HUDDERSFIELD is gearing up for its busiest-ever Saturday.
Huge crowds are expected in town - both for the last shopping weekend before Christmas and the soccer derby between Town and Bradford City.
But the message from police is : It's business as usual.
They have urged people to be aware that many roads around the town and the Galpharm Stadium are likely to be choked with traffic for much for the day.
And parking spaces are likely to be at a premium.
Shops expect to see crowds flocking in from early morning with customers anxious to complete their Christmas shopping.
The match at the stadium is expected to attract a crowd of at least 15,000 - the biggest of the season.
Police are planning a massive operation to control the crowds and prevent problems between rival fans.
But they are also anxious to keep traffic moving on roads in and out of the town centre and to and from the M62 motorway.
Police spokesman Pc Russ Conlon said: "We don't want anyone to be put off coming into Huddersfield tomorrow but everyone should be aware it will be extremely busy.
"Shoppers may want to get in earlier to avoid the match, which starts at noon, and drivers should realise that a lot of the parking places will be taken quickly.
"We have had problems in town with pickpockets and shoppers should ensure they keep a tight grip on bags and purses."
