Leeds today: Halloween, Christmas, lights and things going wrong.

Hi kids, its @ebsnare here with you for your roundup of Tuesday news.

The battle over the future of Leeds Kirkgate Market continues, with Friends of Leeds Kirkgate Market reporting on a furore that occurred during the unveiling of plans to press.

A Wakefield man is being questioned over the death of his step-daughter in a fire at Hessle Farm, Wragby, reports the BBC.

Light Night is fast approaching, and what with semaphore, craft gardens, and a host of other things going on, BGL’s Mark O’Brien asks what you’re looking forward to over on the Culture Vulture.

Talking of lights, Leeds City Council has posted that their Christmas lights switch on this year will be Thrsday 10th November, with entertainment from 7pm onwards. Never too early to think about Christmas people!

Also on the Guardian Northerner, Sarah Hartley does a round up of the best Halloween activities across the North. If you’ve got some spooky goings on, do let us know – we might have to do a Halloween Special (where Mike gets probed by aliens, I start to carry my head under my arm, John turns into a werewolf and Mark becomes a living skeleton. Or we eat pumpkin pie, whatever).

Georgie ‘Porgie’ Osbourne has announced that enterprise zones are to be set up to help tackle the huge job losses faced by BAE System’s announced cuts, reports the YEP.

Also over on the YEP, they report on a broadband fault that’s affected significant numbers of households across East Yorkshire and other areas.
