Police have arrested four more men after shots were fired at a police car in Bradford.

The attack took place outside a nightclub on Christmas Day.

Officers were called to a disturbance outside the venue in Sackville Street at 04:20 GMT, and bullets hit the windscreen as an officer interviewed a victim in the vehicle.

Police said the shots were fired from a car that was later found burnt out in the Great Horton area of the city.   

On Saturday, police stopped a car on Great Horton Road and arrested a man inside on suspicion of attempted murder.

Three other men, all from Bradford, have been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender and are currently in custody. 

Another 21-year-old man who was arrested in Bradford on suspicion of attempted murder on Friday has been bailed.
