THIS WEEK'S EDITION:

Issue 708

IN THIS week's Press, a development in Mirfield has been broadly welcomed – the first one in months not to cause outrage in the town.

An Asda supermarket and various housing schemes upset residents, but Lidl's move for the same vacant site Asda wanted has so far not sparked major controversy.

The town council came out in favour after a private briefing was followed by a public consultation event. Find out why in the paper.

Elsewhere, a strike involving Dewsbury District Hospital workers has seen health chiefs enter into compromise talks with union officials about safe staffing levels.

Read the story of trophy-winning rugby league player turned First World War soldier who died in the same week as his brother and father, all from flu.

And find out how a Dewsbury man convicted of a terrrorism offence claimed notes about mujahideen training exercises were part of his keep-fit regime.

In sport this week, fans' favourite Danny Maun has rejoined Batley Bulldogs, this time as a coach following two previous stints as a player at Mount Pleasant.

And Dewsbury Rams have revealed who their new kit manufacturer will be for 2016.

Elsewhere Shaw Cross Sharks secured their place in the National Conference League Division One semi-final, where they host York Acorn this weekend.

In rugby union Cleckheaton lost on the road once again in their final outing of October.

And in cricket the long-awaited merger between the Bradford and Cetral Yorkshire League's has been finalised.

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