It has a population of a hundred thousand.

:00:11.:00:13.

But it's claimed Carlisle in Cumbria has been left without enough

:00:14.:00:15.

The fire brigades' union says that recently, only 5 were on duty.

:00:16.:00:22.

But the fire service says the union is being alarmist.

:00:23.:00:24.

Our correspondent Mark Denten has been in Carlisle

:00:25.:00:26.

The Fire Brigade union in Carlisle date they are facing a really,

:00:27.:00:40.

really dire situation. Why? They say on Christmas day, there were just

:00:41.:00:49.

four of five full-time firefighters operating in the city, a city of

:00:50.:00:55.

108,000 people. With two major factories, of course, in the cities

:00:56.:01:00.

and another. They have real concerns about the future. The management of

:01:01.:01:04.

the Fire Service say that they accept those figures are right and

:01:05.:01:06.

that there were four or five full-time crews in duty in Carlisle

:01:07.:01:12.

on Christmas Day evening but they say that rather crews that could be

:01:13.:01:15.

called in from other parts of Cumbria if they were needed. They

:01:16.:01:19.

also say the number of instances have fallen over the last five years

:01:20.:01:23.

that they need to attend. The deputy chief fire officer for Cumbria is

:01:24.:01:27.

Steve Newell. That is absolutely ludicrous to

:01:28.:01:31.

suggest that we were in a dire situation. We would have on average

:01:32.:01:36.

35 of our 45 fire engines available. Yes, the union are right to see that

:01:37.:01:40.

in a city on that particular day there were only one of the two fire

:01:41.:01:43.

engines available but what I can say is that there is adequate and

:01:44.:01:46.

appropriate support available from the nearby retained fire stations

:01:47.:01:50.

such as Longtown, Brampton and Britain.

:01:51.:01:57.

Cumbria Fire and rescue is recruiting new firefighters and

:01:58.:01:59.

there will be another 11 coming on. They are in their training from next

:02:00.:02:04.

month and they will start work for the Fire Service here in Cumbria in

:02:05.:02:05.

the Fire Service here in Cumbria in June.

:02:06.:02:11.

The owner of one of North Yorkshire's largest tourist

:02:12.:02:13.

attractions says he's worried about the impact of

:02:14.:02:15.

Nicholas Howard - from Castle Howard, near Malton -

:02:16.:02:19.

says he's worried people could start thinking twice about paying a visit.

:02:20.:02:21.

Places like Castle Howard are the reason people come to Yorkshire.

:02:22.:02:29.

Last summer, record numbers flocked to the region.

:02:30.:02:33.

But here there's a growing concern that plans to frack for gas

:02:34.:02:38.

could have a detrimental impact on the economy.

:02:39.:02:40.

And there is the whole business of the air quality.

:02:41.:02:46.

And the perceived effect, even if it's not as great

:02:47.:02:51.

as we expect it might be, the perception of it will be great.

:02:52.:02:54.

Rydale is known as one of the most beautiful

:02:55.:02:56.

places in the country, people are going to flock to it.

:02:57.:02:58.

But if it's known a place where there are gas fields,

:02:59.:03:01.

At the moment only one site in the region has planning

:03:02.:03:06.

permission to carry out the controversial

:03:07.:03:07.

But it's thought shale gas is located under much of Yorkshire.

:03:08.:03:11.

The industry insists existing conventional gas sites have had

:03:12.:03:14.

little impact on tourism, and going forward disruption

:03:15.:03:17.

There has certainly been a lot of protest activity, a lot of noise

:03:18.:03:23.

But I do think that gives us a responsibility to show to people

:03:24.:03:27.

that we can produce this in a sensitive way that

:03:28.:03:31.

doesn't have too much of an impact on local people.

:03:32.:03:33.

And that's up to us as an industry to demonstrate.

:03:34.:03:37.

At the moment, much of the noise referred to is coming

:03:38.:03:40.

This one is directly on the routeof this year's Tour de Yorkshire.

:03:41.:03:44.

But protesters say they wouldn't be here if the industry wasn't.

:03:45.:03:52.

For the organisation responsible for selling the region's image,

:03:53.:03:55.

Everyday, regionally, nationally and internationally

:03:56.:03:57.

We are the brand guardians for the Yorkshire brand,

:03:58.:04:04.

and we will work hard or even harder to make sure that that brand grows

:04:05.:04:08.

