HEAVY traffic is still reported on the M6 this afternoon after earlier incidents.

There were delays of around two-and-a-half hours on the southbound carriageway between junctions 19 and 18 this morning, caused by a crash involving three trucks closing two lanes.

Meanwhile, a broken down truck blocked another lane.

Queues are still stretching back past junction 20 at Lymm, with traffic remaining heavy in the area.

The vehicles involved have now been recovered.
