Good evening, and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:00.:00:00.

Jessica Danby died when she was hit by a car trying to overtake

:00:00.:00:11.

Today her mother tells us the driver's jail

:00:12.:00:16.

two years is nothing. At the end of the day he is spending one year in

:00:17.:00:28.

prison one year on licence for killing somebody. That's disgusting.

:00:29.:00:35.

Also on the programme tonight. Radio 1's Big Weekend

:00:36.:00:37.

is going to be in... It's official - Radio 1's

:00:38.:00:39.

Big Weekend will come to the area, as part of City

:00:40.:00:45.

of Culture celebrations. 50,000 music fans are

:00:46.:00:48.

expected to attend. It's really exciting. It'll be good

:00:49.:01:00.

for Hull. Music connects people and it will be awesome that people are

:01:01.:01:02.

there enjoying the music. "They saved his life" -

is helping to preserve And we start the week's weather

:01:13.:01:32.

forecast with a warning of fog. The latest coming up shortly.

:01:33.:01:42.

Teenager Jessica Danby was on her way to work at a coffee

:01:43.:01:47.

shop in Lincolnshire, when she was involved

:01:48.:01:48.

The 19-year-old was driving her moped on the A52 wearing

:01:49.:01:54.

high-visibility clothing, when she was hit by a car coming

:01:55.:01:57.

The driver - who was trying to overtake a lorry in thick fog -

:01:58.:02:03.

But today Jessica's mother told Look North that the two-year jail

:02:04.:02:09.

term he was given just isn't long enough.

:02:10.:02:13.

Our correspondent Vicky Johnson has more.

:02:14.:02:21.

She was a very bubbly character. Very determined. She had an

:02:22.:02:27.

infectious laugh. You always knew where she was. Her mother and

:02:28.:02:34.

stepfather try to remember the good times but it is hard. It's

:02:35.:02:38.

devastating. There is a big hole missing. It's never going to get

:02:39.:02:44.

replaced. Remember when I was in reception we had show and tell. She

:02:45.:02:49.

was in a sub wiring actress and had just completed her first show real.

:02:50.:02:54.

She would have done it. It might have taken her awhile but I know for

:02:55.:02:57.

a fact you would have done it. If she watched you anything she did it.

:02:58.:03:00.

It was a foggy morning much like today when Jess was making her way

:03:01.:03:05.

to her job along the A50 two. She had done all the right things, she

:03:06.:03:09.

was wearing a high viz jacket and her mobile lights were on. But then

:03:10.:03:17.

a driver crashed head on into her in dense fog after overtaking a lorry

:03:18.:03:22.

tractor unit. He had admitted causing date death by dangerous

:03:23.:03:26.

driving and was jailed for two years. At the end the day he has

:03:27.:03:30.

killed somebody. It is as bad as manslaughter in my eyes. He has gone

:03:31.:03:34.

out and made decision to overtake, he knew he couldn't see, and is

:03:35.:03:39.

dangerous. And he should be punished properly for that. At present in the

:03:40.:03:44.

UK, death by dangerous driving has a maximum sentence of 14 years. The

:03:45.:03:47.

Government is currently looking to increase this to life. In 2015 the

:03:48.:03:51.

average length of sentence given was just under four years. A judge has

:03:52.:03:58.

had to take into account the background of the driver, has he got

:03:59.:04:02.

a previous record, what he does for a living, his own family, is he

:04:03.:04:09.

remorseful, and then he has to look at the victim's statement, what are

:04:10.:04:15.

the consequences of the death on the deceased's family. He has to put all

:04:16.:04:21.

that into a balance. The family say everyone should take more

:04:22.:04:23.

responsibility and drive with more care. People go to jail regularly

:04:24.:04:28.

and then still commit the same offences. It is just a lack of

:04:29.:04:32.

concentration for a single second that can be avoided. Who's you think

:04:33.:04:41.

I am? It's 15 months since Jess was killed. Her family say a two-year

:04:42.:04:45.

sentence is simply not enough for a life cut so tragically short.

:04:46.:04:50.

This is one we'd like to hear your thoughts on.

:04:51.:04:52.

Do you think careless and dangerous driving sentences are long enough?

