The M62 has been closed eastbound between J22, A672 (Rishworth Moor) and J23, A640 (Huddersfield), because of a serious accident involving a taxi and a lorry

There is heavy traffic on the motorway, with tailbacks of around eight miles, and congestion is stretching back to junction 21 (Milnrow).

Traffic is also heavy on the westbound carriageway as people slow down to look at the accident.

The motorway isn’t expected to re-open until midnight.
