    Quote Message: The only must is to perform the best you can. I'd be disappointed if we didn't do that, if we didn't come up with the performance we're capable of. Everybody's got to perform to their potential, we have to do that as a group. That's the only must." from Willie Poching Acting Head Coach

    Gill Sennett

    BBC Radio Humberside

    People living on a mobile home development near Beverley say they've no immediate plans to leave the site despite an enforcement notice which comes into force at midnight. 

    All of the homes on the Lakeminster Park development are supposed to be removed from the site by then after retrospective planning permission for people to live there all year-round at was refused by East Riding Council.

    Following appeals, the decision was upheld and residents were given 18 months from September 2014 to move out.

    One group is pinning its hopes on the site owner getting planning permission for the homes on appeal.

    David Aldcroft says he's staying in his home until there's a definitive ruling:

    Quote Message: I'm hoping that some solution will be found that will satisfy us all without too much upheaval really. Ideally it would be wonderful if we won residency here which is a long shot. I think the land owner... Is still in the hope that something along those lines will happen although its looking pretty gloomy at the moment." from David Aldcroft Lake Minster resident

    But, just to smooth out any rough edges, officials are organising special courses for tourism businesses in Bridlington.

    I've been down to see the new Hull College training centre that's opened in Hull today.

    Here's what the Principal of Hull College, Graham Towse told me:

    Quote Message: Its a huge statement from the point of view of the college in terms of our strategic intent to invest in this type of training but also I think its a huge statement to the people of Hull that along with the companies that are investing here they've got a local college here that is investing in them, investing in their skills and making sure that they will be skilled for those jobs that are here now and in the future." from Graham Towse Principal of Hull College

  14. Sport: Hull City could lose out on automatic promotion place

    BBC Humberside Sport

    Hull City's automatic promotion place is under threat tonight after their 1-0 defeat at Birmingham City.

    The Tigers are vulnerable after losing to a deflected first-half goal at St Andrews last night.

    They hit the post and bar during the game but wasted a string of good chances to suffer their first defeat in six matches. 

    If rivals Middlesbrough avoid defeat at home to Wolves this evening, the Tigers will drop to third.

  16. Hull could get a Gypsy Moth - just not Amy Johnson's Gypsy Moth

    David Burns

    BBC Radio Humberside

    We've been getting an update about the campaign to get Hull Aviator Amy Johnson's plane back to the city. 

    MPs from our area have been trying to get the Gipsy Moth plane, Jason - which is currently at the London Science Museum - brought to the city. 

    Bi-plane used by pilot Tracey Curtis-Taylor who retraced Amy Johnson's flight from the UK to Australia

    But the Museum says it would be too difficult to move it. 

    Hull North MP Diana Johnson told me that after a meeting with the Director, they've now come to a compromise:

    Quote Message: What we agreed was that he would look now at what he can do to help us perhaps get a different gypsy moth. We can't have Jason because its so difficult to move him but we might be able to get one that can come up to the city for the Amy Johnson Festival and then perhaps leading into City of Culture as well." from Diana Johnson Hull North MP
