Hello, and welcome to Monday's Look North.

:00:00.:00:00.

Jailed, the fake builders who cheated elderly

:00:00.:00:00.

Meanwhile, police hunt three men who attacked a pensioner

:00:07.:00:13.

and stole his life savings in a quiet County Durham village.

:00:14.:00:16.

How one in five children in the north-east is brought up

:00:17.:00:20.

in a home struggling to pay energy bills.

:00:21.:00:22.

Why plans to re-introduce a wild cat into the countryside

:00:23.:00:30.

In sport, we'll round-up all the weekend's football

:00:31.:00:36.

And we'll bring you winners from around the world,

:00:37.:00:40.

both with a pretty strong Cumbrian connection!

:00:41.:00:54.

A judge called them despicable, a gang of fake builders who targeted

:00:55.:00:57.

elderly people in our region, conning them out of

:00:58.:01:00.

Another, an 87-year-widow, was pushed to the ground

:01:01.:01:08.

In most cases, the gang took money without doing any work at all.

:01:09.:01:16.

Tonight, three of them are in prison.

:01:17.:01:18.

Well, our news correspondent Mark Denten is outside

:01:19.:01:21.

The judge here today called it a despicable case of criminal conduct,

:01:22.:01:40.

a gang of men who operated throughout our region targeting

:01:41.:01:44.

deliberately vulnerable people, especially pensioners, and then

:01:45.:01:49.

effectively robbing then, in some cases, of their life savings.

:01:50.:01:53.

Far from being ashamed, they had celebrated, taking photos of one of

:01:54.:01:59.

their victims to zest money, filming themselves celebrating.

:02:00.:02:03.

The judge said they had a warped sense of achievement. Tonight, three

:02:04.:02:04.

of them are locked up. Sunderland's suburbs,

for work that wasn't needed

:02:17.:02:17.

and rarely carried out. Often using this red van,

:02:18.:02:23.

they targeted pensioners including a former miner,

:02:24.:02:31.

75-year-old George Metcalfe who, over a period of weeks,

withdrew ?30,000 from his bank account,

but it was ten hours later. She had lain in this little

kitchen for ten hours screaming for help, and it was only

:02:52.:02:55.

by chance somebody overheard her She died three months

:02:56.:02:58.

later in hospital. Today, three members of the gang

:02:59.:03:01.

were sent to prison, Lee Davidson for five years,

:03:02.:03:10.

Philip Orton for three years and nine months,

:03:11.:03:20.

The judge said the three men could not be held

:03:21.:03:26.

criminally responsible for Mrs Barnett's death.

Another man, Levi Gales, 44, was charged with her

:03:54.:03:57.

Well, meanwhile, Durham Police are hunting three men who attacked

:03:58.:03:59.

a pensioner and stole his life savings over the weekend.

:04:00.:04:02.

It happened in the village of Coronation near Bishop Auckland.

:04:03.:04:04.

Alison Freeman joins us from there now.

:04:05.:04:06.

Police are calling this a horrific and terrifying attack on an elderly

:04:07.:04:21.

man in his own home. Police were called after 8:30pm on

:04:22.:04:28.

Saturday, the 77-year-old had gone to his coal shed when three men with

:04:29.:04:33.

face coverings tackled him. They hit him over the head with a coal

:04:34.:04:38.

shovel, dragged him inside, and searched his belongings.

:04:39.:04:45.

They left with his life savings. The man did need hospital treatment but

:04:46.:04:49.

fortunately his injuries were not serious.

:04:50.:04:53.

We spoke to one of the victims's relatives who lives in the same

:04:54.:04:55.

street and he described how quickly it all happened.

:04:56.:05:00.

He said he didn't know, he said they were over the wall

:05:01.:05:03.

The man is 77 years old with three young lads on top of him,

:05:04.:05:09.

They took him to hospital and he stayed overnight.

:05:10.:05:15.

I've lived here al lmy life and used to know every one in every house.

:05:16.:05:21.

Do we know how much money was stolen?

:05:22.:05:34.

