Welcome to Wednesday's Look North Tonight.

:00:00.:00:00.

A teenager appears in court charged in connection

:00:00.:00:08.

with the death of seven-year-old Katie Rough from York.

:00:09.:00:17.

One of my good friends is really friends with her mum and she has

:00:18.:00:22.

taken it really hard and so have her daughters because they were in the

:00:23.:00:23.

same class. Also tonight: Claudia's Law wins

:00:24.:00:24.

parliamentary approval so families of people who've gone missing can

:00:25.:00:29.

deal with their financial affairs. Gusts of up to 93 miles an hour

:00:30.:00:32.

cause disruption across Yorkshire. Could birds of prey be brought

:00:33.:00:36.

in to deter seagulls from stealing Could birds of prey be brought

:00:37.:00:39.

in to deter seagulls from stealing It has been a very windy day to day.

:00:40.:00:59.

West of Sheffield there was 90 miles an hour and it was the windiest

:01:00.:01:02.

place in the country. Join me for the latest.

:01:03.:01:08.

Tonight, a teenager's appeared in court charged with the murder

:01:09.:01:11.

Katie Rough was found critically injured on a playing field

:01:12.:01:15.

A 15-year-old girl was today remanded into secure accommodation,

:01:16.:01:25.

charged with her murder and with possession

:01:26.:01:27.

Another very busy delay -- day here for the police here in York. A

:01:28.:01:43.

number of people coming here with flowers to lay beyond the police

:01:44.:01:47.

take just behind me. Another sombre day and a very difficult day for the

:01:48.:01:52.

people of this area of the city, not least for the family of little Katie

:01:53.:01:56.

Rough who were in court today. A lot of what was said we cannot report

:01:57.:02:00.

for legal reasons, but a lot of it was very upsetting for anyone to

:02:01.:02:04.

listen to, never mind for the little girl 's relatives. The family of

:02:05.:02:10.

Katie Rough, at court this morning. The first sorrow filled duty of life

:02:11.:02:15.

without the seven-year old. Katie seemingly had so much of her life

:02:16.:02:19.

still ahead of her just a few days ago. On Monday it was cut short. She

:02:20.:02:24.

died here on Alness Drive in the Woodthorpe area of York. The court

:02:25.:02:30.

heard she had suffered significant lacerations to her neck and chest.

:02:31.:02:34.

Police investigations continued at the scene, with a metal detector

:02:35.:02:39.

used to search nearby undergrowth. Meanwhile the pile of floral

:02:40.:02:44.

tributes grows. Four miles from the scene, the teenage girl accused of

:02:45.:02:47.

killing Katie appeared in court for the first time. The accused, who was

:02:48.:02:52.

15 years old, nodded to use show that she understood as the charges

:02:53.:02:56.

were read out. Members of Katie 's family were also in court and some

:02:57.:02:58.

were visibly upset as the proceedings finished.

:02:59.:03:19.

The teenager is charged with murdering Katie Rough on Monday and

:03:20.:03:21.

also with possession of a weapon, namely a knife. Outside Katie 's

:03:22.:03:24.

school the feeling remains one of shock. Just a little girl, it's

:03:25.:03:26.

really scary, I would say, you know? And then you don't want to lose

:03:27.:03:29.

sight of any of your loved ones now. One of my good friends is really

:03:30.:03:32.

good friends with armatures taken it really hard and also her daughters

:03:33.:03:34.

because they are in the same class. Tributes were paid here in York and

:03:35.:03:37.

also in the House of Commons. Sure the whole house will join in

:03:38.:03:40.

heartfelt condolences for family and friends of the tragic death of

:03:41.:03:44.

seven-year-old Katie Rough in York earlier this week. Also join the

:03:45.:03:48.

right Honourable gentleman in expressing condolences to family and

:03:49.:03:52.

friends of little Katie who died so tragically. Fundraising page to

:03:53.:03:55.

support Katie 's family been set up by York resident

:03:56.:04:10.

