NEWS: Police officer Simon Marshall has posted this on Facebook: "We are all aware of the issues in the media surrounding the thousands of people fleeing Syria, often risking lives in boats not fit for purpose, crossing seas and countries in the hope of a better life for them and their kids.
"So, in a small effort to do something to help I have decided I'm going to get a van, fill it with things people will need and take it to Calais. There is a drop off point at a church in the centre of Calais which takes donations. I have no funds to do this so am relying 100% on the good hearts of the people of the UK to help with this.
If you would like to help, you can do so in four ways:
1) fill a shoe box sized box with items that the migrants may need - toiletries, sanitary items, sweets, toys, gloves, scarves, hats etc etc. Label it with the gender/age of the person it is intended for and seal it.
2) Donate your old clothes and shoes that you would have thrown out.
3) Help out financially towards fuel and tunnel fares.
4) Offer the use of a large van to transport the items in - I have a post 1997 licence so anything that can be driven on a standard car licence.
I'm going to set off as soon as I have a van that is filled with donated items.

NEWS: A Leeds City Region-based devolution bid covering the West Yorkshire districts of Bradford, Calderdale, Kirklees, Leeds and Wakefield plus the North Yorkshire districts of Craven, Harrogate, Selby and the City of York has been submitted today to the Treasury.
Council leaders have submitted 27 devolution ‘asks’ focusing on transport, housing, business support, public service reform skills and new fiscal powers to generate investment for major infrastructure projects designed transform the City Region’s economy.
The leaders are convinced that there is a compelling case for devolving to Leeds City Region. They say it reflects the government’s creation of city region-based Local Enterprise Partnerships.
