Road closed as flooding problems continue in Bradford district

First published in News

Serious flooding has caused one of the main routes between Ilkley and Leeds to be closed.

The A660 between the A65 roundabout at Burley -in-Wharfedale and the A659 roundabout at Otley has now been shut to traffic following persistent rain overnight and today, which has made the road impassable.

Meanwhile, Wharfemeadows Park, north of the River Wharfe in Otley has also been closed due to rising water levels, with eyewitnesses saying some benches are already under water.
