Comments on social media suggested the deer was also seen near Leeds Station and on Boar Lane during the incident on Sunday afternoon.

Although wild deer have been seen in suburbs such as Kirkstall, it is unusual for one to make its way into such a built-up urban area.

West Yorkshire Police confirmed that they did not receive any calls relating to the deer.
