TRIBUTES paid to tragic teenager, woman jailed for false sex assault charge, and some welcome light relief, in our round-up of the day in Harrogate.

Yes, not that much to smile about today – but here’s all the news that’s fit to print, plus something about yoghurt.

There might also be an advert for mattresses, if you time your arrival on the page just right.

Your words could one day grace the Briefing, but first you have to sign in and post a comment, email ackrill.news@ypn.co.uk or strut around giving it the big “I am” on Twitter. Everybody likes a show-off.

TUESDAY’S MAIN STORIES

Tributes paid to tragic teenager after drug death. Full details.

Woman jailed for false sex assault charge against policeman. More here.

Dog protests against animal testing. I may have misunderstood the photo.

The Divine Comedy to headline Harrogate Festivals. Assume the perpendicular.

Harrogate church says God would approve of solar panel scheme. “Let there be carbon-neutral light!”

ALSO ON THE ADVERTISER WEBSITE...

A hundred cyclists tackle race in Scotton. Clicky.

Terrifying weasel child to appear on Harrogate stage. Cower before him.

“One day you’re singing outside Tescos in the rain and the next day you are touring the UK and Europe with Chris de Burgh and Mick Hucknall...” And yet Kristyna Miles keeps a smile on her face. But seriously folks...

THINGS WE FOUND ON THE INTERNET

Nice photo of Harrogate in the rain from the Daily Mail. Shame about the rest of their website.

Bus appears to be lost.

A heap of classy pics taken at Harrogate’s Sitting Room comedy club.

Advertiser reporter gets all excited about a new film.

That’s all for today. The internet’s gone boring.

NOT IN THIS WEEK’S ADVERTISER. (AKA “NONSENSE IN OUR INBOX”)

Yoghurt company reports that 80 per cent of people (well over the national average of 72 per cent) in Yorkshire are in need of a holiday, according to “a new survey” (a survey? Wow, that does sound scientific). A quick Google search suggests that Yakult’s ingenious attempts to get their creamy foodstuffs mentioned in publications across Britain had just the one taker.
