By the way, Yorkshire is not a county in the same way that Wessex is not a county. Yorkshire it is a collection of 4 counties namely, West Yorkshire, South Yorkshire, North Yorkshire and the imaginatively named Humberside.
Hate to be pedantic but East Riding hasn't been called Humberside for over 20 years.
