The Army veteran facing a ?4,000 medical bill because the NHS

:00:00.:00:08.

says he wasn't entitled to free treatment.

:00:09.:00:12.

It's disgusting that they still think I am an overseas

:00:13.:00:16.

Businessed report a boost in New Year's takings as foreign

a bill for more than ?4,000 from the NHS for treatment

:00:46.:00:49.

Malcolm Roberts from Scotter says although he was born

:00:50.:00:54.

I've paid all my taxes and everything else,

:01:31.:01:33.

that I would get a bill from the NHS for treatment to which I am

:01:34.:01:37.

Malcolm says he sent proof of his UK citizenship to the NHS

:01:38.:01:44.

and is now awaiting a response but after ringing the hospital

:01:45.:01:47.

to discuss the bill, he says he was told it was correct

:01:48.:01:50.

and he was to pay it by the middle of this month.

:01:51.:01:53.

It's disgusting the way they have treated me and it's disgusting that

:01:54.:01:57.

in spite of the information that I have given to them

:01:58.:02:03.

that they still think I am an overseas visitor and have to pay.

:02:04.:02:09.

positive. This morning many of the city's traders only had good news to

for the three days because of City Of Culture. It is the busiest we

off to a good start in 2017. Last night crowds continued to watch

:04:52.:04:57.

moments of Hull's past projected onto the buildings. The popularity

:04:58.:04:59.

of made in Hull. We did not need of made in Hull. We did not need

:05:00.:05:09.

City Of Culture. It is telling the world what we have already known.

:05:10.:05:14.

The secret is out. They can come and share it with us, it is no longer

:05:15.:05:18.

just ours, we are sharing it with the world. The interest in the

:05:19.:05:23.

installations which are here until Saturday is benefiting local

:05:24.:05:28.

business. The feedback last night, and they have done the walk. We have

people who are coming back with relatives at the weekend. It is all

:06:17.:06:19.

The annual event is thought to date back to the 1700s.

:06:20.:06:24.

A shoulder of mutton, a crown to spend.

:06:25.:06:29.

A traditional rhyme that shopkeepers reward with sweet and coins.

:06:30.:06:40.

It's a ritual repeated up-and-down Driffield High Street.

:06:41.:06:44.

They throw money and sweets and we just grab it.

I've got loads of sweets and it's been really fun.

Now a look at the weather forecast with Keeley Donovan.

:07:50.:07:52.

The main story being there is a lot of dry weather about but there

:07:53.:07:58.

will also be a lot of cloud around as well.

:07:59.:08:02.

Here is the satellite picture from earlier.

:08:03.:08:03.

You can see all the cloud across the UK, always

:08:04.:08:06.

We are in the best place to get some brightness.

:08:07.:08:10.

Do not be surprised if the sun doesn't come out every now

:08:11.:08:13.

The breeze will be moderate from the west.

:08:14.:08:17.

Quiet conditions but crucially it will be dry.

:08:18.:08:19.

Temperatures about average for the time of year,

:08:20.:08:22.

getting up to around six or seven degrees.

Through this evening and overnight, we are going to see milder air

:08:25.:08:31.

pushing from the north, not as cold as last night.

:08:32.:08:33.

Still a lot of cloud overnight producing a few showers especially

:08:34.:08:36.

for the coast later and it is along the coast which will really

:08:37.:08:39.

become windy overnight, strong and gusty winds developing

:08:40.:08:41.

for tomorrow and as you can see temperatures down

:08:42.:08:45.

Still some cloud around but it will develop into a lovely

:08:46.:08:50.

day, plenty of sunshine, just the odd shower clipping

:08:51.:08:52.

the coast and it really will feel raw along the coastline

:08:53.:08:55.

with a strong and gusty breeze coming down from the north-west.

:08:56.:08:59.

Temperatures five or six degrees. Plenty of sunshine.

:09:00.:09:03.

A frost to start the day on Thursday and really quite cold but below

:09:04.:09:06.

freezing in quite few rural spots, plenty of sunshine once again.
