Can anyone look up newspaper archives in Hull? Pl

I have recently found out that my great grandfather, Edward Eggett, died on Albert Dock, Hull on 26 February 1908 when run over by a railyway engine! Poor chap. I feel that it might have warranted a mention in the local newspaper and wonder how I might find out without a visit to Hull (I live in Eastbourne, a tad too far to travel). Can anyone help at all? I would be grateful. Sue Storey
