Police investigating the find of a badly burnt body in Bradford have arrested two men.

The 39-year-old and 32-year-old were arrested on suspicion of murder yesterday after the body was found near Holme Lane

Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Superintendent Paul Taylor, said: “A post mortem on the body will be conducted today and we are currently working with the coroner to make a formal identification.

“Last night officers attended an address on Eggleston Drive in the Holmewood area of Bradford which will now be the subject of forensic examinations.”

He said they are not connecting the body found near Holme Lane with two bodies found on Tuesday night on New Lane in Tong.

“I believe the answers to this discovery near Holme Lane lie locally and we would ask anyone who may have any information or any witnesses to contact the police immediately at the incident room on 01924 334675,” he added.
