Good evening and welcome to BBC Look North.

:00:10.:00:11.

Security at the Humber Bridge is to be reviewed after teenagers

:00:12.:00:17.

film themselves climbing 500 feet to the top of the tower.

:00:18.:00:21.

Firstly they are idiots. I am live at the bridge as critics call the

:00:22.:00:34.

stunt reckless. An ejection seat manufacturer denies

:00:35.:00:35.

breaching health and safety regulations following the death

:00:36.:00:38.

of a Red Arrows pilot. The tiny patch that

:00:39.:00:40.

could save stroke victims The earlier we are able to treat

them the better. Labour heavyweights in Lincoln

as forecast but a model should see an improvement. Join me for the five

:01:23.:01:26.

day forecast. -- tomorrow should see an improvement.

:01:27.:01:45.

A group of young men who climbed 500 feet to the top

:01:46.:01:48.

of the Humber Bridge have been condemned for risking their lives

:01:49.:01:51.

A video posted on the internet shows them balancing on the cables

:01:52.:01:55.

Security at the bridge is now being reviewed but police say no

:01:56.:02:00.

Crispin Rolfe is at the Humber Bridge, Crispin,

:02:01.:02:03.

the bridge has become the latest international landmark to be scaled,

:02:04.:02:06.

Once upon a time people might have researched during this safely but

:02:07.:02:15.

now it seems to be a growing trend in seeking attention and even

:02:16.:02:20.

generating income by videos online. Those young men from London skilled

:02:21.:02:27.

at the top of the Southbridge. There are obvious issues over safety not

:02:28.:02:31.

just for them for anybody passing underneath. It is why the bridge

:02:32.:02:35.

board are keen to review security. This is footage from the top

:02:36.:02:38.

of the Humber Bridge taken by four so-called Urban Explorers and last

:02:39.:02:47.

night posted on social media We need to go now, man,

:02:48.:02:49.

it's getting bright. Online he's known as Night Scape,

:02:50.:02:55.

and is well known for But critics aren't so impressed

:02:56.:02:57.

and see it as a part of a new trend of making money online by taking

:02:58.:03:02.

extreme videos to attract If they fell off from there,

:03:03.:03:06.

we wouldn't be looking There could be somebody genuine

:03:07.:03:14.

on the river which is in trouble. In a statement a spokesman

:03:15.:03:23.

from the Humber Bridge said. There's cameras on the top

:03:24.:03:31.

and literally they were fine Climbers condemned the stunt saying

:03:32.:03:56.

that the better and safer ways. We are all harnessed up while as the

:03:57.:04:00.

daredevils had no harnesses. They were 500 feet in the air.

:04:01.:04:05.

Going that extra mile to take a selfie has

:04:06.:04:07.

Statistics suggest worldwide that more people die by taking them

:04:08.:04:11.

And it's thought that selfies have led to the deaths of 49 people

:04:12.:04:16.

globally since 2014, of whom 75% were men and half

:04:17.:04:18.

Meanwhile Humberside Police say they're now working

:04:19.:04:22.

with the Humber Bridge Board to review security,

:04:23.:04:28.

but are reminding people just how dangerous taking this sort

:04:29.:04:30.

We try to contact those but nobody has responded. Not from those

:04:31.:04:47.

responsible. Have they committed a crime? I'm told they have not but

:04:48.:04:52.

there are obvious concerns for the bridge board such as copycat

:04:53.:04:57.

incidents. They say it is largely impossible for anybody scaling the

:04:58.:05:01.

bridge the really don't want the likes of the stunt being sent all

:05:02.:05:05.

around the world and when you think that 160,000 people have viewed this

:05:06.:05:09.

online on you Tube ready that will be of genuine concern for them.

:05:10.:05:15.

I spoke to Dr Theo Kindynis, a criminologist at

:05:16.:05:17.

Roehampton University who has researched urban exploration.

:05:18.:05:19.

I started by asking whether he admired the young men

:05:20.:05:21.

who climbed to the top of the Humber Bridge.

:05:22.:05:30.

