    A new documentary looks at the books inspired by the landscape of the Yorkshire coast. 

    Poet and academic John Wedgwood Clarke discovers how writers have been inspired by the Yorkshire coast and how their work has changed the way we think about one of the most beautiful parts of England.

    He takes a trip through Whitby and Scarborough towards Hull, following in the footsteps of Bram Stoker, the Brontes, Winifred Holtby and Philip Larkin.

  10. Ex Tory councillor attends first council meeting since offensive Jo Cox post

    Chris Arundel

    BBC Radio Humberside

    The disgraced former Tory councillor Dominic Peacock is attending a council meeting for the first time since the end of June. 

    He was thrown out of the East Riding's ruling Tory group then after posting offensive comments online about the late MP Jo Cox - and later cautioned by the police. 

    If Mr Peacock had not attended a council meeting by the end of next month he would have been automatically removed from the council leading to a bye-election.

  15. Campaigners furious over minor injury unit proposals

    Amanda White

    BBC East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

    It's looking likely that many of East Yorkshire's minor injuries (MIU) units will close.

    The Clinical Commissioning Group has released a draft consultation document in which they want to replace the area's five current units with two or three Urgent Care Centres.

    Withernsea, Hornsea and Driffield could loose their MIU all together.

    I met up with June Barton of Hornsea Cottage Hospital League of Friends and Barbara Jefferson who is a local campaigner.
