Good evening. at 11pm - now on BBC1 its time

:00:07.:00:08.

Police in Leeds have launched a third murder inquiry

:00:09.:00:12.

in the Harehills area in just over two weeks.

:00:13.:00:14.

Five people have been arrested following the death of a man

:00:15.:00:17.

who was found seriously injured in the early hours of this morning.

:00:18.:00:20.

Meanwhile, floral tributes have been left at the scene

:00:21.:00:22.

of an incident on Friday, which left a 16 year-old boy dead.

:00:23.:00:25.

A 15 year-old arrested on suspicion of murder has now been

:00:26.:00:30.

This afternoon, Harehills Lane has reopened. The police cordon has

:00:31.:00:43.

gone. A growing pile of floral tributes to the 16-year-old boy

:00:44.:00:51.

remains. Many have clearly been laid by other young people remembering a

:00:52.:00:57.

close friend. In a series of tweets, Leeds MP Richard Burden sent his

:00:58.:01:01.

condolences to the family -- victim's family and friends. He said

:01:02.:01:06.

it was a shock to a wonderful and strong community. In an unhappy

:01:07.:01:10.

coincidence, another murder investigation has begun just over

:01:11.:01:14.

half a mile away. House-to-house enquiries are under way after police

:01:15.:01:18.

were called here in the early hours of this morning by the ambulance

:01:19.:01:22.

service. They found a man with serious injuries who died a short

:01:23.:01:26.

time later. Four men and a woman have been arrested on suspicion of

:01:27.:01:30.

murder. They are still being questioned. Meanwhile, led this

:01:31.:01:33.

afternoon, police confirmed a 15-year-old boy questioned in

:01:34.:01:38.

relation to the death of the 16-year-old on Harehills Lane has

:01:39.:01:39.

been released without charge. West Yorkshire's Chief Constable has

:01:40.:01:42.

said she does have concerns over a drama about the kidnapping

:01:43.:01:45.

of Shannon Matthews. The first of two episodes

:01:46.:01:49.

of Moorside aired last week. It focuses on the community's

:01:50.:01:53.

response to the hoax nine years ago. Dee Collins told BBC Radio Leeds she

:01:54.:01:57.

fears it could re-open old wounds. But says family members and people

:01:58.:02:00.

in Dewsbury Moor will be listened to, if they have any

:02:01.:02:03.

new information about the case. 12,000 new homes are being built

:02:04.:02:11.

across the region every year - but it's claimed that figure needs

:02:12.:02:14.

to rise to 18,000 if we are going So will the government's

:02:15.:02:18.

latest housing plans help? Charlotte Rose has

:02:19.:02:21.

been investigating. The government says it wants to fix

:02:22.:02:34.

the broken housing market. They say England needs 250,000 new homes a

:02:35.:02:39.

year. And we aren't building nearly enough. So how will the government

:02:40.:02:43.

kick-start a house-building revolution? It requires all local

:02:44.:02:48.

authorities to be a lot more realistic about local need. To

:02:49.:02:53.

assess that properly and honestly. Secondly, it diversifies the market.

:02:54.:02:56.

We need a lot more smaller independent builders. We also need

:02:57.:03:02.

new methods of construction. We also need to make sure that where local

:03:03.:03:06.

authorities do give planning permission, that planning permission

:03:07.:03:10.

actually turns into homes. Sajid Javid says he will keep protection

:03:11.:03:13.

on green belt land except where there are no other options for a

:03:14.:03:18.

house-building. But not everybody is convinced. Here in Sheffield, there

:03:19.:03:22.

is no local plan for how land can be used. It means developers can put in

:03:23.:03:25.

applications like on this land on the outskirts of the village of deep

:03:26.:03:32.

car. The green belt is up for review as part of the local planning

:03:33.:03:36.

process, and we don't yet know which areas will be proposed to be taken

:03:37.:03:41.

out of it. Sheffield should only grow outwards. That is our argument.

:03:42.:03:47.

If it is making the most use of its inner urban areas. Developers have

:03:48.:03:53.

problems, too. We have had issues with skills shortages. The hardest

:03:54.:03:56.

thing is getting young guys interested in coming into the

:03:57.:04:00.

industry and wanting to work for it. The government says its white Paper

:04:01.:04:06.

should clear some of the blockages. Labour say it is a damp squid and

:04:07.:04:11.

will do little to ease the housing crisis.

:04:12.:04:12.

There was just one game in Superleague this afternoon.

:04:13.:04:14.

Wakefield Wildcats' season didn't get off to a good start.

:04:15.:04:16.

It is Wakefield's a defeat in a row in the top flight as they lost all

:04:17.:04:31.

seven games during the super eight. -- super eights.

:04:32.:04:33.

Snow has causing disruption on higher ground across

:04:34.:04:35.

This was the scene on Fleet Moss near Hawes

:04:36.:04:38.

Snake Pass near Sheffield was also closed.

:04:39.:04:41.

Police have also told motorists to avoid Greenhow Hill

:04:42.:04:43.

in Pateley Bridge, because of dangerous conditions.

:04:44.:04:50.

Is these now going to stay? Let's get the details. Hello. Not

:04:51.:04:59.

the best weekend of weather but it is said to improve as we move into

:05:00.:05:04.

the new working week. Still quite a squeeze on the isobars, meaning

:05:05.:05:08.

strong winds will take the edge of those temperatures. Tuesday, things

:05:09.:05:12.

will start to feel less cold. Some snow over the highest ground. This

:05:13.:05:19.

is beginning to fragment. A largely dry picture by Dawn Butler very

:05:20.:05:21.

cloudy. We shouldn't be at risk of seeing any frost. It will be a

:05:22.:05:27.

cloudy, windy and cold start to the day. Hill fog around first thing. If

:05:28.:05:34.

we factor in the cold wind, unexposed coast and over the hills,

:05:35.:05:38.

it will feel very cold indeed. Temperatures on paper don't look too

:05:39.:05:39.

bad. Factor in the breeze and it bad. Factor in the breeze and it

:05:40.:05:44.

will feel bitterly cold. Turning much less cold in the week.

:05:45.:05:50.

That is all for now. We are back with the late bulletin after the

:05:51.:05:57.

BAFTAs coverage at 11:20pm. Have a great evening.

:05:58.:05:57.

Bye-bye.
