    Political editor, East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

    Hull North MP Diana Johnson has sent this tweet after she asked a question about rail electrification to David Cameron during Prime Minister's Questions.

    She asked why it was taking so long for a decision to be made and the PM responded by saying that £1.4 million would be spent upgrading Hull's Paragon station.

    It's fair to say Diana wasn't happy with that response.

    The force says they issued a warning following an incident involving bogus callers at an earlier date on the Isle of Axholme.
