RESIDENTS were woken by a car fire which happened close to family homes.

Resident Irfan Ulhaque was woken by the sound of explosions and a blaring car alarm early on Saturday morning near to the Shell petrol station on Haworth Road, Bradford.

Mr Ulhaque said he feared his own car was on fire when he looked out of the window at around 7am.

He said the car appeared to be a Ford Mondeo which he had not seen before.

A fire crew put out the flames and the car was removed a short time later.
