A MAJOR road in Bradford is expected to be closed "for some time" after a bad oil spillage.

A clean-up is underway at Queen's Road - close to Midland Road and Manningham Lane - which is currently covered in a thick brown substance.

A further update on the closure is expected later today.

A spokesperson for Bradford Council said: "Queen's Road between Manningham Lane and Midland Road is closed due to a spillage and diversions are in place. It is likely to be closed for some time to allow for a clean up to take place and we will update people when it re-opens."
