Delays of nearly three-quarters of an hour are being experienced on the M6 near Preston.

A vehicle has crashed through the central reservation between on the southbound side of the motorway between Junction 32 and Junction 31A.

Two lanes were closed heading down towards the Tickled Trout junction, and one lane was closed on the northbound carriageway coming up from Junction 31 after an earlier accident.

North West Motorway Police worked with Highways England to clear the scene.

A warning has been issued for motorists not to use the hard shoulder.

Knock on delays are being experienced at the Broughton roundabout as traffic tries to join the M6 southbound from the M55 and A6, and on the M6 itself on the southbound side slow traffic is back to Junction 33 (Garstang).

The incident took place shortly after 6pm on Sunday (29 January).

Normal traffic conditions are now being experienced as the wreckage was cleared and all lanes reopened by 9pm.
