  2. Scunthorpe United take on Shrewsbury

    BBC Humberside Sport

    Scunthorpe United could go top of League One if they win at Shrewsbury tomorrow. 

    They've made their best start to a season in 12 years and scored more goals than any other English side.

    Midfielder Stephen Dawson (pictured) thinks a lack of big egos in the squad is part of the season for their good form.

    Quote Message: If you look around our team there's no one thinking they are better than they are. We know where we are, we're in league one, so at the moment we're league one players and just because we're second in the league doesn't mean we're going to win every game, or that people are going to fear us. There's no fear in this league." from Stephen Dawson Midfielder Scunthorpe United

    Sarah Sanderson

    Political Reporter East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

    Lincolnshire has been told it must have a directly elected Mayor if it wants a devolution deal. 

    The Leader of Lincolnshire County Council, Martin Hill has told his colleagues that unless there is an elected Mayor then a deal will not go ahead.

    The mayor would cover the whole of Lincolnshire including North and North East Lincolnshire.

    Last month the public voted against having an elected Mayor.

  13. Police crack down on racist graffiti

    Andy Comfort

    BBC Radio Humberside

    Has racist graffiti become a bigger problem in Hull recently? 

    In recent months, threats and offensive symbols including the swastika have appeared on buildings in Hull's city centre.

    I spoke to Sergeant Chris Swaby from Humberside Police about the problem.

    He told me there has been a slight increase but says any hate crime will not be tolerated.

    Quote Message: If people are targetted for the colour of their skin, their sexuality or having a disability clearly that's something they can't change and the impact can be devastating. For some people who are the offenders... they've got no understanding of the impact, so education plays a very big part in this and that is something that is factored into the work we do." from Sergeant Chris Swaby Humberside Police

    Mike Phelan says he has been offered the manager's job at Hull City.

    The 53-year-old, caretaker boss since Steve Bruce's departure in July, was named Premier League manager of the month for August.

    But, with a takeover of the club pending, Phelan's long-term future at the club has been uncertain.

    "It's a case now of sifting through the offer and getting down to what hopefully will be further discussions," he told BBC Radio Humberside.
