The route into Blackpool has cleared after an earlier incident where a car hit the central reservation on the M55.

North West Motorway Police said the car had spun and hit the central barrier, causing further crashes with several vehicles on the motorway just before junction three at Kirkham.

Police were called at around 10.30am on Sunday.

Drivers were initially warned to consider other routes into the resort to avoid delays, but the vehicles were moved onto the hard shoulder and congestion has since cleared.
