A lane is closed on the M62 due to an earlier lorry fire.

A fire crew attended the scene on the eastbound carriageway close to J33 between Pontefract and Knottingley and the vehicle is now waiting recovery.

Meanwhile, there are reports of a three-vehicle pile up on the M62 eastbound close to Huddersfield and several lanes have been closed.
