Lets look back at five things we didn't know when we woke up this morning.

  1. Grimsby fish supplier Icelandic Seachill has announced it will make 86 redundancies from their workforce.
  2. A majority of people have said they're against plans to introduce a Lincolnshire Mayor.
  3. The family of Koen Allwood say they've been left devastated after their son's memorial bench was vandalised.
  4. Hull City Council has approved plans to cut the budget by over £2m.
  5. Tributes have been paid to campaigner and entertainer Lord Rix. 

If you're in Grimsby tomorrow you can catch Peter Levy's on his slefie tour. This was him this morning in Skegness going on the log flume.

Hull Bridge to be turned into a piece of artwork

Anne-Marie Tasker

BBC Look North

An artist has been commissioned to turn Drypool Bridge into a work of art in time for Hull's year as City of Culture.

Artist Sarah Daniels has created a brief inspired by the work of John Venn, the 19th century mathematician and philosopher, who was born in Hull’s Drypool ward.

It will reflect the city’s links with the internationally-renowned Venn Diagram. 

As Drypool Bridge was due to be painted this year, we took the opportunity to ask local artists to submit their ideas for a visually striking design for the local landmark. The work will be completed as Hull gets ready to host the UK City of Culture 2017 celebrations.”

Political Reporter, BBC Radio Lincolnshire

People in northern Lincolnshire say they do not want one mayor for Greater Lincolnshire.

Ten councils in the area from the Humber to the Wash will decide whether to combine to form one authority in the hope of then becoming more devolved from London.

But after a consultation local people said they didn't want a mayor. 

The Leader of Lincolnshire County Council Martin Hill says they'll now look at how plans can be adapted.

Actor and disability campaigner Lord Rix has died aged 92, his family said.
