Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

The headlines from us this Wednesday night.

:00:00.:00:09.

Lincoln City's FA Cup shocker - their historic win over Championship

across the world. And they saw Lincoln City secure

a famous FA Cup upset. The Imps beat Championship side

Ipswich on one of the biggest After years of despair it

has been a remarkable In a moment I'll be speaking

:01:55.:01:57.

to the man behind it all - But first Simon Clark

:01:58.:02:01.

has this report. It's a long, long time since

:02:02.:02:05.

Sincil Bank was as packed as this. 9,000 fans watching a game being

:02:06.:02:08.

beamed across Britain and the globe. A game where former Lincoln

:02:09.:02:13.

manager Graham Taylor was remembered after his untimely

:02:14.:02:17.

passing last week. Lincoln dominated the game,

:02:18.:02:21.

belying their non-league status but the dramatic breakthrough didn't

:02:22.:02:28.

come until moments from the end. There was 10,000 fans screaming down

:02:29.:02:31.

the back of my neck and, you know, I had to stay composed

:02:32.:02:37.

in them moments. Them moments come from every day

:02:38.:02:41.

on the training ground, working hard and, you know,

:02:42.:02:43.

what an atmosphere it was tonight. A great result for Lincoln. They

:02:44.:03:01.

just seem to pull it out the baggage really went for it. Really proud.

:03:02.:03:08.

Every one of those players deserve plaudits of the 9000 who have been

:03:09.:03:13.

here. They go on to the fourth round and play West Bromwich are being

:03:14.:03:17.

that beating the side will take some doing. That's like Albion.

:03:18.:03:21.

The result is further endorsement of the board's decision

:03:22.:03:24.

to employ two schoolteachers as manager and assistant.

:03:25.:03:26.

Danny and Nicky Cowley have transformed this club

:03:27.:03:28.

This cup run has so far earned the Imps ?125,000 in prize money.

:03:29.:03:32.

They've made ?144,000 from TV rights.

:03:33.:03:49.

They've sold tickets worth ?70,000 so

:03:50.:03:50.

with other revenues the club estimate total earnings

:03:51.:03:52.

The fact that last night we had 9000 people today and we are looking at

:03:53.:04:13.

6000 for the next game. It even reached the highest house in the

:04:14.:04:15.

land. Can I join my honourable friend

:04:16.:04:18.

in congratulating Lincoln City on their victory last night

:04:19.:04:20.

and so I think it was a fitting tribute to Graham

:04:21.:04:22.

Taylor that they won that match. 9,000 fans last night

:04:23.:04:34.

and around 6,000 expected for the next home game -

:04:35.:04:36.

the league match against Dover. These are good times

:04:37.:04:38.

indeed at Sincil Bank. Earlier on I spoke with Lincoln City

:04:39.:04:40.

manager Danny Cowley. I asked him how it felt to put

:04:41.:04:43.

the Imps in the national spotlight. It was fantastic TV audience and a

:04:44.:04:52.

great crowd and a night everyone will remember for a long time.

:04:53.:04:56.

Despite having a big crowd there and be on BBC One they did not seem in

:04:57.:05:02.

the least bit nervous. Two games we have now played against Ipswich, a

:05:03.:05:05.

champion team and have gone toe to toe with them and for me we have

:05:06.:05:09.

deservedly come out on top and I am delighted for the players that they

:05:10.:05:13.

have got to the levels they have got to in front of such a big audience.

:05:14.:05:18.

What was going through your mind in the end? That you assume there would

:05:19.:05:22.

be extra time? We were expecting extra time and you are getting ready

:05:23.:05:29.

to prepare your team talk for that moment but thankfully we did not

:05:30.:05:34.

need it. He certainly didn't. You're a schoolteacher who moved to

:05:35.:05:38.

football manager. Unorthodox in itself. Why did you make the switch

:05:39.:05:41.

because this is a precarious old profession? Yes. People often said

:05:42.:05:48.

to me that it's a gamble that Nikki and I both believe in the work ethic

:05:49.:05:53.

and believe in our skill set and when the opportunity come around it

:05:54.:05:57.

was one of you love football like we do it was one we turn down. Does

:05:58.:06:02.

being a schoolteacher help when you're dealing with not a football

:06:03.:06:06.

players Bismarck football players and naughty schoolchildren have some

:06:07.:06:10.

luxuries so I think it is transferable skills that definitely.

:06:11.:06:16.

