Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.


Ambulances in East Yorkshire will take longer to reach patients -


unless they're in a life or death situation.

Ambulance response times will be relaxed for some urgent calls


in East Yorkshire as bosses try to reduce pressure


The Yorkshire Ambulance Service will run a pilot which will see some


cases, such as strokes and fits, recategorised as not needing


Call handlers will get more time to assess patients before deciding


With 6000 square miles to cover, the Yorkshire Ambulance Service can


struggle to get the patients in rural East Yorkshire within the


government's target of eight minutes. At times with devastating


consequences. We lost our father to a heart attack. Me and my brother


both had to try and save him, while waiting over 40 minutes for an


ambulance to attend. Dad was struggling to breathe. It's


something I wouldn't want anybody to go through. I look back on it now


and it's very distressing. Photographer Iain Poole knows plenty


about the ambit -- the anxious wait for an ambulance. He thinks allowing


999 operators more time to assess calls before deploying an ambulance


is a bad idea. It puts more pressure on them to ask more questions in a


high stress environment. If they are still assessing you when usually an


ambulance would be dispatched, it's not a case of if we have another


fatality, it's just a case of when. Currently the most serious 999 calls


are categorised as macro three one or Red. An ambulance is normally


dispatched 60 seconds into a call, but call handlers will now have up


to four minutes to assess the seriousness of the situation. If


someone is not breathing, choking or suffering a cardiac arrest, the


target will still be eight minutes, but no time frame has been set for


responding to people suffering from chest pains, having a stroke, or


suffering a major burn. NHS managers say this change will prevent


multiple ambulances being sent to one patient. But the union that


represents ambulance crew and call handlers says there will still be


delays. It will help in a little way, but it's not the answer, by no


means is it the answer. Unless we can clear the beds in hospital, when


we get to A, they will just sit there. The whole chain needs to be


looked at. Miles of rural roads lie between Hull Royal Infirmary and


Hornsea, so what do people living here think of the change? They can


only go on the information being given to you and if someone is in a


high tense state, like you tend to be, then they may miss vital points.


The problem is not so much with the ambulances, it's the fact that you


can't get them into triage to start with, and they can't get into A,


and a and it can't get them onto the wards. If deemed a success this


change to the way Ambulance Services can respond to calls could be rolled


out across the country. Gill is with those in the studio.


What do the health bosses hope this trial will achieve? If I could just


tell you that last year across the country, 9.4 million 999 calls were


made, so NHS England nationally will be hoping that a greater percentage


of those calls could now be handled over the phone, to give the call


handlers a little bit more time, and not necessarily to deploy an


ambulance. We were contacted today, anonymously, by an ambulance worker,


who told us that the majority of his time is taken up doing routine


calls, and he's even been sent to things like minor cuts, and he


thinks front line workers could be used better. The ultimate goal of


NHS England will be to make sure that the most life-threatening calls


get the quickest responses. Thank you.


