Motorists face delays this morning (Monday) after two accidents on the M62.

One lane is closed and there is queuing traffic on the westbound carriageway between junction 31 at Castleford and junction 30 at Rothwell.

There are also delays eastbound because of an earlier accident.

A Ford Transit van and a Mercedes Luton were involved in a collision between junction 31 at Castleford and junction 32 at Pontefract which caused a load of gym weights to be shed across the carriageway.

All lanes are re-open eastbound but traffic is still heavy.
