THIS was the dramatic scene as police made arrests on one of Keighley's busiest main roads.

Officers – some armed – swooped on a vehicle on the Aire Valley trunk road, close to the Victoria Park roundabout.

West Yorkshire Police say the incident, late Monday afternoon, was "an arrest operation of three men as part of an ongoing enquiry".

This image was captured on dashcam by Keighley businessman Tony Day.

"I arrived at the scene as the traffic backed-up," he said.

"It's not what you expect to come across at rush hour."
