It follows reports of long delays on the M1 in West Yorkshire this morning due to ongoing bridge repairs.

Picture shows repairs being carried out at motorway junction
Just for your knowledge, here’s what’s been happening at the Lofthouse junction between the M1 and M62 this morning.
Four children and two adults taken to hospital
Just spoken to the fire service who assisted at the scene of the collision in Bradley this morning.
They say that six people - including four children - have been taken to hospital.
Crews from Huddersfield and Cleckheaton attended the collision this morning but luckily nobody was trapped. Rescue services looked after the casualties - who they said had been on a school run - until the ambulances came. The two adult drivers and four children - two of whom were high school age and the other two slightly younger - were taken to HRI. Their injuries are not thought to be serious and watch commander Andy Wooller said they were “suffering from shock more than anything else”.
The fire service stayed at the scene to help police clear up fuel and debris spilled on the road and assist with the traffic.
