Queues into Harrogate stretched as far back down Leeds Road to Harewood because of temporary lights replacing normal ones outside the BMW Garage.

Commuters also faced chaos travelling down Knaresborough Road up to the Empress Roundabout and traffic was also building up down Wetherby Road, with vehicles queuing past Plumpton Rocks.