But we are people's people and enjoy working with people and trying to

:06:17.:06:21.

get the best out of people and will both jobs, have to say that. Think

:06:22.:06:26.

carefully before use and to this question. You split the week between

:06:27.:06:30.

Essex and Lincoln. Which do you like best? I love both. I live in

:06:31.:06:38.

Chelmsford and love link. I have to say since we have moved to Lincoln

:06:39.:06:42.

the people of been fantastic with this and it is a lovely place to

:06:43.:06:45.

live and one that myself and my family we enjoy. Brighton next. Can

:06:46.:06:54.

you do it? We've got confidence from the tee and switch games and have

:06:55.:06:57.

also been inspired by those games and vacations. As Matt the two

:06:58.:07:07.

Ipswich games. And a sureness that in the FA Cup anything is possible.

:07:08.:07:12.

-- it shows in the FA Cup that anything is possible.

:07:13.:07:17.

Were you at the game last night - what did you make of it?

:07:18.:07:21.

How impressed have you been with Lincoln City and

:07:22.:07:23.

If you want to comment or send a message we will have a few before we

routine tests on farms nearby. 15 homes in Scunthorpe

patient at a mental health unit in Scunthorpe.

26-year-old Jamie Reid was not asked to enter a plea.

:08:58.:09:02.

60-year-old Robert McNeil died at the Great Oaks Hospital on Monday.

:09:03.:09:06.

Our health correspondent Vicky Johnson reports.

:09:07.:09:08.

In a brief appearance at Grimsby Magistrates' Court

:09:09.:09:10.

26-year-old Jamie Reed only confirmed his name, date of birth

:09:11.:09:12.

and address in Crowle, North Lincolnshire.

:09:13.:09:14.

He is charged with murdering Robert McNeil in the early hours

:09:15.:09:16.

of Monday morning at Great Oaks, here in Scunthorpe.

:09:17.:09:19.

Both Jamie Reed and Robert McNeil were patients on the Mulberry Ward

:09:20.:09:21.

This unit can look after up to 32 people suffering from acute

:09:22.:09:26.

Some have been detained under the Mental Health Act.

:09:27.:09:42.

A spokeman from the Rotherham, Doncaster and South Humber trust

:09:45.:09:47.

and is co-operating fully with the police investigation.

A 13-year-old has been released on police bail.

A council says it's having to spend thousands of pounds each year

clearing up after travellers but admits it still can't find

:10:26.:10:27.

Authorities have a legal duty to provide temporary stopping places

:10:28.:10:39.

but despite looking at more than 1200 sites North East

:10:40.:10:41.

Lincolnshire Council says it hasn't got anywhere suitable.

:10:42.:10:43.

It's now been told to hurry up and get on with finding somewhere.

:10:44.:10:46.

Some of the 300 tonnes of rubbish it was claimed was left by a group of

:10:47.:10:55.

travellers in three weeks. Then they just dumped their rubbish

:10:56.:10:58.

mainly in that corner at the finish. For farmer Brian Holden

:10:59.:11:01.

from Tetney near Grimsby, Based at ?10,000 bill to clean up

:11:02.:11:08.

this fell the Matfield. I didn't sleep at night,

:11:09.:11:14.

I was always worried about what was going to happen

:11:15.:11:19.

and how I was going In 2015 the group spent three weeks

:11:20.:11:22.

in his field leaving Part of the problem, Brian says,

:11:23.:11:27.

is there are currently no designated sites for travellers in East Lindsey

:11:28.:11:29.

or North East Lincolnshire. I think there definitely ought to be

:11:30.:11:32.

a site where they could go because the police complained

:11:33.:11:35.

even if they had the manpower to move them, there is

:11:36.:11:37.

nowhere to move them to. The sooner they get

:11:38.:11:40.

a site, the better. In the last four years unauthorised

:11:41.:11:42.

traveller sites have been set up 80 The council says it cost it more

:11:43.:11:45.

than ?43,000 to clear them up. It's been told a minimum of five

:11:46.:11:49.

temporary pitches are needed but after looking at more than 1,200

:11:50.:11:52.

possible locations to build them, The issue will be discussed by

:11:53.:11:55.

North East Lincolnshire Council this afternoon and while the travelling

:11:56.:11:58.

community says it hasn't been At a meeting this afternoon North

:11:59.:12:03.

