A CRASH on Carlinghow Hill caused traffic chaos in Batley on Wednesday morning. A Vauxhall Astra and a Mercedes E320 collided just above Batley Grammar School at around 8.30am, leading to long delays in either direction. Traffic backed up onto Bradford Road.
Police and medical crews attended but no-one was badly injured in the collision. One resident said: “This has been waiting to happen with the way people ignore parking instructions at peak school hours. Imagine how much worse it’s going to be when the new girls school opens down at the old hospital site.”
