of officers "swarming" around a group of vehicles,

bullet holes on the windscreen. Today, forensics teams and

:02:40.:02:46.

investigators were working behind screens on the carriageway which was

:02:47.:02:53.

shut for 24 hours. When I looked over, everything had stood still, it

:02:54.:02:58.

was like surreal. I didn't hear the shooting and didn't see the

:02:59.:03:03.

shooting, but I did the car boxed in and then I saw some big policemen

:03:04.:03:10.

and some police with black outfits. The man who died is 28-year-old

:03:11.:03:17.

Yassar Yaqub, a father of two from Huddersfield. This afternoon,

:03:18.:03:20.

flowers were taken to the family home by relatives and friends who

asked for their privacy to be respected. One witness caught up in

the drama last night described what he saw. There were rapid response

ambulances turned up, some of the policemen told them to get down as

needed urgent medical help. Three people were arrested at the scene of

the incident. Two more were detained at chain bar near Bradford.

:03:52.:03:55.

Information received about a criminal possession of a firearm has

:03:56.:04:01.

been updated to the Chief Constable. Well fatal shootings are rear, there

:04:02.:04:09.

have been 22 in England and Wales over the last decade and this is the

:04:10.:04:13.

first involving West Yorkshire Police since 2010. With the

:04:14.:04:20.

investigation in the hands of the Independent Police Complaints

:04:21.:04:21.

Commission, West Yorkshire Police say it would be inappropriate to

:04:22.:04:23.

make any further comment at this time.

:04:24.:04:25.

Yassar Yaqub is a 28-day-old father from Huddersfield. Friends have been

:04:26.:04:44.

paying tribute on social media, describing him as a diamond, the

:04:45.:04:49.

life and soul of the party. One people wrote comedy were no angel,

:04:50.:04:52.

but you still of the good guys. But we also know that yesterday Yassar

:04:53.:04:58.

Yaqub appeared in court in 2010 on two charges of attempted murder and

:04:59.:05:06.

one of possessing a fireman -- firearm with intent to endanger

:05:07.:05:10.

life. He was found not guilty on all counts. A statement through the

:05:11.:05:21.

family lawyer, they say they are in shock and ask the media to respect

:05:22.:05:24.

their privacy at what they describe as the very difficult time. Whenever

:05:25.:05:31.

a firearm is discharged by the police, there is an automatic

:05:32.:05:34.

investigation but there has been one important development this

:05:35.:05:39.

afternoon. In the last hour, the Independent police completes

:05:40.:05:48.

commission have said, a nonpolice issue firearm was discovered in a

:05:49.:05:51.

vehicle in which Yassar Yaqub was travelling and that is now being

:05:52.:05:57.

examined, subject to further investigation, and we know that a

:05:58.:06:00.

postmortem is due to take place tomorrow. you mentioned in your

:06:01.:06:03.

report the use of firearms by police.

:06:04.:06:05.

Well, in the last eight years there have been 40 incidents

:06:06.:06:07.

where police have fired weapons at people.

:06:08.:06:11.

The police maintain it's always a last resort and they only shoot

:06:12.:06:14.

when they believe they or other members of the public

:06:15.:06:16.

Our reporter Spencer Stokes has been speaking to a former firearms

:06:17.:06:20.

Police firing at and killing members of the public is something that

:06:21.:06:26.

The armed officers involved in last night's events will have attended

:06:27.:06:37.

many such incidents that have ended peacefully.

:06:38.:06:39.

Their job is to protect the detectives and the general public.

:06:40.:06:42.

The decision to fire last night would have been made

:06:43.:06:44.

Nick Rothwell is a former firearms commander with West Yorkshire Police

:06:45.:06:54.

and knows the pressures the highly trained officers are under.

:06:55.:06:59.

How quickly do decisions have to be made?

:07:00.:07:02.

A set of circumstances will present themselves,

:07:03.:07:08.

where and when to stop a vehicle, and something will then can

:07:09.:07:15.

-- occur and the officers probably have about half a second to make

:07:16.:07:19.

a decision as to whether to fire a weapon or not.

:07:20.:07:25.

It's the first time since 2010 that West Yorkshire Police have shot

:07:26.:07:28.

Come to the door and speak to the officers,

:07:29.:07:36.

Alistair Bell was fatally injured after he fired at police

:07:37.:07:40.

from his home in Kirkheaton in December 2010, and in 2009,

:07:41.:07:44.

Bartholomew Buckley was shot by the force in Brickhouse.

:07:45.:07:49.

Across England and Wales in the last eight years,

:07:50.:07:53.

police forces have used firearms on 40 separate occasions,

:07:54.:07:56.

that's five shootings every year on average.

