A second girl has died after an apparent hit

:00:14.:00:19.

11-year-old Zaneta Krokova was hit by a car on Ashton Road

:00:20.:00:24.

on New Year's Eve and died this morning.

:00:25.:00:26.

Her 12-year-old cousin Helina Kotlarova died at the scene.

:00:27.:00:27.

Four men aged between 18 and 59 are being questioned

:00:28.:00:30.

on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

:00:31.:00:32.

In an appeal for information, police have released images

:00:33.:00:37.

One of the girls' former teachers says their friends are in shock.

:00:38.:00:43.

A lot of the pupils from our school witnessed the incident as well.

:00:44.:00:47.

It has deeply affected the pupils and

:00:48.:00:55.

it is giving them that support through this difficult time.

:00:56.:00:58.

A soldier from the 2nd Battalion, Duke of Lancaster's Regiment

:00:59.:01:00.

The Battalion is based at Weeton Barracks near Blackpool.

:01:01.:01:03.

The Ministry of Defence has said it happened in Taji in Iraq.

:01:04.:01:06.

The soldier's next of kin have been informed

:01:07.:01:08.

and an investigation is underway but the MoD says

:01:09.:01:12.

it was not the result of enemy activity.

:01:13.:01:14.

Protests have taken place against controversial plans to build

:01:15.:01:16.

more than 220,000 homes across Greater Manchester

:01:17.:01:18.

In Bury, hundreds of people took part in a march through the town.

:01:19.:01:25.

Most of the houses in the plan will be on brownfield sites -

:01:26.:01:28.

but some parts of the green belt are also under threat.

:01:29.:01:31.

A consultation on the plans ends in two weeks.

:01:32.:01:33.

The people of Bury don't feel like they're getting advice.

:01:34.:01:39.

The council just seems to be pushing the spatial

:01:40.:01:43.

We are still bumping into people on the streets who don't

:01:44.:01:49.

It's supposed to be a consultation period.

:01:50.:01:51.

This is what the walk was about today, to raise awareness.

:01:52.:01:54.

As leader of Bury Council I have said that one of my

:01:55.:01:57.

priorities is to get more affordable housing built and prioritise

:01:58.:01:59.

Unfortunately, there is not enough brownfield

:02:00.:02:02.

land available in Bury to

:02:03.:02:03.

deliver the housing targets we've been sent, which is 12,700 by 2035.

:02:04.:02:07.

It means that elements of the green belt may have to be released.

:02:08.:02:11.

Police believe two of the three people found dead at the foot

:02:12.:02:14.

of cliffs near Dover yesterday were a brother and

:02:15.:02:16.

They were discovered after police found the body of another man -

:02:17.:02:21.

who's thought to be in his 40s and from Greater Manchester.

:02:22.:02:24.

Police say the cases are not linked and the deaths are not suspicious.

:02:25.:02:27.

From tomorrow, rail commuters in Merseyside face major delays.

:02:28.:02:29.

Engineering work means there'll be no rail services

:02:30.:02:32.

across the Mersey for six weeks, with further disruption

:02:33.:02:34.

Traffic through the Mersey road tunnels will also be affected.

:02:35.:02:39.

Here's our Merseyside Reporter, Andy Gill.

:02:40.:02:43.

Merseyrail passengers face six months of delays from January

:02:44.:02:50.

3rd, starting with the full closure of the Wirral to Liverpool

:02:51.:02:53.

Will I have to get the ferry at eight o'clock in

:02:54.:02:58.

I don't know what I'm going to have to do.

:02:59.:03:02.

It's going to be a nuisance but, no, not worried.

:03:03.:03:10.

A 40-year-old track bed under the loop line below Liverpool

:03:11.:03:12.

and in the Mersey rail tunnel needs replacing.

:03:13.:03:14.

No major intervention works have taken place

:03:15.:03:16.

It is about time to replace the track and bring it

:03:17.:03:22.

forward into the 21st-century and make it a safer and more reliable

:03:23.:03:25.

The trains will be replaced by extra bus

:03:26.:03:33.

services, which will use the Mersey road tunnels.

:03:34.:03:35.

Rail travellers are being urged not to use their cars.

:03:36.:03:39.

We reckon that if the congestion levels are as we predict

:03:40.:03:44.

they will be through the two highway tunnels, it will put about 20

:03:45.:03:47.

minutes onto a journey on average that a rail passenger

:03:48.:03:49.

There is no doubt that the local economy will be

:03:50.:03:54.

Businesses have been encouraged for weeks now

:03:55.:04:01.

to think about how they can help their staff get to and from work

:04:02.:04:05.

The Green Party's candidate for next May's mayoral elections

:04:06.:04:13.

for Greater Manchester has died suddenly of a heart attack.

:04:14.:04:16.

Deyika Nzeribe from Hulme was in his 50s and had been

:04:17.:04:18.

His campaign manager Astrid Johnson said party members have lost a great

:04:19.:04:23.

Burnley have re-signed Joey Barton for the remainder

:04:24.:04:28.

of the season despite the threat of a Football Association ban.

:04:29.:04:30.

He left Scottish Premiership side Rangers in November.

:04:31.:04:35.

In the same month, he was given a one-match ban for breaking

:04:36.:04:39.

Scottish FA rules on gambling and has since been charged

:04:40.:04:41.

Today was dry, bright, and cold for most of us.

:04:42.:04:56.

You look up you can see the crescent moon and Venus looks spectacular.

:04:57.:05:00.

Temperatures are hovering around the zero mark

:05:01.:05:02.

Through the night there will be some subtle changes.

:05:03.:05:05.

This cloud cover will support some spots of rain.

:05:06.:05:09.

As it bumps into the cold air, ice could be a problem,

:05:10.:05:12.

particularly but not exclusively in the more southern

:05:13.:05:14.

Tomorrow, a much more cloudy chart in towns and

:05:15.:05:25.

Tomorrow, a much more cloudy picture. The ice could be a problem

:05:26.:05:31.

on untreated surfaces for a while tomorrow morning. The sun will try

:05:32.:05:36.

and get out but I don't think it will be too successful. Spots of

:05:37.:05:41.

drizzling rain could turn up. The breeze is quite keen. Temperatures

:05:42.:05:45.

around six or seven Celsius. We are back in the cool air again.

:05:46.:05:50.

Wednesday and Thursday will be fairly chilly. That is all from us

:05:51.:05:52.

tonight. Steve Saul will be here with

:05:53.:05:54.

the breakfast bulletins tomorrow. Good evening. It's been a dry and

:05:55.:06:10.

bright day across most parts of the country today. Despite the chilly

:06:11.:06:14.

feel to the weather, there has been some sunshine. Clear skies as the

:06:15.:06:23.

sun set in east Essex. With those clear skies around, temperatures are

:06:24.:06:26.

plummeting, particularly across southern parts. Here we see the

:06:27.:06:28.

coldest temperatures.
