A 52-year-old man has been arrested after a delivery driver was subjected to a racially-motivated attack in Bramley, police have said, and they are appealing for witnesses.

On Saturday, February 27, the driver pulled up on High Street at about 3.40pm, opposite the community library, to make two deliveries. As he stopped, a man driving behind beeped his horn aggressively, pulling up alongside and shouting through the window.

A man was later arrested on suspicion of racially aggravated common assault and a racially aggravated public order offence. He has since been released under investigation while enquiries continue.

Police are seeking anyone driving or walking along the High Street at the time who might have witnessed this.
