It looks like a very quiet week with high pressure in charge. The


detailed forecasts coming up shortly.


People living in a village on the East Yorkshire coast have


told Look North that last week's tidal surge has eaten a large area


of the cliffs and they may now have to leave their homes.


Some residents in Skipsea say the storm's taken up to four feet


At one point there were 34 flood warnings in place along the coast


and homes were evacuated as high tides and strong winds hit.


Our Environment correspondent Paul Murphy is in Skipsea tonight.


Paul, how unusual is such a big loss of land in such


This coastline is pretty notorious as she may know, it is the fastest


eroding coastline in Europe but most years the only EU is perhaps one


metre but to lose an entire meter in just two hours, it has got everybody


so worried. One, I spoke to reckon he has lost around 2.5 metres from


his garden and he says if that happens again his house is under


threat. He is feeling pretty insecure about living here now, as


are the owners and people who rent about 25 properties along this


cliff. Residents have spent this morning


fixing fences and clearing debris. Friday's tidal surge


saw waves breaking over at the end of their gardens


and showering their homes with rocks I was stood at the window watching


it and it came right up, right over, broke that man's fence next door


and a few more further on. And you told me that


stones from the waves There was little stones,


they were hitting my window. I thought my window


was going to come through. This was the scene on Friday as huge


waves carved in big chunks out This is already the fastest eroding


coastline in Europe. Residents here talk


about the nine metre rule - the distance between their homes


and the cliff edge. Once it is breached


it is their understanding the local authority will ask them


to leave their homes. It is pretty clear that Friday


night's tidal surge has brought Mandy believes this is probably


her last winter living She lost more than one metre


of her garden in just two If we have another bad


day we will have to go. Because we haven't even got nine


metres at the moment now. We're having to take


the conservatory down so that we have got the length


they allow us. A resident here for 25 years,


she says no one appears to be concerned about defending this coast


from the sea. There is money available


and I know there is, I mean, if they can spend


400 million on the palace, if she's going to let her land go,


she is going to have But we want our house


protected with a sea defence. Surveyors have spent the day


assessing precisely how But it is clear some of those living


here may need to think carefully about whether it is safe to continue


living life on the edge And as high table comes in behind


the biggest riding and Yorkshire Council told me their engineers are


assessing end of a detailed way the amount of land lost here in the past


48 hours. Clearly many residents will be worried by this and as for


the question of defences, many see a belief that is not going to happen


and they will be asked to leave their homes. It is the question of


when, rather than if. It is the rate of erosion that is worrying so many


on this particular stretch of the East Yorkshire coast thank you. That


subject is one we followed throughout the life of this


programme and we will continue to do so.


The inquests into the deaths of 30 british tourists in Tunisia in 2015,


including three from this area, has started in London.


Claire Windass and Bruce Wilkinson from East Yorkshire and Carly Lovett


from Lincolnshire were among those killed by a gunman.


In the opening evidence, the inquest heard that Tunisian law


enforcement units deliberately delayed their arrival on the scene.


Our reporter Emily Unia has been at the inquests today.


They began by reading out the names of all 38 of the victims and one


minute's silence was observed. The first evidence force from the


Metropolitan Police was counter terrorism unit sent officers out in


the September 2015 following the attacks. The user witness


statements, video evidence of photographs to piece together


exactly what route of the gunman took and created a 3-D


reconstruction of his journey and included CCTV footage of a white van


dropping him off close to the wholesale. This reconstruction also


showed us with each of the victims died -- forced the hotel. We saw


where Claire Windass from Hull, Bruce Wilkinson and Carly Lovett all


lost their lives. What other evidence do we expect in


the coming days? We have already heard from a


Tunisian judge who wrote a report on the attacks and established local


security units could have responded faster and stop the attacks sooner


but we will also hear evidence about the victims themselves and families


will be keen to hear the evidence that locals put themselves fought to


protect tourists and risked their own lives to protect the visitors.


We are also likely to hear the travel company, the organiser of the


holidays Thomson is going to give evidence in early February and


families are keen to know exactly what their loved ones were told


about the terror threat in Tunisia before they decided to go on


holiday. The inquest is expected to last seven weeks. Thank you very


much, Emily. Northern Gas networks says it's


still looking into why thousands of people were left without gas


in Withernsea over the weekend. The gas went off at around 6


on Saturday evening and stayed off The shuttle bus which runs


between Bridlington and Scarborough Hospitals will be


axed at the end of this month. An experimental pay-as-you-ride


service has turned out not to be financially viable,


according to officials in Beverley. The MP for Gainsborough,


Sir Edward Leigh, says some patients in our area are falling victim


to an NHS postcode lottery. He says the Government should


consider charging patients His comments come as some health


managers across Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire admit they're


