A two-vehicle accident and snowy conditions has severely slowed traffic on the M62 at Scammonden Dam today.

All lanes have now reopened but traffic is still moving very slowly.

Highways England tweeted: “#M62 is now blocked in both directions for an air ambulance to land btwn J23-J22, following a collision inv a lorry. Long delays westbound.”
