    BBC Local Live, Hull and East Yorkshire

    That's all from me today, but we're back on Tuesday morning from 08:00. Your news, sport and weather updates will continue throughout the Bank Holiday weekend.

    Before I go, let's have a look at five things we didn't know when we woke up this morning:

  2. Missing teenager could be in Scunthorpe

    Teenager Lee James Kilty, aged15, was reported missing from Northampton on 9 April but is believed to be in the Scunthorpe area where he is known to have friends.

    The police say it's unusual for Lee to be missing for this length of time and there are concerns for his welfare.

    He is described as white, 5’ 7” tall, of a slim build and with short ginger hair.

    Anyone with information is being asked to get in touch with Humberside Police.

  3. MP calls for purge on illegal ivory

    BBC Radio Humberside

    East Yorkshire MP Sir Greg Knight is calling on the government to launch an inquiry into the sale of illegal ivory by antiques dealers. 

    Only ivory dating from before 1947 can be sold legally in the UK, but the MP thinks some dealers are selling more modern ivory, and passing it off as antiques - something he says is encouraging poachers to kill endangered elephants.

    Thousands of the animals are killed illegally for their ivory every year.

    BBC News Online

    Ten life-sized sculptures of figures marking the links between Hull and Iceland are to go on show at the University of Hull later this month.

    The cast iron statues will form an art trail on the Cottingham Road campus and represent navigation markers known as Cairns, which are piles of stones used as landmarks in Iceland to guide both ships to the harbour and people on land.

    They are part of the university's Cairns exhibition and have been produced by Icelandic artist Steinunn Thórarinsdóttir, who created the bronze 'Voyage' figure, which was stolen from the pier in 2011 and later replaced.

    A specially commissioned composition will be performed by lecturer and trumpeter Dr Simon Desbruslais at the foot of the Voyage statue as part of John Grant's North Atlantic Flux: Sounds from Smoky Bay festival, which starts on 28 April.
