The family of a teenage girl who died in a car crash
in Howden on Tuesday have described her as funny and caring.
16-year-old Levi Dickinson from Selby was killed alongside
The 19-year-old driver was arrested and released on police bail.
Kate Sweeting is outside Howden police station tonight.
You'd spoken to Levi's Dickinson's family, what have they had to say?
A family going through a terrible time.
They wanted to speak out as a warning to any young people who
might be thinking about getting in a car at this weekend to take extra
care. By Tuesday night, Levi's father lived every parent's worst
fear when his daughter didn't come home from work. Someone else was
bringing our home, he got in his own car and went to look for her, and
came across the crash. He says he doesn't want any other father to go
through that. 17-year-old Rhogan Jones from Goole
and 16-year-old Levi Dickenson from Selby were passengers in a car
when it hit a tree. The world came crashing down then,
because I knew, I knew. Because she never, never,
doesn't answer her phone. Today, Levi's family told me
she was a special girl. I think she could come
in on the darkest of days She never saw bad in
anybody, no matter... It didn't matter who they was,
whether they'd said anything bad to her, she would never say anything
bad about them. Tonight, they had a stark warning
for young drivers and passengers. If they're a new driver,
don't risk it. Stay safe, where is he built, make
sure you know the driver and stay safe.
Both teenagers have been described as popular,
and mourners have left floral tributes at the crash scene.
But today, Humberside Police warned that that is dangerous.
It's not the safest bit of roads, especially if it's dark.
Really, it's advisable not to do that, or if you're going to it,
try and arrange something with the police, if possible,
People are descending, I wouldn't say en masse,
but there were quite a few people there, it did cause safety concerns.
Tonight, Levi's church in Selby will hold a remembrance service for her.
But her family say they hope their warning will encourage other
teenagers to think before they get in a car.
The service and sell better light is a chance Levi's friends and family
to come together to grieve and remember her. Both community in
Goole and Selby are both teenagers are said to be deeply shocked about
what has happened. The police still want information on the crash. The
19-year-old driver was arrested on suspicion of causing death by
digestion arriving, he has now been released on bail.
Our thoughts are with the families tonight.
The engineering company Siemens is one of the first in the country
to offer training to young people with special educational needs
and disabilities, with the prospect of full employment.
Seven teenagers will take up work placements at the wind turbine
Nationally, fewer than one in ten people with learning disabilities
managed to find work. Siemens has become one of the first companies in
the country to offer specific work placements for people with special
educational needs. This blade will be going
to the North Sea somewhere. Getting their first tour of the site
and the world of work. This group of young people
with severe learning difficulies are at the beginning
of their journey towards employment. We're seeing them coming
out of their shells. One of our young people,
Leah, the first time I met her she would not even make
eye contact with me. Today, she actually
called me by my name. She was laughing and that is
a huge step forward. Hello, Siemens reception,
Salim speaking. The new intake get the opportunity
to try different roles within the company to see
what suits them best. I tried security for
the last few weeks. You get to see the first people
before they get in and make And they are supported by mentors
from the University of Hull. He's so good, it is
really surprising. He has already made an impression
on a lot of people. His personality
reflects on everybody. As soon as he walks in the room,
that's it, everybody is smiling. Those leading the project say
with the right support They've got a wide range
of different needs, ranging It's almost impossible
for young people with special When I talk to employers,
one of the things they most want is reliable employees
who want to work and enjoy coming Only one other company in the UK
offers this type of training. Ann has been trying out some office
duties, but eventually wants I've been sorting out
letters, writing the names. It helps you to find a job,
to get some good reference. Siemens are now hoping that other
businesses will come and see What makes this different from other
companies who may offer work experience to people with learning
disabilities? Of course, other companies to employ
people with learning difficulties, but not on this scale. This is a
long-term, structured programme, supported by volunteers from the
University of Hull, they mentor them to add their training, they're
studying for future career in social care. Siemens also have workplace
champions in place who are specially trained to help youngsters on their
journey, and they will be offered full-time employment at the end of
the projects, either with Siemens or one of their suppliers. Of course,
it's hoped they will get the skills apply for jobs elsewhere in that's
what they want to do. The employment rate for people with learning
difficulties at the moment is very low, only around 7%or people with
learning difficulties have a job. Set a job like this is really
needed. The only other country doing something like this on this scale is
the National Grid in Leicestershire. Siemens did go and look to what they
were doing there, they hope now that companies, especially in Hull, will
come to Siemens, look at what they're doing, and take a on boards
they can increase the impact of this project.
Let's hope so, make it very much indeed, and we wish everyone the
very best of luck. Trading Standards officers in Hull
are warning businesses to carry out proper safety checks
on all their products. It's after a charger bought
at a branch of Home Bargains The retailer's been fined in court
after it continued to sell the chargers for months
before recalling them. It looks handy - a charger that can
take two cables at once. This own-brand product
was sold by Home Bargains, until one ended up like this
the first time it was used. It overheated and it couldn't
retain its shape, basically. It was bought at this store in Hull,
and the shopper took it straight to Trading Standards,
who say it's lucky no-one was hurt. Most homes are protected
by circuit breakers. However, those that aren't
may have overheated, Trading Standards told
Home Bargains that a charger bought here had exploded
in the same month it was bought There were about 38,000 of them
on the shelves of Home Bargains stores across the country,
but the company didn't stop selling them until January 2016,
after further tests by Hull Trading Standards confirmed
the chargers were unsafe. They had a safety certificate
from China, but tests showed the chargers didn't meet
UK safety standards. They were recalled,
and earlier this month, Home Bargains admitted three
electrical safety offences at In the last few years,
there has been a lot of similar cases of these sort
of charger products failing. Which means that companies should
take greater precautions and carry out a greater number of checks
to prevent these sort of things TJ Morris, trading as Home Bargains
turned down our interview request, Anyone who still has one of these
chargers is advised to send it Does that story but you off buying
cheap political goods? Here's how to get an search, do you use one from
one of the tube shops, we stop using we've heard our story tonight? Maybe
this has happened to you before? Who've some of your thoughts at 7pm.
Here's how to get in touch. We look forward to hearing from you on that
subject. Two teenagers convicted of murdering
a Lincolnshire mother and her daughter will not
have their sentences increased. Elizabeth Edwards and her daughter
Katie were found dead at their home on Dawson Avenue
in Spalding in April. The boy and girl - who were 14
at the time of the killings - were given 20-year custodial
sentences. The Attorney General has today said
those sentences were not unduly lenient and he will not be referring
the case to the Court of Appeal. Education experts, politicians
and Government representatives have met in Hull today to discuss why
children growing up in the city face bigger challenges
than those in the South. It's the first in a series
of meetings which will look at why there are fewer opportunities
for young people in the North. They've also taking been advice
from school children. We did find quite a disparity
between boys and girls, actually. Boys were much more positive,
they thought that things were getting better
and the future was bright. A lot of the girls were talking
about things stagnating and looking to other areas,
especially Leeds and London Ministers say not enough homes
are being built across The Government says it wants
to fix what it calls The East Riding of Yorkshire is one
of the few areas that is on track to meet house-building targets,
but councillors say there's a limit to how many new homes can
be built in the area. Over the past three years,
we've approved some 8000 But roughly, current rate
of development is about 1000 a year. So it's not the planning
system that's holding up development in this patch,
it's other factors. Most of those are completely outside
the control of the council. You can see more on that
story with Tim Iredale Police want to speak to two men
who may have been the intended targets of a petrol bomb
attack in Scunthorpe. The incident happened
on Frodingham Road in the town A woman is being treated
for burns in hospital. Simon Spark is at the
scene for us tonight. The alarm was raised here at about
10:25pm on Wednesday night in what police are describing as a targeted
attack. Excel in order petrol has been found on the premises, and from
further investigations, police believe a petrol bomb may have been
thrown from the rear of the building. Police have also told me
that despite the Fire Service being here very quickly, it was actually
members of the public walking by that managed to save a woman who was
still inside the building during the fire. They smashed a window and
dragged her to safety. She is now recovering at Hull Royal Infirmary
with non-life threatening injuries. Earlier, I spoke to a detective
inspector from Humberside Police. There's no apparent risk
to the wider community, We're looking for two males
who exited the front of the premises It was those males who were targeted
in this attack, and we're very concerned for their safety
and would like to get in touch with them as soon as possible
so they can reassure us As briefly described there, there's
not thought to be any further danger to the public here, but there has
been a stronger police presence in the area to reassure people. They're
asking people for assistance, if they have caught anything on their
own personal CCTV, the police would like to hear from them. They're
treating this very seriously, because this outcome could have been
so much worse. Thank you very much indeed.

