but it'll be turning quite breezy. Thank you very much. That's it.

:00:00.:00:12.

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

:00:13.:00:17.

A call for more money from fuel duty to be spent fixing potholes.

:00:18.:00:23.

All of these taxes and it ndver goes back into the road is being done.

:00:24.:00:30.

Seven teachers are suspended at an East Yorkshire school over the

:00:31.:00:32.

I'm live in Killingholme, where the go`ahead has just been

:00:33.:00:37.

given for a new power station to supply a million homes.

:00:38.:00:39.

Hull City manager Steve Bruce says he doesn't believe

:00:40.:00:41.

What he did on transferred deadline day is not the actions of a man who

:00:42.:00:53.

wants to sell a football cltb. And the streets of Lincoln `re

:00:54.:00:56.

filled with people from the past, And after a pleasant week a decent

:00:57.:01:10.

weekend to come. I will be back later in the details. `` later in

:01:11.:01:19.

the programme with all of the details.

:01:20.:01:26.

Motorists in East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire are backing

:01:27.:01:28.

a plan for more of the monex raised from petrol and fuel duty to go

:01:29.:01:32.

?2 billion is used to repair potholes and improve roads

:01:33.:01:35.

but the Local Government Association wants much more to be spent.

:01:36.:01:38.

Hull City Council says it ndeds an extra ?4 million

:01:39.:01:40.

Lincolnshire county council says it faces a backlog of repairs.

:01:41.:01:48.

Avoiding cracks and holes on our weather`beaten roads.

:01:49.:01:54.

The legacy of severe winters and now a backlog of repairs.

:01:55.:01:57.

Motorists say they already pay a lot of tax and deserve ro`ds fit

:01:58.:02:00.

Those at the pumps in the East Riding told me they get poor

:02:01.:02:06.

Road tax, fuel tax, MOT, evdrything else, and it never goes back into

:02:07.:02:19.

the road is being done. I h`ve had my card an in twice. When they do it

:02:20.:02:25.

they only do budget repairs. Fuel duty contributes more than ?33

:02:26.:02:27.

billion a year to the UK Trdasury. Two billion of that is spent

:02:28.:02:30.

maintaining the road network. The Local Government Associ`tion

:02:31.:02:32.

says that's not enough. It wants 2 pence a litre

:02:33.:02:34.

of fuel duty to be used soldly to maintain the network `

:02:35.:02:38.

an extra ?1 billion a year. An idea which

:02:39.:02:44.

a recent survey found some of the highest support for in Yorkshire,

:02:45.:02:46.

85% of people backing the plan. Drivers will be astonished to learn

:02:47.:02:57.

how much money they contribtte to the Chancellor each year, not just

:02:58.:03:03.

in fuel duty but also vehicle excise duty and VAT. We need a bigger

:03:04.:03:14.

amount of that spent on the road network. Councils in our arda have

:03:15.:03:19.

been given an extra ?9 millhon for repairs of the road network.

:03:20.:03:24.

That could mean `` that shotld mean 150,000 potholes will be filled in.

:03:25.:03:27.

Yet Lincolnshire County Counciol still faces a repair backlog

:03:28.:03:30.

Those who drive for a living say motoring costs are adding up.

:03:31.:03:37.

Motoring is expensive, the vehicles, suspension, tyres. Going ovdr a poor

:03:38.:03:46.

surface it is `` it stands to reason that you will need repairs.

:03:47.:03:48.

Councils want more money, btt billions have been spent on repairs.

:03:49.:03:51.

And the government isn't kedn on ring`fencing money

:03:52.:03:53.

Do you think more needs to be given to councils to sort out out roads?

:03:54.:03:59.

Should the money raised by taxes on drivers be spent solely

:04:00.:04:01.

Are there any patches of potholes near to you that need fixing?

:04:02.:04:27.

The first sailing cobles for years have been launched in Lincolnshire.

:04:28.:04:47.

Three people have died in a head on collision on a road in Lincolnshire.

:04:48.:04:51.

A 70`year`old man and a 19` and 21`year`old were killed in the crash

:04:52.:04:54.

last night, and two other pdople are in hospital with serious injuries.

:04:55.:04:57.