We want to hear from you on this story, if you live


Do you think an ambulance should always be sent or is it right

is on its way to Skegness There will be no investigation


into potential police misconduct in relation to the 1985


Bradford City fire disaster. 56 football fans died, including two


Lincoln City supporters. The Independent Police Complaints


Commission says there is no indication of potential misconduct

voluntarily referred A councillor who was expelled


from the Conservative Party, after posting an offensive tweet


following the death of MP Jo Cox, says he has no


intention of resigning. Dominic Peacock has written


to the Chief Executive of East Riding Council,


saying he's received overwhelming support


from ward residents, and he's described his


critics as self-righteous. Last month a council committee


said he should stand A farmer has told Look North


that his bright red, 14-tonne combine harvester has twice


been mistaken for a silver family car by Hull City


Council's bus lane cameras. Roger Oates, from Newark, hasn't


been to the city for 50 years, and says he's received two separate


penalty notices in the past year, despite photographic evidence


of the offending vehicle. This afternoon the council


apologised and cancelled the ticket, saying the notice


was issued in error. On the left, Roger's red combine


harvester. On the right, a silver car, caught on camera in a bus lane


in Hull. While their registration numbers are almost identical, that's


where the similarities end. But Roger is for the second time in a


year, he's been sent penalty notice. Having not been to Hull for over 50


years, I know my combine harvester is in the shared. It was hardly


likely to be causing this. Roger and his wife think the council has


probably mistaken a Y Forro V on the registration number, but after


proving his innocence once they are now having to do it again. I think


we were annoyed and amused, because this is the second time it's


happened, exactly the same. The first time it wasn't clear, we had a


lot of searching to do to get it right. But this time the number is


easily read. We feel this shouldn't happen. It was here come on and


Libby Road in Hull, that the alleged offence was caught on camera. Bus


lane cameras were first used in the city in ready 15 and since then,


tens of thousands of fines have been handed out, adding up to hundreds of


thousands of pounds. But it seems proving your innocence isn't always


easy. Hull's system is not user friendly. It would appear you can


only do it via the Internet. That's not acceptable to everybody and not


everybody knows how to upload photographs and the other downside


is there seems to be no procedure for people to be able to write in


using the old-fashioned method. Wiberg in a statement, Hull City


Council says the penalty charge notice has been issued in error and


a letter has been sent to the vehicle owner letting him know the


notice has been cancelled and no further action is required. We would


like to apologise for the inconvenience. After passing on the


news tonight, Roger says he's pleased to get apology. Gemma


Dawson, BBC look North. Controversial plans


for a visitor centre on land near to the Spurn Peninsula have


been approved by It's the second time


the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust has sought approval for its plans,


after its initial There have been more than 700


objections from local residents Our Environment Correspondent


Paul Murphy is live Well, certainly a surprise in the


sense that when this was first considered, last July, it was


unanimously rejected by East Riding Council is, on the grounds of its


visual impact and the threat of flooding to the centre. So certainly


enough has been done in the meantime to convince councillors, or at least


the majority of councillors, that this is the right thing to do. And


certainly the Wildlife Trust has been trying for three years to get


this proposal Loft the ground full stop whilst they are delighted the


believe it will greatly enhance this area and they spoke to as after that


planning decision at Beverley County Hall a little bit earlier on today.


We are delighted with the consent and the decision made by the


Council. We believe this gives Spurn a much brighter future. It will


ensure Spurn's many visitors have a safe, informative and enjoyable


experience for many years to come. It's difficult to think of an issue


locally that's caused so much polarisation in the debate. The


Wildlife Trust thinks this is a fantastic project. Local people


believe it will absolutely wreck Spurn, and today, they gave us some


of their thoughts after the decision. We love visitors. People


are used to visitors coming and we enjoy them. We don't think that they


need any more facilities. They'll have to do a lot to want to


encourage us to have it to happen because nobody is in their right


mind. We're very sad. We are going to lose a very nice area. We are for


the wildlife and that immunity and I've funded my living there through


working in the pub, which might close due to competition from the


cafe they say they will put on and all the other facilities. It is


already struggling seasonal pub. We were told today, there were more


than 2000 objections to this proposal in the end. Residents claim


that 90% of the local population here is opposed to the visitor


centre. Well, it's going ahead now. The challenge for the Yorkshire


Wildlife Trust is to start to build bridges with this community, to win


the hearts and minds of local people to take this centre forward. But


certainly at the moment there is a great deal of bitterness here. It's


as bitter as the wind coming off the North Sea behind me. I bet it's


freezing! Paul Murphy on Spurn Point. Thank you for watching.


Still ahead tonight: The Grimsby family that now


spans six generations, thanks to a new arrival.


Keep your photographs and pictures coming in. Thank you for this


comment Nick. Thank you for your e-mails and texts. After the


programme last night. You know what's coming! And one from Barry


Green, who says if you can't think of a present, may I said -- suggest


a dictionary. This was last night's programme. Overcast and bitterly,


spells... Well! I've had words with my personal assistant, Keeley


Donovan, who is said, don't call me personal assistant, I'm a glamorous


assistant. It's all in the best possible taste! He only had to write


down three words! Thank you for highlighting that! My pleasure! It's


not a headline, it's spelt right. These are the 3pm temperatures. It


has been nithering this afternoon. Humberside airport, -1 Celsius. What


an afternoon it has been. It's brighter but still cold tonight. No


mistakes there are! The milder rarer is on its way up from the


south-west, through Saturday. A big change coming. Sunday, there's a big


question. It looked like it would be mostly fine. There's a chance this


system may spread rain into the southern part of our region on. So


stay tuned with your details forecast at 10:30pm. Keeley will be


doing that one. You can see the extent of the cloud coming up from a


near continent, bitterly cold. We will keep the cold air through the


course of the night. We are likely to pick up cloud breaks from the


south-east. At the same time, the cloud could be thick enough when you


have got it to produce one or two light flurries. Ice could be a


problem, frost, -2 macro Orme -- -2 -3 will be the lowest temperatures


tonight. Generally speaking, tomorrow should


be a bit brighter. There will be areas of cloud around. But some


sunny spells are expected. Perhaps one or two wintry showers. Later in


the day, cloud will thicken from the south-west and that means it will be


a wet night on Friday night, into first light Saturday morning.


