HULL: Hotels and guesthouses across the city are being urged to make sure they hold the correct TV licence.
A TV licence is required if guests or staff are watching TV as it is broadcast.
For many smaller hotels and guesthouses, the cost of a licence is £145.50 a year, the same amount as a private house.
Hotels with more than 15 rooms are covered by one licence for the first 15 televisions, but will need an additional licence for every five thereafter.

EAST RIDING: A decision to refuse permission for six wind turbines to be built near Burton Agnes is set to be appealed.
East Riding Council had turned down the application to build the 330ft turbines at Thornholme Field, in Rudston Road, but an appeal means the matter will be decided by a planning inspector at a public inquiry.
Councillors voted to reject the application in December because of the Ministry of Defence's concerns over the impact on radar at RAF Staxton Wold.
