THREE lanes of a major motorway have reopened after emergency repairs were undertaken.

The works were taking place on the M62 westbound carriageway, between junction 29 (M1) and junction 27 (Gildersome).

Workers were dealing with a pothole.

Three lanes (of four) were closed due to the works.

But they all reopened at around 2:30pm.

Traffic is still said to be queueing.
