Good evening, welcome to Friday's Look North.

:00:00.:00:00.

The growing pressure for beds in Yorkshire's hospitals.

:00:00.:00:10.

With most trusts operating at near full capacity,

:00:11.:00:12.

we speak to one patient who was asked to sleep

:00:13.:00:14.

Fear, panic, I just can believe what they were asking me, then tears came

:00:15.:00:24.

because I was very upset. Tonight the trust has said sorry

:00:25.:00:26.

for its "inappropriate" actions. Also tonight: Stop in

:00:27.:00:29.

the name of the Lord - York Minster Police Force

:00:30.:00:31.

about to get the power of arrest. Switching off - the schoolchildren

:00:32.:00:34.

banned from using any devices for a week in

:00:35.:00:37.

the classroom or at home. Riding high - Sheffield gears up

:00:38.:00:40.

for the Arenacross championships with the very best racers descending

:00:41.:00:43.

on the city. And the cold weather looks set to

:00:44.:00:56.

continue over the weekend with a warning for snow overnight and into

:00:57.:01:00.

tomorrow. I'll be back with all the details later.

:01:01.:01:10.

But first tonight, to the story of a woman rushed to hospital

:01:11.:01:13.

in an emergency ambulance to wait ten hours on a trolley before

:01:14.:01:16.

being admitted to a ward and who was then asked to sleep

:01:17.:01:19.

Lynne Dexter from Seacroft in Leeds has asthma and became

:01:20.:01:23.

She's now made an official complaint against St James' Hospital.

:01:24.:01:30.

It comes as figures released today show the pressure is increasing

:01:31.:01:33.

Hospitals aim for bed occupancy rates no higher than 85%,

:01:34.:01:37.

otherwise bed shortages can become regular and patients can be

:01:38.:01:40.

Today's figures show that at the end of last week,

:01:41.:01:51.

five of our 12 trusts exceeded 98% bed occupancy levels

:01:52.:01:55.

with Mid-Yorkshire topping the list at a critical 99.6%.

:01:56.:01:59.

As we reported on Monday, 11 of our 12 trusts

:02:00.:02:01.

Calderdale and Huddersfield has seen the biggest drop

:02:02.:02:07.

compared to the week before, but even they are at 86%.

:02:08.:02:10.

Leeds Teaching Hospitals, which includes St James', were at 98.7%.

:02:11.:02:18.

An increase of 2% on the previous week.

:02:19.:02:20.

Our correspondent Spencer Stokes went to meet the patient asked

:02:21.:02:22.

a private room in hospital, but not the sort patients might expect. On

:02:23.:02:41.

Wednesday night, 16-year-old Lynne Dexter from Leeds would ask -- was

:02:42.:02:46.

asked if she would made her bed being wheeled into a shower room at

:02:47.:02:53.

St James 's Hospital -- 61-year-old. I just started crying and I said no,

:02:54.:02:57.

sorry, I know you're under stress but the answer is no and I couldn't

:02:58.:03:05.

stop crying. Lynne said the ward was full, people were sleeping in the

:03:06.:03:08.

corridor and a shower room was the last bit of space but no place to

:03:09.:03:11.

put someone with asthma and breathing difficulties. It was damp

:03:12.:03:16.

because someone had had a shower in there that evening. She said it was

:03:17.:03:22.

fully cleaned but once somebody has been in a shower, it's not fully

:03:23.:03:27.

cleaned. in recent weeks, Leeds teaching hospital trust which runs

:03:28.:03:32.

St James 's Hospital has struggled with bed availability. Figures show

:03:33.:03:38.

at the start of this week, as a 1692 beds available, 1671 were occupied,

:03:39.:03:47.

meaning 98.7% were full. Tonight, the trust apologised to Lynne Dexter

:03:48.:03:51.

explaining that it was an extremely busy period and that patients

:03:52.:03:54.

sometimes had to be transferred to what is called a non-bedded area.

:03:55.:04:00.

