  4. UKIP MEP: BBC ambushed me over wind farm

    Earlier we told you how UKIP MEP William Dartmouth denied involvement in a Yorkshire wind farm in a 2014 BBC interview.

    Here's his response: "Had I been given proper notice of your intention to ask me about this, all this could have been made clear, but, as it was, the interviewer broke BBC Guidelines in order to ambush me - and we were at cross purposes.  

    "In conclusion, during the period of time you have referred to, there are and were no wind turbines on the land.  

    "I did not own the land when asked on the programme in 2014 nor do I own the land now. 

    "I had no financial interest in the unsuccessful application made in 2014 for installing wind turbines and in fact lodged my opposition to the application."

    A South American mara born in Yorkshire has made a miracle recovery after a zoo keeper took him in when it was abandoned by its mother.

    Jack, who looks like a mix between a rabbit and a small deer, was born three weeks ago on the coldest day of the year.

    When the keepers at Yorkshire Wildlife Park, near Doncaster, realised he had just minutes to live, they wrapped him in tea towels and whisked him away to warm up under a heat lamp.

  15. Large funeral procession expected to cause York traffic disruption

    Andrew Barton

    BBC Local Live, Yorkshire

    A warning of four hours of traffic disruption in York tomorrow has been issued by the City of York Council.

    The delays are expected between James Street and Fulford between the hours of 11:00 and 15:00.

    This is due to a large funeral procession travelling along this route. 

    St Oswald's

    The council say "very heavy traffic levels are likely to occur in the St Oswalds Church area on Fulford Road during the funeral and when the procession moves on to Fulford Cemetery off Fordlands Road."

    Traffic signal timings will be amended to minimise disruption where possible but the council say "motorists are advised to use alternative routes if possible and allow more time for their journeys in the area."
