"We are currently seeing delays to services 4/4F/16 and 42 due to a road traffic collision on Armley Gyratory." tweeted First Bus.

The bus company confirmed further delays to Bradford services tweeting:

"Due to an RTC at Armley Gyratory our 72/X6/X11 are diverting towards Bradford.

"Our 72/X11 services are using Kirkstall road/ Canal road and our X6 services are using Burley Road/ Canal road."

A road closure has since been put in place between A58 Wellington Road and A643 Ingram Distributor in order to allow recovery work to take place.

Update: The road has now reopened to traffic but queues and lengthy delays remain.
