Grab a copy of this week's Press to read some of the tributes that have poured in for a Dewsbury teenager who died in a car crash on the island of Crete.

Luke Hall, an apprentice builder from Dewsbury Moor, was a passenger in a soft-top 4x4 when it crashed into a wall and careered into a field following a night out in the resort of Malia in the early hours of Monday morning.

Elsewhere, a man from Dewsbury and a woman from Mirfield were arrested following a hit-and-run motorway crash in which a 12-year-old girl was killed.

The district's two MPs have both supported Labour's announcement this week that their party would back 'Remain' in any referendum called on a Conservative Brexit deal, and read the story of a local dad who is calling on more people to become foster carers – after he did so himself last year.

You may have noticed that the outside of Batley Railway Station is adorned with scores of huge red flags – we've got the lovely tale as to why.

And take a look at our lovely photos from Cleckheaton Folk Festival last weekend.

In sport, Lee Greenwood believes that his Dewsbury side have turned a corner after last week's crucial win over Barrow.

Batley are now under pressure after a five-match losing run, and host York in a big game this weekend.

Dewsbury Moor are finally off the bottom of their NCL division as their revival continues, but Shaw Cross sunk to the foot of their league and face a vital match this week.

Jordan Yates made his pro boxing debut last weekend, and came away with an entertaining win in Bradford.

In the Bradford Cricket League, Batley are in form and face struggling Ossett in a derby this weekend, while it is crunch time for Hanging Heaton if they want to win any silverware this season.

And in football, Ossett United are two from two in pre-season ahead of the visit of Premier League side Sheffield United to Ingfield on Saturday.
