Latest from Highways England:
It's been a stressful day for some
Here’s a video of the lorry fire this morning.
Highways England have revised the opening time of the M62.

Burst water main
Are you affected?
Diversion in place
Highways England’s advice: Diversion is to follow the solid square symbol. Exit at J29 onto the M1 north to J44. Then follow the A639 to roundabout with A642. Take the second exit onto the A642 to re-join M62 at J30.
Highways England says the road should return to normal between 4.45pm and 5pm.
Buses running late
There’s also congestion in the town centre

M62 traffic still affected by earlier lorry fire
A fire on the M62 earlier is still affecting traffic.
A large lorry, believed to be carrying carpet underlay, caught fire on the M62 eastbound between junction 29 and 30.
The fire is now out but delays are expected to go on indefinitely.
A man was threatened with a hammer and a knife by men who robbed him of his mobile phone.
Police are appealing for information after the 21-year-old was threatened in the street at School Lane, Dewsbury Moor last Monday.
Detective Constable Richard Brooke, of Kirklees Robbery Team, said: “These men have both been armed with weapons and, while not physically harming the victim, have put him in fear for his safety.
“We would urge anyone who has witnessed this offence or who has information about the men involved to please call Kirklees Robbery team via 101 or independent crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
The first suspect is described as white, aged in his late 20s to early 30s, between 5ft 11ins to 6ft tall, of average build with short, brushed down, dark hair. He was wearing a dark coloured tracksuit.
The second suspect is described as black, aged in his late 20s to early 30s, of chubby build, between 5ft 9ins to 5ft 10ins tall with short, dark hair.
