A number of stolen Typhoon diving suits have been recovered by police in Bradford.

67 brand new drysuits of the Typhoon TCS and ladies’ Seamistress variety were taken from the manufacturer.

However, most of the suits had not yet been fitted with valves or boots, rendering them unsaleable.

Following a lead on eBay, Police closed in on a couple from Bishop Auckland, County Durham, who have now been arrested.

Many of the valuable suits were subsequently recovered from Otter Watersports in Bradford.

It is believed the couple had tried to sell them to a few local retailers who, realising something was wrong, contacted Typhoon.

The drysuits appeared on the online auction site after Otter had already boot and valved 10 suits.

A total of 43 suits have now been recovered, meaning there are still another 24 suits unaccounted for.

Divers are being asked to look out for them and let Typhoon know if they see any suspicious TCS or Seamistress suits for sale.
