A "SERIOUS accident" has caused delays on a major Bradford route today.

Road closures were in place and at one point, the incident had an impact on all approaches to the roundabout.

An extensive cordon stretched across the scene to allow emergency services to carry out their work. 

Reports from the scene suggest a lorry went over the roundabout from Highfield Road and ended up on Idle Road, by the Lane Ends pub.

A West Yorkshire Police spokesperson said it received the call at 2.15pm. 

A male lorry driver has been taken to the Bradford Royal Infirmary, but West Yorkshire Police has not yet confirmed his condition to the Telegraph & Argus.
