THIS WEEK'S EDITION:

Issue 764

In The Press this week, we have extensive coverage of Thomas Mair's conviction for the murder of Jo Cox.

Danny Lockwood reports from the Old Bailey where this week, the MP's killer was handed a full life sentence after he was found guilty of murdering the 41-year-old in Birstall.

The judge at the Central Criminal Court paid tribute to Mrs Cox's family who have been in attendance throughout the trial and also condemned the right-wing fanatic who did not speak throughout his trial.

Also in this week's paper, the chief executive of Kirklees Council is set to step down after more than six years in the role.

A Cleckheaton care home remains in special measures and a couple have been spared prison after a Dewsbury town centre attack.

In sport this week, Batley Bulldogs' latest signing Dane Manning talks openly about his move from Championship rivals Halifax in an interview with The Press.

Elsewhere, Dewsbury Rams head coach Glenn Morrison talks about his admiration for chairman Mark Sawyer and the way in which he finances the club.

In amateur rugby league, Jake Wilson was a big winner at Thornhill Trojans' end-of-season presentation night. Find out who won what in this week's paper.

Elsewhere, Cleckheaton RUFC found a rare win ahead of a tough home clash against League Three North's unbeaten leaders Huddersfield this weekend (Sat, 2.15pm), and don't forget to read Mike Smith's latest tips for all the weekend's racing.

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