Tonight, emotional scenes in Huddersfield as family

:00:00.:00:08.

and friends mourn Yassar Yaqub, who was shot dead by

:00:09.:00:12.

His father says he wants answers about what happened.

:00:13.:00:18.

Well, Ian White's at Ainley Top now, where the vigil was held.

:00:19.:00:28.

Good evening. This is Ainley Top behind me, with the M62 in the

:00:29.:00:38.

background and the slip road and the scene where the shooting took place

:00:39.:00:43.

on Monday evening. 48 hours on, lots of unanswered questions. Tonight

:00:44.:00:46.

family and friends came to Ainley Top to create what I can only

:00:47.:00:50.

describe as a shrine to the dead man.

:00:51.:00:51.

These were the incredible scenes at Ainley Top this evening.

:00:52.:00:54.

The busy M62 slip road was turned a car park as 200 people

:00:55.:00:57.

held a vigil for Yassar Yaqub, the 28-year-old man shot dead

:00:58.:01:00.

His mother and father were sobbing as they laid flowers and lit candles

:01:01.:01:06.

Many of the dead man's friends held a banner saying,

:01:07.:01:16.

"Rest in peace - justice for Yassar".

:01:17.:01:18.

After prayers, Yassar Yaqub's father Mohammed spoke to Look North.

:01:19.:01:23.

There has been a lot of support for the young man.

:01:24.:01:27.

He was a lovely young lad and it shows how much he was loved

:01:28.:01:31.

and liked in the community, amongst all the friends in the community.

:01:32.:01:37.

And I hope he gets a good place in heaven, and he was a true,

:01:38.:01:41.

kind person who did not deserve to be killed the way he was killed.

:01:42.:01:46.

I would like some answers, real answers, true answers -

:01:47.:01:51.

Real answers why he was killed the way he was killed.

:01:52.:01:58.

What prompted the police to kill him?

:01:59.:02:01.

Cos he was a passenger in the car, sat.

:02:02.:02:04.

They pulled up and just shot three shots through the windscreen,

:02:05.:02:09.

And presumably it happened so quickly...

:02:10.:02:13.

So quick, and I believe the police were not even wearing body cameras.

:02:14.:02:18.

How are you coping with what's happened?

:02:19.:02:21.

They've ruined the whole family, and in fact the community as well.

:02:22.:02:30.

And I just want everyone to know that my dad had a gold heart

:02:31.:02:33.

That was jasmine, the dead man's daughter, and West Yorkshire Police

:02:34.:02:50.

have not made any further comment about the circumstances surrounding

:02:51.:02:53.

the death and the incident and what led up to it. It was described as a

:02:54.:02:58.

preplanned operation but they have said no more, while the Independent

:02:59.:03:02.

Police Complaints Commission investigates the whole affair. There

:03:03.:03:05.

are still some vehicles pulling up at the shrine this evening to pay

:03:06.:03:06.

their respects to the dead man, but their respects to the dead man, but

:03:07.:03:08.

that is all from Ainley Top for now. Tonight's vigil follows a protest

:03:09.:03:11.

in Bradford last night, when a group of men attacked

:03:12.:03:13.

a police car and blocked a road, Bradford city centre last night -

:03:14.:03:17.

a police car is surrounded. Banners are draped over

:03:18.:03:23.

the windscreen as protesters film Kicks are aimed at

:03:24.:03:25.

the side of the car. For several hours,

:03:26.:03:35.

people blocked routes and waved signs carrying phrases including

:03:36.:03:42.

"police, don't murder". No-one was injured or arrested

:03:43.:03:47.

during the protest. It was a reaction to the death

:03:48.:03:50.

of Yassar Yaqub on Monday. The Independent Police Complaints

:03:51.:03:58.

Commission says a gun A postmortem examination

:03:59.:04:02.

on Mr Yaqub's body was due Yesterday, police were at the family

:04:03.:04:05.

home in Huddersfield, where up to ten CCTV cameras dot

:04:06.:04:09.

the walls - perhaps a response to an incident in 2015

:04:10.:04:12.

when a shotgun was fired Yassar Yaqub was a fan of fast cars

:04:13.:04:14.

like this yellow Lamborghini. His dad bought them for his only

:04:15.:04:21.

son, who he admits he spoiled. In 2010, Yassar Yaqub

:04:22.:04:25.

was cleared of attempted murder and a firearms offence

:04:26.:04:28.

because of insufficient evidence. What happened in the moments before

he was shot dead on Monday night at Ainley Top,

:04:32.:04:34.

we don't yet know. The human rights charity

:04:35.:04:37.

