    BBC Humberside Sport

    Hull FC could be second in Super League after tonight's clash at St Helens - if they win the game.

    Court of Appeal judges have dismissed the latest challenge from residents over the status of a holiday home park near Beverley in East Yorkshire (pictured).

    Lakeminster Park

    Lakeminster Park's chalet owners are being evicted from the site by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

    This latest case had hoped to overturn the findings of a planning inquiry three years ago, which said that the properties were built there without permission.

  7. Northern rail strike over next three days

    The rail union RMT is planning three days of strike action on Arriva Rail North starting tomorrow.

    The action is about the long running dispute over rail safety and driver-only-operated trains.

  8. £300k to stop young Hull men becoming abusers

    Hull City Council has been awarded £300,000 to support young men aged 16-17 who are at risk of committing domestic abuse.

    The money, which has come from the Home Office, will be spent on a new programme designed to reduce offending rates.

    Quote Message: The government changed the national definition of domestic abuse in 2013 and they changed that to reduce the age range to 16 because we know that nearly 50% of young people are in an abusive relationship if they're aged 16-24, so we know that it's a group that requires those interventions." from Vicki Paddison Strategic Domestic Abuse Services Manager at Hull City Council

    Paul Murphy

    BBC Look North

    Quote Message: If you look from Flamborough Head to Spurn Point you end up coming up with budgets of billions, unless somebody invents some new technology which doesn't involve phenomenally expensive amounts of rock being put in the way then I think we've got to accept as King Canute sought to demonstrate in the past, however powerful you might think you are nature is more powerful still." from Graham Stuart Beverley and Holderness MP

  15. New calls for full inquiry into blood contamination

    A Hull man who was among thousands infected by contaminated blood during the 1970s and 1980s is once again urging the government to hold a full judicial inquiry into why it happened.

    Glenn Wilkinson

    Glenn Wilkinson was diagnosed with hepatitis C in 1983 after a routine operation to remove two teeth at Hull Royal Infirmary.

    He describes the contamination scandal as the worst peacetime disaster since the Second World War and says it's time someone was prosecuted.

    Mr Wilkinson has now been backed by a call in the Commons by Hull North Labour MP Diana Johnson for Theresa May to address the issue.

    Responding, the Prime Minister said serious allegations have been made and information will be looked at by minsters from the Department of Health:
