IN this week's paper we have an exclusive on claims a man who disappeared from his Dewsbury home might have come to harm after a row with gangmasters.

Police though are still treating the case of Hungarian Tamas Fuchsz, 49, as a missing person enquiry despite concerns raised by sources who contacted us.

They fear Mr Fuchsz, employed at the Super Shine Car Wash in Heckmondwike, complained about the amount of wages taken off him by the figures who brought here to work.

Elsewhere, thieves who ripped stone slabs from a seating area at Mirfield's popular sunken garden, which was developed by charities, have been condemned.

A campaigner claims years of hard work restoring Batley Cemetery could be undone by Kirklees Council selling off the site's historic lodge at an auction.

There's also plenty for our readers in Spen Valley, including praise for an acting headteacher in Liversedge who is leading a school's revival.

In sport, Batley Bulldogs have added Alistair Leak to their long-term injury list ahead of their trip to Barrow on Sunday.

The interchange hooker has been ruled out for four to six weeks with a knee injury which saw him miss last week’s fixture against Whitehaven.

Dewsbury Rams coach Glenn Morrison admits it will be a difficult task to beat league leaders Leigh Centurions on Sunday.

However, the Rams coach says he has confidence in his side’s ability to lift themselves for the big occasion.

Plus we have all the reaction from the two Championship sides' weekend games, with both suffering disappointing losses.

In cricket we have a review of all the action in the Bradford and Central Yorkshire Leagues, plus a look at the results of the Priestley Cup and draw for the Heavy Woollen Cup.

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