Increased number of visitors to Yorkshire

Visitor numbers to Yorkshire have increased during what's been a tough year nationally, according to latest figures.

Trips to the county were up 16.3% for the period September 2011 to August 2012 according to the official Great Britain Travel Survey.

Advertisements including branding every ticket barrier at London's Kings Cross station with Welcome to Yorkshire, a television ad campaign and product placement promoting the county in Emmerdale, are all thought to have helped.
