Family of missing Bradford sisters do not hold police responsible for their actions

The parents and family members of missing Bradford sisters Sugra, Zohra and Khadija Dawood - who are believed to fled to Syria with their children - say they do not hold the police responsible for their actions.

The parents and family members are devastated by the sudden disappearance of the three sisters and their children.

This has caused great distress to the family and has also stopped us from living a normal life in the U.K since this incident. We are very worried about the children who could now be in a dangerous place.

We do not support the actions of the sisters leaving their husbands and families in the UK and of taking their children into a war zone where life is not safe to join any group.

We plea to anyone thinking about making a similar journey not to go.

We are also very happy with the help and support we have had from the Police and the way they have handled the enquiry.

Since this incident we have found it very difficult and upsetting to be in the media spotlight and would appreciate if the media let the rest of the family live a normal life as possible. We as family do not hold ourselves or the police responsible for the actions taken by the three sisters and ask all media companies to stop camping outside the doorstep.

The vehicle, which is believed to be a Vauxhall, is thought to have struck a black Vauxhall Corsa after it pulled away from the kerb in Whetley Lane at about 7.10pm yesterday.

The impact is believed to have caused the Corsa to hit a parked Toyota Hiace van and two other vehicles, causing extensive damage to the Corsa and the Hiace.

The 23-year-old female driver of the Corsa was taken to hospital with facial injuries.

We are keen to speak to the driver of this car, which was possibly a Vauxhall, as they may not be aware of what happened after the initial collision.

The car would have had damage to its nearside, and was seen travelling down Whetley Lane towards Thornton Road afterwards.
