Man runs from Leeds to Huddersfield - dressed as a turkey

While everyone else was sat on the sofa eating the dregs of the Celebrations yesterday, this guy was putting them to shame.

Tom Donegan ran more than a half marathon from Leeds to Huddersfield to raise money for a local homeless people’s charity. Oh, and he was dressed as a roast turkey, too.

Tom, from Leeds, raised more than £500 for Simon On The Streets, which helps people sleeping rough in Huddersfield, Leeds and Bradford, after his turkey dash yesterday morning. He ran a total of 23.6km finishing outside Huddersfield Train Station, and just in time for lunch, too. I’m sure he’d have burned off a decent portion of a turkey dinner with that.

Well done, Tom!

Train line between West Yorkshire and London "worst-hit" by delays

Trains linking West Yorkshire and London are the worst-affected by delays in the UK, a survey has revealed.

Consumer group Which have revealed that a survey they carried out showed Virgin East Coat services between Wakefield and the capital had the highest number of long delays this year. That is, delays from 30 minutes to two hours.

Nearly 4% of their services were found to have run “significantly” late this year.

This is up at Mount, just before the Outlane roundabout. More to follow.

Police reveal drink drive arrest figures for December

Some non snow-related news for you...

West Yorkshire Police have revealed this afternoon that more than 200 people were arrested this month for drink and drug driving.

The Force see a spike in figures during December as more people go to parties and make the decision to get behind the wheel. Of the 130 who were charged, 22 were from Kirklees.

The peak time for arrests was between midnight and 3am, when 32% of arrests were carried out. The most people arrested in one day was 14 people on Saturday, December 9. Some 11 people were nicked on Christmas Day.

Police Sergeant Gary Roper of the Roads Policing Support Unit, said: “Throughout the duration of our campaign in December, we have seen over 200 motorists arrested, with 45 of those for drug driving offences.

“No one wants an officer on their doorstep telling them their loved one is never coming home, especially not due to a drink or drug driver.”

Gritting doesn't mean it's safe to drive

Another Town snowman

Car slides off M62 at Rishworth Moor

Your 4x4 isn’t going to be much use in the snow unless it’s equipped with winter tyres.

Drive appropriately for the conditions please folks and you won’t end up like this.

Useful tip for parents...

James Flynn has been improvising after forgetting his youngest’ wellies earlier.

Fun fact: This also works with McDonalds paper bags after your feet hurt from your heels after a night on the tiles.

Audi slide and prang

Thankfully no-one was hurt in this crash at Bolster Moor. But that damage to the front nearside is going to cost a few bob to fix.

Colne Valley dinosaur isn't bothered by the snow

And we thought these extinct giant reptiles hated the cold.

Slow heading onto the moors from Holmfirth

Reports that Greenfield Road out of Holmfirth is very slow currently.

Traffic reportedly “crawling” and buses have been turning round. Another one to avoid if possible.

Time to get the sledges out

Definitely not jealous in the slightest.
