Police in Bradford joined forces with youth services and a community centre to encourage youngsters to avoid becoming involved in crime.

The initiative - featuring various activities - targeted young people in the Buttershaw and Woodside areas of the city, and police said it helps break down barriers between officers and youths.

A police spokesman said: "Similar initiatives have been carried out in other areas of Bradford which has resulted in a significant reduction in anti-social behaviour and criminal damage. This event's activities proved to be a great success and further initiatives will be carried out in the near future."
