  1. Why do you keep using this photo of Beeston road for everything that happens in Beeston. Incident was no where near here and this pic is from an accident about 4 years ago.

    1. Thanks for your comment Samantha, unfortunately we only have a relatively small selection of stock photos that we can use. We did clearly state at the end of the article that this was a stock shot.

    1. Hi Fiona, the name of the road is Ring Road Beeston Park from Dewsbury Road up to the water tower where it becomes Midddleton Park Road, then Ring Road Middleton from the leisure centre down to Hunslet cemetery.
