Have your say on news and issues from around East Yorkshire

Tourism is very important to the rural economy and to allow people to experience East Yorkshire the link to Driffield is by Road or rail but in the past the most important route to Hull was by canal unfortunately for a number of years this route has been obstructed by the Wansford -Skern bridge. What could be nicer then to come from Beverley or Hull to Driffield via the canal. It is therefore suggested that Driffield Council lobbies East Riding of Yorkshire Council Highways Department to reconfigure the bridge to allow barges to come up to Driffield.
