Forensic investigators on the scene and armed police have been at the man's home in a cul-de-sac in the Crosland Moor area of Huddersfield.

Mr Yaqub’s family said they did not want to speak at his home in a cul-de-sac in the Crosland Moor area of the town.

But flowers were taken to the house and a number of relatives arrived, some embracing as they went into the property.

Five people have been arrested - three in Huddersfield and two in Bradford.
