Pictured of a heavy police presence emerged online on Friday, June 29 along with officers with guns.

It is thought that the police were initiating a routine terrorist drill for training purposes and posters in the city centre warned shoppers to expect them.

The YEP contacted West Yorkshire Police who told us that there was no recorded incident.
