It continues to be very windy out there but what about the next few

:00:00.:00:00.

days? Join me for the life and updated forecast.

:00:00.:00:00.

Tonight, a teenager's appeared in court charged with the murder

:00:00.:00:08.

Katie Rough was found critically injured on a playing field

:00:09.:00:12.

A 15-year-old girl was today remanded into secure accommodation,

:00:13.:00:18.

charged with her murder and with the possession

:00:19.:00:21.

The family of Katie Rough at court this morning.

:00:22.:00:31.

She died here, on Alness Drive in the Woodthorpe area of York.

:00:32.:00:35.

The court heard today that she had suffered significant lacerations

:00:36.:00:39.

Police investigations continued at the scene,

:00:40.:00:45.

with a metal detector used to search nearby undergrowth.

:00:46.:00:47.

Meanwhile the pile of floral tributes grows.

:00:48.:00:51.

Four miles from the scene the teenage girl accused of killing

:00:52.:00:56.

Katie appeared in court for the first time.

:00:57.:00:58.

The accused, who was 15 years old, nodded to show that she understood

:00:59.:01:01.

Members of Katie's family were also in court and some were visibly upset

:01:02.:01:06.

The teenager is charged with murdering Katie Rough

:01:07.:01:11.

on Alness Drive in York on Monday and also with possession

:01:12.:01:14.

Outside Katie's school the feeling remains one of shock.

:01:15.:01:22.

Just a little girl, it's really scary, I would say, you know.

:01:23.:01:25.

And then you don't want her lose sight of any of your loved ones now.

:01:26.:01:29.

One of my good friends is really good friends with the mum

:01:30.:01:32.

and she has taken it really hard and so have her daughters

:01:33.:01:35.

A fundraising page to support Katie's family has been set up York

:01:36.:01:42.

She didn't know the family but says she wanted to help.

:01:43.:01:47.

It isn't just me, there's people all over the UK donating.

:01:48.:01:50.

It isn't just something I'm doing, she's in the hearts and heads

:01:51.:01:53.

are so many people, and the family, there's so much love for them right

:01:54.:01:57.

They already know the pain of what they have lost, but not why.

:01:58.:02:15.

A change to legislation in memory of the missing York

:02:16.:02:17.

chef Claudia Lawrence, which is designed to give families

:02:18.:02:20.

greater control over the affairs of missing people,

:02:21.:02:22.

has cleared its first hurdle in the Commons.

:02:23.:02:24.

The bill was championed by Claudia's father, Peter.

:02:25.:02:28.

Dubbed Claudia's Law, it was given the go-ahead in parliament

:02:29.:02:32.

You've got to remember that it's 22 months ago that the government

:02:33.:02:39.

committed to this bill and it's taken a private member,

:02:40.:02:41.

Kevin Hollinrake, one of our local MPs, for Thirsk and Malton to bring

:02:42.:02:44.

it forward himself, and at least we know it has got

:02:45.:02:47.

But it wasn't the government that brought it forward, it was Kevin.

:02:48.:02:53.

The MP for Batley and Spen, Tracy Brabin, has called

:02:54.:02:55.

on Teresa May to step- in to keep open the A department

:02:56.:02:58.

She told the Prime Minister that the on-going winter beds crisis

:02:59.:03:03.

proved the department is vital to the local community.

:03:04.:03:08.

Over Christmas I had constituents who were waiting 20 hours for a bed

:03:09.:03:11.

in a facility that might not even exist next year.

:03:12.:03:13.

Would the Prime Minister now, please, face reality and act now

:03:14.:03:18.

to stop this vital A service from disappearing.

:03:19.:03:26.

Decisions about services in the local area are rightly taken

:03:27.:03:28.

by the local national health service because we believe that it's local

:03:29.:03:31.

clinicians and also local patients and leaders who know what's best

:03:32.:03:34.

for their area, so it's about trying to tailor the services to provide

:03:35.:03:37.

the best possible needs for local people.

:03:38.:03:45.

There's a bit of a row going on in the Peak District.

