Police are investigating a suspicious death after a body was found in a car in Leeds.

Humberside Police said a 47-year-old man had been found dead in a grey Mazda 3 in De-Bretts Road in the West Yorkshire city.

Tributes have been paid to the man, described by his family as a “kind-hearted” father of three sons.

Humberside Police said a 51-year-old woman and a 43-year-old man had been arrested.

They were both charged with murder and remanded in custody.

Police said there was no ongoing risk to the public.

“Despite the limited information available we are treating this as a suspicious death,” said a spokesperson.

Yorkshire-based police said they could not comment further “at this time” and would issue further information if necessary.

Gemma Warren, who lives close to the scene, said she had lived in the same street for 18 years and added that it was unusual to see a police presence there.

“It’s horrible when it first happened… [and] there was a lot of people in shock but it got a lot quieter after,” she said.

“It’s a strange quiet street but then everyone gets to know the people who live there.”
