M62 closed in both directions after fatal crash

The M62 is closed in both directions after a man was killed in a crash during the early hours of the morning.

The route is closed from Junction 22 at Rishworth Moor near Oldham to Junction 24.

The crash happened at around 2.30am. Police remain at the scene.

The motorway is likely to remain closed throughout the morning. Diversions are in place and it is hoped the motorway will reopen at noon.

National Highways said: "West Yorkshire Police remain working on scene, and have confirmed the road will likely to remain closed through out the morning while police investigations continue. Once investigations are complete, clear up works will be in operation before re-opening the road to traffic."
