Another community in East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire is without a cash
machine after one was stolen from a convenience
A 22-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident
which is the latest in a series of thefts in our area.
You can see the devastation in the mess that has been left. It happened
at 2:20am when a forklift truck was driven into this wall to get the
cash machine out. Structural engineers have been working all day
to make the building safe and block that part the -- of the store. When
I arrived, the JCB had been abandoned in the car park. This
community has lost its only cashpoint, it is not the first time
these have used this technique. -- thieves.
Targeted by thieves in the early hours, this cashpoint in the small
village of Thorngumbald is the latest to be
It's very irritating because this is a community store.
Obviously, we are going to have to turn people away today,
Police have now confirmed that the JCB was stolen
Staff at the shop say CCTV shows the vehicle being driven
into the side of the wall at least four times, smashing
But it's not the first time this has happened.
In East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, thieves have taken eight cash
They tend to target rural areas, often in the early hours.
We work closely in all our communities to speak with vulnerable
premises to give them the protection we can.
You can't put a police officer in every small village with a
As much as we would love to, we can't.
Does that mean they will forever be a target?
I've come here to use the cashpoint as usual because it is a handy.
Obviously someone has been there before.
It has happened at plenty of other places, I suppose they had to come
here sooner or later. With the JCB returned to the farmer,
now the work begins to make this building structurally safe,
so it can reopen and serve Tonight, the Police and Crime
Commissioner say they are concerned this is yet another ATM theft in the
Humberside Police force area and he wants reassurances from police
officers this type of crime can be minimised. A 22-year-old man has
been arrested and the cash machine has been recovered from a field.
Unfortunately for the village, they have lost their only cash machines
and they don't know when the store will reopen either.
Peter Bleksley is a former Met Police officer and expert
I asked him if these rural shops with cash machines are rich
Generally speaking, they are vulnerable to attack.
And as long as you have large amounts of cash
sitting around unattended, then that will always be
Are these people professional and organised?
Invariably, recent criminal history has shown the people involved
in these types of crimes are career criminals.
They don't go to work everyday and have a legitimate job.
They sit around hatching plots, deciding how they can steal
these kinds, seeing how they can steal this money.
One e-mail says, crooks are laughing at the place, why not put a tracker
in the machine? Well, of course, the security
company is responsible for these machines and will not declare
exactly what security You can do the overt things
like putting in bollards to stop But there are other security
measures that have to remain secret. So you are saying they could be
tracked and we don't know? But the security companies
are trying to play their cards very So what can be done to reduce these
thefts? The obvious thing is to put bollards
around, so that forklift trucks cannot drive up and simply take them
out of the wall. The police, of course,
tend to know who these people are, And recent history has shown
they have been able to catch people actually in the act or very soon
after they have committed the crime. Briefly, if you run a convenience
store, and many people who do run them will be watching tonight, in a
rural area, would you be concerned? I would speak to the machine
operator, ensure that all possible security measures are in place,
that the CCTV is working, that the area is well lit,
and liaise with the local police See what other measures they will
tell you you can put in place. But carry on with business,
do not be deterred, do not Good to talk to you tonight, thank
you for your time. We want to hear from
you on this story. many of these thefts there have been
across our area. What more can be done to stop
the cash machines being stolen? You can contact us in
the following ways. Maybe you run a store, why do think
there are 70 thefts? Do you think there are tracker machines inside?
We will have more before we finish at 7pm.
Business leaders say they'll fight plans to guarantee workers'
The Government has confirmed that some egg producers in East Yorkshire
and Lincolnshire could temporarily lose their free-range status
There have been three confirmed outbreaks of bird
Defra has announced today that in some areas restrictions
on the housing of birds will be eased for the first time
since December, but in high-risk areas which include areas along
the coast, farmers will be required to keep birds indoors.
Our environment correspondent Paul Murphy is with me now.
Well, for some farmers in these new restriction
will have a big impact on their incomes as they will no
longer be able to market their eggs as free-range.
Now, the new restictions are all about stopping the spread
We've had three outbreaks in our area so far.
The first one was at a turkey farm near Louth
on December 16th where 5,000 birds were culled.
The second outbreak, also at a turkey farm, occured two
The latest bird flu outbreak in our area was two weeks ago in Boston,
After the first outbreak in December, the Government ordered
all farmers and smallholders to keep poultry indoors.
That order runs out at the end of this month.
But it will remain in place for so-called high-risk areas.
In our area, this will include farms on the coast,
around the Humber and the Wash and Fenland areas.
This is because these are places favoured by wild birds
which are believed to contribute to the spread of avian flu.
And so farms in this areas must keep their birds indoors, and can't
The Government says it's done for good reason.
They will not any more be able to label their eggs as free-range.
The Government won't be able to give them any
help, but I'm hopeful that
people will recognise that these are free-range flocks.
They are being housed for a good reason for disease control
and understand that these are still eggs produced from flocks
Well, there'll be fewer free-range eggs on the market
and some fear a shortage, and the possibility they'll become
more expensive to buy if you're determined to have one.

