Here on BBC One, it's time for the news where you are.

:00:00.:00:00.

Good evening and welcome to the late Look North.

:00:00.:00:00.

Scarborough's historic Futurist Theatre will be demolished

:00:00.:00:08.

And ?3 million of lottery cash to help restore one of Yorkshire's

:00:09.:00:15.

best-loved stately homes to its former glory.

:00:16.:00:18.

Some big changes to come this week with cold weather on the way.

:00:19.:00:22.

Join me for the live, updated forecast.

:00:23.:00:31.

It's been part of the Scarborough coastline since 1921,

:00:32.:00:35.

but today councillors voted to demolish the Futurist Theatre,

:00:36.:00:39.

Getting rid of the theatre has been described as leaving Scarborough

:00:40.:00:44.

And today there were lots of angry people in the council meeting.

:00:45.:00:49.

In its heyday, the Futurist played host to some of the biggest names

:00:50.:00:57.

Shirley Bassey, the Beatles and Ken Dodd have all performed.

:00:58.:01:02.

But today, councillors voted to demolish the iconic building,

:01:03.:01:05.

which has been part of Scarborough's seafront since the 1920s.

:01:06.:01:17.

More than 100 campaigners marched through the town ahead of today's

:01:18.:01:19.

meeting and one heckling protester had to be read from the balcony.

:01:20.:01:22.

When Scarborough Borough councillors voted in favour of demolition,

:01:23.:01:31.

it came as a bitter blow to those who'd fought to save it.

:01:32.:01:35.

Did you expect that it could have saved?

:01:36.:01:43.

It will cost ?4 million to knock the Futurist down and shore up

:01:44.:01:55.

The land will be made available for redevelopment,

:01:56.:01:58.

which some councillors believe is well overdue.

:01:59.:02:00.

People have come forward with ideas but in my opinion they have backed

:02:01.:02:05.

them up with a proper is this case to show that after any refurbishment

:02:06.:02:20.

has been done and reconfiguration has been carried out that it

:02:21.:02:24.

would provide a sustainable theatre to operate and make money

:02:25.:02:26.

The Futurist once played a huge part in Scarborough's summer season,

:02:27.:02:30.

attracting thousands of visitors, but in recent years audiences have

:02:31.:02:32.

Campaigners have fought long and hard to keep it open

:02:33.:02:36.

but today its fate was sealed and the curtain has finally

:02:37.:02:39.

An inquest has heard that a man who was found

:02:40.:02:47.

dead alongside his wife, who'd been stabbed, had been sent

:02:48.:02:50.

home from a mental health unit just days earlier.

:02:51.:02:52.

Martin Ashworth from Garforth died in a house fire in April 2014,

:02:53.:02:57.

just 13 days after he was discharged from the Becklin Centre in Leeds.

:02:58.:03:01.

His wife Susan suffered fatal stab wounds.

:03:02.:03:04.

Wakefield Coroner's Court heard Mr Ashworth was told by a nurse

:03:05.:03:07.

that he was being sent home because "they needed beds."

:03:08.:03:11.

The aftermath of the arson attack at a family home

:03:12.:03:18.

47-year-old Susan Ashworth was found in her burning house.

:03:19.:03:22.

Her husband Martin was pulled out of the fire but died a short

:03:23.:03:28.

An inquest heard today that Susan had been planning

:03:29.:03:34.

She told her mother that he emotionally abused her,

:03:35.:03:39.

trying to impose power and control over her and their two sons.

:03:40.:03:45.

Wakefield coroner's court was told that as their marriage deteriorated,

:03:46.:03:48.

Mr Ashworth tried to take his own life by poisoning himself with

:03:49.:03:52.

Following in his suicide attempt on the 22nd of March 2014,

:03:53.:03:59.

Martin Ashworth agreed to be admitted to the mental health unit

:04:00.:04:02.

Three days later, he was sectioned for 28 days under

:04:03.:04:09.

But only 22 days after that he was discharged.

:04:10.:04:16.

The inquest was told that family members were shocked by the decision

:04:17.:04:19.

to discharge Martin Ashworth early from the mental health unit.

:04:20.:04:24.

We heard that his wife Susan Ashworth felt she had no

:04:25.:04:26.

choice but to allow him home as he had nowhere to go.

:04:27.:04:29.

Martin's mother, Barbara Ashworth, said her son asked staff

:04:30.:04:35.

at the Becklin centre why he was being sent home

:04:36.:04:37.

13 days later, Martin was dead after a deliberate fire at his home,

:04:38.:04:45.

his wife Susan was found their stabbed to death.

:04:46.:04:50.

Susan Ashworth was described by her mother today has a wonderful,

:04:51.:04:53.

kind, loving person who was loved beyond measure.

:04:54.:04:57.

The inquest into the deaths continues.

:04:58.:05:00.

:05:01.:05:05.

Around 50 people marched from the M62 to Huddersfield this

:05:06.:05:08.

evening to protest at last week's fatal shooting of 28-year-old

:05:09.:05:12.

The demonstration brought traffic to a standstill

:05:13.:05:17.

in Birkby and on the main Huddersfield ring road.

:05:18.:05:20.

Police intervened to move protesters on before they gathered outside

:05:21.:05:23.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission is investigating events

:05:24.:05:28.

A gun was found in the footwell of the car in which Yaqub

:05:29.:05:35.

200 Tesco jobs are being cut in Barlborough near Chesterfield.

:05:36.:05:41.

The company is closing its distribution centre

:05:42.:05:44.