It happened on the A52 near Chapel St Leonards. The Polhce say

:04:58.:05:00.

It is always bad that peopld are dying on the roads and we always

:05:01.:05:07.

hope the numbers will be lower than the previous year but on thhs

:05:08.:05:12.

occasion in one fell swoop three people died in one incident, and

:05:13.:05:14.

that is tragic . A human rights activist

:05:15.:05:22.

from Lincolnshire, facing trial in Thailand, has returned to Britain.

:05:23.:05:25.

Andy Hall from Spalding was charged with criminal defamation

:05:26.:05:26.

after criticising working conditions in Thailand's pineapple picking

:05:27.:05:27.

industry. He has to go back later this

:05:28.:05:31.

month and could be jailed for up to seven years if found guilty.

:05:32.:05:33.

A new power station will be built in North Lincolnshire.

:05:34.:05:38.

The government has approved plans for a gas`powered station at

:05:39.:05:40.

It will be able to power one million homes.

:05:41.:05:46.

Kate Sweeting is at the planned site.

:05:47.:05:47.

How important could this be to North Lincolnshire?

:05:48.:05:53.

Approval for the power stathon came from the Secretary of State for

:05:54.:05:58.

energy and the change earlidr today. Not only will it be able to power a

:05:59.:06:03.

million homes it will provide 1 00 construction jobs and a further 140

:06:04.:06:11.

permanent local jobs once fhnished. This is already an industri`l site,

:06:12.:06:16.

there are two gas power stations adjacent, with two oil refinery is

:06:17.:06:21.

not far away, and the company behind this told me one of the reasons they

:06:22.:06:26.

chose this area was because of the infrastructure and transport links.

:06:27.:06:31.

With this development we will be creating a large number of jobs

:06:32.:06:35.

both during construction of the plant, when we need up to 1600

:06:36.:06:41.

people, but also in the longer term, during operation. We requird up to

:06:42.:06:49.

140 people directly employed. North Lincolnshire Council has told us it

:06:50.:06:54.

is too soon to comment on this announcement. The power station will

:06:55.:07:01.

not be operational until at least 2016/2017 but building work could

:07:02.:07:02.

start as early as next year. Hull City say they're now going to

:07:03.:07:10.

appeal to the Football Association over plans to change the cltb's name

:07:11.:07:12.

to the Hull Tigers. They were going to go through the Court of

:07:13.:07:16.

Arbitration for Sport, but have reversed that decision. Thex expect

:07:17.:07:19.

a decision to be made by thd end of November. Yesterday Assem Allam told

:07:20.:07:22.

me he would sell the club if he I worked in a

:07:23.:07:25.

legal and you are You would sell it? Yes, I s`id that

:07:26.:07:40.

before. I do not call bluffs. I said, if the decision is no, I walk

:07:41.:07:47.

out. If you won in arbitrathon three months later you could be khcking

:07:48.:07:52.

yourself then. Why? Because you could have kept the club and got

:07:53.:07:55.

what you wanted. Hull City's manager Steve Bruce held

:07:56.:08:00.

his weekly press conference this morning. He said that he dodsn't

:08:01.:08:03.

believe the club's owner wants to You only had to see what he did on

:08:04.:08:13.

transfer deadline day, thesd are not the actions of a man who once to

:08:14.:08:17.

sell a football club. If he feels that strongly about the brand and

:08:18.:08:23.

the name change to help us go forward, that is his person`l

:08:24.:08:29.

belief. We have to respect that for what he has done.

:08:30.:08:35.

There's been a big reaction from you to Mr Allam's comments yestdrday.

:08:36.:08:39.

Earlier I spoke to Peter Ch`rlish, who is a lecturer in sports law

:08:40.:09:20.

I began by asking him what he thought of the decision to

:09:21.:09:23.

appeal to the Football Association over the planned name changd.

:09:24.:09:30.

I think it is very sensible. It is a logical decision, rather prddictable

:09:31.:09:40.

but I think it is sensible. Is it likely, or have they been other

:09:41.:09:44.

cases where a change has bedn made when they go to appeal after any ``

:09:45.:09:50.

and an initial decision by the FA? With regard to a change of name I

:09:51.:09:55.

have not been aware of any decisions that have gone before the [email protected] before.

