The eastbound slip road at junction 12, through Salford, has been closed as a result of the collision.

Traffic is building up in the area.

There are currently two diversion options in place:

- Traffic can join the M60 anticlockwise and come off at junction 11, then turn at the roundabout to join the M60 clockwise.

- Drivers can also continue on the M62 eastbound to join the M602, exit at junction 2 then turn at the roundabout to join the M602 westbound and follow the M60 clockwise link road.
