There are calls tonight for care homes to be run by the Government

:00:00.:00:15.

after a dementia sufferer from East Yorkshire

:00:16.:00:17.

was forced to move four times in the last year of his life.

:00:18.:00:20.

Pat Maguire from Beverley says his father-in-law's condition

:00:21.:00:23.

worsened significantly because of the moves.

:00:24.:00:27.

A number of privately run residential homes in the area have

:00:28.:00:29.

closed in the last year and now Mr Maguire says adult social care

:00:30.:00:33.

More from our political reporter, Sarah Sanderson.

:00:34.:00:41.

Pat Maguire has spoken out after he and his family chose

:00:42.:00:44.

to find residential care in Beverley in East Yorkshire for his

:00:45.:00:48.

But because of issues surrounding closures and suitability,

:00:49.:00:55.

his father-in-law had to be moved four times after initially settling

:00:56.:00:59.

While we can't ever prove it, we honestly believe that the moves

:01:00.:01:05.

that he had to undergo affected him and made his condition worse.

:01:06.:01:10.

Yes, they give money to local authorities

:01:11.:01:12.

but it's the Government, through taxation, that ought to be

:01:13.:01:15.

caring, just as we expect them to do for small children,

:01:16.:01:19.

the young, we ought to be providing the same level of care

:01:20.:01:23.

Funding issues have been blamed for a number of care homes

:01:24.:01:31.

And earlier this month, Jeremy Corbyn said a Labour

:01:32.:01:35.

Government would take failing private care homes into public

:01:36.:01:39.

ownership in order to maintain social care protection.

:01:40.:01:42.

But the Conservative MP for Beverley and Holderness says

:01:43.:01:46.

The Government's absolutely committed to getting this right.

:01:47.:01:50.

If you look on the ground in Beverley, despite the current

:01:51.:01:53.

problems, in the next few weeks we're going to see new places coming

:01:54.:01:56.

forward and over the next years I expect to see a much improved

:01:57.:02:00.

situation and the Government is playing its part in doing that.

:02:01.:02:03.

In a statement, the Department of Health says...

:02:04.:02:30.

Meanwhile, for those who are dealing with current adult

:02:31.:02:32.

social care problems, that long-term solution

:02:33.:02:35.

Government officials have begun the process of culling of almost

:02:36.:02:46.

20,000 turkeys after bird flu was found on farm in Lincolnshire.

:02:47.:02:50.

A three-kilometre exclusion zone is in place around a farm close

:02:51.:02:54.

It's the third case of bird flu to be identified

:02:55.:02:58.

in the county, after two cases were confirmed near Louth.

:02:59.:03:01.

DEFRA are investigating the cause of the latest outbreak.

:03:02.:03:06.

Investigators are examining whether a fire at a semi-demolished

:03:07.:03:09.

Fire fighters were sent to the Grand Central building

:03:10.:03:15.

on the seafront during the early hours of this morning.

:03:16.:03:18.

Plans to improve one of Hull's busiest roads have gone on display.

:03:19.:03:25.

The proposal for the A63 includes sinking the main road into a deep

:03:26.:03:28.

cutting to improve the flow of traffic around the city.

:03:29.:03:31.

There'll also be a footbridge between the city centre

:03:32.:03:33.

Because the design is sinking the road seven metres in very,

:03:34.:03:39.

very poor ground conditions, we are quite rightly concerned

:03:40.:03:43.

with the history of schemes that have failed in the past but we've

:03:44.:03:47.

spent an awful lot of time with the contractors carrying out

:03:48.:03:50.

very detailed ground investigations and that has

:03:51.:03:52.

A dog rescued from a designer puppy farm has given birth to four puppies

:03:53.:04:02.

Ruby, who's a chihuahua cross, was kept in squalid conditions,

:04:03.:04:08.

with no health check ups with 48 other dogs for breeding.

:04:09.:04:12.

Designer cross breeds can earn criminals up to ?300 a time.

:04:13.:04:15.

Healthy and friendly, these puppies were saved

:04:16.:04:21.

Their mum, Ruby, was rescued from a puppy factory.

:04:22.:04:26.

If they had been born there, they would have had no health checks

:04:27.:04:29.

and the breeders would have seen them as breeding machines.

:04:30.:04:32.

