Suspension of refuse collection services

Refuse collection services across Leeds have been suspended because of the bad weather.

A Leeds City Council spokesman said:

"Refuse crews reported for work as usual this morning and have made attempts to carry out their work but have had to turn back for safety reasons.

"Instead, street cleaning and refuse collection staff will be switched onto gritting and snow clearing duties, supporting the work of their colleagues the highways team."
