The family of a teenage girl who died in a car crash in Howden
in East Yorkshire have told BBC Look North that other young people
must think before getting in a car.
16-year-old Levi Dickinson from Selby was killed
alongside 17-year-old Rhogan Jones from Goole.
The 19-year-old driver was arrested and released on police bail.
Kate Sweeting reports.
17-year-old Rhogan Jones from Goole and 16-year-old Levi Dickinson
from Selby were passengers in a car when it hit a tree.
Both died at the scene.
The world came crashing down then, because I knew, I knew.
Because she never, never, doesn't answer her phone.
Always, she always...
And I tried it 40 times that night.
Today, Levi's family told me she was a special girl.
Levi was fun.
I think she could come in on the darkest of days
and make you smile.
She never saw bad in anybody, no matter...
It didn't matter who they was, whether they'd said anything bad
to her, she would never say anything bad about them.
She was infectious.
She was, very infectious.
Tonight, they had a stark warning for young drivers and passengers.
You've got to know the driver, you've got to be able
to trust the driver.
Just stay safe.
Wear a seat belt, make sure you know the driver and...
I don't know.
Both teenagers have been described as popular,
and mourners have left floral tributes at the crash scene.
Tonight, Levi's church in Selby held a remembrance service for her.
But her family say they hope their warning will encourage other
teenagers to think before they get in a car.
Exploding phone chargers sold by a discount company in Hull have
led Trading Standards officers to warn businesses to carry out
proper safety checks on all their products.
Home Bargains continued to sell the chargers for months
before recalling them.
Katy Austin has more.
It looks handy - a charger that can take two cables at once.
This own-brand product was sold by Home Bargains,
until one ended up like this the first time it was used.
It did explode.
It overheated and it couldn't retain its shape, basically.
So it had blown apart.
It was bought at this store in Hull, and the shopper took it straight
to Trading Standards, who say it's lucky no-one was hurt.
Most homes are protected by circuit breakers.
However, those that aren't may have overheated,
and there could've been a fire risk.
Trading Standards told Home Bargains that a charger
bought here had exploded in the same month it was bought
in October 2015.
There were about 38,000 of them on the shelves of Home Bargains
stores across the country, but the company didn't stop
selling them until January 2016, after further tests
by Hull Trading Standards confirmed the chargers were unsafe.
They had a safety certificate from China, but tests showed
the chargers didn't meet UK safety standards.
They were recalled, and earlier this month,
Home Bargains admitted three electrical safety offences at
Hull Magistrates' Court.
It was fined more than ?22,000.
In the last few years, there has been a lot
of similar cases of these sort of charger products failing.
Which means that companies should take greater precautions and carry
out a greater number of checks to prevent these sort of things
coming into the country.
TJ Morris, trading as Home Bargains turned down our interview request,
but in a statement it said...
Anyone who still has one of these chargers is advised to send it
back to Home Bargains.
Seven teenagers with learning disabilities are being offered
the chance of permanent jobs with the engineering company Siemens
at its blade factory in Hull.
Nationally, fewer than one in ten people with a learning disability
will manage to find work, and some experts suggest the situation
is getting worse.
Our business correspondent Leanne Brown has more.
Where's this blade going?
This blade will be going to the North Sea somewhere.
Getting their first tour of the site and the world of work.
This group of young people with severe learning difficulies
are at the beginning of their journey towards employment.
We're seeing them coming out of their shells.
One of our young people, Leah, the first time
I met her she wouldn't even make eye contact with me.
Today, she actually called me by my name.
She was laughing and that is a huge step forward.
Hello, Siemens reception, Salim speaking.
The new intake get the opportunity to try different roles
within the company to see what suits them best.
I tried security for the last few weeks.
Then I got into reception.
You get to see the first people before they get in and make
the impression for Siemens itself.
And they are supported by mentors from the University of Hull.
He's so good, it's really surprising.
He's already made an impression on a lot of people.
His personality reflects on everybody.
As soon as he walks in the room, that's it, everybody's smiling.
Those leading the project say with the right support
they have a lot to offer.
They've got a wide range of different needs, ranging
from autism through to global delay.
It's almost impossible for young people with special
educational needs to get employment.
They want to work.
When I talk to employers, one of the things they most want
is reliable employees who want to work and enjoy coming
to work, and our young people do.
Only one other company in the UK offers this kind of training.
Ann has been trying out some office duties, but eventually wants
to work with animals.
I've been sorting out letters, writing the names.
Cutting and stapling.
It helps you to find a job, to get some good reference.
Siemens are now hoping that other businesses will come and see
what they're doing and replicate it.
Now the weather forecast with Keeley Donovan.
Hello there, good evening.
A cold, grey weekend to come.
Wintry in places too, we'll see some snow.
We could get a couple centimetres tonight
and into Sunday over the Wolds.
Some slushy deposits in lower levels, you can
see how these showers become more widespread later.
It's the Wolds really that will get a covering,
elsewhere, just bits and pieces.
But with the frost, there will be slippery surfaces into tomorrow.
Tomorrow looks a cold, grey day with rain and sleet
showers throughout the day, quite a number of them.
It really will feel cold, even though numerically it will be
a little higher than today, around 5 degrees.
An mixture of rain, sleet and again snow showers overnight into Sunday.
Typically, the Wolds will get another couple of centimetres,
and it is cold to start next week.
That's all for now, we'll be back with your
tea-time bulletin tomorrow.
Have a very good evening.
