When William was asked by pupils at Goole High School what music he liked, the Duke was heard to reply: "I really like Coldplay, Linkin Park."

He turned down an offer by pupils who are part of the school's samba band to play one of the drums, telling them: "I used to play the piano, trumpet and drums when I was your age but I couldn't read music.

"There's only so much you can remember from the top of your head."

Two people have been rescued after abandoning their pleasure boat when it caught fire this morning on the River Ouse in East Yorkshire.

The 36ft Moonraker cruiser was said to be "well alight" by the time the pair were pulled from the water, uninjured, near Blacktoft by Humber Rescue volunteers.

The vessel, which was carrying a gas cylinder and 125 litres of diesel fuel as it drifted upstream near Reedness, later sunk.

Emergency services, who were called out at 8:00am, mobilised a firefighting tug but it was not used.

More than 1,000 explosives found on beach after landslide

More than 1,000 explosives from the Second World War have been uncovered following a landslide at a beach. A cordon was put in place after the ordnance at Mappleton beach near Hornsea, East Yorkshire, became exposed. Army bomb disposal experts have been dealing with the incident since yesterday.

Ordnance is uncovered several times a year due to coastal erosion but with the recent poor weather we've had it's exacerbated the erosion and all this has been uncovered. There is a mix of rockets, mortars, 25lb bombs and more... We are advising people to stay away from the area.
