what it says about the president and his administration.

:00:00.:00:00.

Good evening and welcome to the late Look North.

:00:00.:00:00.

Thousands turn out to celebrate the life of a teenager

:00:00.:00:08.

Concerns in Sheffield as the new bishop says

:00:09.:00:14.

no to the ordination of women priests.

:00:15.:00:18.

It's feeling a bit more like spring, isn't it?

:00:19.:00:21.

Well, we're hanging onto that mild air over the next couple of days.

:00:22.:00:24.

I'll have your full forecast, shortly.

:00:25.:00:34.

The family of a 16-year-old stabbed to death in Leeds last week

:00:35.:00:37.

has appealed for peace and forgiveness

:00:38.:00:40.

following his funeral this afternoon.

:00:41.:00:42.

His father said he forgave those who killed him.

:00:43.:00:46.

Thousands turned out at the Bilal Mosque in Harehills

:00:47.:00:48.

before attending a vigil close to the spot where he died.

:00:49.:00:51.

A community united in grief, thousands packed the Bilal Mosque

:00:52.:01:04.

in Harehills for the funeral of Irfan Wahid.

:01:05.:01:09.

As a friend, as a brother, he was humble, very fearless,

:01:10.:01:13.

he was full of love and he was always smiling.

:01:14.:01:17.

Today we have had an amazing turnout from everyone.

:01:18.:01:19.

It's not just Muslims, we've had people from all communities that

:01:20.:01:27.

have turned up to show the support for our brother.

:01:28.:01:30.

Irfan died from a single stab wound to the chest after he was attacked

:01:31.:01:35.

This morning a 16-year-old boy appeared before Leeds Crown Court

:01:36.:01:41.

charged with murder and possession of a knife.

:01:42.:01:47.

Today's funeral was a celebration of a life lived.

:01:48.:01:50.

Then an hour later people gathered close to the place

:01:51.:01:54.

Remember, Iffy isn't dead, he is alive in our hearts and,

:01:55.:01:58.

as his dad said to me, don't remember how he died,

:01:59.:02:01.

Among those paying their respects at today's vigil, two former

:02:02.:02:07.

teachers, who remembered Iffy with great fondness.

:02:08.:02:13.

He was dedicated to learning, he made really good progress,

:02:14.:02:16.

he was an asset to the school, a great community member,

:02:17.:02:20.

really well liked by everybody and such a popular boy.

:02:21.:02:24.

I remember that smile, that smile could change the world.

:02:25.:02:29.

And I remember ducking into the cupboard to have to laugh

:02:30.:02:32.

so I could tell him off when he had done something a little bit naughty

:02:33.:02:36.

A great young man who brought people together.

:02:37.:02:41.

Irfan's death is one of three fatalities in Harehills

:02:42.:02:43.

over recent weeks - two stabbings, one shooting

:02:44.:02:46.

and three lives lost, a sequence of events that's

:02:47.:02:50.

Today was more than simply saying goodbye to a popular young man

:02:51.:02:57.

with the best years ahead of him, it was a symbol of togetherness

:02:58.:03:00.

Next tonight, there's growing anger in the Sheffield diocese

:03:01.:03:09.

about the appointment of a new bishop who doesn't

:03:10.:03:11.

Philip North takes up his position in June, but a female vicar

:03:12.:03:17.

says his views make the Church of England look like

:03:18.:03:19.

My family are from Doncaster, my grandfather...

:03:20.:03:26.

The Right Reverend Philip North, very soon to be

:03:27.:03:28.

He'll be installed this summer, but the appointment has been met

:03:29.:03:32.

with dismay by some clergy in South Yorkshire, because he

:03:33.:03:36.

Although Bishop Philip is very clear that he stands for equality,

:03:37.:03:42.

and wants to see women flourish and he's really clear about that,

:03:43.:03:47.

I think the very fact that he won't ordain women himself

:03:48.:03:52.

has the potential to give out a really negative message,

:03:53.:03:55.

that somehow the Church of England is a discriminatory organisation.

