That's all from the BBC News at Six, so it's goodbye from me,

:00:00.:00:08.

Hello and welcome to Wednesday's Look North.

:00:09.:00:09.

A call for longer prison sentences for people found guilty

:00:10.:00:13.

The people who do these kinds of acts have no place

:00:14.:00:16.

in our community and it's really important we send that message out,

:00:17.:00:19.

The clamp-down on drivers with no vehicle tax.

:00:20.:00:22.

The DVLA launches a blitz to catch those evading

:00:23.:00:24.

Winter warmer - the free weekly meals for elderly

:00:25.:00:29.

and vulnerable people to stop them becoming undernourished.

:00:30.:00:39.

The weather might be relatively mild at the minute but we have still

:00:40.:00:46.

managed to find you some icy conditions.

:00:47.:00:58.

In sport, Middlesbrough announce their second signing

:00:59.:00:59.

Newcastle hope to join Boro in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

:01:00.:01:07.

Whatever happens Sunderland have missed out on a home tie

:01:08.:01:09.

with Bristol City after slumping to another defeat at

:01:10.:01:11.

They say their officers deal with unimaginable cruelty.

:01:12.:01:14.

Animals being scalded with boiling water, stabbed, shot and poisoned.

:01:15.:01:17.

Now the RSPCA says a new study reveals eight out of ten people

:01:18.:01:20.

in the North East want to see longer prison sentences for people guilty

:01:21.:01:23.

The current maximum sentence is just six months.

:01:24.:01:34.

The findings have been welcomed by one MP, who next month tables

:01:35.:01:37.

a private Members' Bill in Parliament calling

:01:38.:01:39.

We must warn you, you may find the content at the beginning of

:01:40.:01:43.

Filmed on a mobile phone, this footage sparked outrage.

:01:44.:01:50.

Too horrific to broadcast, it shows the Frankish brothers

:01:51.:01:54.

repeatedly throwing their dog down the stairs and stamping on it.

:01:55.:01:59.

The dog later died but, remarkably, the brothers avoided jail.

:02:00.:02:10.

This shocking case led the Redcar MP Anna Turley

:02:11.:02:12.

She wants longer prison sentences for those guilty of animal cruelty.

:02:13.:02:16.

I think it is about sending a message that this is abhorrent

:02:17.:02:19.

and society as a whole rejects this, and they say people who do these

:02:20.:02:22.

kinds of acts have no place in our community and it is really

:02:23.:02:25.

important that we send that message out, and that deterrent.

:02:26.:02:28.

The current maximum sentence in England for animal cruelty is six

:02:29.:02:31.

months in prison and a fine of up to ?20,000.

:02:32.:02:41.

Now a survey commissioned by the RSPCA shows eight out of ten

:02:42.:02:46.

people in the North East want to see the Government introduce longer

:02:47.:02:49.

prison sentences for the most serious animal cruelty offences.

:02:50.:02:51.

And 59% of those questioned wanted to see sentences in excess of two

:02:52.:02:54.

Last October, RSPCA officers discovered a small dog that had been

:02:55.:02:58.

buried alive at Kirkleathem woods near Redcar.

:02:59.:02:59.

It had a five-inch nail hammered through its head.

:03:00.:03:02.

While shocking, officers say such cruelty is not uncommon.

:03:03.:03:08.

I dealt with a horrible case where some young men

:03:09.:03:11.

were setting their dogs on badgers and deer and foxes,

:03:12.:03:17.

like wildlife in the local area, and they were filming it

:03:18.:03:20.

while they were doing it and I had to obviously review all of that

:03:21.:03:23.

footage and it is just unimaginable cruelty that those animals

:03:24.:03:26.

Every day the RSPCA says its officers deal with animals

:03:27.:03:35.

who have been stabbed, shot and poisoned.

:03:36.:03:39.

Now the charity says it's time those guilty of such horrendous

:03:40.:03:42.

cruelty were punished with longer prison sentences.

:03:43.:03:58.

A Hartlepool man who killed three members of the same family

:03:59.:04:02.

in the 1980s has lost a human rights challenge against his

:04:03.:04:05.

Arthur Hutchinson was jailed in 1984.

:04:06.:04:09.

He broke into the home of Basil and Avril Laitner in Sheffield hours

:04:10.:04:13.

after their daughter's wedding and murdered them

:04:14.:04:14.

