THE M62 is virtually a car park for many this morning after an accident closed a stretch of the motorway.

A collison between two vans and a motorbike left one person seriously injured and the motorway closed between junction 26 Chain Bar and junction 27 Gildersome.

Motorists stuck in their cars on the M62 and nose-to-tail A roads took to microblogging platform Twitter to let others know what was going on.