:07:57.:08:01.

At its most extreme, it is possibly who pulls the trigger

:08:02.:08:04.

Quick decisions have to be made and these are reflected over a long

:08:05.:08:17.

period of time but the officers have probably less than a second to make

:08:18.:08:21.

to make these life-changing and perhaps career-changing decisions.

:08:22.:08:25.

Last night's incident was related to desertion of a firearm and gun

:08:26.:08:29.

crime across West Yorkshire is the fourth highest

:08:30.:08:31.

In 2014 and 15, there were 221 gun related offences.

:08:32.:08:40.

That's a 12% fall over the previous five years.

:08:41.:08:46.

Yasser Yaqoub now joins a list of 22 other fatal police shooting is over

:08:47.:08:49.

the last decade in England and Wales, a shooting that

:08:50.:08:53.

for the officers involved is always a last resort.

:08:54.:09:04.

More information will be revealed over the next few hours. Behind me,

:09:05.:09:12.

feel -- vehicle recovery vehicles have arrived. There is speculation

:09:13.:09:20.

as to when this junction will open by the investigation will continue

:09:21.:09:23.

and we will let you know that as soon as we possibly can. For the

:09:24.:09:25.

moment, back to the studio. Well, in other news,

:09:26.:09:29.

the pioneering Tram Train project in South Yorkshire won't be up

:09:30.:09:36.

and running until the summer of 2018 They say they're having to create

:09:37.:09:39.

new ways of powering the vehicles. Last year we revealed how

:09:40.:09:44.

a series of hold-ups meant the service wouldn't begin this

:09:45.:09:47.

month as planned. And now the transport minister

:09:48.:09:48.

Andrew Jones says the pilot has Tom Ingall has this

:09:49.:09:52.

exclusive report. By the light of the winter sun,

:09:53.:10:00.

a transport revolution is taking shape, albeit much

:10:01.:10:03.

slower than expected. At the terminus, just like elsewhere

:10:04.:10:08.

along this new line, The platform is half-built,

:10:09.:10:11.

the rails have been laid but by now I should be able to step off a tram

:10:12.:10:21.

train and head to the shopping centre over there but I can't

:10:22.:10:25.

because there have been delays. They've been caused by problems

:10:26.:10:27.

with how to build the overhead line These masts will carry

:10:28.:10:30.

the power lines. The trams work at one voltage

:10:31.:10:33.

but if one day mainline electric trains need to run here,

:10:34.:10:36.

their power requirements To avoid spending money on something

:10:37.:10:38.

that could become redundant, new ideas are being tried out

:10:39.:10:43.

and that's what's taking time. There's a pilot and solutions that

:10:44.:10:50.

are needed for this project. That's why we've got a view to come

:10:51.:10:54.

up with new solutions and we have a plan to implement it

:10:55.:10:57.

over the next few months and years. The new vehicles for the project

:10:58.:11:01.

were built in Spain and have now There are seven in total

:11:02.:11:04.

and they will supplement the existing tram fleet but the tram

:11:12.:11:15.

break out of Sheffield. They will run on conventional tram

tracks and switch to train mode It promises what is called

:11:18.:11:23.

the seamless commute with other It has taken far too long to deliver

:11:24.:11:28.

and I'm extremely frustrated by it. We have seen a lot of new vehicles

:11:29.:11:35.

arrive and are being tested now and Network Rail are busy building

:11:36.:11:41.

the infrastructure but we have been talking about this project

:11:42.:11:44.

in Yorkshire for a long time and I'm looking forward for when it finally

:11:45.:11:47.

opens and we get people Proving the concept of trams

:11:48.:11:50.

and trains sharing tracks It will only be a short extension

:11:51.:11:53.

but the possibilities are clear - first, though, Network Rail need

:11:54.:12:00.

to overcome repeated The good Samaritan who abandoned his

Everest attempt to save another climber's life gets another go.

:12:26.:12:31.

Police have named the man whose body was found in the River Ouse

:12:32.:12:34.

He's been identified as 42-year-old Craig Batters, who was from York.

:12:35.:12:39.

Detectives are now trying to piece together his last movements before

:12:40.:12:43.

he was found by a member of the public in the river

A help line for people affected by domestic abuse in South Yorkshire

:12:47.:12:54.

More than 2,000 people called Sheffield Domestic Abuse last year.

:12:55.:13:01.

It's funded by Sheffield City Council.

:13:02.:13:03.

It'll now be open from eight in the morning until eight

:13:04.:13:05.

