Suspected cases of arson are being investigated after a van and a motorbike were set alight on the same Bradford street.

Firefighters responded to the incidents at around 2.30am this morning (28 Jan. 19) on Necropolis Road, Lidget Green.

Whilst attending to the van, which had been set alight on a driveway, the crews were alerted to another blaze. 

A motorbike had been torched near a house, causing the gas supply to be ruptured.

Two houses had to be evacuated whilst the gas board came to isolate the gas and make sure the house was safe.

Both fires have been reported to police.
