The headlines from BBC Look North this Thursday lunchtime.

:00:00.:00:00.

East Yorkshire ambulances are given longer to reach patients

:00:00.:00:07.

Plans for a new Spurn Point visitor centre will be considered again

:00:08.:00:15.

And a new, faster lifeboat is on its way to Skegness

:00:16.:00:19.

It's a step change in technology, a step change in safety

:00:20.:00:25.

The Yorkshire Ambulance Service says paramedics will no longer get

:00:26.:00:41.

to call-outs within their eight minute target unless

:00:42.:00:45.

The National Audit Office has warned that some ambulance trusts

:00:46.:00:50.

are unable to cope with demand for their services and it's hoped

:00:51.:00:53.

Call handlers will be given more time to assess individual cases

:00:54.:00:59.

before deciding whether to send an ambulance or not.

:01:00.:01:01.

Our correspondent, Leanne Brown, is here.

:01:02.:01:03.

If you find yourself having to call 999 and ambulance will automatically

:01:04.:01:18.

the dispatched within 60 seconds and calls classed as very serious will

:01:19.:01:23.

need to be responded to in eight minutes but NHS managers say because

:01:24.:01:27.

of this system several ambulances often get sent to the same address

:01:28.:01:32.

and some get stood down en route once it becomes apparent then not

:01:33.:01:36.

needed. Under this pilot call handlers would have up to four

:01:37.:01:39.

minutes to assess the situation and they would be no time frame for when

:01:40.:01:44.

the ambulance might arrive it is -- if it is not life threatening, these

:01:45.:01:50.

are like Burns, if you are suffering from chest pains. If someone is not

:01:51.:01:56.

represent paramedics and the call handlers say this will help a little

:02:10.:02:13.

bit but it is not the answer as there are major problems across the

:02:14.:02:14.

service. It will help in the little way,

:02:15.:02:16.

but it's not the answer. You can't look at the Ambulance

:02:17.:02:18.

Service in isolation. Even if we quicken the service up,

:02:19.:02:22.

and they get to A quicker, unless we make sure that A can

:02:23.:02:25.

receive the patients, they are just going to sit in the back

:02:26.:02:29.

of the ambulances at A Unless we can clear

:02:30.:02:31.

the beds in the hospital, when they do get in A,

:02:32.:02:33.

they will just sit in A Unless we can get the community

:02:34.:02:36.

sorted, they will sit So the whole chain

:02:37.:02:39.

needs to be looked at. This is also being tested by the

:02:40.:02:49.

South Westerns Ambulance Service and West Midland Ambulance Service.

:02:50.:02:50.

If it's seen as a success it will be rolled out across the country.

:02:51.:02:54.

There will be no investigation into potential police misconduct

:02:55.:02:56.

in relation to the 1985 Bradford City fire disaster.

:02:57.:02:58.

56 football fans died, including two Lincoln City supporters.

:02:59.:03:00.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission says there is no

:03:01.:03:03.

indication of potential misconduct by individual police officers.

:03:04.:03:07.

It's after West Yorkshire Police voluntarily referred

:03:08.:03:09.

Controversial proposals for a visitor centre on land

:03:10.:03:14.

near to the Spurn peninsula are being discussed

:03:15.:03:17.

by East Riding Council later this afternoon.

:03:18.:03:20.

It's the second time the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust has

:03:21.:03:23.

sought approval for its plans after its initial

:03:24.:03:25.

There have been more than 700 objections from local residents

:03:26.:03:29.

Here's our environment correspondent, Paul Murphy.

:03:30.:03:34.

It is more than three years since Yorkshire Wildlife Trust first

:03:35.:03:38.

mooted plans for a visitor centre on land to the south of Kilnsea.

:03:39.:03:42.

It's hoped the ?900,000 project will open up the area to more

:03:43.:03:46.

visitors and interpret and explain this unique landscape.

:03:47.:03:49.

But the Spurn visitor centre proposal has met

:03:50.:03:55.

with strong local opposition, concerns that it will have

:03:56.:03:58.

a detrimental impact on the local environment,

:03:59.:04:01.

suggestions that using existing buildings for the centre

:04:02.:04:04.

East Riding Council has already rejected an application

:04:05.:04:10.

by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, that was last summer.

:04:11.:04:13.

Councillors were concerned about flood risk to the proposed

:04:14.:04:15.

centre and also the visual impact it might have in an area renowned

:04:16.:04:20.

This afternoon councillors are considering a second application

:04:21.:04:27.

but many local people have criticised that too, claiming it's

:04:28.:04:30.

A councillor who was expelled from the Conservative Party

:04:31.:04:38.

after posting an offensive tweet following the death of MP

:04:39.:04:41.

Jo Cox says he has no intention of resigning.

:04:42.:04:43.

Dominic Peacock has written to the chief executive

:04:44.:04:46.

of East Riding Council saying that he has received overwhelming

:04:47.:04:49.

support from ward residents and has described his critics

:04:50.:04:52.

