Somebody could have been killed

Woman, 76, who lives near the scene, said:

One of those bullets could have ricocheted off the wall and killed somebody. I can’t understand why it’s been allowed on this street. It should be in a park.

Weapon recovered

At 5.42pm today police received a report of gunshots in Great Northern Street, Huddersfield.

Resident anger

Residents are angry that the carnival ended up on their road in the Great Northern St area.

One woman said:

It should have been held at Greenhead Park. It would have been safer.

It’s been held at Greenhead Park in the past. To pack everyone onto a road like this is wrong.
