Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:00.:00:00.

The flats earmarked for demolition despite people

:00:07.:00:11.

They are not going to go to Humberston, Immingham, or W`ltham.

:00:12.:00:19.

Relatives of a woman who was stabbed to death fight to stop her

:00:20.:00:22.

The Canadian Lancaster bombdr heads home after wowing the crowds

:00:23.:00:29.

We knew it was going to be big, but not as big as it was.

:00:30.:00:34.

The crowds have been fantastic everywhere.

:00:35.:00:39.

A ladies' dance group from Lincoln are preparing to perform

:00:40.:00:43.

It will be a wet night but tomorrow will be better. Join me for the

:00:44.:00:56.

weather forecast. Hundreds of residents in six blocks

:00:57.:01:02.

of flats in Grimsby say their community will be destroyed

:01:03.:01:07.

when their homes are torn down. The high rises on East Marsh will be

:01:08.:01:10.

demolished because just over half of the people living there said

:01:11.:01:14.

they were in favour of the `ction. The Local Housing Association

:01:15.:01:18.

says it will offer alternathves to I will miss it. You will not get a

:01:19.:01:42.

view like this. A self`cont`ined penthouse apartment offering amazing

:01:43.:01:48.

views. It is easy to see whx 76`year`old Barry and his whfe were

:01:49.:01:55.

attracted to the flat. But soon the home of 15 years will be nothing

:01:56.:02:01.

more but rubble. I will miss being here. I will miss being abld to come

:02:02.:02:05.

out here when the sun is out and sit here and enjoy it. I like to see

:02:06.:02:13.

what is going on around me. I like to see what is coming up thd river.

:02:14.:02:21.

You are not going to get th`t down there. Hundreds of residents have

:02:22.:02:27.

now been told they will havd to move. Shoreline Housing Partnership

:02:28.:02:34.

says they will demolish all of the tower blocks. Even though wd were

:02:35.:02:38.

told about it months ago, it has come as a real shock. We had built

:02:39.:02:44.

up trust and relationships with the people around here. The dechsion

:02:45.:02:51.

follows a public consultation during which 52% were in favour of the

:02:52.:02:58.

move. Tenants will be rehoused. Many are angry. Where are they going to

:02:59.:03:04.

go? They are not going to go to Humberston, Immingham, or W`ltham.

:03:05.:03:08.

They want to stay in this community. It has not been decided what will

:03:09.:03:15.

happen to the space yet. New housing is a possibility. The high`rise

:03:16.:03:21.

flats are expensive to run `nd they need significant investment.

:03:22.:03:25.

Sometimes you have to make bold decisions for a long`term g`me. We

:03:26.:03:28.

tried to create a positive legacy for the organisation and for the

:03:29.:03:35.

future generations who want to live in houses managed by a houshng

:03:36.:03:39.

association like us. Although it is difficult for the current tdnants,

:03:40.:03:43.

we hope it is in the long`tdrm interest of the area. The process of

:03:44.:03:49.

moving people out of these flats and putting them into alternative

:03:50.:03:52.

accommodation will begin next week. However, it could be a numbdr of

:03:53.:03:54.

years before these buildings are demolished. We will be asking for

:03:55.:03:59.

your views in a minute. Joining me now is

:04:00.:04:01.

the chief executive of the Shoreline There is currently a shortage of

:04:02.:04:13.

accommodation. It is predicted there will be a houses lacking by this

:04:14.:04:20.

time next year. Do you think this is a problem? This is not true of every

:04:21.:04:27.

area. In some areas there is a surplus of housing. East Marsh is

:04:28.:04:33.

one of these areas. These are vulnerable people who want to stay

:04:34.:04:36.

in the community. Do you accept that it is a difficult situation?

:04:37.:04:41.

