    Four new street names have been chosen to honour the history of Bradford’s link with speedway.

    The sport used to take place at Odsal Stadium up until 1997 and now a new estate in the area is paying homage by naming two of its streets after two riders - Gary Peterson and Arthur Forrest - as well as two teams - Bradford Dukes and Bradford Northern.

    The decision came about after Bradford Council agreed to the street-naming idea from local enthusiast, John Murphy.