:04:53.:04:56.

Do you think they do enough to reflect the impact it

:04:57.:04:59.

It's one of the biggest free music festivals in Europe,

:05:00.:05:27.

attracting 50,000 fans every year to see the world's biggest

:05:28.:05:30.

And today, it was announced that Radio One's Big Weekend would be

:05:31.:05:35.

coming to this area as part of City Of Culture celebrations.

:05:36.:05:39.

The first major headline acts are confirmed - Kings

:05:40.:05:41.

Of Leon and Little Mix - with more to be announced

:05:42.:05:43.

And this is where they'll be coming to at the end of May.

:05:44.:05:49.

Burton Constable, a normally sleepy rural village just ten

:05:50.:05:53.

Our correspondent Leanne Brown is at Burton Constable Hall now,

:05:54.:06:01.

chosen as the venue for the two day festival.

:06:02.:06:03.

This grade one listed Elizabethan country house is surrounded by 300

:06:04.:06:20.

acres of parkland, so size played a huge part. The city of culture team

:06:21.:06:26.

and Radio 1 did look at other venues in Hull but in terms of logistics,

:06:27.:06:32.

transport and safety, this was seen as the best option. And of course

:06:33.:06:36.

those a list music stars might need somewhere to land their helicopters,

:06:37.:06:41.

and they might want a BIP area. Our whole 2017 reporter has been looking

:06:42.:06:44.

at the line-up. It's the biggest free

:06:45.:06:47.

ticketed event in Europe. BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend attracts

:06:48.:06:50.

headline acts and music lovers from around the world and just

:06:51.:06:54.

before eight o'clock this morning And this is where it is going to be

:06:55.:07:34.

whole held. Burton Constable Hall. Right now I am still in the exact

:07:35.:07:37.

location where Kings of Leon and little mix will be performing on the

:07:38.:07:42.

main stage. In the background you concede Burton Constable Hall

:07:43.:07:45.

standing tall and proud. Organisers say this was the only location that

:07:46.:07:49.

was big enough locally to cater for the 50,000 people that will be

:07:50.:07:50.

descending on the area in May. We are going to be using roughly 50

:07:51.:07:54.

acres of this and then we have got the main grounds,

:07:55.:07:58.

the riding school block and then What are the logistics for the

:07:59.:08:12.

preparation? It's already started, planning where the fencing will be,

:08:13.:08:17.

whether roadway will be. That will take about eight days to put into

:08:18.:08:21.

place. The two-day music event is coming as part of the city of

:08:22.:08:25.

culture celebrations and for those who hope to get tickets it will be

:08:26.:08:28.

their first experience of on this scale. It's really exciting. I think

:08:29.:08:37.

it'll be good for hole. He's convenient for in hell because we

:08:38.:08:40.

won't have to travel. Music definitely connects people. How good

:08:41.:08:47.

you think this is the city of culture? I think it will be really

:08:48.:08:51.

influential because a lot of artists are coming and a lot of people who

:08:52.:08:55.

see them in the media will want to be a part of that. There is four

:08:56.:08:59.

months to get Burton Constable ready for what will be another top event

:09:00.:09:03.

coming to Yorkshire in 2017. So how will the area cope with

:09:04.:09:16.

thousands of music fans? Around 100 people live in Burton Constable and

:09:17.:09:19.

I've been getting reactions from the local community.

:09:20.:09:23.

Surrounded by meadows and lakes, Burton Constable is the place

:09:24.:09:25.

to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of rural East Yorkshire.

:09:26.:09:29.

Is a real jewel in the crown of East Riding. Probably hidden away to a

:09:30.:09:38.

lot of people in the world. This is opportunity to really showcase what

:09:39.:09:39.

we have in East Riding. But is it ready for

:09:40.:09:40.

an influx of people? It's going to bring a lot of trade

:09:41.:09:50.

to the village. City of culture in Hull is brilliant. A lot of new

:09:51.:09:54.

people coming to see what Yorkshire is all about. It will bring

:09:55.:09:59.

everybody together and it is massive. One local is hoping for

:10:00.:10:07.

some extra trade. There's going to be a lot of mess left afterwards

:10:08.:10:11.

which is good for us. Basically that is what we do.

