First Bus West Yorkshire tweeted: "Delays to services across the entire Leeds network of up to two hours and 10 minutes due to a combination of the Youth Strike for Climate Change Protest in Leeds City Centre, Black Friday shoppers and peak time traffic causing extensive congestion and delays."

All First Bus services through Leeds city centre are affected and Arriva services 202 and 203 are diverting over Tetley's bridge in both directions due to the gridlocked traffic.

Yorkshire Tiger and Aireline services are also severely delayed.

Last week the city came to a standstill for most of the day as police closed part of Armley Gyratory after a man fell from the bridge.

On Wednesday night this week, cars barely moved around Albion Street and The Headrow after a temporary signal light failed.
