Issue 733

In The Press this week: Four people injured in a Batley car smash were lucky to get out alive, a witnesss said as police appeals for help continue.

Rubble was left in the road after a wall was demolished by an impact on Healey Lane last Sunday night described as "more like an explosion" than a car crash.

Wedding dresses worth £10,000 were stolen in a rash of burglaries in Gomersal which spread to shops in Birkenshaw.

A pub in Birstall was saved from closure at the last-minute by a temporary landlord who proved so popular a petition was launched to get him to stay.

Volunters are wanted to return a Heckmondwike cemetery to its former glory before its rich history is lost forever.

We have a council election preview on the key seat of Dewsbury West - where the Green Party think they can pull off a shock win.

In sport this week, Dewsbury boss Glenn Morrison has been linked with the vacant top job at Bradford Bulls.

He faces a busy period, including preparing his Rams squad ahead of a tricky trip to Halifax on Sunday and the visit of Wigan in the last 16 of the Challenge Cup next month.

At Batley, Matt Diskin will succeed John Kear as head coach in 2017. Meanwhile, Kear is delighted to be hosting Catalans Dragons at Mount Pleasant in the Challenge Cup in May but will be without Brad Day for that game after he broke his thumb against Feathertsone.

He may be forced to sign players to cover his squad's mounting injury woes.

Cleckheaton RUFC guaranteed their survival in National League Three North following their third straight win, and Liversedge FC's draw in the Northern Counties East League Premier edges them closer to safety.

Plus the league cricket season gets underway in earnest this weekend – it's all in The Press, the only newspaper which has North Kirklees covered.
