Heavy snow has fallen on the M62 - with police warning of tricky driving conditions and delays.

At around 1am today, police said all lanes of the motorway were covered in snow.

PC Martin Willis, who covers a stretch of the M62 that includes junction 26 at Chain Bar, tweeted: “The snow is getting heavy now with all lanes covered. Please drive with extra care!”

On Saturday night, police had reported two accidents, one in the third lane eastbound before J22, Sowerby Bridge.

The second was reported earlier and involved a three-vehicle collision westbound between J24 A629 (Ainley Top) and J22 A672 (Rishworth Moor).



Drivers are asked to expect delays and to allow extra time for the snowy conditions and delays related to the traffic collisions.
