Joshua Cook

BBC Radio Humberside

Hull Kingston Rovers have been boosted by the addition of two more young forwards to their 2017 squad in the shape of Kieran Moran and new arrival George Milton.

The Robins have signed 21-year-old prop George Milton on a two-year deal from Doncaster, making him the club's fourth new signing. 

Meanwhile, Scottish international Keiran Moran will honour the deal he signed earlier in the year, which lasts until 2018.  

It’s promising news both for next season and the long-term future of the club to bring these two on board."

Mixed thoughts over Beverley's Flemingate centre

Sarah Corker

BBC Look North

East Yorkshire's newest out of town shopping area opened to much fanfare this time last year.

Beverley's Flemingate has attracted 1.5 million visitors over the past 12 months. 

But has it lived up to the hype? Independent traders are annoyed that more cafes and smaller units have been allowed to open in the centre, designed for large national chains. 

Some shoppers say Flemingate has been one big disappointment. I went to speak to businesses in the centre to find out more.

Hull City: 'We can win games at this level' says Mike Phelan

BBC Humberside Sport

Hull City's players should be motivated by a desire to avoid setting a new club record of consecutive Premier League defeats when they meet at Southampton this weekend. 

That's according to their Head Coach Mike Phelan. 

The Tigers have lost their last six league games.

Mbokani boost for Hull

BBC Sport

Hull boss Mike Phelan needs to arrest his team's alarming slide down the table quickly and should be aided by the return of striker Dieumerci Mbokani for Sunday's game with Southampton. 

A hamstring injury has sidelined Mbokani for several weeks but Phelan told his Friday news conference the player is back in training and in contention this weekend. 

The head coach added that the game will probably come too soon for midfielder Robert Snodgrass, who is nevertheless back in training after suffering an ankle injury in the defeat to Stoke on 22 October.

Listen: Yorkshire UKIP MEP blasts High Court's Article 50 ruling

The Brexit process has been thrown into chaos after the High Court ruled that Theresa May doesn't have the legal power to trigger it

Instead, the judges said it's up to Parliament to decide on beginning the formal leaving procedure, known as Article 50. It means MPs and peers could either block Brexit or delay it.

Mike Hookem, UKIP MEP for Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire, has told BBC Radio Humberside he isn't happy about the ruling:

Listen: Brexit legal challenge - The view from Grimsby

James Piekos

Reporter, BBC Hull and East Yorkshire

The government has suffered a significant defeat at the High Court over its plans for leaving the European Union. 

Judges yesterday upheld a legal challenge brought by campaigners who'd argued that ministers should consult Parliament before beginning the formal Brexit process. 

The government has resisted giving MPs such a vote, with the Prime Minister, Theresa May, saying she would trigger Article 50 by March next year. 

The government's to appeal against the decision. 

I've been getting reaction to the news from people in Grimsby:
