Two girls, aged 16 and 17, were also in the Seat Leon car, which police said was travelling at speed when it crashed.

They, along with the taxi driver, were treated in hospital for non-life threatening injuries, West Yorkshire Police said.

The force said it was still carrying out inquiries to establish the full circumstances of the crash and the time leading up to it.
