because it believes the changes will bring in new business.

central government has cut from our day`to`day services.

city is looking tired. But do people living here feel that that will be

The council are going to spend 12 within pounds. To do this? We need


to do so much to bring tourism in. And I think this will.

buildings in the city and these lands, like a gold frame and a


beautiful picture, will bring out the beauty of the painting which is

the second time within seven years. Within 30 minutes


of the downpour water was running through the doors of at least four


homes in this neighbourhood. In a matter

recorded the moment that The local school was also flooded,


as were parts of the Hull University halls of residence where


some students could not get out. The waters began to rise
