POLICE have revealed more details about the series of police cordons which blocked off part of Little Horton today. 

The cordons were seen on Cecil Avenue and Horton Park Avenue as well as ones on the streets leading off it.

Footage sent to the T&A shows at least two police cars and an ambulance working at the scene just before 10pm last night.

West Yorkshire Police said officers sighted a silver BMW driving at speed in the Great Horton area at 9.15pm yesterday (Monday, September 21).

Police officers were in a marked police car in the area when the BMW turned into Cecil Avenue and then collided with a pedestrian who was walking on the pavement.

The male pedestrian, in his 70s, was seriously injured as a result of the collision and was taken to hospital for urgent medical treatment.

A 24-year-old man from Bradford has been arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and remains in custody at this time.

Due to the circumstances of this collision the matter has been referred to the Independent Office for Police Conduct for further investigation.

LIVE UPDATES: Police incident in the Cecil Avenue area

The closure of the busy route caused some traffic problems on Great Horton Road earlier today with the AA reporting "very slow traffic due to [a] police incident".

A resident nearby told the T&A: "It's a very extensive cordon. 

"It's a busy route used by a lot of people, with entrances to the park and a GP surgery so it's going to cause some problems this morning for people."

Here's what the scene looked like this morning...
