Eddie Jones, about to win the Six Nations

0:00:000:00:07

The latest phase of a multi-million-pound project

0:00:070:00:10

to redevelop Barnsley opened today.

0:00:100:00:14

The Market Parade is a temporary home for traders during work

0:00:140:00:16

to revitalise the town centre.

0:00:160:00:19

It's hoped the new facilities will boost the local economy.

0:00:190:00:22

Abi Jaiyeola reports.

0:00:220:00:27

A fanfare to celebrate the latest stage in

0:00:270:00:29

the transformation of Barnsley -

0:00:290:00:31

the official opening of Market Parade.

0:00:310:00:34

It's all part of the Better Barnsley ?120 million scheme

0:00:340:00:36

which we launched on Wednesday.

0:00:370:00:38

We are bringing in Cineworld and Superbowl,

0:00:380:00:40

and rejuvenating the market.

0:00:400:00:43

The market is right at the heart of the scheme in Barnsley.

0:00:430:00:45

The temporary hall is now home to 73 stalls and four cafes.

0:00:450:00:49

Traders moved out of the old market hall, which will be redeveloped.

0:00:490:00:53

There had been some concerns about these plans from nearby local

0:00:530:00:57

businesses, who have had to close and move during the works,

0:00:570:01:00

but today stallholders are feeling positive.

0:01:000:01:03

Around here, it was looking old and shabby.

0:01:030:01:07

We've come in here now, and I'm quite happy with it.

0:01:070:01:11

I think they've made a decent job of it.

0:01:110:01:14

The setting is nice. The people are nice.

0:01:140:01:16

My customers have come back. Everything is OK.

0:01:160:01:18

We have been waiting for it for a long time.

0:01:180:01:20

Things have got a bit stagnant.

0:01:200:01:22

Hopefully when we are in there everything will improve.

0:01:220:01:25

The hope is that revamping the area will encourage more shoppers

0:01:250:01:28

to spend more shoppers to spend their money

0:01:280:01:30

and stimulate the local economy.

0:01:300:01:33

I think it's lovely and I can't wait for Barnsley to be finished.

0:01:330:01:36

It's going to be so much nicer.

0:01:360:01:38

I'm really, really delighted.

0:01:380:01:40

It looks OK for now.

0:01:400:01:42

Like I say, it's the first time I've been in, like, so...

0:01:420:01:44

But everything looks tidy and clean for a change.

0:01:440:01:47

It's needed this to give it a lift, so hopefully it will give the rest

0:01:470:01:51

of the town a lift as well.

0:01:510:01:53

Today is another step towards a better Barnsley.

0:01:530:01:57

As development continues, traders and shoppers are all keen

0:01:570:01:59

to see the town flourish.

0:01:590:02:02

Abi Jaiyeola, BBC Look North, Barnsley.

0:02:020:02:06

Residents in Ingleton in North Yorkshire have been allowed

0:02:060:02:09

to return home after a fire.

0:02:090:02:10

Several properties were evacuated as a precaution last night

0:02:100:02:13

as Blue Line Auto Logistics went up in flames.

0:02:130:02:17

No-one was hurt and roads in the area are now back to normal.

0:02:170:02:22

A memorial's been unveiled at a school in Leeds to mark

0:02:220:02:25

the sacrifice made by Indian soldiers in both World Wars.

0:02:250:02:28

More than a million Indian soldiers served in World War one,

0:02:280:02:32

and over 74,000 died.

0:02:320:02:35

The statue commemorates Captain Ishar Singh,

0:02:350:02:37

who was the first Sikh to be awarded the Victoria Cross.

0:02:370:02:41

He showed great valour by being injured, and at the same

0:02:410:02:44

time as being injured he defended medical officers who came

0:02:440:02:48

to treat those soldiers that were wounded on the battlefield,

0:02:480:02:53

and he had taken many body wounds to the chest himself.

0:02:530:02:59

Onto the football, Sheffield Wednesday lost 2-0 at Aston Villa.

0:02:590:03:02

Barnsley conceded a late goal to draw with Ipswich.

0:03:020:03:04

Huddersfield opened up a five-point gap over Leeds,

0:03:040:03:06

after they beat Brentford, and Leeds were held at home to QPR.

0:03:060:03:09

Rotherham lost at Wolves.

0:03:090:03:13

Speaking in the last few minute, the Leeds head coach

0:03:130:03:15

was disappointed with a point.

0:03:150:03:18

Yeah, the positives are it's a clean sheet and a point,

0:03:180:03:21

but there's no excuses.

0:03:210:03:23

We never did enough in the game to win that game.

0:03:230:03:30

In League One, Chesterfield drew 1-1 with Shrewsbury.

0:03:300:03:32

Bradford are up to fourth after a two-win at Coventry.

0:03:320:03:37

Doncaster remain four points clear in League two after a 2-0

0:03:370:03:40

win against Cheltenham.

0:03:400:03:43

Sheffield's Nick Matthew is to donate the prize money

0:03:430:03:46

from his latest victory to help a boy with a brain tumour.

0:03:460:03:49

Matthew won the Canary Wharf Classic, a record sixth

0:03:490:03:52

victory in the event.

0:03:520:03:54

He'll give ?10,000 to 11-year-old Sumner Malik, a keen squash player

0:03:540:03:59

who needs expensive treatment.

0:03:590:04:02

In badminton, Leeds pair Chris and Gabby Adcock

0:04:020:04:04

suffered terrible luck, missing out on the first British

0:04:040:04:07

place in an All England Badminton Championship final for a decade.

0:04:070:04:12

Chris suffered a broken string when they held match point.

0:04:120:04:15

They eventually lost to the fifth seeds from China.

0:04:150:04:21

Now let's take a look at the weather.

0:04:210:04:25

Good evening.

0:04:250:04:26

Well, very limited brightness today,

0:04:260:04:27

perhaps only from our spring flowers,

0:04:270:04:29

and they might be grateful for what is to come tonight -

0:04:290:04:32

an area of rain which is working its way in from the west.

0:04:320:04:35

There will be some heavy bursts in there as well,

0:04:350:04:37

and we will get a few breaks further south,

0:04:370:04:39

but temperatures holding up under that cloud and rain,

0:04:390:04:41

lows of nine or ten Celsius.

0:04:410:04:43

Exceptionally mild.

0:04:430:04:44

For tomorrow, we start off with the rain steadily

0:04:440:04:46

marching its way eastwards.

0:04:460:04:47

There will be a slice of something bright through the day,

0:04:470:04:50

and perhaps some sunshine at times.

0:04:500:04:51

Temperatures up to 13 Celsius as well,

0:04:510:04:53

so it's staying lovely and mild, and we've got some bright spells

0:04:530:04:56

to start the working week.

0:04:560:04:59

That's it from us.

0:04:590:05:00

Goodbye.
