    A grant of £325,000 has been given to the team trying to bring Bradford's old Odeon back to life.

    The West Yorkshire Combined Authority says it's been made possible by the news that the NEC Group will run it when it becomes a live music venue.

    Protesters are gathering again this morning at the gates of North Yorkshire's fracking site.

    The demonstrators, who held a candlelit vigil last night, say they'll keep a daily 12-hour watch outside the site in Kirby Misperton in Ryedale.

    The company which owns the site, Third Energy, says fracking is safe and will start work by the end of the year.

    North Yorkshire Police say they'll talk to protesters, to explain what's safe and acceptable.

    But activist Eddie Thornton, who's from Pickering, says it's about who puts the most boots on the ground:
