Hello, welcome to Sunday's Look North.

:00:00.:00:00.

It was described as a once in a lifetime event.

:00:07.:00:09.

Four trains from four different eras - including

:00:10.:00:11.

the world-famous Flying Scotsman - travelling side-by-side

:00:12.:00:13.

along the East Coast mainline in North Yorkshire.

:00:14.:00:16.

Thousands of people lined the route to watch.

:00:17.:00:19.

Look North's Tom Ingall was the only reporter on board.

:00:20.:00:24.

Well, this is something I never thought I'd be able to do -

:00:25.:00:28.

stand in the middle of the East Coast Mainline

:00:29.:00:30.

with four generations of motor power lined up on display.

:00:31.:00:34.

It's a glorious day, so many people have come out to see it,

:00:35.:00:37.

but this is the best view in the house.

:00:38.:00:40.

Four... Three...

:00:41.:00:47.

Two... One...

:00:48.:00:49.

At first light, this remarkable piece of railway theatre began.

:00:50.:00:53.

Flying Scotsman, first locomotive to officially reach 100mph,

:00:54.:00:58.

a brand-new Azuma train, which will make a debut

:00:59.:01:00.

An InterCity Electric, currently plying between London,

:01:01.:01:08.

York and Edinburgh, and a classic high-speed train from the '70s,

:01:09.:01:10.

running in parallel along a section of the East Coast Mainline.

:01:11.:01:13.

I've got a virtual marker on the side of the train, and I'm

:01:14.:01:17.

Along the line, stops were made for the crowds of onlookers

:01:18.:01:21.

Meanwhile, at York station, just down the line, thousands

:01:22.:01:27.

were waiting for their chance to see history unfolding.

:01:28.:01:33.

There's not been anything remotely like it since the 1930s.

:01:34.:01:35.

I don't think you're going to see anything like it again

:01:36.:01:38.

I don't think you're going to see anything like it

:01:39.:01:40.

It's a really special day for everyone to be able to be out

:01:41.:01:45.

To get these four trains, to close the East Coast Mainline,

:01:46.:01:48.

firstly, and to get these four trains on, or moving

:01:49.:01:51.

firstly, and to get these four trains on, all moving

:01:52.:01:53.

in the same direction for the first time ever,

:01:54.:01:55.

never to be repeated, it's truly a piece of history.

:01:56.:01:58.

A phenomenal amount of planning from all the four partner

:01:59.:02:00.

It's unlikely this sort of motor power parade will happen

:02:01.:02:04.

Truly a moment for the railways and fair enthusiasts to relish.

:02:05.:02:07.

Truly a moment for the railways and their enthusiasts to relish.

:02:08.:02:09.

An under-17s football tournament has been held in Leeds

:02:10.:02:11.

to raise awareness about knife crime.

:02:12.:02:13.

It was also organised to celebrate the life of 16-year-old

:02:14.:02:15.

Irfan Waheed, who was fatally stabbed in Harehills.

:02:16.:02:17.

A football tournament in Leeds for under-17s,

:02:18.:02:23.

but they are not just here to compete, they are

:02:24.:02:26.

Irfan Waheed died from a single stab wound to his chest.

:02:27.:02:34.

He's never had beef or anything with anyone, to be honest.

:02:35.:02:42.

He's told me never go on the wrong path.

:02:43.:02:50.

He was always active. Always playing football.

:02:51.:02:52.

A good footballer, and I think if he was here today,

:02:53.:02:57.

he could have changed people's lives.

:02:58.:03:00.

Irfan was attacked in broad daylight in Harehills Lane in February.

:03:01.:03:05.

His death was one of three fatalities within the area

:03:06.:03:08.

Playing football to remember Irfan. But today's not just about sport.

:03:09.:03:16.

They're sending out a clear message that knives and guns aren't

:03:17.:03:21.

Today's event was organised by Leeds Street Team,

:03:22.:03:27.

community volunteers who want to end street crime.

:03:28.:03:31.

You might carry a knife with no intention to hurt anyone.

:03:32.:03:34.

It could end up in devastation, because in the heat of the moment,

:03:35.:03:38.

There's people out there carrying a knife, they need to drop it,

:03:39.:03:46.

because look, people that have lost their son, lost their brother,

:03:47.:03:49.

lost their friend, lost their nephew.

:03:50.:03:50.

An investigation's underway after a body was found close

:03:51.:03:55.

Transport police and paramedics were called to the line

:03:56.:04:00.

close to the Denaby Main crossing this morning.

:04:01.:04:03.

Services between Swinton and Doncaster were disrupted

:04:04.:04:05.

The leader of the Women's Equality Party Sophie Walker

:04:06.:04:11.

says she'll stand against the Conservative MP

:04:12.:04:13.

for Shipley - Philip Davies - in the general election.

:04:14.:04:15.

Mr Davies has been an advocate for 'male' rights

:04:16.:04:19.

and an outspoken critic of what he describes

:04:20.:04:21.

He says he welcomes his rival "parachuting herself" into the seat

:04:22.:04:26.

In Super League, just one result for you.

:04:27.:04:32.

Hull FC beat league leaders Castleford by 26 points to 24,

:04:33.:04:36.

despite playing the final hour with 12 men.

:04:37.:04:40.

In cricket, Day 3 of Yorkshire taking on Hampshire

:04:41.:04:43.

It ended with Yorkshire 46 runs behind.

:04:44.:04:46.

But a strong performance from Gary Ballance has given them

:04:47.:04:50.

a fighting chance of escaping from this match with a draw.

:04:51.:04:55.

Owain says it's getting chilly this week.

:04:56.:05:05.
