West Yorkshire Police, paramedics and the fire service attended the scene and a cordon was put in place.

Officers washed down the scene and placed plastic sheets over the area.

They tested the liquid and found it was not corrosive as initial tests suggest it may have been antifreeze.

A spokesman for West Yorkshire police said: “We got a call at around 7.16pm last night.

“The initial call was that people had been fighting and a liquid had been thrown over a lady.

“My service attended and the liquid was found to be non-corrosive. We think it was antifreeze.

“The lady was taken to hospital with minor injuries.”

A spokesperson from Lidl told The Yorkshire Evening Post: “We can confirm that our store team immediately contacted the authorities and provided support, following an incident that took place outside of our Gipton store on Saturday evening.

“Our thoughts are with those affected and we will continue to provide the police with any assistance they require.”
