    Hospital officials say a temporary shortage of consultants is to blame for disruption to rheumatism services in parts of East Yorkshire.

    The services affected are provided by the York Teaching Hospital NHS Trust, at Bridlington and Scarborough Hospitals.

    The trust says things should start to get back to normal before Christmas, but patient James Wharne from Driffield, says the trust has handled the problem badly

    A shop assistant from Hull who's being held in an Egyptian jail on drug smuggling charges has told the BBC she didn't know the pills she was carrying were banned and that she's desperate to come home.

    Laura Plummer, 33, is due in court on Saturday accused of smuggling 300 tablets of Tramadol, a painkiller that is legal in the UK but not in Egypt.

    Ms Plumber says they were given to her for her Egyptian boyfriend's "back problems".

    Local police says that ignorance of the law is no excuse.

    Her relatives hope the judge at her custody hearing in the Red Sea Resort of Hurghada on Saturday will believe she made an innocent mistake drug smuggling can be punishable by death in Egypt.

    North Lincolnshire has the highest gender pay gap in our region.

    Campaigners highlight 10 November as the point in 2017 when a woman on an average wage stops being paid relative to their male counterparts.

    Here's what the pay gap looks like across the country:

    In North Lincolnshire men earn £3.26 per hour more than women. The gender pay gap here is 24.4%.

    Campaign group the Fawcett Society say progress in closing the pay gap has "stalled" and warns the gap in pay between men and women will take 100 years to close.

    The government has introduced a legal requirement for all large employers to publish their gender pay and bonus data by April 2018.
