A new multi-mullion pound police station is to be built in the centre of a town two years after the former base was put up for sale. The original station in Keighley was to be sold after a review was carried out by West Yorkshire Police in 2017. Now a station is to be built at the site of the former Keighley College on Cavendish Street in the town. Keighley's Labour MP John Grogan said: "This is the best Yorkshire Day present Keighley could wish for."

PLANS to build 35 homes on a field in Eastburn have been approved, despite the objection of the village's MP. John Grogan was one of several objectors to raise concerns over the plans for land between Croft House and Green Lane. The application, submitted by A J Feather & Mrs Feather and Mr J Field, went before Bradford Council’s Regulatory and Appeals Committee on Thursday where it was approved by councillors. Members were told that despite the high-profile objections, a similar application for 31 houses on the site had been approved in 2015, although that permission had since lapsed.
