“Sort it out CCG, ‘cause we’re not getting the 503.

Those were the chants of enraged protesters outside the Briar Court Hotel in Huddersfield, as crucial talks were held inside over the future of Huddersfield’s A&E department.

The chant referred to the 503 bus from Huddersfield to Halifax, which may be used more often if plans for the closure go ahead.

Travel:

All lanes re-opened and traffic easing, broken down vehicle removed on M62 Westbound between J28 A650 / A653 (Tingley) and J27 M621 / A650 / A62 (Gildersome).

Town:

As Huddersfield Town wait for news on any potential transfer for former player Jordan Rhodes from Blackburn Rovers, this is how a sell-on deal works.


Town are due to receive 20% of any profit on Rhodes, who moved to Ewood Park in an £8m deal in August 2012.

Travel:

Reports of one lane blocked and queueing traffic due to broken down vehicle on M62 Westbound between J28 A650 / A653 (Tingley) and J27 M621 / A650 / A62 (Gildersome).


Lane four (of four) is reportedly blocked. Affecting traffic travelling towards Huddersfield.

It is a number that he will never, ever, forget.

55546 was the number that Eugene Black was given when, aged 16, he entered the Nazi death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau in May 1944.

Now, more than 70 years on, the Yorkshireman’s story is to be recalled in Huddersfield.

Mr Black is in his late 80s and unwell but his daughter, Lilian will speak at the University of Huddersfield next week as part of a Holocaust Memorial project.

Local News:

A Batley man has today been found guilty of a human trafficking offence.


Mohammed Rafiq, 60, of Thorncliffe Road, Staincliffe, Batley, was found guilty following a trial at Leeds Crown Court of conspiracy to arrange of facilitate travel within the UK for exploitation.


He has been released on bail to appear at Leeds Crown Court on 12 February for sentencing.

Town:

Huddersfield Town are keeping a close eye on events at Ewood Park after Blackburn Rovers signed Sunderland striker Danny Graham on loan until the end of the season.

The burning question is: Does Graham’s arrival allow Town’s Championship rivals to accept any £12m-plus bids for Jordan Rhodes?

If Rhodes moves on, Town get a 20% share of any profit, so they could get a windfall close to £1m.

National News:

As 2016 begins we will trying to eat better, exercise more and ultimately, be healthier. However, our beloved pets also need to follow certain recommendations in order to maintain good health.


Veterinary bills are rising year after year, with the average UK vet bill set at over £300.


Head of Training at Pets Corner Lucy Ross provides her top tips for keeping your pets happy and healthy throughout 2016 and beyond:

Protect pets from the cold weather: It is important that pets are kept warm and sheltered from the cold during the winter months. Furry friends that are housed outside will acclimatise during the colder months and build up a warm thick coat.


Animals should therefore not be brought inside for the night and put out again during the day as this may cause them to moult – causing them stress and making them vulnerable to the cold.


Keep an eye on your pet’s diet: Over a third of pet owners use ‘human’ food to treat their pets, without knowing that such foods can be too high in fat and potentially toxic. Certain human foods may appear perfectly fine to feed your animals, but in actual fact are dangerous and potentially lethal.


Grapes, nuts, onion and avocado are among these foods since they contain toxins and compounds that can cause severe damage such as heart congestion and toxicity.
