FOUNDER of Bradford car retailer JCT600, Jack Tordoff, has flipped his Porsche onto its roof in a crash in Apperley Bridge.

The crash, which only involved Mr Tordoff's Porsche 4x4, was reported to police at 4.21pm. Witnesses have said the vehicle is on its roof.

A spokesperson for JCT600 confirmed the 83-year-old was driving his car when the crash happened.

He said: "JCT600 can confirm Jack was in the accident, and no-one else was involved.

"He has got minor injuries but he is fine."

The car is a black Porsche 4x4 vehicle and is currently being guarded by police.

It happened on Apperley Lane, Apperley Bridge, and is blocking one lane and causing delays heading into and away from Bradford. Police, an ambulance and the fire service have been on the scene.

The crash occurred near the Moody Cow pub, a couple of hundred metres away from the JCT600 head office.

A member of staff at the Moody Cow said Mr Tordoff had been turning around in the pub's car park, before turning back onto Apperley Lane and colliding with a bollard and fence in the middle of the road, rolling the car onto its roof.

JCT600 chairman Mr Tordoff, 83, founded the company in 1946, and has seen his company grow to have 50 locations across the UK employing, more than 2,000 people and in 2017/18 achieved a turnover of £1.25 billion.
