Whitehall Road, Gelderd Road, and others on the way to the M621 have been backed up for long distances.

Roadworks at the Tommy Wass junction in Beeston where the A653 Dewsbury Road meets with Old Lane have contributed to the problem.

Metro said there were delays of more than one hour to Holbeck services, with the 54, 55, 65 and 75 affected.
