OFFICERS from the Roads Policing Unit assisted Leeds North West Neighbourhood Policing Team on Wednesday in conducting road safety patrols.

A spokesperson for the NPT said: "They directly targeted the roads that we often receive community feedback on. On this occasion, the focus was on: A6120 Broadway (Horsforth), A65 Bradford Road (Guiseley), Green Lane (Yeadon) and Harrogate Road (Rawdon). Other surrounding smaller roads were patrolled too.

"The result of the patrols were: 2x vehicles seized, 6x people given tickets for not wearing seatbelts, 1x speeding ticket and 1x ticket for an expired MOT.

"All of these tickets and seizures of vehicles could have easily been avoided, had the vehicles' keepers checked that the documents were up to date."
