Good evening. for the news where you are.

:00:00.:00:15.

Northumbria Police say they haven't ruled out further arrests -

:00:16.:00:18.

following the armed siege in Jarrow last night, in which four

:00:19.:00:21.

hostages were held by a man, armed with a sawn-off shotgun.

:00:22.:00:24.

It happened at Coral bookmakers in Grange Road.

:00:25.:00:27.

The standoff lasted three hours, before armed police ended the siege.

:00:28.:00:32.

Officers say they used a "non-lethal weapon" in the incident

:00:33.:00:34.

A 39-year-old man's been arrested and he's been questioned

:00:35.:00:40.

They watched and they waited, local people beyond the police

:00:41.:00:49.

cordon trying to understand what was happening right

:00:50.:00:51.

Because inside the Coral bookmakers last night - a siege.

:00:52.:00:58.

Police were called shortly after a quarter to six to reports

:00:59.:01:01.

that a man carrying a firearm had gone inside.

:01:02.:01:06.

Imagine what it was like if you knew someone inside there.

:01:07.:01:09.

20-year-old Nicholas Mcullough was working

:01:10.:01:11.

His mum was absolutely traumatised when she found out.

:01:12.:01:18.

That's when she called me and we got cut off.

:01:19.:01:21.

I came straight down because I thought, oh,

:01:22.:01:23.

I want to hear about it, shot gun, goodness me.

:01:24.:01:25.

We were just having our tea in the pub.

:01:26.:01:28.

Her son works in the bookies and was being held hostage.

:01:29.:01:35.

Nicholas and two other hostages were released

:01:36.:01:37.

At 8.45 another hostage was also released.

:01:38.:01:41.

And then, five minutes later, this...

:01:42.:01:47.

was a less lethal weapon they used but look carefully, you can see one

:01:48.:02:08.

of the officers calmly picking up what looks like a shotgun and place

:02:09.:02:11.

The police say this was a textbook operation.

:02:12.:02:15.

It was quickly apparent that there were three customers

:02:16.:02:20.

inside and one member of staff and the man had

:02:21.:02:22.

entered with what appeared to be a sawn-off shotgun.

:02:23.:02:24.

That is now being examined by specialist people.

:02:25.:02:26.

We don't yet know if it was a real weapon or

:02:27.:02:29.

We are pleased with how it went last night.

:02:30.:02:32.

The Coral bookmakers remained closed today

:02:33.:02:42.

while police continued their inquiries.

:02:43.:02:45.

Meanwhile, a 39-year-old man was arrested at the scene

:02:46.:02:47.

and a firearm was seized by officers.

:02:48.:03:00.

A man's appeared in court charged with murder after the body of a man

:03:01.:03:03.

was found in a house in West Cumbria on Saturday morning.

:03:04.:03:06.

29-year-old Daniel McMullen died at the property in Workington.

:03:07.:03:08.

Calvin Patrickson, who's 22 and from Workington,

:03:09.:03:10.

appeared before magistrates this morning and was

:03:11.:03:12.

The Great North Air Ambulance has submitted plans

:03:13.:03:19.

for a new multimillion pound operational base.

:03:20.:03:24.

The charity has agreed a deal in principle for the site

:03:25.:03:27.

at Urlay Nook near Stockton and has put a planning application

:03:28.:03:30.

This is despite the service being given less money than it had

:03:31.:03:36.

anticipated towards the cost, by the government.

:03:37.:03:42.

It's been part of the Scarborough coastline since 1921,

:03:43.:03:51.

but today councillors narrowly voted to demolish the Futurist Theatre -

:03:52.:03:54.

Getting rid of the theatre has been described as leaving Scarborough

:03:55.:03:58.

And today there were lots of angry people in the council meeting,

:03:59.:04:05.

In its heyday the Futurist played host to some of the biggest names

:04:06.:04:12.

Shirley Bassey, the Beatles and Ken Dodd have all

:04:13.:04:15.

Today councillors voted to demolish the iconic building, which

:04:16.:04:18.

has been part of the Scarborough seafront since the 1920s.

:04:19.:04:25.

More than 100 campaigners marched through the

:04:26.:04:26.

One heckling protester had to be removed

:04:27.:04:31.

When Scarborough Borough councillors voted in favour of demolition,

:04:32.:04:46.

it came as a bitter blow to those who fought to save it.

:04:47.:04:50.

Did you expect it could have been saved?

:04:51.:05:00.

It will cost ?4 million to knock the Futurist down and shore

:05:01.:05:08.

The land will be made available for redevelopment, which some

:05:09.:05:12.

It's been going on for 20 years, people have been coming forward with

:05:13.:05:22.

ideas, but in my opinion they have not back them up with a proper

:05:23.:05:25.

business case to show after any refurbishment had been done and

:05:26.:05:28.

reconfiguration had been carried out that it would provide a sustainable

:05:29.:05:30.

theatre to operate and make money throughout the year.

:05:31.:05:33.

The Futurist once played host to a huge part in

:05:34.:05:39.

the Scarborough summer season, attracting thousands of visitors.

:05:40.:05:41.

In recent years audiences have dwindled

:05:42.:05:42.

Campaigners have fought long and hard to keep it

:05:43.:05:46.

open but today its fate was sealed and the curtain has finally

:05:47.:05:49.

