More than 7,000 people have backed a campaign to protect the Batley Library building.

A total of more than 7,300 signatures have been collected on a petition opposing any plans to move the library service into Batley Town Hall and sell off the iconic building and public clock – and more are still coming in.

Batley History Group, which organised the three-week campaign, will present the petition to councillors at next week’s Kirklees Council cabinet meeting.
