Goodbye: Five things we learned today

Caroline Brockelbank

BBC Radio Humberside

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

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

  1. There'll be over 100 new homes in the Fruit Market area of Hull
  2. A Hull hostel has closed despite it being very close to the cities year as City of Culture
  3. Injections which are being trialed in Hull could help people with severe headaches
  4. There could be an ice rink alongside Grimsby Town's new stadium
  5. And Goole museums have donated old photos of the area to brighten up the town's hospital.

'Bright' certainly can't be used to describe today's weather which turned out to be a bit dull and overcast. Thanks to our weather watcher for sending in this picture of the Humber Bridge from Barton-upon-Humber.

The Labour MP for Great Grimsby has won the chance to get a second hearing for a Parliamentary Bill aimed at protecting workers rights.

Rights for agency workers, the European Works Council, information and consultation of employees, health and safety, TUPE, the working time directive and the protection of young people at work. These are the broad areas that could disappear if the government opts to appeal the European Communities Act 1972."

Sport: Three years for new Grimsby Town stadium

Mike White

Sports Reporter BBC Radio Humberside

Grimsby Town say they could be in their proposed new stadium in the next three years. 

The club announced today that they've signed an agreement with Buckinghamshire based sports and leisure property developer Extreme Leisure to help them relocate to a new 14,000 seat venue at Peaks Parkway.

We're getting an indication from the developer that it could be three years. Obviously we've only just got the green light for Peaks Parkway so there's an awful lot to do."
