Good evening. Taxi drivers in Grimsby claim there has been a

:00:10.:00:13.

significant increase in violence towards them. A new group in the

:00:14.:00:19.

town called Taxis for Change say it is getting so bad that it could lead

:00:20.:00:28.

to a shortage of night time drivers. Roy has been a Taxi Driver for 13

years. He says more recently violence has increased. This month

realised it was more than that. I was a key. A colleague of mine came

target and are very vulnerable. Police are urging drivers not to

:01:01.:01:03.

pick up people if they think they look suspicious. Groups of people

:01:04.:01:12.

will wake till they get to the destination and they will rob their

takings. We see more of that at weekends. Nursing to taxi drivers,

if something doesn't look right, don't stop for that person. Group

has been found in the town with more than 70 members. They say violence

:01:32.:01:38.

could lead to a shortage of drivers during the night. It is quite bad

the same. Lincolnshire skier Jade Etherington

:02:17.:02:19.

says she was honoured to lead out Team GB at the closing ceremony of

:02:20.:02:22.

the Winter Paralympics in Sochi this afternoon. It follows a hugely

:02:23.:02:25.

successful games for the partially sighted skier in which she won four

:02:26.:02:27.

medals. The most successful British woman in

:02:28.:02:30.

the history of the Winter Paralympics leads out Team GB during

:02:31.:02:33.

today's closing ceremony in Sochi. Four medals in four separate events

was enough for Lincolnshire's Jade Etherington and her guide Caroline

:02:37.:02:39.

Powell to break a record that has stood since 1984. And it could have

:02:40.:02:47.

been more. Illness prevented Jade from competing in her last race, the

:02:48.:02:51.

Giant Slalom, this morning. On Twitter she said she was gutted, but

:02:52.:02:55.

that soon turned to joy when she revealed she had been chosen as the

:02:56.:03:01.

Team GB flagbearer. She said she was honoured to have been selected and

:03:02.:03:07.

hoping she would be well enough. A proud moment for her families and

:03:08.:03:10.

supporters back home. And Jade is due to arrive back in

:03:11.:03:13.

the UK tomorrow. Parts of the A158 in Lincolnshire

:03:14.:03:16.

have been closed in both directions for most of the afternoon because of

:03:17.:03:20.

a crash. The road in Fulnetby was closed because of what police

:03:21.:03:22.

described as a serious accident involving a car and a motorcycle.

:03:23.:03:27.

East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire MPs are urging the Chancellor to invest

:03:28.:03:31.

in the region, ahead of Wednesday's Budget. Many are hoping George

:03:32.:03:34.

Osborne will give the go`ahead to the electrification of the Hull to

:03:35.:03:39.

Selby rail line. MPs from all sides say families in our area need a

:03:40.:03:45.

helping hand from the government. Obviously we want to see the

:03:46.:03:51.

electrification of the real`life. We have some local asks as well as

:03:52.:04:01.

national ones. The big wish list would be killed more social and

:04:02.:04:05.

council housing. That stimulates the whole economy.

:04:06.:04:09.

Rugby league, and Hull FC have narrowly lost to Castleford Tigers.

:04:10.:04:13.

The Black and Whites led for much of the game, but ended up losing 19`16.

:04:14.:04:16.

Football, and Scunthorpe United boss Russ Wilcox says he's relieved to

:04:17.:04:19.

have ended a run of four straight draws with a win at Plymouth

:04:20.:04:23.

yesterday. The Iron extended their unbeaten run to twenty one games.

:04:24.:04:29.

Dave Syers scored this in the 79th minute ` his tenth of the season.

:04:30.:04:33.

Substitute Hakeeb Adelakun then caused the ball to rebound off the

:04:34.:04:37.

Plymouth keeper for the second. The result leaves them second in League

:04:38.:04:39.

Two. You will be able to watch all the

:04:40.:04:42.

highlights from that game tomorrow night, on Late Kick Off which starts

:04:43.:04:46.

at 11:20pm on BBC One. You can then see highlights of the

:04:47.:04:49.

Hull FC game and Hull KR against Wigan after that. That is on the

Lovely sunshine across England, Wales and eastern Scotland. Some

cloud on west facing coasts, and they struggle to get into double
