"A role model, an inspiration, our Princess."

:00:13.:00:14.

A family's moving tribute to a teenage girl from Lancashire

:00:15.:00:17.

who's died from an allergic reaction after eating a takeaway meal.

:00:18.:00:20.

Megan Lee, from Oswaldtwistle, was 15.

:00:21.:00:24.

Megan Lee was known to have had a nut allergy.

:00:25.:00:31.

She lived in Oswaldtwistle with her parents Adam and Gemma

:00:32.:00:34.

Megan's school in Accrington have set up a tribute to her.

:00:35.:01:00.

Her family came to a scheduled communion service here yesterday

:01:01.:01:04.

The head teacher says her family are coping with an unbearable

:01:05.:01:10.

Megan was a super student, a wonderful pupil

:01:11.:01:17.

It feels as if a member of our family has left us.

:01:18.:01:26.

She was bright, articulate, somebody of real potential who'd

:01:27.:01:30.

thrived and grown during her five years with us.

:01:31.:01:33.

Lancashire Police say Megan suffered a severe allergic reaction.

:01:34.:01:35.

She'd eaten food from a takeaway described

:01:36.:01:41.

Police and Lancashire trading standards officers

:01:42.:01:45.

The full results of a postmortem won't be known for some time.

Andy Gill, BBC North West Tonight, Oswaldtwistle.

The long running row over the future of Liverpool Women Hospital

:01:58.:02:00.

A short list of four options has been drawn up for public

:02:01.:02:04.

consultation.Bosses say they'd like it to move to the site

:02:05.:02:06.

But, protestors say it needs to remain where it is.

:02:07.:02:12.

In virtually every other hospital in the UK, if you run into a problem

:02:13.:02:16.

with one of your maternity patients, or somebody having gynaecological

:02:17.:02:22.

treatment, you can simply pick up the phone and another specialist

:02:23.:02:25.

will walk down the corridor and provide you with assistance.

:02:26.:02:29.

That's much more difficult to achieve with stand-alone hospital.

:02:30.:02:33.

We want to protect the safe delivery of babies in this city,

:02:34.:02:38.

and we want to protect the dignity of women as they go

:02:39.:02:41.

Those two things are the absolute priority,

:02:42.:02:47.

and of course we want safety, but one functioning women's Hospital

:02:48.:02:51.

The idea we can't afford that is ridiculous.

:02:52.:02:58.

An investigation's underway into the cause of a large fire

:02:59.:03:00.

this morning at Pilling in Wyre in Lancashire.

:03:01.:03:10.

At its height 40 firefighters were at the scene at a warehouse

:03:11.:03:13.

on an industrial estate on Taylors Lane.

:03:14.:03:15.

Nearby residents were moved as a precaution.

:03:16.:03:16.

Detectives investigating a fatal shooting in Liverpool last year have

:03:17.:03:19.

Mark Hillman was found with gunshot wounds on Lloyd Close

:03:20.:03:22.

22-year-old John Paul Johns from Broad Lane in Kirkby has been

:03:23.:03:28.

remanded in custody and will appear before South Sefton

:03:29.:03:30.

Liverpool Crown Court's been shown dashcam footage of car crashing

:03:31.:03:37.

17-year-old Sean Grindle was travelling 45 miles per hour

:03:38.:03:41.

over the speed limit in Bootle last year as he tried to escape police.

:03:42.:03:46.

The court heard he only had a provisional licence.

:03:47.:03:50.

He was given ten months in a young offenders institution,

:03:51.:03:53.

suspended for two years and banned from driving for two years.

:03:54.:03:57.

For hundreds of people in Cheshire - the prospect that their house

:03:58.:03:59.

will be bulldozed to make way for high speed trains

:04:00.:04:02.

is something they've known about for the last three years.But -

:04:03.:04:05.

last November - the HS2 route was changed.

:04:06.:04:07.

And some households in the county found out that they were in the way.

:04:08.:04:11.

Officials have been in Cheshire today to answer questions.

:04:12.:04:14.

Here's our Cheshire Political Reporter Phil McCann.

