Prime Minister Boris Johnson touched down at Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA) on Thursday afternoon for his visit to West Yorkshire.

He landed at LBA in a British Aerospace 146 plane just before 3.30pm.

A short time later the Prime Ministerial motorcade left the private Multiflight base at LBA.

Yeadon-based photographer Andrew Easby captured both moments.

He then headed towards West Yorkshire Police's headquarters at Carr Gate to put one of his key pledges into action by launching a recruitment drive for 20,000 new police officers.

Asked by a journalist if he would ever seek an extension to Brexit from Brussels, he said that he would 'rather be dead in a ditch'.

The media gave Mr Johnson a tough time over the resignation of his brother, government minister Jo Johnson.

Jo Johnson said in a tweet: "In recent weeks I've been torn between family loyalty and the national interest - it's an unreasolvable tension and time for others to take on my roles as MP and Minister."
