Queues from Junction 31 back to Junction 28 have been caused due to a lane out from flooding.

Highways England said the lane, just beyond Junction 30 northbound, had been closed off during Wednesday (5 December).

Delays of up to 20 minutes are being experienced and no time has been given for when the lane will be reopened.

The Met Office is warning of heavy rain throughout the next 48-hours in the city, with Friday carrying a yellow weather warning for strong winds and heavy rain.

Today marks the 60th anniversary of the M6 being opened at Preston.

Elsewhere on the city’s road network there’s reports of standing water on the A59 Penwortham flyover in both directions and on numerous routes in Penwortham.
