  1. Final weekend to see Hull's knife angel

    This is the final weekend to see the knife angel sculpture in Queens Gardens.


    The sculpture is made from more than 100,000 knives donated to the Ironworks, collected through police force surrender campaigns across the country.

    It stands at 27 ft tall and is a symbol against violence and aggression, and a memorial to those who have lost their lives to knife crime.

    PC Christian Sewell said: "While the sculpture has been in Hull, we rolled out our school programme as part of the #NoMoreKnives campaign to educate children of the dangers of knife crime.

    "The more young people that are aware of the dangers the more we can prevent young people losing their lives in knife crime."

    The piece will be moved from the city on 4 March.

  2. Police investigating after schools evacuated

    Police are investigating a security alert in Hull that resulted in two schools being evacuated this morning.

    Officers are looking into the origin of a phone call relating to Sirius Academy West and Ganton School.

    Humberside Police searched both buildings and their grounds but say they haven't found anything suspicious.

  3. Len Tingle placement remembers BBC Yorkshire politics editor

    An internship has been launched in memory of Len Tingle, BBC Yorkshire's former political editor.

    Len Tingle

    Tingle, from Cudworth near Barnsley, began his journalism career in 1981 and had been political editor for 17 years when he died of cancer in 2018 at the age of 63.

    The placement is open to students at seven Yorkshire universities that run a journalism degree.

    His widow Angela Tingle said journalism had been "a passion not a job".

    Tingle, who lived in the Huddersfield area for many years, was interested in journalism, Yorkshire and giving opportunities to young people from diverse backgrounds.

    The successful applicant will work in radio, television and online services while being mentored by BBC journalists.

    The seven universities are Huddersfield, Leeds Beckett, Leeds Trinity, Leeds, Sheffield Hallam, Sheffield and York St John.

  4. East Yorkshire landmark no longer to be 'run-of-the-mill'

    Local Democracy Reporting Service

    An historic East Yorkshire mill is to be given a new lease of life after it was awarded a £724,000 lottery grant.


    Hessle Whiting Mill, tucked behind the Humber Bridge, will be reopened with new displays looking into its history.

    There will also be improved access created to the Humber Bridge Country Park.

    The council will cover the remainder of the £968,869 scheme.

    Councillor Stephen Parnaby said: "The project will unlock the tourism potential of this beautiful nature reserve by investing in the country park's heritage assets."

    The work will begin in summer, with completion expected in the autumn.

  5. New prison to 'completely dominate' village - Protesters

    Opponents of a proposed new prison in East Yorkshire say the new jail will be far too big for the local area to cope with.

    Prison plans

    The Ministry of Justice wants to build a jail capable of housing 1,400 lower risk "Category C" inmates next to the existing Full Sutton high security prison to create new, modern prison places.

    But Colin Clarke, who is organising a demonstration in Stamford Bridge tomorrow, says the village will be "completely dominated" by the new prison.

    Mr Clarke says: "It's an attractive area and it doesn't want to be dominated by four-storey blocks - 'H'-block prisons - which are 14m high.

    "They could find a lot better location that's more suitable for visitors and for staff going to work and back."

  10. No crossing patrol for East Yorkshire school - Council

    A school crossing patrol won't be reinstated after the council deemed the road safe without one.

    The school

    Parents have expressed fears that a child might be knocked down at a junction on the A163 in Holme on Spalding Moor.

    But a risk assessment by East Riding of Yorkshire Council has found the road doesn't need a crossing patrol.

    The council has said local people can raise the money to pay for a crossing patrol themselves.
