Reports are coming in that a lorry has struck a bridge on the outskirts of Wakefield.

Traffic is already starting to build on Doncaster Road after the HGV apparently struck Red Beck Bridge near Crofton.

The bridge has been the scene of several lorry crashes in recent years and calls were made just last month to prevent any further incidents.

More details of the latest crash as we get them.
