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 June...

Election night drama

Bradford Telegraph and Argus:

The General Election turned out to be a much closer-run contest than pundits had expected, and the Bradford district wasn't short of drama.

The headline news locally was in Keighley, where John Grogan won the seat for Labour in one of the shocks of the night.

The T&A's live coverage throughout the night kept readers up to date with all the twists and turns.

We were the only news outlet to accurately report that counting was still underway at Shipley while others were claiming Philip Davies had lost his seat - which he actually went on to retain!

Five jailed for total of 57 years over 'pre-arranged' violence

Bradford Telegraph and Argus:

The clash between rival criminal groups in Hollybank Gardens, Great Horton, took place in October 2016.

Speaking after the case, the officer who led the investigation said: "These strong sentences show that police and the courts will not tolerate such violence and will always take strong action where firearms are found to be involved."
