Traffic chaos hits Leeds inner ring road

Have your say

There was rush hour-style traffic in Leeds this morning from 6am as major roadworks on the inner ring road meant lane closures.

Traffic was backing up in all directions leading into the city as work on the underpass near the old Yorkshire Post building continued, the road not due to open until 10am today.
