Presenter Chris Evans has promised to visit East Yorkshire after seeing a picture of Flamborough Head in a national newspaper.

The Radio 2 Breakfast Show host admitted he did not know Flamborough existed but wants to find out more after being wowed by a stunning photograph of the cliffs in The Mirror.

He could not believe it was somewhere in this country, and his comments led Chris to invite East Riding councillor Jane Evison onto his show to talk about the area.

“I had never heard of Flamborough,” he told her. “The phantom Flamborough. We saw some gorgeous pictures of your cove – is it a cove?”

Cllr Evison assured him it was just as lovely in real life as in the paper, and discussed some of the other delights along the East Yorkshire coast.

From the rock pools, birds and cliffs of Flamborough to the golden sands of Bridlington, she explained that the area is very diverse.

“Just a few miles from Flamborough you are in the Wolds, the area David Hockney paints,” she said.

The interview concluded with Chris promising to visit “sometime in the near future”.
