MEANWHILE, just as a leading world study rates Leeds as the most appealing British city in which to live and work, a Polish man is kicked to a pulp by a gang of 30 feral yobs.
It is perhaps ironic that the victim of this cowardly attack may well have come to Leeds in the hope of making a better life for himself.
Instead he finds himself in hospital having been a victim of what police believe was a race-hate fuelled assault.
It is a reminder that no matter how well-respected a study celebrates the place that we have created for ourselves, we must never become complacent about this city’s challenges.
Those guilty of crimes such as this do not deserve to enjoy the spoils of this city and must be sentenced to time in jail.
