Cash seized and arrests made in Huddersfield raids

Four people have been arrested and more than £1m seized in connection with suspected money laundering.

The bundles of cash, totalling about £1.3m, were found when police raided two addresses in Crossland Moor, Huddersfield, on Friday afternoon.

A 41-year-old woman and a man, aged 44, were arrested at a property in Thornleigh Road.

A 37-year-old woman and a 35-year-old man were arrested from an address in Pembroke Court.

West Yorkshire Police said they were being held on suspicion of money laundering.

Supt Dave Knopwood, of Kirklees police, said: "The operation was carried out under the Proceeds of Crime Act as we strongly suspected that the cash was linked to serious offences that have taken place in the region."
