Police are appealing for witnesses to a collision involving two HGV lorries on the M62.

The motorway was closed between 23 Outlane and J22 Saddleworth yesterday following the crash in which one of the drivers suffered serious head injuries.

Police believe that one of the HGV cabs collided with the rear of the second one, causing both to cross the central reservation and enter the eastbound carriageway.

The 48-year-old driver of the lead HGV cab suffered serious head injuries and was airlifted to the Leeds General Infirmary where he is in a critical but stable condition.

Meanwhile, the other driver involved received treatment for minor injuries at Oldham Royal Infirmary.

Police are appealing for any witnesses to contact them.
