Good evening and welcome to Friday's Look North.

:00:08.:00:09.

On the programme tonight - a young woman with incurable cancer

:00:10.:00:12.

urges others to have smear tests, as figures reveal a drop

:00:13.:00:14.

in the numbers being checked in Yorkshire.

:00:15.:00:16.

Even if four or five people off the back of it go

:00:17.:00:19.

and have the smear then that is hopefully doing something.

:00:20.:00:23.

We'll speak to campaigners about what's stopping women

:00:24.:00:25.

Warnings from police after a spate of car thefts targeting

:00:26.:00:30.

the farmers' favourite - the Landrover defender.

:00:31.:00:35.

Leeds Olympic medallist Nile Wilson will be here to tell

:00:36.:00:37.

us how he's recovering after this horrible injury.

:00:38.:00:46.

And they work of one of the world's most famous artist goes on display

:00:47.:00:53.

in Barnsley. After a sunny end to the day we're expecting a frosty

:00:54.:00:58.

night bus in places. At the back later with all the details.

:00:59.:01:07.

First tonight, the worrying fall in the number of women

:01:08.:01:10.

in Yorkshire attending cervical cancer screenings.

:01:11.:01:13.

Despite high profile NHS campaigns, more than a quarter of young women

:01:14.:01:16.

in the region still aren't getting checked.

:01:17.:01:19.

When reality TV star Jade Goody was diagnosed

:01:20.:01:21.

with the disease in 2008, her campaigning saw the number

:01:22.:01:25.

of women attending for smear tests briefly rise.

:01:26.:01:27.

But since then, the trend has been in the other direction,

:01:28.:01:30.

with the number of women being screened falling

:01:31.:01:32.

In 2009/10, 76% of women in Yorkshire aged 25

:01:33.:01:39.

But six years later that had fallen to 73.4%.

:01:40.:01:46.

It's even worse in Bradford, where the percentage of those

:01:47.:01:49.

in the age group getting screened is just 68.

:01:50.:01:54.

Ali Fortescue has been to meet one woman with incurable cervical cancer

:01:55.:01:59.

who's campaigning to make more women aware of the dangers.

:02:00.:02:06.

Her family describe her as funny, a party girl just like

:02:07.:02:08.

But right now Liz's 30s aren't panning out as she had expected

:02:09.:02:14.

and this is a family putting on a brave face.

:02:15.:02:18.

She had a smear test when she was 25 but hasn't had one since.

:02:19.:02:22.

Now Liz has been diagnosed with incurable cervical cancer.

:02:23.:02:27.

I have days when I am down, but I just try to keep as positive

:02:28.:02:31.

For me, I am not one that will just sit and just dwell,

:02:32.:02:39.

I have got to keep going as much as I can and do what

:02:40.:02:43.

Women aged between the ages of 25 and 49 should get a smear test

:02:44.:02:48.

Early diagnosis is key and could help prevent up to 75%

:02:49.:02:53.

I think some people think, it is not going to affect me or I am

:02:54.:03:01.

People kind of shy away from the screening but it is

:03:02.:03:08.

I think people build it up in the head and actually

:03:09.:03:13.

when you get the appointment booked, turn up and have it done and I think

:03:14.:03:17.

people will walk away and think, actually that wasn't that bad.

:03:18.:03:20.

But Liz's fighting spirit hasn't failed her now.

:03:21.:03:23.

She is using her story to raise awareness with

:03:24.:03:25.

She will be auctioning a selection of goodies including a signed

:03:26.:03:30.

Kell Brook boxing glove and a Jessica Ennis team GB vest.

:03:31.:03:48.

God-mac if there is anything slightly different with your body go

:03:49.:03:52.

to your GP and get it checked out and have regular smear tests to

:03:53.:03:54.

hopefully avoid anything like this happening to other people.

:03:55.:03:57.

She says if she persuades even one person to take

:03:58.:04:00.

Robert Music is from the charity Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust.

:04:01.:04:09.

I asked him how important smear tests are.

:04:10.:04:17.

