Leeds's local TV channel has been launched on Freeview and cable on Thursday.

Made in Leeds is being screened on Freeview and on a local cable network.

The channel launched at 20:00 BST and follows the introduction of Sheffield Live in September.

Ofcom initially received 57 bids to run channels in the UK and a total of 19 licences were awarded. The first station began broadcasting in Grimsby last November.
