    BBC Local Live

    The President of the European Parliament, Martin Schultz, is to investigate the conduct of the two UKIP MEPs that were involved in an altercation on Thursday.

    Steven Wolfe (pictured left in hospital) collapsed in Strasbourg and was taken to hospital following a 'heated exchange' with the Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire MEP, Mike Hookem (pictured right).

    Today, Mr Hookem spoke to the BBC and said he did not punch Mr Wolfe.

    He dismissed the incident as "handbags at dawn" and a "scuffle."

    An investigation by the European Parliament could see the MEPs suspended from voting and their expenses cut.

    But North East Lincolnshire Council wants the closed season to be extended to four months because of fears about flooding risks.

    Hull City Council says there won't be an independent inquiry into the baby ashes scandal.

    They teamed up with other families from across the country and took their campaign for an inquiry to Westminster.

    But today, Hull City Council said an inquiry won't take place because the Ministry of Justice has already done "significant work."

    Mrs Trowhill told the BBC  she's "livid" there'll be no local inquiry into why babies' ashes were scattered without parents' knowledge.

    East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

    Shop owners who place advertising boards on the pavement in Hull city centre could soon be prosecuted as part of a council crackdown. 

    There are concerns they make it more difficult - and dangerous - for people with disabilities to get around. 

    But business owners say they need to attract customers because city centre renovations have hit their profits.

    Quote Message: The pavements in Cleethorpes are very narrow and they insist on putting A boards out. I’m disabled and have to use a mobility scooter. It’s so bad that most of the time I have to go up the road because there’s no room on the pavement. from Mr Drinkall
    Mr Drinkall
    Quote Message: I find that A boards on the pavements are hazardous and have seen and experienced tripping on them especially when the streets are busy. I also trade in Hull city centre but would not dream of putting customers or any member of the public at risk of injury. from Angela

    Quote Message: I own 2 shops in Lincolnshire and I have 2 flags outside. I have no problem with the public. My problem is with the mobility scooters bashing into them. We need them to get the public in otherwise we wont get the footfall. from Phil Sutton on Sea
