UKIP must pay some of MEP's libel case costs

A High Court judge has ordered UKIP to pay some of the legal costs for the Yorkshire MEP Jane Collins over a libel case against her.

PA

Jane Collins was successfully sued for libel by Rotherham's three Labour MPs.

It's not clear how much of the £670,000 bill the party will have to pay.

Mr Justice Warby said UKIP, for party political reasons, deliberately held up the settlement of the High Court defamation case until after the 2015 general election.

Harry Gration: My 40 years in broadcasting

Yorkshire Evening Post

Look North news presenter Harry Gration has to be one of the most down to earth people you could ever hope to meet.

Although we have met previously, when I catch up with him on the phone to talk about his 40 years in broadcasting, he is walking into Leeds and in between questions, he keeps having to stop to say hello to people.

Listen: Call for reassurances following collapse of Wakefield City Academies Trust

A public meeting is being held tonight following the collapse of an academy trust which ran 21 schools across Yorkshire.

Earlier this month the Wakefield Academies Trust said it was unable to "facilitate the rapid improvement" its academies needed.

The Department for Education said many of the schools within the trust were performing below the national average.

Only four of the schools are rated as good or outstanding by Ofsted.

Parents, staff and local politicians will meet at Hemsworth Community Centre this evening.

Jon Trickett, the Labour MP for Hemsworth, in West Yorkshire, will be there and says he's angry and wants reassurances from ministers:

Residents in Atwick say the traditional red phone box is in keeping with the look of the village and essential for residents who struggle with poor phone signals.

Weak pound boosts local exports

Caroline Brockelbank

BBC Local Live

It's thought the weaker pound and the Brexit effect are leading to more exports for companies in East Yorkshire and northern Lincolnshire.

Jars of jams, chutneys and packets of biscutes

New national figures show export orders from across the UK rose last month at the fastest pace since April 2010, and at the second highest rate since the survey began.

It's partly being put down to a weaker pound.

Cartwright and Butler in Gilberdyke have seen a 100% increase in exports which is partly due to increased demand in South East Asia for their biscuits, chutneys and condiments (pictured).

Clare Hardcastle has been working as a postie in South Cave for 19 years and has been bitten by dogs four times.

She said dog owners need to take more control of their pets:
