In the headlines tonight: No school today.

:00:00.:00:08.

Teachers strike in protest at the running of their academy.

:00:09.:00:11.

This upmarket arcade company says it'll pull out,

:00:12.:00:15.

if new shops are built on the edge of town.

:00:16.:00:18.

It's Ant and Dec OBE, but who was first in line

:00:19.:00:21.

And Dome Sweet Dome - work at Spanish City is well

:00:22.:00:28.

underway on the long-awaited redevelopment.

:00:29.:00:31.

In sport, Boro and Newcastle hope to avoid a big cup upset -

:00:32.:00:34.

something the mighty Glasgow Rangers couldn't manage at

:00:35.:00:36.

To come here and get beat, that has got to be the biggest shock ever in

Scottish football. Teachers at a troubled school

in west Cumbria have It's in protest at the

actions of its sponsor, Staff at the Whitehaven Academy say

:01:01.:01:04.

the Trust has led the school into special measures,

:01:05.:01:10.

and is failing the pupils there. But Bright Tribe insists

:01:11.:01:12.

it IS improving standards. Later we'll be examining the wider

:01:13.:01:15.

implications of the dispute. But first, Mark McAlindon

:01:16.:01:18.

has this report. This is the second day

:01:19.:01:23.

of strike action this week involving three trade unions,

:01:24.:01:26.

teachers here fulfilling a threat first made before Christmas to use

:01:27.:01:30.

industrial action to force changes. I think it's a massive decision,

:01:31.:01:36.

particularly for ATL, this is the first strike

:01:37.:01:43.

we've ever had locally, we've only had two strikes

:01:44.:01:45.

in 125 years. We've had local ones in other areas

:01:46.:01:47.

but this is the first in Cumbria. Staff say the Bright Tribe Trust

:01:48.:01:50.

has broken its promises to improve the school,

:01:51.:01:53.

has left buildings to decay and allowed it to drift

:01:54.:01:57.

into special measures. The teachers here don't

:01:58.:02:05.

want to go on strike. We recognise that it can be

:02:06.:02:08.

inconvenient for some people, but we do need to see progress here,

:02:09.:02:10.

because actually, one day, if we see substantial

:02:11.:02:13.

improvement in the school, The Bright Tribe Trust told us

:02:14.:02:15.

they didn't have anyone available for interview but did

:02:16.:02:22.

provide a statement. It said Bright Tribe is fully

:02:23.:02:26.

committed to working with all staff and trade unions in order to improve

:02:27.:02:28.

standards and provide a good level of education for students

:02:29.:02:32.

at the Whitehaven Academy. Some parents too have joined

:02:33.:02:34.

in, trying to increase We've collected over

:02:35.:02:36.

1,000 signatures from for the teachers and what they're

:02:37.:02:40.

doing, they actually have taken, cos a lot of the parents feel very

:02:41.:02:47.

strongly about what's been happening the school

:02:48.:02:50.

and we want to show our Well, I'm joined now

:02:51.:02:52.

by our political And you've uncovered

:02:53.:03:01.

new evidence of the strength of local feeling about Whitehaven

:03:02.:03:05.

Academy. I have obtained a copy of a scathing

:03:06.:03:15.

letter from the MP to the Bright Tribe Trust. He stood down as MP on

:03:16.:03:21.

Monday but this is a letter he sent last month and in it, he describes

:03:22.:03:27.

Bright Tribe Trust as distrusted and heated in the local community. He

:03:28.:03:34.

says it is in the best interests to pull out of the school. Strong

:03:35.:03:40.

words. Who will make the final decision? It is a central Government

:03:41.:03:43.

and not the local council that has the power to intervene in feeling

:03:44.:03:48.

academies but the processors and straightforward. I've been finding

:03:49.:03:51.

out more about how academies work. Introduced by Labour, academies have

:03:52.:03:56.

proliferated under the Conservatives and there are no more than 300

:03:57.:04:01.

across the region, more than half our secondaries, one in eight

:04:02.:04:06.

primaries. Academies are independent of council control, but taxpayer

:04:07.:04:09.

funded. They are run by education charity is known as Academy trusts.

:04:10.:04:14.

Supporters say their freedom in areas like the curriculum improves

:04:15.:04:19.

results for pupils, but that's disputed by critics, who say bright

:04:20.:04:28.

-- Bright Tribe Trust is just a number of trusts facing problems.

:04:29.:04:34.

The school also has buildings in Stockport, Manchester Essex and

:04:35.:04:39.

Suffolk. There is the power to put any different sponsor instead but

:04:40.:04:44.

Bright Tribe Trust have already lined up to take over other schools

:04:45.:04:47.

in Northumberland and Sunderland saw such a move would be embarrassing.

:04:48.:04:50.

There's also a shortage of Academy sponsors across the regions of

:04:51.:04:53.

finding an alternative backer at Whitehaven could proved difficult.

:04:54.:05:00.

And the Government said tonight it is working with Bright Tribe Trust

:05:01.:05:02.

to address underperformance at Whitehaven Academy. It added that if

:05:03.:05:06.

it wasn't satisfied with the improvements, further action will be

:05:07.:05:10.

taken. And there is another school in trouble in our region.

:05:11.:05:16.

Newcastle's largest school, Heaton Manor, with more than a hundred

:05:17.:05:22.

pupils, and Whitehaven Academy has been placed in special measures and

:05:23.:05:28.

judged inadequate by Ofsted in terms of leading, teaching and behaviour.

:05:29.:05:33.

The trust insists improvements under way but because it is a local

:05:34.:05:36.

authority school under Government rules, they say it faces being

:05:37.:05:40.

forced to become an academy to raise standards but as the Whitehaven

:05:41.:05:45.

experience shows, becoming an academy doesn't always mean an end

:05:46.:05:47.

to your troubles. It's created 500 jobs and invested

:05:48.:05:53.

?35 million in Morpeth. But the property company

:05:54.:06:00.

which developed the Sanderson Arcade shopping centre could sell up

:06:01.:06:02.

and leave the town. It objects to a planned

:06:03.:06:06.

new retail park on the site of the old County Hall,

:06:07.:06:09.

claiming it'll take shoppers away Our business correspondent

:06:10.:06:11.

Ian Reeve reports. Morpeth's Sanderson Arcade,

:06:12.:06:17.

a shopping centre that is created 500 jobs since opening in 2006,

:06:18.:06:22.

but its property company owner to be -- could be on the verge

:06:23.:06:25.

of selling up, dismayed on the edge of town,

:06:26.:06:28.

and Hannah, running a baking business in the arcade,

:06:29.:06:32.

doesn't like the idea either. If it does go ahead,

:06:33.:06:34.

it's going to ruin some of the hustle and bustle of Morpeth,

:06:35.:06:37.

it's got quite a nice reputation as a market town,

:06:38.:06:39.

it would be a shame to see it go. The retail park would be

here on the current site of Northumberland County Council's

:06:50.:06:57.

County Hall after it sells the land. A new school would be built

:06:58.:07:01.

as well as 200 homes. Joan and Ken have many

:07:02.:07:03.

concerns over the scheme, but claim the county

:07:04.:07:08.

council won't discuss them. They have refused repeatedly

:07:09.:07:10.

to come and talk to us. We have a forum where we're supposed

:07:11.:07:13.

to be talking to the county council We have specifically invited them

:07:14.:07:16.

again just before Christmas The town has got a fantastic

:07:17.:07:20.

functioning town centre and for the last 30 years,

:07:21.:07:25.

up and down the country, towns have been really hit hard

:07:26.:07:30.

by out-of-town retailing and we just feel that this is a wrong

:07:31.:07:33.

proposal for Morpeth. Monday is the last day for people

:07:34.:07:38.

to have their say on the scheme and the county council said it can't

:07:39.:07:41.

say anything at the planning A spokesman did however add that

:07:42.:07:44.

in the interests of impartiality, I should stay that Monday

:07:45.:07:50.

is the last day for public consultation, rather

:07:51.:07:53.

than the last day for objections. In case people want to make

:07:54.:07:57.

supportive comments. Well, currently, 1,065

:07:58.:07:59.

people have objected. The new Ukip leader Paul Nuttall

:08:00.:08:05.

was in West Cumbria to support his party's candidate in next month's

:08:06.:08:17.

