The Yorkshire Air Ambulance landed on the M62 yesterday to attend to a serious accident.

Courier reader Michael Roberts captured the moment when the helicopter pilot carefully brought the aircraft down on the dual carriageway.

The motorway was shut for around six hours after a vehicle overturned between Ainley Top (junction 24) and the Clifton turn-off (junction 25).

A 61-year-old woman was taken to Leeds General Infirmary with severe injuries

Two other passengers were taken to Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.

Firefighters from Elland and Brighouse attended the scene and used heavy rescue appliances to free the victims from the vehicle.
