Good evening. Welcome to the Late Look North. The headlines tonight.

:00:00.:00:08.

A third case of bird flu is identified in Lincolnshire

:00:09.:00:11.

Ambulances in East Yorkshire will take longer to reach patients

:00:12.:00:18.

unless they're in a life or death situation.

:00:19.:00:22.

It will help in a little way, but it's not the answer,

:00:23.:00:25.

There's anger as plans for a visitor centre for Spurn Point are passed,

:00:26.:00:32.

And after a bitterly cold day, we are going to see

:00:33.:00:37.

I'll be back later in the programme with all the details.

:00:38.:00:52.

A third case of bird flu has been confirmed at a farm in Lincolnshire.

:00:53.:00:58.

The Government says it's affecting a farm near Boston.

:00:59.:01:01.

A three-kilometre protection zone has been put in around the farm

:01:02.:01:05.

but officials say there is a very low risk to humans.

:01:06.:01:08.

What more do we know about this latest outbreak in the county?

:01:09.:01:19.

This is a third case of bird flu that has been confirmed in

:01:20.:01:25.

Lincolnshire in the last six weeks. This evening DEFRA says the disease

:01:26.:01:31.

has been found at a turkey rearing farm near Boston. It is estimated

:01:32.:01:37.

the flock contains more than 19,000 birds. Some have already died the

:01:38.:01:42.

rest will have to be cold. It is just ten days since an outbreak of

:01:43.:01:46.

bird flu was confirmed at Low Farm near Louth. They're more than 6000

:01:47.:01:54.

turkeys were infected. Another case was reported five miles from there

:01:55.:01:59.

in December. I've spoken to DEFRA this evening and they say an

:02:00.:02:02.

investigation is underway to determine the source of this latest

:02:03.:02:06.

outbreak but Public Health England says the risk to people is very low.

:02:07.:02:11.

We will continue to follow the story.

:02:12.:02:12.

The Yorkshire Ambulance Service says paramedics will no longer have

:02:13.:02:14.

to get to call-outs within eight minutes unless they're

:02:15.:02:16.

The pilot scheme will see response times relaxed,

:02:17.:02:22.

giving call handlers more time to assess patients over the phone

:02:23.:02:26.

With 6,000 square miles to cover, the Yorkshire Ambulance Service

:02:27.:02:37.

can struggle to get to patients in rural East Yorkshire within

:02:38.:02:41.

the Government's target of eight minutes.

:02:42.:02:44.

At times with devastating consequences.

:02:45.:02:47.

We lost our father to a heart attack.

:02:48.:02:50.

Me and my brother both had to try and save him,

:02:51.:02:53.

while waiting over 40 minutes for an ambulance to attend.

:02:54.:02:55.

Dad was struggling to breathe, clasping at his chest.

:02:56.:02:57.

It's something I wouldn't want anybody to go through.

:02:58.:03:00.

It's something I still look back on now and it's very distressing.

:03:01.:03:04.

Photographer Iain Poole knows plenty about the anxious

:03:05.:03:06.

He thinks allowing 999 operators more time to assess calls before

:03:07.:03:12.

I think it's putting a lot of pressure on the call handlers

:03:13.:03:18.

to ask even more questions again in a very high stress environment.

:03:19.:03:22.

If they are still assessing you for that four-minute period

:03:23.:03:25.

when usually an ambulance would already have been dispatched,

:03:26.:03:27.

it's not a case of if we have another casualty or fatality,

:03:28.:03:30.

Currently the most serious 999 calls are categorised as Red 1 or Red 2.

:03:31.:03:38.

These require an ambulance to arrive within eight minutes.

:03:39.:03:42.

Normally an ambulance is automatically despatched

:03:43.:03:45.

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

:03:46.:03:49.

to four minutes to assess the seriousness of the situation.

:03:50.:03:52.

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

:03:53.:03:57.