:10:12.:10:12.

And the stately home isn't new to large events -

:10:13.:10:15.

for the last few years it's hosted the Cornucopia Music

:10:16.:10:25.

They do well they get a good crowd. It's time to go to the next level.

:10:26.:10:33.

In the 60s there were rock festivals. In the main grounds.

:10:34.:10:38.

They've had some big famous brands. They've had big crowds therefore

:10:39.:10:41.

stop It's not unusual for a music

:10:42.:10:44.

The annual Leeds Festival is at Bramham Park is held 12

:10:45.:10:48.

it's no more than an extension of the city. We are as one really. And

:10:49.:11:01.

I don't understand how people sometimes see barriers by S sign on

:11:02.:11:08.

the road saying East Riding or hole. Wirral one big family.

:11:09.:11:08.

As work continues on the logistics, it's hoped that this huge musical

:11:09.:11:11.

event will bring a boost to Hull and the east.

:11:12.:11:16.

More details will be released in coming weeks as to how to get

:11:17.:11:27.

tickets. They are highly sought-after so people are looking

:11:28.:11:30.

forward to aim mention of Burton Constable. It was described as the

:11:31.:11:34.

area's best kept secret. Not any more.

:11:35.:11:41.

One of the organisers of the Big Weekend was asked why they chose to

:11:42.:11:52.

bring it to hole. We've been looking at it for about five or six years.

:11:53.:11:56.

Burton Constable is a fantastic site. There's a huge population of

:11:57.:12:00.

young people in Harlem. We felt they needed access to events such as

:12:01.:12:06.

this. It's not often you see major events such as this in the area. The

:12:07.:12:13.

site and also that factor as well as the fact that there is the city of

:12:14.:12:16.

culture was an obvious reason to look at it. Some people are saying

:12:17.:12:21.

in social media why not actually in Hull? Maybe at the football stadium?

:12:22.:12:29.

We looked at the various sites around the city itself and actually

:12:30.:12:32.

there's a kind of templated if you like of the site that we take to

:12:33.:12:38.

whichever city we go to. And we simply could not fit it into some of

:12:39.:12:43.

the parks that were on offer. The infrastructure at Burton Constable

:12:44.:12:47.

is really spot on. It's a bit out of town but we need to make sure we can

:12:48.:12:50.

replicate the model we take year-on-year. So when will the

:12:51.:12:54.

tickets be available and how do people get them? Were not ready to

:12:55.:13:00.

announce those dates just yet but if they listen to radio one they will

:13:01.:13:06.

find that information. It will be basically going online and

:13:07.:13:10.

purchasing tickets on a first-come first-served basis. And the local

:13:11.:13:14.

people will get the lion's share of the tickets? That is correct. The

:13:15.:13:18.

proportion of the tickets available to the local area is higher than

:13:19.:13:23.

ever you. We always like to give the lion's share to the local community.

:13:24.:13:28.

Exciting times. I am a man of a certain age. Would I enjoy this

:13:29.:13:34.

music? You would love it. You would love it. But we have three artists

:13:35.:13:39.

already announced today, but the other artists on the line-up after

:13:40.:13:43.

nominal. We have some really big... But you won't have me tonight? No.

:13:44.:13:46.

We wish you well with it. We would like your thoughts on this.

:13:47.:14:02.

Is it good news for the area? Are you hoping to get tickets? What you

:14:03.:14:05.

think it will mean the businesses and people in the area? Here's a

:14:06.:14:11.

reminder of the e-mail address and text number.

:14:12.:14:13.

Lincolnshire County Council say they could save ?150 million

:14:14.:14:16.

over five years if they were to become

:14:17.:14:17.

They intend to put the option to a public referendum

:14:18.:14:22.

The County Council leader says it would be more

:14:23.:14:27.

We have confusion over the roads - the county council maintains

:14:28.:14:32.

the road, the council sweeps it -sSo there's all this confusion.

:14:33.:14:35.

Now, frankly, the public don't really care.

:14:36.:14:38.

And we work as best we can together, the county and district

:14:39.:14:41.

