Huddersfield and Dewsbury stations to close for upgrades

A word of warning if you're planning to use Huddersfield or Dewsbury train station at the end of this month: they'll be closed for two days.

BBC

Network Rail says it's having to shut the stations on 28 and 29 October so improvement work to the signalling system can take place.

It means there'll be no services travelling through the stations and services to places including Leeds and Manchester will be replaced by up to 25 buses an hour.

This is the second in a three-stage plan to upgrade the lines and Network Rail says it'll result in "a more reliable, modern and cost-effective railway".

The signalling system in this part of West Yorkshire is approaching the end of its life. I thank passengers for their patience."

Two teens arrested after man dies following Huddersfield attack

A man has died after a violent attack outside a McDonalds in the centre of Huddersfield.

West Yorkshire Police

Graham Bell (pictured), 37, died at Leeds General Infirmary yesterday from head injuries after the assault which happened at the weekend.

Two boys, aged 15 and 16, have been arrested on suspicion of assault and have been bailed.

Police say they want to speak to anyone who was in the Kirkgate and John William Street areas at about midnight on Saturday into early Sunday and who might have seen the attack.

We know Mr Bell walked along Kirkgate in the direction of McDonalds and that he was assaulted outside the restaurant at about 12:40."

LISTEN: Huddersfield MP says Kirklees Council will improve Children's Services

Elly Fiorentini

BBC Yorkshire Live

The Huddersfield MP Barry Sheerman says he'll keep a close eye on what happens inside Kirklees Council after it was ordered to take drastic action over its troubled Children's Services department.

The government's told the council to make a deal with Leeds City Council so the two authorities can work together on fixing a series of failings, meaning it's been labelled "inadequate".

Barry Sheerman MP believes that Kirklees is determined to get things right.
