Motorists facing long delays due to accidents on M62 and M1 motorways


Motorists are facing delays and long tailbacks this morning after several accidents on the district’s roads.

The A638 Doncaster Road is closed in both directions between the A655 Black Road junction A645 Weeland Road junction because of a serious road traffic accident.

Elsewhere, an earlier accident involving a car and a van closed all three lanes of the M1 northbound between Junction 40 at Ossett and junction 41 at Carr Gate.

And one lane was also shut on the M62 eastbound, due to an accident between junction 22 at Rishworth Moor and junction 23 at Huddersfield.