He also raped a teenage girl at the scene.

:04:15.:04:19.

The European Court of Human Rights dismissed Hutchinson's claim

:04:20.:04:21.

that the punishment amounted to inhuman and degrading treatment.

:04:22.:04:28.

Three people who were convicted over the death of a Newcastle man

:04:29.:04:31.

with learning difficulties are to have their sentences reviewed

:04:32.:04:33.

James Wheatley was jailed for life in December last year

:04:34.:04:37.

But prosecutors argued that the sentences handed

:04:38.:04:40.

to Wheatley's girlfriend, her mother, and another man,

:04:41.:04:42.

Nicola Lawrence was jailed for four years, Julie Mills eight years

:04:43.:05:00.

and Barry Imray three years for their parts in Lee's murder.

:05:01.:05:02.

There'll be a hearing at the Court of Appeal in March.

:05:03.:05:05.

A desperate plea for new information has been made by the family

:05:06.:05:08.

of an 83-year-old man who was killed in a hit-and-run accident

:05:09.:05:11.

as he walked home from visiting his daughter's grave 25 years ago.

:05:12.:05:14.

Charles Trueman died in hospital from his injuries after being hit

:05:15.:05:16.

by a car on Station Road in his hometown of Hexham

:05:17.:05:19.

His Children say they've never got over the tragedy and hope this

:05:20.:05:23.

New Year will bring them the closure and answers they need.

:05:24.:05:27.

Demolition work's due to start this week on a row of houses

:05:28.:05:29.

on a North Tyneside estate after they were affected

:05:30.:05:32.

by subsidence thought to be caused by former mine works.

:05:33.:05:36.

Five houses in Bayfield, on West Allotment, are being knocked

:05:37.:05:39.

down after cracks started to show and the buildings shifted.

:05:40.:05:42.

Home owners affected have been given the market value for their homes

:05:43.:05:45.

by the Coal Authority and most people moved out by

:05:46.:05:47.

More houses are suffering from subsidence, although

:05:48.:05:51.

The authority says it's been working closely with those affected.

:05:52.:06:00.

More than 100 cars have been clamped on Tyneside over the past two days

:06:01.:06:05.

as the DVLA mounts a blitz on people who haven't paid their vehicle tax.

:06:06.:06:08.

And people who've failed to pay for the clamp to be removed

:06:09.:06:12.

within 24 hours have seen their cars removed from the street.

:06:13.:06:16.

If they're not reclaimed, they'll be sold or scrapped.

:06:17.:06:18.

Adrian Pitches has been out on patrol with the DVLA hit squad.

:06:19.:06:27.

This car is not where its owner left it.

:06:28.:06:29.

Now the car has been seized and the owner will have to pay

:06:30.:06:37.

Obviously, most people are disgruntled.

:06:38.:06:44.

A lot of people realise that they should have

:06:45.:06:48.

It isn't the first course of action, it's the very last course of action.

:06:49.:06:55.

They will have had these reminders, so the message is that it is very

:06:56.:06:59.

important that you keep DVLA up to date with your current

:07:00.:07:03.

address so they don't find themselves in this position.

:07:04.:07:08.

The DVLA enforcement vans are on our streets

:07:09.:07:10.

year-round but they've brought in reinforcements for

:07:11.:07:13.

The vans are equipped with automatic number plate recognition cameras.

:07:14.:07:20.

Attention! Attention!

:07:21.:07:24.

If a vehicle has not been taxed, the van driver is alerted

:07:25.:07:28.

Last year, more than 10,000 motorists in the North East

:07:29.:07:35.

were issued with penalties for nonpayment of vehicle tax.

:07:36.:07:39.

A further 1,700 vehicles were clamped or seized.

:07:40.:07:43.

The majority of vehicles that actually come into this pound,

:07:44.:07:47.

they are not collected by their keepers.

:07:48.:07:49.

So that's a good story for road safety because many of them

:07:50.:07:52.

But we dispose of them in three ways.

:07:53.:08:02.

If the vehicles are capable of going back on the road,

:08:03.:08:05.

Otherwise, they are dismantled and sold for parts or they're scrapped.

:08:06.:08:10.

So it's all good for the environment.

:08:11.:08:15.

There was a predictable spike in nonpayment of vehicle tax

:08:16.:08:19.

after paper tax discs were abolished two years ago.

:08:20.:08:22.

