Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:00.:00:10.

The plan to have only one large council for

:00:11.:00:13.

Lincolnshire is criticised by District Council leaders.

:00:14.:00:20.

It is the County Council acted like a rogue council it seems to me

:00:21.:00:26.

because it is not the way we have been doing things recently.

Some dense fog expected over southern parts of Lincolnshire

:00:58.:01:02.

tonight. I will be back later with all the details.

:01:03.:01:16.

A war of words has erupted tonight over a move to scrap the seven

:01:17.:01:19.

district councils in Lincolnshire and replace then with a unitary

:01:20.:01:21.

The leader of Lincolnshire County Council wants to hold

:01:22.:01:25.

a referendum on the proposal - which he claims would save 150

:01:26.:01:28.

I'll be speaking to Martin Hill in a moment.

:01:29.:01:32.

But first, our Political Editor Tim Iredale finds out why some

:01:33.:01:34.

in the county are fiercely opposed to the idea.

:01:35.:01:37.

There are currently seven district councils covering Lincolnshire

:01:38.:01:40.

plus the county council, so is it time to merge

:01:41.:01:42.

The leader of Lincolnshire County Council wants

:01:43.:01:47.

I think the reason we are doing it is because we keep having these

:01:48.:01:53.

conversations all the time about the difficult financial

:01:54.:01:56.

situation all councils are in and having to find ways

:01:57.:02:00.

of saving money, which means difficult decisions.

:02:01.:02:06.

This is a way you can save a good amount of money without affecting

:02:07.:02:09.

At present the district council's provide localised services

:02:10.:02:17.

such as bin collections, housing and planning.

:02:18.:02:19.

The county council is responsible for big budget services such

:02:20.:02:21.

The idea of abolishing district councils in Lincolnshire is likely

:02:22.:02:25.

You know, it is the county council acting like a rogue council,

:02:26.:02:29.

it seems to me because it is not the way we have been

:02:30.:02:32.

We have done it on a collaborative basis.

:02:33.:02:35.

This is a unilateral move by the county council.

:02:36.:02:37.

I think it's the start of their campaign for what they have

:02:38.:02:40.

sought for a long time, which is a county unitary

:02:41.:02:43.

Lincolnshire County Council is highlighting other areas

:02:44.:02:49.

which have abolished their district councils in favour of

:02:50.:02:53.

It's estimated that Cornwall saved ?16 million a year.

:02:54.:02:57.

Durham made ?21 million of annual savings.

:02:58.:03:00.

And it's estimated that Lincolnshire would save around

:03:01.:03:02.

North Hykeham is part of the North Kesteven district

:03:03.:03:08.

so how do people here feel about having all their services

:03:09.:03:11.

delivered by one so-called super council for the

:03:12.:03:13.

I think you would have less say in what goes on locally

:03:14.:03:21.

You know, I think the smaller councils are more geared up

:03:22.:03:27.

to the smaller districts, sort of thing.

:03:28.:03:32.

If we want the council tax down, yes.

:03:33.:03:34.

If the proposal is approved by the county council next month,

:03:35.:03:46.

then a referendum would take place in May on the same day

:03:47.:03:49.

However, the result wouldn't be binding and any final decision

:03:50.:03:53.

on scrapping Lincolnshire's district councils would rest

:03:54.:03:55.

Tim Iredale, BBC Look North, Lincoln.

:03:56.:04:03.

You can have your say in just a moment.

:04:04.:04:08.

I spoke to the leader of Lincolnshire County

:04:09.:04:12.

I asked him why he thought getting rid of the seven district councils

:04:13.:04:16.

If we talk about losing all the councils we all deliver services. It

:04:17.:04:28.

is all about how they are delivered so the front-line people will still

:04:29.:04:32.

be there delivering on the gritters will still be there in the bin

:04:33.:04:35.

collectors and all the rest of it. It is all about reducing the

:04:36.:04:39.

management back-office costs which is what we could do away with it

:04:40.:04:46.

with your councils. The leader of Lincoln County Council has accused

:04:47.:04:49.

the Caddick is an ongoing role because he says you're in a

:04:50.:04:51.

furniture crisis and this is a money driven. -- enough financial crisis.

:04:52.:05:05.

If it can save ?30 million a year without having a financial crisis

:05:06.:05:08.

outed as a responsible not to consider that. How much will it cost

:05:09.:05:14.

for something that is not legally binding? It will be minimal costs

:05:15.:05:17.

because it is held in the same day as County Council elections are no

:05:18.:05:22.

extra cost. It will be a question of the ballot papers and some of the

:05:23.:05:26.

people counting the ballot papers will have to wait for an hour or so

:05:27.:05:32.

longer but that will be at. Even if the referendum voted in favour it is

:05:33.:05:37.

not legally binding. The Government like devolved powers but it is never

:05:38.:05:41.

going to happen. There is a debate going on across the country and in

:05:42.:05:46.

Dorset they are considering going for a unitary status so I think the

:05:47.:05:50.

Government 's position as if there is an local willingness to go for

:05:51.:05:58.

unitary status they will support it. If somebody else were leader of the

:05:59.:06:01.

