THIS WEEK'S EDITION:

Issue 690

In The Press this week: Meet the nine-year-old boy from Heckmondwike who was treated successfully for a brain tumour, thanks partly to his rugby coach.

Doctors had already dismissed a lump on the head of Eddie Watson as a cyst when Dewsbuy Moor coach Jed Beety patted him on the head for playing well.

His concern and fears the lump had grown prompted mum Sam Dawson to seek a second opinion - and it turned out to be a tumour the size of an orange.

Tough guy Eddie is already back playing rugby just weeks after successful surgery and now has a titanium plate where part of his skull was removed.

Elsewhere, we have two exclusives on the Dewsbury suicide bombing, including a first interview with a newly-elected councillor who grew up in Savile Town.

In another exclusive we report on sex offenders from Ravensthorpe and Hanging Heaton who abused two girls.

A demolition order is being sought for a derelict factory in Gomersal which could land the owner with a bill from taxpayers for up to £35,000.

And read about Max Lemon, the Mirfield comic raising thousands for Kirkwood Hospice with a series of shows featuring zany routines, magic and music.

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