All remaining analogue TV signals have been permanently switched off in east Yorkshire and parts of North Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.

The digital switchover entered the second stage of the process on Wednesday and digital channels replaced the analogue channels.

All Freeview, BT Vision and Top Up TV viewers had to retune their equipment to regain missing channels.

Sky TV, Freesat and Virgin Media viewers will not need to retune.

The second stage of the switchover took place between 06:00 BST and mid-morning, depending on the relay transmitters used to send signals.

The first stage of the switchover took place on 3 August when BBC Two ceased broadcasting in analogue from the Belmont and Oliver's Mount transmitters.

The rest of the Yorkshire TV region will follow the same two stage process, carried out transmitter by transmitter, until 21 September.

Radio signals are not affected by the switchover.

The BBC is running the Switchover Helpscheme to help people to convert their TV to digital if they are aged 75 or over, are eligible disabled, have lived in a care home for six months or more, or are registered blind or partially sighted.

To find out more, call the Helpscheme on 0800 40 85 910.
