    BBC Local Live, Yorkshire

    Three Yorkshire locations are to be part of a new government scheme designed to help prospects for young people.

    Doncaster, Bradford and Scarborough have been selected along with nine other towns and cites across the country, to receive help from the chief executive of the Education Endowment Foundation, Sir Kevan Collins

    Sir Kevan will be known as an "evidence champion" tasked with gathering information as to what does and does not work in a classroom environment.

    The Rotherham-born education minister Justine Greening made the announcement to try and combat what she called a "social mobility emergency".

    Ms Greening added that she hoped the project would help schools in these areas "improve standards" and would lead to a "plan that everyone can buy into at a local and the national level."

    Andy Burnham has been speaking to me at the "People's Powerhouse" conference which has been taking place in Doncaster today.

    In a speech, the Mayor of Greater Manchester warned that in the past developers have rushed up new buildings without serious consideration of the impact on communities where these sites were being built.

    He also urged council leaders across Yorkshire to sort out their devolution deals and stated that he felt delays in getting elected mayors in our region is holding back all of the north of England:

    Nick Wilmshurst

    BBC Local Live, Yorkshire

    We've all done silly things when we were young, and it's no different for our bovine friends.

    This is Daisy the cow (why are they always called Daisy?), she got stuck in some rocks in Holmfirth this morning:

    Daisy the cow

    The four-month-old Belgian Blue female calf got into trouble in woodland in a disused quarry after she wandered off from the rest of the herd in a field near Brow Lane.

    It's thought she'd been there overnight and was spotted by a dog walker.

    The fire service got there and began to remove the rocks, one of which weighed three tonnes, and Daisy was put in a harness and hoisted up.

    Quote Message: This kind of rescue is not ‘un-herd’ of but it was particularly challenging because of the tight spot Daisy had got herself into. from Chris Lawton West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue

    Daisy was fine and was soon back in her field munching on the grass with her bovine friends.