having to restrict access to some procedures because


of funding pressures. Our health correspondent,


Vicky Johnson reports. It's called the National Health


Service, but there are growing concerns that access to it can


depend on where you live. It is not a national service,


it is now a local health service. I think it matters because it means


it leads to inequalities in health So some people will get health care


for free and others will not. Bradley Marshall from Bridlington


has benefited from this He is one of fewer than 1000


patients who have had proton therapy treatment in the US funded


by the NHS. The funding is vital


for children everywhere. Without it they are


left with nothing. He leads a normal life,


which is everything He is continuing to have scans


at the moment but that Bradley's treatment for a spinal


tumour cost more than ?100,000, but now even run-of-the-mill


procedures have to be agreed Clinical commissioning groups


or CCGs, control health budgets. In East Riding some procedures


are now restricted or not Patients are required to lose weight


and give up smoking before getting operations like hip


and knee replacements. Cosmetic surgery and sterilisation


reversal operations are among those not now routinely commissioned


and are instead considered It is a National Service


with local variations based Demographically populations


vary quite significantly from towns to rural,


county to county. It is really important


we commission and respond to the needs of the population


on that local basis. Health managers in Lincolnshire add


it is their duty to ensure a patient gets the best treatment for them,


whilst making the best It does not involve


rationing NHS care. The Royal College of Surgeons does


not see it the same way, though. There is pretty good evidence people


are now not getting elective operations which they desperately


sometimes require simply A bureaucratic system


which produces a blanket ban There are 10,000 more patients


admitted to hospital every day compared to ten years ago


and that is at a huge Many people believe it is time


to talk again about how we best support one of our


most cherished institutions. Earlier I spoke to the Gainsborough


MP Sir Edward Leigh and asked him whether we should pay for some


treatment. To put it into context,


in Lincolnshire you can wait four weeks to see a doctor,


you can wait two hours for an ambulance and you can wait


four hours in A before Something must be done, we need


to get more money in the system. You could say the Government should


know about the demographics because the ageing population should


not be a surprise, it More importantly we


are short of money. The country has borrowed up to hilt,


nobody wants to pay more tax, they get much better health outcomes


in Germany and France. You do have to pay a bit more money


but if you cannot afford Do we now need to start paying


for some treatments? In Australia, if you want to go


and see a doctor you have If you turn up you get


half of it back. And in France if you turn up


and you cannot afford to pay In other words, what about the tens


of millions of pounds, hundreds of thousands of people


who do not turn up Rationing and different conditions


is already being introduced. Depending on where you live and how


much money your local CCG has got. And that is what I put it


to the secretary of state. In Lincolnshire we get


a much worse service. In North Lincolnshire we get a much


worse service than in London where they have all these great


teaching hospitals where you can be seen by a GP within a day or two,


where you're picked up off the road We do have a postcode lottery


and so we should fight our corner and say we deserve just as good as


London or Birmingham and Manchester. Do you think the Government needs


to find more money or is there no Simon Stephens said this week that


over the next three years funding Byby the way, Peter,


I am not the Government, Well, you're representing


the Government. But I support the Government


generally, and the Government, year by year, and this Government


gives more and more to the NHS. There is no such thing


as Government, it is the people and their taxes and what the people,


particularly people of my age who are not getting as good


a service now have got to ask is why don't we get as good a service


as people in France or Germany? Maybe people individually


have got to pay more, not just the Government,


because otherwise we're going to spent more money,


it'll go into a bottomless pit, we have a vast bureaucracy,


why we cutting back this huge bureaucracy


in the NHS? Give me an example of one area,


apart from cancelled appointments and everything,


where you would get people to pay. I think, as in Australia,


we could look at paying to go and see your GP and then


being free after that. I think we could look


at cancelled appointments, we could look at paying


for your accommodation in hospitals. I'm not suggesting it has to happen,


I'm suggesting we should at least talk about how we're going to give


more money to the system and we cannot just keep talking


about the Government will do this or that because it is just vast


billions of taxpayers' money going into waste and incompetence


and more bureaucracy. We have to localise the NHS,


give control back to local doctors and we may have


to have more charges. Bear in mind this is the people


who want the service, they want to be assured


the ambulance will pick them up. We'll throw it open to people


at home and see what they think. What do we think about this one? Is


Sir Edward Leigh right? Should we start a discussion about how the NHS


is funded? Should it change from being free at the point of delivery.


Where should the money come from? We heard some ideas they are. Are you


happy to pay for Mr GP appointment? What, if any, treatment should be


looked at making a payment for or towards? There is the e-mail address


and the text number. Tweet us now as well. We will have some before we


finish at 7pm. They are or more on the issues facing the NHS in Inside


Out tonight, 7:30pm on BBC One. Still ahead tonight: Why


the traditional cream phone box I am not from Hull naturally but we


came here 40 years ago and it was the first thing we noticed. It is a


cultural icon, it represents the city.


Tonight's photographs. A lovely picture and another one tomorrow.


Good evening. How are you? ICQ programme is back to make on BBC One


at 7:30pm. I look forward to it. You will see a presenter who present


with out the use of an autocue. Perhaps you can take some tips.


