Bradford Classic Car Show celebrates 10th anniversary

The Bradford Classic Car Show is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year with a rally. It is taking place at Bowling Park. The park has a rich heritage in rallying as it was used in the 1980s as a stage in the Cartel National Breakdown Championships.

The crowds will be entertained by live BMX stunt demonstrations from Danny Butler's stunt team and mountain bike stunt legend and all-round showman Jez Avery.

As this is the tenth anniversary of the Bradford Classic, we wanted to introduce something a bit special so decided to give people the opportunity to see some amazing rally cars in action. This event will really put the city on the motor sports map and we look forward to welcoming people from all over the country. We hope to give them a weekend to remember.

Vintage Sports Car Festival at Cadwell Park

Vintage cars will be celebrated today at a festival at Cadwell Park in Lincolnshire. The Vintage Sports Car Festival will feature cars from motorsport's pioneering age, many of which have competed at classic events of the day including Brooklands, Le Mans and the Mille Miglia.

The pre-war cars are expected to gather the biggest interest, however, as they are a rare sight on the racetrack. They will compete in categories including the Geoghegan Trophy Race for pre-war sports-cars, the type that would have raced in early Le Mans events, and the Melville Trophy Race for special pre-war sports-cars

Travelling criminals are being warned to stay out of Yorkshire.

North Yorkshire Police's Automatic Number Plate Recognition team (ANPR) is using cameras to detect motoring crimes as well as helping officers with ongoing cases.

In the last year, police have seized over £1.3 million worth of stolen property, cars and illegal drugs, as well as 500 illegal vehicles in North Yorkshire.

Sergeant Ian Butler from the North Yorkshire Police ANPR Team said:

"ANPR continues to be an invaluable tool in the fight against crime, proving its worth time and time again. Denying criminals the use of our roads is a major priority for us and the technology enables us to do this very efficiently and effectively."**


Keep keys safe: police warning

North Yorkshire police are warning people to keep their keys safe after a spate of so-called " two-in-one burglaries."This is when criminals break into a house with the sole aim of stealing car keys.

This is the advice:

· Keep car keys well out of sight

· Ensure your home is well-lit

· Park your car in a garage or driveway, if you have one, if not park in well-lit areas.

· Fit a burglar alarm or steering lock to your vehicle.

· Consider fitting a tracking device to your car, so it can be traced if stolen.

· Make your home secure
