A teenager has appeared in court

:00:00.:00:14.

charged with the murder of a seven-year-old girl in York.

:00:15.:00:17.

Katie Rough was found with fatal injuries

:00:18.:00:18.

on a playing field on Monday and died later in hospital.

:00:19.:00:22.

A 15-year-old girl was today remanded into secure accommodation,

:00:23.:00:26.

and with possession of an offensive weapon.

:00:27.:00:29.

The family of Katie Rough at court this morning.

:00:30.:00:44.

The first sorrow filled duty of life without the seven-year-old.

:00:45.:00:46.

Katie seemingly had so much of her life still ahead

:00:47.:00:49.

She died here on Alness Drive, in the Woodthorpe area of York.

:00:50.:00:55.

The court heard today that she'd suffered significant lacerations

:00:56.:00:57.

Police investigations continued at the scene,

:00:58.:01:02.

with a metal detector used to search nearby undergrowth.

:01:03.:01:05.

Meanwhile, the pile of floral tributes grows.

:01:06.:01:11.

Four miles from the scene, the teenage girl accused

:01:12.:01:13.

of killing Katie appeared in court for the first time.

:01:14.:01:17.

The accused, who is 15 years old, nodded to show that she understood

:01:18.:01:20.

Members of Katie's family were also in court and some were visibly upset

:01:21.:01:25.

The teenager is charged with murdering Katie Rough

:01:26.:01:31.

on Alness Drive in York on Monday, and also

:01:32.:01:33.

with possession of a weapon - namely a knife.

:01:34.:01:36.

Outside Katie's School, the feeling remains one of shock.

:01:37.:01:39.

One of my good friend is really friends her mum,

:01:40.:01:54.

and she's taken it really hard, and so have her daughters,

:01:55.:01:57.

Tributes were paid here in York, and also in the House of Commons.

:01:58.:02:06.

I'm sure the whole house will join in

:02:07.:02:08.

heartfelt condolences for the family and friends of the tragic death

:02:09.:02:11.

of seven-year-old Katie Rough in York earlier this week.

:02:12.:02:13.

I also join the right honourable gentleman in expressing condolences

:02:14.:02:16.

to the family and friends of little Katie, who died so tragically.

:02:17.:02:21.

A fundraising page to support Katie's family has been set

:02:22.:02:24.

She didn't know the family, but says she wanted to help.

:02:25.:02:30.

It isn't just me. People all over are UK donating.

:02:31.:02:32.

It's in the heads and hearts of so many people.

:02:33.:02:39.

There's so much love for the family right now,

:02:40.:02:41.

Katie's family weren't speaking today.

:02:42.:02:45.

They already know the pain of what they've lost, but not why.

:02:46.:02:56.

A clear-up is continuing tonight after 70mph winds

:02:57.:02:58.

Thousands were left without power

:02:59.:03:01.

and buildings were damaged by the gales.

:03:02.:03:03.

Forecasters say more gales and snow are on the way.

:03:04.:03:07.

The winds had been enough to keep people awake,

:03:08.:03:12.

The cars parked beside the gable end were buried beneath the rubble.

:03:13.:03:19.

We've been awake nearly all night with the wind.

:03:20.:03:22.

With it being fenced, I can't get in to have a look and see

:03:23.:03:35.

This happened at Pelton in County Durham.

:03:36.:03:38.

In Newcastle city centre, there was disruption after damage

:03:39.:03:48.

to a roof had scattered debris across a street,

:03:49.:03:51.

And at their peak, the gusts had hit 75 mph.

:03:52.:03:54.

In the control room at Northern Power Grid near Sunderland,

:03:55.:03:57.

they battled to restore electricity to homes across the North.

:03:58.:03:59.

Over the course of the day, the staff here have dealt with

:04:00.:04:02.

more than 40,000 customers who have been without power.

:04:03.:04:04.

Gradually they whittled that number down so they've now restored

:04:05.:04:06.

all but more than a couple of thousand of them

:04:07.:04:09.

