Homes have been evacuated in Bradford as toxic chemicals linked to drug manufacturing were discovered.
A “disturbance” at a property in Westcroft Road, Great Horton, resulted in police being called to the scene on Saturday afternoon.
The premises were searched – chemicals and evidence of drug production were found.
A man has been arrested on suspicion of manufacturing Class A drugs. He remains in custody.
A cordon was erected for public safety while special forces from the police and fire brigade were deployed.
There is no risk from the chemicals to anyone outside the home where they were found, a West Yorkshire Police spokesman said today.
But the cordon will remain in place for days to allow for the safe removal and disposal of the substances.
A forensic investigation of the property will be launched to aid in the criminal investigation.
Residents living on the street have been warned of further disruption and asked for patience.
