A badly burned body which was found in Bradford has been identified by police.

Duane Eddie Coleman, 33, from the city, was found in a bonfire by firefighters near Holme Lane in Tong on Thursday.

Two men aged 39 and 32 have appeared in court. One is accused of his murder and perverting the course of justice and the other the latter charge.

Police said they had also arrested a further six men and two women on suspicion of perverting the court of justice.

The men, aged between 19 and 29, and women aged 35 and 47 were arrested at various addresses in the Bradford area.

The two men, Jason Lowther, 39, of Peverell Close, who has been charged with murder and perverting the course of justice, and Levi Ibbotson, 32, of Wenborough Lane, charged with perverting the course of justice, have both been remanded in custody.

They are due to appear at the city's crown court for a trial on 3 October.

Mr Coleman was found several hundred yards away from the site where the bodies of two men were found in New Lane near its junction with Raikes Lane two days earlier.

Police say there is no connection between the incidents.