:09:56.:10:00.

It is possible that the appdal will overturn the original decishon. It

:10:01.:10:06.

all depends, I guess, on thd strength of the submissions made by

:10:07.:10:10.

the parties and also on the strength of the original decision. They are

:10:11.:10:17.

well on in getting on with this behind the series `` the scdnes and

:10:18.:10:28.

the manager is a clever man, so do you think he can win this? H think

:10:29.:10:36.

it will be very difficult. @ssuming there is no brand`new evidence he is

:10:37.:10:41.

presenting to the appeal. Hd is a very clever man, he wouldn't say

:10:42.:10:46.

that publicly yesterday unldss he was sure, would he? I have no doubt

:10:47.:10:52.

he is a clever man but he also is not going to say publicly, H am not

:10:53.:10:56.

particularly confident. Do xou think he is going to get his own way? I

:10:57.:11:03.

would be surprised if the ddcision made his `` went his way.

:11:04.:11:17.

What do you think of the move and the appeal? We asked last nhght but

:11:18.:11:24.

if you want to comment again these are the details.

:11:25.:11:38.

The first sailing cobles for years have been launched in Lincolnshire.

:11:39.:11:44.

And the future and the past collide on the streets of Lhncoln.

:11:45.:12:00.

Matthew Phillips has taken this from Drypool Bridge looking down the

:12:01.:12:03.

River Hull towards the tidal barrier and the new footbridge.

:12:04.:12:05.

"Please could Peter wish my daughter Lily good luck, as she leavds home

:12:06.:12:09.

Good luck, Lily. Where were you on Saturday when I

:12:10.:12:23.

was at the festival? I could not any `` I was thdre but I

:12:24.:12:30.

could not get anywhere near you for the hordes of Keeley Donovan fans.

:12:31.:12:40.

It looks like a nice weekend. We have had a very pleasant wedk but

:12:41.:12:42.

every morning we have had a bit of mist and fog in places, which will

:12:43.:12:46.

be the case on Saturday and Sunday as well. On the pressure ch`rt you

:12:47.:12:52.

can see the high pressure, so we are still dominated by that, me`ning a

:12:53.:12:59.

lot of settled weather to come through the weekend and into early

:13:00.:13:03.

next week. The cloud did brdak up gradually through the day so we have

:13:04.:13:08.

had some sunny spells, the best in parts of Lincolnshire. This evening

:13:09.:13:12.

and overnight the cloud will remain broken and dry. We will havd cloud

:13:13.:13:17.

breaks and because of the breeze we will have some mist and low cloud.

:13:18.:13:30.

The sun will rise at 6:30am, setting at 70 `` at 7:23pm. Tomorrow

:13:31.:13:37.

morning, a bit of a grave start in places, some patchy mist and ground

:13:38.:13:47.

fog. `` a grey start. Temperature is very similar to today's valtes,

:13:48.:13:52.

reaching the high teens, about where they should be for this timd of

:13:53.:13:58.

year. We might just clip 19 around the wash. `` the Wash. On Stnday we

:13:59.:14:08.

start with a lot of cloud, perhaps something `` some patchy mist and

:14:09.:14:13.

fog as well. It will gradually brighten up and by the afternoon the

:14:14.:14:17.

cloud should be broken and there should be some bright or sunny

:14:18.:14:22.

spells. Temperatures about `verage for the time of year, 17 or 18. High

:14:23.:14:27.

pressure continues to domin`te in the next week but I think wd will

:14:28.:14:33.

gradually see a breakdown and the increased risk of showers for Monday

:14:34.:14:41.

and Tuesday. We have a message here, how do you

:14:42.:14:48.

join the Keeley Donovan Fanclub You are the head of that Fanclub.

:14:49.:14:51.

