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 July...
