A ten year old boy is being questioned over the death of a 79 year old Leeds man.

Police were called out to Back Hill Top Avenue in Harehills just after 6pm on Sunday night. A pensioner was suffering with a head injury, he passed away short time later at Leeds General Infirmary.

The ten year old boy is being held by detectives while they try and piece together exactly what happened.

Tests are being carried out on the victims body today.

People who live in the area have been speaking about their shock - including a man who's mother lives on the street: "He would go out of his way to help the community. He would put the bins out, he would pick litter up from the street, he would tell kids to put litter in the bins. He volunteered in the local church - he did that on a regular basis."