This photograph is of a river near Boston. Thank you for that.
Lets get the forecast now with Keely.
I know you like to comment on what I wear, so I would like your advice on
these. What do you think these would look like on?
Oh, my word! I think the graphics people have
made a mistake on this, because your face is on these leggings. The joke
has fallen flat on its face! People out there, there are leggings out
there with Peter's face on. They've got the wrong side.
I'll posted online. Will get you in them for Children In
Need. I'll hold you to that! The weather
looks cold and wintry. The potential of snow tonight and overnight. This
weekend is cold, and a lot of cloud around. It grabbed weekend, wintry
showers by day, some of them heavy by night. A couple of centimetres
across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. Tonight and also Saturday night into
Sunday too. The cold weather continuing into next week, Burke
Breitling for Monday. Still very chilly out there. And there we have
a lot of clouds, some showers around. They will bring a measure of
rain, sleet and snow. Snow likely across higher ground. It won't be a
blanket right across the reason, because they are showers.
Temperatures down to around freezing. Some slippery surfaces
into tomorrow morning. The sun will arrive tomorrow morning at 7:30am,
setting at 5:03pm. Slippery surfaces, a couple centimetres of
snow across higher regions, but turning back to mainly rain and
sleet. A cold day to come, temperatures a little higher, but
still feeling cool. Am a story for Saturday as well.
If anyone was confused, they're leggings were my picture on the
front, that's basically it. You can't get the staff!
They got the wrong side! Have a nice weekend. One job.
Hull FC kick-off this season's Super League
hoping to improve on last season's third-placed finish.
The Challenge Cup holders have made slight changes

