Welcome back to the T&A's Review of the Year 2017, where we take a month-by-month look back at what made the news in Bradford through what's been very busy year.

We'll be posting two months worth each day from now until New Year's Eve, with a full rundown of the year's most read stories on New Year's Day.

Without further ado, here's a flavour of what you were reading in April...

Patient wins £8.8 million damages from BRI after broken back not diagnosed

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Bradford Royal Infirmary

A patient left paralysed from the chest down by Bradford Royal Infirmary's failure to diagnose a broken back won £8.8 million damages at the High Court.

The man, who was left depending on a wheelchair, had been injured after falling downstairs but medics at BRI failed to spot the symptoms of a broken back.

Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust admitted liability for his injuries.

Horses run loose in rush hour traffic

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Loose horses in Rooley Lane, Bradford

Wild horses couldn't drag us away from including this one in our Review of the Year.

More than 15 horses led police on a two-mile canter from Rooley Lane to Low Moor during rush hour, leading to calls for more to be done to make horse owners take responsibility for their animals.

"The fortunate thing is schools are on holiday, so traffic will have been lighter than normal," said a local councillor.

Peaky Blinders films in Bradford

Bradford Telegraph and Argus:

Bradford City Hall doubled as Birmingham's Midland Hotel as filming took place for the fourth series of the BBC's hit gangster serial Peaky Blinders.

Christmas came early, complete with artificial snow, for an external scene by the building's main entrance and the inside of the building was also used for filming.

It was perhaps the most high-profile of several film and TV projects to be filmed in the district over the course of 2017, cementing the city's status as a UNESCO City of Film.

Game of Thrones star Kit Harington also filmed his latest project, the Guy Fawkes drama Gunpowder, in various locations around Bradford this year.

Zayn Malik's mum and sisters open new salon

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Zayn Malik’s mum, Trisha, and sisters Doniya and Waliyha at the salon

Pop star Zayn Malik's mum Trisha and his sisters Doniya and Waliyha opened a new beauty salon in Laisterdyke.

But not only did the star not have any money invested in the salon, he joked that he's too much of a natural beauty to need its services!

2017 has been a busy year for Zayn, who's spent much of it in Los Angeles writing songs for his second solo album.
