THIS WEEK'S EDITION:

Issue 755

This week in The Press, read about a major update in the Jo Cox murder trial.

It was this week revealed that Thomas Mair will not use medical evidence in his defence – prosecutors have said that the case will be based purely on factual evidence.

Mrs Cox's successor will be chosen this week as Labour revealed its shortlist for the party's candidacy in the upcoming election. As expected, former soap star Tracy Brabin has been named alongside Jane Thomas.

The candidate will be chosen in a hustings event tomorrow (Friday). Also this week, plans to carve Batley and Spen up in the boundary review have been met with opposition and read about the plans the new head teacher at Heckmondwike Grammar has for the school.

In sport, Batley coach Jon Kear gets set to take his side into battle one last time. Kear will leave Mount Pleasant after five years at the helm and he will be hoping to see the bulldogs pull off one more shock as they entertain Salford.

Dewsbury coach Glenn Morrison looks ahead to his side's Championship Shield quarter final clash with Bradford. He is hoping his side can go one better than last year, plus you can read about the retirement of Dewsbury boxer Gary Sykes.

It's all in The Press, the only paper that's got North Kirklees covered.