Just Yorkshire says There is a person here who has

:04:38.:04:39.

actually lost their life. That has had an effect on family

:04:40.:04:44.

and community, irrespective And the point is there has got to be

:04:45.:04:48.

a line of accountability, and what the people want now

:04:49.:04:53.

is the police force to actually be up front in terms

:04:54.:04:58.

of what's happened. In an attempt to improve

:04:59.:05:00.

transparency, West Yorkshire Police has been introducing body-worn

:05:01.:05:03.

cameras, but none of the firearms officers involved in

:05:04.:05:06.

the shooting was wearing them. Firearms officers need a bespoke

:05:07.:05:09.

solution for body-worn video. The current cameras that

:05:10.:05:12.

are available to the general police officer are not suitable

:05:13.:05:15.

for firearms usage, and that is purely down

:05:16.:05:18.

to where they are worn on the body and the blocked views

:05:19.:05:21.

that they get because of the nature of the equipment,

:08:12.:08:13.

and British Cycling are believed to have advised

Kadeena not to take part. In a statement,

:08:17.:08:20.

British Athletics says: She'll hope to do that in time

:08:21.:08:37.

for the World ParaAthletics Now let's take a look

:08:38.:08:39.

at the weather. It is cold but changes are on the

:08:40.:08:56.

way. Big changes in the next day or so.

:08:57.:09:00.

It is called out there but milder are well head back from the West in

:09:01.:09:08.

the next 24 to 36 hours. If you like the cold, tomorrow is the day.

:09:09.:09:12.

Beautifully cold and sunny with all parts break apart from the odd

:09:13.:09:17.

shower creeping down that north Yorkshire coastline. Let's look at

:09:18.:09:20.

the Atlantic weather chart, the ridge of high pressure for Thursday,

:09:21.:09:25.

giving way pressure falls when we see at the Atlantic weather systems

:09:26.:09:28.

moving in on Friday. Over the weekend, milder air than that wet

:09:29.:09:33.

from the Atlantic air. A lot of cloud cloud on Saturday and Sunday,

:09:34.:09:38.

but also mild temperatures with sunshine. We have one or two showers

:09:39.:09:42.

creeping down the east coast. Further west, we have already got

:09:43.:09:47.

frost. The wind will use it and in western areas we will see the lowest

:09:48.:09:52.

temperatures, with blows down to minus four Celsius. That is 25

:09:53.:09:56.

Fahrenheit. Showers towards the coast could be wintry if they are on

:09:57.:10:01.

the North York Moors and Yorkshire, watch out for icy patches on

:10:02.:10:06.

untreated services. Any showers along the coast will ease and then

:10:07.:10:10.

beautiful day with cold and frosty in some spots but lots of sunshine

:10:11.:10:14.

around. A light and variable breeze with top temperatures four Celsius.

:10:15.:10:20.

That is 39 Celsius. Frost returning Thursday evening. There is that

:10:21.:10:25.

they'll cloud on the next Atlantic weather system comes in and it means

:10:26.:10:29.

a wet day on Friday. That's it from me. Now the national weather.

:10:30.:10:32.

rain by Friday afternoon. Temperatures creeping up a notch or

:10:33.:10:35.

two and turning milder into the weekend.

:10:36.:10:41.

A guarantee on your journey to work tomorrow, if you are nipping out to

:10:42.:10:49.

the shop for a paper, somebody will talk about how cold it is. Looking

:10:50.:10:55.

at today, the weather front pushing Southwest, mild air stay in

:10:56.:10:57.

south-west, but behind it is colder air from the Arctic. Behind it,

:10:58.:11:02.

windy conditions. Bleak across northern Scotland, a cold day with

:11:03.:11:06.

temperatures struggling to get above two. If you think that's cold, look

:11:07.:11:10.

at what's happening outside as we speak. Temperatures falling below

:11:11.:11:14.

freezing quite widely across the country and towards dawn they could

:11:15.:11:22.

be as low as -8 in rural parts of Oxfordshire. I guarantee you will be

:11:23.:11:24.

scraping the ice of the car windscreens first thing in the

:11:25.:11:28.

morning. Some cloud running down the North Sea coast and some cloud
