Welcome to Friday's Look North. There is continuing coverages of the

They phoned us and said, your grandson's in the infirmary.

:00:11.:00:19.

I went down there and sat there until he died.

:00:20.:00:21.

Also tonight: Held to ransom - the flood-hit residents in a block

:00:22.:00:27.

of flats who say their home insurance has gone up to more

:00:28.:00:29.

We talk to Masters champion Danny Willett as he takes time out

:00:30.:00:36.

to encourage the young golfers of the future.

:00:37.:00:41.

And a new challenge for the cancer survivor who's given herself just

:00:42.:00:44.

five months to learn how to be a jockey.

:00:45.:00:47.

And it's been a grey, cold day today once again,

:00:48.:00:50.

as you can see from this picture taken this morning in Bingley.

:00:51.:00:53.

It is going to be brighter eventually tomorrow,

:00:54.:00:55.

I will be back later in the programme with all the details.

:00:56.:01:09.

A man's in custody after the teenage brother of a young Leeds United

:01:10.:01:12.

Raheem Wilks, who was 19, was found fatally wounded outside

:01:13.:01:19.

Police say a murder inquiry is underway and are holding

:01:20.:01:23.

a 49-year-old man in connection with the incident.

:01:24.:01:26.

Phil Bodmer has tonight's main story.

:01:27.:01:30.

Well, police were called to this street in Harehills just after 1.20

:01:31.:01:33.

They found a man with serious injuries.

:01:34.:01:38.

He was taken to hospital but later died.

:01:39.:01:41.

Throughout today, this area has remained sealed off,

:01:42.:01:44.

as inquiries into what happened here get underway.

:01:45.:01:48.

Crime scene investigators at Gathorne Terrace

:01:49.:01:50.

A white police tent at the entrance to a barbershop where

:01:51.:01:56.

a 19-year-old man was fatally shot yesterday lunchtime.

:01:57.:02:01.

The victim was named locally as Raheem Wilks,

:02:02.:02:03.

older brother of Leeds United under-23 player Malik Wilks.

:02:04.:02:07.

Today, Mr Wilks's grandparents paid tribute to the teenager.

:02:08.:02:11.

Everybody, yeah, everybody loves him.

:02:12.:02:18.

I was the last person to see him go out, and it really hurt me

:02:19.:02:22.

There are many questions to be answered now...

:02:23.:02:25.

Throughout the day, friends and relatives laid flowers

:02:26.:02:30.

One message read simply, to daddy, you were taking too soon.

:02:31.:02:37.

Well, police say that although their enquiries

:02:38.:02:40.

are at an early stage, they believe the victim

:02:41.:02:42.

As a result, they are increasing patrols in the area

:02:43.:02:46.

Police say a 49-year-old man is being held on suspicion of murder.

:02:47.:02:52.

At his weekly press call, the Leeds United manager said

:02:53.:02:55.

that the club will offer support to Raheem 's brother Malik,

:02:56.:03:00.

who is in the squad for this weekend's FA Cup game against

:03:01.:03:03.

My job is to focus on supporting him and how he feels and how he is,

:03:04.:03:08.

and we are giving him the best support possible, and

:03:09.:03:10.

That's what we are as a club, as the staff, and as everyone

:03:11.:03:14.

Specially trained liaison officers are now supporting the victim's

:03:15.:03:24.

family at this difficult time. Police say they understand what

:03:25.:03:27.

happened here will cause concern within the community. More flowers

:03:28.:03:30.

were laid at the scene tonight and additional neighbourhood policing

:03:31.:03:33.

teams will be on the street to provide reassurance to local people.

:03:34.:03:39.

We are awaiting the results of a postmortem into of death but tonight

:03:40.:03:43.