But the DVLA says the payment rate has now returned

:08:23.:08:24.

to the normal level and in 2017, 80% of people pay their car tax

:08:25.:08:30.

online rather than at the Post Office.

:08:31.:08:39.

Unemployment in the north east fell by 1,000 between September

:08:40.:08:41.

The fall takes the number of those without a job to 87,000,

:08:42.:08:48.

Meanwhile in Cumbria, 4,430 people claimed Jobseekers'

:08:49.:08:53.

Allowance in December, a very slight rise

:08:54.:08:55.

However, North Yorkshire saw a larger rise of about 240,

:08:56.:09:01.

to stand at 4,235 people claiming Jobseekers' Allowance.

:09:02.:09:07.

The North East still has the highest rate of unemployment in the country.

:09:08.:09:10.

A Government minister visiting Tyneside today says they're

:09:11.:09:12.

focussing on helping the region's young people into work.

:09:13.:09:18.

Of course we recognise we always have to do more,

:09:19.:09:20.

and so here in this region, particularly with young people,

:09:21.:09:23.

we've been working closely with schools, piloting having

:09:24.:09:26.

Job Centre Plus advisers, our work coaches actually

:09:27.:09:31.

going into schools so, before young people leave school,

:09:32.:09:34.

making sure, if people are unemployed in the early days

:09:35.:09:39.

when they leave school, they're getting all the support

:09:40.:09:41.

to get work experience placements, and we'll be working

:09:42.:09:44.

closely with businesses, particularly the Tees Valley

:09:45.:09:46.

for example, to encourage more businesses to get those places,

:09:47.:09:50.

what we call set to based work academies were businesses themselves

:09:51.:09:55.

are running training courses and showcasing,

:09:56.:09:58.

if you like, their industry to young people to make sure

:09:59.:10:00.

For Labour, Middlesbrough MP Andy McDonald says the Conservatives

:10:01.:10:04.

have given tax breaks to millionaires and slashed

:10:05.:10:07.

corporation tax while neglecting the steel industry and failing

:10:08.:10:11.

to invest in the jobs, skills and infrastructure

:10:12.:10:13.

He said Middlesbrough needed a government prepared to implement

:10:14.:10:19.

an industrial strategy and invest to grow key industries and create

:10:20.:10:22.

a high skill, high wage economy, something only Labour could deliver.

:10:23.:10:29.

Yorkshire Air Ambulance has unveiled its second

:10:30.:10:31.

The ?6 million aircraft will be based at RAF Topcliffe near Thirsk.

:10:32.:10:35.

The charity's other new helicopter came into operation in September

:10:36.:10:37.

last year and is based in West Yorkshire.

:10:38.:10:45.

You're watching Wednesday's Look North.

:10:46.:10:47.

Plenty still to come tonight including the latest

:10:48.:10:49.

We've also news of a royal visit to the region.

:10:50.:10:52.

Keeping warm and well nourished this winter -

:10:53.:10:55.

the scheme in Darlington to help elderly and vulnerable people.

:10:56.:11:03.

And join me out and about on the ice, albeit man-made ice, for your

:11:04.:11:12.

full regional forecast later. The demands facing the National

:11:13.:11:15.

Health Service over the winter months are rarely out

:11:16.:11:17.

of the headlines at the moment. But now a scheme launched

:11:18.:11:20.

in Darlington might just help Age UK and the local health trust

:11:21.:11:22.

are giving vulnerable older people a free weekly meal to try to keep

:11:23.:11:26.

them well and stop them Peter Harris has been to see

:11:27.:11:29.

the scheme in action It's a square meal but the nutrition

:11:30.:11:36.

served up here might just help the NHS as well as the older people

:11:37.:11:44.

who come for the weekly free lunch served up

:11:45.:11:47.

at Darlington Fire Station, as part of an effort to keep

:11:48.:11:49.

the elderly fed and well. By bringing people here,

:11:50.:11:58.

we are trying to get people to be more socially engaging

:11:59.:12:00.

and interacting as well as providing a nutritious meal and monitoring

:12:01.:12:03.

their weight and trying It's believed there are thousands

:12:04.:12:05.

in Darlington alone who are undernourished,

:12:06.:12:12.

and the health trust is trying to identify them to make sure

:12:13.:12:14.

they take advantage of this service. Now, what they're running

:12:15.:12:17.

