Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North. The headlines tonight:

:00:00.:00:11.

Breaking the law ` police crack down on drivers using phones.

:00:12.:00:16.

If you're looking at a phone or texting

:00:17.:00:18.

you miss those few seconds and the consequences can be tragic.

:00:19.:00:25.

Royal Mail finally drops Hulberside from address lists,

:00:26.:00:27.

I don't live there, it doesn't exist.

:00:28.:00:33.

I wasn't born in Humberside, I was born in Yorkshire.

:00:34.:00:38.

New calls for a Boston bypass as drivers spend hours in traffic.

:00:39.:00:42.

A royal visitor drops in on a local school `

:00:43.:00:44.

Prince Andrew praises pupils' business ideas.

:00:45.:00:48.

The mystery of the war pland found by divers on the east coast.

:00:49.:00:57.

And a fine day to come tomorrow but there is a change on the wax. I

:00:58.:01:05.

would back later in the programme with the details.

:01:06.:01:10.

Mobile phone use at the whedl is increasing,

:01:11.:01:14.

despite a fall in the number of drivers being caught.

:01:15.:01:19.

as a month`long campaign targeting offenders gets underway.

:01:20.:01:24.

Officers say more people ard using smart phones, updating soci`l media

:01:25.:01:27.

But the phones are being held out of sight,

:01:28.:01:33.

The level crossing gates have gone up, you can see the phone in her

:01:34.:01:48.

left hand. She is holding it up right now. It is still in hdr hand,

:01:49.:01:52.

you can see it. The first motorist caught today using a phone `t the

:01:53.:01:57.

wheel. I am glad to tell yot that you would be eligible for an

:01:58.:02:02.

educational course and under the circumstances, that is what I will

:02:03.:02:05.

recommend. It is an offence all to familiar. Our camera easily spotted

:02:06.:02:10.

an above people talking on their phones while driving this morning.

:02:11.:02:13.

Another people caught on thdir phones behind the wheel has fallen

:02:14.:02:19.

over the last three years. Hn 2 11, it was just under 3000 whild last

:02:20.:02:24.

year, 1369 `` 1689 record. 93% were set on a course rather than

:02:25.:02:39.

receiving a final penalty points. The fall in figures may be down to

:02:40.:02:44.

technology such as Bluetooth, meaning that phone use is ldss

:02:45.:02:52.

visible. Just follow us, pldase Modern technology like smartphones

:02:53.:02:58.

mean they can be kept out of you from the police. That is wh`t the

:02:59.:03:04.

police say is difficult to detect. I have seen you come past with a

:03:05.:03:08.

mobile phone in your hand and you are pressing it with your thumb It

:03:09.:03:11.

is all text in, social medi`, looking on websites and so on. Then

:03:12.:03:18.

we have the messaging services. So people have their phone in their

:03:19.:03:23.

hand, where we can't see it. We would struggle to detect th`t a lot

:03:24.:03:27.

of the time. I'm not on the phone when I'm driving. It is one of those

:03:28.:03:32.

stupid things where you glanced down. It makes a lot of sense. I

:03:33.:03:39.

have admitted I was using it, so it is fair enough. Driving

:03:40.:03:44.

organisations say more enforcement and higher penalties are nedded to

:03:45.:03:49.

act as a deterrent in an agd where people are tied to their mobile

:03:50.:03:53.

phones. One of the problems is that many people seem almost addhcted to

:03:54.:03:57.

their phones, so if they he`r that they have got a text or a social

:03:58.:04:05.

media alert coming through, they feel compelled to look at it. That

:04:06.:04:10.

is the problem. People cannot control themselves, they should turn

:04:11.:04:14.

their phone off when they are in the car. Officers say drink`driving and

:04:15.:04:20.

not wearing a seat belt is now socially unacceptable. Attitudes

:04:21.:04:22.

need to be changed before it is the same for mobile phone use.

:04:23.:04:25.

I'm joined by Inspector Mark Hughes from Humberside Police.

:04:26.:04:30.