Last month a council committee said he should stand

:04:53.:04:57.

Hull City can make it to only their second major

:04:58.:05:03.

cup final if they beat Manchester United tonight.

:05:04.:05:06.

They'll face Southampton in the EFL Cup if they overcome a two-goal

:05:07.:05:09.

deficit from the first leg of the semifinal.

:05:10.:05:13.

City head coach Marco Silva admits it will be difficult.

:05:14.:05:16.

They scored the last goal, I think, in the last five minutes

:05:17.:05:19.

because if they come with 1-0 it is different for them, sure.

:05:20.:05:22.

It's a strong team, a fantastic coach.

:05:23.:05:25.

Sure we have problems but we will try to put

:05:26.:05:29.

A brand new lifeboat is on its way to Skegness after tests

:05:30.:05:35.

It's faster, more agile and can travel further to rescues

:05:36.:05:40.

than the 26-year-old vessel it's replacing.

:05:41.:05:42.

In the first of two special reports, Phillip Norton looks at how

:05:43.:05:46.

a ?1.5 million donation from a lifeboat family brought

:05:47.:05:50.

It has been a saviour on the seas around Skegness for more than 25

:05:51.:06:06.

years. I have rescued 195 people and the lives of 38 was saved because of

:06:07.:06:12.

this vessel. A brand-new lifeboat will arrive here on Saturday, thanks

:06:13.:06:19.

to a Skegness family. For almost 160 years descendants of the family

:06:20.:06:23.

served continuously with the lifeboat here. That continuous

:06:24.:06:29.

service ended in 1984 when one of the family retired. But when he died

:06:30.:06:35.

in 2011, he left money for the lifeboat and along with a donation

:06:36.:06:40.

from his cousin, April, the family has gifted ?1.5 million. It was a

:06:41.:06:45.

surprise, really. We were gathered in the crew room and April was in

:06:46.:06:49.

their and nobody knew what was going on. She announced there is a legacy

:06:50.:06:55.

being left to secure the future of funding for the station here in

:06:56.:07:00.

Skegness and introduced this new lifeboat. This is the purpose-built

:07:01.:07:05.

lifeboat manufacturing centre in Poole. Wet every year six brand-new

:07:06.:07:10.

shunning class lifeboats are born. The latest being the -- the new

:07:11.:07:15.

Skegness lifeboat which was constructed here. They are very

:07:16.:07:19.

fast, very manoeuvrable for the crew. Getting alongside a casualty,

:07:20.:07:25.

getting close to any precarious edges. It is welcome knowing that

:07:26.:07:30.

the brave volunteers in the background willing to get into one

:07:31.:07:34.

of these. Here she is emerging from the freezing fog, the new Skegness

:07:35.:07:41.

lifeboat. The family connection will help save lives for many years to

:07:42.:07:45.

come. Phillip Norton, the BC Look North,. You can see the second

:07:46.:07:50.

report from Philip tomorrow. Now a look at the weather

:07:51.:07:51.

forecast with Paul Hudson. The coldest winter day

:07:52.:07:54.

of the season so far. At least it is generally dry and

:07:55.:07:58.

there is a big change on the way. You can see on Saturday the wind

:07:59.:08:02.

coming from the south-west, that sets the scene for a much

:08:03.:08:04.

milder week next week. It is certainly not

:08:05.:08:09.

mild at the moment. Temperatures in Lincoln, for

:08:10.:08:11.

example, are still only minus one.. That cloud could be thick enough

:08:12.:08:15.

for one or two light snow flurries but essentially it is dry and just

:08:16.:08:20.

look at these top temperatures, one Celsius, that is 34 Fahrenheit,

:08:21.:08:23.

with a significant wind-chill if you add in the effect

:08:24.:08:27.

of the south-east breeze. As we head through this

:08:28.:08:30.

evening and overnight, we will get take a few cloud breaks

:08:31.:08:32.

coming from the south-east. They may well be later in the night,

:08:33.:08:35.

the cloud fills back in again, the risk of one or two light wintry

:08:36.:08:39.

showers and a widespread frost. Another grey day to come tomorrow,

:08:40.:08:42.

a few wet wintry at first. There might be some bright sunny

:08:43.:08:47.

intervals but essentially it looks like another cloudy one with a bit

:08:48.:08:50.

of rain towards the end of the day Eventually a little milder

:08:51.:08:54.

although still feeling cold, Friday night looks wet,

:08:55.:08:59.

Saturday morning, that overnight rain soon clearing then

:09:00.:09:06.

it is brighter. Sunday looks mostly dry, much milder

:09:07.:09:08.

as we had into next week. Thank you. That brings you up to

:09:09.:09:20.

date this lunchtime. We will have more view tonight at 6:30pm. Have a

:09:21.:09:23.

lovely afternoon. Goodbye. TV: He's not your father.
