Two men have been arrested in connection with the fatal stabbing of a teenager during a street fight.

Police were called to Duckworth Lane in Bradford at midnight on Thursday after reports of a "large group" of men fighting and cars being damaged.

A 19-year-old man was taken to Bradford Royal Infirmary shortly afterwards with a single stab wound but later died.

Two men, aged 17 and 20, had since been arrested for violent disorder as part of the murder inquiry, police said.

The local community was "understandably concerned", the West Yorkshire force added.

Bradford District Commander, Ch Supt Daniel Greenwood, said officers were working to provide reassurance to local people.

He said: "The local community is understandably very distressed by this incident, especially as it is happened during the holy month of Ramadan."

Officers have appealed for witnesses or anyone with dashcam footage to come forward.
