There's little to show from the push to build a so-called

:00:00.:00:13.

Northern Powerhouse, according to one West

:00:14.:00:16.

The President of Bradford's Chamber of Commerce says the plans need

:00:17.:00:20.

But the Northern Powerhouse minister has defended

:00:21.:00:22.

Best boxing gym here, people are used to fighting their coroner. Out

:00:23.:00:43.

in the tone it has been a bruising 12 months for the local economy. For

:00:44.:00:49.

more than three years the government has been talking about giving the

:00:50.:00:53.

economy more punch by setting up something called a northern

:00:54.:01:00.

powerhouse. For parents and boxers here it is an idea yet to hit home.

:01:01.:01:07.

If I said the words to you, northern powerhouse, what does that mean? It

:01:08.:01:12.

is a term I've never heard until tonight. If I said it was a big push

:01:13.:01:20.

by the government to boost the economies of the North... As I say,

:01:21.:01:25.

never seen any finances coming in never seen any finances coming in

:01:26.:01:29.

this direction. People have been hit by a series of body blows. The power

:01:30.:01:37.

station has gone, as has the colliery. The local pool is days

:01:38.:01:46.

away from closing. Unemployment is at record low levels we've got

:01:47.:01:51.

massive amounts of investment, so it is having an impact but people do

:01:52.:01:54.

not need to be awfully with the strategy. To business leaders feel

:01:55.:01:59.

brighter about the plan to help hard-hit areas by building and

:02:00.:02:09.

linking economies. If you get the rail system working better and get

:02:10.:02:16.

collectivity with roads and other public transport services, then the

:02:17.:02:21.

system works better. That starts to make the area looked like a

:02:22.:02:24.

compelling place to put a new business. There is no immediate left

:02:25.:02:32.

from the high-speed rail plans but people are hoping a knock-on effect

:02:33.:02:34.

is not far down the line. A memorial has been unveiled

:02:35.:02:37.

for a mother and her two children who were murdered at their home

:02:38.:02:40.

in West Yorkshire almost a year ago. Geraldine Newman, eleven year

:02:41.:02:43.

old Shannon and six year old Shane were killed by the children's

:02:44.:02:46.

father, Paul Newman. One year on, friends and neighbours

:02:47.:03:01.

gathered to remember them. Last February, Jerry was found dead in

:03:02.:03:05.

her home from head injuries and the children from stab wounds. The

:03:06.:03:09.

father's body was found on cliffs in Anglesey. He'd been jailed for

:03:10.:03:14.

assaulting his wife previously. Today was a day of remembrance and

:03:15.:03:17.

prayed for a community which rallied together with local businesses to

:03:18.:03:22.

raise money for a lasting memorial. The community was shocked with the

:03:23.:03:25.

tragedy that happened almost a year ago. We wanted to create a lasting

:03:26.:03:35.

tribute for the family where they could come and pay their respects.

:03:36.:03:41.

Today gave an opportunity for a few moments of quiet reflection. For

:03:42.:03:46.

those who knew the family well it rot back painful memories. It was

:03:47.:03:59.

terrible, horrendous. The murder shocked all those who knew them but

:04:00.:04:02.

now they have a place to remember them.

:04:03.:04:03.

Olympic medalist Beth Tweddle has been in South Yorkshire today

:04:04.:04:05.

encouraging young people to take up gymnastics.

:04:06.:04:08.

The former World Champion helped children at Barnsley Gymnastics Club

:04:09.:04:10.

More than a hundred local children turned up

:04:11.:04:14.

It is important for children to do physical activity, sport has taught

:04:15.:04:32.

me so much which I am using in everyday life. Everything from

:04:33.:04:37.

motivation to determination. The simple things, having friends,

:04:38.:04:41.

having that social circle. Gymnastics has given me so much

:04:42.:04:44.

throughout my career and I just wanted to inspire the younger

:04:45.:04:48.

generation. I was just a young child of a dream so why can they achieve

:04:49.:04:53.

it as well? Lets see how the weather is looking. It

:04:54.:04:59.

chilly night across Yorkshire and North Derbyshire. Tomorrow starts

:05:00.:05:06.

off on a cold note. We will see some frost and dense patches of fog to

:05:07.:05:10.

look out for. Overnight is largely drive. There could be a wintry feel

:05:11.:05:18.

on high ground. Temperatures across parts of North Yorkshire will be

:05:19.:05:24.

down 2-3 C. Wherever we are it will be close to freezing. We could see

:05:25.:05:31.

some dense fog lingering for a time. This is possible just about anywhere

:05:32.:05:35.

but it looks a lot better by the time we get to the afternoon. Still

:05:36.:05:40.

pretty called. Fairly settled story over the next couple of days as high

:05:41.:05:45.

pressure remains in charge. Wrap up and I will see you soon. That is all