Good evening. Why do you thhnk it does not have the same stigla as

:04:31.:04:41.

drink driving? It hasn't, bdcause drink`driving has been long

:04:42.:04:45.

established over the years `nd it is now socially unacceptable, `s you

:04:46.:04:49.

say. Mobile phones and other such devices are now an everyday part of

:04:50.:04:59.

everyone's life. What about the numbers of people using thehr phones

:05:00.:05:06.

compare to the number being caught? I'm sure they would be frighteningly

:05:07.:05:13.

high but I do not have the numbers. If they are just reading thdir phone

:05:14.:05:18.

beneath the steering wheel hs that breaking the law? It is, yes it is

:05:19.:05:24.

extending the dangerous. It is more dangerous than using the mobile

:05:25.:05:29.

phone to have a conversation, because you are reading and not

:05:30.:05:31.

looking where you're going. Even just reading it? Because yot cannot

:05:32.:05:39.

catch that. Not always, it hs difficult. It depends on thd line of

:05:40.:05:45.

sight. That discrepancy between the number of people you catch `nd the

:05:46.:05:48.

number of people doing it, ht could be enormously high. It could be

:05:49.:05:53.

yes. If most people get sent on a course, there is not much ddterrent.

:05:54.:05:59.

There is another way of looking at that. A lot of people, becatse

:06:00.:06:03.

everyone uses mobile phones these days, they would probably t`ke the

:06:04.:06:08.

risk because not a lot of pdople get caught in relation to the ntmber who

:06:09.:06:12.

use it. If you educate people, I personally don't think people really

:06:13.:06:16.

belies the consequences `` really realise the consequences of it. It

:06:17.:06:24.

just occur to them what happens in that one or two seconds. A friend of

:06:25.:06:31.

mine said he always answers the phone if it rings. He said ht was

:06:32.:06:37.

business, he could lose bushness. What you say to people like him who

:06:38.:06:42.

be watching at the moment? H understand his rationale for

:06:43.:06:45.

answering the phone but it hs not an excuse. Whatever the reason for the

:06:46.:06:49.

call, the danger is still there It is exactly the same, whatevdr the

:06:50.:06:54.

reason. You could still havd that accident, whether it be minor,

:06:55.:06:58.

serious or the most tragic. Very good to see you. Thank you for

:06:59.:07:03.

coming into night. We are grateful. We would like your thoughts on this

:07:04.:07:04.

one. Do you think drivers

:07:05.:07:06.

who use a mobile phone Is a course enough

:07:07.:07:08.

of a deterrent to drivers? Do you use your phone while driving

:07:09.:07:11.

and what would make you stop? You have heard the story thdre and

:07:12.:07:22.

the figures. We would like xour views.

:07:23.:07:34.

18 years after the county of Humberside was abolished,

:07:35.:07:36.

campaigners have finally won their fight

:07:37.:07:37.

Royal Mail bosses have agredd to no longer put

:07:38.:07:41.

North and South Humberside in directories

:07:42.:07:43.

The county name was unpopul`r with many and frustration has grown

:07:44.:07:47.

at the continued use of Humberside on letters.

:07:48.:07:50.

Melanie Moss makes and sells chutneys, marmalades and jals.

:07:51.:07:58.

It's important to her both personally and professionally

:07:59.:08:02.

that she's seen as based in East Yorkshire.

:08:03.:08:05.

But, if you look at her post, not everyone has got the message.

:08:06.:08:09.

I just find it really, really frustrating.

:08:10.:08:18.

I don't live there, it doesn't exist.

:08:19.:08:20.

It was abolished in 1996 and, you know, everything else

:08:21.:08:26.

in the world is rushed to bd updated but we are East Yorkshire.

:08:27.:08:30.

The county of Humberside was created in 19 4,

:08:31.:08:34.

composed from the East Riding, Hull and parts of Lincolnshhre.

:08:35.:08:38.

It was abolished in 1996 after years of unpopularity

:08:39.:08:42.

and replaced with four separate authorithes.

:08:43.:08:46.

The name, though, has often lived on, even the highest places.

:08:47.:08:50.

I'm sure it will be a great success for Hull

:08:51.:08:54.

But it's one of David Cameron's own who's claiming victory todax

:08:55.:08:57.

after taking on the battle to banish the Humberside address.

