Jill Archbold

BBC Look North

The Crown Prosecution Serivce and Humberside Police have issued statements, after Joshua North, from North East Lincolnshire, was found not guilty of inciting racial hatred, after posting a social media comment about the travelling community.

Grimsby Combined Courts
BBC

Humberside Police says it take reports of hate crime seriously and where there is sufficient evidence it will charge someone and put them before the Courts.

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) also supported the view that there was sufficient evidence and a realistic prospect of conviction.

The role of the CPS is not to decide whether a person is guilty of a criminal offence but to make fair, independent and objective assessments about whether it is appropriate to present charges for a jury to consider and we respect their decision.”

Lesley Jayne Mooney, 57, of Brenton Avenue, pleaded guilty at an earlier court hearing to possession with intent to supply class A drugs and to handling stolen goods.

Humberside Police searched her home in March 2017 where they found her holding a black plastic parcel with a number of wraps of drugs inside.

Officers found over 2,000 items believed to have been stolen, including bags full of boxed watches, make-up, deodorants, chocolate and DVDs.

I am pleased that the courts have passed this sentence today which should serve as a warning to others that drug dealing will not be tolerated and we will work with the courts to take dealers off the streets."

Operation Wintergreen

The trust announced that from Monday it will launch Operation Wintergreen, meaning some routine surgery and appointments at Castle Hill hospital and Hull Royal Infirmary will be cancelled in order to free up resources for accident and emergency.

Hospital bosses says they're contacting people directly if they are affected by the changes.

Patients with long-term conditions who would be adversely affected by cancellations or postponed treatment, cancer surgery and urgent appointments will not be affected."

Cottingham's referendum focuses on village's future

Cottingham is to hold a referendum next month on the village's Neighbourhood Plan.

If residents vote yes, developers will have to consider the area's local plan.

It would mean building houses in keeping with the village, protecting things like trees and not spoiling the view for people living locally.

The referendum will take place on Thursday 15 February at six polling stations.

Here's the referendum question:

Do you want East Riding of Yorkshire Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan and Design Guide for Cottingham to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?"

'Loss of faith' over ambulance service - MP

Thames Ambulance Service, which provides non-emergency transport in Hull and Lincolnshire, is still failing to meet any of its key targets, according to new figures seen by the BBC.

Ambulance
BBC

The service has been given just three months to improve or it could face losing the Lincolnshire contract which is worth £25m.

The MP for Grimsby, Melanie Onn, is demanding that ambulance bosses discuss their performance with other local MPs:

The reality is that they have not been delivering on that contract. There's a serious loss of faith and really perhaps the call needs to be to the Clinical Commissioning Groups to say you need to find someone else."
