Thousands of people passed through security arches at Dewsbury bus station as part of a police operation.

A mobile arch – similar to those found at airports – was installed at the main entrance, which police said thousands of people passed under on Tuesday.

Officers also searched people coming in from the far end of the station with security wands. In total, 385 people were scanned by the wands. Two people were also taken aside and searched by police separately because they smelled of cannabis.
Sgt Des Sawdon of Kirklees CID said: “Historically this is an area where large numbers of people gather so it is important we try to improve feelings of public safety.