We don't know yet whether or not we need to go to 24 hours,

:13:06.:13:10.

that's why we're doing it a bit at a time, so hopefully

:13:11.:13:13.

by making the service, extending the hours,

:13:14.:13:14.

it will mean that more people feel able to contact us.

:13:15.:13:21.

An aristocrat has denied dangerous driving following a crash at a busy

:13:22.:13:24.

76-year-old Lady Susan Zetland, of Aske Hall near Richmond,

:13:25.:13:33.

appeared at Teesside Crown Court for a brief hearing.

:13:34.:13:35.

She was charged after her 4x4 was involved in a collision

:13:36.:13:38.

on the A66 at the Melsonby crossroads in July.

:13:39.:13:40.

Well, onto sport, and the Bradford Bulls have been put into liquidation

:13:41.:13:48.

after administrators failed to find a new buyer.

:13:49.:13:51.

All the staff and players have been made redundant.

:13:52.:13:53.

However, the four-time Super League champions can still compete

:13:54.:13:56.

in the championship if a new owner can be found.

:13:57.:13:58.

The club has been an administration for 50 days and there have been a

:13:59.:14:12.

number of interested parties and a couple of deals that we thought

:14:13.:14:15.

could get over the line. A real shock shock to everybody involved

:14:16.:14:20.

that the deal didn't go through and players were called in and told that

:14:21.:14:23.

the club was folding and ceased to exist. One of the problem is not

:14:24.:14:28.

just the debts but the debts they think will be coming. It is a huge

:14:29.:14:33.

shortfall in the projected profits in terms of spending too much money

:14:34.:14:37.

already saw one of the things they can do is cut back on staff but also

:14:38.:14:42.

trimmed the playing squad. In a lot of players have already joined new

:14:43.:14:50.

clubs. The general manager says they haven't been living within their

:14:51.:14:51.

means. It's very disappointing. We thought

:14:52.:14:59.

after last time it was going to take the club forward and we could choose

:15:00.:15:03.

the deemed to promotion. Another previous owner didn't invest enough

:15:04.:15:12.

and the club has suffered and not winning the million pound game a

:15:13.:15:15.

couple of years ago was probably the last nail in the coffin.

:15:16.:15:26.

That is very little money coming in to funds but most people in rugby

:15:27.:15:32.

league want to see funding coming in.

:15:33.:15:36.

Better news for Yorkshire's football clubs, though -

:15:37.:15:39.

could 2017 be a very big year for them?

:15:40.:15:41.

After yesterday's games, both Sheffield United

:15:42.:15:43.

and Doncaster Rovers are top of their respective divisions,

:15:44.:15:45.

while four of our other teams are in the playoff places.

:15:46.:15:47.

We haven't had a Premier League side in the region for ten years now,

:15:48.:15:51.

but fans are daring to dream that might be about to change.

:15:52.:15:54.

The gloom of going down - this was Sheffield United's

:15:55.:15:57.

delegation from the Premier League in 2007.

:15:58.:15:59.

Now though, almost all of Yorkshire's football clubs find

:16:00.:16:03.

themselves at the right end of the table.

:16:04.:16:09.

Huddersfield are the highest, fourth in the championship

:16:10.:16:12.

after Nakhi Wells scored the only goal of the game at Wigan yesterday.

:16:13.:16:15.

In sixth, Sheffield Wednesday who escaped Wolves'

:16:16.:16:17.

Mounting an unlikely play-off challenge for Barnsley,

:16:18.:16:26.

In the Yorkshire derby, Leeds had a 3-0 win over Rotherham.

:16:27.:16:34.

One coach in bullish mood about the transfer window,

:16:35.:16:41.

the other still watching the car park.

:16:42.:16:45.

We're here to keep all our players and to build something,

:16:46.:16:48.

It will only be incoming as no one will be leaving in this window.

:16:49.:16:54.

The chairman has asked me to keep going, and that could be ten

:16:55.:16:57.

years or ten minutes, but there's no exciting news that

:16:58.:17:00.

Ron Atkinson is pulling into the car park or anything.

:17:01.:17:02.

I always check for cars on my way to work every day.

:17:03.:17:05.

That leaves Leeds fifth, in the middle of a Yorkshire

:17:06.:17:13.

Wembley looks a good place to be in May.

:17:14.:17:16.

Hoping to avoid the play-offs is Sheffield United,

:17:17.:17:18.

top of league one after a 3-1 win at Bury.

:17:19.:17:22.

There was an own goal and a late tap in.

:17:23.:17:28.

Bradford grabbed a first win in five.

:17:29.:17:30.

His cross was finished off as the Bantams beat

:17:31.:17:38.

It's looking good at the top, the Blades now ten to one to go up,

:17:39.:17:50.

less so at the bottom after Chesterfield's

:17:51.:17:51.

