    A school in Barnsley say they've been put off coming to Cleethorpes because of the charge to use council toilets. 

    Summer Lane Primary says 30p per child is too much money to pay. 

    And it's not just schools - some traders have told us they're worried it'll put people off visiting.

    East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

    Anti fracking campaigners have written to North Yorkshire County Council to say they believe its decision to allow fracking in Kirby Misperton is unlawful and they may seek a judicial review

    Councillors approved the plans last month - saying they were confident fracking could be carried out safely. 

    But Friends of the Earth and Frack Free Ryedale say the local authority didn't properly consider the issue of climate change.

    An East Yorkshire mum who was using Facebook while her two-year-old son drowned in her garden pond has had her prison sentence cut. 

    Joshua Barnett died in March 2014 after falling into an unfenced pond at his home in Woodmansey. 

    His mum, Claire Barnett (pictured), admitted child cruelty and was jailed for five years at Hull Crown Court last October. 

    But after reviewing the case and reading a moving letter from the mum, three senior judges today cut her sentence to three years.

    More needs to be done to ensure the Humber region benefits from the government's Northern Powerhouse agenda. 

    That's according to politicians and business leaders, who've been meeting in Hull to discuss how the area could attract more businesses and create more jobs. 

    Lord Prescott was among them.
