Welcome to Look North. news teams where you are.

:00:00.:00:00.

The main news from around Yorkshire today: A ?50 million factory and 200

:00:00.:00:07.

jobs for South Yorkshire as supercar manufacturer Mclaren roll into town.

:00:08.:00:13.

De-cluttering York's medieval streets.

:00:14.:00:15.

The council cracks down on advertising boards on the pavements.

:00:16.:00:30.

The luxury supercar manufacturer McLaren has officially announced

:00:31.:00:33.

this lunchtime it's going to build a ?50 million

:00:34.:00:36.

factory in South Yorkshire, creating 200 jobs.

:00:37.:00:40.

The factory will build parts for the supercars at the University

:00:41.:00:43.

Our Business Correspondent Danni Hewson reports.

:00:44.:00:51.

These beauties behind me are exactly the

:00:52.:00:56.

ones that here in South Yorkshire we are going to be helping make to

:00:57.:01:03.

That is because McLaren have announced a ?50 million investment

:01:04.:01:16.

in building chassis and I'm joined now by the Chief Executive,

:01:17.:01:18.

We looked long and hard about where we were going to

:01:19.:01:23.

develop this facility and Sheffield really was the obvious answer to it

:01:24.:01:26.

Sheffield University have done a huge amount

:01:27.:01:29.

of work on advanced lightweight structures, that is what our cars

:01:30.:01:32.

The City Council have been amazingly supportive in putting this together.

:01:33.:01:35.

The University, ourselves and the City Council.

:01:36.:01:38.

There is also a great pool of skilled people here that we can

:01:39.:01:41.

We have put the whole thing together.

:01:42.:01:45.

Sheffield actually became the obvious answer for us.

:01:46.:01:47.

We talked a lot in the past about engineering,

:01:48.:01:49.

With these cars it must make a difference in

:01:50.:01:53.

how particularly kids think about it.

:01:54.:01:54.

I don't think there is a young person or a young

:01:55.:02:01.

boy in the world who isn't attracted by cars like this.

:02:02.:02:03.

I have spent 34 years in the automotive and an manufacturing

:02:04.:02:08.

industry and I love it and it is exciting.

:02:09.:02:11.

Particularly exciting when this is the fruit

:02:12.:02:12.

I think it is inspirational for people.

:02:13.:02:17.

They have amazingly already recruited their first apprentice.

:02:18.:02:19.

An advert for more jobs will be running in the paper tomorrow

:02:20.:02:23.

and the first prototype will be coming off the lines

:02:24.:02:25.

The steel giant Tata Steel UK has announced that it's reached

:02:26.:02:35.

an agreement with the Liberty House group to sell its Speciality Steels

:02:36.:02:38.

The sale covers several South Yorkshire-based plants

:02:39.:02:42.

including the electric arc steelworks and bar mill

:02:43.:02:44.

at Rotherham, the steel purifying facility in Stocksbridge and a mill

:02:45.:02:48.

The funeral is taking place this lunchtime of a 16-year

:02:49.:02:55.

old girl who was murdered in South Yorkshire last month.

:02:56.:02:57.

Leonne Weeks' body was found on a path in Dinnington near Rotherham.

:02:58.:03:01.

18-year-old Peter Heeley has been charged with her murder.

:03:02.:03:04.

The funeral service is at St Leonard's church.

:03:05.:03:15.

The service in church I put together with Leona's family.

:03:16.:03:18.

She loved music and that is going to be represented

:03:19.:03:21.

strongly in the service, both by recorded music and by her friend

:03:22.:03:25.

singing, which is I think a lovely thing for him to do.

:03:26.:03:31.

Latest figures show that all the hospital trusts

:03:32.:03:33.

in our region failed to meet the government's A target

:03:34.:03:35.

in December with the exception of Sheffield Children's Hospital.

:03:36.:03:43.

Guidelines say that 95% of patients should be

:03:44.:03:45.

The figures released by NHS England show that the Mid Yorkshire Trust

:03:46.:03:50.

only managed 77% of patients in that time, while Leeds Teaching Hospitals

:03:51.:03:53.

Officers from North Yorkshire Police Road Crime team had a busy night.

:03:54.:04:05.

They spotted a four by four with false number

:04:06.:04:08.

plates towing this generator using a flimsy strap.

:04:09.:04:21.

One wheel fell off, causing these sparks.

:04:22.:04:23.

Police pursued the vehicle along the A19 at Askham when the generator

:04:24.:04:26.

finally slipped its moorings as it went off-road.

:04:27.:04:28.

They haven't yet arrested anyone in connection with the incident,

:04:29.:04:30.

but are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

:04:31.:04:32.

Officials will discuss more than 80 recommendations made in a report

:04:33.:04:35.

More than 600 homes and businesses were badly affected

:04:36.:04:39.

