Good evening. for the news where you are.

:00:00.:00:08.

More than 1,000 rail services will be cancelled tomorrow

:00:09.:00:10.

as members of the RMT union go on strike.

:00:11.:00:14.

It's part of a dispute over plans to remove guards from trains.

:00:15.:00:18.

The disruption is likely to make roads much busier than normal

:00:19.:00:21.

It won't be such a straightforward journey for train passengers

:00:22.:00:28.

tomorrow, when the members of the RMT strike.

:00:29.:00:32.

The union are concerned about plans to change the role of guards -

:00:33.:00:36.

currently they open and close doors when a train arrives at a station,

:00:37.:00:39.

but Arriva North want a driver to do that on their own.

:00:40.:00:43.

We believe that having a second person on all trains provides

:00:44.:00:46.

assurances to the travelling public, and it's an additional safety

:00:47.:00:48.

measure in the event that the driver becomes incapacitated.

:00:49.:00:51.

If you are trying to get from Bradford Forster Square

:00:52.:00:53.

into Leeds for a 9am start tomorrow, you might just make it.

:00:54.:00:56.

If you are coming home after work, then your last train

:00:57.:01:02.

But if you need to get home after work from Bradford to Ilkley,

:01:03.:01:07.

The advice to passengers is to make alternative arrangements if you can,

:01:08.:01:13.

It is a similar picture at stations across Yorkshire.

:01:14.:01:19.

More than 1,000 services are cancelled.

:01:20.:01:21.

There will be no services before 7am, and the last trains on most

:01:22.:01:26.

They have got to get to work, the commuters,

:01:27.:01:30.

and I understand them being upset, but what else can they do?

:01:31.:01:33.

How are they going to get their voice heard?

:01:34.:01:37.

It is not good for these people in general.

:01:38.:01:39.

It will affect most of the activities that are going on.

:01:40.:01:43.

For me, I think it is not the right decision, really.

:01:44.:01:47.

If there are no guards, who will help them?

:01:48.:01:49.

Who will be there with the passengers?

:01:50.:01:51.

So, for public safety, it is better to have the guards there.

:01:52.:01:55.

That is the issue that has sparked this dispute,

:01:56.:01:58.

but Arriva North say drivers can operate doors safely on their own.

:01:59.:02:03.

We put safety at the heart of everything that we do.

:02:04.:02:06.

The Independent Rail Regulator has actually indicated that this

:02:07.:02:10.

is as safe as conductor operation of the doors.

:02:11.:02:14.

A tricky commute ahead for passengers tomorrow,

:02:15.:02:17.

with unions warning that, if a deal can't be reached,

:02:18.:02:19.

:02:20.:02:26.

For the latest information on the strike tomorrow,

:02:27.:02:28.

go to BBC.co.dot.uk/Leeds, York or Sheffield,

:02:29.:02:30.

A woman has died after being hit by a stolen car in Doncaster.

:02:31.:02:38.

62-year old grandmother Susan Gravel was knocked down in Stainforth

:02:39.:02:40.

Police believe the silver or grey BMW was stolen.

:02:41.:02:47.

Mrs Gravel's family have called her "loving and caring".

:02:48.:02:52.

A 34-year-old man's been charged with murder following the death

:02:53.:02:55.

Officers were called out to Lanshaw Crescent in Belle Isle

:02:56.:02:58.

A 41-year-old man was found dead at the scene.

:02:59.:03:03.

34-year-old local man David Holgate will appear before

:03:04.:03:06.

You might have noticed some celebrations in Leeds today.

:03:07.:03:12.

It was the 15th St Patrick's Day parade in the city,

:03:13.:03:19.

and thousands of supporters and spectators were there.

:03:20.:03:22.

A convoy of banners, bands and floats took to the streets

:03:23.:03:25.

for a day of "Leeds Going Irish" with celebrations continuing

:03:26.:03:27.

The first St Patrick's Day parade in Leeds was in 1999.

:03:28.:03:37.

On to Super League, Wakefield won a tight match against Salford 24-22.

:03:38.:03:39.

Castleford Tigers showed why they are the early-season

:03:40.:03:41.

Super League leaders with a 34-0 win at Widnes, their fourth in a row.

:03:42.:03:49.

A quick word about something we're looking at on Look North tomorrow -

:03:50.:03:52.

I've been out on patrol with officers from West Yorkshire's

:03:53.:03:54.

Roads Policing Unit as they clamp down on people travelling around

:03:55.:03:57.

It's still a big problem and the cause of many deaths

:03:58.:04:02.

A new campaign gets under way tomorrow.

:04:03.:04:06.

Tune in tomorrow to see what we found when we went out

:04:07.:04:09.

Now let's take a look at the weather.

:04:10.:04:12.

A much colder night in store than we have had in recent nights.

:04:13.:04:16.

A little bit of cloud to get out of the way with first,

:04:17.:04:20.

but then we will be left with clear skies through the night.

:04:21.:04:23.

Under the clear skies, the temperatures will be falling

:04:24.:04:25.

to around four or five Celsius, but we could see a touch of frost

:04:26.:04:28.

That does mean it's going to be quite a cold start tomorrow morning.

:04:29.:04:32.

We will see some spells of sunshine during the morning,

:04:33.:04:35.

clouding over from the north-west as we head into the afternoon,

:04:36.:04:37.

but still the sunshine will break through, and temperatures tomorrow

:04:38.:04:40.

will be getting up to a high of around 13 Celsius.

:04:41.:04:42.

For the rest of the week, it looks fairly decent.

:04:43.:04:47.

Lots of cloud around as we head into Tuesday,

:04:48.:04:50.

We'll be back at 6.25am with the breakfast news.

:04:51.:04:55.

But from all of us here, have a good night.

:04:56.:05:07.

Good evening. For many places it was a fairly cloudy day on suspend but

:05:08.:05:14.

there was sunshine for western areas during the afternoon, and here are

:05:15.:05:17.

the clear skies at sunset in Northern Ireland. Thanks to weather

:05:18.:05:22.

watcher Robin for this picture, those clear skies have been making

:05:23.:05:26.

their way further east ward. Temperatures are dropping away, we

:05:27.:05:30.

have seen temperatures of freezing in parts of Northern Ireland. More

:05:31.:05:34.

cloud rolling in during the latter part of the night but towns and

:05:35.:05:38.

cities down the five and six m the countryside many of us will see the

:05:39.:05:41.

temperatures a degree or so above freezing, so a slight touch of frost

:05:42.:05:44.

across the rural parts of England

:05:45.:05:48.
