A second man has died after a crash on the M62 motorway in East Yorkshire.

Police said a pick-up vehicle was parked on the hard shoulder, between junctions 35 and 36, near Goole, when it was hit by a lorry on Friday.

A 30-year-old man died at the scene. A 56-year-old man was taken by air ambulance to hospital, where he died.

Both of the men, who are from Nottinghamshire, were in the pick-up. The lorry driver, a 36-year-old Manchester man, was arrested.

The lorry driver was held on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and was later released on bail until February while inquiries continue.

The eastbound carriageway of the motorway was closed between junctions 35 and 36 for 11 hours after the crash.

Humberside Police have appealed for witnesses to the crash to contact the force.

They particularly want to speak to the driver of a light-coloured van which briefly stopped at the scene before leaving.
