A new cycle route has opened in Goole. 

East Riding of Yorkshire Council says there's a growing network of cycle routes in the area after thousands of pounds worth of investment.

The new route is 1km long and passes through residential areas, Old Goole and leisure facilities.

This off-road footway/cycle link will help improve safety as well as promoting cycling as a cleaner and more sustainable alternative to short car trips."

Sport: Shearer says Hull City owners have failed staff and fans

BBC Sport

Former footballer and Match of the Day presenter Alan Shearer has criticised the owners of Hull City for not signing any new players.

Despite the club securing victory against Leicester over the weekend - Shearer said the lack of signings put pressure on the current players.

I think the owners have failed the club, they have failed the staff and failed the fans. Where has all that money gone that they got for getting into the Premier League. Those players that they signed last year didn't sign up for this to be left on their own."

Urgent care services to be reviewed in Hull

Louise Wheeler

BBC Local Live

Health bosses in Hull want to get your views on how best to deliver urgent care in the city.

A review is underway looking at opening hours, access to services and plans to create a 24-hour urgent care centre at Bransholme Health Centre.

Urgent care centres usually treat injuries or illnesses that need immediate care, but are not serious enough to require and Accident and Emergency visit.

Establishing a new Urgent Care Centre, open 24-hours a day, seven days a week, will be a huge asset to the community.

Designer Linda Barker in rooms plea for 2017 celebrations

Louise Wheeler

BBC Local Live

Designer and TV personality Linda Barker is in Hull today showing people how they can turn a spare bedroom into accommodation for City of Culture 2017.

Linda says using recycled furniture and reclaimed timber can transform a room.

So, it's Monday, I guess it's time to build a recycled Scandanavian bedroom in Pearson Park. Literally in Pearson Park. We want to encourage everyone in Hull to do up a spare room and welcome all the visitors next year.
