The headlines from BBC Look North this Tuesday lunchtime.

:00:00.:00:00.

Plans for just one large Lincolnshire-wide council

:00:00.:00:08.

are defended following criticism by district leaders.

:00:09.:00:11.

This is a way you can save a good amount of money without affecting

:00:12.:00:15.

And toy makers from our region say sales are up as they take part

:00:16.:00:22.

With Brexit everyone expected demand would go down.

:00:23.:00:28.

In actual fact, it's gone up by between 5% and 6%.

:00:29.:00:42.

Lincoln's city council leader has accused the county council of acting

:00:43.:00:45.

"rogue" over a proposed shake-up of local government in the area.

:00:46.:00:50.

The leader of Lincolnshire County Council wants to hold a referendum

:00:51.:00:53.

on whether the seven district councils should be replaced

:00:54.:00:56.

Martin Hill claims the move would save ?150 million,

:00:57.:01:02.

More from our political editor, Tim Iredale.

:01:03.:01:08.

There are seven district councils covering Lincolnshire

:01:09.:01:12.

plus the county council, so is it time to merge

:01:13.:01:14.

The leader of Lincolnshire County Council wants

:01:15.:01:18.

I think the reason we are doing it is because we keep having these

:01:19.:01:23.

conversations all the time about the difficult financial

:01:24.:01:25.

situation all councils are in and having to find ways

:01:26.:01:28.

of saving money, which means difficult decisions.

:01:29.:01:31.

This is a way you can save a good amount of money without affecting

:01:32.:01:35.

At present the district council's provide localised services

:01:36.:01:42.

such as bin collections, housing and planning.

:01:43.:01:45.

The county council is responsible for big budget services such

:01:46.:01:48.

The idea of abolishing district councils in Lincolnshire

:01:49.:01:54.

You know, it is the county council acting like a rogue council,

:01:55.:02:00.

it seems to me because it is not the way we have been

:02:01.:02:03.

We have done it on a collaborative basis.

:02:04.:02:06.

This is a unilateral move by the county council.

:02:07.:02:08.

I think it's the start of their campaign for what they have

:02:09.:02:11.

sought for a long time, which is a county unitary

:02:12.:02:14.

North Hykeham is part of the North Kesteven district

:02:15.:02:19.

so how do people here feel about having all their services

:02:20.:02:22.

delivered by one so-called super council for the

:02:23.:02:24.

I think you would have less say in what goes on locally

:02:25.:02:31.

You know, I think the smaller councils are more geared up

:02:32.:02:39.

to the smaller districts, sort of thing.

:02:40.:02:43.

If we want the council tax down, yes.

:02:44.:02:45.

If the proposal is approved by the county council next month,

:02:46.:02:53.

then a referendum would take place in May on the same day

:02:54.:02:56.

However, the result wouldn't be binding and any final decision

:02:57.:03:01.

on scrapping Lincolnshire's district councils would rest

:03:02.:03:04.

Tim Iredale, BBC Look North, Lincoln.

:03:05.:03:09.

A man has been jailed for life for murdering a woman in Skegness.

:03:10.:03:13.

Casey Scott stabbed and strangled Lenuta Haidemac last summer

:03:14.:03:17.

The judge ordered that he serve at least 19 years in prison.

:03:18.:03:23.

Campaigners fighting to stop beagles being bred for animal experiments

:03:24.:03:27.

at a site in East Yorkshire have lost their fight.

:03:28.:03:31.

A judge has denied protesters leave to appeal the decision

:03:32.:03:34.

to allow B Universal to expand their site at Grimston.

:03:35.:03:37.

Cruelty Free International say they're disappointed by the ruling.

:03:38.:03:43.

Manufacturers and distributors of children's toys in our area

:03:44.:03:45.

say they've seen huge demand over the last year.

:03:46.:03:47.

Figures released today show the industry grew with sales

:03:48.:03:50.

Hundred of companies will be showing off their latest products

:03:51.:03:55.

at the Toy Fair in London today, hoping to drum up even more trade

:03:56.:03:59.

Our business correspondent, Leanne Brown, reports.

:04:00.:04:05.

It's a chance for toy makers to show of their latest designs.

:04:06.:04:08.

The fair in London is the UK's only dedicated trade show

:04:09.:04:12.

and Lincolnshire firm, Plum Products, will be showcasing

:04:13.:04:16.

