A woman in Bradford has been fined for failing to pull down an unauthorised extension on her terraced home.

Sajida Shahid faces the front extension to home being torn down by the council if she doesn’t undertake the task beforehand. It is the second case of its type on the same street after another homeowner was fined £300 for ignoring enforcement notices after building an extension without planning permission, earlier in the year.
