Part of the M6 was closed this morning after a crash.

Two lanes were closed on the southbound carriageway close to Junction 31 for Samlesbury, at the Tickled Trout services.

All lanes have now been reopened and traffic is beginning to clear, although drivers are warned to expect delays in the area until 12 noon.

Highways England traffic officers were on the scene to clear the carriageway.
