A woman has been injured in a collision between a car and a lorry which has forced the closure of the M62 in both directions at Chain Bar.

The incident occurred on the eastbound carriageway between junction 25, Brighouse, and junction 26, Chain Bar, with full closures of the motorway at 4.50pm.

The female driver of the car was initially trapped in her vehicle, but has now been freed and is receiving treatment by paramedics for leg injuries.

The Yorkshire Air Ambulance has also been called to the scene.

Children were also travelling in the car, but no injuries have been reported.

It is not yet known when the road will re-open.
