CRASHES either side of the Chain Bar junction on the M62 are causing delays to eastbound and westbound traffic.

There is stop-start traffic due to an accident, now on the shoulder, on the M62 Westbound at Junction 27 with the M621 at Gildersome.

Congestion stretches back to Junction 29, the M1 Lofthouse interchange.

Lane three was re-opened at about 4.05pm after the vehicles were moved to the hard shoulder.


Delays are not helped by usual congestion on this stretch.

Two lanes are also closed and there is queueing traffic for six miles due to a rolled over RV on the M62 Eastbound between Junction 24 at Ainley Top to Junction 25 at Brighouse.

Congestion goes to past Junction 23 for Huddersfield.

Lane one and two have been reopened and the caravan has been recovered.

Travel time is around one hour and 10 minutes past the scene.
