    Imagine spending four years training and two hours in the water - only to be disqualified.

    To say he's upset is an understatement - but if it was me I'd have been less restrained.

    It could cost North East Lincolnshire council another one million pounds to repair a listed building in Grimsby. 

    Part of the Victoria Mills building has deteriorated and the council has already had to pay out a million pounds to make it safe after its owners failed to repair it. 

    Residents in the building were evacuated earlier this year after high winds made it unsafe.
