Good evening, you're watching the late Look North.

:00:00.:00:00.

Primary school children are told to delete a mobile

:00:00.:00:00.

phone app after a man exposes himself to them online.

:00:00.:00:11.

And, the BBC learns of eight possible locations

:00:12.:00:14.

for a parkway station on the High Speed Two rail line.

:00:15.:00:25.

It looks like tomorrow will be the coldest day of the winter season so

:00:26.:00:30.

far. Join me for the live updated forecast.

:00:31.:00:33.

But first tonight, a special report from inside an anti-fracking

:00:34.:00:36.

A small group of protestors moved in just before Christmas,

:00:37.:00:40.

and now a growing number of people are calling a field at the edge

:00:41.:00:44.

The area is one of two sites in Britain, where the controversial

:00:45.:00:49.

process of extracting shale gas has been given the go ahead.

:00:50.:00:52.

Our business correspondent Danni Hewson reports on her night

:00:53.:00:55.

at the so-called front line in the fight against fracking.

:00:56.:01:04.

What is quickly apparent is the support this camp is receiving

:01:05.:01:07.

Donations of logs, food, water and many willing hands.

:01:08.:01:12.

It has become something of a hub and draws in visitors

:01:13.:01:14.

Some local campaigners had resisted the arrival of a camp,

:01:15.:01:20.

but others feel this was always the next step.

:01:21.:01:24.

We still want to go back to court and win on environmental grounds,

:01:25.:01:27.

but while this is here, people want to show...

:01:28.:01:30.

It's the only way to say no politely, respectfully.

:01:31.:01:33.

But it has only been a month, and those on site are preparing

:01:34.:01:41.

Wi-Fi, 3G, sturdy structures are going up, and of course

:01:42.:01:48.

The self proclaimed protectors are trespassing.

:01:49.:01:54.

This site belongs to the owners of nearby Flamingo Land.

:01:55.:01:58.

It is not ideal, but that is the nature

:01:59.:02:00.

The amount of common land is very limited,

:02:01.:02:06.

particularly in this area, and the amount of unused land

:02:07.:02:09.

We do have a Plan B, but I can assure you that would have

:02:10.:02:16.

greater implications on the local community than us being here.

:02:17.:02:18.

He says they have begun a dialogue with the landowner,

:02:19.:02:21.

but their presence on private land is a source of tension locally.

:02:22.:02:24.

As night falls, another issue emerges.

:02:25.:02:28.

With the visitors gone, most of those at the camp

:02:29.:02:31.

are from out of the area, many veterans from other protests.

:02:32.:02:35.

As we sat by the fire, I asked him what he hoped to achieve.

:02:36.:02:44.

Wherever that has been a protection camp there has been success.

:02:45.:02:46.

We have got optimism, we believe we will be successful.

:02:47.:02:49.

We would not camp in this field through winter

:02:50.:02:52.

Within months, this could be the first place to be

:02:53.:03:01.

hydraulically fractured since the moratorium was ended.

:03:02.:03:04.

Legally, the company that has invested time and money in this site

:03:05.:03:07.

now have the green light, and they have no truck

:03:08.:03:09.

I have sympathy with anyone who has a genuine concern

:03:10.:03:14.

about what it is we are going to do, but what they should

:03:15.:03:17.

As so many of the locals in the area have.

:03:18.:03:21.

After they have been to see us, and we have explained

:03:22.:03:23.

what it is we are going to do, 99% of them leave happy and assured

:03:24.:03:27.

that what we are going to do is going to be done safely.

:03:28.:03:30.

But such is the concern of those at the camp they are willing

:03:31.:03:35.

to endure inhospitable conditions to wage their battle.

:03:36.:03:41.

After this, it will go everywhere, so we have got to stop it here.

:03:42.:03:48.

The next few months will tell the story.

:03:49.:03:58.

Parents across Leeds have been warned about a mobile phone app

:03:59.:04:01.

after a man exposed himself to a group of primary

:04:02.:04:04.

