teenager who lost her life `t a notorious accident blackspot in

:00:17.:00:20.

Peterborough. Hannah Yates, who was 19, lost control of her car on

:00:21.:00:23.

Northbank, near Whittlesey, and it plunged into the water. Hannah's

:00:24.:00:28.

death was one in a series of accidents last winter. Desphte

:00:29.:00:31.

safety barriers being put up, today campaigners said the measurds still

:00:32.:00:40.

didn't go far enough. A beautiful girl who we miss so

:00:41.:00:45.

much. Our hearts are broken. The words of Hannah Yates's famhly after

:00:46.:00:52.

the inquest today into her death. She died after her car went into the

:00:53.:01:04.

river one night last winter. Hannah Yates was happy in herself `nd was

:01:05.:01:10.

on her way to see her voice friend. After she crashed, a witness heard

:01:11.:01:16.

her shouting. She said that she was trapped and it sounded as if she was

:01:17.:01:21.

banging on the glass. It was one of a series of accidents starthng with

:01:22.:01:23.

her death. Today the coroner said that

:01:24.:01:51.

Hannah's death was accident`l. After her death, her family joined

:01:52.:01:55.

campaigners, calling the better safety measures. Temporarilx speed

:01:56.:02:01.

limits were brought in and safety barriers put up on the end where

:02:02.:02:06.

Hannah Yates died. It is a shame that it took Hannah's death to make

:02:07.:02:16.

the council finally realised the need for a safety barrier on this

:02:17.:02:22.

road. Her family said today they were disappointed the corondr did

:02:23.:02:27.

not ask for more safety measures, but they had to accept what had

:02:28.:02:30.

happened and move on with their lives.

:02:31.:02:36.

In less than 24 hours a votd in Brussels could mean online hmages of

:02:37.:02:39.

child sexual abuse become more difficult to block. The

:02:40.:02:41.

Cambridgeshire based charitx The Internet Watch Foundation is

:02:42.:02:43.

concerned that a decision tomorrow by the European Parliament will lead

:02:44.:02:46.

to images remaining accessible on the internet for longer. Ben Bland

:02:47.:02:55.

has the details. Last year the foundation received reports of more

:02:56.:02:59.

than 13,000 websites that wdre hosting images of children being

:03:00.:03:03.

sexually abused. At the momdnt they share the web address with the

:03:04.:03:07.

service provider Hugh Block it almost immediately. The new law

:03:08.:03:11.

could make it illegal for the Internet providers to do th`t in the

:03:12.:03:15.

future. Instead they might have to get a court order and that hs

:03:16.:03:21.

opposed by one of the members of the European Parliament. This is

:03:22.:03:26.

irresponsible and dangerous and that amendment must not be allowdd to go

:03:27.:03:32.

through. And this matters bdcause removing and deleting the ilages and

:03:33.:03:39.

take up to a couple of weeks, so the ability to temporarily block access

:03:40.:03:42.

to the web address almost immediately is very important.

:03:43.:03:50.

So why are they doing this? To make it easier for legitimate businesses

:03:51.:03:53.

to trade across Europe without worrying that their websites are

:03:54.:03:58.

slow down of locked. Someone in Cambridge be abld to live

:03:59.:04:04.

from someone trading in Belgium as easily as buying from a company

:04:05.:04:12.

based in this country. Our region's Conservative and Labour MPs want

:04:13.:04:16.

assurances that Internet providers will be able to log websites hosting

:04:17.:04:31.

illegal images. `` block websites. Next, more on the record levels of

:04:32.:04:35.

air pollution affecting our region. Government experts say todax in

:04:36.:04:38.

parts of East Anglia and thd East Midlands levels have peaked. It s

:04:39.:04:41.

partly caused by dust from the Sahara. Joining me now is Dr Alison

:04:42.:04:44.

Greig from Anglia Ruskin Unhversity. Why has this region been so badly

:04:45.:04:47.

affected? This part of the country is being effected because it is in

:04:48.:04:52.

the path of the airstream which has come up from the Sahara, crossed

:04:53.:04:56.

over Europe and ended up in this part of the world. So do yot think

:04:57.:05:02.

these high levels we have bden experiencing today are a ond off or

:05:03.:05:07.

will we see these conditions again? Generally, we get this sort of

:05:08.:05:15.

airstream about five or six times every year. This is the first time

:05:16.:05:20.

this year we have seen it. Ht does happen occasionally. We havd seen

:05:21.:05:25.

extreme rainfall over the l`st few months. Part of that has bedn put

:05:26.:05:30.

down to climate change. Do xou think these high levels of elution are

:05:31.:05:36.

down to the same thing? It hs very difficult to in any particular event

:05:37.:05:42.

on climate change, but the dxperts have said, and they are quite

:05:43.:05:47.

possibility that we are seehng possibility that we are seehng

:05:48.:05:51.

changes in our weather pattdrns due to climate change and so whhlst we

:05:52.:05:57.

cannot pin this particular dpisode on climate change, it is possible

:05:58.:06:01.

that in the future we are lhkely to see different weather patterns, this

:06:02.:06:05.

sort of thing happening mord, or even less because of climatd change.

:06:06.:06:16.

Thank you very much for joining us. Football, and just one result to

:06:17.:06:20.

tell you about from tonight. In League One Peterborough plaxed at

:06:21.:06:23.

home to Colchester. Posh won the match ` final score 2`0. Th`t is all

:06:24.:06:31.

from the late team, but don't forget from the late team, but don't forget

:06:32.:06:36.

our breakfast bulletins beghn from 6:25am. Time now for the we`ther.

:06:37.:06:45.

It is quite cloudy across the region at the moment and there has been

:06:46.:06:51.

rain and drizzle, but the rdst of the night look mainly dry. There

:06:52.:06:57.

could be some fog patches developing, but it won't be a cold

:06:58.:07:01.

night. We start with some mhst and fog, but that will lift and there

:07:02.:07:07.

will be hazy sunshine. It whll feel warmer with temperatures around 18

:07:08.:07:12.

degrees Celsius. For the afternoon, cloud might produce rain across

:07:13.:07:21.

western counties. On Friday we will get a fresh air mass. In a loment,

:07:22.:07:28.

the National forecast, but here is the outlook.

:07:29.:07:31.

be dry. The air pollution has been hitting the headlines today. For

:07:32.:07:36.

more information on that, here is my colleague.

:07:37.:07:43.

Good evening. Very hazy skies in London today and many other towns

:07:44.:07:48.

and cities across the UK. On Thursday there is the chance of some

:07:49.:07:52.

pretty high pollution in the south-east and East Anglia but by

:07:53.:07:56.

the time we get towards the end of the week, we will see clearer

:07:57.:08:02.

Atlantique air coming in and we should get rid of the Saharan dust

:08:03.:08:06.

which has been making services grubby in the last few days. You can

:08:07.:08:15.

see the pattern across the Atlantic. We also have a weather
