Traffic officers and police were rushed to the scene of the collision, close to junction 33 (Ferrybridge) shortly after midday.

All traffic in both directions was stopped temporarily to allow the Yorkshire Air Ambulance to land.

The westbound carriageway remained closed for several hours in the wake of the collision, and queues of more than three miles were reported.

Highways England shared details of a diversion while the closure was in place, and advised people to avoid the area.

But the M62 has now reopened to all traffic, and queues have cleared.
