SIR - It was great to see the photos of yesteryear Bradford in the T&A. How different to today when I took the shuttle bus from Bingley into Bradford.

Albeit it was a miserable wet morning but it made my heart bleed how tired and dreary it looked.

I am 83 years old and I remember Bradford as a vibrant, thriving city full of life and lovely shops. How very upsetting to see it now!

What has happened to see it so dismal?
