Firefighters have again come under attack whilst responding to a call in Bradford.

The crew, from the Odsal fire station, say they were also given racist abuse whilst putting out a bonfire in the Parkside Road area of West Bowling.

Stones and bricks were thrown at the fire engine, though a spokesperson said there “wasn’t much damage”.

It was revealed at the start of the week fire crews are having to be escorted by police to fires in certain areas of Bradford because of the risk of being targeted by youths hurling fireworks and other missiles.
