A vehicle fire has led to congestion and delays of around 30 minutes on the M62 between Junction 22 and 21.

Three lanes have been closed as traffic officers deal with the incident on the westbound side of the motorway.

There are reports of smoke spreading across the carriageway which is also making conditions difficult.

Reports suggest that the congestion could be clear by 6pm.