Nobody is laughing at all. I give you a plug and you throw it back in


my face. I will be looking out for all three sentences! All right, all


right, Albright! The headline for tomorrow and the rest of the week,


mostly dry and rather cloudy. A very boring week, perhaps you like it


like that, with high pressure in charge. Some dampness at first


tonight and tomorrow but the rest of the week is fine and settled. The


best chance of any brightness around the wash and North West Norfolk. You


can see the extent of the cloud on the satellite picture, producing


light rain on and off throughout today. Essentially not fought and


Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire will become dry. All some misty nests in


the border area and defend Munns, a touch of ground frost. No problems


with temperatures. The sun rises in the morning at 8:09am. All you high


water times and there as well. Further cloudy, the best chance of


any sunny in North West Norfolk, elsewhere the cloud might be thick


enough for some rain but I suspect it will be mostly dry. Let's look at


those top temperatures. The light and variable breeze. Quite a chilly


feeling day in southern parts of Lincolnshire and Norfolk, despite


the brightness. Wednesday to Friday, quite dry, increasing risk of mist


and fog developing by night. I was pulling your leg but there is


a great film on the programme tonight. I am looking forward to


seeing it. It is all interesting. We see you in the city centre next to


the blade. I bet you look even smaller next to that! BBC One at


7:30pm tonight. See you later. New Hull City manager Marco Silva


enjoyed victory after his first It was only the fourth win enjoyed


by City this season but it lifted Our sports reporter Simon Clark has


been looking at the Tigers' chances It is a saying in Portugal but


roughly translates as never say dry and that pretty much sums up whole's


attitude for the Portuguese manager. After falling behind to a penalty to


outstanding goals took them into relief. The third goal had a bit of


luck about it but it was enough to lift them from the bottom of the


people. I hope we can be stronger for the


Premier League games and I are happy with the players and what I saw in


the dressing room, I saw them smile this is important for me. We have


done a lot of stuff on training ground tactically on and off the


ball some people go onto the pitch knowing exactly what is required of


us. One former player noticed some subtle changes with Marco Silva's


tactics. They are doing different things at set pieces. The first


corner on Saturday was a one and he got the shot away and defensively


they are now zonal marking. They have key home games coming up and


points games against these teams are critical for survival for Marco


Silva and his team. Much depends on what kind of squad he has after the


transfer window closes and with the West Bromwich Albion bid ?10 million


for Jake Livermore. Scunthorpe United are within a point


of League One leaders Sheffield United after a 2-1


win at Northampton. The Iron went ahead with a first


half goal from Kevin van Veen Top scorer Josh Morris scored


the winner seven minutes from time with his third goal


in as many games. Grimsby Town suffered their


heaviest defeat under manager The Mariners lost 3-0 at home


to Exeter City and have now dropped to 11th in League two,


four points off the top seven East Yorkshire tennis player


Kyle Edmund will play He'll face Colunbian Santiago


Giraldo, the world number 91, in the first round of the mens


singles. A ?2 million entertainment


venue in Lincolnshire is being demolished -


just six years after it was built. Grand Central, which included


a nightclub, bar and office space, was built in 2011 but shut


its doors last year. It'll be replaced by a new complex


which will include a ten pin bowling The top floors were pretty much


empty and it was mainly the bottom thought that was used and the second


floor, the rest was mostly empty. It did not seem to attract anyone. If


you walk past you did not feel that you wanted to go in there. It is


people lives and jobs that have gone, there is flats at the back


that have gone which is a shame for anybody. It came as a surprise when


it had to close and everyone was a bit concerned but we have now got


the future to look forward to and it will be redeveloped which caused


along with all the other redevelopment is taking place and I


am very optimistic for the future. More than 11,000 people have visited

phone boxes known as the K6 were commissioned by the Post Office


in 1936 to commemorate the They were put in virtually


every town and city. But in Hull they were painted cream


and without the crowns, But with the rise of mobile


phones so came the fall in the use of public phone


boxes and in 2007 thousands were taken out


and But now the old-fashioned


K6 cream version are part of the city of culture year


as an iconic symbol of Hull. We were approached


by the City Council as part of the public realm work to see


if we had some of the iconic K6 kiosks we could put


in the city centre and we were able to do

us have used a pay phone, and in some places like Utterby

outlived their usefulness. But in Hull it seems,

temperatures up to six Celsius. Would you be happy to pay for the


NHS? It's the governments deliberate


running down of the NHS The only reason they are doing


that is so they can sell it off." Steve, 'I would just


rather pay an extra penny or two on my income tax.'


Alison, 'There should be a charge for failing


to attend outpatient appointments. If someone knows they won't be able


to attend, they should have the courtesy to ring and change


or cancel the appointment. This would mean that the hospital


can offer the appointment to someone else who is waiting to be seen.'


Margaret, 'Definitely not! After working until aged 65 paying


National Insurance and having very few major calls on the NHS,


why should I?' Steve, 'I pay more for a coffee each


day than I do in NI contributions, so, yes, I'd be happy to pay


for my appointments.' Bob, 'We pay for NHS dental


treatment, so why not We will have more on this on whether


we should pay the NHS at 10:30pm tonight. Join me then, if you can.
