A SECOND broken down vehicle in less than an hour on the same stretch of the M62 caused further delays this morning.

Highways England Traffic Officers spotted the vehicle on the eastbound carriageway between junction 26 (Chainbar) and junction 27 (Gildersome) at about 7:45am.

This was less than an hour after another vehicle had broken down in the same area.

Like that incident earlier, this vehicle had also broke down in lane one.

This caused traffic to build as officers headed to the scene.

After 55 minutes they were able to move the vehicle to a place of safety and all lanes were back to full use at 8:41am.
