BBC Look North, Baildon. South Yorkshire Police

:03:30.:03:36.

and Sheffield Council have been told to change the way they deal

:03:37.:03:38.

with protests against The multi-million-pound scheme

:03:39.:03:42.

to replace trees and repair pavements has been controversial

:03:43.:03:46.

and led to arrests. Now, South Yorkshire's

:03:47.:03:49.

Police Commissioner Dr Alan Billings has said the whole issue

:03:50.:03:51.

is being handled badly. We will have legal reaction

:03:52.:03:55.

in a minute, but, first,

:03:56.:03:57.

this report from John Cundy. By night and day across Sheffield,

:03:58.:04:01.

trees deemed to be dangerous Are you proud of your city?

:04:02.:04:04.

You are shouting. Some have been taken to court

:04:05.:04:09.

but their cases were dropped. So far, 14 tree-felling protesters

:04:10.:04:14.

like heritage writer Calvin Payne, All of those cases

:04:15.:04:21.

thrown out of court. Now the police and the council

:04:22.:04:28.

are being told they are going to have to find different ways

:04:29.:04:30.

of solving this long-running Calvin Payne says his

:04:31.:04:33.

fellow protesters will be I would tell them now that we will

:04:34.:04:36.

only let you do what we decide as a community that we are going

:04:37.:04:43.

to let you do. So if they want to do their work,

:04:44.:04:45.

they need to come and talk to us, but we are not going to accept that

:04:46.:04:49.

150-year-old tree is felled for Meanwhile, South Yorkshire's Police

:04:50.:04:52.

Commissioner says the way the prosecutions have been handled

:04:53.:04:58.

has been wasting time and money. In a sense, it is over to you,

:04:59.:05:02.

Sheffield City Council, to find out a political solution,

:05:03.:05:04.

but if they think that this can be resolved by the police taking action

:05:05.:05:08.

and bringing arrests under trade union legislation,

:05:09.:05:14.

that clearly isn't going to happen because the Crown Prosecution

:05:15.:05:18.

Service won't allow it. There is a difference

:05:19.:05:21.

between protesting and preventing, and the protesters,

:05:22.:05:23.

if they are preventing the legal work and our responsibilities,

:05:24.:05:27.

then I would ask them to consider this and stand to one

:05:28.:05:29.

side, and allow us to South Yorkshire Police say

:05:30.:05:33.

they acknowledge the dropping of the legal actions,

:05:34.:05:37.

but have added... The controversial tree-felling

:05:38.:05:51.

is due to be completed by the end of this year,

:05:52.:05:53.

whether or not protests continue. John Cundy,

:05:54.:05:57.

BBC Look North, Sheffield. Earlier, I spoke to James

:05:58.:06:01.

Littlehales, a criminal barrister. I asked him what he thought

:06:02.:06:03.

of the Police Crime Commissioner dismissing further arrests under

:06:04.:06:06.

trade union laws. I thought all along

:06:07.:06:11.

that they were in some difficulties arresting

:06:12.:06:15.

and trying to prosecute people Certainly, for example, people

:06:16.:06:18.

who were on their own private land, And I know the Crown

:06:19.:06:23.

Prosecution Service have taken the view about it,

:06:24.:06:28.

the various cases that there have been, and not proceeded with them,

:06:29.:06:31.

and I can't say I'm shocked at all. Yeah, that's what they've

:06:32.:06:34.

said, haven't they? The CPS have said they are not going

:06:35.:06:36.

to pursue charges because they don't want to criminalise people

:06:37.:06:39.

for peaceful protests. I think you must have the right

:06:40.:06:41.

to protest peacefully, and it would appear lawfully,

:06:42.:06:46.

in the circumstances now. So, the police are now placing it

:06:47.:06:50.

back with the politicians, saying they need to take

:06:51.:06:53.

a more active role. Will they, then,

:06:54.:06:55.

use civil injunctions? The remedy for Sheffield

:06:56.:06:58.

would be civil injunctions The problem there is it's

:06:59.:07:00.

the council tax payers of Sheffield who are effectively funding any

:07:01.:07:05.

actions against themselves. What would you say politicians

:07:06.:07:09.

will be thinking right now, knowing that the Police

:07:10.:07:11.

