Hull Trains has announced that it’s bouncing back after a string of stoppages through pandemic lockdowns that hit the company hard. Andy Mellors, Managing Director of Non-Franchised Businesses at FirstGroup Rail Division, told Beverley FM that the future is now bright. Passenger numbers are continuing to increase which he said was great news for East Yorkshire as direct rail connections between Beverley and London have played a major role in strengthening the regional economy. Today is the 21st anniversary of the first Hull Trains service.

A specialist medical team from the Humber Teaching NHS Foundation Trust has clinched a major national award for patient safety. The winning project was the Humber Sensory Processing Hub website, which promotes a better understanding of sensory processing difficulties. These are commonly present in children with neurodiverse conditions such as Autism and ADHD.  Judges said the website is a great step in the right direction to providing increased access to information that can support young people.
