There were major delays on the M6 through Lancashire tonight after a collision near Wigan had a massive knock-on effect on rush hour traffic.

Two southbound lanes were closed initially and delays were building between junction 26 at Standish and junction 27 at Orrell.

The damaged vehicles were removed but long delays built up as far as Leyland and the edges of Preston.
