Today is Eid, when Muslims all over the world celebrate the end of Ramadan.

Eid marks the end of a month-long fast during which no food or drink may be consumed from sunrise to sunset - a particularly arduous undertaking when it falls during the summer months, as it has this year.

A number of road closures will be in place around Great Horton this evening while Eid celebrations get underway. 

Large numbers of people are expected in the area to enjoy festivities and West Yorkshire Police says it has been working with partners in preparation. 

A spokesperson said: "We have been working in partnership with Bradford Council, other agencies, local businesses and residents in preparation for Eid, and collectively we are asking those attending celebrations in the area to have some consideration and respect for those who live there."

The following road closures will be place:

From 5pm: Summerville Road, from the junction with Great Horton Road to the junction with Woodhead Road

From midnight: Great Horton Road, from the junction with Woodhead Road to the junction with All Saints Road.

Pedestrian access will still be permitted.

Inspector Tom Casey, who leads the Bradford West Area Neighbourhood Team, said: "We welcome all visitors to the Great Horton Road area for the Eid celebrations and hope these will be enjoyed safely.

"We would ask people travelling by car to remember to park safely and sensibly and with consideration for other road users and pedestrians.

"We would also ask for people to try and keep noise to a minimum for the benefit of local residents.

"Most people who attend these celebrations are well behaved, but we would like to remind people that anti-social behaviour of any kind is not welcomed by local residents and will not be tolerated and increased police patrols will be on hand to deal with any incidents."

“I will personally be patrolling the area with my officers and I look forward to meeting people at this special time.”

Eid Mubarak to all those celebrating today across the Bradford district!
