Murder squad detectives investigating the killing of two men whose bodies were found by a roadside want to trace a man who may have left the UK.

The bodies of Shahbzada Muhammed Imran, 27, from Bradford, and Ahmedin Sayed Khyel, 35, from London, were found dead on New Lane, Bradford, on Tuesday.

Police want to speak to Mohammed Zubair, 31, but detectives believe he has left the UK.

Two women have been remanded in custody over the deaths.

Senior investigating officer Det Supt Dick Nuttall said: "As part of our investigations, we want to speak to 31-year-old Mohammed Zubair.

"Our inquiries suggest Mr Zubair left the country on Wednesday, 11 May."

On Monday morning two women were remanded in custody charged with murder following the deaths.
