A family's anger as their father, who has dementia is moved to four
While we can never prove it, we honestly believe that the moves
that he had to undergo affected him and made his condition worse.

plans for major work on one of Hull's busiest

Temperatures are recovering but it is still cold. I'll be back later in
the programme with more details. A family from East Yorkshire
are calling for major changes in the way care for the elderly
is funded after their father who had dementia had to move care homes four
times in the last year of his life. Pat Maguire from Beverley
says his father in law's condition worsened significantly
because of the moves. A number of privately run
residential homes in the area have closed in the last year and now
Mr Maguire says adult social care should be nationalised and funded
directly from Government. More from our political
reporter Sarah Sanderson. Pat Maguire has spoken out
after he and his family chose to find residential care in Beverley
in East Yorkshire for his But because of issues surrounding
closures and suitability, his father-in-law had to be moved
four times after initially settling While we can never prove it,
we honestly believe that the moves that he had to undergo affected him
and made his condition worse. Yes, they give money
to local authorities but it's the Government,
through taxation, that ought to be caring, just as we expect them
to do for small children, the young, we ought to be providing
the same level of care Funding issues have been blamed
for a number of care homes And earlier this month,
Jeremy Corbyn said a Labour Government would take failing
private care homes into public ownership in order to maintain
social care protection. But the Conservative MP
for Beverley and Holderness says The Government's absolutely
committed to getting this right. If you look on the ground
in Beverley, despite the current problems, in the next few weeks
we're going to see new places coming forward and over the next years
I expect to see a much improved situation and the Government
is playing its part in doing that. In a statement, the Department
of Health says... that it recognises
the pressures of an ageing population, which is why it
announced nearly ?900 million of additional funding for adult
social care over the next two years. It adds that the Prime Minister has
made clear that this is not just about money and that they're working
to find a long-term solution which helps councils learn from each
other to raise standards. Meanwhile, for those who are dealing
with and adult social care problems, that long-term solution can't
come soon enough. -- current adult
social care problems. I'll be asking for your views and
comments in just a moment. Earlier I spoke to the Conservative
MP for Beverley and Holderness, Graham Stuart and I asked him
if it was acceptable for this gentleman to live in five
care homes in a year. Well, I don't think anyone
would like to see an elderly relative go through that and it's
not good and it wouldn't Some councils are having to increase
council tax by almost 5%. Is it fair to make the taxpayer foot
the bill to deal with this adult social care crisis,
which the Government must have Well, the taxpayer
does pick up the bill. I'm talking about increasing council
tax, some people paying up to 5%. Some taxpayers have
got to pay for it. The Government is putting in another
900 million over the next two years. There's the change, as you rightly
say, to the social care That will bring in 200 million extra
this year, 400 million next year. We've lost five care homes
in just the last year Something needs to be done now
to stop the water leaving the dam. Well, I think some care homes,
if they're no longer fit for purpose, if they're too
expensive to run, We've seen Westwood Park
close, and Keldgate Manor In the next few weeks,
we are going to have 70 places opening at Claremont
House in Beverley. Parklands is going to be coming
forward, another 79 places, and Keldgate Manor will be opening
on a larger scale. So actually, if you just take
the town of Beverley, we are losing places
which were rather older and we're going to get
state-of-the-art, modern care homes. The Local Government Association say
reductions in funding for social care have increased the pressure
and the financial burden on the NHS. That's the Local
Government Association. They represent local government and,
as we know, the LGA will always bang the drum for additional funding
and support for local authorities. We have an ageing population,
we have a vast deficit, as you know. And just briefly, Labour have
suggested that adult social care Well, that's Jeremy
Corbyn, isn't it? Just as they did in the 70s,
nationalising failing industries instead of allowing them to be
closed and reformed, instead of having what we have
today, a transformed Failing care homes being
nationalised, kept in aspic, we wouldn't get the investment,
we wouldn't have the highest standards, we wouldn't
have the innovation and improvements I think, as ever with Jeremy Corbyn,
it's not just unpopular, We could talk about
this for a long time. Is very emotive subject. I know you
will have a view on this. What is your experience of adult social care
locally? What do you think about Jeremy Corbyn's idea to nationalise
it? Here's how to get in touch... And there will be coverage
about care on this Guests include the Hull North MP
Diana Johnson and Cleethorpes Plans to improve one of Hull's
busiest roads will mean less traffic and new bridges -
but it will be between five and seven years
before the road is ready. The designs for the A63 which went
on display to the public today, could also lead to more flooding
on the road - but those behind them say they're putting measures
in place to deal with that. Laura Foster has been
looking at the plans What exactly do they
want to do there? Well, they want to change the layout
to speed it up for motorists. It might not look like there is a big
problem at the moment but you ring rush over, it can be busy. It is
because of the traffic lights that lines as part of the writ. Today,
they have unveiled at these plans and released this video. It starts
at the flyover and what they are looking at doing is widening the
road, getting rid of the traffic lights and pedestrian crossings.
They will change the junction. The roundabout will disappear and
traffic will pass over the top. A63 traffic will pass underneath. They
are also looking to build a bridge over the key. People at the
exhibition today wanted to tell us what they thought of the plans.
At the end of the day, there's going to be a long-term benefit.
I think people would prefer that things were happening a lot more
quickly than what they are going to be.
I don't think it's the right solution.
It's all alluvial ground that's been built up with peat
and soil and river debris, so it will probably float.
What have lorry drivers and other people who use the road regularly
We have spoken to several lorry drivers and taxi drivers and
hollowed funds # Firms. They say that they are in
favour of what is being done today but that not enough is being done.
They don't just stop when they are in a robbery that go beyond towards
the docks. The fear is that they don't... It will create more
traffic. There are also concerns about the gate junction. The plans
to change that. That is just likely. The roundabout will do is appear and
they will sink the A63. Doing that so close to the Humber worries
people. Because the design is sinking
the road seven metres, ground conditions, we have spent
an awful lot of time with the contracters, carrying out very
detailed ground investigations and The consultation on these plans runs
for another two weeks But it'll be about two years before
you'll see any work being done here. It will be at least five before
anything is finished. Investigators are examining
whether a fire at a semi-demolished Firefighters were sent
to the Grand Central building on the seafront during the early
hours of this morning. Crews were here from around
about half three, four They have managed to extinguish most
the fire but that but the problem The plan of action at the moment
is to cordon off, keep the public away from the building,
safe, and we can carry on the damping down process
which we'll probably continue Culling of almost 20,000 turkeys has
begun on a farm in Lincolnshire after bird flu was confirmed
by Government officials. The farm close to Frithville
near Boston has had a 3km exclusion It's the third farm in the county
to deal with a bird flu outbreak Defra are investigating
the cause of the latest case. A dog rescued from a designer puppy
farm has given birth to four puppies Ruby, who's a Chihuahua cross,
was kept in squalid conditions with no health check-ups,
with 48 other dogs for breeding. RSPCA officers think
she may have given birth Designer cross-breeds can earn
criminals up to ?300 a time. Healthy and friendly, these puppies
were saved from a poor start in life. Their mum was rescued from a
puppy factory. If they had been born there, they would have had no
objects and the bridges would have seen them as breeding machines.
People get them to make money. They come here and say they've got a
various different kinds of drugs. They are marketed as being something
fabulous. -- they've got various kinds of dogs. Most of the time, you
are getting a dog that has never been health checked, worms, seen a
vet. When you do see it with a vet, the vet says that there are all
sorts of problems. Some of these puppies can fetch around ?300. That
is the problem with puppy farms. The kennel club estimates that 1.5
million copies were sold in 2040. Nearly half the people that bought a
puppy that you do not see it with its mother. Those but on the
intranet or pet shops are four times more likely to suffer from the
potentially fatal disease parvovirus. Puppy farming is enabled
by the third party that is seeing the puppy. The majority of the
people are a little and licensed. As long as the chain continues, puppy
farming is enabled and it can only get worse. These dogs now on all
have homes to go to and have been fully health checks. Those that buy
puppies off a seller on the Internet to take the risk that it has come
from a puppy farm like these ones. A good message for us. Thank you for

lifeboat say its like swapping The Shannon-class lifeboat
will arrive at her new home But before they began
the journey to Lincolnshire, Phillip Norton joined the crew
on the south coast as they trained on their new vessel
for this special report. It is nine o'clock in the morning
at the RNLI headquarters in Poole. Amid thick fog, the Skegness
lifeboat crew are heading out We're going to come out,
outside the harbour area and we will do some routine
exercises, some drills. While visibility is down to a few
metres, Will has a new piece of kit Anyone of us can link
into the radar page. Rather than having one set
of eyes on, we can have as many as what is needed
on the raider itself. This Shannon-class lifeboat
will replace the Mersey-class lifeboat which has been based
in Skegness since 1990. This is the survivor's cabin. It
takes six people. It is much more comfortable and secure than the
previous one. It has been paid for thanks
to a ?1.5 million donation from former crewman,
the late Joel Grunnill It can achieve 25 knots out
on the sea as opposed to 15 knots. It has an increased range,
an extra 70 miles on rescues and is much quicker and easier
to launch from the station. We're lucky to have her. She is
driven by two jets, whereas the previous was driven by two
propellers. She behaved differently. As you would expect.
As we head further out, there is a problem.
It is a training scenario but time to put well
We are using the equipment, training on here as much
With faster jet-propulsioned engines rather than propellers,

stood with a collecting box collecting money for the lifeboats

A campaign to raise ?3 million has been launched to return

This is a remarkable show. Not only was it on the front line of the
Great War for four years. It tells you very much the story of fishermen
and people from Hull. For the men from Hull and families.
One was George William Tharratt, skipper of the Viola from 1912.
His son Eric and granddaughter Pat have only recently found out
about George's connection with the ship.
But have become the first to donate to the campaign to bring her home.
That trial of being born in Beverly and sailing from Hull, it's a great

temperature of 7 Celsius. Talking about the funding of social
care, one viewer says that it should be out of the hands of private
profit. Margaret says that she is disgusted at the constant claim on
the elderly population. The Government required to take the tax
from ours during our working life. Obviously no preparation for the
elderly care. Another viewer says that it is absolutely right to
nationalise the care of the elderly, take out the profit element. Have a
