  1. Sheffield fly-past: A day to remember

    It was a day of commemoration and celebration for Sheffield today, as the city hosted a special fly-past in memory of 10 men killed in a plane crash in the city during World War Two.


    The event was to honour the US airmen who were killed when their plane crashed at Endcliffe Park in 1944.

    Thousands of people turned up to show their support.

    A campaign for a fly-past started after a chance meeting between BBC Breakfast presenter Dan Walker and Tony Foulds.

    Mr Foulds, 82, witnessed the crash and has cared for a memorial in the park to the dead airmen.


    Many former servicemen and women from across the UK took part in today's event at Endcliffe Park.

    Dave Patterson, a former Marine who travelled from Essex to Sheffield for today's fly-past, said: "It's extremely important to remember those who died and important to remember the work of Tony Foulds, too."

  8. Scarborough chalet demolition 'on track'

    Local Democracy Reporting Service

    The demolition of several listed beach chalets in Scarborough's South Bay is expected to be completed before the summer season begins, the council says.


    The chalets, which sit below the Clock Cafe, have been cordoned off following the collapse of retaining wall in March this year which left them leaning at a 45-degree angle.

    In November, the chalets collapsed further and the council's chief executive, Jim Dillon, took the decision to move forward with the demolition rather than waiting for listed building consent, which was not expected to be granted until May.


    Now, in an update to be given to councillors at their full authority meeting, the cabinet member for major projects, Councillor Mike Cockerill, has informed his fellow members that it's likely the chalets will be down by summer.

    The incident happened at the Propaganda nightclub on Ferensway at about 03:00 on Saturday 2 February.

    The victim was left with serious injuries to the left side of his face after being hit with what was thought to be a bottle.

    Humberside Police are looking for a suspect with a distinctive "top knot" ponytail at the back of his head and possibly a tattoo near his left eye.

  11. Sale of York's Bootham Park Hospital site to go ahead

    York's former Bootham Park Hospital is definitely to be sold off after an attempt to keep it in public ownership failed, it's been confirmed.

    Bootham Park Hospital

    City of York Council and NHS bosses had applied to pause the sale of the former psychiatric hospital site so the potential for future developments could be explored.

    They hoped the seven hectare site would remain in NHS or public ownership so it could be an asset to the city.

    But it has been confirmed that the Department of Health and Social Care plans to go ahead with the sale of the 18th Century building which was shut in 2015 after inspectors found it was unsafe for patients and staff.

    In a joint statement, City of York Council and the local NHS said they were "very disappointed" at the decision.

    They say they want to "work with any bidders to understand the importance of the site and the opportunities it could offer the people of York".

  12. Sheffield and Tinsley canal bicentenary: Flotilla in force

    A flotilla of about 20 boats has travelled along the Sheffield & Tinsley canal to mark its 200th anniversary.


    The four-mile stretch of canal opened on 22 February 1819, linking Sheffield to the River Don and opening the city up to trade from across the UK and further afield.

    The parade began near the Don Valley Bowl and was led by a brass band playing music from The Full Monty.

    The boats arrived later in Sheffield where hundreds of people were waiting.

    When the canal first opened, 60,000 people turned out as eight boats full of coal travelled from Tinsley to the canal basin.

    Hambleton District Council's planning committee approved the fourth set of proposals to revamp Bagby Airfield, south of Thirsk, which could see new hangars, a clubhouse and catering facilities.

  15. Number of taser-trained officers doubles - Humber force

    The number of Humberside Police officers who are trained to use tasers has doubled over the past 18 months, the force has confirmed.

    Taser training

    Humberside Police says the taser is a vital tool to help combat rising violent crime in East Yorkshire and northern Lincolnshire.

    Insp Gary Jackson, who oversees taser training, says it is a "visual deterrent" which is "extremely effective in calming a person down and diffusing and gaining control of a situation" without even being used.

    AFL Architects, who worked on the Bonus Arena, said it was "proud" to see the venue included on the list:

  20. Lincolnshire council tax hike gets go-ahead

    A council tax rise of £60 per household in Lincolnshire's been approved by councillors.


    This is £61 on top of what the county council already takes.

    The Conservative administration says it needs to convince the government to give it more funding if it's to avoid further large rises in future years.

    Labour argues the council has more than £200m in reserves lying in 100 bank accounts.

    This tax rise, together with others planned by the police and district councils, will add about 90-pounds to Band D bills, taking those bills to about £1,800 a year.
