The main news from around Yorkshire today: A new advice centre

:00:00.:00:16.

to support former miners and their families opens in Selby.

:00:17.:00:18.

And aiming high - we meet two pole vaulters from South Yorkshire hoping

:00:19.:00:21.

to grab a place on the GB Team for the European Championships.

:00:22.:00:29.

A new advice service for former miners has opened

:00:30.:00:32.

The new service at Selby Community Centre will offer ex-miners

:00:33.:00:37.

and their families support on issues including industrial

:00:38.:00:39.

Phil Bodmer has been there this morning.

:00:40.:00:54.

Last pit closed in 2000 and four, but there are still issues that are

:00:55.:00:59.

being faced. This is the Miners Advice Clinic,

:01:00.:01:02.

it is being held here In 2004, the last pit in the Selby

:01:03.:01:04.

super-pit complex closed, so the obvious question is why has

:01:05.:01:08.

it taken so long to set up Chris Skidmore from the NUM, perhaps

:01:09.:01:12.

you could answer that question. Why haven't we had this kind

:01:13.:01:15.

of advice service before now? It was recognised that something

:01:16.:01:18.

was needed, but at the time it was about whether the workforce

:01:19.:01:21.

was of that age where they had got And at the time, people

:01:22.:01:24.

weren't coming forward. We set up places in the other

:01:25.:01:35.

parts of the coalfield, the ageing part of the coalfield,

:01:36.:01:38.

if you like. Basically, it is now

:01:39.:01:40.

when people are getting older and are finding out that you are not

:01:41.:01:44.

as young as you used to be and that is not as cliche,

:01:45.:01:47.

that is a fact. Simon Cahill, you worked

:01:48.:01:50.

in the local pits for a number of years, what sort of conditions

:01:51.:01:52.

people coming down with? Wear and tear from the

:01:53.:01:56.

conditions they worked in. Knees, vibration white

:01:57.:02:00.

finger, breathing. General things they have picked up

:02:01.:02:03.

from working in harsh conditions. This advice clinic has been set up

:02:04.:02:10.

from backing from the NUM, they hope to hold it on a monthly

:02:11.:02:18.

basis and people who have worked in the pits and do believe they need

advice are encouraged to come along The man behind plan to build

with BBC Radio York he says his plan would enhance Scarborough

as a visitor attraction The UK's Chief Veterinary Officer

:02:49.:02:50.

says he hopes people will keep buying eggs from poultry farmers

:02:51.:02:59.

in Yorkshire who are affected by

:03:00.:03:01.

bird flu restrictions. Farmers in high risk areas

:03:02.:03:03.

have been told they'll have to keep their birds

inside until at least the end of April -

years, York Minster's police are being given the same powers

:03:27.:03:34.

as regular police constables Although they are a private police

:03:35.:03:37.

force, the Cathedral Constables have recently undergone specialist

training and will be able to arrest people,

should they need to. A Victoria Cross awarded to a Leeds

:03:43.:03:44.

soldier for his actions during the Battle of the Somme

:03:45.:03:47.

will be auctioned off next month. George Sanders won the prestigious

:03:48.:03:49.

award for gallantry in 1916. It's being sold along with his

a place on the GB Team for the European titles

in Belgrade next month. Amongst them in Belgrade,

:04:13.:04:19.

we hope, will be two pole vaulters from opposite ends

:04:22.:04:23.

and are equally proud to pull My name's Adam Hague,

I'm 19 and I'm from Rotherham. Cricket, I was a good

when I was like 11, I turned round and said I wanted to be

a pole vaulter. My name's Luke Cutts, I'm 28 years

qualifying for the Olympics, Europeans, World Championships

:04:55.:04:56.

and hopefully Commonwealths And here it is the bad news

:04:57.:04:57.

for Luke Cutts' rivals. Injury frustrations meant no chance

he sees it at a risk. It might be more of a achievement

that he has coached someone He might have a different

Yorkshire lads. Luke Cutts at 28 years old might yet

have a young one to keep an eye Now tonight on Look North

we are behind the scenes at They're currently previewing

their brand new musical The music is written by a member

of the pop group The Feeling and its based on a BBC Three

:06:36.:06:41.

documentary called Jamie: We'll meet the team behind this

:06:42.:06:43.

coming of age story. Now, let's have a look

:06:44.:06:49.

at the weather. Wearing an appropriate dress because

:06:50.:07:02.

it looks like it might be snowy. Yes. We could get some snow. Quite a

:07:03.:07:07.

few of us working up to that. Anywhere above 200 metres could get

:07:08.:07:11.

a few centimetres. More on that second because you might see a feud

:07:12.:07:16.

flakes this afternoon. A few wintry showers about. About. Cloud. Leeds

:07:17.:07:21.

southwards Wilsey breaks in that cloud. Everywhere will have a cold

:07:22.:07:26.

afternoon. It is this feature, this small feature that pushes in later

:07:27.:07:30.

onto night and into tomorrow which will bring a mix of rain, sleet and

:07:31.:07:39.

snow. About 200 metres, we could get quite a few centimetres. Out there

:07:40.:07:44.

at the moment, a lot of cloud. Leeds south, best breaks. We will catch a

:07:45.:07:48.

few of those showers this afternoon. A few snowflakes this afternoon. The

:07:49.:07:52.

odd dusting, it is feeling chilly out there. Along the coast weather

:07:53.:07:58.

breeze will freshen the air. Inland, three degrees. Very cold indeed. It

:07:59.:08:03.

should be about seven at this time of year. We have got a warning out.

:08:04.:08:08.

The north yours and the Pennine chain but we're most likely to see a

:08:09.:08:13.

wintry mix. Also at lower levels overnight perhaps. We could get

:08:14.:08:19.

several centimetres this evening. A lot of cloud. Showers becoming

:08:20.:08:24.

heavier and persistent. A mix of rain, sleet and snow with some

:08:25.:08:30.

accumulation is quite possible above around 200 metres. It will not be a

:08:31.:08:36.

blanket bogs snow because it will be in the form of showers. Tomorrow

:08:37.:08:42.

afternoon, the snow will be confined to the Healy areas. I was up very

:08:43.:08:48.

early this morning. The youngsters at the local school are giving up

:08:49.:08:53.

all of their electrical devices, their telephones, their pads, all

:08:54.:08:57.

the restaurant week. Even the hazy. They are not going to be using the

:08:58.:09:02.

hazy for a week. To you
