    BBC Local Live, Leeds

    That's all for our live coverage today. Thanks for being with us and we'll be back from 08:00 on Tuesday for the latest news, sport, travel and weather from across West Yorkshire.

    For those of you, like me, about to break their first fast tonight as part of Ramadan...the sun sets at 9:32pm give or take a few minutes depending on where you are in West Yorkshire.

    So that's the time you can eat! 

    Fasting is traditionally broken with dates like these... but the best bit is you just eat whatever you fancy! Fish finger sandwich for me thanks!

  12. West Yorkshire Crime Commissioner says an enquiry into Orgreave would be 'quite personal'

    Shahid Hussain

    BBC Local Live, Leeds

    West Yorkshire's Police Crime Commissioner has already said he'd support a full enquiry into the events at Orgreave.

    The so-called Battle of Orgreave is the confrontation that took place in 1984 between police and picketing miners at a British Steel Corporation coking plant in South Yorkshire.  

    Mark Burns-Williamson said that an enquiry would be "quite personal".

    Mark Burns-Williamson
    Quote Message: This is quite personal to me as many of my friends were miners on the picket lines at the time and so I absolutely support a thorough inquiry into what happened at Orgreave which I believe goes much further than just the role of police to the Government of the day. We need to get to the truth of what happened." from Mark Burns-Williamson West Yorkshire Police Crime Commissioner

  14. Ramadan Day One (for most Muslims)

    Shahid Hussain

    BBC Local Live, Leeds

    Well it's Day One of Ramadan for me today anyway! In short, it's no food or drink between sunrise and sunset for 30 days. So that's nil by mouth for around 18 hours at the moment.

    The idea is, as a Muslim, it helps you reflect on your religion, be an all round charitable good egg and think of those less fortunate than you.

    I've been fasting for quite a few years now so the endurance becomes easier! 

    So for all those fasting -Ramadan Mubarak and here's my favourite Ramadan tweet today!
