Mystery surrounds a dramatic police chase on the outskirts of Huddersfield.

Readers contacted the Examiner over what one described as an “armed police chase” involving marked and unmarked police vehicles.

It is believed the police pursuit came along Penistone Road and past the Morrison’s superstore at Waterloo.

A reader photographed the vehicles apparently parked up in Southfield Road near the junction with De Lacey Avenue in Almondbury.

The man said he first saw the “armed police chase” near Morrison’s and said all the police vehicles were SUVs, two of them unmarked.

He added that it “looked like they were chasing someone.”

The drama happened at around 2.30pm on Saturday.

There were also reports that the police helicopter was seen hovering over the same location in the Lepton area at around the same time.

A spokesman for West Yorkshire Police said the incident was part of an “on-going, active police investigation” and no further details could be released.
