An appeal has now been launched into the collision on the western carriageway of the M62 between junctions 29 and 30, that happened shortly after 1am this morning (December 19).

It resulted in traffic chaos for commuters later on, as the motorway had to be closed at the junction – and only reopened at around 10am, with two miles of congestion along the route.
