RAF helicopter airlifts casualty after M62 crash

A woman has been taken to hospital with suspected spinal injuries after a two-car crash on the M62 in East Yorkshire.

An RAF Sea King helicopter landed on the motorway between Howden and North Cave to airlift the woman to Hull Royal Infirmary.

A six-year-old child was taken to hospital by ambulance as a precaution.

Humberside Roads Policing team closed both carriageways between junctions 37 and 38 following the crash at 11:30 GMT, to allow the helicopter to land.

The Highways Agency said all motorway lanes later reopened.