:03:46.:03:48.

People in the village of Foolow aren't pleased with plans to put

:03:49.:03:51.

The Peak Park bought the land to stop it being a permanent caravan

:03:52.:03:59.

park, but now the Park wants a mobile park there.

:04:00.:04:02.

This bit of prime Peak District land was going to be a caravan site

:04:03.:04:05.

until the park authority realised it had granted planning permission

:04:06.:04:11.

It bought the land for ?650,000 so it could protect it from being

:04:12.:04:17.

Now, four years later, the Peak Park wants to turn it in to...

:04:18.:04:22.

It's the Peak District's job to protect this fantastic and very

:04:23.:04:29.

That's what the planning regulations are all about,

:04:30.:04:33.

but here the authority is judging its own application,

:04:34.:04:37.

something the villagers down the valley are not happy about.

:04:38.:04:40.

It is very concerning, it's a bit like the MPs voting

:04:41.:04:44.

Legally they are allowed to do it, it is part of their remit

:04:45.:04:53.

to be able to do it, but when something is

:04:54.:04:56.

as controversial as this, it really does beg into question

:04:57.:04:58.

the independence of their planning authority.

:04:59.:04:59.

Peter Webster has been a farmer here all his life.

:05:00.:05:02.

He wanted to build a barn that he was told it wasn't

:05:03.:05:05.

He says it's not fair he can't have his barn,

:05:06.:05:10.

but the Peak District can have their caravan site.

:05:11.:05:15.

I'm afraid you won't put it on telly what I think about it.

:05:16.:05:22.

My barn is roughly 300-400 metres away from their caravan site

:05:23.:05:33.

Well, I think they should throw the caravan site out.

:05:34.:05:37.

The wording of the original planning application was wrong.

:05:38.:05:41.

It meant that private developers could put permanent static caravans

:05:42.:05:43.

on the site and that's why the Peak Park spent ?650,000

:05:44.:05:46.

This new development would only be for mobile caravans.

:05:47.:05:55.

The Peak Park Authority says it has a duty to recover as much of that

:05:56.:06:01.

purchase price as possible and reverting it back to a green

:06:02.:06:03.

To reclaim the money spent on stopping caravans,

:06:04.:06:14.

Winds of more than 90 miles per hour caused problems

:06:15.:06:23.

Trees were brought down, blocking roads and rail lines,

:06:24.:06:28.

and flights were cancelled in and out of Leeds

:06:29.:06:32.

For one couple in Bradford, last night's storms will take a very

:06:33.:06:36.

long time to recover from, as Shirley Henry reports.

:06:37.:06:38.

It is not the wake-up call it you expect first

:06:39.:06:45.

This 80 foot beech tree smashed its way through this

:06:46.:06:50.

bungalow in Birkenshaw after its roots were wrenched

:06:51.:06:52.

I heard a loud bang, like a bomb had gone off.

:06:53.:07:03.

When I looked there was rubble all down the landing and I knew

:07:04.:07:06.

it was bad but I didn't know what it was.

:07:07.:07:08.

We came outside and I saw it was a tree and we were very lucky

:07:09.:07:12.

to get away with it, I think.

:07:13.:07:14.

The bathroom has been destroyed, a lot of the internal walls

:07:15.:07:18.

and all of the roof in the centre has been destroyed so it's had it.

:07:19.:07:21.

In Bradford this school was shut to students after gusts

:07:22.:07:24.

caused slates to fly from the Victorian roof.

:07:25.:07:29.

Meanwhile in South Yorkshire high winds peeled away corrugated

:07:30.:07:31.

sheeting in Sheffield city centre and gusts of 93 mph

:07:32.:07:36.

Not only buildings have succumbed to the force of nature,

:07:37.:07:47.

across West Yorkshire trees were battered.

:07:48.:07:49.

This evening Bridgewater Place is slowly getting back to normal.

:07:50.:07:52.

Earlier the roads were closed because of high winds,

:07:53.:07:54.

causing traffic gridlock across parts of Leeds.

