Have your say

THIS burning lorry is causing huge tailbacks on the M62.

Five fire crews were sent to tackle the blaze on the eastbound carriageway between junction 24 at Ainley Top and junction 25 at Brighouse shortly before 3pm.

The driver’s condition is not immediately known.

These photos were taken by Courier reader Colin Bates from Halifax, who captured the scene on his mobile phone.

The eastbound side has been shut while emergency services dealt with the fire and a diversion is in operation through Huddersfield and Brighouse. There is also severe congestion on the westbound carriageway.