Now the work goes on to make sure everybody else gets

:04:10.:04:15.

We have to ramp up significantly for events like this.

:04:16.:04:19.

We're well versed and well practised in terms of the impact

:04:20.:04:22.

that the weather has on our power network across our region.

:04:23.:04:25.

But, yes, extra resources deployed across the entire organisation.

:04:26.:04:34.

And many people working outside of their primary roles to support

:04:35.:04:37.

those customers getting back on supply.

:04:38.:04:38.

On the west coast near Whitehaven, huge waves could be seen

:04:39.:04:41.

And at County Durham, a sign of just how bad things have been.

:04:42.:04:46.

A turbine unable to cope with the power of the wind.

:04:47.:04:52.

And we'll have a full weather forecast with Paul shortly.

:04:53.:04:56.

An American company that manufactures valves for

:04:57.:04:59.

the oil and gas industry in Gateshead is threatening

:05:00.:05:01.

to make 140 workers redundant, blaming the slump in the oil price.

:05:02.:05:05.

NOV Mission Products on the Team Valley Trading Estate

:05:06.:05:10.

made 180 redundancies in November and has now said it will cease

:05:11.:05:13.

manufacturing altogether later this year,

:05:14.:05:14.

putting a further 140 people out of work.

:05:15.:05:19.

The father of Claudia Lawrence has won his battle to allow families

:05:20.:05:23.

of people who have gone missing, to deal with their financial affairs

:05:24.:05:26.

Claudia, who was 35 and was from York,

:05:27.:05:29.

The bill was championed by Claudia's father, Peter.

:05:30.:05:36.

Dubbed Claudia's Law, it was given the go-ahead

:05:37.:05:38.

in Parliament today, without opposition.

:05:39.:05:45.

We've just about got to the stage that we're at.

:05:46.:05:48.

You've got to remember, it's 22 months ago that the government

:05:49.:05:52.

committed to this bill, and it's taken a private member,

:05:53.:05:55.

Kevin Hollinrake, one of our local MPs,

:05:56.:05:56.

for Thirsk and Malton, to bring it forward himself.

:05:57.:06:01.

And as we know, it's got government support now.

:06:02.:06:05.

A Sunderland man is calling for smear tests to be made

:06:06.:06:08.

available for the under-25s following the death of his sister.

:06:09.:06:10.

Josh Cliff says Amber asked to be screened,

:06:11.:06:12.

She was eventually diagnosed with cervical cancer

:06:13.:06:17.

You have a normal Christmas, everything was really nice.

:06:18.:06:30.

So happy, just laughing, making jokes.

:06:31.:06:32.

You've either got to do something about it, or...

:06:33.:06:49.

You've just got to sit and grieve,

:06:50.:06:51.

Amber Cliff died just a few days ago.

:06:52.:06:56.

which spread to her lungs and throat.

:06:57.:07:01.

Her brother said she had had the symptoms for two years

:07:02.:07:04.

But doctors had blamed it on other health issues.

:07:05.:07:12.

She'd also requested a smera test to rule out cancer,

:07:13.:07:16.

--smear test, but despite repeated visits to the doctor

:07:17.:07:19.

she had been told she was too young.

:07:20.:07:21.

Eventually private tests revealed she had a tumour.

:07:22.:07:24.

Now her family are campaigning for smears to

:07:25.:07:26.

The problem is, there are no guidelines.

:07:27.:07:29.

The GPs who have said I would have given a smear test.

:07:30.:07:43.

Unfortunately, her GP did not give her a smear test

:07:44.:07:45.

We need a law right across the board so that if somebody

:07:46.:07:52.

is coming in with certain symptoms they can have a smear test.

:07:53.:07:55.

Public Health England said the reason why women under 25

:07:56.:07:58.

aren't routinely screened is because changes in their bodies often give

:07:59.:08:06.

false test results, and that can lead to procedures

:08:07.:08:08.

Josh has started an online petition to get the subject

:08:09.:08:12.

But he says the publicity around his campaign

:08:13.:08:15.

has already made other women look to get screened.

