    Each council has paid at least £100,000 to host this year's event and some businesses have questioned the financial benefits it's supposed to create for them.

    One fish and chip shop in North Yorkshire, North Street Fisheries in Ripon (pictured), is closing for the day as its owners say they have lost money on "every event" as customers can't get to them.

    Meanwhile, on the North York Moors, Fiona Gardham, who runs a B&B in Goathland, has told the BBC it would be full anyway because it's a bank holiday weekend, so the business sees no benefit.

    Welcome to Yorkshire says last year's event benefited the region by £98m.

  9. Huawei leak row: Hull MP's question on Australia 5G ban

    A Hull MP has asked why the government has not followed Australia in blocking its networks from using 5G technology provided by Huawei, the Chinese firm at the centre of a row over a high profile leak.

    Some countries fear Huawei is being used by the Chinese government to spy on people, and the US wants its allies in the "Five Eyes" intelligence grouping - which includes the UK - to exclude the company.

    Last year, Huawei said the Australian government had banned it from providing 5G technology for the country's wireless networks.

    Following a recent meeting of the National Security Council, it was reported the British government had approved the supply of equipment by Huawei for the UK's new 5G data network despite warnings of a security risk.

    In the House of Commons yesterday, Labour MP for Hull North Diana Johnson questioned this move:

    Responding, culture secretary Jeremy Wright said governments around the world were "wrestling with these very complex questions" and "we may reach differing conclusions".

    He said conversations with security and intelligence partners would be taking place "very shortly" and "this is a subject I have no doubt will be high on the agenda".
