    The MP for Hull East Karl Turner is angry after the boss of Hull College stated that he'd been "highly inappropriate and disrespectful" by addressing college staff on strike. 

    On Monday's Drivetime we covered the strike by Hull College staff over pay and lesson observations.

    Karl Turner showed up at the picket line and says he was later sent a letter by the CEO of the college, Gary Warke, complaining about his actions.

  19. Appeal to help cafe owners carry on feeding Bridlington's homeless

    James Piekos

    Reporter, BBC Hull and East Yorkshire

    I've been to a cafe in Bridlington this morning which feeds the homeless and says it's struggling to attract enough customer to keep it going.

    Kingfisher Cafe on West Street feeds the homeless with profits from customers using the café but they're now worried people think they're only a café for the homeless.

    Sue Clark who is the chair of the Comittee who run it says the food is donated and is cooked by volunteers and they will never turn anyone away.
