Police are continuing to appeal for witnesses after a man’s van was hijacked in Shelf.

The robbery took place at Shelf Moor, Shelf, at 6.40am on Monday.

The suspect then jumped into the vehicle and drove off down Shelf Moor Road.

Police said the van was driven towards Bradford and struck an ANPR camera in Rooley Lane shortly after.

The vehicle is a maroon Ford Transit, registration M111 CYC. The suspect was male, wearing dark clothing and a dark hat with flaps over the ears.

The victim suffered a slight injury to his thumb. He is offering a £500 reward if the vehicle is returned in the same condition.