East Lancashire council said they may have defined smaller fields

:12:04.:12:06.

rather than a larger one defined designated stopping sites for the

:12:07.:12:11.

travelling community. If it does not so that's a requirement it rests

:12:12.:12:21.

going against government strategy. The Traveller group says it has

:12:22.:12:27.

obligations it is not fulfilling. There are laws in place saying we

:12:28.:12:35.

must be included when provision for housing is needed. While the

:12:36.:12:38.

travelling committee says it is to be better consulted landowners like

:12:39.:12:41.

Brian say they need to be better protected.

:12:42.:12:48.

Earlier I spoke to Councillor Matthew Patrick from

:12:49.:12:50.

North East Lincolnshire Council, and I asked him if the council

:12:51.:12:53.

No, I don't accept that, Peter. What I accept as this is a very important

:12:54.:13:06.

decision and it is important we make an evidence -based choice and do

:13:07.:13:10.

what is right for the borough. You have looked at 1200 potential sites

:13:11.:13:14.

and out of those you said I'd have those not won a suitable. That can't

:13:15.:13:18.

be right. Those were individual sites. There were a number of sites

:13:19.:13:22.

which were deemed as being too small and that is what the going back to

:13:23.:13:26.

this process to look at a number of individual smaller size as opposed

:13:27.:13:32.

to one bigger site. What about those who say you don't want to find

:13:33.:13:35.

somewhere fined five places are three places because you know the

:13:36.:13:39.

local committee nearby will be unhappy. In other words all you're

:13:40.:13:41.

doing is ducking the issue and kicking it into the long grass. Far

:13:42.:13:47.

from it. There has been a lot of hard work done this over the last

:13:48.:13:49.

two years and when we actually do identify a site we want

:13:50.:13:52.

straightforward as it has to go through the planning process and

:13:53.:13:57.

will be a public consultation. We have spoken to the Traveller

:13:58.:14:00.

community have said you have not spoken to them about what they

:14:01.:14:02.

actually want. That would be the best thing to do, wouldn't it? It

:14:03.:14:08.

would be once we're fat advice on sites going forward. There are a lot

:14:09.:14:11.

of sites to look at so we have some prepared sites based on

:14:12.:14:16.

accessibility and flood risk and also the sensitivities of the local

:14:17.:14:20.

community and can then come forward and take their input on it. In the

:14:21.:14:27.

process ?45,000 has been spent cleaning up unauthorised sites. How

:14:28.:14:33.

long will Traveller site be? I would talk about this year, can you

:14:34.:14:38.

confirm that? The of the process we would hope to have it ready for this

:14:39.:14:45.

year but as you know local land will not necessarily be signed off till

:14:46.:14:48.

December stood as a very long-term process. As far as a traveller

:14:49.:14:52.

committee is concerned and the ball be watching this and be very

:14:53.:14:57.

concerned about the outcome, do you accept you have been drugging

:14:58.:15:00.

inhalers and made a big job out of this? As I said I don't accept that

:15:01.:15:05.

and I think it is very important we get this decision done correctly. We

:15:06.:15:09.

did make a snap decision of where we decide on the site in the next few

:15:10.:15:14.

weeks and then somebody sees a traveller site just across the back

:15:15.:15:19.

garden but I'm not willing to do that is because Peter Leavey tells

:15:20.:15:20.

me off camera. Eyes-mac Peter Levy. Do you think the council

:15:21.:15:34.

are stalling on this one - should they just get

:15:35.:15:37.

on and sort this out? Where should they put

:15:38.:15:39.

the sites though? Would you be happy if it

:15:40.:15:41.

was near your house? On the programme at half past ten

:15:42.:15:50.

tonight we will be talking to a representative of the Traveller

:15:51.:15:51.

community. The block of flats that's being

:15:52.:15:54.

given a City of Culture face-lift. And how Hull's Bee Lady

:15:55.:16:01.

crashed a photo and became Janet took this picture looking

:16:02.:16:04.

towards the River Humber from the Bridge across the River

:16:05.:16:20.

Hull. John says it rained today but we

:16:21.:16:39.

were promised would be dry today by the Welsh weather Wizard at

:16:40.:16:44.

lunchtime. I can't be all things to all people, Peter. It is the fog of

:16:45.:17:01.

the Welsh windbag? Yes. -- fog. It looks calm and settled in all parts

:17:02.:17:07.

will be dry. Look what is happening. Very little. I pressure to is what

:17:08.:17:10.

is today and Friday and Saturday into Sunday. Some changes might

:17:11.:17:15.

introduce just a few breaks in the course of study which means a little

:17:16.:17:19.

bit of sunshine. All the bad weather not for the first time the last

:17:20.:17:21.

romances don't over the Mediterranean. You can see the

:17:22.:17:27.

extent of the cloud. You can the have been. We have had a few breaks

:17:28.:17:31.

across Lincolnshire today and it was a brightness of brightness over

:17:32.:17:35.