:04:15.:04:18.

The bread's been rolling off the tracks at Roberts Bakery

:04:19.:04:20.

It's not exactly high speed, but the factory's

:04:21.:04:25.

The HS2 line will cross this main road next to the Northwich site

:04:26.:04:31.

and go through the car park of this distribution centre.

:04:32.:04:35.

The proposed line through that part of Northwich and this counyryside

:04:36.:04:38.

just south of it was shifted to here last November

:04:39.:04:41.

It means people living here who thought they wouldn't be

:04:42.:04:45.

affected have had just a few months to digest the fact that their corner

:04:46.:04:49.

People like Gary - he and his neighbours

:04:50.:04:54.

in Billings Green found out late last year they'd be

:04:55.:04:57.

I hoped I would stay here for a long time,

:04:58.:05:05.

and it's not looking like I'll be able to.

:05:06.:05:07.

It's going to be a lot of uncertainty for a number

:05:08.:05:10.

But today was a chance for Gary to get out and find out more.

:05:11.:05:15.

He was invited to this official consultation event, where questions

:05:16.:05:18.

It just confirmed some of the things I already knew, really.

:05:19.:05:24.

There's still a lot of unanswered questions, and part of the problem

:05:25.:05:27.

is there's so much uncertainty and it's going to go on for years.

:05:28.:05:31.

But with so many people newly affected, there

:05:32.:05:33.

I sympathise with people who are affected by the proposals.

:05:34.:05:39.

What we've tried to do is balance the considerations.

:05:40.:05:44.

Obviously we need to have a safe railway, balanced against

:05:45.:05:48.

We believe that what we've now got represents the best balance.

:05:49.:05:55.

Head just south of here to Crewe, though, and there's excitement,

:05:56.:05:58.

because the railway town will be the only HS2 stop between

:05:59.:06:01.

From where the trains will thunder past the bakery at up to 250 mph.

:06:02.:06:16.

Football, and Manchester City are safely through to

:06:17.:06:19.

Tonight they thrashed West Ham 5-0 at the London Stadium,

:06:20.:06:24.

Johnm Stones scoring City's fifth and his first goa for the club.

:06:25.:06:29.

That's it from me, here's the weather.

:06:30.:06:39.

than yesterday. It was bitterly cold yesterday, mild today with a lot of

:06:40.:06:46.

rain of them. We are going to keep mild conditions into the weekend, a

:06:47.:06:51.

lot of cloud and hill fog tonight. It's cloudy, we have hill fog,

:06:52.:06:56.

patchy light rain initially, fading away to leave a dry night.

:06:57.:07:01.

Temperatures not too bad, down to seven or 8 degrees overnight.

:07:02.:07:05.

Tomorrow morning starts cloudy, with hill fog. It should be mostly dry

:07:06.:07:10.

tomorrow, occasional brightness, very limited brightness sneaking

:07:11.:07:14.

through the cloud cover. We will see very light winds around,

:07:15.:07:18.

temperatures as high as eight or 9 degrees, hill fog forming again

:07:19.:07:22.

quite early tomorrow night. Another dry, mild night. Into Sunday, it

:07:23.:07:28.

remains cloudy and mild, but the outlook heading into Monday, I'm

:07:29.:07:29.

afraid there's some rain on Good evening. The weather has been

:07:30.:07:40.

turning milder and also cloudier through the course of the day. We

:07:41.:07:44.

did see some clear spells moving in from the North will stop this was

:07:45.:07:49.

the sunset, captured in Dundee. Some clear spells as we headed through

:07:50.:07:53.

the course of the afternoon into the evening. Really, through the

:07:54.:07:56.

weekend, wiki with a similar theme. Much milder than it has been. A lot

:07:57.:08:01.

of cloud around in general, but for most of us think. Dry. Not dry

:08:02.:08:04.

everywhere at the moment, particularly across central and

:08:05.:08:07.

southern parts of England and Wales. We have a lot of cloud, bringing

:08:08.:08:12.

outbreaks of light rain and drizzle. The patchy rain will
