Good evening. A horse drive which was banned by the courts has gone
ahead in Hull. Around 25 horses and carts took part. Hull City Council
had secured an injunction banning the event from obstructing the
highway. Police say although it went ahead, it caused minimal disruption
as Tolu Adeoye reports. Galloping along the streets of Hull
in spite of an injunction trying to ban the drive from the city's roads.
It's a long`standing tradition. And, apart from causing some traffic
delays, today's drive passed through without major disruption. Compared
to previous years, where we have had significantly more numbers, there
has been far less of a turnout this year. In terms of the event passing,
it's gone smoothly with that event so far. And this is what the city
council was trying to avoid ` scenes of chaos back in 2012 which lead to
disruption for local residents and businesses. Even though Hull City
Council had an injunction against today's drive, police had
intelligence that would still go ahead, so 35 officers have been on
hand to make sure it passes through safely. It's been a good day. A
really good day. Apart from the rain! Everyone is enjoying it and
getting on with it and that, so it's all right. It's part of tradition
around here come I think. They train the horses and it's nice to see it.
Crucially, the police say no public highways were blocked during today's
drive, with horses and carts congregating at public houses
between stops. So they say no action was taken against those involved on
this occasion. A service of remembrance has been
held to mark the 29th anniversary of the Bradford Stadium fire, in which
two football fans from Lincolnshire were among the 56 supporters who
died. Fire engulfed the main stand at Bradford City's Valley Parade as
the home team played Lincoln City in 1985. This morning, players, fans
and civic dignitaries held a minute's silence to remember the
events. Part of Grimsby town centre has been
closed again today as the council rips up newly`laid paving to carry
out repair work. The so`called "shared space" was finished in
December but paving on Bethlehem Street has been damaged by bad
weather and so it's having to be re`laid.
Listen carefully and you can hear as well as see the problem on one of
Grimsby's newest roads. This paving on Bethlehem Street was only
completed in December, but already it's failing and, in places, has had
to be patched. Today, work has started to dig it all up again. They
have been out here every single day since they supposedly finished it.
They were repairing it, changing it. They were out here yesterday,
digging up and replacing it. It is just continual. The whole thing is
rubbish. So I don't think it will last. When they do it again, I don't
think it will last again. They should have tarmacked it, really.
This is a shared space ` it encourages bikes, pedestrians and
cars to negotiate the area together. The council denies the fault with it
is in its construction. The work has been done right, it has been closely
supervised. The problem has been with the weather conditions. I don't
think we could have reasonably expected the huge amount of rain
that we had literally at the back end of last year and that is what
being the largest contributory factor to this. So the work has
started to put it right, with more disruption. It'll need to be fully
investigated, re`laid and the road closed off. And that's been worrying
businesses like this hairdressers. We have a lot of elderly people
coming in taxis, they won't be able to be dropped off. There are no
buses. So I think next week, yes, it will really affect business. But
there won't be any change to the layout despite continued concern
over its overall safety. The work is hoped to be completed by Thursday.
Firefighters are still working a recycling centre Scunthorpe after a
fire at the site last week. At one stage, 40 firefighters were needed
to control the fire which took hold in thousands of tonnes of waste
plastic on Wednesday. Officers say there will be a presence at the site
until they are confident there is no further risk.
It was a disappointing result for Tigers fans, beaten 2`0 at home by
Everton in their last Premier League game of the season. But there were
applause and cheers after the final whistle as Steve Bruce and his squad
came back onto the pitch to say thank you to the fans for their
support this season. The Tigers finished 16th overall and now have
to prepare for next weekend's FA Cup final. If we're being honest, we
have been safe for weeks, we've never been in any relegation
trouble. It's been very difficult the last month or so because
everyone has been talking about or thinking about the FA Cup final, so
thankfully this season has finished. We have finished where we finished
and we have got an FA Cup final to look forward to, thankfully.
Let's get a look at the weather now. Here's Jennifer Bartram with the
forecast. Good evening. Some further days of
unsettled weather to come. Through tonight, we continue to see the
showers moving in but they will become lighter and less frequent.
Any shots you have become more slow`moving. Some hail and funding
places. Some spells of sunshine between the showers. Temperatures
tomorrow up to around 12 or 13 degrees. As we go to the next few
days, keep the unsettled theme but then high pressure starts to build
so by Wednesday and Thursday, it is find with highs of 16.
That's all from Look North. We're back at 10:15pm tonight, straight
after the national news. Bye for now.
Good evening. We have still got some very heavy showers out there. For
ors we are finishing the day on a more positive note. Clearer skies to
the south indicating sunshine but the cloud still streaming in further
north. Tomorrow's forecast brings a similar mixture, sunshine and
showers although the winds will start to be lighter. That process
begins through the night tonight. A shattering of showers still
possible. Clearer skies across northern Scotland probably our
lowest temperatures here. For many temperatures will begin Monday
morning at around 8 or 9 degrees already with a few showers
morning at around 8 or 9 degrees think be drier spells in between, as
morning at around 8 or 9 degrees with the nature of showers,
morning at around 8 or 9 degrees not everywhere all of the time.
Cloudy with brighter spells mixed in across parts of northern England and
southern Scotland already with the potential of one or two to be heavy.
On northern Scotland on balance through the day on Monday while
there could be a few showers, a slight improvement here. But they