Councillors say they've already got an action plan

:04:40.:04:43.

and will meet later to talk about what else they

:04:44.:04:45.

York City Council has claimed its ban on pavement

:04:46.:04:54.

It's a year-long trial and the council says the city's

:04:55.:04:58.

streets have seen a marked decrease in just the first week.

:04:59.:05:00.

The ban is an attempt to de-clutter the ancient narrow streets.

:05:01.:05:04.

But some shops owners say it could harm their trade.

:05:05.:05:08.

Here's Ian Reeve our business correspondent.

:05:09.:05:11.

Gillygate, home to some of York's quirkiest shops.

:05:12.:05:15.

He advertises his gaming business with a board on the

:05:16.:05:18.

But the council has banned them from the city.

:05:19.:05:29.

Removing so called A boards will give pedestrians a

:05:30.:05:31.

The first few months I was here, I'd say 90% of the people that

:05:32.:05:36.

came into the shot came in because they saw my A board.

:05:37.:05:39.

This street that we are on, Gillygate, is not

:05:40.:05:41.

In a very narrow, so you wouldn't want to walk down here

:05:42.:05:47.

unless something dragged your attention.

:05:48.:05:54.

You know, A boards are the cheapest way to get people's

:05:55.:05:58.

The council said the ban is a year-long trial to de-clutter

:05:59.:06:02.

I don't think it's anti-business, at all.

:06:03.:06:05.

I think we don't want to prevent businesses, we

:06:06.:06:08.

We are doing lots of things in the city to

:06:09.:06:12.

And I can see why they would say that, but the A boards can be

:06:13.:06:24.

We're working with the planning authority purely and simply to make

:06:25.:06:28.

sure that we help them as much as we possibly can.

:06:29.:06:31.

For Diane, the ban has been long awaited.

:06:32.:06:33.

As it has by York's estimated total of 6,000

:06:34.:06:36.

When you have got limited vision, it is

:06:37.:06:39.

Particularly in areas where there is not just

:06:40.:06:53.

street cafes, there are binbags, there are benches.

:06:54.:06:56.

Any number of different things that you can bump

:06:57.:06:58.

A boards are something that we can do something about.

:06:59.:07:02.

Thankfully, the council has decided to do that.

:07:03.:07:09.

A week in, and the council says the ban is working.

:07:10.:07:16.

Keep the advertising board ban, says Lee, and there will

:07:17.:07:20.

It's happy birthday today for a very special Yorkshirewoman who's reached

:07:21.:07:25.

Doreen Brigham wrote the words for the BBC's specially commissioned

:07:26.:07:34.

Symphony for Yorkshire when she was only 98.

:07:35.:07:36.

She worked with hundreds of musicians at nearly 50

:07:37.:07:38.

locations in the county to produce a remarkable legacy of music.

:07:39.:07:49.

Happy birthday. We were promised the beast from the east, look what has

:07:50.:08:00.

rocked in. New suit, love? I saw the man in McLaren. It has been thick

:08:01.:08:09.

enough to produce a few wintry flurries. This little disturbance

:08:10.:08:13.

might make showers more frequent. Covering of snow. Rain and sleet

:08:14.:08:22.

more likely. It is cold out there. A few flurries. Temperatures

:08:23.:08:27.

struggling. 0 Celsius. Maximum temperature we are expecting first

:08:28.:08:33.

short period of time. That is 37 Fahrenheit. Heading through this

:08:34.:08:37.

evening and overnight, cloudy skies continue with a scattering of light

:08:38.:08:41.

snow flows. A bit of sleet with them. Untreated services with

:08:42.:08:47.

temperatures generally speaking at or below freezing point. Friday is a

:08:48.:08:53.

broad day again. A cloudy one with a scattering of mainly like to sleet

:08:54.:08:57.

and snow showers. The emphasis is still on a great deal of dry

:08:58.:09:03.

weather. Those showers become more frequent. Friday night into Saturday

:09:04.:09:10.

morning. Rain, sleet and hill snow coming into Saturday morning. Sunday

:09:11.:09:14.

through early next week, temperatures will gradually will

:09:15.:09:16.

ride and by the middle of next week, it should be some what milder. That

:09:17.:09:22.

is the forecast. Lovely. Right. All is to sell a few more motors and

:09:23.:09:29.

some patio doors. Stop it! That is it from us. Steve later.

:09:30.:09:44.

Wales! Ireland!

:09:45.:09:47.

The Roman Empire! CHEERING

:09:48.:09:49.

Shirley Bassey. Tom Jones, obviously.

:09:50.:09:54.

Jonny Wilkinson's feet. THEY ROAR

:09:55.:09:59.

Invented the bicycle. The internet.

:10:00.:10:02.

Telephone. Bagpipes.

:10:03.:10:04.

Come on, Wales. THEY ROAR

:10:05.:10:18.
