A car transporter has overturned closing the north and southbound carriageways of the M1 at junction, close to Denby Dale Road.

A spokeswoman from West Yorkshire Police said the cars from the transporter were currently being removed from the motorway and the banking.

And the M62 was closed at 10.15am after a woman fell from a bridge close the junction 27 at Gildersome, Leeds.

Both carriageways had to be closed to allow the Yorkshire Air Ambulance to land.

The woman was taken to hospital and the motorway is expected to reopen shortly.
