Revellers have been thanked by police after the Bingley Music Live festival passed off without major incident.
A total of 19 arrests were made during the three-day weekend event at Myrtle Park, mostly for possession of drugs, with some minor disorder and a small number of thefts.
About 35,000 music lovers packed into the festival site to listen to legends The Human League, Primal Scream and Chic featuring Nile Rodgers.
Meanwhile, the Bingley neighbourhood policing team reported largely trouble-free nights on the Friday and Saturday as thousands of festival-goers packed out the town’s bars.
Superintendent Gary Baker, the event’s lead police officer, said: “Bingley Music Live is a fantastic event and we have developed a terrific relationship with the team at Bradford Council over the years to do what we can to help them make it a success.
“I would like to thank the thousands who attended for behaving so responsibly. We were pleased to see that the number of arrests again was comparatively few, given the overall attendance over the three days.”
