Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:00.:00:07.

The gamble that paid off - thousands of steel workers

:00:08.:00:13.

who agreed to a wage cut will return to full pay after helping

:00:14.:00:16.

I have made massive sacrifices and I don't just mean in the pay. It was

:00:17.:00:28.

certainly worth it. A ambulance on the way

to an emergency crashes, A murderous and divided town -

:00:32.:00:34.

how quoting national newspaper stories has put this vicar

:00:35.:00:38.

in the headlines. More than ?100,000 could be spent

:00:39.:00:41.

on a special machine to blast chewing gum

:00:42.:00:43.

from Hull's new paving. I have literally walked around for

:00:44.:00:58.

two minutes and found nearly 100 pieces of chewing gum on the ground

:00:59.:01:04.

in Victoria Square. Some bitterly cold air on the way tomorrow.

:01:05.:01:08.

Probably the coldest day of the winter season so far. Join me later

:01:09.:01:10.

for the forecast. A gamble has paid off for hundreds

:01:11.:01:21.

of Scunthorpe steelworkers, who last year agreed to take a pay

:01:22.:01:24.

cut in order to ensure the long term That's according to new owners

:01:25.:01:28.

British Steel, who today announced that not only are they in profit,

:01:29.:01:31.

but soon they'll reverse the three per cent pay cut

:01:32.:01:34.

as fortunes improve. It comes as the company,

:01:35.:01:36.

who only took over seven months ago, announced dozens more jobs

:01:37.:01:39.

at the plant. Our Business Correspondent Leanne

:01:40.:01:41.

Brown is at the steelworks now - It doesn't seem long ago since I was

:01:42.:02:14.

here talking about job losses but British still managed to turn it

:02:15.:02:15.

around. -- British steel. It was a misty murky start,

:02:16.:02:23.

but there was nothing gloomy about today for workers

:02:24.:02:25.

at British steel. It was a gamble for the unions to

:02:26.:02:27.

agree a pay cut but it paid off... There is pride in wearing

:02:28.:02:32.

the British Steel logo. There is pride working

:02:33.:02:34.

for British Steel. Everybody is in an upbeat mood

:02:35.:02:36.

and I don't just mean on the works, in the town,

:02:37.:02:39.

in the communities, everybody's upbeat about the success story of

:02:40.:02:41.

British Steel. It's their cost saving measures and

:02:42.:02:58.

Panther is one still far Hinkley point that the cell to turn things

:02:59.:03:03.

around. There are also making steel for Algeria.

:03:04.:03:12.

We thought that was just one central commercial

:03:13.:03:14.

organisation and it was just one approach, yes.

:03:15.:03:16.

As you know we have been splitting it inbetween

:03:17.:03:18.

the four major products, the rail business, the rough

:03:19.:03:21.

The more bridges, the more skyscrapers, or whatever,

:03:22.:03:24.

It's their cost saving measures and contracts like this one -

:03:25.:03:39.

providing steel for accommodation at Hinckley point power station

:03:40.:03:41.

in Somerset that's helping to turn things around.

:03:42.:03:43.

-- They're also making rail track for projects in Algeria and Italy.

:03:44.:03:45.

It doesn't seem long ago since I was here

:03:46.:03:49.

There's been concern about the future of the Scunthorpe steel

:03:50.:03:51.

In October 2015 owners TATA announced 900 job losses.

:03:52.:03:55.

In April 2016 Uk-based investment firm Greybull Capital began

:03:56.:03:57.

negotiations to take over the company with a promise to invest

:03:58.:03:59.

Then In June they officially took over - naming

:04:00.:04:03.

And today came announcements of positive financial results,

:04:04.:04:06.

with plans to reverse pay cuts and create more jobs.

:04:07.:04:08.

With trainee and admin roles available the company

:04:09.:04:10.

It's their cost saving measures and Panther is one still far Hinkley

:04:11.:04:14.

