Councillor: Housing investment will create jobs in Hull

Hull City Council is turning several empty buildings into new homes, including a former care home which has been redeveloped into 18 new flats. It's thanks to a successful bid for £5m of empty homes funding from the government.

A sherpa helping a team of climbers from a Sheffield expedition company has been killed after an avalanche on Mount Everest.

Another local sherpa with the group from Jagged Globe is in hospital, while another four guides have escaped without serious injuries.

The avalanche struck early in the morning as the Nepali guides went out to fix ropes for the climbers along the route to the 29,000ft summit.

The team of climbers from the UK were at base camp at the time and have been helping coordinate getting people down. They left the country at the start of April and were due to complete the challenge by the end of May.
