BBC Two. Good evening and welcome

:00:00.:00:00.

to the late Look North. Police investigate what they call

:00:00.:00:00.

the "suspicious death" Operations cancelled

:00:00.:00:07.

and long waiting times - now claims Yorkshire's hospitals

:00:08.:00:12.

are so overcrowded And quiet weather conditions

:00:13.:00:14.

over the coming week. Join me for that live,

:00:15.:00:20.

updated forecast. Police are investigating the death

:00:21.:00:30.

of a teenage girl near Rotherham. Officers say it

:00:31.:00:33.

is being treated as suspicious because of the nature

:00:34.:00:35.

of the injuries on her body. The girl was discovered by members

:00:36.:00:38.

of the public on a pathway off Lordens Hill in the Dinnington area

:00:39.:00:42.

at just before 11am this morning. Police are deploying extra patrols

:00:43.:00:47.

in the area to reassure the public. A police forensics tent

:00:48.:00:50.

on a secluded pathway, close to homes and shops

:00:51.:00:58.

on Lorden's Hill, where the body

:00:59.:01:00.

of a teenage girl, thought to be 15 or 16,

:01:01.:01:02.

was discovered. Because of the injuries

:01:03.:01:04.

she'd suffered, her death is being

:01:05.:01:06.

treated as suspicious. We're at a very early stage

:01:07.:01:10.

of the investigation to find out exactly

:01:11.:01:12.

what happened to her. So we have dedicated resources

:01:13.:01:14.

deployed now to investigate this. There was a report

:01:15.:01:19.

of a missing episode, but only 20 minutes prior

:01:20.:01:24.

to the finding of the body. However, we have not been able

:01:25.:01:27.

to formally identify the body, and therefore I can't

:01:28.:01:32.

give any details as to who the person

:01:33.:01:34.

is at this stage. and urging anyone

:01:35.:01:37.

who knows anything about this event, and anyone who saw any suspicious

:01:38.:01:40.

behaviour in the area, to please come forward and report it

:01:41.:01:43.

to the police. Through the evening,

:01:44.:01:48.

those who knew the girl brought flowers and paid

:01:49.:01:50.

tribute on social media. People living nearby are really

:01:51.:02:10.

concerned by what's happened here. Many of them are too

:02:11.:02:13.

distressed to be interviewed. One couple told me

:02:14.:02:15.

they've got a teenage daughter, and she won't be walking to school

:02:16.:02:17.

in her own tomorrow. Police have said they'll

:02:18.:02:21.

increase patrols in the area As investigations continue to try

:02:22.:02:24.

and work out what happened here, detectives are asking anyone

:02:25.:02:29.

with information to contact them. that high bed occupancy rates

:02:30.:02:38.

at hospitals across Yorkshire could be putting

:02:39.:02:42.

patient safety at risk. Latest figures from NHS England show

:02:43.:02:44.

that some Trusts have been operating which has led to many

:02:45.:02:48.

operations being cancelled. Our health correspondent,

:02:49.:02:52.

Jamie Coulson, reports. Anna is deaf, registered blind

:02:53.:02:57.

and struggles with her mobility. The 41-year-old was born

:02:58.:03:01.

with a rare genetic disorder which means benign tumours grow

:03:02.:03:07.

throughout her body. Six weeks ago she was due

:03:08.:03:09.

to have a long-awaited operation at Leeds General Infirmary

:03:10.:03:11.

on her lower lip to help with her eating and speech

:03:12.:03:14.

but it was cancelled on the day While Anna's operation

:03:15.:03:17.

is important to her, she admits it's not life and death

:03:18.:03:33.

and, while frustrating, cancelling non-urgent operations

:03:34.:03:37.

is one of the ways hospitals The trust has apologised but says

:03:38.:03:40.

like elsewhere in the NHS they are dealing with

:03:41.:03:46.

unprecedented levels of demand. Hospitals try not to have bed

:03:47.:03:50.

occupancy rates above 85%, otherwise research suggests

:03:51.:03:54.

they can have frequent bed shortages, occasional

:03:55.:03:56.

bed crises and an increase During the first week

:03:57.:04:01.

of January, hospital trusts in Yorkshire had an annual bed

:04:02.:04:07.

occupancy rate of more than 94%. At the Teaching Hospital

:04:08.:04:12.

in Leeds, it was over 97%. We already know that there

:04:13.:04:16.

is a huge shortage We know that there is around 26,000

:04:17.:04:28.

vacancies for nurses throughout the UK, therefore we are absolutely

:04:29.:04:32.

clear that safe patient care cannot be delivered with

:04:33.:04:34.

those kind of occupancy levels. Hospitals say bed shortages mean

:04:35.:04:51.

they have to prioritise those patients whose needs

:04:52.:04:53.

are most urgent. But that means those like Anna

:04:54.:04:57.

must continue to wait. Our health correspondent,

:04:58.:05:01.

