Goodbye: Five things we learned today

Clare Crooks

BBC Radio Humberside

Thanks for joining me today on our live feed.

We'll be back tomorrow from 08:00 with all the latest news, sport, travel and weather.

Before I go here is a look at five things we didn't know when we got up this morning:

Temporary doctors 'costing millions'

Vicky Johnson

BBC Look North

National Health Service bosses in our area are spending millions hiring temporary doctors to cover staff shortages.

Some are charging more than £1,000 a shift.

The government put a cap on such spending but in some hospitals we've discovered costs are rising.

While hospitals in Grimsby and Scunthorpe reduced their agency nurse bill, the cost of fill-in doctors rose to more than £1m in one month.

There's a full report on BBC Look North tonight.

Clare Crooks

BBC Radio Humberside

This "tent city" sprung up in Queen's Gardens as part of a protest about the issue of homelessness.

BBC

They've been there almost a week.

Hull City Council say they have offered the occupants accommodation and will now begin legal proceedings to remove the protesters from the site.

Fundamentally, their actions are encouraging rough sleepers to remain on the street. This is totally unacceptable and we are left with no option but to instigate legal proceedings to remove the protesters from the site and city."

Here are the latest headlines across East Yorkshire and the Humber area:

Home is where the heart is

Caroline Brockelbank

BBC Radio Humberside

People living in care homes in our region are satisfied with the level of care they receive according to a report by Healthwatch in East Yorkshire.

Over 18 months, volunteers inspected 15 care homes across the county.

Overall inspectors found high levels of satisfaction from residents particularly on quality of care for residents with dementia and by the amount of personalisation available in most homes.  

However Healthwatch also found that some homes, particularly those using older buildings, struggled with storage and decor issues. 

There were also concerns regarding poor communication with other health and social care organisations.

A man was assaulted by a group of men after reporting them for using an e-cigarette on a bus.

The 34-year-old was attacked after getting off the 76/77 East Riding service from Hull in Withernsea Road.

As he left the vehicle, he told the driver a group of men were using an e-cigarette and they were challenged by the driver.

It's believed four men then got off the bus at the next stop and walked back to find the victim, verbally abusing him.

The victim went into a garden and knocked on the door of a house seeking help. 

However, the group followed him and assaulted him, before leaving the area after the incident on Tuesday, 4 October.
