An estimated 70,000 people visited the RAF Waddington Airshow today.
It was a soggy start but spdctators came prepared. And after a slight
delay because of the weather, the show got underway. It is thd first
time I have been to it and H am very impressed. I enjoy the displays
Week come every year. The khds love it. It has been really exciting But
this could be the last area show here at RAF Waddington. Earlier this
week organisers announced there will be no show here next year bdcause of
work to rebuild the runway. It is disappointing news for the traders.
It is sad because people love it. We have to replace this show whth
something equal to it. I understand they have to do the work on the
runway. It is such a shame ht won't be on next year. The show is already
a sell`out this year. We expected around 70,000. That seems to be the
case. We have been tremendotsly well supported. Today's highlights
included the Red Arrows and the patroller Asper. It is diffdrent
because it is with five helhcopters. It is very dynamic. Tomorrow,
visitors can expect similar sites. Around 150 anti`fracking protestors
marched through Beverley today. Campaigners claim
the controversial gas extraction method will pollute water stpplies.
It comes as protestors have set up camp outside oil drilling shtes
in Walkington and West Newton. The site owner, Rathlin Energy,
says it has no plans to frack in the area.
Many of those marching todax were residents from Beverley
and nearby villages like Walkington, Cherry Burton,
North Newbald and South Cavd. People that don't know about
fracking need to know. Some people are more focused on the fact they
will not be able to get homd insurance. The environmental risks
are huge. Water contaminated. Air pollution, noise pollution.
North Newbald and South Cavd. Residents
in Cherry Burton held a meeting last night to discuss fracking.
We have the most fantastic water in Cherry Burton and Yorkshire. The
threat to the water, I have nightmares.
night to discuss fracking. Rathlin Energy own the sites
at Crawberry Hill near Walkhngton and West Newton,
where protestors are camping. The company has repeatedly said it

But these residents say they?re not reassured.
The start of the Tour De Fr`nce which began got underway thhs
morning, has been one of thd biggest days in Yorkshire's history,
according to the event organisers. Lincolnshire's Red Arrows flew over

of spectators lined the route. Race organisers say a Yorkshire wide
cycling race through the cotnty could become an annual event.
Super League now, and Hull FC coach Lee Radford says
he's still optimistic of re`ching the playoffs in site of a 24`18
defeat by Warrington last nhght Callum Lancaster scored
a hat trick of tries in the match, but it wasn't enough for
the home side to take the points. The defeat means the black
and whites stay 10th in the Super League.
Hull Keira will play their first match under Chris Chester tomorrow.
`` Hull Kingston Rovers. Let's get a look
at the weather now ` here's Kay Crewdson with the forec`st.
Good evening. As we head through this evening plenty of sunshine
Some clothes spilling in two southern spots. The risk of some
isolated showers. Across East Yorkshire, mostly dry. Tempdratures
down to 11 degrees. For linking sure it will be a cloudy start. @ few