Absolutely. This decision h`s not been taken lightly. We have spent

:04:42.:04:48.

two years thinking about it. It is also been out for consultathon. We

:04:49.:04:55.

are very clear that this will have a personal impact. How will everyone

:04:56.:05:06.

be re`homed. How will that work There will be someone supporting

:05:07.:05:12.

them. We have over 1000 lettings are here that we have access to. We are

:05:13.:05:20.

talking about sex blocks of flats. In one block, the majority voted to

:05:21.:05:25.

stay. Why can they not remahn where they are? It is difficult on that

:05:26.:05:32.

kind of the state to pick and choose. We have heard from the old

:05:33.:05:35.

people that they would like us to look at providing them... However,

:05:36.:05:43.

Mike can the building that voted to remain not remain the? It whll

:05:44.:05:47.

remain a huge amount of mondy to be spent on it. Some people have been

:05:48.:05:54.

living there for years. Thex will be put out after all these years. We

:05:55.:05:59.

are very sensitive to that hssue, but you must remember that these

:06:00.:06:03.

blocks are over 50 years old. Surely something can be done? We could

:06:04.:06:10.

spend millions of pounds on the blocks, but we have to ask whether

:06:11.:06:13.

it is good value for money for the charity. The Queen `` the cleaners

:06:14.:06:23.

say that you have not been clear with them. They are risk of

:06:24.:06:31.

redundancy, that is true. I met with them yesterday. What is your message

:06:32.:06:36.

to residents who are watching tonight? We want to work with you

:06:37.:06:41.

and to provide support and legal to come up with a good solution. Thank

:06:42.:06:43.

you for joining us. Should the flats be demolished

:07:41.:07:53.

try to get the money to rebtild his life, even

:07:54.:07:57.

though the law says killers should Lisa Clay's family,

:07:58.:07:59.

who live in Lincolnshire ` where she grew`up, say they are

:08:00.:08:02.

devastated by the legal acthon. Lisa Clay, who grew up in Boston

:08:03.:08:05.

in Lincolnshire, and her son Joseph were stabbed to

:08:06.:08:08.

death in their own home They were killed by Paul Ch`dwick `

:08:09.:08:11.

Lisa's partner of 11 years He admitted manslaughter

:08:12.:08:15.

on the grounds of diminished responsibility and is currently

:08:16.:08:19.

detained in a secure unit. But now Chadwick is in court again `

:08:20.:08:22.

this time asking a judge to award Chadwick argues that Lisa Clay would

:08:23.:08:26.

have wished him to inherit the ?80,000 of her estate,

:08:27.:08:33.

as he said he was "very unwdll" The law says that those convicted

:08:34.:08:36.

of murder or manslaughter c`nnot inherit from their victims,

:08:37.:08:43.

but the rules can be modifidd in certain cases ` and that is

:08:44.:08:45.

the loophole that Chadwick hs hoping In a statement, Lisa's aunt,

:08:46.:08:48.

Greta Squires, who lives in Boston, said, "It was sickening to hear

:08:49.:08:53.

his evidence. What that man did to Lisa and Joseph

:08:54.:08:55.

was brutal. He has robbed them of a futtre

:08:56.:08:59.

and devastated our lives. And now he wants to use thehr money

:09:00.:09:01.

to improve his life and his future." The Judge will decide

:09:02.:09:07.

tomorrow whether Chadwick But Lisa and Joseph's familx say,

:09:08.:09:09.

whatever the result, the court case has been another ten

:09:10.:09:14.

months of torture for them. Keith Etherington is from Slater

:09:15.:09:16.

and Gordon Lawyers I asked him what

:09:17.:09:22.

their reaction was to her khller They were devastated to recdive the

:09:23.:09:39.

court proceedings not long `fter this terrible crime had been

:09:40.:09:45.

committed. It was not long `fter the man had been convicted. It came as a

:09:46.:09:51.

enormous shock. Most people will be thinking this is very far`fdtched.

:09:52.:10:00.

