Force Incident Manager, Steve Bradshaw said: "The M65 was temporarily blocked after a one car crash this morning. One woman suffered a suspected broken arm. A HGV kindly blocked the road to protect the car as the accident happened in a live lane. The road has been cleared and we expect the road to re-open shortly."

Police have confirmed that all lanes have now re-opened, although traffic remains slow.
