Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:00.:00:07.

The death of a four-year-old from Grimsby leads to an investigation

:00:08.:00:11.

into the safety of children around the country.

:00:12.:00:25.

Money to help Hornsea attract more visitors,

:00:26.:00:26.

but some have concerns about flood protection.

:00:27.:00:39.

It is just about making sure that all those procedures are followed so

:00:40.:00:49.

no children are left in danger. The government's communities minister

:00:50.:00:50.

says there is cash for flood And it looks like it will be a cold

:00:51.:01:02.

and frosty week. It will continue into next week. I will be back later

:01:03.:01:03.

in the programme. There's going to be an investigation

:01:04.:01:12.

into how children will be protected across the country,

:01:13.:01:16.

following the death of a four year Poppy Widdison died

:01:17.:01:18.

after being fed drugs Yesterday they were both jailed

:01:19.:01:22.

for thirteen years for child But there's concern that social

:01:23.:01:31.

services in North East Lincolnshire aren't doing enough to protect

:01:32.:01:38.

vulnerable children like Poppy. She was only a little girl

:01:39.:01:40.

but she was born addicted to drugs, and during her short life

:01:41.:01:49.

was let down by many people. Today, the family court concluded

:01:50.:02:02.

Poppy died after being shaken. The report also showed that she had

:02:03.:02:06.

eaten and been exposed to drugs such as heroin, methadone, cat in and

:02:07.:02:08.

sedatives. -- Ghetto mean. Yesterday, her mother Michala Pyke

:02:09.:02:12.

and her former boyfriend John Rytting were each told they'll

:02:13.:02:14.

spend 13 years in prison for child But now questions are being asked

:02:15.:02:18.

as to how Pyke and Rytting - both heavy drug users -

:02:19.:02:22.

could have been so cruel to Poppy without health and social services

:02:23.:02:25.

in North East Lincolnshire knowing. Yesterday Poppy's family

:02:26.:02:27.

on her father's side said services should have spoken

:02:28.:02:29.

to them more. Whilst we as a family do not blame

:02:30.:02:43.

social services will Poppy's death, we acknowledge there were failings

:02:44.:02:46.

on her part -- their part. One failing was a lack of engagement

:02:47.:02:51.

with Poppy's father and asked, the extended family. We had read the

:02:52.:02:55.

service Case review, and a lot of information is new to us.

:02:56.:02:56.

Poppy was born addicted to heroin because of her mother's addiction.

:02:57.:02:59.

No robust protection plan nor parenting assessments were made.

:03:00.:03:01.

There were "meetings" concerning Poppy, but drugs services

:03:02.:03:05.

Her parents separated and Poppy lived mostly with her mother.

:03:06.:03:11.

When she was three, a relative said Pyke was smoking

:03:12.:03:17.

But social workers weren't concerned.

:03:18.:03:20.

In fact, they never even asked Pyke if this was happening.

:03:21.:03:25.

They didn't know Pyke and Rytting were in a relationship or that

:03:26.:03:28.

A week before she died, Poppy stopped going to nursery.

:03:29.:03:31.

The staff wanted to talk to Pyke about it but

:03:32.:03:33.

Poppy died before another one could be made.

:03:34.:03:38.

So what confidence can we have in services

:03:39.:03:39.

I have met with social services this week, and I know that there is a

:03:40.:03:52.

really strong commitment to making sure that tragedies like this do not

:03:53.:03:56.

happen, and over the last two years, there have been significant changes

:03:57.:03:59.

in the local authority in the way that things are done, and it is just

:04:00.:04:03.

about making sure that all of those procedures are followed all the time

:04:04.:04:06.

so that no children are left in danger.

:04:07.:04:09.

Today, the Childen's Commissioner for England said:

:04:10.:04:26.

Over the past two weeks, the BBC has made repeated

:04:27.:04:30.

requests for an interview with North East Lincolnshire

:04:31.:04:32.

Safeguarding Children's Board for an interview.

:04:33.:04:35.

So far they've refused all our approaches but they insist

:04:36.:04:37.

they'll keep working to try to ensure something like this

:04:38.:04:40.

A man from Cleethorpes has been sentenced to 14 years in prison

:04:41.:04:49.

after admitting sexual offences against a girl under the age of two

:04:50.:04:55.