:03:56.:04:01.

There was a similar outcry when he was nominated

:04:02.:04:04.

for the Bishop of Whitby, so much so that he withdrew.

:04:05.:04:08.

Philip North was consecrated at a similar time to the first woman

:04:09.:04:11.

bishop in the Church of England, Libby Lane.

:04:12.:04:14.

Despite their differences, the two are friends.

:04:15.:04:17.

He maintains his opinions on the ordination of women

:04:18.:04:20.

will not hinder his working relationships in Sheffield.

:04:21.:04:22.

When Bishop Philip is installed here at Sheffield Cathedral

:04:23.:04:38.

in June, he'll be in charge of around 70 women.

:04:39.:04:41.

He's already held a meeting with some of them in Doncaster,

:04:42.:04:44.

so will they be able to turn to him for advice, given his views?

:04:45.:04:50.

Everyone I speak to speaks exceptionally highly of him

:04:51.:04:52.

when they get to know him, when they're working with him.

:04:53.:04:55.

People who perhaps expected not to get on with him are finding

:04:56.:04:58.

he's one of the best supporters that they've got.

:04:59.:05:01.

In his current role as Bishop of Burnley clergy

:05:02.:05:06.

Now, they praise his ability to support and include.

:05:07.:05:12.

I honestly think, once the women of Sheffield work with him,

:05:13.:05:15.

they will realise how amazing he is and their doubts

:05:16.:05:18.

The incoming bishop says he will ensure all clergy in his care feel

:05:19.:05:24.

Heidi Tomlinson, BBC Look North, Sheffield.

:05:25.:05:31.

Earlier I spoke to Dr Rachel Muers, a senior lecturer in

:05:32.:05:33.

Christian Studies at the University of Leeds,

:05:34.:05:36.

Well, it's unusual but it's not unprecedented.

:05:37.:05:42.

There are other bishops who don't ordain women.

:05:43.:05:46.

The Church of England has been ordaining women for more than

:05:47.:05:49.

20 years now but it's stated, it stated again recently that

:05:50.:05:55.

it wants to ensure that there's provision within the church

:05:56.:05:59.

for people who, for theological reasons, for principal reasons,

:06:00.:06:04.

So there are this minority within the church, including

:06:05.:06:11.

So in practical terms, are we not going to be see

:06:12.:06:16.

women vicars in his diocese while he's bishop?

:06:17.:06:19.

Well, no, there are lots of women priests within the diocese

:06:20.:06:23.

of Sheffield and I understand that Philip North's already met

:06:24.:06:25.

with them, there has already been a lot of discussion about

:06:26.:06:30.

He will ordain women as deacons and then the normal thing in these

:06:31.:06:37.

situations would be for another bishop to ordain women

:06:38.:06:42.

to the priesthood within the diocese so that we can go on having,

:06:43.:06:47.

allowing for women's priesthood within the diocese.

:06:48.:06:50.

But some people would see this as discrimination, wouldn't they?

:06:51.:06:53.

Are we likely to see some women vicars put off applying

:06:54.:06:56.

It's important to see this is an ongoing issue

:06:57.:07:04.

It's something which the Church of England has said again recently

:07:05.:07:12.

at the point where they decided that women could become bishops,

:07:13.:07:16.

recognised again that this was still a grouping

:07:17.:07:20.

within the church and still something for which provision

:07:21.:07:22.

While that's the case these kind of tensions are still going to rise.

:07:23.:07:29.

Rachel Muers, thank you for joining us.

:07:30.:07:32.

The 15-year-old girl accused of the murder of seven-year-old

:07:33.:07:35.

Katie Rough in York in January has pleaded not guilty.

:07:36.:07:37.

The teenager, who can't be named for legal reasons,

:07:38.:07:39.

Katie was attacked on playing fields in the Woodthorpe area

:07:40.:07:45.

of York on January 9th. She died in hospital later.

:07:46.:07:48.

Police made an arrest shortly afterwards.

