  8. Labour MP says Dong investment shows it's in UK's economic interests to be part of EU

    Political editor, East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

    Hull North MP Diana Johnson has told the Prime Minister that Dong Energy's decision to build the largest offshore wind farm off the East Yorkshire coast shows the importance of EU membership.

    The Prime Minister responded to the Labour MP:

    Quote Message: Well I'm delighted with the news because this government has given great support to Siemens and Dong Energy and I think we have the biggest offshore wind market anywhere in the world because we have given the regulatory certainty that industry is needed. And what it is achieving in the East of England is not just one big factory but industrial regeneration of all the industries that relate to it. But irrespective of the outcome of this EU referendum we have to make sure that Britain is the best place in the world to invest and grow a business." from David Cameron

    BBC Humberside sport reporter

    Hull Kingston Rovers head coach Chris Chester is pondering a defensive rethink ahead of naming his 18 man squad for their opening Super league game of the season at home to Castleford on Sunday. 

    After shipping in over 100 points in two pre season games, Chester has told me that who plays at full back and on the wing is his main focus. 

    However, the Robins boss says the two weeks they've had in training since losing 60-20 to Hull FC have now laid the ghosts of that thrashing.