That was from Matthew. Seven teachers at an East Yorkshire

:14:52.:15:06.

school have been suspended following claims pupils' work was

:15:07.:15:08.

falsified during an exam. Governors at the Goole High School

:15:09.:15:10.

are to investigate. The teachers have been interviewed

:15:11.:15:12.

and a report will be given to The Department for Education says

:15:13.:15:15.

it's aware of the investigation Seven members of staff suspdnded, an

:15:16.:15:28.

investigation into falsified exam entries under way. Goole High School

:15:29.:15:34.

was placed in special measures last year and is now facing allegations

:15:35.:15:41.

that a computer studies exal was manipulated. The Wakefield city

:15:42.:15:44.

academies trust that took over the school last year has confirled it is

:15:45.:15:46.

looking into it. This afternoon parents were angry

:15:47.:16:10.

and told me they had concerns about is `` about teaching standards.

:16:11.:16:14.

Absolutely disgusting, and ht is about time that they actually did

:16:15.:16:20.

reorganise the school because the teaching is abominable. The school

:16:21.:16:26.

has been going down for quite a while from what it used to be. I

:16:27.:16:33.

think there has been bad management. My daughter is 16, she has just done

:16:34.:16:40.

her exams, and as far as I `m aware there has not been any cheating She

:16:41.:16:44.

has done really well, had loads of help from the school and I don't

:16:45.:16:48.

have anything bad to say about them. How much help teachers give their

:16:49.:16:53.

pupils with exams and coursdwork is a concern for the government. It is

:16:54.:16:59.

another week before the report when the findings of the investigation

:17:00.:17:05.

are delivered. Regardless of whether there is any basis for the

:17:06.:17:09.

allegations, nationwide there is an increase in cases where teachers are

:17:10.:17:16.

accused of helping their pupils One third of pupils who responddd to one

:17:17.:17:24.

questionnaire say they have experienced this. The fact that the

:17:25.:17:30.

trust has acted quickly and swiftly is to be commended. I hope they

:17:31.:17:35.

conclude the report quickly because we do not need a dark cloud hanging,

:17:36.:17:42.

we need this finalised very quickly. If it is true of course appropriate

:17:43.:17:46.

action can be taken. The suspended staff members have been intdrviewed

:17:47.:17:51.

and a report will be presented to the trust next week. The Department

:17:52.:17:55.

for Education says it is aw`re of the allegations.

:17:56.:18:03.

We will continue to follow that if there are any developments next

:18:04.:18:05.

week. A Scunthorpe`born businessm`n is

:18:06.:18:08.

campaigning for Scotland to become independent

:18:09.:18:09.

in next week's referendum. Andy Lythgoe claims

:18:10.:18:11.

his adopted home country wotld be Scotland is my home now and has been

:18:12.:18:25.

for 25 years and I am interdsted in Scotland, my country, performing

:18:26.:18:30.

better economically. All of the studies that I have seen through my

:18:31.:18:36.

working life show that Scotland could and should be doing bdtter

:18:37.:18:37.

than it is. The Scottish independence rdferendum

:18:38.:18:40.

will be discussed in the first programme of a new

:18:41.:18:41.

series of the Sunday Politics. Guests include the East Yorkshire

:18:42.:18:44.

based UKIP MEP Jane Collins. Hull FC's Richard Horne will make

:18:45.:18:47.

his final appearance for thd Black and Whites this evening,

:18:48.:19:18.

after 16 years at the club, He made his debut when he w`s just

:19:19.:19:21.

16 years old and his colleagues have paid their tribute to the former

:19:22.:19:25.

Great Britain international. It will be great if he can roll back

:19:26.:19:31.

the years to put in an occasion like has done for some any years.

:19:32.:19:32.

We wish Richard all of the best Lincolnshire archer Carl Harding has

:19:33.:20:24.

just missed out on a medal Mr Harding from Bourne was beaten in

:20:25.:20:26.

the Bronze Medal match by another Two identical 26 foot sailing cobles

:20:27.:20:30.

` the first to be built in almost 40 years ` have bden

:20:31.:20:35.

launched today in Bridlington. With their flat bottoms and high

:20:36.:20:39.

sides, the harbour was once home to Two brand`new cobles

:20:40.:20:42.

for Bridlington. The boats were once

:20:43.:20:51.

a common sight at the harbotr ` a staple for inshore fishing all

:20:52.:20:54.

along the north east coast. Building these two has been

:20:55.:20:58.

a labour of love for John Clarkson It started off with one piece of

:20:59.:21:13.

wood and it is like a jigsaw puzzle, you keep going! It has never been

:21:14.:21:18.

documented as such and we w`nted to document it so we could makd a video

:21:19.:21:25.

and a booklet on it so we could produce it, because it has not been

:21:26.:21:31.

done before. They are a supdr shape and to go out and find trees the

:21:32.:21:38.

right shape, get all the bits and pieces you need, and when you finish

:21:39.:21:42.

them and you drop them in the water and they float, it is great

:21:43.:21:44.

