he hopes to prove the earnings

forecasts wrong.

Good afternoon.

0:00:030:00:05

The headlines from BBC Look North

this Thursday lunchtime.

0:00:050:00:08

There are calls for the government

to do more to encourage GPs to work

0:00:080:00:11

in Lincolnshire's countryside.

0:00:110:00:14

They are saying that they are

having to wait quite

0:00:140:00:17

a while to get an appointment.

0:00:170:00:19

In some instances up

to three to four weeks.

0:00:190:00:23

A pensioner, who dresses as a bee

to raise funds for charity in Hull,

0:00:230:00:26

is given the freedom of the city.

0:00:260:00:30

Oh, I shall treasure this,

really treasure it.

0:00:300:00:33

There are calls for the government

to bring forward cash incentives

0:00:440:00:47

to encourage GPs to come

to the Lincolnshire countryside.

0:00:470:00:52

Villagers who have seen

the closure of shops,

0:00:520:00:54

post offices and banks say their way

of life is already suffering.

0:00:540:00:58

And difficulty seeing their GPs

is adding to the pressure.

0:00:580:01:01

Here's our Rural Affairs

Correspondent, Linsey Smith.

0:01:010:01:03

Quaint, quiet, peaceful.

0:01:050:01:09

Life in the countryside may sound

idyllic but with a host

0:01:090:01:13

of services closing,

it's not always easy.

0:01:130:01:17

The latest challenge can be

getting a GP appointment.

0:01:170:01:21

This man recently

promised the answer.

0:01:210:01:24

Next year he will offer

a £20,000 handshake to tempt

0:01:240:01:28

practitioners to rural spots.

0:01:280:01:33

We will do that for 200

doctors every year and that

0:01:330:01:35

will make a real difference.

0:01:350:01:37

Councillor Sheila Bibb was a key

campaigner for Mr Hunt's handshake.

0:01:370:01:41

But says the scheme should happen

sooner for her constituents.

0:01:410:01:45

They are saying that they are

having to wait quite

0:01:450:01:48

a while to get an appointment.

0:01:480:01:50

In some instances up

to three to four weeks.

0:01:500:01:55

Now I know it is different depending

on where you go in West Lindsey.

0:01:550:01:59

Some surgeries don't have a major

problem but some of them do.

0:01:590:02:02

And this is why they do.

0:02:020:02:03

NHS England uses a safe figure

of one GP to 1,750 patients.

0:02:030:02:10

The average ratio in Lincolnshire

is one GP to 1,900 patients

0:02:100:02:16

and in some practices this

is as high as one to 2,400 patients.

0:02:160:02:22

In a statement the Department

of Health says...

0:02:220:02:24

Which, for this winter,

means no magic solution to the 40

0:02:430:02:46

GPs needed in Lincolnshire

or the waiting times.

0:02:460:02:48

Linsey Smith, BBC Look North.

0:02:480:02:49

A child has been hit by a car

in the Marfleet area

0:02:500:02:53

of Hull this morning.

0:02:530:02:54

The ambulance service attended

to treat the 13-year-old.

0:02:540:02:56

The extent of the

injuries is not known.

0:02:560:02:59

The collision is said to have

happened close to the junction

0:02:590:03:02

of Marfleet Lane and Preston Road.

0:03:020:03:03

Motorists can expect delays

in the area as police

0:03:030:03:05

continue investigations.

0:03:060:03:09

An East Yorkshire bio-fuel plant

has halted production

0:03:090:03:11

blaming government policy.

0:03:110:03:14

Vivergo which makes fuel from wheat

wants the government to increase

0:03:140:03:17

the amount of bioethanal that's

mixed with petrol.

0:03:170:03:20

The company says the uncertainty

over whether that will happen means

0:03:200:03:22

150 jobs are at risk.

