Humber Bridge glass lift plans rejected

BBC News Online

Proposals for a Humber Bridge visitor centre and glass lift have been rejected by a council.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council's planning committee voted 9-2 against the plans, which also included a hotel and a restaurant overlooking the water.

It was thrown out because of concerns over a 60,000 sq ft office block, which is part of the project. But the authority has said it would consider a revised plan.

The Humber Bridge Board said it was considering a response.

Toilet charge fee 'down pan'

Natalie Glanvill

Reporter BBC Radio Humberside

Charging to use public toilets in North East Lincolnshire hasn't raised enough money and some may have to close. 

Earlier this year a charge of 30p was brought in, but a report reveals there's still a cash shortfall and there's been an increase of vandalism at the facilities. 

At a meeting next week the council will consider reducing the charge to 20p.

Hull Kingston Rovers new Australian signing Andrew Heffernan has flown into the country today to join his new team mates for pre-season training. 

The 21-year-old winger was signed from Australian NRL side Penrith Panthers after previous experience with the Canberra Raiders.

He told BBC Radio Humberside Sport that playing for former Australian National team coach Tim Sheens at the Robins was a big lure.  

Obviously someone of his experience in the NRL, Super League and at an international level is very appealing, as well as working with youngsters, so hopefully he can have a similar effect on me."
