Man uses ‘DIY escape route’ to evade police


Police are searching for a wanted man who evaded capture at his home by dropping into an escape route under the floor.

The “very skinny” suspect performed the manoeuvre while officers waited at the front door.

West Yorkshire Police said he had installed a metal bar to reinforce the entrance, giving himself more time to get away as officers tried to get inside.

The “DIY escape route” led to a neighbour’s house and was discovered after officers were forced to use hydraulic cutting equipment to get inside.

“Bolt hole, that’s one way to do it,” the Leeds West police team tweeted, along with a picture showing a square-shaped hole cut out of the floorboards.
