More than 2,500 people in our region Jose Mourinho jumping for joy --

:00:00.:00:07.

are expected to die early because of air pollution.

:00:08.:00:10.

One charity involved in campaigning for more Government intervention has

:00:11.:00:13.

told Sunday Politics that it's a bigger health crisis than obesity.

:00:14.:00:18.

Richard Edwards has been to meet a man who went into politics

:00:19.:00:21.

after becoming convinced his baby died because of air pollution

:00:22.:00:25.

Muzafah Rahman was born just a few streets away from one

:00:26.:00:32.

Each day, thousands of vehicles use these roads, and Muzafah's convinced

:00:33.:00:38.

the pollution left behind is to blame for the early

:00:39.:00:41.

My son, who was 15 months old, when he was a baby, I would often

:00:42.:00:46.

take him in his pram through the subways here,

:00:47.:00:50.

through the link, around this beautiful roundabout,

:00:51.:00:53.

where the greenery is, not knowing that I was exposing him

:00:54.:00:56.

to a great disease that would eventually take his life.

:00:57.:01:00.

I am convinced the virus he contracted through

:01:01.:01:05.

the failure of his heart was related to pollution.

:01:06.:01:10.

Cameron died in 1990, when research into casualties from air pollution

:01:11.:01:13.

But 27 years on, there are official concerns.

:01:14.:01:19.

Just two months ago, the Government's Highways England

:01:20.:01:22.

began looking at cutting speed limits on the M1, which, in turn,

:01:23.:01:25.

And it's not just a problem in south Yorkshire.

:01:26.:01:30.

Today, few people would deny that pollution is an issue.

:01:31.:01:33.

This is an air quality management area in Leeds,

:01:34.:01:37.

a place where the problem's so bad the council is taking urgent

:01:38.:01:40.

A study suggests that 700 people will lose their lives

:01:41.:01:45.

this year alone in Leeds from breathing dirty air.

:01:46.:01:49.

Separate research shows that in just one year,

:01:50.:01:53.

3,000 people across our region died after breathing dirty air.

:01:54.:01:58.

We understand that air pollution is a significant

:01:59.:02:01.

risk to public health, on the scale of obesity,

:02:02.:02:03.

and we know that the equivalent figure, in terms of deaths,

:02:04.:02:06.

is around 40,000 equivalent deaths per year is the overall

:02:07.:02:09.

impact of air pollution on our health nationally.

:02:10.:02:13.

The Government's Department for Environment says it's spent more

:02:14.:02:15.

than ?2 billion since 2011 to encourage people to use greener

:02:16.:02:19.

transport and is committed to spending another ?290 million

:02:20.:02:24.

to support electric cars and low emissions buses.

:02:25.:02:31.

York City will return to Wembley in May after victory against Lincoln

:02:32.:02:34.

The Minstermen - who are 22nd in the National League and 39

:02:35.:02:39.

points behind Lincoln - sealed the win with

:02:40.:02:42.

York came into the away league of the semifinal with a 2-1 lead.

:02:43.:02:53.

But Lincoln were the favourites, top of the national league and fresh

:02:54.:02:57.

from a run to the quarterfinals of the FA Cup.

:02:58.:02:59.

And they took the lead in the 66th minute when Sean Raggett converted

:03:00.:03:02.

Nathan Arnold's corner with this header.

:03:03.:03:04.

The goal forced the match into extra time.

:03:05.:03:06.

The game's pivotal moment came when the referee awarded York

:03:07.:03:09.

A shot by Hamza Bencherif was blocked by Luke Waterfall.

:03:10.:03:16.

The referee initially let play continue, but he consulted his

:03:17.:03:18.

assistant as York's players and supporters

:03:19.:03:21.

A penalty was given and Scott Fenwick side

:03:22.:03:25.

footed his shot firmly into Lincoln's net.

:03:26.:03:28.

With no further goals in the extended period,

:03:29.:03:30.

the match ended in a 1-1 draw, putting York through to

:03:31.:03:33.

I remember it five years ago, down at Luton, when we drew 1-1

:03:34.:03:45.

down there, and to play against an excellent side over two

:03:46.:03:48.

legs and come away victorious, it feels magnificent.

:03:49.:04:01.

A dream to play at Wembley. I managed to score the winning goal.

:04:02.:04:06.

York will play Macclesfield in the FA Trophy final

:04:07.:04:08.

Meanwhile, their battle for league survival continues on Tuesday,

:04:09.:04:12.

with a crucial home fixture against Southport.

:04:13.:04:21.

In Super League, two results for you.

:04:22.:04:22.

Salford fought back to end Castleford Tigers' unbeaten start

:04:23.:04:24.

knocking them off the top of the table.

:04:25.:04:28.

Meanwhile, Huddersfield got a point as they battled Wigan in a 16-16

:04:29.:04:31.

In Rugby Union, Doncaster Knights beat their rivals Yorkshire Carnegie

:04:32.:04:40.

by 31 points to 26 in a tight contest.

:04:41.:04:47.

There is only one way those temperatures are going

:04:48.:04:54.

over the next few days and that is right down.

:04:55.:04:57.

Rain clearing tomorrow morning and then it starts turning

:04:58.:05:00.

Not a completely dry night across Yorkshire.

:05:01.:05:03.

We will see some showers, it will, however, be

:05:04.:05:05.

Temperatures down to eight or nine Celsius.

:05:06.:05:10.

Here comes another band of rain, creeping up from the south-west.

:05:11.:05:17.

The air behind this is actually a lot

:05:18.:05:20.

Tomorrow's highs getting to ten or 11, but as that colder air floods

:05:21.:05:26.

down, this is the air mass showing the air

:05:27.:05:29.

temperature essentially, you

:05:30.:05:31.

can see it's going to get a lot colder.

:05:32.:05:33.

A dip in the temperatures on Tuesday, Wednesday, and I think

:05:34.:05:38.

we'll have to watch out for some wintry showers.

:05:39.:05:41.

Hello. For most of March so far it has felt quite mild and springlike

:05:42.:06:16.

but we are in for a bit of a shock next week as we will have a blast of

:06:17.:06:21.

Arctic air across the UK making it feel much cooler than it has of late

:06:22.:06:26.

with wintry showers and a return to overnight frosts for a while. The

:06:27.:06:29.

pressure chart shows more weather fronts pushing into many central and

:06:30.:06:33.

southern parts of the country this evening and overnight it will turn

:06:34.:06:37.

quite wet across parts of England and when is towards the end of the

:06:38.:06:41.

night and across Scotland, Northern Ireland,

:06:42.:06:42.
