Residents in Leeds have expressed concerns over road safety after a two car smash near their homes.

The incident happened at about 8.50am this morning (Tuesday September 19, 2017) on Victoria Park Avenue, Bramley.

“This is the second time in three years that the same kind of incident has occurred at the same junction. The last one destroyed our wall. On several occasions in the past I have raised the issue of speeding. Surely now is the time to act before there is a fatality.”
