What we know so far

The M62 was closed this morning after a ‘distressed’ man was spotted on a bridge near Brighouse.

More police incidents

Apart from the M62 troubles this morning there’s a couple of police incidents we’re looking into.

M62 problems easing - hopefully

Traffic is said to be starting to clear on the M62 and the front of the queue is moving. That’s really good news.

All lanes re-opened

All lanes are re-opened on the M62 now Westbound between junction 26 at Chain Bar and 25 at Brighouse. But don’t expect things to get any better quickly.
