The slip road to leave the M1 at junction 45 near Leeds has been closed this morning.

There has been a crash near the turn off for the A63 on the southbound stretch of the motorway and delays are as far back at junction 47 and continuing to build.

Highways England says it has now also closed one lane of the motorway as well as the slip road so emergency services can deal with the incident.