We have got some examples here of a new range that we are looking

:04:17.:04:22.

An example here is a mud pie kitchen.

:04:23.:04:26.

It starts life quite open and some of the scribbles and sketches

:04:27.:04:29.

you can see around us here, we literally could go

:04:30.:04:31.

through 50/60 sketches and end up with perhaps two out of those.

:04:32.:04:36.

The company was responsible for the trampoline in

:04:37.:04:43.

the John Lewis Christmas advert, which they say had

:04:44.:04:45.

It changed the landscape significantly.

:04:46.:04:51.

I think it very much put trampolines on kids' Christmas present lists.

:04:52.:04:56.

We saw a halo effect across all our resellers and sold many,

:04:57.:05:00.

many more times the volume than we would ever

:05:01.:05:04.

But despite record growth there is concern over

:05:05.:05:09.

This company in Brigg market sells wooden toys from Germany.

:05:10.:05:15.

Wooden toys have become very popular now, especially because people

:05:16.:05:19.

For us, the biggest problem with Brexit

:05:20.:05:25.

Will there be a free trade agreement straight away,

:05:26.:05:31.

All those things affect business dramatically.

:05:32.:05:36.

The industry faces a difficult year ahead but companies

:05:37.:05:38.

are confident their innovation can keep children interested.

:05:39.:05:43.

You've been getting in touch with us about jail sentences for motorists

:05:44.:05:49.

Jessica Danby died after her moped was hit by a car trying

:05:50.:05:55.

The driver pleaded guilty to dangerous driving

:05:56.:06:00.

and was sentenced to two years in jail.

:06:01.:06:02.

Jessica's mother says that's not enough.

:06:03.:06:05.

Lincoln City fans have been queuing since the early hours

:06:06.:06:49.

of this morning for FA Cup fourth round tickets.

:06:50.:06:53.

Hundreds of supporters have spent the last few hours waiting

:06:54.:06:55.

for tickets for Saturday's game against Brighton.

:06:56.:07:01.

Until some legends brought a little fire, kept everyone warm.

:07:02.:07:07.

You know, to get tickets for this game is a pretty big deal.

:07:08.:07:11.

We are going up, mate, we are going up.

:07:12.:07:13.

Lincoln City are in National League action at Barrow tonight.

:07:14.:07:18.

A win for Danny Cowley's side will take them seven points clear

:07:19.:07:21.

Now a look at the weather forecast with Keeley Donovan.

:07:22.:07:33.

Hello, a pleasant crisp winter's afternoon to come. A lot of dry

:07:34.:07:41.

weather about. Plenty of sunshine. It did not start off that way, we

:07:42.:07:47.

had plenty of fog but as you see it has now cleared. We will have dry

:07:48.:07:51.

and bright weather this afternoon with a good deal of sunshine. This

:07:52.:07:58.

evening we might see some mysterious we develop. Afternoon temperature is

:07:59.:08:02.

about average, five, 6 degrees are high. This evening, we will see fog

:08:03.:08:08.

anywhere could get some of that. It will tend to lift overnight but

:08:09.:08:13.

around southern parts of Lincolnshire, dense fog will develop

:08:14.:08:18.

overnight and here is where it will stay coldest. Anywhere in the

:08:19.:08:22.

countryside we could get back to freezing. A warning for fog first

:08:23.:08:29.

thing. Further north we will start on the bright note but then tidal

:08:30.:08:32.

spread, particularly across southern parts of Lincolnshire a great day

:08:33.:08:39.

developing. Looking further ahead on Thursday, a cold day, we start to

:08:40.:08:42.

draw southerly winds which mean warmer conditions but the continent

:08:43.:08:49.

around France is cold and we will start to see temperatures climbing

:08:50.:08:50.

into the weekend and more cloud. Now on Look North tonight we'll be

:08:51.:08:52.

looking at the Korean dialect expert who's created a handy guide

:08:53.:08:55.

to being understood in Hull. He says he's made the video to mark

:08:56.:09:07.

the City Of Culture year. It is very funny, do have a look if

of views online. It is very funny, do have a look if

:09:11.:09:21.

you have got a chance but you can see more at 6:30pm. Until then have

:09:22.:09:27.

a lovely afternoon, thank you for watching. Buy buy.
