    The "essential roadworks" are being carried out from Monday to Friday on a stretch of Bricknell Avenue, near the Tesco Express store.

    Part of the road will be closed with a diversion in place via Hull Road, Cottingham Road and Fairfax Avenue, although residents and pedestrians will still have access.

  7. The 'current' situation on York's electric cars

    The number of electric and hybrid vehicles registered in York has been revealed - there were 342 electric or hybrid cars in the city at the end of 2018.

    Electric charge point

    The figures also show there are currently only 40 charging points across York, with the council's plans for two new fast charging hyper hubs set to boost the numbers.

    Last week it was announced East Yorkshire will be among the first to get an electric car charging forecourt.

    The one in Bilton will have 24 bays and allow drivers to charge up in less than half an hour.

    A "patchy" network of charging points is discouraging UK drivers from embracing electric cars, analysis suggests.

    Dr Stephen Hall has been researching electric vehicles at Leeds University.

    He says: "The real issue is, if you're going to put a charge point in, you want to charge a big battery quickly, which means you have to spend quite a lot of money upgrading a local grid and the charge points are quite expensive.

    "And because electricity is so cheap, it's really difficult to get your money back from putting a charge point in."

    Led by Hull York Medical School it encourages people to look and listen out for signs that someone is struggling to breath, or has a cough that doesn't go away.

    It's been funded by Yorkshire Cancer Research and is part of a larger investment of almost £5m in Hull York Medical School, to tackle inequalities of the disease in and around the city.

    Professor Una Macleod from the school says: "There's a large amount of lung cancer in Hull and chest disease, so it is an area which would benefit from people attending a doctor with their symptoms.

    "That's the focus of the campaign, to encourage people with any change in chest symptoms to see their GP."

  13. DIY SOS volunteer 'lost for words' over own house rebuild

    A former roofer who volunteered on DIY SOS said he was "lost for words" after his home was renovated by some of the people he once worked alongside.

    Mr Hudson

    Darren Hudson, who uses a wheelchair, was left caring for his three sons, one of whom is severely disabled, after his wife died in December 2017.

    He said he was left "humbled" and speechless by the transformation.

    The ex-tradesman, from Hessle, near Hull, volunteered in 2014 when the BBC TV team went to Rise, East Yorkshire.

    They helped refurbish the home of Jason Liversidge who has Motor Neurone Disease.

    Mr Hudson started using a wheelchair two years ago after a spinal condition - caude equina syndrome - meant he was unable to walk.

    His wife died suddenly two weeks after he was discharged from hospital following back surgery. Months later, Mr Hudson lost both of his parents within 10 weeks of each other.

    "It's been a massive role reversal. It was just a day's work but to go from giving to being at the receiving end was unexpected," he said.

    Mr Hudson, who was left sharing a downstairs bedroom with his adopted son Oliver, who has hydrocephalus, said the transformation had had a "massive impact" on him and his family.

    "It's absolutely amazing. I can't put into words what these guys have done for us and what they're continuing to do for us."