Durham Police won't give the exact figure but say it is substantial,

:05:35.:05:40.

his life savings, and are warning people not to keep large sums of

:05:41.:05:45.

cash in their home. The officer in charge told us the impact it had had

:05:46.:05:47.

on the victim. He is alone in his own

:05:48.:05:49.

home, the one place you're supposed to feel safe

:05:50.:05:52.

and comfortable in and this type of He's too old to put up much

of a fight and there were So, it's an absolutely

:05:56.:06:00.

terrifying ordeal and something which no one

:06:01.:06:03.

should have to go through. I've spoken to him every day

:06:04.:06:05.

since this has taken place, several times, and he is just

:06:06.:06:08.

devastated at the moment. He is just really struggling

:06:09.:06:10.

to come to terms with it. He has a great family

:06:11.:06:13.

behind him, though. The police say they need as much

:06:14.:06:21.

information as possible to catch the three men responsible.

:06:22.:06:22.

Back to you. A woman's died following a crash

:06:23.:06:28.

involving a coach and a car It happened just off

:06:29.:06:31.

the northbound side of the A19 The woman was taken

to families struggling One in five children

:06:52.:06:53.

in the north-east is brought up in a home struggling

with fuel poverty. Kirsten O'Brien has been looking

at the problem for tonight's Jacqui and Michael Turnbull

to provide for your family, and it just gets to the stage

where you just can't do it. How aware do you think

:07:31.:07:33.

the kids are about it? Yes, my little girl definitely

does, my little boy I mean the first thing she says

:07:37.:07:41.

to me in a morning is, Mummy, can we have toast today or do

it's totally unacceptable. Fuel poverty is the inability to pay

people who were coming to the food bank weren't just in crisis

:08:58.:09:00.

we can give you ?49 for your electricity,

I cried and said, how do I pay it And they explained and they said,

no, it's a gift, you don't But in our region, the scheme just

operates in County Durham, That's because only one

:09:11.:09:13.

energy supplier, NPower, is prepared to fund the vouchers,

to become a successful trust. It's only been closed for 15 months,

:09:50.:09:52.

that the building could be. When we did community consultation,

:10:17.:10:22.

people overwhelmingly said that they wanted things

swimming lessons here. I'd love my daughter

:10:47.:10:48.

to have swimming lessons. It is not feasible to

:10:49.:10:50.

get to any other pool. For people with disabilities,

:10:51.:11:00.

it is a good pool. For young people with young

Look North, Elswick. An MP wants a plan to re-introduce

a wild cat into Northumberland to be scrapped, because he says local

:11:48.:11:50.

people don't want it to happen. Hexham's Guy Opperman says a survey

:11:51.:11:53.

he carried out suggests nine in ten people in the Kielder area

:11:54.:11:56.

are opposed to the lynx But those behind the plan insist it

does have local backing. Here's our political

:12:00.:12:03.

editor Richard Moss. For solitude, a winter's day

:12:04.:12:15.

in Kielder is ideal. How about shareing these forests

:12:16.:12:19.

with the Eurasian lynx? It has been extinct in Britain

:12:20.:12:22.

since the Middle Ages but a wildlife group wants to release at least ten

:12:23.:12:25.

of them here. If I was to encounter

:12:26.:12:28.

a lynx now, number one, What I'd be seeing is a cat 70

of another predator. The trust's stats suggest

:13:18.:13:19.

only a handful of lambs will be taken each year,

:13:20.:13:21.

and compensation is promised. A local MP says a survey he has done

:13:22.:13:25.

shows the lynx will not be welcome. I went to the 400 residents

:13:26.:13:29.

of the villages of the local area, and had a response from 96 houses,

:13:30.:13:32.

a 25% response is actually very good Out of 96, 93 were

unequivocally against. There are enthusiasts, Michael Brown

years back in Canada, and this past summer,

:14:25.:14:27.

I've seen one. Not this dangerous and wild

:14:28.:14:28.

creature, that would be the wolf. If you introduced wolves,

:14:29.:14:32.

I'd be more worried. Those behind the plans insist

:14:33.:14:34.

they are winning support well beyond the odd Canadian,

:14:35.:14:36.

especially among the businesses. I have seen the survey done by Guy

:14:37.:14:38.

and it is farcical, highly biased, the preamble is factually

:14:39.:14:44.

inaccurate and misleading. Guy is in danger of damaging local

:14:45.:14:48.

businesses and employment The lynx are a huge driver

:14:49.:14:50.

for ecotourism, almost every business we spoke to in Kielder

:14:51.:14:54.

is massively supportive Guy Opperman stands by his survey

:14:55.:14:56.

but the trust hopes to get a license After more than 1,000 years away,

there are still divisions over whether this a cat Northumberland

Look North, Kielder. Now, it was built in 1770 to produce

:15:12.:15:19.

flour for families in York. Now, 247 years later,

Yorkshire's only working windmill And the team of people

:15:23.:15:24.

