A third case of bird flu has been confirmed at a farm in Lincolnshire.
The Government says it's affecting a farm near Boston.
A three-kilometre protection zone has been put in around the farm
but officials say there is a very low risk to humans.
What more do we know about this latest outbreak in the county?
This is a third case of bird flu that has been confirmed in
Lincolnshire in the last six weeks. This evening DEFRA says the disease
has been found at a turkey rearing farm near Boston. It is estimated
the flock contains more than 19,000 birds. Some have already died the
rest will have to be cold. It is just ten days since an outbreak of
bird flu was confirmed at Low Farm near Louth. They're more than 6000
turkeys were infected. Another case was reported five miles from there
in December. I've spoken to DEFRA this evening and they say an
investigation is underway to determine the source of this latest
outbreak but Public Health England says the risk to people is very low.
We will continue to follow the story.
The Yorkshire Ambulance Service says paramedics will no longer have
to get to call-outs within eight minutes unless they're
The pilot scheme will see response times relaxed,
giving call handlers more time to assess patients over the phone
With 6,000 square miles to cover, the Yorkshire Ambulance Service
can struggle to get to 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, clasping at his chest.
It's something I wouldn't want anybody to go through.
It's something I still look back on now and it's very distressing.
Photographer Iain Poole knows plenty about the anxious
He thinks allowing 999 operators more time to assess calls before
I think it's putting a lot of pressure on the call handlers
to ask even more questions again in a very high stress environment.
If they are still assessing you for that four-minute period
when usually an ambulance would already have been dispatched,
it's not a case of if we have another casualty or fatality,
Currently the most serious 999 calls are categorised as Red 1 or Red 2.
These require an ambulance to arrive within eight minutes.
Normally an ambulance is automatically despatched
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
But the union that represents ambulance crew and call handlers
It will help in a little way, but it's not the answer,
Unless we can clear the beds in hospital,
when they do get to A, then they will just sit in A
Unless we can get community sorted they'll just sit in a hospital bed.
The whole chain needs to be looked at.
If deemed a success, this change to the way
Ambulance Services can respond to calls could be rolled

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, reports.
There is actually level two and level three.
As opponents to the visitor centre emerged from the council's planning
meeting, it was clear the decision had not gone their way.
They believe this is the wrong building, in the wrong place,
and will cause great harm to a sensitive and unique habitat.
We love visitors, people are used to visitors
We don't think, sort of, they need any more facilities.
They will have to do a lot to encourage us
Nobody who is in their right mind wants it to happen.
We are all very sad that we are going to lose
For more than three years local residents and many people
from outside of this area have protested at the Trust's proposal.
There were more than 2,000 formal objections.
This is what the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust says their ?900,000 visitor
The Trust believes it will greatly enhance the experience of coming
to Spurn and that it is well-suited to a new generation of visitors
who want home comforts as well as wilderness.
We are delighted with the consent today made by the council.
We believe this gives Spurn a much brighter future.
We will ensure Spurn's many visitors have a safe,
an informative and enjoyable experience for many years to come.
It's claimed that more than 90% of the people living in Kilnsea
where the centre will be built object to it.
The Yorkshire Wildlife Trust now faces a big challenge to win
the hearts and minds of a community where there is a great deal
Despite winning on the night the Tigers couldn't
overcome a two-goal deficit against Manchester United this
evening to make it to Wembley but it was not to be.
How disappointed were fans tonight?
I think they were really happy. That's the first time Hull City have
beaten Manchester United since the 1974/75 season. Let me show you how
tonight's victory unfolded. First of all a penalty kick for Tom
Huddleston. He had a hand in what was the Manchester United equaliser
but then a quite brilliant piece of football. There was Niasse to
finish. That was some volley. That is why fans are optimistic about
what they saw. You know, it was a
silly goal they gave How impressed were
you by what you saw? Very, really. They deserved
that win. It was an improved
performance from them. It was a good game.
That's why they won. You will not believe it but these
two meet again in the Premier League next week. Before then it is the FA
Cup tie at Fulham. This team is certainly starting to play well for
its new manager, Marco Silva. Simon, its new manager, Marco Silva. Simon,
thank you very much indeed. Carol Vorderman has taken a petition
to Downing Street with almost 250,000 people demanding

some of the German dams He has been nominated for
a knighthood but wasn't recognised It's just an insult, really,
not only to him, but also to those with whom he fought,
and those who absolutely adore him. And, yet, for civil servants,
particularly the communications director for the former
Prime Minister to receive There's so much interest in that we
will continue to watch it. Now a look at the weather forecast
with Keeley Donovan. After a bitterly cold day today,
it won't eventually feel quite as cold tomorrow and perhaps some
brightness around as well. That is because clear spells
are spreading up from the south We still could get the odd
wintry flurry, the odd bit of frozen drizzle,
so with a frost overnight there could be a bit
of ice into tomorrow. A cold start, subzero temperatures
through the morning but temperatures A lot of dry weather,
some brightness around. We can't rule out the odd shower,
they could be wintry through the morning and even though
numerically it will be milder, not quite as cold as it has been today,
I still think it will feel really quite warm, particularly
through the morning. Temperatures on the rise
into the weekend. A wet start Saturday,
then an improvement. Look North is back
tomorrow at 6.25 as usual. roundabouts, higher temperatures but
some rain as well. Good evening. It's been dry so far
this January but as it draws to a close it looks like we will see some
rain at last. It's been an interesting today a bitterly cold in
Norfolk, way we kept the grey cloud all day and the grey cloud gave a
dusting of snow in places. This is a lovely picture sent in from Sutton
Coldfield. Rob Wales and much of Scotland it's been a beautiful day,
