    • Unemployment has fallen in our region
    • The Breighton airfield helicopter victims are making good progress
    • Hull City seem to be very very unlucky with injuries

    And speaking of the Driffield Show, this cow had the right idea in the heat by cooling off with some wet towels. A tip for tomorrow maybe? Thanks to John Gaskin for sending in the photo.

    Climate change may provide fishermen on the east coast with new opportunities as new species of fish and shellfish move into the area due to climate change. 

    That's according to the Director of Hull University's Institute of Estuarine and Coastal Studies, Professor Mike Elliott. 

    It's just been announced the Institute is to take part in a Europe-wide research project investigating the effect of climate change on Europe's fishing industry.
