Traffic has descended into chaos for the third time this week after an accident on the M62.
The westbound carriageway of the motorway between Rishworth Moor and Brighouse have been badly gridlocked this morning after two cars were involved in a collision in the Scammonden area.
The traffic has caused major delays and football fans heading to today's clash between Huddersfield Town and Liverpool have been held up.
Highways Agency say the accident has now been moved over onto the hard shoulder although there are still ongoing delays, with motorists being advised to avoid the motorway if possible.

Strong winds a problem now on the M62
Police are warning of high winds on the M62 over the tops. Drive carefully.
Trials and tribulations
Looks like there were a few ‘hiccups’ for Huddersfield Town fans on the journey to Anfield this afternoon. Hope you all arrive/d safely. UTT!
Another crash near Huddersfield
Reports of another crash Westbound near junction 24 at Huddersfield. We’ll keep you updated when we have more details.
A bit of magic needed
This is the only way to travel on the M62. Call Harry Potter.
Blake's landed at Anfield
The Examiner’s football writer Blake has arrived at Anfield after being delayed on the M62. But he and Rory have had to park half an hour’s walk away. No parking privileges for journos. Hopefully the other greedy hacks will have left them some lunch...
Latest on the delays
Highways England is reporting delays of 30 minutes - which could be worse. Easy for me to say.
They estimate the motorway getting back to ‘normal’ - whatever that is - between 1.45pm and 2pm.
Don't you just love the M62?
We all know the M62 at Scammonden is the highest motorway in England. After all there’s a sign that tells you so!
The weather up there is always different, no matter what time of year you drive over the tops. Foggy today. Nice. Not.
Our man Blake's on his way too...
You’ll be pleased to hear the Examiner’s football writer Blake Welton is feeling your pain on the M62. He’s stuck in the queues too. Told you to borrow the Examiner’s helicopter, Blake!
I'm sure you'll get there!
The M62 is a pain at the best of times but at least it’s moving. Kick-off’s not until 3pm so you’ll still make it in time for a pint or two beforehand!
This is what happened
Looks like this is what was responsible for the Westbound delays on the M62, tailbacks to junction 25 at Brighouse. We’re told the traffic is moving at the other side of Scammonden so it’s just a case of being patient I reckon.
Crawling to Anfield
Sorry to all you Town fans who are stuck in slow-moving traffic on the M62 heading for Liverpool. As if the lack of trains today wasn’t enough!
We understand the delays were caused by a two-car crash at Scammonden - it’s foggy up there - but that the vehicles are now on the hard shoulder.
