Extensive road closures are in place today due to the imminent demolition of the Jacob's Well council offices.

Closures started in the early hours of today and are likely to remain until at least 2pm this afternoon.

The demolition is expected to take place some time in the next few hours once final safety checks have been completed and nearby residents evacuated from their homes. Bradford Council is urging people not to come near the demolition site, but we will have extensive coverage throughout the day, including a live video stream.