:08:16.:08:17.

The amount of people commenting on Facebook

:08:18.:08:18.

They don't like the idea of going for one.

:08:19.:08:28.

But that 30 seconds or however long it takes,

:08:29.:08:31.

and stop your family going through this.

:08:32.:08:35.

That's what I'm trying to get across,

:08:36.:08:39.

Well, elsewhere, plans for a new ?10 million cancer centre

:08:40.:08:45.

in North Yorkshire have gone on display.

:08:46.:08:48.

It would mean that more people could be treated

:08:49.:08:50.

at Northallerton's Friarage hospital, avoiding the journey

:08:51.:08:52.

to Middlesbrough's James Cook for appointments.

:08:53.:08:55.

The building would be named after Sir Robert Ogden,

:08:56.:08:58.

who's jointly funding the project with Macmillan Cancer Care.

:08:59.:09:03.

When you think of what you're going through, the psychological effects

:09:04.:09:08.

of all the things, you've been in dull rooms,

:09:09.:09:10.

waiting for results and waiting for scans

:09:11.:09:12.

and things like that, to try to get a facility

:09:13.:09:14.

that's got as much going as this has,

:09:15.:09:16.

to make you feel a lot better about, you know...

:09:17.:09:19.

It's not going to change what's happening

:09:20.:09:21.

but it can make you feel a lot more positive.

:09:22.:09:24.

We saw what the gales did last night.

:09:25.:09:29.

Those disrupt their wings have eased slightly but there are still win,

:09:30.:09:41.

ice and snow to add that the problems over the next couple of

:09:42.:09:45.

days -- Bosz disruptive wins. We have a severe weather warning for

:09:46.:09:49.

Cumbria and the North East for the risk of snow over the next few days.

:09:50.:09:52.

There's a covering of snow in places. Especially across parts of

:09:53.:10:00.

Cumbria, the uplands of Northumberland and County Durham.

:10:01.:10:05.

Temperatures close to freezing leading to icy patches. Not as windy

:10:06.:10:08.

as it was but still a brisk westerly. Sunshine and showers

:10:09.:10:14.

tomorrow. Sleet and snow and amongst those bringing a further covering in

:10:15.:10:19.

some places. But those showers become fewer and further between as

:10:20.:10:23.

we head through the afternoon. Temperatures struggling up four

:10:24.:10:27.

Celsius at the very best. And a brisk westerly wind feeling cold.

:10:28.:10:33.

Starting tomorrow evening dry, then we have this area of cloud coming

:10:34.:10:37.

from the north, possibly bringing further snow to parts of the

:10:38.:10:40.

north-east and Yorkshire as we head through the night tomorrow night.

:10:41.:10:45.

Temperatures again hovering round about just below freezing, so some

:10:46.:10:49.

icy stretches to watch out for as we head Friday. The game, the odd sleet

:10:50.:10:55.

or snow shower in eastern areas, things becoming a little bit milder

:10:56.:10:59.

as we head into Sunday. I'll leave you with the

:11:00.:11:01.

potentially leading us into a chilly start to the weekend. Time for the

:11:02.:11:06.

national weather prospects if you are on the move.

:11:07.:11:11.

Good evening, a lot going on with the weather in the next few days,

:11:12.:11:16.

numerous weather warnings in for so buried in mind if you have travel

:11:17.:11:19.

plans. Lots of isobars on the chart overnight which means it will be

:11:20.:11:23.

windy for all. The strongest winds in Scotland, lots of wintry showers

:11:24.:11:26.

with snow getting down to increasingly low levels and some

:11:27.:11:29.

wintry showers in Northern Ireland and northern England. A cold night

:11:30.:11:33.

for Northern England, particularly in more rural spots, frosty and I

:11:34.:11:39.

see for some and some of the snow really blowing around over higher

:11:40.:11:41.

ground in Scotland. Strong wind and further snow to take us into

:11:42.:11:43.

tomorrow. It may

:11:44.:11:44.
