    Jericho Keys

    Reporter, BBC Radio York

    This morning I was up in Bedale to meet dance teacher, Alan Beattie.

    Nothing unusual in that you may think until you realise that Alan's in his 80s and is more sprightly than a Twentysomething like me!!

    In a few weeks he'll be performing solo at the UK's biggest dance event - Move It , so I went along to see if he could give me any tips to make me more of a twinkle-toed hipshaker and less of a clodhopping lump!:

    Two men have broken into a Leeds house and threatened a woman as her children played downstairs. 


    It happened in Oakwood yesterday morning when the men came into the house on Hollin Hill Avenue through a window. 

    They told two children who were playing downstairs to be quiet and then went upstairs where they held a knife to their mother's throat and forced her to open a safe.

    The men left with some high-value Asian gold jewellery and were caught on camera (above).