The trust goes on to say that it does not regard a larger shower area

:04:01.:04:05.

as the right accommodation for a patient and they are sorry that this

:04:06.:04:12.

happened. The shower, according to Lynne, ended up being slept in,

:04:13.:04:17.

turned into a temporary room. I walk up and went to the toilet and there

:04:18.:04:20.

was an old lady in the shower room in a bed and a sister said to me I

:04:21.:04:25.

was bullied into putting her in there so I said it's disgusting,

:04:26.:04:31.

absolutely disgusting. Back at home, Lynne says she has no wish to return

:04:32.:04:35.

to Saint James 's and has made a formal complaint about being asked

:04:36.:04:38.

to sleep in the shower room. Well, earlier I spoke

:04:39.:04:40.

to Nigel Edwards, who's chief executive of the Nuffield Trust,

:04:41.:04:43.

an independent charity which does extensive research into improving

:04:44.:04:45.

the quality of health care I asked him why bed occupancy rates

:04:46.:04:47.

are so high. The level of demand we are seeing

:04:48.:04:57.

in the NHS now is up It seems to go up at about three

:04:58.:05:00.

or 4% every year and has been doing Meanwhile, beds have been closing

:05:01.:05:05.

and in particular the resources in social care have been shrinking

:05:06.:05:10.

so it's harder to get people out at the other end so the whole system

:05:11.:05:14.

builds up and you get high occupancy high occupancy rates,

:05:15.:05:18.

which are not good A review of emergency care has been

:05:19.:05:20.

called for by the health committee. Unfortunately is not one of those

:05:21.:05:26.

problems that has easy answers. We've got to do something

:05:27.:05:32.

about the state of general practice so people can get an appointment

:05:33.:05:41.

on the day they are need it. We need to fix social care so that

:05:42.:05:44.

people can get out at the other end and health services

:05:45.:05:48.

in the community have been run down over

:05:49.:05:51.

the last few years. We hear about winter approaches

:05:52.:05:53.

every year but it's really out of the headlines now,

:05:54.:05:57.

is this the toughest one yet? It looks pretty tough

:05:58.:05:59.

by previous standards. We fortunately been spared a very

:06:00.:06:01.

bad flu epidemic which has made previous years worse,

:06:02.:06:05.

but things are bad and are likely to get worse and there is no

:06:06.:06:08.

immediate solution in sight. How can we make those

:06:09.:06:12.

beds more available? Bring patients into appropriate

:06:13.:06:19.

social care and getting Social care is one of the big

:06:20.:06:21.

problems that hospitals face but the other issue is care at home

:06:22.:06:26.

from NHS staff as well. The sheer volume of patients coming

:06:27.:06:30.

out of the system suggests the level of medical staffing we've got,

:06:31.:06:33.

particularly the front door of the hospital,

:06:34.:06:35.

may need attention as well. The level of work that we are asking

:06:36.:06:38.

people do is probably not So what's the answer,

:06:39.:06:41.

is it funding, is it staff, a new system or a whole

:06:42.:06:47.

new way of working? Funding is certainly important

:06:48.:06:50.

but without the staff, We're good at responding

:06:51.:06:55.

to crises, we need to get A 15-year-old boy has been arrested

:06:56.:07:06.

following a stabbing Police were called to an address at

:07:07.:07:29.

Hare Hills Lane at around 3:42pm this afternoon. They found a

:07:30.:07:34.

16-year-old boy with serious stab injuries. He was taken to Leeds

:07:35.:07:39.

General Infirmary. I can tell you that there is a heavy police

:07:40.:07:43.

presence in the area and local people who we've been talking to say

:07:44.:07:46.

they are very concerned that the stabbing. One eyewitness said he was

:07:47.:07:51.

concerned about the effect on local people, especially coming so soon

:07:52.:07:54.

after the shooting of another teenager just two weeks ago also

:07:55.:08:00.

been Hare Hills The first time, I saw the fear. I saw blood. It was

:08:01.:08:14.

very bad. How do you assess what's happening now? In the last ten

:08:15.:08:20.

minutes, we've seen forensics officers in their white overalls.

:08:21.:08:26.

