Good evening. Hundreds of people have gathered in Lincoln to remember
a teenager killed in a car crash last week. Friends and family of
Matty Ellis met outside the city's cathedral this lunchtime. The
16`year`old died after a collision on the A11`04 near Alford on Friday.
Hundreds of teenagers gathered outside Lincoln Cathedral, many
clutching balloons, all here to remember their friend Matty Ellis.
He was amazing. He was one of the best football players I knew. He was
a truly genuine guy. He would talk to anybody, he was so easy to get to
know as a person. He was the nicest person you could ever meet. The
16`year`old died when two cars and a van collided here on the A11`04 near
Alford. A 70`year`old woman was also killed in the crash on Good Friday
and six people seriously injured. The investigation is alive
investigation, complex... Many lines of enquiry that we are actively
pursuing. I'm particularly keen to speak to anybody who witnessed the
collision itself. Back in Lincoln this lunchtime balloons filled the
sky, some with messages for Matty, then silence and hugs as friends and
family said their goodbyes. Two men have been arrested after a man was
found dead at his home in Lincoln. Police were called to a house in
Hermit Street late last night where they found the body of a 25`year`old
man. The death is being dealt with as unexplained and the house is
being searched A man from Lincolnshire has died after a bus
fell into a ravine in Malaysia. 32`year`old Harry Woolhouse from
Market Deeping was one of a number of tourists on the double`decker
which was taking them from Redang Island to Singapore. The driver says
he lost control of the vehicle in heavy rain near Felda Chini.
Hoteliers and guest house owners say they've seen a rise in the number of
people booking to stay in the region compared to the same time last year.
Tourism is worth more than ?500 million pounds to the east coast
economy. In Skegness, hotel owners hoping for a busy summer season.
They say that up on last year. The season so far
has been very good. I feel it is down partly to the weather, it was
like Siberia last year. And I feel economic factor is starting to
filter to through to Skegness. Hopefully we will have a good season
right down the coast this year. Others who need tourists for their
business, agree. This is our second season, so last year was our first
and it wasn't very good to start with. Since then though, it has been
great. And if you remains positive and that the good
business carries on in the coming months.
City beat Wrexham by the same score. Danny Rowe scored for them just
after half an hour. In Rugby League, it was a good day for Hull FC at the
KC Stadium. They beat London Broncos 40 points to four. City rivals Hull
Kingston Rovers are in France tonight taking on the Catalan
Dragons. The result is now 26 to 24 to the Catalans. Time for a look at
the weather now, with Paul Hudson. Most of us had lovely Bank Holiday
but things are now going downhill. We have patchy outbreaks of rain
already across some parts of our region and we look set to have a
cloudy night with further showery outbreaks of rain, a little misty
over the tops of the Wolds with temperatures at eight or nine
degrees. Tuesday morning, a cloudy and wet one for many, with some of
the rain quite heavy, but it will move away northwards through the
morning. The afternoon should see an improvement towards drier, brighter
conditions, but there will always be the risk of one or two showers.
Temperatures not too bad, up to 14 Celsius in Lincoln, that is 57
Fahrenheit. Wednesday looking OK, with a dry bright morning, just the
risk of a little patchy light rain later in the day.That's all from me
for the time being, but I'll be back with the late news just before
10.15pm. Bye for now.
