Reveller breaks man’s cheekbone after being ejected from Leeds nightclub



Police are trying to find a reveller who broke a man’s cheekbone in an unprovoked attack after being kicked out of a nightclub in Leeds.

The 24-year-old victim was walking along Crown Street in Leeds city centre when he saw a man being ejected from Chilli White by doorstaff.

The man then approached him and, without provocation, punched him in the face causing a broken cheekbone.

The victim fought back and the attacker ran off towards Kirkgate.

Detective Constable Alexa Worsnop, of Leeds District CID, said: “This was a completely unprovoked attack that left the victim with a serious injury. We would like to hear from anyone who recognises the man shown in the images or who witnessed the incident at the time.”

The incident happened at about 4am on Thursday, October 1.

Anyone with information should contact Det Con Worsnop or Det Con Craig Mason at Elland Road police station via 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Shoplifter with nearly 100 convictions banned from Leeds city centre


A shoplifter with nearly 100 convictions to her name has been banned from Leeds city centre for three years.

Chantelle Mitchell, of Broadway, Horsforth, has a record of 91 thefts from shops in the city going back to 1995.



Her latest conviction was for stealing two jackets, worth £200, from Blacks in The Core shopping centre on October 13, when she was chased and caught after using a foil-lined bag to conceal the garments.

Mitchell, 38, was jailed for 31 weeks by Leeds magistrates this week for the theft and for committing the offences while on a suspended sentence.

But she was also given a three-year criminal behaviour order banning her from entering the city centre.

Deputy District Judge Andrew Jebb told Mitchell: “Businesses in the area are entitled to a rest from your activities”.

New ‘three strikes’ policy to target beggars in Leeds city centre

New ‘three strikes’ policy to target beggars in Leeds city centre
A new ‘three-strikes’ policy is being launched in the latest attempt to rid the streets of Leeds of “hard core” beggars.


Supposed down-and-outs found hassling the public for cash in the city centre will initially be given a written ‘amber’ warning ordering them to stop and providing contact details for support organisations if they have genuine housing and health needs.


Those caught a second time face a ‘red’ warning banning them from a designated area for 48 hours. If they still fail to heed the warnings, they could be then be arrested.


Temporary Inspector Andy Berriman, who runs the City Neighbourhood Policing Team, said there were about two dozen beggars who had refused to engage with the authorities in Leeds.

He said: “The ones we’re dealing with – the hard core element – have got somewhere to live and receive benefits.

“We’re are not targeting destitute people, we’re targeting people who are making a living effectively from professionally begging rather than doing an actual trade or a skill.”

He forced entry to a staff room in the mechanical engineering building before taking a camera and a charger.

New inquiry into toddler’s tragic heart failure death during Leeds children’s heart unit row

New inquiry into toddler’s tragic heart failure death during Leeds children’s heart unit row



A family’s quest for answers over the death of a toddler weeks after he was operated on at the height of the Leeds children’s heart surgery dispute reached the courtroom today.


Max James Haigh, from Scarborough, was just 14 months old when he died of heart failure 42 days after undergoing a complex procedure to treat his congenital heart problems on March 18 2013 – just a week before NHS England medical director Sir Bruce Keogh controversially suspended all children’s heart surgery in Leeds.


The unit’s closure was overturned two weeks later after it was deemed that data, suggesting high death rates in Leeds that led to the decision, was inaccurate.

Ram raid at same Leeds luxury car showroom where £900,000 super car was vandalised





A luxury car show room in Leeds has been ram raided – just weeks after a vandal attacked a £900,000 Bugatti Veyron super car.

Thieves used a silver VW Polo to smash through the glass front of Kahn Automobiles on Kirkstall Road near the city centre on Wednesday night.


Two masked men then broke into a glass case containing wrist watches and stole six watches before driving off towards Burley Road.


The exclusive Kahn-branded watches that were taken are only available directly from the company.

Their value is not known, but the company’s website lists its watches at prices from £299 to £2,000.

Your Leeds United views: Is £5 meal charge pie in the sky ?

Your Leeds United views: Is £5 meal charge pie in the sky?


Just when it seemed things could not get much worse for Leeds United fans, the introduction of a ‘pie-tax’ has left many long-standing supporters questioning their attendance at Elland Road.

As exclusively revealed in your Yorkshire Evening Post, fans buying tickets for the South Stand for upcoming games will have to pay a £5 surcharge in exchange for a meal voucher.

That increases the price of a ticket for Saturday’s game against Hull City to £32 and the upcoming Preston game to £37.

However, Leeds claim: “The club is looking at ways to encourage our supporters to use the stadium’s facilities and catering offerings on matchdays.”

A PRIMARY school lunchtime supervisor quit his job after being arrested for downloading pornographic images of children.