Coming from a customer service background that could help me. I'm

year. The company still has a long way

:04:22.:04:25.

to go but it's a promising start The industry still faces many

:04:26.:04:38.

challenges and as well as continuing to fund new projects around the

:04:39.:04:41.

world -- secure new projects the company needs support the Government

:04:42.:04:45.

and says it wants assurances that British Steel will be used and UK

:04:46.:04:50.

projects. But they say they are continuing to top of the Government

:04:51.:04:53.

and the fact they were down in London yesterday and they are on the

:04:54.:04:54.

right track. Senior health officials say

:04:55.:05:01.

they can give people in Lincolnshire much better care -

:05:02.:05:08.

but only if big changes are made. small group of protesters

:05:09.:05:12.

were outside a meeting in Sleaford this morning where all proposals

:05:13.:05:15.

were being looked at -- this morning where all proposals

were being looked at - I have asked if we can go and.

services in Lincoln. I've been in and asked

:05:21.:05:35.

if we could go in and They are discussing the options

:05:36.:05:37.

for our health care, You know, they're not actually

:05:38.:05:42.

allowing us to listen in on what those options may

:05:43.:05:45.

or may not be. A "murderous, divided city -

:05:46.:05:48.

and the least integrated That's how a VICAR from

:05:49.:05:50.

St Botolph's Church in Boston The comments came to light

:05:51.:05:53.

after a freedom of information request from a member of public,

:05:54.:05:57.

who says he was outraged. The vicar - Reverend Alyson Buxton -

:05:58.:06:00.

has been defended by her diocese, who says she and her team work hard

:06:01.:06:03.

to celebrate and serve Buxton showing the Princess

:06:04.:06:06.

Royal around Boston But an e-mail about the Princess

:06:07.:06:11.

agreeing to continue her role as the Restoration Trust's

:06:12.:06:14.

patron has shocked a member of contacts I did say we were the most

:06:15.:06:17.

murderous and least integrated in the UK

:06:18.:06:27.

and needed her gravitas, support, I could not believe my

:06:28.:06:30.

eyes when I saw that. The e-mail was discovered

:06:31.:06:35.

by Andrew Hoyle in response to a freedom

:06:36.:06:40.

of information request. This sort of rash

:06:41.:06:51.

accusation that Boston is a murderous nonintegrated town could

:06:52.:06:53.

do a lot of damage in the country But Reverend Buxton could've been

:06:54.:06:56.

referring to newspaper So what do people in

:06:57.:07:02.

the town think about her Over the years it has been borne out

:07:03.:07:06.

that we are, with murders and trouble we have had

:07:07.:07:19.

over the last ten years. I have never had such

:07:20.:07:22.

rubbish in my life. If you go to other

:07:23.:07:26.

towns things happen. When I used to live in Derbyshire

:07:27.:07:30.

we had murders occasionly. But I don't think it's

:07:31.:07:33.

the most murderous town. In a statement the Diocese

:07:34.:07:35.

of Lincoln says, of Boston was making a serious point

:07:36.:07:37.

when pointing to the fact that Boston had already received much

:07:38.:07:41.

negative media attention for some However there is a long

:07:42.:07:44.

association between the Princess Royal and Boston

:07:45.:07:52.

and a good understanding of issues facing the town and the parish

:07:53.:07:54.

is vitally I've never really taken a great

:07:55.:07:56.

deal of note about what people write in e-mails

:07:57.:08:05.

because the normal population of the town

:08:06.:08:07.

Boston are proud of the Rector and proud

:08:08.:08:09.

of the town and know they are

:08:10.:08:14.

But Andrew is concerned about the impact

:08:15.:08:17.

that Reverend Buxton's e-mail could have.

:08:18.:08:19.

And he's worried that a negative image of Boston has been

:08:20.:08:21.

We'd like to hear your thoughts on this one.

:08:22.:08:24.

Do you think it's unfair for the vicar to face criticism

:08:25.:08:27.

Do you think the words "murderous and least integrated" should have

:08:28.:08:31.

ever been used in correspondence with the Royal Family -

:08:32.:08:33.

Five people have been injured after an ambulance responding

:08:34.:09:05.

to an emergency call was involved in a crash with two cars.The

:09:06.:09:08.

ambulance had its blue lights on when the crash happened,

:09:09.:09:12.

on the A607 at Waddington - at about one O'clock this

:09:13.:09:14.

