Good evening and welcome to Look North.

:00:07.:00:09.

A protest against plans for a new service station on the M1

:00:10.:00:16.

in South Yorkshire that would destroy acres of ancient

:00:17.:00:19.

Developers say the ?40 million scheme at junction thirty five

:00:20.:00:28.

But more than 6,000 people are against the plans.

:00:29.:00:35.

More than 100 people braved the rain to join in today's protest.

:00:36.:00:40.

They don't want to see acres of 12th century woodland bulldozed to make

:00:41.:00:43.

way for a service station, Hotel and shops.

:00:44.:00:45.

Save Smithy Wood! Save Smithy Wood!

:00:46.:00:51.

Our children have used that woodland, we've used that woodland

:00:52.:00:53.

for leisure for the last 20, 30 years.

:00:54.:00:56.

You've only got to go a little way inside and you wouldn't

:00:57.:00:59.

know you were by a motorway because the birdsong is wonderful.

:01:00.:01:02.

Among the protesters were local residents,

:01:03.:01:06.

environment groups and Angela Smith, the MP for Penistone

:01:07.:01:08.

Extra MSA group, the company behind the plans, say...

:01:09.:01:30.

But the Sheffield and Rotherham wildlife

:01:31.:01:31.

trust says nothing can compensate the loss of historic habitat and

:01:32.:01:34.

plans announced this week for another service station

:01:35.:01:36.

at junction 33 could it says provide a better option.

:01:37.:01:38.

There is no point in talking about planting,

:01:39.:01:40.

there is no point in saying, oh, we can manage some

:01:41.:01:43.

On the face of it, it really does look like

:01:44.:01:52.

junction 33 is less ecologically damaging.

:01:53.:01:54.

We think it is potentially a better option and therefore Smithy Wood can

:01:55.:02:01.

be avoided and that's a key planning test, avoid Smithy Wood.

:02:02.:02:03.

A decision on this planning application has been delayed

:02:04.:02:07.

frequently over the past three years.

:02:08.:02:08.

It was due to be made at the end of this month, but that's now

:02:09.:02:12.

Campaigners now say they will fight for this ancient

:02:13.:02:15.

habitat no matter how long the planning process takes.

:02:16.:02:22.

A house fire in Barnsley, in which a woman died yesterday,

:02:23.:02:24.

is thought to have been caused by a small candle.

:02:25.:02:27.

The woman's body was found inside the property

:02:28.:02:30.

in the Staincross area just before tea-time.

:02:31.:02:32.

The house was well alight when fire crews arrived.

:02:33.:02:34.

Investigators at the scene believe a tea-light was to blame.

:02:35.:02:39.

Due to the conditions inside and the smoke

:02:40.:02:42.

conditions, it was very, very

:02:43.:02:44.

So they brought the lady out instantly,

:02:45.:02:49.

but unfortunately, she was pronounced

:02:50.:02:51.

dead by the paramedics on

:02:52.:02:52.

The conclusions at this moment in time that it is an

:02:53.:02:58.

accidental fire caused by either a smoking material or,

:02:59.:03:00.

The mother of missing York chef Claudia Lawrence says she can't

:03:01.:03:09.

sell her daughter's house when she doesn't know

:03:10.:03:11.

Today marks eight years since Claudia disappeared.

:03:12.:03:13.

The 35-year-old was last seen on her way to work.

:03:14.:03:17.

Despite numerous arrests, no-one has been charged.

:03:18.:03:19.

Police have now scaled back the investigation.

:03:20.:03:24.

He played four times scoring 113 runs.

:04:09.:04:13.

:04:14.:04:27.

Overnight, we see a band of rain slowly making its way

:04:28.:04:29.

Temperatures down to eight or nine Celsius.

:04:30.:04:36.

This takes us into a fairly cloudy start

:04:37.:04:38.

We will see outbreaks of rain, mainly across western and

:04:39.:04:41.

I think eastern and northern parts remaining

:04:42.:04:44.

Outbreaks of rain at times on Sunday, it will be colder
