Drivers were faced with delays on the M55 after a four-car crash.
Traffic was queuing along the motorway early on Wednesday morning due to an accident on the Eastbound carriageway between Junction 3 A585 (Kirkham) and Junction 1 A6/B6241 (Fulwood).
A spokesman for the police said: “Lane 3 was affected and vehicles were being diverted onto the hard shoulder but it is clearing up now.”
All lanes have now been re-opened.
No injuries have so far been reported but some of the vehicles were damaged in the collision.
