Two lanes of the eastbound M62 remain closed after a van overturned, shedding its load of drinks cans across the motorway.

Police initially shut both carriageways of the busy motorway, but all three westbound lanes and one eastbound lane have now reopened.

Work to remove the vehicle appears to be nearing completion.

The van driver is believed to have sustained minor injuries.

The incident happened on the M62 Eastbound between junction 22 at Rishworth Moor and junction 23 at Huddersfield.

The incident has caused lengthy delays.

One driver, who was heading for Bradford from Lancashire, said: "Traffic's crawling really slowly over the moors. I've moved about quarter of a mile in the last 45 minutes."