Personally I don't particularly admire them. I can see why some

:05:31.:05:37.

people might. Large parts of the urban exploration subculture will

:05:38.:05:42.

condemn them alone perhaps not the reason you would think. Is this

:05:43.:05:47.

trespass of exploration? I don't see them as two mutually exclusive

:05:48.:05:51.

categories. One is a legal definition and the others perhaps a

:05:52.:05:55.

subcultural definition. As social media made these people more

:05:56.:05:59.

reckless in looking for even better pictures? Yes. The competition to

:06:00.:06:07.

gain more likes and more followers and more fame through these social

:06:08.:06:11.

media channels, this kind of following comes from these kind of

:06:12.:06:16.

viral images and groups like this seek to capture them. The impetus is

:06:17.:06:22.

to engage in more reckless behaviours and getting clicks online

:06:23.:06:28.

and so on. They call themselves a rooftop is. Dangling their feet over

:06:29.:06:34.

the edge. Is that for their excitement and adrenaline at the

:06:35.:06:38.

time for us when they put it online? This is a tension that runs through

:06:39.:06:44.

the subculture itself and perhaps different individuals participating.

:06:45.:06:46.

Again I don't think they're mutually exclusive but I will say that more

:06:47.:06:52.

and more of these social media platforms incentivise people to

:06:53.:06:56.

engage in these kind of image centric varieties. For me dangling

:06:57.:07:02.

your feet over the edge of a rooftop is something you would do funeral

:07:03.:07:08.

experience. Are you worried it will end up with a couple of hundred

:07:09.:07:14.

thousand views and there will be copycats? Potentially. These are not

:07:15.:07:17.

the first group to climb on this bridge and it probably won't be the

:07:18.:07:22.

last. It will be a lot harder in future and potentially they could

:07:23.:07:30.

encourage other less experienced young people to engage in what is

:07:31.:07:32.

clearly quite a reckless activity. What do you think of the people

:07:33.:07:43.

who climbed the bridge? No crime has been committed

:07:44.:07:46.

according to the police. Or is this something

:07:47.:07:48.

you can't prevent? Later on I will be talking to an

:07:49.:08:25.

urban explorer in the late programme.

:08:26.:08:34.

More than five years after the death of a Red Arrows pilot -

:08:35.:08:37.

an ejection seat manufacturer will go on trial, charged

:08:38.:08:39.

Flight Lieutenant Sean Cunningham died after being ejected

:08:40.:08:42.

from his aircraft at RAF Scampton in 2011.

:08:43.:08:44.

It is now five and a half years since Flight Lieutenant Sean

:08:45.:08:50.

Cunningham died after being ejected from his Red Arrows Hawk jet.

:08:51.:08:53.

It happened during pre-flight checks - while it was on the ground -

:08:54.:08:56.

here at RAF Scampton in November 2011.

:08:57.:09:00.

This morning the ejection seat manufacturer -

:09:01.:09:06.

Martin-Baker Aircraft Company Ltd - entered a NOT guilty plea -

:09:07.:09:10.

at Lincoln Crown Court - to a charge under the Health

:09:11.:09:17.

Now - Flt Lieutenant Cunningham's family were at today's hearing -

:09:18.:09:26.

which took place just a few miles from here.

:09:27.:09:28.

Following the not guilty plea - the company will now go on trial.

:09:29.:09:32.

It's due to start on the 22nd January next year -

:09:33.:09:35.

and is expected to last four to five weeks.

:09:36.:09:46.

A social worker who lied about visiting two children

:09:47.:09:48.

who were potentially at risk of harm has been struck off.

:09:49.:09:51.

Trudy Taylor was employed as an agency social worker

:09:52.:09:53.

for Lincolnshire County Council until 2015.

:09:54.:10:02.

Council tip workers in Boston had to call in the bomb squad

:10:03.:10:05.

for a second time after world war two explosives were dumped

:10:06.:10:08.

A controlled explosion was needed to get rid

:10:09.:10:14.

of the shells at recycling centre in Boston last week.

:10:15.:10:16.

Lincolnshire County Council says people should call the police,

:10:17.:10:19.

if they want to dispose of ammunition and shells.

:10:20.:10:29.

A woman accused of hitting her step daughter with a hammer has

:10:30.:10:32.

