Calendar presenter Gaynor Barnes spoke to the MP for Cleethorpes, Martin Vickers and began by asking him that today's decision to delay the Able Marine Energy Park - must be disappointing.
A decision is due later this morning on whether to grant permission to create a £450-million marine energy park on the south bank of the Humber.
The development could generate anything from between 4,000 to 10,000 jobs at a purpose-built renewables port and logistics facility at North Killingholme.
To date, the decision has been delayed twice by Government officials. The Teesside company planning to develop the energy park, Able UK, is waiting for a decision by Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin.
The company's plans would cover 865 acres on the south bank of the Humber, providing state-of-the-art quayside facilities for the manufacture, assembly and installation of offshore renewable technologies.
- Grimsby has already established itself as a key operations and maintenance hub for southern North Sea farms, stretching from the Greater Wash to the North Yorkshire coast.
- Centrica, Siemens, Dong Energy, E.on and RES are all now established in the town, with indigenous companies also heavily involved in the sector.
A pleasure barge the Nidd is grounded on the River Humber on the left bank. Humber Lifeboat tried but failed to free it last night. They'll make another attempt at high tide at noon today.
Martin Rumford from Humber Rescue says three men who had gone for a swim in the river yesterday had a lucky escape. Two men were found exhausted crawling up the beach and another had made it safely to a buoy.
He's warning people not to go for a swim in open water.

Humber RNLI have rescued a pensioner who collapsed on board a North Sea ferry. The 78-year-old was travelling to the Black Forest with her husband when she fell ill and sustained injuries to her face and possibly her neck on Saturday night.
The ferry crew decided she needed hospital treatment and called the lifeboat to evacuate her to Grimsby. She was taken ashore safely by the Humber RNLI and transferred to hospital.