Maggie Jackson. She didn't know the family but says she wanted to help.

:04:11.:04:13.

It isn't just me, this people all over the UK donating, it isn't just

:04:14.:04:16.

something I am doing. It is in the hearts and heads of so many people

:04:17.:04:19.

and that family, there is so much love for them at the moment and

:04:20.:04:22.

people just want to help. Katie 's family were not speaking today, they

:04:23.:04:24.

already know the pain of what they have lost, but not why. That funding

:04:25.:04:28.

page mentioned has raised ?4000 in just one day. As regards to the

:04:29.:04:32.

court case, it is too serious to be dealt with by the Magistrates' Court

:04:33.:04:36.

so it will go to Leeds Crown Court on Friday and a teenage girl will be

:04:37.:04:38.

held in custody until then. Winds of more than 90 miles per hour

:04:39.:04:43.

have been causing problems Trees were brought down blocking,

:04:44.:04:46.

roads and rail lines, and flights were cancelled

:04:47.:04:49.

in and out of Leeds The winds have now eased

:04:50.:04:51.

and services are slowly getting back to normal,

:04:52.:04:55.

but for one couple in Bradford, last night's storms will take a very

:04:56.:04:58.

long time to recover from, It is not the wake-up call it you

:04:59.:05:12.

expect first thing in the morning. This 80 foot beech tree smashed its

:05:13.:05:16.

way through this bungalow in Birkenshaw after its roots were

:05:17.:05:21.

wrenched out by strong winds. I heard a loud bang like a bomb had

:05:22.:05:26.

gone off. When I looked there was rubble all down the landing and I

:05:27.:05:30.

knew it was bad but I didn't know what it was. We came outside and I

:05:31.:05:34.

saw it was a tree and we were very lucky to get away with it, I think.

:05:35.:05:39.

I wouldn't say was habitable now. The bathroom has been destroyed, a

:05:40.:05:43.

lot of the internal walls and all of the roof in the centre has been

:05:44.:05:49.

destroyed so it has had it. In Bradford this school was stuck to

:05:50.:05:55.

students after slates flew from the Victorian roof. Meanwhile in South

:05:56.:05:58.

Yorkshire high winds peeled away corrugated sheeting in Sheffield

:05:59.:06:06.

city centre and gusts of 93 mph were recorded at high Bradfield. Not only

:06:07.:06:11.

buildings have succumbed to the force of nature, across West

:06:12.:06:15.

Yorkshire trees were battered. Closing or blocking roads. This

:06:16.:06:20.

evening Bridgewater Place is slowly getting back to normal. Earlier the

:06:21.:06:24.

roads were closed because of high winds, causing traffic gridlock

:06:25.:06:29.

across parts of Leeds. If the roads aren't the only place where there

:06:30.:06:33.

were problems. Landing at Leeds Bradford Airport was going to be a

:06:34.:06:37.

challenge. It took all the pilots skills to bring this plane down

:06:38.:06:43.

safely. Many passengers faced delays and cancellations. The strongest

:06:44.:06:49.

wind we record here to here was in excess of 50 knots which is unsafe

:06:50.:06:53.

operation so that was the reason why we had a number of delayed

:06:54.:06:56.

departures and cancellations this morning. Nearly 40,000 homes across

:06:57.:07:03.

the North lost their power supply today. It has now been restored. As

:07:04.:07:07.

for the bungalow in Birkenshaw, it is unlikely the owner will be moving

:07:08.:07:13.

in soon. Winds have finally started to die down, but can you believe it?

:07:14.:07:17.

The forecast for the next few days is sleet and snow.

:07:18.:07:22.

Later on Look North: Leading by example.

:07:23.:07:23.

Triathlete Jess Learmonth champions swimming sessions for beginners

:07:24.:07:25.

Proposals in memory of the missing York chef Claudia Lawrence,

:07:26.:07:38.

which are designed to give families greater control over

:07:39.:07:40.

the affairs of missing people, have cleared their first hurdle

:07:41.:07:43.

