Drivers urged to avoid M180 as incident closes road

Drivers were being urged to avoid the M180 this morning as police deal with an incident on the motorway.

Traffic was “not moving” on both sides between Junction 5 at Barnetby Top and Junction 4 at Scawby but only the westbound side was affected shortly after 8am.

On Twitter, Humberside Police[1] said: “Please avoid the M180[2] westbound between the Barnetby (J5) and the A15 (J4) exits. Emergency services are currently dealing with an incident.”

Traffic reporter Inrix says “all traffic being temporary held” following an accident on the Westbound side.

The motorway has now fully reopened.
