A CYCLIST has been taken to Leeds General Infirmary after a crash this afternoon. 

Emergency services, including police and paramedics, were called to Longside Lane, off Thornton Road, just before 2.50pm. 

A reader shared this picture of the scene and there appears to be a cordon in place blocking the road. 

Yorkshire Ambulance Service said it sent an ambulance, a rapid response vehicle and the Hazardous Area Response Team.

A West Yorkshire Police spokesperson said: "Police were called to a report of a collision involving a van and a cyclist in Longside Lane, Bradford.

"The cyclist, a man in his thirties, has been taken to hospital with a suspected head injury.

"Enquiries are continuing at the scene."