Tesco says it'll try and help employees get jobs elsewhere

:05:45.:05:49.

A thousand jobs are being lost across the country

:05:50.:05:55.

as the supermarket changes its distribution network.

:05:56.:05:59.

Football now, and Leeds United safely got through their tricky FA

:06:00.:06:03.

Cup Third Round tie at League Two side Cambridge United this evening.

:06:04.:06:07.

Cambridge went ahead after 25 minutes through

:06:08.:06:09.

But Stuart Dallas headed an equaliser for Leeds 11 minutes

:06:10.:06:15.

after half-time and Alex Mowatt scored the winner seven minutes

:06:16.:06:19.

later to set up a fourth-round tie at either AFC Wimbledon or

:06:20.:06:22.

And elsewhere in tonight's Fourth Round draw,

:06:23.:06:29.

Huddersfield face a short trip across the Pennines to Rochdale.

:06:30.:06:32.

And if Barnsley win their replay against Blackpool, they'll be away

:06:33.:06:35.

Barnsley's historic country house Cannon Hall has won

:06:36.:06:41.

a lottery grant of nearly ?3 million.

:06:42.:06:44.

The money will be used to restore the grounds,

:06:45.:06:47.

clean the lakes and repair the eighteenth century ice house.

:06:48.:06:50.

Charlotte Leeming has been to take a look.

:06:51.:07:00.

It's a Georgian gem, is Cannon Hall, a country house that any Jane Austen

:07:01.:07:03.

Although the house is lovingly restored, time has robbed

:07:04.:07:06.

the grounds and gardens of its attractive period features,

:07:07.:07:10.

like its greenhouse built in 1700 to grow pineapples

:07:11.:07:12.

This is part of Cannon Hall's glorious gardens and it is famous

:07:13.:07:19.

for the exotic fruit it used to grow, many of which we still have

:07:20.:07:22.

growing in the gardens, like our pear collection that goes

:07:23.:07:25.

But pineapples, in particular, Cannon Hall is famous for.

:07:26.:07:33.

It is hoped these gardens and greenhouses will be glorious

:07:34.:07:36.

once more thanks to ?3 million of lottery funding.

:07:37.:07:40.

The Hall is owned by Barnsley council but it is helped by a team

:07:41.:07:43.

of volunteers who work tirelessly here, even in the pouring rain.

:07:44.:07:48.

We have been fundraising for 40 years basically, a long time.

:07:49.:08:01.

We knew the lakes needed work doing, we knew the gardens needed a lot

:08:02.:08:06.

A once majestic Lake is a marked for restoration.

:08:07.:08:15.

It contains so much silt it needs to be dredged.

:08:16.:08:18.

Then visitors will be able to hire rowing boats and fishing equipment

:08:19.:08:21.

in a throwback to popular Georgian pastimes.

:08:22.:08:22.

Something I used to do as a boy was play in those lakes.

:08:23.:08:25.

I am not going to swim again in those lakes

:08:26.:08:28.

Visitors will be able to see things they have never seen here before,

:08:29.:08:33.

such as this ice house built in 1700.

:08:34.:08:37.

Long before refridgerators were invented, people would go down

:08:38.:08:41.

to the lake in the winter months, come back with ice and snow and pack

:08:42.:08:45.

it inside here so it could be used during the summer.

:08:46.:08:49.

For 300 years this home and its gardens were owned

:08:50.:08:53.

by the Spencer-Stanhope family but now this is a park

:08:54.:08:55.

for the people of Barnsley and they are determined to restore

:08:56.:08:58.

it to its Georgian splendour so that others can enjoy it

:08:59.:09:04.

A rowing boat on a late at Cannon Hall, that would be nice, wouldn't

:09:05.:09:21.

it? A bit posh for me. A bit posh for Barnsley, isn't it? It has been

:09:22.:09:28.

well signalled, as the headline, unsettled, snow showers coming down.

:09:29.:09:33.

We are getting rid of the milder air. If this is correct, if the

:09:34.:09:40.

milder air starts to get back in, it will be the second part of the

:09:41.:09:44.

weekend but that is up to question at the moment. On the weather

:09:45.:09:47.

charts, watched the isobars that come around, from eight Westerly.

:09:48.:09:55.

There is likely to the showers of snow even down to lower levels.

:09:56.:09:58.

Interesting for a time later this week. There will be some patchy

:09:59.:10:02.

outbreaks of rain in the Pennines over night. East it will be dry with

:10:03.:10:08.

clear spells. A windy night as well. Temperatures three or four Celsius.

:10:09.:10:12.

A West, East split tomorrow. Outbreaks of rain on and off for the

:10:13.:10:16.

Pennines but further east it is dry and bright with sunshine. Cloud will

:10:17.:10:20.

begin in the easterly afternoon. One of two spots of rain later but

:10:21.:10:24.

certainly be Pennines that will be rainy tomorrow. A bit of mist over

:10:25.:10:30.

the hills as well. A windy day to come and top temperatures of eight

:10:31.:10:35.

Celsius. As we head through Tuesday evening in the Tuesday night it is

:10:36.:10:39.

more of the same, most of the patchy rain in the West and a weather front

:10:40.:10:43.

will be rain southwards by first light on Wednesday morning. Hide

:10:44.:10:48.

that is when we get the colder air and by the end of Wednesday the

:10:49.:10:52.

showers will be telling wintry over the hills. When states out is not

:10:53.:10:56.

looking too bad, a few showers later but that it on Friday big drop in

:10:57.:11:03.

temperatures. That is it from Amy and me and I

:11:04.:11:05.
