A three way smash caused traffic chaos on M62 this morning.
All three lanes heading eastbound between junction 24 at Ainley Top and junction 25 at Brighouse were briefly closed during the incident, which was reported just before 7am.
The Highways Agency said the crash involved three cars all travelling in the same direction which ended up with two being stuck in lane three near to the central reservation and one on the hard shoulder.
No-one was hurt.
Police closed a short stretch to remove the cars before opening two of the lanes.
The third lane opened just after 8am but massive tailbacks occurred until around 9am.
