Welcome to the late Look North, the headlines tonight:

:00:00.:00:09.

The teenager killed by a dangerous driver...

:00:10.:00:10.

Tonight there are calls for tougher jail sentences.

:00:11.:00:15.

And the Government promises ?160 million to boost jobs,

:00:16.:00:18.

build homes and support businesses in Yorkshire and the Humber.

:00:19.:00:26.

Let's be absolutely clear, the money we are getting for Yorkshire and the

:00:27.:00:32.

Humber is significantly more than in London will get out of this pot of

:00:33.:00:37.

cash. A warning in place for a fog getting dents in places. Join me for

:00:38.:00:43.

the updated forecast. -- quite dense in places.

:00:44.:00:49.

There are calls for tougher sentences for motorists convicted

:00:50.:00:53.

of dangerous driving after a the death of a teenager

:00:54.:00:55.

Jessica Danby was as riding her moped, when she was hit by a car

:00:56.:01:00.

The driver, who was trying to overtake a lorry in thick fog

:01:01.:01:06.

at the time, pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and sentenced

:01:07.:01:08.

But Jessica's mother says that's not enough.

:01:09.:01:12.

Our correspondent, Vicky Johnson has more.

:01:13.:01:17.

She was a very bubbly, very bubbly character.

:01:18.:01:19.

Jess Danby's mum and step-dad try to remember the good

:01:20.:01:28.

There's a big hole missing, and it's never going to get replaced.

:01:29.:01:39.

Remember when I was in reception we had show and tell?

:01:40.:01:42.

Jess was an aspiring actress and had just completed her first show reel.

:01:43.:01:46.

It might have taken her a little while, but she'd have done it.

:01:47.:01:53.

I know for a fact she would have done it.

:01:54.:01:55.

If she wanted to do anything in life, she did it.

:01:56.:01:58.

It was a foggy morning much like today when Jess

:01:59.:02:00.

was making her way to her job in Boston along the A52.

:02:01.:02:03.

She was wearing a high vis jacket and had her moped lights were on.

:02:04.:02:10.

But then Philip Paddington Wheatcroft crashed head

:02:11.:02:14.

on into her in dense fog, after overtaking

:02:15.:02:16.

He'd admitted causing death by dangerous driving

:02:17.:02:20.

At the end of the day he's killed somebody,

:02:21.:02:25.

it's as bad as manslaughter in my eyes.

:02:26.:02:28.

He's gone out and he made that decision to overtake,

:02:29.:02:32.

when he knew he couldn't see, and it's dangerous, and he should be

:02:33.:02:36.

At present in the UK, death by dangerous driving has

:02:37.:02:39.

The Government is currently looking to increase this to life.

:02:40.:02:45.

In 2015, the average length of sentence given

:02:46.:02:49.

A judge has had to take into account the background of the driver,

:02:50.:02:56.

has he got a previous record, what he does for a living,

:02:57.:03:00.

And then he has to look at the victim statement,

:03:01.:03:09.

what are the consequences of the death on the

:03:10.:03:11.

And he has to put all of that into a balance.

:03:12.:03:19.

The family say everyone must take more responsibility

:03:20.:03:21.

I know people go to jail regularly and they still commit the same

:03:22.:03:25.

offences, and it's just a lack of concentration, for a single

:03:26.:03:28.

It's 15 months since Jess was killed.

:03:29.:03:37.

Her family say a two year jail sentence is simply not enough

:03:38.:03:40.

Vicky Johnson, BBC Look North, Donnington.

:03:41.:03:49.

?160 million of funding is going to be given

:03:50.:03:53.

to the Yorkshire and Humber region to create jobs, build homes

:03:54.:03:56.

The Government says the money, which was announced today,

:03:57.:04:02.

will go some way towards easing the gap between the north

:04:03.:04:05.

and south and help boost the economy in the north.

:04:06.:04:07.

The Humber region is getting nearly ?28 million in total.

:04:08.:04:24.

In Hull - ?3.5 million is being spent

:04:25.:04:26.

in total on flood defences and redeveloping the city centre.

:04:27.:04:29.

Improving the defences means that there'll be more sites where more

:04:30.:04:31.

houses can be built and private companies will want to build things

:04:32.:04:34.

Andrew Percy has said there are also plans to 'unlock' Grimsby town

:04:35.:04:38.

centre - to encourage more economic growth in that area.

:04:39.:04:40.

Let's be absolutely clear, the money we are getting for Yorkshire and

:04:41.:04:46.

Humber is less than London will get out of the pot. We are doing well

:04:47.:04:49.

but there's always more to be done to close that North - South divide.

:04:50.:04:53.

Meanwhle, the East Riding of Yorkshire is sharing ?24

:04:54.:04:55.

million with York and North Yorkshire.

:04:56.:04:56.

In Goole, ?2.4 million is going to be spent

:04:57.:04:59.

creating a new terminal, where the railway, sea, road

:05:00.:05:01.

and waterway networks can all meet, with the idea of making the town

:05:02.:05:04.

While ?3.5 million has been set aside for developing

:05:05.:05:07.

But what about other places on the south bank

:05:08.:05:11.

Well, Andrew Percy says there'll be an announcement about that

:05:12.:05:16.

Lord Haskins is the Chair of the Humber Local Enterprise

:05:17.:05:22.

partnership which will be responsible for the money.

:05:23.:05:26.

I asked him if this was a win win situation for our area.

:05:27.:05:32.

I think we've done really well compared with the rest

:05:33.:05:42.

of the country, the Humber, that's a good thing.

:05:43.:05:44.

We got much more than we expected to get.

:05:45.:05:46.

And yet a lot of people say Manchester and the Northwest,

:05:47.:05:49.

there's this East- West divide?

