Have your say

DRIVERS faced long delays on the M55 this morning after two separate crashes caused traffic chaos.

Two lanes of the motorway between junctions one and three , leading towards Blackpool, were closed just after 8.30am after a car hit the barrier.

A second minor crash occurred shortly afterwards in the queuing traffic behind.

Lanes two and three of the motorway remained closed for almost an hour, but all the vehicles have now been removed and the carriageway has fully reopened.

However, drivers are warned extra traffic heading towards The Open Golf means delays are continuing on the motorway, but golf spectators are advised not to alter their route.
