EMERGENCY services have rushed to a crash which has shut a major Bradford road this morning.

Police say there is a possible gas leak causing multiple emergency vehicles to be in attendance.

Drivers have been told to avoid Thornton Road as it is closed both ways from Hockney Road to Hollings Road due to the collision, near the Mercedes garage.

Police have placed a 200-metre cordon in the area, according to the Telegraph & Argus' live traffic and travel page.

West Yorkshire Police, Northern Gas, and West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service have been approached for more details.
