An inquest has been told that a gun was found in the footwell of the

:00:11.:00:15.

car seat where a man was shot dead by police near Huddersfield.

:00:16.:00:18.

Yassar Yaqub was killed by a West Yorkshire Police officer

:00:19.:00:20.

on Monday after two vehicles were stopped by the M62.

:00:21.:00:22.

Hundreds of people attended his funeral today, while a man arrested

:00:23.:00:25.

during the operation appeared in court charged

:00:26.:00:27.

A distraught mother saying a final goodbye to her son after he was shot

:00:28.:00:36.

dead in a police operation on Monday night.

:00:37.:00:39.

This morning, hundreds turned out for Yassar Yaqub's funeral

:00:40.:00:41.

at the mosque in the Crossland Moor area of Huddersfield.

:00:42.:00:46.

Yaqub died after police in unmarked cars forced the vehicle

:00:47.:00:49.

he was in to make a sudden stop as it left the M62.

:00:50.:00:54.

He was shot three times through the windscreen.

:00:55.:00:58.

Yaqub was accused and cleared of trying to murder

:00:59.:01:01.

But people at the funeral simply wanted to know more

:01:02.:01:06.

about the circumstances of his death, earlier this week.

:01:07.:01:10.

Them parents have lost their son and them sisters have

:01:11.:01:13.

They all need answers, and I think they need them quick.

:01:14.:01:23.

As far as the gun culture and the criminal activity is concerned,

:01:24.:01:25.

But the question arises of the way this was carried out.

:01:26.:01:31.

In my opinion, it was totally out of order.

:01:32.:01:34.

The question is, the way it was handled.

:01:35.:01:36.

We cannot just go around and shoot people on the spot like this.

:01:37.:01:42.

More detail about the police operation emerged at an inquest

:01:43.:01:45.

which was opened and adjourned in Bradford this morning.

:01:46.:01:48.

The court heard the 28-year-old worked as an office clerk.

:01:49.:01:52.

The cause of death was given as gunshot wounds to the chest.

:01:53.:01:55.

We now know that a gun was recovered from the footwell of the Audi

:01:56.:01:59.

Whilst the inquest and funeral were taking place, a 30-year-old

:02:00.:02:04.

man, arrested as part of the same operation on Monday night,

:02:05.:02:07.

Flanked by two security guards, Moshin Amin spoke only

:02:08.:02:13.

to confirm his name, his address and his date of birth.

:02:14.:02:17.

Amin, of Broomer Street in Dewsbury, is charged with possession

:02:18.:02:20.

of a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence,

:02:21.:02:24.

possession of ammunition and possession of a silencer.

:02:25.:02:28.

The hearing lasted for just four minutes and there was no

:02:29.:02:31.

He'll now appear at Leeds Crown Court on February the 3rd.

:02:32.:02:38.

Details about the planning and the full circumstances of Monday night's

:02:39.:02:40.

That won't happen until the Independent Police

:02:41.:02:45.

Complaints Commission has finished its investigation,

:02:46.:02:50.

a process which the IPCC says it believes will take several months.

:02:51.:03:06.

Bird flu has been confirmed in chickens and ducks

:03:07.:03:08.

A 3km protection zone has now been put in place

:03:09.:03:12.

near Settle to limit the spread of the disease.

:03:13.:03:14.

The affected birds are understood to be a small, backyard flock of 17

:03:15.:03:22.

chickens and ducks. A decision has been made to humanely cull the birds

:03:23.:03:28.

to limit the spread of the H5N8 strain of avian flu. It's the same

:03:29.:03:34.

strain that was found and a flock of birds in Wales and a farm in

:03:35.:03:39.

Lincolnshire earlier this month. A full investigation is underway to

:03:40.:03:41.

find out the source of the infection.

:03:42.:03:44.

A family from Chesterfield have been speaking about their desperation

:03:45.:03:46.

at being told there is no cure for their son, who has a very

:03:47.:03:49.

14-year-old William Huntley suffers with

:03:50.:03:51.

