  9. East Yorks farmers concerned over biofuel plant closure

    The farming industry is reacting to the news that energy company Vivergo is to cease trading near Hull.

    Wheat grains fall from cupped hands

    The Saltend plant uses wheat supplied by 900 farms across the Yorkshire region, and also produces animal feed used by dairy farmers.

    Vivergo blame the Government for being too slow to introduce a new type of fuel, known as "E10" which is seen as more environmentally friendly and is being adopted by many other countries.

    The Government says they are committed to supporting the biofuels industry and to reducing carbon emissions from transport to tackle climate change.

    Quote Message: It's come as a nasty shock. We expected they were closing down for maintenance. We've all this wheat we've got to look at where this is going to go now we've lost one of our main markets. I suspect in the short term there's going to be a shock reaction to it and prices might fall accordingly." from Keith Wells Farmer, Driffield

    Quote Message: Like farmers across Yorkshire we can't stop feeding our cows protein, we have to get it from somewhere else. I try and supplement it through my own home grown feeds but the reality is I'm going to have to source this from elsewhere. There are other providers across the UK and overseas but of course bringing extra food from outside the area to here is going to cost me more." from Paul Tompkin Farmer, Market Weighton

    Journalist, BBC Look North

    This is McColl's newsagents in Market Weighton, a well-known shop on the High Street which is currently cordoned off by police after an incident in the early hours:

    The scene in Market Weighton

    There were reports from local residents of an explosion at the site at about 04:00 - as well as claims an angle grinder had been used on the cash machine.

    This morning, a couple of police cars and a scenes of crime van remain at the scene, with various officers in white paper suits going in and out of the newsagents conducting their investigations.

    The cash machine itself seems to have been quite badly damaged, although it's still intact.

    It remains in the shop, so I'm not entirely sure if the thieves got away with any money, but they have caused damage to the ATM.

    There's a fair bit of traffic disruption here this morning and the police investigation is obviously continuing.
