A MAN says two cars set on fire on the same road had been abandoned months earlier.
Hardip Singh said efforts to get them shifted from Leonard Street in Fartown had failed.
He said people had complained to the police and the Sadeh Lok Housing Association which owns homes on the road.
Mr Singh, 31, lives in Deighton, and his brother, Sukhy, lives on Leonard Street with his wife and young child.
The two cars - a Renault Laguna and a Rover 214 - were set on fire at 3.20pm on Saturday.
Mr Singh said: "People on the street had asked for these cars to be removed for about three months, but nothing happened.
"They were smashed and vandalised and a danger to young families."
One of the cars was so close to a house the fire spread to a gutter.
The police could find no record of complaints to them, but have promised to send an officer to try to get the burned-out cars shifted.
Sadeh Lok housing services manager Paul Dolan said there had been complaints about the cars.
He added: "We were aware of the abandoned cars and our housing officers had spoken to the police with regard to moving them and we were also liaising with Kirklees Council."
But he said the problem was often trying to find out who owned abandoned cars.
It was hoped the cars would now be shifted quickly and they were continuing to liaise with the police and council.
