FIVE people were taken to hospital in the early hours of Sunday with knife wounds after a fight broke out in a nightclub and spilled into the street in Bradford city centre.

Police are investigating a "large scale disorder" in the city centre, and five men aged from 19 to 27 have been arrested.

Officers were called at 3.30am on Sunday to Westgate in the city centre at the junction with Sackville Street to reports of disorder.

It was discovered an altercation had broken out inside The Village nightclub in Sackville Street, before spilling out onto the street and continuing down onto Westgate.

Five people were taken to hospital with stab and slash wounds, and two remain in hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

Five men, aged 19 to 27, were arrested in connection to the incident.

“I would urge anyone who has seen any part of this incident, both in the nightclub and outside on the street, to please make contact.”
