Police hand out 35 tickets for causing obstruction

Officers from the Lower Valley neighbourhood policing team have issued 35 tickets for causing obstruction.

Sergeant Dean Maddocks, who heads the team, said some were issued for parking on the pavements and others for being too close to a junction all in Bradford Road, Brighouse.

“When the problem started about 12 months ago we were told by highways that they needed figures.

“Now we have gone a lot higher up the list and we will be looking at the permanent restrictions on the road.”
