A woman has been charged with assault causing grievous bodily harm after two women were stabbed on the same morning in separate attacks in Bradford.

Andrea Woodhead, 52, of Idle Road, Bradford, was also charged with assault and possession of an offensive weapon, West Yorkshire Police said.

Ms Woodhead is due to appear at Bradford Magistrates' Court on Monday.

Police were called to reports of a woman in her 50s having been stabbed in Scotchman Road, in the Manningham area of the city, just after 09:50 GMT on Friday.

Both victims suffered single stab wounds and were taken to hospital but were later discharged.