Jennifer Harrison, who's 30 is accused of hitting

:10:33.:10:35.

the girl 34 times at their home in Bempton near Bridlington.

:10:36.:10:38.

Her partner Deborah Harrison, the girl's mother,

:10:39.:10:40.

Both deny assault causing actual bodily harm.

:10:41.:10:43.

The trial at Hull Crown Court, continues.

:10:44.:11:15.

Litter and new private enforcement officers in Boston prompted a big

:11:16.:11:17.

Patrols have started and anyone caught littering

:11:18.:11:20.

So far thousands of pounds of penalties have been handed out.

:11:21.:11:24.

Alan says "If people were given the choice of a ?75 fine or half

:11:25.:11:27.

an hour litter picking I think people would opt

:11:28.:11:29.

If notices are issued, the litter remains."

:11:30.:11:32.

Jenny says "I think litter informant officers

:11:33.:11:34.

Armed with body cameras, then there is no argument."

:11:35.:11:37.

John in Lincoln says "The British have no personal pride

:11:38.:11:39.

Many European countries have exactly the opposite and have pride

:11:40.:11:43.

Tiny patch, like a sticking plaster, could save the lives of people

:11:44.:11:49.

who have a stroke - and now a trial of them

:11:50.:11:52.

in Lincolnshire is spreading to the Ambulance Service in Yorkshire.

:11:53.:11:59.

Around 40,000 people in the UK die as a result

:12:00.:12:01.

of a stroke every year, and it's hoped the stick

:12:02.:12:03.

on patches will reduce that, as our health correspondent,

:12:04.:12:06.

T - Time, just like a fire, it's time to call 999...

:12:07.:12:12.

Every minute counts when you have a stroke.

:12:13.:12:14.

The faster you act, the more of the person you save.

:12:15.:12:23.

Now almost 50 paramedics in Lincolnshire like Mark

:12:24.:12:24.

have been equipped with a revolutionary new stroke treatment

:12:25.:12:27.

and it's all contained in one tiny patch.

:12:28.:12:29.

Place that onto the shoulder blade and it won't feel anything.

:12:30.:12:49.

The drug will be absorbed into the skin and the

:12:50.:12:51.

best way to try and describe it, is the artery as a vessel.

:12:52.:12:54.

If a blood clot gets trapped in that artery,

:12:55.:12:57.

this medication will allow that artery to open and dilate which will

:12:58.:13:00.

The drug, GTN, which is contained in these

:13:01.:13:02.

patches is already used to treat heart patients because it has been

:13:03.:13:05.

shown to help lower blood pressure and open up blood vessels.

:13:06.:13:08.

It's hoped the use of these patches could help

:13:09.:13:10.

double the chances of survival among stroke patients.

:13:11.:13:12.

A stroke occurs when the blood supply to part of

:13:13.:13:16.

your brain is cut off either through a clot

:13:17.:13:18.

Strokes can cause permanent disability in around a quarter of

:13:19.:13:24.

patients and not everyone will survive.

:13:25.:13:28.

One in eight will die within 30 days of having a stroke.

:13:29.:13:32.

Stroke survivors like Jim Howard from Hull, the new treatment

:13:33.:13:35.

Anything that will help the patient who has had a stroke

:13:36.:13:42.

before he gets into the hospital is a good thing.

:13:43.:13:59.

Before this treatment can be widely adopted many more stroke patients

:14:00.:14:10.

need to be recruited to the trial so results can be monitored. LA results

:14:11.:14:21.

suggest that the treatment can cut down the problems.

:14:22.:14:26.

Still ahead tonight: Lincoln welcomes some Labour heavyweights

:14:27.:14:28.

they commit to scrapping student tuition fees.

:14:29.:14:34.

A century after World War I, an East Yorkshire soldier killed

:14:35.:14:37.

at the Somme is finally laid to rest.

:14:38.:14:57.

How could you doubt my forecast? It looks much better and a vast

:14:58.:15:26.

improvement on today's wash-out. Just the chance of one or two

:15:27.:15:31.

showers. The weather has already bought over an inch of rain at

:15:32.:15:35.

