The Humber Bridge Master has praised the campaigning efforts of cancer sufferer Jenny Walton who died at the weekend.
Mrs Walton wanted patients travelling across the bridge to be able to do so for free.
“I had the honour of meeting Jenny on several occasions and we discussed her deep conviction that persons using the Humber Bridge for medical treatment should not be required to pay a toll.
Although we could never agree on that as a basic principle, I always admired the unremitting, but very reasonable way in which she presented her arguments.
“I would like to pass on my sincere condolences to her family who must be, I am sure, very proud of Jenny’s indomitable spirit. The Humber Bridge Board continues to review their concessionary arrangements on a regular basis, but have neither confirmed, or ruled out, any changes to these. “

Humberside Police think they may be able to link together almost 30 fuel thefts across the region
Since Monday 6 January, a Transit style van has been used to steal fuel from petrol station forecourts in South Cave, Beverley, Cottingham, Anlaby, Hessle, Woodmansey, Bridlington, Goole, Hull, Scunthorpe and Grimsby.
They think at least two vans have been used to commit the thefts, one white Trand the second silver.
On all occasions the vans have approached the forecourt of the petrol station, filled the vehicle up and driven away, without offering payment. They were all on a variety of false plates.
The unusual thing being that the majority of them took place at a number of petrol stations, quite literally, one straight after the other.
Officers are working to try and locate the offenders stealing the fuel, which totals over £3000. It is not known what is happening to the stolen fuel although its likely its being sold on.

A former senior detective from East Yorkshire has appeared in court accused of rape and stalking.
Colin Andrews - who is a retired detective chief superintendent with Humberside Police - appeared at Manchester Magistrates' Court to face a charge that he raped a woman in December 2003.
The former officer, from Brough, is also charged with stalking, common assault and harassment.
Andrews, 57, stood in the glass-fronted dock as the charges were put to him, wearing a grey suit, white shirt and striped tie.
During the 15-minute hearing, he spoke only to confirm his name, date of birth and address and to acknowledge he understood what District Judge Mark Hadfield had told him.
Andrews will appear next at Manchester Crown Court on March 7. He was granted conditional bail.
Andrews was responsible for a number of high profile investigations for Humberside Police during his long career, including the death of Army cadet Stephen Hilder in a mysterious sky-diving incident in 2003.
After his retirement, he continued working for the force in a civilian role.

Firefighter jobs will be lost and engines scrapped as Humberside Fire Service struggles to balance its books.
There is an almost £6 million black hole in the brigade's budget - which needs to be plugged in the next three years.
Today the fire authority also agreed to cut the number of crew on each of its engines to four - the bare minimum the service will allow.
Michael Billington reports:
Four fire engines are to be cut from Humberside Fire and Rescue Service to cut costs.
The controversial decisions have been made at a meeting of the Humberside Fire Authority.
In Hull there are currently seven operational fire engines. This will go down to six. The full-time engine will be lost from East Hull, and will be replaced by a Small Fire Unit 4x4 vehicle manned by two firefighters.
In North East Lincolnshire there are currently six operational fire engines. They will be cut to three. One engine will be lost in Grimsby, one in Cleethorpes and one in Waltham.
All proposals for changes in Immingham have been rejected.
The changes to the service will mean a saving of £2.5 million from the budget, but there is still £3.2 million to be taken from the 2016-2017 budget.