game last week, and when Hull start their home campaign

But that's not being replicated everywhere in the country.
And that's why the new head of Super League wants
One of the things we're looking at the moment is the calendar,
is it optimised to get more growth for fans as well?
Whether that's Thursday nights, whether that's the Challenge Cup,
whether that's the League Leader's Shield, is the Super 8s working?
So we're having a debate to look at how we grow that,
what changes we need to make for the 2018 season.

the target looks simple - improve on last season's
Here they are, beating Sunday's opponents Wakefield last year.

Stick to it when it gets a bit tricky, as well.
People will want come and knock us off that perch.
So it's about having that level of consistency and making sure

When the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall visited Hull
on Wednesday, they saw paintings and sculptures by some
But the piece that really caught the eye of the Duchess was a small
painting by a Yorkshire artist who only started selling her
Our culture correspondent Anne-Marie Tasker reports.
It sits among hundreds of other works of art. This tiny painting,
cold heart avocado, is getting plenty of attention. When the Duke
and Duchess of Cornwall visited the gallery on Wednesday, they both
looked at the opening position, competition for amateur artists.
While Charles was filmed, Camilla were shopping. There are many works
of art in the show, but this is the one that caught the Dutch as coral's
alive. It may be small, but has loads of interest from members of
the public. A royal Highness snapped it up. This is the artist who
painted it, Helen Brayshaw. She only started selling her work a few years
ago. There was particular reason why she was so surprised by the sale.
I still can't take it in. Accurately surprised and thrilled. It was the
only painting I had left, about a couple on my wall at home, because
they sold everything. I was down to one, and I entered it. Luckily, it
got accepted for the exhibition. I didn't think anyone would even buy
it, let alone the Duchess of Cornwall.
The painting wasn't the Duchess' first choice though. Other items she
had her eye on warrant for sale. July 20 a few of the works, but in
the end she had a definite favourite that you wanted to take home with
her. It was just an initial response, love at first sight.
Colleagues have wanted it and had people calling up about it, so she
really does have taste. The gallery wouldn't say it the
Duchess paid the ?350 for the painting in cash, and we can only
guess what she will put it on show. This tiny cameras has definitely got
the royal seal of approval. Beautifully painted.

Another cold and mainly cloudy day with rain,
sleet and snow showers during the morning.
We were talking about cheap phone chargers, has it put you off buying
them? Big phone companies continue to sell high-priced items. My dad
loses you get would you for. My concern is how diverse chargers get
into the UK in the first place if they do not have a safety
certificate? Polley says she would rather pay a few more pounds of a
safe device than risk her house. Thank you for those. Thank you for
all your messages, we're very grateful, more next week, have a
good weekend. Bye-bye.
