The flats earmarked for demolition despite people

The Canadian Lancaster bombdr heads home after wowing the crowds


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


The crowds have been fantastic everywhere.


A ladies' dance group from Lincoln are preparing to perform


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


weather forecast. Hundreds of residents in six blocks


of flats in Grimsby say their community will be destroyed


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


demolished because just over half of the people living there said


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


moving people out of these flats and putting them into alternative


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


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


your views in a minute. Joining me now is


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


you for joining us. Should the flats be demolished


when there is a housing shortage and Or do you agree with Shorelhne that


they are too costly to maintain Contact us using the details


on screen. Could the planned supermarkdt

and their six`year`old son will find out in the morning if he can


inherit half of her ?80,000 estate. Paul Chadwick has gone to court to


try to get the money to rebtild his life, even


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


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


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


in Lincolnshire, and her son Joseph were stabbed to


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


Lisa's partner of 11 years He admitted manslaughter


on the grounds of diminished responsibility and is currently


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


his evidence. What that man did to Lisa and Joseph


was brutal. He has robbed them of a futtre


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


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


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


whatever the result, the court case has been another ten


months of torture for them. Keith Etherington is from Slater


and Gordon Lawyers I asked him what


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


court proceedings not long `fter this terrible crime had been


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

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


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

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


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


it promises a wet night in Dast Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. The rain


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


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


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


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

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


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


try to prove that his office owns the land


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


Sarah Corker. Louth is now in for a sense of


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


are appealing to the courts against the sale.


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

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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


We support many grassroots initiatives. Many of the people


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


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


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


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


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


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


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