THIS WEEK'S EDITION:

Issue 766

In this week's edition of The Press, we reveal the shocking number of diverts to Dewsbury Hospital’s under-threat A&E department.

Following a Freedom of Information request by The Press, figures from Mid-Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust showed that accident and emergency patients were diverted from Pinderfields Hospital to Dewsbury 61 times in the last 12 months – once for a period of 13-and-a-half-hours.

Questions have been asked in Parliament this week following the revelation.

Some of the world’s top cyclists will be passing through the district next year during the Tour de Yorkshire.

North Kirklees will feature on the third day of the race – find out where you need to stand for the best view.

Four men have been jailed after carrying out an audacious ram raid at an electrical store in Dewsbury where one of them worked, and you can read the emotional story of a mother's fight to reclaim her son's reputation following his untimely death.

In sport, Dewsbury Rams have signed prop Jode Sheriffe, and Glenn Morrison's Rams squad have enjoyed a successful team bonding exercise at RAF Cranwell.

Meanwhile at Batley Bulldogs head coach Matt Diskin has signalled he will experiment in the upcoming Boxing Day derby with Dewsbury and has confirmed several key names will be missing the game through injury.

Elsewhere Liversedge lost further ground in the NCEL Premier following defeat to Handsworth Parramore and National League Three North outfit Cleckheaton RUFC slip further into trouble following a heavy loss at the hands of Wirral.

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