in the Woodthorpe area of York Seven-year-old Katie Rough was found

down a track on Alness Drive. Her distraught mother was seen

and Katie's family and friends desperately try to come to terms

:03:08.:03:11.

with their tragic loss. Michelle Lyons, BBC

:03:12.:03:14.

Look North, York. A BBC Yorkshire investigation has

:03:15.:03:18.

found that schools in our region have lost almost ?9 million

:03:19.:03:22.

from their budgets In some cases, the reduction has

:03:23.:03:25.

lead to redundancies and increased class sizes,

:03:26.:03:34.

as Dave Edwards reports. This thing is to do

:04:00.:04:03.

as much on the lesson, And you've not got much room

to put your stuff in front of you, which makes it confusing

and dropping things and stuff. Everyone just agrees it's

:04:12.:04:14.

too much for one class. There's no legal limit

:04:15.:04:17.

to the size of the class. Headteacher Liz Creswell says

:04:18.:04:20.

the move was prompted by changes to the GCSE maths exam

:04:21.:04:24.

and difficulties recruiting She says the school,

:04:25.:04:27.

like many others, has had to make Teaching unions are worried cuts

:04:39.:04:42.

actually, and I would find that I understand that they are the top

:04:43.:04:45.

set of maths but I still think that they would learn an awful lot

:04:46.:04:49.

more if they were in Keeping control of them

:04:50.:04:52.

will be more difficult. There's only one adult

:04:53.:04:55.

in the class with them, is my understanding,

:04:56.:04:57.

so it would be difficult to ensure they're all safe,

:04:58.:04:59.

and the NUT's position is that it's unacceptable to have

:05:00.:05:03.

a class of more than 30. When budgets run low,

:05:04.:05:05.

bigger classes aren't the only thing Other schools have told me

:05:06.:05:09.

they're having to cut back on things like books,

:05:10.:05:13.

equipment and even teachers. Ofsted inspectors say 37 staff have

:05:14.:05:17.

left this school since September 2015 without being replaced

:05:18.:05:23.

because of financial difficulties. Broadly speaking, changes

you look at that and think, We asked the Government

for an interview but they said They did tell us school funding

:05:50.:05:53.

is at its highest level on record, with over ?40 billion

:05:54.:05:57.

being invested in 2016-17. But the National Audit Office says

:05:58.:05:59.

that isn't keeping up with rising pupil numbers and higher costs

of staff pensions and In the end, it's the children

who are affected when A number of hospitals in our region

:06:13.:06:16.

are reporting unprecedented levels of demand as they continue to try

:06:17.:06:24.

and cope with winter pressures. While some have been forced

:06:25.:06:29.

to cancel planned operations, others have been placed on a high

:06:30.:06:32.

level of alert, as our health correspondent,

:06:33.:06:34.

Jamie Coulson, reports. On New Year's Day, Pat McIntosh

:06:35.:06:38.

was taken to A in Dewsbury When she and her family arrived,

:06:39.:06:42.

they say that they were confronted with chaotic scenes as staff

:06:43.:06:47.

struggled with demand. The trust say they are doing

:06:48.:06:51.

what they can to relieve pressure, but Pat faced a 19-hour wait before

:06:52.:06:54.

a bed became available. It was just so chaotic,

:06:55.:07:00.

queueing and waiting. And they were trying

:07:01.:07:06.

to do their best but it just... Winter pressures at

:07:07.:07:11.

hospitals are nothing new. Two years ago, Scarborough Hospital

:07:12.:07:16.

was forced to declare a major incident when they were no longer

:07:17.:07:19.

able to cope. This year, many trusts say

:07:20.:07:22.

that they are operating under At these hospitals,

:07:23.:07:24.

like elsewhere in the NHS, they say that they are experiencing

:07:25.:07:30.

unprecedented levels of demand. We understand that last week

:07:31.:07:34.

at St James's Hospital, there were two days when there

:07:35.:07:37.

were no beds available for patients Last week, Rotherham Hospital

:07:38.:07:41.

spent a day and a half at the highest level of alert,

:07:42.:07:46.

which means there is the potential for some patient

:07:47.:07:50.

care to be compromised. And Airedale Hospital has been

:07:51.:07:54.

cancelling all nonurgent operations Over the past few months,

:07:55.:07:58.

the departments have unfortunately become busier,

:07:59.:08:04.

more overcrowded, and figures are clear that they show that

:08:05.:08:09.

unfortunately our performance is probably the worst

:08:10.:08:12.

in over a decade. Last week, I met a constituent

:08:13.:08:16.

whose husband died... Sheffield MP Louise Hague believes

:08:17.:08:18.

people are being let down by a system in crisis

:08:19.:08:21.

after a constituent died after waiting for an ambulance

:08:22.:08:24.

for two hours and 40 minutes. It is not an exaggeration to say

:08:25.:08:29.

that the NHS is in crisis now. We have heard that from NHS leaders

right down to people People are struggling to get

the most basic services. Yorkshire Ambulance Service

:08:42.:08:44.

say that they are aware of the incident and are liaising

with the patient's family. Meanwhile, the message to patients

:08:47.:08:48.

who do not need urgent hospital treatment remains

:08:49.:08:51.

to seek help elsewhere. The pressure on hospitals

gales developing overnight. And also to the east of high ground as well.

I imagine, through the last part of the night and into tomorrow morning,

:10:01.:10:08.

the Pennine chain may well have disruption. A bit patchy rain

through the second half of the night as well. Temperatures falling back

to five or 6 degrees. A very windy rush-hour. That warning still in

force. As we head to the day, it will remain blustery. Not too many

:10:23.:10:26.

showers. Most focused in the Northwest. But for many parts away

:10:27.:10:32.

from the hills, a good deal of dry and bright weather with some

sunshine. Temperatures lifting the seven or 8 degrees. Getting colder

:10:37.:10:43.

from Thursday onwards. A very frosty start to Thursday. Some is both