Here's our health correspondent, Jamie Coulson.

:03:52.:03:56.

For William Huntley, going bowling provides

:03:57.:04:00.

The 14-year-old has moderate learning difficulties

:04:01.:04:03.

But he also suffers from a rare and debilitating sleep disorder that

:04:04.:04:09.

Every night, since William was one, he's been banging his head

:04:10.:04:18.

This was him aged just six years old.

:04:19.:04:23.

This footage was taken in the last couple of weeks.

:04:24.:04:27.

The condition is called rhythmic movement disorder,

:04:28.:04:29.

and has led to William and his family

:04:30.:04:31.

surviving on four hours sleep a night.

:04:32.:04:35.

I can't move anything, I'm absolutely shattered.

:04:36.:04:38.

All I want to do all day is just stay in bed.

:04:39.:04:42.

We are extremely tired all of the time.

:04:43.:04:44.

All I want to do sometimes is sit on the settee and cry because I am

:04:45.:04:51.

It has taken the family the best part of 12 years

:04:52.:04:55.

to get a formal diagnosis for William.

:04:56.:04:57.

The family have also been told there is no cure in his case.

:04:58.:05:02.

So they will have to find a way to live with it.

:05:03.:05:06.

When he is in full rhythmic movement, every night,

:05:07.:05:08.

it sounds like someone's throwing a basketball

:05:09.:05:12.

against the wall and keeps the whole family awake.

:05:13.:05:14.

The family now want to buy a special, protective bed -

:05:15.:05:16.

called a Safespace - and build a soundproof extension

:05:17.:05:19.

But they estimate it will cost ?30,000 and so they have started

:05:20.:05:26.

I hope I can get rid of it as soon as possible so I can give

:05:27.:05:38.

For now the restless nights continue for a family who haven't had

:05:39.:05:44.

a decent sleep in more than a decade.

:05:45.:05:52.

Plans to set up a tree-top adventure trail in the woodland

:05:53.:05:58.

Plans to expand cancer services have been unveiled. The building or offer

:05:59.:06:06.

state-of-the-art facility for patients, carers and relatives.

:06:07.:06:10.

Langford at chemotherapy treatment lounge and complement therapies.

:06:11.:06:14.

Plans to set up a tree-top adventure trail in the woodland

:06:15.:06:16.

of Roundhay Park in Leeds is proving contraversial.

:06:17.:06:18.

Go Ape wants to install platforms, swings and zip wires.

:06:19.:06:21.

They say that no trees would need felling and walkers

:06:22.:06:23.

could still wander beneath the tree-top courses.

:06:24.:06:26.

But over a thousand signitures have already been collected from people

:06:27.:06:29.

There are concerns about noise, damage to the woodland and parking.

:06:30.:06:37.

Let's get a look at the weather with Keeley.

:06:38.:06:39.

A quiet weekend, a lot of dry weather about,

:06:40.:06:43.

that's because high pressure is dominating.

:06:44.:06:46.

I'm afraid it is quite a cloudy high, and because that is will feel

:06:47.:06:49.

Still bit grim out their this evening, a lot of cloud, hill fog,

:06:50.:06:55.

But improving as the night progresses to largely dry

:06:56.:06:59.

conditions, still a little dampness across the hills, temperatures down

:07:00.:07:02.

Tomorrow a largely dry day, the odd spot of drizzle,

:07:03.:07:08.

particularly at first, persisting for the longest

:07:09.:07:10.

Variable cloud, bright and sunny spells, particularly

:07:11.:07:13.

across northern parts, so it won't turn out to be

:07:14.:07:15.

too bad a day at all, although parts of South Yorkshire well,

:07:16.:07:19.

And with a light, northwesterly breeze, it will feel cool,

:07:20.:07:23.

More cloud, I'm afraid, but largely dry for Sunday.

:07:24.:07:29.

That's all from us for now, the Breakfast team will be back

:07:30.:07:37.

Good evening. The weather has been turning milder and also cloudier

:07:38.:07:43.

through the course of the day. We did