The bill was championed by Claudia's father Peter.

:07:44.:07:46.

Dubbed Claudia's Law, it was given the go-ahead in parliament

:07:47.:07:48.

Our Correspondent John Cundy explains.

:07:49.:07:55.

For nearly eight years Peter Lawrence has suffered the pain

:07:56.:07:58.

of not knowing what became of his vanished daughter Claudia,

:07:59.:08:00.

a pain compounded by laws which have prevented him from dealing

:08:01.:08:03.

with the crucial problem of her outstanding financial affairs.

:08:04.:08:07.

Today in the Commons, Kevin Hollinrake, on behalf of other

:08:08.:08:16.

North Yorkshire MPs won the first critical stage to get

:08:17.:08:20.

The creation of a new status of guardian of the property

:08:21.:08:25.

and affairs of a missing person will fill this void and provide

:08:26.:08:28.

a sensible and helpful solution to the practical and financial

:08:29.:08:31.

difficulties faced by families and others following a disappearance.

:08:32.:08:38.

Claudia Lawrence vanished without trace from her home

:08:39.:08:40.

in Heworth Road in York early on the morning of March 18th, 2009,

:08:41.:08:44.

Two major police investigations have failed to solve the mystery.

:08:45.:08:51.

Peter Lawrence quickly discovered he could do nothing

:08:52.:08:54.

about Claudia's financial affairs, but now a change he's championed

:08:55.:08:58.

in the law should give families legal status of guardian

:08:59.:09:03.

of the property and affairs of the missing.

:09:04.:09:12.

It would mean that everybody can deal with their missing

:09:13.:09:14.

loved one's mortgage, their direct debits,

:09:15.:09:16.

their investments, their insurances, just like we all do day-to-day

:09:17.:09:19.

Kevin Hollinrake's Bill now goes to its next hearing in February,

:09:20.:09:26.

without any parliamentary opposition it should now become law.

:09:27.:09:30.

We've just about got to the stage that we've won.

:09:31.:09:33.

You've got to remember that it's 22 months ago that the government

:09:34.:09:36.

committed to this bill and it's taken a private member,

:09:37.:09:40.

Kevin Hollinrake, one of our local MPs, for Thirsk and Malton to bring

:09:41.:09:43.

it forward himself, and at least we know it has got

:09:44.:09:47.

Peter Lawrence at least a legal triumph in the midst

:09:48.:09:53.

of the continuing anguish of missing Claudia Lawrence.

:09:54.:10:02.

Well, MP Kevin Hollinrake joins us now.

:10:03.:10:09.

Thank you for joining me. This has been a long time in the making,

:10:10.:10:16.

hasn't it. How does it finally feel to have the guardianship bill backed

:10:17.:10:20.

in the Commons? It is so important. It feels good but we have quite a

:10:21.:10:23.

few stages to go through yet before we can get it into law but we have

:10:24.:10:27.

got government support and backbench support across the house. We have

:10:28.:10:32.

got a lot of local support has well, of course, so we are getting there.

:10:33.:10:36.

The government has promised to support it

:10:37.:10:47.

so we need to get this through by May and there are quite a few stages

:10:48.:10:52.

to go through so we need to push as hard as we can to make sure that it

:10:53.:10:55.

does actually happen. The government did make a commitment to what has

:10:56.:10:58.

been called Claudius Law two years ago. Why has it taken so long and do

:10:59.:11:01.

think it will move forward now? Some things take a while in Parliament. I

:11:02.:11:04.

have only been here for two years but sometimes you have to keep

:11:05.:11:06.

knocking on the right doors the long enough for them to be opened. I have

:11:07.:11:11.

been at the right place at the right time and my colleagues have also

:11:12.:11:19.

helped and been very supportive. We need to find the Parliamentary time

:11:20.:11:23.

for it and we decided to do it this way, through this private members

:11:24.:11:26.

