A spectacular car crash blocked a major junction in Bradford city centre and caused long rush hour delays.

The incident, involving a black Audi S3 and a silver Vauxhall Corsa, happened on Hamm Strasse at around 3.45pm.

The Audi A3 ended up on its roof and smashed into railings which have been flattened.

Buses were also delayed.
