  1. This is a deeply concerning incident in an otherwise peaceful area. If anyone has information, please contact the police.

  2. There are other things that go on ‘unseen’ not far from Tesco store on Dewsbury road Leeds 11. Examples young males from other areas parking their cars in the streets around Burton Road – they wait in their cars engines left running till another car turns up then discreetly try to exchange small packages quickly then drive off. Last night a neighbour returning from work about midnight saw a man carrying a long section of wood shaped like a spear walking up and down then standing in the middle of the street as if in a trance , who knows why and what for , also there’s now always some man sat down next to cash point machine begging for money. I know a few people don’t go to the Tesco now as they feel unsafe using that cash point. Things go on and no police seem to patrol the area anymore
