The MP for Beverley and Holderness, Graham Stuart, told us he had figures which show just half of emergencies were responded to within the eight minute target in his constituency.

The ambulance service says it aims to reach all patients as quickly as possible, but demand is increasing.

He joined Lizzie and Carl on BBC Radio Humberside this morning.

Grub attack!

James Piekos

Reporter, BBC Hull and East Yorkshire

Ever heard of a chafer bug? 

Well, it's a grub that lives under the soil and eats roots, especially grass roots and it's been causing havoc at Brough Golf Club. 

As you can see from my photos, whole areas of grass have been torn up by birds trying to eat the grubs. 

This has happened several times at the club and they're now using pesticide free controls to get rid of them.
