politician because I started by shouting at the television sitting
on my city. My family said if you do not do something soon you will drive
us crackers. Labour doubled their number of seats
in Yorkshire and the Humber, from one to two ` with the Conservatives
left with just one MEP. In the East Midlands, UKIP and the
Conservatives won two seats each and Labour took one.
But the Liberal Democrats were wiped out across our area. The main
casualty was Lincoln`based Bill Newton`Dunn, who'd been a

Conservatives are third with 19%, one seat. In the East Midlands
region, covering Lincolnshire, UKIP topped the poll with two seats,
conceptus second with two seats and Labour on 25% with one seat.

A 16`year`old from East Yorkshire has beaten hundreds of hopefuls to
earn a place at the famous English National Ballet School.
Conor Walmsley has only been dancing for four years and his teacher
in Hedon says it's a remarkable achievement.
Confident, versatile, and able to push boundaries ` these are the
things the English National Ballet School look for in a dancer ` and it
seems Conor acquired them after just a short period of time.
I have been dancing for four years and it is a massive part of my
life. I do about 20 hours per week. It is definitely what I like to do
the most. The English National Ballet School
is world renowned ` and they only take on a handful of boys from the
UK every year. His teacher says it a He has good natural ability with a
good physique and ability in Ballet. He has had to learn a lot in a short
period of time to develop the skills required to get to this level.
He joins a host of male dancers from this area who've achieved success.
Like Liam Mower from Hull who won a Laurence Olivier award for his role
in the West End musical Billy Elliot. Ballroom star Kevin Clifton
from Grimsby who recently stared alongside Susanna Reid in Strictly
Come Dancing. And Ashley Dixon ` also from Hull ` who's a member of
We are all happy for him. We would be for everyone because we are all
close to each other. I was so proud of him because he is so determined
to achieve what he wants. I was thrilled.
But what is the 16`year`old most nervous about `
I am excited to dance with other boys my age but I also want to learn
some weight skills. Conor hopes that if he carries on

away. Rainbow push in from the south`east later. Heavy spells
towards dawn. Temperatures are around ten or 11 degrees. We do have
a weather warning. A lot of rain for Tuesday and Wednesday. It won't rain
all day but when it does it could be heavy. A better chance of dry spells
later in the day. It will be cool and cloudy. Another wet day to come
on Wednesday, rain like an Apache on Thursday. Drier air on Friday.
That's all from us. Goodbye.
