M2 overturned lorry causing long delays for Belfast motorists

An overturned lorry on Belfast's M2 caused major delays for motorists leaving the city on Friday during rush hour.

The incident happened on the M2 motorway near the Yorkgate rail halt.

Emergency services and recovery vehicles attended the scene. There are no reports of serious injuries.

Traffic is particularly slow on the Westlink and Sydenham bypass.

One lane on the M2 leaving the city is still open. Police said that the recovery operation is likely to continue for a "few more hours".
