Now the latest from the Look North newsroom.

:00:00.:00:00.

Security at the Humber Bridge is to be reviewed after teenagers

:00:07.:00:09.

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

:00:10.:00:15.

If they fell off from there, we wouldn't be looking

:00:16.:00:20.

We'd have to recover somebody, and that's the last thing we need.

:00:21.:00:28.

The tiny patch that could save stroke victims that's

:00:29.:00:30.

What a dreadful day it's been, but a big improvement on the way for

:00:31.:00:41.

tomorrow. Join me for the latest. A group of young men

:00:42.:00:48.

who climbed 500 feet to the top of the Humber Bridge have been

:00:49.:00:51.

condemned for risking their lives They posted a video on the internet

:00:52.:00:54.

in which they were seen climbing the supporting cables

:00:55.:01:01.

without ropes or safety gear. Matthew Bone is at

:01:02.:01:05.

the Humber tonight. It was for climbers who, earlier

:01:06.:01:19.

measures round here, because there and climbed right to the top of

:01:20.:01:35.

are questions of the safety not just of the climbers but people who may

:01:36.:01:35.

have been passing by underneath. This was more than

:01:36.:01:41.

just a student prank. This is footage from the top

:01:42.:01:43.

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

:01:44.:01:46.

and last night posted on social media by

:01:47.:01:48.

19-year-old Harry Gallagher. Online, he's known as Night Scape,

:01:49.:01:50.

and he's well-known But critics aren't so impressed,

:01:51.:01:55.

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

:01:56.:01:59.

extreme videos to attract If they fell off from there,

:02:00.:02:02.

we wouldn't be looking We'd have to recover somebody,

:02:03.:02:07.

and that's the last thing we need. There could be somebody genuine

:02:08.:02:11.

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

:02:12.:02:14.

from the Humber Bridge Board said: Today, climbers at Hull's Rockcity

:02:15.:02:30.

also condemned the stunt, saying that there are better

:02:31.:02:33.

and safer ways to get Obviously, we are all harnessed up

:02:34.:02:36.

when we are on the ropes, which does make it really safe,

:02:37.:02:41.

whereas the daredevils obviously didn't have any harnesses

:02:42.:02:43.

while they were 500 feet in the air. Going that extra mile to take

:02:44.:02:49.

pictures of yourself Statistics suggest that it's led

:02:50.:02:51.

to the deaths of 49 people globally since 2014,

:02:52.:02:55.

of whom 75% were men and half Humberside Police say they're now

:02:56.:03:00.

working with the Humber Bridge Board to review security,

:03:01.:03:07.

but are reminding people just how dangerous taking

:03:08.:03:10.

this sort of footage is. When it comes to questions of police

:03:11.:03:25.

action here, we understand that is unlikely because it would depend on

:03:26.:03:28.

evidence of criminal damage, which we don't believe to have taken

:03:29.:03:33.

place. It's hard to underestimate just how dangerous this was, not

:03:34.:03:38.

just for the climbers but for people below. It could have caused a

:03:39.:03:42.

serious traffic accident on the bridge, or if the climber had fallen

:03:43.:03:47.

into the water, the emergency services would have been called out

:03:48.:03:52.

and been unable to attend another emergency at the time.

:03:53.:03:55.

Matthew, thank you. Sergej Komkov from Hull explores

:03:56.:03:57.

abandoned buildings which are often He gave me his view of the teenagers

:03:58.:04:00.

who climbed the bridge. Looking at the video,

:04:01.:04:05.

I think they looked very young for the age to be experienced

:04:06.:04:07.

to climb any heights But you do the same sort

:04:08.:04:10.

of thing, don't you? You go into derelict

:04:11.:04:20.

buildings, old buildings? I think it's a difference

:04:21.:04:22.

into going into a derelict building and something called roofing,

:04:23.:04:25.

because what they have done is roofing, from the word "roof",

:04:26.:04:28.

so being high up, and urban exploration is more going into sort

:04:29.:04:31.

of crumbling, abandoned buildings. But you've been into old buildings

:04:32.:04:37.

like the old Clarence sandmill, where you could have had an accident

:04:38.:04:39.

or fallen down, and people watching will be saying,

:04:40.:04:45.

it's just irresponsible. I think I would be the person

:04:46.:04:45.

to kind of be responsible after that if charges were to be

:04:46.:04:49.

pressed against me, Do you think about the risks

:04:50.:04:52.

involved when you are I think it's because we all express

:04:53.:04:55.

ourselves in one way or another, I record it with my camera,

:04:56.:05:05.

both the interior and exterior. These guys on the top of the bridge,

:05:06.:05:11.

would they have got a buzz from it? Yes, I think so, because they do

:05:12.:05:17.

have obviously their social network page, where they share it,

:05:18.:05:20.

they get likes. And I think that is kind of

:05:21.:05:23.

a big push as well to this, because they get thousands

:05:24.:05:27.

of people following them. Are you worried about getting caught

:05:28.:05:29.

and being prosecuted? Just finally, what do you say

:05:30.:05:31.

to those people watching who say that people like yourself and these

:05:32.:05:45.

lads are being irresponsible, I think that one day their parents

:05:46.:05:48.

will get a really sad phone call. Sergej, very good

:05:49.:05:57.

to see you tonight. An ejection seat manufacturer has

:05:58.:06:07.

denied breaching health and safety regulations following the death

:06:08.:06:09.

of a Red Arrows pilot. Flight Lieutenant Sean Cunningham

:06:10.:06:12.

died after being ejected from his aircraft at RAF

:06:13.:06:15.

