Police cordons have been removed after two incidents in the town centre.

Officers had blocked off School Street in the early hours of this morning (Thursday) after they received a report of an incident which is currently being investigated.

While there, members of the public alerted them to a trail of blood on the pavement on Daisy Hill. Officers also cordoned of a path to the side of the Lifeline centre.

A police spokesman said the two incidents were not linked and they are not treating the blood incident as suspicious.

Marcus Griffiths lives in a flat in Wellington Street. He said: “At about 8pm I leaned out of my window just to see what was going on.

“There was a man with blood coming out of his arm. He was in his mid-thirties with a woman. He went down on his knees for a second then carried on walking down to the bus station.”

Kirklees Council were due to clean the pavement this afternoon.