Twenty-eight-year-old Callum Bedford from Lairgate Place in Cleethorpes

:04:56.:05:01.

admitted a number of offences last year including taking part

:05:02.:05:04.

in adult sexual activity with an 18-month-old girl.

:05:05.:05:09.

He was identified as part of an international operation

:05:10.:05:13.

against people making and distributing indecent images

:05:14.:05:16.

A court has heard that blood matching that of a murder victim

:05:17.:05:24.

was found on clothing recovered from the home of the man

:05:25.:05:26.

60-year-old Fiona Southwell was stabbed 19 times at Grange Farm

:05:27.:05:32.

Today the jury at Hull Crown Court heard that her DNA matched

:05:33.:05:39.

bloodstains on a pair of jeans discovered in the bedroom of

:05:40.:05:43.

Mr Edwards denies murder and the case continues.

:05:44.:05:50.

Parents in Hedon have been advised to accompany their children

:05:51.:05:52.

to school today or get them to walk in groups after an attempted attack

:05:53.:05:56.

The 11-year-old was pushed over by a man

:05:57.:06:02.

on George Street while on the way to Hedon Primary yesterday morning.

:06:03.:06:05.

She ran away and police say she wasn't harmed.

:06:06.:06:08.

The school and another local primary say they contacted parents

:06:09.:06:11.

Well, I just feel that obviously the children, if you can't walk on your

:06:12.:06:26.

own, it's a bit of a sad situation. My grandchildren are all accompanied

:06:27.:06:32.

there by their grandma or dad. There is anyone that goes by herself

:06:33.:06:35.

up to Preston, and I told her not to go by herself, and try to metres on

:06:36.:06:37.

the way home from school. An East Yorkshire MP,

:06:38.:06:40.

who's also a communities minister, says the town of Hornsea can only

:06:41.:06:42.

benefit from a government grant which is aimed at revitalising

:06:43.:06:45.

the British coastline. Andrew Percy, who's the MP

:06:46.:06:47.

for Brigg and Goole, says the ten thousand pound grant

:06:48.:06:49.

will help draw up a plan for economic growth and job

:06:50.:06:52.

creation in the area. It comes just a week after part

:06:53.:06:55.

of the town's flood defences were breached by the tidal surge

:06:56.:06:57.

and some businesses suffered How well has the town recovered

:06:58.:07:00.

since the tidal surge? Well, Peter, the sea is relatively

:07:01.:07:24.

calm this evening. Well behind the town's sea defences tonight, and it

:07:25.:07:27.

is hard to believe it was just a week ago that where I am standing

:07:28.:07:31.

with absolutely covered in sea water. Today, government minister is

:07:32.:07:34.

here in the town, talking about the future and jobs and what is next for

:07:35.:07:39.

Hornsea, but here on the seafront, many businesses are just trying to

:07:40.:07:45.

get back to profits. The water came all the way into the

:07:46.:07:52.

front takeaway, all the way through, it came into the restaurant at the

:07:53.:07:54.

front... A week since the waves washed

:07:55.:07:55.

into this fish and chip shop, its owners are still

:07:56.:07:58.

accessing the damage. And, you know, we have never ever

:07:59.:08:06.

shut down. We are a seven day a week family, working. And it is just

:08:07.:08:10.

devastating to us. It wasn't just businesses but homes

:08:11.:08:11.

that were flooded as the towns sea Today, by much calmer seas,

:08:12.:08:14.

the government's communities minister announced money to help

:08:15.:08:17.

this town regenerate, and offered reassurances that

:08:18.:08:19.

there's cash to protect the town You have to look at it as not one or

:08:20.:08:33.

another. We are very capable. There is plenty of money to do both, as I

:08:34.:08:38.

have said, because we have put this funding together for coastal

:08:39.:08:40.

defences and we are also spending record amounts of money on flood

:08:41.:08:42.

defences. Ten thousand pounds will

:08:43.:08:42.

help to create a coastal community team who will develop a plan

:08:43.:08:45.

for Hornsea's economic growth. We need to think outside the box, so

:08:46.:08:54.

that when you visit Hornsea with your children and they are playing

:08:55.:08:57.

on a grassed area, they need to have something to do and to interest

:08:58.:09:02.

them, and for you to say, when you leave Hornsea, my, we have enjoyed

:09:03.:09:04.

the day. And other business owners say people

:09:05.:09:05.

need to be encouraged I think every small market town or

:09:06.:09:14.

seaside town, regeneration is essential to keep is all going,

:09:15.:09:18.

really. All the small traders, we need all the help we can get.

