Bradford: This divided city is united by only one thing — drugs

Bradford in the UK is a city divided by race and religion, unified by one key problem — drugs.

I went there to see for myself: Were the people there, Muslim or non-Muslim, really worried about Boris Johnson’s comments about the burqa? It turned out, they had far more pressing problems to worry about.

I met a father who had to move house to save his daughters from the rape squads. And a fourteen year old with friends who use heroin.

And the truths of these people are largely unrepresented in the press and in Parliament.
