Police and ambulances are at the scene on Kirkstall Road on the inbound section, near to the ITV studios.

Traffic is backed up and buses are diverting so will be missing some stops say operators.

The Keighley Bus Company tweeted that the Aire Line is diverting from Kirkstall Viaduct via Burley Road to reach The Headrow. It has apologised for any inconvenience as the diversion means that bus stops on Willow Road and King Street will be missed.
