Eddie Jones, about to win the Six Nations
The latest phase of a multi-million-pound project
to redevelop Barnsley opened today.
The Market Parade is a temporary home for traders during work
to revitalise the town centre.
It's hoped the new facilities will boost the local economy.
Abi Jaiyeola reports.
A fanfare to celebrate the latest stage in
the transformation of Barnsley -
the official opening of Market Parade.
It's all part of the Better Barnsley ?120 million scheme
which we launched on Wednesday.
We are bringing in Cineworld and Superbowl,
and rejuvenating the market.
The market is right at the heart of the scheme in Barnsley.
The temporary hall is now home to 73 stalls and four cafes.
Traders moved out of the old market hall, which will be redeveloped.
There had been some concerns about these plans from nearby local
businesses, who have had to close and move during the works,
but today stallholders are feeling positive.
Around here, it was looking old and shabby.
We've come in here now, and I'm quite happy with it.
I think they've made a decent job of it.
The setting is nice. The people are nice.
My customers have come back. Everything is OK.
We have been waiting for it for a long time.
Things have got a bit stagnant.
Hopefully when we are in there everything will improve.
The hope is that revamping the area will encourage more shoppers
to spend more shoppers to spend their money
and stimulate the local economy.
I think it's lovely and I can't wait for Barnsley to be finished.
It's going to be so much nicer.
I'm really, really delighted.
It looks OK for now.
Like I say, it's the first time I've been in, like, so...
But everything looks tidy and clean for a change.
It's needed this to give it a lift, so hopefully it will give the rest
of the town a lift as well.
Today is another step towards a better Barnsley.
As development continues, traders and shoppers are all keen
to see the town flourish.

Residents in Ingleton in North Yorkshire have been allowed
to return home after a fire.
Several properties were evacuated as a precaution last night
as Blue Line Auto Logistics went up in flames.
No-one was hurt and roads in the area are now back to normal.
A memorial's been unveiled at a school in Leeds to mark
the sacrifice made by Indian soldiers in both World Wars.
More than a million Indian soldiers served in World War one,
and over 74,000 died.
The statue commemorates Captain Ishar Singh,
who was the first Sikh to be awarded the Victoria Cross.
He showed great valour by being injured, and at the same
time as being injured he defended medical officers who came
to treat those soldiers that were wounded on the battlefield,
and he had taken many body wounds to the chest himself.
Onto the football, Sheffield Wednesday lost 2-0 at Aston Villa.
Barnsley conceded a late goal to draw with Ipswich.
Huddersfield opened up a five-point gap over Leeds,
after they beat Brentford, and Leeds were held at home to QPR.
Rotherham lost at Wolves.
Speaking in the last few minute, the Leeds head coach
was disappointed with a point.
Yeah, the positives are it's a clean sheet and a point,
but there's no excuses.
We never did enough in the game to win that game.
In League One, Chesterfield drew 1-1 with Shrewsbury.
Bradford are up to fourth after a two-win at Coventry.
Doncaster remain four points clear in League two after a 2-0
win against Cheltenham.
Sheffield's Nick Matthew is to donate the prize money
from his latest victory to help a boy with a brain tumour.
Matthew won the Canary Wharf Classic, a record sixth
victory in the event.
He'll give ?10,000 to 11-year-old Sumner Malik, a keen squash player
who needs expensive treatment.
In badminton, Leeds pair Chris and Gabby Adcock
suffered terrible luck, missing out on the first British
place in an All England Badminton Championship final for a decade.
Chris suffered a broken string when they held match point.
They eventually lost to the fifth seeds from China.
Now let's take a look at the weather.
Well, very limited brightness today,
perhaps only from our spring flowers,
and they might be grateful for what is to come tonight -
an area of rain which is working its way in from the west.
There will be some heavy bursts in there as well,
and we will get a few breaks further south,
but temperatures holding up under that cloud and rain,
lows of nine or ten Celsius.
For tomorrow, we start off with the rain steadily
marching its way eastwards.
There will be a slice of something bright through the day,
and perhaps some sunshine at times.
Temperatures up to 13 Celsius as well,
so it's staying lovely and mild, and we've got some bright spells
to start the working week.
That's it from us.
