A crash earlier this morning closed the M621 in Leeds City Centre, with drivers commuting reporting huge delays.

Highways England confirmed the road is expected to be closed between J3 and J4 for the 'morning peak period' to allow West Yorkshire Police to conduct investigations.

There is no official diversion route but Highways England advised motorists to join the A653 Meadow Road roundabout and follow it round to rejoin at J4.
