However, North Lincolnshire Council's director of development, Amanda Spalding, believes co-operation between the four new unitary councils will be better than the arrangements under the old county.

The FT reports that the Humber estuary ports have quietly become the busiest in Britain, and one of England's more peripheral areas has suddenly gained a new central role astride the European Union's northern trade routes.
