Patients in Doncaster have been left without a GP due to inadequate out-of hours services, according to an investigation by a health magazine.
Freedom of Information data obtained by Pulse show nurses and paramedics had to cover a population of 300,000 patients on three occasions.
As a doctor I'm furious. It feels like you're practising medicine with your hands tied."
Yes, I know we're going on about it a bit, but it's a big event!
Look at all of those people crossing Tadcaster Bridge for the first time in 13 months, incredible scenes.
And again, back to the reopening of Tadcaster Bridge.
Here's MP Nigel Adam's "action shot" of the ribbon being cut to signal the bridge's open for business once again:
Police are searching for a man who is wanted in connection with a burglary at the home of an elderly man with dementia in Leeds.
A man called at the home of the victim and convinced him he owed him money before being given an amount of cash.
The incident happened in Westfield Lane, Kippax, on 8 November last year.
Not what you want to hear on a Friday night:
I'm not making any puns about this. It's going to make some people's Friday commute home a bit of a nightmare.
I wouldn't want to milk it.
A bid to give families greater control over the affairs of missing people has cleared a major hurdle in the Commons.
Tory MP Kevin Hollinrake is leading efforts to introduce "Claudia's Law" in memory of Claudia Lawrence, who disappeared on her way to work at the University of York in March 2009.
Mr Hollinrake brought forward draft legislation called the Guardianship (Missing Persons) Bill.
Peter Lawrence, Claudia's father, was told he was unable to manage the financial affairs of his daughter.
Mr Hollinrake's Bill received an unopposed second reading in the Commons and it will now proceed to committee stage.
Just back to the opening of Tadcaster Bridge again, and here are the first few cars to travel over it.
The driver of that Merc looks a little nervous...
A support centre for refugees in Armley could close because of lack of funding.
The Meeting Point was set up by Christ Church in 2003 to help the large numbers of refugees and asylum seekers who were moving into the parish but were feeling isolated.
Staff at the centre say they helped almost 300 people last year, providing hot food, clothing, food parcels and English classes.
But now the project is facing a serious funding crisis and possible closure:
If sufficient funds aren’t secured within the next six months, the project will regrettably be forced to close."

The average full-time worker in the Yorkshire and Humber region now needs a staggering pay rise of 64% just to afford a mortgage on a typical home in the region.
That's according to a new report from the National Housing Federation which states that those people earning less than £39,811 a year are now priced out of buying the average home in the area.
Despite regional house prices being lower than the national average, the combination of low wages, an above-average unemployment rate and job insecurity is resulting in an acute housing crisis in the area.
The average home in the area costs £174,171 – over seven times the average yearly income of £24,284.
The report also mentions the shortfall of new homes in recent years as a factor. Between 2011 and 2015, there were over 37,000 too few homes built across the region to keep up with demand.
Bradford City fans are anticipating a rush of goals from their new striker, Charlie Wyke.
Wyke scored 18 goals for Carlisle United this season before moving to City this week for an undisclosed fee.
Overall, he scored 32 league goals in 77 league games for the Cumbrians.
Wyke, 24, started his career at hometown club Middlesbrough but never made an appearance for the Teessiders, going out on loan several times before signing permanently for Carlisle in 2015.
Bradford City manager Stuart McCall says he has all the attributes to be a big success at Valley Parade:
Tadcaster's two halves have been reunited today as the bridge that links both sides of the town has been reopened after 13 months.
It's a proud day for the town's mayor:
This is fantastic. Look at these sheer numbers. Hundreds of schoolchildren, members of public from miles around. This town has been split in two for too long."
Hundreds have walked across the newly-reopened Tadcaster Bridge, which the public are allowed to use again after it was severely damaged in the 2015 Christmas floods.
Led by local MP Nigel Adams and Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government Sajid Javid, people from the town made their first journey over it in 13 months:
If you were trying to get home from the centre of Leeds last night, you'll know that feeling of going nowhere fast.
The city was at gridlock following several incidents on the roads, meaning for thousands of people their journey home was delayed by at least an hour.
Leeds City Council say three separate incidents caused the problem.
- A coach fire on the M1 that caused the police to fully close two lanes of the motorway
- A broken-down lorry between junction 44 (Leeds South) and junction 43 (Belle Isle), where the M621 joins the motorway.
- A broken-down vehicle on the M1 exit slip road at J40 (Ossett).
We are actively exploring new ways to improve day-to-day traffic flow and public transport in Leeds to improve the transport network.”
Were you stuck in it? Can you see a way to improve the city's transport?
Drop us a line and tell us.
If you're heading out on the A1 in South Yorkshire, then expect some delays.
One lane's blocked and traffic's slow on the A1(M) Northbound at Junction 37 because of an accident.
Just look at all of those people crossing the newly-opened Tadcaster Bridge!
What better way to test out the strength of a new bridge than to drive a great big bus over it!
And after 13 months, Tadcaster Bridge reopens as Nigel Adams, the town's MP, cuts the ribbon!
Back to the exciting events at Tadcaster Bridge.
That white line is getting bigger and bigger, it won't be long now.
We also hear the ribbon is being put in place and some men in hard hats have been spotted moving into place.
It's been more than a year since the bridge collapsed under the weight of the flood water of Christmas 2015, so how do people there feel about the wait?
It's been 13 months - another hour's not going to matter!"
A man is due to appear in court charged with murder following the shooting of a man in Leeds.
Jaydn Manners, 23, of Louis Street, Chapeltown, is due to appear at Leeds Magistrates' Court tomorrow charged with the murder of Raheem Wilks in Harehills last Thursday.
A 19-year-old woman who was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder and assisting an offender has been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
A 31-year-old woman who was arrested at an address in Castleford yesterday on suspicion of conspiracy to murder remains in custody.
Has watching paint dry ever been so absorbing?
We are hearing there's a delay in opening the bridge.
It was due to open at 14:00, but as you'll have realised, that time has now passed.
We understand it's down to engineers waiting to paint the white lines.
Here's a picture from on the actual bridge, doesn't it look neat!
The tarmac has been laid, the lines have been painted and the stones have been put in place.
Watch live as the Tadcaster Bridge reopens:
Plans to axe more than 100 jobs at Wakefield Council have been revealed in a bid to cut spending by almost £27m.
The frequency of street cleaning and the number of children's play areas will also be cut under the Labour-run authority's plans.
It said its budget has reduced by £144m since 2011 and it must cut a further 15.4m by 2018 and find £11.5m for social care over the same period.
A spokesman said it would have a "major impact on nearly all council services".

I'm out in Tadcaster where it's just a short time before the town is properly reunited once again for the first time since December 2015.
It's been divided ever since the bridge here partially collapsed on 29 December after heavy flooding.
Since then anyone wanting to drive from one side of the town to the other has faced an 18-mile round trip.
Final work's been carried out this morning to get it ready.
I never thought I'd end up reporting the excitement of people staring at a road surface!:

Tick tock, tick tock...
The clock's counting down to 14:00 when Tadcaster Bridge is due to be officially opened.
But will it be ready on time? That's the big question as these contractors lay down the last of the tarmac on the road across the bridge:
