OSCAR-winning screenwriter Simon Beaufoy helped a photographer create a new exhibition about Bradford City fans.

Mr Beaufoy, who grew up in Glusburn, gave a camera to Nudrat Afza during the two years she spent taking pictures of female football fans.

Mr Beaufoy attended last week’s preview of the exhibition, City Girls, at the National Science and Media Museum in Bradford.

City Girls, running until June, reflects the fans’ emotions. Nudrat, who grew up near Valley Parade, went to her first match in 2013: “When I finally went to a match I was struck by the energy of the fans, particularly the women and girls.”

Mr Beaufoy broke into the world of cinema by writing worldwide hit comedy The Full Monty in the 1990s then went on to pen Slumdog Millionaire - which won seven Academy Awards -- and 127 Hours which was nominated for a host of international film awards.
