West Yorkshire Police said no-one was hurt when the grey Ford Focus and silver Vauxhall Corsa were in collision just after the first tunnel on the ring road.

But the vehicles were blocking the carriageway and the lane closure caused tailbacks stretching to Sheepscar junction.

Police said that by around 8.10am the road had been cleared.