here isn't directly connected Are you finished

:12:18.:12:19.

with your food, there? But as well as bringing

:12:20.:12:24.

people in here, giving them something to eat,

:12:25.:12:30.

making sure they get well fed, while they're here, they can also

:12:31.:12:33.

check on their weight and that can be referred back to their GP and it

:12:34.:12:36.

might make a contribution in keeping some older people out

:12:37.:12:39.

of the hospital wards. The main priority for everybody

:12:40.:12:41.

who works in health and social care is to keep people in their own homes

:12:42.:12:44.

with their own families If we can do that, it prevents some

:12:45.:12:47.

of the pressures on our NHS and particularly our A departments

:12:48.:12:54.

which are rather If you can just take yourself

:12:55.:12:56.

onto the scales for me. The weekly sessions also mean weight

:12:57.:13:01.

can be monitored week by week. Undernutrition is a big problem

:13:02.:13:05.

in the UK and it's often overlooked and it's a problem for our most

:13:06.:13:08.

vulnerable patients, so often people who are older,

:13:09.:13:10.

who potentially have got other illnesses happening,

:13:11.:13:15.

and it is often seen as growing old, you lose weight because you're

:13:16.:13:18.

getting older, and it Actually, if you are losing weight,

:13:19.:13:20.

that can have a big implication on your health and your

:13:21.:13:25.

quality of life. And, for the old folk, of course,

:13:26.:13:28.

clubs like this are a chance to get You must be about 15 stone

:13:29.:13:31.

and now after all that. Yeah, I put on a bit

:13:32.:13:46.

today, so it's good. A warning's been issued for people

:13:47.:13:58.

to only use mobile phone chargers issued with their devices

:13:59.:14:01.

after a house caught The mobile phone caught

:14:02.:14:03.

fire within 20 minutes of being put on to charge

:14:04.:14:08.

with an incompatible lead. The warning is being given by Tyne

:14:09.:14:12.

and Wear Fire Service The phone and charger were tested

:14:13.:14:14.

by Gateshed Council which found the phone caught fire

:14:15.:14:19.

after overheating and melted Fortunately no-one

:14:20.:14:22.

was hurt in the fire. Prince Andrew paid a visit

:14:23.:14:29.

to Sunderland this afternoon as it hosted a regional heat of The Duke

:14:30.:14:31.

of York's Pitch at The scheme founded by The Duke

:14:32.:14:34.

supports Entrepreneurs across the UK and helps develop their business

:14:35.:14:39.

ideas by putting them in contact with potential

:14:40.:14:42.

supporters and investors. The three winners from today

:14:43.:14:45.

will now compete to win the chance of pitching their idea to judges

:14:46.:14:48.

at St James's Palace. We want to raise awareness

:14:49.:14:53.

about entrepreneurs and start-up businesses around the UK

:14:54.:14:56.

so we will be conducting, we are conducting Pitch tours

:14:57.:15:01.

around the countryside, about 6-8 per year,

:15:02.:15:05.

and it's very important to the North East gets,

:15:06.:15:09.

as it were, its profile raised and that businesses

:15:10.:15:12.

from here are shown and showcased. A Cumbrian charity is hoping locally

:15:13.:15:19.

brewed beer can help raise enough Eden Mencap currently rents

:15:20.:15:22.

a building in Penrith but it can't make improvements to the facilities

:15:23.:15:29.

unless it owns So the group's taken

:15:30.:15:31.

to the brew house to try This is the start of a hoppy IPA,

:15:32.:15:36.

crafted and brewed by Eden Mencap. It is a beer that aims to be more

:15:37.:15:47.

than just refreshing. Vanya Yam is the name of our beer

:15:48.:15:50.

and in Cumbrian dialect, We're almost home because we're

:15:51.:15:53.

buying our own building, so it's the key link

:15:54.:15:59.

to having that home. So every time you buy our beer,

:16:00.:16:01.

you are contributing to the longevity of people

:16:02.:16:03.

with learning For 30 years, Eden Mencap has been

:16:04.:16:05.

helping people learn new skills, make friends

:16:06.:16:10.

and build independent lives. The charity specialises

:16:11.:16:12.

in empowering people Having a permanent home

:16:13.:16:15.

for its members will Having that building means that

:16:16.:16:19.

we've always got a home, we've always got something we can

:16:20.:16:25.

use, we've always got a permanent base that guys come

:16:26.:16:27.

to recognise where they are. It means we can establish

:16:28.:16:30.

lots more things there, we don't have to worry about moving

:16:31.:16:33.

in the next three years And we can start evolving projects

:16:34.:16:36.

that meet the community needs much more because we have our own home

:16:37.:16:40.

and we know we are always So far, a third of the ?200,000

:16:41.:16:43.

asking price has been raised. The idea of making more money

:16:44.:16:48.

from beer came from Mencap staff who have helped members

:16:49.:16:51.

get stuck in. We've been out a few times before

:16:52.:16:55.

