UPDATE: M1 and M62 lanes now open after earlier incidents


A broken down lorry and an accident caused major problems in Wakefield and Pontefract earlier this afternoon.

At junction 41 for the A650, the M1 lane was closed on the entry slip road southbound at Carr Gate because of a broken down lorry.

In Pontefract, an accident between junction 41 for the M62 and junction 40 closed one lane causing queuing traffic.

Both lanes are now open.