:05:50.:05:50.

I don't think it's a completely West-East divide, I think you might

:05:51.:05:53.

say that leads didn't do as well as Manchester,

:05:54.:05:55.

but I think the Humber did every bit as well.

:05:56.:05:57.

You said today 15 years from now Hull will be a thriving city.

:05:58.:06:00.

I've lived here for 50 years, and I think there's been more

:06:01.:06:07.

progress in the last five or six years than in the previous 40.

:06:08.:06:11.

I think that Hull's building, the economy is building,

:06:12.:06:14.

there's good investment coming in, a lot of self-confidence

:06:15.:06:20.

in the town, the City of Culture is helping.

:06:21.:06:25.

Goole is doing well, the East Riding always does well.

:06:26.:06:27.

Yes, you think Goole need a renaissance?

:06:28.:06:31.

Goole, what we'd like there is more better paid jobs.

:06:32.:06:38.

A lot of jobs there, but not enough of the well-paid jobs.

:06:39.:06:41.

Indeed, that is true in Hull as well.

:06:42.:06:45.

Yes, you say that Hull will be the most attractive city

:06:46.:06:48.

If you're watching tonight and you've not got a job,

:06:49.:06:53.

It isn't, but unemployment is low in Hull, unemployment is as low

:06:54.:06:57.

as it's been for years at the moment.

:06:58.:07:02.

The quality of the jobs may not be what we want.

:07:03.:07:06.

There are a lot of part-time workers, we would like to see more

:07:07.:07:09.

Our job is to improve the quality of the jobs come and to do that,

:07:10.:07:14.

we have to improve the quality of the skills of the people here.

:07:15.:07:17.

Just finally, what can we do in Grimsby to sort things out there?

:07:18.:07:20.

Just keep doing what we've been trying to do.

:07:21.:07:30.

There are signs, in Grimsby, The government are going to invest

:07:31.:07:33.

in the next few years, and I hope that we could

:07:34.:07:36.

Offshore wind is helping Grimsby as well.

:07:37.:07:39.

It always seems good news, Lord Haskins, thank

:07:40.:07:41.

Lord Haskins the Chair of the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership

:07:42.:07:44.

Lincolnshire County Council say they could save ?150 million

:07:45.:07:47.

over five years, if they were to become

:07:48.:07:49.

They intend to put the option to a public referendum

:07:50.:07:53.

The County Council leader says it would be more

:07:54.:07:59.

We have confusions over the roads, the County Council

:08:00.:08:06.

maintains the roads, the District Council sweeps it.

:08:07.:08:08.

So there's all this confusion, and frankly the public

:08:09.:08:10.

We work as best we can together, County and District

:08:11.:08:13.

You say what would we save, you would save, you wouldn't

:08:14.:08:21.

need a chief executive, you wouldn't need eight management

:08:22.:08:23.

teams, you wouldn't need eight of all sorts of things.

:08:24.:08:29.

A leading surgeon says Hull City's medical team probably saved the life

:08:30.:08:33.

of midfielder Ryan Mason. The player fractured his skull

:08:34.:08:37.

during yesterday's game at Chelsea Although he is now conscious

:08:38.:08:40.

and speaking it's thought a full recovery from the injury

:08:41.:08:44.

could take many weeks. I think what we are seeing

:08:45.:08:46.

is the result of changes in the process of recognising when

:08:47.:08:51.

an injury or potential If it had been ignored,

:08:52.:08:53.

if he'd been allowed to sort of stagger up and carry on,

:08:54.:09:01.

possibly a worse outcome One of the biggest free music

at Burton Constable near Hull for the Radio One

Big Weekend in May. It's coming to the area as part

:09:15.:09:22.

of City of Culture celebrations. Acts such as Kings of Leon

:09:23.:09:25.

and little Mix have I think it's going to be really,

:09:26.:09:33.

really influential, because obviously a lot of big artists are

:09:34.:09:39.

coming and people who see them in the media would like to be a part of

:09:40.:09:43.

that. It will bring a lot of trade to the village. The city of culture

:09:44.:09:49.

is brilliant, it's brought business in, people have come to see what

:09:50.:09:50.

Yorkshire is all about. Predominantly dry as high pressure

:09:51.:10:08.

dominates. A warning in place the mist and fog, some could be quite

:10:09.:10:15.

dense. High-pressure hanging on but we will drag some cold air in from

:10:16.:10:18.

the near continent on Thursday. Temperatures might not be higher

:10:19.:10:23.

than two Celsius. A mixed bag tonight. When the cloud breaks there

:10:24.:10:28.

will be mist and fog. Watch out for ice and frost. Temperatures down to

:10:29.:10:32.

minus two degrees. As for tomorrow, a grey star in many places. That fog

:10:33.:10:36.

slowly lifting and breaking. It could take quite a while, though.

:10:37.:10:41.

Elsewhere it is bright with some sunny spells developing. Top

:10:42.:10:46.

temperatures for - five Celsius. Widespread fog again on Tuesday

:10:47.:10:48.

night and Wednesday morning. That is the forecast.

:10:49.:10:51.

For the weekend we will have dry weather with sunny spells and it

:10:52.:11:05.

will be a little bit weather with sunny spells and it

:11:06.:11:05.

will be a little bit milder. Good evening. We are continuing to

:11:06.:11:16.

see huge righty in the weather. Getting the detail right is proving

:11:17.:11:24.

to be a challenge. This was in Pembrokeshire and other parts of the

:11:25.:11:28.

UK were gloomy throughout the day. The fog is thickening up right now.

:11:29.:11:34.

Particularly pool on the M5 in south-west England. Very foggy

:11:35.:11:42.

across parts of the West Country. This fog is tending to spread its

:11:43.:11:45.

way further
