The Woodhead Pass has now reopened following an incident which forced its closure earlier.
Highways England tweeted at 5pm this evening that they had to shut the road in both directions as a vehicle had broken down and was blocking Salters Bridge.
But they have since tweeted that the road has now reopened.
They warned motorists to still expect some delays while the road network recovers.
It is not yet known when the road will reopen.