The men were also behind the restoration of the

:21:45.:21:47.

First built in Bridlington lore than a hundred years ago, it

:21:48.:21:51.

She's now on the national register of historic ships.

:21:52.:22:01.

The new boats alongside the old one proved popular.

:22:02.:22:09.

I have watched these two behng constructed over the past fdw months

:22:10.:22:13.

and it is something we will not see again, a skill that has been lost

:22:14.:22:17.

forever. It is amazing to think they have

:22:18.:22:20.

been handmade using traditional materials, it is brilliant.

:22:21.:22:29.

Then came the moment everyone had been waiting for, the first of the

:22:30.:22:39.

cobles was placed in the water. Reminders of the past very luch at

:22:40.:22:41.

home in Bridlington water. Big day for cricket, becausd

:22:42.:22:46.

Yorkshire have won their first The title was sealed with a game to

:22:47.:22:49.

spare following their victory over We have waited a little while for

:22:50.:23:02.

this, it is a special time for the club and I am sure we will `ll enjoy

:23:03.:23:08.

it. It is my special time ott for my wedding anniversary. It would have

:23:09.:23:12.

been a nail`biting afternoon if it had gone on a bit that, yeah,

:23:13.:23:16.

fantastic . Imagine if our modern world

:23:17.:23:20.

of cars and computers was still being made with Victorian tdchnology

:23:21.:23:23.

like clockwork and steam power. That's what enthusiasts will be

:23:24.:23:25.

doing in Lincoln this weekend. They might look like they'rd in

:23:26.:23:28.

Victorian costume, but look closely and you'll see lots of modern

:23:29.:23:30.

upgrades, as Simon Spark explains. What happens when our everyday

:23:31.:23:40.

modern society embraces Victorian values but then makes it punk. You

:23:41.:23:48.

get the Lincolnshire steamptnk Festival and it is like another era

:23:49.:23:54.

has invaded. I thought it w`s a mad Max Convention! I think it hs

:23:55.:24:00.

fabulous and next year I might have to join them. It is basically very

:24:01.:24:12.

modern, very contemporary v`lues, but all of that creativity `nd

:24:13.:24:19.

imagination, but we draw masses of inspiration from the past,

:24:20.:24:27.

particularly Victorian era. Usually steam punk ladies dress in black and

:24:28.:24:37.

brown but I like to be a bird of paradise. This is just a maverick

:24:38.:24:45.

nerve gun that has been painted An eyepiece for detecting magic storms,

:24:46.:24:49.

clearly, and my pocket watch just to tell the time. If you want to dress

:24:50.:24:55.

like steampunk you basicallx have to dress like your grandmother did Or

:24:56.:25:03.

more like her grandmother! This is the mad Hatter's tea party, an

:25:04.:25:07.

icebreaker where everybody gets to know each other a bit better. I feel

:25:08.:25:17.

seriously underdressed. This festival is the largest of its

:25:18.:25:23.

kind in Europe and its spectacle continues throughout the wedkend, so

:25:24.:25:30.

don't be surprised to see G`ngs Of New York type stand`offs. You don't

:25:31.:25:37.

need to dress up to be part of the fun but to be quite honest ht would

:25:38.:25:41.

help. The main headlines tonight. The

:25:42.:25:48.

Reverend Ian Paisley, for ddcades the voice of hardline unionhsm in

:25:49.:25:52.

Northern Ireland, has died. Seven teachers are suspended at

:25:53.:25:58.

Goole High School over the falsification of exams.

:25:59.:26:04.

Mostly dry and sunny over the weekend, temperatures up to 18

:26:05.:26:11.

Celsius. We were talking about potholes at

:26:12.:26:14.

the start of the programme `nd whether money from fuel dutx should

:26:15.:26:20.
