    Characters driving exotic vehicles competed to win a series of races, with the title "World's Wackiest Racer" going to the winner. 

    Well a real race, based on the TV programme, is going to take place in Market Weighton in July. 

    People from the area are being invited to design and build small vehicles which will race against each other down the steep Arras Hill, which runs down Beverley Road and into the town centre.

  19. Can you help stop loan sharks in your area?

    David Burns

    BBC Radio Humberside

    People in North Lincolnshire are being offered £5,000 if they can come up with ways to stop loan sharks from operating.  

    £20 notes

    It comes after officers raided two homes in the area. 

    The scheme is being headed up by the England Illegal Money Lending Team, who told me this morning that borrowing from loan sharks can easily get out of control. 

    They want people with ideas of how to raise awareness of the danger of loan sharks or how to stop them from operating to get in touch.
