Part of the M62 was blocked today after a lorry spilt its load of offal over the carriageway.

West Yorkshire Police were called just before noon to the Chain Bar roundabout at Junction 26 of the M62.

A lorry has shed its load over the carriageway and now a specialist team has been called in to help clean it up.

A truck carrying a load of animal guts dumped some of the foul-smelling offal on the M62 south of Bradford forcing police to close two lanes for several hours