:08:58.:09:02.

Eight or nine years ago, I started the campaign to s`y

:09:03.:09:06.

I didn't think it would need to be a campaign.

:09:07.:09:11.

My constituents joined together with me, sending stickers saying,

:09:12.:09:15.

address not recognised whenever any junk mail came through

:09:16.:09:19.

And it's made many of his constituents in Beverley happy,

:09:20.:09:25.

although not everyone is that bothered.

:09:26.:09:27.

Well, we've actually realisdd it doesn't exist any more,

:09:28.:09:30.

so it would be nice for it to be recognised.

:09:31.:09:32.

I was not born in Humbersidd, I was born in East Yorkshird.

:09:33.:09:38.

No problems with Humberside on postal addresses or anything like

:09:39.:09:42.

Royal Mail has said it may take time

:09:43.:09:47.

depending on how quickly colpanies update their databases.

:09:48.:09:51.

is firmly trying to build on her Yorkshire brand,

:09:52.:09:57.

she may find that Humbersidd is preserved on her post

:09:58.:10:00.

Jo is in Beverley tonight ` success for campaigners over Royal Lail

:10:01.:10:06.

Yes, the BBC is not exempt hn this because the local radio station here

:10:07.:10:21.

for Beverley is BBC Radio Humberside. I have been told by the

:10:22.:10:26.

station editor today there `re no post change the name of the radio

:10:27.:10:32.

station, it is one of the BBC's most successful and also the namd Radio

:10:33.:10:36.

Humberside predates the County of Humberside by three years, so it has

:10:37.:10:38.

that heritage. Humberside Police have told me that when the county

:10:39.:10:44.

was abolished, there were some talk about changing the name to Humber

:10:45.:10:53.

but the cost of that would be prohibitive. Humberside fivd Brigade

:10:54.:11:00.

have the same sort of costs facing them so they have said therd are no

:11:01.:11:05.

plans in these stringent tiles and what they believe is that is the

:11:06.:11:09.

service that counts, not thd name. Thank you very much indeed.

:11:10.:11:12.

What do you think of the Royal Mail's decision

:11:13.:11:15.

Are you one of those that will miss it

:11:16.:11:18.

and think Humberside should never have been abolished?

:11:19.:11:20.

Or will you be celebrating its demise tonight?

:11:21.:11:24.

I'll be talking to Graham Stuart later on tonight.

:11:25.:11:31.

Police believe a man was st`bbed after he asked another man

:11:32.:11:33.

to come down from scaffolding attached to a house in Hull.

:11:34.:11:36.

Armed police were sent to Beverley Road yesterday aftdrnoon.

:11:37.:11:38.

Police say the 36`year`old victim's injuries are not life threatening.

:11:39.:11:42.

We are looking for a white lan in his 30s, 5'8" or 5'9",

:11:43.:11:49.

with black hair, with silver flecks in it.

:11:50.:11:51.

At the time of the incident, he was wearing blue jeans

:11:52.:11:54.

Clearly, it is of concern to us in relation to the injuries

:11:55.:11:58.

If the public to see this m`le, they are not to approach hil `

:11:59.:12:03.

Thieves using a digger have ripped a supermarket cash machine

:12:04.:12:09.

out of a wall and escaped with its contents.

:12:10.:12:13.

The police were called to the Co`op in Market Deephng

:12:14.:12:15.

A petition calling for a bypass for Boston in Lincolnshire

:12:16.:12:23.

has so far received just under 1,000 signatures.

:12:24.:12:28.

A group, which represents businesses in the town,

:12:29.:12:30.

says the lack of a bypass is having an impact

:12:31.:12:33.

But the county council says there is currently no funding available,

:12:34.:12:36.

although it is trying to find some money.

:12:37.:12:38.

The evening rush hour in Boston But people here say it often lasts

:12:39.:12:44.

from 3:30pm until 6pm. And, right now, roadworks on the

:12:45.:12:50.

We definitely need a bypass. It gets so cramped with cars and evdn

:12:51.:13:01.

walking is difficult, to get across the road. We have so much traffic,

:13:02.:13:05.

we have Sunni houses being built, the road cannot cope.

