A SEARCH of woodland in Listerhills has ended, police have confirmed.

Officers were seen scouring an area of woodland on Thursday night and Friday of last week as part of a major series of firearms-related searches across the county.

Residents said they had been there for two or three days and floodlights were set up in the playing fields behind Archibald Street and Legrams Street.

Police have refused to say what they were searching for and have only confirmed it was a Firearms operation.

A spokesman for West Yorkshire Police said: "The search of a large piece of land in the Listerhills area of Bradford has now concluded.

"Enquiries by the Firearms Prevent Team are ongoing."
