defeat at the High Court in London today.
Environmental campaigners who have been blocking the entrance to an oil
and gas exploration site ne`r Walkington have been told to remove
this tower. The legal action was taken by the firm, Rathlin Dnergy,
and the farmer who owns the land, but tonight the protestors have told
This shows the difficulty of small people on big companies. Despite
repeated assurances from thd repeated assurances from the
operator, Rathlin Energy, that they are not fracking and do not attend
to do so, the protesters ard not to do so, the protesters are not
backing down. It is this terror that will have to
come down. Last week, Rathlhn Energy, said it would renew its
licence on this site. The company said there will be nothing to
prevent protesters from poor testing legally if they can find somewhere

was the farmer getting down this road. The two videos of lorries
coming in and out of their with crops and things like that. There
was no obstructions to the way of the farmer. There was no obstruction
to his lawful business. We have won this, we have won this, we have one.
It is not going to happen. Some of the protesters have admitted
surprise at the decision because the landlord has still had access to his
land, in their opinion. But it isn't clear what the structure is being
used for has become a block`de to try to stop Rathlin Energy from
accessing the site. It has been built into a symbol of defi`nce and
built into a symbol of defiance and it now has to come down. But what is
clear is that the feeling alongst clear is that the feeling alongst
the people remains strong, regardless of the tower. In a

former chief executive of Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals
Trust for spending tens of thousands of pounds on an NHS credit card
Phil Morley used the card to pay for stays in exclusive hotels, bills and
a trip to Florida. There is no suggestion that these

It's one of the most famous roles in ballet, being performed
at one of the most famous theatres. Tonight Xander Parish, a dancer from
Hull, will be taking to the stage at the Royal Opera
House in Covent Garden to perform Romeo in Romeo and Juliet.
As Simon Spark reports, his journey to the London stage
only aspire to it here as the principal role in Romeo and Juliet,
dancing for the world famous Russian company is a boy from Hull `nd his
name is Xander Parish. It is a fantastic experience. It is a
privilege. To return now and come back and dance a major piece, it is
a dream. It is really exciting. His
journey started here, aged dight years old. I remember this and he
was a little boy running into class with his sister. In his
black shorts and a T`shirt. Looking very out of control. Rather like
Bambi on ice. Then, eventually, he started to understand the tdchnique
and I realised he had these beautiful legs and feet which are
essential to a classical dancer. He has become an inspiration. Because
he came from our dance school and he went to the same school I go to It
makes you think you can reach what he has done. From
Hull he joined the Royal Ballet and then he was spotted and Russian
ballet company invited him to Russia. It is very important but
talented artist. He had an `mazing way with technique
and he saw something in me that he seemed to think he
could work with. There were days when I thought I would never
quite get there but when you do get there, it makes you value it a lot
more and take care of it. He will perform as Romeo at the Roy`l Opera
