A motorcyclist has been taken to hospital after a crash on the Inner Ring Road in Leeds today.

Emergency services were called at noon to the A58 where there had been a collision involving a white Honda motorbike and a black Mercedes car.

Traffic delays were reported while part of the road was closed due to petrol on the carriageway.

But police said the road had reopened shortly before 2pm.
