The investigation is connected to a serious crash in Bradford which happened about an hour after the robbery took place.

A black Vauxhall Corsa and a black and red BMW motorcycle crashed on Harrogate Road, at the junction with Leeds Road, at about 3.40pm.

The Corsa crashed with the motorcycle as it was turning right onto Leeds Road. Police believe the motorbike was travelling in convoy with a quad bike.

The teenage motorcyclist was thrown off his bike and suffered serious injuries. The quad bike’s rider fled the scene.

West Yorkshire Police want to speak to anyone who witnessed the crash or the circumstances leading up to the incident, or anyone with video footage of the incident.

Officers would also like to hear from anyone who may know anything about the quad bike, who was riding it and where it might be located.

Anyone with information should call police on 101 quoting log reference number 1034 of August 1.