Bill process, which is more difficult to get legislation

:11:27.:11:29.

through, but we still can get it through and it is very important

:11:30.:11:34.

that we do. Claudia went missing eight years ago this March. What

:11:35.:11:39.

will this change mean for her family and her assets? Really we have to

:11:40.:11:43.

pay tribute to Mrs and Mrs Lawrence because they have championed this on

:11:44.:11:51.

behalf of other people. It won't help them now because they have gone

:11:52.:11:54.

through this terrible process of trying to deal with affairs of a

:11:55.:11:56.

missing person will stop there are around 4000 people go missing every

:11:57.:11:59.

year and they are tragic cases, terrible emotions at that time.

:12:00.:12:03.

Where are they, what has happened? Could I have done more? All of those

:12:04.:12:08.

things, and then they look at the actual logistics of dealing with the

:12:09.:12:11.

mortgage, the rent, the insurance and all those direct debits on

:12:12.:12:14.

behalf of those missing people and they find they cannot do anything

:12:15.:12:18.

about it because of data protection of contract law. There was no

:12:19.:12:22.

provision for this in law, whether it's in similar situations if you

:12:23.:12:25.

have an elderly relative who has dementia or a loved one passes away,

:12:26.:12:30.

you are able to step in in those circumstances but not in this one.

:12:31.:12:35.

Big step forward for Peter Lawrence and the rest of her family. Thank

:12:36.:12:37.

you for joining me this evening. The MP for Batley and Spen,

:12:38.:12:40.

Tracy Brabin, has called on Teresa May to step in to keep

:12:41.:12:42.

open the A department She told the Prime Minister

:12:43.:12:45.

that the ongoing winter beds crisis proved that the department is vital

:12:46.:12:49.

to the local community. Over Christmas I had constituents

:12:50.:12:51.

who were waiting 20 hours for a bed in a facility that might not even

:12:52.:12:54.

exist next year. Would the Prime Minister now,

:12:55.:13:00.

please, face reality and act now to stop this vital A

:13:01.:13:03.

service from disappearing. Decisions about services

:13:04.:13:09.

in the local area are rightly taken by the local national health service

:13:10.:13:12.

because we believe that it's local clinicians and also local patients

:13:13.:13:15.

and leaders who know what's best for their area, so it's about trying

:13:16.:13:19.

to tailor the services to provide the best possible needs

:13:20.:13:22.

for local people. Plans have gone on display

:13:23.:13:33.

for a new ?10 million cancer centre at the Friarage Hospital in

:13:34.:13:36.

Northallerton. A state-of-the-art facility

:13:37.:13:38.

would include a chemotherapy treatment lounge, able to treat up

:13:39.:13:39.

to 35 patients a day. The building would be named

:13:40.:13:42.

after Sir Robert Ogden, the North Yorkshire philanthropist,

:13:43.:13:44.

who's jointly funding the project I think it is fantastic. When you

:13:45.:13:59.

think of what you are going through, the psychological effects of all the

:14:00.:14:03.

things of being in dull rooms are waiting for results are waiting for

:14:04.:14:06.

scans and things like that, to try get a facility that has as much

:14:07.:14:10.

going at this as, to make you just feel a lot better about... It will

:14:11.:14:14.

not change what has happened, but it can make you feel a lot more

:14:15.:14:15.

positive. There's a bit of a row

:14:16.:14:17.

going on in the Peak District. People in the village of Foolow

:14:18.:14:20.

aren't pleased with plans to put The Peak Park bought

:14:21.:14:23.

the land to stop it being Now the Park wants a mobile

:14:24.:14:27.

caravan park there. This bit of prime Peak District land

:14:28.:14:30.

was going to be a caravan site until the park authority realised it

:14:31.:14:37.

had granted planning permission It bought the land for ?650,000

:14:38.:14:39.

so it could protect it from being Now, four years later, the Peak Park

:14:40.:14:48.

wants to turn it in to... It's the Peak District's job

:14:49.:14:56.

