That's all from the team here at Westminster.

Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:08.:00:09.

Taking on the big banks ` campaigners fight to save the only

:00:10.:00:15.

To be perfectly frank, I thhnk it is tantamount to killing the vhllage.

:00:16.:00:21.

People come into the villagd, or the town, to use the bank facilhties.

:00:22.:00:27.

A speeding driver who ran over and killed a teenager is jahled

:00:28.:00:31.

Fears the destructive plant known as Japanese Knotweed could have

:00:32.:00:36.

I did not realise how bad it was ` especially, affecting house prices.

:00:37.:00:44.

It is indestructible, it can come up through foundations, and it

:00:45.:00:48.

And, we meet the dancer frol Hull returning to

:00:49.:00:56.

After a cloudy start a cloudy start it brightens up nicely. I whll have

:00:57.:01:09.

the forecast later in the programme. People in East Yorkshire

:01:10.:01:17.

and Lincolnshire are taking on the big banks over plans to close

:01:18.:01:21.

more branches. NatWest

:01:22.:01:24.

and Barclays are being crithcised The banks say customers are

:01:25.:01:26.

increasingly doing their banking online using mobile phones `nd no

:01:27.:01:31.

longer rely on their local branch. But many older people

:01:32.:01:36.

and businesses say they are being Our rural affairs correspondent

:01:37.:01:41.

Paul Murphy, has been to Market Weighton in East Yorkshire

:01:42.:01:44.

and Kirton in Lincolnshire, where It is not often that the villagers

:01:45.:02:04.

take to the streets. But thd loss of their last remaining bank h`s raised

:02:05.:02:09.

hackles. It will leave this community with only cashpoint and a

:02:10.:02:15.

post office. It is vital for us So many of us cannot walk and we are

:02:16.:02:23.

not well. John uses a computer but he says that he also needs to visit

:02:24.:02:28.

the bank to pay in cash. He is fearful about its departure. I think

:02:29.:02:34.

it is tantamount to killing the village. People coming to the

:02:35.:02:39.

village to use the bank fachlities. When they had parked, there is free

:02:40.:02:46.

parking, they can also use the local shops. In Albania, 12 communities

:02:47.:02:57.

have lost all of their banks. `` in our area. Soon there will bd no bank

:02:58.:03:07.

here either. Barclays has confirmed that it will pull out beford

:03:08.:03:12.

Christmas. It is a centre for the villages around. If they ard not

:03:13.:03:15.

with the come here to do thdir banking, they are going to go to

:03:16.:03:20.

another town and spend their money there. The bank said that they are

:03:21.:03:23.

having to make commercial ddcisions due to the movement towards online

:03:24.:03:29.

banking. That is despite thdir public commitments to areas that

:03:30.:03:34.

suffer bank closures. We will continue to provide banking

:03:35.:03:37.

services, even when we are the last back in town. The bank says that the

:03:38.:03:43.

number of people using the branches has Bollinger magically. Here, they

:03:44.:03:48.

are making arrangements with the local post office so that pdople can

:03:49.:03:51.

continue to make financial transactions. Community say that

:03:52.:03:58.

what they really want is for `` cuties say what they really want is

:03:59.:04:01.

for banks to consider the ilpact of the closures.

:04:02.:04:05.

Both Natwest and Barclays s`y customers can use a Post Office for

:04:06.:04:08.

everyday services, but, according to the Campaign for Community Banking

:04:09.:04:10.

Services, there is no offichal agreement in place between banks and

:04:11.:04:13.

the Post Office and transactions for businesses will take longer

:04:14.:04:15.

Earlier, I spoke to Rob Watts from the British Bankers' Associ`tion `

:04:16.:04:18.

I started by asking him whether he thought the banks were

:04:19.:04:24.

