There was late interest from Sunderland for Mason's signature but he picked Hull City. 

He joins the likes of Michael Dawson, Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore as ex-Spurs players in the ranks and that's bound to have been influential. 

Still on the go is a move for Manchester United striker Will Keane... He's thought to be undergoing a medical today.

A spokesman for Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust says: "The Trust has admitted breaching its duty of care towards Mrs Huggett for suggesting a form of treatment which was inappropriate in her particular circumstances.

Stem cell 'huge difference' says patient

Crispin Rolfe

Reporter BBC Look North

A multiple sclerosis patient from East Yorkshire says pioneering stem cell treatment has improved his condition so much that he may be able to return to work. 

Lance Gordon, who lives near Beverley, had to raise £40,000 to travel to Mexico for the procedure, but says it's already making a huge difference to his quality of life.

I've seen improvements straight away... I've just suddenly got my balance. I can stand up and have a conversation with people and just stand there."

The treatment Lance is undergoing, HSCT, is in a trial phase here in the UK, but there is caution about whether it will help more than just a handful of patients with MS. 

The MS Society say they are looking forward to seeing the results of the trials because it does hold a lot of promise, but say at the moment the treatment does also carry a lot of risk.

It comes just months after the World Health Organisation described the air we breathe in parts of Scunthorpe and Hull as unacceptable.  

Hull City Council has told us it monitors areas in the city which show a high level of pollution and says locations need to be monitored for over a year to be fairly compared with air quality objectives.

Can Team GB help northern England rise again?

Bethan Bell

BBC News Online

Broadcaster Melvyn Bragg has called for the government to follow the model of Team GB's Olympic success and invest in the north of England.

Melvyn Bragg
BBC

He believes the region, with its history of producing industrial and creative giants, has "a magic gene pool" which could put the UK "back on track".

Bragg, whose new Radio 4 series The Matter of the North explores the region's history, says its most important resource is "the people".

"We gave British athletes the money, the training and equipment and we beat a big country like China," he says. "If we gave the same resources to the North, just think what we could achieve.

"The North is different to the rest of the country. Different in the head and the heart."
