    The suspected robbery took place outside the Sainsbury's store on Anlaby Road just before 20:00 on Tuesday.

    Neither the victim or offender were found by officers despite "extensive searches", police say.

    The possible victim is described as white, aged between 40 and 50-years-old, about 5ft 5in tall with a large build and long grey hair in a ponytail down her back.

    A woman's been arrested following the sudden death of a 48-year-old man in Hull.

    Ambulance workers reported Michael Logan's death on Saturday 20 August after they were called to an address in Mulcourt on the Orchard Park Estate. 

    His death is being treated as unexplained and a police investigation is currently underway.

    A man from Hull is among three men charged with fraud in relation to the horsemeat scandal of three years ago.

  10. Families of Beverley care home residents say the news is a bombshell

    BBC Look North

    Fifty elderly residents of an East Yorkshire care home have been given one month to find somewhere else to live. 

    The privately run Westwood Park care home in Beverley is closing. 

    Residents' families have been told it's because of large property repair bills.

    Colin Mitchell's mother in law Trudy is one of those being forced to move:

    We are still waiting to hear back from Londesborough Healthcare Ltd who run Westwood Park.

    East Riding Council says it will work closely with the care home's residents to help find them alternative accommodation. 

  11. Hull city centre workers sacked for drink and drugs

    BBC Local Live, East Yorkshire and Humber

    The company behind the redevelopment of Hull city centre says it has sacked 27 workers over the past two months because they were under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

    Eurovia says it routinely tests all staff as part of health and safety standards.

    Those sacked include both permanent staff and sub-contractors. 

    The company says it's had no impact on the project.

  12. It's the end of an era for Grimsby's East Marsh estate

    East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

    The demolition of flats in Grimsby has started. 

    Shoreline Housing is knocking down Comber Place in the East Marsh estate, as part of a major redevelopment of the town. 

    It says the flats were unpopular, losing money and being vandalised. 

    They'll be gone by the end of October, and the neighbouring tower blocks are expected to come down next year.

  13. Century-old Hull FC shirt is on its way to Wembley

    David Burns

    Presenter, BBC Radio Humberside

    One Hull FC fan will be traveling to Wembley to watch tomorrow's Challenge Cup final in a shirt which belonged to her great granddad.

    Emma Wrigley's shirt was originally worn by Gregor Rodgers who was in the squad in 1914.

    I spoke to Emma earlier to find out more:

  14. Hull FC can end Wembley 'curse' against Warrington - Paul Cooke

    Matt Newsum

    BBC Sport

    Paul Cooke retired a player assured of a place in Hull FC's Challenge Cup folklore, but he would give anything to once again conjure a cup-winning moment against Warrington at Wembley on Saturday.

    Paul Cooke

    And with it, end his former club's hoodoo at the national stadium - a victory that would again see the black and white half of Hull party in the streets and forever silence the other half of the city.

    Cooke was the hero in the 2005 showpiece, crossing to put the Airlie Birds within a Danny Brough conversion of victory against Leeds Rhinos.

    However, that success was at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium with Wembley being rebuilt - and not getting the chance to play at the national stadium remains a minor frustration in a fine career.

    "If I could pull the kit on for one more game, this would be the one," the 35-year-old tells BBC Sport.

  15. Weather forecast: A fine and dry afternoon

    Abbie Dewhurst

    Weather Presenter, BBC Look North

    We should continue to see plenty of fine, dry weather this afternoon with broken cloud but also some good spells of sunshine.

    It'll feel pleasantly warm in the sun with gentle to moderate westerly winds and highs of about 21C (70F).

    The club's bidding for a first ever win at the national stadium and full back Jamie Shaul says he hopes his second appearance in the final will bring joy:

    Quote Message: Very, very confident this year...and hopefully we will get the win. We've got some great players at the moment, and the the likes of Sneyd as well and obviously Gaz are getting better and better with age. I'm just looking forward to the whistle going and getting out there." from Jamie Shaul Hull FC player

    And we'll have a special Sportstalk after 18:00 tonight on BBC Radio Humberside coming live from London ahead of that final at Wembley tommorow.

  17. It's a bit like neighborhood watch...but for dog walkers

    Gill Sennett

    BBC Local Live, East Yorkshire and Humber

    After a number of fires were started between Cleethorpes Leisure Centre and Pleasure Island between April and August, a new initiative's been launched in a bid to tackle suspicious activity.

    The idea is to get dog walkers looking out for things like graffiti, fly tipping or people acting in a suspicious manner.

    It's hoped Dog Watch will reduce the number of fires being started deliberately in the area.