Our reporter Jill Archbold is live for us now.

:09:15.:09:18.

The A607 has been closed following a serious collision

:09:19.:09:31.

at Waddington with the junction of Vanwall Road.

:09:32.:09:39.

The ambulance was answering 909 call. And was travelling south to

:09:40.:09:55.

the village when it had a collision of two other cars. Four people were

:09:56.:10:00.

taken to the hospital for their injuries and one person predicted

:10:01.:10:04.

the Queens medical Centre in Nottingham at what was described as

:10:05.:10:05.

serious injuries. Four people including the two crew

:10:06.:10:08.

from the Ambulance have been taken A passenger from one of the other

:10:09.:10:11.

vehicles has been taken to the Queens Medical Centre

:10:12.:10:15.

with serious injuries. One of the ambulances was travelling

:10:16.:10:30.

right. When it had a collision. The ambulance was travelling right. If

:10:31.:10:35.

anybody has seen the incident please Collison Silicon find out what

:10:36.:10:41.

happened. This evening the East Midlands Ambulance Service has said

:10:42.:10:45.

it will support the investigation by the police in any way you can. But

:10:46.:10:49.

there has been some good news the last hour and a Lincolnshire Police

:10:50.:10:54.

say that the people involved have not got a serious injuries as was

:10:55.:10:59.

first thought. -- as serious injuries.

:11:00.:11:04.

More than ?100,000 could be spent on a machine

:11:05.:11:06.

to remove chewing gum from the new pavements in Hull.

:11:07.:11:09.

The Hull Daily Mail reports that several methods to get rid

:11:10.:11:11.

of the gum are being trialled by the City Council.

:11:12.:11:14.

Millions of pounds have spent repaving Hull

:11:15.:11:16.

for its culture celebrations - but already it's dotted with gum.

:11:17.:11:19.

They've spent millions on trying to make Hull City centre more

:11:20.:11:23.

attractive with new paving and street furniture.

:11:24.:11:25.

But efforts are being blighted by an old problem - chewing gum.

:11:26.:11:30.

Look down and you'll see sticky white and grey splodges dotted

:11:31.:11:33.

I can't believe we have spent all that money and it's like that.

:11:34.:11:47.

It spoils all the good work that everybody has put into it,

:11:48.:11:50.

There are bins close by, rather than spitting it on the floor,

:11:51.:11:56.

To see how bad the problem is I'm going to do a very unscientific

:11:57.:12:02.

scout around and count the number of chewing gum pieces on the ground

:12:03.:12:05.

As I said, not a scientific approach but I've literally walked around

:12:06.:12:16.

for two minutes and found nearly 100 pieces of chewing gum on the ground

:12:17.:12:21.

And what about the cost of clearing it up?

:12:22.:12:26.

The regeneration of the city centre is costing ?25 million.

:12:27.:12:30.

The average price of a piece of gum is 3p.

:12:31.:12:34.

But every time it ends up on the floor it costs around ?1.50,

:12:35.:12:39.

Normal street cleaning doesn't shift it.

:12:40.:12:45.

So Hull City Council is trialling new machines in the hope

:12:46.:12:49.

A small machine like this one, specifically for gum

:12:50.:13:06.

But one, like this, which will steam clean much larger

:13:07.:13:10.

The council is able to issue ?80 on the spot fines

:13:11.:13:14.

And there's always what Singapore did in the 1990s.

:13:15.:13:17.

And in a statement, Hull City Council said while it's

:13:18.:13:27.

trialling these machines to get rid of gum, it's reiterating its plea

:13:28.:13:30.

to people not to drop it at all - asking them to "take pride

:13:31.:13:33.

Another one I'm sure you'll have an opinion on.

:13:34.:13:37.

Do you think the council should be spending money on this new machine?

:13:38.:13:41.

What do you think when you walk around Hull and see all this chewing

:13:42.:13:45.

Many manufacturers have a part to play with biodegradable gum. -- may

:13:46.:14:01.

be manufacturers. Still ahead on the programme

:14:02.:14:11.

Skegness hits back as it is label what the North Korea -- as it is

:14:12.:14:19.

labelled worse than North Korea in a travel guide.

:14:20.:14:22.

This picture of Boynton village near Bridlington

:14:23.:14:24.

Several e-mails a day telling me that yesterday you were seen eating

:14:25.:14:35.

fish and chips in the sunshine and Bedlington, allegedly working but

:14:36.:14:40.

that does not appear to be. Take that smug look off your face. I was

:14:41.:14:47.

working very hard and the usual questions from everybody. Where is

:14:48.:14:52.

your mates? Reply as it hears no mate of mine. -- he has no mate of

:14:53.:15:03.

mine. It is bitterly cold. The coldest day of winter so far with

:15:04.:15:07.

biting south east winds and there might even be at lead very light

:15:08.:15:15.

slow follies. -- a few very light slow laddies. Into the weekend we

:15:16.:15:19.

get near normal temperatures are back. -- a few light snow flurries.

:15:20.:15:33.

It is pretty grim across Lincolnshire and Northbrook. Skies

:15:34.:15:39.

to the north and largely clear. This cloud will push northwards to the

:15:40.:15:43.

next few hours and envelop all of us with Mr Ness and fog at lower

:15:44.:15:51.

levels. There will be ice. -- envelops all with Mr. Despite all of

:15:52.:15:59.

the cloud 02 minus two Celsius. -- mist. The sun will rise at eight

:16:00.:16:07.

o'clock and the next high water time in Cleethorpes at 41 minutes past

:16:08.:16:12.

four in the morning. Grey and depressing tomorrow with leaden

:16:13.:16:17.

skies. With that cloud the maybe some light snow and the odd spot of

:16:18.:16:22.

drizzle. I can't see there being any brightness at all. You will really

:16:23.:16:26.

notice that south-easterly breeze brings a significant wind chill to

:16:27.:16:33.

come. Top afternoon temperatures are one Celsius for Harle and Grimsby

:16:34.:16:45.

and zero for the West. -- Hull. Looking into Friday it looks dull

:16:46.:16:52.

but a little less cold for the end of the week. Saturday looks dry with

:16:53.:16:55.

some sunshine. I want to do more. Labour MPs from East Yorkshire

:16:56.:17:12.

and Lincolnshire say they WON'T try to stop Britain

:17:13.:17:14.

leaving the EU. It comes on the day

:17:15.:17:16.

the Prime Minister pledged to set-out the government's plans

:17:17.:17:18.

for Brexit in a formal document - All the Labour MPs in our area say

:17:19.:17:21.

they WILL back Brexit when it comes to a vote in parliament -

:17:22.:17:26.

subject to certain guarantees - such as the protection

:17:27.:17:28.

of workers' rights. More from our Political

:17:29.:17:30.

Editor Tim Iredale. Will British workers

:17:31.:17:32.

will enjoy the same rights That question has played a big part

:17:33.:17:34.

in the debate over Brexit. The Government says workers

:17:35.:17:39.

will be protected - Talking down my friend the member

:17:40.:17:49.

for Grimsby 's bill to protect European workers' rights that have

:17:50.:17:54.

been obtained in this country is the real agenda of the Tory party.

:17:55.:17:58.

That's a reference to a bill proposed by the Great Grimsby MP

:17:59.:18:00.

Melanie Onn who wants ensure things like paid maternity leave

:18:01.:18:03.

and protection for agency and part-time workers are guaranteed

:18:04.:18:05.

Here's what voters in her constituency have

:18:06.:18:09.

I am not really thinking they will all disappear. I was all for leaving

:18:10.:18:31.

the EU. I'm actually a director. Actually I am for fool Brexit. --

:18:32.:18:39.

full Brexit. All five Labour MPs in our

:18:40.:18:41.

area say they will vote to trigger Article 50 -

:18:42.:18:44.

that's the mechanism that will formally lead

:18:45.:18:46.

to Britain leaving the EU. But they want certain guarantees

:18:47.:18:48.

from the Government. I will be pressing the Government to

:18:49.:18:56.

get the very best deal possible for my constituents.

