The campaign by anti-blood sport supporters to ban the tradition of grouse shooting on one of Yorkshire's most famous beauty spots
A petition is to be handed to Bradford Council tomorrow which aims to silence the guns on Ilkley Moor.
Campaigners claim it is having an adverse affect on other wldlife - but those who organise the shoots say it is a good way of managing the countryside Chris Kiddey reports.
Anti-bloodsports campaigners will present a petition to Bradford council tomorrow calling for a ban on grouse shooting on one of Yorkshire's most famous moorlands.
They want the 'sport' to be banned on Ilkley Moor. But those who organise the shoots say it is a good way of manging the countryside.
Captain Edward Bromet, from Bingley Moor Partnership and Luke Steel from Ban Bloodsports on Ilkley Moor have been talking to Calendar about both sides of the debate.
Ilkley residents were out in force today to welcome the Tour de France through the town.
Despite a rainy start to the day the sun broke through the clouds and our weatherman, Jon Mitchell, was there to see the best of the action:
Yorkshire Ambulance Service say two people have been airlifted to hospital today following incidents as they watched the Tour de France.
A teenage boy was in collision with a vehicle in Leeds Road in Ilkley, suffering a leg injury. He was initially treated by medical team from the Tour de France but was then taken by helicopter to hospital.
Shortly before that a woman had to be airlifted to Leeds General Infirmary after falling through a roof in Chapel Hill, Skipton, as she watched the Tour de France. It's thought she suffered a head injury.
