Earlier today, one local told Yorkshire Live: ‘It’s a bit of a shock, it’s usually quiet round here so you don’t usually see police, not like this anyway.
‘It’s usually quiet here, but police said ”don’t worry” to us but we don’t know anything.’
While another resident added: ‘You don’t really want to see all this on your doorstep’
Detective Chief Inspector Rob Routledge, who is leading the investigation team, said: ‘We would really like to hear from anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious in the early hours of this morning, or has any information which they think could help with our inquiries.
‘No matter how small you think that information may be, please do get in touch with us.