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

:03:58.:04:00.

set for responding to people suffering from chest pains,

:04:01.:04:03.

having a stroke, or suffering a major burn.

:04:04.:04:08.

NHS managers say this change will prevent multiple ambulances

:04:09.:04:11.

But the union that represents ambulance crew and call handlers

:04:12.:04:17.

It will help in a little way, but it's not the answer,

:04:18.:04:23.

Unless we can clear the beds in hospital,

:04:24.:04:26.

when they do get to A, then they will just sit in A

:04:27.:04:29.

Unless we can get community sorted they'll just sit in a hospital bed.

:04:30.:04:33.

The whole chain needs to be looked at.

:04:34.:04:36.

If deemed a success, this change to the way

:04:37.:04:38.

Ambulance Services can respond to calls could be rolled

:04:39.:04:40.

There'll be no investigation into potential police misconduct

:04:41.:04:47.

in relation to the 1985 Bradford City fire disaster.

:04:48.:04:50.

56 football fans died, including two Lincoln City supporters.

:04:51.:04:55.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission says there is no

:04:56.:04:58.

indication of potential misconduct by individual officers.

:04:59.:05:04.

The councillor who was expelled from the Conservative Party

:05:05.:05:06.

after posting an offensive tweet following the death of MP

:05:07.:05:10.

Jo Cox says he has no intention of resigning.

:05:11.:05:13.

Dominic Peacock has written to the chief executive

:05:14.:05:16.

of East Riding Council saying he has received overwhelming

:05:17.:05:18.

support from ward residents and he has described his

:05:19.:05:21.

Last month a council committee said he should stand

:05:22.:05:27.

Controversial plans for a visitor centre on land near to the Spurn

:05:28.:05:32.

peninsula have been approved by East Riding Council.

:05:33.:05:36.

It's the second time the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust has

:05:37.:05:39.

sought approval for its plans after its initial

:05:40.:05:41.

There have been more than 700 objections from local residents

:05:42.:05:47.

Our environment correspondent, Paul Murphy, reports.

:05:48.:05:53.

There is actually level two and level three.

:05:54.:05:55.

As opponents to the visitor centre emerged from the council's planning

:05:56.:05:58.

meeting, it was clear the decision had not gone their way.

:05:59.:06:02.

They believe this is the wrong building, in the wrong place,

:06:03.:06:05.

and will cause great harm to a sensitive and unique habitat.

:06:06.:06:10.

We love visitors, people are used to visitors

:06:11.:06:12.

We don't think, sort of, they need any more facilities.

:06:13.:06:19.

They will have to do a lot to encourage us

:06:20.:06:22.

Nobody who is in their right mind wants it to happen.

:06:23.:06:27.

We are all very sad that we are going to lose

:06:28.:06:30.

For more than three years local residents and many people

:06:31.:06:34.

from outside of this area have protested at the Trust's proposal.

:06:35.:06:38.

There were more than 2,000 formal objections.

:06:39.:06:42.

This is what the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust says their ?900,000 visitor

:06:43.:06:46.

The Trust believes it will greatly enhance the experience of coming

:06:47.:06:51.

to Spurn and that it is well-suited to a new generation of visitors

:06:52.:06:56.

who want home comforts as well as wilderness.

:06:57.:07:00.

We are delighted with the consent today made by the council.

:07:01.:07:05.

We believe this gives Spurn a much brighter future.

:07:06.:07:09.

We will ensure Spurn's many visitors have a safe,

:07:10.:07:12.

an informative and enjoyable experience for many years to come.

:07:13.:07:16.

It's claimed that more than 90% of the people living in Kilnsea

:07:17.:07:20.

where the centre will be built object to it.

:07:21.:07:23.

The Yorkshire Wildlife Trust now faces a big challenge to win

:07:24.:07:27.

the hearts and minds of a community where there is a great deal

:07:28.:07:31.

Despite winning on the night the Tigers couldn't

:07:32.:07:41.

overcome a two-goal deficit against Manchester United this

:07:42.:07:44.

evening to make it to Wembley but it was not to be.

