the evening on the BBC News Channel. We are back at

:00:00.:00:10.

Good evening. A horse drive which was banned by the courts has gone

:00:11.:00:15.

ahead in Hull. Around 25 horses and carts took part. Hull City Council

:00:16.:00:18.

had secured an injunction banning the event from obstructing the

:00:19.:00:22.

highway. Police say although it went ahead, it caused minimal disruption

:00:23.:00:28.

as Tolu Adeoye reports. Galloping along the streets of Hull

:00:29.:00:32.

in spite of an injunction trying to ban the drive from the city's roads.

:00:33.:00:35.

It's a long`standing tradition. And, apart from causing some traffic

:00:36.:00:38.

delays, today's drive passed through without major disruption. Compared

:00:39.:00:44.

to previous years, where we have had significantly more numbers, there

:00:45.:00:47.

has been far less of a turnout this year. In terms of the event passing,

:00:48.:00:51.

it's gone smoothly with that event so far. And this is what the city

:00:52.:00:57.

council was trying to avoid ` scenes of chaos back in 2012 which lead to

:00:58.:01:00.

disruption for local residents and businesses. Even though Hull City

:01:01.:01:05.

Council had an injunction against today's drive, police had

:01:06.:01:07.

intelligence that would still go ahead, so 35 officers have been on

:01:08.:01:11.

hand to make sure it passes through safely. It's been a good day. A

:01:12.:01:20.

really good day. Apart from the rain! Everyone is enjoying it and

:01:21.:01:25.

getting on with it and that, so it's all right. It's part of tradition

:01:26.:01:30.

around here come I think. They train the horses and it's nice to see it.

:01:31.:01:35.

Crucially, the police say no public highways were blocked during today's

:01:36.:01:38.

drive, with horses and carts congregating at public houses

:01:39.:01:43.

between stops. So they say no action was taken against those involved on

:01:44.:01:50.

this occasion. A service of remembrance has been

:01:51.:01:54.

held to mark the 29th anniversary of the Bradford Stadium fire, in which

:01:55.:01:57.

two football fans from Lincolnshire were among the 56 supporters who

:01:58.:02:01.

died. Fire engulfed the main stand at Bradford City's Valley Parade as

:02:02.:02:05.

the home team played Lincoln City in 1985. This morning, players, fans

:02:06.:02:08.

and civic dignitaries held a minute's silence to remember the

:02:09.:02:12.

events. Part of Grimsby town centre has been

:02:13.:02:16.

closed again today as the council rips up newly`laid paving to carry

:02:17.:02:20.

out repair work. The so`called "shared space" was finished in

:02:21.:02:23.

December but paving on Bethlehem Street has been damaged by bad

:02:24.:02:26.

weather and so it's having to be re`laid.

:02:27.:02:31.

Listen carefully and you can hear as well as see the problem on one of

:02:32.:02:37.

Grimsby's newest roads. This paving on Bethlehem Street was only

:02:38.:02:39.

completed in December, but already it's failing and, in places, has had

:02:40.:02:46.

to be patched. Today, work has started to dig it all up again. They

:02:47.:02:50.

have been out here every single day since they supposedly finished it.

:02:51.:02:54.

They were repairing it, changing it. They were out here yesterday,

:02:55.:02:58.

digging up and replacing it. It is just continual. The whole thing is

:02:59.:03:02.

rubbish. So I don't think it will last. When they do it again, I don't

:03:03.:03:07.

think it will last again. They should have tarmacked it, really.

:03:08.:03:10.

This is a shared space ` it encourages bikes, pedestrians and

:03:11.:03:14.

cars to negotiate the area together. The council denies the fault with it

:03:15.:03:19.

is in its construction. The work has been done right, it has been closely

:03:20.:03:22.

supervised. The problem has been with the weather conditions. I don't

:03:23.:03:25.

think we could have reasonably expected the huge amount of rain

:03:26.:03:29.

that we had literally at the back end of last year and that is what

:03:30.:03:32.

being the largest contributory factor to this. So the work has

:03:33.:03:36.

started to put it right, with more disruption. It'll need to be fully

:03:37.:03:39.

investigated, re`laid and the road closed off. And that's been worrying

:03:40.:03:44.

businesses like this hairdressers. We have a lot of elderly people

:03:45.:03:47.

coming in taxis, they won't be able to be dropped off. There are no

:03:48.:03:56.

buses. So I think next week, yes, it will really affect business. But

:03:57.:04:00.

there won't be any change to the layout despite continued concern

:04:01.:04:05.

over its overall safety. The work is hoped to be completed by Thursday.