Temperatures numerically higher, but for much of the day it will feel


very cold. Temperatures around four Celsius, 39 Fahrenheit. But it will


be milder on Saturday, after a damp start the sun will come out. All


anybody was doing was checking every single word appeared on screen, to


see if it was spelt correctly! Oh dear. I bet you checked that three


or four times tonight, didn't you? I checked it more than that! Have a


nice weekend. There's been a lifeboat at Skegness


for almost 200 years, and soon a brand new vessel


will make its way to It's faster, more agile,


and can travel further to rescues In the first of two special reports,


Phillip Norton looks at how a ?1.5 million donation


from a lifeboat family brought She's been a saviour on the seas


around Skegness for more than 25 years. She's like an old friend. She


has a personality of her own, the smells, the sounds, the noise of the


engine, its amazing kit. It's like I could liken it to a classic car, or


a Spitfire. It makes a distinctive noise and the smell of the fuel is


an amazing experience. The Lincolnshire Poacher has been a


reassuring presence for seafarers and a welcome sight for many in


their moment of need. Since this lifeboat was stationed here in 1990,


it's been launched 352 times. It's carried out 195 rescues. In those


rescues, they saved 38 lives, along with countless vessels, people and


pets who have found themselves in difficulty on the Lincolnshire


coast. But her days here are numbered. A brand-new lifeboat will


arrive here on Saturday, thanks to a Skegness family. For almost 160


years, descendants of this family served continuously with the


lifeboat here. From days of using oars and brute strength, that


continuous service ended in 1984, when this man retired after 45 years


with the crew. When he died in 2011, he met left money for the lifeboat


and along with a donation from his cousin, April, the family has gifted


?1.5 million. It was a surprise. We were gathered upstairs in the crew


room and April was in there. Nobody really knew what was going on. It


was April announced tours there is a legacy being left by Joel to secure


the future of the funding for the station in Skegness, to introduce


this new generation of lifeboat. As a result almost 300 miles away in


Dawson, the future of life-saving on the Lincolnshire coast has been


taking shape. -- in Dorset. This is the RNLI's purpose-built lifeboat


manufacturing centre in Hull where every year six new lifeboats are


born. The latest being the new Skegness lifeboat, which was


constructed right here it's being manufactured in Poole. They will


become up to any precarious rescues, they are very brave volunteers in


the background willing to come and save you. It takes around a year to


build each lifeboat, made from fibreglass, there's not one bolt or


rivets holding any of it together. Gentlemen are laminating the to make


it very strong, so that will go through an eight week process in


here and then go out eventually for commissioning process. And here she


is, emerging from the freezing fog, the brand new Skegness lifeboat.


Named the Joel and April Grenell, the family connection will help save


lives for many years to come. We salute the work of the RNLI,.


You can see the second part of that story tomorrow,


when Phillip Norton joins the Skegness lifeboat


crew as they undergo training on their new boat.


Carol Vorderman has taken a petition to Downing Street with almost


a quarter of a million people demanding a knighthood for the last


Johnny Johnson, who was born near Horncastle in Lincolnshire,


was part of the bombing crew that destroyed some of the German dams


He's been nominated for a knighthood, but wasn't recognised


It's an insult, not only to him, but also to those with whom he fought,


and those who absolutely adore him. And I'm one of them. Yet for civil


servants, particularly the communications director for the


former Prime Minister to receive a knighthood, I don't understand it.


Carol Vorderman, who has done such sterling work trying to get that


knighthood for Johnny. The petition was handed in today. We will let you


know what happens, if there are any developments, because there's huge


interest in that story. A nun from Hull, who helped


protect a Jewish family during the Second World War,


has been commemorated with a plaque. It remembers Sister Agnes Walsh,


who was born in 1906 She hid the family while at


a convent in France. Today, nuns from her order,


and family members, gathered To see something in her hometown now


is fantastic. She's a big inspiration for me and has been for


many years. It's brilliant to see her getting this credit.


