A MOTORWAY was partially blocked and traffic was queuing after a crash.

The collision happened on the M1 southbound carriageway, between junction 39 (Wakefield/Durkar) and junction 38 (Woolley/Huddersfield).

It was first reported at 4.15pm, according to the AA.

The blockage caused congestion until the accident was cleared at 5.38pm - just over an hour later.

Traffic began to ease at that point.
