Highways England say there are delays of up to 40 minutes due to the crash.

One driver had a very lucky escape as the trailer, and their vehicle, flipped just south of Junction 32 around 6.30am.

Police said no one was hurt in the crash.

Preston Police have closed three of four lanes between Junction 32 (Broughton) and Junction 31A (Fulwood).

It’s having a knock-on-effect back to Junction 33 southbound and also back to the M55 junction where it joins the M6, and the Broughton roundabout.

Highways England say they expect all lanes to be open and traffic to clear by around 10am on Friday (1 June).
