POLICE in riot gear were called out to a disturbance in Undercliffe last night.

Telegraph & Argus readers have sent in videos of a heavy police presence, including around a dozen officers in riot gear and carrying shields.

They said at around 9pm Pollard Lane had been blocked off by police vans near the junction with Undercliffe Old Road. There were a number of youths on the road, some reported to be throwing rocks at officers.

Naveed Amini was driving home from Bradford to Pudsey when he was caught up in the roadblock.

He said: "I could see a group of young boys throwing stones, and I saw a lot of police in riot gear. My car got stuck in all this, and there were police moving forward coming towards us.

Bradford Telegraph and Argus:

"I had a three year old in the car with me, it was all quite dangerous."

Other witnesses say they had seen a group of around 30 young people throwing stones and bricks at cars shortly before the police arrived.

Inspector Carlton Young from West Yorkshire Police said extra officers from out of area, known as Force Gold Reserve, had to be called in to deal with the incident.

Fireworks were also thrown at police as well as firecrews attending the scene, he said.

He added: "We used our officers to contain the area and made contact with community leaders to help regain calm. There were no reports of any injuries, there were no arrests but one police vehicle was damaged."