:09:19.:09:20.

Whilst some in this town will start making plans to create

:09:21.:09:22.

jobs and increase trade, the Environment Agency continue

:09:23.:09:24.

to make it their job to investigate how and why Hornsea fell

:09:25.:09:27.

Well, just because Hornsea now has a coastal community team, and that

:09:28.:09:41.

?10,000, as a town, it has not been promised any more money. They just

:09:42.:09:44.

came up with a plan of how they would like to spend extra government

:09:45.:09:48.

funding. They now go up against the coastal towns, the likes of

:09:49.:09:51.

Bridlington and Cleethorpes, and make kids to get money from a much

:09:52.:09:56.

bigger part, and they will of course have much competition even just here

:09:57.:10:02.

in the east coast. -- make bids. But today, it was promised that there

:10:03.:10:05.

are millions of pounds of funding available in a pot.

:10:06.:10:10.

When he very much. -- thank you very much.

:10:11.:10:14.

And of course, we wish the Coastal Communities Team the best with their

:10:15.:10:18.

work. We will follow that story and bring you any ideas or plans.

:10:19.:10:19.

Network Rail has admitted it should have consulted with disability

:10:20.:10:22.

groups before submitting plans for a new footbridge over a level

:10:23.:10:24.

Campaigners have criticised the company after a lift wasn't

:10:25.:10:28.

included in the bridge over a railway line.

:10:29.:10:31.

A public consultation is now underway and a decision will be made

:10:32.:10:34.

Some people might not want to go up in a lift and crossover. But when it

:10:35.:10:47.

is cold like today, and the sun is out, you want to get to your

:10:48.:10:53.

destination as quick as possible. So again, it is about having a choice.

:10:54.:10:56.

I don't think is acceptable in this day and age for disabled people to

:10:57.:11:01.

be forgotten. It is disappointing and similar levels, first, that they

:11:02.:11:04.

are not doing anything to make it accessible, but the second and

:11:05.:11:06.

probably most important thing is that disabled people have just been

:11:07.:11:08.

forgotten. I know people will have a view on

:11:09.:11:12.

this one. We will be asking for your comments and just a moment.

:11:13.:11:13.

Earlier I spoke to Nick Sandham from Network Rail.

:11:14.:11:15.

I started by asking whether he thought this

:11:16.:11:17.

was an own goal for Network Rail - planning a bridge

:11:18.:11:19.

We do, and firstly, I would like to apologise to the disability groups

:11:20.:11:32.

in Lincoln for not contacting them properly as we should have done. It

:11:33.:11:35.

was not the right thing to do. We have learned from that and we'll do

:11:36.:11:38.

that better in the future. But why did you get in touch, and

:11:39.:11:41.

why did you actually need to tee why did you think planning a bridge

:11:42.:11:45.

without disability access in 2017 was acceptable?

:11:46.:11:49.

We did try to get in touch with the disability group.

:11:50.:11:52.

No, you try to get in touch with one group and none of the others. They

:11:53.:11:54.

didn't hear from you. We did try to get in touch with a

:11:55.:11:57.

group in Lincoln, as you said. We did not get a response, but...

:11:58.:12:01.

You did not get a response, because they were defunct. It took as 30

:12:02.:12:05.

minutes to find that out. You did not bother.

:12:06.:12:14.

That is right. We should have done better, we learned from that and

:12:15.:12:16.

will apologise for that. So, my original question, why didn't

:12:17.:12:18.

he was acceptable to build a bridge in 2017 without a lift you macro we

:12:19.:12:21.

have worked with our partners in Lincoln and two bridges.

:12:22.:12:24.

I am not talking about the others. Enter about this one. What you are

:12:25.:12:26.

really saying is, if you are disabled, you are going to have to

:12:27.:12:29.

stand and wait at the level crossing. It is as simple as that.

:12:30.:12:31.

On this bridge in particular, we have worked with our partners on it.

