Welcome. BBC Look North has learned that more than 7 tonnes of rubbish


has been cleared from one of East Yorkshire's busiest roads in the


last two weekends. East Riding of Yorkshire council, which is


responsible for the A63, says amongst the rubbish are hundreds of


bottles of urine, which have been thrown from vehicles. Kate Sweeting


reports. It's been called the gateway to


Hull and East Yorkshire, the A63 is one of the areas busiest roads, but


many businesses are claiming the increasing amount of litter is


giving visitors the wrong impression. It's a problem local


MPs are now keen to solve. If you get off the ferry, it looks


unsightly, rubbish blowing around, it has been mentioned by businesses


that are interested in investing. It needs to be tidied up. It looks


as if we don't care about the area. We are promoting the area. It is


not just this road but rural roads people have raised it with me. A


big increase in litter. 40 tons of rubbish is cleared, it costs


taxpayers �45,000. Nationally, the bills come in at nearly �10 million.


We want businesses to be placed in the best possible light. My


business is based on tourism and family attractions. People expect


more. The biggest problem is people are lazy. Passengers chucking stuff


out. It is not a good impression. Amongst the rubbish are hundreds of


bottles of urine thought to have been discarded by lorry drivers,


and even syringes. Some residents have called for community payback


workers to be used to pick up litter - something the council says


isn't safe. It's a dangerous road, a high-speed vehicles and we have


to have restrictions. The staff need to be trained, highly trained,


using the equipment. We need to ensure everything is done safely


and motorists are not distracted. The council is now calling for more


people to report littering in the hope of encouraging drivers, to


clean up their act. An elderly care hospital ward in


Lincolnshire which was strongly criticised by the Care Quality


Commission in February is to close. The Clayton Ward at Lincoln County

criticised for unacceptable levels of care of patients and problems

streets of Beverley today for the re-enacting of the Easter Story.

This is the third passion play to be staged in the town. It marks for


Christians regard as the most important date in the religious


calendar. It's a huge reminder and refined as we move through the town,


the public ask meaningful questions about what it is all about and what


we're witnessing. It is quite an amazing way of being an evangelist.


With dramatic impact, Jesus was played by Mark, a role which could


not be more different from his day- job as a flooring contractor.


appearance plays a big part. The first year we did it I was the only


one in Beverly with a beard and long hair. They asked me to play


the part of Jesus. It's a privilege. Beverley passion was performed by


members of seven local churches, a realistic portrayal which was to


move many to tears. It breaks my heart. It is as real today as it


was then. The passion play could be a biannual event in Beverley, a


moving reminder of what Easter is all about.
