    Gill Sennett

    BBC Radio Humberside

    Plans for a new shopping and leisure area off Hull's Albion Street have been given the go-ahead.

    The site takes in the former BHS and Co-op buildings as well as the current council car park. 

    The proposals for the new Albion Square include keeping the large mosaic mural and constructing new retail and leisure facilities, including a new Ice Arena.

  5. More than an hour in an ambulance - waiting times treble

    Vicky Johnson

    BBC Look North

    The number of patients being kept waiting for more than an hour in ambulances outside A&E has more than trebled in two years at some hospitals in our area. 

    That's according to new figures obtained by the Labour party. 

    Ambulances should be able to hand over patients to A&E staff within 15 minutes of arrival. 

    Managers at Grimsby and Scunthorpe hospitals say they adopted a new approach six months ago which has already improved hand-over times.

    Quote Message: As the ambulance crew bring the patients in on their trolleys, they are greeted by a dedicated nurse who takes that hand over straight away. We aim to turn patients around in 15 minutes... which we are managing to do in about 75% of cases at the moment." from Peter Bowker Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Trust

    Natalie Glanvill

    Reporter BBC Radio Humberside

    Work is going to start on making it easier for pedestrians to cross the A63 Castle Street in Hull City Centre. 

    It's being done in time for the City of Culture celebrations in 2017 and will include widening the crossing and improving signalling to allow more people to use it at peak times. 

    Improvements will start this week and are expected to take two months to complete.

  11. Plans for new lakeside houses near Scunthorpe go on show

    Stuart Harratt

    BBC Local Live

    Plans for the first of five lakes in a £1.2bn housing scheme has gone on public display.

    The £2m pond is part of the Lincolnshire Lakes project near Scunthorpe that will see the building of 6,000 new homes and a business park.

    Plans showing the lake and houses surrounding it

    The site will also incorporate a new 12,000 seat stadium and training facilities for Scunthorpe United.

    Planning approval for the first phase was granted in July and work is expected to start in early 2017.

    As well as being used for water sports, the lakes will form part of the flood defences and drainage plan for the development.

    Concerns over the project had been raised by the local Conservative MP Andrew Percy as the site is located on a flood plain.

    The development is expected to be completed by 2028.

  12. New signings for Hull KR

    BBC Humberside Sport

    Hull Kingston Rovers have signed Danny Addy and Mitch Clark from the Bradford Bulls, on one year deals. 

    Addy, who's a Scotland International, had confirmed he'd be joining the Robins earlier in the year.

    They are the club's second and third new signings respectively ahead of their season in the Championship.

    Quote Message: We’ve been looking to increase the depth of the squad and both players have plenty to offer. Although they are still in their early to mid-20s, they have plenty of experience for their age, have a good knowledge of the Championship and they are both hungry to come to Hull KR and make an impression.
    Quote Message: Danny is able to cover a number of positions to a high standard whilst Mitch is a big prop with bags of potential. He’s got time on his side until he hits his peak as a front-rower, but he’s a strong ball carrier who will provide the team with some real impact and go forward." from Jamie Peacock Hull KR's Head of Rugby

    Plans for the first part of the Lincolnshire Lakes development near Scunthorpe in North Lincolnshire will go on show today.

  15. Hull Trains win a major award

    David Burns

    BBC Radio Humberside

    Three years at the top of the customer satisfaction survey, 100% satisfaction on their weekend services and two years at the top of the WHICH passenger league for reliability, availability and cleanliness.  

    It's perhaps unsurprising then that Hull Trains have been named as the UK Rail Operator of the Year.

    They've been rewarded with the title for their commitment to customers at this year's National Transport Awards.

  18. MEP Woolfe quits 'death spiral' UKIP

    A UKIP MEP who spent three nights in hospital after a row with a party colleague is quitting the party, saying it is in a "death spiral".

    Steven Woolfe, who had been running to be the next leader, told the BBC there was "something rotten" in the party.

    He also accused fellow Yorkshire and the Humber MEP Mike Hookem of inflicting a "blow" to his face in the row at a party meeting.

    Mr Hookem has acknowledged a "scuffle" but said he "categorically did not" throw a punch at his colleague.

  19. Spalding teenage murderers 'Bonnie and Clyde'

    The female defendant admitted manslaughter but denied murder, claiming to be suffering an abnormality of mental function which impaired her ability to form rational judgments. 

    But jurors - who heard that the defendants' toxic Bonnie and Clyde-style relationship "led on to" the killings - took two-and-half hours to reject the girl's defence and convict her of murder. 

    Her former boyfriend, who also cannot be named because of a court order, pleaded guilty to murder before the trial began.
