A company spokesman said: "Service 1, 6, 8,27,28, 85 and x84 may be delayed. Reports of a pedestrian knockdown at the junction of St Michael's Road and Otley Road."

Earlier in the day, a motorcyclist came off of his bike at the roundabout near Rodley.

It happened in Rodley Lane at about 2pm.

The man, in his fifties, was treated at the scene before being taken to hospital.

Police closed the road while they investigated, which caused lots of traffic around much of west Leeds.

The road was reopened around 5pm, but there is still lots of disruption in the area.

The man remains in hospital, where his condition is said to be stable.
