Motorists in Leeds faced rush hour delays after a car collided with a set of traffic lights this afternoon (Tuesday).

The crash happened at 4pm on New Road in Yeadon, when a black Vauxhall Zafira collided with traffic lights at the junction with Whack House Lane.

Police closed the road until around 5.40pm while the scene was cleared and there were delays and diversions to bus services.

But it has now reopened and services are running again as normal.