to protect this fantastic and very That's what the planning

:14:57.:15:02.

regulations are all about, but here the authority

:15:03.:15:05.

is judging its own application, something the villagers down

:15:06.:15:08.

the valley are not happy about. It is very concerning,

:15:09.:15:10.

it's a bit like the MPs voting Legally they are allowed to do it,

:15:11.:15:13.

it is part of their remit to be able to do it,

:15:14.:15:22.

but when something is as controversial as this,

:15:23.:15:25.

it really does beg into question the independence of their

:15:26.:15:27.

planning authority. Peter Webster has been

:15:28.:15:34.

a farmer here all his life. He wanted to build a barn

:15:35.:15:36.

that he was told it wasn't He says it's not fair

:15:37.:15:40.

he can't have his barn, but the Peak District can

:15:41.:15:44.

have their caravan site. I'm afraid you won't put it on telly

:15:45.:15:46.

what I think about it. My barn is roughly 300-400 metres

:15:47.:15:53.

away from their caravan site Well, I think they should throw

:15:54.:15:57.

the caravan site out. The wording of the original planning

:15:58.:16:05.

application was wrong. It meant that private developers

:16:06.:16:08.

could put permanent static caravans on the site and that's why

:16:09.:16:11.

the Peak Park spent ?650,000 This new development would only be

:16:12.:16:15.

for mobile caravans. The Peak Park Authority says it has

:16:16.:16:22.

a duty to recover as much of that purchase price as possible

:16:23.:16:26.

and reverting it back to a green To reclaim the money spent

:16:27.:16:29.

on stopping caravans, We will keep you posted on how that

:16:30.:16:43.

argument develops as well. Could birds of prey help scare some

:16:44.:17:00.

of Scarborough's seagulls away and stop them swooping in to steal

:17:01.:17:03.

food from visitors hands? It's one of the ideas being looked

:17:04.:17:05.

at to tackle the town's growing Today the council's been debating

:17:06.:17:08.

whether to bring in a firm to remove some of the nests and use a hawk

:17:09.:17:12.

to move the gulls elsewhere. Seagulls and Scarborough just go

:17:13.:17:16.

together, but in recent years the relationship has been

:17:17.:17:19.

turning slightly sour. The number of birds in this town has

:17:20.:17:23.

grown to a few thousand, and especially in the summer,

:17:24.:17:27.

it's claimed they are I've seen them actually take food

:17:28.:17:32.

out of people's hands and things like that and for children it can be

:17:33.:17:36.

quite scary, can't it? People are feeding them as well,

:17:37.:17:39.

they are feeding them titbits. And they shouldn't do,

:17:40.:17:42.

they should not encourage them I think one or two people

:17:43.:17:45.

are complaining too I have seen them swoop down and take

:17:46.:17:50.

food out of a child's hand, but I don't think it's

:17:51.:17:55.

all of the gulls. Today the council has

:17:56.:18:00.

been discussing what Councillors could decide to hire

:18:01.:18:02.

a firm to work on reducing the number of birds over

:18:03.:18:06.

the next few years. We would use egg and nest removal

:18:07.:18:11.

and that is not removing all eggs and all nests,

:18:12.:18:14.

it is removing a percentage. We worked with Natural England

:18:15.:18:18.

on that to say this is how many we are going to take

:18:19.:18:21.

and we would report The natural assumption

:18:22.:18:23.

from the bird's point of view that the bird of prey

:18:24.:18:28.

is taking them. We're not going out to kill

:18:29.:18:31.

anything, that's for sure. What the idea is is to move them

:18:32.:18:35.

on and get them maybe into the cliffs of further

:18:36.:18:38.

away from town. Visitors to Scarborough are already

:18:39.:18:43.

urged not to feed the seagulls but some traders say the signs

:18:44.:18:46.

are not working I work down here on the seafront

:18:47.:18:48.

and all of the restaurateurs and the traders, the south bay

:18:49.:18:52.

