An 84-year-old woman in Bradford has died after teenage yobs hurled stones at her house and smashed a window

The pensioner collapsed around 10 minutes after the youths - believed to be aged around 13 - attacked her home in the Wibsey area of Bradford, West Yorkshire Police said today.

She was taken to Bradford Royal Infirmary but was pronounced dead a short time later.

Senior investigating officer, Detective Chief Inspector Simon Atkinson, said: “We received reports that three male youths had thrown stones at the address which had smashed a glass door panel.

“It is important that we quickly trace the individuals involved in causing this damage and I would call on anyone with information to come forward.

“We will not tolerate anti-social behaviour at any level in Bradford and we are determined to bring those responsible to justice.

“It is likely they live locally and people may know who they are.”

One of the youths was described as white, aged around 13, of large build with dark, shoulder-length curly hair. The two other males are believed to be of similar age and of slimmer build.

Police are patrolling the area following the incident on Fair Road, in the Wibsey part of the city, at around 6pm yesterday.

Officers are also studying CCTV footage, a police spokesman said.
