Motorists faced severe delays on the M62 this afternoon following what is thought to be a multi-vehicle crash.

All lanes were closed between junction 24 (Ainley Top) and junction 22 (Ripponden) on the westbound stretch of the motorway, while emergency services worked at the scene.

A Highways England spokesperson said all vehicles have now been moved to the hard shoulder and all lanes are now open.

Drivers are warned to expect delays while the scene clears.
