Heard Yorkshire Bank got robbed then a van was burnt out and blew up (people thought it was a bomb)...

And then there was some sort of fire near watson street/beckwith street east

Don't know if it was related?

Apparently it was someone going to the bank making a large deposit who got robbed by masked men.

Strange that the Jeep is burnt out so close to the actual bank raid. Usually its a case of getting away first before disposing of the car in some woods etc. The robbers might of stole another vehicle in the car park...the silver Vauxhall Vectra.

A car blowing up would be a good diversion but there must be loads of cctv around there.
