TOURISM chiefs in Bradford yesterday launched the city's first open-topped bus tour - but the route was a big departure from most civic itineraries.

As well as historic sites from the local wool industry, the vintage double-decker passed such dubious attractions as the city's red-light district (setting for some of the Yorkshire Ripper horrific murders) as well as a derelict cinema and the UK's largest building site. A big plus is that the tours are free, but yesterday it rained so hard that passengers had to shelter downstairs and couldn't see anything.

Local entrepreneur Rubina Khan said: "I came up with the idea... it will help to get the feelgood factor back into Bradford and bring people back into the city."
