The crash occurred on the Leeds to Bradford Interchange line, which has now been blocked. Picture: Bruce Rollinson.

Services between these stations had previously faced delay this morning following a fault with the signalling system.

This forced services operating between Leeds and the Bradford Interchange to run at reduced speeds, causing 20-30 minute delay.

Passengers travelling to Bradford are advised to board Leeds to Bradford Forster Square instead.

Those cancelling their journeys may alternatively be able to claim compensation at a later date.

Update

Disruption between Leeds and Bradford Interchange has now ended. Services are no longer affected by this problem and will be returning to normal.