We wouldn't need eight chief executives, you

:14:42.:14:46.

wouldn't need eight management teams, you wouldn't need eight of

:14:47.:14:49.

The Government's announced it's going to spend just under

:14:50.:14:54.

?160 million across Yorkshire and the Humber,

:14:55.:14:57.

Flood defences around the Humber will be strengthened, meaning more

:14:58.:15:02.

sites can be used to build houses, offices and factories.

:15:03.:15:06.

Parts of Bridlington, Goole and Grimsby will

:15:07.:15:08.

I'm also announcing ?2.1 million of funding for Goole,

:15:09.:15:13.

which is going to be to create an intermodal terminal,

:15:14.:15:16.

so that's going to bring the sea, the river, the

:15:17.:15:18.

canal, the rail and the road network together, to make it

:15:19.:15:21.

And ?3.5 million to unlock development in Grimsby as

:15:22.:15:25.

Praise the Hull city medical staff after one of the team's players

:15:26.:15:43.

fractured his skull during a game. And calls for dog owners

:15:44.:15:45.

to keep their pets on leads, after a fiendly deer is killed

:15:46.:15:47.

at a nature reserve. Here was tonight's photograph. It's

:15:48.:15:59.

very atmospheric, isn't it? Will you be going to watch the

:16:00.:16:15.

bands? I've never even heard of them. Have you managed to blag any

:16:16.:16:32.

free tickets? Let's look at the next 24 hours. We have a warning of fog

:16:33.:16:39.

and that could be particularly dense later in the night. Extra time will

:16:40.:16:42.

be needed for the commute at the weekend. The weekend looks dry and

:16:43.:16:48.

cold with frost and fog. The fog is largely a problem during the first

:16:49.:16:52.

half of the week. High pressure is dominating yet again. Just noticed

:16:53.:16:59.

the isobars veering round to the South East and that will drag in

:17:00.:17:04.

some very cold air. Temperatures on Thursday might not be higher than

:17:05.:17:09.

one or 2 degrees by the day. Some fog is slow to clear. Just in the

:17:10.:17:12.

last couple of hours thicker cloud has brought the odd spot of rain.

:17:13.:17:16.

That has tended to lift the fog that had not cleared through the course

:17:17.:17:19.

of this afternoon. That band of cloud and the odd spot of rain will

:17:20.:17:28.

clear and we will see Mr and fog becoming widespread later. Because

:17:29.:17:31.

we've had some rain ice could be an issue as well. Watch out on the

:17:32.:17:37.

roads. Lowest rural temperatures down to minus three Celsius. 27

:17:38.:17:49.

Fahrenheit. Here are the sunrises. Some dense freezing fog patches to

:17:50.:17:52.

contenders in the morning. It could be really slow to clear. Eventually

:17:53.:17:56.

most of the fog will clear and we will cease hazy sunshine just like

:17:57.:18:02.

today. That fog will thicken up against tomorrow evening's commute.

:18:03.:18:07.

There will be a warning in place I'm sure by tomorrow evening.

:18:08.:18:09.

Temperatures will come in at 4 degrees where Falkirk persists.

:18:10.:18:17.

Brightening later, very cold wind on Thursday. That is the forecast.

:18:18.:18:23.

The sunrises or sets? You only had one job! Whatever.

:18:24.:18:32.

Prompt action from Hull City's medical team

:18:33.:18:33.

That's the opinion of one leading surgeon, after the Tigers midfielder

:18:34.:18:37.

was stretchered off with a fractured skull during yesterday's game

:18:38.:18:41.

Here's our Sports Reporter, Simon Clark.

:18:42.:18:47.

This is the moment in the first half when Ryan Mason suffered

:18:48.:18:50.

The referee, Neil Swarbrick, recognised the seriousness instantly

:18:51.:18:55.

It was eight minutes before Mason was stretchered

:18:56.:19:00.

from the field and taken to St Mary's Hospital in Paddington.

:19:01.:19:13.

Today a leading neurosurgeon said this saved Ryan Mason from serious

:19:14.:19:26.

injury. We are seen changes in recognising when this serious injury

:19:27.:19:32.

has occurred. If he had been allowed to carry on possibly a worse outcome

:19:33.:19:38.

might have followed. In their latest bulletin, the club's say:

:19:39.:19:48.

