Good evening and a special welcome to viewers in East Yorkshire and


Lincolnshire who are joining us because of technical problems with


Look North in Hull. Our main story tonight - South Yorkshire police


are appealing for witnesses to two separate attacks on New Year's Day


which left one man dead and another critically ill. A murder


investigation is underway a father of two was stabbed to death on the


dancefloor of a Sheffield club. And a 35-year-old man is critically ill


after being attacked outside a pub in Bawtry. Olivia Richwald has the


details. Joshua Green was a 27-year-old


father of the two. He was stabbed on the dance floor of this venue in


Sheffield and died at the scene a few arrows into the new year. A


second man and woman were also injured. It was a busy New Year's


event there were 400 guests at a party. The police are trying to


trace every single one. They are looking through CCTV footage while


investigations continue. Meanwhile, at 35-year-old man remained in


critical condition tonight. He sustained a severe head injury


after what was an unprovoked attack near a pub in Bawtry in the early


hours of the Year's Day. The man that attacks and fled the scene.


was described as of white man, 5 ft 8 inches tall, early 30s, a stocky


build with short, blond hair. I would ask that present to come


forward and I would ask that person to think about the actions of what


happened that night and to come forward and assist in the inquiries.


Tonight, the family released a statement describing him as an


ordinary, honest and hard-working family man that was attacked for no


reason. There's been criticism of the


decision to sharply increase rail fares across Yorkshire and


Lincolnshire. Operators say the money will pay for more trains and


better stations. Some fares in West Yorkshire are rising by more than


eight percent. It means a season ticket from Leeds to Wakefield will


increase from �840 to �908. Passengers in East Yorkshire will


see journeys on TransPennine cost 5% more and Hull Trains go up 4.5%.


Passenger groups say the rise is disappointing. They are pricing


people out of the trains and back onto the roads again and there is


enough congestion anyway. Government is trying to get people


and have their cars and onto public transport and I think they should


keep the prices down to encourage people.


It's been a busy afternoon of football lets start in the


championship with the South Yorkshire derby. Doncaster beat


Barnsley 2-0. James Hayter gave them the early lead, Kyle Bennett


with a late second goal. Leeds were up against ten men for much of the


game at home to Burnley but had to come from behind to win 2-1 - Ross


McCormack with a late, late winner. And a goal early in the second half


was enough for Derby to beat Hull. It was a bit of a goal fest up at


Carlisle, Sheffield United losing it three two - Ched Evans with the


two Blades goals. Chesterfield drew 1-1 with Oldham - Jordan Bowery


with their goal. Huddersfield Town went 2-0 up at Notts County through


Gary Roberts and Jordan Rhodes, but County pegged them back to draw 2-2.


Sheffield Wednesday go up to second after beating Tranmere 2-1 - Reda


Johnson and Chris Lines the scorers. And Scunthorpe won 2-1 at


Hartlepool. And in the Yorkshire derby in


league two it finished Rotherham 3 Bradford 0 - Lewis Grabban with two


goals, Brett Williams with the third.


And early warning, gale-force winds on the way later. A lot of rain as


well. In the short term, a few wintry showers. This is the chart


for tomorrow morning, and Atlantic depression coming through. At a few


wintry showers in the Dales and further east, a lot of dry weather


and it turns wet and windy from the south-west. Gales by the end of the


night and temperatures in the short term down to one or two degrees


Celsius. That's 36 degrees Fahrenheit. A dreadful commute in


the morning, a lot of surface spray and heavy rain and cold front which


would be pretty active. It clears the way to the South East during


the morning. The afternoon, brighter with sunshine and


scattered showers. The wind will be the main feature of the weather,


50-60 mph gusts. Temperatures, not bad in the morning, a mild night,


9-ten degrees. Wednesday, a bright start with rain later. That is your
