The incident occurred at 9.21pm but West Yorkshire Police have been tight-lipped about the operation saying only that it was "very sensitive" and involved a "firearms warrant".

But a witness said six men had been "frogmarched" into police vehicles and the incident was part of Huddersfield's ongoing 'gang wars'.