Scampton in 2011. This morning, Martin Baker

:06:16.:06:17.

Aircraft Ltd pleaded not guilty The trial is due to start

:06:18.:06:20.

in January next year. A woman accused of hitting her

:06:21.:06:26.

stepdaughter with a hammer has Jennifer Harrison, who's 30 and seen

:06:27.:06:29.

here in a wheelchair, is accused of hitting the girl

:06:30.:06:33.

at their home in Bempton. Her partner, Deborah Harrison,

:06:34.:06:36.

the girl's mother - seen walking - Today, Jennifer told

:06:37.:06:39.

Hull Crown Court she loved the girl. But the prosecution accused

:06:40.:06:45.

her of being jealous The NHS in Lincolnshire says

:06:46.:06:48.

the majority of GP practices in the county are back to normal

:06:49.:06:54.

following the cyber attack. NHS computers were shut down

:06:55.:06:56.

by a virus on Friday. Doctors have got back

:06:57.:07:00.

into clinical systems, but are asking people to be patient

:07:01.:07:03.

as some are still slow. Council tip workers in Boston

:07:04.:07:09.

had to call in the bomb squad for a second time,

:07:10.:07:12.

after World War Two explosives were dumped

:07:13.:07:14.

by members of the public. A controlled explosion

:07:15.:07:17.

was needed to get rid of the shells at a recycling centre

:07:18.:07:20.

in Boston last week. Lincolnshire County Council says

:07:21.:07:23.

people should call the police if they want to dispose

:07:24.:07:26.

of ammunition. A tiny patch, like a sticking

:07:27.:07:31.

plaster, could save the lives of people who have a stroke,

:07:32.:07:34.

and now a trial of them in Lincolnshire is spreading to

:07:35.:07:41.

the ambulance service in Yorkshire. Around 40,000 people

:07:42.:07:43.

in the UK die as a result of a stroke every year,

:07:44.:07:46.

as our health correspondent, Just like a fire,

:07:47.:07:47.

it's time to call 999... Every minute counts

:07:48.:07:55.

when you have a stroke. The faster you act, the more

:07:56.:07:58.

of the person you save. Now, almost 50 paramedics

:07:59.:08:01.

in Lincolnshire - like Marc - have been equipped with

:08:02.:08:05.

a revolutionary new stroke treatment, and it's all

:08:06.:08:08.

contained in one tiny patch. 5 mg of GTN, life-saving

:08:09.:08:13.

drug, 39p per patch. Place that onto the shoulder

:08:14.:08:19.

blade of the patient. They won't feel anything

:08:20.:08:22.

at all, it will just be as if we were applying

:08:23.:08:25.

a normal plaster. So the drug will be absorbed

:08:26.:08:27.

into the skin, and the best way to try and describe it is the artery

:08:28.:08:30.

as a vessel. If a blood clot gets

:08:31.:08:33.

trapped in that artery, this medication will allow that

:08:34.:08:35.

artery to open, it vasodilates, which will hopefully free the clot,

:08:36.:08:39.

if it's free-moving. The drug GTN which is contained

:08:40.:08:42.

in these patches is already used to help heart patients,

:08:43.:08:45.

because it's been shown to help lower blood pressure

:08:46.:08:48.

and open up blood vessels. And it's hoped the use of these

:08:49.:08:49.

patches could help double survival A stroke occurs when the blood

:08:50.:08:54.

supply to part of your brain is cut off, either through a clot,

:08:55.:09:01.

or a burst blood vessel. Strokes can cause permanent

:09:02.:09:04.

disability in around And not everyone will survive -

:09:05.:09:07.

around 1 in 8 will die within 30 days of having a stroke.

:09:08.:09:13.

For stroke survivors, like Jim Howard, from Hull,

:09:14.:09:16.

the new treatment offers real hope. Any thing that will help the patient

:09:17.:09:20.

who's had the stroke before he gets But before this treatment can be

:09:21.:09:25.

more widely adopted - Marc and other paramedics need

:09:26.:09:36.

to recruit many more stroke patients to the trial so their recovery can

:09:37.:09:39.

be monitored over 12 months. Early results, though,

:09:40.:09:44.

suggest the patches Vicky Johnson,

about Friday's forecast. There is Thursday's little

:10:04.:10:12.

ridge there, but Friday, we could well see more rain

:10:13.:10:14.

pushing up from the south. That rain eventually

:10:15.:10:16.

clearing out of the way. The sky slowly clearing

:10:17.:10:21.

from the west, and we will see temperatures around 8 or 9

warmer. Before today, many gardeners were

crying out for rain. Some of the those garden may now be water

logged. And Lincolnshire was one of wettest places with 40 millimetres.

:11:21.:11:25.

That is nearly a month's worth of rain in 24 hours. Some difficult

:11:26.:11:32.

travelling conditions. Some parts of north-west England stayed dry. This

:11:33.:11:37.

was the main rain-maker. It is pulling away. Tomorrow a day
