A major motorway in East Yorkshire has been closed after a lorry crashed through the central reservation.

The M62 westbound carriageway is shut with traffic queueing from junction 34 for Selby and Doncaster to junction 35 for the M18 and beyond to junction 36.

The road closed at around 7.20am. The vehicle crossing to the other side of the motorway has resulted in two lanes also being closed eastbound.

It also caused congestion northbound on the M18 towards the M62 at junction 35. Queues also formed on routes through Rawcliffe and Little Heck as commuters try and find diversions.
