Aspley traffic caused by "hole in the road"

As reported earlier, traffic is bumper to bumper down Wakefield Road from Waterloo to Aspley, heading into Huddersfield town centre.

There’s a hole near the Aspley traffic lights near the takeaways with two blokes looking into it. Two lanes are closed and only one is open.I was walking and I got to the bottom first! The poor drivers must be really fuming. All it would take is a couple of policeman to direct traffic. It was completely clear after the Aspley lights.

Jo Cox widower calls for fight against political extremism

The widower of Batley & Spen MP Jo Cox has written a piece calling for less tolerance of political extremism.

Too often liberals see everyone who doesn’t agree with them as idiotic or bigoted, when the vast majority are neither. There are many people who have understandable concerns about the pace of change in society and about the impact of immigration, but who are also decent people who believe in inclusion. Calling them racist or stupid pushes these people into the hands of the extremists.
