Now on BBC1, its time for the news where you are.

:00:00.:00:13.

The team behind Hull's year as UK City of Culture say it's

:00:14.:00:17.

going to welcome "more visitors than ever" - after 60,000

:00:18.:00:19.

people came into the city centre on its first day.

:00:20.:00:21.

As well as those watching the week-long light and sound

:00:22.:00:24.

spectacular, organisers estimate tens of thousands more also watched

:00:25.:00:26.

the huge fireworks show from points along the north and south banks

:00:27.:00:29.

Here's our culture correspondent Anne-Marie Tasker.

:00:30.:00:41.

Hull's reign as UK City of Culture came in with a bang,

:00:42.:00:44.

as 15,000 fireworks exploded across the city's sky.

:00:45.:00:51.

25,000 people packed in, to see a show organisers promised

:00:52.:00:53.

would be bigger than London's on New Year's Eve.

:00:54.:01:03.

I thought the show was amazing. It was good to hear the. I can't wait

:01:04.:01:13.

to see all the other events and I will certainly be going to a lot of

:01:14.:01:17.

them, great for the city. A lot of work must have gone into that and it

:01:18.:01:21.

is very impressive and good to see something so spectacular in Hull.

:01:22.:01:25.

But before the fireworks, another spectacle had

:01:26.:01:27.

For a week, Made in Hull will look back at a century

:01:28.:01:31.

of the city's history - the blitz, the dozens

:01:32.:01:33.

of trawlermen lost at sea and happier times like

:01:34.:01:35.

Hull City's Premier League promotion.

:01:36.:01:46.

There are lots of people and apparently there will be 8000 people

:01:47.:01:51.

coming and going in the next couple of days and hopefully even more. I

:01:52.:02:00.

can't wait to hear and see how the audience respond. It is the story of

:02:01.:02:04.

Hull. Elsewhere, crowds experienced

:02:05.:02:04.

what it would be like to walk out onto the pitch at the Kcom stadium -

:02:05.:02:07.

experienced installations - and watched other films on some

:02:08.:02:09.

of the city's iconic buildings. When Hull won the City of Culture

:02:10.:02:15.

title three years ago, the City Council said it would bring

:02:16.:02:18.

an extra ?60 million into the city. Organisers hope an extra million

:02:19.:02:32.

visitors will come during 2017 - this opening event's got them off

:02:33.:02:34.

to a good start. The reaction has been hugely

:02:35.:02:46.

positive and it'll will come more visitors than ever and it will

:02:47.:02:49.

change the city for the better as we look towards what we want the city

:02:50.:02:50.

to be in the future. Three and a half tonnes of fireworks

:02:51.:02:52.

got city of culture off to an explosive start -

:02:53.:02:54.

one organisers hope to maintain You've been sending us your pictures

future, not just his footballing career but his normal life. We

:04:33.:04:37.

actually have more staff on than we normally would have. Over the last

:04:38.:04:44.

few days we have been receiving an unprecedented demand for the service

:04:45.:04:48.

and we have actually been receiving a 999 call every few seconds.

:04:49.:04:50.

One of Lincolnshire's biggest planned new housing developments

:04:51.:04:52.

is to get "garden village" status from the government.

:04:53.:04:54.

The site to the south west of Grantham known

:04:55.:04:56.

as Spitalgate Heath will see almost 4,000 new homes built

:04:57.:04:59.

as well as schools, offices and a retail developments.

:05:00.:05:01.

Government money will go towards developing the new community

:05:02.:05:03.

These fields, at Spitalgate Heath just outside Grantham,

:05:04.:05:11.

have been earmarked as the site for a new type of development -

:05:12.:05:14.

It would see a brand new community, complete with facilities

:05:15.:05:21.

like a school and shops, built in open countryside.

:05:22.:05:24.

But in Grantham today, the announcement received

:05:25.:05:25.

We haven't quite seen anything quite like garden villages before, only

:05:26.:05:36.

garden tones but I don't think they are overambitious and if anything

:05:37.:05:39.

they add little to housing supply. They are good step in a new concept

:05:40.:05:43.

but they want alone solve the housing supply problem. I think the

:05:44.:05:51.

tone can grow and get a bit larger and attract new shops to the town

:05:52.:05:56.

centres and that is all good. It is probably going to get congested and

:05:57.:06:00.

affect everyone coming into the town from that end. If you are building

:06:01.:06:05.

new villages are not prevailing amenities then places are closed.

:06:06.:06:12.

Plans to build 3700 new homes on this site have been on the table for

:06:13.:06:16.

a number of years, but today's announcement that the project has

:06:17.:06:19.

been given garden village status means along with 13 other sites, it

:06:20.:06:26.

will be able to access government expertise and a ?6 million fund over

:06:27.:06:29.

the next two years to help accelerate the project and overcome

:06:30.:06:30.

delays. a new village here will still need

:06:31.:06:31.

planning permission before it any building can start,

:06:32.:06:34.

and it may be many years Hull City were beaten 3-1

:06:35.:06:37.

by West Bromwich Albion despite taking the lead

:06:38.:06:45.

in the first half. Robert Snodgrass put the Tigers

:06:46.:06:47.

ahead but West Brom came back Scunthorpe Utd led until the 84th

afternoon winning 3-1 It looks like much of this week will

:06:54.:07:16.

be dry but with some rain spreading from the West and through Friday. At

:07:17.:07:20.

the moment clear as a bell with the temperature dropping away fairly

:07:21.:07:24.

smartly. A cold night with widespread frost rurally and the

:07:25.:07:31.

temperature down to -1 so take care on untreated surfaces. Tuesday look

:07:32.:07:34.

set to be fine and dry with probably more in the way of cloud but never

:07:35.:07:38.

the less it should be bright with spells of sunshine. Numerically, the

:07:39.:07:43.

temperature should be high compared with today but a fresh west when

:07:44.:07:48.

should take the edge of the temperature, so HLA-DR and Wednesday

:07:49.:07:53.

back to the sunny skies. A fine day on Thursday but the risk of rain

:07:54.:07:56.

spreading from the West. That is the forecast.

:07:57.:07:59.

We are back later tonight, goodbye for now.

Good evening. It has been turning colder and clearer and

Good evening. It has been turning colder and clearer and our weather

watchers have been capturing the sunshine. Here is the scene in

Derbyshire and where we have had the clear skies by day, we are in for a

:08:21.:08:25.

cold night tonight. Temperatures already plummeting, particularly

:08:26.:08:29.

towards the south with some icy stretches across parts of central

and southern England, and into
