Concern for 'distinctive mural' on Hull's BHS building

BBC Radio Humberside

Local heritage campaigners are concerned about the future of a distinctive mural on Hull's British Home Stores (BHS) building.

Last week it was announced that the company is being wound down. 

The design - high up on the building on Jameson Street - shows three ships in recognition of the city's maritime heritage. 

Action for Hull say they don't know what protection there is for the mural.

If it is going to go for sale and someone else takes it up that's fine. But in the long term we do not know the fate of the building."

Your views: Where do you stand on fireworks?

BBC Look North

East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

Many people enjoy the bright lights and loud bangs. 

But later MP's will debate whether there should be tougher restrictions on back garden firework displays.

A petition with more than 100,000 signatures says the rules need to be changed because of the distress they cause to animals.   

BBC Look North is getting a big response to this on their Facebook page

Silent fireworks are the only option. Ban all fireworks that make a noise. My animals, like thousands of others, suffer for weeks around Bonfire night and New Years Eve.

Karen

The noise is completely unnecessary but I love the colours. There must be a solution? They should be restricted to public events only.

Christine

I definitely believe tougher restrictions are needed, however I don't believe all back garden fireworks should be banned completely.

Sue

Ban them from public sale....licensed displays only. People seem to let them off for the smallest occasion nowadays.

Historic water fountain restoration proposals submitted

Jonathan Willis

Local Live

Proposals to restore an historic water fountain in Pearson Park have been submitted to Hull City Council.

In the plans, the fountain bowl will be temporarily removed from the park and restored by Heritage Engineering Limited.

During the restoration project, the company will take castings from the structure which will be used for future reinstatement projects across the world, including one planned on the South Atlantic island of St Helena.

This is a great opportunity to help the national heritage movement and, if approved, I believe this project will be a fantastic addition to the larger restoration work of Pearson Park we are hoping for with the Heritage Lottery fund.

Crackdown on drink and drug driving by Humberside Police

BBC Radio Humberside

Humberside Police are launching their summer drink and drug driving campaign today.

According to government figures in 2014, 16% of all road deaths involved drivers over the legal drink drive limit.

Scientific reports suggest that drugs are a factor in a further 25% of fatal crashes.

It’s not okay to have ‘a couple’ of drinks before driving. Alcohol affects different people in different ways. A second drink can double your chance of a fatal collision.
