Councillor pictured with gun

Councillor Amir Hussain

A Bradford Labour councillor has apologised after a picture emerged of him holding a rocket propelled grenade. Councillor Amir Hussain is standing for re election in the Toller ward this week.

He said he was sorry for any offence caused by the photo, which he says was taken on a trip to Afghanistan twenty years ago. The picture has emerged days after Respect party candidate Asif Khan was pictured holding an AK47 rifle.
