TRAFFIC was building on the M62 earlier, after a vehicle broke down.

Highways England Traffic Officers were called to the easdtbound carriageway of the motorway, between junction 26 (Chainbar) and junction 27 (Gildersome) at around 6:58am.

The vehicle had broken down in lane one and officers had to close it while dealing with the issue.

This led to delays.

But, just 20 minutes later - at 7:18am - reinforcements had arrived to help tow the vehicle to safety.

All lanes were then reopened.
