For no discernible reason, I assume?


Yes, there was a reason - because Hull Trains have just launched a load of new trains and it was recently announced they were Britain's most unreliable train company.

I know it's not the most compelling bit of news but it's clearly local news and exactly what a local news programme should be covering, surely.

And one day last week too. Did anyone catch it? It was a serious report from the Hull newsroom about a fan injured by a flare at a concert that ended with him joking about Simon McCoy not suffering the same fate at his Michael Buble concert. Not in the best taste considering the poor woman's injury.

Except he had the chance, but failed to ask Hull Train supremo Cheeseman why the company failed so badly after she took it over, She blocked any responses to complaints and pretended nothing was wrong with her management it was just the trains. The truth is far more interesting, but that is journalism and its in short supply in Hull. Better to have Levy simper after a few rather poorly equipped IET's with no proper catering.

I love the fact how pally pally they were when last year she wouldn't even talk to the BBC in Hull! ''Thank you for watching live from Platform 7 at Hull station''... must have had a least 10 mentions in the 28 minute programme!

Holding loop I assume, as it sounds like they just failed to opt in because they evacuated and wouldn't have had time to get Granada or Tyne Tees to step in.


I've lost track these days, is the Calendar studio co sited with the Leeds playout Centre?


I think they're all in the same main building now along with Emmerdale. Isn't Calendar in what was the YTV bar?
