There are queues on the M62 this afternoon after a car fire.

Two lanes are currently shut on the eastbound carriageway between junction 19 for Heywood and junction 20 for Rochdale.

This is because of a car that has set on fire, according to traffic alert service Inrix.

Congestion is back to junction 18 for Simister Island.

Drivers are being warned of delays in the area.

In a tweet, Manc Traffic said: "Queues and 2 lanes closed on the M62 e/b j19-20. Fire are on scene."
