In this week’s Batley and Birstall News:

Mindless vandals have desecrated a number of graves in Batley Cemetery.

A spate of attacks have caused hundreds of pounds of damage to around 11 graves, with crosses pushed over and smashed. Batley Cemetery Support Group chairman Bill Fox said some were beyond repair.

ALSO: School pupil Huzaifah Gora, who underwent major bone realignment surgery last year, has been awarded a diamond award by Batley Business and Enterprise College.

AND FINALLY: A man has been jailed after drugs were found stashed in a child’s car seat – the court heard he had been on a day out with his family to Blackpool.

Don’t miss all this, plus: Budding bakers are being asked to fire up their ovens for Batley Vintage Day, new plans revealed for Howden Clough Community Centre and find out what prompted the News to step and help school pupil Betty Farrar in 1936.

Only in this week’s News, out Thursday.
