  7. Beverley Prezzo restaurant to close

    A national pizza chain has announced it is closing its restaurant in Beverley.


    It is part of a restructuring plan for the company which will see 94 outlets shut across the country.

    The move is expected to lead to the loss of 500 jobs nationally.

    Prezzo says the restaurant in Beverley is likely to close in April or May.

  8. Woman seriously hurt in crash

    A woman has been seriously injured in a crash near Pocklington.

    Anyone with information is being asked to contact police.

  9. Ambulance crew thanks petrol station Good Samaritan

    Yorkshire Ambulance Service says it wants to say "thank you" to a man who helped out one of its crews in Hull.


    The paramedics were fuelling up their ambulance at the petrol station on Beverley Road in the early hours of Tuesday morning when it turned out their fuel card wasn't working.

    While they were trying to sort out the problem, a member of the public paid for the fuel.

    When the crew tried to arrange to repay him, the man refused, saying: "It's the least I could do after everything you do for us."

  11. Masterpiece on display in Hull after major restoration

    A rare baroque masterpiece is now on display in Hull after being under wraps for nearly 50 years.

    Castello painting

    The painting by the Italian artist Valeria Castello has been on loan to the Ferens Art Gallery since 1973, but couldn't be displayed because of its poor condition.

    Now the artwork, called Tobias Healing the Blind Tobit, which dates back to about 1650, has undergone a major restoration and is back on show.
