Five things we learned today in East Yorkshire & Humber

Kimberley Metcalfe

BBC Local Live, Hull and East Yorkshire

Thank you for joining me today, I'll be back tomorrow morning from 0800 on the live feed for East Yorkshire and the Humber.

To round off the day, lets have a look at five things we didn't know when we woke up this morning...

  1. There will be 'no delay in leaving the European Union and no second referendum' the government said
  2. Back in 1873 it would only cost you £8,000 to build a pier, what a bargain! 
  3. It's not the end of summer yet, warmer weather will make a return through the week 
  4. We've finally learned how to embrace the rain as over 70,000 people attend the Freedom Festival in Hull
  5. You've done me proud with some fantastic photos for the live feed today, keep snapping!

Town council insist country park remains in the community

Gill Sennett

BBC Local Live, East Yorkshire and Humber

Town councillors in Hessle say the Humber Bridge Country Park should be kept as a community asset and not sold off. 

It's after the Humber Bridge Board wrote to East Riding Council saying they were interested in buying the land if it came up for sale. 

The East Riding Council say that "at no point in time have they suggested or discussed in any form the sale of the Humber Bridge Country Park to any party and it is not their intention to do so". 

Last month Hessle Town Council rejected plans for a new tourist centre, a glass elevator for the North tower, and a viewing platform on the bridge.

Kimberley Metcalfe

BBC Local Live, Hull and East Yorkshire

The organisers of the Freedom Festival say over 72,000 people came to the event in Hull over the weekend.

It's less than last year's attendance, it's thought because of Saturday's heavy rain.
