A large tyre fire ad­ja­cent to the rail­way on Novem­ber 16 meant that trains were un­able to serve Brad­ford In­ter­change for four days, with a full ser­vice only re­stored on Novem­ber 21.

The fire started in Up­per Cas­tle Street. No train ser­vices were able to en­ter or de­part the sta­tion be­cause of smoke cross­ing the rail­way.

Trains between Brad­ford In­ter­change and Leeds were the first to re­sume, with Hal­i­fax trains restart­ing on Novem­ber 21, fol­low­ing guid­ance from the West York­shire Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice on when it was safe to ac­cess the rail­way to test the sig­nalling and carry out in­spec­tions.
