Children's mental health unit in East Yorkshire could re-open

A specialist unit for children with mental health problems in East Yorkshire could be re-opened following the intervention of the Health Minister.

It comes in the wake of a campaign by a mother from Hessle, who had a four-hour round trip to visit her mentally-ill teenage daughter - because there're no local in-patient beds for young people.

Sally Burke's daughter Maisie Shaw, also has autism. Last night both of of them were in London where they met MPs to discuss what's been described as a national scandal in the care of vulnerable children.

This was a very serious fire that completely destroyed the building and caused damage to neighbouring properties. We suspect the fire was started deliberately and we are still carrying out extensive enquiries to trace the person responsible. Checks on CCTV in the area have shown this male on a bicycle in the vicinity around the time of the incident. Although his face is not clear on the images, his clothing and the bike itself are fairly distinctive and we would like to hear from anyone who thinks they know who it is.
