A section of the M62 which was closed earlier this morning when horses escaped has been re-opened.

The horses have been returned to their field after help from West Yorkshire Police and the highways agency.

The road closure was in place between junctions 24 and 25 of the eastbound carriageway and traffic is now backed up to junction 22 so there are still long delays in the area.