:07:55.:07:58.

But the roads aren't the only place where there were problems.

:07:59.:08:02.

Landing at Leeds Bradford Airport was going to be a challenge.

:08:03.:08:07.

It took all the pilot's skills to bring this plane down safely.

:08:08.:08:17.

Many passengers faced delays and cancellations.

:08:18.:08:18.

The strongest wind that we recorded here to here was in excess of 50

:08:19.:08:22.

knots which obviously is unsafe for operations so that was

:08:23.:08:24.

the reason why we had a number of delayed departures

:08:25.:08:27.

Nearly 40,000 homes across the North lost their power supply today.

:08:28.:08:34.

As for the bungalow in Birkenshaw, it's unlikely the owner will be

:08:35.:08:40.

Winds have finally started to die down, but can you believe it?

:08:41.:08:46.

The forecast for the next few days is sleet and snow.

:08:47.:08:53.

Well, have things calmed down tonight?

:08:54.:08:55.

You're always full of a bit of wind, aren't you?

:08:56.:09:07.

Iamb, but it is still blowing a gale out at high Bradfield. Letters have

:09:08.:09:12.

a recap the highest wind speeds we have observed. Hardly surprising

:09:13.:09:18.

that plane had time -- trouble landing. I Bradfield was the

:09:19.:09:22.

windiest place in the country. This is tomorrow's jar this feature looks

:09:23.:09:27.

as though it will slip to the south of us but we are looking closely at

:09:28.:09:31.

a system that will come down coastal areas first light Friday morning.

:09:32.:09:34.

Storm force winds and the Environment Agency are watching

:09:35.:09:38.

that. They could be coastal flooding and rain and snow thrown in for good

:09:39.:09:43.

measure. Showers on the radar picture, mainly of rain and

:09:44.:09:46.

increasingly they turn wintry over the hills, certainly with icy

:09:47.:09:53.

patches. Temperatures down to one. A cold day tomorrow, windy at first

:09:54.:09:57.

but the wind will ease significantly. Dry apply to the east

:09:58.:10:00.

and the showers turned increasingly to and snow. A few wintry showers

:10:01.:10:06.

getting further east and they will tend to die away through the

:10:07.:10:10.

afternoon. A cold one. Temperatures around 4 degrees, that is 39. It

:10:11.:10:16.

turns cold and frosty through Thursday evening and into Thursday

:10:17.:10:21.

night. All eyes to the door. A storm force wind includes Stork -- coastal

:10:22.:10:26.

areas is really impressive. An area of snow was swinging through us. The

:10:27.:10:32.

weekend looks cold and wintry showers on Saturday. This is a

:10:33.:10:39.

start to the weekend. Time for the national weather prospects if you

:10:40.:10:40.

are on the move. Good evening, a lot going on with

:10:41.:10:49.

the weather in the next few days, numerous weather warnings in for so

:10:50.:10:52.

buried in mind if you have travel plans. Lots of isobars on the chart

:10:53.:10:56.

overnight which means it will be windy for all. The strongest winds

:10:57.:10:59.

in Scotland, lots of wintry showers with snow getting down to

:11:00.:11:02.

increasingly low levels and some wintry showers in Northern Ireland

:11:03.:11:06.

and northern England. A cold night for Northern England, particularly

:11:07.:11:09.

in more rural spots, frosty and I see for some and some of the snow

:11:10.:11:14.

really blowing around over higher ground in Scotland. Strong wind and

:11:15.:11:17.

further snow to take us into tomorrow. It may well make for some

:11:18.:11:20.

tricky travelling conditions. The forecast for tomorrow in the

:11:21.:11:23.

southern half of the UK's quite tricky. We have got mild air bumping

:11:24.:11:27.

into colder air. The boundary between the two, it will be an ugly

:11:28.:11:32.

mix of rain, sleet and snow developing. Mild air comes in behind

:11:33.:11:35.

the weather front but the rain ahead of that will be mixing with the cold

:11:36.:11:39.

air. Details are a bit elusive even at

:11:40.:11:40.
