Good afternoon. for the news where you are.

:00:16.:00:16.

First this lunchtime, a warning of "self-selected apartheid" at some

:00:17.:00:18.

The author of a Government report has told Look North that racial

:00:19.:00:22.

segregation is holding back children's progress.

:00:23.:00:24.

Sir Nick Weller says schools should consider changing their admissions

:00:25.:00:26.

codes to bring in a more diverse mix of pupils.

:00:27.:00:28.

It's known as monoculturalism - one school where almost

:00:29.:00:32.

all the children are white and another, perhaps just down

:00:33.:00:34.

the road, where almost all are from ethnic minorities.

:00:35.:00:39.

Sir Nick Weller runs an Academy Trust in Bradford,

:00:40.:00:41.

He has written a report for the Government on how to improve

:00:42.:00:48.

education across the North of England, and he says there's

:00:49.:00:51.

a problem with parents choosing schools that

:00:52.:00:52.

Very often, you get a situation where families choose

:00:53.:00:58.

not to send their child to their closest school.

:00:59.:01:00.

If it doesn't predominantly serve the community where they come from,

:01:01.:01:03.

they will often drive past it or walk past it or bus past

:01:04.:01:20.

it to a school that's slightly further away.

:01:21.:01:22.

Parents have a right to choose, I'm not trying to circumvent that,

:01:23.:01:25.

but I think we should do what we can to encourage a greater mix,

:01:26.:01:28.

because that kind of self-selected apartheid is not a healthy position

:01:29.:01:31.

for any town or city to find itself in.

:01:32.:01:33.

This school admits children from across the whole of Bradford

:01:34.:01:35.

and uses randomised selection to try to create a more

:01:36.:01:38.

Firstly, I think it prepares them better

:01:39.:01:41.

for their later life, because, you know, we share

:01:42.:01:43.

the same city and, you know, we should be educated together

:01:44.:01:45.

as well as live and work together later.

:01:46.:01:49.

It also means that children come into contact with different

:01:50.:01:52.

cultures, different levels of aspiration, different ambitions,

:01:53.:01:54.

and I think that kind of mix is very, very healthy,

:01:55.:01:56.

because it rubs off on all children from all backgrounds.

:01:57.:01:58.

Reducing monoculturalism is just one of Sir Nick's 27 recommendations

:01:59.:02:02.

Making it happen will require plenty of hard work.

:02:03.:02:13.

A man who was found murdered in a house in Scarborough last week

:02:14.:02:16.

has been named by North Yorkshire Police.

:02:17.:02:18.

Shaun Atkinson who was forty nine was found in his home

:02:19.:02:21.

in St John's Avenue early in the morning on December the 27th.

:02:22.:02:26.

Paramedics say he was dead at the scene.

:02:27.:02:28.

Two men appeared in court on the 29th charged with his murder.

:02:29.:02:33.

Investigations are continuing to identify the body of a man found

:02:34.:02:36.

Police were called by a member of the public to Holly Terrace opposite

:02:37.:02:40.

Officers are trying to find out how he came to be in the river.

:02:41.:02:51.

One of Sheffield's original campaigning Women of Steel has died.

:02:52.:02:53.

Dorothy Slingsby was one of the four women behind the city's campaign

:02:54.:02:56.

to get official recognition for the women who kept

:02:57.:03:00.

the steelworks running and producing during the wars.

:03:01.:03:02.

She passed away on Christmas Eve, aged 95.

:03:03.:03:05.

The team behind Hull's year as City of Culture say it's going to welcome

:03:06.:03:10.

Thousands of people watched the opening event last night

:03:11.:03:15.

and more than 80,000 are expected from across Yorkshire and the UK

:03:16.:03:19.

to watch the week-long light and sound spectacular.

:03:20.:03:21.

Our culture correspondent Anne-Marie Tasker reports.

:03:22.:03:26.

It took 500 hours to plan, but just 12 minutes to perform -

:03:27.:03:31.

the firework show that City of Culture promised would be bigger

:03:32.:03:33.

25,000 people packed in to see Hull start its year in the spotlight.

:03:34.:03:45.

It's like being in a completely different city, like a foreign city,

:03:46.:03:48.

you know, we were just saying, it's really nice, everyone's

:03:49.:03:51.

We've come all the way from South Africa to see

:03:52.:03:56.

the fireworks, to visit, and it's such an amazing place.

:03:57.:03:58.

And the fireworks have been spectacular.

:03:59.:04:00.

After more than three years of planning, City

:04:01.:04:06.

of Culture is finally here, and with 15,000 fireworks

:04:07.:04:09.

exploding above the Humber, it really is starting with a bang.

:04:10.:04:12.

It feels great, when you're in my game, you love the planning bit,

:04:13.:04:18.

but you love when you start the show and the team have worked really hard

:04:19.:04:22.

and the city council have planned so hard and got this stage ready

:04:23.:04:25.

for us, so it's always great to just take up the curtain and open.

:04:26.:04:33.

And this was the curtain-raiser - the week-long opening event Made

:04:34.:04:37.

in Hull, a look back at a century of the city's history,

:04:38.:04:42.

light and sound recreating moments like the Blitz,

:04:43.:04:45.

the annual Hull Fair and Hull City's Premier League promotion.

:04:46.:04:50.

3.5 tonnes of fireworks helped City of Culture get off

:04:51.:04:53.

The year's organisers promised 364 more unforgettable days.

:04:54.:05:10.

There's been a busy afternoon of football, including a Yorkshire

:05:11.:05:13.

derby between Leeds and Rotherham at Elland Road.

:05:14.:05:15.

After a goalless first half, Leeds took control to win it three nil,

:05:16.:05:20.

Conor Hourihane grabbed a late winner for Barnsley

:05:21.:05:23.

Sheffield Wednesday drew 0-0 with Wolves,

:05:24.:05:26.

while Huddersfield remain fourth, Nakhi Wells getting

:05:27.:05:27.

Sheffield United had to come from behind at Bury,

:05:28.:05:36.

but in the end won comfortably 3-1 to stay top of league one.

:05:37.:05:39.

Chesterfield drew 0-0 with MK Dons and after a host of draws,

:05:40.:05:42.

Bradford City got back to winning ways.

:05:43.:05:48.

And in league two, an own goal gave Doncaster Rovers

:05:49.:05:52.

the win over Stevenage, and that takes them back

:05:53.:05:54.

It was icy this morning and I nearly fell over!

:05:55.:06:21.

It looks like tomorrow will be a cloudier affair. It will be windy

:06:22.:06:28.

tomorrow and then this cold front introduces clearer air from the

:06:29.:06:34.

northwest and Wednesday sees a return to clear, blue skies.

:06:35.:06:37.

Thursday looks fine, Friday will see rain from the west and we see how

:06:38.:06:43.

much clear weather we've had but there is more cloud heading our way.

:06:44.:06:51.

Temperatures fell like we've already got a frost on the ground as the

:06:52.:06:54.

night goes on. Thicker cloud into the west with the spot of rain and

:06:55.:07:01.

the wide slight frost and rural temperatures down to -1 or minus two

:07:02.:07:12.

Celsius. The sun rises at age 20 4am -- 8:24am. More cloud across the

:07:13.:07:20.

Pennines and the odd spot of drizzle and it will filter eastwards through

:07:21.:07:26.

the course of the day so the best of the brightness in the afternoon,

:07:27.:07:29.

still cloudy in the east and dampness over the Pennines.

:07:30.:07:32.

Temperatures will be higher tomorrow but when you factor in the fresh

:07:33.:07:36.

westerly wind, it will feel fairly chilly, top temperatures around

:07:37.:07:37.

seven Celsius, that's around four or seven Celsius, that's around four or

:07:38.:07:43.

five degrees Fahrenheit. Wednesday sees a return to clear blue skies,

:07:44.:07:47.

fine on Thursday and lose the Campbelltown wet on Friday -- it

:07:48.:07:51.

looks like it will turn wet. We're back at 10:20pm later.

:07:52.:07:58.

Bye-bye. Good evening. It has been turning

:07:59.:08:12.

colder and clearer and our weather watchers have been capturing the

:08:13.:08:16.

sunshine. Here is the scene in Derbyshire and where we have had the

:08:17.:08:20.

clear skies by day, we are in for a cold night tonight. Temperatures

:08:21.:08:25.

already plummeting, particularly towards the south with some icy

:08:26.:08:29.

stretches across parts of central and southern England, and into

:08:30.:08:33.

Wales. For the north-west, not as cold, as we have the cloud building.

:08:34.:08:38.

But to the south we could see temperatures down to minus four or

:08:39.:08:42.

five first thing Tuesday morning. If you have a commute back to work,

:08:43.:08:47.

bear in mind you will have to scrape the car and there could be the odd

:08:48.:08:51.

patch of mist and freezing fog. But many of us staying dry. More cloud

:08:52.:08:56.

in the north and west. Some rain

:08:57.:08:58.
