    Weather presenter, BBC Look North

    Heavy showers tonight could cause difficult driving conditions with rain falling as snow over the higher ground.

    Ice will also be an issue pretty much anywhere as temperatures dip close to, if not below freezing -1C.

  4. Warning against council tax scammers in Bradford

    Bradford Council are warning residents to be aware of a Council Tax email scam doing the rounds.

    The letter is claiming to be about council tax refunds.

    The authority say that if you're in any doubt, then contact them on 01274 437 866

    Here's what the emails look like.

  6. Children in Need: They've made it

    We've been telling you about Look North presenters Harry Gration and Amy Garcia today.

    The pair have been on a 45-mile tandem ride around West Yorkshire to raise money for Children in Need.

    They've been battered by winds, soaked by rain and chilled by snow.

    But after hours in the saddle, they've made it to the end of their challenge.

    I think Harry's face says it all:
