M6 delays after lorry sheds its load in Preston
Motorists were also battling severe delays on the M6 after an accident involving a lorry this morning (Tuesday, March 7).
Two lanes were closed between junctions 31 (A59 Preston New Road / Samlesbury) and 31a (B6242 Bluebell Way / Longridge).
A lorry appears to have shed its load of hay across lanes 1 and 2, causing both lanes to be closed and leading to congestion back to junction 29 (M65 / Lostock Hall).
It also caused queuing traffic back to junction 9 of the M61 at Walton Summit.
National Highways said the incident caused delays of around 60 minutes on the stretch of motorway through Preston.