Cervical screening is an incredibly important test. It it is estimated

:04:18.:04:25.

to save around 5000 lives every year in the UK. However we are seeing the

:04:26.:04:29.

numbers of women attending screenings fall down year on year.

:04:30.:04:34.

And it is that it is at a 19 year role. It is hugely worrying because

:04:35.:04:38.

the test can take five minutes but that can save a life. It's not an

:04:39.:04:44.

appointment any of us look forward to but it is a quick and painless

:04:45.:04:49.

procedure. Why are people not going forward and getting screened? That

:04:50.:04:57.

is a range of reasons. Research has been commissioned so for younger

:04:58.:05:03.

women it is about embarrassment or worrying it may be paying for our

:05:04.:05:06.

interestingly the feel of the results because they think is a test

:05:07.:05:09.

to find cancer rather than prevent cancer. In the older age group we

:05:10.:05:13.

are seeing numbers drop and relevance as a growing concern

:05:14.:05:18.

really is a younger person's disease or if they have been for a smear

:05:19.:05:22.

test a couple of times it all thick and is imported to carry on going.

:05:23.:05:27.

Boss the number of people being screened and Yorkshire is dropping.

:05:28.:05:30.

As at the same for the rest of the country? Pretty much. Certain parts

:05:31.:05:36.

of the country it is quite markedly lower than the national average.

:05:37.:05:41.

Some it is level slightly above but overall the trend is down. That is

:05:42.:05:47.

very concerning. We are worried that we could potentially see more women

:05:48.:05:51.

are diagnosed with cervical cancer and more women will lose their lives

:05:52.:05:56.

from it. Had we encourage whopping women to get screened? There has to

:05:57.:06:06.

be a focus at each area to think about their communities and be very

:06:07.:06:11.

tag set in terms of what it is to encourage them to attend rather than

:06:12.:06:15.

a simple letter is going to make it work. Secondly it is about

:06:16.:06:20.

accessibility. It is quite hard if you are a working woman at a time

:06:21.:06:24.

off work to attend a screening or to book an appointment at a GP surgery.

:06:25.:06:30.

We would like to see if a woman to be able to be screened at any GP

:06:31.:06:35.

surgery. If there was a surgery near their work they could go there and

:06:36.:06:39.

be screened and have this wonderful life-saving tests done and not worry

:06:40.:06:43.

about it for another five years. That is a key part in something we

:06:44.:06:45.

want to see looked at. Thank you. An 18-year-old man has been charged

like Chris Welsh love lamb. There is always

something to think with. There is a massive second-hand

market for parts, and you can take them apart in hours and they can

then be sold wherever. The last one rolled off the

production line in Birmingham last summer.

:11:33.:11:34.

Production of this particular vehicle has ceased and parts are

:11:35.:11:37.

We know there are gangs operating in Yorkshire

:11:38.:11:40.

particularly looking for

:11:41.:11:41.

this type of vehicle on farms and in rural

:11:42.:11:44.

areas, and our data shows this

:11:45.:11:46.

trend is definitely continuing over 2017.

North Yorkshire Police say several Defenders disappeared over

Meanwhile, Robert has now got himself a replacement.

Unable to afford a valuable Defender, he

Let's move on to sport., Alice Gillian and a New Zealander.

:12:20.:12:29.

"We haven't come half way around the world to muck around" said

:12:30.:12:32.

the new Bradford Bulls co-owner, Graham Lowe today.

:12:33.:12:34.

The former Wigan coach has formed the new club,

:12:35.:12:36.

with former New Zealand Rugby League chairman Andrew Chalmers

:12:37.:12:38.

They announced a new coach and captain, but admitted

:12:39.:12:42.

there was a lot of rebuilding of trust to do given the problems

:12:43.:12:45.

It is like riding a bicycle down a hill backwards,

:12:46.:12:53.

without handlebars and no brakes and having to change both wheels.

:12:54.:12:56.

It might sound impossible but it is all doable.

:12:57.:13:03.

That, according to Andrew Chalmers is the enormity of the task

:13:04.:13:06.

he and Graham Lowe are taking on at the Bradford Bulls.

:13:07.:13:09.

The pair faced the media for the first time today

:13:10.:13:11.

since being named as the people to reform the club.

:13:12.:13:13.

They started by announcing that the former Manly Sea Eagles

:13:14.:13:16.

coach Geoff Toovey would arrive next week to take charge of the team.

:13:17.:13:19.

Certainly a big name for a club in the second tier

:13:20.:13:22.

He's got the experience, the proven record, he's got

:13:23.:13:26.

the talent and he is coming here for the right reasons.

:13:27.:13:30.

He is coming here because he is a rugby league person

:13:31.:13:33.

He is tough as nails, he has got that courage

:13:34.:13:38.

He has a job on his hands to restore the club

:13:39.:13:43.

They led the way when the game switched to the summer months.

:13:44.:13:48.

Crowds rose, silverware flowed but in recent times it

:13:49.:13:50.

Three administrations in five years followed by liquidation this time

:13:51.:13:54.

round means the fans will need some persuading.

:13:55.:13:57.

In this first season there is no season ticket money and very

:13:58.:14:01.

Are you putting your own money in here?

:14:02.:14:06.

Can you tell us how much you are in this for?

:14:07.:14:09.

And have you got the money behind you to get through this first year

:14:10.:14:16.

of two if you don't get those stakeholders immediately?

:14:17.:14:21.

We have had to be fairly conservative, given

:14:22.:14:23.

all the uncertainty but we are comfortable with where it

:14:24.:14:29.

It was perhaps the club's new captain Leon Pryce

:14:30.:14:34.

As a fan first and a Bradfordian, it has been tough.

:14:35.:14:38.

Hopefully as a team and as a player we can start to put things right

:14:39.:14:42.

and start to regain some trust from the community and from

:14:43.:14:45.

We have a lot of wrongs to put right and not to let the game down again.

:14:46.:14:56.

After an historic 2016 where he became the first British

:14:57.:14:59.

gymnast to win an Olympic medal on the high bar when he got

:15:00.:15:02.

the bronze, Leeds Nile Wilson was looking forward to a big year.

:15:03.:15:07.

But during a routine training session on the parallel bars last

:15:08.:15:09.

He immediately knew he'd done something serious to his ankle,

:15:10.:15:15.

You have a large boot on your ankle. Eurogroup for your operation, how

:15:16.:15:35.

long are you out for? I have slapped two ligaments in the outside of my

:15:36.:15:40.

ankle and I have the operation on Monday. It is best to get it fixed

:15:41.:15:43.

from a long-term period and they said at least three or four months.

:15:44.:15:50.

I have said we will go at my place. With technology and the people

:15:51.:15:53.

around me, it is amazing what you can achieve and only ten days after

:15:54.:15:59.

I did that and what I am doing right now it is amazing. Boss it was a

:16:00.:16:04.

freak accident wasn't it? You do that several times a day in the gym

:16:05.:16:09.

but did you know immediately it was serious? I knew straightaway. I

:16:10.:16:17.

think it is a reminder to myself and two gymnasts that you have to

:16:18.:16:21.

respect the sport. A lack of concentration, you can take for

:16:22.:16:24.

granted and maybe I wasn't concentrating. But it is done, my

:16:25.:16:28.

main set is very positive and I know who I want to go sonorously iron

:16:29.:16:32.

that period were you really upset at the new switches back to positive.

:16:33.:16:39.

Have surgery and the end goal is more important than the current

:16:40.:16:43.

obstacle in front of you. 2016 was a massive year for you, you are

:16:44.:16:50.

outstanding in the European Championships. Does that give you

:16:51.:16:55.

that positive and you know know who you want to go? Hundred percent.

:16:56.:17:02.

2016 was incredible but it is a small part of what I can achieve. I

:17:03.:17:08.

want to get back into the gym to progress and I am looking to Tokyo,

:17:09.:17:14.

that'll be my Olympic Games. I have only turned 21 and they have a long

:17:15.:17:18.

career ahead of me in gymnastics. This injury will be forgotten in a

:17:19.:17:26.

year's time and so many sportspeople continue the setbacks that have gone

:17:27.:17:29.

through but you look back on your career and should remember the

:17:30.:17:32.

championships and the Olympics. It is a kink in the road and the main

:17:33.:17:39.

goal is Tokyo. You're talking like you haven't got your fit in a bit.

