A LORRY driver has died after a serious crash on the M62 this morning (Monday).
The motorway was closed in both directions until noon today, causing traffic chaos.
The inside lanes are now both open to traffic, with the middle lanes set to re-open again this afternoon.
Police are still investigating the smash and a recovery operation is set to continue into this evening, resulting in the outside lanes to remain closed.
