Motorists have been warned to expect severe delays on the M18 in South Yorkshire after an HGV came off the motorway this afternoon.
The Highways Agency said at 4.20pm that one lane had been closed northbound between junctions four and five, near Hatfield in Doncaster, so the vehicle could be recovered after leaving the carriageway.
"We are measuring severe delays on the M18 northbound approach," it advised drivers.
"Road users are advised to allow extra time for their journeys and may wish to consider alternative routes if possible."
