Good evening and welcome to Look North.


A man has collapsed and died while playing in a football


James Moorfoot was playing for Langtoft AFC


The Yorkshire Ambulance Service said it was called to the incident


on Saturday afternoon, but attempts to revive him failed.


The East Riding Football Association has offered


its "sincere condolences" to Mr Moorfoot's family and friends.


A permanent memorial to Hull's lost fishermen has been unveiled


6,000 people from Hull lost their lives at sea


The Archbishop of York blessed the sculpture at St Andrew's Quay,


as part of the annual Lost Trawlermen's day service.


Our reporter Jill Archbold was there.


Barely space to stand as people gathered for a service special


significance. Today, together, we are making history, we are telling


our story. After years of campaigning to see one built, for


friends of those lost at sea placed friends of those lost at sea placed


their flowers at the permanent memorial. It's absolutely fantastic.


It's what I wanted. You know, it was one thing about trawlermen, they all


worked together, stuck together, worked together, and I would say,


99.9% of fishermen are old friends. Fishing heritage group Stand has


been fundraising for moral here for more than a decade. I find it


difficult talking, we have had a great loss and tragedy in the city


and occasions like this really brings it home to people. It has


been an occasion I will remember for ever. The 14 steel figures were


lifted into place just six days ago. Today's service was the first time


many had seen them. We just said, that is our family. It has blighted


a lot of our men and families. Our flowers are there. We will come


back, as the asked us an easy place to bring the family, we want the


grandchildren to know what happened. Very powerful, lot of and research,


and the images on the faces, it's just amazing, really. Blessed by the


Archbishop of York it is hoped this memorial creates a space for


remembrance on any day of the year. The Children's Commissioner


for England is meeting with North East Lincolnshire council


to discuss its children's services, following the death


of a four-year-old girl from Grimsby Poppy Widdison collapsed


at her home in June 2013. Last month, Poppy's mother,


Michala Pyke and ex-partner John Ritting were jailed


for a total of 26 years. The Commissioner said there


were "tragic failures to protect Poppy" and an investigation


is underway into services That case will be indicative


of the challenges and the situation in lots of areas, so we will be


looking at talking to local leaders about the decisions they make


and the challenges they face. We know, in some areas,


there are children who will get attention and support a lot earlier


on and for issues that aren't We want to understand why that is,


we want to understand whether it's about resources


or whether about the local context. There have been extra police patrols


in Lincolnshire this weekend, because of concerns that hare


coursers were planning Lincolnshire is often a target


for coursers from across the country because of the open fields


of its rural areas. This weekend, the police force set


up a dispersal order, which meant they could make suspects


leave the county. Police say they are using all


available laws to seize dogs, Grimsby's MP says a bill


she introduced to Parliament designed to protect workers' rights


is unlikely to become law. Ministers say British workers


won't lose out after Brexit when it comes to things like maternity


leave, paid holidays But Labour's Melanie Onn says


she's frustrated that her proposal I mean, I had amendments


to the Article 50 bill, that unfortunately were deemed to be


out of scope, but I'll bring them back ahead of the Repeal Bill


in a couple of years' time and try and get them in and try and make


sure that we do have workers' rights front and centre of the renegotiated


deal out of Europe. And if you missed today's


Sunday Politics programme, it's available on


the BBC iPlayer now. In today's Rugby League,


Hull FC were away at Wakefield. The Black and Whites


began their Super League In the Championship,


Hull Kingston Rovers beat Some rain to the north but it will


fragment as we go through the night, leaving a largely dry picture by


Dawn, but cloudy. We shouldn't see any frost fasting tomorrow morning


but it will be cloudy and cold and quite windy and factoring in this


easterly breeze taking the edge off of temperatures on exposed coasts


and fills it will feel better. But sunshine through the course of the


day with highs of six Celsius. Hopefully better weather than this


weekend. That is all for now. We are back at the later time of 11.20 this


evening. Goodbye for now. Good evening, dull, grey, cold,


miserable. And that's just me! The weather hasn't been great leader for


most of us, it will be chilly out there with this nagging easterly


breeze, wetter weather for Northern Ireland, by the end of the night


most of the dampness across parts of Eastern Scotland and North East


England, most of the high ground Luus will have faded away as well.


But not warm, another chilly night out there as you step by trusting


the morning. But tomorrow increasing amounts of sunshine which has to be


good news. But you do have to factor in the wind, more on that in a


moment. At the other end of the UK it will be a real struggle to