who've restored the mill But they need more volunteers,

:15:25.:15:28.

as Phil Connell reports. It was once one of hundreds of mills

:15:29.:15:36.

in Yorkshire but today it is the only one left

:15:37.:15:39.

that is working, found in the middle of Windmill Rise,

:15:40.:15:42.

a residential street in York. Lots of orders this week,

:15:43.:15:44.

we will have to do some milling. For a small team of volunteers,

:15:45.:15:50.

the windmill has become Before they arrived,

:15:51.:15:52.

it was derelict. In 2012 it was restored

to its former glory thanks to ten There were times we thought

:16:02.:16:03.

we would never get that work done Yes, there were some real

:16:11.:16:21.

30 bags of flour a week. To secure its long-term future

:16:22.:16:24.

an appeal is being made A chance to learn skills that

:16:25.:16:27.

have been passed down We have done the hard work

:16:28.:16:30.

by getting the mill restored, but it is almost harder to keep it

:16:31.:16:41.

in a decent condition. It is one thing getting the money

:16:42.:16:44.

to do it in the first place but continuing the income is crucial

:16:45.:16:48.

and volunteers are key. We would love anybody who has

:16:49.:16:50.

the time and physical energy. It is quite a physical

:16:51.:16:53.

job, to get involved. And take over from us old ones

:16:54.:16:55.

who are beginning to see the end For anyone interested

:16:56.:16:58.

in volunteering, there are two open days at the mill this weekend,

a chance to learn something Newcastle back on top

:17:33.:17:35.

players, Sunderland defender Papy Djilobodji is facing

:17:36.:17:45.

a four-match ban, having today been charged with violent

:17:46.:17:47.

conduct for swiping out the referee had a good view, it was

:17:48.:18:03.

an aggressive shove, I still think he will be banned.

:18:04.:18:05.

He has already been sent off this season.

Victor Annatjie be has picked up a knee injury. Just back from another

injury. Opening that ligament, that will be

:18:19.:18:22.

if you weeks. And this one as well.

:18:23.:18:27.

A direct hit, not happy. Even before kick-off,

:18:28.:18:29.

the Black Cats were back at the foot of the table

:18:30.:18:31.

following Swansea's any great

:18:32.:18:33.

response at the Hawthorns. And there was some pretty awful

:18:34.:18:37.

defending for both goals. 11 players back here. Any set piece,

:18:38.:18:49.

you have to look to win the first context.

:18:50.:18:52.

Third, fourth, back in the net. What about this from the left back,

forcing a throw in. Good pressure, then you need to

:18:57.:19:00.

react but he is facing the wrong place, ball still in play. West Brom

:19:01.:19:06.

attacked the space left. A good ball into the box. They are unfortunate,

:19:07.:19:15.

2-0 after 36 minutes, a mountain to climb.

David Moyes was not impressed. We are doing everything

we can to eradicate it but it is a disease

:19:20.:19:23.

at the moment. I take responsibility

:19:24.:19:25.

for that, I pick the That is what we have to tackle

:19:26.:19:27.

at this moment in time. We have to hope that

:19:28.:19:31.

our turn for results Well, like Sunderland, Middlesbrough

:19:32.:19:33.

are in a bit of a rut right now, without a Premier League win

:19:34.:19:39.

since before Christmas. And the home defeat to West Ham saw

:19:40.:19:41.

head coach Aitor Karanka criticising fans as they urged the team

:19:42.:19:44.

to attack more in the later stages. Always dangerous to have a go

:19:45.:19:47.

at your own supporters, Steve? Newly promoted side, four points

:19:48.:19:59.

clear of the relegation sign -- so, but the fans are unhappy with their

:20:00.:20:04.

style of play. Andy Carroll getting a couple of

:20:05.:20:10.

goals. You can't give him a run and leave him unmarked. Middlesbrough

:20:11.:20:13.

got themselves back in the game, a good goal.

:20:14.:20:19.

They have success in wide areas. But not getting on the end of it.

:20:20.:20:23.

Apparently, we have heard this. And the Northern Echo reporting

:20:24.:20:27.

chairman Steve Gibson has turned down a ?50 million offer

:20:28.:20:29.

from a Chinese consortium The money he has put in, I think he

:20:30.:20:39.

is entitled to more than that, and with his emotional attachment.

:20:40.:20:49.

Patrick Bamford came on. But the manager wasn't happy after the game.

:20:50.:20:52.
