An elderly man died in a crash between two cars today, which also left six people including two children seriously injured.

Emergency services were scrambled to the accident in Toller Lane, near the junction with Haworth Road, Bradford, at 2pm.

The accident involved a Vauxhall Vectra, travelling towards Bradford from Bingley, and a Suzuki Alto travelling in the opposite direction.

A man in his 80s, who had been travelling in the Suzuki, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Meanwhile, firefighters had to cut a woman free from a Rover after a two-vehicle crash in Bridge Street, near the Leisure Exchange in Bradford city centre this lunchtime. She was taken to Bradford Royal Infirmary spinal injuries.
