In this week’s Batley and Birstall News:

A 41-year-old man was found dead by paramedics at a Hanging Heaton home. Police are still trying to establish how the man died.

Ambulance crews were called to Bromley Street at about 5pm on Tuesday, where they discovered his body.

PLUS: Kirklees Council leader David Sheard has warned a 10-year backlog of road repairs could leave them with no choice but to close some of its more remote roads to traffic.

AND FINALLY: Batley Bulldogs coach John Kear said his side will face several gruelling training sessions after they were beat 43-10 by Dewsbury Rams.

Don’t miss all this, plus: Friends bid farewell to the Bishop of Wakefield Rev Stephen Platten, volunteers helping with the Tour De France have been warned to mind their language and don’t forget to read Educating Yorkshire’s Jonny Mitchell’s column.
