And I've never had a watercannon pointed at me before. And a long time since I've seen glass bottles chucked at football fans #CityInEurope

Not good here. Some City fans with bricks. Groups forming in the street. We're moving away as quick as possible.

Family's plea to find pensioner's killers

It has been 2 years since our father was murdered and we are all still struggling with the fact that no one has been brought to justice. This year we should have been celebrating dad's 70th birthday and it’s another reminder that dad’s killers are out there, carrying on with their normal lives whilst our lives have been shattered. We feel that we need closure and we appeal to anyone with any information to contact West Yorkshire Police.

Alongside a host of stands and exhibitions, guests will be invited to take part in food tasting, tour the hospital archive for a hidden slice of history, and experience what it's like to be at the heart of an emergency with a series of simulated A&E scenarios.

We're giving visitors the opportunity to hear from a series of experts, both from within the Trust and respected national and international speakers, on some very topical subjects such as the healthcare implications of an increasing elderly population.

Whilst this is designed to be very much a feel-good event, we'll also be sharing information on the work we're doing to tackle some of the biggest issues facing our hospitals today, such as difficulties in recruiting, waiting times, and supporting people's ongoing recovery once they're discharged from hospital.
