ALL vehicles have now been recovered from an eight-vehicle crash on the A64

near Tadcaster, but motorists are still suffering delays in the area.

Highways England said there were four-mile tailbacks on the westbound carriageway after the collision earlier this morning, which was expected to add 40 minutes to journeys.

"Plan ahead if travelling between York and the A1M,"it added.

Coastliner tweeted: "Due to an eight vehicle accident at Bilbrough Top westbound, we are experiencing severe delays both west and east bound at the moment of over 20 minutes westbound and 15 minutes eastbound, will keep you updated when road clears."

Cityzap tweeted that due to the accident, its buses would be diverting via Wetherby in the Leeds bound direction.

"This does mean we will be unable to serve York College, we apologise for any problems this may cause," it added.

A motorist tweeted that it was probably worth completely avoiding the A64 altogther, as the eastbound carriageway at Bilbrough had queues of about seven miles 'due to people slowing down to nosey at the westbound accident,' adding: "People really need to just focus and not rubber neck."