:07:45.:07:47.

How disappointed were fans tonight?

:07:48.:07:57.

I think they were really happy. That's the first time Hull City have

:07:58.:08:06.

beaten Manchester United since the 1974/75 season. Let me show you how

:08:07.:08:13.

tonight's victory unfolded. First of all a penalty kick for Tom

:08:14.:08:17.

Huddleston. He had a hand in what was the Manchester United equaliser

:08:18.:08:22.

but then a quite brilliant piece of football. There was Niasse to

:08:23.:08:31.

finish. That was some volley. That is why fans are optimistic about

:08:32.:08:34.

what they saw. You know, it was a

:08:35.:08:35.

silly goal they gave How impressed were

:08:36.:08:38.

you by what you saw? Very, really. They deserved

:08:39.:08:41.

that win. It was an improved

:08:42.:08:44.

performance from them. It was a good game.

:08:45.:08:45.

That's why they won. You will not believe it but these

:08:46.:08:55.

two meet again in the Premier League next week. Before then it is the FA

:08:56.:09:02.

Cup tie at Fulham. This team is certainly starting to play well for

:09:03.:09:06.

its new manager, Marco Silva. Simon, its new manager, Marco Silva. Simon,

:09:07.:09:09.

thank you very much indeed. Carol Vorderman has taken a petition

:09:10.:09:10.

to Downing Street with almost 250,000 people demanding

:09:11.:09:13.

a knighthood for the last Johnny Johnson, who was born

:09:14.:09:15.

near Horncastle was part of the bombing crew that destroyed

:09:16.:09:20.

some of the German dams He has been nominated for

:09:21.:09:22.

a knighthood but wasn't recognised It's just an insult, really,

:09:23.:09:26.

not only to him, but also to those with whom he fought,

:09:27.:09:33.

and those who absolutely adore him. And, yet, for civil servants,

:09:34.:09:36.

particularly the communications director for the former

:09:37.:09:41.

Prime Minister to receive There's so much interest in that we

:09:42.:09:43.

will continue to watch it. Now a look at the weather forecast

:09:44.:09:57.

with Keeley Donovan. After a bitterly cold day today,

:09:58.:10:00.

it won't eventually feel quite as cold tomorrow and perhaps some

:10:01.:10:03.

brightness around as well. That is because clear spells

:10:04.:10:06.

are spreading up from the south We still could get the odd

:10:07.:10:08.

wintry flurry, the odd bit of frozen drizzle,

:10:09.:10:12.

so with a frost overnight there could be a bit

:10:13.:10:14.

of ice into tomorrow. A cold start, subzero temperatures

:10:15.:10:16.

through the morning but temperatures A lot of dry weather,

:10:17.:10:19.

some brightness around. We can't rule out the odd shower,

:10:20.:10:22.

they could be wintry through the morning and even though

:10:23.:10:24.

numerically it will be milder, not quite as cold as it has been today,

:10:25.:10:28.

I still think it will feel really quite warm, particularly

:10:29.:10:32.

through the morning. Temperatures on the rise

:10:33.:10:34.

into the weekend. A wet start Saturday,

:10:35.:10:37.

then an improvement. Look North is back

:10:38.:10:38.

tomorrow at 6.25 as usual. roundabouts, higher temperatures but

:10:39.:10:49.

some rain as well. Good evening. It's been dry so far

:10:50.:11:14.

this January but as it draws to a close it looks like we will see some

:11:15.:11:20.

rain at last. It's been an interesting today a bitterly cold in

:11:21.:11:23.

Norfolk, way we kept the grey cloud all day and the grey cloud gave a

:11:24.:11:30.

dusting of snow in places. This is a lovely picture sent in from Sutton

:11:31.:11:33.

Coldfield. Rob Wales and much of Scotland it's been a beautiful day,

:11:34.:11:36.
