Police were called this morning and the cordon remains in place.

The incident has had a severe knock-on effect on traffic through Leeds and much of the city centre is subject to queuing traffic and long delays.

It is thought an earlier incident when a man fell from a bridge onto the A64 causing the Inner Ring Road to close has created increased traffic in other areas.

The roads around Quarry House and St James Hospital also remain very busy following the incident.
