A police helicopter was drafted into Halifax overnight to help with incidents.

Around 9.30 pm last night it was over Norton Tower, helping in the search for suspects and two youths were detained by ground units.

At just after midnight today(Mon) it scoured a large open area in Southowram after suspicious persons were reportedly seen with torches, and from there onto Ravenscliffe, Skircoat Green, to reports of a stolen bike.