0:03:220:03:31

What was seen the last few months is

the market fall again

0:03:310:03:35

What was seen the last few months is

the market fall again and it makes

0:03:350:03:35

more sense to bring the plant off,

do the maintenance work well we're

0:03:350:03:40

down and wait and see what happens

with Government policy and market

0:03:400:03:45

development beyond that point. There

is only song we can keep reducing

0:03:450:03:49

waiting for Government.

The

Department transport has yet to

0:03:490:03:54

respond.

0:03:540:03:55

Business leaders are demanding that

infrastructure money,

0:03:550:03:59

outlined in yesterday's budget,

reaches the north.

0:03:590:04:00

Transport routes are to benefit from

£1.7 billion worth of investment.

0:04:000:04:03

There are concerns it

won't go far enough.

0:04:030:04:09

Well, on these occasions as you know

the Chancellor says something one

0:04:090:04:11

day and his relevant secretary

of state says something the next

0:04:110:04:14

about how there will be more detail.

0:04:140:04:20

A 1.7 billion fund for transport

infrastructure is good but if that

0:04:200:04:24

jam is spread across the Midlands,

the North, South and the rest of UK,

0:04:240:04:28

that won't go awfully far.

0:04:280:04:31

A full size model of one of the most

important aeroplanes in the country

0:04:310:04:35

has found a new home

at the Yorkshire Air Museum.

0:04:350:04:38

The Gypsy Moth plane,

which was created by prisoners,

0:04:380:04:41

has been on display at Hull Paragon

Station.

0:04:410:04:44

The Ministry of Justice says

there were no suitable locations

0:04:440:04:47

within the city and they're

"delighted" - it's got a permanent

0:04:470:04:51

home alongside other Amy Johnson

exhibits at the museum.

0:04:510:04:57

A 95-year-old pensioner,

who dresses as a bee to raise

0:04:570:05:01

thousands of pounds for charity

in Hull, has been given

0:05:010:05:03

the freedom of the city today.

0:05:030:05:05

Jean Bishop, who is also

known as the Bee Lady,

0:05:050:05:08

has been fundraising for Age UK

in the city for more

0:05:080:05:11

than a quarter of a century.

0:05:110:05:13

Laura Foster reports

from today's celebrations.

0:05:130:05:17

She has raised more

than £100,000 for charity,

0:05:170:05:20

carried the Olympic torch,

met the Queen and won

0:05:200:05:22

a Pride of Britain award.

0:05:220:05:24

This morning Jean Bishop was dressed

up for today's ceremony

0:05:240:05:27

but she hadn't quite twigged

the significance of

0:05:270:05:29

what she was off to.

0:05:290:05:31

Are you excited?

0:05:310:05:33

Yes, when I get home

for a cup of tea.

0:05:330:05:36

The freedom of the city

is the highest accolade

0:05:360:05:38

a local council can give.

0:05:380:05:40

Previous winners include

Nelson Mandela, politician

0:05:400:05:42

John Prescott, Bishop Desmond Tutu

and the actor Tom Courtenay.

0:05:420:05:49

It doesn't give Jean any powers

to herd sheep or anything like that.

0:05:490:05:52

Hull City Council says if Jean wants

to do that they won't stop her.

0:05:520:05:56

Oh, this is lovely.

0:05:560:05:57

After a long-awaited cup of tea,

Jean told me that this award

0:05:570:06:01

is the icing on the cake.

0:06:010:06:04

I was choked.

0:06:040:06:06

I could not look at them

because I think tears

0:06:060:06:09

would fall down my face.

0:06:090:06:10

I was so grateful.

0:06:100:06:12

I never expected anybody

to know me like that.

0:06:120:06:18

I mean, you don't think of people

knowing you all over, do you?

0:06:180:06:21

Well, I don't.

0:06:210:06:23

Her family said they were

touched by the award.

0:06:230:06:26

So proud, you know.

0:06:260:06:28

It's so emotional.

0:06:280:06:30

Everybody was saying good

words about me mother.

0:06:300:06:32

It was really, really good.

0:06:320:06:35

You tend to take things for granted.

0:06:350:06:37

What she has actually achieved

is incredible and to be only

0:06:370:06:40

the second lady in 130 years

to receive this award, is well,

0:06:400:06:44

mind-boggling really.

0:06:440:06:48

You would think now she has turned

95 and received the highest honour

0:06:480:06:51

possible she might give

fund-raising a rest.

0:06:510:06:54

No, nothing stops me.

0:06:540:06:56

It's just one of those things.

0:06:560:07:01

I go collecting, I got a prize

and go collecting again.

0:07:010:07:04

It's just in my life.

0:07:040:07:05

Laura Foster, BBC Look North.

0:07:050:07:11

An exclusive screening

of the Doctor Who Christmas episode

0:07:110:07:14

and The Highway Rat will be taking

place in Hull next month.

0:07:140:07:17

The final appearance

of Peter Capaldi as the Doctor

0:07:170:07:20

will be shown on BBC One

on Christmas Day.

0:07:200:07:22

Those who can't wait can

catch a special viewing.

0:07:220:07:25

There's also an exclusive preview

of an animated version

0:07:250:07:28

of the classic book The Highway Rat.

0:07:280:07:31

The ballot for tickets

opened this morning at 9am

0:07:310:07:34

and runs for ten days.

0:07:350:07:36

Visit here for more information.

0:07:360:07:41

Now a look at the weather forecast

with Owain Wyn Evans.

0:07:440:07:46

Hello, hello.

0:07:460:07:47

It's been quite breezy

or blustery so far today across

0:07:470:07:50

East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.

0:07:500:07:52

Moving forward, we are hanging

onto the breezy conditions.

0:07:520:07:56

What we will see this afternoon

essentially is a mixture

0:07:560:07:58

of bright spells and showers.

0:07:580:08:01

Yes, plenty of sunny

spells, especially across

0:08:010:08:03

parts of Lincolnshire.

0:08:030:08:07

You can see a concentration

of showers, probably more likely

0:08:070:08:09

across part of East Yorkshire

but really where ever

0:08:090:08:11

we are we are at risk of seeing

a few showers this afternoon.

0:08:110:08:15

Now temperatures will get

to about ten to 12 Celsius,

0:08:150:08:17

still quite breezy.

0:08:170:08:18

It will feel cooler than this

if you are out and about, of course.

0:08:180:08:21

Temperature start to dip

as we head towards the end

0:08:210:08:24

of the day and overnight.

0:08:240:08:27

It will be dry overnight

as you can see behind me,

0:08:270:08:30

nothing much in the way of rain.

0:08:300:08:31

We will see some clear spells.

0:08:310:08:33

Temperatures going right down.

0:08:330:08:34

Down to about three

Celsius around town.

0:08:340:08:37

Outside of town,

probably below freezing.

0:08:370:08:38

That leads us into a cold

start to the day tomorrow

0:08:380:08:41

but it will look lovely.

0:08:410:08:42

We will be opening the windows,

opening the curtains,

0:08:420:08:44

seeing some lovely blue sky

and we will hang onto that

0:08:440:08:47

for the best part of the day.

0:08:470:08:50

Temperatures, as you can see down

a notch compared to today.

0:08:500:08:53

I think we will probably be

at six or seven Celsius.

0:08:530:08:56

That is because we are

in a colder air mass.

0:08:560:08:58

There is low-pressure up

here siphoning down the colder air

0:08:580:09:00

and pushing away that milder air

towards the continent.

0:09:000:09:03

Over the next few days we will hang

on to that colder air mass.

0:09:030:09:06

See you soon.

0:09:060:09:12

Do wrap up warm.

0:09:120:09:13

That's all from the lunchtime team.

0:09:130:09:15

Peter's here at 6.30.

0:09:150:09:18

Before then you could catch up with

the latest news on your BBC local

0:09:180:09:23

radio station. Do have a lovely

afternoon what ever you plan to do.

0:09:230:09:28

Goodbye.