And Doncaster dominated against Stevenage and a late

:17:52.:17:56.

own goal was enough for the three points.

:17:57.:17:58.

It could well be a very happy New Year.

:17:59.:18:05.

Adrian Hinchliffe is the coach who guided Jack Laugher

:18:06.:18:08.

and Chris Mears to win Great Britain's first

:18:09.:18:10.

Working for the council, he's been key to making

:18:11.:18:16.

performance centre in the country, but after 24 years he's leaving.

:18:17.:18:20.

Despite what he's achieved he's only been employed

:18:21.:18:23.

as a consultant by British Diving, so he's heading to Australia's

:18:24.:18:26.

We'll hear from him shortly, but first here's some of those

:18:27.:18:30.

He has taken me from a boy with a lot of teams to a man able to

:18:31.:18:48.

achieve his dreams with his dedication, his organisation and

:18:49.:18:51.

professionalism. Easy Macbeth" and a great person to have in my career.

:18:52.:19:02.

We've got the Olympic medallists in Great Britain, Junior champions,

:19:03.:19:13.

World Cup champions, the success is just unbelievable and that all

:19:14.:19:19.

started from his vision. It is a massive shame from the bottom of my

:19:20.:19:22.

heart to say he is leaving us. He has his reasons and to be honest,

:19:23.:19:33.

he's been forced to leave. The hard work he's put in and what he has

:19:34.:19:37.

sacrificed to create a brilliant training environment with amazing

:19:38.:19:39.

divers who have achieved more than anyone has ever achieved in

:19:40.:19:50.

Britain, it feels like an insult to his legacy. I think the performance

:19:51.:20:00.

director have overlooked how much of a key role he plays. I wish his

:20:01.:20:08.

family the best but it's just a fact that he's going... I can't get used

:20:09.:20:12.

to it. What's it like listening to that?

:20:13.:20:21.

That's pretty heartbreaking. That's the side of it that has made the

:20:22.:20:25.

decision very difficult for me. I've made some great friends in those

:20:26.:20:31.

athletes and coaches and it's hard to look at. It has been quite

:20:32.:20:36.

sudden. It has taken new 24 years to get there and they talk about your

:20:37.:20:42.

legacy. We're working very hard at the moment behind the scenes to make

:20:43.:20:47.

sure that divers like Jack and those guys use our training, Tucker. It's

:20:48.:20:58.

important to me. -- those guys are looked after. there were strong

:20:59.:21:05.

words from them about why you're leaving, that he had been forced

:21:06.:21:08.

out. It's not necessarily what you want to do. I don't think anyone

:21:09.:21:13.

wants to leave anything that they do, especially something I've been

:21:14.:21:19.

so proud of. I loved -- I've loved being heard in Leeds. I came to

:21:20.:21:22.

university here years ago and it's always been good to me -- here in

:21:23.:21:29.

Leeds. There are personalities in the division at the moment that

:21:30.:21:36.

didn't match and a very passing -- I'm very passionate about my sport

:21:37.:21:40.

and I want to go to the next place. I've got a family and looking after

:21:41.:21:43.

them is very important so it's been a big decision but isn't -- there is

:21:44.:21:52.

another opportunity on the table and I have to take it. British diving

:21:53.:22:07.

and giving you -- they are begging you to stay. It is something I have

:22:08.:22:14.

always been passionate about. I'm a little confused but I'm not one of

:22:15.:22:19.

those people that is going to hang on. People make decisions and they

:22:20.:22:26.

have to make those decisions and that is why they are paid. I would

:22:27.:22:32.

love to stay here but unfortunately this time it's not going to happen.

:22:33.:22:37.

We're going to miss you! Well done for everything.

:22:38.:22:45.

A former soldier from Rotherham who abandoned climbing to the very

:22:46.:22:47.

top of Everest to help save the life of a stranger says he's

:22:48.:22:50.

Leslie Binns was only 500 metres from the summit

:22:51.:22:58.

when he helped Sunita Hazra, an Indian woman who'd

:22:59.:23:00.

Now Leslie says he plans to return to Nepal in April

:23:01.:23:04.

He said he wouldn't attempted again but 42-year-old Leslie is preparing

:23:05.:23:21.

to climb Everest for a second time. He had to abandon the challenge last

:23:45.:23:50.

very frosty start to the day on Thursday with clear skies,

:26:08.:26:10.

temperatures a few degrees below freezing so Thursday will feel

being blown in on the gust and temperatures around 56 Celsius but

:27:19.:27:21.

it will feel cooler in the wind. Inland, the breeze is like. Still a
