Hello from BBC Look North. Police are questioning a man and a woman

:00:11.:00:17.

after a newborn baby was fotnd dead in Hull. The body of the girl was

:00:18.:00:21.

found last night. Officers were called to East Hull

:00:22.:00:24.

after the baby girl was found yesterday evening alongside this

:00:25.:00:27.

path in the city. The area was sealed off for many hours as police

:00:28.:00:33.

investigated. Humberside Police say it was a member of the publhc who

:00:34.:00:37.

found a baby's body near thhs cycle path and close to Rockford @venue

:00:38.:00:43.

last night just after seven o'clock. You can tell by the police tape

:00:44.:00:47.

that's here today that therd was a very large area cordoned off so that

:00:48.:00:50.

police could come in and recover the body and also start their initial

:00:51.:00:55.

enquiries. Two people have been arrested. A man and a woman.

:00:56.:00:59.

Tonight, they remain in polhce custody.

:01:00.:01:06.

A second person has been arrested in connection with the murder of a

:01:07.:01:10.

Chinese student in Lincoln. The body of Mingzi Yang, who was 29 `nd from

:01:11.:01:15.

China, was discovered in a house on Sincil Bank on Tuesday. A m`n was

:01:16.:01:18.

arrested and released on bahl earlier this week.

:01:19.:01:21.

Labour MPs in East Yorkshird and Lincolnshire are calling for tougher

:01:22.:01:24.

fines for companies which rdfuse to pay the national minimum wage. It

:01:25.:01:27.

follows the Employment Minister s call for farmers to employ lore

:01:28.:01:30.

British`born workers, rather than migrants. Hull MP Karl Turndr claims

:01:31.:01:35.

some firms are taking advantage of overseas workers. I think one of the

:01:36.:01:41.

reasons people employ peopld from overseas, frankly, is because they

:01:42.:01:44.

get away with paying them the national minimum wage. That's the

:01:45.:01:50.

reality. And this idea that British workers are less able to put in a

:01:51.:01:54.

hard day's grafting than solebody from overseas is just nonsense,

:01:55.:01:59.

frankly. Health workers in Scunthorpd are

:02:00.:02:02.

worried new mums still feel uncomfortable about breast`feeding

:02:03.:02:07.

in public. They say it's ond of the reasons breast`feeding rates in

:02:08.:02:09.

North Lincolnshire are below the national average. Gemma Dawson

:02:10.:02:13.

reports. New mums are often told abott the

:02:14.:02:16.

benefits of breast`feeding their babies. But some can feel

:02:17.:02:21.

uncomfortable doing this in public. You get a few funny looks, which

:02:22.:02:29.

always make you a little bit unsure. You do look round first and think,

:02:30.:02:33.

is it OK to feed? Will anyone say anything? Last year, we told you

:02:34.:02:37.

about the young mum asked to breast` feed her baby in a train tohlet And

:02:38.:02:41.

here in Scunthorpe, health workers are worried women still feel a

:02:42.:02:44.

stigma around feeding in front of people. There was an Ofsted for one

:02:45.:02:48.

of the children's centres and it said, despite work that's bding

:02:49.:02:50.

done, breast` feeding rates remain stubbornly low. Therefore, we looked

:02:51.:02:55.

at some of the reasons behind that. And it was that some mums dhd not

:02:56.:02:59.

want to breast`feed in publhc, because of stigma or confiddnce

:03:00.:03:02.

In North Lincolnshire, 63% of babies are breast`fed from birth. Compared

:03:03.:03:09.

with nearly 74% nationally. But by the time they are six to eight weeks

:03:10.:03:13.

old, just a third of babies in North Lincolnshire are still recehving

:03:14.:03:16.

breast milk. Compared to ne`rly half across England.

:03:17.:03:19.

So now, a new project is encouraging mums to breast`feed together. I

:03:20.:03:24.

caught up with this group at The Pods leisure centre. For thd first

:03:25.:03:28.

five weeks, I was just stuck at home every day. And then, the group was

:03:29.:03:32.

the first place I actually fed in public. The group really helped me

:03:33.:03:36.

to sort of know how to do it sort of discreetly. And that's the thing I

:03:37.:03:40.

was worried about most, I think Mums really do need the confidence

:03:41.:03:43.

to go out in public and feed comfortably. And this group are

:03:44.:03:48.

inspiring mums to do just that. These women now hope other new mums

:03:49.:03:50.

will join them. Hull FC are tenth in the Super

:03:51.:03:58.

League after a narrow loss to Catalan Dragons. The Black `nd

:03:59.:04:01.

Whites lost 20 points to 16 in France yesterday afternoon.

:04:02.:04:06.

Now for the weather. Hello there, good evening. Things

:04:07.:04:10.

going downhill this week, btt very slowly. Increasing risk of showers

:04:11.:04:14.

later on in the week. Out there at the moment, the odd light shower.

:04:15.:04:18.

But generally a fine end to the day with some sunshine. The clotd will

:04:19.:04:21.

remain broken overnight and temperatures in towns and chties

:04:22.:04:25.

falling back to 13 or 14 degrees. 13 is 55 Fahrenheit. That little bit

:04:26.:04:29.

cooler out in the countryside. So, into tomorrow, it will for the

:04:30.:04:33.

bulk of the day be largely dry and bright once again. It will feel warm

:04:34.:04:37.

too, with broken cloud and sunny spells. Temperatures getting up into

:04:38.:04:41.

the early 20s once again. Around 21 degrees the high, which is 70

:04:42.:04:44.

Fahrenheit. Into tomorrow evening, the increased risk of showers. So

:04:45.:04:48.

the first half of next week looks largely settled and dry. Just the

:04:49.:04:51.

odd shower. Increasing risk of showers and getting cooler by

:04:52.:04:56.

Thursday onwards. We'll be back later tonight at

:04:57.:05:00.

10:20pm for more of the day's news. Joiners then if you can. Goodbye for

:05:01.:05:09.

Good evening. After the weekend that has made many of us in warm

:05:10.:05:17.

sunshine, prospects are set fair for the beginning of the new week.

:05:18.:05:23.

Tomorrow we will see more sunny spells across the British Isles and