Lively allows users to broadcast video from their phone

:04:05.:04:10.

But parents have been told it can provide opportunities

:04:11.:04:15.

for children to be groomed, as Emma Glasbey reports.

:04:16.:04:19.

It is the latest app designed for teenagers.

:04:20.:04:25.

Live-ly is being used by young people to live stream group

:04:26.:04:27.

But now there has been an incident in Leeds highlighting

:04:28.:04:33.

Some primary school children were using Live-ly on Monday night.

:04:34.:04:39.

A man they didn't know joined in the chat.

:04:40.:04:42.

He went on to expose himself and performed a sex act.

:04:43.:04:45.

The next day, the school sent a letter to parents,

:04:46.:04:47.

There seems to be a bit of a deficit in parents' knowledge of what can

:04:48.:05:18.

actually happen online, and at the moment it seems that this

:05:19.:05:21.

deficit is what is being exploited by people who want to exploit it.

:05:22.:05:25.

West Yorkshire Police now have specialist detectives

:05:26.:05:28.

investigating the case, and hunting for the man involved.

:05:29.:05:40.

Well, the concern with live streaming as we have seen here is

:05:41.:05:53.

that children don't always know who they are streaming to, and they can

:05:54.:05:57.

be exposed to inappropriate content. Carrots are being told they need to

:05:58.:06:00.

be more aware of exactly what young people are doing on social media --

:06:01.:06:06.

parents. We know that many parents of preschool children across Leeds

:06:07.:06:08.

received a message today saying that apps like Live-ly are not safe for

:06:09.:06:14.

young children. There is a significant risk of inappropriate

:06:15.:06:18.

contact. Herod are being advised to make sure that children do not have

:06:19.:06:23.

access to these apps -- parents. They must also switch on privacy

:06:24.:06:27.

settings so children are protected when they are on any Internet site.

:06:28.:06:32.

Five men have been found guilty of the sexual abuse of two girls

:06:33.:06:38.

Matloob Hussain, Mohammed Sadiq and brothers

:06:39.:06:41.

Basharat, Nasser and Tayab Dad, were convicted after a trial

:06:42.:06:43.

Amjad Ali pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing.

:06:44.:06:46.

The offences date back to the late 1990s.

:06:47.:06:48.

Yorkshire Building Society Group is to close four branches

:06:49.:06:52.

in our region as part of a company-wide restructuring

:06:53.:06:54.

plan.YBS sites in Farsley, Mirfield, Waterloo near Huddersfield and Wyke

:06:55.:06:57.

will close in May, putting 20 jobs at risk.

:06:58.:06:59.

Nationally, 44 other branches will close, putting nearly 10%

:07:00.:07:01.

The company says it hopes to minimise redundancies as it

:07:02.:07:04.

focuses more on its mortgages and savings businesses.

:07:05.:07:09.

The BBC has learned of eight possible locations

:07:10.:07:12.

for a parkway station on the High Speed Two rail line.

:07:13.:07:15.

In South Yorkshire they would be Wales, Bramley, Hooton Roberts,

:07:16.:07:18.

Mexborough, Hickleton and Clayton, along with Hemsworth

:07:19.:07:21.

Tom Ingall's been talking to those living at one

:07:22.:07:26.

The new HS2 line is expected to cross it just ahead of the bridge

:07:27.:07:34.

That's why a parkway station might be built here,

:07:35.:07:40.

just a few hundred meters from the village of Clayton

:07:41.:07:44.

People bought these houses in a remote location

:07:45.:07:49.

and they have bought them because they want to live in

:07:50.:07:52.

They want to live in the countryside, they don't

:07:53.:07:56.

want to live beside a 1700 space car park and a train station.

:07:57.:07:59.

What if it promoted economic regeneration in the air?

:08:00.:08:02.

As long as it means people aren't losing their homes to put up

:08:03.:08:14.

Clayton is one of eight sites being considered

:08:15.:08:17.

to serve South Yorkshire, to supplement the proposed Sheffield

:08:18.:08:20.

