Three people test positive for Zika virus in Huddersfield and Calderdale


Patients returned home from foreign trips with virus which can harm unborn babies

Three people have tested positive for the Zika virus at local hospitals after returning to West Yorkshire from foreign trips.
The three were being treated by the NHS trust which runs Huddersfield Royal Infirmary and Calderdale Royal Hospital in Halifax when tests revealed they were carrying the virus, which can harm unborn babies.
Details of the cases were published in an infection control report to the board of the Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Trust which met this week.
The report said: “Three patients have tested positive for Zika virus following return from foreign travel.”
Health bosses have not revealed the age of the patients or their gender.
Dr Gavin Boyd, infection control lead at Calderdale and Huddersfield hospitals, said: “There is no specific treatment for Zika and it usually wears off naturally after two to seven days.
“After a diagnosis patients are cared for by their GPs if needed.
“There is extremely low risk of contracting Zika virus in the UK as the mosquito that transmits the infection is not present in the UK however it can be transmitted between humans by sexual contact.”
A total of 53 people have now been treated in the United Kingdom for the infection.
The virus has been linked to defects in newborn babies including microcephaly which causes babies to have small heads and developmental problems.

Customers will have to collect

Postal deliveries are still suspended to a number of houses in the Meltham area after a postman was savaged in the street by a dog.
The attack occurred as a post worker called Jack, who is in his 20s, delivered mail in Golcar Brow Road last Friday.
The dog had jumped over a fence in nearby Copley Avenue and latched onto the man’s arm in an agonising attack lasting several minutes.
It was only when a man called Robert Dickinson, of Copley Avenue, dashed to his aid and hit it with a shovel that it finally let go.
The victim was rushed to Huddersfield Royal Infirmary where he underwent emergency surgery on his injured arm.
On Tuesday the Examiner reported that deliveries had been suspended to a number of addresses in the area while the incident was investigated.

This amazing underground house has the best views in Huddersfield - plus a swimming pool and cave

This amazing underground house has the best views in Huddersfield - plus a swimming pool and cave


Unique house built by famous architect

It’s one of the most amazing homes in the country ... and it’s here in Huddersfield.
Underhill at Holme is a unique house built by well-known retired architect Arthur Quarmby where the family his lived for 41 years.
It has the most spectacular views over the Holme Valley – but most of it is underground and is designed around a spectacular swimming pool.
It’s now for sale for £700,000 – but to put that in context two-bedroom flats in London sell for more than £600,000.
Arthur, 82, said: “We moved into the house in 1975 and have lived in it with great delight ever since.”
He and wife Jean are now looking to downsize and want a two-bedroomed home ‘with character’ in the Holme Valley but can’t find anything suitable.
“It needs to have a fair-sized dining room, big enough for our grand piano,” said Arthur who sings with both Huddersfield Choral Society and Colne Valley Male Voice Choir. “But no-one seems to be building two-bedroomed houses any more.”
Arthur always had an eye for unusual architecture and was president of the British Earth Sheltering Association which was interested in the concept of building into the earth. He has given talks worldwide on the subject.
He admits her and Jean don’t use the swimming pool these days but quickly heats it up when the family are coming to visit.
They have two children, Jonathan and Rachel, and four grandchildren.
Although underground, light floods into the house from a roof light above and 20ft sliding windows at the front.

Beggar William Riley is banned from entering Huddersfield town centre for two years

The Criminal Behaviour Order was made after he asked female members of the public for cash


A man has been banned from Huddersfield town centre for two years after begging members of the public for cash.
William Riley was handed the Criminal Behaviour Order by Kirklees magistrates today (July 19).
They decided that the order was necessary to protect the public after the Berry Brow man acted aggressively towards some women who refused to hand over their spare change.
Riley, of Bishop’s Court, pleaded guilty to two charges of begging in a public place.
They prohibit people from placing themselves in a public place, street, highway, court or passage to beg or gather aims.
The offences are brought under the Vagrancy Act 1824 and are so archaic that magistrates do not have proper sentencing guidelines for them.
Andy Wills, prosecuting, said that the owner of a shop in Imperial Arcade complained about the 35-year-old’s begging on June 16.
At 8am he heard Riley swearing, looked outside and saw him sat on the floor.
Mr Wills said: “He recognised him as a regular and he was asking people for money.
“The witness heard him ask an elderly female for some money, she refused and he called her a ‘f****** s***’ and a ‘b***’.”
Magistrates were told that Riley then continued asking for cash, swearing at some other females who ignored his request.
The witness called police and described Riley to them.
He accepted that he would come into the town centre with no money, also begging by BHS and Greggs in order to buy food.
Riley also admitted to begging outside Huddersfield Railway Station and was caught there on June 30.

A teenager was hit with a wooden bat in a robbery by a gang of youngsters in Huddersfield.
Detectives are appealing for information after the incident in Alder Street which involved a number of attackers, some aged as young as 13.
The 17-year-old male victim was walking home with his brother at about 9.10pm on Friday when they were approached by the gang.

It is believed the gang were later seen in the Woodhouse Hill area of Huddersfield.
The group consists of six to eight males, aged between 13 and 16-years-old. The suspects are described as dark skinned, other than one who was a white male with ginger hair and freckles. One of the suspects was wearing a hooded top, with the hood up and a bandana across his face.

Marek Piatek threatened to 'silence woman forever' in chilling New Year's Eve attack


He grabbed her by the neck after she criticised his appearance


A man grabbed his partner by the neck and poured cold water over her, threatening to silence her forever after she criticised him over his appearance.
lucyna Rezulska’s face was so swollen during the attack at the hands of Marek Piatek that doctors were at first unsure whether her nose was broken.
Kirklees magistrates heard that following the New Year’s Eve assault at the Paddockaddress, terrified Ms Rezulska has been forced to barricade her door with an ironing board.
Polish born Piatek was found guilty of assault after a trial, claiming that his partner of three year’s injuries were caused by falling into a bathroom cabinet.
During his sentencing hearing at the Huddersfield court the 62-year-old still refused to accept responsibility, claiming that his ex was nothing but an “actress”.
Prosecutor Alex Bozman told the Huddersfield court that the incident happened at the couple’s home in Granby Flats on December 31 last year.
Ms Rezulska had returned home from work at 11pm and a heated argument developed over Piatek’s appearance, resulting in him punching her in the face.
Mr Bozman said: “She left the room but he followed, pushed her to the ground and hit her in the head and face again.”
At that point her nose started to bleed and she went into the bathroom to try and stem the blood flow.
Kirklees Magistrates' Court, Huddersfield.

Mr Bozman told magistrates: “The defendant grabbed her by the neck, bent her over the bath and used the shower head to pour cold water over her body.
“He left for a bit then returned to the bathroom and made a remark that if she didn’t stop crying he’d make her quiet forever.”
Ms Rezulska fled to her daughter’s home and Piatek was arrested.
Her injuries were described as a swollen and bloodshot left eye, bloodied nose and scratches to her neck.
Magistrates heard that when she attended at hospital her nose was so swollen that doctors couldn’t tell if it was broken or not.
Mr Bozman said: “She’s now afraid of leaving the house, particularly when it’s dark outside as she’s got the feeling that someone is following her.
“She has problems sleeping in the bedroom where the offence took place and has used an ironing board as a barricade against the front door to give her warning in terms of anybody entering the property.
