Police officers were attacked with firecrackers as they carried out an arrest on a housing estate in Bradford.

The unsuspecting officers cowered in panic as the explosives were chucked just feet away from them at the Holme Wood housing estate in West Yorkshire.

Bystanders could be heard laughing and jeering as one of them shouted: “He f****** jumped out of his boots!”
