There are concerns about the future of a scheme which it's claimed has

:00:08.:00:12.

eased the pressure on GPs in East Yorkshire.

:00:13.:00:14.

Support is being given in Bridlington to vulnerable

:00:15.:00:16.

and elderly patients to stop them visiting their doctor

:00:17.:00:19.

unnecessarily, but the funding is due to run out soon.

:00:20.:00:21.

In Bridlington, there's a large elderly population,

:00:22.:00:28.

Doctors say some patients use precious appointment time to discuss

:00:29.:00:35.

They're related to poverty, they're related to loneliness,

:00:36.:00:41.

being cold and we've found that we weren't able

:00:42.:00:43.

Well, local council and health services had an idea.

:00:44.:00:51.

They used a pot of government cash to fix things making people

:00:52.:00:54.

For 77-year-old retired builder Neil, that meant getting

:00:55.:00:59.

It's made a hell of a difference because there's no problems.

:01:00.:01:06.

I just need to press buttons and I get my system on.

:01:07.:01:10.

Neil was one of the first to benefit.

:01:11.:01:13.

319 people aged 75 or over, were told they could get help -

:01:14.:01:17.

75 of them got health and lifestyle advice, 38 were helped

:01:18.:01:22.

That resulted in more than ?300,000 being paid out they hadn't

:01:23.:01:30.

I asked this doctor what impact it had.

:01:31.:01:35.

I haven't been seeing my patients as much so that patients that I have

:01:36.:01:42.

been seeing who are coming maybe quite frequently and I was

:01:43.:01:45.

struggling to answer their needs, are now finding alternative sources.

:01:46.:01:47.

But the government's spending watchdog last month said

:01:48.:01:51.

there wasn't evidence projects like this were stopping

:01:52.:01:54.

Those behind this project says it just needs more time.

:01:55.:02:01.

It may ultimately down the line stop people attending hospital.

:02:02.:02:05.

At this early stage, that hasn't shown that position,

:02:06.:02:07.

but there is no reason to think that in the future if we continue

:02:08.:02:10.

to develop that, that wouldn't start to have that impact.

:02:11.:02:13.

Health bosses are desperately hoping to get more funding so they can

:02:14.:02:15.

expand this scheme across the East Riding.

:02:16.:02:17.

They say anything that could take pressure off doctors is priceless.

:02:18.:02:24.

Two people were hurt and ten homes had to be evacuated

:02:25.:02:27.

earlier after a car crashed into a house in Beverley.

:02:28.:02:31.

The accident on Grovehill Road caused a suspected gas leak

:02:32.:02:34.

and people had to leave their homes while it was dealt with.

:02:35.:02:40.

The Brexit Secretary has insisted the government is working

:02:41.:02:43.

on a contingency plan should EU negotiations go wrong.

:02:44.:02:46.

The Commons Foreign Affairs Committee said it would be

:02:47.:02:48.

a serious dereliction of duty by the government not to do so.

:02:49.:02:51.

But speaking on The Andrew Marr Show earlier -

:02:52.:02:54.

the Haltemprice and Howden MP, David Davis, said they've been

:02:55.:02:57.

planning for all the possible outcomes of the negotiations.

:02:58.:03:05.

The aim is to get a good outcome, I'm confident we will do that. One

:03:06.:03:14.

of the reasons we don't talk about it much is that we don't want people

:03:15.:03:17.

to think, this is what we are trying to do...

:03:18.:03:18.

Lincoln City's manager says his team can be proud -

:03:19.:03:20.

after their FA Cup run came to an end last night.

:03:21.:03:23.

The Imps were the first non-league side to reach the quarter-finals

:03:24.:03:25.

But last night they were beaten 5-0 by Arsenal.

:03:26.:03:29.

They're now looking ahead to their FA Trophy Semi-Final

:03:30.:03:31.

reflect, I think we should be proud reflect, I think we should be proud

:03:32.:03:42.

of the journey we've been on in this club competition. We will learn from

:03:43.:03:46.

it and make sure we will come back bigger and better.

:03:47.:03:49.

A woman from Scunthorpe and her dog have won an award at Crufts.

:03:50.:03:53.

Sally Deegan and Bowser were announced winners

:03:54.:03:54.

Sally says that Bowser has been a huge help since her diagnosis

:03:55.:03:59.

Time for a look at the weather now, with Jennifer Bartram.

:04:00.:04:08.

Good evening, a much colder night in store tonight than in recent days, a

:04:09.:04:14.

fair amount of cloud initially which breaks up and we see clear spells

:04:15.:04:17.

develop through the night. Temperatures under clear skies

:04:54.:05:01.

But from all of us here, have a good night.

:05:02.:05:05.

Good evening. For many places it was a fairly cloudy day on suspend but

:05:06.:05:12.

there was sunshine for western areas during the afternoon, and here are

:05:13.:05:15.

the clear skies at sunset in Northern Ireland. Thanks to weather

:05:16.:05:20.

watcher Robin for this picture, those clear skies have been making

:05:21.:05:24.

their way further east ward. Temperatures are dropping away, we

:05:25.:05:28.

have seen temperatures of freezing in parts of Northern Ireland. More

:05:29.:05:32.

cloud rolling in during the latter part of the night but towns and

:05:33.:05:36.

cities down the five and six m the countryside many of us will see the

:05:37.:05:39.

temperatures a degree or so above freezing, so a slight touch of frost

:05:40.:05:45.

across the rural parts of England and Wales for instance, Scotland

:05:46.:05:49.

too. We will see more cloud on Monday edging south-east wards
