There are major delays on the M62 Westbound today after a diesel spill at J24 (Ainley Top).

Two lanes are closed with queueing traffic for ten miles due to earlier jackknifed lorry. The slip road from the roundabout has also been closed.

There is congestion to Junction 26, for Chain Bar, as vehicles squeeze past the stranded lorry.

Travel time is around one hour 30 minutes.

National Highways England say delays will continue until tomorrow as an assessment has found that resurfacing is required.

This will be completed overnight with a full closure.
