POLICE have arrested two people in North Yorkshire in connection with a large fire which devastated a go-kart track in Bradford.

On Monday November 16 emergency services were called to reports of a large fire at the go-kart track in Spring Mill Street.

Due to the size of the fire, a number of businesses and residents had to evacuate the nearby area for their safety and a number of roads have been closed whilst firefighters tackle the fire.

Yesterday, November 17, officers arrested a 59-year-old man and a 48-year-old woman in Harrogate on suspicion of conspiracy to commit arson.

They were both interviewed by police last night and have been released on bail.

Enquiries remain ongoing.
