Work to restore the historic Saltpot water tower in Goole is progressing well. Contractors for Yorkshire Water have put scaffolding up the 150 foot high building to enable them to work on the concrete that makes up he structure.
When the tower was built in 1926 it was Europe's largest water tower. Even though it is a much loved local landmark, very few people have climbed it other than those who built it. The town's MP Andrew Percy will get a tour of it this morning to check on the work's progress.
