Landlord who 'put money ahead of the lives of his tenants' jailed

Carla George

BBC Local Live, Lincolnshire

A 'penny pinching' landlord has been jailed for five months after failing to equip his properties with adequate fire safety.

Around 20 people escaped a fire at the property on Bursar Street in Cleethorpes after a fire started on the ground floor - but no fire alarm sounded in August 2014.

Peter Kelson QC said the Ken Newsham was ‘more concerned with his own wealth than the welfare of his tenants’ and said it was ‘good fortune that no-one died’

Landlord Ken Newsham today pleaded guilty to four counts of not providing an adequate fire assessment, working fire alarms, or sufficient fire doors.

He was also ordered to pay £100,000 in costs.

Tourism figures for Hull continue to rise

Jonathan Willis

Local Live

Latest figures show that visitors to Hull have continued to increase over the last four years, supporting around 5,915 jobs in 2015, up 12% since 2012. 

The local visitor economy is now worth an estimated £274 million to the city.

The recent positive press we’ve had from national and international tourism bodies and travel bloggers are helping to change old perceptions of the city and as 2017 nears, I am very confident this will continue into the coming years, ensuring Hull is firmly on the map as a world-class visitor destination.

Over 300 cars targetted by thieves in July

Jonathan Willis

Local Live

307 Cars were targetted by thieves across East Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire in July, that's according to Humberside Police.

They say that the number of thefts from cars is partly down to people forgetting to wind windows up after a journey.

Vehicle security is as good as it has ever been however vehicles being left unlocked for thieves to search at their leisure or high value property being left on display is too tempting for opportunist offenders.

Hospice faces financial pressure over waste charges

BBC Radio Humberside

A hospice which is based in Hull says council cuts could impact on the core service it provides. 

Dove House helps people with life limiting illnesses but it fears more financial pressure as Hull City Council plans to stop charities using its Household and Waste Recycling Centres for free. 

Hull City Council says the authority faces significant challenges to maintain services as it faces major cuts in Government funding.  

Chris Sadler at Dove House say they already pay a thousand pounds per week for private collection and believe they will now have to pay more:
