North Yorkshire Police is investigating after a confrontation

:00:13.:00:14.

between a huntsman and a protestor at the Middleton Hunt

:00:15.:00:17.

Charles Carter, from Birdsall near York, was caught on camera

:00:18.:00:21.

making sexual comments to Linda Hoggard, when she

:00:22.:00:24.

He has now resigned his position as a Conservative

:00:25.:00:30.

district councillor. John Cundy reports.

:00:31.:00:33.

Excuse me, did you know hunting was banned?

:00:34.:00:36.

The moment when Linda Hoggard approached Charles Carter to

:00:37.:00:38.

The hunt protester challenges Mr Carter and he starts filming her.

:00:39.:00:47.

I would quite like to shoot you, actually.

:00:48.:00:50.

Charles Carter has been a district councillor in

:00:51.:01:01.

Norfolk for five years but he resigned overnight

:01:02.:01:03.

after the revelations of his conduct.

:01:04.:01:05.

His council leader said he was appalled.

:01:06.:01:07.

In June 2015 Charles Carter, as master of the west Norfolk fox

:01:08.:01:10.

hounds, was interviewed about the ban on fox hunting.

:01:11.:01:17.

Having to look over one's shoulder all the time in fear of

:01:18.:01:19.

breaching bad law is not what the country should be about.

:01:20.:01:24.

But Charles Carter has now moved his home near York and

:01:25.:01:28.

the Middleton Hunt, with whom he now rides,

:01:29.:01:31.

is described as one of the most historic in north

:01:32.:01:34.

Yorkshire, going back more than 200 years.

:01:35.:01:37.

Now Charles Carter's comments have bought controversy to

:01:38.:01:40.

I don't know if it has been blown out of proportion.

:01:41.:01:45.

He has definitely stepped over the line.

:01:46.:01:46.

That's not relevant to the situation at all.

:01:47.:01:55.

It is now understood that Mr Carter has

:01:56.:01:59.

now phoned Linda Hoggard to apologise for his behaviour.

:02:00.:02:02.

We hear of a number of reports of people who are abused

:02:03.:02:05.

and spat at, harrassed, intimidated, this is a

:02:06.:02:08.

problem that is seemingly getting out of control,

:02:09.:02:10.

one of the problems is that the hunt lobby organisation has

:02:11.:02:14.

refused pointedly to condemn or to apologise

:02:15.:02:17.

for these incidents and they are getting worse and worse.

:02:18.:02:26.

North Yorkshire Police have confirmed they are

:02:27.:02:31.

Andrew Bell was the first person from the UK to undergo

:02:32.:02:42.

treatment that he hopes will help him walk again.

:02:43.:02:44.

Andrew, who's from County Durham, was left paralysed after a motorbike

:02:45.:02:47.

Doctors told him he would never walk again.

:02:48.:02:51.

But he's just returned from a second trip to Thailand

:02:52.:02:54.

where doctors say he's moving towards a point where he'll

:02:55.:02:56.

become the first patient with complete spinal injury

:02:57.:02:58.

Our health reporter Sharon Barbour has this exclusive report.

:02:59.:03:05.

Standing is a remarkable achievement for Andrew Bell.

:03:06.:03:09.

Indescribable to look at myself in the mirror pretty

:03:10.:03:11.

Andrew from County Durham was paralysed from the waist down

:03:12.:03:17.

after a motorbike incident and told he would never walk,

:03:18.:03:21.

But a former fighter, he wasn't ever going to give up trying.

:03:22.:03:29.

He went out to Bangkok where doctors injected millions of embryonic chord

:03:30.:03:34.

stem cells and an electrical stimulator was fitted

:03:35.:03:38.

For the last three months he's been back in Thailand

:03:39.:03:43.

And here he's been learning to walk again.

:03:44.:03:53.

And for his mother, earlier this month, a birthday message,

:03:54.:03:55.

Hi, Mum, I just wanted to say - hope you have a fantastic birthday,

:03:56.:04:01.

sorry I can't be there but

:04:02.:04:03.

Having been told 18 months ago round a hospital bed that

:04:04.:04:14.

he was paralysed, be able to stand or walk again, and then to see

:04:15.:04:20.

on my birthday there is Andrew in Thailand standing,

:04:21.:04:24.

Yes, I couldn't wish for anything more.

:04:25.:04:31.

When we last filmed Andrew, he was starting to move his feet

:04:32.:04:35.

His progress, according to a stem cell professor

:04:36.:04:42.

Phenomenal to say the least, the fact he can stand for an hour

:04:43.:04:48.

with relatively little aid, little support, after such

:04:49.:04:53.

What we think is going on is that the injected stem cells

:04:54.:05:00.

were capable of providing what we call growth factors

:05:01.:05:02.

and other chemicals that induced the stem cells which already exist

:05:03.:05:06.

in Andrew's body to regenerate themselves.

:05:07.:05:12.

The doctors in Thailand now believe he may become the first patient

:05:13.:05:15.

with complete spinal chord injury to be able to walk again.

:05:16.:05:20.

Andrew hopes for even more than that.

:05:21.:05:23.

extremely fit and I've done the Great North Run so

:05:24.:05:28.

my ultimate goal is to do the Great North Run again.

:05:29.:05:37.

A court's heard claims that a man would rather be convicted

:05:38.:05:40.

of a horrendous murder than reveal details

:05:41.:05:42.

Gareth Dack, who's 33, is accused of strangling 79-year-old

:05:43.:05:46.

Norma Bell before setting fire to her house in

:05:47.:05:49.

Dack denies murdering the pensioner and today he told the court

:05:50.:05:54.

he couldn't be convicted of something he didn't do.

:05:55.:05:57.

