Traffic was brought to a standstill on the Auckland's Northern Motorway today after a boat fell from its trailer.

The accident caused northbound traffic to back up this morning as it was reduced to two lanes, but the boat was cleared and a police spokesman said traffic had returned to normal by noon.
