Motorists are facing tailbacks on the M62 after one accident on the M62 led to three more.

The minor crash happened around midday today (Saturday), but then there was a further three accidents because of motorists not fully concentrating as they tried to see what was going on with the earlier accident, according to the Western Area Roads Policing Team.

There is currently queueing traffic on the M62 westbound at junction 22, A672 (Rishworth Moor) and matrix signs are set to 40 miles per hour.

All lanes have re-opened, although travel time is 15 minutes, with congestion back to junction 25, A644 (Brighouse).
