first British champion. That is it for now.

Good evening. Independent traders in Beverley say

:00:11.:00:13.

the disruption caused by the refurbishment of the market place

:00:14.:00:16.

has lost them thousands of pounds in business. They're calling on the

:00:17.:00:20.

council to do more to advertise the fact that the works are coming to an

:00:21.:00:24.

end in the hope of attracting more shoppers back to the town. Caroline

:00:25.:00:26.

Bilton reports. They've been working on this for

:00:27.:00:30.

over a year but the end is finally in sight. In four weeks' time, the

:00:31.:00:33.

transformation of Beverley's Saturday Market will be complete but

:00:34.:00:36.

for local traders here, it has come at a cost. It has affected takings

:00:37.:00:42.

really badly. I would say that currently we are taking about half

:00:43.:00:45.

of what we would normally take in a week at the same time of year.

:00:46.:00:50.

Emma Curtis runs this clothing boutique ` she fears the work may

:00:51.:00:54.

have put people off shopping here. People now need to be encouraged

:00:55.:01:01.

back. There needs to be a lot of good advertising about it, work

:01:02.:01:04.

coming to an end and Beverley is open for business and there are lots

:01:05.:01:07.

of fantastic shops here. This has been a controversial scheme

:01:08.:01:10.

from the start when protests took place to keep the cobbles. It lead

:01:11.:01:14.

to a compromise being made by the council but it also meant the work

:01:15.:01:21.

would take a further ten weeks. I think always the worry is that you

:01:22.:01:24.

think, have people find somewhere else to go in the meantime? `` have

:01:25.:01:30.

people found somewhere else to go? And that we don't know until it has

:01:31.:01:34.

all cleared up and people start to come back. The work was planned

:01:35.:01:37.

extremely carefully. We carried out work on footpaths in the first

:01:38.:01:40.

instance so we maintained access to every business in Beverley at all

:01:41.:01:44.

times. The key message for me is, Beverley is open for business. There

:01:45.:01:47.

are other car parks just off the Market Square, off Lairgate, off New

:01:48.:01:50.

Watergate, all the businesses are open and have been open throughout

:01:51.:01:54.

this period of work. It has been awkward to get around but it has

:01:55.:01:58.

been worth it in the end, I think. It looks really good. We thought the

:01:59.:02:02.

disabled parking was at that end but now you can't drive through, you

:02:03.:02:05.

have to come out and come round. It will be safer for the pedestrians,

:02:06.:02:09.

I'd imagine, but a bit confusing for the cars. You just can't get parked.

:02:10.:02:13.

They have made a whole mess of the place. I think something had to be

:02:14.:02:17.

done. Whether we have got best value for money...

:02:18.:02:19.

This jewellery store has also seen a drop in trade, but it's hoping the

:02:20.:02:23.

works will benefit them in the long`term. It's cost ?2.6m ` traders

:02:24.:02:26.

here are counting down the days to find out if it's enough to entice

:02:27.:02:30.

shoppers back to this town. Caroline Bilton, BBC Look North, Beverley.

:02:31.:02:33.

A credit union which offers loans has secured ?200,000 to expand its

:02:34.:02:36.

services in Grimsby. Supporters of the project say it's essential to

:02:37.:02:39.

stop people signing up for high`interest loans. Seven new jobs

:02:40.:02:42.

at the union are being created with the money. With the welfare reforms

:02:43.:02:50.

that have been happening over the last two or three years, a lot of

:02:51.:02:54.

people are in a lot of need and therefore, as the council, we have

:02:55.:02:59.

invested a lot of money in order to bring the credit union into the

:03:00.:03:01.

21st`century, fit for purpose. Onto Rugby League, and both Hull

:03:02.:03:05.

teams have been in action. It was an afternoon to forget for Hull FC as

:03:06.:03:09.

they lost 7`0 to Widnes. But it was better news for Hull Kingston

:03:10.:03:14.

Rovers. They beat Bradford 16`0. In football, Hull City are eight points

:03:15.:03:17.

above the Premier League relegation places after beating West Brom 2`0.

:03:18.:03:20.

And in League Two, Scunthorpe United are in second after another narrow

:03:21.:03:24.

win. Simon Spark has the details. Shane Long was the centre of

:03:25.:03:28.

attention as the team he left in January were the visitors to the KC

:03:29.:03:32.

Stadium, and his was a pivotal role as Hull eased their relegation

:03:33.:03:37.

concerns. The Irishman went down in the area to earn a penalty that Ben

:03:38.:03:40.

Foster saved from Nikica Jelavic, before Liam Rosenior headed in for

:03:41.:03:46.

his first goal since October 2009. Six minutes later, Long then added

:03:47.:03:49.

the second, after West Brom had failed to clear a corner. The second

:03:50.:03:56.

half was less eventful, with Long's strike against the post from 20

:03:57.:03:59.

yards the highlight for the home team, but Steve Bruce had targeted

:04:00.:04:02.

ten wins for survival this season, and the Tigers now have nine.

:04:03.:04:09.

Overall, we have managed to take the points off the teams that really are

:04:10.:04:13.

going to be around us. Today was that day. We have not played well on

:04:14.:04:18.

the day, but we have done enough, we have done enough with our resilience

:04:19.:04:22.

and attitude to get a result which obviously is very important at this

:04:23.:04:24.

stage. In League Two, Paddy Madden's goal

:04:25.:04:27.

was enough to beat Burton and move Scunthorpe United into second. The

:04:28.:04:31.

Iron had not managed a shot on target until Madden's second`half

:04:32.:04:34.

volley, and despite having a penalty saved, they stretched their club

:04:35.:04:35.

record unbeaten run to 22 games. Shire horses from across Europe have

:04:36.:04:49.

been in Grantham this weekend. The Shire Horse Society's National Show

:04:50.:04:52.

is the world's largest gathering of the breed. Spectators have come from

:04:53.:04:56.

as far afield as Australia and the USA for the event which showcases

:04:57.:04:59.

the Society's work protecting the endangered breed. We have got people

:05:00.:05:06.

here from America, Germany, Sweden, France, Austria, Switzerland.

:05:07.:05:09.

England is the home of the shire horse. A lot of people come from

:05:10.:05:16.

overseas where there are quite big shire horse populations because they

:05:17.:05:20.

want to see the best. And this is where the best is, this show.

:05:21.:05:24.

Let's get the weather now, with Kay Crewdson.

:05:25.:05:31.

Hello. Good evening. A fair few showers that will continue but they

:05:32.:05:34.

will fizzle out as we had overnight. All parts dry. The breeze will stay

:05:35.:05:40.

fairly light and we will have predominantly clear skies. A frost

:05:41.:05:42.

forming overnight tonight, temperatures dropping to below

:05:43.:05:46.

freezing. A cold and frosty start tomorrow morning, watch out for ice

:05:47.:05:50.

where we have had showers, but it is going to be a fine start, dry and

:05:51.:05:53.

bright, plenty of sunshine through the day tomorrow. The breeze

:05:54.:05:56.

freshens from the south, temperatures rise to around 10

:05:57.:05:57.

degrees. temperatures rise to

:05:58.:05:58.

Good night. Hello. Following today's showers,

:05:59.:06:13.

tonight is going to be much colder. Clear skies, light winds, a recipe

:06:14.:06:18.

for a widespread frost. Sharp showers for the next couple of

:06:19.:06:21.

hours. From East Yorkshire
