Enquiries are ongoing this evening into an affray incident following an unannounced visit by Britain First to Bradford.

Bradford District Police are conducting enquiries and reviewing CCTV following an incident on Hamm Strasse at  3.14pm in which a vehicle belonging to the group was damaged.

Another of the group's vehicles was damaged in an earlier incident on Lumb Lane at about 3pm.

Two local men aged 27 and 29 were arrested on suspicion of affray in connection with the Hamme Strasse incident and are in custody.

“We continue to hold two men in custody for questioning following an attack on a vehicle brought by the group and we have recovered extensive CCTV footage which we are reviewing this evening.
