There is a huge police and forensics ongoing in Thornbury Road, Bradford. It is connected to the search for missing Somaiya Begum, 20


West Yorkshire Police (WYP) are currently guarding a number of scenes across the district in connection with Somaiya's disappearance, including a huge cordon in Thornbury Road where a blue tent has been erected at a storage yard off the street.

Forensic officers have been combing the scene throughout the day and were seen forcing their way into storage units at the site. A sniffer dog was also used behind the cordon, which is just five minutes away from Somaiya's home on Binnie Street.

She lived with her grandmother and uncle. That's a strange set-up.
I wonder where her Mum and Dad are? Or any siblings?

It's not enough to just punish the perpetrators. There is no room in the free world for a culture of murder.
