Man punched outside Leeds station is left with broken nose

A 28-year old man was punched while he waited for a taxi outside Leeds train station in an unprovoked attack.

Police say the incident took place just before 5am on Sunday, July 10. The victim was waiting with a group of friends for a taxi when he was approached by a group of men who asked if they could push in front of them to get a taxi to Preston. When the victim refused he was punched in the face by one of the men in the group.

The victim, who required hospital treatment as a result of the assault, suffered a broken nose, bruising and damage to his teeth.

“This was completely unprovoked and violent behaviour which is totally unacceptable. The victim’s attacker was extremely aggressive and was unwilling to wait his turn in the taxi queue which was only small with a wait of around ten minutes. It’s vital we trace the person responsible."

Unite, the country’s largest union, said that the ballot result of the 1,000 bus workers, based at the Bramley and Hunslet Park depots in Leeds, would be known on Thursday August 11.

"The indefinite bus strike, due to have started in Leeds tomorrow, has been suspended after the company First West Yorkshire came forward with a much improved two-year pay offer after protracted talks last Friday.

"Our members will be balloted on this offer over the next fortnight and the result will be known on Thursday 11 August. In the meantime, the strike has been suspended and our members will be working normally.

"We appreciate that the threat of strike action has caused concern to the travelling public in Leeds, but Unite believes that the new offer on the table offers an excellent opportunity to resolve this dispute.”

– Phil Bown, Unite regional officer

The one remaining issue that has to be resolved is the dismissal of the Unite branch secretary, who was one of the architects of the new deal. Unite is awaiting a date for an appeal hearing with one of the company’s senior directors.
