THIS WEEK'S EDITION:

Issue 781

This week in The Press, read about a sickening attack which saw a man beaten with baseball bats in Dewsbury town centre.

The victim was dragged from his car in broad daylight and set upon by a group of men in the middle of the street.

Local politicians and religious groups have reacted to Wednesday's terror attack in London, with both our MPs speaking about their experiences in the capital.

Also read the reaction to the news that every school in our district could be set to lose funding and a charity rugby game between men and women raised vital funds for a terminally-ill five-year-old.

Plus, the Milk Tray Man has been in our district, and ANOTHER business in Birstall has been raided by thieves.

In sport, Batley boss Matt Diskin believes that his players have the quality to replicate the team’s success from last season – but they must add consistency after a stuttering start.

Glenn Morrison hopes that Dewsbury’s Challenge Cup win over Newcastle Thunder can prove to be a springboard as his side look to get their Championship campaign off the mark, plus we have a preview of the local cricket season and round-ups of all the district's football and amateur RL action.

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