West Yorkshire Police say they want to hear from anyone who may have

:03:44.:03:46.

been in the area yesterday witnessed anything, or indeed who may have

:03:47.:03:51.

information about what happened. Get in touch and help them with the

:03:52.:03:52.

investigation. People living in a block of flats

:03:53.:03:54.

say they feel "held to ransom" after their flood insurance shot up

:03:55.:03:57.

to more than ?26,000 a year. The insurance is split between 12

:03:58.:04:00.

flats in Topcliffe near Thirsk that were badly flooded

:04:01.:04:02.

in September 2012. Residents say they can't even move

:04:03.:04:05.

out unless they're prepared to sell the flats for much less

:04:06.:04:08.

than they're worth. Topcliffe mill back in 2012, a year

:04:09.:04:23.

that many people here want to forget. More than four years on, and

:04:24.:04:26.

the flood water may have disappeared but the people living here are still

:04:27.:04:31.

paying the price. It is a high price. Back then, the insurance was

:04:32.:04:36.

?1500 per year and now it is more than ?26,000.

:04:37.:04:41.

So it was all throughout all of the flat.

:04:42.:04:45.

For residents like Ruth, the service charge on their homes is around ?400

:04:46.:04:48.

per month. It is like another mortgage every

:04:49.:04:52.

month, basically. People are struggling and we are all

:04:53.:04:57.

struggling. We are 12 normal homeowners who have unfortunately

:04:58.:04:59.

been in this position where we have been flooded, but we are still

:05:00.:05:03.

paying the price. Back in September 2012, this entire

:05:04.:05:07.

area was completely underwater, but a lot of people that were affected

:05:08.:05:11.

by flooding are protected under a Government scheme which keeps

:05:12.:05:14.

insurance low. Because the people living here are leaseholders rather

:05:15.:05:17.

than freeholders, they are not protected in the same way. But it is

:05:18.:05:23.

not just the monthly cost. Martin lives a few doors down on what

:05:24.:05:27.

bothers him most is the ?75,000 insurance access they will have to

:05:28.:05:30.

pay if this home is damaged. It is unsustainable. Not only as a

:05:31.:05:36.

premium being extremely high, but with the level of the access, it

:05:37.:05:45.

makes the policy value less. It is frustrating and demoralising and we

:05:46.:05:51.

all dread that this time of year. Our buildings need flood insurance.

:05:52.:05:56.

The local MP says this is a top priority of his.

:05:57.:05:59.

The scheme obviously has not worked, so we must go through the process

:06:00.:06:02.

again. We need to meet with the Secretary of State again, I

:06:03.:06:05.

requested an interview with Andrea Leadsom, and we need to meet with

:06:06.:06:10.

insurance companies again. We need to find networks and find a

:06:11.:06:13.

solution. British insurance brokers

:06:14.:06:15.

Association says they are launching a scheme to help leaseholders get

:06:16.:06:20.

cover. In the meantime, people like Ruth and Martin are wondering how

:06:21.:06:24.

they will manage to pay this year's insurance, more than four years

:06:25.:06:25.

since their homes were flooded. Graeme Trudgill is from the British

:06:26.:06:27.

Insurance Brokers' Association. I asked him why the Flood Re scheme

:06:28.:06:29.

doesn't help leaseholders. When the Government were deciding

:06:30.:06:35.

where to draw the line about what is and is not covered,

:06:36.:06:38.

they decided that domestic property owners are in,

:06:39.:06:40.

but commercial property And they have drawn

:06:41.:06:42.

the line where there are basically three flats -

:06:43.:06:46.

that's the limit. If it's more than that,

:06:47.:06:49.

then it's not in Flood Re. The reason they decided

:06:50.:06:54.

upon that is because they felt that there was not a systemic issue

:06:55.:06:57.

across the UK for commercial risks. They felt that they couldn't

:06:58.:07:00.

intervene with state aid, because state aid rules

:07:01.:07:04.

on commercial risks. So that was their decision,

:07:05.:07:06.

unfortunately. OK, so, in these circumstances,

:07:07.:07:07.

then, obviously where there are more than three flats,

:07:08.:07:11.

what do people do? Well, they are again

:07:12.:07:14.

looking in the open market, so the British Insurance Brokers'

:07:15.:07:18.

Association is doing everything we can with our insurance brokers

:07:19.:07:21.

to help people access insurance. And if they have taken resilience

:07:22.:07:25.

measures out in their property, and if they have basically got hard

:07:26.:07:28.

floors now, and moved the electrical points up the wall,

:07:29.:07:32.

and perhaps they have got some door shields and things like that,

:07:33.:07:35.

that could make a big difference to the acceptability

:07:36.:07:37.

to the insurance industry and the British Insurance Brokers'

:07:38.:07:39.

Association has put a new scheme together for commercial properties,

:07:40.:07:42.

where we are doing our very best to try to use those resilience

:07:43.:07:46.

measures using the latest mapping technology as well

:07:47.:07:49.

to try to get them insurance. Is this a sign that the insurance

:07:50.:07:54.

industry is not doing enough to help, and that there are perhaps

:07:55.:07:57.

some blank spots? I think the insurance

:07:58.:08:01.

industry is very aware We are certainly doing

:08:02.:08:03.

all that we can. It's very difficult,

:08:04.:08:11.

cos insurance is for the unexpected, so if you're in a property

:08:12.:08:13.

by a river that's flooded on a regular basis, it's very

:08:14.:08:15.

difficult to ensure that. But if we work with

:08:16.:08:18.

the Environment Agency and we look at the work they are doing,

:08:19.:08:23.

and with the property owner, what resilience they can build

:08:24.:08:26.

into their property, then it is possible for us

:08:27.:08:28.

to work with the market We've had quite a good bit

:08:29.:08:30.

of success since we've launched this new facility in the last few weeks,

:08:31.:08:35.

so please work with us Also to say that there are grants

:08:36.:08:38.

still available from the Government up until March time -

:08:39.:08:42.

if you were flooded by storms Desmond, Eva, or Frank,

:08:43.:08:45.

there is money available to build in this resilience which can then

:08:46.:08:47.

make you more easily insurable. Graeme Trudgill,

with a little help from his wife - and a Ryder Cup place.

:18:43.:18:46.

It was great to see Danny last night at one of his old haunts,

:18:47.:18:51.

the wonderful Sitwell Park Golf Club in Rotherham.

:18:52.:18:53.

It was all to do with his golf initiative called Wee Willetts

:18:54.:18:56.

for the youngsters trying to get into the game.

:18:57.:19:02.

It's good that one of the nice guys of sports got to

:19:03.:19:05.

But he's quick not to forget his roots.

:19:06.:19:15.

A packed golf club in Rotherham, and his Wee Willetts golf initiative

:19:16.:19:19.

Look at the faces of pride on these young fellas,

:19:20.:19:25.

We are just trying to get local kids from local areas to golf courses

:19:26.:19:33.

You know, obviously, as a junior or as a men's amateur,

:19:34.:19:37.

playing in obviously the scratch team and stuff.

:19:38.:19:39.

You know, they've got a great little system in the six-week colleges

:19:40.:19:42.

where kids of any age, ranging from as small

:19:43.:19:44.

as they want to be up to 16 or 17, you know, can actually play these

:19:45.:19:48.

little miniature tournaments, and it is just to see if anyone that

:19:49.:19:51.

might not have ordinarily wanted to actually takes it

:19:52.:19:53.

Danny is now in full training for the new season,

:19:54.:20:05.

I think it's good to still look back and, kind of, relive what you did,

:20:06.:20:13.

and look back and applaud yourself, I guess, for your achievements.

:20:14.:20:16.

But you've got to move on, obviously, cos you've got to keep

:20:17.:20:19.

trying to get better and keep improving.

:20:20.:20:21.

You know, after all this, it was a bit of a whirlwind

:20:22.:20:24.

of everything that went on, and the game slumped a little bit,

:20:25.:20:27.

but we've been training really hard and working really hard,

:20:28.:20:31.

and we've not quite seen the results of that yet,

:20:32.:20:34.

but I'm a firm believer that if you keep working hard and stuff,

:20:35.:20:37.

and doing the right things, then things can very

:20:38.:20:39.

Danny will be embarking on nonstop golf around the world fairly soon.

:20:40.:20:45.

But this shot is sure to be one he will treasure.

:20:46.:20:49.

But who will ever forget this moment?

:20:50.:20:51.

The chat with his wife on the telephone after he'd won

:20:52.:20:54.

at Augusta, with a new born baby waiting there as well.

:20:55.:20:59.

