A vulnerable man who was forced to live in a garage in Sheffield where he suffered regular beatings and scavenged for food in bins.
A man was crushed to death in a bin lorry after climbing into a skip in Huddersfield to sleep after a night of drugs and alcohol.
With just six months to go before the Tour de France comes to the region final plans are revealed.
Two men had to be taken to a Bradford Police station, after a handcuffing prank went wrong.
After a police officer was assaulted in the city, a suspect who was arrested ran off with a pair of handcuffs attached, which were then discarded on Carlisle Road.
Police Community Support Officers then spent three hours looking for the cuffs, only to get a call to help two men who had gotten a little too close for comfort.
One of their friends had found the lost handcuff and decided, that it instead of handing them in, he would handcuff his mates together, despite not having a key to free them.
When officers tried to free the pair, they found the cuffs were broken, and a key would be no use. The two men then found themselves on a trip to Trafalgar House to be freed.
Police say: "The moral of the story is, if you find any police handcuffs, hand them in and don't cuff your mates".

One million people have visited Sheffield's Moor Market in just three months.An estimated 25,000 people passed through its doors on the first day alone – 5,000 more than the busiest Saturday at the old Castle Market. Sheffield City Council says the footfall numbers have been steadily maintained.
Councillor Julie Dore, Leader of Sheffield City Council, said: “The millionth customer is such a fantastic milestone and a huge economic boost for The Moor, which we hope to see continue in future.
"We are committed to supporting business in Sheffield, to bringing new jobs and opportunities for local people. The new Moor Market not only provides a great shopping experience but it captures the true entrepreneurial spirit of Sheffield.
“We are so pleased that regular Castle Market shoppers have continued to shop at the new market and welcome all the new customers who have joined them. It’s fantastic to see traders doing so well and we aim to keep this momentum going to ensure the market is a success for many generations to come.”
Thousands of renters in Yorkshire and northern Lincolnshire are too scared of being evicted to ask their private landlord to fix a problem in their home, according to Shelter research.
A YouGov poll found that 1 in 14 renters in the region avoided asking their landlord to repair a problem or improve conditions in the last year because they feared eviction.
More than a third (37%) of renters in the region have experienced problems with mould in their homes in the past year, while just under a quarter (23%) have lived with a leaking roof or windows, and 17% have had electrical hazards.
No-one should lose their home for asking their landlord to fix a problem, yet these shocking findings uncover the true scale of unfair evictions taking place across the country.
As homeownership drifts further out of reach, more of us are facing the prospect of settling down and bringing up a family in a rented home. But with private renters facing the worst housing conditions in the country - and the chance of eviction if they complain - generation rent is getting a raw deal. The government must protect England's nine million renters from unfair evictions.
– Campbell Robb, chief executive of Shelter
We're calling on people across the country to sign our petition and send the government a message that England's nine million renters deserve better, now.
Campaigners angry over plans to bury the remains of Richard III in Leicester will march through York later. It's as a judicial review into the exhumation licence is due to take place tomorrow.
There are concerns that reducing the numbers of trains in the North will lead to busier services and affect the region's economy.
The subject will be debated in Parliament today by Stocksbridge MP Angela Smith. It's as council bosses in North East Lincolnshire claim less rolling stock in the area will have impact on economic developments.
