A North Yorkshire farmer's market whose business rates have increased

:00:00.:00:10.

six fold has warned it will struggle to survive.

:00:11.:00:15.

Hawes Mart is at the centre of the local rural community

:00:16.:00:17.

and farmers from across the Dales rely on it.

:00:18.:00:21.

Sheep have been sold at this auction mart in Hawes for 103 years,

:00:22.:00:31.

It's seen its business rates shoot up.

:00:32.:00:35.

A revaluation means a big bill is coming in April.

:00:36.:00:38.

We've been paying business rates, about ?7,000, ?7,500 and that

:00:39.:00:42.

What does that mean for the mart, can you pay?

:00:43.:00:49.

It means that the mart isn't going to be viable.

:00:50.:00:51.

Business rates have been reset across the country.

:00:52.:00:54.

Some properties will see a fall, but rural enterprises are the worst

:00:55.:00:57.

hit, it the first revaluation for seven years.

:00:58.:01:03.

100,000 sheep are sold here every year, including

:01:04.:01:06.

The mart, an essential part of the process for getting

:01:07.:01:10.

I would regard it as insurance, really, your auction.

:01:11.:01:16.

You send things into an abattoir, it's certainly not as safe.

:01:17.:01:23.

But if the mart goes, it won't only be farmers

:01:24.:01:28.

Stuart's Guesthouse offers a stay for mart buyers and sellers.

:01:29.:01:35.

September, October are busy months anyway in Hawes,

:01:36.:01:38.

but the market adds something to it because you get farmers from all

:01:39.:01:41.

It's a big social event and visitors find it a huge attraction as well,

:01:42.:01:46.

so it's a big part of Hawes, is the market.

:01:47.:01:52.

In its defence, the Valuation Office Agency said it sets rateable

:01:53.:01:54.

There is an appeal process, but it takes three and a half years.

:01:55.:02:01.

Time enough for the mart to no longer be at the heart

:02:02.:02:05.

Three people are still in police custody tonight after a teenager

:02:06.:02:14.

was shot dead outside a barber's shop in Leeds.

:02:15.:02:16.

The two men and a woman are being held on suspicion

:02:17.:02:19.

of murder following the death of 19 year old Raheem Wilks.

:02:20.:02:23.

He was shot in Harehills on Thursday and died later in hospital.

:02:24.:02:29.

Meanwhile Raheem Wilks' 18 year-old brother Maleek

:02:30.:02:32.

made his first-team debut for Leeds United today.

:02:33.:02:35.

But his team suffered a shock defeat in the FA Cup fourth

:02:36.:02:40.

round against non-League Sutton United.

:02:41.:02:42.

Sutton may be the lowest-ranked team left in the FA Cup

:02:43.:02:46.

but they dominated against Leeds from the start.

:02:47.:02:49.

The National League side thought they were 1-0 up eight minutes in.

:02:50.:02:54.

But the celebrations were cut short by a late offside flag.

:02:55.:02:58.

Only minutes into the second half, a penalty was awarded to Sutton,

:02:59.:03:02.

Leeds felt they deserved their own penalty,

:03:03.:03:08.

The match brought an emotional moment for Maleek Wilks.

:03:09.:03:15.

Just three days after his brother was shot dead in the street,

:03:16.:03:19.

the 18 year-old striker made his Leeds United debut.

:03:20.:03:24.

But on the pitch, things got no better for Leeds.

:03:25.:03:26.

Their captain Liam Cooper was sent off after a second bookable offence,

:03:27.:03:30.

leaving United to end the match with ten men.

:03:31.:03:34.

As the final whistle blew, Sutton manager Paul Doswell had

:03:35.:03:37.

I knew after five or ten minutes of watching it

:03:38.:03:42.

we were in with a right chance, because the lads started the game

:03:43.:03:45.

So, joy for Sutton and Leeds United now

:03:46.:03:53.

The majority of this patchy drizzle is now really spreading off

:03:54.:04:08.

towards the North Sea and we're looking at a largely dry picture

:04:09.:04:11.

overnight tonight, but quite cloudy, quite misty and murky with a fair

:04:12.:04:14.

Overnight temperatures won't drop quite as low as they have

:04:15.:04:20.

over the last few nights and with all the cloud,

:04:21.:04:22.

But under clearer skies we could see a bit of frost for North Yorkshire.

:04:23.:04:27.

We'll start the day tomorrow on a very cloudy note.

:04:28.:04:29.

Lots of low cloud, mist and murk and patchy fog as well,

:04:30.:04:32.

but this will lead to a lot of low cloud.

:04:33.:04:35.

We will see very little in the way of brightness,

:04:36.:04:37.

the best of the brightness will be further east along the east coast.

:04:38.:04:40.

As always, we are at risk of seeing one or two showers,

:04:41.:04:43.

Temperatures tomorrow will get up to around 7 degrees.

:04:44.:04:46.

That's all from the late team tonight, we're back tomorrow

:04:47.:04:48.

Good evening. Very soggy down south today. A wash-out of the day for

:04:49.:05:16.

some of us. Scotland, northern parts of England, had sunshine. It's going

:05:17.:05:21.

to be cold. Already is. This is what is heading our way for the week

:05:22.:05:25.

ahead. We need our brollies out and it'll turn Wendy later in the week.

:05:26.:05:31.

The rain is clearing. I wouldn't say necessarily particularly drying out

:05:32.:05:34.

after this rain band boost towards the east, it'll stay damp but cloudy

:05:35.:05:40.

and murky in the north. Maybe freezing fog in places. It will be

:05:41.:05:42.

cold in the glands of Scotland.

:05:43.:05:45.