They shouldn't, because that is how they lose customers. No bank was to

:04:25.:04:38.

close branches and the reason that they are doing it is becausd

:04:39.:04:41.

transactions are falling very quickly, much faster than they

:04:42.:04:46.

thought that they would. Anx of the major banks will tell Butchdr 's

:04:47.:04:49.

actions are falling by around 1 % every year. In some branches it is

:04:50.:04:53.

more than that. It is happening for a range of reasons. One reason is

:04:54.:04:58.

that people are using technology to bank using their mobile phones,

:04:59.:05:06.

computer, or tablet. We know that, but one branches to close rdad the

:05:07.:05:12.

nearest branch is 25 miles `way There was a protest today. The banks

:05:13.:05:21.

are ignoring the community. It is a real problem. It is important to

:05:22.:05:28.

remember that increasingly xou can bank in your post office. There are

:05:29.:05:35.

thousands of people watching the programme tonight who have never

:05:36.:05:38.

been able to bank in their local village, because there's never been

:05:39.:05:42.

a bank. However, because thd banks have done these deals with. This is,

:05:43.:05:46.

they can no bank there. That argument does not wash with the

:05:47.:05:54.

people who are watching. Yot are making adverts saying that xou

:05:55.:05:57.

provide helpful banking, but it is not helpful today. Everyone knows

:05:58.:06:06.

about the post offices, but they are also closing down. Also, yot cannot

:06:07.:06:10.

do everything in a post offhce that you can do in a bank. There will be

:06:11.:06:14.

many people watching your programme tonight you do not know that they

:06:15.:06:17.

can bank in their village or town. They have never had a bank there

:06:18.:06:24.

before. But now they can bank there. If you run a business, you cannot

:06:25.:06:28.

turn up to peer in a lot of money at a post office. If we were vdry

:06:29.:06:38.

honest, have the small bank branches had their day? I do not think so.

:06:39.:06:46.

Roughly speaking, the number of branches have half in the l`st 5

:06:47.:06:53.

years. `` how have to. At the end of the day, you want to keep your bank

:06:54.:07:04.

branches open. My question hs, well all be branches eventually close? I

:07:05.:07:13.

do not think so. It is something that your competitors do not have.

:07:14.:07:21.

If you are bank, you have any advantage by keeping branchds open.

:07:22.:07:30.

Thank you for having the back for being on the programme tonight ``

thank you for being on the programme tonight.

:07:36.:07:37.

Should banks have any duty to stay open, especially if they ard

:07:38.:07:40.

Or are they right to close them if they are hardly used?

A speeding driver with a defective car who knocked down and killed a

:07:59.:08:02.

teenage boy from North Lincolnshire has been jailed for six years.

:08:03.:08:05.

15`year`old Koen Allwood, from Barton, died in hospit`l last

:08:06.:08:08.

November after being hit by a car as he walked his friend homd.

:08:09.:08:13.

Damien Benson, who is 23, was driving a defective car

:08:14.:08:19.

and later commented about the incident on Facebook.

:08:20.:08:25.

Our reporter, Gemma Dawson, was at Grimsby Crown Court this

:08:26.:08:28.

It was here that Koen Allwood and his girlfriend were hit by ` car

:08:29.:08:45.

being driven by Damien Benson. You can see that there are still

:08:46.:08:50.

tributes here. Earlier, Damhen Benson arrived at court surrounded

:08:51.:08:55.

by friends and family winning a grey suit and carrying a holdall. In

:08:56.:09:01.

court, we heard that he had been driving at between 48`50 miles per

:09:02.:09:10.

hour in this 30 miles per hour zone. Koen Allwood died almost

:09:11.:09:13.

immediately. His girlfriend has had to have five operations since then

:09:14.:09:15.

as she will to have another one soon. The judge said that no

:09:16.:09:22.

sentence can bring Koen Allwood back or restore his girlfriend to the

:09:23.:09:29.

happy, lively girl but she was. Koen Allwood's mum gave me her rdaction.

:09:30.:09:37.

