A major route out of Leeds was closed today for a police reconstruction.

Kirkstall Road was shut in one direction away from the city earlier this morning. It reopened at 9.40 am.

The Major Collision and Enquiry Team was carrying out a reconstruction, West Yorkshire Police said this morning.

It is thought to be related to the death of 33-year-old cyclist John Harkins, who was killed in a collision with a car on Kirkstall Road on Monday November 14.

The team behind the new project: L-R: Jason Shipstone,  Head of R&D, Drax Group; Caspar Schoolderman,  Director of Engineering, C-Capture Ltd; Andy Koss,  CEO Drax Power; Prof Christopher Rayner,  Technical Director, C-Capture Ltd; Carl Clayton,  Research and Innovation Engineer, Drax Group.
