Tim Iredale

Political editor, East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

The EU referendum could face a legal challenge after the deadline for voter registration was extended.

Arron Banks, funder of the Leave.EU campaign, is considering seeking a judicial review.

Mr Banks said changing the law during a campaign was unprecedented, unconstitutional and potentially grounds for a legal challenge.

Gill Sennett

BBC Radio Humberside

The government is failing to do enough to protect communities at risk of flooding, a group of MPs has found.

Committee chairwoman Mary Creagh urged the government to pay for the upkeep of existing flood defences, as well as investing in new ones.

The government said it was investing "record amounts to protect the nation".
