One ward has been closed at Grimsby’s Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital due to an outbreak of diarrhoea and vomiting.

The Amethyst ward has been fully closed to new admissions and transfers. 

Patients on the ward will not be discharged to nursing or residential homes while they remain an infection risk.

This type of illness does come into the hospital from time-to-time, as in other hospitals across the country, and that is why we have a robust infection control policy in place to deal with such eventualities."

Many of you have been getting in touch on our Facebook page about our earlier story.

Humberside Police are concerned they're not "scratching the surface" when it comes to stopping motorists using mobile phones while driving.   

Here are a few of your comments:

It beggars belief how these people think the law doesn't apply to them."


I am fed up of seeing people using their phones whilst driving. Some even texting, it's so scary."


The biggest problem is the addiction to their phones. They don't want to miss out on something that is probably trivial."

Autumn changes to train times

BBC Look North

East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

A number of train services across the region are being changed from today to tackle seasonal delays.

TransPennine Express say they're making timetable changes to reduce disruption due to "leaves on the line" at this time of year. 

Some services to and from Hull have been cancelled or changed.

It may sound like a joke – leaves causing a problem for our huge and heavy trains but the residue created by squashed leaves leads to very difficult driving conditions which can affect the way we operate, much like driving on black ice and we all know how tricky that can be."
