    Tonight's rugby league derby in Hull remains on - so far at least - with the home side monitoring the weather situation ahead of what's expected to be a "new record crowd" at Craven Park.

    Hull KR are set to host city rivals Hull FC in their opening match of the 2019 Super League season tonight.

    I'm told Craven Park pitch is fine, but the club is mindful of the safety of the surrounding areas, with a local rugby league official set to assess matters at lunchtime.

    There'll be full coverage of the game on BBC Radio Humberside tonight, online and on all frequencies:

    Fundraising co-ordinator Alan Burley said: "We're all safe in our nice warm homes and often feel it could never happen to us but unfortunately behind most rough sleepers there's a story that often revolves around a family breakdown or the loss of a job."

    A similar event will be taking place in Grimsby.

    Emma Hardy, MP for Hull West and Hessle, says it's important to find out why woman aren't able to be tested, to try and get more people going to their doctors.

    Latest figures show around a quarter of women in Yorkshire, who are eligible for a smear test, haven't had one in over five years.

    A new high speed train (HST) has been brought in from Great Western Railway to provide "resilience", according to managing director Louise Cheeseman.

    "We're all very sad at Hull Trains and we are all hurting, but actually we've started to build ourselves back up", Ms Cheeseman said.

    "Our HST will give us more resilience so our customers shouldn't see the level of disruption they have been experiencing."