NHS England wants to close the department at Glenfield Hospital

Critics say that'll leave patients facing longer trips for treatment.

An attempt by Grimsby's MP to ringfence the EU laws that
protect workers' rights faces opposition from business leaders.
The Federation Of Small Businesses says the Government should scrap
some of the laws set by Brussels when Britain leaves the EU.
Labour's Melanie Onn has introduced a bill calling on ministers
to safeguard workers' rights after Brexit.
More from our political editor Tim Iredale.
Many of our ancestors worked long hours in dangerous conditions.
Health and safety legislation was virtually nonexistent.
Nowadays, numerous laws exist to protect workers from exploitation.
But some claim workers' rights may not be guaranteed after Brexit.
However good intentions Theresa May may have
in enshrining the current rights, we can't be sure what will
There was some certainty about how the EU operated.
Therefore it is more difficult to get rid of.
Among the many EU laws designed to protect workers include working
time regulations that mean that employees cannot be forced to work
Staff must also be given regular time off, and rest breaks,
Agency workers are given the same basic rights as permanent staff
after they had been in the same job for at least 12 weeks.
None of our MPs in the region have opposed the Brexit
proposals in Parliament but Great Grimsby's Melanie Onn has
introduced her own bill calling for EU working regulations to be
I accept the British people voted for Brexit but I urge the Government
to hear they did not vote for more insecure contracts,
less safe workplaces or anything less than they have by way
Ministers have consistently denied claims workers' rights
But some bosses argue the Government should not automatically adopt every
single EU employment law when we leave the EU.
A lot of these directives are well intentioned.
It is not like we are trying to diminish workers' rights.
We want to make it easier to employ people.
We really want to reduce the barriers taking on new people.
So, expect a fierce debate over the coming months over which EU laws
should be kept after we leave the EU in 2019.
You might also have a view on this story.
Should workers' rights be protected after we leave the EU?

dodgy used car sales man. Do you put my weather forecasting
skills in the same bracket as a used car salesman?
I can see some e-mails coming in, used cars salesman are a wonderful
bunch of people. Let us look at the headline for
tomorrow. It is cold, some wintry showers as you have seen today.
Light sleet and rain with a little slow in places.
Of interest, this disturbance on Saturday which will bring prolonged
showers from the North Sea. It could be juiced some snow.
Let us have a look at the details. There was no cloud on the satellite
picture, but if we run the sequence overnight, it is cloudy, there will
be a scattering of winter showers in places.
Where you catch a shower, the air will be cold enough to produce ice,
temperatures in the countryside at freezing point. In urban areas, just
above freezing. A cold night nonetheless. Here are
the times of sunrise. Another cloudy, great, cold day,
with a further scattering of showers, rain, sleet, a little light
snow in places, perhaps leading to temporary accumulations more
especially over the hills. That moves to the north-east.
Temperatures close to three Celsius. 37 Fahrenheit. Looking further
ahead, into Saturday, as I mentioned earlier, those showers becoming more
frequent, a little bit heavier, some snow perhaps. Mainly sleet and light
rain at lower levels. On Sunday, further showers, mainly
rain and sleet. Next week, less cold, mostly dry, a lot of cloud.
That is the forecast. If you are a That is the forecast. If you are a

