M62 crash: Three airlifted from scene

Three people were airlifted to hospital following a serious crash on the M62 this afternoon.

The carriageway was closed in both directions for some time to allow the Yorkshire Air Ambulance to land.

A 61 year old woman was taken to Leeds General Infirmary with serious head injuries. None of the injuries are thought to be life-threatening.

The Westbound carriageway has since reopened, but is expected to be closed Eastbound between J24 - 25 for several hours.