:12:32.:12:34.

The level crossing and footpath alongside it will remain open, that

:12:35.:12:37.

is true. We think there is a footpath going to be built between

:12:38.:12:41.

the footbridge and the other one on the High Street, which will allow

:12:42.:12:43.

flat access across both the railway and by footpath to the bridge would

:12:44.:12:46.

lift. Many people will not see that is

:12:47.:12:48.

good enough. Tanni Grey-Thompson said things like this should be

:12:49.:12:53.

excessive or from the start. Not waiting for an add-on of money. --

:12:54.:12:56.

accessibility on the start. The problem in this case was that

:12:57.:12:59.

there were no funds available to build the iconic bridge that the

:13:00.:13:03.

city of Lincoln wanted. We presented that if you want to go, and this is

:13:04.:13:06.

a solution we have come up with, but we're waiting for the planning

:13:07.:13:09.

hearing to that and will take forward many steps with our partners

:13:10.:13:11.

in Lincoln. So what we're saying is, disabled

:13:12.:13:15.

access with a live district Spencer? For this bridge, it is, but the

:13:16.:13:19.

level crossing remains open, and the footbridge will be built between the

:13:20.:13:21.

two bridges. Do you think the city of Lincoln

:13:22.:13:24.

council will say yes to those plans? We will see what the planning

:13:25.:13:27.

hearing says, but we will take forward the outcome of that with our

:13:28.:13:29.

partners alike we do. Thank you very much indeed.

:13:30.:13:32.

Let us know what you think of this story.

:13:33.:13:34.

Should Network Rail have installed facilities for disabled people

:13:35.:13:36.

as a matter of course? Should it matter how much it costs?

:13:37.:13:47.

As I hinted there, it is not just disabled people, but those who are

:13:48.:13:53.

in firm also, and those with prams and pushchairs.

:13:54.:13:53.

The e-mail is It is 6:43 p.m.. Thank you for

:13:54.:13:56.

watching. Still ahead tonight: As Donald Trump

:13:57.:14:15.

is sworn in as US President, opinion is divided on the impact

:14:16.:14:18.

he might have on people And he was the first Englishman

:14:19.:14:21.

to dance with one of Russia's top ballet companies -

:14:22.:14:25.

now he returns home to be honoured I hope you had a good day. It has

:14:26.:14:28.

been beautiful. Heather Baross took this today

:14:29.:14:43.

of the City Hall bathed in Sunshine Thank you very much indeed for that.

:14:44.:14:52.

Keep your pictures coming in. Another one on Monday about the same

:14:53.:14:58.

time. Kiva Donovan is here, fresh from, my spies understand, filming

:14:59.:15:03.

down a sewer! Don't laugh at me!

:15:04.:15:06.

Did you come across any rats? I don't need to go down a sewer to

:15:07.:15:11.

come across that! I wasn't referring to you! When I

:15:12.:15:15.

was on a shoot, the researchers looked at my Twitter page with all

:15:16.:15:18.

those pictures of you and he didn't know who you were, and he said, here

:15:19.:15:22.

is that weird man you got all over your Twitter page? Thank you, let's

:15:23.:15:26.

have the forecast. I defended you,

:15:27.:15:27.

have the forecast. I defended you, obviously.

:15:28.:15:30.

A cold weekend, chilly, a couple of frosty nights succumb. Some

:15:31.:15:34.

sunshine, but particularly tomorrow afternoon, a lot more cloud around,

:15:35.:15:38.

which could produce a lot more light rain or drizzle in one or two spots.

:15:39.:15:43.

A lot of settled weather to come. I pressure still dominate and it could

:15:44.:15:46.

hang on in there until probably the middle of next week. So a lot of

:15:47.:15:49.

settled weather, but cool weather to come. The return to overnight frost,

:15:50.:15:55.

and perhaps some font to start next week. This is the satellite picture

:15:56.:15:58.

from earlier. You can see how that cloud burnt away from the south.

:15:59.:16:03.

Plenty of sunshine this afternoon, but clear skies this evening the

:16:04.:16:07.

last overnight lead to a bit patchy fog in some prone locations and also

:16:08.:16:12.

widespread frost. A chilly night, particularly in the countryside,

:16:13.:16:15.

where temperatures will be a few degrees below freezing. The sun will

:16:16.:16:20.

rise in the morning had just gone eight o'clock. Setting again at

:16:21.:16:25.

around 1620. These are your high water times for this evening.

