Bradford 'chop-shop’ garage raid: Two arrested

Two men, aged 22 and 25 have been arrested after police in West Yorkshire found stolen cars in a "chop shop" raid.

Officers raided a garage after receiving a tip-off from a member of the public.

Two stolen cars were found at the Banner Street garage in Bradford, where parts for three other cars were also recovered.

The men were arrested on suspicion of burglary and released on bail.

Police said one of the cars identified in the raid on Monday was a BMW 520 which was stolen from Pendragon Lane in Bradford earlier this month.

"Chop shops" are places where vehicles are dismantled so the parts can be sold or used to repair other vehicles.
