    Video footage recorded by Humberside Police's helicopter reveals the moment a "violent" attacker hurled tiles from a rooftop in a stand-off with officers.

    Clint Clay, 24, of Frodingham Road, Scunthorpe, assaulted Jason Potts with a machete and a hammer before taking to the roof of a house on Alexandra Road in Scunthorpe on 6 July last year.

    He denied assault and three other charges but admitted affray, and was sentenced to 13 years at Grimsby Crown Court on Monday.

  6. Labour party 'could lose traditional northern strongholds'

    Tim Iredale

    Political editor, East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

    There's a warning tonight that Labour could struggle to hold-on to its traditional strongholds in Northern Cities.

    It follows the party's defeat in the Copeland by-election to the Conservatives. 

    Pollsters say there's evidence that voters in cities like Hull are becoming increasingly disillusioned with Labour under Jeremy Corbyn's leadership - a charge denied by Mr Corbyn's supporters.

    Chris Arundel

    BBC Radio Humberside

    Engineers working on Bridge Street in Bridlington have been working longer hours this week to try to get roadworks finished sooner.

    The street is being redesigned as part of Bridlington's multi-million pound regeneration programme - but it's been delayed after problems were found with Victorian drains.

    Traders say it's badly affected their takings.
