Motorists have had long delays this morning after a four-vehicle pile up on the M18 southbound.

At one point vehicles were only able to get past on the hard shoulder after the other lanes were closed, South Yorkshire Police said. The accident happened at 7.15am between J4, A630 (West Moor) and J3, A6182 (St Catherines)

All the lanes have now been reopened.

However there is still congestion to J5, M180 (Stainforth) and on the M180 to J1, A18 (Thorne).

A spokeswoman for South Yorkshire Police said: “We had a four car collision between junctions four and three on the M18.

“We are arranging recovery now. There is no indication anyone was injured.”