:04:06.:04:09.

Firefighters are still working a recycling centre Scunthorpe after a

:04:10.:04:13.

fire at the site last week. At one stage, 40 firefighters were needed

:04:14.:04:17.

to control the fire which took hold in thousands of tonnes of waste

:04:18.:04:21.

plastic on Wednesday. Officers say there will be a presence at the site

:04:22.:04:25.

until they are confident there is no further risk.

:04:26.:04:29.

It was a disappointing result for Tigers fans, beaten 2`0 at home by

:04:30.:04:33.

Everton in their last Premier League game of the season. But there were

:04:34.:04:38.

applause and cheers after the final whistle as Steve Bruce and his squad

:04:39.:04:42.

came back onto the pitch to say thank you to the fans for their

:04:43.:04:45.

support this season. The Tigers finished 16th overall and now have

:04:46.:04:49.

to prepare for next weekend's FA Cup final. If we're being honest, we

:04:50.:04:52.

have been safe for weeks, we've never been in any relegation

:04:53.:04:56.

trouble. It's been very difficult the last month or so because

:04:57.:04:59.

everyone has been talking about or thinking about the FA Cup final, so

:05:00.:05:02.

thankfully this season has finished. We have finished where we finished

:05:03.:05:06.

and we have got an FA Cup final to look forward to, thankfully.

:05:07.:05:10.

Let's get a look at the weather now. Here's Jennifer Bartram with the

:05:11.:05:12.

forecast. Good evening. Some further days of

:05:13.:05:16.

unsettled weather to come. Through tonight, we continue to see the

:05:17.:05:19.

showers moving in but they will become lighter and less frequent.

:05:20.:05:36.

Any shots you have become more slow`moving. Some hail and funding

:05:37.:05:39.

places. Some spells of sunshine between the showers. Temperatures

:05:40.:05:43.

tomorrow up to around 12 or 13 degrees. As we go to the next few

:05:44.:05:49.

days, keep the unsettled theme but then high pressure starts to build

:05:50.:05:52.

so by Wednesday and Thursday, it is find with highs of 16.

:05:53.:05:57.

That's all from Look North. We're back at 10:15pm tonight, straight

:05:58.:06:00.

after the national news. Bye for now.

:06:01.:06:06.

Good evening. We have still got some very heavy showers out there. For

:06:07.:06:13.

ors we are finishing the day on a more positive note. Clearer skies to

:06:14.:06:17.

the south indicating sunshine but the cloud still streaming in further

:06:18.:06:23.

north. Tomorrow's forecast brings a similar mixture, sunshine and

:06:24.:06:25.

showers although the winds will start to be lighter. That process

:06:26.:06:29.

begins through the night tonight. A shattering of showers still

:06:30.:06:32.

possible. Clearer skies across northern Scotland probably our

:06:33.:06:35.

lowest temperatures here. For many temperatures will begin Monday

:06:36.:06:40.

morning at around 8 or 9 degrees already with a few showers

:06:41.:06:44.

morning at around 8 or 9 degrees think be drier spells in between, as

:06:45.:06:46.

morning at around 8 or 9 degrees with the nature of showers,

:06:47.:06:47.

morning at around 8 or 9 degrees not everywhere all of the time.

:06:48.:06:51.

Cloudy with brighter spells mixed in across parts of northern England and

:06:52.:06:55.

southern Scotland already with the potential of one or two to be heavy.

:06:56.:06:58.

On northern Scotland on balance through the day on Monday while

:06:59.:07:02.

there could be a few showers, a slight improvement here. But they

:07:03.:07:03.

will start

:07:04.:07:05.
