Anti fracking campaigners have written to North Yorkshire County Council to say they believe its decision to allow fracking in Kirby Misperton is unlawful and they may seek a judicial review

"I've seen a better job done with a knife and fork"

Carl Wheatley

BBC Radio Humberside

Have you noticed that grass on Hull's verges has been getting longer recently?

Councillor Terry Keal who represents the Sutton ward for Hull City Council will be raising the issue at a full council meeting next week, he says that the Council needs to do more to cut the grass and pick up litter:

Have you noticed that grass in Hull's verges has been getting longer recently?

The Council works hard to maintain the city's grass verges however due to a combination of reduced resources, operational changes and the growing conditions we've had to make some necessary changes. "We are undertaking measures to make improvements as soon as possible, and we are in the process of sourcing additional grass cutting equipment with the aim to increase our workforce temporarily and improve the image of the city."

It was always probably on the cards... I've known him since my Scunny days, so a good 17-18 years I've known Darren and I trust him. He's a Hull based lad, he lives close to Ferriby as well... He's more or less on board."
