A broken down vehicle is causing huge problems on the roads in Hull this afternoon.

There are reports of huge tailbacks on the A63 heading westbound out of the city with cars being forced to wait in huge tailbacks with cars bumper to bumper.

Officers are warning motorists about the broken down vehicle and to approach the section of the A63, situated close to the Arco building, with caution.

Emergency Services are at the scene while waiting for the vehicle to be recovered.

Humberside Police have tweeted saying: "Traffic is moving slowly on the A63, Westbound near to the Arco building due to a broken down vehicle. Emergency services are in attendance."