It is lovely to see you giving so much back to the game.

:21:00.:21:02.

Good luck. I'll see you, Danny.

:21:03.:21:03.

Great to see the faces of the kids getting medals. It was a wonderful

:21:04.:21:13.

night. Now, Joanne Ford knows

:21:14.:21:14.

all about facing challenges. She's a mother of two from Bedale,

:21:15.:21:16.

who was diagnosed with cervical cancer 20 years ago,

:21:17.:21:19.

and more recently had major surgery to rebuild part of her spine

after a riding accident. Despite all that, she's now training

Saturday morning. I struggled to walk down

:22:12.:22:17.

the stairs forwards, and now, two or three weeks in,

:22:18.:22:19.

it's really sunk in how fit these people are and how

:22:20.:22:22.

fit you need to be. I need the experience

:22:23.:22:24.

and I need to learn. It's very different from any riding

:22:25.:22:27.

I've ever done before. Some of these horses

are worth six figures, and Jo has to pass a jockey test

BBC Look North, Richmond. All be very best to her. We will

:23:58.:24:05.

keep you posted. Good luck to her. Now let's take a look

:24:06.:24:09.

at the weather. Has the cold weather finally

:24:10.:24:16.

disappeared? It is disappearing, yes. Not

:24:17.:24:22.

tonight,... But yes, it will start milder and pushing from the south.

:24:23.:24:26.

You will not it by tomorrow, temperatures a few degrees above

:24:27.:24:30.

what they have been, but still six or seven Celsius. We would like it

:24:31.:24:34.

warmer than that, though. The photographs, the first one sums up

:24:35.:24:38.

most of the mornings this week. Misty and frosty. The second picture

was taken this morning before that Kyle reached the top of the hill.

taken this morning. Keep your pictures coming in. You can tweak me

:24:55.:25:03.

or send your pictures and. It will get less cold over the week, and by

:25:04.:25:10.

next week, the gays could be in double figures. It will feel

:25:11.:25:14.

different then. Tomorrow, with less cold air, coming with some cloud and

:25:15.:25:17.

rain. Arriving overnight, but it will linger for a time to tomorrow.

:25:18.:25:22.

Particularly the cloud. At rain opens the door for Atlantic

water, but also unsettled with several areas of low pressure

:25:30.:25:32.

heading in our direction over the next few days until next week as

well. Some of us had some sunshine to this morning, but a lot of cloud

:25:37.:25:40.

in general, and a bit of missed out there at the moment. Gradually the

:25:41.:25:43.

receiving, we will start to see epics of rain and drizzle sped up

:25:44.:25:47.

from the south, and after that first spell, further spells from the West.

:25:48.:25:51.

More cloud means not as cold as last night, with temperatures down to

:25:52.:25:57.

around two Celsius. So, the sun will rise in the morning at around 8am.

:25:58.:26:04.

It AM on the nose, setting at 4:39pm. These are the high waters.

:26:05.:26:09.

Start the morning with a lot of cloud. Not as bitingly cold as it

:26:10.:26:14.

has been but a lot of cloud. Outbreaks of rain and drizzle is not

:26:15.:26:18.

pleasant through the morning. An improvement but a slow improvement

:26:19.:26:20.

through the day, with more in the way of dry weather. Hopeful that

:26:21.:26:24.

cloud will start to break before Sunset, some parts of west Yorkshire

:26:25.:26:28.

and the Dales and the Peak District could see brightness before the end

:26:29.:26:32.

of the day. Generally a lot of cloud tomorrow. Even though temperatures

:26:33.:26:36.

will be higher, it could feel disappointing. Nevertheless, getting

:26:37.:26:40.

up to around six or seven Celsius. Looking further into Sunday, quite a

:26:41.:26:45.

lot of uncertainty in the forecast on Sunday. An area of rain affects

:26:46.:26:50.

the UK, we would like to keep in touch with the forecast, because it

:26:51.:26:53.

could change. We'll start with a decent start but hiding over with

:26:54.:26:57.

rain spreading of the south and west. At the moment, looking set to

affect South Yorkshire, but could change. Milder into next

affect South Yorkshire, but could change. Milder into next week.
