A police officer and a female passenger have been killed in a tragic road collision which happened on Christmas Day.

The 46-year-old male officer was pronounced dead at the scene following the collision on the A57 in Sheffield, South Yorkshire Police have said. Officers were called to the scene at 8.15pm yesterday (Christmas Day) where the marked BMW police car had been involved in a collision with a silver Citroen while responding to an incident.

A 61-year-old woman from Sheffield, who was a passenger in the Citroen, was rushed to hospital but sadly passed away shortly later. The driver of the Citroen, a 63-year-old man, was also taken to hospital and remains in a seriosu condition. Specialist officers are supporting both families.

Congestion up on the moors...

Queues on New Hey Road around Scammonden Moor due to all the ice and snow up on the tops.

This is between Marsden Gate and Rochdale Road. Traffic reports say this is being exacerbated by motorists trying to avoid the M62.

One lane closed on M62 westbound

One lane currently closed on the M62 westbound due to a broken down vehicle between Brighouse and Ainley Top.

Here’s the scene near Ainley Top:

This sounds like it might be nasty - please avoid the motorway if possible today.

At least there’s an excuse to crack out the Christmas jumper for another day...

Accident on the M62 due to snow

The Boxing Day joy continues. Things are also looking a bit busy on the M62...

We’ve got a lane closed eastbound at junction 21 heading towards Greater Manchetser following a snow-related accident. So careful there. Weather conditions up on the moors are still bad so traffic may be slowed down generally as a result.
