Hull Trains, which runs services between Beverley and London, remains under pressure from rail union RMT despite an 11th hour reprieve over the weekend when all-out strike action affecting Sunday services was put on hold. The RMT says it’s considering new correspondence from the company regarding staff pension rights. Union officials told Beverley FM it will fight to stop the rail operator closing down a well-funded pension scheme and that a rest-day working and overtime ban will continue. The dispute escalated after talks with ACAS broke down. Hull Trains say they will continue negotiations to reach an agreement. While they aim to maintain services passengers should double-check before they travel.

Police are warning of the dangers of cannabis edibles, which are illegal in the UK, being offered to children in Beverley and the East Riding during the summer holidays. Officers told us they are in the form of well disguised sweets, chocolates and drinks laced with mood altering properties and potentially fatal side effects because they are much stronger than other cannabis products.

For a more wholesome diversion for young people during the school holidays SHE Productions has teamed up with East Riding council to provide a series of workshops in Beverley and across the county. Full details of how to book the free arts and graffiti sessions are online Here
