Good afternoon. A pedestrian has died after being hit by a car on the
A16 near Spilsby in Lincolnshire. Police say the man, who's thought to
be in his 50s, was walking along the road just after midnight last night.
The road was closed for more than six hours while investigations were
carried out. The Humber coastguard is warning of
the risks of an area of marshland on the south bank, after it was called
out to help around 40 people who were partying on the site last
night. The Humberston Fitties near Cleethorpes is an area of mud, sand
and marshland. The coastguard says the group was in potential danger
from the high tide. Huskie and malamut owners in Hull
say they're concerned there will be a rise in the number of dogs being
abandoned because their owners are being threatened. The group,
'Huskies in Hull', says there's been a growing number of cases of abuse
from local residents when they walk their pets. They say recent
publicity over dangerous dogs has given many an irrational fear of the
breed. Since the recent news coverage, it
has been very negative towards Sled dog breeds. We have had people 's
dream dashed `` screenwriters and drag their children away and they
picked their dogs up. People don't want anything to do with them
really. Hull City's manager, Steve Bruce,
has been described as "the manager of the year" by Newcastle United
boss Alan Pardew. It's after guiding Hull City to eleventh in the Premier
League table. Newcastle travel to Hull today. Gemma Dawson reports.
At the KC stadium this afternoon, The Magpies will be keen to avenge
this 3`2 home defeat to the Tigers back in September. But speaking
earlier this week, Newcastle's manager had nothing but praise for
his rival. I have to say, Steve Bruce is, up to this point, probably
manager of the year. He has another ten games, but what he did last year
to get them promoted and to get them in the position they have been in is
a fantastic region `` achievement. He should be very proud.
But at a press conference in Hull, Pardew's compliment prompted a
sceptical response. He is not playing mind games, is he? We've
only been going six weeks! I'm not going to read too much into that,
but it's very kind of him. Steve Bruce has 15 months left on
his contract with the KC, and has told the BBC he sees no reason why
he wouldn't negotiate to have it extended. But this afternoon, his
focus will be on giving Newcastle a tough battle.
Hull KR are still waiting for their first win of the new Super League
season. The Robins lost 30`10 to leaders Castleford. The visitors
scored twice in the second half to pull away after a tight first half.
Let's get a look at the weather now with Jennifer Bartram.
