by their dad takes her campaign to Downing Street.

:00:10.:00:14.

And the polar with the molar - what happens when this big bear has

A mother, whose two young sons were deliberately killed

:00:18.:00:36.

by their father in an arson attack at his home in South Yorkshire,

:00:37.:00:39.

is taking a petition to Downing Street this afternoon

:00:40.:00:41.

calling for a change in the law governing access to children.

:00:42.:00:47.

Jack and Paul Throssell died in October two years ago

:00:48.:00:51.

during an access visit to their father Darren Sykes

:00:52.:00:54.

Sykes killed himself alongside his sons.

:00:55.:00:59.

Our correspondent John Cundy reports.

:01:00.:01:03.

Jack Throssell, who was 12, and his nine-year-old brother Paul

:01:04.:01:06.

were lured to their death by their father Darren.

:01:07.:01:09.

He took them to the attic of his house in Penistone to see

:01:10.:01:13.

a new model train set, but Sykes set fire to the house

:01:14.:01:16.

and blocked the three of them in the burning attic.

:01:17.:01:21.

I had flagged it up to everybody - social services, Cafcass,

:01:22.:01:26.

The judge was aware as well, and it is actually in my court case

:01:27.:01:31.

that I said I thought he would either kill

:01:32.:01:33.

He'd threatened to commit suicide a couple of months earlier,

:01:34.:01:43.

and he just wasn't in the right place at the time to have

:01:44.:01:48.

Claire Throssell says her sons had never enjoyed their visits

:01:49.:01:54.

She says judges should be made to listen more directly

:01:55.:01:59.

to the feelings of children when deciding who has access to them

:02:00.:02:04.

This afternoon, Claire will take the petition to Downing Street,

:02:05.:02:08.

signed by more than 40,000 people, demanding a change to family law.

:02:09.:02:13.

What we need to do is to make sure children are at the heart

:02:14.:02:17.

of every decision made, and that they are

:02:18.:02:19.

Jack never had his voice heard until he was in the fire

:02:20.:02:25.

and he said to the firemen, my dad did this and

:02:26.:02:27.

Claire Throssell has been a strong campaigner for more changes ever

:02:28.:02:33.

since she suffered the tragic death of her sons in Penistone.

:02:34.:02:38.

The children's voices must always be heard in these cases,

:02:39.:02:42.

and their wishes and feelings must be taken into account.

:02:43.:02:44.

This afternoon, she takes that campaign just one step further.

:02:45.:02:47.

We will have more on that story on Look North tonight at 6:30pm.

:02:48.:03:03.

A new ?5.2 million trial to improve lung cancer diagnoses is to be

:03:04.:03:06.

Vans carrying screening equipment will visit different

:03:07.:03:09.

The results will be used to plan a national programme.

:03:10.:03:12.

Around 4,500 people are diagnosed with the disease

:03:13.:03:14.

Two West Yorkshire Police officers have been praised for their bravery

:03:15.:03:21.

after rescuing a mother and child from freezing water

:03:22.:03:24.

The woman's car left the road and ended up on its side

:03:25.:03:31.

in a water-filled ditch in South Milford near Selby.

:03:32.:03:34.

The officers jumped into the icy water to free the woman and child.

:03:35.:03:37.

They were taken to hospital as a precaution.

:03:38.:03:39.

The Police and Crime Commissioner Mark Burns Williamson applauded

:03:40.:03:41.

Schoolchildren who are disabled, able-bodied or have special

:03:42.:03:49.

educational needs have been taking part in the very first

:03:50.:03:52.

The fully-inclusive event is support ed by the Yorkshire

:03:53.:03:58.

double Paralympic gold-medallist Danielle Brown.

:03:59.:04:01.

Yes, welcome to the 4 All Games here in Wakefield.

:04:02.:04:07.

This is an opportunity for children from lots of different backgrounds

:04:08.:04:10.

Some of the children here are disabled and some

:04:11.:04:14.

are able-bodied and some have special educational needs.

:04:15.:04:16.

But they are all having a go at sports, and archery is first up.

:04:17.:04:20.

Let's have a chat with Danielle Brown, the former

:04:21.:04:22.

Paralympic gold medallist who is just the right

:04:23.:04:25.

person to be giving tips on this board, because,

:04:26.:04:28.

Why are you involved in the 4 All Games?

:04:29.:04:32.

We are trying to make sport inclusive, so today

:04:33.:04:34.

we have got a range of kids with different abilities.

:04:35.:04:37.

We have able-bodied, we have SEN,

:04:38.:04:39.

and we have physically disabled as well...

:04:40.:04:41.

So they are all here and all playing together,

:04:42.:04:44.

all on a level playing field and competing together.

:04:45.:04:47.

And you did not have this sort of opportunity

:04:48.:04:50.

No, I spent two hours a week in the library instead of PE,

:04:51.:04:54.

So, yeah, I know that sport can be inclusive,

:04:55.:05:00.

Why is it so important for children of different backgrounds

:05:01.:05:05.

to have a go at sports, and also together?

:05:06.:05:07.

You learn so many different skills, the life skills that

:05:08.:05:11.

you need to succeed, and through it you can teach

:05:12.:05:13.

things like confidence, togetherness, inclusivity...

:05:14.:05:18.

We are breaking down barriers here by getting

:05:19.:05:20.

I will let you get back to giving some top tips to the archers here.

:05:21.:05:27.

Yorkshire and like the page. What was the weather like this

:07:50.:08:00.

morning? Very foggy and very cold. I do not think we will have quite such

:08:01.:08:04.

a foggy night, more of a breeze. The worst will be through this evening.

:08:05.:08:09.

We still have some fog patches in places at the moment. A dry wind

:08:10.:08:14.

with some sunshine, but with that lingering fog it will feel called

:08:15.:08:17.

this afternoon. Here is the chart for the pressure for this week,

:08:18.:08:22.

breezy and cold and drawing air from the cold continent on the southerly

:08:23.:08:31.

breeze. Over the weekend, the Atlantic will implement influence on

:08:32.:08:33.

our weather. Temperatures on the rise. It will get more cool before

:08:34.:08:36.

it gets warmer. Still lingering fog patches and called to the afternoon

:08:37.:08:39.

and one or two Celsius, more cloud in the West and best sunny breaks

:08:40.:08:44.

further east. The weather will still have patchy cloud. Temperature wise,

:08:45.:08:50.

an average for the time of year at five or six Celsius, but much cooler

:08:51.:08:54.

where you have lingering fog through the day, and some spots remaining

:08:55.:08:59.

freezing. Some mist and fog will redevelop through the course of this

:09:00.:09:02.

evening, but as the breeze picks up overnight, it should stop it

:09:03.:09:07.

becoming too dense. Might be some drizzle and always more cloud

:09:08.:09:10.

through the day and the coldest temperatures will be through this

:09:11.:09:13.

evening and there is time to lift a bit before the end of the night. Not

:09:14.:09:19.

such widespread frost tomorrow. Tomorrow, a cold start with

:09:20.:09:23.

sunshine, gradually through the day clouding over from the East.