traders, do try to discuss and speak to members of the public

:18:53.:18:55.

if they are seen feeding the gulls but generally, and sort

:18:56.:18:58.

of understandably, the reaction is go away its not your business,

:18:59.:19:00.

but actually it is our business because we see this

:19:01.:19:04.

happening all the time. It may be winter but as you can see

:19:05.:19:06.

there are still seagulls around. Normally in January you'd expect

:19:07.:19:09.

them to be all out to sea but they are so used to being fed

:19:10.:19:12.

here they're staying on land. If action is going to be taken it

:19:13.:19:15.

will need to happen soon. The seagull mating season

:19:16.:19:22.

is about to begin. I certainly hope they won't BBC

:19:23.:19:34.

chips there at the end! I hope not. For anyone looking for a healthy

:19:44.:19:46.

leading up to the World Series event Yorkshire's one to watch,

:19:47.:19:49.

Leeds local Jess Learmonth is usually found travelling

:19:50.:19:54.

the world on the sporting circuit Her mission, to get Yorkshire

:19:55.:19:57.

to give triathlon a go. If it's only a good thing, isn't it,

:19:58.:20:02.

to get people involved and we have got the World Series coming to Leeds

:20:03.:20:06.

so if people start doing a bit of swimming, a bit of running

:20:07.:20:09.

and getting out on the bike then We have got such a nice roads

:20:10.:20:12.

and great places to ride I love it, so hopefully

:20:13.:20:16.

other people do as well. What is it about

:20:17.:20:21.

Leeds and triathlon? Jess on the international stage,

:20:22.:20:23.

the Brownlees are locals as well and now this scheme is getting more

:20:24.:20:26.

people involved in a sport You usually find once people get

:20:27.:20:29.

started they keep coming We have found extraordinary people

:20:30.:20:34.

come along thinking they could do a triathlon and they were just

:20:35.:20:39.

coming along to learn to swim and by the end of it they have

:20:40.:20:42.

entered into a little mini triathlon and achieved something

:20:43.:20:45.

and the smiles on those people's Jess came tenth and last year's

:20:46.:20:47.

World Triathlon and this year she's hoping to beat that but these

:20:48.:20:52.

sessions aren't just for seasoned More than 1,000 people have signed

:20:53.:20:57.

up, 300 weren't active It's good now, I've only done two

:20:58.:21:00.

sessions but even after the second session it was noticeable

:21:01.:21:05.

the improvement that So if you're looking

:21:06.:21:10.

to kick-start a healthy New Year, why not try three sports

:21:11.:21:15.

for the price of one? You could even be Yorkshire's

:21:16.:21:17.

new sporting star. Earlier this week we reported on the

:21:18.:21:37.

possible demise of the Futurist Theatre.

:21:38.:21:39.

Plans have been revealed to coax more big stars to Scarborough

:21:40.:21:41.

with an increase in concerts at the town's open air theatre.

:21:42.:21:44.

Councillors are being asked to approve plans to nearly double

:21:45.:21:46.

the number of concert dates for 2017.

:21:47.:21:48.

The concert promoters say it'll give the local

:21:49.:21:50.

It is not Las Vegas or New York, it is not even London, but Scarborough.

:21:51.:22:03.

Playing host to big names last summer in the open-air theatre. Six

:22:04.:22:07.

and a half thousand seats mean it is the biggest in Europe and it hosted

:22:08.:22:13.

ten concerts in 2016. They went so well the promoters now want to

:22:14.:22:19.

schedule nearly double that, 18 in 2017. We saw the opportunity that

:22:20.:22:22.

actually artists do want to come here. In terms of the geography of

:22:23.:22:26.

the country it's a great location, that isn't tapped into, and with

:22:27.:22:38.

such a great venue. Looking at it with the council, we are saying that

:22:39.:22:41.

we have done really well with ten or 11 shows and almost all of them have

:22:42.:22:44.