Jamie Coulson, joins me now. Why are bed occupancy

:05:02.:05:03.

levels so important? Hospitals need to keep capacity in

:05:04.:05:15.

the system so they can kill with emergencies that come in. Also, if

:05:16.:05:20.

hospitals are to fall, it can be difficult for them to control

:05:21.:05:24.

infection rates. The reasons for high occupancy rates are complex and

:05:25.:05:29.

varied. Essentially, if you have got too many patients coming in through

:05:30.:05:32.

the front door who need to be admitted but not enough leaving who

:05:33.:05:37.

are fit to go, but had me have robins with social care, then that

:05:38.:05:41.

causes problems with the flow of the whole hospital system. Marcus from

:05:42.:05:48.

the Nuffield Trust. We have seen that a third of trusts are declaring

:05:49.:05:51.

that these pressures average the point where they are affecting

:05:52.:05:58.

patient flow. Occupancy levels are very high, often too high to move

:05:59.:06:05.

patients through in a timely way. The statistics are not looking good.

:06:06.:06:09.

What is NHS England say about this? They say it is not uncommon for the

:06:10.:06:14.

hospital trust to be facing winter pressures at this time of year. It

:06:15.:06:20.

is not uncommon for them to have 100% overnight. That you'd be a

:06:21.:06:24.

short period of time. If patients do need care in a hospital, or a

:06:25.:06:28.

similar setting during the winter months, then they will get it. Thank

:06:29.:06:30.

you. Hundreds of people gathered

:06:31.:06:31.

to release balloons near the school that Katie Rough

:06:32.:06:33.

went to in York on what would have Katie died after being found

:06:34.:06:36.

with serious injuries A 15-year-old girl's been

:06:37.:06:39.

charged with her murder. Her family wanted every colour

:06:40.:06:43.

of the rainbow to represent

:06:44.:06:48.

the exuberance of their little Katie and balloons to mark what would have

:06:49.:06:52.

been her eighth birthday today. An invitation on Facebook

:06:53.:06:57.

for anyone to attend touched hundreds of people,

:06:58.:06:59.

who waited quietly in Westfield Park to write a balloon message

:07:00.:07:02.

for Katie with thoughts and prayers

:07:03.:07:06.

or sign a book, not for condolences

:07:07.:07:09.

but to celebrate her life. I was asked if I would consider

:07:10.:07:30.

supplying balloons. I immediately said yes. I was moved by it. I just

:07:31.:07:33.

wanted to help. I think it's nice how

:07:34.:07:34.

the community have come together. I think we need to...everybody show

:07:35.:07:36.

support in circumstances like this and just celebrate

:07:37.:07:39.

Katie's life, really. Especially being a young lass

:07:40.:07:43.

from our area, you don't expect stuff like that to happen

:07:44.:07:49.

in your own area. And I've got a son who's a year

:07:50.:07:52.

older and it just makes you think. Katie was found with knife wounds

:07:53.:07:58.

near a playing field Just two days later,

:07:59.:08:00.

her family had the terrible ordeal of seeing a 15-year-old girl

:08:01.:08:08.

charged with Katie's murder. At the spot where she died,

:08:09.:08:13.

hundreds of flowers have been laid in an expression of the empathy

:08:14.:08:15.

and concern of the wider York community, who supported

:08:16.:08:20.

the family again today. Katie's parents, Alison

:08:21.:08:23.

and Paul Rough, were comforted by the Archbishop of York,

:08:24.:08:26.

who accompanied them. it made a spectacle

:08:27.:08:31.

of extreme poignancy, expressing so much more

:08:32.:08:53.

than words ever could. Two women have been charged

:08:54.:09:00.

with preventing lawful work from being carried out

:09:01.:09:02.

during a protest Jenny Hockey and her friend,

:09:03.:09:06.

Freda Breyshaw, were arrested in November as they demonstrated

:09:07.:09:13.

against the council's decision to cut down a number of trees

:09:14.:09:18.

on Rustlings Street. They are due to appear

:09:19.:09:20.

before Sheffield magistrates It has been dubbed blue Monday, and

:09:21.:09:35.

the weather has not helped. At least there have been no tidal surges this

:09:36.:09:43.

week! Just look at the statements. It is spot the difference if you

:09:44.:09:46.

look at the pressure chart. Weather France dying a slow death, high

:09:47.:09:51.

pressure means settled conditions. The second half of the week, hardly

:09:52.:09:56.

any wind either. Largely frost free. After a dreary start and we will see

:09:57.:10:00.

some might rain drizzled a night, and mist and fog, the weather front

:10:01.:10:04.

should fizzle away, and then we have got more patchy rain coming into the

:10:05.:10:07.

north-west. Frost free, the lowest temperatures around for Celsius. The

:10:08.:10:15.

Tuesday, it is overcast, dull and damp. Might start dry in South

:10:16.:10:18.

Yorkshire, but this light rain and drizzle will sink southwards. A

:10:19.:10:23.

miserable afternoon over the top of the Pennines. Eastern parts of

:10:24.:10:29.

Yorkshire might stay dry, but little chance of any brightness, just a

:10:30.:10:31.

light and variable breeze, and top temperatures at around five or six,

:10:32.:10:39.

maybe seven Celsius. More of the same on Tuesday evening into Tuesday

:10:40.:10:44.

night. Bowl, damp and dreary. Some mist and fog over the hills. By

:10:45.:10:47.

first light Wednesday morning, it should be largely dry. Wednesday

:10:48.:10:53.

itself looks mostly dry. Might brighten up a bit. Cloudy weather,

:10:54.:11:00.

some breaks in the cloud. Cabbage is close to normal for the time of

:11:01.:11:03.

year. That it from us, I will leave you with a summary

:11:04.:11:06.

perhaps a little milder. If you like the mild weather, you'll have

:11:07.:11:07.