:07:49.:07:50.

The accused girl has been remanded into the care of the local

:07:51.:07:53.

Planning permission for a new theme park in South Yorkshire has been

:07:54.:07:59.

granted by Rotherham Council subject to Secretary of State approval.

:08:00.:08:03.

It's hoped the ?37 million development on the former

:08:04.:08:07.

Pithouse West colliery site would create more than 400 jobs.

:08:08.:08:11.

Gullivers, the company behind the project, runs theme

:08:12.:08:13.

Leeds United co-owner Massimo Cellino is to stay

:08:14.:08:21.

in position at the helm of the club, for the time being at least.

:08:22.:08:24.

His proposed ban by the Football Association has today been suspended

:08:25.:08:28.

Cellino was due to begin a 12-month suspension

:08:29.:08:33.

after being found guilty of breaching the FA's

:08:34.:08:36.

But in his appeal Cellino alleges that the decision was unfair

:08:37.:08:40.

And in Super League it was a disappointing night

:08:41.:08:47.

The first half was a tug of war, but at the break Salford

:08:48.:08:53.

began to pull away and things seemed lost for the Giants.

:08:54.:08:56.

But in a game of two halves they brought it back coming

:08:57.:08:59.

close to drawing with two tries from Mellor.

:09:00.:09:01.

It wasn't enough, and a late penalty sealed the 20-30 win for Salford

:09:02.:09:07.

Now a look at the weather forecast with Owain Wyn Evans.

:09:08.:09:15.

We have had some improvements already this week. It is starting to

:09:16.:09:21.

feel a little bit milder. Thanks very much. There is going to be some

:09:22.:09:27.

sunshine on the way but I think what we will notice if the temperatures,

:09:28.:09:31.

they will keep on rising. That trajectory will stick with us. Here

:09:32.:09:35.

is the satellite picture from earlier. We will look at some

:09:36.:09:41.

weather watchers pictures. There were some sunny spells. OK, a bit

:09:42.:09:49.

cloudy across parts of North Yorks. A bit breezy on the bench, I reckon.

:09:50.:09:56.

Overnight we will see a of dry weather out there. We have this

:09:57.:10:01.

feature, weather front pushing in to western part and temperatures

:10:02.:10:05.

getting down to three Celsius. Chile, mostly dry, a bit of drizzle

:10:06.:10:11.

across western parts. Tomorrow, there is a lot of dry weather

:10:12.:10:15.

around. We will see some brightness but the cloud wishes over towards

:10:16.:10:21.

eastern parts but still coastal part hanging on to the best of the

:10:22.:10:26.

brightness with highs of 10 Celsius. Tomorrow night, a repeat performance

:10:27.:10:31.

but a d j view, it gets a bit further to the east and we will see

:10:32.:10:38.

some bits of rain as well. I will show you the pressure chart. I

:10:39.:10:42.

pressure is in charge. Let us take a closer look. Air in a clockwise

:10:43.:10:48.

fashion drawing in the milder air and that will stay with us. For the

:10:49.:10:52.

weekend, I reckon you will get a picnic, it will be mostly dry.

:10:53.:10:59.

Monday, 13 sources in February. Those temperatures keep on going up.

:11:00.:11:00.

I will leave forthcoming weekend. Here is Nick

:11:01.:11:06.

Miller with a resume of the National weather picture.

:11:07.:11:11.

Hello, rain for some of us today although it won't make much of a

:11:12.:11:14.

dent in the dry winter so far across much of the UK. A few threatening

:11:15.:11:19.

clouds in Cumbria but more than a threat of rain across the pond for

:11:20.:11:23.

Friday. The wettest weather system of the season is over heading into

:11:24.:11:27.

California, and there have been a few, with copious amounts of rain

:11:28.:11:31.

and lots of mountain snow. Record-breaking wet winter so far in

:11:32.:11:36.

parts of California. In Los Angeles this might be conservative, 50-100

:11:37.:11:38.

millimetres of

:11:39.:11:40.
