The man at the centre of a swoop involving alleged illegal chemicals claims he is a "chemical enthusiast".
A 54-year-old man was arrested and is assisting police with enquiries after police executed a warrant on his property on Oxford Street, Bridlington, this morning (August 4).
The pre-planned operation took place following reports of illegal chemicals being stored at the property.
The man claims on his social media account that he is "a chemical enthusiast serving the chem and pyro community with chemicals, professionally, competitively and courteously".
Around 40 homes on Oxford Street have now been evacuated as the explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) began work on the man's property.
