PART of the M62 will be closed from 8pm tonight.

The westbound carriageway of the major motorway will be shut between junction 29 (Lofthouse Interchange) and junction 28 (Tingley) overnight.

It is so technology works can be undertaken.

The closure begins at 8pm and the carriageway will reopen at 6am tomorrow morning.

A diversion route will be in place.

A Highways England spokesperson said: "Diversion in place via Highways England and Local Highway Authority roads."
