Anyone in Halifax/Bradford know what’s going on?

Local TV news last night said they were dumping large volume of hard-core down a ventilation shaft, to prevent major collapse of the tunnel in one area.
In theory this is reversible, and might prevent catastrophic failure, but obviously won't make reopening easier.

Flooded and being filled in apparently.

There was some stuff about the work being halted but it’s all a bit vague.

Aye, I saw that and it’s what prompted the question.

Sounds like both the campaign and Bradford Council are keen to know what’s going on?