County Council and you were leader of say North Kesteven you would not

:06:02.:06:13.

say it was a good idea. If we can save 30 million pounds a year and

:06:14.:06:16.

not affect council services at all that is a good idea. John says in an

:06:17.:06:22.

e-mail we are well served by a district councils and we know our

:06:23.:06:27.

councillors. -- Jordan. The only time a seat Councillor Hell is when

:06:28.:06:33.

he is on the door. They're not going to vote in favour. -- the only time

:06:34.:06:43.

I see councillor Martin Hill. We need to at least consider a

:06:44.:06:45.

situation where it can save a lot of money at the same time is not

:06:46.:06:47.

affecting front line services. We want to hear from you on this

:06:48.:07:00.

story, do you think there should be Would you like there to be won

:07:01.:07:12.

unitary authority or to keep the seven councils? Can you say no to

:07:13.:07:19.

saving per year? Would you welcome the idea of a referendum even

:07:20.:07:24.

although it is not legally binding? You have had what he thinks it will

:07:25.:07:37.

cost. -- you have heard. Should we get rid of the seven district

:07:38.:07:41.

councils Lincolnshire and have one authority? Thank you for watching

:07:42.:07:47.

this Tuesday night. Boom time for local toy companies,

:07:48.:07:49.

but there's concern A man from Hull, whose wife

:07:50.:08:03.

was killed in a terror attack in Tunisia, has described the moment

:08:04.:08:06.

he tried to save her by pulling her Jim Windass' wife Claire

:08:07.:08:09.

was shot when a gunman Bruce Wilkinson from Goole

:08:10.:08:13.

and Carly Lovett from Gainsborough were also among the 22 people killed

:08:14.:08:16.

in June 2015. Our reporter Emily Unia has been

:08:17.:08:19.

at the inquest in London today. Emily, what else did Claire's

:08:20.:08:21.

husband Jim say today? He described her as a beautiful and

:08:22.:08:33.

kind-hearted person who always had time for everyone. Jim Windass

:08:34.:08:39.

Described how on the morning of the 26th of June which was his birthday

:08:40.:08:44.

he and his wife had gone to the beach and reliance on loungers when

:08:45.:08:47.

he had wanted that were firecrackers and he then realised it was gunfire

:08:48.:08:52.

and he needed to act. He knew that player was not a runner 's only

:08:53.:08:56.

tried to drag of the sunbed and sometime during that action hitting

:08:57.:08:59.

a stand a bullet had struck. When the gunmen had gone he checked out

:09:00.:09:03.

and you realise was no pulse so he said I close the rise. -- I closed

:09:04.:09:08.

her eyes. Did we learn any more

:09:09.:09:10.

about what travel advice had been Jim Windass Described a booking is

:09:11.:09:20.

holidays at Thomsons and hulls and 70 in player had been to Tunisia

:09:21.:09:29.

before. He said at no time staff mentioned the security situation in

:09:30.:09:32.

Tunisia are at the Foreign Office website and he said that if the

:09:33.:09:36.

enormity would have gone somewhere else. Without any doubt of somebody

:09:37.:09:39.

at Albany was a chance of a terrorist situation I would not have

:09:40.:09:43.

gone there,. -- if somebody had told me. When asked by the barrister if

:09:44.:09:52.

he had seen documents with travel advice he said he had not. And so

:09:53.:09:58.

they booked again. The trial is expected to last another six weeks.

:09:59.:10:06.

The parents of a 12-year-old girl who could bleed to death

:10:07.:10:09.

from a bruise say they've had to remove her from school in Hull

:10:10.:10:12.

It's claimed Crystal Pugh, who's a haemophiliac,

:10:13.:10:20.

was repeatedly hit by pupils at Kingswood Academy

:10:21.:10:22.

The school says it has procedures in place to deal with incidents

:10:23.:10:26.

of bullying and a health plan to support Crystal

:10:27.:10:28.

But her parents say the school has let her down.

:10:29.:10:31.

For the family the kitchen now doubles as a classroom. Until

:10:32.:10:43.

yesterday 12-year-old Crystal Pugh and her sister were pupils at

:10:44.:10:47.

Kingswood Academy in Hull but now her parents have decided is not safe

:10:48.:10:53.

for Crystal to stay. We have taken out of school because she is getting

:10:54.:10:58.

physically and verbally and emotionally bullied. They said it

:10:59.:11:01.

for years now but nobody 's done anything about it. I guess we just

:11:02.:11:10.

get worse every day. Crystal Has haemophilia A, a potentially fatal

:11:11.:11:12.

disease that prevents blood from clotting. She could die. If they are

:11:13.:11:19.

punching in her robes and her kidneys we do not know they have

:11:20.:11:23.

damaged her kidneys and her spleen. There are too many bodies at school

:11:24.:11:28.

and are giving the same punishment that they get for a lesser offence.

:11:29.:11:32.

It is ridiculous. The headmaster Dale Jackson did not want to be

:11:33.:11:36.

interviewed Betty sent a statement saying the school has zero tolerance

:11:37.:11:40.

of bullying and incidents dealt with effectively. He also said that he

:11:41.:11:49.

and other members of staff have met with the honour of various occasions

:11:50.:11:56.

and they have a support plan. -- met with the Pugh family. Crystal Says

:11:57.:12:04.

her life is much better than she has left. I used to have stressed there

:12:05.:12:10.

are now since I have left it as mean much better. Crystal 's parents say

:12:11.:12:14.

the system let her down. A man has been jailed for life

a quarter of their UK branches. Today it announced
