THIS WEEK'S EDITION:

Issue 710

In The Press this week: Read the heart-warming tale of the Liversedge woman who twice beat leukaemia and is now up for a national award.

Chantel Ratciffe, a GP who works at a surgery in Batley, planned her own funeral when she realised the chances of a bone marrow transplant were slim due to her ethnicity.

But a donor was found and Chantel later joined a campaign which aims to encourage more black people join a transplant register.

Elsewhere, Kirklees Council refused to say how much of taxpayers' money was lost due to a Muslim burial scandal in Dewsbury.

The authority would not divulge figures, or say if anyone was disciplined over the affair, in response to a Freedom of Information request from The Press.

Meet the Batley D-Day veteran who was presented with France's highest honour on Remembrance Sunday.

Playing fields abandoned in Mirfield could be brought back into use as Kirklees Council look set to do u-turn on their controversial grass cutting policy.

In sport, Lee Mitchell has left Batley Bulldogs with a year still remaining on his contract. Find out why in The Press.

Dewsbury Rams have also said goodbye to one of their players this week.

Full-back Kieran Hyde, 26, is joining Swinton Lions ahead of the 2016 Championship campaign.

Elsewhere Dewsbury boxer Adeeb Ajmal is celebrating a recent run of form with the knowledge he has been picked to represent Yorkshire.

Liversedge's struggles this season continue after they were knocked out of the West Riding County Cup by Thackley.

They hope to bounce back, at home, against Retford this Saturday, November 14 (3pm).

Cleckheaton RU didn't fair much better in their latest league game, narrowly losing to Sheffield.

They look to find their third win of the season when they welcome out-of-form Stockport to Moorend this Saturday.

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