East Riding MP to speak on adult social care tonight on Look North

Following calls from an East Yorkshire man for the government to fully fund adult social care, the MP for Beverley and Holderness, Graham Stuart, will be speaking to Look North tonight.

North East Lincolnshire UKIP Councillor joins Conservative Party

Richard Madden

BBC Radio Humberside

A UKIP Councillor in North East Lincolnshire has defected to the Conservatives.

Nick Pettigrew who was UKIP councillor for the Freshney Ward in Grimsby is joining the council's Conservative group.

He says the local UKIP group has no clear direction and is ineffectual. He's been welcomed by the Conservative group.

I'm pleased to welcome Nick on board. He's a hard-working councillor for the Freshney Ward and I'm sure he'll be a great asset to our Group on the Council. Nick will be the third ex-UKIP councillor to join us."

Watch: 'We believe the moves made his condition worse'

Sarah Sanderson

Political Reporter East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

The son-in-law of an East Yorkshire man who lived in five different private residential homes in twelve months has been speaking to Look North.

Pat Maguire believes having to move so many times had an adverse effect on his father-in-law.

His family are calling on the government to fully fund Adult Social Care.  

The government responded saying:

We recognise the pressures of an ageing population which is why we recently announced almost £900m of additional funding for adult social care over the next two years. This Government has gone further than any before it to bring together health and social care and given the NHS an extra £10 billion a year by 2020/21. But as the Prime Minister has made clear, this is not just about money. That’s why we’re working to find a long-term solution which helps councils learn from each other to raise standards.”