They have been checking the road down here. A forensics tent has been

:08:27.:08:32.

erected on the street. Officers say there is a heavy police presence in

:08:33.:08:35.

the area which will be there for some time tonight and the police

:08:36.:08:41.

cordon stretches for 500 metres so quite extensive and a number of side

:08:42.:08:45.

streets are also sealed off well investigations continue. We expect

:08:46.:08:50.

that to last well into the evening and there are extensive diversions

:08:51.:08:53.

in place. During rush hour there was gridlock in some parts of the city

:08:54.:08:57.

as a result of what is going on here tonight.

:08:58.:09:00.

Later on Look North: Coughing up for coffee.

:09:01.:09:01.

I'm at a new barista school in Leeds where you can

:09:02.:09:05.

learn how to turn your latte from this...

:09:06.:09:07.

Now for the first time in decades York Minster's own police force

:09:08.:09:20.

is being given the same powers of arrest as regular constables

:09:21.:09:23.

within the cathedral and its boundaries.

:09:24.:09:29.

York Minster is one of only five cathedrals in the world

:09:30.:09:32.

which maintain their own constabulary or police force

:09:33.:09:34.

in a tradition which can be traced back to the early 13th century.

:09:35.:09:37.

The Minster police have been on duty a very long time. For more than 700

:09:38.:09:46.

years, they have been guardians of the piece here at York Minster,

:09:47.:09:50.

protecting the building and everyone in it on a daily basis but

:09:51.:09:53.

specialist training from North Yorkshire Police means they will

:09:54.:09:57.

soon hold the same powers of arrest as regular constables. Hull from

:09:58.:10:01.

time to time, perhaps people have a little too much to drink or a bit of

:10:02.:10:05.

disorder that has to be dealt with and we have to be realistic there

:10:06.:10:12.

could be a crime, some police officers are now trained to

:10:13.:10:15.

recognise that and how to deal with it appropriately. Cathedral

:10:16.:10:19.

constables were on the beach before a police force was established in

:10:20.:10:24.

1829. Since the 13th century they have held a vital role in security

:10:25.:10:28.

here at York and other historic cathedrals like Chester and

:10:29.:10:32.

Canterbury. Last year, North Yorkshire Police provided

:10:33.:10:37.

professional training for the eight strong team he led the Minster. I

:10:38.:10:41.

got training so I know what to do and the training build my confidence

:10:42.:10:51.

-- built. I proud of myself. Also my family, they are proud of me. From

:10:52.:10:58.

disruptive visitors to serious criminals, the team are every

:10:59.:11:02.

situation but the central role remains to inform, advise and help

:11:03.:11:05.

the public. I think it's given us the tools to do the job were

:11:06.:11:11.

professionally. Should we encounter a situation, we'll know what to do

:11:12.:11:16.

and we'll have the confidence to carry out those actions. This week,

:11:17.:11:20.

North Yorkshire Police and the Dean of York signed a memorandum to

:11:21.:11:25.

formally recognise the goal of the York Minster police -- role. The new

:11:26.:11:30.

powers will come into force in May. A "posh coffee" is an affordable

:11:31.:11:38.

treat which more and more of us are enjoying every day,

:11:39.:11:41.

and it's big business. In Leeds there are 30% more

:11:42.:11:43.

coffee shops than there And now a new barista school has

:11:44.:11:45.

opened in the city where you can learn to tell your Mocha

:11:46.:11:49.

from your Macchiato. The school at the 200 Degrees coffee

:11:50.:11:51.

shop promises to reveal the secrets There's even a class

:11:52.:11:55.

offering Advanced Latte Art. Coffee houses like this one in

:11:56.:12:10.

Kensington are having a new vogue. The exotic touches create a

:12:11.:12:16.

colourful atmosphere. in 1955, the coffee shop represented the very

:12:17.:12:19.

height of sophistication and they are as popular as ever. The shop in

:12:20.:12:23.

