    The letter highlights cutting food waste as a key measure in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and deforestation.

    As part of the campaign, each of the 25 breweries have brewed a new beer for a limited edition collection that uses leftover bread which would otherwise have gone to waste.

    Wold Top, based in Driffield, has brewed a dry hopped Lager called ‘Barm’ for the series.

    Kate Balchin at the brewery said: “Working alongside Toast and other like-minded brewers to raise awareness of climate issues is really important and we hope this project captures the imagination and attention of those attending COP26.”

    Bradford's Lister Park (pictured) has received the award for the 20th year in a row.

    "It means so much for the visitor economy and it means so much to those communities."

    Other winners include Golden Acre Park in Leeds, Rother Valley Country Park and Rowntree Park in York.

    Humberside Police are investigating the theft of a church bell at St Matthew's church in Withernsea that worshippers didn't realise was missing for six days.

    Staff reported a break-in last Monday but didn't realise some of the damage had been caused by the bell being dropped from 30ft (9m).

    They finally noticed its absence when it failed to ring at Sunday service.

    Rev Martin Faulkner said it "didn't occur" to them "to look up".

    He told BBC Radio Humberside that "instead of getting the lovely ding sound... we got a sort of funk."
