Four cars were involved in a collision on Holmsgarth Road which was reported at 8.43am. No-one was injured.
The vehicles blocked the road, causing a long tailback, before they were cleared at 9.26am.
The cars involved were a Toyota Auris, two Vauxhall Corsas and a Kia Picanto.
Meanwhile, a three-car collision on North Road was reported at 8.52am. Again, no-one was injured.

Shetland woke up this morning to the effects of the so-called “Beast from the East”, which brought snow and freezing temperatures.
