Former Bradford City player and manager Terry Yorath was taken to hospital last night after a fire at his flat in Leeds.

Mr Yorath, 61, was found collapsed outside his home in Alwoodley after fleeing the kitchen blaze.

He was given oxygen at the scene by fire crews before being taken to hospital by ambulance. He was released after treatment and allowed to return home.

Mr Yorath played for Bradford City between 1982 and 1985, and managed Bradford in the 1989-90 season.

He had earlier enjoyed a successful career with Leeds United and regularly played international football for Wales. He had a five years spell as Wales boss between 1988 and 1993.

He is the father of the television presenter Gabby Logan.