Hull City will be hoping to make it through to the final


The Tigers face a difficult task tonight though,


as they are 2-0 down to Manchester United


Our sports reporter Simon Clark is at the KCOM Stadium tonight.


A good question, Peter. Probably unlikely, because that second


Manchester United goal came just before the end of the game and very


much tilted it in their favour will stop these two Portuguese Cosic --


coaches, Jose Mourinho and Marco Silva, may have thought they knew


each other quite well, but they will certainly know each other well. They


play each other Wednesday and tonight, but Silva says the two


games are not comparable. The European competition is a game


tomorrow, to compete, to fight for our dream, to play in a final, the


next game against Manchester United is different, it's 0-0. Jake


Livermore is leaving for ?10 million, Snodgrass has probably


played his last game for the Tigers, Ryan Mason has a fractured skull,


not ideal preparation for a semifinal and you fancy that if Hull


City were to win tonight it would be as big a shock as Leicester winning


the Premier League. Fingers crossed all the same.


Nearly the first month over of Hull being the UK City of Culture,


I don't know if you've heard, but Burton Constable is going to be


hosting BBC Radio 1's big weekend? Yes, that's right, 27th and 28th of


May, Radio One's big weekend is going to be happening in Hull.


Sorry, I had to get that out of my system. Speaking of Burton


Constable, they're going to be hosting a themed walking tour. The


first date is the 31st of January, its ?28, but it comes with some


afternoon tea. Fancy. Returning to Beverley on the 20th of January, the


London Theatre voices put on an eclectic show at a church. It's


going to feature music from Gilbert and Sullivan's most famous opera.


We've got two great performance it's coming up at Hull Truck Theatre. The


award-winning acrobatic performance, and on the 29th, hold creative


voice showcased the next generation of performers and choreographers. We


are environmentally friendly, you've been tasked to make any musical


instrument out of recycled goods. Here's one I made earlier. Thank


you. BBC Radio 1 the side and look North look back and is going to be


on this weekend, Saturday and Sunday. Oh no it's not. Oh, yes it


is. Tickets are available at the box office will stop which is behind

become just the second in the UK When Lily Fitzgerald's great, great,


great grandson was born on Monday, they became part


of a very exclusive club. Meet Lily Fitzgerald's family. Only


her son is missing from this family portrait, taken just days after the


birth of little Harvey. Will Lily was his age, Grimsby's fishermen


were striking and as she meets the newest arrival... What a lovely


baby. Even she's amazed she is head of a six generation dynasty. A great


great grandchild. Great, great, great. Great, great, great? Oh... It


makes me feel terribly old! LAUGHTER


So how do you keep six generations together? Lily's son, Henry, says


she's always put family first. My mother has always worked, she's


always be determined to do everything, so it must be passed


down to was all, even to the little fellow. Are you going to hold the


baby later? It's a legacy they are all proud of. It means the world.


It's wonderful for him because when he grows up to see that. I'm proud,


I'm proud of my family anyway, but to reach six generations, I can't


believe we've reached this milestone which is fantastic. The newest


parent in the family has started young, like the previous four


generations, but he's got an experienced mental to show him how


it's done. Amanda White, BBC look North, Grimsby.


What a lovely story, good evening to them.


Let's get a recap of the national and regional headlines.


Suicides in jail have reached record levels in England and Wales -


and there have been thousands of attacks on prison staff.


Ambulance response times in East Yorkshire are relaxed -


unless it's a case of life and death.


Tomorrow's weather, brighter in places with some sunny intervals. A


few wintry flurries as well. Cold again, top temperature is not as bad


as today, getting up to around four Celsius. 39 Fahrenheit.


Thank you very much for getting in touch very quickly with me, after


Paul was gloating and after the clanger last night, when he spelt


the word bitterly wrong, have a look at this. This is denied. It's spelt


right, Lincoln, look at that. Leconfield... From the Department of


you couldn't make it up! After gloating and saying everything was


spelt right and he would check it once or twice or whatever he said,


it was wrong! Apologist to an field and thank you for those who have


been in touch to Telles tonight. -- apologies, to Leconfield. Sometimes


you are left speechless, and tonight is one of those times. Enjoy every


single second of it. Goodbye. Einstein replaced Newton's theory