A court heard Michael Earnshaw, 70, resigned from his job at Featherbank Primary School, in Horsforth, Leeds, soon after being released by police.

West Yorkshire Police officers went to Earnshaw’s home on May 13 this year and seized a computer after receiving information that indecent images had been accessed from the property.

A total of 136 indecent images and videos were found on the computer. Mr Ahmed said 40 images were at Category A - the most serious level of offending. A further 900 partially deleted images were found.

Pledge to help Leeds’ oldest street rise from the ashes

Pledge to help Leeds’ oldest street rise from the ashes

A major regeneration project on one of Leeds’ oldest streets will still go ahead - despite a devastating fire that left one of its shops gutted earlier this month,

The fire at Hills Furniture Shop, on Lower Kirkgate, caused serious structural damage to the building, which was subsequently demolished. There were doubts as to whether the council’s Lower Kirkgate Townscape Heritage Initiative project could continue.


But chiefs have today insisted the project will go ahead - and the fire will not impact on plans to restore the street to its former glory.

Councillor Richard Lewis, Leeds City Council’s executive member for regeneration, transport and planning, said: “The fire was obviously unfortunate and caused a significant amount of damage and disruption while the site was made safe.

Christmas is ‘looking tough’ for retailer



ASDA said it expects Christmas to be very tough​ after 90 per cent of its customers said they would spend the same amount or less money on festive treats this year.

The news came as the Leeds-based grocer reported another sizeable fall in quarterly sales as shoppers decamped to cheaper rivals Aldi and Lidl.



Asda’s CEO Andy Clarke said the group hopes to narrow the price difference between Asda and the discounters to just five per cent. At the moment it believes it is 10 per cent more expensive than Aldi and Lidl after being 20 per cent more expensive four years ago.

​Asda said like-for-like sales fell 4.5 per cent in the 13 weeks to September 30, which comes after a 4.7 per cent fall in the second quarter – its worst ever quarterly sales slide, described at the time by Mr Clarke as the group’s “nadir”.

Explaining why sales had not picked up, Mr Clarke said: “The market continues to be hugely challenging. We have seen a marginal improvement.

“We are not the only business to talk about non-food having a very challenging quarter. It was unseasonably warm year on year,” he added, referring to the warm weather which hit autumn clothing sales.

“It will be a very challenging Christmas for all of us.”

Asda said that while customers have £18 a week more to spend than last year, 68 per cent said they plan to spend the same amount on Christmas as last year and 21 per cent said they would spend less.

Despite this, Mr Clarke said that the group won’t be distracted by “short term gimmicks” such as vouchering or complex price matching schemes. ​Asda recently said it will abandon its Black Friday sale following the mayhem of previous years when fights broke out​.

Mr Clarke said customers would prefer lower prices in the run-up to Christmas than big discounts on just one day. So far this year the group has spent £300m on price cuts.

Cinema and ‘boutique brewery’ for £80m Tower Works revival in Leeds

The proposed Tower Works redevelopment

PLANS went in today for one of Leeds’s biggest regeneration projects - the £80m revival of the historic Tower Works in Holbeck.

The proposals by construction firm Carillion will see the old industrial site, long earmarked for rebuilding, brought back to life with a mix of homes, commercial office space and retail units.

The Grade II listed former engine house will be brought back to life with a cinema and “boutique brewery”, facing on to a new public square.
The developers say the will connect Holbeck to the canal, the new entrance to Leeds station and the city centre. More than half the development will be pedestrian and public space, framing views of the famed Italianate Towers which give the site its name.
The towers and Engine House building are owned by Leeds City Council.




The site will also include 90,000sq ft of commercial office space alongside a mix of one, two and three bedroom apartments and four-bedroom town houses.

Gareth Jackson, development director for Carillion said: “This planning application is the culmination of our work with the HCA, Leeds City Council and local stakeholders to ensure that Tower Works is a fitting and successful addition to the Leeds South Bank regeneration area.

“With iconic buildings, canalside living, great transport links and proximity to the City’s prime civic locations, it’s emerging as Leeds’ most exciting place to live and work.”



Tower Works is being designed by architects Jestico + Whiles and landscape architects Oobe and engineers WSP.

Ben Marston, director at Jestico + Whiles said: “Holbeck is one of the most exciting regeneration projects currently under way in the UK. The team has worked hard to respond to Holbeck’s special character while making the site a permeable place people will want to live and work in, as well as visit.”

Today’s planning submission for the site follows a development deal last month between Carillion and the Homes and Communities Agency, which took over responsibility for Tower Works after the winding up of the development agency Yorkshire Forward. Construction work is expected to begin next Spring.
Built in the 1860s, the original Tower Works factory ceased operations in 1981.
