Two lanes were closed on the westbound carriageway of the M62 at Ainley Top after a 39-year-old Sowerby Bridge man was flung from his Honda bike. He suffered back and neck injuries in the accident just before 6pm yesterday, causing long tailbacks in the area. He was taken to Huddersfield Royal Infirmary for treatment and his injuires were found to be not serious. The carriageway was fully reopened within an hour.
