Traffic alert
Traffic is at a near standstill throughout much of Leeds city centre tonight after an incident on the M621/M1 is causing traffic to back up through the city.

Multiple people have reported long traffic queues throughout various parts of Leeds.

Elland Road is at a standstill, as are most entry slip roads to get onto the M621, after an incident on the M1 - thought to be a car fire - is backing traffic up right into the centre.

Bus passengers are also affected, with First Bus reporting long delays in Leeds due to the effects of the incident.
