Traffic is building at a bridge in Wakefield following a second strike in two days.

A lorry has struck the bridge on Thornes Lane and police are advising people to avoid the area as they deal with the situation.

It comes after a lorry struck the railway bridge on Doncaster Road yesterday, leaving part of the road closed for hours.
