Posh Porsche - but MOT or tax!

During a test purchase operation by West Yorkshire Police last week, seven premises were visited and only one sold alcohol to an underage volunteer. The supervisor who made the sale has been reported for summons for the offence of selling alcohol to a person under 18.

By law, licensed premises should comply with the four licensing objectives which are: preventing crime and disorder; preventing public nuisance; promoting public safety and protecting children from harm.

Most licensed premised in Kirklees also operate Challenge 21 - a scheme where anyone who appears to be under the age of 21 is asked for proof of age.

Test purchasing will continue throughout Kirklees throughout the Christmas and New Year.

If anyone needs to report a licensed premises for selling alcohol to persons under the age of 18, please contact Kirklees District Police licensing via 101.

Not a happy Xmas for this driver

Regional: 'Cold case' murder review

Detectives are making a fresh appeal to find the killer of a Calderdale pensioner on the 25th anniversary of her murder.

Agnes Ogden
Agnes Ogden

The Major Investigation Review Team has launched a review of the murder of Agnes Ogden who was found dead in her home on Erringden Road, Mytholmroyd, near Hebden Bridge,on December 19 1991.

Detectives have said they believe someone in the local area will know the identity of her killer and it is time for that person to come forward.

Previous forensic reviews have been conducted into the case by homicide detectives and it is hoped that as technology improves and more work is conducted that fresh clues may be unearthed.

Agnes Ogden, 88, was found dead at her home in Erringden Road on the morning of 19th December 1991 by health authority staff.

She had suffered a blow to the face and had been asphyxiated and was discovered in her downstairs bedroom.

It is not clear whether anything was stolen from her house, and no motive has ever been established for the attack.

Detective Superintendent Jim Dunkerley of the Major Investigation Review Team, said: “Mrs Ogden was a much loved and respected local woman who was the victim of a savage attack in her own home.

“We have never closed this case and are now conducting a review to try and determine what happened and who was responsible for a death which rightly shocked residents across West Yorkshire at the time.

He added: “25 years have now passed since Agnes’s murder and I strongly believe the answer to who murdered her remains in the local area. I would urge anyone who may have information about the case and who may not have come forwards at the time to do so now and help us find justice for this lady and her surviving family.

“If you have information and did not come forward for whatever reason at the time, you will not be in trouble, but please do so now.

“Anyone who can assist the investigation should contact the Major Investigation Review Team on 101 or the independent Crimestoppers charity, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.”

Er, NOT an emergency!

Fabulous response

Here’s a round up of some of the comments, tweets and pictures about this story.

What will Sally do with all the donations?

“We’re going to get as much of it as we can to the boys without it being too much but I want a lot of it to go to children in similar situations within Kirklees because there are a lot of children who need things like this.

“They’re going to help so many people.”

Donations are still coming in

Sally told Joanne the response has been overwhelming, and donations are still rolling in!

She said: “People have been so generous and lovely. I’m a mum as well as being a police officer I see some not very nice things in this job and I know this isn’t an isolated incident. Things like this get to me because I’m a big softy.”

Live now on Facebook

Hopefully this link will work! Joanne is there now with Sally looking at the donations

It's not just the one room...

Our reporter Joanne Douglas, who wrote the initial story, is heading down there to see Sally and talk to her about your phenomenal response.

From one little boy...

And help you did!

(I’m almost in tears writing this!! - Lauren)

The story

The five and six-year-old were taken into foster care last week. They have never had pillows, toothbrushes and toys.

They have no possessions of their own and Sally was so moved, she appealed to Huddersfield people to help.
