North. The headlines tonight: The lunch police checking children's

pack`ups for banned food. Hull helps to solve a recruhtment

National Powerboat Championships say it may head up the coast next year.

toilets. The ?1 million fundraising campaign

for guide dogs which has taken nearly 50 years.

:01:09.:01:22.

A school in Hull has tonight changed a controversial policy on p`cked

:01:23.:01:37.

Academy gave 11`year`olds jobs as packed lunch police to check

:01:38.:01:39.

other pupils' lunches for chocolate, crisps and sausage rolls. M`ny

:01:40.:01:42.

parents say it is up to thel what goes in the lunchbox. After we

:01:43.:01:45.

contacted the school today, they changed the policy and said the

:01:46.:01:48.

responsibility for checking pack`ups would now pass to teachers. Phillip

:01:49.:01:50.

The morning ritual of packing lunches for Rachel's two chhldren.

:01:51.:02:10.

A child's lunchbox, inside the sausage roll, chocolate and crisps

:02:11.:02:13.

that will get a warning from the packed lunch policd,

:02:14.:02:23.

a school imposed police force of Year 6 pupils that sends

:02:24.:02:25.

warnings home to fellow students parents for unhealthy food.

:02:26.:02:34.

for their dinner. It is the parents' decision.

:02:35.:02:47.

It is ridiculous. It is not down to staff or children what the kids eat

:02:48.:02:57.

Rachel says her children have been returning home hungry,

:02:58.:02:59.

afraid to eat items which could land them in trouble

:03:00.:03:07.

I would rather pack them up with something than worry it's something

:03:08.:03:11.

At the school today, many parents were unhappy.

:03:12.:03:14.

It is disgusting where they can get ten`year`olds other children's bags.

:03:15.:03:17.

I did not know who is polichng the ten`year`olds. My children, if they

:03:18.:03:20.

see the police coming round, they hide the food so they do not get

:03:21.:03:23.

into trouble. It is wrong, putting them in a predicament that they do

:03:24.:03:27.

not need to be in. It can c`use arguments, as well.

:03:28.:03:29.

The issue of healthy school meals was first highlighted by

:03:30.:03:32.

Jamie Oliver in 2005 when hd managed to remove now infamous

:03:33.:03:34.

Another high`profile incident saw parents feeding children fish

:03:35.:03:41.

and chips and burgers through a school fence in Rotherham as they

:03:42.:03:44.

And it's not the first time Hall Road Academy has hit the he`dlines.

:03:45.:03:48.

At the height of Euro 2012, the school banned football

:03:49.:03:53.

The statement says there has been a huge abbreviation `` radiathon

:03:54.:04:37.

``variation and the types of food brought in for school lunchds and

:04:38.:04:40.

the policy domains but will no longer be policed by pupils.

:04:41.:04:45.

Jo Nicholas is from the Children's Food Trust, a charity which offers

:04:46.:04:48.

advice and training to help kids have a balanced diet. I started by

:04:49.:04:51.

asking her what she made of lunch boxes being checked.

:04:52.:04:58.

I think it is up to every individual school to decide what is best for

:04:59.:05:07.

the pupils and for themselvds. It needs to be done with full `nd

:05:08.:05:12.

proper consultation with parents. Parents have told us that they

:05:13.:05:16.

should choose what goes at ` lunch box. Should the school suspdct that?

:05:17.:05:21.

I think it is all about givhng consistent messages. In the canteen

:05:22.:05:28.

at lunch time pupils cannot have things like confectionery and salty

:05:29.:05:31.

snacks like crisps and sugary drinks. A classy children are taught

:05:32.:05:36.

about healthy eating and it is important for those consistdnt

:05:37.:05:42.

messages. What do you say to parents who regularly put crests and sausage

:05:43.:05:47.

rolls and chocolates in the lunchbox of her son or daughter? We would

:05:48.:05:54.

encourage parents to follow the packed lunch policies of schools

:05:55.:06:00.

where they are in place. I would not say a child should have those in the

:06:01.:06:02.

lunchbox. Who should dictate what's in a

:06:03.:06:08.

packed lunch? Do parents know best Armed police officers have

:06:09.:06:12.

surrounded a house in Hull. The emergency services were

:06:13.:06:44.

:06:59.:07:13.

Nurses are visiting all secondary schools to give the vaccine, which

hoped the area will be redeveloped The Government is to give an extra

:07:31.:07:33.

?2 million to help improve rail services between Lincoln and

:07:34.:07:39.

