Happily, the second broken down vehicle which led to lane closures on the M62 this morning has now been removed.

The second incident happened westbound between junctions 29 (Lofthouse) and 28 (Tingley). All lanes are now open again and traffic is said to be easing.

There were severe delays earlier between junctions 27 (Gildersome) and 26 (Chain Bar) due to a broken down lorry but that has also been removed.

Happily the broken down lorry which led to severe delays on the M62 this morning has now been removed.
