Yacht a mess: M62 is blocked by a boat straddling the central reservation

MOTORISTS were left high and dry when a motorway was shut by a yacht which had fallen across the central reservation.

The boat is believed to have come off a trailer on the M62, near Howden, East Yorkshire, at 7.45pm on Saturday.

It happened after a pick-up truck towing it was involved in a collision with an Audi A3. Humberside Police said nobody suffered serious injuries.

One shocked motorist posted a message online, saying: ‘There’s a boat on the motorway. It’s straddling the central reservation. It’s unbelievable.’
