:00:12.:00:15.

Derek Sarkar and his 14-year-old son Ethan died on the A614 near

:00:15.:00:20.

East Cowick. Mr Sarkar's wife and daughter remain in a critical

:00:20.:00:23.

condition in hospital. A third woman, Sheila Stavert-Lee from York,

:00:23.:00:28.

also died. Our correspondent Vicky Johnson reports.

Close friends of 14-year-old Ethan Sarkar paying their respects at the

:00:31.:00:36.

family home. The teenager from Birmingham died along with his

father Derek in a head-on collision at the Aire and Calder bridge on

:00:40.:00:50.
:00:50.:00:53.

the A 614 near Goole. He was funny, amazing. If you were down, he would

:00:53.:01:00.

always make you smile. He was always there for you. Hard working.

:01:00.:01:04.

Tributes to Ethan were also left outside his school. He was a front

seat passenger in his father's VW Golf. The driver of the other car,

:01:08.:01:11.

70-year-old Sheila Stavert Lee from near York also died. Ethan's 9-

:01:12.:01:14.

year-old sister Abbey and his mother Karen are still critically

:01:14.:01:19.

ill in Leeds General Infirmary. People living near the scene of the

:01:19.:01:23.

crash say it is a dangerous road and more needs to be done to

:01:23.:01:32.

improve safety. I think it is traffic calming

:01:32.:01:40.

measures and making people aware that it is a dangerous sport.

:01:40.:01:43.

Friends back in Birmingham say the Sarkars were in East Yorkshire

:01:43.:01:49.

visiting relatives when the tragedy happened.

:01:49.:01:52.

In other news, the National Farmers Union is warning cattle farmers to

:01:52.:01:55.

look out for cases of Schmallenberg, a disease which causes birth

:01:55.:01:59.

defects in livestock. One sheep in Lincolnshire has been infected. And

:01:59.:02:02.

with hundreds of spring calves due to be born over the coming weeks,

:02:02.:02:05.

it's a tense time for many cattle farmers. Linsey Smith's report

contains a picture of a dead lamb. I just got back and had a look

Fantastic. Michael Read's family have been

:02:25.:02:28.

breeding pedigree Lincoln Reds for over 70 years. Over the next few

:02:28.:02:32.

weeks, many of these cows will give birth to young worth up to �1,200

each. Meaning Schmallenberg could be an expensive problem for cattle

:02:34.:02:41.

farmers. Touch wood, we have not had an infection so far. It is at

:02:41.:02:47.

the back of your mind that there is this disease. Cattle are about 10

:02:47.:02:56.

times more valuable than sheep. It is obviously very serious for the

:02:56.:03:00.

sheep for work as well. So far, there have been 176 cases

:03:00.:03:02.

of Schmallenberg confirmed across England. 164 in sheep, one of which

:03:02.:03:08.

is in Lincolnshire. Only 12 cases have been found in cattle. But with

:03:08.:03:11.

spring calving underway, hundreds of cows are due to give birth

:03:11.:03:21.
:03:21.:03:22.

imminently. I do not think this is a Schmallenberg Virus stop Nick

Timson is a vet from Louth. He has been asked to examine a dead lamb,

:03:29.:03:32.

which it turns out does not have the disease. The National Farmers

Union say farmers and vets are the eyes and ears of the industry. It's

crucial any suspected cases are reported to help track

born sometimes with a twisted neck or bent legs.

:03:59.:04:01.

Scientists in Surrey are still testing midges to better understand

:04:02.:04:04.

this disease. Until a vaccine is developed, there is nothing farmers

:04:04.:04:07.

can do to protect themselves. For many, that vaccine can't be

:04:07.:04:14.

developed soon enough. Linsey Smith BBC Look North.

Organisers behind this year's Hull marathon say it was such a success,

:04:31.:04:33.

David Hockney's exhibition of paintings featuring East Yorkshire

:04:33.:04:40.

:04:40.:04:43.

have been to see the exhibition by the Bridlington-based artist, which

:04:43.:04:46.

includes many scenes from the Wolds. It's hoped the show will help to

:04:46.:04:52.

put East Yorkshire on the tourist map.

:04:52.:04:59.

I think it is very good for people to be reminded of her beautiful --

:04:59.:05:07.

of how beautiful East Yorkshire is. It is not a conventional tourist

area. I hope now that people will discover the pleasures of rural

landscapes. It has been a busy Easter Monday

We wanted to put together some kind of event to inspire young children