Nottingham. The additional funding will be used to run faster lore

:07:40.:07:41.

frequent trains. The changes are expected to be made by May next

:07:42.:07:44.

year. The main one

:07:45.:07:48.

for us is that there is a ndw It will be leaving Lincoln puite

for businesses and those th`t live, It's claimed Britain is at risk of

:08:06.:08:08.

being left with a "one shot" Army that could never fight in more than

:08:09.:08:19.

one country. The Government wants to double the number of reservhsts

:08:20.:08:22.

while dramatically reducing the regular Army. But with recrtitment

:08:23.:08:27.

much slower than expected the army performed a stunt in the centre of

short`sighted and another one said it is like moving from comprehensive

weekend. One lady has asked you to stop putting your hand in your

trouser pocket. See you tomorrow. Trading Standards officers hn

:16:21.:16:36.

Lincolnshire have raided shops and seized hundreds of packets of what

:16:37.:16:38.

are described as legal highs. Scientists at the Universitx of

:16:39.:16:41.

Lincoln are currently testing the powders to check if they contain any

:16:42.:16:43.

illegal substances. Many sililar drugs were made illegal by the

:16:44.:16:47.

government in 2010, and expdrts say manufacturers are making tiny

:16:48.:16:49.

changes to the drugs to get round This is one

:16:50.:16:52.

of 1100 packets seized by Trading Standards in Lincolnshire

:16:53.:16:59.

recently. Sold legally in shops

:17:00.:17:00.

on the high street, now scientists are analysing them to

:17:01.:17:02.

find out exactly what they contain. We have powders and pills

:17:03.:17:07.

and then herbal products. The powders and the pills txpically

:17:08.:17:13.

are stimulants and they are designed The herbal products,

:17:14.:17:15.

tend to be cannabinoids, Known as new psychoactive

:17:16.:17:21.

substances, legal highs are designed to have the same effect

:17:22.:17:30.

as illegal drugs but they h`ve been changed ever so slightly

:17:31.:17:33.

at a molecular level so thex are However, the most recent figures

:17:34.:17:36.

show the number of deaths lhnked to legal highs in the UK rose

:17:37.:17:43.

from 10 in 2009, to 68 in 2012. The concern is these

:17:44.:17:47.

substances are not regulated. Manufactured in premises

:17:48.:17:49.

which have got no quality control, no safety precautions in pl`ce

:17:50.:17:59.

and no`one knows what the short or long term effects of these products

:18:00.:18:05.

are going to be on the user. The owner of one

:18:06.:18:09.

of the places recently raiddd says she only buys from suppliers she

:18:10.:18:12.

trusts and never sells to children. She worries targeting shops

:18:13.:18:16.

like hers will force the sale of legal highs underground,

:18:17.:18:18.

making them even harder to control. The problem is a lot

:18:19.:18:21.

of this stuff is now being sold for easy money under the cotnter

:18:22.:18:23.

by people who are not displ`ying it, by houses that I know of

continue to strictly monitor legal highs and if harmful substances are

:19:08.:19:09.

The Council says it's liaishng with organisers and no decisions have

been made. Tolu Adeoye reports. These were the crowds in Hull to

says Hull City Council has never helped with funding and wants it to

It is not just financial, it is about the heritage of the Rhver

:20:08.:20:18.

Humber and it is a great spdctacle and it is free. Officials from the

council said they did not think it was appropriate to talk abott this

which asked people living in the East Riding if they wanted Hull to

:20:50.:21:00.

have more control of their `ffairs. More than 96% of those who voted

:21:01.:21:10.

said they didn't want Hull to extend its boundaries to take in places

:21:11.:21:14.

like Hedon, Hessle and Cotthngham. Mark from Hull says "They don't

someone who is happy to go `nd speak to somebody in a school or ` club

and regional headlines. The Home Secretary says a future Conservative

government would impose tighter restrictions on people with

controversial policy on packed lunches that led furious parents to

start a petition. Tomorrow's weather: Rather cloudy

many places will stay dry. Laximum temperature 18 Centigrade (64

:26:48.:27:05.

to ask parents what they should put in packed lunches. Shirley says she

:27:06.:27:17.

would rather give her child something she knew they would eat

:27:18.:27:20.

rather than have them be hungry all day. Another lady says that parents

:27:21.:27:30.

who put unhealthy stuff and a packed lunch might need educating

themselves while Simon says that the duty of the school is to edtcate and
