    Thanks for joining me today on the live feed for East Yorkshire and Humber. I'll be back tomorrow morning from 0800.

    To round off the day lets take a look at five things we didn't know when we woke up this morning.

    1. There'll be over 100 new homes in the Fruit Market area of Hull
    2. A Hull hostel has closed despite it being very close to the cities year as City of Culture
    3. Injections which are being trialed in Hull could help people with severe headaches
    4. There could be an ice rink alongside Grimsby Town's new stadium
    5. And Goole museums have donated old photos of the area to brighten up the town's hospital.

    'Bright' certainly can't be used to describe today's weather which turned out to be a bit dull and overcast. Thanks to our weather watcher for sending in this picture of the Humber Bridge from Barton-upon-Humber.
