A number of church services and ceremonies are taking place across West Yorkshire on the first Sunday since six soldiers died in Afghanistan. In Huddersfield prayers are being said at the town's Parish Church.

In Bradford, St Paul's Church in Buttershaw, there will be a minute's silence. The Huddersfield Giants and Wakefield Wildcats will have the stadium in Wakefield also hold a minute's silence before the game later.

A service will be held at 4pm this afternoon at Halifax Minster. Halifax is the home of the headquarters of the 3rd Batallion Yorkshire Regiment.

The Mayor of Calderdale Councillor Nader Fakri will be reading.
