Two cars were destroyed in a blaze last night at York Street, Rastrick.

Brighouse and Elland firefighters were called to a detached garage fire at 8.20 pm.

By the time they arrived the garage was well ablaze.

It gutted the interior of the garage and a Ford Fiesta which was being broken up for scrap.

An MG Roadster parked outside was also destroyed.

Brighouse Watch Commander Nigel Dodd said the petrol tank from the Fiesta had been removed but fuel had spilled onto the floor and sparks from tools ignited it.
