  3. Yorkshire's wet Wednesday weather

    Outbreaks of rain, heavy at times, especially over the hills will give a decidedly wet day.

    Also feeling cool as windy conditions develop, especially along the coast and across high ground.


    The wet and windy conditions will continue overnight, although the rain may become lighter and more intermittent in the early hours with winds moderating.

  4. Hillsborough disaster: Charges decision due

    A decision on whether individuals and organisations will face criminal charges over the Hillsborough disaster will be announced later.


    The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) will reveal its intentions at a meeting with victims' relatives at 11:00 this morning.

    Ninety-six football fans were fatally injured in the 1989 stadium disaster.

    Margaret Aspinall, whose 18-year-old son died, said: "Hopefully this is the journey to the end, completely, of Hillsborough."

    Last year, new inquests into the disaster in Sheffield concluded the fans had been unlawfully killed.

    In January, files of evidence relating to 23 suspects were referred to the CPS to decide whether charges should be brought.

    BBC Local Live, Yorkshire

    Hello and welcome to BBC Local Live in Yorkshire on Wednesday 28 June 2017.

    We'll be with you throughout the day with all the latest news, sport, travel and weather updates.

    I'm sure we'll hear plenty about the rain today, so rather than start with a wet vista, I thought this cracking BBC Weather Watcher pic of a sun halo over Sheffield, would provide a more optimistic start to the day.
