On searching the occupants and the car, officers found two bags of around 100 wraps of suspected class A-drugs and a large zombie-style knife.

Both occupants of the vehicle, two men from Bradford aged 18 and 31, were arrested on suspicion of possessing class A drugs with intent to supply, and possessing an offensive weapon.
