A 27-year-old woman from Bradford has been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit robbery over the armed robbery of Wellstone Rise Post Office, Swinnow Lane on Tuesday, writes Keely Bannister.

The woman was detained after firearms officers executed a warrant at an address in the Holmewood area of Bradford in the early hours of this morning, West Yorkshire Police revealed in a statement on their website.

Detectives from Leeds District CID are continuing to carry out enquiries into the incident which saw two masked men, armed with what appeared to be a handgun, enter the shop and threaten staff before taking cash and leaving the scene in a car driven by a third man.

A stolen silver BMW that was used in the crime was later found abandoned in the Holmewood area and was recovered for forensic examination.

Anyone with any information should contact Leeds District CID via 101 quoting crime reference 13190450263 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