:16:26.:16:31.

Tomorrow, cold, frosty start. Some mist and fog might linger, but the

:16:32.:16:35.

best of the sunshine first thing. Cloud already piling in from the

:16:36.:16:39.

east, so it will become more great through the afternoon and there

:16:40.:16:42.

could even be a bit of drizzle and the odd light shower during the

:16:43.:16:46.

afternoon. It will feel chilly, particularly once the cloud has

:16:47.:16:50.

pushed across us. Temperatures struggling up to around 5-6. Feeling

:16:51.:16:54.

chilly out there, and then quite cloudy overnight into Sunday, but

:16:55.:16:58.

some breaks in the cloud, so we could start the day once again with

:16:59.:17:02.

a frost. Sunday doesn't look too bad at all. Dry and bright with broken

:17:03.:17:06.

cloud and some spells of sunshine. Feeling chilly, foggy to start the

:17:07.:17:09.

day is on Monday and Tuesday, but a lot of dry, cool weather.

:17:10.:17:15.

Thank you very much, Keely. Now, opinion is divided tonight on the

:17:16.:17:18.

question of how President Trump will affect our lives here in East

:17:19.:17:19.

Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. Leading figures in the Muslim

:17:20.:17:21.

community have accused Donald Trump of spreading hate with some

:17:22.:17:23.

of the language he used But others say the new US President

:17:24.:17:25.

will boost business for local firms More from our Political

:17:26.:17:30.

Editor Tim Iredale. I will faithfully execute the office

:17:31.:17:47.

of president of the United States. Grimsby -based journalist Nadia

:17:48.:17:51.

Hussain has followed Donald Trump's wrote to the White House with

:17:52.:17:54.

interest. As a woman and a Muslim, she says she was shocked by some of

:17:55.:17:58.

Mr Trump's rhetoric on the campaign trail.

:17:59.:18:01.

The already sexist people are thinking, that's great, I can say

:18:02.:18:04.

these things because he has just said them. And people who are

:18:05.:18:07.

already homophobic or afraid of the other are now feeling, oh, that is

:18:08.:18:11.

wonderful. If the most powerful man in the world can say it, I can say

:18:12.:18:13.

it too. Donald J Trump is calling for a

:18:14.:18:18.

total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.

:18:19.:18:23.

It was that pledge to ban Muslims from entering the United States that

:18:24.:18:26.

led to a petition over here calling for Mr Trump himself to be banned

:18:27.:18:31.

from entering the UK. There was even a debate in Parliament, where a

:18:32.:18:36.

Lincolnshire MP used a word rarely heard in the corridors of power.

:18:37.:18:41.

And if he met one or two of my constituents in one of the many

:18:42.:18:44.

excellent pubs in my constituency, then they mail their they may well

:18:45.:18:50.

tell him he is a wazzock. So is that really have the good

:18:51.:18:53.

people of Louth would describe the new US president? Just like the rest

:18:54.:18:57.

of the world, Donald Trump divides opinion here.

:18:58.:19:01.

I don't know too much about him, but from what I know, I think he is

:19:02.:19:04.

sexist and racist. I think he will cause a lot of chaos.

:19:05.:19:08.

I am easy with it. The people going round in a panic saying, Brexit,

:19:09.:19:14.

Trump, the world has come to an end, no it hasn't. It has taken a rather

:19:15.:19:18.

We have a good relationship as a country with the US. I think our

relationship will strengthen, particularly in the Prime Minister's

going to be incredibly important. So, it is fair to say the jury is

weekend's Sunday Politics. Guests include the Northern

Powerhouse minister Andrew Percy. Thanks to everyone who got

in touch after we told you that the Humberside Police

:20:11.:20:20.

and Crime Commissioner was concerned by a sharp rise in the level

:20:21.:20:22.

of crime in the area. Keith Hunter says he wants more

commission was in the studio with me last night and had some strong

words. Thanks for the comments after the programme snipe. Here are a few

:20:43.:20:43.

of them. Howard in Waltham blames

:20:44.:20:55.

the cuts in police numbers. Thank you very much indeed for

those. A father and son have won compensation from Humberside Police

:21:19.:21:21.

after being unlawfully turned away from attending a football match at

:21:22.:21:25.

