The M62 remains partially closed eastbound after a van crashed into the central reservation this morning.

The van spilled its load of Lucozade bottles across all three lanes of the eastbound carriageway in the accident at about 11.30am today (Friday) between junction 22, Ripponden, and junction 23, Outlane.

All three lanes eastbound were initially closed while the debris was cleared and one lane westbound was closed.

Police have now opened all three lanes on the westbound carriageway. But two lanes remain closed on the eastbound carriageway.

It is understood no-one was seriously injured in the accident.