been sold out, there is an appetite there. Ten years ago the theatre was

:22:45.:22:47.

the sorry state, it had been closed for decades and lay abandoned and

:22:48.:22:49.

unused. It was reopened by the Queen in 2010 with high hopes, but they

:22:50.:22:53.

have taken a while to be realised. The theatre reopened in the teeth of

:22:54.:22:56.

the recession and the going in the early years was really tough, but

:22:57.:23:01.

the extra dates nearly double the business here. It's a real sign of

:23:02.:23:06.

hope. And money. It is estimated the concerts will give a ?5 million

:23:07.:23:17.

boost to the local economy. It is absolutely fantastic news. 2016

:23:18.:23:19.

shows attracted in excess of 50,000 people to the venue which equated to

:23:20.:23:22.

around ?2.5 million to the local economy so having additional shows

:23:23.:23:26.

is absolutely fantastic news. It could be a return to the glory days

:23:27.:23:31.

of the 1930s when the theatre played a central part in Scarborough 's

:23:32.:23:36.

prosperity. The crowds then like to lavish musicals. These days it is

:23:37.:23:40.

the likes of the Beach boys, Cliff Richard and Olly Murs that will

:23:41.:23:44.

bring in the crowd. If councillors backed the proposal for more dates,

:23:45.:23:48.

expect more announcements from stars that they are also adding

:23:49.:23:54.

Scarborough to that was. -- to their tours.

:23:55.:24:00.

Wright, Paul Hudson, get it right. As always! Sheffield was the

:24:01.:24:08.

windiest place in the entire country. Look at this sea foam that

:24:09.:24:13.

developed in Whitby. This is an incredible picture.

:24:14.:24:23.

If you have any pictures send the mint for me. These were the wind

:24:24.:24:30.

speeds today. They will gradually moderate and tomorrow we're looking

:24:31.:24:34.

at wintry showers and a cold day with sunshine. Let us look that this

:24:35.:24:41.

feature could stay to the south of us and we will hopefully be left

:24:42.:24:45.

with a wintry showers and some sunshine. But look at these isobars

:24:46.:24:49.

with the storm force winds coinciding with high tide times on

:24:50.:24:53.

Friday morning which could be cause for concern in coastal areas. The

:24:54.:24:57.

Environment Agency echidna eye on that. On the satellite picture we

:24:58.:25:01.

have showers coming in from the West, mainly of rain at the moment.

:25:02.:25:05.

They will turn increasingly to sleet and snow so don't be surprised if by

:25:06.:25:11.

the end of the night there was a covering of snow by some and nine

:25:12.:25:15.

areas. Further east just a few showers and icy patches on untreated

:25:16.:25:21.

surfaces. The this is the next high water times. A dry and bright start

:25:22.:25:29.

in eastern areas with some sunshine. Showers of hail and rain and sleet

:25:30.:25:34.

and snow from the word go across the Pennines and if you get further east

:25:35.:25:39.

so as you can see it might be a covering of snow in places.

:25:40.:25:43.

Unpleasant conditions for a time on the Pennines. A lot of sunshine and

:25:44.:25:47.

a cold feeling day. It will be less windy. Looking a bit further ahead

:25:48.:25:56.

it is the coast at around 6am on Friday that there is concern and

:25:57.:26:00.

there could be coastal flooding. Sunny inland and wintry showers and

:26:01.:26:04.

the weekend looks cold with scattered showers and rain and hail

:26:05.:26:08.

and sleet and snow so it stays cold and that is the forecast.

:26:09.:26:13.

Stay safe if you're on the roads tonight with the wind. That is

:26:14.:26:33.

I think my political beliefs are really quite straightforward.

:26:34.:26:37.

I believe that our country needs to work for everyone.

:26:38.:26:40.

Not just for the rich, not just for the privileged,

:26:41.:26:42.

not just for those who know the right people or who've got

:26:43.:26:45.

the loudest voices, but a country that really works for everyone,

:26:46.:26:49.
