Three men have been arrested on suspicion of kidnap after witnesses reported seeing a man being bundled into the back of a car in Pudsey.

At 12.42am yesterday, police received calls about a disturbance in the street in the Claremont Grove, Lowtown and Manor House Street area, with reports of a male being forced into a car and driven away.

Officers attended and scenes were put in place while enquiries were carried out to establish the circumstances and identify those involved.

While at the scene, officers found a large cannabis farm within the former Barclays bank building, at the junction of Lowtown and Manor House Street.

A police spokesperson added:

“Three men have been arrested on suspicion of kidnap in relation to initial incident and they remain in custody. Enquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances and to locate and safeguard the unidentified victim.”

Anyone who witnessed any part of the incident or who has any information that could assist the investigation is asked to contact Leeds District CID via 101 quoting crime reference 13220302427 or online via 101.

A scene remains in place at that location while the cannabis farm is forensically examined and dismantled.
