A nine-year-old boy who was stabbed remains in hospital as detectives investigate links between his attack, the murder of an OAP and an incident in which an eight-year-old girl was chased through a garden. Four of five people held have been released.
Prime Minister David Cameron reacted to the "truly shocking events" in Shipley, telling MPs at PMQs: "We must make sure that justice is done."
These were truly shocking events and reading about them this morning, particularly the young boy who staggered out of the park bleeding, having been stabbed, and the grandmother who was described as someone who was so much a community member that they were seen as everybody's grandmother, is truly disturbing.