North West Norfolk. The many other cities are dry and cloudy and quiet

:17:36.:17:38.

night. There might be the odd spot of light rain and drizzle in places

:17:39.:17:42.

but essentially it is dry and cloudy. Lowest temperatures ranging

:17:43.:17:48.

from actually two Celsius across The Wash. Elsewhere it'll be five or six

:17:49.:17:56.

or seven. For most of us it will be frost free. Sun rises at seven

:17:57.:18:02.

minutes past eight and high water is at 40 minutes past ten in Hull.

:18:03.:18:11.

Boring and nondescript day tomorrow. Some drizzle in places basically

:18:12.:18:17.

drive. You will be lucky to see blue sky because essentially will be

:18:18.:18:21.

cloudy and fairly benign stuff. A light wind and we will see top

:18:22.:18:25.

temperatures ranging from 8 degrees across East Yorkshire and the call

:18:26.:18:29.

of five Celsius around the finance and the Was. Spot the difference.

:18:30.:18:33.

Friday looks grey and Saturday brightening a little later. Sunday

:18:34.:18:39.

looks dry and bright with some sunshine. That's the accurate

:18:40.:18:40.

forecast tonight. I am sure somebody will drop you in

:18:41.:18:54.

with the Welsh windbag on Twitter tonight. You have not told me,

:18:55.:19:01.

Peter, what is going on. Just go away.

:19:02.:19:09.

It was a fixture on the East Coast - entertaining millions

:19:10.:19:11.

But bit by bit Pleasure Island in Cleethorpes is being taken apart.

:19:12.:19:15.

The park closed last year, now some of the rides

:19:16.:19:18.

are being dismantled and sold off overseas.

:19:19.:19:19.

Others are becoming targets for vandals.

:19:20.:19:21.

Where once the sound of laughter and families having fun filled the air

:19:22.:19:37.

that is now an EV silence. Pleasure Island closed at the end of last

:19:38.:19:41.

year and many of the rights will be sold and taken away. It is sad for

:19:42.:19:45.

the owner but she says the company was left with no other option. It

:19:46.:19:53.

would have cost ?2 million and that is the kind of money we did not

:19:54.:19:58.

have. While we have been small expectations are big and that is the

:19:59.:20:02.

kind of thing we could not meet. We have been battling with that for

:20:03.:20:04.

many years and unfortunately we have found ourselves in the position that

:20:05.:20:11.

we have been today. Pleasure Island opened in 1993 and became a huge to

:20:12.:20:15.

this attraction for Cleethorpes. Next week work to dismantle the

:20:16.:20:21.

boomerang, its star attraction will begin. It has been sold to another

:20:22.:20:25.

theme park in Asia. Some of the workers started and this right has

:20:26.:20:28.

been partially dismantled and shipped off to the Czech Republic

:20:29.:20:32.

with it will be refurbished and sold on. It is sad to see the park like

:20:33.:20:37.

this but the majority of the rights here this time next year will be

:20:38.:20:41.

someone else giving someone else fun and entertainment. It just goes

:20:42.:20:47.

round in the cycle. Bonnie is just really friendly. But in one product

:20:48.:20:54.

the park oblivious to the changes at the resident sea lions are being

:20:55.:20:57.

cared for as normal by that trainer before moving to a new home. I was

:20:58.:21:03.

14 when I started and never left so about ten years I have been working

:21:04.:21:07.

here. It is such a shame but I'm happy as well to be the one with

:21:08.:21:14.

them up until the last days at Pleasure Island. That is quite a

:21:15.:21:17.

nice thing to know in the back of my mind. Recently there has been a

:21:18.:21:21.

daily battle with vandals and managers are appealing for those

:21:22.:21:26.

responsible to stop. It is not yet known what will happen to the site

:21:27.:21:29.

when it is clear that Melanie hopes it will have a sustainable future

:21:30.:21:33.

that will provide more jobs in the result. -- resort.

A Hull council estate has been turned into a light show
