Rush hours delays are expected on the M62 and the M621 due to a technology fault.

Highways England Yorkshire said a fault meant they were unable to open the hard shoulder to traffic on "most of the M62 in West Yorkshire".

Delays are expected particularly on the westbound stretch between junction 30 at Rothwll and junction 27 at Gildersome, and on the M621.

"Our traffic officers and recovery vehicles will be in the area throughout rush hour," a Highways England spokesman said.

"Engineers are working to rectify ASAP."
