I have today written to Mark Burns-Williamson, the West Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner, to raise my concerns about valdalism aimed at statues in our local area.
Whilst of course I express my solidarity with the protests following the death of George Floyd in the USA, I do not agree with identity politics and the vadalism of public and private property. Further, I do not wish to see any further violence, towards the police or other members of our community.
I have asked the police to fully investigate these acts of vandalism. Residents can read my letter in full here:
