In this week’s Express we lead on the story of a man accused of attempted murder who has appeared in court over an alleged stabbing in Castleford.

-King Richard III’s links to Pontefract – including a son – have inspired a local campaign to see his remains brought home to Yorkshire.

- A corrupt detective who stole more than £1m worth of drugs from a police compound has been ordered to pay back his ill-gotten gains or face more time in prison.

In sport:

- Castleford Tigers centre Michael Channing does not think he has a point to prove when he returns to former club London Broncos for tonight’s televised Super League clash.

- They may be at opposite ends of the Super League table, but Castleford Tigers are not taking London Broncos lightly, says head coach Daryl Powell.
