  6. Laser pens 'need to be reclassified as offensive weapons' says Leeds MP

    The lives of passengers on flights into Leeds Bradford Airport are being put at risk by laser pens, according to the Leeds North West MP Greg Mulholland.

    He has now called on ministers to do more to stop people shining these devices at pilots and said tougher preventative measures were needed.

    "Half of pilots over the last 12 months have reported a laser pen attack," Mr Mulholland told the Commons. "It's a particular problem around Leeds Bradford Airport. 

    "What now can be considered, such as perhaps licensing or even classification of these as offensive weapons, to actually really put a stop to this dangerous practice?" 

    Currently, anyone found guilty of this offence could be fined or jailed.

  7. Funeral held for toddler killed by tipper truck

    The funeral has taken place of a two-year-old boy who died after being hit by a tipper truck in Bradford.


    Isaac Brocklehurst is believed to have walked out into Valley Road, Shipley, last month and was pronounced dead at the scene.  

    A horse-drawn hearse travelled to St Paul's Church in Shipley, where a funeral service was held. A private burial in Bingley was then due to take place.

  11. National Rugby League museum plans revealed

    The first steps towards opening a museum dedicated to the world of Rugby League have been taken. 

    We've no idea where this could be, but with the game originating in Huddersfield let's hope we're top of the list!


    The people behind it have made an artist's impression of what it might look like (above).

    The director of the National Football Museum, Dr Kevin Moore, is working with a group to look at where the proposed museum would be and how it will be funded.

    Quote Message: We are looking at developing a high quality museum that eclipses all other sports museums in the world, a facility that is immersive, interactive and educational and which contributes to the strategic objectives of the game.” from Dr Kevin Moore Director of the National Football Museum

  12. From 'tig' to pig: The playground activities put on the banned list

    We reported yesterday that a primary school in Leeds had introduced a temporary ban on children playing "tig" during break times after "clothes were torn" and pupils were left "upset".

    The school has stopped the game, also known as "tag" or "you're it", to allow the children "some time to settle down a bit", according to the headmaster.

    The ban is the latest in a line of stories from around England of educational establishments outlawing everyday activities, many of which are remembered fondly from people's own school days. 

    BBC News has taken a look back at other forbidden school pursuits that have made headlines.

  13. Commute time 'should be no longer than an hour in the North'

    Nobody in the North should have to commute more than an hour, according to a new report published today by IPPR North

    It says newly-elected mayors in cities like Leeds should focus on transport and the time it takes to get between major towns and cities.

  14. Watch: Attempts continue to reopen canal after driveway collapse

    Dorothy Bridgehouse from Todmorden had a narrow escape when her driveway collapsed into the Rochdale Canal during the Boxing Day floods.

  15. Peter Falconio case: 'No body, no parole' rule for killer

    The man serving life for the murder of British backpacker Peter Falconio in Australia may have to reveal the location of his body, if he ever hopes to be released.

    Peter Falconio

    Bradley Murdoch killed Mr Falconio, who was from Huddersfield, and attacked his girlfriend Joanne Lees in the Australian outback in 2001. His body was never found.    

    A proposed new 'no body, no parole' law could mean Murdoch will be unable to apply for parole unless he reveals where Mr Falconio's body is.

    He has always maintained his innocence.

    Two men rolling out of the pub? 

    No, it's Radio Leeds newsreader Clive Settle and sport guru Dave Fletcher trying their hand, or should that be leg, at the challenge Harry and Paul are doing for Sport Relief

    I don't think these two would last very long!
