Broad Lane: Tight fit as generator winds way to Kirkstall

It was a tight fit as a wide load carrying a 335-tonne electricity generator to Kirkstall wound its way through the streets of West Leeds yesterday.

The load, which came from Goole Docks, was accompanied by a police escort.

Crowds lined the streets of Bramley to see the load, which travelled at a slow speed to accommodate its size on the roads.
