Huddersfield's Olympic glory

We’ve had another look and it seems official - Yorkshire’s most decorated Olympic athletes are from Huddersfield!

We searched for Brits who have won four medals or more at the games (Ed Clancy and John Whitaker both have three), and none are from Yorkshire.

Well done lads, let’s hope you bring home more medals in Rio!

M62

We’ve heard from our colleague and Leeds commuter Sam that there’s a lot of issues on the M621 just before it gets to the M62 - people are coming off at junction 27 at Gildersome before getting onto the motorway.

This is due to one lane being closed due to an accident.

It's about to hot up

Brace yourselves for Huddersfield’s final heatwave of the summer.

According to weatherman Paul Stevens, after next week we can pack away our deck chairs and barbecues for good.

Olympic glory for Huddersfield?

Is Ed Clancy in with a chance of becoming the most decorated Yorkshire Olympian, if not already?

We’ve been doing our research and it seems the two currently most decorated Olympic medallists are from Huddersfield.

Equestrian John Whitaker and cyclist Ed Clancy both have three Olympic medals to their name, with both set to compete in Rio.

Get in touch if you know of any Yorkshire-born or based Olympic athletes who we may have overlooked.

Superintendent Owen West of Calderdale Police, said: “We need to find Granville as a matter of urgency. His family are very worried about him and we are too. We are concerned he may have come to some harm.

“He is an elderly and vulnerable man and we are doing everything we can to return him home safe and sound. But we also need the public’s help in our search.

“I am appealing directly to anyone who sees him or thinks they see him to get in contact immediately - even if it is old information or turns out not to be him - it can all help our search.”
