A school project to build a fully operational plane is taking off at Goole High school. It's hoped it'll take to the skies in the summer.
The sister of a motorcyclist found seriously injured in a ditch almost three days after he crashed says it's a miracle that he is alive.
People whose homes were damaged by floods this month will demand answers at a cabinet meeting tonight.

Pilot, Jack Milnes, says building an airplane with students at Goole High School was inspired by kids telling him they doubted if they could ever get their pilot's license:
A group of students at Goole High School have set their sights high - by building their own plane.

A medieval building near Goole has been taken off the "Heritage at Risk" register after being rescued with a £90,000 grant from English Heritage.
The Adlingfleet rectory, which includes a doorway that dates from the 12th century, fell derelict in the 1970s. It was bought by the current owners, Tim and Amanda Harding in 1996.
They stabilised the building to stop it decaying but could not afford to do the repairs that were desperately needed to bring the building back into use.
But now, thanks to the grant from English Heritage, the rectory, which is protected as a scheduled monument and listed at grade II*, has been made weather-tight and useable for the first time in 40 years.
Existing parts of the structure including walls and timbers have been repaired, and a new timber first floor and roof have been added.
The non-league footballer who attracted worldwide headlines after his confrontation with a supporter was caught on film has given his first television interview, and says he feels "embarrassed" by his actions.
Karl Colley, who was club captain, was sacked by Goole AFC after he went into the stands and allegedly tried to punch an away supporter when he was sent off against Coalville last Saturday.
The Football Association has now charged him with improper conduct. Colley says he was provoked, but that it is no excuse.
David Hirst met the man behind the controversy:
Reduced car parking charges at three hospitals in our region come into effect from today. The charges at Goole, Scunthorpe and Grimsby's hospitals have been cut after visitors and patients complained about the fees.
Goole AFC have told Karl Colley he will never play for them again after he was involved in an altercation with a visiting fan - 19 years to the day since Eric Cantona's infamous assault on a supporter.
There are concerns people’s lives are being put at serious risk by thieves targeting overhead power lines across West Yorkshire.
In the last week alone, nine incidents of theft from the electricity network have taken place locally with 40 in total over the last few weeks.
The thefts have resulted in approximately 13 kilometres of copper cable being stolen and thousands of properties experiencing disruption to their electricity power supplies as a result
Earlier this week, thieves damaged overhead lines in East Yorkshire in two incidents near Goole which interrupted electricity supplies to 1019 properties.
In many cases, thieves cutting power lines carrying 11,000 volts have left the cable ends hanging dangerously across public roads and footpaths.
Once again, thieves are showing complete disregard for people’s safety to steal cable with relatively little financial value. The cost of the repair is not our primary concern. It’s the significant risk to public life that worries us most of all. Our power lines are over public land and cross footpaths and roads, so the potential danger to safety is significant. Our engineers will always respond extremely quickly once they’re made aware of damage to the electricity network to make our equipment safe, but it could be a member of the public who comes across the damage first.
– Mick Hickling, Head of Network Repairs at Northern Powergrid
We appeal to people living and working locally to be alert to any suspicious activity around our power lines and to notify us, the police on 101 or the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 immediately. One phone call could save someone’s life.
– Gemma Wilson, Crimestoppers
What these people don’t realise is they are not only putting the community in danger, but also themselves – so don’t let them get away with their actions. Contact Crimestoppers anonymously, safe in the knowledge that nobody will ever know you contacted us.
