THERE has been a crash involving a white van and a black Ford Focus in Bradford this afternoon.

West Yorkshire Police said they were called to the incident on Bridge Street at 3:07pm. The log number for the crash is 1067.

Traffic was diverted and one reader rang to tell the Telegraph & Argus that it was causing severe problems for drivers coming down Wakefield Road into Bradford.

She said there were tailbacks all the way to the roundabout on Bowling Back Lane, with many drivers unsure as to what exactly was going on. 

West Yorkshire Police confirmed later that one driver involved in the collision has gone to hospital for a check up.

The force confirmed that traffic had been cleared and the log had closed at 4:35pm.