Holbeach and 30 millimetres more to come in the next few hours. Ridge of

:15:36.:15:38.

high pressure on Thursday means many of us will be fine and the weather

:15:39.:15:42.

develops another wave and maybe we see more rain coming through for a

:15:43.:15:47.

time on Friday. Now there's a weather front that has brought all

:15:48.:15:51.

the heavy rain across most parts of East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire and

:15:52.:15:55.

it is still what is at the moment so lots of problems with surface spray

:15:56.:16:01.

on the roads. For the period times. -- further heavy rain at times. It

:16:02.:16:06.

clears the coast in the second Ave of the night and we will see

:16:07.:16:12.

temperatures down to seven degrees eight Celsius. The sun rises at just

:16:13.:16:15.

before five o'clock and your next hide what time and whole Victoria

Dock is at 36 minutes past 11 in the morning. -- Hull. A dazzling start

:16:21.:16:30.

with clear blue skies and sunshine in the morning and it stays bright

:16:31.:16:34.

through the morning. Sunny spells and just the chance of one or two

:16:35.:16:38.

spells breaking out. It will feel quite one in the sunshine after a

:16:39.:16:42.

fairly chilly start and a light westerly wind means temperatures

:16:43.:16:48.

around 17 Celsius. Some uncertainty about the forecast on Friday but

:16:49.:16:51.

there is a risk of further show the outbreaks of rain for a time. The

:16:52.:16:53.

weak bright sunshine and the rest The man who hopes to be in charge

:16:54.:17:09.

of the UK economy if Labour win the general election has been

:17:10.:17:13.

campaigning in Lincoln - with a message to try

:17:14.:17:15.

to win over young people. John McDonnell told a crowd

:17:16.:17:24.

that his party would SCRAP The Conservatives say

:17:25.:17:26.

that's unaffordable More from our Political

:17:27.:17:30.

Editor, Tim Iredale. If Labour when the election next

:17:31.:17:39.

month He's the man who will be in charge

:17:40.:17:45.

of the nation's finances if Labour win the general election and this

:17:46.:17:48.

lunchtime Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell has been in Lincoln

:17:49.:17:50.

to set out some of the policies we do not believe young people

:17:51.:18:06.

should be saddled with debt for the rest of lies. Tuition fees were

:18:07.:18:11.

injuries by Tony Blair 's Labour Government in 1998 and students

:18:12.:18:17.

played ?1000. This was travelled in 2006 and travelled again under the

:18:18.:18:21.

Coalition Government in 2012 is, the cap on fees made ?9,000. Going to

:18:22.:18:29.

uni is a massive thing and the last thing you need is to worry about

:18:30.:18:35.

this ?9,000 debt. It makes a lot of people's lives a lot easier. Where

:18:36.:18:39.

will they get the funding from? It seems unrealistic to say free

:18:40.:18:46.

tuition for everyone. I am concerned about a lowering of the standards

:18:47.:18:50.

because a lot of the money that goes on to tuition fees goes into the

:18:51.:18:53.

facilities and by increasing the facilities they get a lot more

:18:54.:18:58.

funding. It is easy to see why Labour I targeting university cities

:18:59.:19:02.

such as Lincoln with the promise to scrap student fees at the party 's

:19:03.:19:05.

opponents insist they have got the figures wrong. They have not been

:19:06.:19:11.

very good with figures with John McDonnell and Diane Abbott. I don't

:19:12.:19:15.

think she will get very far with any interviews with Co down. I don't

:19:16.:19:19.

think the figures add up at all and I think very quickly develop out

:19:20.:19:23.

yesterday. It is going to cost ?11 billion. There were some time how

:19:24.:19:28.

you will pay for it. That might give you some idea. We have brought out a

:19:29.:19:32.

fully costed programme and are saying there will be increases in

:19:33.:19:42.

income tax for the fop 5% errors. -- top 5%. The Liberal Democrats led to

:19:43.:19:50.

pledge more money for school. There was nothing on tuition fees. I

:19:51.:19:55.

remind some would say election pledges are often washed away by the

:19:56.:19:56.

harsh realities of power. And this is the full

:19:57.:20:04.

list of candidates for the Lincoln Constituency

:20:05.:20:06.

