Roadworks which caused long delays on the A58 yesterday were finally removed around 7.30 pm last night.

Traffic lights were installed on Godley Lane near Shibden Park following a burst of a water main on Wednesday afternoon.

Engineers were able to repair the pipe and ensure that the water supply continued to houses in the surrounding area.

They returned Thursday morning to repair the damage caused to the road surface, which caused huge tailbacks towards Halifax, Hipperholme and Northowram.
