    Definitely a work in progress!

    It's a bit of a muddy mess now but the Reverend Neal Barnes from Holy Trinity Church tells us it's all going to plan.

    Earthworks in Hull Trinity Square
    Quote Message: It's going to be an amazing space. I hope that people just bear with us. I know that some were a bit upset about the tree going and so on, although it was causing a lot of damage to our fabric, to our drains and actually the tree itself was quite weak so it that was a health and safety issue. Gradually the wall will come down over the next couple of weeks and we'll be able to see the square as a unity which of course it was until about 160 years ago, and I think we can just imagine the kind of wonderful things that can happen in that space and be the centre of the Old Town." from Neal Barnes Reverend, Holy Trinity Hull

  13. Arts funding is still available for Hull

    David Burns

    BBC Radio Humberside

    For the first time since the liquidation of Hull and East Yorkshire Community Foundation I've spoken to the Arts Council about it.

    The social investment charity was meant to manage arts funding for the city but it collapsed in December leaving 136 creditors and owing just over £663,000.

    Today the Arts Council has reassured us that as soon as they find the right group to take over the project that pot of cash is still there and ready for use.

    Quote Message: The remaining £2.4m has been ring fenced for Hull and we've already begun the process of getting a new Creative People and Places project up and running in the city so; last week we met with the city's cultural collisions group, we met with other interested parties and we talked them through a process by which we hope to be able to get the money back and into city and working hard for culture as soon as possible." from Pete Massey Senior manager, Arts Council

  18. Government say strike by junior doctors' is 'unnecessary'

    Louise Wheeler

    BBC Look North

    The Department of Health says it is disappointed that junior doctors' are striking outside hospitals.

    The Hull and East Yorkshire Hospital Trust say they have cancelled 200 appointments.

    Patients have been assured that their safety won't be comprised.

    Quote Message: This strike is completely unnecessary. We have now agreed the vast majority of the contract detail with the BMA but it’s a great shame they have broken the agreement we made at ACAS to discuss the outstanding issue of Saturday working and pay for unsocial hours. from Department of Health