:18:57.:18:57.

Conservatives say there's no question of British workers

:18:58.:18:59.

We are increasing people's wages they have more money in the pocket

:19:00.:19:13.

and what we need to do is to not have the Labour Party playing

:19:14.:19:14.

politics with this. The highest court in the land -

:19:15.:19:16.

the Supreme Court - has said parliament must rubber

:19:17.:19:19.

stamp the result of last year's referendum, but none

:19:20.:19:21.

of our MPs look set to vote And Tim is live at

:19:22.:19:24.

Westminster tonight. Are you surprised that

:19:25.:19:29.

all our Labour MPs say they'll vote in favour of Brexit,

:19:30.:19:32.

given the fact that all of them You only have to look at the

:19:33.:19:43.

breakdown of results in the EU referendum. 66% of people in

:19:44.:19:48.

Scunthorpe, a Labour voting area, voted for Brexit and 67% in Harle

:19:49.:20:02.

and 70% in Grimsby. -- Hull. I think it would be a huge error of judgment

:20:03.:20:06.

for any Labour MP to defy the will of their constituents and it seems

:20:07.:20:12.

all MPs from all sizeable boat in favour of Brexit when it comes to a

:20:13.:20:16.

crucial vote on Brexit and House of Commons in a couple of weeks' time

:20:17.:20:19.

and that will help Theresa May go to the rest of Europe with a clear

:20:20.:20:23.

mandate and finally say to them that we are out.

:20:24.:20:30.

We've had a big response to our story about Martin Hill, the leader

:20:31.:20:33.

of Lincolnshire County Council, who wants to hold a referendum

:20:34.:20:35.

to scrap seven district councils - and replace them with a unitary

:20:36.:20:38.

authority for the whole area.Brian says: "The County Council has been

:20:39.:20:42.

promising to repair footpaths in our area for over

:20:43.:20:45.

What would they do to the rest of the county if they were in

:20:46.:20:55.

This from Karen: "Why don't we get rid of Lincolnshire

:20:56.:20:58.

County Council and give powers to local councils?

:20:59.:21:05.

It could reduce taxes, increase wages for council workers,

:21:06.:21:11.

We will return to it again in a few weeks' time.

:21:12.:21:22.

The Hull City coach says he and his entire team will visit

:21:23.:21:25.

Ryan Mason in hospital in London at the weekend as the player

:21:26.:21:28.

continues his recovery from a fractured skull.

:21:29.:21:30.

The midfielder was injured during the game against Chelsea on Sunday.

:21:31.:21:33.

Ahead of their EFL Cup semifinal match with Manchester United,

:21:34.:21:37.

Head Coach Marco Silva refused to be drawn on weather Burnley had

:21:38.:21:41.

bid ?10 million for Robert Snodgrass.

:21:42.:21:44.

He said the team was focusing on other things:

:21:45.:21:49.

At this moment, the most important we need to support the player,

:21:50.:21:52.

support his family is the most important at this moment.

:21:53.:21:54.

Of course, it is not an easy moment for us, like a team but you need to

:21:55.:21:58.

be strong, to be together and to keep together all the players and

:21:59.:22:10.

support Ryan is the most important at this moment.

:22:11.:22:20.

People in Skegness have reacted angrily to national

:22:21.:22:22.

newspaper coverage linking the seaside resort

:22:23.:22:24.

to North Korea and Syria on a list of the world's WORST

:22:25.:22:27.

It refers to an article written by holiday website,

:22:28.:22:30.

Destination Tips, which describes the town as "a pile of dirt".

:22:31.:22:32.

Those living there have cold it an out of date

:22:33.:22:35.

Improvements are under way in Skegness but they won't come quickly

:22:36.:22:47.

enough to impress one website. That is because Skegness has been listed

:22:48.:22:51.

as one of the worst holiday destinations in the world. But what

:22:52.:22:56.

is particularly stinging is that it has been listed amongst places in

:22:57.:22:59.

countries accused of systematic human rights abuses and others which

:23:00.:23:04.

are war zones and currently experiencing a humanitarian crisis.
