Many people were inspired by last summer's Olympic Games and none more so than 15-year-old James Dedman from Mirfield.
James, who goes to Silcoates school in Wakefield, is a fast-rising star in the world of shooting. His potential is such that he's now being coached by one of the top names in the sport, as Chris Dawkes reports.
Police have welcomed the guilty verdicts for Smith and Church today.
This was an attack which was clearly pre-mediated and demonstrated a shocking level of violence, sadly resulting in this young man's death. The crime scene we saw as police officers was horrific and I wish to pay tribute to their bravery and dignity in having to try and cope with the impact of this appalling crime.
A Huddersfield man, missing from his Dalton home for over a month is believed to be sleeping rough in the Mirfield area.
Police have been looking for 40-year old Alan Holt since he was reported missing on the 2 October. He was however last seen on the 27 September at his home on Albany Road.
Inspector Steph Wiseman of Kirklees police said: "Alan suffers from mental health problems and has not had any medication for over a month now, so we are extremely concerned for his welfare. The weather is turning colder and wetter and we really need to trace Alan before he comes to any harm."
Alan is described as being a white man, 5'8" tall and of slim build. He is balding on top, with black hair at the back and sides. He also has a tattoo on his left shoulder that reads, 'On Fire'.