One of the drivers behind the parkway is to be able to spread

:08:21.:08:28.

the benefits of HS2 as widely as possible across Yorkshire,

:08:29.:08:32.

and to make sure as many people as possible have access to it.

:08:33.:08:35.

This is going to be a very big year for HS2.

:08:36.:08:40.

First of all, they should finally pin down their route options

:08:41.:08:44.

for this part of the world, and doubtless there will be a nip

:08:45.:08:47.

Secondly, and more importantly, within a few months they are likely

:08:48.:08:52.

to stick shovels on the ground to build the first part of the line

:08:53.:08:56.

For people who like or dislike the idea of a parkway

:08:57.:09:01.

station near their village, everything is still to play for.

:09:02.:09:04.

It might be quiet today, but in 20 years' time,

:09:05.:09:06.

this part of the world could look very different indeed.

:09:07.:09:13.

Football, and there's one result for you.

:09:14.:09:17.

Chris Wood's 20th goal of the season helped Leeds United to victory

:09:18.:09:20.

The result takes them up to third in the Championship.

:09:21.:09:28.

Time now for the weather forecast. Tomorrow will be the coldest day of

:09:29.:09:35.

the winter season so far. Let's have a look at the headline then. Raw,

:09:36.:09:40.

bitterly cold, a significant wind-chill. The air is being drawn

:09:41.:09:44.

up from France and Holland, but eventually as we move into the

:09:45.:09:47.

weekend, the Atlantic pushes through. Sunday looks nice with a

:09:48.:09:52.

ridge of high pressure, and next week are increasingly we will see

:09:53.:09:57.

milder and wetter south-westerly air coming in right across Yorkshire and

:09:58.:10:01.

the North Midlands. We are beginning to see low cloud pushing up from the

:10:02.:10:05.

south-east. That cloud thick enough for a bit of drizzle, if fuel light

:10:06.:10:10.

snow flurries, frost and eyes to with temperatures down to minus two

:10:11.:10:17.

Celsius. So a really cold, raw day tomorrow. Overcast skies, some mist

:10:18.:10:21.

and fog, probably just for the tops of the hills. Any brightness at a

:10:22.:10:27.

premium. A significant wind-chill with a fresh south-easterly wind.

:10:28.:10:32.

One Celsius the top temperature in Leeds, but elsewhere really

:10:33.:10:38.

struggling at around freezing. As the head through Thursday evening,

:10:39.:10:44.

more of the same. Overcast skies. Patchy light sleet and snow for a

:10:45.:10:49.

time as we head to the early hours of Friday morning. That will leave

:10:50.:10:53.

ice and frost. Another dull, damp and whole day on Friday at the

:10:54.:10:57.

weekend looks milder. I will leave you with the summary of

:10:58.:11:00.

tomorrow's weather. take a look at the Outlook towards

:11:01.:11:00.

the weekend. Good evening. If you think it was

:11:01.:11:12.

cold today, for many it will be colder still tomorrow. Cold even

:11:13.:11:15.

when we have the sunshine today. This was one of the wonderful

:11:16.:11:19.

weather watcher pictures we had sent in from Cornwall. It contrasts with

:11:20.:11:23.

a cloudy and foggy eastern half of the country, and a bank of cloud.

:11:24.:11:28.

Still foggy, but it is starting to lift. It is being pushed north and

:11:29.:11:32.

west, this bank of cloud. That will continue through the night. We will

:11:33.:11:36.

still have some fog sitting on the hills. Even with the cloud, it will

:11:37.:11:41.

be a cold night, with temperatures away from the far north and west

:11:42.:11:45.

falling to freezing. In the countryside, well below freezing.

:11:46.:11:49.

And on the wind and it will feel better, it already feels better.

:11:50.:11:53.

Giving us some freezing drizzle and snow as well. Although the fog will

:11:54.:11:58.

not be as extensive as recent nights, it will still be

:11:59.:11:59.
