THIS WEEK'S EDITION:

Issue 734

This week, we report on a woman from Mirfield with two young grandchildren who is stuck in an immigration nightmare more than 6,000 miles from home.

Pulsuk Kulpol, 56, is a Thai national who returned to her homeland in 2009 after living in the UK for 27 years.

She has wanted to come back ever since her marriage broke down in 2011 - but has lost her right to be here having been out of the country for more than two years.

Elsewhere, we exclusively reveal hospital outpatient care for patients with neurological conditions is being moved outside of the area.

A DJ from Thornhill is thought to be the first outside North America to win a prestigous country music award.

We also have an exclusive council election preview from the keenly-anticipated battle in Mirfield between two well-known councillors.

And a letter from the parents of Dewsbury's Titanic hero Wallace Hartley, which called his employers "vindictive", was sold at an auction for £27,000.

In sport, Batley Bulldogs have signed Callum Casey and Dave Peterson to strengthen their squad ahead of their daunting trip to Leigh.

Dewsbury, meanwhile, had to call upon the ill Dale Morton ahead of their Halifax clash due to injuries. Morrson is struggling to put a 19-man squad together for his side's trip to face Sheffield.

Mirfield Stags sealed the Pennine League Championship title with a win over Queensbury on Wednesday night, while our National Conference sides have had mixed fortunes in their last round of fixtures.

Shaw Cross won their second game in a row in Division One, Dewsbury Celtic found their first win in Division Two and in the same division Thornhill Trojans missed out on a chance to go top, losing to leaders Hunslet Club Parkside.

Elsewhere, Dewsbury Moor lost in Division Three.

In Rugby Union Cleckheaton rounded of their season with defeat to Firwood Waterloo but Liversedge FC won to climb out of the relegation zone in the Notrthern Counties East League Premier for the first time this year.

And finally the cricket season is underway, find out how our local sides are doing in our weekly round-up.

It's all in The Press – give us a right good read!