Is it possible he could win? It is not far`fetched. The law is designed

:10:01.:10:09.

to assist some types of manslaughter to allow people to bring cl`ims of

:10:10.:10:14.

this type. The law says that you cannot inherit from victims. I

:10:15.:10:18.

understand the rules can be modified, but is this one of those

:10:19.:10:23.

cases? The law can be modifhed with the judge believes that the person

:10:24.:10:29.

who committed the crime was not culpable and they did not know what

:10:30.:10:35.

they were doing at the time. And he is picking up a good case. She was

:10:36.:10:39.

clearly unwell at the time. Will that carry some weight. We say that

:10:40.:10:50.

this was a brutal crime and the rule should not be relaxed in thdse

:10:51.:10:54.

particular circumstances. It was a brutal crime against a woman and a

:10:55.:10:59.

child. In evidence yesterdax we heard that both of them werd trying

:11:00.:11:04.

to defend themselves. Do yot think that he will win? It is not

:11:05.:11:10.

impossible but we are doing our best for the family. Thank you for

:11:11.:11:17.

joining us. We will let you know what happens tomorrow.

:11:18.:11:18.

Greenpeace activists have stopped a train from carrying hundrdds of

:11:19.:11:20.

The train was on its way to Cottam Power Station `

:11:21.:11:27.

which is just south of Gainsborough ` when 50 protestors managed to

:11:28.:11:30.

Our environment correspondent, Paul Murphy, joins me now.

:11:31.:11:40.

Well, the police were called to the railway sidings near to

:11:41.:11:45.

Cottam Powr Station just before 3PM this afternoon.

:11:46.:11:47.

This is a Greenpeace protest against the damage the use of coal

:11:48.:11:52.

for power generation, which is the dirtiest of the fossil fuels.

:11:53.:11:57.

It appears to be a well org`nised, well thought out demonstrathon.

:11:58.:12:01.

Protestors brought the train to a stop using emergency sign`ls,

:12:02.:12:06.

then climbed on top using l`dders and started to unloading thd coal.

:12:07.:12:11.

They also placed a life`sizd moving polar bear at the front

:12:12.:12:14.

of the train, an attempt to make a point about global warming and

:12:15.:12:18.

Greenpeace representatives on the train say they want the use of coal

:12:19.:12:25.

And what is the reaction from the power company?

:12:26.:12:32.

Well, that company is EDF, Peter, and they run the power stathon

:12:33.:12:35.

at Cottam where this coal w`s bound for ` as well as the nearby

:12:36.:12:38.

They confirmed that action was taking place against them,

:12:39.:12:44.

but they also added that it had not interfered in any way with

:12:45.:12:47.

their sites and that both wdre continuing to operate safelx.

:12:48.:12:52.

A spokesman for British Transport Police also confirmed that they were

:12:53.:12:56.

responding to the protest, but there is no word as to any arrests so far.

:12:57.:13:05.

A 16`year`old boy has been `rrested after a teenage girl was st`bbed

:13:06.:13:08.

It happened just before 7AM this morning on Heaton Stredt.

:13:09.:13:12.

The 17`year`old girl is being treated at the Queen's Medical

:13:13.:13:15.

Two hospitals in Hull and E`st Yorkshire have been placed on "red

:13:16.:13:22.

The NHS Trust has blamed it on an "extraordinary peak" hn demand

:13:23.:13:27.

at Hull Royal Infirmary and Castle Hill Hospital ` with 3,0 0

:13:28.:13:31.

people going to their emergdncy departments in the last eight days.

:13:32.:13:38.

Rural communities in East Yorkshire are being advised to get

:13:39.:13:40.

a defibrillator and make sure they know how to use it.

:13:41.:13:43.

MP Graham Stuart says if someone suffers

:13:44.:13:46.

a heart attack it is import`nt they are treated within four minttes

:13:47.:13:49.

He has been cycling around his constituency of Beverlex and

:13:50.:13:52.

After a historic six`week vhsit that may never been repeated,

:13:53.:14:00.

the Canadian Lancaster bombdr is on its way home tonight.

:14:01.:14:04.

It has flown in dozens of displays with

:14:05.:14:07.

Today, they flew together over local airbases and Lincoln Cathedral

:14:08.:14:14.

Gemma Dawson reports from RAF Coningsby,

:14:15.:14:17.

Leaving Conningsby together for the final time ` as Ver`,

:14:18.:14:24.

Just to be on this transatl`ntic flight is historic. It is a once in

:14:25.:14:40.

a lifetime opportunity. We `ll underestimated what was going to go

:14:41.:14:43.

on. The crowds have been contrasting everywhere. `` fantastic.

:14:44.:14:47.

And once again, hundreds turned up to see this `

:14:48.:14:50.

the final chance to watch the only two airworthy Lancasters in the

:14:51.:14:52.

world flying together, alongside two Spitfires and 2 Hurricanes.

:14:53.:14:57.

It was amazing. I am so glad that I experienced it and I will ndver

:14:58.:15:04.

experience it again. It has been absolutely marvellous.

:15:05.:15:05.

In Lincoln, crowds gathered near the Cathedral to see today's send`off.

:15:06.:15:08.

But while it has not all gone to plan,

:15:09.:15:10.

Last month, thousands gathered at RAF W`ddington

:15:11.:15:13.

to see the two Lancasters flying alongside the Vulcan.

:15:14.:15:17.

Then the Lancasters flew ovdr Just Jane at East Kirkby `

:15:18.:15:21.

uniting three of these bombdrs for the first time in 50 ye`rs.

:15:22.:15:25.

And on Sunday, they were at the Derwent Dam in Derbyshire `

:15:26.:15:28.

where the Dambusters practised during the Second World War.

:15:29.:15:32.

In total, they have flown for 40 hours,

:15:33.:15:34.

And it is believed the two Lancasters have been seen

:15:35.:15:40.

Every area show that the aircraft have been to has seen record

look at this photograph Danny Stubbs The headline for tomorrow is that it

:16:32.:17:23.

will be a nice day. There m`y be some rain but that will cle`r and

:17:24.:17:35.

then skies will turn sunny. There will be a warm front on Thursday and

:17:36.:17:40.

some light rain. It should be dry. The weekend is also looking

:17:41.:17:49.

promising. Here is the cold front. This is coming into use torture and

is going southwards but it lay be heavy in places. Lowest temperatures

:18:04.:18:14.

tonight will be 11`12 Celsits. The sun will rise at 6:50am. Thdre will

:18:15.:18:26.

be some rain in the morning, but that will clear out of the way. Then

:18:27.:18:31.

sunshine will sweep across `ll parts in the morning. It will be ` lovely

:18:32.:18:37.

afternoon with only a small chance of a shower. It should feel quite

:18:38.:18:47.

pleasant with average temperatures of 16`17 Celsius. It will bd quite

:18:48.:18:55.

cloudy on Thursday with somd light rain, but otherwise it will be dry.

:18:56.:19:01.

After a damp start on Fridax it will be dry and warm. The weekend is

:19:02.:19:03.

looking dry with some sunshhne. The mayor of Louth says

:19:04.:19:30.

a law dating back 150 years could halt ASDA's plans to build

:19:31.:19:33.

the town's first big superm`rket. The mayor is taking legal action to

:19:34.:19:35.

try to prove that his office owns the land

:19:36.:19:38.

and that East Lindsey Counchl has no Here is our business correspondent,

:19:39.:19:40.

Sarah Corker. Louth is now in for a sense of

:19:41.:20:02.

identity. However, it is also been locked in a long planning dhspute.

:20:03.:20:07.

The cattle murky was sold after earlier this summer, but thd

:20:08.:20:13.

argument is not finished. They will swallow all of the markets `nd there

:20:14.:20:19.

will be empty shops everywhdre. You have to move with the times. As a

:20:20.:20:28.

customer I would like a supdrmarket. The latest twist in this dispute

:20:29.:20:34.

focuses on a legal loophole. The town council says it is signed a

:20:35.:20:38.

piece of legislation daytimd back to 1848, which could have some doubt on

:20:39.:20:49.

who owns the site. We may not be able to sell this land as it

:20:50.:20:54.

theoretically belongs to Lotth. It names the mayor as having the

:20:55.:20:58.

responsibility. Is this clutching at straws? No. We are an electdd body

:20:59.:21:05.

with the responsibility to the people Louth. It has been s`id that

:21:06.:21:12.

the livestock murky is underused and there will be a replacement. Another

:21:13.:21:17.

campaigner says that we need the supermarket to progress. We are

:21:18.:21:23.

trying to invest in the town but we keep getting objections. It is time

:21:24.:21:28.

to let Louth move followed. Weather it is a valid law or a delaxing

:21:29.:21:33.

tactic, the development is still dividing the community. Now people

:21:34.:21:40.

are appealing to the courts against the sale.

:21:41.:21:41.

They are the volunteers who quietly and patiently make sports clubs run.

:21:42.:21:44.

But they do not need to go unrecognised anymore.

:21:45.:21:46.

Nominations are open to find the unsung hero of sport for 20 4

:21:47.:21:49.

Here is a bit about it from our sports reporter, Simon Clark.

:21:50.:22:01.

For ten years, the unheralddd stars of the sports committee havd been

:22:02.:22:08.

honoured. A variety of sports have been recognised. The winds have

:22:09.:22:12.

rubbed shoulders with the sport league at the sports person`lity of

:22:13.:22:19.

the year award. Last year, this man won and he says that it is opened

:22:20.:22:25.

doors for his sport. We havd got more teams in the local are` play

:22:26.:22:28.

basketball. It has opened sdveral doors through funding. It sdems as

:22:29.:22:43.

though basketball has come to the front. The award is being b`cked by

:22:44.:22:48.

the BBC, to reach out to more community sports than ever before.

:22:49.:22:53.

We support many grassroots initiatives. Many of the people

:22:54.:22:57.

running them give up their time for free. The award is a natural fit

:22:58.:23:02.

because we wanted to say th`nk you to all of the people who give up

:23:03.:23:10.

their time for free. I hope that this has inspired you to make a

:23:11.:23:16.

nomination for 2014. The winner gets a night out in Glasgow.

:23:17.:23:22.

And to put someone forward for the award and get the tdrms

:23:23.:23:26.

and conditions, you can log onto the BBC Sport website.

:23:27.:23:28.

Nominations need to be in by the 20th of October.

:23:29.:23:34.

Hundreds of animals are being returndd to

:23:35.:23:36.

an aquarium in North Norfolk, which was badly damaged by flooding.

:23:37.:23:39.

The Hunstanton Sea Life Sanctuary has been refurbished since was hit

:23:40.:23:41.

Seals, turtles and penguins are amongst the creatures being allowed

:23:42.:23:47.

back after they were taken hn by other aquariums across the country.

:23:48.:23:56.

We have been closed for ten months and it is fantastic to start seeing

:23:57.:24:05.

the first of our animals returning this morning. It is amazing.

:24:06.:24:10.

A ladies' dance group from Lincoln are preparing to perform at

:24:11.:24:12.

The Magic Movers are helping celebrate the International Day

:24:13.:24:16.

The Magic Movers are no str`ngers to putting on a show ` here thdy are

:24:17.:24:30.

performing at the BBC's Children in Need show back in 2010.

:24:31.:24:32.

And next week they will be dancing here `

:24:33.:24:34.

the rather grand Palais des Nations, the UN's headquarters in Geneva

:24:35.:24:41.

Rehearsals are well underwax in Lincoln.

:24:42.:24:47.

We did a commercial and we `re on the intranet. I presume that is how

:24:48.:24:58.

it came about. We were cont`cted and asked if we would like to b`ll. ``

:24:59.:25:08.

would like to go. All the ilportant people will be there. It is the most

:25:09.:25:14.

exciting thing that you could imagine.

:25:15.:25:15.

Jacky first began dancing after her husband died.

:25:16.:25:17.

She has been leading the Magic Movers since 2006.

:25:18.:25:19.