People get them and they come here and say I've got Jackahuahua

:04:33.:04:37.

and you're thinking you've got a cross breed dog.

:04:38.:04:40.

They don't see them as that, they market them as being

:04:41.:04:43.

Most of the time, you are getting a puppy that has never seen a vet,

:04:44.:04:48.

It's never been flead, never been wormed.

:04:49.:04:51.

Nothing, you've got no medical history at all,

:04:52.:04:54.

until you take it to your own vet and then they say there's all these

:04:55.:04:58.

Designer breeds like Pugs have become very popular.

:04:59.:05:01.

So puppies, like Topaz, who look a bit like Pugs,

:05:02.:05:04.

The Kennel Club estimates that up to 1.5 million

:05:05.:05:12.

sold by dealers in 2014 and these are likely to have

:05:13.:05:16.

Nearly half the people who bought a puppy that year did not

:05:17.:05:21.

Those dogs bought from pet shops, or the internet, are four times

:05:22.:05:25.

more likely to suffer from the potentially

:05:26.:05:28.

The problem is really, puppy farming is enabled

:05:29.:05:33.

This is puppies sold away from their mums.

:05:34.:05:38.

And, remember, the majority of puppy farms are legal, they're licensed.

:05:39.:05:42.

The majority of people selling without their mum

:05:43.:05:45.

As long as this chain continues, puppy farming is enabled

:05:46.:05:50.

These dogs now all have homes to go to and have been

:05:51.:05:56.

People who buy a puppy from a seller off the internet take the risk

:05:57.:06:00.

that they may have come from a puppy farm like Ruby did.

:06:01.:06:03.

Victoria Holland, BBC Look North, Hull.

:06:04.:06:07.

West Ham have completed the signing of Hull midfielder Robert Snodgrass

:06:08.:06:11.

The Scotland player has signed a three-and-a-half-year

:06:12.:06:17.

He's been one of Hull's key players so far scoring

:06:18.:06:22.

Now a look at the weather forecast with Keeley Donovan.

:06:23.:06:27.

After a bitterly cold week it's set to get much less cold over

:06:28.:06:32.

the weekend but with that some cloud and rain, much more

:06:33.:06:35.

So through this evening and overnight, further spells

:06:36.:06:39.

of rain and drizzle, a lot of cloud holding temperatures

:06:40.:06:42.

up higher than they have been over the last few days,

:06:43.:06:45.

down to two or three degrees and all of this is much milder air

:06:46.:06:48.

which will continue to affect us through tomorrow.

:06:49.:06:50.

Through the morning cloudy with outbreaks of rain and drizzle.

:06:51.:06:53.

A slow improvement through tomorrow, drier conditions gradually

:06:54.:06:56.

developing, the rain becoming more light, patchy and tending to peter

:06:57.:07:00.

out through the day but I don't think we'll get very much

:07:01.:07:03.

brightness, I think we'll have to wait until after dark for these

:07:04.:07:06.

On Sunday, a fine start to the day, clouding over, the risk of rain.

:07:07.:07:12.

That is all from the lake deemed this evening. Look North is back at

:07:13.:07:28.

5:20pm. I hope you can join us then. For now, have a lovely evening.

:07:29.:07:30.

Goodbye. Good evening. Not many would argue

:07:31.:07:46.

that January hasn't been dry, but today, many of us had our first

:07:47.:07:50.

significant rain for some time, because the transition is on from

:07:51.:07:54.

cold, Continental dry air to milder Atlantic air, but the transition is

:07:55.:07:59.

a slow one. So we have had ice today, and freezing fog, in northern

:08:00.:08:03.

England. We had a little sunshine as well in Norfolk, but we still have

:08:04.:08:07.

the cold air around and about in the north. All this rain you can see,

:08:08.:08:13.

which is giving is a wet day in some areas, 10-15 millimetres of rain has

:08:14.:08:16.

fallen, as it comes north there could be some winter it issues. Snow

:08:17.:08:20.

already falling over Scotland, possibly over northern England,

:08:21.:08:26.

possibly some sleet over lower areas and fog. Not particularly nice, and

:08:27.:08:30.

some icy conditions to contend with late in the night across Northern

:08:31.:08:34.

Ireland, as the rain clears away. Again, a word of warning there could

:08:35.:08:38.

be some ice around in the morning if

:08:39.:08:39.
