Building up to the big bike race...
With the second ever Tour de Yorkshire less than a week away, West Yorkshire Police have issued advice for Huddersfield people looking to watch the event.
The three day event starts this Friday (29 April). Stage one begins in Beverley and ends in Settle with stage two the main West Yorkshire event (Otley to Doncaster). Stage three is on Sunday 1 May. It starts on Middlesbrough and finishes in Scarborough.
As well as passing through West Yorkshire, stage two of the event also sees the women’s race (one stage only) pass along the same route.
It is expected that well over one million people line the streets to watch the Tour de Yorkshire over the three days of the event and some disruption is inevitable.
We’re finding it hard to quit.

Press Association has reported that police planning errors ‘caused or contributed’ to the dangerous situation that developed on the day of the Hillsborough disaster, the jury at the inquests into the deaths of the 96 Liverpool fans has concluded.
Jurors sitting in Warrington, Cheshire, agreed the tragedy happened “as a result of crushing in the central pens of the Leppings Lane terrace, following the admission of a large number of supporters to the stadium through the exit gates”.
They agreed 7 to 2 that the fans were unlawfully killed.
And they answered yes to the question: “Was there any error or omission in police planning or preparation which caused or contributed to the dangerous situation that developed on the day of the match?”
They were the first of 14 general questions they were asked, with others covering stadium safety, the emergency response to the disaster and whether the fans were unlawfully killed.
The Hillsborough tragedy unfolded during Liverpool’s FA Cup semi-final tie against Nottingham Forest on April 15 1989, as thousands of fans were crushed at Sheffield Wednesday’s ground.
Overall match commander Chief Superintendent David Duckenfield gave the order at 2.52pm to open exit Gate C in Leppings Lane, allowing around 2,000 fans to flood into the already packed central pens behind the goal.
Some good news at last for eastbound drivers on the M62.

Huge delays on the M62 heading from Huddersfield eastbound in between Brighouse and Chain Bar
Do you know that junior doctors are staging an all out strike today, which includes A&E departments?
They are striking at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, like around the rest of the country, over new contracts that Health secretary Jeremy Hunt wants to impose upon them.
Although parts of the contracts have been agreed, they are fighting terms re working hours and pay, with a key sticking point about payments for working on Saturdays.
The term “junior” refers to anyone who is not at consultant or GP level. It can take anything from around five to 15 years to reach this level, while some doctors choose not to go down this route until later, if at all.
A pensioner with health problems has been given a community order after setting fire to his curtains at a home run by Eldercare.
Separately, the Ashleigh Care Home was condemned by the Care Quality Commission last September, who gave it an inadequate rating, the worst possible grade.
It closed down last autumn.

Good morning, everyone. And look, what a beautiful day!
Let’s just hope it stays with us.
Flytipping is wreaking havoc on another beauty spot in Kirklees-and this time its Marsden Moor.
Fridges and other waste have carelessly been dumped on the moor just off Mount Road.
As if that’s not bad enough, National Trust Marsden Moor and Hardcastle Craggs lead ranger Craig Best says that the “huge” problem is getting worse.
I went out on my bike yesterday and we saw two lots of dumped rubbish in other scenic car stops.
One tip to help cut down on this-if you get your waste privately collected, make sure you see confirmation that they will dump your waste in a legal facility.
