Respect party campaign bus is attacked in hit and run
A video has emerged today showing the Respect party’s campaign bus being attacked in a suspected hit and run.
A campaign bus along with six to seven other vehicles were driving through Bradford city wards since 1:30pm today as part of the local elections, when anonymous drivers targeted them.
Reversing into the Respect Chief of Staff’s car, the driver of the car drove off nearly mowing down people who came out of the bus to inspect.
One of the men who almost got run over in the incident – and requested not to be named – told the Yorkshire Standard: “The bus was going around City Ward and there were vehicles behind the bus, which started taking shortcuts.
“We got onto Legrams Lane when the incident happened. Some of us got out to check the man’s details and instead of pulling over, he drove off and nearly ran us over. We think it was because he wasn’t even insured.”
The incident has been reported to West Yorkshire Police who are investigating the incident.
