Investigations are continuing into the cause of a fatal

:00:09.:00:10.

Emergency services were called to Derwent Street off

:00:11.:00:14.

Carholme Road in the early hours of yesterday morning.

:00:15.:00:17.

Two people managed to escape the building but the body

:00:18.:00:20.

A Lincolnshire council is calling on the government to offer extra

:00:21.:00:27.

money to GPs who come to work in rural areas, where it's hard

:00:28.:00:30.

In Gainsborough in particular, surgeries have been struggling

:00:31.:00:34.

to replace doctors who've left or retired.

:00:35.:00:36.

When it comes to treating illness, GPs are in the front line.

:00:37.:00:44.

But in some parts of Lincolnshire, that front line is starting

:00:45.:00:47.

In Gainsborough, there are only six full-time GPs,

:00:48.:00:53.

when there should be ten, making it difficult

:00:54.:00:55.

Last time I needed to see the doctor, I couldn't get

:00:56.:01:00.

in so I ended up in the minor injuries department instead.

:01:01.:01:02.

By the time it comes to your appointment,

:01:03.:01:04.

three or four weeks later, even longer sometimes,

:01:05.:01:07.

But district councillors have come up with a solution.

:01:08.:01:12.

They want the Government to offer extra payments to GPs

:01:13.:01:14.

who move to work here, a so-called "rural weighting".

:01:15.:01:19.

I know locally in Lincolnshire we offered a ?20,000 handshake

:01:20.:01:24.

to recruit trainees and, for the first time,

:01:25.:01:26.

Gainsborough's MP is backing the plan.

:01:27.:01:32.

We already have the concept of London weighting and I think such

:01:33.:01:35.

is the crisis in GP recruitment that we should have a rural

:01:36.:01:38.

weighting also for doctors to try to encourage them to come

:01:39.:01:41.

There are 360 GPs in Lincolnshire, but the county should have 420.

:01:42.:01:50.

A salaried GP earns between ?55,000 and ?84,000 a year.

:01:51.:01:56.

That's more than double Lincolnshire's average

:01:57.:01:57.

He says it'll take more than cash incentives alone

:01:58.:02:06.

If anything, Lincolnshire GPs on average tend to earn better

:02:07.:02:12.

So, I'm not convinced that money is the whole story here.

:02:13.:02:19.

In the next few weeks, the NHS is bringing in 25 doctors

:02:20.:02:24.

recruited from mainland Europe to fill vacanies

:02:25.:02:26.

But that alone won't solve the recruitment problem,

:02:27.:02:31.

so initiatives like "rural weighting" could end up

:02:32.:02:33.

A Conservative MP has described the extra money being offered

:02:34.:02:42.

to councils to pay for social care as "putting a plaster

:02:43.:02:44.

The government is allowing local authorities to raise council

:02:45.:02:50.

tax by an extra three per cent this year to pay for the increasing cost

:02:51.:02:54.

of caring for elderly and vulnerable people.

:02:55.:02:56.

But Cleethorpes MP Martin Vickers says he's worried it's not enough.

:02:57.:03:06.

People expect higher standards now, changes in society mean the elderly

:03:07.:03:16.

no longer stay with their families or extended families during the end

:03:17.:03:23.

in their dying years. It is a major issue and it is the biggest issue in

:03:24.:03:29.

cost terms that governments over the next decade or two will face.

:03:30.:03:31.

A boat built in Hull will soon be become a medical lifeline

:03:32.:03:34.

The twenty five thousand pound Wilberforce One

:03:35.:03:37.

will help take doctors, nurses and medical supplie,

:03:38.:03:39.

along the Volta River and work like a floating clinic.

:03:40.:03:43.

The boat's been paid for by Rotary Clubs

:03:44.:03:45.

Championship leaders Brighton and Hove Albion.

:03:46.:03:49.

In today's football, Hull City were knocked out

:03:50.:03:51.

Marco Silva made seven changes from the side that beat

:03:52.:03:55.

Manchester United on Thursday, but they were unable to overcome

:03:56.:03:58.

Evandro scored his first goal for the Tigers,

:03:59.:04:03.

but Hernandez missed two penalties in a minute as the home team

:04:04.:04:06.

And tomorrow night Lincoln City are in the draw for the fifth

:04:07.:04:14.

round of the competition, after beating Brighton

:04:15.:04:15.

Hello, the majority of the drizzle is making it out dashed way out. A

:04:16.:04:31.

couple of showers may pep up but low cloud and mist and murk and patchy

:04:32.:04:36.

fog. Overnight temperatures in towns and cities around three or 4 degrees

:04:37.:04:43.

but ruefully lower. A cloudy, uninspiring start the day but the

:04:44.:04:47.

fog will be patchy and will lift into low cloud. Some brightness in

:04:48.:04:50.

the afternoon and temperatures around seven Celsius. We are back

:04:51.:04:57.

from 6:25am. Have a good night. Bye-bye.

:04:58.:05:08.

Good evening. Very soggy down south today. A wash-out of the day for

:05:09.:05:15.

some of us. Scotland, northern parts of England, had sunshine. It's going

:05:16.:05:20.

to be cold. Already is. This is what is heading our way for the week

:05:21.:05:24.

ahead. We need our brollies out and it'll turn Wendy later in the week.

:05:25.:05:30.

The rain is clearing. I wouldn't say necessarily particularly drying out

:05:31.:05:33.

after this rain band boost towards the east, it'll stay damp but cloudy

:05:34.:05:38.

and murky in the north. Maybe freezing fog in places. It will be

:05:39.:05:43.

cold in the glands of Scotland. It could be down to -10 degrees, it's

:05:44.:05:48.

already about -5 or 6 degrees right now. Monday we've got another band

:05:49.:05:54.

of rain heading our way. Most of the West Country, Wales, spots into

:05:55.:05:59.

Northern Ireland. Most of southern England overcast with some rain.

:06:00.:06:01.

Looks like some