Copeland by-election. Mr Nuttall, who's a North West MEP,

:08:18.:08:22.

is himself standing in the Stoke by-election, but he denied that

Copeland was a lower As part of the first

test of my leadership. We are campaigning very

:08:28.:08:37.

hard in the constituency and we are confident that we'll put

:08:38.:08:41.

over a good result and will improve The Government's new industrial

:08:42.:08:44.

strategy is promising investment for our region,

:08:45.:08:48.

with ?13 million going to Cumbria, 22 million to the Tees Valley

:08:49.:08:55.

and just under 50 million But will any of the benefits be felt

:08:56.:08:58.

in other parts of the area, which are struggling to cope

with the loss of traditional, David Macmillan has been

:09:12.:09:13.

there are signs that it was prosperous once,

but not so prosperous now. So can the Government's industrial

strategy really have an impact There's a lot of diverse people

:09:23.:09:25.

around here with good ideas, We want to see Loftus pickup

because it's a good place with a lot of good people,

hard-working people, but it's like everybody is down,

:09:42.:09:43.

worried about jobs. Hundreds of jobs have been lost

:09:44.:09:45.

here at Boulby in recent years, but the pot ash mine remains

a big employer. The boss here believes

:09:49.:09:51.

the industrial strategy can help them move on,

:09:52.:09:52.

with a local focus on technology. East Cleveland's got

:09:53.:09:59.

a long history of strong, industrial support of the country

:10:00.:10:05.

and with the right funding and the right focus,

:10:06.:10:07.

we can continue to build When the steelworks closed in nearby

:10:42.:10:43.

to do to convince some here that it does enough to make

a real difference. And there's more on that

and all the week's political That's this Sunday morning,

:10:54.:10:56.

here on BBC One, at 11 o'clock. Just two days after the National

Whitley Bay's Spanish City has hit hard times, and plans to revive it

:12:07.:12:12.

have fallen by the wayside. Now, though, work's begun

:12:13.:12:17.

to restore its famous dome and it's hoped this will bring visitors back

:12:18.:12:20.

to one of our great coastal resorts. These were the days,

:12:21.:12:23.

long before the holiday crowds disappeared, of course,

:12:24.:12:32.

and Tyneside's Spanish Now though the builders

:12:33.:12:33.

are in and the revival starts here. We've taken out the intermediate

supporting steelwork and intermediate flooring

:12:42.:12:46.

and the building you see now is what it was originally

:12:47.:12:48.

constructed to be like in 1910 Is it quite intricate in terms

:12:49.:12:51.

of what you've got to do to restore It is, it's a listed building,

:12:52.:13:01.

it's very complicated, it needs a lot of time spent

:13:02.:13:04.

in the planning stage to get everything right

because there's a number of legal You could get married

a chance to see the work under way. It's really impressive, it's good

to see back in this condition. We've been watching what they've

:13:24.:13:25.

been doing, willing them We want to use this,

:13:26.:13:27.

it's a great idea. You do get a sense of the faded

:13:28.:13:34.

glory on this building site. The heyday of seaside towns

:13:35.:13:37.

like Whitley Bay are long gone, but this project is part of not just

:13:38.:13:41.

restoring this building, but making the whole of this

coastline more attractive in the future, which many people

feel is long overdue. His grandma said to me,

with my mum and my grandma and it was a fantastic day,

and you go there now and there's nothing,

:14:01.:14:02.

so I know she will be pleased. The building team as well know this

is a special kind of job. I used to come down here as a child

and to be standing here working Down the years refurbishment

after the clubs agreed a deal that It was a major saviour

:15:18.:15:22.

in our run last season. I think his contribution in terms

:15:23.:15:27.

of assists and goals was massive. When it came to defending,

:15:28.:15:32.

he got better with me and listened to what we told him

:15:33.:15:36.

about whether the weaker side of his game was and he took that

:15:37.:15:40.

on board and made stronger so we got a very good player with great

:15:41.:15:44.

energy and I look forward Middlesbrough and Newcastle

:15:45.:15:49.

are our only teams left in the FA Cup and both will be hoping not

the same importance, because I know how important this

:16:19.:16:21.

trophy is in this country and for every single club

:16:22.:16:26.

here and I will try to win the game. We are better than them

:16:27.:16:31.

and we can win the game, but if we go to the pitch thinking

:16:32.:16:34.

we are facing a team which is down the table in the league,

:16:35.:16:42.

we're making a big mistake. Newcastle United are no strangers

:16:43.:16:44.

to FA Cup upsets and they haven't not gone beyond the fourth

:16:45.:16:47.

round of the competition since the 2005-06 season

:16:48.:16:49.

