Hello, welcome to Look North. The first marriage in Hull between a
couple of the same sex has been held this afternoon, after a change in
the law came into force at lidnight. Sammy Spence and Jenna Middleton
planned their wedding to cohncide with the new law, a move whhch has
already been repeated by hundreds of couples across England and Wales.
Jill Archbold reports. Every wedding needs a photographer `
but there were a few extra `t this one in Hull. Now declare th`t you
are a wife and wife. Sammy Spence and Jenna Middleton became the first
same sex couple to marry legally in the city ` and were both left lost
for words... You can't put ht in words. Fantastic. It finallx
happens. Five years. That's it really. It's five years to the day
since the pair started their relationship ` and change in law
meant their plans for a civ`l partnership could become a wedding `
which they would share with hundreds of same sex couples across the
country. Even everywhere ard several partners, it wouldn't have lattered
but now it is official, it hs one of the best feelings. We never really
thought it would happen. Falily and friends could turn up, everxbody.
Obviously it was going to bd civil partners and men we found ott it was
going to be managed, we still can't believe that ourselves. It's
unlikely confetti will be thrown for gay couples outside religiots
settings ` no organisations in East Yorkshire or Lincolnshire h`ve
applied to hold ceremonies, but staff at the Guildhall were proud to
host their first. The coupld today were really happy, they are very
much in love and it was nicd to be part of their day and do thd
official duties for them. And from the doors of one of the
city's most historic building ` the couple whose now shared namd has
made history in Hull. Firefighters have held a protest
march and rally in Hull over a cut of more than ?2 million frol the
service. East Hull Fire Station will lose one fire engine and each fire
engine will have four firefhghters, instead of five. The chief fire
officer says the public will kept safe, but the Fire Brigades Union
says the changes are risky. Taking that individual of the applhance,
there are few circumstances which will allow a firefighter to enter a
burning building. We will sde five engines having to wait for `nother
pump to come and attend so xou see the significance of losing the pump
and dropping from five to four across the city.
One of the darkest days for Lincolnshire bomber crews in World
War Two is being marked. Tolorrow is the seventieth anniversary of the
Nuremberg raids in which Brhtain lost 94 planes and 537 airmdn. 9

a remembrance event is being held at the East Kirkby aviation centre
which was set up by the sons of one of the men who died that night, in
memory of their father. A group of dancers and actors
performed in Hull this mornhng to promote the start of the wedk`long
Hull and East Yorkshire Festival of Tourism. They did three seaside
themed dances in city centrd locations in a style known `s
flash`mob ` where members of the public are taken by surprisd by an
apparently impromptu perforlance. Now for the football.
A draw for Scunthorpe United, says their manager, Russ Wilcox, breaks a
