It comes as Visit England say Yorkshire had the greatest rise in visitor numbers anywhere in the country.

More people came on day trips to the county and the amount they spent went up too.

This is magnificent news for Yorkshire and confirms the many positive results our members have individually reported over the past 18 months. Through events like the Tour de Yorkshire which have showcased the county on a global scale, as well as high profile national marketing campaigns taking Yorkshire across the country, it's great to see everyone's hard work paying off and our attractions reaping the benefits."

Hull and Humber Environment Forum, which has compiled the figures, says the trend for fewer bus journeys is concerning.

In response, Hull City Council says it has introduced several measures in a bid to reverse the trend such as bus lane cameras and the Hull Card, which offers passengers a discount.

Funding will also be made available to further develop a northern park and ride scheme, according to the council.

In somewhere like Hull we've seen a lot of the employment move out of the city centre. People are also going out less and staying at home more. If people don't need to travel, they won't."

It was announced on Wednesday the Hull market was shutting down.

The previous operators had run into financial difficulties.

We hope that the market can be up and running within the next few weeks. We are extremely keen to bring this vibrant and thriving venture back to Hull. We were as disappointed as everyone else that the actions of the previous operator led to the market ceasing trade and our focus now is on finding someone to fill the gap it has left."

The Playing Out project began in the city earlier this year, with residents in Ella Street and Aysgarth Avenue taking part.

The project allows communities to apply to the council to close their road temporarily, to allow children to play outside safely.

Hull City Council says it is now being rolled out across the city, so anyone can apply to shut their street.

What has been amazing about organising Playing Out on our street is that it has increased the sense of togetherness. I know so many more of my neighbours now and I hear and see other people forming connections and friendships. "
