Work to install new security measures and improve signage in the car park of East Yorkshire’s busiest hospital has started.

Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust has begun installing new CCTV cameras at its Argyle Street car park, opposite Hull Royal Infirmary, along with a number of entry and exit barriers.

The new security measures will complement a new, fairer ‘pay on foot’ charging system which is also being introduced, and both are expected to be operational by early December.

Once installed, new pay stations will require visitors to pay for their parking when they exit the car park, meaning those using the facility will pay according to the time they have used.

No prosecution over Alder body mix-up

A police investigation into the discovery of former paratrooper Christopher Alder's body in a mortuary in Hull and the later exhumation of Grace Kamara from his grave has concluded that there will be no proscutions over the mix-up.

The South Yorkshire Police investigation team presented a detailed and extensive investigation report to the Crown Prosecution Service to seek formal advice relating to a number of mortuary staff to establish if they had committed criminal offences relative to the circumstances of the case.

After careful consideration of all the circumstances and the evidence available, the Crown Prosecution Service have concluded that there is no realistic prospect of a conviction for either misconduct in a public office, or the prevention of the lawful burial of a body.

Mr Alder died while in custody at Hull's Queens Gardens Police Station. His body was discovered at the morgue at Hull Royal Infirmary in 2011 - more than a decade after his family thought they had buried him.
