THIS WEEK'S EDITION:

Issue 689

In The Press this week: We have all the latest on Dewsbury's 17-year-old suicide bomber – including plans by the English Defence League to protest in Savile Town.

MP Paula Sherriff called for Dewsbury to pick itself up off the mat while councilors insisted the town has bounced back before and can do so again.

Read Danny Lockwood's verdict on a week that brought the world's media here for the wrong reasons. It is an Ed Lines column you will not want to miss.

The atrocity perpetrated by Talha Asmal is not the only news this week. Demolition of large parts of Dewsbury's hospital is on course after a £22m contract was awarded.

A dad from Ravensthorpe refused a meeting with health bosses over the death of his disabled son due to being too grief stricken.

Calls were made for a derelict Gomersal factory to be pulled down after arsonists struck again while an RSPB activist in the village backed a new grass cutting regime.

That might raise eyebrows in Mirfield - where parks being cut less often has caused uproar. Also in Mirfield campaigners have made a film objecting to new homes.

Also read part two of our exclusive interview with Paula Sherriff, who in the wake of the suicide bomb received death threats.

It's all in The Press, the only newspaper which has North Kirklees covered.
