The family of a teenage girl who died in a car crash in Howden

0:00:270:00:30

in East Yorkshire have told BBC Look North that other young people

0:00:300:00:33

must think before getting in a car.

0:00:330:00:35

16-year-old Levi Dickinson from Selby was killed

0:00:350:00:36

alongside 17-year-old Rhogan Jones from Goole.

0:00:360:00:38

The 19-year-old driver was arrested and released on police bail.

0:00:380:00:40

Kate Sweeting reports.

0:00:400:00:41

17-year-old Rhogan Jones from Goole and 16-year-old Levi Dickinson

0:00:410:00:44

from Selby were passengers in a car when it hit a tree.

0:00:440:00:46

Both died at the scene.

0:00:460:00:48

The world came crashing down then, because I knew, I knew.

0:00:480:00:50

Because she never, never, doesn't answer her phone.

0:00:500:00:52

Always, she always...

0:00:520:00:53

And I tried it 40 times that night.

0:00:530:00:55

Today, Levi's family told me she was a special girl.

0:00:550:00:58

Levi was fun.

0:00:580:01:00

Very fun.

0:01:000:01:03

I think she could come in on the darkest of days

0:01:030:01:06

and make you smile.

0:01:060:01:08

She never saw bad in anybody, no matter...

0:01:080:01:10

It didn't matter who they was, whether they'd said anything bad

0:01:100:01:13

to her, she would never say anything bad about them.

0:01:130:01:15

She was...

0:01:150:01:19

She was infectious.

0:01:190:01:22

She was, very infectious.

0:01:220:01:24

Tonight, they had a stark warning for young drivers and passengers.

0:01:240:01:27

You've got to know the driver, you've got to be able

0:01:270:01:31

to trust the driver.

0:01:310:01:32

Just stay safe.

0:01:320:01:34

Wear a seat belt, make sure you know the driver and...

0:01:340:01:36

I don't know.

0:01:360:01:40

Both teenagers have been described as popular,

0:01:400:01:42

and mourners have left floral tributes at the crash scene.

0:01:420:01:45

Tonight, Levi's church in Selby held a remembrance service for her.

0:01:450:01:49

But her family say they hope their warning will encourage other

0:01:490:01:53

teenagers to think before they get in a car.

0:01:530:02:00

Exploding phone chargers sold by a discount company in Hull have

0:02:000:02:03

led Trading Standards officers to warn businesses to carry out

0:02:030:02:06

proper safety checks on all their products.

0:02:060:02:09

Home Bargains continued to sell the chargers for months

0:02:090:02:12

before recalling them.

0:02:120:02:14

Katy Austin has more.

0:02:140:02:16

It looks handy - a charger that can take two cables at once.

0:02:160:02:20

This own-brand product was sold by Home Bargains,

0:02:200:02:24

until one ended up like this the first time it was used.

0:02:240:02:27

It did explode.

0:02:270:02:29

It overheated and it couldn't retain its shape, basically.

0:02:290:02:35

So it had blown apart.

0:02:350:02:39

It was bought at this store in Hull, and the shopper took it straight

0:02:390:02:42

to Trading Standards, who say it's lucky no-one was hurt.

0:02:420:02:45

Most homes are protected by circuit breakers.

0:02:450:02:52

However, those that aren't may have overheated,

0:02:520:02:54

and there could've been a fire risk.

0:02:540:02:59

Trading Standards told Home Bargains that a charger

0:02:590:03:01

bought here had exploded in the same month it was bought

0:03:010:03:04

in October 2015.

0:03:040:03:05

There were about 38,000 of them on the shelves of Home Bargains

0:03:050:03:08

stores across the country, but the company didn't stop

0:03:080:03:10

selling them until January 2016, after further tests

0:03:100:03:12

by Hull Trading Standards confirmed the chargers were unsafe.

0:03:120:03:18

They had a safety certificate from China, but tests showed

0:03:180:03:21

the chargers didn't meet UK safety standards.

0:03:210:03:24

They were recalled, and earlier this month,

0:03:240:03:26

Home Bargains admitted three electrical safety offences at

0:03:260:03:29

Hull Magistrates' Court.

0:03:300:03:31

It was fined more than ?22,000.

0:03:310:03:35

In the last few years, there has been a lot

0:03:350:03:37

of similar cases of these sort of charger products failing.

0:03:370:03:40

Which means that companies should take greater precautions and carry

0:03:400:03:43

out a greater number of checks to prevent these sort of things

0:03:430:03:48

coming into the country.

0:03:480:03:50

TJ Morris, trading as Home Bargains turned down our interview request,

0:03:500:03:53

but in a statement it said...

0:03:530:03:54

Anyone who still has one of these chargers is advised to send it

0:04:020:04:05

back to Home Bargains.

0:04:050:04:11

Seven teenagers with learning disabilities are being offered

0:04:110:04:13

the chance of permanent jobs with the engineering company Siemens

0:04:130:04:17

at its blade factory in Hull.

0:04:170:04:19

Nationally, fewer than one in ten people with a learning disability

0:04:190:04:22

will manage to find work, and some experts suggest the situation

0:04:220:04:25

is getting worse.

0:04:250:04:27

Our business correspondent Leanne Brown has more.

0:04:270:04:30

Where's this blade going?

0:04:300:04:32

This blade will be going to the North Sea somewhere.

0:04:320:04:34

Getting their first tour of the site and the world of work.

0:04:340:04:38

This group of young people with severe learning difficulies

0:04:380:04:40

are at the beginning of their journey towards employment.

0:04:400:04:44

We're seeing them coming out of their shells.

0:04:440:04:46

One of our young people, Leah, the first time

0:04:460:04:49

I met her she wouldn't even make eye contact with me.

0:04:490:04:52

Today, she actually called me by my name.

0:04:520:04:55

She was laughing and that is a huge step forward.

0:04:550:04:59

Hello, Siemens reception, Salim speaking.

0:04:590:05:01

The new intake get the opportunity to try different roles

0:05:010:05:04

within the company to see what suits them best.

0:05:040:05:07

I tried security for the last few weeks.

0:05:070:05:10

Then I got into reception.

0:05:100:05:11

You get to see the first people before they get in and make

0:05:110:05:15

the impression for Siemens itself.

0:05:150:05:16

And they are supported by mentors from the University of Hull.

0:05:160:05:21

He's so good, it's really surprising.

0:05:210:05:23

He's already made an impression on a lot of people.

0:05:230:05:26

His personality reflects on everybody.

0:05:260:05:27

As soon as he walks in the room, that's it, everybody's smiling.

0:05:270:05:30

Those leading the project say with the right support

0:05:300:05:33

they have a lot to offer.

0:05:330:05:34

They've got a wide range of different needs, ranging

0:05:340:05:38

from autism through to global delay.

0:05:380:05:40

It's almost impossible for young people with special

0:05:400:05:43

educational needs to get employment.

0:05:430:05:47

They want to work.

0:05:470:05:49

When I talk to employers, one of the things they most want

0:05:490:05:53

is reliable employees who want to work and enjoy coming

0:05:530:05:55

to work, and our young people do.

0:05:560:05:57

Only one other company in the UK offers this kind of training.

0:05:570:06:00

Ann has been trying out some office duties, but eventually wants

0:06:000:06:03

to work with animals.

0:06:030:06:06

I've been sorting out letters, writing the names.

0:06:060:06:09

Cutting and stapling.

0:06:090:06:14

It helps you to find a job, to get some good reference.

0:06:140:06:18

Siemens are now hoping that other businesses will come and see

0:06:180:06:21

what they're doing and replicate it.

0:06:210:06:28

Now the weather forecast with Keeley Donovan.

0:06:280:06:33

Hello there, good evening.

0:06:330:06:34

A cold, grey weekend to come.

0:06:340:06:35

Wintry in places too, we'll see some snow.

0:06:350:06:37

We could get a couple centimetres tonight

0:06:370:06:39

and into Sunday over the Wolds.

0:06:390:06:43

Some slushy deposits in lower levels, you can

0:06:430:06:45

see how these showers become more widespread later.

0:06:450:06:48

It's the Wolds really that will get a covering,

0:06:480:06:51

elsewhere, just bits and pieces.

0:06:510:06:53

But with the frost, there will be slippery surfaces into tomorrow.

0:06:530:06:56

Tomorrow looks a cold, grey day with rain and sleet

0:06:560:07:00

showers throughout the day, quite a number of them.

0:07:000:07:03

It really will feel cold, even though numerically it will be

0:07:030:07:06

a little higher than today, around 5 degrees.

0:07:060:07:11

An mixture of rain, sleet and again snow showers overnight into Sunday.

0:07:110:07:15

Typically, the Wolds will get another couple of centimetres,

0:07:150:07:18

and it is cold to start next week.

0:07:180:07:21

That's all for now, we'll be back with your

0:07:210:07:24

tea-time bulletin tomorrow.

0:07:240:07:26

Have a very good evening.