The severity of the injury is not common in football and this

:19:49.:19:51.

was the reaction of one former professional on Match Of The Day.

:19:52.:19:54.

I think they realised straightaway how bad this was and our thoughts

:19:55.:19:57.

It's a terrible thing to see on a football pitch.

:19:58.:20:01.

Of course Gary Cahill was just innocently going for the ball.

:20:02.:20:06.

It was a sickening challenge and let's hope he gets back

:20:07.:20:09.

Since Mason was carried from the field, the football world

:20:10.:20:14.

has taken to social media to express concern.

:20:15.:20:18.

Former team-mate Gareth Bale said get well soon, mate, our thoughts

:20:19.:20:21.

We would like to send our best wishes to Ryan Mason

:20:22.:20:29.

And Tigers team-mate Curtis Davies added,

:20:30.:20:33.

thinking of you Ryan Mason, get well soon, mate.

:20:34.:20:39.

Last night Gary Cahill, the Chelsea player involved

:20:40.:20:45.

Mason can expect to make a full recovery from his injury but that

:20:46.:20:48.

could take weeks, even months. Simon is with me now -

:20:49.:20:51.

what's the latest on Ryan Now we know he's talking that is a

:20:52.:20:59.

welcome relief. He's also been able to see her visitors, one of which

:21:00.:21:08.

was the man he crashed into. His family say they've been overwhelmed

:21:09.:21:11.

by the support that they've had in these difficult 24 hours. And now of

:21:12.:21:16.

course everybody hopes he makes a speedy recovery. The long road to

:21:17.:21:18.

recovery starts now and we'll keep you posted all

:21:19.:21:19.

the way through. Hull city have added to their squad

:21:20.:21:28.

with signing of Liverpool midfielder on loan to the end of the season.

:21:29.:21:35.

The Serbian midfielder cost and ?20 million in 2014. He's been on loan

:21:36.:21:40.

to a Portuguese side the first half of the season.

:21:41.:21:41.

People working at a nature reserve in North Lincolnshire say they've

:21:42.:21:43.

been left heartbroken, after a much loved deer had to be

:21:44.:21:46.

Daphne the Deer, as she was nicknamed, had become a popular

:21:47.:21:50.

attraction at the Water's Edge centre in Barton, and was one

:21:51.:21:54.

of the few wild deer there tame enough to interact with people.

:21:55.:21:58.

Daphne was a wild roe deer, but chose to stay close

:21:59.:22:04.

to the visitors' centre at Water's Edge after people

:22:05.:22:07.

Rob is one of the volunteers at the country park who got to

:22:08.:22:15.

It's not very often you can get that close to a deer that is

:22:16.:22:20.

She was our best kept secret round here, because we didn't like

:22:21.:22:24.

A memorial wall in the visitors' centre

:22:25.:22:29.

is filled with tributes from young and old.

:22:30.:22:32.

It's an unusual sight but a measure of this animal's

:22:33.:22:35.

She used to pop her head over the fence and watch us warm up

:22:36.:22:41.

She was unique - I called her "our little lady",

:22:42.:22:47.

I think it's disgraceful and I think people with dogs should be

:22:48.:22:52.

Today vets confirmed that Daphne died

:22:53.:22:56.

This country park prides itself on its open

:22:57.:23:01.

access to dog walkers, but they are being reminded

:23:02.:23:03.

to keep their pets on a lead or under tight control.

:23:04.:23:08.

Most visitors do understand that and appreciate that.

:23:09.:23:11.

But, you know, you get the occasional visitor with

:23:12.:23:16.

their dog who thinks, "my dog's not going to hurt anyone".

:23:17.:23:19.

You never know - when the dog comes face-to-face with an animal out

:23:20.:23:24.

As tributes to Daphne continue tocome in, a ?200 reward is

:23:25.:23:31.

being offered for information that leads to the successful prosecution

:23:32.:23:35.

We'll let you know if there are any developments.

:23:36.:23:50.

It's one of East Yorkshire's best known landmarks,

:23:51.:23:52.

but the materials which make up Beverley Minster require

:23:53.:23:54.

