Residents-only parking zones could be introduced in Thornhill Road and surrounding streets as a result of recent changes to Bradford Council rules. News of the possible respite came as a resident described how an an ambulance could not get past parked vehicles on Tuesday last week to reach a house on an emergency call.

KEIGHLEY councillors said fly-tippers have “no excuse”, after new figures showed reports of this crime in Keighley and Bradford had risen dramatically. Government data shows in the 12 months to the end of March there were 14,317 reports of fly-tipping incidents across Keighley and Bradford – a jump of 17.4 per cent on the previous year.
