    There could be a few showers overnight tonight, but tomorrow should be mostly dry and bright.

    And it's looking dry and warm, with sunny spells for Sunday and Monday too.

    Scientists have identified a new condition called Chronic Breathlessness.

    Twin brothers Andrew and Keith Noble, from Hull, both suffer from the same illness.

    BBC Radio Humberside Sport

    There's not long to go until Hull FC look to make club history in the Challenge Cup final against Wigan tomorrow.

    Hull's Marc Sneyd, who won the Lance Todd Trophy for his man-of-the-match display in last season's final, believes they have the quality available to retain the Challenge Cup.

    Marc Sneyd

    Sneyd said: "If everyone concentrates on their own job and everyone is happy with their performance after the game, then we'll be coming away with the trophy.

    "I'm confident we've got the team to be able to do it and on the big stage we've got big name players that will guide us."

    What are you up to this bank holiday Sunday?

    But this isn't any old early morning swim - Tom is aiming to swim all the way around Flamborough Head, from the North to South Landing.

    He's doing it raise awareness of the Flamborough Lifeboat, which is having a fundraising day.

  16. Flood victims in Immingham feel they had to "beg for help"

    Gemma Dawson

    BBC Look North

    People living on a new housing estate in Immingham say they still haven't had an explanation about why their homes flooded.

    Eight homes on the Habrough Fields Development were flooded following heavy rain earlier this month.

    Residents say they are angry that nobody has taken responsibility for what happened.

    Hildy Badics' home was one of those flooded. She said "No one has been to see how we've got on or what kind of damage has been done. It has been left totally down to us."

    "Sometimes it felt like you had to beg for help."

    Immingham flooding

    In a statement Anglian Water said: "Our investigations show that our sewers were all working and although a foul water pumping station at Habrough Fields suffered a power outage that night, we do not believe this contributed to the flooding."

  17. Update on burst water main in Immingham

    Anglian Water says it is working to restore water supplies to homes in the Immingham area.

    A water main burst last night and the company says many people may have lower than normal water pressure.

    It says the main has now been fixed, but complications mean the water cannot yet be returned to full pressure.

    It says things should be back to normal by 12:00, but you should run your taps for a couple of minutes if your water is cloudy or discoloured.