Christmas and we've learnt about the process and it means

:16:56.:17:00.

when we've been back at the building we've been able to put some photos

:17:01.:17:03.

up and actually go through the whole process so the guys are learning

:17:04.:17:07.

the whole brewing process and that It means that it's a totally

:17:08.:17:12.

new activity for the guys as well As well as the learning, there's

:17:13.:17:20.

been plenty of bar room banter too. We're a small brewery and often

:17:21.:17:25.

times it's just me here on my own, so to have company is nice

:17:26.:17:29.

and they're so full of joy and enthusiasm

:17:30.:17:31.

for the project, it's been great. Vanya Yam will have its first

:17:32.:17:35.

official supping in March, when raising a glass will hopefully

:17:36.:17:41.

raise enough money to buy Now it is time for sport. You have

:17:42.:17:43.

breaking news. Let's start with Middlesbrough's

:17:44.:17:58.

second signing of the January transfer window and,

:17:59.:18:01.

looking at early postings on social Boro have tonight signed striker

:18:02.:18:03.

Patrick Bamford from Chelsea for an undisclosed fee

:18:04.:18:08.

on a 4.5-year deal. The 23-year-old returns to Teesside

:18:09.:18:10.

after impressing during a loan spell two seasons ago,

:18:11.:18:13.

when he scored 19 goals and helped Aitor Karanka's side reach

:18:14.:18:16.

the Championship play-Off final. Emilio Nsue has left Boro

:18:17.:18:24.

for Birmingham by the way. Newcastle can join Middlesbrough

:18:25.:18:28.

in the fourth round of the FA Cup with victory this evening

:18:29.:18:31.

in a third-round replay. Sunderland, though, have missed out

:18:32.:18:33.

on a home tie against Bristol City. The Black Cats crashed out

:18:34.:18:38.

of the competition last night after suffering a hugely

:18:39.:18:40.

disappointing 2-0 defeat at Burnley. Burnley and Sunderland know each

:18:41.:18:47.

other pretty well now. This was their third meeting

:18:48.:18:49.

in less than three weeks. Ex-Newcastle midfielder Joey Barton

:18:50.:18:52.

was back at Turf Moor on a night when the visitors' boss rested star

:18:53.:18:55.

striker Jermain Defoe. It was nearly all Burnley

:18:56.:18:58.

in the first half, as it had been during the 4-1 victory on New Year's

:18:59.:19:03.

Eve. Sunderland keeper Vito

:19:04.:19:05.

Mannone had to be alert But he was beaten on the stroke

:19:06.:19:07.

of half-time by this glancing In the second half, Sunderland

:19:08.:19:12.

tried to up their game - Seb Larsson sensing a half-chance

:19:13.:19:16.

:20:32.:20:34.

old players and it's not the case. Our team is one of the youngest,

:20:35.:20:37.

or in the middle in terms of average age, in the division

:20:38.:20:44.

so I like to sign young players to develop them, to improve them,

:20:45.:20:47.

and at the same time to sign So you need a player like Murphy,

in a couple of new faces before But the reappearance of owner

Mike Ashley at recent games has prompted the question -

:21:11.:21:15.

who has the final say? It's a cheeky question

:21:16.:21:19.

that the final say is simple to say so what I need is to be sure

:21:20.:21:22.

we have the list of players I would like to sign

:21:23.:21:26.

and after it is yes or no, it depends on a lot of things,

:21:27.:21:29.

but it is not a problem. The question now is we are working

:21:30.:21:32.

very hard, I am confident we will do well and we will sign what we need

:21:33.:21:37.

and hope fully before the end of the window you will ask me

:21:38.:21:41.

about the new signing or whatever. So the message is -

:21:42.:21:45.

watch this space. And if you're not going to the game,
