Northern warns travellers over strike timetable

"The threat to abolish guards and introduce driver-only-operated trains is only part of the wider attack on rail services," said the RMT.

Fine for Bradford landlord of 'slum' flats

A Bradford landlord who allowed his tenants to live in conditions that were likened to a slum and in conditions that were described as disgraceful has been fined almost £13,000.

Messy flat
Bradford Council

Hasan Kazi, 67, of Laisteridge Lane, was the manager of a block of 11 flats at 61 to 63 Ashgrove, near Bradford University.

In July last year an Environmental Health Officer inspected the flats, ten of which were occupied, and found that fire exits were blocked, a smoke detector was hanging off the ceiling and there was an exposed electrical socket.

There were also "numerous holes" around the filthy property which were allowing rats to come inside. Bradford Magistrates said that the property looked like a slum and the conditions were disgraceful.

In this case, not only was the property in a bad state it also put the lives of residents at risk."

I find there's something therapeutic about washing the car.

In fact, I used to wash my parents' cars for a little bit of extra pocket money.

But it looks like this seven-year-old in Sheffield got a bigger job than she bargained for!

When South Yorkshire Police took her up on the offer of a quick spruce up, they turned up in something a bit bigger than a car.
