Police searching for the killer of a landlady in Bridlington havd

evening. 150 officers including armed units are now looking for

Sweeting is in South Yorkshire where the hunt is taking place. K`te, why
are officers focusing their search there?

his arrest. Four days after the murder, he is still at largd. It was

after living in China. She is a wife after living in China. She is a wife
and a wife and other and thdy are and a wife and other and they are
struggling to come to terms with why this has happened and are n`turally

was staying at the guesthouse and was already on the run from police
for another crime at Sheffield. Was enough done to protect the community
in Bridlington from them? I think enough was done because it was
difficult to suggest what this gentleman would have done. Nobody
knew this was a possibility and he could've gone anywhere in the
country. It would have been impossible to predict he would be
country. It would have been impossible to predict he wotld be in
Bridlington and it is impossible to say how we could have prevented this
from happening. We need continued support in the coming hours to do
everything we can with the resources we have two get him arrested. Police

A temporary ice pad is to bd bought in to allow Grimsby's ice rink
to re`open, at a cost of more than ?200,000.
It was closed around six wedks ago because
of problems with its refrigeration. North East Lincolnshire Council says
eventually a new rink will be built in the town.
We are going to soft test the area and we would
like to put the ice rink in, so that will be down to developers.
More importantly, by the end of this week, we will get a time fr`me for
getting the refrigeration units, getting the temporary ice p`d in.
It will be weeks and not months. Brilliant news. Really happx.

Officers in Humberside Police drew their Tasers 460 times in one year.
It's prompted concern from the national police watchdog because
the two forces are at the top of a national list of taser usd ` with
officers here more than twice as likely to draw their weapon compared
with much bigger forces including the Met and
Our cameras filmed these officers from Lincolnshire Police le`rning
The force was one of the first to trial the ddvice.
Now the police watchdog is concerned about how often officers usd them.
There are five forces nationally which account for half of the uses.
Last year, Humberside Policd used Tasers 462 times.
While officers in Lincolnshire used them 259 times.
But while some other forces used the device more often,
the concern here is about ntmber of times Tasers were used,
Home Office data shows officers from Humberside Police are some
Figures from 2013 show for every 100 officers in the force,
Similarly, in Lincolnshire, for every 100 officers there were 23
But for London's Metropolit`n Police that figure was just seven uses per
The police do not always fire Tasers.
Lincolnshire Police claim in most cases they used
the device as a deterrent to stop offenders from turning violdnt.
Humberside's Police Commissioner agrees.
We have more officers using and having access.
It is a safe tool, a great way of controlling dangerous situations.
With usage increasing every year the police watchdog wants to know
why some forces are using them more frequently than others.
I spoke Sophie Khan, a solictor advocate who represents Tasdr
I think that they are used when there is a life`threatening
situation. It is only after that that it should be used. It should
not be used to threaten or do care the individual. `` or deter. I have
a number of cases and have done a lot of campaigning over the last
couple of years and I see the impact that they have on individuals who
are not involved in any kind of criminality and do not have a weapon
with them. But if they are not involved in anything, why would
there be concerned by the police? If that is no criminality involved,
there be concerned by the police? If that is no criminality involved it
that is no criminality involved, it should not be used in the fhrst
should not be used in the first place and especially if there is no
weapon involved. I have somd clients who were just in the wrong place at
the wrong time and certain individuals might have ment`l health
issues and are unaware of what they are doing and also they do not have
weapons. Do you think it is being used too much? I think it is being
used to readily by police forces because it is double the number of
times or triple the number of times that forces across the country use
them. You've been debating this one on
Facebook throughout the day. Natalie: "Carry on using them
because not only does it prdvent an on the arresting officer but
prevents further attacks on the public"
Stuart: "It's just an easy way to get people to do what the police
tell them to. whatever happdned to the strict hands`on approach".
Simon: "Anything that could kill or harm someone should be used as a
last resort. Unfortunately some police officers are only to happy to
use it". If you want to join in log onto Facebook and search for BBC

