A woman who fell from an M62 bridge this morning is in a critical but stable condition, say police.

The woman fell from a bridge between junction 26, Chain Bar, and junction 27, Gildersome, onto the westbound carriageway at 10.17am (Tuesday).

The motorway was closed in both directions while an air ambulance landed to take the woman to Leeds General Infirmary with serious injuries.

The lane where she landed had been closed for roadworks.

Police opened the carriageways at about 12.30pm.
