Hello and good afternoon. Police are looking for a man in connection
with an arson at a takeaway in Lincoln. This morning fire
investigators returned to examine the scene of the explosion, on St
Mary's Street in the city centre. Lincolnshire Police say they're
keen to speak to a man seen running away from the premises as the fire
took hold at around 11:45pm on Christmas Day. He was wearing dark
clothing and a black cap. Thousands of shoppers have hit the
high streets across East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire today in search of
a Boxing Day bargain. Retailers up and down the region opened early
and slashed prices to encourage families to head into town and city
centres on a bank holiday. I have actually brought some things
back that I bought before Christmas and I thought I would see what
there was. And hopefully managed to get a nice dress.
I tend to get most of my clothes on Boxing Day because I can't afford
it normally. Because it is the sales you buy out of season. It is
quite important. Everyone is with their family,
everyone is off work so it is a good time to go shopping together.
Now to football and Hull City's good run of form has come to an end.
The Tigers missed out on at point losing 1-0 to Middlesbrough. Barry
Robson scored in the 87th minute for the home side at the Riverside
stadium. In League One, Scunthorpe United lost 3-1 to Bury. The Iron
were leading after five minutes thanks to a headed goal from
defender Shane Duffy. But three goals in the second half meant the
northwest side took all the points. Grimsby Town got the better of the
Lincolnshire derby at Sincil Bank. It was Lincoln City's Conal Platt
who opened the scoring in the first half but the Mariners hit back with
a header from Scott Garner and 10 minutes later top scorer Liam Hearn
put the game beyond doubt. The two sides meet again on New Year's Day.
About 10,000 people attended the horse racing in Market Rasen today.
The Boxing Day event was the first since 2008. For the last two years
the meet has had to be cancelled because of bad weather. Organisers
say today's mild temperature has lured the crowds back to the
racecourse. Absolutely thrilled. The weather
has been fantastic. Logistics, it has gone brilliantly. A really
great crowd, heading towards 10,000. Absolutely delighted.
It is nice. It is friendly. I think there is a lovely crowd
here. There are babies in their pushchairs.
I've had some really happy days here.
It is a lovely day. Disappointing the last couple of years it was
cancelled because of snow but we are making up for it this year.
Mild temperatures meant that more than 30 people took to the sea in
Flamborough in East Yorkshire this morning for the traditional Boxing
Day Dip. Last year around �1,200 was raised for the local school and
organisers are hoping that this years attempt will better that
record. While most of us ever in the pub
for a festive celebration, these brave folk met up to take eight
Boxing Day dip. It may have been mild and sunny but temperatures
went so pleasant when they took the plunge in the harsh North Sea.
Very cold. Very cold. Even though there is no snow, it is still cold.
It takes your breath away and you can't wait to get out.
While some couldn't resist finding out what all the fuss was about,
the others made their way back to the pub for a drink. And now here's
the weather forecast with Sarah It has been a pleasant Boxing Day
across Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire. It stays dry and mild
