TRAFFIC was queueing on a motorway this morning after a crash amid a strong wind warning.

The collision happened on the westbound carriageway of the M62, between junction 24 (Ainley Top) and junction 23 (Huddersfield).

It was first reported at 6.41am, according to the AA. 

National Highways put out a warning on its traffic flow website about strong winds in the junction 23 area, urging people to slow down.

Footage from cameras along the motorway from the agency at around 7.15am showed congestion on both sides of the carriageway at junction 25 (Brighouse), as well as at junctions 24 and 23.

The average speed at junction 23 on the westbound carriageway sat at 45 miles per hour (mph), dropping as low as 27mph at junction 24, and then 30 mph at junction 25.

The crash was moved to the hard shoulder at 7.19am but there was still congestion on the motorway.

It was resolved and traffic was easing by 8.26am.

The Telegraph & Argus has contacted West Yorkshire Police for details.
