“It was amazing to see so many representatives from different faiths present at the event who wanted to support and share our message of promoting peace.
“I wanted to recognise the work that West Yorkshire Police do to support our communities, in particular the work of the Independent Advisory Group and it is a privilege to work alongside PC James Elliott , the Faith Engagement Officer for West Yorkshire Police.

“It was incredible to see how a wide range of faith leaders in Bradford work so closely together, demonstrating unity and support for each other. At a time where there are tensions in other parts of the country, this kind of community partnership is so valuable.