Premiership points out The media are provided
with these delicious bacon sure they will pass muster
with Marco Silva. He had taken a close interest
in the players' diets. Silva is not the first Premiership
boss to use food as an incentive. Manchester City boss
Pep Guardiola has banned pizza. Leaders Chelsea can no
longer enjoy ketchup, But his compatriot Claudio Ranieri
was happy for his Leicester players to have an occasional pizza en route
to last season's title. Of course I try to pay attention
to all the situation because the football,
it is important to all the team, not only what they do
in training, it is important It is important to pay attention
to all the situation. Diet is a part of that
attention to detail. It is all the things that
are important, not only diet. He is encouraging them to have
fresh fruit instead. But I don't think players will mind
too much if they are Alfred N'Diaye who scored on debut
arrived after the pudding ban. He says Silva is the man
to improve his game. If Marco's magic continues,

online at: bbc.co.uk/hull2017. A full-size model of one of the most
important aeroplanes in the country The original Gypsy Moth was flown
by Hull aviator Amy Johnson, the first woman to fly solo
from England to Australia in 1930. After six months' work,
the replica two-seater plane is now going on display
in the city's railway station. Jill Archbold is at
there for us tonight. In 1930, a 19-day solo flight,
from England to Australia brought It was worthwhile doing anything
to come back and find so much warm as has been shown me
since my return. Her Gipsy Moth biplane was nicknamed
after her father's business. The original has been
in London's Science Museum for decades and, after efforts
to bring it back to Hull failed, inmates in the city's prison set out
on a journey to build their own. We applied on the Internet
and bought some models. When they arrived, we thought
we will make it a little bit bigger Then we went to a half-size model
and then we thought, damn it, The biplane was built from scratch
in the prison's workshop where inmates usually
learn basic skills. What I've seen over the last few
months are prisoners actively engaged, literally running to work,
which you do not often see. The challenge for us will be
what is the next project. But could this replica of Jason
recreate Amy Johnson's It is within a few millimetres
of the original model. If you did put an engine inside,
I do believe it would fly. The Gipsy Moth model will be
hung from the ceiling A visual reminder for visitor
of Hull's flying heroine. It is only fitting it will be lifted
up this evening and hoisted from the ceiling where it will stay for the
rest of 2017. A fantastic story, I didn't even
know the prison was making that until earlier today. The gypsy moth
is being put into the railway station. I will certainly go a long
and have a look at it. Let's get a recap of the national
and regional headlines. New figures show the worst ever
waiting times in A departments. A man's been arrested after a cash
machine was ripped from the side Staying cloudy and cold with further
scattered wintry showers. Eight cash machine thefts from
premises in East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire in the last 12 months,
a big response on this story. Rick says, why can't we do the same as in
the US and fit a device in the cash machine which impregnates the
banknotes with a dive when the machine is disturbed in a violent
manner, making ram raiding pointless.
Mark says the answer to catch and deter these criminals, just install
a simple GPS tracking device similar to those used in vehicles, inside
the cashpoint machine. Are the facts and police missing something? Our
expert who used to be in the Metropolitan Police said it is
possible they are in there but the banks do not give away their
techniques. John says, far machine equipment --
farm machinery should not be left out in fields which can be easily
stolen, it must be in the interests of the farmers.
Bruce says it is easy to solve this problem, build a four foot wall
constructed of concrete and still some distance each side of the cash
machine along the edge of the footpath.
Chris says, we have been hit three times and due to that we have lost
our own the bank. If we had CCTV we may have had our much needed back.
Diane says, why not put the cash machine inside the store, people
would get used to using it only during a shop opening session.
