Good evening. at 11pm - now on BBC1 its time
Police in Leeds have launched a third murder inquiry
in the Harehills area in just over two weeks.
Five people have been arrested following the death of a man
who was found seriously injured in the early hours of this morning.
Meanwhile, floral tributes have been left at the scene
of an incident on Friday, which left a 16 year-old boy dead.
A 15 year-old arrested on suspicion of murder has now been
This afternoon, Harehills Lane has reopened. The police cordon has
gone. A growing pile of floral tributes to the 16-year-old boy
remains. Many have clearly been laid by other young people remembering a
close friend. In a series of tweets, Leeds MP Richard Burden sent his
condolences to the family -- victim's family and friends. He said
it was a shock to a wonderful and strong community. In an unhappy
coincidence, another murder investigation has begun just over
half a mile away. House-to-house enquiries are under way after police
were called here in the early hours of this morning by the ambulance
service. They found a man with serious injuries who died a short
time later. Four men and a woman have been arrested on suspicion of
murder. They are still being questioned. Meanwhile, led this
afternoon, police confirmed a 15-year-old boy questioned in
relation to the death of the 16-year-old on Harehills Lane has
been released without charge. West Yorkshire's Chief Constable has
said she does have concerns over a drama about the kidnapping
of Shannon Matthews. The first of two episodes
of Moorside aired last week. It focuses on the community's
response to the hoax nine years ago. Dee Collins told BBC Radio Leeds she
fears it could re-open old wounds. But says family members and people
in Dewsbury Moor will be listened to, if they have any
new information about the case. 12,000 new homes are being built
across the region every year - but it's claimed that figure needs
to rise to 18,000 if we are going So will the government's
latest housing plans help? Charlotte Rose has
been investigating. The government says it wants to fix
the broken housing market. They say England needs 250,000 new homes a
year. And we aren't building nearly enough. So how will the government
kick-start a house-building revolution? It requires all local
authorities to be a lot more realistic about local need. To
assess that properly and honestly. Secondly, it diversifies the market.
We need a lot more smaller independent builders. We also need
new methods of construction. We also need to make sure that where local
authorities do give planning permission, that planning permission
actually turns into homes. Sajid Javid says he will keep protection
on green belt land except where there are no other options for a
house-building. But not everybody is convinced. Here in Sheffield, there
is no local plan for how land can be used. It means developers can put in
applications like on this land on the outskirts of the village of deep
car. The green belt is up for review as part of the local planning
process, and we don't yet know which areas will be proposed to be taken
out of it. Sheffield should only grow outwards. That is our argument.
If it is making the most use of its inner urban areas. Developers have
problems, too. We have had issues with skills shortages. The hardest
thing is getting young guys interested in coming into the
industry and wanting to work for it. The government says its white Paper
should clear some of the blockages. Labour say it is a damp squid and
will do little to ease the housing crisis.
There was just one game in Superleague this afternoon.
Wakefield Wildcats' season didn't get off to a good start.
It is Wakefield's a defeat in a row in the top flight as they lost all
seven games during the super eight. -- super eights.
Snow has causing disruption on higher ground across
This was the scene on Fleet Moss near Hawes
Snake Pass near Sheffield was also closed.
Police have also told motorists to avoid Greenhow Hill
in Pateley Bridge, because of dangerous conditions.
Is these now going to stay? Let's get the details. Hello. Not
the best weekend of weather but it is said to improve as we move into
the new working week. Still quite a squeeze on the isobars, meaning
strong winds will take the edge of those temperatures. Tuesday, things
will start to feel less cold. Some snow over the highest ground. This
is beginning to fragment. A largely dry picture by Dawn Butler very
cloudy. We shouldn't be at risk of seeing any frost. It will be a
cloudy, windy and cold start to the day. Hill fog around first thing. If
we factor in the cold wind, unexposed coast and over the hills,
it will feel very cold indeed. Temperatures on paper don't look too
bad. Factor in the breeze and it bad. Factor in the breeze and it
will feel bitterly cold. Turning much less cold in the week.
That is all for now. We are back with the late bulletin after the
BAFTAs coverage at 11:20pm. Have a great evening.
