The Malton MP, Anne McIntosh, has welcomed the announcement that Malton's Minor Injuries Unit will be reopened on weekday evenings and during the day at weekends. It follows the controversial reduction of hours at the unit to save money in December.
I welcome reinstating daytime opening hours during the weekend. The Unit serves the farming community, many racehorse trainers and others who are at risk of injuries and need swift treatment. I am delighted that the voice of local people responding to the consultation has been heard and that the Minor Injuries Unit will be open during the day, seven days a week.
There is a row on a housing estate in Hull where residents are angry at plans for a new water pumping station.
Yorkshire Water wants to build a larger facility for dealing with surface water to stop a repeat of the 2007 floods, but people living nearby say they don't want it in their street and they've suggested an alternative location.
A draft bill aimed at tackling both flooding and water shortages doesn't go far enough, according to the North Yorkshire MP, Anne McIntosh. She says the Government has been too slow to act. Chris Kiddey reports from Malton in North Yorkshire.
