A Lincolnshire man is vowing to return to Thailand to clear

:00:07.:00:10.

Andy Hall from Spalding has been working in the country

:00:11.:00:13.

for the last ten years and hs now waiting to hear the verdict

:00:14.:00:17.

He's also facing further legal proceedings

:00:18.:00:23.

after criticising working conditions in Thailand's pineapple indtstry.

:00:24.:00:26.

The human rights activist is currently visiting his parents

:00:27.:00:28.

in Lincolnshire, but has told Look North he'll return

:00:29.:00:31.

to Thailand to continue fighting for the rights of migrants.

:00:32.:00:36.

Back home with his parents, Andy is enjoying a short break in Spalding,

:00:37.:00:44.

but his work in Thailand has placed him at the centre of both criminal

:00:45.:00:48.

It is challenging times, but to look at it positivelx, I

:00:49.:00:54.

think the case has created ` lot of international interest and ht has

:00:55.:00:59.

raised the profile of abuses against migrant workers in Thailand.

:01:00.:01:04.

Earlier this month, Andy appeared in court in B`ngkok

:01:05.:01:08.

A second case is due to start tomorrow after

:01:09.:01:13.

alleged poor working condithons at a company owned by this lan.

:01:14.:01:20.

TRANSLATION: This is for the future

:01:21.:01:23.

of my company, so I ask, is that important?

:01:24.:01:26.

Today I am fighting my case, that is all.

:01:27.:01:31.

Back in Spalding, Andy has received support

:01:32.:01:33.

He's now vowing to return to Thailand, but his family know

:01:34.:01:37.

if he loses his cases, he could face a lengthy prison sentence.

:01:38.:01:42.

I have got butterflies in my tummy all the time.

:01:43.:01:47.

Would you prefer Andy just to stay here and leave it all behind?

:01:48.:01:52.

We would love for him to be home, but it is his life and that is what

:01:53.:02:00.

Andy's family will now have to wait six weeks before finding out if he

:02:01.:02:08.

will be jailed, but with further criminal and civil proceedings,

:02:09.:02:11.

Hospital officials have tridd to address concerns about plans to

:02:12.:02:21.

build more than 100 new homds on land next to

:02:22.:02:24.

the Diana Princess of Wales Hospital in Grimsbx.

:02:25.:02:28.

An application has been madd for planning permission to build

:02:29.:02:30.

104 houses in the Scartho Road area of thd town.

:02:31.:02:35.

Local residents have been invited to take part in a consultation

:02:36.:02:37.

I think they need to come and have a look at the plans.

:02:38.:02:43.

I certainly think the area we are looking at,

:02:44.:02:46.

it would be a significant improvement to this area.

:02:47.:02:52.

We are also submitting detahled accessibility surveys as part of

:02:53.:02:55.

our work, so that we are addressing the concerns that residents may

:02:56.:02:58.

have around the increased transport within the area.

:02:59.:03:01.

There's been more success for local athletes on the fhnal day

:03:02.:03:06.

Lincolnshire's Micky Yule took gold in the powerlifting and Hull's Craig

:03:07.:03:13.

Gadd was in the Great Britahn Squad, which won the sitting vollexball

:03:14.:03:15.

gold following a win against the USA in this afternoon's final.

:03:16.:03:18.

This was the moment when Great Britain's sitting volleyball

:03:19.:03:24.

Craig Gadd, seen here wearing the number six, has had a busy weekend.

:03:25.:03:31.

He finished just outside thd medals in the cycling yesterday, btt today

:03:32.:03:34.

There was also success for Lincolnshire's Micky Yule.

:03:35.:03:40.

He was head and shoulders above the competition as he took

:03:41.:03:43.

The event for injured servicemen and women was the idea of

:03:44.:03:47.

Prince Harry and has receivdd a visit from Prime Minister.

:03:48.:03:50.

Giving people the opportunity to compete, to have pride

:03:51.:03:54.

in what they do, to be part of a team, I think it means a huge amount

:03:55.:03:58.

Competitors such as Sam Stocks, who won the 400m, will head home

:03:59.:04:04.

tomorrow, and can expect a great reception from friends and family.

:04:05.:04:07.

It is the best thing that h`s happened in a long time for us.

:04:08.:04:13.

It is an inspiration to us and hopefully to Great Brit`in.

:04:14.:04:20.

Thousands of spectators havd attended the games and it is

:04:21.:04:23.

hoped it will now become a regular feature on the sporting caldndar.

:04:24.:04:27.

In football, Scunthorpe United remain in the relegation zone

:04:28.:04:31.

following a heavy defeat at Chesterfield yesterday.The

Iron took the lead at the start of the second half through Paddy

:04:37.:04:40.

Madden, but the home side took control thanks to a hat`trick from

:04:41.:04:43.

In rugby league, Hull Kingston Rovers ended the

:04:44.:04:48.

Omari Caro scored three of their eight tries as the Robins

:04:49.:04:55.

It means that they finish in ninth place in the Super League t`ble

:04:56.:05:01.

Through this evening, across East Yorkshire and

:05:02.:05:09.

Lincolnshire, it will stay dry, but as we head overnight, thickdr cloud

:05:10.:05:13.

starts to push in, turning things misty, with hill fog and patchy

:05:14.:05:16.

It will be a mild night, with temperatures at about 14 Celsius,

:05:17.:05:21.

with a gentle north`easterly bredze.

:05:22.:05:24.

A gloomy start for tomorrow morning, cloudy and damp in places.

:05:25.:05:27.

It will get brighter gradually, with cloud breaking

:05:28.:05:31.

for some sunny spells, but `lso the risk of some isolated showers.

:05:32.:05:34.

Temperatures tomorrow are bdtter than today, reaching 19 Celsius

On Tuesday, it will again bd a cloudy day, but it will break up.

showers on Wednesday, temperatures around 19 or 20 Celsius.

:05:48.:05:53.

That is it from us for now, but we are back at 10:20pm. Goodbyd for

:05:54.:05:57.

now. Still, some clear spells in western

:05:58.:06:30.

areas. If you spot stepping into single figures but foremost, it will

not be a cold night. It a rather murky and grey start to Monday.

:06:34.:06:41.

Still, the far north-east of England, into eastern Scotland,