Crime Commissioner has said, I would be surprised

:07:12.:07:14.

if they use a number Their concern must be

:07:15.:07:21.

that they don't wish to alienate The Crown Prosecution Service has

:07:22.:07:28.

received files from police in West Yorkshire, Derbyshire

:07:29.:07:35.

and Nottinghamshire in relation Around 20 forces across the country

:07:36.:07:37.

have been looking at the expenses of Conservative MPs in marginal

:07:38.:07:43.

seats, to see if the costs of activists being bussed

:07:44.:07:48.

in for support should have The constituencies involved

:07:49.:07:51.

haven't been named. A fundraising page set up in memory

:07:52.:07:57.

of a 14-year-old Sheffield boy who died following a kickboxing

:07:58.:08:00.

fight has raised more than ?4,000. Scott Marsden died a few days

:08:01.:08:04.

after collapsing during a kickboxing title fight in Leeds

:08:05.:08:08.

on Saturday night. Yorkshire Ambulance Service has

:08:09.:08:11.

responded to criticism of its response to the incident

:08:12.:08:14.

from the president of the World Kickboxing

:08:15.:08:21.

Association, England. It says it worked

:08:22.:08:23.

tirelessly to save Scott. A teenager arrested in connection

:08:24.:08:24.

with the death of a woman who was hit by a car in Doncaster

:08:25.:08:27.

has been released on bail. 62-year-old grandmother Susan Gravel

:08:28.:08:30.

was knocked down in Stainforth A 17-year-old boy who arrested

:08:31.:08:32.

on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving has been bailed

:08:33.:08:37.

while inquiries continue. A water pump has been unveiled

:08:38.:08:44.

in York in honour of the scientist who first discovered that Cholera

:08:45.:08:47.

was a waterborne disease. Dr John Snow was born

:08:48.:08:51.

in the city in 1813. Today his descendants and academics

:08:52.:08:54.

from the University of York gathered Dr Snow's research helped

:08:55.:08:57.

end a cholera epidemic He was also

:08:58.:09:02.

Queen Victoria's anaesthetist. People know about his work

:09:03.:09:08.

on cholera perhaps more than his work on anaesthesia,

:09:09.:09:11.

but I think his history is really, sort of, focused very

:09:12.:09:17.

much on his London time, and his connections to York

:09:18.:09:20.

are not very well-known, and I think it's a good thing that

:09:21.:09:24.

we're having more prominence Now let's take a look

:09:25.:09:27.

at the weather. It has been lovely today. Absolutely

:09:28.:09:39.

sunny and it felt like maybe instead of March. Up to 15 Celsius. Say

:09:40.:09:45.

goodbye to the dry and fine and sunny and mild weather, because

:09:46.:09:49.

unsettled for Friday and the weekend. Tomorrow a transitional day

:09:50.:09:53.

with more cloud and cooler, with a bit of rain in most places staying

:09:54.:09:59.

dry. It has been settled but the pressure chart means lots of low

:10:00.:10:02.

pressure and a fast moving jet stream pushing in our direction,

:10:03.:10:04.

with several weather fronts through with several weather fronts through

:10:05.:10:08.

Friday in the weekend. Quite blustery conditions as well with

:10:09.:10:15.

tightly packed isobars. Some isolated miss Venus through this

:10:16.:10:17.

evening and then generally a bit more cloud through the west

:10:18.:10:22.

overnight. Merely for western and north-western part. Seven or eight

:10:23.:10:29.

Celsius. The best sunshine tomorrow through the morning and away from

:10:30.:10:33.

the hills. Gradually everywhere, a bit more cloud developing through

:10:34.:10:35.

the day, before becoming overcast the day, before becoming overcast

:10:36.:10:40.

during afternoon. Rain in the north-west edging down from the

:10:41.:10:44.

deals along the Pennines and not much headway until tomorrow evening.

:10:45.:10:48.

When it does, all this rain will fragment. Like a patchy rain later

:10:49.:10:52.

in the day and soggy through the afternoon in the Dales. Cooler than

:10:53.:10:57.

today with temperatures up to 11 Celsius. A cold start and touch of

:10:58.:11:00.

frost on Friday and windy day with rain for the hills. That's it from

:11:01.:11:02.

the late been. The outlook, rain around, if

:11:03.:11:05.

it stays dry I will be surprised. Here is Nick with the national

:11:06.:11:06.

headlines. For large parts of Wales and England

:11:07.:11:23.

there was blue sky and warmth. Warmest day of the year, a clumsy

:11:24.:11:29.

way of saying the UK had the highest temperature of the year so far.

:11:30.:11:39.

There have been big contrasts. Some of that misty, murky weather to the

:11:40.:11:42.

south-west is advancing across other parts of England and Wales through

:11:43.:11:46.

the night. Ahead of that, where we have clear spells, central and

:11:47.:11:49.

eastern England there could be fog patches developing, outbreaks of

:11:50.:11:52.

rain
