POLICE have moved to reassure the public after concerns over a spate of firearms incidents in the Bradford district.
Armed officers were deployed on separate streets twice on Monday, leading to the arrest of a man on suspicion of a firearms offence.
It followed other incidents in the last week which saw two firearms discharges in a residential area of WindhillShipley, and shots reportedly fired at a motorist in Shearbridge Road, Bradford, after police saw a shotgun on the back seat of a car in the city centre.
Police were also called to another incident in Shipley after reports of a firearm being seen, though no weapon was discharged.
Shipley MP Philip Davies (Con) said: “It is a massive concern for incidents like this to be happening across the district.
“I am sure police will treat it as seriously as I do. I hope they can stamp it out as quickly as possible.”
Nick Smart, chairman of West Yorkshire Police Federation, which represents rank-and-file police officers, said some individuals were prepared to use weapons as part of their criminality.
Mr Smart said: “Crime has changed. It is no longer like Dixon of Dock Green. There are individuals who are prepared to use firearms.
“But we will respond with highly trained and select officers who will do their utmost professionally to keep the public, and their colleagues, safe in Bradford and West Yorkshire.”
Mr Smart said the West Yorkshire force was increasing the number of its firearms officers to meet the threat of terrorism and respond to firearms incidents.
“Firearms are becoming more prevalent with certain elements of the criminal community. Having said that, members of the public shouldn’t be concerned they are going to be targeted. They should be reassured that firearms officers are out there to protect them.”
The incidents - which have not led to anyone being injured - came as a villain was jailed for 18 years after minding an arsenal of lethal weapons, including a replicaUzi sub-machine gun and dum dum expanding bullets, for criminals in Bradford.
