M62 last night (Westbound J24)

Bit of a long shot, but driving home last night (from Bradford to Huddersfield), I was stuck in a queue for about 30 mins between J23 and J24 on the westbound M62.

The gantry signs were saying that J24 was closed but by the time the traffic had cleared I could get off on it.

When I got off the M-Way at J24 at Ainley Top roundabout, I noticed that there were a load of lorries all parked round it with the turnoff to Rochdale blocked off by the police.

Anyone any idea what was going on??

Sounds about right - the mystery is solved!

I haven't bought that paper for yonks... I quite like the tone of it online.

I've added the home page to my news folder now.

You should have nipped into the Hilton hotel for a glass of lemonade...:-)

Bradford Hilton used to be the Norfolk Gardens. Haven't been in there since it changed. Still think it's a stupid name for a Bradford Hotel.