Leeds is taking our love of coffee to the next step, Arista school --

:12:24.:12:34.

barista. Arrest in Italian means barman and it is basically someone

:12:35.:12:39.

who uses these fancy coffee machines -- barista. Rob is going to show me

:12:40.:12:43.

how to make one of these lattes. This is what we're aiming for, the

:12:44.:13:00.

classic leaf in a latte. Show me how we do it. Pour from a hate to mix

:13:01.:13:07.

the espresso and milk and when we are halfway through, drop a great

:13:08.:13:11.

into the cup, give it a wiggle and flick through. It's as simple as

:13:12.:13:24.

that! For the more advanced student, the school teaches how to create

:13:25.:13:29.

frothy masterpieces. It seems Leeds can't get enough coffee. Five years

:13:30.:13:33.

ago, there are 23 coffee shops in the city and now there are 30,

:13:34.:13:40.

that's a lot of latte. Coffee is something that has developed a lead

:13:41.:13:43.

in the past two years, catching up more with the trend of London. Leeds

:13:44.:13:49.

is becoming the London of the north and it is catching up on the

:13:50.:13:53.

restaurant side of things but also now on coffee. the barista school is

:13:54.:14:00.

opened and students are encouraged to put in the hard grind. I would

:14:01.:14:04.

love a cappuccino How would you feel about giving

:14:05.:14:06.

up your mobile phone, tablet, computer and even watching TV

:14:07.:14:10.

for a whole week? That's what Year Six children

:14:11.:14:18.

at Netherthong Primary School For the next seven days electronic

:14:19.:14:22.

devices will be banned at home as well as school,

:14:23.:14:25.

in an effort to prepare For these year six pupils,

:14:26.:14:28.

their electronic devices are an important part

:14:29.:14:32.

of their lives, not just at home, But could a week-long screen

:14:33.:14:35.

break help their ability The teacher thinks so and has asked

:14:36.:14:41.

them all to give up their phones, tablets, computers and even TV

:14:42.:14:49.

for a whole week starting today. How much do you use

:14:50.:14:52.

electronic devices? Well, quite a lot, but mainly just

:14:53.:14:53.

the television, I like to go on it. But you're not going to be able

:14:54.:14:59.

to watch telly any more. My dad came down this morning

:15:00.:15:02.

with a giant box and he's put all my devices and my laptop

:15:03.:15:06.

and everything into it It's a bit worrying because it's

:15:07.:15:09.

like they don't trust me! All of my family are taking

:15:10.:15:17.

part in this and I hope Tonight is movie night for us

:15:18.:15:21.

and they're purposefully saying, Emma, just turn around while we're

:15:22.:15:36.

watching the film and listen. Mr Clayton knows it's a tough ask

:15:37.:15:39.

so has agreed to join in and not use any of his electronic devices

:15:40.:15:49.

for the next week, too. Because when I was at school,

:15:50.:15:52.

we never had things like this. This allows me to teach

:15:53.:15:57.

the children interactively. It's a teaching tool,

:15:58.:16:03.

basically, so I can reach Oh, it's a teaching tool,

:16:04.:16:05.

but it's an electronic Oh, well, I'm afraid,

:16:06.:16:10.

sorry, it's going off. Now, Paddy, I don't

:16:11.:16:14.

think he's listening. Mr Clayton, do you

:16:15.:16:16.

think you can do it? Right, guys, let's turn the room

:16:17.:16:18.

around and face that board. So the challenge is set,

:16:19.:16:39.

the devices are off and next week It's just a shame they won't be able

:16:40.:16:42.

to watch themselves on TV tonight. And we'll find out how they get

:16:43.:16:48.

on next Friday here on Look North. Now for some sport and the best

for the British Indoor They'll also have a chance to grab

:17:01.:17:07.

a place on the GB Team for the European titles

:17:08.:17:11.

in Belgrade next month. Amongst them in Belgrade -

:17:12.:17:13.

we hope - will be two pole vaulters from opposite ends

and are equally proud to pull I do a lot of spot, cricket,

I'm a good goalkeeper, swimming, and one day when I was 11,

off last night with a narrow In a tough, tense opener

:19:15.:19:28.

at St Helens, Rhinos scored first, when Joel Moon powered over

:19:29.:19:32.

for an unconverted try. And it stayed 4-0 to

:19:33.:19:36.

Leeds until the break. But they couldn't keep Saints'

up deciding the match, six points If you're into your extreme sports,

:19:42.:19:47.

can we suggest a trip The Arenacross Championships

:19:48.:19:52.

are in town showcasing the very best in racing and there's free styling

:19:53.:19:56.

to marvel at as well! Take one arena, 2,500 tonnes of sand

:19:57.:20:02.

and a few diggers and you're Ten-year-old Edlington cousins

:20:03.:20:05.

Harvey Shaw and Kieran Knowles will be up against each other

:20:06.:20:23.

in the junior races. When we get onto a track,

:20:24.:20:26.

it's more technical than other tracks because there's

:20:27.:20:31.

jump after jump. Pretend everybody's not here,

:20:32.:20:36.

pretend it's still daytime, just do In between the racing tomorrow

:20:37.:20:38.

night, you get the freestylers. I guess when you see the crowd,

:20:39.:20:56.

you know how they respond and it is a good idea but most

:20:57.:20:59.

of the time you wonder why. I have a passion for riding bikes

:21:00.:21:02.

and I've raced from a young age and freestyle hit me and it's just

:21:03.:21:09.

a feeling within me that I can't You get a feeling of weightlessness

:21:10.:21:13.

and it's over so quick, you have to get it in your head

:21:14.:21:19.

before it happens because it happens so quick and you don't

:21:20.:21:22.

really think anything, Sometimes it doesn't happen,

:21:23.:21:24.

we crash, but that's part part of the sport, it's

:21:25.:21:29.

the risk you take. When you see the freestyle

:21:30.:21:31.

guys, what do you think? I always think they're going to land

:21:32.:21:33.

on each other because they must be putting a lot of

:21:34.:21:37.

trust in each other. I'll probably accidentally

:21:38.:21:39.

knock him off. My dad took me to my first show

:21:40.:21:50.

when I was eight or nine and that's where the bug came from and the buzz

:21:51.:22:00.

from this place when it's full is wild and it's

:22:01.:22:02.

the best round on the tour for me. The freestylers are amazing,

:22:03.:22:06.

but the real competition When you're racing against each

:22:07.:22:09.

other, what's it like? When you're not trying

:22:10.:22:13.

to take me out! Out of the two of you,

:22:14.:22:16.

who's going to win? Finally tonight, musicals can be

of school while you can. Wintry weather this weekend, some

:24:46.:25:07.

snow maybe tonight into tomorrow and Saturday night into Sunday saw a

:25:08.:25:10.

warning for tonight for the North York Moors and Pennines of around

:25:11.:25:15.

200 metres and a few centimetres of snow. A mix of rain, sleet and snow,

:25:16.:25:22.

some slush on lower levels but mainly above and then we do it again

:25:23.:25:29.

Saturday night into Sunday. At the moment, a lot of cloud, some wintry

:25:30.:25:34.

showers and overnight they become more frequent and heavy, a mix of

:25:35.:25:38.

rain, sleet and snow so some slushy deposits down to lower levels but

:25:39.:25:42.

it's mainly higher ground and 200 metres is not that high although we

:25:43.:25:48.

could get a few centimetres more and they will be some slippery surfaces

:25:49.:25:52.

into tomorrow, a cognate with temperatures at around freezing. The

:25:53.:25:58.

sun will rise at around 7:30am and set at 5pm. A similar story for the

first few hours of tomorrow, showers, rain, sleet and snow but

:26:08.:26:10.

through the day, most of the snow will be confined to higher ground.

:26:11.:26:19.

It will be a cold, grey day with temperatures are little bit higher

:26:20.:26:22.

than they have been today but I think it will feel just as cold

:26:23.:26:27.

around three to five Celsius. Overnight into Sunday, similar

:26:28.:26:36.

conditions like tonight, so early as -- areas might get snow, slushy

:26:37.:26:43.

deposits on lower levels. It will be the same because the feature are

:26:44.:26:50.

showery sort will be hit and miss weather you get snow. Any snow

becomes confined to the highest ground on Saturday. It will remain

:26:57.:27:02.

cold into next week but not quite as cold but with a breeze picking up,

bright Monday into Tuesday. Enjoy your weekend. We'll see you

later. Bye-bye.