:17:40.:17:47.

What do you do know training wise? I been able to do quite a lot. I have

:17:48.:17:52.

been doing loads of a body strength of the Day today and it is about

:17:53.:17:57.

taking the opportunity and how can I make gains elsewhere, how can I get

:17:58.:18:00.

stronger on other apparatus without using my legs and I think that is

:18:01.:18:09.

the key. The big one is still the world Championships? That is the

:18:10.:18:13.

goal to give back fighting fit for the level I was and if not beyond

:18:14.:18:19.

that. Don't count me out. I said I am going at my own pace but I am

:18:20.:18:25.

excited and it is an opportunity. It is unfortunate that has happened

:18:26.:18:28.

this early on in the cycle that it could have been January 2016 and no

:18:29.:18:35.

Olympics so let's keep smashing it. Thank you very much good luck. I

:18:36.:18:47.

feel inspired. We wish you a speedy recovery.

:18:48.:18:51.

It was built in 1770 to produce flour for families in York.

:18:52.:18:54.

Now - almost two and a half centuries later -

:18:55.:18:57.

Yorkshire's only working windmill is doing the same again.

:18:58.:18:59.

The team who've restored the mill want to increase

:19:00.:19:03.

their production further - but for that they say more

:19:04.:19:05.

It was once one of hundreds of mills in Yorkshire.

:19:06.:19:11.

Today it is the only one left that is working, found

:19:12.:19:14.

in the middle of Windmill Rise, a residential street in York.

:19:15.:19:17.

Lot's of orders this week so we will have to do some milling.

:19:18.:19:20.

For a small team of volunteers, the windmill has become

:19:21.:19:22.

Before they arrived it was derelict and in 2012 it was restored

:19:23.:19:26.

to its former glory thanks to ten years of hard voluntary work.

:19:27.:19:31.

There were times when we thought we were never going to get that work

:19:32.:19:37.

done in time to get the grant paid and when we get that grant,

:19:38.:19:40.

Yes, there were some real heart in mouth periods during that time.

:19:41.:19:47.

The mill now makes and sells around 30 bags of flour a week.

:19:48.:19:51.

To secure its long-term future, an appeal is being made

:19:52.:19:53.

for more volunteers, a chance to learn skills that

:19:54.:19:57.

have been passed down over hundreds of years.

:19:58.:20:01.

We have done the hard work by getting the mill restored

:20:02.:20:05.

but it is almost harder to keep any decent condition.

:20:06.:20:09.

It is one thing getting the money to do it in the first place

:20:10.:20:14.

but continuing with the income is important from our point of view

:20:15.:20:17.

We would love anybody who has got the time and the physical energy,

:20:18.:20:24.

because it is quite a physical job, to come and get involved.

:20:25.:20:27.

And take over from us older ones are beginning to see the end

:20:28.:20:30.

For anyone interested in volunteering, there is an open

:20:31.:20:35.

weekend at the end of January, a chance to learn something

:20:36.:20:38.

You know you've made it if you're known by just one name -

:20:39.:20:49.

Today the work of one of the most famous artists all of time has

:20:50.:20:56.

arrived in Barnsley - Picasso.

:20:57.:20:59.

17 of his linocut prints will be at the Cooper Gallery

:21:00.:21:02.

James Vincent has been to take a look.

:21:03.:21:13.

Pablo Kassel one of the most famous actors in the world has come to

:21:14.:21:27.

Barnsley. And he did some linocut which you can see behind me. It is a

:21:28.:21:32.

bit of a coup for the Cooper Gallery and I have people who can hopefully

:21:33.:21:38.

tell me more about Picasso. Natalie, this is a huge thing for the museum?

:21:39.:21:43.

It is absolutely fantastic. We're really pleased to be hosting the

:21:44.:21:49.
