A POLICE scene remains in place following a man's death on a residential estate in Bradford.

West Yorkshire Police was called to a "serious ongoing incident" in Shetland Close, in the BD2 area of the city, at 3.57pm on Tuesday.

Officers rushed to the area and discovered the body of an adult male there.

One of the first people on the scene had gone round to Shetland Close after hearing “screaming, yelling, and shouting” while washing his car at around 3.15pm on Tuesday.

The neighbour, who wished to remain anonymous, said: “I was washing my car in the drive so I could hear it all.”

His wife wandered round at about 3.45pm and he went to the quiet cul-de-sac after she relayed the horror she discovered, over the phone.

He said police eventually managed to break through the door of a property and arrested a woman, after first using a sledgehammer to try to get in.

A spokesperson for the force said yesterday a 52-year-old woman and 26-year-old man were arrested in relation to the incident.

West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service also attended the scene on Tuesday and extinguished a small fire inside the property.

Police revealed on Wednesday that initial enquiries had led them to launch a murder investigation and officers were working to formally identify the man, who has been named locally as "David", and trace his next of kin.

A cordon was put in place on Tuesday, where the quiet cul-de-sac meets Farriers Croft, which is off King's Road, and it was still there when The Telegraph & Argus visited the area today.

Forensic officers, in white suits, have been spotted working in and around the scene throughout Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, while several detectives have also been present.

Detective Chief Inspector Matt Holdsworth, of West Yorkshire Police's Homicide and Major Enquiry Team, said yesterday that officers are working to establish the circumstances that led to the man’s death.  

They have been carrying out house-to-house enquiries and CCTV trawls in the area.

He revealed the team is not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident after the arrests.

The neighbour who was second on the scene said it was a “terrible situation”, while others in the area have described their shock.

Another resident said it had been a "traumatic experience" for the neighbourhood.

DCI Holdsworth said: "This has taken place in what is usually a quiet residential street.

"I understand that this incident has caused concern in the wider community and there is a lot of speculation about what has taken place and those involved.

"We need anyone with information to be passing that on to us."

He added: "The property backs on to Goals sports complex, King's Road, Bradford, and we are also urging anyone who was using the pitches yesterday afternoon who may have seen or heard anything out of the ordinary to please report it."

The T&A has contacted West Yorkshire Police this morning for an update but no further details have been released.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Homicide and Major Enquiry Team (HMET) via Live Chat online or by calling 101, quoting log 1109 of April 16.
