Two people have been taken to hospital after a car accident in Keighley town centre today.

A Toyota people carrier flipped onto its side in the incident at the junction of Oakworth Road and West Lane.

Keighley firefighters had to free a man and woman from the front seats of the vehicle.

Oakworth Road was blocked following the accident, which occurred just before 12.45pm, but traffic is now flowing again.

Watch commander Steve Moorhouse, from Keighley fire station, said the cause of the accident was currently unknown.

He said: "When we arrived the vehicle was on its side and the lady and gentleman were trapped by the seatbelts.

"We took the seats out from the back of the people carrier and we also took the windscreen out."

Firefighters took the man and woman out of the vehicle on boards so they could be treated by paramedics. They were then taken to Airedale Hospital.

A spokesman for Airedale and North Bradford police said the injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.