It is terrible. I have another son who is only 12 years old and I had

:09:38.:09:41.

to tell them about it and kdep going for him. I just do not want to get

:09:42.:09:50.

out of bed. It feels like bding stabbed. You feel very alond. No

:09:51.:09:54.

parent should have to go through that.

:09:55.:09:59.

Tonight, Damien Benson is starting a six`year prison sentence. Koen

:10:00.:10:07.

Allwood's mum said that she wants to move to the future. She was too

:10:08.:10:14.

wrecked a memorial in the area. She hopes to go into local schools to

:10:15.:10:18.

talk to young people about the dangers of driving irresponsibly, in

:10:19.:10:21.

the hope that something poshtive can come out of this tragic event.

:10:22.:10:28.

The Grimsby MP, Austin Mitchell is one of a small number

:10:29.:10:31.

of MPs who voted against military action in Hraq

:10:32.:10:36.

Politicians have been recalled to the Commons to vote on whether the

:10:37.:10:39.

RAF should join the United States in air strikes against the grotp ISIS.

:10:40.:10:42.

Mr Mitchell, who is stepping down next ydar,

:10:43.:10:45.

is one of 43 MPs who were against bombing ` 524 were in favour.

:10:46.:10:53.

A teenager has been stabbed near the city centre in Hull.

:10:54.:10:56.

The 17`year`old boy suffered serious injuries when he was attackdd,

:10:57.:11:01.

with what police described as a "sharp object",

:11:02.:11:04.

A 47`year`old man has been `rrested on suspicion

:11:05.:11:07.

It is a weed that can grow eight hnches

:11:08.:11:19.

a day and can even penetratd tarmac ` potentially wiping thousands

:11:20.:11:21.

Now, it is thought Japanese knotweed has invaded an area

:11:22.:11:25.

of Hull that prides itself on its greenery and well`kept gardens.

:11:26.:11:28.

It is one of Hull's most le`fy neighbourhoods ` full

:11:29.:11:33.

But an unwelcome resident h`s put the shrubbery under scrutinx.

:11:34.:11:46.

It is indestructible. It can get the new tarmac and go through

:11:47.:11:50.

foundations. This is Japanese Knotweed

:11:51.:11:50.

in a passageway behind homes It is classed as one

:11:51.:11:52.

of the world's most invasivd species due to the impact it can have on

:11:53.:11:56.

biodiversity and the damage it can It's such a problem that

:11:57.:12:00.

in this country it is classdd as "controlled waste"

:12:01.:12:06.

to try and prevent its spre`d. People who live nearby had no idea

:12:07.:12:10.

such a menace was threatening Is it a worry? It is if the cause of

:12:11.:12:25.

damage to the house. If you want to move in the future, you havd to

:12:26.:12:27.

think whether it will affect the value of the house.

:12:28.:12:28.

But this Asian plant is not confined to one area of the city.

:12:29.:12:34.

This place in Hull is absolttely full of dad`mac. It is very

:12:35.:12:41.

difficult and expensive to get rid off. One expert has told me that to

:12:42.:12:45.

clear all of this land for `ny future work it would cost over

:12:46.:12:54.

?100,000. Here is a substantial amount of Japanese knotweed.

:12:55.:12:55.

Dave Cook is one specialist who has seen a rise in requests to deal with

:12:56.:12:58.

the invasive plant ` he says people need to know how to identifx it

:12:59.:13:03.

This is a perfect example of dad`mac. It has spear shaped

:13:04.:13:11.

leaves. The other important thing that you can see is that thdre is a

:13:12.:13:13.

green stem with purple speckles While we were filming, one passer

:13:14.:13:17.

by realised he has been battling I didn't know about it. I s`w you

:13:18.:13:31.

there and thought, I have that in my garden. I cannot get rid of it.

:13:32.:13:34.

With reports of some people being refused

:13:35.:13:36.

mortgages due to infestations of the plant, experts say normal

:13:37.:13:38.

The problem is that if you have a very long established plants. As any

:13:39.:13:56.

gardener will tell you, it will take several applications of weedkiller

:13:57.:13:58.

to get rid of it. But its cane`like stalks and deep

:13:59.:13:59.

roots cannot be thrown out with normal waste by law ` a gardening

:17:15.:17:17.

Mr Farage responded to a qudstion from a nurse at Boston's Pilgrim

:17:18.:17:21.

Hospital ` who asked whether the NHS UKIP's annual conference

:17:22.:17:24.

has started in Doncaster. Nigel Farage has been speakhng to

:17:25.:17:29.

our political editor, Tim Iredale. I have been wanting this cotntry to

:17:30.:17:43.

be free, independent, and self`governing. If Nigel Farage

:17:44.:17:47.

wants to secure MPs at Westlinster we will have to wind over voters in

:17:48.:17:55.

towns like Boston. I would like to ask misty Farage what he is going to

:17:56.:18:03.

do about his law and order policy. `` Nigel Farage. Many peopld who

:18:04.:18:09.

commit serious crimes only go to prison for a short time. We need to

:18:10.:18:18.

build more prison places. There are problems with placing due to be

:18:19.:18:21.

rocketed. We need a change of culture. I would like to ask Nigel

:18:22.:18:27.

Farage how he is good to crdate more jobs for English people in Boston.

:18:28.:18:34.

I'm going to control the labour supply. There are too many people

:18:35.:18:40.

coming looking for work. We are back to the peaks that we were at under

:18:41.:18:43.

the last Labour Party. It is getting harder for young people to get jobs.

:18:44.:18:51.

I work in a hospital and I `m Filipino. I would like to ask Nigel

:18:52.:18:59.

Farage weather he is happy to accept immigration in this country,

:19:00.:19:02.

particularly for the NHS? Is it necessary? No one is saying that

:19:03.:19:08.

there is not good people coling into work in the hill fog servicd.

:19:09.:19:13.

However, there are also manx people that we are providing hill fog care

:19:14.:19:18.

for. It is meant to be a national health care service. Do you accept

:19:19.:19:29.

that without foreign workers there will be a problem in the NHS? We

:19:30.:19:35.

need to control it. Almost dvery country in the work controls who is

coming to their country. We have an open door on an unlimited b`sis As

He was given the award for refusing to cut his hair

We are trying to raise ?50,000 through tickets, experiences,

auctions of shirts and boots ` whatever we can do.

:20:52.:20:56.

We are trying to give a little bit of money back to fund

the Teenage Cancer Trust in this region, especially

Castle Hill which is just around the corner from our training ground

:21:02.:21:04.

When a young person gets to meet someone from Hull City,

:21:05.:21:07.

But being able to come down to the football ground while they `re going

:21:08.:21:14.

through treatment is a really normal then the young people can do.

:21:15.:21:17.

Being able to partner with the club in that way is gre`t.

Good work is nothing new for the Hull City players,

Off came the hair and in came the cash and Huddleston has

been named Just Giving's celebrity fundraiser of the year.

The Bishop of Hull says he will miss the people

of Hull and East Yorkshire, as he prepares to leave the city to

:22:45.:22:47.

During his 16 years in the post the Right Reverend Richard Frith

:22:48.:22:51.

supported acceptance of womdn bishops and spoke out against

:22:52.:22:56.

a number of policies, including the so`called bedroom tax.

:22:57.:22:59.

It is very important that whth so much that is positive happening

:23:00.:23:02.

in the city that we do not `llow people to get left behind.

:23:03.:23:05.

I think the role, part of the role, of anyone who is involved in

:23:06.:23:08.

the life of the city is to try and ensure that we do not forget those

:23:09.:23:19.

There is a lot happening and a lot that is very positive

:23:20.:23:23.

I think that Hull being the city of culture is great

:23:24.:23:26.

and it does make me have very mixed feelings about leaving.

Liam Mower, from east Hull, was just 12 when he hit
