EMERGENCY services were called after a child was trapped under a vehicle in Greengates this morning.

The boy sustained serious injuries in an accident involving a silver Renault Scenic.

Contingency crews from Idle, Bingley and Fairweather Green Fire Stations were called at 7.48am by West Yorkshire Ambulance to the junction of Harrogate Road, New Line and Leeds Road to reports of the child being trapped under a vehicle - but he released prior to their arrival.

A police spokes man said Leeds Road was likely to be closed for "some time" and that officers were trying to contact the victim's family.