Grimsby town last year. They were on board a coach of Wrexham supporters

:21:26.:21:31.

travelling to a league game in March, but were told to return to

:21:32.:21:35.

Wales amid concerns of disorder. Our sports reporter Matt Dean is here

:21:36.:21:36.

with us in the studio now. What happened?

:21:37.:21:42.

Well, this coach was stopped by Humberside Police at a service area

:21:43.:21:47.

on the A180, about half an hour away from Cleethorpes, where they were

:21:48.:21:50.

heading to Grimsby to see their team in action. They were held for about

:21:51.:21:53.

an hour. No arrests were made, but they were ordered to turn around and

:21:54.:21:58.

head back to Wrexham. One supporter on board the bus had recently

:21:59.:22:00.

undergone hip replacement surgery. I got on the coach because I

:22:01.:22:07.

couldn't have sat in a cramped car. The lads were helping me on and off

:22:08.:22:11.

the bus with my crutches after being cooped up in the house for two

:22:12.:22:15.

weeks. I thought it was a day out. I didn't think I was any threat or any

:22:16.:22:17.

danger. How many fans were involved in this

:22:18.:22:22.

incident? Mark, who we heard from there, was one of around 60

:22:23.:22:28.

supporters on the bus, around 35 of whom were issued with dispersal

:22:29.:22:32.

order notices. They were given by police when they think people will

:22:33.:22:36.

behave in an anti-social way. Compensation has been given to two

:22:37.:22:39.

supporters who don't wish to be identified or say how much they have

:22:40.:22:43.

been awarded, but it is hoped that football fans everywhere will now be

:22:44.:22:44.

treated differently because of this. We are still seeing too many

:22:45.:22:53.

examples of harsh treatment of fans, and unfortunately, this is

:22:54.:22:56.

indicative of just that. To us, it was more or less immediately obvious

:22:57.:22:59.

that the police had overreached their powers and effectively had

:23:00.:23:04.

treated a whole group of people as a problem.

:23:05.:23:07.

The spokesperson for Humberside Police has told us they are except

:23:08.:23:11.

the claimant should do not have been issued with the notices, and say

:23:12.:23:16.

they have put additional training in place for the commanders who make

:23:17.:23:18.

decisions around dispersal orders. Thank you very much indeed for that.

:23:19.:23:30.

Hull City have confirmed that they've sold midfielder

:23:31.:23:32.

Jake Livermore to West Bromwich Albion.

:23:33.:23:33.

The two clubs are understood to have agreed a ten million pound

:23:34.:23:36.

fee for the 27-year-old after previous offers were rejected.

:23:37.:23:39.

Livermore joined the club from Tottenham in 2014.

:23:40.:23:40.

Very good proposal for him. And a very good proposal also when the

:23:41.:23:48.

deal closes. Were we need in these moments is to find one quick price

:23:49.:23:53.

for the player, and we need to find this in the next days, because he is

:23:54.:23:55.

an important player. Hull's pavement fish trail

initial Sun sign, slowly coming over. Temperatures, 5-6.

:26:52.:26:55.

Talking about that planned bridge with no lift, David says, it is

:26:56.:27:03.

quicker for people with or without disabilities to wake the crossing to

:27:04.:27:06.

open than it is to use lifts on the bridge.

:27:07.:27:09.

Alan says, there are stations without disabled access, struggling

:27:10.:27:13.

to fund lifts and ramps, so why are we discussing level crossings with

:27:14.:27:14.

lifts? Karl says, people don't use the

:27:15.:27:19.

bridge on the High Street. I use it, but too many able-bodied people are

:27:20.:27:21.

just too lazy. And finally, Barry says, this is not

:27:22.:27:25.

just an issue affecting those with disability. What about mums and dads

:27:26.:27:29.

with prams? Or the elderly who may not be able to climb stairs? I did

:27:30.:27:34.

mention that when I was talking a few minutes ago. Thank

:27:35.:27:35.

you for all the messages, not just a night, but throughout the week.

:27:36.:27:40.

Have a peaceful weekend and look after yourself. I will see you on

Monday. Good night.
