Hello and welcome to Look North. Beverley's Saturday Market has been
re`launched today after a ?2.5 million project to upgrade the
historic site. The East Riding of Yorkshire Council says the
regeneration has made the site more accessible. But it dropped its
original plan to remove all the old stone cobbles or setts from the
market place after local opposition. Sarah Walton reports.
Despite the showery weather there were plenty of people out to see the
new look Saturday Market, with a new ground surface and what the council
described as a less cluttered appearance.
But nearly a year and a half ago it was a different scene, with protests
against the original plans which involved removing the old cobbles,
known as setts. A compromise was reached ` some
cobbles remained. But the council still carried out work to improve
drainage, upgrade the street lighting and put in a proper power
supply for the market. But there are mixed views on the
change. It is lovely. They have made a good
job of it. There are some bits that we are not sure of. People were
complaining that there was no to cross the road. We are very pleased
that that is finished. It has made a big improvement.
And the council says the work has been worthwhile. A number of people
were commenting on the Brewer Street of Revere. We want to the team this
as an area of commerce. `` were commenting on the bad state of
repair. Traders have been coming here for
centuries. It's now hoped no more work will be needed here for many
years to come. An injunction banning a planned
Horse Drive tomorrow has been granted by Hull County Court.
The police and city council say the event has caused disruption in the
past. They're urging horse owners and riders not to break the order
banning them from the city's roads. Hull Kingston Rovers are taking on
Salford in the Superleague tonight. The match started a few minutes ago.
There is currently no score. Speaking before kick off coach Craig
Sandercock told Look North that they're determined to put their
recent defeat to Widnes behind them ` but he says Salford will put up a
good fight in Lancashire this evening. Salford have got some good
attacking players. We will treat every game with the at most
respects. We will hopefully put in a decent performance.
There's commentary of the game on all frequencies on BBC Radio
Humberside. And of course you'll be able to see the action in the
Superleague show on Monday night at 11.25 on BBC One.
Hull City take on Everton in their final Premier League match of the
season tomorrow. The manager Steve Bruce says recent
performances, like this defeat to Manchester United, have been
affected by the prospect of meeting Arsenal in the FA cup final next
week. But he says a win at home tomorrow will be the icing on the
cake of a season the Tigers fans can be proud of.
Overall we are satisfied with what we have done. There are certain
results but you can remember. Passengers on a Hull Trains service
will get the chance to see a special performance of poet Philip Larkin's
Whitsun Weddings. 50 years after it was written, the
poem, which describes a journey from Hull to London, will be performed on
both a train and the platforms at Hull Paragon station next month.
Passengers will also hear poetry readings by actor Bill Nighy.
Police are warning of standing water on roads across the region. Here is
the weather. The unsettled feel continues. Some
of the showers will be heavy. A fairly mild night. As we go into
Sunday we continue to see some showers.
That is all for now. We are back tomorrow evening. Goodbye.
Good evening. We have seen plenty of showers scattered across the country
today. There will be drier and brighter spells in between. Low
pressure is sitting across the country, with some tightly packed
isobars to the south. That indicates some strong winds. They will
continue throughout the night, going up to gale force at times. The main
focus of the wettest weather across parts of West Wales is this rain. It
will not be a particularly cold start to Sunday. Showers, not
everywhere, some of us will see drier weather weather window of
sunshine around, but be prepared for those showers if you're stepping out
