The team behind Hull's year as UK City of Culture say it's
going to welcome "more visitors than ever" - after 60,000
people came into the city centre on its first day.
As well as those watching the week-long light and sound
spectacular, organisers estimate tens of thousands more also watched
the huge fireworks show from points along the north and south banks
Here's our culture correspondent Anne-Marie Tasker.
Hull's reign as UK City of Culture came in with a bang,
as 15,000 fireworks exploded across the city's sky.
25,000 people packed in, to see a show organisers promised
would be bigger than London's on New Year's Eve.
I thought the show was amazing. It was good to hear the. I can't wait
to see all the other events and I will certainly be going to a lot of
them, great for the city. A lot of work must have gone into that and it
is very impressive and good to see something so spectacular in Hull.
But before the fireworks, another spectacle had
For a week, Made in Hull will look back at a century
of the city's history - the blitz, the dozens
of trawlermen lost at sea and happier times like
Hull City's Premier League promotion.
There are lots of people and apparently there will be 8000 people
coming and going in the next couple of days and hopefully even more. I
can't wait to hear and see how the audience respond. It is the story of
Hull. Elsewhere, crowds experienced
what it would be like to walk out onto the pitch at the Kcom stadium -
experienced installations - and watched other films on some
of the city's iconic buildings. When Hull won the City of Culture
title three years ago, the City Council said it would bring
an extra ?60 million into the city. Organisers hope an extra million
visitors will come during 2017 - this opening event's got them off
to a good start. The reaction has been hugely
positive and it'll will come more visitors than ever and it will
change the city for the better as we look towards what we want the city
to be in the future. Three and a half tonnes of fireworks
got city of culture off to an explosive start -
one organisers hope to maintain You've been sending us your pictures

Ambulance Service which covers Lincolnshire says it's
experienced its busiest Staff had to cut meal breaks last
night to help cope with what's been described as an exceptional
number of calls. EMAS says it received
around 50% more 999 calls In the Lincolnshire derby
at Gainsborough Trinity yesterday an injured Boston United player
waited for two hours in the first aid room before being taken by car
to hospital because no For him to be just laid in a room
for two hours in his football kept with his ankle like that with no
painkillers or anything, that could have had serious implications on his
future, not just his footballing career but his normal life. We
actually have more staff on than we normally would have. Over the last
few days we have been receiving an unprecedented demand for the service
and we have actually been receiving a 999 call every few seconds.
One of Lincolnshire's biggest planned new housing developments
is to get "garden village" status from the government.
The site to the south west of Grantham known
as Spitalgate Heath will see almost 4,000 new homes built
as well as schools, offices and a retail developments.
Government money will go towards developing the new community
These fields, at Spitalgate Heath just outside Grantham,
have been earmarked as the site for a new type of development -
It would see a brand new community, complete with facilities
like a school and shops, built in open countryside.
But in Grantham today, the announcement received
We haven't quite seen anything quite like garden villages before, only
garden tones but I don't think they are overambitious and if anything
they add little to housing supply. They are good step in a new concept
but they want alone solve the housing supply problem. I think the
tone can grow and get a bit larger and attract new shops to the town
centres and that is all good. It is probably going to get congested and
affect everyone coming into the town from that end. If you are building
new villages are not prevailing amenities then places are closed.
Plans to build 3700 new homes on this site have been on the table for
a number of years, but today's announcement that the project has
been given garden village status means along with 13 other sites, it
will be able to access government expertise and a ?6 million fund over
the next two years to help accelerate the project and overcome
delays. a new village here will still need
planning permission before it any building can start,
and it may be many years Hull City were beaten 3-1
by West Bromwich Albion despite taking the lead
in the first half. Robert Snodgrass put the Tigers
ahead but West Brom came back Scunthorpe Utd led until the 84th
minute when Peterborough equalised but Grimsby Town had a happier
afternoon winning 3-1 It looks like much of this week will
be dry but with some rain spreading from the West and through Friday. At
the moment clear as a bell with the temperature dropping away fairly
smartly. A cold night with widespread frost rurally and the
temperature down to -1 so take care on untreated surfaces. Tuesday look
set to be fine and dry with probably more in the way of cloud but never
the less it should be bright with spells of sunshine. Numerically, the
temperature should be high compared with today but a fresh west when
should take the edge of the temperature, so HLA-DR and Wednesday
back to the sunny skies. A fine day on Thursday but the risk of rain
spreading from the West. That is the forecast.
We are back later tonight, goodbye for now.
Good evening. It has been turning colder and clearer and
Good evening. It has been turning colder and clearer and our weather
watchers have been capturing the sunshine. Here is the scene in
Derbyshire and where we have had the clear skies by day, we are in for a
cold night tonight. Temperatures already plummeting, particularly
towards the south with some icy stretches across parts of central
and southern England, and into
