Three youths are being quizzed by detectives over a major fire in Leeds last night.


The trio are being questioned over the blaze at Waterloo Lane, Bramley which broke out at around 8.40pm on bank holiday Monday.


Ten pumps, two aerial appliances and support units were called to deal with the fire on Waterloo Lane, in Bramley.

Four pumps from from Fairweather Green, Hunslet, Moortown and Killingbeck and one aerial appliance from Leeds are still at the scene damping down.

The single storey building has partially collapsed and Waterloo Lane, Waterloo Way and Raynville Road are expected to remain closed for much of today.

No injuries have been reported.

Firefighters from 22 stations across West Yorkshire were called in to bring the fire under control along with specialist officers from across the brigade.

The cause of the fire is not yet known.

Detective Inspector Phil Jackson, of Leeds District CID, said: “We’re working with partners to minimise disruption and I would like to thank local residents for their co-operation.”

Plumes of smoke could be seen across the city and from the M62 motorway.

Leeds family’s agony as devoted father dies after road tragedy

The family of a popular father of two have spoken of their devastation at losing a devoted “father, brother and son” as the driver who caused his death was given a suspended prison sentence.

David Davies, 35, died two months after the collision when he suffered a blood clot as a result of the horror crash which had left him with life changing injuries.


A court heard how Mr Davies was thrown from his motorbike after David Powell pulled out of traffic and did a U-turn without warning into his path

The collision happened on May 21, 2014 near to the entrance of the of the Arla food depot on Pontefract Road, Hunslet, Leeds.

Mr Davies suffered life changing injuries to his hip and pelvis and underwent major surgery.

Leeds Crown Court heard that it was not initially believed that his injuries were life threatening but complications developed.

He suffered a blood clot which travelled to his heart and he died on July 18, 2014 surrounded by his relatives.

Powell, of Parnaby Avenue, Hunslet, pleaded guilty to causing death by careless driving.

The court heard Powell was arrested after the collision, which happened around 4pm. He said he had been in the car with his wife on their way to see a tenant at a property they owned. Powell said he decided to drive into the Arla depot as he wanted to enquire about a job for his son.

Richard Walters, prosecuting, said: “It is the Crown’s case that the defendant either did not check his mirrors or simply did not see him.”

Philip Holden, mitigating, said Powell was full of remorse for what had happened.

He said: “He has been very tearful from the outset about the consequences of his actions.”

Conmen handed 50 years in jail for ‘doorstep terrorism’ across Leeds and West Yorkshire

A gang of doorstep criminals who defrauded elderly and vulnerable people across West Yorkshire out of thousands of pounds have been jailed for nearly 50 years.


The sentencing judge at Leeds Crown Court described their crimes as “terrorism by numbers”.

The court heard how the gang targeted victims aged in their seventies, eighties and nineties at their homes in Leeds, Wakefield, and Huddersfield and in South Yorkshire.

Their main tactics included offering to do building work on their victims’ homes and charging massively inflated prices for substandard work. They would terrorise their victims into paying and take them to cashpoints against their will to draw out money.

They also distracted other victims by posing as ‘water board’ officials to commit some of the offences.

Most of the offences took place between January and May 2014.

The group were brought to justice following a lengthy investigation by the Leeds District Neighbourhood Crime Team and officers in Wakefield.

Members of the group targeted an 83-year-old woman at her home in Huddersfield. She was repeatedly visited and taken against her will to a cashpoint. A total of £1,550 was taken.
