There are claims that around 350 jobs may be at risk at Willerby Holiday Homes, one of the region's biggest caravan manufacturers.

This follows the Chancellor's proposal to levy 20% VAT on static caravans from October.
Karl Turner, Labour MP for Hull East, has reacted to the possible redundancies.
