Fire at Lindley workshop

There was a fire at a joinery workshop in Lindley this morning.

Fire crews were called to the building just off Lidget Street opposite Eric’s at 6.20am.

The fire was just at the end of a small row of terraced houses and a woman in the adjoining house who wouldn’t have been able to get herself out had to be escorted out.

No-one was hurt, luckily.

Huddersfield fire station attended and put the blaze out in 20 minutes. The cause is not yet certain as a fire investigator is at the scene right now, but watch commander Darren Bagley said it was “more than likely electrical”.

He added that heavy and expensive machinery had fallen through the floorboards at the workshop, but crews managed to intervene before the fire spread to the rest of the terraced houses.

Train tracks warning

British Transport Police have issued a warning to children and parents after youngsters were seen playing on a train line between Middlestown and Ossett.

The group were seen on the tracks by the Healey Mills Depot on Sunday afternoon.

Approximately one hour later the driver of the 3.05pm Bradford to Kings Cross service reported striking a wooden sleeper which had been placed across the tracks in the same location. Luckily the no-one was injured and no damage was caused to the train.

Inspector Caroline Farrow, from the BTP, said: “The last thing our officers want to do is knock on someone’s door to tell a parent their child has been killed or seriously injured as a result of messing about on the railway.

“That is why we are urging parents and young people to heed this warning and take a reality check when it comes to trespass. It’s not a game: they are real tracks, with real trains and real life consequences.”

Robbery in Lockwood leaves man with head injuries

A man has suffered head injuries in a street robbery in Lockwood, with the ambulance service only alerted after a resident heard him scream for help.

The attack happened in the early hours of this morning when the 37-year-old was walking home along Hanson Lane.

The exact details of the incident are yet to be established as the victim remains in hospital in a stable condition.

He will be interviewed by officers this morning.

Meanwhile police have cordoned off an area of Hanson Lane to preserve the scene for forensics.

Detective Inspector of Huddersfield CID Stef Wiseman said: “A man was on his way home along Hanson Lane at around 2.40am when he was robbed and suffered head injuries.

“The ambulance service received a call from a local resident who heard the victim scream.

“Enquiries are ongoing. We would urge anyone who may have heard or saw what happened to contact Huddersfield CID on 101.”

Motorway closure

A heads up if you’re travelling north-west for the bank holiday today: The M61 northbound is closed between junction 6, Horwich, and junction 8, Chorley, due to a fatal lorry accident near Bolton and traffic is at a complete standstill coming up to junction 6.

A diversion is in place, with drivers being told to follow the solid black triangle symbol to the A6207, the A6 and the A674.

Motorists can then rejoin the motorway at junction 8 near Botany Bay.