for the general election The NHS says that almost all GP's

:20:07.:20:08.

practices in Lincolnshire are back to 'business as usual'

:20:09.:20:16.

following Friday's cyber attack. Hospital appointments

:20:17.:20:18.

that were cancelled We've got an update

:20:19.:20:21.

on some of those affected. Steve Helmer from Nettleham was one

:20:22.:20:29.

of those whose story The cyber attack meant

:20:30.:20:32.

he was unable to find out how He's been told he'll be able to see

:20:33.:20:36.

a consultant tomorrow. Claire Hobday from Gainsborough

:20:37.:20:40.

had her radiotherapy interrupted for four days while staff worked

:20:41.:20:42.

to get computers Lincoln County Hospital were able

:20:43.:20:44.

to resume her treatment on tuesday and are going to make up

:20:45.:20:49.

for the sessions she missed. They said they would squeeze points

:20:50.:21:05.

in on Saturday the people. -- appointments. They said what time

:21:06.:21:10.

would you like to come and I think that is ground of them and I admire

:21:11.:21:13.

them for being able to do that and put it in place with everybody that

:21:14.:21:19.

mistake, just up myself. -- not just myself, obviously.

:21:20.:21:24.

Terry Garnett from Hull got in touch with us back in March to try to help

:21:25.:21:29.

She wanted WiFi internet installed at the hospital where she received

:21:30.:21:40.

Terry said his wife Beverley felt isolated when she couldn't call

:21:41.:21:48.

because of poor signal and the hospital having

:21:49.:21:50.

And she couldn't email because of a lack of internet.

:21:51.:21:53.

Well, now, The NHS Trust which runs Castle Hill hospital says cancer

:21:54.:21:56.

patients will have internet access by October.

:21:57.:22:02.

I think it will help people who are not on the war. Wives and husbands.

:22:03.:22:11.

I felt isolated being at home and wondering how Beverly was coping

:22:12.:22:15.

with it. I think it will make a lot of people have the lives easier. We

:22:16.:22:23.

were happy to More than a century after he died

:22:24.:22:24.

in the Great War, an East Yorkshire soldier has been laid

:22:25.:22:39.

to rest in France with full Private Henry Parker,

:22:40.:22:42.

whose family still live at Wansford near Driffield,

:22:43.:22:44.

was twenty-three when he was killed No picture of him remains,

:22:45.:22:47.

and his bones were only recovered These shall not grow all. 100

:22:48.:22:51.

service in France. These shall not grow all. 100 years

:22:52.:23:08.

after he was killed at the Battle Henry Parker was back

:23:09.:23:14.

with the Shropshire family and with his Yorkshire Regiment. At the

:23:15.:23:22.

cemetery in France he was buried with full military honours close to

:23:23.:23:26.

where he felt at the age of 23. The trenches were knee deep in mud and

:23:27.:23:30.

the combat stress quite unimaginable. No these young men

:23:31.:23:35.

carried out the exploits the dead and the bravery and determination is

:23:36.:23:45.

really quite remarkable. Private Parker was a member of The Yorkshire

:23:46.:23:49.

Regiment. A soldier like many from the First World War who had been

:23:50.:23:55.

listed as missing in action. In 2015 this Yorkshire regimental badge was

:23:56.:23:59.

found in France with human remains. At rear find which for one family

:24:00.:24:02.

back in Yorkshire was to end 100 years awaiting. Lovely. Through DNA

:24:03.:24:15.

testing organised by the Ministry of Defence casualties enter the human

:24:16.:24:22.

remains were matched to Henry 's great-nephew. Today he and other

:24:23.:24:26.

family members made the journey from East and north Yorkshire to see the

:24:27.:24:29.

long lost relative at last laid to rest. I think he would've been

:24:30.:24:39.

really proud. It is nice to look back and you see clippings of the

:24:40.:24:44.

parents and that they never got chance to say goodbye so further

:24:45.:24:49.

down the line family members have managed to do it. 500,000 British

:24:50.:24:53.

soldiers were lost in the First World War and still of no name the

:24:54.:24:57.

grave. For the family of private Henry Parker that is some comfort at
