Delays on M62 after two crashes

There's some nasty congestion on the M62 going into rush hour after two crashes this afternoon.

There's very slow traffic due to an accident on M62 Westbound at J27 M621 (Gildersome).

It happened just before 3pm. Congestion up to to J29 (M1 Lofthouse interchange).

Lane three of three re-opened just after 4pm after the vehicles were moved to the hard shoulder. Delays are not helped by usual congestion on this stretch.

Two lanes are closed and there's queuing traffic due to s rolled over caravan on the M62 Eastbound from J24 A629 (Ainley Top) to J25 A644 Wakefield Road (Brighouse).

Congestion past J23 (Huddersfield). Cameras show lane one and two (of three) are closed, leaving drivers to crawl past the scene in lane three.

The caravan is in the process of being recovered. Travel time is around 45 minutes.