:13:06.:13:08.

Businesses say the lack of ` bypass is having a serious impact.

:13:09.:13:12.

The footfall in the town is going down. You also have issues for the

:13:13.:13:19.

farming community, the food Manufacturer 's and so one, getting

:13:20.:13:21.

the produce out of the county. Government figures show

:13:22.:13:24.

the A1 at Grantham used by more than

:13:25.:13:26.

42,000 vehicles every day. But the A16 through Boston

:13:27.:13:29.

is the second busiest ` nearly 38,000 vehicles

:13:30.:13:32.

cross the river daily. That compares to fewer than 30, 00

:13:33.:13:35.

using the A46 Lincoln bypass. The moment you do any kind of look

:13:36.:13:47.

work in Austen, you have flooding to deal with and at least two rivers

:13:48.:13:50.

and a railway line have to be crossed, so we're talking about

:13:51.:13:54.

really substantial pieces of a battle investment, ?100 million or

:13:55.:13:57.

more. That cannot be delivered quickly or easily.

:13:58.:14:00.

This online petition isn't the first campaign.

:14:01.:14:02.

Seven years ago, a group took control of the council camp`igning

:14:03.:14:05.

The current council thinks a major development could provide

:14:06.:14:10.

some relief for developers building a new football stadium,

:14:11.:14:13.

They'll also build a new road to take some traffic

:14:14.:14:18.

If you are coming from the @16 and you want to get onto the A52, you

:14:19.:14:32.

have to go virtually into the centre and go out again. This will take me

:14:33.:14:35.

straight around without even touching Boston. Although m`ny

:14:36.:14:39.

people here have told me thdy do think a bypass is the best option,

:14:40.:14:44.

they will be hoping that thd new road starts to ease the traffic

:14:45.:14:45.

soon. Divers from Grimsby think they have

:14:46.:14:53.

found a Second World War pl`ne And what does this

:14:54.:14:58.

village name mean? We reveal some little`known facts

:14:59.:15:03.

on Lincolnshire Day. Now, to night's photograph was taken

:15:04.:15:25.

by Claire near Cleethorpes. Another photo tomorrow night.

:15:26.:15:32.

That looks more like Barbados! Don't try to butter me up comedy

:15:33.:15:37.

were being mean last night. That is not me talking, after you asked me

:15:38.:15:42.

to be your dance partner I was inundated with complaints about you.

:15:43.:15:47.

For example, I thought he w`s underlined turning `` iMac not

:15:48.:15:58.

gallant telling you down. We obviously get on very well.

:15:59.:16:04.

You can make your mind up in the next few days. Tomorrow looks like a

:16:05.:16:07.

nice day, warm once again in the sunshine after any early`morning

:16:08.:16:11.

mist has lifted. As we go through the next few days, Thursday or

:16:12.:16:16.

Friday, it does not look too bad. The first storm of the autuln will

:16:17.:16:19.

push from the north`west late on Friday, bringing some wet and windy

:16:20.:16:22.

weather. With high`pressure close by, the front that is affecting us

:16:23.:16:27.

is not producing a lot of r`in. It just reduces a lot of cloud to end

:16:28.:16:35.

the day. That pushes Southe`st and has some moisture on it. Under the

:16:36.:16:40.

cloud, so mist and fog will form. In the countryside, it will be cooler.

:16:41.:16:45.

We could get a touch of frost in east Yorkshire. Sunrise at 7:04am.

:16:46.:16:56.

Some early morning mist. It will linger through the rush hour before

:16:57.:16:59.

it lifts and a draw in fright they with some sunny spells. The best of

:17:00.:17:03.

which through the morning. Lore cloud through the afternoon, turning

:17:04.:17:07.

cloudy and breezy as well. Temperatures around 16 or 17

:17:08.:17:11.

degrees. Another dry comedy since day. That comes off the back of a

:17:12.:17:15.

very dry September, the dridst for the UK on record. That is bdcause

:17:16.:17:21.

the Jetstream has been north of us, leaving us in fine conditions. In

:17:22.:17:25.

the next few days, it will love southwards and it will steer areas

:17:26.:17:28.

of low pressure across the TK, bringing spells of unsettled

:17:29.:17:36.

weather, more seasonal weather. That starts on Friday. On Friday to

:17:37.:17:39.

Saturday, wet and windy weather some very heavy spells of r`in.

:17:40.:17:45.

Changeable and unsettled conditions for the weekend and next wedk.

:17:46.:17:49.

All I could say is that there were plenty of offers the other night.

:17:50.:17:58.

Prince Andrew has been meethng school children

:17:59.:18:00.

He's been seeing some of the work being done

:18:01.:18:03.

to get youngsters interested in business.

:18:04.:18:05.

and met pupils from three Hull schools.

:18:06.:18:08.

He met people from the Acaddmy, all keen to show off their enterprise

:18:09.:18:31.

skills. It is a delivery method You have turned it into an app. He was

:18:32.:18:37.

keen to visit Hull after medting members of the enterprise

:18:38.:18:40.

partnership in June and being impressed by a board game they had

:18:41.:18:45.

designed. I can see that Hull and Yorkshire are going in a direction

:18:46.:18:49.

that they know where they nded to go and they know what young people need

:18:50.:18:54.

and what is really impressive with that is the fact that young people

:18:55.:19:00.

are responding. It was an alazing experience. He is a royal at the end

:19:01.:19:03.

of the day and he has come here today, it is a good experience, not

:19:04.:19:10.

just for us but for the whole of Hull as well. How long have you been

:19:11.:19:18.

doing this? A year. AJ? Are you paying the bills because yot are

:19:19.:19:23.

earning the money? Having arrived by car, the Duke left in some style.

:19:24.:19:27.

Those behind the trip hope the visit will inspire the entreprenetrial

:19:28.:19:32.

spirit of the city's young people in future.

:19:33.:19:37.

A surgeon at Boston Pilgrim Hospital has spent thousands of pounds

:19:38.:19:39.

of his own money on hospital improvements

:19:40.:19:41.

which could reduce the numbdr of infections.

:19:42.:19:43.

Dr Michael Oko says using copper surfaces

:19:44.:19:45.

will dramatically cut infection rates.

:19:46.:19:47.

The government estimates infections caught in hospitals

:19:48.:19:49.

and lengthen hospital stays by up to three weeks.

:19:50.:19:52.

We may be the last generation to actually enjoy antibiotics.

:19:53.:19:55.

so you have to think about the legacy of where we are now.

:19:56.:20:00.

If we can't kill something, for example like ebola,

:20:01.:20:03.

Thanks to everyone who got hn touch about packed lunches yesterday.

:20:04.:20:10.

It was after a primary school in Hull

:20:11.:20:12.

was forced to change a policy of getting 11`year`old pupils

:20:13.:20:17.

to check younger childrens' lunches for unhealthy snacks.

:20:18.:20:24.

"Ban all junk food in packed lunches in all schools.

:20:25.:20:29.

"I agree with schools banning certain foods from lunch boxes.

:20:30.:20:35.

"If parents want to give chhldren unhealthy snacks, do it at home "

:20:36.:20:38.

"It is absolutely ridiculous the school are dictating

:20:39.:20:43.

"The parents are the ones buying the food."

:20:44.:20:52.

Divers from Grimsby think they have found a rare Second World W`r plane

:20:53.:20:55.

on the sea bed off the coast of Lincolnshire.

:20:56.:21:01.

But mystery surrounds the dhscovery near Mablethorpe,

:21:02.:21:02.

because the crash does not appear on official records.

:21:03.:21:05.

one of the most important aircraft of the Second World War.

:21:06.:21:14.

Its job was to destroy the T`boats targetting ships in the Atl`ntic,

:21:15.:21:17.

keeping open the trade routds that were a lifeline to Britain

:21:18.:21:21.

Now it's thought one has been discovered

:21:22.:21:23.

The Sunderland flying boats were a big thing in the Second World War.

:21:24.:21:30.

Winston Churchill was in love with them.

:21:31.:21:31.

He thought they were the best thing since sliced bread.

:21:32.:21:34.

And they did a huge service to the country.
