Mr Goodwill has welcomed today’s ground-breaking figures showing that there are 139.000 more people in work across the Yorkshire and Humber and over 2.3 million more people across the United Kingdom back in work having the security of a regular pay packet than in 2010.

Scarborough has been named as home to the UK’s ‘Most romantic walk’, just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Living Streets, the UK charity for everyday walking, asked 15,000 of its supporters to nominate their favourite UK town or city for romantic walks and say why they had chosen it. 
The entries were narrowed down based on the number of nominations received and the most romantic reasons given, and put up for public vote.
Scarborough fought off competition from Chester, London, Oxford and Glasgow to win, taking 28 per cent of the vote.
