:21:58.

Thank you for all the e`mails, texts and tweets.

:21:59.:22:07.

"Restaurants should build all their costs into the retail price

:22:08.:22:11.

Tips are voluntary and should be given to the staff depending on

"Why should customers in restaurants and cafes feel obliged to thp

A happy crew puts bums on seats because a happy customer

Lincolnshire police are seeking witnesses after three fans were

:22:32.:22:38.

arrested and a steward was hnjured at last nights Derby match between

The steward was treated for head injuries

:22:41.:22:43.

The game saw Lincoln City whn by three goals to two at Sincil Bank.

:22:44.:22:54.

The Mariners came from behind twice but the home side grabbed a winner

:22:55.:22:57.

It is one of the most successful Brithsh TV

:22:58.:23:03.

programmes with more than 100 million viewers around the world.

:23:04.:23:05.

The new series of Downton Abbey starts next weekend

:23:06.:23:07.

and today the show's creator, Lord Julian Fellowes has bedn

:23:08.:23:10.

awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of Lincoln.

:23:11.:23:12.

Having already filmed scenes in the city for the show, hd told

:23:13.:23:15.

our arts correspondent Anne`Marie Tasker he felt proud, flattdred and

:23:16.:23:17.

He has a Golden Globe and an Oscar and now he has added an honourable

:23:18.:23:42.

doctorate from the University of Lincoln. I do already love Lincoln

:23:43.:23:49.

and I already have associathons with the county with my family, but also

:23:50.:23:56.

with my career. I have seen Emily Blunt crowned Queen of Engl`nd in

:23:57.:24:03.

this very cathedral and luckless Mr Bates was locked up in Lincoln

:24:04.:24:06.

Castle while he protested hhs innocence. Known as the cre`tor of

:24:07.:24:11.

Downton Abbey he has been rdcognised for his outstanding work in film, TV

:24:12.:24:16.

and theatre. I am thrilled, proud and flattered. I will spread the

:24:17.:24:22.

word of Lincoln, whether or not that is what they have asked me to do. I

:24:23.:24:27.

like supporting new univershties, I think there is a good feeling here

:24:28.:24:31.

and a lot of enthusiasm. Thd University's hope they will benefit

:24:32.:24:41.

as well. University gets in association with people who have

:24:42.:24:44.
