  2. Listen: Sheffield man prompts mental health debate in Parliament

    A debate's due to be held in Parliament later discussing whether mental health education should be compulsory in schools.

    It follows a petition set up by Sheffield man Adam Shaw, who founded the The Shaw Mind Foundation after suffering mental health issues himself.

  4. 'Treatment delayed' for Manchester Attack victims - Bradford couple

    A couple from West Yorkshire who were caught up in the Manchester Arena bombing say many of the most seriously wounded victims had to wait for over an hour before receiving expert medical treatment.

    Phil and Kim Dick

    Twenty-two people were killed and 512 injured by suicide bomber Salman Abedi at an Ariana Grande concert on 22 May.

    Phil and Kim Dick, from Bradford, were in the arena foyer at the time of the explosion, waiting for their daughter and granddaughter to come out of the concert.

    The couple told the BBC a young victim with "horrific" injuries collapsed in front of them.

    Mrs Dick said she sat with the girl, who survived, for more than an hour.

    "She could hardly walk. She was stumbling, bleeding from her arm and her mouth and her leg, and her hair was burnt," said Mrs Dick.

    "I just kept shouting: 'We need paramedics now'. And they [armed police] just said: 'We're just making sure there are no more bombs'."

    "There was just too much for just three paramedics to deal with," Mr Dick added.

  5. Rugby League World Cup: Huddersfield's Danny Brough thrown out

    Huddersfield Giants' Danny Brough has been sent home from the Rugby League World Cup after being deemed too drunk to board a flight.


    Brough is one of three players released from Scotland's Rugby League World Cup squad.

    He remained in Christchurch with Sam Brooks and Johnny Walker while the squad flew to Cairns for next week's final group game with Samoa.

    Scotland Rugby League chairman Keith Hogg said: "These players have not adhered to the standards of behaviour.

    "They will leave early a tournament it is a privilege to be involved in."
