BRADFORD FIRE UPDATE 17 November 2020
Fire crews now have the fire under control, but they have told us it will continue to burn for a couple more days as they put it out.
There are still some local roads closed, but some have now reopened.
The advice remains the same for now - keep windows and doors shut and avoid travelling in and out of the area.
There are still some train services affected from Bradford Interchange so please check before you travel. Even though some services are running, they are reduced and they are not making all their usual stops.
Our staff will continue to stay away from the area for now but our contractors will attend repairs.