And as Jill Archbold reports, one man has just been given the task

:23:55.:23:58.

of preserving the building for generations to come.

:23:59.:24:05.

We we have one of the main wing doze during the whole of Beverley and on

:24:06.:24:12.

the pains you can see where people over history have decided to leave

:24:13.:24:20.

their mark. The plumber in 1878, some of the past vergers that way

:24:21.:24:26.

here till 1982. This man is just starting to learn about some of

:24:27.:24:31.

Beverley Minster's hidden secrets. We have everything from original

:24:32.:24:35.

tree trunks that they used... The materials which make up this

:24:36.:24:38.

building, ancient stone, timber, glass and led, have now become his

:24:39.:24:43.

responsible at it. The immensity of it was scary. But I live in

:24:44.:24:49.

Beverley, I have done for a while and it is the biggest, most

:24:50.:24:55.

prominent building. I couldn't say no. This working tread wheel is the

:24:56.:25:00.

oldest in the country. Preservation of such medieval features started

:25:01.:25:04.

nearly 800 years ago. The responsibility falls not with the

:25:05.:25:09.

church but with an ancient charity called the Old Fund. Most clergy

:25:10.:25:13.

would tell you they didn't become ordained to become the curator of an

:25:14.:25:16.

ancient building, but in the Church of England that is what we have. Ask

:25:17.:25:19.

anyone about their local church and then tell you how much they love it,

:25:20.:25:23.

even if they don't feel like part of the worshipping community. Looking

:25:24.:25:26.

after a building like this is part of our mission. Hundreds of years

:25:27.:25:30.

ago when it was first built, the only way to get materials up to them

:25:31.:25:36.

roof was left them using the tread wheel. Modern methods may make

:25:37.:25:39.

fixing roofs easier but the challenge of the 21st century is

:25:40.:25:43.

finding the money to do it. More than ?5 million is needed to replace

:25:44.:25:49.

the high roofs. The nearly three decades one man has been doing his

:25:50.:25:53.

best to patch them up. Some of this lead where I'm stood now is over 200

:25:54.:25:58.

years old. It's a full-time job, keeping on top of the leaks on the

:25:59.:26:03.

roof. Obviously, if we get a very heavy rainfall, will go around and

:26:04.:26:06.

inspect on the inside, monitor the leaks. It may be high maintenance,

:26:07.:26:14.

but those who call it their place of work say they are proud to help

:26:15.:26:15.

preserve it for the future. Let's get a recap of the national

:26:16.:26:17.

and regional headlines. The Government refuses to say

:26:18.:26:26.

whether the last test of the Trident missile system went wrong. Labour

:26:27.:26:27.

says it is a cover-up. The teenager killed

:26:28.:26:28.

by a dangerous driver - tonight there are calls for tougher

:26:29.:26:30.

sentences after the driver Tomorrow's weather -

:26:31.:26:33.

Mist and fog patches Most places brightening up

:26:34.:26:36.

later with sunny spells. Cold again with highs

:26:37.:26:41.

around 4C (39F). The subject of tougher sentences the

:26:42.:26:53.

dangerous driving. Nigel says there is no need for the offence of

:26:54.:26:57.

causing death by dangerous driving. It is manslaughter and defendants

:26:58.:27:02.

should be judged as such. Helen says a driver over taking in thick fog

:27:03.:27:06.

should be banned for life. Stephen says I've moved to Lincoln 80s ago

:27:07.:27:10.

and your roads are not the best but the best is driving -- the driving

:27:11.:27:21.

is reckless. And, just briefly, Mary says, it doesn't matter what

:27:22.:27:25.

lifestyle that driver has, nobody in their right mind should overtake in

:27:26.:27:31.

the fog. Thank you for your responses.

:27:32.:27:34.

And thank you for watching all our stories. Have a nice evening. - out.

:27:35.:27:53.

To break someone physically... Agh! ..is not a problem.

:27:54.:27:57.

Nectar of the gods, I'm telling you. Thank you, Colonel.

:27:58.:28:10.

He's definitely battling some demons.

:28:11.:28:12.

If they have a fear of water, God help them.