The biggest food bank in the UK says it's running out of basic supplies -

:05:50.:06:05.

following a 25% increase in demand the week before Christmas.

:06:06.:06:07.

The Newcastle West End Foodbank usually needs 10 trolleys

:06:08.:06:10.

full of food every day to manage its demand.

:06:11.:06:12.

And tonight a lorry will be heading to Epsom in Surrey

:06:13.:06:14.

and Harrow in Middlesex to collect surplus food.

:06:15.:06:16.

This is the warehouse of the biggest foodbank in the UK.

:06:17.:06:25.

And 1,000 people rely on donations from here every week.

:06:26.:06:28.

Stocks may look fairly healthy, but balancing the mix of donations

:06:29.:06:31.

We have 14 pallets of tinned vegetables.

:06:32.:06:40.

That could last one month or maybe a little bit more.

:06:41.:06:43.

But we cannot make up a lot of boxes with just vegetables.

:06:44.:06:45.

We need other food to build up a parcel as well.

:06:46.:06:54.

In the week before Christmas 25% more people were

:06:55.:06:57.

given food and so some essential supplies are running low.

:06:58.:06:59.

This week the food bank will hand out

:07:00.:07:01.

days but we'll run out by the end of the week.

:07:02.:07:12.

What does that mean for people coming here?

:07:13.:07:16.

We need to substitute for things we have plenty

:07:17.:07:18.

of, which means the dietary balance goes out.

:07:19.:07:21.

Tonight volunteers are again going outside the region

:07:22.:07:24.

to pick up surplus food from warehouses in the south of England.

:07:25.:07:27.

We can ask them, we're very short of this, and they'll try their best.

:07:28.:07:39.

But we're basically clearing out the back of their warehouse.

:07:40.:07:43.

We tend to get the things they have got the most of.

:07:44.:07:46.

And funnily enough it tends to be what

:07:47.:07:48.

It's hoped these fresh supplies will keep them

:07:49.:07:53.

Sports news, and the draw for the fourth round of the FA Cup

:07:54.:07:58.

Middlesbrough have been awarded another home tie,

:07:59.:08:08.

this time against League Two side Accrington Stanley, while Sunderland

:08:09.:08:10.

will also be at home if they win their replay at Burnley,

:08:11.:08:13.

to Oxford United if they overcome Birmingham City in their replay

:08:14.:08:18.

The matches are to be played between January 27th and the 30th.

:08:19.:08:23.

Meanwhile Middlesbrough have tonight sold striker David Nugent

:08:24.:08:28.

to Championship club Derby County, managed by former Boro

:08:29.:08:30.

boss Steve McClaren, for an undisclosed fee.

:08:31.:08:36.

Time for the week's weather prospects

:08:37.:08:38.

and I hear some snow may finally be on the way.

:08:39.:08:47.

Some snow but what were in for is a cold blast of air from the north

:08:48.:08:53.

which may bring snow showers for some of us but not just yet. Tonight

:08:54.:08:59.

any showers will be of rain. More widespread in the West and the East.

:09:00.:09:04.

Some clear spells in between. Temperatures will hold at roundabout

:09:05.:09:08.

four or five Celsius because of the breeze and cloud coming and going as

:09:09.:09:14.

well. Tomorrow the showers continue on and off. More widespread in the

:09:15.:09:18.

west and East. Eastern areas hang on to the best dry and bright weather

:09:19.:09:23.

through the day. Highs of roundabout turn Celsius, 50 Fahrenheit.

:09:24.:09:27.

Westerly winds will be quite brisk at times tomorrow. The showers

:09:28.:09:31.

continue tomorrow evening and into the night. A lot of cloud on the

:09:32.:09:36.

whole. Further outbreaks of rain, especially in the West again. The

:09:37.:09:40.

temperature is holed up with a brisk and gusty westerly winds tomorrow

:09:41.:09:46.

night. Around about five Celsius again. Heading through the day on

:09:47.:09:49.

Wednesday, we will start to see some signs of change to colder weather.

:09:50.:09:54.

Showers turning wintry over high ground especially. We could see a

:09:55.:09:58.

covering may be on the North Pennines by the end of Wednesday.

:09:59.:10:03.

Any snow will blow about as well in the gusty north-westerly wind.

:10:04.:10:07.

Temperatures dipping as well, even at lower levels, seven or eight

:10:08.:10:10.

Celsius at best on Wednesday afternoon. Looking at the pressure

:10:11.:10:14.

sequence in the middle and latter part of the working week, strong

:10:15.:10:20.

wind, north-westerly, and more of a northerly on Thursday and into

:10:21.:10:24.

Friday. That is bringing cold air and encouraging showers to turn

:10:25.:10:28.

increasingly into sleet and snow as we had through Thursday and Friday.

:10:29.:10:33.

Very windy day on Thursday. Westerly, turning north-westerly,

:10:34.:10:37.

some showers, some sleet and snow among them. But there will be some

:10:38.:10:43.

brightness in between as well. Temperatures cooler at four and five

:10:44.:10:48.

Celsius at best on Thursday. Wintry showers continues on Friday and

:10:49.:10:52.

again temperatures, you will be lucky if you see five Celsius on

:10:53.:10:56.

Friday afternoon. That is how it is looking towards the weekend. We will

:10:57.:11:01.

keep you updated on your local radio station. The
