Get your hands of on a Reuben

A ‘Reuben’ is a Jewish-American corned beef sandwich with Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and mustard.

It’s a ‘Rachel’ if it’s made with pastrami instead of corned beef.

Katz’s Deli in New York is famed for its Reuben.

But you don’t have to cross The Pond to try one because Pax Burger, Lindley, is doing a limited run of Reuben inspired burgers.

And it looks too good to miss.

Police told 'even kisses on texts' could be referred to IPCC as rules change

West Yorkshire Police officers have been warned that putting a ‘x’ on the end of a text to a contact could be classed as ‘serious corruption’.

It comes as forces across the country are reviewing police conduct codes in light of recent scandals nationwide of officers acting inappropriately and even harassing or abusing some victims or witnesses of crime. All incidents of alleged misconduct are now to be referred to the IPCC.

A report by West Yorkshire’s Professional Standards Department says: “Any inappropriate contact, even a kiss on a text message sent by an officer to a victim or witness to a crime is deemed to be inappropriate and is classed as serious corruption by the IPCC, requiring an immediate referral.”

Police are keen to speak to anyone travelling to and from West Yorkshire who may have seen the collision or either of the vehicles beforehand

Union criticised for planning more strikes

The Transport Minister has criticised Northern Rail’s strike actions which have disrupted trains over the weekend and today.

It comes as the RMT union announces more action over concerns for staff safety following proposals to cut train conductors.

Paul Maynard said: “On Northern, there are positive plans to deliver changes and improvements that passengers have asked for, including new trains, refurbishment of others and more frequent services. It seems incredible that unions want to get in the way of these important modernisation, all of which the company assures me will be subject to consultation with passengers and staff.”

Revelations come out of how Yorkshire Ripper attacked Ronnie Kray

The Yorkshire Ripper threw one of the Kray brothers against a wall “like a rag doll” in a brutal prison brawl, according to one of the gangster’s associates.

Peter Sutcliffe, who struck twice in Huddersfield during his reign of terror, lashed out at Ronnie Kray in an argument at Broadmoor. Associate James Campbell - who looked after the Krays’ family business affairs - told The Sun yesterday that he had been visiting Kray with a reporter, who saw Sutcliffe had a female visitor.

The female was Diane Green, a handwriting expert trying to get information out of him to help police with the unsolved cases. Mr Campbell told The Sun that Sutcliffe ‘flipped’ after seeing a story about her visits had been published.

He said: “Ronnie and Sutcliffe ended up having a big bust-up.He confronted Ronnie, lifted him up against a wall and threw him around like a rag doll.”
