Company responds to criticism over sacked groundsmen

Kate Sweeting

Reporter, BBC Look North

The company which sacked two groundsmen from the KCOM stadium have responded to criticism over their decision.

Darrell Cook and Mark Harrison worked as groundsmen for almost 30 years
BBC

Darrell Cook and Mark Harrison worked as groundsmen for almost 30 years until they were told to leave.

In a statement SMC Management, their employer, said following an investigation both were dismissed for gross misconduct and a fundamental breach of the implied term of mutual trust and confidence.

We are confident that a fair and robust process was adopted and that any claim brought by either Mr Harrison or Mr Cook will be successfully defended.

SMC Management

Both Mr Cook and Mr Harrison have denied any wrongdoing and are crowdfunding in order to take legal action.

I know there's no name to be cleared, but people out there don't. When you're sacked for gross misconduct it's not good. Certainly there's none of that in our case and we want to put that fact right.

Tommy Lee Laverack Whitworth died in 2014 after he was violently shaken by his father, Liam Laverack, suffering catastrophic injuries.

The report by the Hull Safeguarding Children's Board reveals social workers knew about the incidents before the event which led to Tommy Lee's death but they stopped working with the family because they were satisfied with child's safety.

The chair of the board says the death of the baby could not have been foreseen and says the case has highlighted the need for agencies to improve early help sharing of information and pre-birth assessments.

Watch: Do students in Grimsby recognise the party leaders?

Matthew Bone

Video Journalist, BBC Look North

Young people in North East Lincolnshire have been told that their votes could have a major influence on the outcome of the general election on 8 June..

But figures show that only 43% of 18 to 24-year-olds went down to their polling station to cast their ballot at the last general election in 2015.

In a bid to turn this around, students at the University Centre in Grimsby have received a delegation from Westminster to encourage them to vote.

With that in mind, I spent the day in Grimsby to see if students there know their party leaders:

Social media dividing political opinion says academic

BBC Radio Humberside

A University of Hull academic says websites like Twitter and Facebook are increasingly dividing the country's political opinions.

social media dividing opinion
PA

The political parties are now increasingly targeting us via sites like Twitter and Facebook depending on who we are and what we like doing, in a similar way to how businesses advertise.

But Professor Alex Charles says political parties haven't yet properly harnessed the power of social media, and there is currently no evidence that any party has won an election because of what people see online.