in which manager Rafa Benitez won He's keen to progress

:16:50.:16:52.

with careful squad rotation and without jeopardising

:16:53.:16:55.

the Magpies' promotion campaign. Rafa Benitez still hopes

:16:56.:17:01.

to strengthen his squad well before But he again wouldn't be drawn

:17:02.:17:04.

on possible transfer targets, including ex-Magpie Andros Townsend,

:17:05.:17:09.

who won't be joining any club on loan according

:17:10.:17:12.

to the Crystal Palace boss Sam They like him but at the moment, no

:17:13.:17:26.

news. We're happy with the squad but at the same time, we have to try to

:17:27.:17:30.

find something that can give us balance and improve the team if

:17:31.:17:31.

possible. Regarding tomorrow's

:17:32.:17:31.

League One hosts Oxford, who knocked out Championship

strugglers Rotherham in the third round, Benitez,

:17:34.:17:36.

who could welcome back striker Aleksander Mitrovic from injury,

:17:37.:17:38.

is understandably wary. A team like this in the middle of

:17:39.:17:46.

the table, for them, it is a massive game to play against Newcastle

:17:47.:17:49.

United. The way they will approach the game, I'm quite worried about

:17:50.:17:53.

that, but at the same time I have confidence in my team and we can

:17:54.:17:56.

win, but I expect a very tough game. In League Two Carlisle

are still looking for their first win of the new year when they face

that feeling away, We're trying to get out of it

:18:41.:18:42.

and we have to start again on Saturday and try and get

the points as we did last Saturday. It was the classic David

years and I broke my ankle. I was lying in the hospital

and it was just one bad day. I kept asking the score

and the nurse came in me it was 1-0 for Rangers,

:19:56.:20:00.

and And she said no, it's not,

weekend. Things are set to change. It is going to be less cold. It's by

:25:12.:25:15.

no means a mild weekend but less colder than it has been. They will

:25:16.:25:19.

be outbreaks of rain at a time, starting through this evening and

:25:20.:25:22.

then there will be some sunny spells to be had as well, mostly Saturday

:25:23.:25:26.

afternoon and Sunday morning. This is the map tonight. We start off

:25:27.:25:31.

with a lot of cloud, some mist and murk Andy weather front will bring

:25:32.:25:33.

outbreaks of rain through the night and over the hills and higher

:25:34.:25:36.

ground, we could see a touch of sleet and snow. An early frost by

:25:37.:25:45.

5am and dentures will be down to one or two Celsius. For Saturday, --

:25:46.:25:51.

temperatures will be down. For Saturday, cold and heavy rain but

:25:52.:25:56.

through the afternoon it will start to dry up in places but a few

:25:57.:26:02.

showers will be left behind. Brightness into east and Cumbria by

:26:03.:26:06.

the afternoon but where we get the showers, it could be following as

:26:07.:26:10.

sleet over the tops of the Pennines, temperatures across the northeast

:26:11.:26:13.

around five or six Celsius so it will still feel cold but much less

:26:14.:26:18.

cold than it has been today. As we head through Saturday night and into

:26:19.:26:22.

Sunday, we'll have a frost once again. A few showers here and there

:26:23.:26:27.

but by and large it's a dry night to come with dentures dropping down to

:26:28.:26:36.

one or two Celsius -- temperatures. This weather front will bring

:26:37.:26:38.

outbreaks of rain on Sunday. There is uncertainty as to how far north

:26:39.:26:43.

as weather front is going to move and if it moves across as it will

:26:44.:26:49.

bring rain. Our current thinking on Sunday, it starts off dry and

:26:50.:26:53.

bright. Some lovely spells of sunshine through the morning but by

:26:54.:26:57.

Sunday afternoon we think the cloud will move in and there will be

:26:58.:27:04.

outbreaks of rain, temperatures at a high of five or six Celsius but

:27:05.:27:08.

under the cloud and rain, part of Cumbria could get up to seven

:27:09.:27:13.

Celsius. We will keep you updated over the next few days about exactly

:27:14.:27:19.

how far that rain is going to come. As we head into the start of next

:27:20.:27:24.

week, we continue to move into the milder air and it will be quite

:27:25.:27:27.

unsettled so expect some cloud and rain at times and temperatures will

:27:28.:27:29.

get up to 11 Celsius. Have a great weekend. We'll see you

:27:30.:27:39.

on Monday.