Gareth Dack described Norma Bell as a wonderful woman who he knew

:05:58.:06:03.

well, but at a cross-examination by the prosecution he was today

:06:04.:06:06.

accused of trying to hoodwink the court, telling lies and bending

:06:07.:06:09.

the truth as he tried to account for his movements before her death.

:06:10.:06:16.

The night before Norma Bell's body was discovered at her home

:06:17.:06:19.

in Hartlepool, Gareth Dack said he had been selling drugs

:06:20.:06:21.

Standing in the witness box, the prosecution said

:06:22.:06:28.

credibility that he said who he sold cocaine to.

:06:29.:06:34.

Dack replied he could not give those names because some of the people

:06:35.:06:37.

he sold drugs to were solicitors and police community

:06:38.:06:39.

The prosecution said those people could provide him with an alibi

:06:40.:06:45.

and he would rather be convicted of this horrendous murder

:06:46.:06:48.

To that he replied he could not be convicted

:06:49.:06:55.

Gareth Dack said he visited Norma Bell to fix her gate the night

:06:56.:07:02.

before her body was discovered and he said she was

:07:03.:07:04.

He said his DNA was found in the pensioner's house

:07:05.:07:09.

The Conservatives have revealed their candidate

:07:10.:07:22.

Last week, Labour named Gillian Troughton and UKIP named Fiona Mills

:07:23.:07:29.

Rebecca Hanson is contesting the seat for the Liberal Democrats.

:07:30.:07:33.

The by-election, caused by the resignation

:07:34.:07:35.

of Labour's Jamie Reed, will take place on February 23rd.

:07:36.:07:38.

You can see a full list of candidates on the BBC News website.

:07:39.:07:44.

The only bar in Teesside which caters for people who don't

:07:45.:07:47.

drink alcohol enjoyed a successful opening tonight.

:07:48.:07:50.

The owners claim it offers a night out with a difference,

:07:51.:07:52.

serving food and soft drinks, whilst supporting people

:07:53.:07:54.

Phil Chapman sent this report from the venue.

:07:55.:08:00.

Dry January might be coming to an end for people trying

:08:01.:08:03.

to detox after the excesses of the festive season.

:08:04.:08:06.

But for those struggling with real drink problems,

:08:07.:08:08.

Bar Zero will provide a much-needed venue where they can

:08:09.:08:10.

My name's Miranda and I've been in recovery for nearly four years now.

:08:11.:08:16.

I think it's a great place to come, a nice safe environment.

:08:17.:08:19.

It's a place I'll bring my little boy to on a Saturday afternoon,

:08:20.:08:22.

watch the footy, something to eat, bring my family.

:08:23.:08:26.

It's just nice not to be in a rowdy bar or have temptation

:08:27.:08:31.

It's about recovery, shall we say, instead of being drawn

:08:32.:08:37.

into the dysfunctional behaviours that drugs and alcohol

:08:38.:08:45.

I'm a drug and alcohol treatment worker here in Middlesbrough

:08:46.:08:50.

and what our clients are feeding back to us is that after recovery,

:08:51.:08:54.

after we've been through treatment, there's no social activities.

:08:55.:08:56.

So to have a place to come to where it's actually quite

:08:57.:08:59.

a friendly atmosphere and it's a great community environment

:09:00.:09:03.

for people to stay in treatment and in recovery.

:09:04.:09:07.

After the official launch tonight, Bar Zero will be open every Friday

:09:08.:09:10.

One thing they didn't need there tonight was any ice in those drinks.

:09:11.:09:33.

It's going to be another cold one tonight. Temperatures sub zero

:09:34.:09:40.

widely. Some patchy cloud around and clear spells. -2, minus three

:09:41.:09:47.

Celsius. The air coming up of the continent is so cold and dry. You

:09:48.:09:52.

probably won't see that much in the way of frost forming, the error is

:09:53.:09:57.

to drive. Tomorrow a cold cold start with sunny spells in the morning

:09:58.:10:00.

before the Clydesdale to increase from south-west through the day and

:10:01.:10:03.

most of us will end the afternoon and a fairly cloudy note.

:10:04.:10:10.

Temperatures up on today, making two or three Celsius. Some in Penrith

:10:11.:10:16.

might not four or 5 degrees. We will get a weather front coming in from

:10:17.:10:19.

the west over the next few days bringing rain, also introduces a

:10:20.:10:24.

south-westerly wind, temperatures should start to recover. This

:10:25.:10:30.

frontal system on Sunday, not sure exactly how far north that rain will

:10:31.:10:35.

stretch. Saturday, after overnight rain, cloudy skies, showery

:10:36.:10:40.

outbreaks of rain and with that south-westerly breeze, the

:10:41.:10:43.

temperatures should make seven or eight Celsius despite the cloud.

:10:44.:10:48.

Sunday, most places dry and bright, again at seven or eight Celsius at

:10:49.:10:53.

best with lighter winds. Some thicker cloud and the odd spot of

:10:54.:10:56.

rain in southern area later in the day. I will leave you with the

:10:57.:11:01.

summary for tomorrow for the north-east and Cumbria.

:11:02.:11:03.

weekend. It's swings and roundabouts, higher temperatures but

:11:04.:11:04.

some rain as well. Good evening. It's been dry so far

:11:05.:11:15.

this January but as it draws to a close it looks like we will see some

:11:16.:11:21.

rain at last. It's been an interesting today a bitterly cold in

:11:22.:11:24.

Norfolk, way we kept the grey cloud all day and the grey cloud gave a

:11:25.:11:30.

dusting of snow in places. This is a lovely picture sent in from Sutton

:11:31.:11:34.

Coldfield. Rob Wales and much of Scotland it's been a beautiful day,

:11:35.:11:36.
