THERE have been traffic delays around Bradford this morning following a lorry fire. 

Firefighters were called to Shipley Airedale Road, where a HGV lorry had a "small engine fire". 

There was also a fuel spillage. 

There were heavy delays around Bradford, going right back to the M606 Staithgate Roundabout at one point. 

The lorry has now been removed from the road and sand has been put down to clear the earlier spillage.

There is still heavy traffic, but vehicles are now able to pass through the road's junction with Croft Street.
