Last year on Christmas Eve I was arrested for wasting police time. I reported that I had seen a man walking up Farsley Town Street carrying a gun. 

Granted, I had been on the mulled wine and the description I gave wasn’t all that convincing. CCTV was checked from local businesses but none showed a man with a gun.

As it was Christmas the police said they would let me go as they had better things to do.

I’m telling you this because I have seen the same man standing around Farsley Town Street recently.

I managed to get a photo of him, but you can’t miss him really. He wears a long coat and has a flat hat on.

Apparently it is not unusual to see him this time of year heading up Town Street towards the church.
