THIS WEEK'S EDITION:

Issue 767

This week in The Press, a man has died of a suspected drug overdose while on a night out in Batley.

The father-of-two in his 20s had been out with friends on Saturday night but was rushed to Dewsbury Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

A man has also been jailed for life for the rape of two women - one of who was only 15 years old at the time.

Karen Matthews, the mother who kidnapped her own daughter, has reportedly found God, and Liversedge FC have pledged to donate 50 per cent of their gate receipts from their boxing day match against Athersley Recreation to the fund set up for terminally ill youngster Zack Barrett.

In sport, Glenn Morrison has praised Dewsbury Rams' new conditioner and Batley Bulldogs boss Matt Diskin is impressed with his side's camaraderie.

Meanwhile Hanging Heaton remain one point clear of rivals Ossett Trinity Tigers in the Winter Pennine League Division Two, Liversedge FC climbed to sixth in the NCEL Premier Division and Cleckheaton RUFC also eased their relegation fears with victory over Stockport in National League Three North.

Also, don't forget to keep up to date with the progress of our women's football sides and get 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.
