POLICE cells in West Yorkshire have been given a good report.

Inspectors today praised most of the custody areas in police stations in the region, including Huddersfield.

But they did voice concerns about some of the cells at the Leeds Bridewell, and the provision for women.

The report came from Nick Hardwick, Chief Inspector of Prisons, and Dru Sharpling, HM Inspector of Constabulary, who published the report of a joint unannounced inspection into custody suites in West Yorkshire.

The inspection was part of a national programme.

It covered 10 custody suites serving Leeds (Weetwood, Stainbeck and Bridewell), Ossett, Pontefract, Wakefield, Huddersfield, Bradford (Central Charging Office and Lawcroft House) and Keighley. Custody suites at Dewsbury and Calderdale were closed for refurbishment.
