Police have named the teenager who was stabbed in the street

:00:09.:00:12.

in Harehills area of Leeds on Friday as 16-year-old Irfan Wahid.

:00:13.:00:16.

A post-mortem examination confirmed the cause of his death as a single

:00:17.:00:19.

Meanwhile, five people have been arrested following the death

:00:20.:00:24.

of a man this morning in the same part of the city.

:00:25.:00:26.

This afternoon, Harehills Lane reopened and the police

:00:27.:00:32.

But the sea of flowers continues to grow.

:00:33.:00:40.

A visual reminder that a 16-year-old boy was fatally

:00:41.:00:42.

Tonight, he was named as Irfan Wahid.

:00:43.:00:45.

A postmortem examination confirmed he died from a single

:00:46.:00:47.

Since his death, friends and family have taken to social media to urge

:00:48.:00:56.

In an unhappy coincidence, another murder investigation has

:00:57.:00:59.

House-to-house enquiries have been taking place on Bexley Mount

:01:00.:01:02.

after police were called here in the early hours of this

:01:03.:01:05.

They found a man with serious injuries who died

:01:06.:01:17.

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

:01:18.:01:24.

Meanwhile, a 15-year-old boy questioned in relation to the death

:01:25.:01:27.

of Irfan Wahid has been released without charge.

:01:28.:01:31.

Anna Crossley, BBC Look North, Leeds.

:01:32.:01:36.

West Yorkshire's chief constable has said she does have concerns over

:01:37.:01:38.

a drama about the kidnapping of Shannon Matthews.

:01:39.:01:44.

The first of two episodes of The Moorside aired last week.

:01:45.:01:47.

It focuses on the community's response to the hoax nine years ago.

:01:48.:01:52.

Dee Collins told BBC Radio Leeds she fears it could re-open old wounds.

:01:53.:01:55.

But says family members and people in Dewsbury Moor will be listened

:01:56.:01:58.

to if they have any new information about the case.

:01:59.:02:09.

12,000 new homes are being built across the region every year,

:02:10.:02:11.

but it's claimed that figure needs to rise to 18,000 to

:02:12.:02:14.

So will the Government's latest housing plans help?

:02:15.:02:19.

The Government says it wants to fix the broken housing market.

:02:20.:02:34.

They say England needs 250,000 new homes a year, and we aren't

:02:35.:02:37.

So how will the Government kick-start

:02:38.:02:40.

First of all, it requires all local authorities to be a lot more

:02:41.:02:44.

realistic about local need, to assess that

:02:45.:02:46.

We need a lot more smaller, independent builders.

:02:47.:02:50.

We also need new methods of construction.

:02:51.:02:54.

Sajid Javid also says he'll keep protections on green belt land,

:02:55.:02:57.

except where there are no other options for house-building.

:02:58.:03:00.

Here in Sheffield, there is no local plan for how lands can be used.

:03:01.:03:04.

It means developers can put in applications

:03:05.:03:06.

for developments like on this land on the outskirts of Deepcar.

:03:07.:03:15.

The green belt in Sheffield is up for review as part

:03:16.:03:18.

of the local plan process, and we don't yet know which areas

:03:19.:03:21.

and which sites will be proposed to be taken out of the green belt.

:03:22.:03:24.

Our issue really here is that Sheffield should really only grow

:03:25.:03:27.

outwards if it's making the most use of its inner urban areas.

:03:28.:03:32.

The Government says its White Paper should clear some of the blockages

:03:33.:03:35.

that prevent homes being built at the rate they're needed.

:03:36.:03:38.

Labour said the White Paper is a damp squib, and will do little

:03:39.:03:41.

Before we get the forecast, snow has caused disruption on higher

:03:42.:03:50.

This was the scene on Fleet Moss near Hawes in North Yorkshire this

:03:51.:03:58.

morning before snow ploughs could reach the summit.

:03:59.:04:01.

Snake Pass near Sheffield was also closed.

:04:02.:04:05.

Well, the majority of this wintry weather is really

:04:06.:04:18.

Elsewhere, a largely dry picture by dawn.

:04:19.:04:21.

We're going to see some hill fog, and that may struggle to clear first

:04:22.:04:26.

But with all this cloud, temperatures won't drop quite

:04:27.:04:30.

as low, and I doubt we'll see any frost.

:04:31.:04:32.

But it will be a cloudy, cold and windy start

:04:33.:04:34.

We should see some breaks and some brighter spells

:04:35.:04:38.

developing as we make our way through the course of the day,

:04:39.:04:41.

but nothing till later in the afternoon, and it's

:04:42.:04:43.

Air temperatures might say four, five, six, but if you factor in this

:04:44.:04:48.

brisk easterly breeze really affecting the coast and exposed

:04:49.:04:50.

hills, it's going to feel bitterly cold indeed.

:04:51.:04:52.

By the time we reach Wednesday, though, temperatures will be up

:04:53.:04:55.

That's all we've got time for. Have a great week ahead. Goodbye.

:04:56.:05:10.

I'm sure most of us are glad to see the back of this weekend. It's been

:05:11.:05:16.

cold, bleak and at times wintry. It provided some beautiful weather

:05:17.:05:22.

Watchers photos, like Sheffield earlier today. I suspect some

:05:23.:05:23.
