  1. This needs banning! Or the route needs changing.
    The route is a ridiculous circle around most of West Leeds holding thousands of people hostage in their own homes and putting lives at risk should there be a serious incident within the exclusion zone created by road closures. Just so people can run around dressed as carrots!

  2. 2 hours it took me to return to my house after driving around trying to find a way to get home and £20 quid in petrol not to mention my breakfast id just been to get ended uo stone cold and went in the bin!!!!
