    The MP for Cleethorpes, Martin Vickers, wants an overhaul in the ways England deals with the risk of flooding.

    A House of Commons Environment and Rural Affairs committee report has said there should be a UK floods supremo, new flooding and coastal boards and a rivers and coastal authority.

    MPs said floodwater should be stored on agricultural land, argued for tougher rules on house builders and stricter standards on repairing flooded homes.

    The government, however, said it it saw no need for organisational change.

    A 66-year-old motorist was punched in the face and left with a black eye and bloodied nose after an attack in his own car in Grimsby.

    He was driving along Healing Road on Monday when the driver of a grey BMW forced him to stop. 

    The driver of the BMW got out of his vehicle and assaulted the 66-year-old through the open window before leaving the scene. 

    The suspect is a white man, in his mid-30s and between 5ft 6ins and 5ft 7ins tall with short dark hair.

    Did you know that used chewing gum can actually be recycled?

    We don't mean it can be chewed again! 

    It can be turned into useful stuff such as frisbees, mobile phone covers and even Wellington boots.

    Now people in Barton are considering getting Gumdrop bins, which turn a mess like this (pictured) into recycled Wellies.
