HERE are the most viewed stories on www.examiner.co.uk last week:

1) TWO houses providing homes to alleged nightmare neighbours could be shut down.

West Yorkshire Police and Kirklees Council have taken pioneering action against properties on Church Lane and Church Street in Moldgreen following a host of complaints from people living nearby.

2) KIRKLEES Council has advertised a top job – but very few people can work out what it involves.

The job description for the £119,000-a-year role as Director Of Organisation Development is riddled with local government gobbledegook and has been condemned by both the Plain English Campaign and the TaxPayers’ Alliance.

3) PUPILS stayed at home as Colne Valley High School was closed by striking teachers.

Members of the National Union of Teachers staged the action after talks broke down in a dispute over a staffing restructure at the Linthwaite school.

But parents learned of the strike only when they received a text message from the school stating an NUT strike was the reason for closure.

4) HE had enjoyed a night out with friends.

But the lasting memory for 21-year-old joiner Daniel Donaghey was an appalling catalogue of injuries after a vicious, unprovoked attack.

Two thugs beat him unconscious close to his Moldgreen home and put him in hospital for three days.

5) KEVIN Cook’s DIY job looked like it was going to cost more than he was anticipating.

Instead of a couple of pounds for a few brackets and screws, he was facing a £100 fine and a court case.

The Golcar man was slapped with a parking ticket after a mix-up at B&Q.