Tourism has always been a massive part of Yorkshire's economy,

:04:09.:04:14.

but since the Tour de France things have really picked up,

:04:15.:04:17.

and no one wants to see that progress backpedal.

:04:18.:04:26.

A Cumbrian police constable has pleaded guilty at Carlisle crown

:04:27.:04:28.

Nicholas Pool, who's 29 and from Penrith,

:04:29.:04:32.

admits he attempted to incite sexual activity with a 12-year-old girl.

:04:33.:04:35.

His case has been adjourned until March, and he's been

:04:36.:04:38.

A bus driver's denied causing the death of a pensioner -

:04:39.:04:46.

who was killed in Darlington town centre.

:04:47.:04:50.

82-year-old grandmother - Eileen Brennan - died

:04:51.:04:52.

after the crash on July the 7th last year.

:04:53.:04:54.

Today 52-year-old Michael Gilbert - from Middleton St George -

:04:55.:04:58.

He denied causing the death by dangerous driving and causing

:04:59.:05:05.

He's been released on bail and is due to go on trial in August.

:05:06.:05:12.

The fast food chain KFC has been ordered to pay almost a million

:05:13.:05:15.

pounds in fines and costs after two employees suffered burns at two

:05:16.:05:18.

A 16-year-old burnt his hands and arms at the Teesside Park

:05:19.:05:24.

Another employee suffered serious burns at the Wellington Square

:05:25.:05:29.

Kentucky Fried Chicken pleaded guilty to two offences under

:05:30.:05:32.

Now - you might associate a few musicians with North Yorkshire -

:05:33.:05:40.

A year after his death - a play that's based on the star

:05:41.:05:46.

"From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads" is coming to Sunderland,

:05:47.:05:50.

Hartlepool and North Yorkshire, where Bowie's father came from.

:05:51.:05:52.

The actor playing all nine characters on stage,

:05:53.:05:54.

says David was deeply proud of his Yorkshire roots.

:05:55.:06:02.

The main character in the story is trying to find his dad throughout

:06:03.:06:05.

Obviously that has quite a strong connection with Bowie

:06:06.:06:09.

and his father as well, who come from the North

:06:10.:06:11.

David always wanted to come back here and perform

:06:12.:06:18.

here and it was always something that he had a passion for and that's

:06:19.:06:21.

why it's such a fantastic experience to be able to perform

:06:22.:06:24.

That's all from me for tonight - time now to get the weekend

:06:25.:06:28.

weather forecast - here's Jennifer Bartram.

:06:29.:06:37.

Good evening. It is going to be a mostly dry and settled weekend but

:06:38.:06:43.

it is going to be feeling cold and we start Saturday with a widespread

:06:44.:06:46.

frost. There will be patchy mist and fog as well through the morning, but

:06:47.:06:50.

generally plenty of spells of sunshine. By the afternoon we will

:06:51.:06:54.

start to see this cloud is just pushing in from the east. Bringing a

:06:55.:06:57.

few add pace of light rain or drizzle across the North York Moors

:06:58.:07:02.

with temperatures of five or 6 degrees. So it is going to be

:07:03.:07:06.

feeling cold. Into Sunday morning we do it all again. Another widespread

:07:07.:07:10.

frost and perhaps a cloudy start, especially across Cumbria on Sunday.

:07:11.:07:14.

Once again we will see the cloud breaking so we should seize goods

:07:15.:07:18.

spells of sunshine by the afternoon. Temperatures on Sunday perhaps a

:07:19.:07:21.

little bit lower than Saturday: around four of 5 degrees beehive.

:07:22.:07:26.

Here is the outlook, then, for the weekend. Q is the National forecast

:07:27.:07:27.

with hail and. there isn't that much around it will

:07:28.:07:31.

feel cooler. Can we keep it going until the start of the new week? I

:07:32.:07:36.

suspect we can. Unconfirmed about -- concerned about the fog around. Here

:07:37.:07:38.

is Helen with the national picture. Good evening. The weather is upon

:07:39.:07:48.

us. The cloud has made all the difference this week in particular.

:07:49.:07:52.

We have had some wonderful weather watcher pictures, this is Marlowe in

:07:53.:07:56.

Buckinghamshire, this was Conwy earlier in the day. Some areas still

:07:57.:08:02.

have the cloud. What a difference that makes. Edinburgh, the central

:08:03.:08:10.

lowlands, plagued by this band of narrow cloud, overnight more

:08:11.:08:12.