week and also into Saturday. People who live on the
East Yorkshire coast are being asked to take responsibility
for cleaning their local beaches. East Riding Council says beautiful
beaches are spoiled by rubbhsh and wants councillors to lead teams
of volunteer litter pickers. The group Keep Britain Tidy says
a minority of people who drop litter ` like here in Queen's Gardens
in Hull ` think someone elsd will pick it up and the Government says
that costs ?1 billion a year. We'll be asking whether you should
challenge people who drop lhtter. First our environment correspondent,
Paul Murphy, These are some of the finest beaches
you will find anywhere. Even more glorious when the sun
shines. But the East Coast is hiding a dirty
secret. The legacy of those who reftse to
take their rubbish home. From beer cans, which unfortunately
people do leave when they have had a barbecue on the beach.
The campaign now being launched to clear up our beaches is arguably one
of the most determined for decades. We have a scheme called Ways Of
Waste. Really, it's an initiative to try
and get everybody involved in taking a little bit of responsibilhty,
citizenship, really, for our coast. We have, at the moment, 17 sites up
and down the Yorkshire coast. In the most recent litter survey of
the East Coast from Flamborough to Spurn, more than 10,000 items
were recovered. It's thought around 75% of it is
made up of plastic or polystyrene. Research shows that 94% of birds
examined in the North Sea had ingested plastic particles.
The beaches around Flamborough are among the most beautiful in the UK
but you only have to take a stroll for a couple of minutes to realise
they have got a real problem here. And, as the holiday season begins,
so the size of the challengd gets bigger.
It is a mess, you can tell it's a mess.
Obviously, it's keeping up with it. Every time we come down, we do take
ours up top with us and take it home to the caravan, and
things like that. If everybody did it, it would not be
as bad, would it? It is a case of having to carry it
to the top, or to the car p`rk, put it in your car.
I mean, you can find a bin somewhere, can't you?
The clear`up message is getting through but there will
always be those who ignore ht. The evidence of their days at the
seaside I spoke to Phil Barton,
the head of Keep Britain Tidy. I asked him if he knows why some
people leave litter behind. The vast majority of the population
realises it should not matter and realises it should not matter and
most people do not letter. There is much more plastic fast food
available for people to letter in the first place. Should we ask
people to pick up litter or do we risk getting a mouthful? We
recommend people are careful and recognise a situation that you are
recognise a situation that xou are then. I do not tackle people
recognise a situation that you are then. I do not tackle peopld when I
then. I do not tackle people when I do not feel it would be safd
then. I do not tackle peopld when I do not feel it would be safe to
then. I do not tackle people when I do not feel it would be safd to do
do not feel it would be safe to do so. Is it a good enough exctse
do not feel it would be safd to do so. Is it a good enough excuse to
say there are not enough bins? No. Everybody has personal
responsibility for the lettdr they responsibility for the lettdr they
produce and it is very easy to take it home or find the nearest litter
then and ideally to recycle it because any letter is just resources
in the wrong place and we nded to concentrate on generally reducing
our waste. At the deterrent is not so much financial but if yot expect
to get caught or not. You have to to get caught or not. You have to
have a sensible policy for ht to get caught or not. You h`ve to
have a sensible policy for it but to get caught or not. You have to
have a sensible policy for ht but we have a sensible policy for it but we
do believe there should be lore enforcement and that would have an
impact on people. What is your message to people who drop litter?
You are messing up the nest for everybody else and it is very easy
to avoid. If you want to be in touch on this issue, you can e`mail
to avoid. If you want to be in touch on this issue, you can e`mahl us or
text us. We will have some of your stories tomorrow night.

Becci Ellis had no idea unthl the end of her record`breaking attempt.
I had a ticket that was shoved onto the end of the tank,
I hadn't noticed that the thcket was there straight away and it was only
when I sat back and looked down that I realised I'd got 248.5 mph.
And I was absolutely elated, I was just squeaking, it was amazing.
And, as this amateur footagd shows, 248.5 mph is pretty quick.
The bike was hand`built by Becky's husband, Mike, at their home
