Video footage recorded by Humberside Police's helicopter reveals the moment a "violent" attacker hurled tiles from a rooftop in a stand-off with officers.

Clint Clay, 24, of Frodingham Road, Scunthorpe, assaulted Jason Potts with a machete and a hammer before taking to the roof of a house on Alexandra Road in Scunthorpe on 6 July last year.

He denied assault and three other charges but admitted affray, and was sentenced to 13 years at Grimsby Crown Court on Monday.

Labour party 'could lose traditional northern strongholds'

Tim Iredale

Political editor, East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

There's a warning tonight that Labour could struggle to hold-on to its traditional strongholds in Northern Cities.

It follows the party's defeat in the Copeland by-election to the Conservatives. 

Pollsters say there's evidence that voters in cities like Hull are becoming increasingly disillusioned with Labour under Jeremy Corbyn's leadership - a charge denied by Mr Corbyn's supporters.

Contractors work extra hours to speed up Bridlington road works

Chris Arundel

BBC Radio Humberside

Engineers working on Bridge Street in Bridlington have been working longer hours this week to try to get roadworks finished sooner.

The street is being redesigned as part of Bridlington's multi-million pound regeneration programme - but it's been delayed after problems were found with Victorian drains.

Traders say it's badly affected their takings.

I understand you know, everybody's got a job and everybody's got to apply the rules etc, but it is having a devastating effect, especially on myself. We all want them to hurry up."

Claims that Cleethorpes plays 'second fiddle' to Grimsby

Lara King

North East Lincolnshire reporter

Cleethorpes residents will get the chance to ask questions to the Humberside Police and Crime Commissioner later. 

Keith Hunter will join Cleethorpes MP Martin Vickers to discuss a number of issues at a meeting in the resort tonight.

Mr Vickers says the local authority focuses too much on Grimsby:


People's anger will be released yet again because we are suffering at Cleethropes, there's absolutely no doubt about that. Cleethorpes, as far as they're [the council] concerned is of secondary importance. We play second fiddle all the time and it's just not good enough."

Martin VickersCleethorpes MP

It's a claim the council denies. They say they are as committed to Cleethorpes as the rest of the borough.
